A Beautiful Windham Mountain Wedding

Windham Mountain, The Catskills, Windham NY

The Review

“Let me just say…you want DJ Lou as your DJ.

From our first phone call to the moment the wedding ended DJ Lou was professional, unbelievably helpful, and talented. He asked what songs we wanted to play, what songs we didn’t want to play, and asked a bunch of great questions that we didn’t even think of! He even helped me get my shoes on! 


He was great at communicating with us, our event coordinator and our photographer to make sure the timing of everything was done seamlessly. Most important part is that he knew exactly the right volume for the music while we were eating and during cocktail hour so that our guests could talk to each other. Just as importantly, DJ Lou knew the procedure and schedule of the wedding and was a huge help in guiding us through the formal dances, speeches, cake cutting, etc…


We made a ton of great decisions that lead to a great wedding, but DJ Lou was probably the best one! Thanks again, DJ Lou!!!”

My Observations

When I first talked to Nicolette & Matt we had a pretty awesome connection. They both had a bigger passion for 1980s to 2000s hits, but when Matt mentioned he liked metal I loved to bring this challenge to work that very request in where it could work. The logistics were definitely interesting at Windham Mountain. Like any ski area you can be presented sometimes with lack of power, extra windy conditions, or a challenge to access. Luckily for Windham Mountain there is great staff to work with and I was able to get to the mid-summit spot to setup early and test. While the wind was there, the views were gorgeous and it was certainly one hell of a day to get married.

Once we were back in the lodge we had a true mix of music, including a couple more-so metal hits to bring all the songs full circle to the persona of Nicolette & Matt during cocktail and dinner. And once dance kicked off we went full tilt, including lighted foamies to add some fun to it all, all ending into a foamie send off.
