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.

  1. Most people over look this part. To have a successful wedding, the communication between the wedding couple and DJ is critical. Your DJ needs to get to know you and your guests. Or you might need help when it comes to selecting the right songs for your expected guests. It is important that your DJ is available to you whenever you need them, especially for those last minute changes. A part time DJ can't offer you that. Www.SocalBeats.Com
