Tell me a little bit about your business!
We love being a wedding and events company in Pittsburgh. The best city, the best clients, and an insanely talented staff make us 2ND II NONE.
We are the standard for weddings. An unrivaled passion for people and a ridiculous work ethic have allowed us to be the wedding company of choice for the last 20 years. Thank you for your faith in our team and for sharing so many wonderful moments in your lives.
Through our five major services – DJ entertainment, photography, videography, photobooths, and decorative lighting – our mission is to ensure the most memorable and fulfilling events for our clients and their celebrations.
What makes your work unique?
Our clients. People are remarkable. Getting the chance to know a couple, to understand their needs, to value their concerns and to help them organize this experience into something unforgettable – it’s such a honor!!
They share with us their families, their friends, all of the qualities that define them…these relationships are the fundamental ingredients to making something extraordinary.
What is your ideal client like?
We love working with people that walk to the beat of their own drum. Do it for the ‘Gram! Nobody wants to remember their wedding day as being “good enough” or thinking “we made it through.” And they certainly don’t want their guests feeling their wedding day – the moment of all moments – was average at best.
We embrace folks that have big ideas and we love putting a plan together. The details matter. The talent matters. Take the rules and throw them out the window. Write your own script and make it your way.
How do you get to know a couple’s taste in music?
The power and influence of music is undeniable and at events, the programming sets the tone for the entire guest experience. We love how a song can instantly trigger a feeling and emotion or take you away to an exact moment and memory. These events are sentimental gatherings of our clients’ families and friends, people that have been with them sometimes their entire lives. The requests become the foundation of your party. We work closely with our clients to understand the music they love, the songs they want to share and the tracks they want us to avoid. All great wedding soundtracks start with our client’s decisions. We’re happy to offer suggestions to help compliment their style and we always use our experience to help support their vision and atmosphere.
How do you motivate guests to get on the dance floor?
We do what all DJs would do – play the YMCA, right? 😉
We are known for being a more involved entertainment service when it comes to your wedding. If you heard about 2ND II NONE from a friend or family member, it’s probably because that person spent the night on the dance floor at one of our past events.
Our relationships we build with our clients make all the difference. They understand their family and friends more then we ever could. They know who their wildest guests are going to be and what folks would prefer to have their space. Our goal is to match the right music with the right moments and help the people that love to have fun get comfortable with becoming part of the night.
How would you describe your emcee style?
Weddings are once in a lifetime! Each of our events demand special care and attention to detail. Each client, every moment – it all requires careful thought and planning.
After the countless hours a couple puts into their event, each wedding takes on a life of its own. The decorations, the vendors, the venue, the guests…it becomes its own living, breathing moment in time. The anticipation, the anxiety, the excitement…there are so many emotions that are packed into the day, a day we all get to experience differently because all of us play a unique and separate role for the couple. As the wedding plays out, the energy is forever changing. Our emcees can recognize these moments, match the personality and tone, and be the perfect compliment to your ever after.
