Historic Rice Mill Summer Wedding: Angelica & Jordan

Most modern brides and grooms find me by way of my professionally designed website. Some couples will find me by way of a vendor referral or even a referral of a venue.  How about a groom actually seeing me in action at one of my weddings from a few years prior?  When I originally received an inquiry from Angelica's mother, it was discussed that she had found me on Google. When I eventually met Angelica & Jordan in the months leading up to their wedding, Jordan had told me he seen me at one of my weddings from 2014. That wedding would be an amazing celebration from a destination wedding couple from Philadelphia, Reese & Courtney, and would become one of the most memorable weddings of all of 2014. Apparently, Jordan was working part time for one of the premier catering companies in the area and saw me DJ. When I found this out, I was quite humbled that I hadmade that type of impression. To have made such an impact such an someone that they would make a mental note to hire me to be their DJ a full 2 years after seeing me in action was quite the compliment. Angelica & Jordan's  amazing wedding reception at the Historic Rice Mill would occur on July 2, 2016, which would kick off the beginning of an incredible 4th of July weekend

Historic Rice Mill Wedding | Sarah + Ryan Cinco de Mayo 2016

Back on May 2, 2016, I met with Sarah & Ryan at the lovely Historic Rice Mill for the final walk-through and rehearsal for their upcoming wedding on Cinco de Mayo, 2016.  One of the things I absolutely love about the Historic Rice Mill is the layout. You've got the ceremony location conveniently located right outside on the water. As the ceremony wraps out, you can then move inside for cocktails and dinner.  As Thursday, May 5 arrived, the day was absolutely gorgeous, but there was a bit of a breeze at the time of the ceremony being right on the water. The Historic Rice Mill is one of the most beautiful wedding locations in Charleston, because of it's close proximity to the water. Book your wedding ceremony and reception and be prepared for the best views of those amazing sunsets in Charleston.  A little background information. Ryan is a member of the United States Navy and I am proud to show my appreciation for his service to our country by providing all Active Duty members of the military a 10% discount for all of my services. It's the least that I can do for the men and women that give me the freedom to do something I truly love. You'll want to read on for more of the musical details of Sarah & Ryan's beautiful evening at the Historic Rice Mill.

Michelle + David: Their Carriage House Wedding At Magnolia

If you are just finding this blog, you might be interested in knowing that Charleston, SC has blossomed into one of the top wedding destinations over the years. David & Michelle came to me by internet referral back in March of 2015.  Mike Bills Entertainment has spared no expense on it's website, which has allowed modern brides and grooms like David & Michelle (who were located just outside the Washington DC area) to find me and hire me to be their wedding DJ.  I've always been one of those wedding DJs who learned to cater to destination brides and grooms.  They would choose the lovely Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation as the backdrop for their special day, all the while staying in a lovely beach house over on Folly Beach for the days leading up to their big day. Yes, you can actually get married on a plantation while staying at the beach, as lots of couples have done this.  For more information on some of the most beautiful beaches around Charleston, be sure to click the preceding link. David & Michelle had a wonderful taste in music,  and loved the complete latitude that I provide to my clients as it pertains to the selection of the music during their wedding ceremony and reception.

Kristin + Matt: Conservatory At Magnolia Plantation Wedding

The weather in Charleston by the time we make it to the middle of November is some of the most tolerable through out the entire year.  This means that outdoor wedding ceremonies are nice and cool and crisp and the mosquitoes have died off.  And as a professional wedding DJ, it's always cool and refreshing to arrive at a wedding venue and not have to sweat as I load in all my gear and get set up for a wedding. Kristin & Matt came to Charleston, SC for their wedding by way of the Land Of 10,000 Lakes (Minnesota).  With temperatures in the upper 50s - around 60 at the time of ceremony, these temperatures would be warm for this bride and groom from Minnesota.  Fall is one of the best seasons to get married at Magnolia Plantation; especially having your wedding ceremony and reception at The Conservatory.

Fall Pavillion At Pepper Plantation Wedding: Megan + John

If you were to ask me when the absolute ideal time is to get married in Charleston, I would probably give you two options.  You can get married during the April & May timeframe or the October & November timeframe.  These four months in Charleston, SC offer some of the most beautiful weather during the spring and fall.  By getting married during these times during the year, modern brides and grooms get to enjoy their wedding day without all the sweating you'll do for an outdoor ceremony during other times of the year.  In April and May, you can enjoy temperatures in the 70s and 80s with cooler evenings. By October and November, the summer humidity has usually been cut down and temperatures can be mostly in the 70s - near 80. Megan & John were one of the many destination bride and grooms I got to work with back in 2013. John had found my website via Google and sent me a really nice email in regards to his expectations for the wedding DJ out at Pepper Plantation on November 30, 2013.  After reading over John's email, I had a huge smile on my face because I could tell he had taken the time to read about me and it appeared he was genuinely interested in hiring me.

Pavillion At Pepper Plantation Wedding | Theron + Krysten

Theron & Krysten came to Charleston, SC as destination wedding couple and were married on an absolutely gorgeous spring weekend in the Holy City. Their beautiful wedding took place at The Pavillion At Pepper Plantation on Saturday, April 6, 2013. The first Saturday is always the biggest weekend of the year in the Charleston area with the kick off the Volvo Car open, The Flowertown Festival in Summerville, the Cooper River Bridge Run, and so much more. The sun was shining. The flowers were in full bloom and there was a pleasant warmth in the air. Theron & Krysten came to Charleston by way of the great southern city of Atlanta.  I met them in fall of 2012 initially when they booked me for their wedding. If you are coming to Charleston from Atlanta for a destination wedding, you've only got about a 5 hour drive and you are here and ready for one of most wonderful times of your life.  

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.

PROFESSIONAL AND CREATIVE

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.
