Ambassador Banquet Conference Center Erie PA ~ Maura and Joe

Maura and Joe are a very sweet, happy couple. The pair came through many obstacles to be together and were so excited to become husband and wife. The couple planned for a traditional wedding with all the trimmings- a beautiful church, venue, with gorgeous flowers, cake, and one of Pittsburgh’s best live bands to perform at their reception. Dreamscape played their favorite tunes and encouraged all their guests to get out on the dance floor at the Ambassador Center. The bride and groom could not have asked for more, their day was just as they imagined!

The bride was a real beauty. With porcelain skin, natural makeup, and a swept up hair do, she must have taken the everyone’s breath away! Her off the shoulder wedding dress was covered in lace and her skirt was made of soft tulle. Her veil was pinned in the back and we love that she also wore a pretty headband.

Their ceremony took place at the St. George Catholic Church. Friends and family watched as the bride and groom exchanged rings and vows. The church was modestly decorated with two large flower arrangements at the altar and clusters of roses adorned the aisle.

Their photographer, Rachel Lusky, took wonderful pictures of the bride and groom throughout their day. The relief and emotion was captured so well in this photo below. You did it! You’re married and now it’s time to party!

THANK YOU, John!  The reception was fantastic with Tammi and Dreamscape!  I told Tammi we had dancers, but I was amazed that no one sat down – the dance floor was full all night long!  And the fact that the band  all work so well together just made the evening flow perfectly.  It was a beautiful night! – Mother of the Bride.

Navy and coral are not two colors you see often at weddings! Which is a shame, because the colors certainly go together very well. We love the pop of coral against the bridesmaids cool blue dresses. We also love that while each dress was short in length (easy for dancing!), the styles were different. Way to go for personal style and comfort! These ladies look great!

The Ambassador Center looked so gorgeous! The couple decorated the space with white tablecloths, navy napkins, and coral floral arrangements. Sparkly chandeliers and elegant lighting added to the ambiance. A large dance floor was in view of every table with plenty of room to boogie down to Dreamscape band.

Let’s take a closer look at the floral arrangements. On a bed of greenery, the coral and pink roses and daises really looked popped! Alburn Florist did a wonderful job! Not to mention the bouquets- all creations of beauty.

Ambassador Center Pittsburgh Wedding Bride and Groom Dancing

For their first dance the bride and groom chose a Beatles song- “Here, There, and Everywhere.” They asked Dreamscape to play a CD recording. The bride then danced with her father to “I Loved Her First”, performed live by the band. There was not a dry eye in the room!

The wedding cake was simple and sweet. White, with a blue satin trim, and a crown of roses on top. The couple ordered their cake from Cindy’s Let Them Eat Cake. After all the guests had finished their entrees, cake was served, and the party began.

Dreamscape read the crowd and played songs to keep everyone on the dance floor. The band was rocking, guests of all ages loved the beat, loved the music. The bride and groom asked the band to play some classic rock as well as other popular party hits.

Nemacolin Woodlands Wedding Pittsburgh PA ~ Ryan and Jorjetta

Ryan and Jorjetta are a beautiful couple. The couple held their wedding at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort with an outdoor ceremony, grand ballroom reception, and live music. John Parker Band, a top Pittsburgh wedding band, was a part of their special day. The newlyweds incorporated their Greek and Bulgarian customs into the celebration, with the help of John Parker to play all the right music.

The ballroom was spacious, plenty of room to have a good party! The bride and groom danced to “All of Me” for their first dance. Next, the groom chose a song for his bride- “Gorchivo Vino”. Right after the song ended John Parker Band announced that it was time to join in on a traditional Greek dance!

John Parker Band first explained, and then led, the breaking of the bread tradition as guests were seated. The mother of the groom and bride took part in holding and feeding the bride and groom a piece of the bread. Then, the best man had to break the bread in half over their heads, symbolizing who would be the bread winner and big spender of the family! John Parker Band was happy to be a part of the fun tradition. Guests were treated to a sit down dinner as toasts began from various family members. Soon the bride would dance with her father to “Daddy’s Angel” and the groom with his mother to “The First Lady In My Life”.

Nemacolin Woodlands Pittsburgh Wedding Groom and Mother Dance

The party really got rocking with some Bulgarian music. The bride and groom knew how important it was to their family to play familiar music. The band was able to play many of the songs they requested & DeeJay all the rest. Another Greek tradition is the money dance, which everyone danced and cheered, tossing money around. Doesn’t that look like a blast? That’s a great shot below of everyone having a good time!

“The band did a wonderful job! The night was a big hit. Everyone was very impressed with the professionalism of the band and the quality of the entertainment John and his group provided.” -Groom

Nemacolin Woodlands Pittsburgh Wedding Money Dance

The newlyweds had a huge list of songs for John Parker Band to play. Many of their choices were top party hits from today with a mixture of classics, such as “Twist and Shout” and “Summer of 69”. There was never a dull moment at this wedding and there was something for everyone to enjoy, including a complete fireworks display and an after party with John Parker playing DJ music!

Truly a man of style, the groom looked the part in his gray suit. He must have been anxious to perform with City Heat – (which he did) later at the reception!

Guests were treated to a sit down dinner and listened to toasts before the bride changed into a different dress- much easier to dance in! She danced with her groom to “Everything” for their first dance.  The groom and his mother danced to “My Wish”. And a special song was played by City Heat for the bride to dance with her father to “I Loved Her First”. What a tear jerker!

The band had the pleasure of announcing a special surprise for the groom. A grooms cake was made for him in the shape of a Les Paul guitar. The groom had no idea the bride had this in store for him! To make the moment even more memorable, City Heat played a recording of “Over the Rainbow”. How incredible is that guitar cake!

The couple requested a few songs, such as “Superstition” and “My Girl”. They also went through the band’s extensive song list to pick out more tunes they knew everyone would enjoy. City Heat was able to deliver and rocked the house, with the help of the groom and his groomsmen!

Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh Wedding~ Molly and Andy

Molly and Andy had a classy wedding celebration. The Hotel Monaco in Pittsburgh was the perfect fit for their ceremony, outdoor cocktail hour, and reception. Having every part of your wedding at the same location is so convenient, and easy, for friends and family! Especially when the venue is as beautiful as the Hotel Monaco. With high ceilings, retro carpeting, and a large dance floor, there was nothing more the couple could have asked for. Except- an awesome live band!

The couple knew they wanted to have a great party and chose a the best Pittsburgh Wedding band to perform at their reception; John Parker Band. The band played top hits and made their reception one memorable night!

Hotel Monaco-Pittsburgh-Wedding-Bride-Groom-Photos

Their photographer, Christina Montemurro, took advantage of the many photo opportunities the venue had to offer. There were plenty of spots for beautiful photos indoors and outdoors. The bride and groom opted to do a first look before their ceremony. What a special moment, seeing each other in their finest- the bride in her white dress and the groom in his suit. We adore how lovingly looked at one another in the photo above.

Hotel Monaco-Pittsburgh-Wedding-Beautiful-Bride

The bride’s gown was sleek and elegant. Her dress had a high neckline, a beaded belt, and pleated skirt. Her makeup made her eyes pop and her smooth up-do held her veil in place. What a great dress to dance in too, later in the night!

Hotel Monaco-Pittsburgh-Wedding-Bride-Bouquet

The bride’s bouquet had purple, gold, and white flowers. It was absolutely stunning and was put together by florist, My Garden Floral. If you look closely, you can even see some fruit in the mix! How unique.

We love this photo of the groom as he waited to see his bride. The black and white curtains were a cool backdrop for this photo. Christina Montemurro and her team sure knew how use backdrops and lighting to their advantage! Just wait till you see the photos taken of John Parker Band at the reception.

Hotel Monaco-Pittsburgh-Wedding-Bridal-Court

We love when a bride allows her bridesmaids the freedom to chose their style of dress. Wearing the same shade of purple, the girls looked lovely, some wearing strapless, one shoulder, and or a V-neck. They all carried bunches of white roses and were so pretty! There’s no doubt that these ladies would have a blast at the reception- short dresses are so fun to dance in!

Even though the groom saw his bride before the ceremony, he looked just as happy and amazed her as he watched his bride walk down the aisle.

The bride and her father danced to “I Loved Her First” and the groom with his mother to “My Wish”. The couple also had a few specialty dances up their sleeve- a Croatian dance called the kolo, which was important to the bride’s mother and aunts. It was quite the show! They also requested some popular songs for the band to play, such as “Uptown Funk”, “Shut Up and Dance”, and Happy”.
