The Thalassa is a hip and elegant three-story space located in the trendy Tribeca section of New York City. Nestled among industrial brick buildings and cobblestone streets, the venue’s versatility provided the perfect backdrop for Rebecca and Neil’s nuptials.

Create Excitement had the honor of providing the entertainment for the couple’s ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Because The Thalassa is a multi-floor venue, we were able to provide multiple musical set-ups at the same time.

The festivities kicked off around 6:30 pm for a cocktail hour in the loft. The bride and groom felt that an old school, bluesy vibe would be ideal for this space and requested songs such as Walkin’ After Midnight and Fly Me to the Moon to fit in with this vibe.

At 7:30 the couple held their pop-up ceremony which was simple, fast, and the perfect exchange of “I Dos” for this hip duo. Following the vows was a series of speeches featuring Neil’s father, Rebecca’s sister, the couples friend, and last but certainly not least, the bride’s nieces rapping to Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby.
