Because our team sees their fair share of excitement each weekend, we’ve decided to start a blog series, DJ Diaries. Matt, J Clark, Brad, and Brian emcee several weddings each weekend and have some great moments that really made the night memorable. We’re so excited that Molly and Matt’s Mint Springs Farm wedding is our first entry for DJ Diaries!
The Day: While most dread and panic at the risk of rain on their wedding day, it’s actually a sign of good luck! Molly and Matt were drenched (literally) with good luck on their special day. The couple and their guests made the best of it and danced the night away.
The reception barn at Mint Springs Farm was draped in soft ivory flowers, string lights, and candle light. Pictures of Molly and Matt’s parents and grandparents on each of their wedding days served as the main décor around the space. This was the perfect, personalized touch to complete the celebration of two families uniting as one.
Toasts: The father of the bride, Gregg, gave the best toast of all time quoting Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight”. He brought the crowd to their knees and probably created a tear or two.
The Music: Our first song of the night was James Brown’s “Get Up Offa That Thang” and it was the perfect song to kick off Molly and Matt’s dance reception. We played several songs that were big dance floor fillers like Jay Z’s “Big Pimpin,” Sublime’s “What I Got”, and Notorious BIG’s “Big Poppa”.
A large portion of the crowd was from Alabama, and we had a good friendly argument when we played “Sweet Home Alabama” to fuel the Alabama versus Auburn debate. We even sprinkled in “Rocky Top” for our UT fans.
The mother of the bride and groom really put out the dance moves to James Taylor. Andy, one of the groomsmen, was a fan of “No Flex Zone” and “Swag Surfin” and really put on a display of moves. The entire barn was clapping along and cheering.
