A Hudson Valley Lesson In Weddings

Elm Rock Inn, The Hudson Valley, Stone Ridge NY

The Review

“Highly highly recommend Lou Paris for any wedding or celebration need. The entire planning process was seamless with him. As an anxious bride, I would ask him random wedding questions that didn’t pertain to dj/music and he was so helpful. I wish I could recommend him a million times over because he truly took any anxiety about the music/ceremony/speeches and made them absolutely perfect!”

My Observations

It’s funny sometimes how paths cross and you didn’t know until you have that a-ha moment. So I had booked Hanna and Steven in 2021, both teachers, and just had an awesome chill vibe about each other which is a telltale sign for a DJ this would be a good one.

Then in 2023 we had met up to go over our planning forms and we initially started to talk about how their school year was going, and I had mentioned how my daughter Xaia was struggling in a couple of her classes. Well as we were talking I mentioned her name, and Steven looked at me just incredulously as he mentioned “Xaia, what??!”. And then it hit me. “Mr. Voerg?!?!!”.

Yep all this time I had never made the connection that Steven was indeed my Daughter’s Science Teacher.

Oh so this was going to be spectacular because my daughter had just started to help me out time to time on weddings and this would absolutely be the most perfect alignment of the stars! How many students can say they helped to DJ their teacher’s wedding?!?!

Oh and my daughter did get everything together and passed the class. 😉
