Mountain Views for Miles

wedding photography couple flowersBeing based in central North Carolina, we don’t see a lot of mountains in our day-to-day lives. While we do have some hills, it’s always a treat to be able to head out west. The mountains of NC definitely have a lot of very cool venues, but one of the coolest ones we’ve seen is Point Lookout Vineyards in Hendersonville, NC. A winery that boasts panoramic 30-mile views, it’s definitely a sight to behold. From the back of the venue, the view truly does seem to go on and on and on. And when that’s coupled with views of the rows of grapes, it just makes it that much cooler. We’ve been to a decent amount of vineyards across the state (they definitely do make for very cool venues). But there’s something different about a vineyard in the mountains. And that something different was, without a doubt, a contributing factor in what made this wedding unique. We really can’t say enough about how the venue was able to transform for a uniquely “wedding” look. They have different types of events all throughout the year, all with different aesthetics. And often when we encounter venues like that, you can tell they’re not specifically wedding venues. However, that was not the case here. The way the tables were made up and just the aesthetics of everything were that perfect wedding look. In our travels we’ve seen many many different venues. So you can trust us when we say this one was top tier.

DJ Ryan was so easy to work with! He was prompt, flexible, and supportive of our tastes and preferences. Dow Oak Events was within our budget, provided a lot of support and helpful items within their client portal, and very easy to work with as far as payment and planning. We were very pleased with our choice and would recommend them to others!

An Intimate Reception

wedding dinner photographyMany times we’re just booked for the party. Being DJs, that’s something we understand. The general perception seems to be that when it’s time to party, it’s time to call the DJ. But that’s not the case with every wedding we do. With some weddings, we’re able to be a part of the more intimate aspects of the day. Which is always something we remember. And yes, we do still get to bring the party. It’s an extra special day for us when we’re able to be a part of the whole celebration from start to finish, or from prelude to last dance. This was one of those cases. We got there a little earlier than we typically do to make sure that everything was set and 100% ready to go. With smaller guest counts, it’s necessary to make absolutely certain that everything is ready to go when the big moments happen. We’re happy to report that everything to do with Emily and Kristopher’s ceremony and reception went flawlessly. Though with the way we set up our planning process, very little is left to chance. Which is just the way we like it. The music selections were great, starting with acoustic guitar and cello covers for the ceremony and prelude. For the other big events throughout the night, guests were treated to The Darkness, Judah & the Lion, and Owl City. Which were some very refreshingly unique choices. In the end, we were happy with our performance, and Emily and Kristopher were happy with their big day. And that’s the most important thing to us.

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.
