Laura and Seth (Wedding Reception at the New Englander)

People often ask me if I ever get tired of DJing weddings, given that I’ve been doing it since I was 15. To that, I can honestly say, without a doubt, that I’ve never tired of being part of these incredible, unique, and memorable celebrations. DJing weddings is where my heart is, and I can’t imagine a more fulfilling way to spend my weekends. Laura and Seth’s wedding holds a special place in my heart as it marks my first “2nd generation” wedding, having previously had the honor of DJing Laura’s parent’s wedding!

Laura and Seth chose the charming New Englander in New Castle, PA, as the venue for their reception. The spacious room provided a perfect backdrop for their guests to enjoy a fantastic evening of celebration.

Their guest list was a diverse mix of friends and family spanning generations, which made for an exciting dance floor experience. It was a joy to see people of all ages come together, grooving to tunes from a wide range of genres.

One of the highlights of the night was spending time with young Aiden, who joined me in DJing and had a blast controlling the light show for everyone on the dance floor. Being part of this fun-filled wedding for this amazing family was an absolute thrill. The evening was a delightful blend of excellent food, wonderful company, and, of course, fantastic music!
