Stacie and Ron (Vinoski Winery Wedding Reception)

One of the best things about being a wedding DJ is how different and unique every celebration is.  I love when couples take the time to make their big day match their style and personalities.  Stacie and Ron planned their wedding to be one filled with wonderful moments that were specifically chosen for their friends and family to enjoy.

They chose the beautiful Vinoski Winery for their ceremony and reception, and it was the perfect venue for a great celebration.  The dining room looked amazing and included many custom details, including custom wood engraved names at each setting along with a wine stopper guest favor.  After dinner, guests took to the dance floor for a great variety of music from yesterday and today.

The newlyweds were sure to include a few sports themed songs in order to keep all the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh fans happy.  It was so fun to see people of all ages join in the celebration!  The time and effort that Stacie and Ron put into the making the day one that all of their guests are sure to remember for years to come.  The happy couple is now off to the Bahamas for a well earned honeymoon!

Jessica and Ryan (Grand Hall at the Priory Reception)

I believe one of the hardest things for a couple do to on their wedding day is to be able to relax, enjoy themselves, and actually live in the moment.  It’s entirely too easy to get caught up in all the action, worry about the details and stress about the scheduled events and miss out on just having a good time.  Jessica and Ryan did an amazing job avoiding this problem and were able to make the most of every second during their wonderful celebration held at the Grand Hall at the Priory.

The Grand Hall is probably one of the most appropriately named venues in all of Pittsburgh.  Everything looked incredibly stunning and was the perfect location for Jess and Ryan’s guests to enjoy an evening of fun and dancing.  All of their guests had plenty of time and lots of room for an amazing dance party!

Jess and Ryan made some super smart decisions regarding their events and timeline throughout the night that allowed them more time to spend with all of their favorite people.  I was impressed by their flexibility and it resulted in a fabulous night that I’m sure none of their guests will soon forget.  The newlyweds now get to go and enjoy every moment of their well-deserved honeymoon in Hawaii!

Sarah and Shaun (Pittsburgh Opera Wedding)

For some couples, wedding day traditions are moments they’ve been looking forward to their entire lives.  There are others though,  who would rather spend this once-in-a-lifetime occasion in a more relaxed and natural atmosphere.  Sarah and Shaun’s wedding was held at the Pittsburgh Opera and was the perfect match for their taste and style.

I’m still blown away by the amazing decor of the Pittsburgh Opera, it made the perfect space for a wonderful celebration.  The evening began as guests arrived and were treated immediately to cocktails before a fantastically humorous and sweet ceremony.  Friends and family moved to the main dining area for food stations, speeches and an amazing dance party!

Instead of worrying about events like a grand entrance, special dances or a cake cutting, Sarah and Shaun spent their time visiting with all of their favorite people throughout the incredible evening.  Everyone had a fabulous time dancing to a great variety of songs from yesterday and today and when the night ended, no one was ready to leave.  The entire wedding day was one meant for everyone, including the happy couple, to enjoy.  I’m sure this is one that no one, including me, will ever forget!

Clairissa and Luke (Laube Hall Wedding Reception)

Wedding receptions can be many things, but most of all, they should be FUN!  It’s so easy to get caught up in the stress of the big day, I think it’s great when I see couples let go and just enjoy all the wonderfulness that is going on around them.  Clairissa and Luke were the perfect example of this as they were able to spend lots of quality time with their family and friends during their epic celebration at the wonderful Laube Hall in Freeport, PA.

Laube Hall is a fabulous venue with lots of room and a great big dance floor.  I was glad I could provide the uplighting and a monogram for Clairissa and Luke, but I don’t think anything topped their awesome cat themed cake topper!  Once dinner and the formal dances were complete, everyone was ready for a dance party that included everything from Top 40 to Country to some classic hits.

Clairissa and Luke were sure to enjoy every moment of their wonderful celebration.  Every time I would look, they were engaged with their guests, and everyone laughing, singing and dancing all the way until the very last song.  After all of the excitement, the happy couple will finally get a chance to slow down as they head off to the Riviera Maya for a well-deserved honeymoon.

Catherine and Eric (Westin Pittsburgh Wedding Reception)

Weddings guests almost always consist of friends and family of different ages, various backgrounds and widely diverse music tastes.  Some of the best receptions I’ve been able to DJ for have been the ones that include a great mix of music to ensure that everyone has the time of their lives.  Catherine and Eric’s wonderful celebration at the Westin Pittsburgh did just that and it was an epic success.

The Allegheny Ballroom at the Westin was the perfect setting for an evening of fun, visiting and dancing.  The music for dinner included lots of great standards from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and more.  When the dancing started, guests filled the large dance floor to everything from Motown, the 70’s, all the way to today’s biggest hits.

One of the things I enjoyed most about Catherine and Eric’s celebration was how all of their guests, no matter what the age, joined in the dancing to both the older and the newer songs.  At the end of the night, the dance floor was packed for one big last dance.  There was lots of hugs and laughter as everyone gave their best wishes to the happy couple as they begin a new chapter in their lives together.

Hannah and Ryan (Hartwood Acres Mansion)

Many people are invited to quite a few weddings over the course of their lifetime, so I think it’s great when a couple chooses to add some unique details to their big day.  By making their celebration a little different than the norm, they treat their guests to a wonderful time that they will never forget.  Hannah and Ryan’s wedding at the Hartwood Acres Mansion featured lots of fun and memorable details that I’m sure their friends and family will be talking about for years to come.

The ceremony and reception were held outside on one of the most perfect summer days we’ve had in the Pittsburgh area.  Guests were then encouraged to mingle and roam the beautiful venue for both cocktails and the strolling dinner.  Instead of traditional assigned seating, this allowed guests to move about and enjoy time with friends both old and new.  After dinner, everyone gathered in the pavilion for the parent dances (where they broke out their terrible towels) and an epic dance party with music from both yesterday and today.

Hannah and Ryan put together a fabulous celebration that took full advantage of the wonderful spaces at Hartwood Acres Mansion.  Guests of all ages spent their time visiting, dancing and singing all the way to the very last song.  Everyone then piled onto the shuttle to go spend more time with the newlyweds at the after party.  I’m positive all of Hannah and Ryan’s friends and family will be telling everyone they know about this awesome couple and their fabulous celebration.
