I was thrilled to DJ another Daughter of the Royal family’s wedding! I had DJ’d oldest Daughter Christine’s wedding 2 years earlier and had a blast at that one!
The 100 guests arrived to The Proximity Hotel in Greensboro for the ceremony and were treated to live music by classical guitarist extraordinaire Matthew Kanon who also performed Jessica & Gabriel’s ceremony music and cocktail hour. I always enjoy hearing him play!
After the cocktail hour on the bottom floor, the guests made their way to the main floor for the reception. After the guests had found their seats Jessica & Gabriel entered the room to thunderous applause and had their first dance. I invited Jessica’s Father to join her on the floor for their dance and after a minute Gabriel escorted his Mother to the floor to dance as well. Jessica’s Father did another hilarious welcome and the salads and entrees came out. During dinner I had a mix of soft rock, classic soul and standards playing.
After dinner I opened the floor with “The Hora” and it filled within 30 seconds. From there it was a great dance party for the next 2.5 hours with a mix of oldies, current dance music and a couple line dances. We paused for toasts, the cake cutting, bouquet & garter tosses during the night and then back to dancing.
The night ended with “Sweet Caroline” and finally “Save The Last Dance For Me” before a bubble exit from the front of the Hotel.
This was one of my favorite weddings, and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget! I can’t wait to do it all again in May for their last daughter Stephanie & Joshua’s wedding!
Thank you again and see you in May!
