It’s practically unheard of these days for a couple to meet without the help of a dating app. Nicole and Matt were introduced the old-fashioned way. “When I started at my company’s New York office, they sat me next to him,” Nicole says. “We would get coffee. Overtime, we began flirting a little, but nothing really happened.” Well, nothing really happened immediately.

We are excited to introduce Nicole, our Bride & Blossom Featured Bride for December. Nicole and Matt said ‘I Do’ on New Year’s Eve at Houston Hall. Here, she shares the first chapter of their love story.

If music be the food of love, play on. – William Shakespeare

Much rides on the shoulders of a wedding band. After all the formalities of the marriage ceremony are said and done, the wedding band is responsible for playing the soundtrack that accompanies the newlywed’s once-in-a-lifetime celebration. This is where Claudio Marquez and Mod Society come in. Through music, Mod Society stimulates the emotions, mood, and energy that create memories people remember long after the last song is played.

Shortly after moving to New York City in 2009 to pursue his career, Claudio watched as fellow musicians picked up gigs (and made money!) playing at weddings. Interested yet unsure how to break into this type of work, he decided to form his own band. In its early days, Mod Society was just a trio that played while guests sipped cocktails waiting for the reception to begin. At present, Mod Society is an ever-evolving music collective known for keeping wedding dance floors jam packed well into the night.
