Colleen and Chris (Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh)

Everyone has their own favorite style of music, and it’s always fun to work with with couples who have some unique ideas for their wedding day.  Colleen and Chris had wonderful selections for their wedding day, and even got a great surprise from Colleen’s musical family!  Their wedding ceremony and reception were held on a perfect Spring day at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.

The Children’s Museum makes for a wonderful venue to hold a wedding.  There are lots of great spaces for the entire celebration.

During the toasts, a large number of Colleen’s family broke into an amazing version of “Happy Together” including guitars, a trumpet and tambourine!  It was a sweet and entertaining moment for everyone.


The music for the evening included songs from musicals, standards, oldies, 70’s and some of today’s hits as well.  It was fun to watch guests of all ages on the dance floor join in the party!  Colleen and Chris put together an amazing wedding soundtrack that will keep their guests talking for years to come.  The happy couple is headed off to Paris for a well deserved honeymoon.

Janel and Nick (Carnegie Museum Wedding Reception)

One of the best parts of getting to DJ weddings is that I get to play such a great variety of music in a single evening, and I love working with couples who are as passionate about the music for their big day as I am.   Janel and Nick worked hard to create a soundtrack for their celebration that was the perfect match for all their sweet and fun guests.  Their reception was held at the amazingly beautiful Carnegie Museum Music Hall Foyer.

If you regularly follow my blogs, you know how much I adore working at the Carnegie Museum.  The staff is fantastic, and it’s just the most stunning venue around.  The museum also provides lots of space for visiting, dining and dancing!


Janel and Nick chose a wonderful mix of songs to play through the entire celebration.  Everything from oldies, R&B to today’s music provided the right astmophere for their friends and family to join in the fun until the very last song.  The happy couple is now off to enjoy a well-deserved honeymoon in the Bahamas!

Christina and Christopher (Carnegie Museum Wedding Reception)

I feel blessed to get to work with some of the nicest couples in Pittsburgh.  It’s so fun to work with those who are truly excited to celebrate their love together surrounded by all their favorite people.  Christina and Chris worked hard putting together an epic celebration that included wonderful music, amazing treats and some really unforgettable moments.  Their wedding reception was held on St. Patrick’s Day at the gorgeous Carnegie Museum Hall of Sculpture.

What can I say about this venue?  It’s just stunning, elegant and was the perfect choice for Christina and Chris’s celebration.  Tori and the rest of the staff did their usual amazing job at making everything perfect.

The newlyweds chose wonderful music to include throughout the evening.  Their selections were the perfect match for their guests, as everyone was quick to join in the dance party!


Not only was it a thrill to get to know Christina and Chris, their friends and family were also wonderful, sweet and really knew how to celebrate!  Among all these great guests was an amazing wedding couple I had worked with back in 2010!  On top of all this, the newlyweds also hired some of the best vendors in the world (WeddingsbyAlisa & SyncopatedPictures).  All of these perfectly planned elements came together into an amazing day that I’m sure no one will soon forget.  The happy couple sets off soon for their well-deserved Hawaiian honeymoon.

Christy and Ryan (Carnegie Museum Wedding Reception)

Choosing the right time of year to get married can be just as important as finding the right venue and wedding vendors.  Pittsburgh offers such distinct seasons which can offer wonderful options for colors and themes.  A winter wedding was the perfect fit for Christy and Ryan’s elegant and fun reception, held at the Carnegie Museum Music Hall Foyer in Oakland.

I’ve always been in awe of the beauty of the Music Hall Foyer, but it looked even more stunning with the perfect winter colors.  There were little hints of silver snowflakes throughout the museum, including on the amazing candy buffet!

I can’t think of a more perfect way for me to the end the 2017 wedding season than getting to DJ for Christy and Ryan.  They were so fun to work with, and really wanted to be sure their guests had a great time.  This allowed me to play the music everyone wanted to hear, from oldies to today’s newest hits.  All their friends and family joined in the celebration along with the newlyweds.  After their perfect winter celebration, Christy and Ryan are now prepared to exchange Pittsburgh’s current weather for warmer climates on their honeymoon in Bora Bora.

Jessica and Jeffrey (Lenape Heights Golf Resort Reception)

When wedding guests head to work on Monday morning, they’ll be faced with one question… “How was the wedding?”.   Jessica and Jeffrey knew they wanted the answers to be “FUN!”, “AMAZING!” and “A TOTAL BLAST!”.   They included so many wonderful details in their reception, that they guaranteed that all of their friends and family members would have one of the most enjoyable nights of their lives.

Their wedding was held at the Lenape Heights Golf Resort in Ford City, PA.  Not only did the ballroom looking stunning with beautiful decorations, but I was able to provide uplighting and a monogram to make the room look even more special for the celebration.  Throughout the evening, we used various colors on the walls to keep things fun and beautiful.  Jessica and Jeffrey provided motion activated wristbands to all of their guests, so when the dancing started, the party was literally LIT!

The newlyweds made sure to spend time dancing and singing with everyone to some amazingly fun songs from yesterday and today. No one wanted to stop moving and partying as the last songs played and it was time to wish the newlyweds goodbye with a grand sparkler exit. The happy couple is now headed off to Jamaica for a honeymoon of fun and relaxation, which they both totally deserve.

Maria and Steven (Pittsburgh Airport Marriott Reception)

One of my favorite things about being a wedding DJ is working with couples who really want their day to be fun for all who are invited.  With everyone putting so much focus on the newlyweds, it’s truly special to see couples who spend so much effort towards making sure their guests are going to enjoy the day just as much.  Maria and Steven’s sweet and caring personalities made it easy for them to plan an amazing wedding reception for them and all of their closest friends and family at the wonderful Pittsburgh Airport Marriott in Moon Township, PA.

The Three Rivers Room at the Marriott looked amazing with glitter and shiny silver accents and blue uplighting.  Guests were treated to an adorable custom bottle of wine at each place setting.


Maria and Steven entered the ballroom and set the tone that tonight would be a celebration like no other.  Everyone took their lead and there was no hesitation when the dance floor opened.  They joined in to enjoy a great dance party that featured hits including oldies, old skool hip-hop, 70’s and today.  It could not have been a more perfect ending to the happy couple’s amazing day as they were surrounded by all of their closest people.  Guests had come from near and far, and the newlyweds were sure to give them a night to remember.
