The rolling hills between Ithaca and Elmira... fall colors in the distance... a perfect backdrop for an amazing outdoor ceremony and indoor reception for Marjorie and Gretchen! Rain earlier in the day almost forced everything indoors, but the ceremony's late-afternoon start provided perfect timing for the sunshine to dry everything out enough to stay with the original plans.
Everything took place at Gretchen's parents' house. For the outdoor ceremony on the front lawn, they provided an extension cord to meet me halfway between my DJ table and the house. I positioned myself as far behind the seating area as possible. A wireless mic was on-standby in case it got too windy, but we didn't need it.
As soon as the ceremony recessional song was over, my wife and I quickly moved everything to the barn where the reception took place. The dance lighting and the rest of the equipment had been set-up previously, so we were able to have music going for cocktail hour in just a little over 10 minutes.

Unfortunately, most of my photos didn't come out so well, but Calypso Rae Photography's cameras did a much better job. (That's why I'm a DJ, and not a photographer!!) Check out more photos from Marjorie and Gretchen's wedding and reception on her website!
