Multi-Cultural Wedding With Style
This wedding at the Indian Spring Country Club celebrated the union of an Indian bride and Korean Groom. It was planned at a distance: the bride and groom live in California, but the wedding was held in New Jersey, close to the bride’s family. All the meetings and conversations took place over the phone or using Google Hangouts for video conferencing. The bride wanted to include some Bollywood hits and provided a list of songs that she and her family like. The groom’s music was from his college days where he and his friends used to host excellent parties. The combination made the wedding a memorable experience for everyone involved.

Classic Rock on Records
This wedding took place on a gorgeous day in late June at Spring Hill Manor in Rising Sun, MD. It was fun planning the music with the bride and groom. The couple asked for a lot of classic rock, and even brought some of their favorite records with them to the wedding. I was so inspired by their vinyl collection, I surprised them a copy of Salt-N-Peppa’s “Whatta Man” on a record. Through the night, I was able to switch over to vinyl for a some songs, including “Golden Years” by David Bowie and “We’ve Only Just Begun” by The Carpenters.

This fun wedding was at the recently opened Hotel Monaco, a Kimpton Hotel, diagonally across from Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The bride and groom both work at nationally recognized, innovative Jewish start up organizations. Musically, they wanted a lot of energy and dancing, particularly when they made their post-ceremony entrance.

I met the couple six months before their wedding. At our first meeting we discussed their musical likes and dislikes. We talked about the wedding itself: how many people, who will be in the room, what they envision happening on that day. After thinking about the guests and the flow of the wedding, we turned our attention to music. When they shared their love for Society by Eddie Vedder, I knew it was going to be a special wedding.

International Sounds in a Unique Setting
This was a great wedding, featuring a fantastic couple, diverse crowd and beautiful rustic backdrop. The wedding took place in a historic building called Prallsville Mills in Stockton, NJ, right across the bridge from New Hope, PA. The ceremony and dinner were upstairs and the party and dancing — where the DJ system was set up — was downstairs. The wedding guests didn’t wait for dinner to be over before they starting trickling downstairs for the party. Continue reading Prallsville Mills Wedding
