The Award Winning All Inclusive Wedding Package!

We know that wedding cost can fluctuate drastically and the stress of that can sometimes feel pretty overwhelming.

Since weddings are priced on a case by case basis we here at Modern Era Wedding are all too familiar with this stress.

But what if we decided to change that up a little bit?

What if our team found a way to make your wedding planning just a little bit smoother?

What if we decided to take all of the services and just put them into one all inclusive package that will handle every detail of your big day, from entertainment to decoration, documentation and coordination?

Well, this is exactly what we’ve decided to do.

If you are planning your wedding in Pittsburgh, DC, Maryland, Virginia, Miami, Tampa, or Orlando then we’ve got a special deal for you!

Award winning DJs, Photographers, Videographers, Photobooths, Lighting Design, Month of Coordination, Day of Coordination and Vendor selection all included in one single package of $10,000! Discounted from $13,345!

Booking these services through multiple companies could not only cause you headaches, but could cost you well over $15,000!

We are always looking for more ways to make your special day something with a little less stress and a little more love. Head over to our website and send us an email, we’ll set up a time for us to talk and get your wedding set up just the way you imagined it would be.

Modern Era Weddings Presents: La Hora Loca Wedding!

When we came upon the La Hora Loca wedding in 2016 at a bridal show in Florida we knew this was a wedding package our brides-to-be back home could no longer do without. For a year we strove to perfect this experience by creating the Pittsburgh Circus Arts Collaborative with the goal in mind to turn future weddings into masquerade masterpieces of Samba dancers, stilt-walkers, juggling and drums! Confetti cannons, glow wands and masks! It is with great appreciation to The Pittsburgh Samba Group, to Josh Mariana for his fantastic photography and congratulations to newlyweds Melissa and Anthony Caruso that I present to you our finished product. Our collaborative La Hora Loca wedding was a spectacular success!

La Hora Loca (The Crazy Hour) is the South American tradition reminiscent of Brazilian Carnaval and Mardi Gras. Only more condensed, personal. A miniature elaborate celebration – within your celebration…

We here at Modern Era Weddings with The Pittsburgh Circus Arts Collaborative offer La Hora Loca Wedding packages in traditional Latin Carnival style, Neon, Romani Circus and Traditional Circus style!

Interested in seeing if La Hora Loca is right for your wedding? Head over to our contact-us section and let us know that you want circus arts performers for your wedding!

La Hora Loca is what you call a moveable feast or a floating holiday making it perfect for any event you can think of! Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, corporate events, holiday parties, Quinceañeras, wakes, birthdays, anniversaries or, honestly, just about any celebration you can imagine is destined to become a La Hora Loca!

Imagine your celebration! Halfway through the dancing you hear the pounding of rhythmic drums as in storms a gaggle of Samba dancers, stilt walkers, drummers and jugglers. Masquerade Masks are passed out amongst the guests and confetti cannons fill the air with cascading colors!

Congratulations again to our newlyweds Melissa and Anthony Caruso and thank you again to Josh Mariana, The Pittsburgh Samba Group and our entire La Hora Loca team!

Lately I have been obsessed with lighting decor…

Lately I have been obsessed with lighting. Lighting for the wedding, lighting for the reception. I am, overall, simply illuminated with joy at the spectacle that has become what can almost be labeled as an archaic revival.

Many couples have chosen beautifully vibrant outdoor receptions with flowing and pouring streams of floating globes filled with specks of candle lit fires.

Some have made a spectacle from strings of Edison bulbs while others are trickling tapestries of Christmas lights mixed among the accentuating floral colors of their wedding.

Well, I have been tracking down pins for my Ceremony and Reception Lighting Board for several weeks now. Here are a few that stand out as they are indeed the most delightful of the bunch.


We here at Modern Era Weddings do strive to be the most up to date on wedding trends and often find ourselves talking to a bride that asks us, “Do you have those old fashioned lights? You know, the old timey ones that look like their from a hundred years ago?

These are the lights known as Edison Bulbs and they are the epitome of perfect ambient reception lighting. Whether strung as individuals from wires, wrapped as a bunch in a make shift chandelier or cascading across the canopy above – Edison Bulbs are what you’re looking for.

Now I’m going to head back over to Pinterest and take a look at other forms of unique and eccentric lighting for weddings. Specifically I think I’ll take a stroll through the skies, as we offer here at Modern Era Weddings the very novel product of dancing on the clouds – perhaps for the next wedding, perhaps even yours, we’ll be ready to also offer clouds lit from above for your dance floor.

Do you have any special lighting features that you would like to share with us? What have you come across that has been illuminating?
