Alyssa and Kyle (Carnegie Museum Wedding & Reception)

Anyone who knows me is aware of my love of all things Disney, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard that Alyssa and Kyle’s wedding day was going to be themed after the movie “UP!”.  They did a fabulous job incorporating adorable pieces and music throughout the Carnegie Museum in Oakland, where both their ceremony and reception were held.

Guests gathered to witness their nuptials in the gorgeous Hall of Sculptures before making their way to the Music Hall Foyer.  At the reception was were Alyssa and Kyle’s “UP!” wedding really got to be shine.

Clearly, all of these fun details, would stir up everyone to want to dance, party and celebrate!

Alyssa and Kyle’s personalities came through at every part of their day.  From the music they chose to the constant laughter, and finally to the wonderful party of singing and dancing that could have lasted all night long, the newlyweds held a wedding that was a reflection of themselves and their love for each other.  There could not have been a more suitable way for the couple to begin the next chapter in their Adventure Book.

Casey and Dan (The Pennsylvanian Reception)

I’m always honored when I’m chosen to DJ a wedding, but there is something extra special when I am given the opportunity to be a part of a celebration for members of our military.  Not only do I feel it’s important to honor these wonderful men and women, but I also find that no one knows how to party and have fun more than those who have dedicated their lives to serving our country.  Casey and Dan had their beautiful and elegant military wedding at the Pennsylvanian in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh.

The Pennsylvanian is a gorgeous and stunning venue, made even more elegant with their newly added drapery and the fantastic wedding decorations.

At the end of their reception, Casey and Dan made a comment to me about how the day was full of “perfect moments”.  I couldn’t agree more since they had so many of their friends and family surround them as they took the time to talk, relax, enjoy cookies, drink, dance, and sing.  Everyone seemed to have the best time as they got crazy to some fun music from yesterday and today.  They all gathered around for one last song before the couple’s sparkler exit.  Casey and Dan gave everyone a fantastic celebration and in turn, their guests gave them all the love and attention they deserved.  The newlyweds are headed off to Taiwan for a well-earned romantic honeymoon.

Christie and Jacob (Olde Stonewall Golf Club Reception)

There are times for everyone when things get tough.  Work, stress, family, health – all these things can make us forget how blessed we are and how great life is.  While the wedding is clearly very special for the bride and groom, it’s also a gift to everyone who attends because it gives them a genuine reason to celebrate.  In this day and age, people NEED to celebrate.  Christie and Jacob had an amazing and beautiful wedding at the Olde Stonewall Golf Club in Ellwood City, PA, and the perfect celebration for all of their friends and family.

The Grand Hall looked gorgeous and had the most wonderful Beauty and the Beast themed decor.  The roses under glass were simply amazing.  After a delicious dinner, everyone was quick to join in the fun for a fantastic dance party!

Christie and Jacob wanted to make sure everyone had a fabulous time and took the simple idea of “Be Our Guest” to a whole new level.  As the evening came to a close, there was a great atmosphere of joy and happiness as all of their guests joined in to wish them well in their new lives together.  It was a perfect ending to the perfect day.

Kaylyn and Greg (Fox Chapel Golf Club Reception)

With so many details to choose for a wedding day, it’s easy to forget to consider how the night will end.  While no one wants to focus on the day being completed, you’ll always remember the way you spent the last moments of your celebration.  Kaylyn and Greg came up with the most original and sweet idea for their wonderful reception held at the Fox Chapel Golf Club.

Before I explain the ending, I should note how amazing the Golf Club looked.  Everything from the dining area to the ballroom looked stunning.  I was glad they chose to have me provide some uplighting and a custom monogram to make things look even better!  It was the perfect setting for one of the most epic dance parties I’ve ever seen.

So, by this point, I’m sure you want to know how it ended.  After a wonderful dance party, all of the guests gathered in the front of the golf club while Kaylyn and Greg had one final slow dance alone.  It was sweet, romantic and a wonderful chance to just be together for a few moments before heading outside for cheers and hugs from all their favorite people.  The perfect ending to a truly unforgettable day.

Hannah and Tyler (Noah’s Event Venue Reception)

Some couples don’t like the idea of being the center of attention throughout their wedding day, while others embrace the opportunity.  Hannah and Tyler were not only comfortable and relaxed in the spotlight during their big day, they took the chance to share the attention with their closest friends and family.  Their beautifully customized reception was held at Noah’s Event Venue in Cranberry, PA.

One of the newest wedding venues in the Pittsburgh area, the ballroom at Noah’s Events looked amazing.  The newlyweds included fun and unique details as decorations through the building.  During the parent dances, Hannah danced with her father to a recording of them singing a fantastic and touching song that Hannah had written just for them.

Hannah and Tyler knew their guests wouldn’t hesitate when it was time to dance and celebrate.  Everyone was quick to join in the fun and get a little wild.  The newlyweds were surrounded by all of their favorite people as the last songs played, then they all went outside for a big sparkler send off.  The happy couple is now headed to Punta Cana for a little alone time away from the spotlight.

Claire and Andrew (Renaissance Pittsburgh Wedding Reception)

Couples have told me that they’ve had bad dreams before their wedding day, that no one at the reception will dance.  No matter how much fun your family and friends are, I think it’s easy to worry that for one reason or another, they won’t have a good time when it’s time to celebrate.  My simple advice is always this – when the bride and groom dance, everyone dances.  Claire and Andrew did an amazing job showing their guests exactly how to party at their elegant and fun wedding reception at the stunning Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel.

The Renaissance ballroom looked stunning, and I was thrilled that I could provide a custom monogram and red uplighting to make the room look even more amazing.

Claire and Andrew were so fun to work with, and when it came time to dance, they made sure everyone was a part of the celebration.  They both spent tons of time dancing and Claire even ran to tables to drag more people to join them.  They gave their friends and family an authentic reason to celebrate and party, and wow, did they party!  The night ended way too soon, but as the last song ended, the newlyweds were surrounded by all of their favorite people.  It was the perfect ending to a great day.
