I have had the pleasure of working with Fantasy Sound for years as a wedding professional, and naturally when it was time to plan my own wedding, hiring them was a no brainer! We hired them for DJ services, lighting, draping and video. I had trouble explaining my exact vision for the lighting at first, however I trusted my vision to the experts, and when I saw it all come together on the wedding day, it was absolutely PERFECT! From the beautiful white chiffon draping separating the ceremony from the reception outdoors, to the exact pink "glow" I envisioned in the indoor lounge area, to the great music and the absolutely fantastic video we received to relive those awesome memories...Fantasy Sound completely exceeded our expectations!!! Although logistics were not the easiest at the private home we chose as our venue, the entire staff reassured us every step of the way they would make our vision work. If you want a beautiful wedding, ease of mind during the planning process, and an overall smooth event, you need to hire these professionals.
If I could give Fantasy Sound 100 stars I would!!!
Before I start this review, I just want to say that this is coming from a Bride who was 6 months pregnant and had 320 guests.
They are true professionals, reliable and easy to work with. They went above and beyond to ensure everything was PERFECT on our Wedding day!
Nick was our DJ and he was amazing - He made sure we stayed on-time and the flow of our Wedding was phenomenal. Nick made us feel 100% confident and at ease. He knew the right song to play at just the right time. He was attentive and made sure our guests were happy. Our family and friends are still raving about how great the music was. Nick has a fabulous voice and mic presence ... We couldn't have done it without him.
We also rented drapery, lighting and their gorgeous candle chandeliers; Everything was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. When I met with them about lighting, drapery and chandeliers, I was extremely indecisive - They were so patient, helpful and honest.
Lastly, we used them for Videography - Jillian was so sweet, professional and without being invasive she got everything!!!
We owe everyone from Fantasy Sound for an incredibly perfect and flawless Wedding.
I used Fantasy Sound's lighting services for my wedding this past weekend. When I walked into my own reception I was stunned at how beautiful everything looked. It's a lil steep on the pricing but well worth it. Their 12 light chandeliers are so magical and beautiful and I highly recommend a GOBO light with your names on the dance floor for that extra oomph. The staff at Fantasy Sound is incredibly kind, accommodating and provide excellent customer service. I think most of my emails were all answered within half a day max. They're extremely professional and know what they're doing so you don't have to worry if they'll deliver your vision. Highly recommended! I wish I could relive my wedding all over again! :)
We went with Fantasy for our lighting services at the Palm Event Center. The lighting/ceiling at the Palm is sort of like a giant, black warehouse ceiling (probably my only complaint about the Palm) so it needs a little sprucing.
At first we really loved the large crystal chandelier, it really is so eye catching, but then we realized it didn't really fit the Palm or the rustic theme we were going for.
We went with the candle chandeliers (yes real candles!) and loved them! The fit our look and the Palm so beautifully! I had been to a wedding at the Palm a few months before ours where the bride only used 3 and I thought they were a bit smaller than I had imagined so I went with 5 and I think it was perfect! Framed the dance floor really well and they looked gorgeous in person and in photos!
We also chose to do a wash on the dance floor instead of a monogram. The Palm uses tables to form the dance floor, which is tile. I wasn't crazy about the look so the wash covered it up really well. My only complaint with the wash is that it makes some of the pictures look blurry because everyone has lights shining down on them. I wish someone had brought this up during the planning, but I'm still glad that I went this route.
Overall we were very happy with the lighting and were able to make it fit within our budget.
Fantasy Sound was very easy to work - quick responses, flexible with their appointments, and happy to provide input and ideas. They did an amazing job with the Chandeliers, Lighting and Draping. Everything was gorgeous!
After seeing photos of Fantasy Sound's beaded chandelier used at our venue, Palm Event Center, we decided we had to rent one as a "splurge" for our wedding. And we're so happy we did! The 12 foot by 12 foot chandelier framed the dance floor perfectly, and added just the right amount of sparkle. Our decor was simple and the chandelier added that wow factor. We used white light because we wanted to brighten up the ballroom a bit, and it was perfect for us.
Also, the booking process was super simple, and Fantasy Sound is great about doing business remotely through email and by phone, for the busy bride.
Jillian and her crew were fabulous to work with! We heard they were great from our a friend who uses them for her job and even used them for her wedding. My husband had Jillian do an engagement video for us and we also went with her for our wedding! Jillian and Dana caught everything without getting in the way! Everyone we worked with at Fantasy Sound during throughout the planning process were awesome and super helpful!
Fantasy Sound did an amazing job with our ceiling drapery, center chandelier and gobo wash to give our reception a more vintage/ classical ambiance. They were very helpful with choosing the best design for our gobo wash. Nick in particular did an amazing job with the length and height of our ceiling swag. In the end, it turned out even better than expected!!. Overall fantasy sound exceeded our expectations . We Highly recommend their lighting and decor services.
I not only work with this vendor on a professional level but I also had them DJ my own wedding. Kevin and the whole fantasy sound team is fantastic to work with. I constantly recommend them to my own brides and loved having them at my own event. Thank you fantasy sound!
I used Fantasy Sound Event for our DJ service as well as drapery and lighting. First off the ceremony & reception space looked beautiful!! They were so professional and everything was on time! We also had Nick as our DJ. He was absolutely fantastic! So easy to work with and everyone at the wedding had such a good time! I would highly recommend them! Thank you so much!!
We went with Fantasy Sound initially because of the lighting package we scored through Casa Real. We choose to go with them for their DJ services due to their excellent customer service and professionalism. I worked with Dana on everything leading up to the wedding and I emailed her more times than I can count! It had to have exceeded the 100 mark. She is stellar at her job and extremely on top of it. Once we ironed out all of the details we were all set to meet with some of the DJs at their meet and greet night, but it was really hard for my husband and I to get their during the week due to our work schedules. Instead we met with Nick at our preliminary meeting and I requested him as our day of DJ. Nick is so chill, he reminds me of my husband. I am on the other hand am the polar opposite of that and it was very clear to me that Nick knew how to handle a bride like myself. Out of everything we planned my husband and I were the most neurotic when it came to the music. We literally handpicked every song. I had a certain song I wanted to walk down the aisle to, as most brides do, but I needed the doors to open at a specific mark and I wasn't willing to accept that it might not happen. Nick made it happen. That was not the only song I requested be started at a certain time and again, Nick made it all happen. He's just so seasoned it does this without even missing a beat. He also saved the day and toasted my husband and I when the best man went on a tangent and forgot to do so. lol Good looking out Nick! Their prices are not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for folks. I'm so glad I went with them rather than saving $200/$300 and going with one of their competitors. I had no worries because I knew I was in good hands.
Where do I start...first and foremost, Fantasy Sound did an excellent job on our Easter Sunday wedding at the Palm Event Center. Nick was great and always reassured that he will take care of us and ease our minds since we had so many things to do the day of as bride and groom.
Nick played a variety of Vitamin String Quart for the Ceremony back ground music as our family and friends arrived. Very beautiful and classy tunes for a perfect weather for an outside Easter Sunday wedding.
Once the ceremony was done into cocktail hour and rite before all our guest eyes, the ballroom was revealed and the gorgeous lighting, GOBO pattern that Fantasy Sound created for the dance floor and the monogram of both of our names was beautifully placed on the wall above the wine barrels.
From the meetings with had with Nick, seeing it on paper is one thing. Our first look once we got to the venue was breath taking and a note to all future bride and grooms...Fantasy Sound is the BEST and worth every single penny!!!
Thank you Nick, Dana and all of Fantasy Sound staff for making our wedding day a perfection!!!
Mr. & Mrs. Long
Nick was our DJ and we could not have asked for a better person! He was knowledgeable and gave us many suggestions during the planning process for how to make the music and night flow better. He was patient while we waited until the last minute to pick some of the songs. Our guests had so much fun dancing!
I recently got married and used this company for our wedding DJ. I could not be happier with this company and Nick (our DJ)! We had heard they were great from our friends who used them at their wedding and decided to check them out. Everyone we worked with at Fantasy Sound during our wedding planning process was awesome and super helpful! We selected Nick as our DJ and honestly he was fantastic! He helped pick songs for us when we hit a wall on what to use during our ceremony and at the wedding made the night flow so smoothly! If you are looking for a DJ...look no further! Fantasy Sound is amazing!!
Our DJ was Robert from Fantasy events. I LOVED him!! We met for coffee before the wedding and he was great. He has a terrific energy and really got the crowd dancing. My husband and I had selected some songs we liked for dancing and Robert (politely) told us they weren't exactly going to bring down the house. We turned over the song list to him and he really made it happen! He worked hard to keep everything flowing nicely and kept us on track. He is a super nice guy and felt like a friend by the end! The staff at Fantasy is extremely professional and great! They responded to emails quickly and were very organized and helpful. I would definitely recommend them (and Robert!)
Our September 14th,2013 wedding at The Palm Event Center in Pleasanton was beautiful! The lighting and drapery took our breath away! As soon as we walked into our venue, we were in awe of how the romantic and classy vision we had became reality. From the intimate ceremony lighting to the rustic, elegant reception set up...they were all perfect! Guests are still complementing on how beautiful the wedding was and how the lighting and chiffon drapery added an extra elegant touch to our wedding. The ceremony and reception gobo's, pin spotting, and candle chandeliers...LOVE! The staff are all super friendly. There was never any hesitation on answering questions or provide you information you may need. They are great with giving their professional suggestions... make planning a breeze! Thank you Fantasy Sound! Job well done! Kevin you are awesome!
When we first met with Fantasy Sound we knew very quickly that would go with their services. From the start all of the DJs were professional, listened to what we wanted, and helped us identify ways to improve our wedding day. We ended up choosing Nick as our DJ and he did an amazing job. He helped keep the day flowing, working well with our other vendors, and checking in with my husband and I to keep things flowing. We had given Nick a small list of music that must be played and the rest we just gave him ideas for genres of music. He did an amazing job. We got so many compliments on the music and how much fun people had on the dance floor!
We also used Fantasy Sound for our uplights and they truly added to the room and the ambiance for the evening. Pricing was totally reasonable on these services and working with the staff to make it happen was very easy.
I would definitely recommend going with Fantasy Sound for any of your DJ or lighting needs.
My lighting and audio were amazing. We had an outside wedding and everything stood up amazingly against the wind, etc.
DJ was great - let my husband and I customize where we wanted and took care of the details I wasn't too particular on. It was great.
The whole company really makes you feel like you and your wedding day is importanat.
My husband and I just got married this past Saturday night. DJ Rob was amazing!! We met with him weeks before and he really made my husband and I feel at ease for our big day. Rob made sure the whole event ran smoothly and had had all of our guests up and dancing. We also rented the photo booth through Fantasy Sound and it was a huge hit!! Dana did a great job keeping the booth up and running all night. Our wedding was one for the books and I owe a lot of the credit to Dana and DJ Rob.
Fantasy sound was on our venue's preferred vendor list. When we went to meet with Kevin, we instantly knew why they were on the preferred vendor list! The staff was amazing!! We met with Kevin and my fiance at the time asked if he Dj'd and Kevin told him yes and instantly my fiance said I want him to DJ our wedding!! Every interaction we had with the team was great. They were very helpful throughout the entire process! They were easy to get ahold of and would always get back to us in less 24hrs if we emailed them! Our wedding was June 29, 2013! The fantasy sound team did an amazing job, from the lighting over the tables to the lighting over the bar to the gobos!!! And of course we can not forget the awesome Djing by Kevin himself!! It was perfect, beautiful, and amazing!! We walked into the room as we were being announced and all I could was gush over how beautiful the room looked!! It was everything and them some that I had dreamed of our day to be!! It could not have been more perfect!! I can not wait to see what Jillian did with our video!! If there is one thing I am glad we did it would be to have a videographer!! The day went by way too fast and I know I missed a lot, but Im so glad she was there to capture it so I can see everything!! I would use them over and over again!!
