I used Risen Entertainment for my wedding in October 2013. There were pros and cons:
Pros: You can't beat the price! Jeanine is very reasonable and was the lowest price we had found. She is not one to try and rip you off and since we were on an extremely tight budget, we went with her.
Accessible: Prior to the wedding, Jeanine was very accessible. If we wanted to add songs or make any changes, she was easy to get a hold of and talk things through with.
Cons: There were a few things that we really did not like-
1. My Dad had passed away when I was younger and we let Jeanine know of that situation. My brother was walking me down the isle and escorted my mom out when the wedding party was announced. We had established this the first time we had met and it was very clear. The day of the wedding when the wedding party was announced, my mom and brother were announced as "the parents of the bride." I was really upset and annoyed as was my family. It was a sensitive topic and it made it very awkward since many of the grooms side (family friends) didn't know what the situation was, it caused a lot of confusion and more or less, salt in the wound for me. That for me was a HUGE mistake!
2. We had given Jeanine a list of our must have songs. There were songs that weren't played but more importantly, our issue was the fact that Jeanine played songs that we didn't like...and sang to them!! We had communicated that we did not want a DJ that would be on the mic very much and she never ever mentioned she would be singing at our wedding. We were upset because a large majority of our guests commented on it with things such as, "we didn't know it was Karaoke night at your wedding."
3. The last thing that we did not like was the fact that her assistant, began dancing to Billy Jean on the dance floor. We communicated that we did not want a wedding where the DJ was providing ridiculous entertainment. We just wanted someone to play music. I wouldn't recommend Risen, unfortunately

RISEN ENTERTAINMENT responded with the following comments:

I appreciate any feedback and your comments I will always take seriously. When I do any party, sometimes the party takes on its own fun and joy with the guests you invite. I saw so many having fun and dancing, including you both. The ballad I sang was special dedication for the special people that you both are. But, yes, perhaps singing along with songs with the crowd can be unwelcome and for that I do regret you did not care for.
I did look over our final draft/itinerary with the names and after we both signed off on this, the oversight was indeed written 'parents of the bride', for which I read from these notes and made this horrible mistake. For this I am most distressed.
After 20 years and as many parties as I do each week, I strive to give every attention to detail, especially for my brides.
I will learn from this and thank you for bringing it to my attention.
