The Brown’s New Years Wedding

With so much going on for New Year's Eve it was the perfect time for Ra'Quel and Stephon to start a new life challenge. What a amazing wedding it was located in the heart of Durham @ Bay 7. When I saw the videos of the wedding reception I knew it was a PARTY. The Brown's let Cool Receptions handle all their entertainment needs. Dj B-Man was their choice and they didn't know what they were in for, but B-Man knew just what to do and set the party off. Cool Receptions - The Brown's Wedding NYE from Cool Receptions on Vimeo.

ALL WE DO IS NGUYEN!

A month before I asked Angela about her songs she wanted me to play for the specific dances, she said her dad didn't have one picked, so she said "you choose the song for my dad and I to dance too" Angela's dad had no idea what song I was going to play, to be honest I had no idea how he was going to react or if he even knew the song.

Seeing Angela's dad cry while dancing during the father/daughter song was an amazing moment to me as I would see how I would react when it's...

I really don't have much to say.... the pictures sum everything up! When you grow up in the 90's I am pretty sure you take your music seriously....
