Jessica and Erik (Bella Sera Wedding)

Most people would agree that it’s important to have a variety of music throughout the wedding day.  Jessica and Erik did a fantastic job of including many different styles and genres of music for their beautiful ceremony and reception at Bella Sera in Canonsburg, PA.

I was fortunate enough to DJ Erik’s sister’s wedding a few years back, and was thrilled that they chose me to be a part of this celebration.  As luck would have it, we discovered I had also been the DJ for their ceremony officiant over 15 years ago!

Jessica and Erik’s unique playlist included beautiful piano instrumentals, classic rock, alternative, singer-songwriters, Top 40, disco, and even a few Disney tunes sprinkled in throughout the evening.  It was the perfect mix for their friends and family.  Jessica and Erik are now off to Walt Disney World for their honeymoon.

Kelly and Nate (Longue Vue Club)

I love to see how people can use songs to make the biggest day of their lives like no other.  Kelly and Nate put great effort into choosing the soundtrack for their special day at the Long Vue Club in Penn Hills, PA.

The outdoor space  at the Longue Vue Club was the perfect venue for both their ceremony and cocktail hour on a perfect fall day.  The newlyweds had chosen almost all of the great music for their ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner in order to share more of their style with friends and family.  To further enhance the mood, I was able to provide uplighting in the ballroom for dinner and dancing.

When it was time to get the party started, everyone let loose on the dance floor to a wide variety of new and classic music.  Kelly and Nate gave me great song choices including tunes for a 90’s dance medley which everybody loved…it was another completely original touch.  With their perfect wedding day behind them, the newlyweds are headed off for a romantic honeymoon in San Francisco and Maui.

Shannon and Jason (Four Points Sheraton)

Since last week’s blog covered the importance of a great entrance for your reception, it seems fitting this week to discuss the perfect ending.  Most couples I meet with would envy the amazing finish that Shannon and Jason had for their big day held at the Four Points Sheraton in Cranberry, PA.

Shannon and Jason scheduled a special after-party for after their reception, so they were able to call an end to the dancing portion of their evening with the majority of their guests still in attendance.  The result was a huge circle of friends and family surrounding them as they enjoyed one last dance together.

The entire reception ran smoothly and allowed plenty of time for everyone to get a little crazy.  It was great to see so many of the newlyweds’ friends and family heading off to celebrate even more.  Shannon and Jason are off to Riviera Maya for what I’m sure will be a perfectly timed honeymoon.

Jennifer and Jeremy (Southpointe Golf Club)

The music and style you choose for your grand entrance into the reception can help set the tone for the entire evening.  Soft and sophisticated, crazy and wild, or just fun and loud music will let your guests know exactly what your plans for the celebration will be.  Jennifer and Jeremy took the time to create their own special mix for their epic entrance into the ballroom at the Southpointe Golf Club, and it was the perfect way to start their perfect party.

In addition to their custom entrance, the newlyweds included lots of great touches at the reception including a candy buffet, photo booth, and even had the cake prepared in advanced for their guests to take home to enjoy.

Jennifer and Jeremy did a spectacular job planning their big day, leaving lots of time for visiting and dancing.  After a wonderful celebration, the couple was able to enjoy one last song with their closest friends and family before heading off to Aruba to begin a new chapter in their lives together.

Emilie and Micah (Shannopin Country Club)

Emilie and Micah put together a wedding day which was the perfect mix of elegance and fun. They made great choices for their reception at the Shannopin Country Club that not only matched their style, but was a fantastic time for everyone.

The ballroom at Shannopin was filed with special touches to make the space feel even more elegant than usual.  Custom decorations, a fun cake topper, and a complete room dedicated to cookies created the perfect setting to celebrate Emilie and Micah.

As everyone enjoyed visiting, dancing, and singing, it was clear how happy they were to be a part of Emilie and Micah’s big day.  All the hard work everyone had done created a day that was truly elegant, romantic, and a perfect fit for this wonderful couple.

Angela and Jason (Montour Heights Country Club)

No matter how diverse a bride and groom’s styles may be, the combination of the two can make their wedding day wonderfully special and unique.  Angela and Jason combined tastes of Persia, England, and Pittsburgh for their big day at the Montour Heights Country Club in Moon Township, PA.

The reception was held on the terrace under a beautiful tent.  Their choice of colors and decorations helped make the space feel intimate and elegant.  I was able to provide a monogram on the ceiling above the dance floor which not only looked great, but helped light up the dance area later in the evening.

Angela and Jason took great care in choosing music for their celebration. Their choices of Iranian, American, and English artists made a marvelous variety for everyone to enjoy.  I had the best time watching their guests crowd the dance floor and cheer happily before the couple headed off for their honeymoon in Maui.
