Need a unique venue??

If you (or your client) are looking for a unique and fantastic venue for a wedding or private party then check this out:

Nice covered patio, fireplace, 2 levels, great service and seating up to 450 people!

You should also check out her new venue: Barbarella Bar (In Silverlake)
We just did a wedding there this weekend and it was a great vibe!

My friend Anat is the owner and will take good care of you so tell her I sent you!

Another amazing Venue!!

We did an amazing wedding at a new venue that I wanted to share with you.

It was at the Church Estate in Malibu and it is really a unique space:

We played along with the funky band High Rize from De Bois Entertainment and coordination was handled by the always fabulous Michael Williams from Entertainment Design.

A bit of a walk for the guests to get from the ceremony area to the reception house up the hill but since the surroundings are beautiful I don't think anyone minded very much!

Julie & Aaron @ Twin Palms Pasadena

Julie and Aaron knew EXACTLY what they wanted for their
wedding which always makes my job easier.

Since both of them work in a artistic & creative field they were
passionate about music and wanted me to help them create a very
personal soundtrack for their day.

With selections by Aimee Mann, Rufas Wainwright, The Police, Lou Reed, Massive Attack, Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Leonard Cohen, Etta James, PJ Harvey, Frou Frou and Ben Harper we managed to create a very unique set of music for dinner.  My personal favorite was when Julie Danced with her Father to "Shaking the Tree" by Peter Gabriel which was not a traditional choice but it became a very powerful moment in the evening.

Don't get me wrong....we weren't so busy being cool that we couldn't find time to sneak in the Hora to please the Jewish folks in the crowd!  

The venue (Twin Palms Pasadena) provided a great deal of character and was the first time I've seen a circular Ceremony which worked out very well.

Sadly, Twin Palms recently closed after 16 years of business but you can
see how the space easily accommodated eclectic weddings.

The fantastic photos were courtesy of Pasadena Wedding Photographer Edewards Photography and he took the coolest DJ photo of yours truly!!!
