Matthew and Lynda are those rare to find profesionals that enjoy what they do and the result is quality and success for our event.
Preparing for my wedding was stressful but every time I reach out to Matthew with questions or doubts he was very responsive and made me feel calm again.
Their customer service and manners were impeccable.
My wedding was everything I wished for and more in BIG PART because of Celebrations Event Productions. My family and friends are still getting back to me with wonderful comments and how good time they had at it and how impress they were with the versatility of Matthew. They also took care of our videography and I am looking forward to see what I am sure it will be only good quality for my memories to keep.

Matt and his wife, Lynda were wonderful! The up lighting, the GOBO, and the music was great! I noticed them right away when I went to a wedding expo at the Reef. I told my fiance at the time, how I loved Matt's voice and how he was performing. A few days later, I won a raffle and was so happy because I liked them from the beginning. We're very satisfied with all the services he provided. We met in the comfort of his and his wife's home to choose all of our songs and he was patient and very helpful in selecting the songs. I didn't realize how many songs are to be picked out. They also did our ceremony music and mic options were available. We also had a selection to choose from for our Spanish dancers. We would like to thank you for making our event extra special! I would definitely recommend Celebrations!

Matt was a great DJ and played the music we wanted and made the party. The day of the event was perfect, but up until that point he was a little difficult to work with. He is a little pushy, but if you stay strong he will definitely deliver. He was great for the price, but I am on the fence if I would recommend him, only because of how difficult he was to get a hold of and how he talked to me before the event. Regardless, you will get what you want, so you will be satisfied.

Celebrations Event Productions did such an amazing job with my wedding! My wedding was 3 months ago and I still have people telling me how fun and amazing it was. I owe that A LOT to Mathew, his wife and his company! They kept my wedding going! The dance floor was packed the whole time! Celebrations not only DJ'd my wedding but they also did the videography and captured every special moment. I honestly can't say enough about these services they truly know what they are doing. Thank you.

I recently used Celebrations Event Productions for my wedding a few months ago and I had the most amazing experience ever. Matt (celebrations event productions) kept my guest well entertained throughout the entire event. I received many positive feed about the his services. All of my quests loved the interaction games he had them play. The best part of the night was when Matt sang snoop's gin and juice. If anyone is looking for a DJ for a wedding I would definitely recommend Celebrations Events Productions.

Matthew was our DJ and did an awesome job!!! Everyone loved him! Everyone loved the games he played during dinner, it broke the ice for our guest to loosen up and have a good time. He also provided lighting' up lights, cake light candy bar light, and an awesome star light on the dance floor. Music was perfect and just what we asked for. We asked for some music he didn't have but he was able to get it when we met to discuss our music! He is very flexible and easy going! His wife Linda was also a big plus she took video of the wedding and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished video! They truly made the night amazing I wouldn't ask for anyone else! ;)

All of the wedding websites and magazines talk about what everyone will remember about your wedding. They say it's the venue and it's the party. Well I can definitely say that one of the biggest and most frequent compliments we have received about our wedding has been Matthew. To this day everyone talks about how great our DJ was and how he kept the party going. Even when the fire alarm on The Queen Mary went off in the middle of a song, he didn't miss a beat. He had a great feel for what would keep everyone dancing and before we knew it... it was the last song. I can't thank him enough for making our big day even better. I would recommend Matthew to anyone planning their wedding or any other special event!!

We met with Matthew Beaumont (aka Celebration DJ) twice before our wedding. He was the first vendor we met with, and the one we were most excited about.
As our wedding date drew closer, he did not respond to my emails (2 of them) and my fiance had to call him in order to verify last minute details. One of these details included confirming that Matthew would videotape our church ceremony.

On the day of our wedding, not only did Matthew not show up at the church, he didn't show up at the reception!! Our venue had to call him to remind him about our wedding. Our cocktail hour had no music, our "up lighting" which I was assured would be baby pink, was purple.. and 8 out of the 10 times I looked across the dance floor for Matthew, he was not present!!

DO NOT HIRE CELEBRATIONS or MATTHEW BEAUMONT for any occasion!

Celebrations Event Productions responded with the following comments:

The client changed the date of the wedding 3 weeks prior to the original date. I was booked already on the new date so I subcontracted another DJ to cover the event. Due to health problems the day before the wedding he was unable to attend the event or inform me. I received a call from the venue that the DJ had not shown up so I left my event in the hands of my assistant and arrived in time for the start of the reception. I played an extra hour at no charge and gave them a refund. As far as not being there when she looked up, I have no idea what she was talking about I as there all evening. The customer was unhappy with all of the other services as well and asked for a discount including the venue. We were NOT contracted to provide video services or a cocktail sound system.
