We found Elegant Occasions to be absolutely wonderful.

5/ 5

Prior to the wedding, we met to see samples, gauge our needs and and see how best to meet our budget. The staff touched base with us periodically throughout the reception. We got a disc with our images and a website to send our family to. The video was better that I imagined and the DJ kept the party going all night. The best part was that the PRICES WERE EXTREMELY REASONABLE! Every wedding I have ever been to has had astronomical prices for photos, video and DJ’s but they gave me a package with all three! I recommend them highly!

Elegant Occasions was such a pleasure to work with! They were extremely helpful in not only the planning process, but giving me general money saving tips for my wedding. They created a photo package that was custom for my specific needs, and budget. The photographer was very comfortable to work with and was always on top of communicating with me during the event. The videographer was a pleasure and the DJ outstanding! I now have amazing engagement and wedding photos! You can’t go wrong when choosing Elegant Occasions for your special events!

Amazing wedding!

5/ 5

What an amazing experience thanks to our photographer, Brian, and our DJ, John! I highly recommend both of them. First and foremost they were both open and understanding that we were 2 brides. They listened to all of our ideas and details that we wanted. Brian exceeded our expectations with the sunset pictures! They were breathtaking! John got everyone on the dance floor and kept a great flow throughout the night. I could not have been happier with their services!

This team was absolutely amazing!! We didn’t have to worry about a thing all night! Our DJ Bryan, with his upbeat personality, accommodated our every request, played the perfect music during every part of our evening, and kept everyone dancing until the very end!! We had SO many compliments from our guests about what a great DJ we had!! Our photo and video team, Bryan and Edwin were all over the place, capturing every moment with enthusiasm! They kept us involved in the decision making and made sure we didn’t miss any of our perfect shots! Bill, our officiant was professional, patient, and sincere. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better evening, and these guys played a HUGE part in how memorable it was! We highly recommend Elegant Occasions!!!

Did a great job on our same sex commitment ceremony!

5/ 5

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.

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.

Love Elegant Occasions!

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.

We can't begin to say enough wonderful things about Elegant Occasions!

5/ 5

From the very beginning they were incredibly professional answering all of my questions (and trust me…I had a ton!) promptly. Elegant Occasions doesn’t have standard packages like most photographers. Instead, we were able to customize a package that was 100% perfect for us and what we were looking for. On our wedding day, the photographer was completely unobtrusive, but yet when we got our pictures, you would of sworn he was standing in the center of every event to get the best pictures! As we looked through our images, my husband and I literally laughed and cried as the pictures took us through the entire evening all over again. The photos captured the story of the most important night of our lives PERFECTLY! What a wonderful company photographer and artist!!

We loved Bill Crane, from Elegant Occasions!

4.8/ 5

Our friends used Elegant Occasions for their wedding and we were told the DJ & Officiant, Bill Crane, did an amazing job. In the end we decided to go with Bill as our officiant and was VERY pleased. He has a very soothing but articulate voice that was perfect. We integrated our own poem into something he gave us for the ceremony and he pulled it off as though he knew it by heart. I’ll be recommending his services to everyone I know!!

Elegant Occasions and DJ

5/ 5

The best way to describe our 4/3/14 weekend wedding experience at the Embassy Suites in Deerfield Beach, Florida with Brian Coffmann as our DJ from Elegant Occasions is “over the top!” Our DJ, Brian Coffmann is just plain the best wedding DJ in the world! He did our music on the beach board for the ceremony, the music for our outdoor cocktail hour and then for the indoor dinner and dance. The set up was done ahead of time, music played on cue. We were in good hands as he took the lead in getting the guests to the ballroom in a timely manner, to lining up the wedding party for their entrance. Cuing the father of the bride, maid of honor and best man for their speeches for smooth transitions, to getting the party started! He kept the dance floor full the entire night. He was out on the dance floor, himself, giving line dancing instructions to those of us that needed some remedial classes. He was sensational, energetic and so much fun! He made the garter toss and bouquet toss suspenseful and hilarious as well. Coming back to Deerfield Beach, from Iowa, for our children’s wedding this time, the thing that was most important to our son and his future wife, was for the guests to have a great time. And they did! Since we live in Iowa and were coming to Florida for the wedding, research was done, phone calls were made and websites were looked at. Elegant Occasions offered several different packages and they had the perfect one for our needs. We needed ceremony music on the beachboard walk, outdoor cocktail hour music and of course, reception and dance music. Bill Crane at Elegant Occasions was very prompt in returning phone calls and emails. When we arrived in Florida 3 days before the wedding to meet with the DJ that Elegant Occasion felt would be the “best fit” for us. Thank goodness it was Brian Coffmann! One thousand stars for him, he is a true entertainer for a crowd setting.-Jackie and Allan Reinig-Iowa, parents of the groom.Comments

Team Bryan

5/ 5

We chose Elegant Occasions for the music and photography for our wedding, and we are very pleased at the treatment that we received. From day one, Bill was professional and informative about all of the different packages they have to offer. I also liked the online worksheets that we were given to work on. This made picking out the songs and ironing out all the small details less stressful. Bill also took the time to answer all of our questions, and discuss with us our selections on the worksheets prior to the event. For the day of our wedding we chose “Team Bryan,” Bryan the photographer, and Bryan the DJ. We were very pleased with this selection and they worked great together. Bryan the photographer did a fabulous job at getting in all of those special shots that we wanted; he even brought a print out of all of the pictures to make sure. He was great at organizing all of the pictures and getting shots of us with all of our guests. He makes you feel comfortable while you are posing for pictures, and getting those natural smiles. Bryan the DJ did a fabulous job on keeping our guests on the dance floor. He did a great job orchestrating the bouquet toss, garter toss, cake cutting, etc. We were told by our guests that the music during cocktail hour and the reception was great. We had so much fun dancing! Go Team Bryan! I would definitely reccomend Elegant Occasions to a friend.

Elegant Occasions Photographer

5/ 5

Our photographer Bryan at Elegant Occasions was the best ever for our son and daughter-in-laws wedding!!! My husband and I were also married beachside at Deerfield Beach 9 years ago. We went with a “cheaply priced” photographer and got really below par photos. In fact the best photo of our wedding was one that we had taken ourselves the day after the wedding with a tripod and our own camera. That is the photo on the wall today. Coming back to Deerfield Beach, from Iowa, for our children’s wedding, we learned that we wanted GREAT photos. Knowing that shooting into the sun against the ocean can sometimes be tricky and make for “shadows on faces,” we wanted an experienced photographer, and we got the best!. Everything was set up online, as we all live in the Midwest. Research was done, phone calls were made and websites were looked at. Elegant Occasions offered several different packages and they had the perfect one for our needs. They were very prompt in retuning phone calls and emails. When we arrived in Florida 3 days before the wedding to meet with the photographer that Elegant Occasion felt would be the best “fit” for us, we had no idea of how sensational Bryan Hemedinger would be. From our first meeting, his personality, open mindedness to our requests as well as suggestions that he made, we felt confident in the decision that we had made choosing him. This is our second child to get married in 6 months and we had been “soured” by the photographer at the previous wedding experience, so we had been a little anxious about not meeting the “all-important” person to capture our memories till about zero hour. He arrived early- a big plus! He made our shy bride feel at ease very quickly. The work sheet, plus extra requests made ahead of time, made the flow very smooth. Formals were done quickly and smoothly and there was plently of time for fun pictures on the beach. Lovely detailed close-ups! Capturing the first look! Romantic personal pictures! Just amazing! We were able to view our pictures fairly promptly online and received the CD of pics quickly. The pictures were better that I could of dreamed of!

The BEST IN SOUTH FLORIDA !!!

5/ 5

Several months ago my wife and I had looked around quite a bit to try to find a vendor that could take care of the photography and musical needs for our wedding. We are from Orlando and were having our wedding in Ft. Lauderdale so we needed someone we felt comfortable with that could handle our plans. From the moment we walked into Elegant Occasion’s new office, we found them to be very professional and warm. Our initial visit was with Bill Crane and immediately we knew that we were in the right place. We were very impressed as he took us directly on a tour of their facility. While going over our “wish list”, Bill listened and provided us with excellent advise. There is no pressure to sell you anything from their staff. Their prices are great given the “high” quality of service that they provide. Leading up to the wedding he was always prompt in answering our questions or returning our calls. We had a minor issue …. which at the time seemed HUGE … that he and the staff assured us would be quickly handled. They resolved it and made my wife immensely happy. For our wedding we got Fabio as our photographer and Brain as our DJ/Master of Ceremony. Bill told us that we were getting two of the best and they did not let us down. Both were complete PROFESSIONALS at their crafts. Fabio was a visionary in the pictures that he staged and took …. he was AWESOME !!! We just got our CD back with the pictures he took and he did not let us down. The quality of the pictures reflect some of the BEST PICTURES WE HAVE EVER SEEN !!! Brain’s DJ of the wedding reception was just as good too. He was entertaining, timely and well spoken. His coordination with us before and during the reception was TOTALLY FIRST CLASS !!! Our reception went off without a problem. Their handling of our wedding was so outstanding that it made it a very fun, stress less and enjoyable day. We can’t wait to see how our wedding album turns out. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Elegant Occasions as a wedding vendor without hesitation. Don’t waste your time with anyone else !!! Thanks Bill and the staff at Elegant Occasions for making our Wedding day a very specially joyous and memorable one.

Ask about discounts for teachers!!!

I was delighted to find out that Elegant Occasions gives a discount to teachers as well as police, firefighters and those in the military. I am very happy with the quality of the work I have seen and the price is reasonable for what you get. I also like that someone always answers the phone (I got so aggravated calling vendors, leaving a voice mail then waiting a day or two for a call back). Everyone was on time and very professional.

I just wanted (actually, I felt compelled) to take a few minutes to tell everyone how absolutely AMAZING our wedding album turned out. I couldn’t be any happier with it. We gave the parent albums to our parents and they all fell in love with them too. None of them had ever seen a wedding album like it. They showed their friends and they said the same thing. I brought mine to work and all of my coworkers said the same thing too. I think Elegant Occasions is amazing at what they do, and if we ever need professional photographers again…although hopefully never for another wedding ;-)…we’ll definitely look their way.

They provided us the officiant, photography, lighting and DJ/MC and everything turned out great! The DJ and MC were super accommodating with song requests and turned the reception into the party we wanted. Also, a big thanks to the owner Wayne for personally checking in before the wedding and making sure we got everything we needed. We definitely would recommend Elegant Occasions!

Wedding Success!!!

5/ 5

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.

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.

Elegant Occasions was amazing!

5/ 5

We had our engagement session and wedding reception on different days, and we were very fortunate that the same photographer was able to be our photographer for both events! From the first meeting where we discussed what services we’d like for our wedding and what we want to spend, to the amazing music for the reception, the stunning beautiful photos of the wedding, and the cinematic video, we were very impressed with their work! I’m not a person who’s typically comfortable being in front of a camera, so Elegant Occasions’ style of "capturing the moment" instead of forcing poses really worked for us. The lighting was perfect, and I LOVE the creative photos they took – very unexpected, yet some of my favorite ones by far! Apart from their very friendly demeanor, fabulous photos, and professionalism, I loved that they were so easy to get in touch with. Any time I called I got a live person to talk to, even late at night! That level of communication and commitment really blew me away!! We have told so many of our friends and family about them, and we’ll definitely be calling them the next time we have an event!

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 chose to use EO for my wedding because as I was looking for a venue every time a venue gave me a copy of their preferred vendors list, EO was on it. I visited their office for the first time and was totally impressed with their work and everything they had to offer. I booked them for just about everything in my wedding. I called several times throughout the process with questions and constant changes and every time EO left me with a warm feeling that they were going to do everything I wanted exactly how I wanted it. They made good on this and did an amazing job! The DJ, MC, photographers, and videographers were all very fun, pleasant, and professional. I could not be happier with the job that they did and have already recommended them to my engaged friends. I cannot thank you guys enough for making the party so much fun and producing beautiful pictures and video!

Great Experience

5/ 5

I met with Bill Crane at Elegant Occasions 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.

5/ 5

We got married at Parkland Golf and Country Club on May 4, 2013 and Elegant Occasions was our one-stop shop for so many of our wedding needs. Devorah was amazing and was ALWAYS available to answer our questions, as well as willing to work with our budget. They provided us the officiant, photography, lighting and DJ/MC and everything turned out great! The DJ and MC were super accommodating with song requests and turned the reception into the party we wanted. Also, a big thanks to the owner Wayne for personally checking in before the wedding and making sure we got everything we needed. We definitely would recommend Elegant Occasions!

5/ 5

I had the Bryan and Brian combination who were just outstanding. I have had multiple family and friends use Elegant Occasions so I knew they were going to do a fabulous job! Bryan had the party going all night and everyone was up out of their seat. We had multiple people tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and that was because of them! Highly recommended!!

Dream wedding!

5/ 5

Our wedding was so greatly enhanced by our experience working with Elegant Occasions. Not only was the staff incredibly helpful at every turn but, they went the extra mile to give us such personalized service. We used Elegant Occasions for videography and lighting. Our video came out incredible, far exceeding our expectations. We feel like we will have a fairy tale to watch for years to come. Our venue was really darkly lit before we brought in the lighting team at Elegant Occasions. The end product was beautiful! Thank you Elegant Occasions.

We can't begin to say enough wonderful things about Elegant Occasions!

5/ 5

From the very beginning they were incredibly professional answering all of my questions (and trust me…I had a ton!) promptly. Elegant Occasions doesn’t have standard packages like most photographers. Instead, we were able to customize a package that was 100% perfect for us and what we were looking for. On our wedding day, the photographer was completely unobtrusive, but yet when we got our pictures, you would of sworn he was standing in the center of every event to get the best pictures! As we looked through our images, my husband and I literally laughed and cried as the pictures took us through the entire evening all over again. The photos captured the story of the most important night of our lives PERFECTLY! What a wonderful company photographer and artist!!

We loved Bill Crane, from Elegant Occasions!

4.8/ 5

Our friends used Elegant Occasions for their wedding and we were told the DJ & Officiant, Bill Crane, did an amazing job. In the end we decided to go with Bill as our officiant and was VERY pleased. He has a very soothing but articulate voice that was perfect. We integrated our own poem into something he gave us for the ceremony and he pulled it off as though he knew it by heart. I’ll be recommending his services to everyone I know!!

Elegant Occasions and DJ

5/ 5

The best way to describe our 4/3/14 weekend wedding experience at the Embassy Suites in Deerfield Beach, Florida with Brian Coffmann as our DJ from Elegant Occasions is “over the top!” Our DJ, Brian Coffmann is just plain the best wedding DJ in the world! He did our music on the beach board for the ceremony, the music for our outdoor cocktail hour and then for the indoor dinner and dance. The set up was done ahead of time, music played on cue. We were in good hands as he took the lead in getting the guests to the ballroom in a timely manner, to lining up the wedding party for their entrance. Cuing the father of the bride, maid of honor and best man for their speeches for smooth transitions, to getting the party started! He kept the dance floor full the entire night. He was out on the dance floor, himself, giving line dancing instructions to those of us that needed some remedial classes. He was sensational, energetic and so much fun! He made the garter toss and bouquet toss suspenseful and hilarious as well. Coming back to Deerfield Beach, from Iowa, for our children’s wedding this time, the thing that was most important to our son and his future wife, was for the guests to have a great time. And they did! Since we live in Iowa and were coming to Florida for the wedding, research was done, phone calls were made and websites were looked at. Elegant Occasions offered several different packages and they had the perfect one for our needs. We needed ceremony music on the beachboard walk, outdoor cocktail hour music and of course, reception and dance music. Bill Crane at Elegant Occasions was very prompt in returning phone calls and emails. When we arrived in Florida 3 days before the wedding to meet with the DJ that Elegant Occasion felt would be the “best fit” for us. Thank goodness it was Brian Coffmann! One thousand stars for him, he is a true entertainer for a crowd setting.-Jackie and Allan Reinig-Iowa, parents of the groom.Comments

Team Bryan

5/ 5

We chose Elegant Occasions for the music and photography for our wedding, and we are very pleased at the treatment that we received. From day one, Bill was professional and informative about all of the different packages they have to offer. I also liked the online worksheets that we were given to work on. This made picking out the songs and ironing out all the small details less stressful. Bill also took the time to answer all of our questions, and discuss with us our selections on the worksheets prior to the event. For the day of our wedding we chose “Team Bryan,” Bryan the photographer, and Bryan the DJ. We were very pleased with this selection and they worked great together. Bryan the photographer did a fabulous job at getting in all of those special shots that we wanted; he even brought a print out of all of the pictures to make sure. He was great at organizing all of the pictures and getting shots of us with all of our guests. He makes you feel comfortable while you are posing for pictures, and getting those natural smiles. Bryan the DJ did a fabulous job on keeping our guests on the dance floor. He did a great job orchestrating the bouquet toss, garter toss, cake cutting, etc. We were told by our guests that the music during cocktail hour and the reception was great. We had so much fun dancing! Go Team Bryan! I would definitely reccomend Elegant Occasions to a friend.

I booked their EO Studios division for photography and videography.

5/ 5

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.

Elegant Occasions was amazing!

5/ 5

We had our engagement session and wedding reception on different days, and we were very fortunate that the same photographer was able to be our photographer for both events! From the first meeting where we discussed what services we’d like for our wedding and what we want to spend, to the amazing music for the reception, the stunning beautiful photos of the wedding, and the cinematic video, we were very impressed with their work! I’m not a person who’s typically comfortable being in front of a camera, so Elegant Occasions’ style of "capturing the moment" instead of forcing poses really worked for us. The lighting was perfect, and I LOVE the creative photos they took – very unexpected, yet some of my favorite ones by far! Apart from their very friendly demeanor, fabulous photos, and professionalism, I loved that they were so easy to get in touch with. Any time I called I got a live person to talk to, even late at night! That level of communication and commitment really blew me away!! We have told so many of our friends and family about them, and we’ll definitely be calling them the next time we have an event!

Alls well that ends well!

5/ 5

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.

5/ 5

I chose to use EO for my wedding because as I was looking for a venue every time a venue gave me a copy of their preferred vendors list, EO was on it. I visited their office for the first time and was totally impressed with their work and everything they had to offer. I booked them for just about everything in my wedding. I called several times throughout the process with questions and constant changes and every time EO left me with a warm feeling that they were going to do everything I wanted exactly how I wanted it. They made good on this and did an amazing job! The DJ, MC, photographers, and videographers were all very fun, pleasant, and professional. I could not be happier with the job that they did and have already recommended them to my engaged friends. I cannot thank you guys enough for making the party so much fun and producing beautiful pictures and video!

Great Experience

5/ 5

I met with Bill Crane at Elegant Occasions 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.

The BEST IN SOUTH FLORIDA !!!

5/ 5

Several months ago my wife and I had looked around quite a bit to try to find a vendor that could take care of the photography and musical needs for our wedding. We are from Orlando and were having our wedding in Ft. Lauderdale so we needed someone we felt comfortable with that could handle our plans. From the moment we walked into Elegant Occasion’s new office, we found them to be very professional and warm. Our initial visit was with Bill Crane and immediately we knew that we were in the right place. We were very impressed as he took us directly on a tour of their facility. While going over our “wish list”, Bill listened and provided us with excellent advise. There is no pressure to sell you anything from their staff. Their prices are great given the “high” quality of service that they provide. Leading up to the wedding he was always prompt in answering our questions or returning our calls. We had a minor issue …. which at the time seemed HUGE … that he and the staff assured us would be quickly handled. They resolved it and made my wife immensely happy. For our wedding we got Fabio as our photographer and Brain as our DJ/Master of Ceremony. Bill told us that we were getting two of the best and they did not let us down. Both were complete PROFESSIONALS at their crafts. Fabio was a visionary in the pictures that he staged and took …. he was AWESOME !!! We just got our CD back with the pictures he took and he did not let us down. The quality of the pictures reflect some of the BEST PICTURES WE HAVE EVER SEEN !!! Brain’s DJ of the wedding reception was just as good too. He was entertaining, timely and well spoken. His coordination with us before and during the reception was TOTALLY FIRST CLASS !!! Our reception went off without a problem. Their handling of our wedding was so outstanding that it made it a very fun, stress less and enjoyable day. We can’t wait to see how our wedding album turns out. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Elegant Occasions as a wedding vendor without hesitation. Don’t waste your time with anyone else !!! Thanks Bill and the staff at Elegant Occasions for making our Wedding day a very specially joyous and memorable one.

Ask about discounts for teachers!!!

5/ 5

I was delighted to find out that Elegant Occasions gives a discount to teachers as well as police, firefighters and those in the military. I am very happy with the quality of the work I have seen and the price is reasonable for what you get. I also like that someone always answers the phone (I got so aggravated calling vendors, leaving a voice mail then waiting a day or two for a call back). Everyone was on time and very professional.

AMAZING!!!

5/ 5

I just wanted (actually, I felt compelled) to take a few minutes to tell everyone how absolutely AMAZING our wedding album turned out. I couldn’t be any happier with it. We gave the parent albums to our parents and they all fell in love with them too. None of them had ever seen a wedding album like it. They showed their friends and they said the same thing. I brought mine to work and all of my coworkers said the same thing too. I think Elegant Occasions is amazing at what they do, and if we ever need professional photographers again…although hopefully never for another wedding ;-)…we’ll definitely look their way.

Wedding Success!!!

5/ 5

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.
