Aubrey and Charley's Vineyard Wedding, King Family Vineyards, Crozet VA

Charley and Aubrey found me quite early on in the planning phases of their wedding, which is quite rare since DJs are often the last to be booked. However they knew they were looking for just the right fit, and took the time to email, ask questions, chat on the phone, a video call or two, then also met in person which let our team really get to know Charley and Aubrey quite well. This also made waiting all year for their wedding excruciating as it became more like waiting for a friends wedding after spending so much time planning. It was well worth it as we also got to work with one of our favorite pro planners, Stephanie from Diamond Events. All that said, it was an amazing day at King Family Vineyards in Crozet as guests arrived to a fresh layer of snow on the grounds with the clouds breaking just in time for a fiery sunset. We pumped sound in the main room, we had sound in the bar area, we lite the dance floor. Once the dancing started, there was no stopping them, and this is just how we like it. Bonus points for helping make our last wedding of 2017 a massive party full of love, friendship, and good memories. It was wonderful.

Congrats to Aubrey and Charley!

Zachary & Melanie's Golf Course Wedding, Spring Creek Golf Club, Gordonsville VA

What a wonderful day we had to celebrate the end of summer, by helping Zach and Melanie ring in their wedding day. It was sunny, mild, and beautiful course side at Spring Creek Golf Club in Gordonsville. Providing ceremony sound, and then bring the party to their reception, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening at this beautiful location. Congrats to Zach and Melanie!

Mike & Melissa's Penthouse Wedding, The Penthouse at Center in the Square, Roanoke VA

There is something wonderful about being near the top of the skyline in the start city. People unknowingly going about their day down on the street while two come together to celebrate their first day together as husband and wife. That is how the day went for Melissa and Mike and their wedding at Center in the Square (now known as The Penthouse) in downtown Roanoke. We had a magically time with dancing, and clear skies, all to the backdrop of mountains and the city center, it was, magical.

Congrats again Mike & Melissa

Mikey & Rachael's Country Style Wedding, The Columns at Six Penny Farm, McGaheysville VA

Leading into our second to last wedding of the 2017 season, the brisk fall air and the mountain peaks of the valley fell in the background as the sunset for Mikey and Rachel's wedding at Six Penny Farm in McGaheysville just outside Harrisonburg. Starting the night off with a beautiful ceremony inside, in front of a warm, burning fireplace, all of their family and friends cheered and helped get the party started! We provided our largest PA system, which made perfect fit for the room and Mikey and Rachaels amazing indie, alt, and electronic playlist, a wonderful shift from the norm that complemented their personalities perfectly. I might add, that Mikey owns a local food truck Mashita in Harrisonburg, which with the help of his crew, he pulled double duty over seeing the catering for his own wedding! It’s also the reason why I got a small taste of his culinary skills and I’m not completely addicted to his food truck and eat there nearly every time I, or the crew passes through Harrisonburg. At any rate, we couldn’t have been more lucky to have got to DJ their wedding and had a amazing night helping them start of their married with a bang.

Congrats Mikey and Rachael!

Garrett & Lacey's City Market Wedding, Charter Hall at the Roanoke City Market Building, Roanoke VA

We arrived to the city market in downtown Roanoke, quite excited for two reasons. 1, we got to finally work in the amazing Charter Hall, a space that always seems to avad us, and 2, we got to DJ Garrett and Lacey’s amazing fall wedding. One of the amazing things about Charter Hall is how easily is is completely transformed with some lighting, so we were enlisted by the now newly weds to do some LED uplighting installs and design to help bring all the decor touches together that they put together to decorate each table and the room itself. Started the room first laid out for their ceremony, the wedding party and their guests headed downstairs to the main market level for cocktail hour, while our team and the rest of the amazing vendors helped completely flip the room into their reception. Bonus points for one of our favorite humans and florists, Mark Frye from Creative Occasions handling all the stunning floral arrangements. Once all the guests returned, they finished dinner and kicked off the party with dancing, dancing, and more dancing, which we brought out our largest PA system to help fill that room with some party-worthy sound. It was a smashing good time.

We can’t thank Garrett and Lacey for trusting us for their wedding night and wish them the happiest first year of marriage. Congrats!

Nicolas & Megan's Barnyard Wedding, Old Mill Farm, Bedford VA

With the weather proving to be grey, cold, and windy, we arrived at Old Mill Farm in Bedford ready to do what we could to brighten the spirits of Megan, Nicholas, and their guests. Well we didn’t have to try to hard as we quickly shifted the ceremony from out, to inside the barn with help from the event planners. Then close friends of the bride and groom sang for them with accompaniment by acoustic guitar who completely set the tone for the night. As the ceremony finished, we quickly moved out setup back onto the stage, and following dinner, the lights came down and the Old Mill lit up with love and energy, and guests who danced the whole night. It was one of those days that proves that not even the worst of weather can stop two lovers in becoming one on their wedding day.

Congrats Megan and Nick! We couldn’t have asked for a better group to spend the last weekend of October with.

Katie & Todd’s Country Style Wedding, The Farm Retreat at Willow Creek, Culpeper VA

We’ve seen a lot of magical venues, but The Farm Retreat at Willow Creek surely makes the top of that list and Katie and Todd couldn't have picked a better location for their wedding day. The Farm Retreat’s grounds is left open to all guests, with a fishing pond with swings, and several docks to sit and enjoy the sunset, their cocktail hour was magically relaxing. They did begin their wedding day with a beautiful ceremony with live acoustic mandolin and guitar music in a beautifully set garden. The cocktail hour let guests enjoy the whole grounds as well as the pavilion where we pumped music remotely from the open-air dance floor just below the pavillion. Once everyone was well feed, they joined me down at the dance floor and partied the bride and groom ‘til their feet were tired. Kinda literally since they got a golf cart ride back to the farmhouse to turn in. It was a wonderful time and were so happy to have been their DJ.

Congrats Katie and Todd!

Jeff & Anne’s Mountain Top Wedding, Mountain Lake Lodge, Pembroke VA

It’s never a dull moment when we work events at the beautiful Mountain Lake Lodge. The breathtaking views and wonderful hospitality the lodges staff offer allows guests to enjoy a stress free wedding day.

Anne & Jeff went all out booking nearly all we have to offer at Mountain Lake to help make their dream wedding come to life. One of the unique options now offered at Mountain Lake is ceremonies at the outlook located on the grounds of the old golf course. With nearly 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains, this off-grid ceremony site is one to see. We help the no power problem with our silent running generator to power up our PA and other electronics, couples can now have well amplified music and audio during their ceremony.

Back at Mary’ Barn, we also added to the decor with our string lighting in the barn and hanging lights lighting up the patios entrance, all helping set the mood before our lead wedding DJ, David, fired off the party all night long.

It’s always a great time at Mountain Lake and can’t thank Anne and Jeff enough for having Team DV-E help make their wedding day special.

Congrats again to the Bride and Groom!
