In addition to the wedding planning articles located here on Your Unique Hudson Valley Wedding, I, DJ Bri Swatek from Spinning with Style invite you to read the latest ideas about how to share your unique style with your friends and family on your wedding day on these great Hudson Valley wedding blogs:

The Best Wedding Reception Ever!™

If you’re looking for a good wedding planning book to read, head over to Amazon.Com to order a copy of Peter Merry’s book, The Best Wedding Reception Ever!™  If you want to be both creative and realistic in planning your wedding, I highly recommend you read this guide to planning your entire event, from setting a date to hiring vendors, to the big day itself.  Peter Merry’s example weddings and lists of pros and cons provide brides and grooms with a number of realistic examples of how their planning might turn out given different choices you might make. His years of experience as a “Wedding Entertainment Director” allow him to address a variety of options, such as the daytime wedding vs. the evening wedding, scheduling a wedding at different times throughout the year, when and how to schedule photos, and what type of entertainment to hire.  Peter also maintains a wedding planning blog, Merry Weddings.

Stephanie and Bradley’s Unique Theme Wedding at Dutchess Manor Courtesy of Allan E. Levine Photography

Using a running theme throughout your wedding day is one great way to share your unique style as a couple with your friends and family.

Earlier this summer I had the honor of providing DJ, MC, and uplighting services for Stephanie and Bradley’s unique New Orleans / Literati themed wedding at Dutchess Manor.

From the colors (Mardi Gras green, purple, and gold) to the centerpieces (featuring their favorite books) and from the favors (masks and custom Playbills) to the music (including a brass band style entrance), Stephanie and Bradley brought two of their shared passions — a love of literature and the city of New Orleans — into the heart of their wedding day.  Thanks to my good friends Allan and Vicki at Allan E. Levine Photography for capturing all the memories and to the staff at Dutchess Manor for providing the fantastic food, service, and setting.

Congratulations,
