Teri & Michael A Fall-Like Afternoon In August On Folly Beach

27 August 2012

Teri & Michael's ceremony began around 5pm as the bridal party (still in the somewhat bright summer sun). The bridal party descended into the back of the house near the beach to the Train song "Marry Me". As Teri and her father descended down the stairs, I faded out Train and moved into "Love Me Tender" by Norah Jones.

"Love Me Tender" by Norah Jones was complimented on quite frequently by guests after I played it. It wasn't a cover that I knew Norah had done until Teri had requested I play it for her. It took a while for me to locate. After digging and searching, it was stuck on a hard to find Greatest Hits CD released in 2008.

For the cocktail and dinner portion of the evening, I kept to a jazz and traditional music set with some contemporary artists mixed in. Artists ranging from Billie Holiday to Frank Sinatra to Louis Armstrong to John Coltrane to Michael Buble to Van Morrison, as well as Diana Krall's "The Look Of Love".

For Teri and Michael's first dance, I cued up an incredible cover of the 90s classic by Oasis called "Wonderwall" performed by Ryan Adams. It was the perfect song for a perfect time.Shortly after, I asked Teri's father to join his daughter on the dance floor for their dance. "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw.

I then opened up the dance floor for requests as we capped off the evening with their final dance to "I Cross My Heart" by George Strait,Then, a lovely Sparkler Sendoff (which I can't wait to see photos on). I chose the classic Dirty Dancing song "I've Had The Time Of My Life" by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes.


Highly Recommend

DJ Mike delivered well organized and orchestrated results that made for a great wedding and reception! Couldn't have picked a better DJ to cover our event and truly appreciated his availability to pick up the job and execute in such a short time period. I highly recommend his services, overall great quality.

Before choosing Mike Bills as our wedding DJ, we looked at several companies and DJs and looked over the reviews for all of them. We chose Mike Bills because of the overwhelmingly great reviews he got and I am so glad we did! They were all spot on! Mike was great to work with, quick to respond, came to our rehearsal to do a run through with us.

Mike was kind, courteous, professional, and creative! We thoroughly enjoyed working with him for our destination wedding at Folly Beach. We gave Mike minimal guidance and he caught on to our "style" quickly and efficiently. Our guests are still raving about the music selections, and how they were a great balance of new tracks and standards for everyone to enjoy.
