An Intimate Wedding In Saugerties NY

Diamond Mills Hotel, The Hudson Valley, Saugerties NY

The Review

“DJ Lou is absolutely the best!! He is super accommodating, always open for a discussion, and wants to help make your occasion perfect with the music he provides! He really goes out of his way to make sure everything is ready for your special day! Our wedding guests thought he was amazing just like we did! I highly recommend DJ for any occasion!!”

My Observations

A little bit of rock, a little bit of country, a little bit of metal, a little bit of 90s; Taylor & Anthony were laid back and open to just talk and I was here to listen and absorb. All of this fun was taking place at one of my favorite places, Diamond Mills Hotel in Saugerties NY, a true gem of the Hudson Valley.

One unique characteristic of Diamond Mills is it’s glorious waterfall outside which is equally matched in it’s beauty as it is the sound of the raging waters. Thanks to Diamond Mills I’ve invested in my ceremony rig to be able to capture great detail despite the elements and tower over the noise of the waterfalls.

Cocktail then splits between the outdoors patio and the indoor cocktail and bar area which I can easily fill both with the sounds that they want. In this case an alternative, soft, country kind of mix that continued on for dinner. Then dance this intimate crew rocked to a mix of almost everything on the board.

I love these more intimate weddings because you definitely get to be familiar with all the guests and seemingly create a real bond for the evening.
