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.

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.

Meghan and Norbert (Carnegie Museum Wedding Reception)

I love to get to hear stories from couples about their relationship and how led up to their wedding day.  It’s so fun and helps me to get to know the bride and groom in order to prepare for their special day.  Meghan and Norbert had some amazing tales about their first date (a scavenger hunt around Pittsburgh) and their engagement (a helicopter ride over the city), that definitely let me know how unique and fun their celebration would be at the amazing Carnegie Museum in Oakland.

I can never say enough about how much I love to come to the Carnegie Museum.  Not only is it stunning, but everything about it is completely top notch.  Meghan and Norbert’s ceremony was held in the gorgeous Hall of Sculpture, and the reception was held in the beautiful and ornate Music Hall Foyer.

 

Meghan and Norbert’s amazing history let me know that they weren’t afraid to plan and work to create magical moments.  I had the best time working with them both since they wanted to create a celebration like no other.  Their hard work paid off big since all their guests had the time of their lives dancing, singing and just getting crazy with the newlyweds.  I’m looking forward to keeping in touch with these two since I’m sure they’re going to have more incredible stories to tell.

Lori and Drew (Carnegie Museum Wedding Reception)

The most unique thing about your wedding day will not be the venue, the wedding dress, or even the variety of treats displayed on the cookie table.  What makes every reception different is the guests who come to celebrate with the newlyweds.  Lori and Drew understood this from the beginning and made a lot of special plans to be sure their friends and family were treated to an evening like no other.  They focused their evening on spending time with each and every person who had played an important part in their lives.

Their ceremony and reception were held at the breathtaking Carnegie Museum Hall of Sculpture and Music Hall Foyer.  The decor was stunning, as was the celebration which featured a photo booth, hora and an epic display of cookies.

Lori and Drew ended their evening with a “90-2000’s Power Hour” of some of their favorite songs from high school and college.  This was such a fun way to bring back memories they had with some of the most important people in their lives.  After the last song and 2 additional songs, it was clear no one wanted to leave.  Everyone couldn’t get enough of this amazing evening with such a wonderful couple.  The newlyweds will be heading off to Japan for their honeymoon later this year.

Elizabeth and Kevin (Carnegie Museum)

Every once in while I get the rare opportunity to DJ a reception where it’s clear how much the guests enjoy a very wide variety of music.  At Elizabeth and Kevin’s celebration at the Carnegie Museum in Oakland, their guests went wild over music from the 50’s to today.  Young and old crowded the dance floor and went wild all night long.

The happy couple took the time to come up with a fantastic list of music suggestions for me to include throughout the evening, but also allowed me the flexibility to include requests from their friends and family.  This lead to a party that could not have been more fun for everyone.  The night ended with a packed dance floor and guests that were ready to head off for more celebrating at the after party.

Christina and Tom (Carnegie Museum)

While many aspects of wedding planning can seem like a chore, I feel that choosing music for your reception should be nothing but fun.  I encourage couples to grab their iPhones, some wine, and make an evening of it!  While I don’t know if wine was involved, Christina and Tom made a wonderful and diverse playlist for their fantastic celebration held at the Carnegie Museum in Oakland.

The museum always looks amazing, and the decor chosen by Christina and Tom added the perfect touch of elegance and style.  I loved their Penn State themed cake topper!

The newlyweds requested a great mix of music that included everything from country, 80’s, rock, top 40 and hip-hop.  Throughout the evening, their guests were able to enjoy music that appeals to every generation.  This allowed everyone an opportunity to hit the dance floor during their favorite songs.  Christina and Tom are currently celebrating their new life together on their honeymoon in St. Barts.
