We used Unique Events for a DJ at our wedding. Travis was awesome!! He took control of the night right when he got there which took a lot of stress off of me and I could just focus on getting married and enjoying my friends and family. Our wedding was outdoors and he did the music for the ceremony. It down poured 10 minutes before our ceremony was suppose to start. It didn't last long, but it was questionable if it was going to rain again. It looked like we had just enough time to fit our ceremony in so Travis politely rushed our guests outside and we had the outdoor wedding we dreamed about. I love to dance and it was important to me that I could dance the entire night, and thanks to Travis, I did!! He read the crowd perfectly and played songs that kept my friends dancing with me! He kept guests informed about what was happening such as shuttles and speeches so that they didn't miss anything. We didn't have a traditional wedding. I had an idea of what I wanted and Travis made that a reality. I would highly recommend calling Unique Events for anyone looking for a Dj!

We interviewed several DJs and Riley from UE stands out far about the rest from the interview process until the reception. He was VERY personal and wanted to get to know exactly what our expectations were for our daughter's wedding reception. I can honestly say he exceeded our expectations. Several people commented on the great music that was played (all songs were picked up UE we did not submit a play list) and the dance floor was packed the entire evening! Riley definitely made a huge impression on our family and we would hire him over and over! UE did a great job helping us and our guests celebrate our daughter's wedding! Thank your Rile and UE for a remarkable evening!

Riley was a fantastic DJ! Not only did he did he keep our dancefloor full for 4+ hours, but he gave my wife and I advice on the best ways to handle talking to everyone at the reception while still being able to be on the dancefloor as much as possible. Not to mention that he checked in with us multiple times throughout the night to make sure we had everything that we needed and were having fun! I would highly recommend his services if you are looking for a DJ in the Des Moines area!

Thank you to Unique Events for making our daughter's wedding reception one to remember. They made an important part of their day awesome. The dance floor was packed the entire night and my daughter and son in law had a great time along with all of our guests. They made every part easy and everything flowed with out hesitation. They helped out whenever something needed done! They helped in planning the bridal party entrances to what songs we played at the very end. I HIGHLY recommend Unique Events!

Riley was our wedding reception DJ in Des Moines, Iowa and was beyond outstanding!! From the planning to the party, Riley was professional, prepared, fun, and personable. He kept our dance floor packed from the time the dinner was finished until the reception ended at midnight. While playing the music, organizing the reception events such as first dances, and rounding up the wedding party, Riley still found time to bring myself and my husband drinks and check in with us to make sure he was doing all he could to make our reception the amazing, fun, and unforgettable party that it was. Thank you to Riley and Unique Events for the wedding reception memories we will cherish forever!

Words cannot even begin to describe how thankful I am that we booked Unique Events to DJ for our wedding reception. My new husband and I were trying to graduate from college in Ames and plan a wedding in Cedar Rapids for two months after graduation and I was a little worried as to how I was going to make it all come together with planning from a distance. Right from the start Unique Events was there to help and do whatever they could to make the planning easier. From our initial consultation, I could tell that they knew what they were doing and would be worth the money to help the wedding go smoothly. The week of the wedding we met with our DJ, Travis, and when I left that meeting I felt 100% ready for the wedding because he had a timeline and I knew I was in good hands. The whole night of the wedding, Travis was constantly checking with Zach and I to see what we needed to make the night better for us. Unique Events is most definitely worth the money!!! We also booked the photobooth through them and it was a HUGE hit. I have so many wonderful picture from that night of people in the photobooth and am so happy we chose to have this at the wedding!

From beginning to end Unique Events was by far the best choice we made for our big day. Riley worked with us on so many details that we didn't even initially think of. He had great advice and ideas that worked perfectly with what we wanted. We went with the DJ service, photo booth and up-lighting which was all of the highest quality. From the first consultation (which was fun and entertaining) to the wedding day I was extremely impressed with the passion and talent Riley put into making our day completely perfect for us. During the big day Riley kept things moving very smoothly, checked with us before moving to the next activity and reminded me of things I needed to do while my head was everywhere at once. The photo booth had a great attendant who was fun, upbeat and all smiles. I highly recommend Unique Events - they will 100% take care of your day exactly how you want it!

From beginning to end Unique Events was by far the best choice we made for our big day. Riley worked with us on so many details that we didn't even initially think of.

From the initial interview with Riley to the day of the wedding with Travis Hempstead everything about our experience with Unique Events was terrific. The bistro lights looked amazing but what we were really impressed with was Travis' service. He went above and beyond our expectations to make the ceremony/cocktail hour/reception flow seamlessly. He and our wedding coordinator Jaclyn went out of their way to help the caterer serve the wedding party drinks throughout the evening and kept the dance floor moving all night! If we had to do it all over again we would definitely use Travis and Unique Events. Thanks guys!
