Had a great experience with MCR. Given that John does not do Indian weddings very often, we were not totally sure what to expect, but when we told him we wanted him to get creative with a rustic theme, he certainly delivered in a huge way. Simple, yet elegant...exactly what we... Read More wanted! John Phillips has a creative eye, and if you hire him and his crew, I'm sure that you'll see this as well.

We used MCR productions for our uplighting and DJ for our wedding on 9/2/17. They did a fantastic job from start to finish. John is always readily available to coordinate everything and answer any questions you may have throughout the planning process. DJ Kenton was fantastic!...

This company makes planning your wedding music so easy with a simple online form and music database you can fill out. We had a blush uplighting which really made the whole room look that much more stunning! I would highly recommend MCR Productions!

MCR Productions has by far exceeded my expectations. Never did I think I could have the wedding of my dreams in Scranton, PA. They transformed the Radisson Hotel into a mystical blue crystal wonderland! The hotel is beautiful on its own, so to have transformed it so elegantly... Read More beyond words was a job only MCR could have done. I heard my guests say "I was at a wedding here a few weeks ago and tonight I feel like I am in a completely different place!" With MCR, I did not have worries about anything. John Phillips made suggestions throughout our meetings and let me tell you; his ideas are out of this world! I was allowed to say "No" to him as well; we only ended up with what we wanted and could fit in our budget. We used new acrylic tables for the head table and the draping behind us was so beautiful. The entire room was a magical wonderland that made me feel safe and happy on the most important day of my life. I forgot where I was all night; which is what made the night so enchanting for everyone there! the dance floor wasn't empty for a minute (thanks to our DJ who was booked through MCR as well!) THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES. If you're getting married and you're not booking MCR, your wedding will be missing out!

To say I was disappointed with the quality of service from MCR is an understatement. Of all our vendors, John Philips, MCR’s owner, was our worst vendor and unnecessarily large contributor to our wedding stress. While initially liking him, originally intending to use his team... Read More for both lighting and decor, this appeal quickly became distaste as he became more and more unresponsive and disdainful. On multiple occasions John would not return emails or phone call messages within a week, sometimes more. He failed to update invoices upon request and was unprepared for phone call meetings. Furthermore, even after knowing of my discontent, he never apologized or provided a suitable explanation as to his reoccurring behavior. At no point did John provide us with linen/decor options or ranges of prices. It was not until I questioned John months into the process did I learn that there were other cheaper materials available that would still provide the same look and help us maintain our budgetary restrictions. Even after inquiring for a list of options and corresponding prices, these were not presented. After a touring our venue with our florist, my husband and I suspiciously found one of MCR’s rental books in a meeting room, which had never been presented to us even months after working with John and explaining out budget. While we were able to reduce his responsibilities to just lighting, had it not been for the $500 deposit paid to John, we would have canceled on him completely. To top things off, his lighting rep, who was supposed to be present for the entirety of the reception to lower the lighting, skipped out and left us disappointed, having paid for an uneaten vendor meal and not being able to manipulate the lighting brightness.

Very disappointed in our experience with MCR. We drove over an hour to meet with John to discuss flowers and possibly a DJ for our wedding. Upon arrival we learned that John couldn't make the meeting, but arranged for us to meet with an assistant. The assistant was left all of... Read More the wrong information. We understand that things come up and mistakes happen; we could have brushed this off. However, after reiterating everything that was previously discussed over email, the remainder of the 20 minute meeting was spent trying to up-sell us instead of listening and understanding our vision. Even more disappointing, there was no follow up after our meeting like promised. After a week and a half I reached out to John to let him know we did not receive a follow up. He apologized and said he would send us a quote the next day. Three days passed and we still did not receive a follow up. I have reached out numerous times and have not heard back.

MCR handled the lighting at my (now) husband and my wedding this past weekend, and I can't say enough good things about them. We worked with John throughout the process, and he did everything to stay within our budget. From the first phone call to the wedding, he was an absolute... Read More pleasure to work with. We had a very specific, nontraditional vision for our wedding. It was a rave/club theme and we didn't want your standard, cheesy DJ lighting. We knew after our first conversation with John that he got it. He came the day before to set up and test the lighting, then ran everything live the day of. It was perfect. Without the work he put into it, our wedding would not have been what we wanted; he made our vision a reality. Our guests were impressed and had nothing but good things to say. I highly recommend John and MCR, and wouldn't hesitate to use them again on another event.

I truly would recommend working with MCR on any of your wedding needs. They are kind and honest. We had a few moments of being uncertain what to choose in colors etc.. Jenn was always there not to push product on us but to give her honest opinion to ensure we would be happy. A true professional. The quality of the rentals we utilized were top notch. Our guests were blown away with the effect of the uplighting I really cannot say enough positive comments about our experience. I am so grateful we didn't consider attempting the "DIY" route. It was worth every penny to have such an organized planning process and it turn out gorgeous. We had the enjoyment of having DJ John A for our cocktail hour and reception. He made sure he kept the party going! He was by no means a cliche wedding DJ. John was great at reading the dance floor and knowing when to throw in a different genre of songs to pull more people out dancing. I have never had so much fun in my life! I was genuinely impressed with John's fun personality and how special he made our wedding.

It gave him and his team ample amount of time to strategize and come up with the perfect day for me!! MCR provided my linens, up lighting, center pieces, photo booth and DJ for my wedding. All were nothing less than spectacular. My tables were navy blue, silver/white with a pop of yellow. The MCR hit the nail on the head when they worked with my florist to design the tables. The lanterns and “Mai-Tree” worked perfectly. A little bit of preppy rustic just as I had envisioned. Our photo booth was a HUGE hit with our guests! I got to customize a lot of the screens that were displayed to my guests. I am in love with monograms and it was a theme to my wedding. MCR let me plop my monogram on just about every screen imaginable to be able to personalize. I was also able to choose 2x6 photo strips one for guests one for us. As I look back to the photo album I cannot stop laughing at all the great photos. We had DJ Marquis as a DJ – he got me. He understood everything I wanted. He worked with me closely to ensure it was everything I wanted. He also played a traditional Vietnamese song for my father daughter dance that everyone loved. John was always available night or day if I had questions or concerns. His team was very responsive to the million emails that I sent. I cannot say how much easier they made my day.. or 886 days leading up to my wedding. From the start I felt like I was in good hands. MCR is the way to go!! Thank you for making October 3rd a day to remember!! 
