Outer-Banks-Wedding-DJ-Bogley-LundlbadStephanie Bogley and Eric Lundblad became Mr. and Mrs. Lundblad last Saturday, September 14, 2013 at The Sanderling Resort in Duck, NC. The lawn behind the dunes provided the perfect place for the ceremony.
Cocktail hour proceeded right after with a light island theme. Guests enjoyed music, games, snacks, beverages, and even a fire pit during cocktail hour on the deck behind the Event House. Once the Bride and Groom were finished getting the day captured on film, they joined their guests at the reception.
After dinner, traditional dances preceded the dance party. Once the party was underway, the dance floor was full for the remainder of the evening. Guests enjoyed 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s disco, pop, and rock. Modern artists provided current hits as well, and the mix kept all ages entertained. The Sanderling provided the perfect venue, and we provided the appropriate acoustic accompaniment.
Congratulations, Stephanie and Eric, and thank you for choosing Coastal DJ and Video as your Outer Banks Wedding DJ.

Hein/McGeouph Wedding at 108 Budleigh in Manteo, N.C. – 7/17/2013

Kristin-Tim McGeouphKristin and Tim were happily married on July 17, 2013 at 108 Budleigh in Manteo, N.C. With the kick-off being a nice ceremony on the lawn out next to 108 Budleigh. Music and sound was provided by George Wainwright with Coastal DJ & Video. Ceremony songs included the Vitamin string quartets “Yellow” by Coldplay and “Ho Hey” by the Lumineers, then a nice recessional to “In my life” by the Beatles. After the exchange of vows Kristin and Tim, family & friends gathered inside for cocktail hour with Hors d’Oeuvers provided by Black Pelican Catering doing a fabulous job each and every time they cater a wedding!
As soon as cocktail hour ended it was time for Introductions of the bride & groom. We brought Kristin and Tim into the room to “Shipping off to Boston” by Dropkick Murphy’s. Immediately following the Intro, we played their first dance to one of my favorites “Me and You” by the Dave Matthews band. There were lots of great songs that were chosen by Kristin and Tim for dinner such as Jack Johnson, Grateful Dead, John Butler Trio, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Bob Marley, and songs from the Rat pack era such as Frank Sinatra.
Marie Russell from Bordeaux Events was at absolute dream to work with as always making sure the order of events and times of first dances, toasts, cake cutting, etc. took place.
All in all this was a very fun wedding with only 35-40 people. Everyone had fun dancing and singing to great music and enjoying being a part of Tim and Kristin’s Big Day!
We would like to thank Rich Coleman from “Coleman Shots Photography” for the great pictures taken on wedding day! Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Tim McGeouph and thank you so much for the opportunity to be a part of your wedding in the Outer Banks.

Ellis – Leonard Wedding at Duck Woods Country Club – 6/29/2013

imageDuck Woods Country Club hosted the wedding reception celebrating the union of Nicholas Leonard and Kassandra Ellis on Saturday, June 29, 2013. The newlyweds entered the room to the tune of “All I do is Win.” The eight couples of the wedding party preceded them with similar style, each with their own entrance song. This was a really great start to a very festive reception, and was an indicator of the fun to come.
Coastal DJ and Video staff are adept at providing the perfect music for every group, and we have an arsenal of music that facilitates this challenging task. Nick and Kassandra left all the music choices to Coastal DJ & Video and their guests. This allows us to demonstrate our knowledge of music and our ability to perform for the masses. Delving deep into our extensive music library, I was able to provide music spanning more than 60 years to accommodate the diverse crowd. As the night progressed and the energy peaked, revelers of all ages demonstrated their tireless enthusiasm with non-stop dancing to classic Hip-Hop and modern R&B and Country. What a blast!
Congratulations to the newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Leonard. Thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day festivities. Wishing you the best of luck in your endeavors together.

Layman – Durand Wedding at Hilton Garden Inn – 6/23/2013

Layman-imagePaul Durand and Malinda Layman became Mr. and Mrs. Paul Durand on Sunday, June 23rd on the beach next to the Pier at the Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk. This is Karl with Coastal DJ and Video with your details on this magical evening.
The ceremony was a heartwarming one, as Malinda’s father was the officiant. Nearly 100 friends and family witnessed the exchange of the vows, and a sand ceremony accompanied by Andrea Bocelli’s rendition of the Lord’s Prayer. After the official business was done, the party was underway beginning with cocktail hour in the Pier House venue.
Cocktail hour was classy and festive, with classic jazz and singers from Miles Davis and John Coltrane to Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. Following the Cocktail hour was the Grand Introduction of the Wedding party and the newlywed couple. Dinner was amazing, and included even more jazz favorites. The dinner timeline was cut short, however, as the guests were ready to dance and get festive. I was glad to oblige and got them moving without delay! The rest of the night it was quite a party, these guests rocked the pier back and forth with their enthusiasm! Thank you, Paul and Malinda, for having Coastal DJ and Video provide your entertainment for your perfect wedding. Congratulations and best of luck to you both.
