(Utica, NY) Jessica and Michael are two very special people who just couldn’t wait until they were married to each other. It was obvious in the way they smiled at each other, talked to each other and looked at each other. Promo Productions Entertainment and DJ Kenny The Promo Guy were thrilled to be part of their celebration for their Radisson wedding reception.

Jessica, who reminded me that I used to DJ her school dances in Holland Patent, and Michael grew up in Central New York before moving out of the area. We were able to plan their wedding online and meet in Albany to discuss all the details of their special day.

The wedding day started with their ceremony at The First Pres­by­ter­ian Church in Utica. Following the ceremony the bride and groom (along with their wedding party) took photos in Downtown Utica with their photographer Thomas Sblendorio from Tom Studios (

Cocktail hour was held in the Garden Grill of the Radisson Hotel.  After enjoying a variety of “Utica foods” including greens, tomato pie and halfmoon cookies, guests entered the Ballroom (lit in our gold uplighting) to take their seats and await the formal introductions.

The wedding party entered the reception to Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us” followed by Michael & Jessica’s Grand Entrance to Best Day of My Life by the American Authors.   The bride and groom shared their First Dance to Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran.

Following the parents dances, two toasts and a warm blessing by Jessica’s father David, it was time for guests to enjoy the Radisson’s delicious buffet.   Once dinner was complete we dimmed the lights and the dance party was underway.

We started this dance party differently than many others… as the adults went to enjoy cake and pastries we played a few newer songs that catered to the kids who were at the reception. They packed the dance floor and helped us transition to party mode.  Jessica and Michael provided us with a great list of songs they wanted played during the night and their guests did too.
