Ultimate Party Central exceeded every expectation. After having attended numerous weddings, my husband and I knew what we wanted and UPC made our dreams come to life. In our initial meeting Nick listened to our wants and provided us with options. Nick explained the entire night to us and how things were to run so we felt comfortable and confident. Throughout the planning process Nick and Tara always responded to our inquires. It became absolutely clear that they're focus was on making us happy and making sure we were satisfied with our decisions. At our wedding, UPC absolutely blew us away. The presentation was impeccable and the music was perfect! UPC kept everyone dancing. To this day, my husband and I still have guests tell us how much fun they had at our wedding...and we have Nick and Tara to thank for that.
If your looking for a professional, reasonable and quality DJ to hire for your wedding Ultimate Party Central is your only choice. Nick and Tara are amazing as is their entire staff. There is not one thing I would change about the music, the set up, the dancing or the MC. They really are the best DJ company in NJ.
Ultimate Party Central was absolutely amazing. I found them online and called to schedule an appointment after seeing all the outstanding reviews. We met for a meeting with TARA who was AMAZING she was so helpful, friendly and easy to talk too, very professional and knew exactly what i wanted and how i wanted it! After the meeting i met with a couple other companies and could not forget ultimate party central. I then quickly booked with them not only because of their amazing prices but because I felt comfortable leaving such an important day in their hands. I booked UPC for DJ, Photo/Votobooth and Videography and I am so happy i did!
My wedding was absolutely wonderful thanks to them. I was so happy my HUSBAND and I are so thankful for everything. Tara was great, she answered my calls and emails immediately and Nick was great to work with as well. They are on top of their business and know exactly how to please their customers. We received so many complements on our Same Day Edit, Music and our extremely memorable first dance ( dancing on the clouds ). It was so great to see our day unfold right in front of our eyes in front of all of our closest family and friends for the Same Day Edit. It was extremely memorable and touching video .
The entire wedding process is very overwhelming but to be honest I left it up to UPC to do their job and the exceeded my expectations. The best thing you can do as a Bride is book UPC!
I could not have asked for a better photographer to work with than Tara at UPC! I only have a sneak preview so far of my wedding pictures but I'm completely blown away. We did our engagement shoot with her, wedding and soon to be trash the dress session. I cannot wait! Will definitely use and recommend UPC in the future! My only regret is not using their other services for my wedding!
The photo booth was a huge hit at our wedding. It was so much fun and everyone had a great time, especially using the props. I used Ultimate Party Central for photography and DJ also and they were just amazing. It was really nice to use a company that has many services and is also a great team. I would highly recommend them for all your party needs.
My husband and I used UPC for almost everything and they were amazing!!!!!! Our DJ was out of this world! The dance floor was packed the whole night!!! The photographers made us feel so comfortable and the photos turned out beautiful!!!! (A special thank you to Tara!!) Last but not least, the photo booth was a huge hit!! All the guests had so much fun!!! UPC is the best!!! You won't regret it!!! We couldn't be happier!!!!
The staff at UPC is the best in the industry. Complete professionals who are willing to work with you to make your day better than you dreamed. Tara, Nick, Mike.. I couldn't have asked for a better crew to make our dreams a reality. Superb professionalism and creativity. So accommodating and willing to do whatever it takes for the bride and groom to be happy. It rained for our wedding day and Tara went above and beyond to make sure I got my 'beach' pictures I had been dreaming of. If you don't book them for ALL their services, you are ASKING for mediocre.
UPC was the best! I wish I could replay my wedding EVERY day!
My husband and I worked with ultimate party central on our wedding day. They provided photography/ dj/ photobooth/ and videography services. We were extremely pleased with all the services we received especially the photographer tara. She made us feel very comfortable throughout the process and really worked us to ensure we got all the photos we needed. Our dj nick was very energetic n kept the crowd going despite it being a day wedding. I would highly recommend ultimate party central services. They were friendly affordable and provided great services
Tara and Nick are amazing at what they do. You will not be disappointed!!!
We could not have asked for a better experience than the one we had with Ultimate Party Central. For our wedding, my husband and I opted for the package that included DJ, photography, videography, and photo booth services, and we are still raving about all of them. The DJ, Nick, and emcee, Mike, had our guests dancing within 5 minutes – their energy was contagious and the guests just couldn’t resist. Everyone was having such a blast so quickly that Nick and Mike had trouble getting them to sit down for dinner. They followed all of our music selections and also provided a set of their own that spanned decades and included something for everyone – really amazing. Tara was our photographer and primary contact throughout the whole process. She is responsive, down to earth, and super friendly, and she really captured every moment of our big day without being overwhelming at all. Our pictures came out absolutely beautiful thanks to her. Our videographer, Kurt, also amazed us with what he put together. When we watched our wedding video we were brought right back to all the amazing moments of the day, and the DVD itself is gorgeous. The photo booth was a huge hit, and it provides not only a really fun time, but also your guest book (SO funny to look through) and potential favors since everyone gets to keep one of the photo strips. Everything is so high-quality and well put-together, and you can just feel how passionate they all are about what they do. They were like family members by the end of the night, and we are so thrilled that we chose them. I 100% recommend UPC for any event!
UPC knows how to get the party started ... and keep it going!!!!!! Nick was such an amazing DJ. We spoke before the wedding so that he understood our vision, and it felt like we knew him our whole lives. He communicated perfectly with us, and knew what we wanted, and EXECUTED IT PERFECTLY!!! He played the best mix of music to keep everyone out on the dance floor all night! He was complimented by an MC who was AMAZING! Most MCs I hear at weddings, talk too much and promote their company too much -- but that was not the case here! He was so much fun, and knew exactly when to talk - never promoting UPC, because their work spoke for itself. We had such a fun night dancing the night away because of UPC and we couldn't be happier. We weren't ever a client or another name on a list or a dollar sign to Nick ... we were respected and treated so nicely -- it was like an instant connection -- family!!!!!
I am so happy I chose UPC for my 10-11-13 wedding! UPC was extremely professional throughout the entire process. They were the first company for these services we met with and we chose them immediately. Tara answered all of my questions and then some. She had videos, pictures, and wedding albums of all different styles to show us when we were there. I told her the kind of music I was interested in and she was able to immediately pull up a sample from a previous wedding they did, which matched exactly what I wanted.
Anytime I had to call or email Tara, if she was unable to answer she ALWAYS got back to me the same day.
They have a website where you can add songs you definitely want and definitely do not want played which was 100% followed. Her husband Nick, our MC, and videographer were also great. we had so many compliments from all of our guests during and after the wedding about them.
Everyone was on time and I did not have a worry about a thing with UPC.
Tara was our photographer and took the most beautiful pictures...my husband and I are NOT photogenic but she managed to make us look great on our wedding day. My bridal attendant even told me that Tara took pictures in locations that were so creative that other photographers hadn't done. Our pictures were done very efficiently. I don't like to waste time, so I was happy that our pictures were awesome, we got a ton of them, and I was still able to enjoy my cocktail hour and reception (we got married at our venue so right afterwards we had out cocktail hour).
We also chose to do the "first look" pictures. those are just some of my favorites. the moment was captured perfectly between my husband and I.
We received our album and the two albums for our parents, also a CD with every single picture on it so we can print it out later, and a video. Everything looked great, there are no surprises, and we were just extremely pleased from start to finish! Thank you!! :)

We used UPC for our photobooth for our wedding 5/31/14. The photobooth was a great addition to our wedding. Our guests really enjoyed it. The staff also did a great job of moving people through the photobooth so there was never a long line and everyone got to take multiple pictures throughout the night. It was really cool to see the book at the end of the night with all the pictures and the signatures from our friends and family. I highly recommend UPC for a photobooth for your wedding or other party.

UPC provided our photo booth for our wedding on May 30. This was a last minute decision to have as our wedding favor, so I never made it to their office to see the booths in person. Everything was done via e-mail and I just hoped for the best. Let me tell you, I got what I hoped for. It was the least expensive price, but the best out there. They provide a "memory book" for guests to place one of the two copies of their photos in and write a note, so it serves as a guest book as well. And the attendant assembled the scrap book for me right then and there so I could have it that night. Everything was clean, high tech, and beautiful. It was the highlight of the night and they even provided props at no extra charge. UPC is trustworthy and professional, they exceeded my expectations.
UPC did an amazing job at my wedding. They were extremely flexible and made my night very special. Something fell through last minute and I called Nick immediately and he was able to save the day. I am so happy I used them!
My sister used UPC for her wedding last year and they did a great job so we decided to use them for our photographer, videographer, DJ/MC, and photobooth. It made life so much easier to have just one company that handles all these services for our wedding. Everyone is so nice and so reliable! Tara always responded right away with any questions or requests I had for our wedding. Our DJ and MC were amazing ... the dance floor was filled all night. They really know how to read the crowd and play the right music to keep things going! Our photographer and videographer were also great. They were very friendly and captured our special day at all the right moments. Everyone at our wedding loved the photobooth! The pictures came out great and I love the album they gave us at the end of the night. UPC did a wonderful job on our wedding and I would recommend them for any event!!!
Ultimate Party Central was in one word, AMAZING! I can’t stress enough how easy the entire process was, and hiring them was the best decision I made!
They made the entire crowd happy by going through the decades, but were sure to have the bulk of the music to suit our taste as a couple. Every guest was on the dance floor the entire night! In fact, the majority of our guests commented that it was the best music they have ever heard played at a wedding. Look no further, and hire them immediately for your wedding—you won’t be sorry!
UPC surpassed every expectation! They were reliable and convenient to work with during the planning process, extremely professional and knowledgeable. I was never very good at planning things like this but Tara put me at ease and helped me figure everything out. During the wedding they made sure to catch every special moment and get every shot that was important to us. We were late to the venue because of a big accident and somehow Tara made time for what we planned and kept me calm! The pictures themselves were online almost immediately and we were able to see everything while still on our honeymoon. The photography was gorgeous, creative, and fun, and the videography captured so many funny moments that we almost forgot about until we watched the video (which we also got insanely fast). Also we have the best video and photo albums of anyone i know as far as quality and personal touches. As for the music, I've never seen our families dance as much as they did! I am so happy we went with UPC for every possible reason, the value of the services they provide far exceed the price. You can tell from working with them that they love what they do and that makes all the difference!
5 star! Lauren and I had the time of our life. From start to finish we could not ask for a better experience. UPC was professional and always kept you up to date with what was going on. With all the craziness that goes into a wedding UPC and the entertainment aspect of our wedding was taken care of. It was one less thing we had to worry about and respectively they went above and beyond. From the easy music system they set you up with to the photo booth to the lighting they made everyone talk about how great it was for the week to follow. Anyone looking for entertainment for a wedding UPC is a no brainer! They make you feel important and they make your day exactly how you want it and that's what we got! Thanks again guys your the best hands down
When you get engaged there are so many details you have to take into consideration. I was clueless as to what DJ services to use so I searched and found reviews on bridal websites that brought me to UPC. So hopefully my review helps another bride.
UPC is awesome! From the second I contacted Tara I knew she was very professional and willing to help. When my husband and I met with her she worked with our budget in order to have what we want included. We booked our DJ service and photobooth with UPC.
Nick and Rob were awesome! They kept the party going. Our dance floor was packed all night! The music was geared to all generations. Even to this day our guests are telling us how fun the party was and how awesome the set up for the dj booth was. We even had the 50 inch plasma screens with ZAP photos which our guests loved! It showed photos capture throughout the night. We even have family members getting engaged who are asking about the DJ company we used so they can contact them for their weddings.
The photobooth was AMAZING! Our guests loved it! They had some much fun with the props. We just want to thank UPC for making our wedding day so special!
Ultimate Party Central is just that the ultimate vendor. There professionalism was impeccable. With all the many stresses that come with planning a wedding I had no worries when it came to DJ, Photography, or a MC. Tara and Nick catered to our every need and made sure our day was special.
