Wedding: Boni and Michelle at Hamilton College, Clinton, 7/5/14

Well, it happened last year and it happened again this year -- I got to a point in the wedding season where things just so busy, my blogging had to take a back seat for awhile.  When time gets crunched, preparing for upcoming events takes priority over blogging previous events, but I haven't forgotten!  Finally, I have some time to catch up on at least a little bit of blogging.   I'm pleased to share photos and memories from Boni and Michelle's wedding in Clinton, just outside of Utica.

When you get married on the weekend attached to the summer's biggest holiday, it's practically a given: you've gotta do it outside!  Boni and Michelle chose a unique venue, the Rogers Estate on the campus of Hamilton College.  Although the building is used for student housing during the school year, the building is vacant during the summer.  The catering staff took over the kitchen.  Other rooms on the first floor were used for the buffet line, the dessert stations, the bar, and some general seating.

Outside, the dinner tables were set up in an "L" formation, wrapping around the building.  Because several tables had to be set-up on what would later become the dance floor, it was a tight squeeze for me and my equipment at first, but I was very pleased with how I was able to work within the space I had!

For the ceremony, the officiant wore a wireless lapel mic, which was also able to pick up the voices of the brides, allowing all assembled to hear every word.  After dinner ended and the crew broke-down the tables, I was able to rearrange my set-up to better address the crowd.

Here's which songs the brides chose for their key moments of the evening:

  • Ceremony Gathering: Christina Perri / A Thousand Years.
  • Ceremony Bridal Entrance: Lesley Garrett / Lakme - Dome Epais (the Flower Duet).
  • Ceremony Recessional: Phillip Phillips / Home.
  • First Dance: Joss Stone & Common / Tell Me What We’re Gonna Do.
  • Second Line (Louisiana tradition): Hey Pocky A-Way / The Meters; Iko Iko / Dr. John.

Here are some photos from the day!
