As we started to plan my daughter’s wedding we visited all the bridal shops in Champaign/Urbana. The last one we visited was Elite Bridal. The staff was so friendly and helpful. When we walked out my daughter said, “ I am buying my dress here”, even though she hadn’t found a dress. So after the amazing service we got at Elite Bridal we decided to try Elite Entertainment for the limo, DJ and chairs. Everyone we worked with at Elite Entertainment lived up to our expectations. Everything was great!! Thanks Elite Entertainment

Our wedding reception was amazing! We got so many compliments on how great everything looked from the chair covers to the uplighting. Everything went exactly as planned and the DJ did a great job keeping the party going until the end. From the moment we met first met with Ryan I knew we were in good hands. Everyone at Elite is so helpful, friendly, and professional. I would recommend Elite to anyone!

We just had Elite Entertainment DJ our wedding and they did an amazing job! The DJ, Matt was very flexible and made sure we were on the same page the whole night. We had an interesting mix of people and he was able to please everyone with the music!
I also had 2 friends perform my first dance song. Matt was a huge help when they realized they forgot the keyboard. He instantly downloaded a karaoke version that just had the base, it turned out great!
I would highly recommend using this company for DJing, Ryan was wonderful to work with, I couldn't have been happier!

Elite Entertainment did an amazing job on our wedding. We used their DJ service, chair covers, up lighting and photo booth. The reception hall was unbelievably amazing and Elite set up and cleaned up and we didn't have to do a thing! The photo booth was awesome! I highly recommend. Our guests loved it and now we have pictures of everyone who attended. The DJ was wonderful. He played all of our requested songs and got everyone dancing. It was an all around amazing night. I also purchased my wedding dress from Elite Bridal and was extremely happy with the staff there as well. I highly recommend this company to anyone who is planning a wedding.

Elite Entertainment very easy to work with. They were always available to meet and easy to contact via phone and email. Ryan was very accommodating and ensured that all the details were planned to a T for the day of my wedding. We got our chairs, up lighting, limo, and DJ service through them and were happy with everything we got. The D.J. played all the songs we requested and kept the reception going with music, and kept to the detailed plan we had laid out ahead of time. You will not be disappointed with their services.

We had a great experience with Elite Entertainment.

We were very pleased with the DJ services provided. They were receptive to our requests and music tastes. Our DJ did a great job of keeping people out on the dance floor throughout the night.

We also rented chair covers for our venue and they looked wonderful, adding a great touch to our reception.

Overall we had a very positive experience with Elite Entertainment. They were professional throughout our planning process and on the day of our wedding. It was very comforting to know they were working behind the scenes and helping to make our day one to remember!

We used Elite for our table cloths, chair covers, uplighting, and DJ. They have a lot of experience and know how to make your event perfect. We worked with Ryan and he is very friendly and professional. He was always very prompt on getting back to us with any questions or concerns we had. Our DJ Matt was amazing as well. We had a unique situation, I am American and my husband is Indian so we wanted to incorporate both music from both of out cultures. Matt was able to blend both types very well and our dance floor was full all night! Elite did and absolutely amazing job! Everything was perfect! We could not have asked for anything better. We would highly recommend them and would definitely use them again if we have another event!

We used Elite Entertainment for our DJ, chairs, lighting and backdrop for our head table at our wedding. I cannot recommend them enough; Ryan was extremely professional and helpful throughout the process, and everything looked exactly as we hoped it would the day of (if not better!). There were absolutely no problems with anything, and it was great not to have to worry about things going wrong! The DJ played only what we wanted him to, and the recommendations Ryan made for lighting/chairs/backdrops were perfect!

Elite Entertainment was amazing to work with. Ryan worked with us via email, phone calls, and in person. I never once had any issues during the whole planning process. Having an onsite showroom helped us narrow down choices so much. We ended up getting our DJ services, uplighting, chair covers, linens, and projector screen through them. Our DJ, Jeff, was wonderful. He always consulted me before anything happened at the wedding (when dances were going to happen, if we were ready to cut the cake, etc.). We did have a slight issue with a few guest asking to turn the music up (some people may have had a few too many cocktails), but as soon as my husband went up to the booth, Jeff immediately turned it back to the normal volume and reassured us that the only people he would listen to would be him or "the bride". I'm so thankful we went with the best that Champaign Urbana offers. Book early- they fill up, and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!

He is very knowledgeable and professional--it was great working with him. Our DJ was Jeff and he was exactly what we were looking for: not over-the-top but was able to get people on the dance floor and having fun.

Ryan and Elite Entertainment was nothing but WONDERFUL!! Ryan met with us and discussed all of our options. He even showed us, before we made decisions, how everything would look. Throughout the whole time working with Elite Entertainment, we always felt that Ryan and everyone was listening to what we wanted and/or described. They never made us feel like our idea wasn't going to look good. If we did have trouble with an idea that we had created, Ryan would show was some other ideas that might interest us. I would STRONGLY suggest Ryan and Elite Entertainment. AMAZING!

I cannot say enough positive things about Ryan and his team at Elite Entertainment. My only regret is that I did not use more of their services. I used Elite Entertainment for chair cover rental with sash. Ryan met with us and helped us determine the right colors and materials. He took time to call and email throughout the months leading to our wedding and his team arrived, set up, and took down without any notice from anyone. The chair covers truly made our reception an elegant affair.
Brides and Grooms in Central Illinois book them. For everything. Book early. You won't regret it.

AWESOME! I planned my wedding from 200 miles away and Ryan was nothing but incredibly helpful! Any time I sent an email I would get a response so quickly it was unbelievable. The communications were nothing but helpful, clear, and friendly! Also when I would randomly get the time to go to our wedding location I would email Ryan to set up an appointment and they were always able to accomidate us. As for our wedding, their DJ and Lighting services were incredible! Our DJ, Kai, was friendly, creative, and made our reception quite a party to remember. Our guests had so much fun and I recieved so many compliments about how fantastic the music was. We also utilized the up lighting and WOW did it set the mood in the room! The up lighting added that special touch to dress the evening up. All of their services were cost effective and simply perfection! If anyone has any sort of event, not just a wedding, I would recommend Elite Entertainment to them!

AMAZING!!! Elite Entertainment was absolutely fabulous to work with for our reception. They get very involved in your wedding "vision" which I think is very important and helped out a lot. The music, introductions, and speeches were timed perfect. We also chose to do uplighting and have a lighted monogram in the background. When we went in for our first meeting with Ryan he set up a demo reception with our color lighting and linens so we could visualize it. The lighted monogram looked amazing too! I don't think that anyone else in this area does anything like that. Elite obviously puts so much thought into everything and is not a "cookie-cutter" DJ service. Ryan was even nice enough to give us other vendor suggestions. I highly recommend Elite Entertainment to anyone who wants a fun and flawless wedding.

Ryan and his crew did a fantastic job with our wedding. From the excellent DJ service to the linens and chair covers, our reception was nothing short of amazing! We also had the room draped with white fabric which really made the pink uplighting shine! This was the first time that Elite has done something like that and we were excited to be the first. We couldn't have been any happier with the way our special day turned out. I highly recommend Elite to anyone who is even thinking about getting married in Central Illinois.

Ryan at Elite Entertainment was absolutely amazing. I can't say enough. Not only was he extremely professional throughout the entire process - our guests had such an amazing time because he really knew how to handle the reception and played music that everyone could enjoy and dance to. Also, the uplighting and monogram were absolutely beautiful - exactly how we had pictured it!

During the initial meetings, I immediately knew we would be working with Elite Entertainment. They are extremely professional, super creative, and have a huge passion for what they do. They made the entire process from start to finish extremely easy. I felt like I could leave the Itinerary of the Reception in their hands and the day of the event, they handled it so well - I never felt like I didn't know what was going on - they were always one step ahead of us.

Again I can't say enough - I recommend everyone to go through Elite Entertainment - they truly are the best and that's what you want and need for the most important day of your life!

Ryan was very helpful and had a lot of ideas to add to our reception details. He helped us decide what might look good as far as table coverings and was full of ideas for music selections. At the final meeting a few minor details were still needing decisions and we were at the point of having no more ideas left, Ryan was quick to step in and give us some thought and ideas to choose from which was perfect. The night was wonderful and the room looked beautiful and everyone had a great time dancing! After the event we received so many comments on how beautiful the room looked and how much fun everyone had!

This company is wonderful! For my wedding, I use the DJ service, uplighting, backdrop with monogram, and projector and screen to show our slide show. I was impressed with everything! We had sooooo many compliments from our guests on how fun the music was and how gorgeous the room looked. I could not have been happier! Thank you ELITE! You made our wedding reception so memorable!!!

I used Elite for DJ, lighting, and chair covers for my wedding. They totally transformed my room and it was beautiful. I have people commenting my parents and I on how nice the wedding was. The DJ service was fantastic! He was outgoing and everyone had fun dancing. I had younger people tell me it was the best wedding they have ever been to. I would definately recommend Elite to other brides! They helped make my wedding unforgetable!

My husband and I used Elite Entertainment for our DJ, linens, chair covers, and much more. We more more than pleased with the way the room looked and we were lucky enough to have Ryan as our DJ- he was excellent. Throughout the planning process, he was easy to work work, flexible (we lived in AZ at the time so much of our communication was done via email and family members in the IL area), and very accommodating. When we actually had a chance to stop in to the office, Ryan had a mock room set up with our colors, what the chair covers would look like, etc.

As an overwhelemed bride, it was nice to actually SEE what stuff looked like instead of just going off of pictures or what someone told me. At the actual reception, we asked Ryan to be laid back and while still being professional, the freedom to joke around with the audience- and he did just that. It was a nice balance of professionalism and being personable.


We have been to 2 weddings since our own with Elite as the DJ service- Ryan being the DJ at one, and another gentleman at the other- and even as a guest as someone else's wedding, we noticed the professionalism and just overall great quality of the company.

There is much more to say about Elite- bottom line, you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I chose Elite Entertainment for our wedding. We used their DJ, lighting and linen services. From the beginning of our wedding planning Elite Entertainment was so easy to work with. They helped us through each decision and made the planning so easy. Our reception was so beautiful with the lighting and linens (chair covers, sashes and table runners). The DJ was great and played everything we asked (and left out the songs we didnt want played). Guests of all ages had a blast! We would recommened to all friends and family.

We definitely recommend using Elite Entertainment. They provided our DJ service along with amazing lighting for our unique building. Ryan was great to work with during the whole planning process. He went out of his way to show us exactly what the uplighting would look like and he had many ideas and suggestions for things we weren’t sure about. Our DJ did a wonderful job of having the reception flow smoothly and keeping everyone entertained the whole night. We were so happy we used Elite Entertainment.

Brides--planning a wedding involves hours of stress and hundreds of decisions--but it is really your vendors who are responsible for seeing your dream wedding through. Hands down, Elite DJ can be trusted to execute your reception with perfection.

My experience with Elite was a million percent positive, with outstanding, prompt customer service throughout the entire planning process and flawless delivery at the reception. The guests are still raving about how much fun they had at our wedding reception and specifically how great the DJ was. Ryan was professional and did an awesome job keeping the flow of the night, allowing the groom and I to be able to sit back and enjoy the show! They adapted the music to the type of people out on the dance floor, keeping the early birds happy while they were dancing after dinner, and the late nighters going til the reception hall turned on the lights--all while steering clear of my picky No-No list. I'm telling you, there's nothing that kills the fun more than a DJ that doesn't play the songs the dancers are enjoying--and you would never have to worry about that happening with Elite!

We also used Elite for custom lighting and monogram. They did an excellent job helping me choose colors and worked with me to come up with an awesome custom monogram. The lights absolutely made the reception! I highly recommend using uplighting and a custom monogram to really WOW your guests!

Hands down, your entertainment can make or break your reception--Elite DJ can absolutely be trusted to give you the time of your life and make your night carefree and FUN!!!

Go with Elite DJ--as far as I am concerned, there isn't even a decision here. If you want to be positive your guests have a blast (and you can actually relax and enjoy yourself) you can rely on Elite to exceed your expectations!

Initially we were not going to use a DJ for our wedding reception. A few weeks before the event we changed our minds, and we were so glad we did. Having Elite Entertainment DJ the reception kept everything organized and running smoothly. They paid attention to the mood of the guests and matched music accordingly.
Everyone we worked with was pleasant, easy to communicate with and professional. Using Elite Entertainment was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We were very impressed and we highly recommend them

We wanted to thank elite entertainment for making our wedding reception unforgettable. The up lighting and our monogram made our regular room look absolutely amazing! It was like walking into a completely different room the night of the reception. We were pleased at how easy you made everything for us. We didn't have to worry at all the week of the wedding! All of our wedding guests commented on how beautiful the room looked and what an awesome job the DJ did. We have recommended you to all of our friends. We would also like to thank you for the before and after pictures.

We had the pleasure of working with Ryan and his staff from Elite Entertainment for our wedding. We rented chair coverings, uplighting, and had a personalized monogram above our wedding party table. We had so many compliments from our guests, staff at the venue, and even complete strangers who happened to be at the venue. I can't think of any thing bad to say about the service we received. From day one, Elite entertainment had amazing communication and a courteous professional approach. The quality is five star and have no regrets about enhancing the aesthetics of our wedding reception. We highly recommend working with Elite Entertainment.

Ryan of Elite does an awesome job! The level of professionalism he exhibits makes you feel really comfortable, because you know there will be no "loose ends" on the big day. He is very easy to get ahold of and responded almost immediately to all of our emails. We also did a lighting package with Elite and chair covers. It was nice to have all this with one vendor which made planning so much easier. The lighting truly made our reception beautiful. We had so many comments on how awesome the up-lighting looked. The DJ was perfect, playing exactly what we wanted and handling requests from our guests as well. We don't have one bad thing to say about any of Elite's services. We highly recommend Elite Entertainment!

Elite Entertainment is exactly that…”Elite!!”

They provided us with exquisite linens and chair covers to make our Dream Wedding Come true. It was a vision beyond visions.
My husband Patrick and I felt so proud to entertain our guests in such a beautiful décor of warm up lighting and friendly atmosphere all by Ryan and his team of professionals. It was done with such class and elegance.
We painted our picture of what we wanted and expected and Ryan delivered exactly our request. We put 100% trust in him and he came through for us.

Our music was fun, entertaining and kept our guest on the floor all night long.

We couldn’t have chosen a better vendor than we did with Ryan and Elite Entertainment.

Receiving our CD of our top music requests from Ryan a week or so later was just the icing on the cake. He helped us to create memories that night that we can cherish forever!!!

Thank you Ryan!!

Elite Entertainment did our chair covers, lighting, monogram and Ryan was our DJ. Everything they provide is amazing. The lighting totally transforms the look of your reception. The chair covers give the room a polished look and the monogram on the dance floor was a really cool addition to the lighting. His DJ services were also excellent, he played everything we asked him too. Ryan was very easy to work with. I would, without a doubt, recommend Elite to anyone who is thinking about getting married.

We used Elite Entertainment for our DJ, reception lighting, and linens (table cloths and chair covers). Ryan also helped us select a monogram and put together out photo montage to be displayed during the reception. My husband and I could not believe how Ryan and his crew were able to transform our reception hall into exactly what we wanted. I was actually able to enjoy the week before the wedding AND the reception thanks to Elite. Anytime I had a question or an additional idea, I could email or call Ryan, and get a response very quickly. Elite Entertainment was the most professional and easiest to work with out of all the vendors I used for our wedding reception. They helped make our reception something everyone could enjoy and remember. People are STILL talking about how great our reception was.

Elite Entertainment was great to work with. My husband and I both enjoy contra dancing, and many of our friends enjoy swing dancing, and Ryan, our DJ, was willing to work with us so that we could have both of those things! He was not at all obnoxious like some DJs, and played all the songs that we wanted and none of the songs that we did not want (and we had quite an extensive do not play list). All the special songs were in the right order and right on time. He was very professional and really cared about making sure our reception was just the way we wanted it.

They also provided the chairs and tablecloths for our reception. We went with the Chiavari chairs. The reception hall looked amazing and elegant! I highly recommend the Chiavari chairs. They are much nicer than chair covers and are the same price.

While Elite Entertainment is a little expensive for central Illinois, you get what you pay for, and it is still much less expensive than a Chicago reception. If you are having a wedding in the Urbana-Champaign area, I would highly recommend them.

Elite Entertainment provided us with uplighting, mongram, chair covers, and DJ service. Ryan worked with us through email and even met us at our reception location to discuss our reception. Our emails were answered within 24 hours. Ryan and his team worked with us on the design process of our monogram. We were able to provide examples and a vision. Our monogram turned out better than we could ever have expected. Ryan did a great job DJing our reception. He played a variety of music that kept our guests on the floor all night! The best thing about Elite Entertainment is we did not have to worry about the order or schedule of events at the reception, Ryan was in charge of that and made it a fun and stress free day for us. Thank you for helping make our wedding day fantastic. Our reception room looked amazing and your DJing was exceptional!

This DJ was very nice and professional. He does have a lot of experience in this business and I trusted him with being able to play some specific songs that meant a lot to me and my husband at our wedding reception. Although most of them were played, some of the milestone song selections ( e.g. the wedding party entrance ) were not the songs we had asked for. My husband and I feel that if for some reason they were not available to download, then the DJ should have notified us prior to the actual reception. There was obviously some kind of lack of communication and I wasn't pleased with that, but for the most part the service was very good.

The D.J. was one of the worst I have ever experienced. Seemed like he was in his own little world. He screwed up both the introduction for the wedding party and the announcement for the slide show. He refused to play some songs we requested and picked some of the worst music and the most inopportune times. He simply did not listen and it seemed like he was both nervous and uninterested.
