Wedding: Ke'haulani and Zachary at Hart's Hill Inn, Whitesboro, 10/12/19

When her mom first contacted me about this event, I learned Ke'haulani ("KK" for short) and Zachary have already married for about a year. But, living in Alaska, it was easier to have the two of them come "back home" to Central New York rather than having all the guests head northwest. So, we did an entire wedding celebration -- ceremony included -- at one of the Utica area's most popular venues, Hart's Hill Inn.

Wedding: Sarah and Andy at Daniele at Valley View, Utica, 9/28/19

Sarah and Andy's wedding reception brought me back to a venue I haven't seen in a few years: Daniele at Valley View in Utica. It's always nice to see what's new and different in the city where I got my start as a radio DJ years ago. There was one change in Utica which took me completely by surprise -- I'll explain in today's blog post. And as usual, some photos from the DJ booth and the happy couple's selections for the key moments of the night.

Wedding: Leigh and Kyle at Pumpelly House, Owego, 9/21/19

"Owego? Don't you mean Oswego, with an S? You know, the one only 45 minutes from Syracuse?" Nope! Not a typo -- Leigh and Kyle's wedding took me down to Owego. Yep, the one without an S, located a little ways west of Binghamton. But I didn't hesitate whatsoever when the familiar couple asked if I could DJ their wedding at this picturesque venue situated along the Susquehanna River. Read on for photos, song picks and the backstory!

Breathtaking! If I had to describe the Grand Ballroom on the 10th floor of the Marriott Syracuse Downtown in one word, that would be it. Even moreso with uplighting, and an awesome dance floor crowd!

Wedding: Bianca and Garrett in Hamilton, 7/20/19

Bianca and Garrett's wedding will definitely stick out in my memory! The ceremony was unique and we had a great dance floor crowd during the reception.

And as always, photos and the couple's music choices for those of you seeking inspiration for your own wedding planning!
