Megan and Brycen couldn't have picked a nicer day to get married at such an amazing venue: it was my first time ever performing at Springside Inn, located along the western shore of Owasco Lake in Auburn. Inside this blog post, I've got photos, song selections and how I had to "MacGuyver" my way through part of the day.
The Springside Inn has a very well-appointed ballroom. Outside, behind the building, there's a wonderfully-landscaped area where you can have your ceremony.
For me, this wedding was a textbook example of why wedding DJs always need a backup plan. When the brand new laptop I intended to use for the reception music refused to power-up, I had to bring my secondary laptop inside from the ceremony to handle the reception, and for the first time ever, I had to use my "emergency tablet" to cover the ceremony music.
Nothing like some quick "MacGuyver-style" drama to liven things up! But in the end, all the right songs played at the right times, and I'm pretty sure neither the guests nor the newlyweds had any idea there was ever a problem. The backup plan worked! The only downside is that I didn't have a chance to get any ceremony shots, but professional photographer Heather Eposito and her team got plenty!
And for anyone wondering, turns out the issue with the new laptop was a minor glitch. Once I got home and had a chance to Google the problem, I found a quick and easy fix. Haven't had any issues with this new laptop since then, but if I ever do, I now know where the "magic reset" button is, and, in true MacGuyer fashion, my laptop case now includes a paper clip for the express purpose of pressing said button!
