Wedding: Danielle and Brandon at Timber Banks, Baldwinsville, 5/20/17

Danielle and Brandon couldn’t have asked for a better day for an outdoor wedding ceremony!  Clear skies and comfortable temperatures made for a great day at Timber Banks Golf Course in Baldwinsville.  For the ceremony, everyone moved inside to the “Wedding and Event Center.”  As always, I’ve got photos, song selections and some “DJ perspective” on the event.

Wedding: Meghan and Matt at Wolf Oak Acres, Oneida, 10/15/16

A strong finish for my 2016 wedding season!   Meghan and Matt invited friends and family to celebrate at the scenic Wolf Oak Acres in Oneida, my second wedding there this year.  Although rainy weather altered the plans for my previous wedding here (in August), Meghan and Matt enjoyed a picture-perfect day.  Two sound systems seamlessly covered three locations — I’ll explain how and share some of my favorite photos inside this blog post.

Wedding: Theresa and Kyle at Daniele’s in New Hartford, 10/8/16

Wedding: Theresa and Kyle at Daniele’s in New Hartford, 10/8/16

Theresa and Kyle’s wedding took me to Daniele’s Banquet Specialists on Seneca Turnpike in New Hartford.  It’s just a few miles outside of Utica, right up the hill from “Jay-K Corners.”  Theresa and Kyle live about halfway between Utica and Albany, so we didn’t have a chance to meet until the reception.  But that’s nothing new for me — I’ve worked with many out-of-town couples before.  Detailed communication via email and telephone is key to help everything go according to plan!
