Kelly & Dominic (Stonebridge Farm Wedding Reception)

Most couples are inspired by the weddings they attend each year for ideas for their own special day.  Imagine the challenge a professional photographer would face when planning her own wedding?  After seeing hundreds and hundreds of amazing celebrations, the possibilities might be overwhelming.  Thankfully, this was not the case for Kelly & Dominic.  Kelly, who is an extremely talented Pittsburgh wedding photographer, knew exactly what would make their special day an epic celebration of their love, and the results could not have been better.

Kelly and Dominic held their wedding ceremony and reception at the gorgeous Stonebridge Farm in Ambridge, PA.  Even though the weather may not have cooperated for the entire day, it didn’t keep the day from being absolutely perfect.

Not only did the reception feature a great sense of style and elegance, there was also a wonderful feeling of fun!  I knew right away what a great group this was going to be when they couldn’t help themselves to start dancing during cocktail hour!  As the sun went down, all of the guests had the time of their lives dancing to all sorts of great music.  The evening seemed to end entirely too soon, but not before all their guests sent the couple off with an awesome sparkler exit!

Jen and Robert (Greystone Fields Wedding Reception)

Anyone who knows me or my family knows that we’re pretty obsessed with all things Disney, so you can imagine I was thrilled to find out that Jen and Robert chose to incorporate lots of fantastic and unique Disney themed details at their magical, fun-filled wedding reception at Greystone Fields in Gibsonia, PA.

Jen and Robert spent lots of time creating some amazing customized items based on their favorite Disney movies and characters.  I simply adore their card box, which included a few hidden Mickeys!

Obviously, such fun and imaginative people would have friends and family who were ready to laugh, sing and dance once it was time to celebrate.  Everyone was quick to dance to music from wedding classics to the newest hits.  Everyone surrounded the newlyweds for one last song before saying good night and wishing them well on their new lives together.  Jen and Robert are, of course, headed off to their honeymoon in the one and only, Walt Disney World!

Ashley and Dustin (Omni William Penn Hotel Wedding)

One of the most fun aspects of being a DJ is working with couples who have truly found their ideal match.  Every once in a while I get the pleasure of playing a reception where not only the couple seems to fit together perfectly, but their families do as well.  Ashley and Dustin’s relatives and friends joined together seemlessly to party and celebrate at their amazing reception at the Omni William Penn hotel in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh.

The Grand Ballroom looked completely stunning with the ballcony surrounded by candles.  This made the prefect location for this once in a lifetime celebration.

To say that there was some dancing would be an insane understatement.  Ashley and Dustin knew the music that would keep their guests dancing, singing and getting wild on the extremely large dance floor.  With over FOUR HOURS of dance music, guests were still excited to head off to the after party!  The newlyweds started off their new lives together surrounded by their newly joined families who truly know how to throw a party.  The happy couple now gets a little time away as they head off to their honeymoon in Spain & Portugal.

Sara and Ryan (Fox Chapel Golf Club Wedding)

Every couple should have as much fun dancing on their wedding day as Sara and Ryan did.  It was so great watching them dance together the entire evening as they smiled, laughed and truly enjoyed every moment of their special day.

The reception was held at the beautiful Fox Chapel Golf Club in Fox Chapel, PA.  The Atrium, dining room and ballroom all looked stunning and made for the perfect venue for a fantastic celebration.  Guests were treated to an amazing evening, which also featured an entire cookie room filled with delicious treats.


Sara and Ryan weren’t the only ones who enjoyed themselves on the dance floor.  Their friends and family were quick to join in the celebration as they danced to a great variety of music.  At the end of the evening, everyone headed outside to wish the couple well with a sparkler send-off.  The newlyweds can now enjoy some time dancing on the beach during their romantic Hawaiian honeymoon!

Alexandra and Scott (Hotel Monaco Wedding)

I talk frequently with people about the importance of finding a venue that matches your style and taste.  Pittsburgh offers so many choices including museums, renovated churches, and some of the best high-end hotels.  Alex and Scott could not have made a better choice than holding their wedding and reception at the amazingly beautiful Hotel Monaco located in the heart of the downtown area.

After the ceremony and cocktails on the main floor of the hotel, guests were invited to the roof of the hotel, which was beautifully decorated for their celebration.  Guests had the best time taking advantage of the stunning flower wall to take photos and selfies.

Alex and Scott’s friends enjoyed dinner and dancing on a perfect summer evening with a stunning view of Pittsburgh!  When it was time to dance, everyone joined in and got a little crazy to a great variety of music from yesterday and today.  I can’t imagine a better location that was truly a reflection of this very cool and fun couple.  Their guests were treated to a one of a kind party that I’m sure will be talked about for years to come.

Amanda and Keith (Club at Shadow Lakes Wedding)

Weddings can be so many things.  Many people plan on how to make the day romantic, elegant and unique, but it’s so important to prepare for how much fun the day is going to be.  I knew from the moment I met Amanda and Keith, that they wouldn’t lose focus on what a great time their wedding at the Club at Shadow Lakes was going to be as their favorite people gathered to celebrate their new lives together.

The ballroom was decorated beautifully and showcased an amazing view of a perfect summer day.  I was thrilled to get to provide uplighting and a custom monogram in the entrance to the room.  As the sun went down, all the guests took advantage of the big dance floor to celebrate.

Amanda and Keith chose some great music for the reception, and their friends and family jumped at the chance to get silly, dance and have the best time ever.  The happy couple is now headed to the Riviera Maya where I’m sure their amazingly fun times will continue!
