Samanth & Mike - September 27th, 2008

It's been a while since I was at the Twentieth Century Club and I'm glad to be back. This place oozes with elegance and style.

Here's a quick setup picture.

Here is the speaker I put out by the bar where cocktails were held.

Room Pictures. . . Breath-taking.

Samantha and Mike's first dance.

Mike and his lovely mother Mary Ann.

Dad's thank you speech. Was a great speech. . . Laughing then tearing up.

Next was our "Best Woman" Sara. Sara did a wonderful job.

I had a chance to eat a slice of the wedding cake. OMG, it was delicious!

Samantha got a 30th Wedding Anniversary Cake for her parents. Thier anniversary was on the 23rd.

We had so much dancing going on this was just a small bit of the pictures taking.

Elizabeth & Dan - September 20th, 2008

Dan and Liz's wedding reception took place at the wonderful Bella Sera in Canonsburg, PA.

My set up tables were a little large today. The round tables were there to display the wonderful glass sculptures Liz's aunt made her. Putting the speakers in between the tables made for an amazing DJ setup.

A few shot of Bella Sera. This place is amazing.

Look at the details of the tables. Oh, what a great idea to have candy apples for favors!

This is Dean's best man Greg giving his toast.

Following Greg was our Maid of honor, Diane.

Look at the amazing piping on the wedding cake. That had to take hours!

Elizabeth and her mother Mary.
This is a great "huge" shot of Dean and his mother Jackie.
Down with the danceing. I have to say Liz's mother can really get down.

Chris & Vicki - September 14th, 2008

Chris and Vicki held their reception at the Hyehold Resturant. This was my first reception at the Hyehold. . . The restaurant is wonderful. . . It is the perfect setting for that smaller size / family reception.

I didn't have a chance to grab a card form these two. . . They played during the cocktail hour.

After the introductions we went into our Best Man Sean's toast.

Following Sean was our Maid of Honor Hannah.

Last but not least, was Vicki's father Steve.

After Dinner we went into Chris and Vicki's first dance.

Chris and Vicki decided to to a combined parents dance. (I love the paper globes)

We then started off the night with some great dancing. . . followed by power outages . . . more dancing. . . more power outages. . . and more dancing. . . more outages.. haha. We were luck enough that the power didn't stay off to long. . . usually 10-20 seconds.
