I have a feeling they are going to get a lot of resistance to this policy. Maybe it will change.

It looks like your wedding was ideal with the fun music keeping everyone going. I'd love that for my wedding, and there's no way to really know what you're gonna get.
Also, I'm curious about what type of music he played: was it house/dance or more pop, or was it songs everyone knows from college... what about the music kept everyone dancing?
Oh, man. I hope my wedding turns out as great as yours. Sure, it's about celebrating the marriage, but when you have all your friends and family flying down, it's also about a good time.

Unfortunately I can't remember the DJ's name! I can try asking Donaji but she might be reluctant to share if you're not having the wedding at Al Cielo? I still owe her some photos though .
He played a wide variety. During the cocktail hour and during the jazz band's breaks, it was sort of lounge music the way you would have at an outdoor hipster lounge bar type place. Like when world music is remixed into electronica/lounge music? You know that trend? Like KCRWish.
Then during dancing he played a mix from poppy songs (Madonna) to hip hop to a little dance to funk, to old songs everyone knows - but I think what kept it going was that he'd play the beginning and best parts of the songs, and then fade it into some other song that worked well in the crossover, so that you never get sick of a song. And perhaps he could figure out if the song wasn't going over well? And there were definitely a lot of songs people knew, but probably the cheesiest one was the Madonna one (Like a Virgin), and he didn't really play the annoying cheesy songs like We are Family or Celebration, thankfully (I think I made a do not play list that he adhered to). Also, my friends and famly love to dance, which certainly helped.
He also played the tracks on cds I gave him (for Jewish and Greek circle dancing, and for my first dance song).

Anyway, you know what else is weird... I was going through your posts and realized that we got our dresses at the same shop. Mine is also a Cymbeline, though a different style, and your engagement ring is based on the same antique design as mine. I've never seen anyone else with it yet. Al Cielo was one of my three choices for venue too; it was between that, Esencia, and Ceiba del Mar. I chose Ceiba. So, given those similarities, I'm pretty sure I'd agree with your taste for vendors!
I kinda doubted that Al Cielo would share that info. I'm gonna send an email to Acoustic Project and see if I can get any info from them. My hotel gave me a dj recommendation, but I am just super worried that their dj has more of a norteno/ranchero inclination. I just mentioned all ths to my fiancee, including that you were from Venice, and he said, "well, I'd be inclined to trust the people from Venice..." So, thanks for posting. You really have no idea what peace of mind it brings me to see that it all worked out for someone with similar expectations.

I'm just east of Lincoln on Indiana - not quite as hip an area, but you can't be too picky in SoCal - I figure as long as I'm near enough to run to/on the beach, I should be happy. Well, I guess you know what I look like from the photos - if you see me in the neighborhood, be sure to say hi (I'm probably easy to pick out when w/my hubby who is ridiculously tall).

So, I'll have to keep an eye out for you. Maybe I'll run into you at the new Whole foods Take care!
