I met with Bill Crane at Elegant Occasions/EO Studios regarding my upcoming wedding. The office was amazing with everything I needed under one roof. The quality was good and I got a comfortable feeling that the company would still be in business on my wedding day. Several places I looked at seemed desperate to get my business like they were struggling to stay open and put a lot of pressure on me to “book today and get this great deal”. A few numbers I called from recent referrals and magazines were disconnected so confidence was important to me. Bill was professional, put me at ease and gave me no pressure which was refreshing after meeting with other companies. Price was also important and I found out they have a give back program for Police, Firefighters, Teachers, Military and maybe one or two others. Because my Fiancé is a firefighter we saved over $1500 making them the most affordable option out there. Bill took the time to ask me if I qualified for any of their discount programs and really worked with me to get every discount he could. He really seemed to care about US not our MONEY. If you are looking for a Professional, Reliable, and Reasonably priced option you certainly should call Bill Crane at Elegant Occasions.
fantastic dj service - worked the crowd very well. would recommend to anyone
Wayne ;Just a word about our Wedding this past Sunday (3/13/2011)SPECTACULAR !!!
From the first moment that we met you and then Bill Crane everything was handled in the most professional manner. In an era of hustlers and cons you and your people know how to "under promise and over deliver.
What can one say about your staff? Bryan Kaufman is the consummate professional who got our crowd up and dancing. He was pleasant to work with and never said no that can't be done. We finally had to tell him to go home or he'd still be playing. We can't thank him enough.The photographer was easy to work with and you never saw him in the way he was patient and courteous and above all fun . The videographer was the same as well as the assistants. When you hire a company such as yours you never know what to expect. We were "blown away" and thank you and Bill for the experience.If you would like to add this e mail to your "bragg book" please feel free to do so.
Thanking you again, Bonnie and David Silverstein
Everyone had a great time. Thank you!
As a gay couple my partner and I were apprehensive about choosing services for our commitment ceremony. The first question I had for Bill, my liaison with Elegant Occasions, was if they would be uncomfortable providing services for a same sex couple. I had asked other companies this same question and was actually hug up on by three of them! Bill assured me they had done many commitment ceremonies and it would not be a problem. As it turned out Bill performed the ceremony, and we also used the company for photo, video, dj, up-lighting and a live trio. EVERYONE with the company was friendly and professional the whole time. The album and video were spectacular and our dj Bryan made the whole night a wonderful success.
I would highly recommend working with Elegant Occasions if you appreciate artistic photography. They did a wonderful job at our wedding. We have many beautiful photos from the event, both color and rich black and white photos. They took a nice assortment of the traditional posed photos with every member of the family and they captured candid, lovely shots of intimate moments we had during our important day.
The video was also great and the DJ definitely made the party a success!
The other wonderful thing about Elegant Occasions is Bill Crane, our “Event Specialist”. He was polite, and easy to work with. He listened to our desires and helped us put it all together at a price we were happy with.
The wedding was amazing and the photographer and videographer were great!!!!!
The photographer didn't miss a beat and there was a short window where we were actually able to take our family portraits outside.
The videographer was videotaping every time we turned around.
The DJ, Dancers, and MC Josh were fantastic and definitely kept everyone on the dance floor for the whole night.
Thank you again for all of your help with all of the details leading up to our celebration. I greatly appreciate everything you did for our entire family. It was truly a pleasure working with you and your staff and I would definitely recommend you to my friends who are looking for entertainment.
I have to admit - when crunching numbers for the cost of the wedding we almost eliminated the Wedding Video because it was just "not worth the money." A few months before the wedding i was doubting my original thought and contacted EO after having read such amazing reviews on TheKnot. Fortunately, they were still available on our wedding date. The sales rep i worked with, Devorah, was fabulous. She made me feel comfortable and quickly provided me all the details i needed (on more then one occassion).
All I have to say is you'll never regret having your wedding recorded. As a matter of fact i highly reccommend it. Once we received our video I was so impressed, grateful, and beyond words. Elegant Occassions did an AMAZING JOB capturing our special day.
We can't get enough of the video.
All i can say is, thank you for being amazing at what you do.
I do not have the video..
The service was great.
HIGHLY DISSATISFIED WITH SERVICES RENDERED.
This person did not use us for videography.
I found Elegant Occasions/EO Studios to be professional, reputable, high quality and affordable.
I had Steve film my 3/5/11 wedding. He was great. I have not seen the footage yet, but I saw him out there where he needed to be. He video taped some romantic shots outside and he got on the floor to get some different angles. He was very professional and had some great ideas. I was very pleased with my experience.
My husband and I used Elegant Occasions for our photography, videography, DJ, décor lighting and monogram last November. The reception room had a beautiful glow in amber LED lights and our monogram was bright and clear. The DJ/MC kept the party going strong right up to the last minute. The only complaint from my family was that we could not party all night! I received over a thousand images on disc and almost everyone was perfect. I had a hard time narrowing it down to the images I got in the album so I had to add more pictures to my album when we did our album design! The video was good but I chose a smaller video package so I didn’t get all the bells and whistles. Looking back I would have spent less on my flowers which went in the dumpster and more on the video. Now I’m pregnant and can’t wait till I’m big enough to do my maternity session! I can’t speak for anyone else but my experience with this company was wonderful.
I booked their EO Studios division for photography and videography. I thought their prices were reasonable for the artistic quality I saw and the albums were amazing!
I also used their Forte Entertainment division for disc jockey, up-lighting, a violinist for the ceremony and a steel drummer for the reception. I was particularly concerned about the music since we have a mix of cultures but they showed me how we can choose all our own music and everything went great! Most of the DJs I looked at did not offer this option and that really put me at ease.
I used Elegant Occasions - EO Studios and Forte Entertainment - for my photo, video and DJ.
No matter which companies I looked I was shocked by how much they all charge and I was terrified about spending so much money on these services without knowing who they are and what they do. My friend used Elegant Occasions and said, "You get what you pay for" and she was happy afterwards so we looked at them along with other companies. Their prices were in line with several other companies that seemed to have good quality and reputation. They had a good rating with the Better Business Bureau and I checked with the Clerk of Courts in Broward to see it they had ever been sued. After a lot of discussion my fiancé Michael agreed to our using them and now we could not be happier.
My wedding was in March and I just got my final album. Oh my God! It's better than I ever dreamed so I had to take a moment to do a full review...
Bill, our "event specialist" was amazing. He was always available when I needed to talk and was very helpful and informative about the entire wedding industry. Our photographer Bryan H, was very patient with me on the wedding day (I was very nervous) and the photos (over 1000) were awesome! Our videographer Walter stayed out of sight and we barely saw him. I was afraid afterwards he must have missed stuff but it was all there and the final video was amazing. Finally we had Bryan K for our MC and Jermaine for our DJ. Jermaine rocked the house and several of my friends said later it was one of the best weddings they ever went to. Bryan K kept everything going smoothly so I didn't have to worry about a thing all night. The company’s online worksheets really helped us to choose our music and work out the details.
In closing the most important thing I learned through this process is you only get married once (at least in my case!) and you can't get a redo if you choose poorly. Looking back Michael and I agree that we could have gone cheaper but the little extra we spent guaranteed us a successful day and long happy memories.
