Probably my favorite wedding of 2012 was Dara and Ralf at Sherrill’s Inn up in Hickory Nut Gap. They used some very unusual music for their ceremony and it was so nice. These folks got down on the dance floor and we celebrated under a starry sky.
When we set out to find a DJ we wanted to make sure to get someone who was willing to break away from the common and traditional wedding playlists and play the kind of music we love to hear and dance to. We met with Jakub to discuss our vision and felt instantly that he understand exactly what we wanted & that we were in good hands. We found him to be extremely positive & easy to work with. In every way he did an incredible job. He took great care to identify our favorite tunes, periodically checking in with “what are you listening to these days?” He also demonstrated a sincere enthusiasm about his role in our wedding and that meant a lot to us. And he was always smiling! Our guests raved about the music and everyone got out on the dance floor!

This lovely couple tied the knot Friday May 13th but that did not cause them any bad luck. They wanted a Miami meets Asheville feel and they got it with lots of latin music infused into the dance mix. Dinner was a nice selection of Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans Trio and Miles Davis. The highlight of the night for me was when the Jeniffer’s mother grabbed the microphone and proceeded to sashay across the dance floor with it like a lounge singer!
The Humane Alliance of WNC put on a Spay and Neuter Industry Professionals Summit at the Grove Park Inn this spring and hosted over 800 people from across the nation in an educational and supportive forum. Bright Light Entertainment provided the music for their Thursday reception in the Heritage Ballroom and we put on a good show with the help of Events by Kiersa and the Grove Park Inn. The room looked great with colorful lighting and everyone had a good time mingling and getting settled into the conference. As you might imagine, “Who Let the Dogs Out,” was a big hit with this crowd
