We hired DJ Dan Utica Services for our school winter formal dance, which had about 200 people in attendance. DJ Von, who was sent to us, was great!! He seemed very experienced and did a great job of keeping everyone dancing. I gave him a 4 star rating out of 5 for just a few reasons: 1. Our group didn't realize that DJ Dan was an agency, and assumed that he was an independent DJ. When a DJ came to meet us that wasn't the one pictured on the website we were a little confused 2. The closed photo booth had an outside as well as inside screen, so everyone waiting in line could see the actions of those inside the photo booth, which was kind of awkward. The printer also took a long time to print out the photos, so people would leave and have to remember to come back and get their photos later 3. In our original meeting before the event with the DJ, he was pretty vague about what music programs he used, what sort of audiences he had catered to, what types of lights he would bring, and other questions we asked him. However, it was kind of him to offer to meet with us beforehand, and I can be a bit of a control freak at times, so I can see where this would only be an issue from my point of view. Overall, the DJ services were great, as well as the fact that he arrived two hours early for set up and didn't inconvenience us at all with clean up. The photo booth was well operated, high quality, and definitely added to the event. The lights I would highly recommend these services as long as you ironed out the wrinkles mentioned above.

Amazing experience with Madison! Wow, I would hire them again in a minute!!! I had my mom's 80th birthday party luncheon planned for a couple of months, and I had a caterer lined up. One week prior to the event, the caterer had a family emergency out of state, and I was left uncertain, unsure, and pulling my hair out. I got in touch with Madison, and within 24 hours, she had sent me a menu that sounded perfect for my event. The day before the event, I got in touch with her because I had several more people let me know that they could make it to the party. She said "No problem, I can just go to the store!" The food was outstanding, everyone raved about the food, and many people asked for her card. She was so efficient, that it went off without a hitch. I'm not even going to look for another caterer...the next event, I'm going to go right back to Sorensen's Smokin' Catering!!! I have her saved on my phone!

Mariah and her team did beautiful work. She interpreted my wishes for a unique bouquet in a way that was not only on-point (!) but also budget friendly. Her willingness to utilize materials sourced from our venue (familt vineyard) made our event feel incredibly personal and custom.

Take a Break (Tami) has great ideas and works hard to give you what you want as far as an event planner she is just starting out but her positive energy gets you excited for the party you are planning and please remember sometime in our life we were all "starting out" so if you hire her give her a break because she will work it for you and as time goes by I can see her experience being absolutely awesome and If you need any day to day errands done that you don't have time for or just don't want to do she will do them she can do it one time or you can hire her to pick up your cleaners every Thursday and she will and deliver and my opinion the only thing she is lacking is charging what she's worth she undercharges for sure and I teased her about that I wanted to give her a lesson on charging a good price lol I liked her sense of humor so she is new to the business of party planning but she has got creative ideas and she did a good job with my daughters 21st birthday decorations and then I hired her to do my personal errands for two weeks because I was busy with work and family down from out of town for the birthday party I do know she doesn't pick up children because she's making sure that she is licensed for that but she did take my cat to the vet for me she is an animal lover very good with kids and animals. Thanks Tami
