Sarah and Brian (Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh)

Wedding days are elegant, serious, romantic, and beautiful, but at the same time they are also funny, loud, joyous and absolutely crazy.  Sarah and Brian road this roller coaster of emotions with style during their perfect celebration at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.

The art studio at the museum makes the most amazing location for a ceremony!  Once Sarah and Brian tied the knot, guests made their way to the wonderfully decorated Big Red Room for dinner and a wild dance party.

Sarah and Brian made the most of their big day by making sure to spend lots of time with their friends and family.  They also took time to join in the dancing and singing all the way until midnight!  The couple will soon embark on their honeymoon where they can reflect on their wonderful and successful wedding day!

Sarah and Jason (Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh)

Putting together a wedding is all about finding the right mix.  This is true when it comes to the choosing the guests, the food, and definitely the music.  Sarah and Jason could offer a master’s class on assembling the right blend of personal tastes and guest pleasing elements.  The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh was the perfect venue for their fun and unique ceremony and reception.

From the moment I first met Sarah and Jason, it was clear how much they cared about music.  It was great fun to assemble their music playlist which included some special surprises throughout the evening.  Music is clearly at the center of their relationship. When Jason told me the entrance song, he said, “Sarah told me she wanted to enter to Rush, which is why I love her.”

Throughout the night, the music was a fantastic selection of rock, classic guitar, Motown, and top 40 music.  This great mix gave all the guests a chance to get up and be part of the celebration.  Sarah and Jason put together an amazing day that was meant for everyone to enjoy, and they certainly did!

Connie and Daniel (Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh)

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.

Shannon and Cole (Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh)

Every wedding contains a million details, all of which will come together to create a day which is completely your own.  Shannon and Cole worked tirelessly on their amazing wedding and reception held at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.  With the help of family and friends, their celebration was romantic, unique, and completely awesome.

Children's Museum of Pittsburgh (31 of 31) One important detail I was able to help out with was the newlyweds’ customized playlist.  They avoided overplayed and cheesy songs, and instead used great songs to create a great vibe.  Their song choices included great indie singer-songwriters, and later in the night some amazing 90’s tunes.  Dancing started off with a hora which filled up the big dance floor quickly as the newlyweds were hoisted in the air!

Shannon and Cole avoided many wedding traditions, and instead spent every moment of the special day enjoying amazing moments with their guests.   Their choices in details and music helped make the day a perfect reflection of their personalities.  They can enjoy every moment of their honeymoon in Puerto Rico knowing their day  had been a complete success.

Kira and Ryan (Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh)

From the moment I met Kira and Ryan, I knew their reception would be something special.  Their chemistry and love for life was immediately evident and I was thrilled when they chose me to be their DJ.  Since they both work as musicians, I knew we would have great fun working together on the perfect playlist.

The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh was the perfect location for the elegant and unique celebration.  I received many compliments all night long about Kira and Ryan’s fantastic music choices.  They chose to have me provide uplighting for the Big Red Room which really helped customize the space to their colors.

Ryan and Kira tore up the dance floor along with their friends and family to a great mix of music.  Everyone danced and sung along with great conviction, and it was a party I had hoped would never end.  I consider myself fortunate not only to have been part of such a perfect day, but for getting to know these wonderfully wild, funny, Disney-loving, crazy-talented newlyweds.

Emily and Ryan (Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh)

I find it inspiring when a couple is brave enough to truly customize their wedding to create an experience like nothing else.  Emily and Ryan were completely fearless when planning their special day held entirely at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.

Part of what made their celebration unique was avoiding many traditional elements (no bridal party, no head table or sweetheart table).  They included a variety of one-of-a-kind details, of which the most obvious was Emily’s stunning non-traditional wedding dress, which suited her style perfectly.

The music the newlyweds chose was the perfect match for their big day.  Everything from the ceremony to the last song was a fun twist on the standards (including the Hora to kick off the dance celebration was genius).  Emily & Ryan never hesitated to make bold choices and the results were spectacular.
