I don't even know where to begin! This guy is amazing. I was married yesterday and already have been getting positive feedback from my guests about the DJ services. He was interactive with my guests (even the constant bugging from my 8 year old nephew). I think first and foremost I need to put it out there I contacted him a week before my wedding because my previous DJ fell off the face of the earth and DJ damce boogie stepped up to the plate even when he through the wedding would be the next day. Granted he was a bit more relaxed when he found out he had a week but still. I gave this man a week and couldn't believe the songs and his interaction. It was perfect. He was the best blend of professional but not stuffy. He was smiling behind the booth and not just a stick in the mud. His prices were fair and honest and to be honest for everything we asked him to do on such short notice I felt he actually under charged me. Our bride and groom dance was unconventional but he pulled through. He even called a day before the wedding to verify ALL of the bridal party dances. He played the tracks over the phone to make sure that was the version of each song we wanted. I can't thank this man enough for everything he did for my wife and I. He was on time, played until we were breaking down the center pieces. Any time I had to add something he did it and I could actually hear the smile on his face every time I called him. Always asking to send it in a text or email after we spoke about a change so he had it written down to make sure there was no confusion. Ladies and Gentlemen I could write a novel on this guy. Do yourself a favour just stop looking for other DJs. I promise you won't regret it. You won't find a guy like this, with this attitude for this price you just can't. I know I thanked you at reception but thank you thank you thank and I will be saving your number for future parties - from Mr. and Mrs. Bastian thank you so much.

I was so happy we got to use him for our wedding! little bummed out that he wasn't available for the original date we wanted considering it was a year from when we first talked. sad so we looked elsewhere and than the wife said that we had to go with him. so we changed our date ha ha ha. happy wife is happy life i suppose. when the date came around i love how professional he and his staff were. they sat and asked us about our music favorites, what kind of tempo we wanted for the event and what songs to play for each part of the event. THIS was very different than the other company we talked to briefly because they said you have 75 songs and that's it. how stupid is that? when grandpa came over and asked for a song that he never thought they would have, well they did! he wouldn't shut it about they had HIS song. anyhow, this is long but i loved the service we got. if i got married 10 times i'd use them ten times. thank you.

I loved Niema. I hosted a breakfast at my house for out of town family and friends on a Sunday following a family wedding. Niema was so great about calling and emailing me back. She was always open to my ideas and what I wanted for my party. Niema was also very patient, I changed my drop off time a couple of times and she rolled with it. She came to my house the week before with a contract and we talked about the plan. She only took half of the money and we paid her the rest when she dropped it off. The food was basic breakfast food... pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, bagels, banana bread and fruit. It was DELICIOUS!! Everything was hot and ready to go!! My family was so impressed and I was complimented on how lovely everything was. All of the food was perfect...I had more than enough and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The fruit platter was stunning and so great tasting! I also loved how the bacon and sausage were drained and not sitting in the grease. I passed out Niema's card to many people and I hope my review helps generate a lot of business for her in the future. I can't say enough how much time and energy Niema saved me and I was actually able to enjoy my own party!

I just want to thank Niema Carter for a wonderful job catering my daughter in law's Baby Shower. The food was truly delicious, and the "special fruit" platter that she prepared was an amazing surprise....keep up the good work Niema! Ihanded out all of the business cards that she provided for us, and I am sure she will get many new customers as a result of her professional presentation of a fantastic luncheon...Applauds!!!

Wedding planning is stressful, especially when you live 7 hours away from your venue. Before I hired Gabby, I spent a lot lof time wedding planning under extreme stress. If I'd been thinking, I would have just hired Gabby from the start. Instead, I hired her when I was overwhelmed at the idea of being the point person and the bride at my own wedding. She saved me! Who will put out the flowers? Gabby! Who will coordinate vendor arrival times? Gabby! What will make the wedding ceremony look just right? Ask Gabby! Who will clean up after the wedding? Gabby! The list goes on, but I must say that picking Gabby and After 5 Events as my wedding coordinator was one of my better decisions. Gabby is attentive, experienced, hires excellent interns, and she is enthusiastic. She's also creative, has an eye for aesthetics, and she rocks at making sure that your stress levels remain low! I wish I'd hired her before I'd done so much on my own, but I'm glad I got her when I did!

I can not say enough good things about Gabby & Matt at After Five Events. They made my day run so smoothly and everything came out wonderfully. We had day of coordination services, but I felt as I had a full wedding planner all the way through. Gabby checked in with me each month and offered to help how ever she could. She made final calls to all vendors and made sure everyone was on track. She and Matt are highly professional & a joy to work with and honestly I hesitate to even use the word work as it wasn't work at all if that makes sense. My father in law was raving about how well they treated him and how well everything ran. They even successfully tackled a bustle on my dress from h*ll and did so with a smile. They helped coordinate everything from ceremony to our sparkler exit at the end of the night. Thanks to all their hard work I really got to enjoy our wedding day stress free. Thank you Gabby & Matt!!

After 5 Events is the best!!! They helped make the best day of our lives even more special and beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Throughout our whole wedding planning process, Gabby was there to guide us and meet with vendors, consistently checked in with us, and was always there when we needed her to answer questions or offer suggestions. She helped make our vision come to life in a way that I never could have done on my own. Most importantly, I always felt comforted and relaxed knowing that she was there for us.

Dear Mr Mason: I just wanted to express how pleased I was with our recent wedding ceremony just six weeks ago. With your helpful suggestions I was able to put my ceremonial outline together with ease. You had some very nice suggestions for readings and you read a poem that I requested honoring my deceased mother which you fit in beautifully. I had many comments on what a nice ceremony it was. It was a beautiful September day in a very lovely courtyard at our venue. We wanted a somewhat simple ceremony with all the beautiful meanings. We chose the ring ceremony. It was a wonderful day. Thank you Sincerely, Ray and Sharon O'Sullivan

Rev. Kevin Mason performed our vow renewal ceremony on 4/27/13. He did a wonderful job! Kevin was so nice to work with. He took the time to personalize our ceremony, wanting to make sure all was to our liking. Kevin is kind, sincere, and very accomodating. He was always easy to reach throughout the planning of our ceremony; he promptly responded to all emails. Really can't say enough positive things about this fine Reverend. I highly reccomend Kevin!

The first thing I would like to say is that the moment I spoke with Stephan, owner of Three Brothers Catering, I knew he was the right man for the job! His is so passionate about his work and when you meet him you will see that instantly. We had our daughters wedding at our home for approximately 200 people. Stephan was as excited as we were about the event and created an amazing menu within our budget. We are foodies mind you, so we are very picky about our food! His creative hors d'oeuvres display was beautiful and the passed hors d'oeuvres were amazing. The food was beautifully displayed and tasted out of this world. Just a could have been a little warmer but the wedding was outside and it was windy. He went above and beyond to make our daughters day spectacular and it was. I would highly recommend Three Brothers Catering for any event. Another thing, his staff were awesome! They were on task and very fun to work with. Thank you Stephan Coaker for all that you did to make Shawna and Richards wedding spectacular!

I stumbled onto thumbtack while making funeral plans and am glad to have met Stefan. I work in hospitality so I am fairly judgmental about food and service. He responded to my inquiry very quickly with a very!! thoughtful and impressive menu for the event, and at a great price. ***what's very important to me-- is that I could tell right away that he's kind and genuinely passionate about his work. I would so much rather do business with him than a giant corporation. Speaking throughout the week he offered any extra help or advice I might need for the event. So I was very happy to meet him this morning, the food was plentiful and everyone loved it. I ended up giving out a few of his business cards bc people were so impressed, and I'd love to earn him more business. We had a great fall salad, pinwheels, andouille sausage, and a few Greek pasta salads. It was great, couldn't be happier really. I look forward to working with ya for events in the future, Stefan!

We booked Beamin' Sounds Entertainment for DJ services for both our wedding ceremony and reception. Let me tell you, we could not have been more fortunate than to make that initial call to them. Brent, the owner of Beamin' Sounds was our DJ. We met with him four or five times to plan ALL details of our wedding. He was not only a DJ but also a wedding planner, providing us with full ceremony and reception agendas/itineraries, copies of the ceremony music for our rehearsal, and so much more. He adjusted my train and veil before walking down the aisle with my dad, and kept the party going the ENTIRE NIGHT (from 5:00 - midnight!) and everyone on the dance floor. The flow of the reception was perfect, thanks to him, as everything was timed perfect and no one was ever just sitting, waiting for the next event or dance. There was always something going on. He brought so much personality and energy to our wedding. I must say, I truly miss having meetings with him and seeing him, because he made us feel like family. Do not regret your choice of DJ's for your wedding, the music affects your day more than you know, and Beamin' Sounds will not let you regret your choice on your big day. I even had a problem with another vendor (unfortunately) that did not perform their service up to quality and was a BIG problem at our wedding, and Brent went out of his way to write a letter and talk to the owner of this other vendor to support me in my claims on his own time- he was so helpful and supportive when I was dealing with a very, very disappointing aspect of our big day. Worth every penny, as you get not only get a DJ, but also a wedding planner, and a friend! Beamin' Sounds MADE our wedding day what it was.

We hired Beamin' Sounds Entertainment for our outdoor July wedding. Let me just say, our day was seamless and completely stress free! I can't thank Brent enough for making this day so flawless and unforgettable! He worked with us on several occasions to create the perfect timeline and he made sure that every detail was addressed and executed. Our family has quite the tradition of having Brent and his Beamin' Sounds team MC/DJ our events. He never disappoints! He kept everyone movin' and groovin' all night long! I highly recommend their services!

Cynthia went above and beyond for me as my florist for my bridal shower and wedding day. Her knowledge of flowers is extensive and she is extremely creative when suggesting arrangements. Her own personal garden is an oasis, and she works with you very one on one personally during the planning process. We literally sat in her garden and dreamed up the vision I had for my special day. Not something I would have experienced at a chain flower shop where you are just another bride to them. She is very well connected, and if it is something you want, she will bend over backwards to get it for you. Very responsive to messages or questions. I was worried that the florals would not fit in my budget, she worked with my mom and I to create our vision for the right amount of money. She was very honest and transparent with why it would cost a certain amount, it genuinely helped us make decisions. A co-worker spent $2500 on her flowers, I spent a fraction and there wasn't a difference in quality or prevalence of flowers at my event. The day of my wedding she delivered to THREE different places, boutonnieres for the men, corsages and bouquets for the women, and mason jars with shepherd hooks (which she let me rent from her, one less thing to worry about) flowers for the cake, and other flowers for the venue which was 45 minutes away from the other two drop offs. She was prompt and you can tell she truly loves what she does!! I can't wait for my baby shower in April to use her services again for centerpieces! I have absolutely NO hesitation in saying go with her, you will NOT be disappointed!

Cindy did our wedding in Lockport this past August and was phenomenal! I told her the first time that I met her that I know nothing about flowers so I was going to rely on her a lot and she did not disappoint! Our bouquets were beautiful, fresh and lasted all day. She also did all the centerpieces for the tables, pew bows for the church, and two huge wreaths of white flowers for the inside of the barn. She was so easy to work with and gave us a great price (lower than the other florists in the area!) I wish we could do the wedding over again just to have her flowers!

Saw Cynthia, owner of Hahn's Pallister House Flowers at Antonio's for the Bridal show on Sunday. Out of all the tables set out to "WOW" all brides-to-be Hahn's Pallister House Flowers was my absolute favorite. I have been in love with her arrangements for almost 10 years and will definitely be using her for my wedding...NO QUESTION. You just can't find this type of dedication, precision and beauty anywhere....you find it with Cynthia at Hahn's Pallister House Flowers.

I have worked with Limitless Innovation by CK two times now. The first time was May 2016 where they planned a surprise college graduation party for my husband and they did an amazing job. They were extremely accommodating in the planning process and made adjustments to make sure that all of my wishes were met. Working with Limitless Innovation by CK allowed me to relax and not stress about the mundane details of planning which allowed me to relax and enjoy the graduation party with no worries. During the planning process and on the day of the event, both Cassandra and Keanna were extremely professional. I enjoyed working with them so much that I have utilized their services again to plan my jewelry launch party that was on April 22, 2017. Once again the work of Limitless Innovations by CK was excellent. I highly recommend Limitless Innovation by CK to anyone seeking event planning services from a detail oriented, customer satisfaction driven company and plan to seek their services for any events that I have now or in the future.

The best decision we made when planning our reception was to hire Molly with Anchor Events. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a beautiful and stress-free reception. Molly was always very responsive, professional, flexible throughout the planning process and had great suggestions to fit our budget. She created perfect centerpieces and decorations for the reception that were better than we could have imagined. She wrangled all our vendors with ease to ensure they were all on time and on the same page about the day's agenda. She even ran interference for us when a vendor was causing stress and got us drinks at our reception! If you are thinking about hiring a wedding planner or a decorator you should book Anchor Events, you won't regret it.

My parents and I hired Andrea in June 2010 to serve as our Planner/Event Coordinator for my June 2011 wedding. When working with Andrea you can tell that she is very skilled and seasoned professional. She really took much of the stress out of planning the wedding. She prepared timelines and checklists to keep our planning on track and sent these by email. She was only an email away if we had any questions. Andrea has worked with many WNY wedding vendors and gave us recommendations based on her experience. She really helped us achieve the overall look and feel we were envisioning for the wedding day with her event planning experience and by pointing us to top-notch vendors and service providers that delivered our vision. Wedding day schedules were sent to all of the vendors as to where and when things had to be in place, and Andrea made sure every vendor adhered to the schedule. On the rehearsal day and wedding day she and her team made sure that everything ran smoothly and had every detail attended to. We couldn't have been more pleased with the results. We truly had our dream wedding. If you hire Andrea to plan your wedding or event you will not be disappointed.
