Jesse and Daniel (Hyatt House Wedding Reception)

Your wedding day should be a reflection of you. It’s the perfect opportunity to share your taste and style as a couple with those people in which you are closest. I was so excited to be part of Jesse and Daniel’s wedding, which featured so many wonderful details that I would want to include in my own wedding.

The reception was held on the South Side of Pittsburgh on the fantastic Terrace of the Hyatt Hotel. Not only was the view of the water stunning, the outdoor tent was perfect for visiting, dining and dancing. While I knew their theme was “Nerds in Love”, I didn’t know each table would feature Funko Pops of entertainment’s most iconic couples! Of course, there had to be custom Pops! made of the night’s most important couple. Jesse and Daniel were featured as Funko Pops!

Once guests thoroughly enjoyed dinner and a fabulous Pittsburgh Cookie table, there was plenty of time for an epic dance party featuring some of the best music ever! As if Jesse and Daniel hadn’t chosen enough of my favorite things for their wedding, once the party was over they headed to the happiest place on Earth for an epic honeymoon in Disneyland (and probably other parts of California too!).

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!

Dilnoza and Adam (Soba Restaurant Wedding)

I tell everyone that getting to go DJ at weddings is what I ‘get to do’. There’s a lot of work in being a DJ… meetings, paperwork, contracts, blog posts, etc etc… but actually getting to go and be part of someone’s biggest and best day is absolutely the most fun and rewarding experience. Originally I wasn’t supposed to be part of Dilnoza and Adam’s special day, but I’m so glad I was given the chance to be there and enjoy their beautiful and unique celebration.

Their ceremony and reception were held at Soba Restaurant in Pittsburgh, PA. The multiple rooms and levels of the restaurant were the perfect location for their guests to enjoy the ceremony, dinner stations and a fantastic dance party. Their ceremony even concluded with friends of the couple doing a live performance, which helped set the tone of fun and love that lasted throughout the night.

 

I feel so fortunate to have gotten the chance to know the newlyweds (just a little) before their wonderful wedding day. They created terrific once-in-a-lifetime moments for their friends and family to enjoy and I can’t imagine a more perfect way for them to celebrate their love. The newlyweds now get to enjoy a wonderful honeymoon in Italy before they begin the next chapter of their lives together.

Bernadette and Matthew (The Place at 534 Wedding)

Finding the right wedding venue can be a real struggle. Some couples find it extremely difficult to choose a location that not only matches their style but also provides the right atmosphere for their celebration. Bernadette and Matthew didn’t seem to have any trouble at all finding the perfect spot for their big day. Both their ceremony and reception were held at the beautiful Place at 534 in West Farmington, Ohio.

The Place at 534 provided many fantastic areas for Bernadette & Matthews’ ceremony, professional photos, dinner and dancing. There were also wonderful areas for the guests to enjoy. I can’t imagine the weather being any more perfect as the newlyweds’ friends and family enjoyed themselves throughout the evening.

Bernadette and Matthew were the life of the party when it was time to dance! They both kept grabbing guests to join them on the dance floor all night long! It was so fun watching everyone dance, sing and get silly to some amazing songs. After such a fabulous evening, the happy couple now gets to head off for an equally fabulous honeymoon in the Virgin Islands!

Rachel and Ian (Salvatore’s Banquets)

While all weddings are memorable, some are such a massive party that they become unforgettable. Rachel and Ian’s wedding at Salvatore’s in Pittsburgh, PA was a celebration that I know their guests will never forget!

The ballroom at Salvatore’s was stunning and provided the perfect amount of space for everyone to join in the celebration. After dinner guests immediately hit the dance floor to enjoy a great selection of music from yesterday and today.

Rachel and Ian did an amazing job choosing music for me to incorporate throughout the night. This included special songs for cocktails, dinner, and dancing, which gave their evening a customized soundtrack that everyone enjoyed. After a LOT of partying, singing and dancing, their guests joined in for the last few songs before they wished the couple tons of happiness for this new chapter of their lives. After so much time with friends and family, Rachel and Ian now get to spend some time alone on a romantic honeymoon in St. Lucia!

Donna and John (Veltre’s Wedding & Event Center)

One of my favorite parts of being a DJ in Pittsburgh for so many years is that occasionally I get to see former couples at the weddings of their siblings and friends. Playing Donna and John’s wedding was unbelievably special to me since I had played Donna’s daughter’s wedding 9 years ago! Donna and John held their beautiful and fun-filled celebration at the Veltre’s Wedding & Event Center in Plum, PA.

Their nuptials were held at an intimate ceremony with a small group of friends and family. Afterwards everyone met up for an amazing dinner and party!

It was such an honor for me to not only celebrate with Donna and John, but to also meet Donna’s grandchildren (who did an excellent job celebrating with all of the guests!). Everyone danced to a fantastic selection of music, including hits from every decade all the way up to some modern hits. The newlyweds visited, dance, and sang all night long. With their amazing celebration over, they headed off to Vegas for a very well-deserved honeymoon!
