Natalie and Zach (Big Oak Meadows Wedding)

If you read a lot of wedding blogs (like this one), you’ll notice how couples are encouraged to “be present” during their wedding day. When surrounded by so many people and so much happening, it can be challenging to take a moment and truly appreciate the magic of each moment. Natalie and Zach did an amazing job of jujnot only soaking in the moments of their wedding day but also making sure all of their guests were able to enjoy their once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

Their ceremony and reception were held at the gorgeous Big Oak Meadows in Burghill, Ohio. They were married in a wooded area that was the perfect spot to say “I do”. As an extra special touch, Zach’s father officiated the ceremony! Afterward, guests made their way to the barn for cocktails, dinner, and lots of cookies!

Once dinner was over it was time to celebrate, and Zach and Natalie’s guests did not hesitate to dance and sing!

My favorite moment of the day came at the end of the night when Natalie and Zach took a few moments for a single slow dance after their guests left the barn. It was so special to witness them taking a few quiet moments together after an amazing celebration. After their dance, they headed outside where their guests had gathered to cheer one last time during their sparkler exit! The happy couple is now off for a very well-deserved honeymoon in Cancun!

Stefanie and Erik (The Atrium Wedding)

The coolest thing about weddings isj that they not only join together two people in a lifetime commitment but also join two groups of friends and families in their love of the newlyweds! Stefanie and Erik’s wedding at the Atrium in Prospect, PA was one that allowed all of their guests to truly feel part of the big day, and part of the happy couple’s new life together.

I can’t imagine a better choice of venue for Stefanie and Erik to hold their ceremony and reception. It was a perfect summer day as their guests gather for an amazing celebration.

Stefanie’s sister and brother helped keep the atmosphere awesome as they performed a great customized song set to the Friends TV theme song (this will be available on my Instagram soon)! Everything Erik and Stefanie prepared for their special day was focused on making sure every one of their guests would have an incredible time. The result was a beautiful day followed by an epic dance party that only had to end so their friends and family could get to the after-party!

Basia and Joe (The Pennsylvanian Wedding)

Some people ask me if I ever tire of only DJing weddings, and the answer is always the same… NEVER! It’s so awesome getting to work closely with couples to create a day that matches their unique style and tastes. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with so many fun couples and DJ their weddings in a variety of extraordinary venues throughout Pittsburgh and other great locations throughout Western Pennsylvania. Basia and Joe’s wedding at The Pennsylvanian was a perfect example of a wedding that was truly like no other, and was the perfect match for all of their friends and family who came ready for a celebration!

The Rotunda at the Pennsylvanian makes for one of the most stunning locations for in all of the Pittsburgh Area. Basia and Joe’s guests gathered on a perfect Summer day to witness their vows in this historical and gorgeous space before the reception began inside the Grand Hall.

Basia and Joe’s playlist was one of my favorite parts of their wedding day. They chose a great selection of EDM, house, and 80’s music for me to play throughout cocktails, dinner, and the incredibly epic dance party. Their guests enjoyed dancing and getting wild to music that was anything but the typical overplayed wedding hits. The unique and fun soundtrack kept everyone dancing all the way through the very last song when it was time to head off for more fun at the after-party! Basia and Joe’s hard work paid off in a one-of-a-kind celebration that I know I’ll never forget.

Bobbi and Xavier (White Barn Wedding)

There is nothing like getting to DJ for a group of people who are ready to party, dance, and celebrate all night long. There’s something magical about the type of crowd who gets more and more excited when each new song begins and would keep dancing until the break of dawn. Bobbi and Xavier knew their friends and family would be ready for an epic celebration held on a perfect summer day at The White Barn in Prospect, PA.

The White Barn looked amazing as always, and the weather was perfect for Bobbi and Xavier’s beautiful wedding ceremony! Afterward, guests made their way inside for cocktails, dinner, and cupcakes. I love the flower wall that was included in the cocktail space for guests to take photos!

Then, when it was time to dance, the fun really began!

I’m pretty sure I was as bummed as the newlyweds when it was time to say goodbye. It was an amazing day with a little something for everyone. Guests went wild all night and THEN headed off for more celebrating at the after-party! The happy couple is now headed off to Cancun for some well-deserved time together as husband and wife!

Molly and Rob (Bramblewood Wedding)

The best weddings are the ones that are made special for everyone. There’s nothing better than when a couple makes specific plans and arrangements to make sure all of their guests will have the best time while celebrating their special day. Molly and Rob went above and beyond for their wedding held on a beautiful summer day at Bramblewood in McDonald, PA.

Their ceremony was held by a beautiful lake where they exchanged heartfelt and hilarious vows to each other. Guests then made their way to the barn for cocktails, dinner, cookies, and a fabulous dance party!

Molly and Rob’s music selections for the day were a perfect match for their friends and family. From the ceremony through the last song, the newlyweds included songs from every genre imaginable. It was an evening that could have lasted until the sun came up! Guests danced and sang to oldies, wedding classics and today’s newest hits all the way until the last note of the last song. The happy couple is now off to Portugal for a well-earned honeymoon!

Ashley and Anthony (Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel Wedding Reception)

When did I realize that Ashley and Anthony were going to have a completely unforgettable wedding reception? Was it when they told me they wanted an epic dance party for the celebration at the beautiful Renaissance hotel, or that many of their guests would be traveling to Pittsburgh to be a part of their special day?

Was it when their guests cheered SO loud for the entrance of the wedding party, or when they started throwing money during their first dance as part of a Greek wedding tradition?

Perhaps it could have been when I first arrived at the Renaissance and saw how wonderfully decorated the ballroom was for everyone to enjoy a once-in-lifetime celebration…

or when the guests immediately crammed the dancefloor and didn’t stop until the very last song.

No, for me it was the very first moment I had the opportunity to meet with Ashley and Anthony. Their love for each other and their excitement to spend their big day with so many of their favorite people made it clear to me that theirs was a wedding celebration that would be like no other. They told me that they wanted the dance floor to be filled all night long and their friends and family did not disappoint. Once their unforgettable reception came to an end, everyone made their way to the hotel bar for an after-party that lasted late into the night. I had the best time getting to know the newlyweds and am thrilled I was able to be a part of such an amazing day!
