Wedding: Irene and Robert at Tailwater Lodge, Altmar, 12/29/18

Wedding: Irene and Robert at Tailwater Lodge, Altmar, 12/29/18

My final wedding of the 2018 wedding season holds the all-time record for “latest wedding in the year.”  After all, there isn’t much room to go later than December 29!  The season wrapped up at a familiar venue — Tailwater Lodge in Altmar — with a familar couple.  Bride Irene is the sister of Martin, whose wedding I DJ’ed in 2016 (where Irene was a bridesmaid).  It’s always great to see some of the same guests again and this crowd had a great time!  Check out the photos and more in this blog post.

Wedding: Sharon and Stephen at Traditions at the Links, East Syracuse, 11/17/18

My wedding season hasn’t reached into November since 2014, but this year I had two! (And they weren’t the last ones, either!)  Sharon and Stephen’s wedding brought me back to a familiar venue, Traditions at the Links in East Syracuse.  This was a fun wedding with an amazing crowd… check out the photos and more in this blog post.

Wedding: Bethany and Brian at Highland Forest’s Skyline Lodge, Fabius, 11/3/18

Wedding: Bethany and Brian at Highland Forest’s Skyline Lodge, Fabius, 11/3/18

Throughout my wedding DJ career, I’ve kept a list of “unofficial records” in my head.  Earliest and latest wedding dates. (January 14th and December 28th, if you’re wondering.) Longest drive (east of Binghamton). Things like that.  Bethany and Brian’s wedding at Highland Forest park’s Skyline Lodge probably sets the record for earliest wedding to date.  I arrived shortly after 9:00am to set-up for a 10:30 start.  The setup was a little different than my previous weddings here — find out why in today’s blog post!

Wedding: Megan and Jimmy at Beardslee Castle, Little Falls, 10/20/18

Wedding: Megan and Jimmy at Beardslee Castle, Little Falls, 10/20/18

Growing up in Rome and starting my broadcasting career in Utica, I’ve heard about Beardslee Castle many times, but never had a chance to visit.  That changed this year, thanks to Megan and Jimmy booking me as their wedding DJ!  They picked a beautiful fall day to get married on the castle’s front lawn, followed by dinner and dancing inside.

Wedding: Emily and Nicholas at Tailwater Lodge, Altmar, 10/13/18

Wedding: Emily and Nicholas at Tailwater Lodge, Altmar, 10/13/18

One venue getting a lot of buzz recently is the Tailwater Lodge in Altmar, which opened just a few years ago. Located along the Salmon River, it’s a favorite spot for anglers, but it’s also a well-appointed venue for weddings.  Emily and Nicholas’ wedding was not only my first wedding ever at this venue, but my first of two booked for 2018.  Check out photos and more in today’s blog post!

Wedding: Rachel and Kevin in Litchfield, 9/8/18

Wedding: Rachel and Kevin in Litchfield, 9/8/18

Every wedding is unique in some way, but Rachel and Kevin’s wedding was especially unique. Their ceremony and reception took place atop a hill overlooking her parents’ farm. Hosting a wedding at a private residence is a massive undertaking, but Rachel and Kevin made it look so easy! I’ve got details, photos, song selections and more in today’s blog post. [ More » ]

Wedding: Christina and Philipp at Benn Conger Inn, Groton, 8/25/18

Wedding: Christina and Philipp at Benn Conger Inn, Groton, 8/25/18

Nearly a decade into the wedding DJ business… and I’m still discovering new venues across the region!  Christina and Philipp’s wedding reception took me down through Cortland and west to Groton, home of The Benn Conger Inn.  And what an awesome crowd!  The party went strong from 4:30 to midnight and lots of people stuck around for the afterparty.  Check out this blog post for details, photos and song ideas!

Wedding: Tiffany and Matt at Wolf Oak Acres, Oneida, 8/18/18

Wedding: Tiffany and Matt at Wolf Oak Acres, Oneida, 8/18/18

While I haven’t actually sat down to count it, Wolf Oak Acres is probably the venue where I’ve DJ’ed the most weddings so far.  If not, it’s gotta be pretty close to the top!  Tiffany and Matt were my second out of three 2018 weddings at this Madison County venue, just a few miles outside of Oneida. Check out the uplighting and song selections in today’s blog post. [ More » ]
