Ghibli & Grace For A Locust Grove Wedding

Locust Grove Estate, The Hudson Valley, Poughkeepsie NY

The Review

“DJ Lou was absolutely the best decision we made for our wedding. He was by far our favorites vendor. The dance floor was always filled. He was able to keep things moving smoothly in a professional way, that kept our wedding going. He gave us tips throughout the night and helped us have the wedding of our dreams. I highly recommend booking him for your event, you will not regret it. He is worth every penny.”

My Observations

Some people may not understand the Ghibli reference in the title, but for those not in the know Ghibli (better known as Studio Ghibli) is a Japanese animation studio that has put out some incredible works in the many decades it’s been around. And Joe Hisaishi is one of the famed composers right up there with John Williams and Michael Giacchino. And this is how the day started for Molly and Alexander at Locust Grove, along with interweaving Piano Guys and Vitamin String Quartet for their ceremony and cocktail vibes.

And we went all over the place for dance including R&B, Pop, Hip Hop, Pop Punk, and ending on a classic We Didn’t Start the Fire.

A true weaving of musical greats and I was glad to be a part of this!
