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!

Sydney & Adrian's Artful Wedding, Taubman Roanoke, Roanoke VA

Written by Lead Wedding DJ: David Verde

The Taubman, in my opinion, is one of the highlights to the Roanoke skyline. Yes, it hasn't been there as long as some of the other Roanoke staples, but it's glass walls and metal exterior is marvelous both from the outside, and particularly the inside. When you start thinking about what a wedding might look like in there, your imagination runs a free as likely many of the artists who work is collected and on display inside. With that, Sydney and Adrian's wedding was everything I imagined it could be and more once we started planning and then of course, came to set up for the day. 

The room was primed by Brad from Lighting Ninja's, Blue Ridge Catering, and florist Mark with Creative Occasions so we staged everything so we could quickly go from ceremony to reception. It's amazing how different the room looks between the two setups. 

Providing DJ services, Sydney and Adrian stepped things up by adding our Club Wed enhancement, so I was DJing on full-turntables all night. We also provided dance floor lighting, ceremony sound operation for the both the officiant and the live musician they had. Let's not forget the surprise guitar performance by Adrian singing to his new bride which we had planned a few weeks prior.  

It was a amazing evening! Thanks so much to Adrian and Sydney for allowing me to be apart of their wedding day and big thanks to everyone at the Taubman for their help making their venue accessible for setup and breakdown. Make sure you check out one of the amazing photos the talented Chris Jackson took during their wedding.

Matt & Jess' Daytime barn wedding, Mary's Barn - Mountain lake Lodge, Pembroke, VA

We had a tripleheader (3 back to back weddings), following our mid-summer break from events back in August. We started off the weekend at at Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg for Justin and Nicole's I-Do on Friday. Then we had Matt and Jess' afternoon wedding on Saturday at one of our favorite venues in the New River Valley, Mary's Barn at Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke. It was such a fun time with a family friendly cocktail hour, and Boxy Booth the Photo Booth providing superb photo fun.  We also installed our string lighting Matt and Jess really took the time to have several video calls with our team to make sure everything was perfect which is something we always love to do with our clients. It's that extra planning that makes everyone stress free walking into their wedding knowing everything will be as close to perfect as possible. 

Congrats to Matt and Jess!

Cody & Mady's Wedding, King Family Vineyard, Crozet, VA

What a wonderful day was Cody and Mady's wedding day at King Family Vineyard in Crozet. Just a short drive from our home office, this was our first visit to King Family and hopefully not our last. The sky was full of wonderful white fluffy clouds and the bluest skies, and the sunset dropping below the valley in the distance. Picture perfect is a bit cliche but a accurate description. We ran sound for the ceremony as well as DJ'ed and setup lighting in The Carriage House and couldn't ask for a better setting for a evening of amazing food, donuts, wine, and dancing. 

We've have several amazing options and layouts for King Family Vineyard already and we put those recommendations to work for Cody and Mady. We set up our large 4 speaker PA system to spread sound throughout the room, a wireless speaker was set up in The North Gallery to feed sound for the cocktail hour as well as the rest of the night as ran sound for the ceremony outside in the back field. What we love about The Carriage House is with the dance floor placed near the center rear of the room, we were able to setup a 4-corner lighting setup which once dancing begun, really brought the party vibe to the room. 

Mady and Cody couldn't have asked for a better day and we're so happy to have been there to help them celebrate their wedding day. Congrats!
