Peter was great to work with. His play list kept our guests on the dance floor until the very end of the night!

Wedding: Lisa and Mike at Lincklaen House, Cazenovia, 3/16/24

The 2024 wedding season is underway! Lisa and Mike's wedding had the distinction of serving as my "season 13 premiere," at the venue where I've done more weddings than any other: the historic Lincklaen House in Cazenovia. Keep reading for song choices, photos and more.

If my count is right, this is my 147th wedding overall, and my 8th at the Lincklaen. My previous wedding here was 9 months ago, but it may as well have been just 9 days ago -- the staff there is so great to work with, I know I can just walk in and start setting up, no issues, no problems.

If you happen to check out my other Lincklaen House weddings, you'll notice that this venue is unique in that there are several different ways to stage a wedding. The ceremony could be outdoors in their courtyard, or indoors in the dining room. For Mike and Lisa's wedding, the ceremony was indoors, in the dining room. During cocktail hour, everyone is moved out to the lobby so the dining room can be "flipped" for dinner.

Lisa and Mike's Key Song Choices

Ceremony

  • For the ceremony, Lisa and Mike provided their own custom piano tracks for various entrances as well as the recessional.

Reception

  • Wedding Party intros: Multiple songs
  • Newlyweds' intros: Alkaline Trio / This Addiction
  • First Dance: Sum 41 / With Me
  • Groom / Mother Dance: Queen / Under Pressure
  • Cake Cutting: New Found Glory / Hold My Hand
  • Last Dance of the Night: Taking Back Sunday / The One

Like some of my previous Lincklaen House weddings, I set-up two separate sound systems -- one in the dining room and one in the lobby, which doubles as the dance floor. But during Mike and Lisa's wedding, I tested out the feasibility of using a single sound system (in the lobby) to feed my new wireless speakers in the dining room. It worked! This will reduce my "floor footprint" at future weddings here.

Lincklaen House Wedding DJ Photo Highlights

Here are some additional photos I snapped throughout the evening... and for any new readers, I'll start the 2024 wedding season with my occasional reminder that I'm not a professional photographer, just trying to show what my setups looked like and how much fun everyone had.

Before we wrap up this one, I want to give my thanks to groom Mike, who is a professional photographer and managed to sneak a few photos of me in action during the evening!

Thanks again to Mike and Lisa for choosing me as your DJ! A great wedding to kick off the 2024 season and I'm looking forward to all the other wonderful couples who've entrusted me with their wedding reception entertainment throughout the rest of the year!
