November 30, 2013 had us celebrating with Kris and Kelly,family and friends at Belhurst Castles, Castle Ballroom.
We provided master of ceremony, DJ and up lighting services. In addition to these services we also offered a video services.
Kelly’s father Richard had a really great idea for grand entrances and introductions and he wanted to surprise Kelly. Richard reached out to all members of the wedding party and each recorded a personal message/introduction for Kris and Kelly. I then took each video file and edited the video adding music and custom graphics including their names and motion to provide a very produced finished product. This was all playback during their introduction on our big video screen. It was a blast and the guests were truly entertained.
The main video piece that brought it altogether is the first video below recorded by WBNG 12 Action News Reporter Howard Manges. Richard has a contact at the station and Howard was a great sport and did an awesome job recording the intro.
During the salad course we used the large video screen and projector to play a special slideshow that Kris’s mother Janice created and provided to us in advance.
Dancing was over-the-top and Kris and Kelly entertain their guests with a choreographed Wedding Party dance to end their formal dances before dinner.
It’s always fun to be a part of an event where so much attention and priority is placed on the music and entertainment and Kris and Kelly’s reception fit that description.
We also had the pleasure of working for the second time this year with Photographer Anna Simonak.

AN EMERSON PARK WEDDING | NJ WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, TOM HARMON PHOTOGRAPHY

EMERSON PARK PAVILION. AUBURN, NY.

To kick off wedding season this year, I’ve asked my good friend and second shooter Kegan to get married to the love of his life and have an awesome party just so I can take some pictures. Well he came through for me because it was an incredible day filled with a lot of fun. Luckily the rain held off just long enough to let Sam and Kegan tie the knot. The ceremony was short and sweet and the venue was ready for a crazy time. Fingerlakes Entertainment provided some awesome lighting and even better tunes and everybody had a blast. I even dragged Sam and Kegan out into the rain to get one of those epic backlit rain shots everybody loves. It was so much fun and I couldn’t be happier for Sam and Kegan.

Ryan and Victoria’s Watkins Glen Wedding was amazing!  Their reception was at the Harbor Hotel and as you can see it is a beautiful location.  Ryan and Victoria were so much fun to plan and celebrate with.  My only wish for them is that we had more time to party!

Their grand entrances were so much fun.  Each couple had their own song and Ryan and Victoria each entered from a different entrance in the room and lip-synced a version of Bruno Mars-Marry You complete with props.  It was crazy!  Congrats you two!
