How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We have the ability to read the crowd from extensive years of DJing at weddings and in the night life entertainment industry.

Armond and his staff were absolutely fantastic, professional, and easy to work with. My husband and I have a very busy schedule and Armond was very accommodating and flexible with the times we had to talk. He also had us fill out forms online about songs we liked and didn't like, as well as suggestions that made everything so EASY and CONVENIENT. We have heard nothing about AWESOME feedback from our guests at the wedding and several friends were interested in using them for weddings as well. Our dance floor was bumping all night and no one ever left the dance floor- it was exactly what we asked for when we booked them!

I do not have anything negative to say about Elevated Event Design. We hired them to provide a photobooth for our wedding. The photo-booth was through a different company, but they must work hand-in-hand with Elevated Event Design. Working with Armond was great. He was very easy to get a hold of. The gentleman that worked our event, Alex, was also great. All our guests enjoyed him.

Thank you!!!!

I got purple uplighting for my wedding reception and they absolutely transformed the room! It wasn't overkill, just enough to give the room a glow and make it look absolutely magical. Armond was a pleasure to work with! Alsway prompt in replies and I didn't have anything to worry about the day of b/c he coordinated diurectly with the hotel. The lighting was beautiful and the incredibly affordable especially compared to other companies providing uplighting.

Service was great. Very professional, courteous, and punctual. Armond and his staff went above and beyond what was expected and I couldn't have asked for a better job. All of the music we requested was played and he did a amazing job at entertaining the whole event. Uplighting gave a really great atmosphere for the night. I will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a amazing wedding service. Thank you again!

We booked a photo booth from Elevated Event Design for our wedding reception. I was worried about the quality of the photo booth and it was excellent! The booth was new and technologically advanced. We got a copy of every picture strip that was taken from of guests! I was always able to contact someone from the company when I had questions. I would highly recommend Elevated Event!

We had Elevated Events Dj at our wedding. We were able to tailor our services to be exactly what we wanted. The flow of the music, the DJ, the whole planning experience was awesome. We had so many people tell us it was the best wedding they have ever attended. The DJ knew exactly what to play when to keep the crowd going. We couldn't have asked for a better event. Thank you so much for making our wedding better than we ever imagined!!!

I really felt good about Armond at first he was always very professional and responsive to everything, he also has very good reviews. So maybe I just had a fluke of a bad experience. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
As I said Armond always answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. He was fairly flexible with some of my request (wedding party individual entrance songs etc). However during the final planning process I did feel a little pushed to do things how he wanted them to be. "Everyone cuts the cake at the beginning I've done tons of weddings". Well I am not everyone and had more of a traditional wedding. However I have heard many DJs are like this and want it done how they want it done, just don't budge.

Then the reception came. There was an entrance mishap with my flower girl which was partially my fault for not assigning someone to walk her in, but she ended up walking in with people she didn't know and she was not announced. I also felt rushed by Armond to get the first dances going and done when I was walking around greeting my guests.

Then came the tragedy..... My husband and I completed our dance gracefully and I was off to dance with my dad. My husband went around the room telling everyone to listen to this special song I had picked for my daddy. Only when the song was played it was a DJ cut of the song with most of the words cut out and about 30 seconds long. I and most of my guests were baffled, especially the ones who knew the special relationship I have with my father. I want to say this was an honest mistake and it wasn't a tactic just to get the "first dances done", but I guess I will never know. Regardless, it was just a horrible moment to ruin that I will never get back, and with that said I feel I was generous in my rating.
Many of my wedding party also complained about the DJ (after of course) .. but the reception music seemed fine to me, but I guess I was on a high.

Armond was recommended by another DJ that was unavailable on our wedding date. That DJ used Armond for his own wedding a few months prior. Since I trusted that DJ, I decided to book with Elevated Event Design.

Armond provided the uplighting and music at our reception. He played all of the songs that we requested. Prior to our wedding, he did not have a few of the songs we wanted in his personal library. He made sure to purchase these songs before the reception took place.

My only minor complaint would be Armond's ability to adapt to our venue. Our reception was not in a typical ballroom. It instead took place in a divided space with multiple rooms. I knew this was the one thing I disliked about the venue when I booked it. Nevertheless, it was not enough to deter me from having our reception there.

Armond tried his best to notify our guests when special events were about to occur (first dance, cake cutting, etc). However, very few people heard these announcements in the main dining room. Due to this, it was a challenge to round up the single men and women for our bouquet and garter tosses. To be honest, I do not know how Armond could have handled this better. Perhaps he could have taken a microphone into the main room and announced the tosses five minutes before they took place. This may have lead to more of our guests participating in these traditional events.
