Testimonial - Jen & Brian

"Hi Jeremy,

While a more formal note is (at last) on its way to you, we also wanted to write with something that you can share with other brides and grooms who may be as lucky as we were to find you.

Our wedding day celebration exceeded our expectations, from start to finish. And this truly would not have been possible without you. From the very first (long!) phone call with Brian on from Massachusetts, you in Pennsylvania, and me in New York, we felt so comfortable (and relieved) that we found you. A penultimate professional, you very clearly described your philosophy and style - tasteful, elegant, FUN - and we knew we were putting ourselves - and our guests - in good hands. Throughout the planning process, you reinforced that first impression over and over again. You gave us room to shape the reception to reflect who we are and what we envisioned, but you also offered great feedback and recommendations in the places we got stuck. Your level of organization and regular communication gave us such great confidence, and we were so impressed by your willingness to touch base with the caterer, florist, photographers (so glad we could reunite you with the Sandersons!) to coordinate the evening. We loved how you and Heather greeted us as soon as we arrived, and then jumped right in to set the mood for our arriving guests. The cocktail and dinner hour was superb - actually the whole night was a fabulous mix of favorites - old and new - that had everyone dancing (My brother posted some very incriminating YouTube video of my dad's patented dance moves!) One example of your impressive attention to detail was your foresight to line up a second anniversary dance song, which was clearly necessary when we had couples still going strong after our selection had played through. Another was your read of the crowd at the end of the night and ability to make a call to send everyone home on a high - the spontaneous circle hug as we swayed and sang Piano Man was such a great way to go out. I can't tell you how many of our friends and family raved about the music and requested the playlist - we'd love to have it for ourselves if it's something you'll share. It was also such a bonus to be able to revisit the night with the great photos - you're a man of many talents - you posted on your blog. (We'd love copies of those too!) We will gladly sing your praises to anyone who will listen!

Thanks so much for being a part of our celebration, and for making us feel like you were glad to be there too!

Best wishes to you and Heather for a wonderful holiday season and continued success in 2011. You deserve it!"

Not sure where to start, but we will start with THANK YOU! The reception music was everything thing we wanted and more. Our guests are still talking about the acoustic covers that were played during dinner! When we started planning the wedding, the most important thing to us was that it was a great time for all of our guests, and that definitely happened since the dance floor was packed from the first through the last song! I think its also worth mentioning that EVERYONE danced, from our youngest guest (8 years old) to our oldest guest (90 years old)!!!!

A lot of our friends have already had their weddings, and when we talked about how we were able to log on to your website, listen to thousands of songs, select our "must plays" and set the timeline, they were jealous, as they should be since that was the EASIEST process.

Bill & Stacy - December 4th, 2010

Location: Jay Verno Studios

It's been a long time since I was at Jay Verno Studios. I can easily say this location is one of the most unique places in Pittsburgh to have a reception.
Their webpage is a little hard to understand how the venue flows. . . I'll do my best to describe the room lay out.

Below is where the cocktails take place. On the bar is on the far side of this picture.

From this view, the bar is where the blue lights are coming from. (left of the picture.)

From this picture, the bar is off to the right and the main ballroom is behind the black curtains you see on the left.

Different view of the bar and foyer area.

This is my favorite room. . . It really is not used but everyone walks past it to get to the restrooms.

Bill and Stacy's first dance.

Cake Ceremony was right after the first dance.
