Reception Playlist : Lotos Club Wedding : Manhattan 2010

This night at the beautiful and stately Lotos Club in the West Village was ecstatic from start to finish. This was one of the common cases where bride and groom had completely different taste. The Bride was fond of Contemporary Pop, Classic Soul/R&B, and Hip-Hop, while the groom loved harder Rock ‘N’ Roll, 80s, and Indie. The challenge here was to take all of that and assemble it in a way that was fun for everyone. It was a success by all measures.
