Wedding: October 17th

January 16, 2011

The best way to read this blog entry would be to turn on your radio and put on the following songs…#1 Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money in My Hand by The Primitive Radio Gods, #2 All I Want Is You by U2 and 3. Kiss Me I’m #!@’faced.

The Time…October 17th, 2010, The Place…Pocono’s…The People…Casey and Ari.  Lovely couple, radiantly and so obviously in love.  The weather was great, the staff were nice, the family was warm.  The leaves were just beginning to really get their colors in, love was in the air and Love Me Do Photography was in full effect taking marvelous photos (which you can see here).

The Ceremony took place outside, the came into Book of Love by Peter Gabriel and left in handcuffs (Ari is a Police office in NYC) to Beautiful day by U2. During cocktail hour, also outside, Qw35t served up a chill mix of indie tunes, singer songwriters and some 90’s trax too (think Alanis Morissette to Florence and the Machine to Radiohead to The Weepies to Keane and to Regina Spektor.

Dinner music ranged from Yael Naim, the Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Ray Charles, Adele, Bowie,  and Better than Ezra.  The Dance set went from Motown and Oldies, to 80’s and 90’s rock to Hip hop, and then the grand finale with everyone left in the room linked arm and arm singing at the top of their lungs in a circle to the Dropkick Murphy’s

John and I had a great time taking the drive up and spinning music to this wedding.  Good vibes all around…I will let Casey’s testimonial say the rest….

When Ari and I started planning our wedding, we knew we had to find a DJ that would not only venture off the beat path of normal “wedding music” but also accommodate our varying musical tastes (Ari loves all types of metal and classic rock, I’m a 90s alt-rock girl whose ventured into this new millennium of singer/songwriter pop) How do you make this work at a wedding?!? How do you please the 20-something friends, the 30-something cousins and the 50-something relatives and still make the Bride and Groom rock out just as much as their guests? I’m not sure, but these guys were able to do it, and had everyone at the wedding either dancing or singing along. Since we live in NYC but were getting married in PA, Adam Skyped with us, played music over the internet and put up with our endless lists of songs that we loved but didn’t know how to incorporate into a cohesive wedding playlist. Everyone knows that music can make or break a wedding. These guys made it, and we had multiple people tell us afterwards how awesome the music had been and how much fun they’d had. Thanks guys!
