Reception Playlist : Bridgewaters Wedding : Manhattan 2012

This was one of those nights where everything just came together. A gorgeous venue with sprawling views of the South Street Seaport, Brooklyn Bridge and the East River, combined with guests that couldn’t have been more enthusiastic… added up to a rousing, action-packed evening. The sound was diverse as you can see, but leaned a little towards an All-American & Rock ‘N’ Roll sound, interspersed with danceable hits from many decades and many different styles. -Carefully executed eclecticism that worked.
