Stephanie and Brendan (Carnegie Museum Wedding Reception)

A common question people ask me is “how to get the party started after everyone has enjoyed a delicious meal?”.  The answer can vary depending on the guests, but every once in a while, I get to work with a couple who has found a fun and unique way to instantly get everyone on the dance floor.  Stephanie and Brendan figured that out, as well as many other wonderful details for their beautiful and elegant wedding reception at the Music Hall Foyer in the Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh.

 

I’ve been very blessed to play at the museum quiet a few times, and I’m always taken back by the incredible beauty of the music hall.

 

After Stephanie and Brendan’s friends and family enjoyed cocktails and dinner, it was time for some very special dances with the parents.  Not only were both dances incredibly sweet, Stephanie and her father’s dance was a medley of upbeat songs, ending on “We Are Family”.  They pulled everyone onto the dance floor and the celebration was instantly a success!

 

The music choices the newlyweds made were a perfect match for the friends and family.  Everything from classics to today’s biggest hits kept the party going.  In the end, Stephanie and Brendan were surrounded by their favorite people as they all sang and cheered.  The happy couple is headed off to Hawaii for a fun-filled and relaxing 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.

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.
