[Wedding Playlist] • Smack Mellon, Brooklyn—September 2017

Smack Mellon, if you haven’t visited, is an art exhibition space & non-profit organization that exhibits exciting contemporary work, and often very ambitious and site-specific works. As a wedding venue, it’s one of my favorites in Brooklyn. Its DUMBO location is always bustling on the weekends, and the industrial-chic, textured look of the space gives a great contrast to softer wedding decor.

For this September 2017 Smack Mellon wedding, the couple and I agreed to explore a lot of Indie Electronic material, with dashes of fun, Golden Age Hip-Hop, & lively Pop of all eras. The energy simply worked! I was very pleased. Closing with LCD Soundsystem was the perfect way to end this distinctive event, in a distinctive space.
