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.

Kelli and Eric (Westin Convention Center)

I believe most people anxiously wait for real moments in life to get excited and be a little crazy.  Kelli and Eric’s friends and family were absolutely ready when they gathered at the Westin Convention Center Ballroom for a huge celebration like no other.

The large ballroom was the perfect location for the couple’s reception, and provided a great space for everyone to dance, sing, visit and enjoy themselves all night long.  At the end of the night everyone barely fit on the huge dance floor to give the couple a big send off.

It was obvious that Kelli and Eric’s guests were genuinely excited to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime occasion as many of them headed to the after-party at the hotel bar.  The newlyweds are now off to St. Lucia for some well deserved R&R, after their giant kickoff to their new lives together.

Kristen and Mikkel (Westin Convention Center DJ)

Some couples just know.  They know what they want, and they know what will work.  I LOVE working with couples like this.  I’m certainly always happy to lend my expertise to help make decisions, but when it comes down to it, the bride and groom are the ones who know best what is going to make their day perfect.  Kristen and Mikkel held their reception at the Westin Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh, and they made such amazing choices, that I’m certain they wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Since they were planning from out of town, Kristen, Mikkel, and I had a great time talking over Skype to discuss details.  They made great choices for  uplighting colors (pink and orange), monogram style and placement, and most importantly, what music was going to make their guests jump up and celebrate.

Their friends and family were truly ecstatic to join in the fun and dancing.  It was an evening that came to an end way too soon as guests crowded the dance floor for the last remaining songs.  The newlyweds are off to Jamaica for a romantic and relaxing honeymoon, which I’m sure will end up being another perfect choice.
