Boodini performed during the cocktail and dinner hour of our wedding celebration. The guests really enjoyed the up close magic and balloon work. When our agreed upon two hours was over I asked if he would be willing to stay another hour. He was available and agreed. Thanks Boodini for an awesome evening!!

Where can I start? I could not have asked for a better night. Rick and Dance Pro DJ's made our whole wedding a blast and a night to remember. Starting from the "hand holding" Rick did with the music for our wedding cerony and reception all the way down to the photo booth. His way to keep the dance floor entertained all night was great. He catered to all the guests Old to young and all in between. Also the booth was so nice. They had an attendant there to assist all the guests and he was so helpful especially with the little kids. The photo strips were very clear and very professional and the props were tons of fun. Rick and Dance Pro DJ's get an A+ in making our wedding surely a night to remember. Thank you again. Jackie

Long overdue review. Sorry Normajean !! I am the events coordinator for Downtown Portage Inc. We hired Normajean to help entertain guests for our Canal Days Festival. We experienced horrible weather which kept most people indoors. Normajean didn't let the it rain on our festival parade. She even went as far as standing in the rain and waiving in people to come in a participate under the big tent. I would highly recommend her for any event and look forward to working with her again in the future.

I worked with Emil for our wedding and from our first consultation, my now husband and I knew we made a great decision! We took our engagement photos with Emil and we were so excited because if this was the sneak peek to what our wedding photos would be like, then we knew our photos were going to be just beautiful! On our wedding day Emil was so kind and patient! You could tell he has a true eye for vision because he would watch the sun to wait until it was in the perfect spot for our perfect shot!!! Well I couldn't believe just a few short weeks later, a little package in the mail and with all of our wedding photos!!!! They are more than we could imagine and they came out so beautifully! Choose visual etiquette! Seriously... Emil captured more than photos, he captured the moments of love and joy and help make them live on forever!!!!

XOXO Photobox was the perfect addition to our September 17th wedding! We booked XOXO pretty last minute in terms of wedding standards (3 weeks before our event) and we were very happy with the decision and the results. Maria and Brooke were very easy to work with, quick to respond, organized, prepared, and professional. They showed up early to our event to set up and were friendly and responsive to our guests. They have a ton of photo booth props to pick from including wedding themed props. You can even choose black and white, color, or retro for your prints while you are in the photo booth. Literally the next day we received an email on how to access our online gallery. We and our guests loved the photo booth. :) We highly recommend XOXO! -Jessie and Dave

We were truly happy with the services that Keicy Photobooth Rental provided on our wedding day. We hired them for our wedding and all wedding guests could not stop raving about how great they were. They were so helpful and made our wedding memorable. They also included a photo album where our guests could leave us notes and a USB that had all the pictures from that night. We could not thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone looking to photobooth services. We loved their custom design for our wedding also! They were both professional and affordable. Karen was always responsive when we messaged her with questions. We can't to hire you again for another event. Thank you so much!!!

We hired Bryan for my son's first birthday! We had guests from 7-60 years old and they all loved him! He walked around doing close up magic and finished it off with an awesome show which included many volunteers! He has a great personality and is very funny! I would definitely recommend him for ANY event! Thank you, Bryan, for really entertaining my guests and making my son's 1st birthday party a hit!

Jon provided the music for the cocktail hour of our wedding on Sunday, September 18, 2016. We must start out by saying that, because the entire wedding was one big whirlwind, we did not have the pleasure of being able to hear a majority of Jon’s performance. However, we did hear through word of mouth that the guests really enjoyed the music that Jon provided. We communicated exclusively through e-mail. He was very kind and patient with us as we tried to figure out what types of music we wanted to play. Jon was able to send us a list of songs that he was well-versed in and that accommodated the genres we ultimately decided on (latin, jazz, bossa nova, R&B). This made our lives easier as it helped us to focus and eventually narrow our choices down to a small selection of songs. We finally got a chance to meet face to face at the wedding venue. He was very sweet and very formal (and he speaks Spanish too!). We did have a bit of confusion regarding whether or not Jon would use his own personal keyboard or the piano provided by the wedding venue but thankfully everything worked out in the end. Jon was VERY reasonably priced; however, he does not provide a contract (but because Jon is such a professional, this was not an issue at all). We would absolutely recommend Jon. And like we had mentioned to him at the venue, hopefully we have another opportunity to hire him so that we can listen to and enjoy his musical talents in its entirety. Thanks again Jon!

I can't say enough good things about Mr. Powers. He pushes me to do my best at every lesson and is very encouraging and kind. I look forward to voice every week and would recommend him to anyone, experienced and novice singers alike.

Matt performed at our wedding ceremony and it was the perfect addition. Churches typically allow only approved religious songs during the ceremony itself, however, Matt's guitar playing at the beginning and end of the ceremony was a great way to incorporate our own musical favorites and really personalize the experience for us and our guests. I had numerous guests comment on his guitar playing skills and how they enjoyed the live music and recognizable songs while they waited.

Had a great experience with Mr. Photobot at our wedding!! We booked last minute and they were very responsive getting us our customized photo strips and Snapchat filter. The attendant was friendly and the scrapbook they put together for us was fantastic! The photo booth was a total hit- we had a lot of kids who loved it, adults did too! Would definitely recommend them!

I recently booked my events and celebrations Photo Booth for my wedding and it was great! First off, it's an actual booth rather than just a curtain or tent set up​. Plus their props are amazing - astronaut and Viking helmets, mustaches, animal headbands, you name it! My wedding guests (especially the kids) LOVED the booth and Peter & Diana are so great to work with. They design a custom logo for the bottom of your reels and if you get the photo guestbook it's such a great and hilarious keepsake. I've been a guest at 20+ weddings and this is the best photo booth I've seen. If you need a photo booth in the Chicagoland area, choose my events and celebrations, you won't be disappointed.

Janice & Jennifer were perfect. These ladies are a must book! They went above and beyond to make my wedding dreams come true! Their props were great with a lot of variety and they made all of my guests feel welcomed. The bubble booth looked so cool inside the venue! The dance on a cloud effect made our entrance perfectly dramatic. Thank you both so much!

Kathy sang at my California wedding in August 2014, during the ceremony and the reception. I discussed the songs I was considering with Kathy many times in the months leading up to our wedding and she listened to my ideas, giving guidance and suggestions for impactful songs. We ended up choosing an Adele song for the ceremony and a Beatles song for the reception. One of our guests told me after that he's only cried at two weddings: his and when Kathy sand Adele at ours. If I could give Kathy six stars, I would. Kathy is the epitome of professional. In a process filled with weirdly secretive costs (the minute you say wedding, costs increase exponentially) it was a huge relief to have someone up front, honest and fair with prices and expectations. If you are worried about having a meaningful music experience, hire Kathy. She listened to our desire for an emotional performance at the ceremony and a more 'fun song' at the reception and knocked it out of the park with "I'm So Tired" by the Beatles. I could go on about all the ways Kathy enhanced our wedding experience, but let me leave it at this: if you are even remotely considering live music at your wedding, you would be crazy not to contact Kathy.

I can't stress enough how much we loved working with Manny for our Wedding in October 24, 2014. From the moment we met, we knew he was someone we wanted to play at our ceremony. We didn't want traditional wedding, we wanted something different. We had music from the 80's and 90's that represented our taste, to contemporary music. I highly recommend using Manny, and I know the guests at my wedding does as well.
