Every wedding contains a million details, all of which will come together to create a day which is completely your own. Shannon and Cole worked tirelessly on their amazing wedding and reception held at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. With the help of family and friends, their celebration was romantic, unique, and completely awesome.One important detail I was able to help out with was the newlyweds’ customized playlist. They avoided overplayed and cheesy songs,h and instead used great songs to create a great vibe. Their song choices included great indie singer-songwriters, and later in the night some amazing 90′s tunes. Dancing started off with a hora which filled up the big dance floor quickly as the newlyweds were hoisted in the air!
Planning a wedding is never simple. Thousands of details need to be prepared, considered, and chosen in order to have your big day come together as you please. Alys and Tim’s reception at the Phipps Conservatory Ballroom was the perfect example of excellent planning and wonderful choices that made for a fantastic and elegant reception.
The ballroom at Phipp’s was beautifully decorated for the newlyweds and their guests. Alys and Tim selected a great selection of music for the evening which included Rat Pack standards, swing, oldies, 80′s, and Top 40 music, all of which suited their friends and family.
To cap off their celebration, they chose the perfect songs (Livin’ On A Prayer & Don’t Stop Believin’), which brought their evening to an epic ending. They made many wise choices and prioritized their efforts for the wedding day, which made the entire day absolutely perfect. They’re now headed off to Antigua for a well deserved romantic and relaxing honeymoon.
Most people look forward to seeing their friends and family get a little silly and crazy during their wedding reception. One way to set the mood for a great celebration is to be willing to get a little wild yourself. Stephanie and Jean-Pierre certainly understood how to create the perfect mood for their incredible party at the Sheraton Station Square.
The newlyweds choreographed their first dance as husband and wife to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, which made it clear that this was going to be a wedding reception like no other. They also included some unique music for the entire evening, including a dinner music playlist consisting of The Beatles. The Sheraton was the perfect venue for their guests to enjoy singing, dancing and the incredible view of Pittsburgh.
Stephanie and Jean-Pierre are an incredibly fun couple who chose to include lots of their own personalities on their special day. This really helped all of their guests to relax and get a little crazy too. Everyone had a fantastic time dancing to a great selection of music and no one wanted the party to end. Many guests stayed around long after the music ended to wish the newlyweds well before they left for their honeymoon in Panama.
Not all of the couples I work with provide playlist suggestions for their reception, but those who do help provide great insight into what songs will set the perfect tone for their big day. Krystina and Greg took the time to create an amazing group of songs for me to choose from while playing their reception at the Doubletree Hotel in Moon Township, PA.
The ballroom at the Doubletree looked amazing decked out in their royal blue wedding color. I was excited when they asked me to provide uplighting and a monogram to make the room look even better. A friend also provided a Cinderella’s Castle card box that was truly stunning.
It became clear to me throughout the evening that Krystina and Greg really knew their friends and family well. Their guests continually came and requested songs that were already part of their playlist suggestions. The results were amazing as everyone danced, sang, hugged, and celebrated with the newlyweds. The couple now gets to enjoy their honeymoon in the Riviera Maya, knowing their day had been a smashing success.
Most people would agree that it’s important to have a variety of music throughout the wedding day. Jessica and Erik did a fantastic job of including many different styles and genres of music for their beautiful ceremony and reception at Bella Sera in Canonsburg, PA.
I was fortunate enough to DJ Erik’s sister’s wedding a few years back, and was thrilled that they chose me to be a part of this celebration. As luck would have it, we discovered I had also been the DJ for their ceremony officiant over 15 years ago!
Jessica and Erik’s unique playlist included beautiful piano instrumentals, classic rock, alternative, singer-songwriters, Top 40, disco, and even a few Disney tunes sprinkled in throughout the evening. It was the perfect mix for their friends and family. Jessica and Erik are now off to Walt Disney World for their honeymoon.
