I find that every couple I work with is able to create ways to really be themselves on their wedding day.  Connie and Dan spent lots of time making their reception at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh a fantastic representation of their lives together.


Their ceremony was held in the Art Room of the Children’s Museum and featured a reading from the Velveteen Rabbit, and a banjo performance of “Rainbow Connection”.  Connie and Dan also read their own vows, which were not only hilarious, but  very sweet and personal.  The customization continued as the venue was filled with unique pins made for each guest (and even the DJ!)

There was also a wonderful selection of music for me to use throughout the day.  When it was time to dance, guests of all ages were able to enjoy a mix of Motown, disco and 90′s hip hop.  Connie and Dan are creative, artistic, fun, and caring people, and they used their talents and passions to make their day absolutely perfect.

I believe every couple should be able to have their wedding exactly as they’ve always dreamed.  It’s important to make the details of your day a true reflection of who you are.  Kristen and Omar did an amazing job making their celebration at the Carnegie Museum a terrific blend of style, elegance, and fun.

Their reception began with cocktails in the Hall of Architecture, with live music by the MerryMakers, who then led the guests in a New Orleans Style parade to the Music Hall Foyer, where the newlyweds held their romantic first dance.  It was a great way to show everyone this was going to be a very special evening.

As dinner ended, the guests were able to enjoy a great mix of music chosen by the newlyweds.  Kristen and Omar worked hard on a playlist which included everything from Sinatra, The Drifters, Journey, and Neil Diamond, as well as newer music from Pitbull and Michael Jackson.  The music, as well as many other elements of the evening, worked perfectly as a way for this fun and stylish couple to share parts of themselves with their closest friends and family.

I tell everyone I work with that time has no meaning on a wedding day.  It’s impossible to know how much time you may need to have the day of your dreams.  Natalie and Denny’s planned their reception at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott in Moon Township to use all of their time perfectly to create an celebration of epic proportions.

After cocktails were served in the patio, guests were lead to the the Grand Ballroom at the Marriott, which was meticulously decorated to help create an atmosphere of elegance and style.

The newlyweds kept the evening simple, choosing to exclude some wedding traditions in favor having more time to dance and visit with their friends and family.  It was the perfect choice, since everyone from both families filled the dance floor to a fantastic mix of music from every genre.  The party raged on until 1AM, which was 2 hours after the bar closed!  Natalie and Denny planned their reception so they could treasure every second of the day.  They are now off to make more memories on their romantic Hawaiian honeymoon.

Wedding guest lists always contain a great variety of types of people.  Cousins, uncles, grandparents, nieces, nephews, high school and college friends, co-workers and more all gather together to help couples celebrate their special day.  Alaina and Alex did an amazing job when selecting music for their elegant reception at the Wendel Inn in Pittsburgh, PA.

The newlyweds took full advantage of the evening by including custom music genres for cocktails (Doo-Wop & Motown music) and for dinner (love songs from the 50 through today.  This allowed for a great variety of unique songs that appealed to their friends and family.

When it was time to dance, there was plenty of great music to get the party started.  Their guests enjoyed everything from oldies, country, top 40, and more.  I had a blast working with Alaina and Alex and loved how they used music to create a wedding soundtrack that would appeal to everyone.  They’re now preparing for a well deserved honeymoon in Punta Cana.

I tell every couple I meet with that I try to make it as “easy as possible to be as involved as you want to be in the planning process”.  Some couples find it fun to create entire song lists for cocktails, dinner and dancing.  Others choose to put their trust in me and my years of experience as being a wedding DJ.  Amie and Tienne gave me some general directions for music, but then put their faith in me for their elegant reception at the Longue Vue Country Club in Penn Hills, PA.

The Longue Vue Country Club was a fantastic choice for the newlyweds celebration.  Their guests were able to enjoy the perfect weather outside, but then had plenty of room to enjoy dinner and dancing.  Amie and Tienne chose to have me provide uplights for the main ballroom, which made the room even more beautiful.

When it was time to dance, no one was shy about getting the party started.  I was able to play a great mix of music to please their fun and diverse group of friends and family.  As the night ended, no one was quite ready for the party to end.  Amie and Tienne’s relaxed attitude and immensely sweet personalities helped give them a wonderfully perfect wedding day.  It was a pleasure for me to be a part of it all!
