Nicole and Josh (Omni William Penn Hotel Wedding Reception)

There is nothing that compares to the excitement of a wedding day. There’s an energy in the air that radiates from the newlyweds and their families and radiates through all in attendance. From the moment I met with Nicole and Josh (and Nicole’s mom Debbie), I knew their reception would be one full of fun and energy where everyone would come to have the time of their lives.

The reception was held at the Omni William Penn hotel. The ballroom was absolutely stunning, featuring beautiful candles, full-sized trees, and a customized dance floor that made the perfect location or an epic dance party!

The playlist for the night was wonderfully customized to match the styles of the newlyweds, as well as their friends and family. Guests danced to everything from the Grateful Dead to Doja Cat. The evening even included an “Afterglow” party where guests were treated to a late night buffet and, of course, even more dancing! After such a perfect day, the happy couple are now continuing their celebration on their honeymoon in Hawaii!

Nancy and Kameron (Omni William Penn Wedding Reception)

One of the things that make wedding receptions so much fun is when the happy couple provides great options for their guests to enjoy.  This ensures that all their friends and family will have the time of their lives while celebrating with the newlyweds.  Nancy and Kameron did an excellent job choosing a wonderful selection of food and music for their party at the Omni William Penn Hotel in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh.

Their reception was held in the Urban Ballroom, which is a beautiful space with unique charm and decor.

After guests enjoyed a fabulous meal, everyone joined in the fun to dance to great music from yesterday and today.  Friends and family were also treated to a delicious cookie table and late night buffet!



Nancy and Kameron did an excellent job choosing music for their celebration.  They made sure there was a nice selection of 70s & 80s hits early in the night and then ended the evening with some newer hip-hop songs that they love.   All of this great variety made up for the perfect mix that kept everyone smiling and dancing all night long.  The happy couple is soon headed off for a well deserved honeymoon in Hawaii!

Mary Kate and Brian (Omni William Penn Hotel Wedding Reception)

Coming from a DJ, this might seem a little obvious, but I find it amazing how much fun you can have when you choose just the right music for your wedding.  Mary Kate and Brian were absolutely brilliant with the ways they used music throughout their celebration, held on a beautiful fall day at the Omni William Penn Hotel in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh.

The Grand Ballroom at the Omni is simply one of the most beautiful spaces in Pittsburgh.

Mary Kate and Brian’s reception featured an epic pre-dinner dance party, which helped set the tone for an evening that would be unforgettable!


Mary Kate and Brian’s playlist included everything from oldies to old skool.  There was something for everyone, including a few surprises, mashups and megamixes.  At the end of the night, it was clear that no one was ready for the night to end.  It was a good thing the newlyweds were prepared to join everyone at the after party.  The happy couple now gets to head off to enjoy some more fantastic music as they relax on their Hawaiian honeymoon!

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.

Jackie and Jeff (Omni William Penn Wedding DJ)

Weddings are serious business, but the couples who don’t take themselves too seriously are the ones who have the best time on their special day.  From the moment I met Jackie and Jeff,  I knew I wanted to be a part of their fun-filled wedding celebration.  Their ceremony and reception were both held in the Urban Room at the elegant Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh, PA.

The Urban Room is an impressive ballroom with a unique Great Gatsby feel.  The staff at the Omni did a great job during cocktails transforming the room from the ceremony to the reception.


Jackie and Jeff’s guests were as friendly and fun as I had expected.  Everyone was clearly excited to dance and party with the newlyweds.  The fun continued as their closest family and friends headed to the after party.  The happy couple is now off to create more memories on their European honeymoon.

Holly and Neil (Omni William Penn Hotel)

The main reason I choose to only DJ for weddings is because I love the fact that no celebration is ever the same.  I love working with people to help create a day which truly reflects their style and tastes.  I can’t think of a better example than the elegant and beautiful reception of Holly and Neil, held in the Urban Room at the Omni William Penn Hotel.

Although they now live in Texas, Holly and Neil gathered their friends and family in downtown Pittsburgh for an evening of class and sophistication.  Guests were in awe as they entered the beautiful Urban Room for dinner and dancing.  Holly and Neil’s background music for cocktails and the meal were a perfect match for their celebration.

When it was time to cut loose, everyone danced to a great variety of songs including Motown classics, rock hits, and some newer dance selections.  The newlyweds and their closest guests danced all the way until 1 AM!  Holly and Neil are now off to spend some time alone together on their romantic Hawaiian honeymoon.
