Mr. & Mrs. Byron Batson
Having been the DJ for over 425 different weddings, it is such a pleasure to see a new spin on the “Classic Wedding”. Knowing I would be at the ever beautiful River Landing in Wallace, NC was the beginning of a great night, but later finding out that this would be a baseball themed wedding turned out to be quite a treat! The bride and groom truly thought of everything! From standing on home plate to exchange their vows and exiting their ceremony under crossed baseball bats, to the baseball themed cake and baseball jersey that doubled as their guest book! There were several small touches through the night that were in keeping with the theme. For example, the bride and groom chose to have the classic “Who’s On First” by Abbott and Costello played while guests were making their way through the buffet. Anyone who has ever been to see a baseball game knows that at some point during the course of the night, Abbott and Costello will make an appearance. The groom provided the centerpieces which each housed a baseball as a reminder of the theme the bride and groom selected. The groom also designed and arranged all of the bouquets for the bridesmaids as well as the decor behind the bride and groom’s table. In keeping with the baseball motif the bride and groom provided small bottled coca-cola and peanuts as well as cotton candy and Cracker Jacks as gifts to their guests. The entire bridal party was introduced as “The Starting Line-up” and each couple had a batting position. Once introduced the couple danced to “The Earth, The Sun, The Rain” by Color Me Badd. Family and guests all had a stellar evening enjoying fine food, wonderful entertainment and great fellowship. We at DJ Professionals and Video would like to extend a very warm “Thank You” to the new Mr. & Mrs. Batson for allowing us to be a part of their special day.
