Modernity and History
We’ve been to a lot of venues in Greenville. We’ve even been to a lot of venues in South Carolina. But after we went to The Huguenot Mill & Loft we knew we had to write our next blog about it. And due to all our traveling, you can believe us when we say: this one was worth writing about. Greenville has quickly become one of our favorite cities in SC. That Upstate aesthetic really can’t be beat. And, truth be told, we have kind of a soft spot for Greenville in general.
When we first showed up at Huguenot Loft, we knew immediately it was gonna be a good night. The way everything came together was absolutely a sight to see.
With origins going back to 1882, The Huguenot Mill is a venue with history. And, much like weddings, often tradition combined with more modern flavor makes for the best experiences. And this mill was definitely a combination of modern and historic. With wooden trusses and exposed brick, this is a venue with aesthetic.
It’s hard to overstate just how many different venues and receptions we’ve seen and hosted. As traveling wedding DJs, it’s our job to create custom celebrations all over the Carolinas. There was something unique about this one though.
With views looking out over the river, this was a uniquely Greenville venue. We learned that this part of South Carolina has a long history of mills and textile production. So we thought it was very cool that this venue was able to incorporate some of that history. Upon walking in you can feel the combination of modern and historic with the elegant modern hardwood floor/historic brick supports combo.
The more I worked with them in planning our wedding, the more I enjoyed them! They were responsive, flexible, and helpful at every turn, even as our plans evolved… Our DJ, Freddie, was assigned based on our music preferences, and was wonderful from start to finish. He picked great music that clearly aligned with our preferences and was great at moving our guests throughout the evening! Would recommend them to anyone.
A Truly Greenville Wedding
There are many factors that go into creating a unique wedding. And in our travels through South Carolina, we’ve seen too many great weddings to count. But what really makes any Greenville wedding great is the vibe.
And as professional wedding DJs, cultivating the vibe is our specialty.
While we always appreciate a good venue aesthetic, our true love is the music. We are DJs, after all. And we’ve seen time and time again that the music selections are what really set weddings apart. When a couple chooses music that’s spot-on, it’s something everyone in attendance can feel.
Sarah and Kevin definitely had some awesome tastes.
We had a dance party featuring everything from The BeeGees to Maroon 5 and A Truly Greenville Wedding. And as DJs, that’s always something we appreciate.
Our skillset is in music in general. Occasionally folks ask us if we can do a particular kind of music or genre, and our answer is always a resounding yes. If it’s the music our couple wants, then it’s the music they’ll get.
And it’s always the best when that translates onto the dance floor. What makes for the best reception throw-downs is a wide variety of music. That’s also what keeps the dancing crowd on their toes.
We could go on and on about Sarah and Kevin and their celebration at Huguenot Loft in Greenville, SC. But for now we’ll just stick to saying that we had an amazing time. We’re always grateful to be able to be a part of anyone’s big day. That’s why we got into this business. Being able to craft custom Upstate SC celebrations is something we’ll never get tired of. We can’t wait to come back to Greenville!

And as a final note, we just need to say… We absolutely love what we do. Being a part of the unique and personal ways couples celebrate is why we do it. And we loved being a part of this celebration. It’s always awesome to see how couples choose to celebrate.
In conclusion, we’ve learned that being a wedding DJ isn’t just about playing the music. So we take our role seriously. Facilitating such a big day is a serious job! That’s why we always give every wedding or event our all.
