Liz and Brian – Mayernik Center – Pittsburgh Wedding Reception

Liz and Brian had a beautiful wedding reception at the Mayernik Center just outside of Pittsburgh in Avonworth Park.  Here is a note I got from them after the wedding …

We can not thank you enough for the tremendous job you did at our wedding!!!  All week our families have been getting emails and phone calls and texts about what an amazing time they had!  People who came and thought they would say hello and have some dinner ended up staying almost the whole evening because the atmosphere was just that enticing!  Our friends loved the costumes and didn’t want to give them up.  There was something for everyone all night long! 
The slideshow turned out even better than we anticipated.  You set exactly the mood we were looking for and kept it going the whole night.  We have been going over everything again and again and thinking of all the fun we had.  The DJ definitely makes the reception, and boy did you ever MAKE IT!!!  We could not be happier with the way everything turned and you played one of the biggest roles in that happening!
We attached a couple of pictures, and I’ll let you know when we get more!
THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for EVERYTHING!!!
 Liz and Brian

I was also the DJ for Lindsey and Brandon (Brian’s sister) back in October of 2007.  Lindsey wanted to make sure she made it on my website. : )

What made it so much fun working with Brian and Liz was that not only did we have this history together, but they had their own unique vision of how they wanted their reception.  It’s very inspiring as a performer when a great client comes to you with an idea and now MY JOB is to see it thru and make it everything they wanted.  For example,  Liz and Brian wanted a very personal photo montage developed with my assistance and played immediately before their grand introduction.  This built energy and excitement for their arrival thru the use of some of their favorite songs and “theme-ing” the arrival music with the montage (Dave Matthews Band).  It was a spectacular way to kick off the night!

What made things a bit of a challenge was the layout of the room and the placement of my equipment.  After a few trials, this seemed to be the most un-intrusive set up at the Mayernik Center.

Notice the projector set up ON the head table.  A pull up screen located on the floor behind the head table was used for the montage.  This was the only location that could have been used because of how the Mayernik Center is set up and also being that the montage was shown before the Bridal Party’s arrival.
