After calling 5 other lighting companies - I was SO happy to find Gil Welsford at Sparks. He was awesome to work with and totally got my vision. I designed a custom lighting installation of over 40 glass Moravian star lights as our reception room centerpiece and he made that idea come to life. They also designed and made a custom chandelier for our outdoor/lounge space of reclaimed wood and edison lightbulbs - it was a perfect fit.

Super creative group, really responsive, and overall fun to work with!

Andrew was very flexible and made the day about us. He rolled with the punches and kept our guests dancing and partying all night. He is very easy to work with and has the best music selections if you don't know what songs to play. The mix of music was perfect and fit every generation. Andrew is very professional and fun to work with. Andrew also took two songs we sent him to make a special mix for our first dance which turned out amazing. Our wedding would not have been as much fun without Andrew. I would highly recommend him to anyone for any event.

I am happy to say that Sparks Entertainment is a new member of our design team. My company, The Upper Crust in New York City, has been providing catering and event coordination and design for going on 30 years.
Sparks' team was recently engaged to provide lighting, staging and video services for a rather complicated wedding. This was an outdoor wedding on private property. There were a total of five tents and the entire property to light. This was perhaps the most complicated wedding that we have ever executed. And they met the challenge with flying colors.
The dance tent was tremendous. I do not believe that we have ever provided a more exciting dance environment than the one they provided, including an overhead truss system, moving intelligent lighting, a large rear-projection screen and special effects.
It can be tricky bringing in a new team member to work with catering and decor companies that have been working together for years. They were a great addition and moved seamlessly into the flow of the event. In fact, they were liked by everyone because of their professionalism and accomodating manner.
And here is the real kicker. As noted, my company has been providing these services for many years and guess what? This was my wedding and, as you might imagine, my expectaions were set very high.
I could not have been more pleased. These guys are great.

Sparks Entertainment did lighting for our wedding last year. It was OUTSTANDING. We had a limited budget for decorations and we are so glad we invested in the lights. Their lighting design made the room look like a completely different space. Normally, it is a bare banquet hall with drab carpets and room separators. We were worried because we were hosting a pretty big wedding and were afraid of the way it would look in the boring room. They did purple uplighting on the columns and made the space look much bigger and incredibly elegant. They also lit the dance floor and got everyone in the mood to have a good time. They were timely, very responsive and had great staff for the day of. We didn't have to worry about anything. Couldn't have asked for a better lighting company.

I was referred to Andrew through some mutual friends and I can tell you, I was definitely impressed from the moment I contacted him. He is such a sweetheart, and such a joy to work with. But don't let the sweet part fool you....he was assertive in making sure our day went as smooth as possible and knew EXACTLY what we wanted.

The day of our wedding, there were a few...literally last second changes and he made sure those changes were handled immediately and with ease. He never stressed and if he did, there was definitely no signs of him stressing. No matter how big or small the changes, he made sure to accommodate us.

When we met with Andrew to go over our wedding day, he drove to us. We didn't have to leave the comfort of our own home for him. And let me tell you, we got married 2 hours away from home so every thing we did, consisted of us driving a long distance, and to have Andrew offer to come to us, was definitely a relief, and helped a ton!

There were a few things in particular that Andrew did for us that I will never forget, and am beyond grateful for...

During our initial meeting, I stressed how worried I was that the music wouldn't flow properly during the ceremony. I was at a wedding a few months before ours, and the bride and groom also had a DJ do the ceremony music, and the music just came to a complete, abrupt, stop. It sounded awful and was a little embarrassing. Anyway, Andrew reassured me that every thing would flow smoothly and it absolutely did! Whatever he did, made it sound beautiful! Every thing flowed SO nicely.

My parents divorced when I was young, and as a result, my little brother and I became best friends, and my mother found some one who treats her the way a woman should be treated. I wanted to do a special tribute to my brother, and my mother and step-father, and Andrew made it happen. He dedicated a song to my parents, and dedicated a special dance to just my brother and I. It meant so much to me!

At the venue we were married at, The Imperia in Somerset, New Jersey, my husband and I had a matre'd who was to take care of us all night and make sure we didn't have to worry about anything. She had her own agenda when it came to how we'd run the night and it just didn't match up with what Andrew and I had spoken about. This was the only issue Andrew spoke to me about, but I was so glad he did because I didn't want things done the matre'd's way. Andrew made sure to fix it, and it was done in the blink of an eye.

In addition to Andrew being a joy to work with...he MADE our wedding! I can't stand going to weddings where you only dance for an hour and the music stinks. There was no chicken dance, no YMCA (all per our request), just one awesome song after another! It kept every one on the dance floor until late hours, including the older crowd. No one wanted to leave! My grandmother even danced the night away. :) Andrew continued the music for an extra hour after our reception was over. Had the reception not cost as much as it did, we definitely would've asked Andrew to continue playing for at least another 2 hours. Our reception ended up being 6 hours long! I can't even stress how much fun we had! Literally every single person at our wedding raved about 3 things...1: The food. 2: The photographers. 3: The DJ. :)

Since our wedding, we've had people ask us to have a party and have Andrew DJ it. I think I might have to take them up on that offer...

I would absolutely, recommend Sparks Entertainment, to any one and everyone! Not only did we find an awesome DJ, we gained an awesome friend. THANK YOU, ANDREW, for making our day so insanely fun, and one to always remember!! :)
