We are so glad we went with Unique Events for our DJ Travis Hempstead. To be honest, we were a little hesitant at first because of the cost. I can say without a doubt it was worth every penny. My husband and I thought, why would you invite over 300 people and skimp on a DJ. It is true that the DJ can make or break your wedding reception and dance. We wanted someone to keep the reception and dance running smoothly. Travis was very confident and aware on how we wanted the evening to flow. We were able to visit with friends and family and not worry what should happen next. The music was perfect!!!!! Travis kept the dance floor full the entire evening. All ages danced the night away. One of our favorite thing about Travis was how he checked on us and the wedding party throughout the night. Travis wanted to make sure everything was going as we hoped. We got some great photos and everyone is still talking about how wondferful the evening went.

We used Unique Events for our DJ, photo booth, up lighting and floral. The DJ was awesome. They picked the perfect person for us. He was helpful and very fun. He really made our reception perfect! The photo booth was a hit. It was busy all night and we get a USB drive with all the pictures taken so we can see everyone's, which is awesome. The up lighting really brought our reception hall together, it was beautiful. Our floral was also beautiful. I gave them an idea of what I wanted and they definitely delivered!

We used Unique Events for our reception festivities. They were amazing and easy to plan with from the start. We used their DJ, lighting, flowers, table linens and photobooth services. Our DJ was the pretty DJ for our reception, he planned out everything so smoothly for the night and kept the dance floor going all night. They are definitely the only DJ service I would recommend and it helps a lot with all the other services they have to other.

The reviews don't lie! Riley & Adam and their team were so amazing from beginning to end! They did almost everything for us! From the back lit bar, to the comfy lounge area, to the gorgeous centerpieces and the perfect chairs! The atmosphere matched the tone of the party throughout. They hit the nail on the head in every aspect we asked of them! The photo-booth and DJ were a huge hit, the party never stopped and we've got some great photos to look back on! We could never say enough amazing things about this company. They are worth every penny!

I would HIGHLY recommend Unique Events for your wedding! My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the job they did! They went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect! Travis Hempstead was our DJ. He is so easy to talk to and gets back to your questions promptly! He worked very hard during the reception to make sure everything was on time, he brought food and drinks to the head table for everyone, was constantly checking in on the head table and our parents to make sure we were enjoying ourselves, and was extremely polite to all of our guests. He also kept the dance floor packed ALL night!! The music was awesome! The atmosphere was contagious (I would highly recommend the LED dance floor). He also helped out with preparing our cake! It was an absolute pleasure to work with him and the rest of the Unique Events crew. Without Unique Events our reception would have been a good time, but because of Travis and his team the reception was phenomenal. Unique Events recently partnered with Covington & Company and created our flower centerpieces that were truly one of a kind! We couldn’t have imagined something more beautiful!! We owe Unique Events all of our gratitude and thanks for making our wedding day the best day of our life!

My wife and I booked unique events for our wedding. We had Travis Hempstead as our DJ and he was incredible! He made sure the night ran very smooth so that we could get everything in without feeling rushed at our reception. He played awesome music and was very good at keeping everyone on the dance floor. Unique events hooked us up with an LED dance floor, uplighting, table cloths, silverware, a monogram, and did all of our floral work! They also helped us out with a sound system for our outdoor wedding. They are simply the best and I wouldn't want anyone else to be in charge of our reception. Thanks Unique Events you are awesome!

So flexible in service and consultation--they really make me feel like they are tops in their field. We had some lighting done and the photo booth. Every response was timely and they were great about double checking on what I wanted. When the night came, they were punctual and everyone had a lot of fun with the photo booth especially.

So flexible in service and consultation--they really make me feel like they are tops in their field. We had some lighting done and the photo booth. Every response was timely and they were great about double checking on what I wanted. When the night came, they were punctual and everyone had a lot of fun with the photo booth especially. Read less

Travis Newell and Unique Events are absolutely phenomenal. Travis was attentive and organized in our meetings prior to the wedding and so incredibly helpful during the wedding.
He kept us on time, he played all our song requests, he stayed as long as we wanted, the sound quality of the equipment was top of the line, he was awesome!

Our wedding was October 8th of this year. I had heard such wonderful things regarding Unique Events and after our initial meeting with Riley, there was no question we would hire UE for our special day. We used UE for their DJ services and boy did they not disappoint! Travis Hempstead was our DJ and he was amazing. I didn't feel like I needed to worry about a thing, I was in good hands. Planning a wedding can be a lot and my husband and I love music but we can't just rattle off what songs and artists we would want. We really trusted Travis when we said we "wanted him to use his knowledge" and pick the playlist. There was no fear we wouldn't like what Travis picked and it was so easy for us!! Travis took away any work for us at the reception, he cooridinated everything! UE isn't just a music playing business, they do so much more! During our consultation with Travis he brought up things I didn't even know I needed to do! It was first time planning a wedding and I was out at such ease knowing I could count on Travis. Our guests loved the music and kept raving of Travis' personality and how nice he was! Travis is and was wonderful and anyone is lucky to have him DJ your event!! Thank you UE for all your hard work and making our wedding a complete success! I will never recommend anyone other than Unique Events!!!
