Maria & Steve (Pittsburgh Renaissance Hotel )

Here’s another amazing wedding from the past couple of years that never made it to my website.  Maria Gaydosz and Steve Calvery held a spectacular reception at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh.

The Renaissance Hotel is a spectacular place for a reception.  The view of the city from the ballroom is simply breathtaking, and their attention to every detail is simply perfect.

Once again, I had the chance to work with Heather of Weddings By Heather.  She is so great at capturing wonderful moments.

As you can tell by these photos, Maria and Steve’s wedding was one crazy fun party.

Maria and Steve were kind enough to write me a fantastic reference after their wedding.  I feature it on my testimonials page because it so perfectly addresses the important concerns potential clients have. I have such a wonderful time at this reception, I was glad to get know this sweet and wonderful couple.

Tara & Jason (Grand Concourse Wedding Reception)

Even though I’ve had this website for many years, I’ve only recently started featuring extensive looks at the weddings where I perform.  Winter is typically considered the ‘slow season’ for DJs, so I thought it would be fun to showcase images from past weddings that never made it to the blog.

Tara Zurowski and Jason Hoover held their reception at the Grand Concourse located at Station Square in Pittsburgh.   I had worked with Tara and Jason with what ended up being an entire day long celebration of their wedding vows at various locations.  The Grand Concourse was a wonderful location for the first half of their wedding reception.

Tara and Jason entered the reception down the beautiful staircase and immediately launched into their bridal and parent dances.

The Grand Concourse created the prefect as atmosphere for their elegant and relaxed afternoon reception.  It truly created wonderful spots for the photographer to grab some stunning images.

After the meal, the guests all headed over to Tara’s family’s house for a more casual celebration that lasted long into the night with lots of dancing and fun.

Pittsburgh Magazine

Pittsburgh Magazine

I was extremely happy to hear that one of my clients from 2009 were going to have their wedding featured in the 2010 wedding edition of Pittsburgh Magazine.  Karen Kurey & Jeremy Rocco had an amazing reception held at the Sheraton in Station Square.  It was so much fun working with them to create such a beautiful, unique and wildly fun evening.  The photos featured in the magazine were taken by none other than the amazingly talented Heather Lahtinen of Weddings By Heather.  Because Heather’s work is so spectacular, she has two weddings featured in this special issue.  You can see more of Karen & Jeremy’s beautiful wedding photos at Heather’s website.

2011 Bride’s Choice Award

DJ Award 2010Since we’re looking back on the previous year, this would also be a good time to mention that I was selected as one of the Bride’s Choice Award Winners for the 3rd year in a row.  This award is handed out to the DJs who receive the best reviews on the Wedding Wire website.  I’m so grateful to have so many wonderful clients willing to take time after their wedding to leave feedback and compliments regarding my service.  It really means the world to me.

2009 Year In Review

2009 has been the most spectacular year.  I was fortunate to meet so many fascinating people. I feel blessed that I spent the year participating in these truly unique and special receptions.  Every year I put together some of my favorite images into a little montage, it was particularly difficult pick only a few pictures this year. I had so many amazing receptions to choose from.  I can’t thank these wonderful people enough for their friendship and for allowing me to part of their celebration. Congratulations to everyone!
