There are few things that can “dampen” spirits when there is a wedding afoot. However, when a hurricane gets thrown into the mix, that changes things. Kyle and Lindsey had a simple, beautiful plan. Wedding on the beach at Bald Head Island, reception at the beach house. With weather impending, Kyle’s mom Carol snapped into action! She crafted a new plan that moved the wedding ceremony up to the house and the reception to the Bald Head Association Center. As the week went on and the weather forecast grew more bleak, Carole sprung into action once more. The ceremony was then moved to the beautiful Bald Head Island Chapel and the reception was still to be at the association center. Now with a solid plan, Carol also handled all of the floral arrangements for the event and awaited the arrival of family and friends. Then there was the small matter of the ferry. There was some fear of the winds from the impending HURRICANE exceeding the maximum safe speeds for the ferry to operate. Thankfully, there were no such complications. All guests arrived safely on the island and the event went over like a charm! After their ceremony and introductions, the couple danced their first dance together to “Ocean” by Hannah-McEuen. All those in attendance enjoyed wonderful food provided by The Market and each table w donned with its own cake prepared by Bobby Blackmon. With Annie Liles capturing the festivities, I’m sure that the couple will have excellent images with which to remember their day. I am quite certain that some of those images will showcase the couples vintage theme that included individual antique place settings and tables named with traditional southern terms of endearment including “Dear” , “Honeybunch” and the like. We at DJ Professionals and Video were happy to provide the entertainment for the couple and wish them many years of happiness.
The RiverRoom is always a beautiful place to have an event. From the incredible view to the professional staff, you just can’t go wrong. RiverRoom event planner, Melissa Mendoza is a pleasure to work with and extremely detail oriented. Her ability to make things happen in a smooth and timely manner is unparalleled. With flowers provided by Moxie Floral Design Studio and DJ Professionals and Video providing the entertainment, the new Mr. & Mrs. Luis & Linnsey Baltierrez had a true “A-Team”! A family friend provided food for the event and it was fantastic! The couple held their ceremony on the deck outside The RiverRoom and moved inside for their reception. Overlooking the beautiful Cape Fear River, the happy couple and their guests enjoyed a relaxing night of food, fellowship and of course great music. We wish the new Mr. & Mrs. Baltierrez all the best and extend them many thanks for allowing us to be a part of their special day.
Due to the nature of our business, we don’t very often get the opportunity to “play for the kids”. That’s one of the things that make the kids night at the Figure 8 Island Yacht Club so great. Jennifer Mitchell and all of her staff at the club are a ball of fun! The kids get to choose their menu and even have a hand in choosing the DJ that plays for them! I have been fortunate enough to not only be chosen, but also be the only DJ to EVER provide music at these parties! The kids come to the party knowing that the food is something they picked. The music is played by someone that they picked and Jennifer and her staff have some wonderful games and activities for them to enjoy while they are there. We teach different line dances, make up crazy dances, break piñatas and just have LOADS of fun! Thanks again to the kids and staff of the Figure 8 Island Yacht Club for choosing DJ Professionals & Video and we look forward to each and every one of these parties this summer!
When Sarah Stancil and Jason Fuller planned their reception they knew they wanted to have a good time. If dancing with your friends and smiling all night is their idea of a good time, then mission accomplished my friends!
The reception took place at the Carolina Beach Courtyard Marriot and as always Brittany Drake and her staff did a fabulous job. They are an absolute pleasure to work with. The weather threatened all night however we got nothing more than a wonderful beach breeze. This was much to the delight of the happy couple and their guests as they needed it in between long bouts on the dance floor.
Jeff Poole from Indigosilver Studio was on hand to capture all the action, on and off the dance floor. With over 100 friends and family in the ballroom of the Marriot and a beautiful couple grinning from ear to ear there were plenty of amazing moments to catch.
On behalf of everyone here at DJ Professionals & Video I want to thank Sarah and Jason for allowing us to be a part of their special day.
I was delighted to start this weekend off with a surprise birthday party, my favorite type! Rick and Martha Blacher are no strangers to DJ Professionals & Video. Two years ago we DJ’d Rick’s surprise 60th birthday party. This year Rick decided to turn the tables on his wife Martha and asked that we return. How could we say no? We couldn’t and we wouldn’t and why would we…these people know how to party.
I was told that getting a surprise birthday party planned, without Martha finding out, was no easy task for Rick. He did a great job however as over 150 of Martha’s friends and family, some coming from out of state, filled the Country Club of Landfall. As always the staff at Country Club of Landfall was a pleasure to work with. Food stations set up around the room kept people nibbling throughout the night. This was important as they needed to keep their energy up for the dance floor.
We at DJ Professionals & Video had a blast partying it up with Martha and Rick and thank them so much for once again choosing us to bring the party on their special day. We look forward to the next party.
It was a great pleasure for us here at DJ Professionals & Video to be asked to take part in the nuptial celebration of Katie Nolan and Matt Saas. They had a touching ceremony at Kenan Chapel in Landfall that included a candle lighting ceremony incorporating the Mom’s of the happy couple lighting individual candles followed by the newlyweds joining the flames.
Matt was beaming as he stared into the eyes of his new bride and it was clear, as he had reference in his vows, that they truly were “best friends”.
Matt and Katie had “warned” me before hand that both sides of the family were there to celebrate and have a good time and that they did! Fortunately RGCVideo and Charo Photo were on hand at Lumina Hall Event Center to capture all of the action. Charo and I have worked together before and she was amazing as always.
Middle of the Island Catering was providing food which always brings a smile to my face. This was my third wedding in a row with them and that may explain the few extra pounds I have been carrying around recently. Their food is always excellent and the staff is top notch.
With dinner out of the way the party cranked up a few notches. Both sides of the family loved to dance however it was 11 year old usher and cousin Caleb Wiler who took over the dance floor. Caleb was a hit and one of the best young dancers I have seen in a while.
It was a wonderful day with two beautiful families and we here at DJ Professionals & Video cannot thank Matt, Katie and of course Aunt Theresa enough for allowing us to be a part of it. We wish the happy couple a lifetime of love and joy!
What a beautiful day on Bald Head Island for the wedding of Jonathan Griffin and Brittany Cole. The weather was truly perfect. At the end of Bald Head Island is a place called “The Shoals Club”. If you have never had the opportunity to take in the breathtaking scenery at The Shoals Club, it should be on your list of things to do in the near future! From the back of the club, you have a 180 degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and on a day like this one, it is simply breathtaking.
Brittany and Jonathan had their ceremony at the chapel on the island, another of its many gorgeous settings. With the ceremony completed, they proceeded to have picures and video taken on the beach. Pictures were captured by the ever talented Anne McGowan and videography services were provided by our own Brick Street Cinemas. The couple then gathered their bridal party and after a quick line up proceeded to have each couple dance in to their own music! These guys definitely came to have a good time! With dances, dinner and some heart wrencing toasts out of the way, we started their dance party. Not only did the couple stay on the dance floor all night, but their guests were right there with them! It was truly a pleasure to be chosen to provide DJ services for the new Mr. & Mrs. Jonathan and Brittany Griffiin. We here with DJ Professionals & Video and Brick Street Cinemas wish them a long and prosperous new marriage.
DJ Professionals & Video had the pleasure of providing DJ services for newlyweds Brian and Sarah Blake at The Balcony on Dock Street. Jenn Rayle and the team at The Balcony on Dock Street did an amazing job setting up the room with black tablecloths and pink napkins for the couple’s 150 plus guests. The girls at Moxie Floral Design Studio out did themselves yet again with amazing arrangements all around the room while Jacki and Angie of Baca Photography captured all of the great memories throughout the evening. With an A-Team like this it should come to no surprise that The Three Divas provided a cake so stunning to look at you almost didn’t want to cut into it…almost. Every couple is unique and this couple was no different. The newlyweds were introduced to their guests to Michael Jacksons “The Way You Make Me Feel” followed by their first dance set to Stevie Wonders “My Cherie Amor”. It was truly a great evening and on behalf of everyone here at DJ Professionals & Video I thank Brian and Sarah for allowing us to be a part of their special day and wish them a lifetime of laughter and love.
We at DJ Professionals & Video were honored to take part in Dave and Ellen Dibble’s glorious wedding day. The festivities began on the 3rd deck of the Henrietta III as the couple said their I Do’s while coasting down the Cape Fear River. Lisa from Bella Rose Photography was there to capture all of their amazing moments. Immediately following the ceremony the crowd came downstairs to the 2nd deck where the party really got going. It truly was a beautiful wedding and the reception rocked! Thanks to Dave and Ellen for allowing DJ Professionals & Video to help make their special day one they will remember forever.
The Clubs at St. James Plantation held their annual Ladies Golf Tournament and this year’s theme was “Diamonds are Forever”, or as it was more commonly called…”Bling Bling”. The décor and set up were as fabulous as you would expect and the food provided by the staff at The Reserve Club was equally impressive. The ladies had a great time and rarely left the dance floor, instead choosing to dance the night away. We are so thankful The Clubs at St. James Plantation allowed DJ Professionals & Video to take part in their event and look forward to returning next year.
