Had a great time helping Dawn and Joseph celebrate their wedding at The Otesaga Resort in Cooperstown! I haven't been to Cooperstown since 1996... while I remember driving past The Otesaga then, I've never actually been inside. Beautiful location, right on the lake. This reception was unique in that we had two different set-ups: one for the cocktail hour outside on the veranda, then we had to move indoors for the reception.
First up, a couple of shots from the outdoor cocktail hour on the veranda. Since the idea was to simply provide background music, I used just one speaker. I also used my own table and plain black tablecloth. (Click any photo on this page to see a larger version.)
Now indoors, we're set-up on a table which was provided, clothed and skirted by the venue. Since the second speaker and my lights were already set-up in here earlier, it was a relatively quick transition from the outdoor cocktail hour to the indoor reception.
The dancing begins! You can see many more photos from Dawn and Joseph's wedding on the Peter Naughton Productions Facebook page.
If you're planning a wedding, this is a great example of how flexible I can be, in terms of using my own table or using one provided by your reception venue. The move from inside to outside also went very smoothly. Even though we had planned for about 15 minutes of "down time" while moving the equipment indoors, we had time to spare before the wedding party was ready for their big entrance.
