The following is a review written by Keith and Roshi
As I am writing this review, it has been 24 hours since my wife and I became married and we are STILL buzzing from the excitement and energy that Tommy and his crew created at our wedding! From beginning to end, Inspire’s team were present, professional, entertaining, and detailed in their delivery of our event. On top of music and entertainment, Tommy is also an ordained officiant and served as such for our wedding ceremony. His delivery, language, and improvisation made for a heartfelt, original, and enjoyable experience as we were married. I’d like to use the rest of this review to outline some of the ways that they went above and beyond our expectations.
Tommy and his team arrived hours before the start of our wedding ready to setup and test all their equipment. They made themselves available for the entire time to field any last-minute questions that ALWAYS come up. Being early and running on time are key to getting a great start and having a “surprise-free” wedding.
Tommy has worked hundreds of weddings. From our first phone call to the final in-person appointment at his office, we felt that he was in control and prepared for everything that can and does happen at weddings. He was even prepared for all our cultural questions related to the customs of our heritage. He took everything in stride. This is only accomplished using an experienced and truly seasoned wedding entertainer.
Planning our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception could not have been any easier than with the use of Inspire’s online planning and music portal. Here, we could pay our bill, manage the event planning (from ceremony processional, to the grand entrances, all the way to the dance music!), and choose virtually ANY song to be used throughout the event. This portal was incredibly useful leading up to our day!
We cannot say enough about Tommy’s character. He is an extremely well-spoken, incredibly friendly and outspoken guy. His welcoming and warm nature made us feel calm and under control on our wedding day. But, when the time came to get everybody pumped up for dancing, he became the life of the party, seamlessly blending music with special events, speeches, and line dances. Not to mention, his wit and clever sense of humor were perfectly peppered in at just the right times.
Wow. Inspire’s equipment was incredible. The speaker system used in our reception ballroom filled the space with music and a strong deep bass that didn’t overwhelm but kept the beat pulsing through everyone’s feet. They used amazing portable speakers from Bose for our cocktail hour and ceremony. This helps a lot in making the sound travel throughout the room and providing crisp natural speech for your ceremony and vows. His lighting was vibrant and added a touch of class to our reception. We loved how the uplights could change with the music! So cool! We also used a projected insignia of our name on the dancefloor that was fully customizable. What a great touch. Finally, the photo booth was perfect. It was low profile, well lit, and like a cutting-edge piece of technology. Also, as a great special touch, Inspire provides a booklet containing all of the pictures with special signatures and messages from all the guests. They gave us our book the same night!
