The DJ did a great job. Lots of good comments from our guests.
My experience with Ultimate Entertainment was great. They have an online planning system, where you can lay out the timeline for your reception, choose your special dance songs, must play, do not play, and additional request songs, plus so much more. This helped me stay on track while planning. I also received reminder emails which were very helpful.
When we arrived at the reception, our DJ Rodger was there at the door to greet us and help organize our entrance. He was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable, plus super organized. The entire night went smoothly, all of the important events were on schedule, and Rodger made sure to consult with us throughout the night. He played appropriate songs for the time of night and to accommodate the type of crowd on the dance floor. He played all our requested songs, plus listened to guests' requests. Everyone loved the DJ, and I was very impressed. I would also recommend doing the snowball dance - I had never heard of it, but Rodger recommended it and it was a hit.
They did a FANTASTIC job! There were some computer problems during the dinner part of the reception, but the DJ, Justin Rose, did a great job of keeping us updated and improvising. The company had another computer to him as soon as possible and no one even knew anything was wrong! The company even gave us $100 refund for the issues.
Justin Rose did a great job of keeping the reception moving along and interacting with guests. People were dancing all night long! I would definitely recommend Ultimate Entertainment and, specifically, Justin Rose!

I got married this past weekend in Des Moines, Iowa and my experience with Ultimate Entertainment was great! They have online planning which really helped me think about song selections and allowed guests to even put in song requests before the wedding. They even bought versions of songs that I wanted and they did not have in their library. The DJ was welcoming and very attentive. They truly made our wedding night special. Everything went flawlessly.
Everybody at Ultimate Entertainment was wonderful to work with. Sean met with us before our wedding so I could make sure I had all of the information they needed. Our DJ was John Paar, if you can I would definitely recommend asking for him. He was AMAZING! He asked multiple times throughout the night how me and my husband were and if he could do anything for us. He was great and I am very happy we went with them for our DJ
These guys are AMAZING!!! I was a little wary about going to a large company where you wouldn't know your DJ until shortly before the wedding, but I wasn't too worried because ALL of their DJs are awesome! They do shows around the area daily, and they are all full-time DJs. They have an online system for everything from making payments to choosing what songs you want (and don't want!) played at your wedding. They are extremely responsive and always got right back to me, literally in a matter of a couple hours. Great service, super nice people, and our wedding..... off the hook. I met with my DJ the week of the wedding to go over some details. He made suggestions and helped me work out any details I was unsure of. The night of the wedding, we danced for HOURS and the dance floor was literally packed the entire time. Everyone kept commenting on how much fun it was, and I hand a lot of that over to our DJ for doing such an amazing job!!!! Don't even look anywhere else! These guys are the best at what they do, they are affordable, and you get great service. You won't regret it. By far my favorite vendor and I will be hiring them for any events I have in the future!
Overall we had a great experience with Ultimate Entertainment. Sean was great in following up with me, answering my questions, and providing me with information. We loved the online system for choosing songs and planning, especially since we live in VA and got married in IA. It made the process very easy. The DJ played all the music we wanted and the guests had a great time dancing all night.
Our DJ did a great job at our reception. Our dance floor was always full. I wish he would have played more of the songs on our "must play" list, but it was still good.
The biggest regret I have from my wedding is using Ultimate Entertainment as my DJ. The guests could not hear the DJ the whole night. My husband and I missed our own cake cutting because we could not hear the DJ. We informed him that the sound system was too quiet and he did nothing to correct the issue. When it came time for the dollar dance, we had over 6oo guests and got less than 100 dollars total because our guests did not hear the announcement. I even had guests ask why we did not do a dollar dance. I miss moments with my new family and friends because they were unable to hear the cues. DO NOT use this service. You do NOT get what you pay for!
Super flexible with all of my requests, found music I wanted that wasn't in their catalog, respected my do not play requests. They checked in with me during the reception to make sure we were having a good time. Our DJ definitely appeared to be having fun too! They have an online planning tool that was extremely convenient for us.
We looked at a LOT of DJ services before contacting Ultimate Entertainment. Our search stopped with UE. After I sent an initial inquiry email, Sean called me and spent 30 minutes on the phone learning about our needs for the wedding and letting me know what UE offered (no other service gave us this much time).
When it came time to inputting our schedule and picking our songs on the online form, it was so easy! My husband travels a lot so it was really easy for him to add songs while he was on the road. Their online system let us put in the full wedding party and important family members so I didn't have to worry about getting any information to the DJ on our big day. Also, we requested a couple of songs that weren't in their queu and they managed to get them for us in time for our wedding.
The week before our wedding, our DJ called us and went through each item on the schedule to make sure he knew which songs to play and knew the general schedule. I was very impressed with their pre-planning.
The day of our wedding, our DJ was set up on time and was ready to go 30 minutes before we opened the reception hall for cocktail hour. He confirmed how to say all of our wedding party members' names (a nice touch!) before the party was announced. During dinner, he played big band and classic Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, a perfect complement for dinner. After dinner he got the party started and got our guests on the dance floor. He played all the songs we requested and even took a couple special requests from guests (with our ok). We received a lot of compliments on the DJ; he really made the reception! We were so pleased with Ultimate Entertainment!
We had a great DJ who seemed to know exactly what music to play at what moment. He also had to work with a jazz band and that couldn't have been as easy as working alone. The only reason I didn't give him the full 5 out of 5 stars is because the version of the song we requested for bridal party introductions was some hip hop rap version that I'm still irritated about. (We wanted "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen and the DJ played the remix/rap version. Not happy about that.)
We were VERY pleased with Ultimate Entertainment. They made everything easy and fun! When our ceremony became rained in and we decided to have the ceremony at the reception site, they offered to do the music for our ceremony at a very low cost! The DJ was very good at getting the croud into the celebration and with helping tie each part of the reception into the next. We would definately suggest this vendor to a fellow bride!
Thanks for making this wedding a distinguish event
Ultimate Entertainment did an excellent job of DJ'ing our reception! Sean was a blast to work with, and everyone at the reception kept telling us how great of a job he did and how he really created a fun, enjoyable atmosphere!
Our DJ was GREAT! He had EVERY song I requested. He also really impressed us with playing the Chicago Bull's theme song when introducing the wedding party... and he used the Iowa Hawkeye Fight song when we were going up to speak in the microphone. We're HUGE Hawkeye fans...and a few of my husband's cousins HATE them so that made it even better!
Our DJ came very well dressed and was very professional. They have an interactive website which I liked the best...you can do all of your planning from there. A+
We love working with Ultimate Entertainment. We always get excited and have a sense of relief when we find out the couple has booked them. They keep the reception going and have a great sense to know when to adjust music based on the crowd.
