Lauren & Nick – A Michigan Fall Wedding

A beautiful brisk fall day set the backdrop for Lauren & Nicks November 15, 2014 wedding at the beautiful Gem Theatre in Detroit, Michigan.

Lauren & Nick are not your typical bride and groom, they had unique musical tastes that matched their personalities which is also what ignited their relationship.

They met online, but not how you think; not one of  those often advertised soulmate sites, it was a music website.  Their playlists sparked interest in each others tastes, opened communication, and the rest is history.

The biggest challenge and their biggest worry was in fact their music and how it would all fit together, would their guests be happy?  Will they dance to our music?

Not being very big on traditional pop/top 40 music, they wanted very little of it played.  Just a few of Lauren & Nick’s awesome must-plays:

  • Lights & Music – Cut Copy
  • Night by Night – Chromeo
  • Ready for the Floor – Hot Chip
  • What about us – Handsome Furs

Music Box DJs Fletcher Price & Kyle Dubie were up for the challenge; they kept the dance floor going until the end when guests had to literally be dragged off the dance floor to go to the bowling after party next door!

From the moment the guests arrived for the ceremony they entered the theater with prelude music by bands such as New Order, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and others; those bands hand selected by Lauren & Nick.

Cocktail and dinner music continued to represent their personalities with bands ranging from the Stone Roses to Spoon.  When it came time to fill the floor and celebrate their communion it came down to the skills of the DJs to accomplish that task while keeping Lauren & Nick’s personalities involved, and that they did.


The proof is in the pudding, so to say, check out the beautiful wedding film highlight below from our very own talented MBP Films
