Below are some of the photos taken during April and Tanner’s reception this past summer. An outdoor wedding at a private lake with over one hundred guests.

It was awkward at best, and infuriating at worst.
This past weekend was the hardest wedding I’ve ever set up for. The venue was outside at a beautiful private lake with cabins and docks and a small pavilion. It was a fantastic venue. The only unfortunate thing was that the terrain prevented me from parking close and required me to haul all of the gear by hand. 2 17” speakers, 2 DJ Tables, 2 Speaker Stands, A box of equipment that included over 200 feet of speaker cables, extension cords, microphones, wireless mics, mixers and more. I stopped by on Friday before rehearsal and did a mock set up.
I don’t usually do this, but because of circumstances including using some new equipment and because I was providing the music and live audio for the ceremony, I wanted to make sure all was okay. I arrived at about 5pm on a very hot June day in Georgia. After bringing my equipment down, setting up, and then leaving for my 8pm trivia show I was fairly confident. On Saturday I arrived at 10am, to reset. The wedding wasn’t until 5pm that night. So after setting up again, and covering everything in case it rained, I left at noon.
All total I spent 4 hours just on the setup to make sure everything worked perfectly for the bride and groom. Typically, I don’t need that much time. But I wanted to make sure everything was flawless…and it was.
The picture is what I looked like following the Friday set up.
