A Cali-Themed Wedding In Kingston NY

Senate Garage, The Hudson Valley, Kingston NY

The Review

“DJ Lou is the best! Highly recommended! It was clear he took great care in ensuring his set was aligned with the vibe of our wedding (in our case, it was California-themed; we live in L.A. but had to have the wedding back home in NY). He did this by encouraging us to have a couple pre-planning sessions with him leading up to the date. On the day of, several of our friends and family members raved about how fun his set was, going so far as to say that it was the best music they’d ever heard at a wedding reception! He also gave us some helpful unsolicited advice around how to manage all the stress, anxiety, and excitement that came with planning our wedding. Many thanks to DJ Lou!”

My Observations

“Joshua Tree Night”. That was the first descriptor of the evening Christopher and Griffin imagined for their night at the Senate Garage here in the original capitol Kingston NY. And with everything planned including a VW Bus photo booth it was absolutely fated to be a blast.

And let’s not forget memorable. With their Godmothers Patricia and Elaine co-officiating their ceremony, the choice of an upbeat first dance with You Make Loving Fun by Fleetwood Mac, and DJ’s choice for the dance music, this one was a great one to flex a little extra creativity into the mix.
