We booked a DJ through Big Day and were satisfied with how the night turned out. There wasn't much that could have gone wrong because we were required to fill out an information packet that had us list every song, dance, announcement we wanted. However, they are a pretty outdated company. We were reluctant to book with them after only watching a few videos and not being able to talk to any of the entertainers because the videos were from so long ago. I wish we could have met with them before but talking on the phone was better than nothing. Overall, the night went well but I would still be wary of booking without seeing newer material for the other entertainers.

We hired DJ Bryan Brunsell for our September 7th wedding. I gave him a list of songs per his request which would outline the first dances etc. I don't know if he lost the list, but the song for our cake cutting was wrong. I also quite specifically told him I enjoy country music but my fiance HATED it, so as a compromise ONLY play it during dinner no matter what people request. There were like 5 slow country songs playing in a row. Nobody was dancing. Also, I told him for the first dances, MAKE SURE we are on the dance floor already because the songs start immediately with no intro. Once again, this didn't happen. Also it really upset me that he cut our dances short. This happened with my husband and I, my father and I & my husband and his mother yet he played the 7 minute version of the Cha Cha slide. Our songs were all less than 3 minutes for a reason, and I really didn't want them cut short.

He did sing and play acoustic guitar for our cocktail hour though, and everybody said what a wonderful job he did. He was extremely polite though. Lots of mistakes, but he did a decent enough job.

Kim from Big Day was one of the first vendors I spoke with when starting to plan our wedding. I wasn't planning to have a videographer at that time, but Kim still helped me and answered general questions that I had. Well, 2 weeks before the wedding, I decided we did need a videographer. I called Kim and she set it up immediately. KIM is fantastic!

Aaron our videographer was very good. At times, we didn't even know he was there. We were very happy with the end result and are grateful to always have that video to cherish.

My husband picked out the videographer to record the ceremony and then to do guest interviews at the reception.

We had Jordon. He did a great job, he checked in with us during the reception to see if there was anyone we wanted to be sure we got which I really thought was just great! He was polite and funny. A pleasure to have around on our day.

Big Day Entertainment was great. We booked our photographer late because we originally were not going to use one. We had no problem finding one with big day. They gave us a list of the available photographers and where we could view samples of their work online. We chose Dino Bovo. He was very professional but also laid back which made everyone feel very comfortable. He got every shot that we wanted plus a ton more. Every moment that we want to remember is forever captured in photos and that is exactly what I wanted.

Big Day didn't do our photos for the wedding, but did our engagement photos.

We were in their system and were offered a promotional package, I won't go into the details, but in exchange for using our photos and a video for advertisement, they would give us a photo session, some free prints, and a discount on other orders.

The photo session went fine, the photographer was very professional and nice. HOWEVER, I did feel like we were being rushed through and felt that he wasn't interested in helping us find flattering poses -- almost all were turned to the side and I am a larger woman. The photos were okay, out of the 70 or so he took, we liked about 10... Again, though, the quality was fine, they just weren't very flattering.

The real trouble happened when I was ordering photos -- response was VERY slow. I submitted an order at the very beginning of January and received a response explaining that the person who normally handles the photos was out of town and I was given instructions on who to contact. I did so, and my phone calls were not returned.

It took OVER A MONTH to get my order processed, and by that point I went down to the Strip to pick them up myself rather than paying the shipping fee...

We used Kevin as a our DJ. He was extremely professional, dressed in a tuxedo, on time, equipment ready. We spoke several times before our big day, so I felt very comfortable using his service. During our cocktail hour he played live piano for our guests. We had our reception at Heinz Hall and it set the tone for a very classy reception. He played all the songs we requested and none of the songs we rejected. Great Guy!

We used Finesse which is a band that books through Big Day and couldn't have been happier. They were very professional on time, dressed very well, and above all sounded incredible. They had a male and female singers who had great voices and did many good oldies and new ones too. Did well with the request also.

I though Sean did good as our DJ. The dance floor was packed all night. We needed someone to fit in our budget and he was willing to work with us on price.

One of my biggest concerns for my wedding after the ceremony and reception location was the DJ. As a young couple, we wanted our party to be fun-filled and with friends and family that love to dance, we wanted a DJ that kept the party going. John was exactly that! From the very moment we talked on the phone to get a sense of what kind of music we liked (and did not), John got a great sense of what kind of couple we were and gave us the perfect blend of music for our younger friends, as well as our families. He made our day what we wanted it to be, including making two last minute changes the night before the wedding: playing the Penn State (our alma mater) fight song, and a song that was given as a wedding gift to us. He included both so seamlessly into the night that you would have thought we had planned them for months. John is professional, extremely kind and truly knows how to get a party started and keep it going. I know that everyone in our family had such a good time, and are all planning to work with John again for future events: birthday parties, reunions and hopefully some more weddings!

I would recommend this company to anyone for a beautiful day. The dj played for an hour longer than he had said he would so we could have music during our ceremony and dinner. He played a beautiful mix of fast and slow songs ranging from any era we wanted and DID NOT play the things we did not want. Even if the guests begged it had to be approved through us. It was THE BEST!

I had Big Day provide music for my ceremony and also a DJ for my reception. From the get-go, I was always in contact with a different person. One day one person was emailing me and the next day it was someone else saying that they hadn't received required paperwork etc. I felt bounced around and never knew who to contact with issues.
A trio was to provide the ceremony music, although it didn't appear to be the same 3 people featured as the trio on their website. While the music was nice, they played the wrong songs for the processional.
Despite all of that, I would definitely recommend DJ Kevin Howard for any piano music (cocktail hour) or reception music. He was wonderful and did exactly what we wanted and was so flexible. I can't say enough positive things about Kevin. He guided the reception without being intrusive or obnoxious, as I've seen some DJs do. He was a perfectly classy and fun DJ and I would definitely recommend him or use him again for any type of party.

Although we enjoyed working with BigDay, our photographer was a dud. She was rude and didn't take the pictures that I wanted. I gave her a list and on that day, I wasn't really thinking about the list. She had it and did not follow it.
