Wedding at Montauk Club Brooklyn NY

Brooklyn Wedding DJ

The Montauk Club is located at 25 8th Avenue Brooklyn, NY and this was our first wedding of 2013. Cocktail hour took place on the second level and the Bride and Groom hired a live musician to cover cocktail hour. There was an incident involving one of the guests as they made the transition from the cocktail room to the lower level reception room via the steps, which delayed the start time by approximately 45 minutes. Because of this, we spoke with the coordinator at the Montauk Club and after some time, they agreed to extend the reception to 11:00 p.m. This worked out great, and we did not have to rush anything.

DJ Cabo served as the MC and helped with the DJing, as DJ Ant rocked the dance-floor for most of the night. Kieffer placed white lighting on the dark-wood columns around the room, and red up-lights on the walls of the left room as per the bride. White lights work best with dark-colored walls. Below the photos you can find the timeline and music selection. This was a very fun reception, and we through the floor was going to give as the guests jumped and the whole room started to shake.
