A True Mountain Venue

And it also becomes one of your favorite parts of hosting weddings. Variety is the spice of life, and no where is that more true than in wedding ceremonies and receptions. In that same vein, no two mountain weddings we’ve seen have been the same. And this one kept up that trend.

Though our home base is in Greensboro, NC, we really are all over the place. One weekend we’ll be all the way down on the coast and the next weekend we’ll find ourselves winding through the mountains of western North Carolina. Every region we travel to has it’s own appeal, but there’s always something a little extra cool about getting to travel to the mountains. It might be because we’re piedmont-based, thus more used to hills, but who knows.

In terms of cool mountains venues, Rumbling Bald Resort in Lake Lure, NC is one of our favorites. Not only are we there a good amount, the area looks awesome. With Rumbling Bald nestled between the lake and the mountains, it makes for a combination of gorgeous views. It’s always a treat to go to the mountains any time of year, but seeing it in the fall is a different story. Words don’t do it justice.

Rumbling Bald Resort is definitely a venue we’ve come to enjoy. We have a few weddings currently booked there later this year, and we’re excited to make our way back west.

Dow Oak Events did the music for my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Any concerns I had, DJ Mason was there to assist and alleviate any pressure… I received many compliments after the wedding saying our music was so amazing. All the music was perfect and I would definitely use Dow Oak Events again – and ask for Mason. Thank you again!!!

Unique and Intimate

table set up for nc weddingWhile super-hype, 250 people, raging receptions are undoubtedly an awesome time, there’s also something to be said for the more intimate receptions. And since we’ve seen the full gamut of receptions, you can trust us when we say both are great in their own way. Sometimes a celebration calls for a total throw-down and an extensive guest-list. But other times it calls for a more intimate approach. And an intimate approach was the way Shannon and Derek went.

It was our pleasure to be part of this celebration. And we were a part of it from the very beginning, which was also very cool. We got there a little earlier than we usually do to make sure that everything was all set and ready to go for the ceremony prelude. And, admittedly, for a little extra time to take in some of the views. And that preparedness paid off when the ceremony went completely perfectly.

We’re also pleased to report that the rest of the reception also went perfectly. We got to play a ton of great music (obviously something we love). From Ed Sheeran to Ludacris to Justin Timberlake, we had a lot of jams on deck.

All-in-all, Derek and Shannon’s mountain wedding at Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure was one that we’ll remember for a long time to come. When everything goes well and the venue is so great, it all comes together for an amazing night.

Final Thoughts

And as a final note, we just need to say… We absolutely love what we do. Being a part of the unique and personal ways couples celebrate is why we do it. And we loved being a part of this celebration. It’s always awesome to see how couples choose to celebrate.

In conclusion, we’ve learned that being a wedding DJ isn’t just about playing the music. So we take our role seriously. Facilitating such a big day is a serious job! That’s why we always give every wedding or event our all.
