Sole East Resort Wedding | Montauk, New York — Last weekends wedding was great… Maggie (the Bride) found us on Style Me Pretty and fell in love with one of our featured demos (Aubry & Nick). We were excited about filming the wedding as we had never been to “the Hampton’s” before. Having friends in both Brooklyn Heights as well as upstate New York (Patterson & Wallkill) we knew we could both film the wedding & have a great vacation, visiting our friends. If you’ve never been to the Hampton’s and are wondering what Sole’ East is all about, think ACE Hotel (Palm Springs, Ca) meets New York! The hotel itself is a “renovated” hotel turned “Hip” by new owner. Complete with white walls, funky art, DJ spinin’ pool side, restaurant named Backyard, “hipster” cliental & a bar… and you have Sole’ East Resort!
As for Maggie & Craig’s wedding, well we had a great time and it was apparent their guest did too!! Before the ceremony guest were greeted with (two person) guitarist group for a little pre-ceremony & wedding ceremony music. After the wedding had finished, guest were ushered to the “Backyard” for cocktails while Maggie & Craig were filmed & photographed.
Once cocktail hour had finished, we were ready to introduce the newlyweds. I announced the couple, thay walked in to the sound of their guest cheering them on as their (reggae band) Winston Irie played!! Their first dance was also taken care of and played by Winston Irie. If you like reggae, definitely look into them. They are a great group of guys.
…a few details
Winston Irie continued to play music throughout dinner and the first dance set leading up to the cake cutting. After the cake, the Groom (Craig) said… “Josh, you need to get this party jumpin”. And “jumpin” I got it!! The reggae music was awesome, but when I started playing it was apparent the guest were ready to “cut a rug”!! In an instant we had a party… being a jewish wedding, I started off with Hava Nagila. After getting the guest warmed up with that, I continued to spin classics and current popular hits. We had a BLAST and the dance floor… well you couldn’t see the dance floor for all the people on it!! And that’s just what the bride and groom wanted! We really enjoyed ourselves at Maggie & Craig’s wedding and will never forget the experience.
