Kaitlyn and Joseph (Carnegie Museum)

When it comes to wedding planning, I love to work with couples that want to dig into the details of the reception.  I’m a huge fan of making lists and triple checking everything to make sure things go well during this once-in-a-lifetime event.  Kaitlyn, Joe and I could not have been a more perfect match.  We had a great time discussing and putting together the music and events for their celebration at the Carnegie Museum in Oakland.

The Music Hall Foyer is always stunning, and the decorations the newlyweds chose were a perfect match for the elegant atmosphere.

Kaitlyn and Joe provided excellent direction when it came to music, but also gave me the flexibility to be sure their guests heard a wide variety of fun songs.  Everyone had a chance to join in the fun and sing and dance to hits from yesterday and today.  The happy couple will continue to reap the benefits of their amazing planning talents as they enjoy a well-deserved honeymoon in Maui.

Constance and William (Carnegie Museum Wedding)

Most weddings end up being a mix of family or ethnic traditions mixed with modern elements.  Determining which elements to include of each can be challenging.  Constance and Bill chose wonderful details to include in their elegant reception at the Carnegie Museum in Oakland.

The Music Hall Foyer at the Museum always gives a wonderful sense of class and style.  The room looked amazing with the stunning place setting and flower arrangements.

Constance and Bill chose to include a traditional Greek money dance, where their guests threw bills directly on the floor as they danced along with the newlyweds.  It was fantastic!

One of the more modern elements I was able to help with was providing a great mix of songs that include Top 40 hits from today, as well as some amazing songs from the 80’s & 90’s.  The newlyweds treated their friends and family to a beautiful celebration that truly had something for everyone.  The happy couple will leave soon for a romantic honeymoon in Hawaii.

Christina and Garrett (Carnegie Museum Wedding)

Some of the best receptions are the ones where most of the guest leave feeling a little disappointed.  As a DJ, there’s nothing better than seeing friends and family of the bride and groom sad that the party is over.  Christina and Garrett’s wonderful celebration at the Carnegie Museum left everyone, including me, convinced they could have danced until dawn.

The Music Hall Foyer at the museum is simply the most elegant and stunning venue in Pittsburgh.  The newlyweds added lots of personal details throughout the space, but my favorite has to be their anniversary piñata!

Christina and Garrett planned for a special evening that allowed them plenty of time for celebrating, eating, visiting and lots of dancing.  Their guests wasted no time filling up the large dance floor and going crazy to great songs from the 60’s to today.  After two “One More Song!” encores it was clear no one was ready to see the night end.  The happy couple planned ahead for that as well, as everyone headed off to the after-party to continue the epic celebration.

Kate and Chris (Carnegie Museum)

I frequently have the opportunity to DJ weddings for people who have grown up in Pittsburgh and had to move away for school, jobs or other reasons.  Kate and Chris came back to the city for their big celebration at the Carnegie Museum in Oakland.

The Music Hall Foyer looked stunning as the newlyweds had their first dance.  I can’t think of a better venue to treat out-of-town guests to the best of Pittsburgh.

Kate and Chris had invited lots of friends and family to be part of their special day.  They were so excited to be with the happy couple, that once it was time to dance everyone crowded the floor and got crazy.  There wasn’t a dull moment all evening as the guests danced and sang to every single song that played.  The newlyweds now get to visit more destinations before heading back home.  They are headed to Thailand and Vietnam for a once in a life time honeymoon!

Victoria and Ben (Carnegie Museum Wedding DJ)

Many couples worry about hiring a wedding DJ who may act corny or play cheesy music. It’s important that the style of the DJ and the music matches the tastes of the bride and groom. Tory and Ben knew what was right for for their elegant and wonderfully fun celebration at the Carnegie Museum Music Hall Foyer.

The Carnegie Museum continues to be my favorite venue in Pittsburgh. The beauty and elegance of the Music Hall Foyer just can’t be matched.

Tory and Ben provided me terrific guidance regarding the playlist for their celebration.  They knew exactly what their friends and family would enjoy, but also gave me the opportunity to contribute to the music selections.   Everyone had a great time dancing, singing and celebrating with the newlyweds.  The happy couple created a beautiful and modern celebration that no one will ever forget.

Lisa and Joseph (Carnegie Museum Wedding DJ)

Almost anyone you meet would tell you that they love music, but only a select few people are truly passionate about a wide variety of songs and artists.  Even fewer still know how to craft a great playlist to create their ideal wedding celebration.  Lisa and Joe’s passion and knowledge of music allowed them to choose the perfect soundtrack for their reception at the Carnegie Museum’s Music Hall Foyer in Pittsburgh, PA

The Music Hall is my absolutely favorite place to DJ in Pittsburgh.  Such an amazingly beautiful venue that is elegant and timeless.

Lisa and Joe’s friends and family were tuned in to the couple’s music selections as everyone cheered and sang along to each song.  Everyone partied and danced all night long before heading off to the after party for more celebrating.  The happy couple is headed off to a romantic Mediterranean Cruise where they can relax and, I’m sure, listen to some more great music.
