I helped my husband's cousin plan his wedding, as his bride was still living in Korea up until one month prior to the wedding. Unfortunately, because she was in Korea for most of the planning, getting the correct information to the DJ (proper Korean names, etc.) was very difficult. We were very unorganized, not knowing for sure who would even say the prayer (which depended on which family member was the oldest and the highest ranking in the church that would actually attend the reception). As well, the music choices were pretty much last minute.
Andrew Hur (one of PK's associates) was our DJ, since PK was out of the country on the date of the wedding. He did an amazing job with what little information was given to him at the last minute, basically. He was able to keep the entire 6 hour reception in order, without any of the guests knowing what a chaotic mess we handed to him. He read the crowd perfectly (95% Korean) and everyone had a great time! As you may know, a lot of Korean wedding receptions do not last as long as one would like because the guests become disinterested after they are finished with their dinner. Andy and his team kept the party going the entire time!
I cannot thank them enough for their help and their patience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who asks!
PK is one of the reasons why our guests had so much fun at our wedding. How do I know? I've been approached by many of our guests, Asian and non-Asian alike, asking me "Where did you find your MC?! He's f***ing hilarious!!!"
He had everything set up because he arrived early to make sure everything was working. He had homework for my husband and I to do so that he could be prepared for our wedding.
He responded well to my frantic, last minute emails and worked it into the wedding. I literally sent him stuff at 1:30 a.m. the day of my wedding. ^____^
He entertained our guests, he made up a few songs, he even did one of my favorite PK comedy skits.
He is a true professional and ran our wedding just the way I had only imagined it could be. There were no awkward moments. He kept everyone laughing and now a bunch of them want me to take them to see him when he performs.
If you want your guests to laugh, have a good time and enjoy your special night, you should consider Paul and his DJ. My guests told me they had so much fun dancing the night away and how much their feet hated them the following days. That's right. You heard me. My feet still hurt. I've been married for 4 days now.
Thanks, Paul. You and the DJ really made our wedding fun, enjoyable and memorable not only for us but for our guests. :)
PK and his team were total pros! My wedding was a mix of American-Asians, older Korean generation, and non-Asian friends, and he really got the crowd going. His jokes were very funny, his MC style was very personal (people thought he was a college friend of ours), and he got A LOT of the guests on the dance floor! We had a great time, our friends and family had a great time. We're so happy to have found PK, because our reception was really fun and went so smoothly.
I was referred to PK through my wedding coordinator and I can see why! We had a very easy time working with PK on pretty short notice (booked only a few months before the wedding). He seemed to understand right away that we weren't going for anything crazy since most of our guest were adults, and that we had to be respectful of the Groom's conservative family.
Prokreation provided ceremony, dining, and reception music (they were there almost 8 hours) in a tricky area (went across 3 separate spaces at the venue) but there was never any stop or flow in the music. They also provided lighting for the dance room and PK's amazing sense of humor to get the reception started right. All this for what seemed to me and my husband a VERY reasonable price.
All the ceremony music we asked for was played (there was one minor technical mishap as I was walking down the aisle, but we determined it was just the officiant turning on her microphone). They were able to get a few obscure songs that we requested without any difficulty. Only one of the songs I had on my "Do Not Play" list made it out to the reception, but I have a feeling my mom begged. Also, the DJ was very good at telling guests to ask me if it was okay to play some very off the wall music.
If the venue didn't have very strict guidelines as to when the party (and music) had to stop, we could have kept going for several more hours! The package also included some games... one of which was a hula hoop contest! My guest LOVED it!
We had a great time at our wedding and heard great comments from our guests at how funny the MC was. I think if you have an open mind about your reception entertainment, PK and his team is the way to go!
PK is the best DJ for a korean-american wedding. He not only makes all the mothers and elder people laugh with his jokes and raps, but he also knows how to connect with the younger generation.\r\nHis extensive stage experience puts him at top choice for a day when you don\'t know what will pop up next. One of the best choices we made for vendors!
ProKreation did an amazing job at our wedding. We are still getting feedback on how entertaining PK was. He really catered to the audience and he was completely flexible with the different surprises that my family had for us.
The first time we met him, we knew we had to have him. He made us feel really comfortable talking about what we were thinking of. He was very helpful with his suggestions and he really got creative with us. He was quick in responding to our emails and that is something that I really liked.
On the day of the wedding, he was really organized and professional. Everyone enjoyed the little rap song that he created for us. He really got people dancing and really led the night. He was really energetic through out the whole night.
We definitely recommend ProKreation Productions for your wedding entertainment!
PK is a wonderful person. I think he might have been off his A game. He had just had a crisis in his family so he might have had his mind on that.
Pros: His jokes were very funny. And he even sang a rap for us.
He is very easy to get along with.
He is in tune with the generation (not your typical fobby emcee)
His fee is reasonable for his work.
Cons: We weren't able to meet to talk about our wedding because he was always busy during the weekends and he lived too far away.
He didn't make sure people were paying attention, he never grabbed them into the party (most people, including the maid of honor, noticed when we cut the cake).
He didn't do anything to get people onto the dancefloor (I had to go to the tables and grab them)
Vendor response to review
I believe Kathy's assessment was mostly fair but I believe I deserve a higher score than 3.7.
My father was in a coma and passed away right after the wedding. I flew back from Korea to do the wedding. Kathy wanted boxing gloves for one of the games and I spent money out of my pocket to buy the gloves. When Kathy was changing her dress outside the room, we played a dance contest and the entire crowd was cheering and into it.
There was an R & B Trio that sang during the wedding and they needed a cord to connect to my system and I made sure to go buy that before the wedding as well.
As far as getting people involved during the cake cutting, I was actually the one making sure the photographer and videographer were ready immediately following the slide show to capture the cake cutting while everyone else was watching.
Kathy, my apologies you weren't more satisfied with our service. I understand if you don't refer us but I hope you understand I was doing my best.
I met PK a very long time ago but this was my very first time working with him professionally. I appreciated PK's efforts to accommodate to our preferences and ability to put together the reception schedule that was to our liking. I knew I wanted the reception to be entertaining but didn't have anything specific in mind, so he was quick to come up with fun games for guests to participate in. At the reception, everything went smoothly the entire night, from sound, to music, to lighting. He brought some of his own lights and was up and running when my husband and I arrived at the venue. We received lots of compliments on his song selection from guests. PK is very easy to work with and professional. I highly recommend him for your special day!
He's the best! He really set the vibe for the whole evening. He was hilarious, we were laughing and had the best time of our lives. Recommend for any bride that like to have fun!!
Prokreation Productions ended up being the highlight of our night. The emcee made our night particularly special with exciting contests, games, a special song, and so much more. All my guests have not stopped raving about our entertainment, and our wedding was over a year ago. There was never a dull moment. The price is exceptional for the quality of work. The night was organized, exciting, and trully a night to remember by your guests. I would 100% recommend this company to anyone looking for a night where your guests will be entertained.
ProKreation was worth every penny. They were so professional and organized. I had one meeting where we discussed what kind of guests will be attending, types of games we wanted, whether we wanted a money dance, etc. Things I didn't even consider - yes, I was a bride that wasn't on my A-game. If I had follow up questions, I just emailed them and ProKreation responded immediately.
My guests were half fun loving friends and half very traditional, old Korean parents. My MC, PK, handled the crowd extremely well...just enough to get the young ones pumped but classy enough that the adults enjoyed the reception just as much. Almost ALL the guests stayed until AFTER the cake cutting. Some of the adults even stayed to get their groove on.
The service provided by Prokreation was flawless. From the pre-wedding meetings to the execution at the actual event, PK ensured that the wedding went smoothly and the guests were entertained. He lent tremendous guidance to the whole process, but was very accommodating as far as tailoring the structure and feel of the reception to the needs and desires of the bride and groom to ensure that it had a personalized feel to it. His on the fly witticisms and improvisations to the needs of any situations added additional flair to the occasion. I cannot recommend Prokreation enough.
Paul & his team are such a talented group of djs, mcs, & entertainers. They really bring a unique style to the reception, enhancing the couple - not being too showy & attempting to steal the spotlight. On a selfish note, they are a dream to work with due to their diligent work ethics, equipment, & their ability to read the guests. From a bride's perspective, they are amazing because of their personalities (funny!), style, & of course, music. They completely understand it is the bride & groom's day & it shows through their commitment to do whatever it takes to make it perfect. It really is a treat to have Prokreation be a part of your event. They are the perfect blend of professionalism & fun!
