Playlist – 22 Jun 2019 – Wedding

June 23, 2019 Greg Gioia No comments exist

Yesterday’s wedding was at a lovely residence in Boulder Creek, a small town that I had never heard of before being hired for this event. I didn’t have too much time to explore the area, but it certainly has appeal and I’m keen to go back and explore the greater Boulder Creek metro area on a day off.

The wedding was great fun, and I wish all days could go so smoothly. The event planner was on top of things, the photographers and videographers were very professional, and the guests were a fun, dancing bunch. And boy do they love the ’80s! I pretty much stuck exclusively to that decade when the time came to dance, with fantastic results.
