At first I was going to hire a Dee Jay in the $500-$600 price range, and as Mike had done my brother's wedding I called him to see if he could help us out. I found out that his prices were a little more expensive than I had planned, but the services that Elite Stage & Lighting offered made all the difference between a boring open-house style reception and a PARTY for our wedding. He memorized our love story and told it during the reception, he had so many ideas for fun games and the appropriate music selections to bring on the different events such as cake cutting, first dance, and garter toss. The majority of guests at the wedding were either in their 20's or 60's-70's, and everyone LOVED Mike, and they loved being involved in our special day. He didn't take attention away from me and my husband and focus on himself like some Masters of Ceremonies can do, but he genuinely made our reception such a good experience and included our guests in the dancing, advice giving, and picture taking. The lights were fantastic, and I have the pictures to prove it. We transformed the gym into something else completely with the curtains around the walls. We had overpaid him by a couple hundred dollars and he had written us a check to make up for that amount, but by the end of the night my parents were so pleased with how the reception/party had turned out that they ripped the check up and threw it away. I had an idea before the night of the reception that they were going to be good, but I had no idea HOW good until that night when Mike delivered what he had promised and MORE. We heard it weeks later from friends and family how much fun they had had at our reception, and we give most of the credit for that all to Elite Stage & Lighting.
