Patricia and Nick (Pittsburgh Airport Marriott)

The best thing about my job is that I get to meet some of the nicest people in Pittsburgh, and help them plan one of the biggest days of their lives.  I love working with people who have a passion for music and other special details that will help make their wedding day stand out from all others.  Patricia and Nick’s reception was held at the wonderful Pittsburgh Airport Marriott in Moon Township, PA.

The ballroom looked amazing with wonderful blue accents and uplighting!

Patricia and Nick provided a fantastic selection of music for their friends and family to enjoy.  They included great and unique selections that were special to both them and their families.

Patricia and Nick, as well as their incredibly sweet families, had a fabulous evening of visiting, singing and dancing.  Their well-planned evening gave everyone the chance to enjoy time with the newlyweds.  The happy couple is soon headed off to Lake Tahoe for a well deserved honeymoon!

Jennifer and Kevin (Canonsburg PA Wedding Reception)

Every once in a while, I have the opportunity to DJ for a couple who is having their reception some place a little more private than a local hotel, golf club or museum.   There is something incredibly special about inviting your friends and family to your family home that just can’t be duplicated anywhere else.  Jennifer and Kevin’s celebration was held in the backyard of Kevin’s parents house in Canonsburg, PA,  and was the perfect celebration for an evening of fun, food and dancing.

The backyard was transformed into an amazingly beautiful space for a party no one will soon forget!

Guests danced to music from every genre imaginable.  Jennifer and Kevin’s friends and family got wild to songs from oldies to today’s biggest hits.

Having a wedding at home creates a wonderfully special and relaxed atmosphere for everyone involved, while still remaining an elegant and beautiful event.  It was the perfect fit for Jennifer and Kevin as they were able to celebrate their new lives together with all their favorite people.

Carmen + Casey (Antonelli’s Event Center Wedding Reception)

Successful weddings are all about family.  When you get engaged, it’s family that steps in to help plan and execute everything that will make the day perfect.  As two separate families become one, it gives everyone a fantastic reason to celebrate.  Carmen and Casey’s wedding reception was one neither of their families will ever forget.  Their elegant and crazy fun party was held at the beautiful Antonelli’s Event Center in Irwin, PA.

The ballroom looked amazing and featured tons of special details, many provided or created by the friends and family of the happy couple!

Carmen’s mom organized a super fun flash mob to “Dancing Queen”, which set a wonderful tone to get the celebration in full gear!  After that, everyone crowded the dance floor to great music from all genres.

Carmen and Casey’s families came together to ensure that the entire evening was a success.  At the end of the night, guests of all ages were excited to head to the after-party.  The newlyweds now get to spend a little time away from family as they head to their romantic Hawaiian honeymoon.

Kaitlyn and Andrew (Phipps Conservatory Wedding)

I’ll admit, I get excited when couples find incredibly special ideas to include as part of their wedding day.  I also love the people who choose to make the day their own instead of sticking to traditions that don’t match their style.  Kaitlyn and Andrew included lots of custom details and their entire celebration was the perfect match for them.  Their ceremony and reception was held on a perfect summer day at the always beautiful Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden.

Once guests entered the Special Events Room, they each received a special surprise at their table of a lucky bamboo tree, all of which was loving made by Andrew.  What a great and unique favor for everyone to take home!

Kaitlyn and Andrew had also chosen some fantastic music for dinner and dancing.  Everyone sang and danced to some wonderful music from oldies to today’s hits.

Kaitlyn and Andrew put a lot of time and energy on the details of their big day, and it all paid off.  They made perfect choices that made everything feel comfortable for not only them, but everyone involved.  At the end of the night they were surrounded by all of their favorite people who were clearly thrilled to help them celebrate their new lives together.

Caitlin and Mark (Pittsburgh Botanic Garden Wedding)

I’ve been blogging a lot this year about the planning of the wedding day schedule.  Every couple has to decide if they’ll  spend more time visiting, taking photos, etc.  Sometimes, I get to work with a couple like Caitlin and Mark, who planned their day so there would be LOTS of time for dancing and celebrating.  Their ceremony and reception was held on a perfect summer day at the beautiful Pittsburgh Botanic Garden in Oakdale, PA.

The setting and day could not have been more perfect for a couple who enjoys the great outdoors.  Guests were able to enjoy both the sun as well as the AC inside as they visited with friends and family.

Shortly after dinner, a dance party erupted on the dance floor and everyone got a chance to party to a great selection of music from yesterday and today.

With so much time to celebrate, I was able to play some amazingly fun songs that aren’t able to be included at many weddings.  Caitlin and Mark suggested just the right mix of music for their wild bunch.  The happy couple now gets to take a break from dancing as they head to Michigan for a well-deserved honeymoon.

Alisia and Jonathan (Shady Elms Farm)

Of all the decisions a couple has to make when planning their wedding day, I believe one of the most challenging has to be planning a schedule that allows them to spend quality time with their friends and family when there’s so many things they’re supposed to do.  Alisia and Jon prepared for a day that would ensure they could enjoy every moment, and everyone, that came to their special celebration at Shady Elms Farm in Hickory, PA.

Shady Elms Farm is a wonderful wedding venue, and served as the perfect spot for the ceremony, cocktails and reception.  Mother Nature provided a perfect summer day, so all the guests could enjoy themselves both inside and out!

The music for the evening was as varied as those who attended.  Guests enjoyed some classics and standards throughout dinner, and then hit the dance floor to pop music from the 60’s to today.

Alisia and Jon’s guests were thrilled to be part of their special day, and it was great that they could spend so much time with the happy couple.  The night ended with a grand sparkler exit and even then it was clear that no one was ready for the night to end, as guests lingered just to have a few more moments with the newlyweds.
