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.

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 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)

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!!!

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!

Travis Newell went above & beyond at our wedding last Saturday. He definitely exceeded our expectations and contributed greatly to the awesome time we had! Everything we discussed prior to our wedding happened - even refusing to play an artist on my "do not play list" when bribed my brother-in-law. Ha! The photobooth was also a hit and his team treated all of our guests with respect.
I added "wedding planning" to a service Unique Events provided as they are much more than a DJ or Photobooth service - they helped guide us through the entire night to ensure smooth sailing. Thank you!

Travis Hempstead was was very accommodating, flexible, creative and helpful. His experience was very comforting as I believe I provided 0 "must play songs" - he did a great job, covered all genres and made sure everyone heard a tune they could get out and boogie to. He came early and prepared - knew what he had to do and knocked it out of the park. He was a key factor in our day being so memorable and going off without a hitch!

The week of our wedding it was projected to be very cold and we last minute, had to rent a tent. Travis came out to the farm, helped us decide where to place the tent, head table, DJ booth, etc. Travis did our ceremony - where we integrated 3 different songs into the actual ceremony. He worked with not only me on the timing, but also our officiant to make sure we were all comfortable with the flow. During the toasts, the father of the Groom did an impromptu rendition of "we are family" which I found out weeks later, he coordinated with Travis during the cocktail hour. When we did our first dance, I was adamant about wanting it to be with sparklers - Travis helped coach the crowd on how to circle us, and keep the sparklers going throughout the whole song. It looked like we had all practiced that moment 100x. Our contract with UE only went until 11, but at that time we still had a great dance crowd on the floor. My parents and I decided to move the party into one of the barns. Travis did a great job and the party kept going until about 1:30 AM.

We were very pleased with every aspect of not only the services that UE provided us - the photo booth was a hit, the up-lighting looked great in the tent, the dance floor was rocking, and Travis was GREAT! VERY high recommendation for both UE and Travis Hempstead. Many thanks, it was an unforgettable day!

My parents and I decided to move the party into one of the barns. Travis did a great job and the party kept going until about 1:30 AM.

We were very pleased with every aspect of not only the services that UE provided us - the photo booth was a hit, the up-lighting looked great in the tent, the dance floor was rocking, and Travis was GREAT! VERY high recommendation for both UE and Travis Hempstead. Many thanks, it was an unforgettable day!

From someone who has known Travis for many years, I can assure you CAN'T go wrong with Unqiue Events! Their name simply tells the story - Travis and his team will do what it takes to make your wedding unique! They offer everything from DJ services, which are TOP notch, to different dance floors, uplighting, lounge areas, etc. I knew from the day I got engaged what I wanted my reception to look like and Travis truly helped me make it come alive! We had blush uplighting, a white dance floor, with a white lounge setup surrounding the dance floor...it was truly amazing. For character, class, ease, and everything in between, Unique Events is the way to go!!!
