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.
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.
What a pleasure it was to DJ the wedding of Joy and Michael Miller. The ceremony was held at Port City Community Church and was followed by a reception at the Bradley Creek Marina. The setting was beautiful. There were tables set up outdoors overlooking the marina and Middle of the Island Catering provided a buffet style dinner and as always the food was to die for. The cake was provided by Apple Annie’s Bake Shop and was gorgeous. After dinner many of the guests made their way to the photo booth provided by DJ Professionals and Video while the groomsmen all changed into tuxedo t-shirts and had a little surprise dance for the couple set to LMFAO’s “I’m Sexy and I Know It”. They certainly got the crowd laughing and further set the tone for a fun filled evening. Chris Lang Photography was there to capture every moment and I am certain got not only some beautiful shots of the venue and décor but also the Soul Train style dance that quickly formed on the dance floor. Sarah Coe and Olivia Prevatt were the wedding coordinators and kept everything flowing with ease. By the end of the night the couple wasn’t ready for the fun to end so we kept it going for an extra half hour at their request. After saying their goodbyes and thanking their guests the happy couple was sent off under a tunnel of sparklers leading to their limo provided by A&K Limousine Service. On behalf of everyone at DJ Professionals and Video I want to thank Mike and Joy for allowing us to be a part of your amazing day.
We here at DJ Professionals & Video had the distinct pleasure of DJ’ing the Emsley A. Laney High School Prom at the Community Arts Center in downtown Wilmington. With a crowd topping 150 the normally reserved arts center resembled a hot new club for a few hours. It was evident that those in charge of organizing and setting up the event had put in a lot of hard work and it made for what appeared to be a great night for the students in attendance. From everyone here at DJ Professionals and Video we would like to thank the students and faculty at Emsley A. Laney High School for allowing us to be such an important part of your wonderful evening.
The couple’s grand day began with their wedding at Grace United Methodist Church. After a wonderful ceremony the guests made their way to the reception at The River Room. Melissa was the venue manager for the evening and did an amazing job ensuring that every detail had been arranged. She greeted each guest at the door and the couple could not have asked for a better location to celebrate with their friends and family.
It is always a pleasure to work with a true professional photographer like Ray Baca, who was assisted by Hillary and that day was no exception. Ray and Hillary captured each moment and their job was made much easier by the beautiful surroundings. The wedding cake was showcased beautifully by the river walk window. We enjoyed the Henrietta III Riverboat tooting its horn and passing by The River Room as dusk approached.
The dance floor stayed full, and everyone appeared to have an amazing time before the bride and groom left the reception under a shower of bubbles from their 100+ guests. We wish Mr. and Mrs. David Hoxie nothing but happiness and thank them for allowing DJ Professional & Video to help begin their new lives together in such spectacular fashion.
It was an honor and privilege to help make Gail and Brandon’s wedding reception a night full of fun, romance, love, and dancing! The Balcony on Dock Street was the venue they chose and Verzaal’s Florist helped bring the room to life with an amazing combination of candles, table settings, and floral arrangements accented with the colors of spring. The newlyweds began the night with their first dance to the tune of “Not Fire, Not Ice” by Ben Harper. The guests appeared joyous and excited as they watched the happy couple share the dance floor for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Graham. Dinner soon followed with a wonderful meal provided by The Balcony on Dock Street. Shortly thereafter, it was time to cut the wedding cake and fill the dance floor. We wish Mr. and Mrs. Graham a wonderful new life together and nothing but the best in all of their future endeavors. Thank you for choosing DJ Professionals and Video to help make your special day everything you had dreamed it would be!
