Caroline and Mike had their Wedding this past weekend at Wrightsville Manor in Wilmington, N.C. Guests arrived for the service in the courtyard as we played a few classic pre-seating songs. Caroline chose “Wonderful Tonight” performed by The Vitamin String Quartet as she was escorted down the isle. Ray Garrison officiated and delivered a nice service and vow exchange for the couple. After being pronounced as husband and wife, Mike kissed his bride and they recessed to “Shut up and Dance” by The Vitamin String Quartet.

During cocktail hour took place out on the terrace as we had a few classic rock artists such as Van Morrison, James Taylor, Counting Crows, and Fleetwood Mac to set the mood. Lauren Millard with KMI Photography took the wedding party for photos as guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

Everyone moved inside from the terrace after cocktail hour to prepare for introductions and dinner. A Thyme Savor Catering catered the event and filled everyone with an excellent meal. Amy Soderena with Do Me A Favor Weddings provided excellent coordination and kept the event on track.

For Introductions, we brought in the bridal party to “I believe in a thing called love” by The Darkness and then transitioned straight into their first dance to “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” by Starship. Caroline and her father shared a dance to “Sweet Baby James” by James Taylor. Mike and his Mother shared a special dance to “Someone to watch over me” by Rod Stewart. We had a welcome by the host followed by a blessing of the meal as dinner began.

After dinner we had a few heart felt toasts followed by a cake cutting to “How Sweet It Is” by James Taylor.  A big shout out to Kelly Renkin with The Bosco for providing a fun night for the guests with the photo booth. The room looked amazing as Shelley with Fiore Fine Flowers worked hard to create a gorgeous look for this event. Everyone danced and sang all night as we entertained them with great music. Guests gathered out on the terrace for the sparkler exit after the last dance of the evening and we all wished Caroline and Mike congratulations. Congratulations to you both and thank you for choosing Coastal DJ & Video for your special day!
