Winter Wedding Gig Log - Lambertville Station

Winter weddings tend to be memorable.  Yesterday's celebration at the Lambertville Station Restaurant was no exception.  The weather was cold and blustery along the Delaware River in scenic Lambertville.  While we have performed at many private parties at the Inn at Lambertville Station, yesterday was our first time to perform at its sister property, The Station Restaurant located on Bridge Street.

The Lambertville Inn Restaurant contains many zones, including a wine cellar open to the public.  Anna and Sean took their vows in that wine cellar in front of a lit fireplace with some 40 close friends and family members looking on.  Our DJ Gregg Ambient provided a mix of New Age prelude and processional music as per the bride's request.  Anna entered the wine cellar to Enya's "Paint the Sky with Stars."  Later, the couple recessed to the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony."

Cocktail hour and dinner followed in a private dining room on the second floor.  The decor table centerpieces and decor were in holly red for Christmas, and a beautiful white wedding cake was adorned with Christmas flowers.  The DJ booth was located in a comfortable nook in the corner of the room that we lit tastefully with two LED par cans in red.

The following hours were spent enjoying a modern mix of international music (ranging from French to Brazilian) and lush lounge music. Sample artists included Thievery Corporation, Bebel Gilberto, Manu Chao and Joe Dassin.  Sean and Anna were kind enough to treat me to dinner, and the "Maple Mustard Salmon"was the most delicious that I've ever had! The staff at the restaurant was also exceptional - friendly and attentive.

Congratulations Anna and Sean!  Best wishes in your married life together and thank you for making me feel like a celebrity DJ (even though I am not!).
