Unique Events made my wedding reception perfect! We wanted a DJ that was going to keep the dance floor packed all night long, and Travis did just that! The planning process was easy and they had great suggestions about how to make the reception timeline flow appropriately. I also loved that whenever I contacted anyone from Unique events, they got back to me right away! They may be a little more expensive than other DJ's in the area, but it was worth every penny and I would do it again in a heartbeat. We had a blast, and we owe a big part of that to the professionalism and expertise of Travis!

We also rented one of their photo booths. It is open air so it was great entertainment for guests to watch. I love that they give you a flash drive at the end of the night that has all the pictures on it. They had a lot of props to choose from, but I do feel they could have had more variety. Overall though, we are so glad we booked it at the last minute. We have so many great memories in those pictures of all our guests.

Travis and Riley were an absolutely joy to work with! They were prompt with their responses, knew their way around the venue, and incredibly professional in every aspect of their work. Travis took the time to explain the difference between various types of equipment and showed me many options for rentals. Riley responded to emails within 24 hours and delivered contracts that were clear, concise, and accurate. It was worth it to pay for this quality of service, so that we did not have to encounter any hiccups along the way or on the big day.

Unique Events truly helped us make our wedding one of a kind! They exceeded all of our expectations and helped us to have a wonderful wedding experience! They were very professional during the consultation and we decided to use many of their services. I wasn't sure about spending the extra money on the LED dance floor but since my husband was adamant about it so we did. IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY! Between the fun dance floor and the great job that Travis Hempstead did as our DJ our dance floor was full all night long! My friends, family, and in laws were all dancing and enjoying the whole time! The photo booth was also a big hit for people to check out when they wanted to take a break from dancing. Not only did we have a great night of dancing but Travis also made sure we tried to stay on schedule for dinner, speeches, and other activities we had planned. Unique Events will not disappoint on any services that you rent from them! We are so happy we chose to work with them!

We have been to many weddings hosted by Unique Events and always had a blast! I knew right after we got engaged who we would hire for our DJ service for the reception.
We hired Unique Events for their DJ service, up lighting service, and photo booth service for our wedding reception in April. They did such an amazing job! Riley was extremely helpful throughout the whole planning of the wedding reception. We met with him for a consultation before the wedding. He was well prepared with list of songs and a plan for the night to flow smoothly. He took the stress of my shoulders! I was able to relax and enjoy my big day.
Their up lighting service they provided was amazing. We had a very colorful wedding and Riley managed to match the colors perfectly. The up lighting gives the reception hall a different pop of color that looks amazing!
The photo booth was a huge hit as well. I love the fact that we get to keep a USB card filled with every picture taken at the photo booth!
I would highly recommend Unique Events to any future Bride and Groom! They take the stress out of planning, and allow you to relax and enjoy your big day!

Riley and his team were ready to assist us from the beginning. They were able to do whatever we wanted, whether it be lighting, photo booth or DJ services they were able to accommodate to us. Riley was awesome at our reception. He offered to get us drinks, spoke to the wedding party to help get them in line and was very informative to our guests about when the wedding party was showing up and what time everything was starting. We had so many guests say that they loved the mix of music and how involved the DJ was. Riley was amazing and so was his team. I would recommend Unique events to anyone!!!

Riley from Unique Events did an AWESOME job at our daughter and son-in-law’s reception. He kept everyone informed what was going on from the arrival time of the wedding party, time for dinner, and time to dance! He was there for them to make sure that their wedding celebration was everything that they wanted it to be. He introduced himself to us (the parents of the bride and groom) and let us know that if we needed anything to let him know and he would help us out. We had so many people compliment us on the DJ, the lighting and the fun photo booth! Riley did a great job on mixing up the music so that everyone could enjoy it! The music was played at a nice volume so everyone, young and old could enjoy it. Riley kept the guest involved and we always had a full dance floor. Riley did a wonderful job and I would recommend him and Unique Events for any celebration that you are planning! Chris and Tim (parents of the bride)

There is a reason why Unique Events has four, five, and even ten times the number of 5 star reviews as the other vendors listed. With the lit dance floor, the photo booth, the music at our ceremony and reception (different venues), helping to plan and execute the order of events at the reception we knew we were in good hands. This was the only area of the entire wedding process that I felt I didn't have to micromanage and as a groom that was called bridezilla on more than one occasion that speaks a lot about the trust I put into Travis Newell and his company. Everything they did went above my expectations. The emcee service they provided at the talented hands of Travis Hempstead entertained our guests and made the night more than just another wedding reception. I'd like to publicly thank them for helping to make our wedding the day we hoped it would be.

We have been to so many events hosted by UE and we knew there was no other company we would rather have for our wedding. From the moment we started the consultation to the end of the wedding we had 5-star service. Riley was so helpful when it came to giving us the information we needed when we were looking into a DJ Service. Travis H. was incredible during the consultation, asking us questions we hadn't even thought about. During the ceremony and reception, Travis H. went above and beyond to make sure our night was unforgettable. Everyone at UE is incredibly professional and they make sure your event is unforgettable from start to finish. AMAZING JOB AND WE WILL NEVER GO WITH ANOTHER DJ. UE comes highly recommended!

We hired Unique Events for their DJ service and photo booth service and were extremely pleased with both! Not only did we feel that way, but we had many of our wedding guests offer compliments to us on our choice of vendor.
Our DJ was Travis N. and the week of the wedding he met with us and went over everything, helped us to create a flow and schedule to ensure that the night would go smoothly. After the wedding party was introduced and we had all taken our seats, Travis came over to us and asked if we needed anything and even took our first drink order! He definitely went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great evening.
The photo booth was a great hit for all our guests. We really liked how their photo booth was open and thus allowed for whole groups of people to be in the photo, rather than just 2-3. They even presented us with a USB at the end of the night with all of the photos taken from the photo booth!
I would highly recommend Unique Events to future brides and grooms...they listened to our wishes and really made sure our experience was a custom one, no request was too much for them!
Thanks Unique Events!

He definitely went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great evening.
The photo booth was a great hit for all our guests. We really liked how their photo booth was open and thus allowed for whole groups of people to be in the photo, rather than just 2-3. They even presented us with a USB at the end of the night with all of the photos taken from the photo booth!
I would highly recommend Unique Events to future brides and grooms...they listened to our wishes and really made sure our experience was a custom one, no request was too much for them!
