Empire Productions was the highlight of our reception! They are truly the best at what they do! I heard compliments all night long as well as weeks later about how great the entertainment was at our wedding! Our dance floor was never empty, everything flowed perfectly, and the photobooth was busy all night long! The uplighting in the room was remarkable and transformed the whole place!Empire Productions puts a unique touch on all the classic reception activities such as the bouquet toss, garter auction, and dollar dance, so your reception is unlike any one else's. Empire Productions are so experienced and are on top of every detail. I did not have to worry about a thing! We loved them so much, my sister also booked them for her wedding next summer! They create an experience that is truly EPIC and one we will never forget!
We worked with Tony from Empire Productions and had a great experience. He was well organized and professional. He kept the crowd into the party the entire night. I would highly recommend Empire Productions for your event.
Thank you Riley for the kind words! Your wedding party and guests were a ton of fun! It was an honor to be apart of your day! On behalf of all of us at Empire Productions, we would like to wish you an Rachel the very best in your future!
We had a very negative experience with Empire Productions. We had originally written a review but it was disputed and taken down. We have since been in touch with Tony the owner, and he has taken responsibility for most that went wrong at our reception and ceremony. We created another account to re-write the review - as the other review only showed about half of what our issues were. We had paid extra for the dancing on the cloud effect and the effect was very underwhelming, Jordan and his assistant agreed it was weak as well. Father-daughter dance - the song cut out for about five seconds, Tony indicates that it was a static pop. I wrote the processional for the wedding and Jordan was to loop it at a certain point until my wife was ready to walk down the aisle-this did not happen as planned. Tony advised Jordan felt like it was looping for too long and said there should have been a separate song for before she walked down and after (which I suggested to Jordan but he did not think it was necessary). Wedding party intros - these were flat out terrible and we received them about five hours before the wedding started. Tony advised it was both his and Jordan's fault. He also advised it should have been done weeks before the wedding. Client - DJ Relationship - this one is confusing. Tony advised we did not have a choice in DJ (our original DJ went to jail, we found out about a month before our wedding) because Jordan was the only one available (he advised one had cancer). In his most recent e-mail he advised that we should have been able to interview both and made a decision on our half because Jordan had "10x" the experience - this clearly did not appear to be the case. Jordan was to act as the master of ceremonies and work behind the scenes to help Maggi & I keep the reception organized and moving - he did not do this. Tony admitted the relationship should have been better between Jordan and us. These complaints were only about half of it.
I rented a photobooth from Empire Productions and on the day of the wedding they decided to just not show up to the reception. There was no number to contact them and inform them of what was happening. I wasn't reach out to until the Tuesday after the wedding by an individual stating excuses of how their employee has never done this before and excuse after excuse. It was supposed to be used as our party favor and a way for us to keep track of everyone that came. That went out the window.
Here is the best part, we used a gift card for the purchase and when they admitting to be in blatant disregard of a once in a lifetime day they only gave us out of pocket and returned the gift card to us. I'm sorry but they were completely at fault and didn't accept any responsibility. Who would ever use a gift card a second time when the first time they didn't feel like showing up. Not to mention we used it for a wedding and I'm not planning on getting married again. Horrible experience and the manager/owner is an arrogant person.
We rented a photo-booth from Empire Productions for our wedding and it was a BIG hit! We set it up right next to the dance floor so there constantly were people lining up to use it. It instantly printed out 2 copies of the pictures so we could keep one and so could the people taking their picture. Overall we were very happy with the process and dealing with Tony to reserve our photo-booth and he also created a background layout for the printed photo strips too. The only downfall to the photo-booth was the person running the system. She was not very professional and didn't take control of the situation.
I want to say that I was positively thrilled about Empire Productions, for the amount of excitement I had when we booked them and the way Tony made us feel secure about our decision. However, I was disappointed with his DJ, Daron. I give him the benefit of the doubt because he had a very pregnant wife waiting for him at home - I felt he was mostly distracted during our reception. We had turned in the paper work and he did a great job in playing the songs we requested, but I remember during the meeting we had with him (which also took awhile to get a hold of him) that the only people he should take instructions from were from us directly or my D.O.C Dawn. We had a snafu with our dessert/pie cutting/toasts that left me feeling completely embarrassed. We never got the uplighting that we were supposed to have (and paid good money for) either.
We still had a great time partying and the majority of my guests enjoyed the dancing. I guess I would have rather had Tony as our DJ, because of the connection we had with him.
Empire Productions is the way to go for any big event! Tony and all his staff are wonderful at what they do! They are kind, professional, punctual, and always there if you need them.Dj, photobooth,monogram, backdrops, and uplighting were all of the highest quality. Empire Productions definitely helped make our special day one we will never forget!! Way to go Empire Productions!!
Empire productions seriously made our night epic! Grant was the best entertainer there is out there. He was so easy to get a hold of and to schedule meetings with. He made it a point to make every detail about the reception about us, and to keep us stress free. Grant kept an amazing line of open communication with us throughout the entire night, keeping us informed of events taking place, and suggesting the next event to keep the night rolling smoothly. Our dance floor was completely bumpin the entire night. Grant played the music we love and got everyone out on the floor! He was so organized all night and kept the reception fun and easy all night long.
The photobooth was also a large hit for our guests! Everyone had so much fun with the props. Our grandparents even got in on the fun! What a way to blend the generations together into one giant fun picture!
We were so honored to have Grant as our entertainer, and our guests really had a great time because of him!
Tony, Allison and Grant were excellent to work with through the whole year process of planning our wedding. He answered our questions and made us feel comfortable talking with him. MOST of all, the whole Empire Productions team made our wedding reception unique to what my husband and I wanted. Allison came up with a unique template for our photo booth based on what we wanted. Tony never pressured us into "extras," or surprised with any hidden fees at the end. We knew what our package price was from the first time we met. If we wanted something, Tony and his team made sure it happened. One of the best parts of the night was when they shined our monogram on the green of the golf course where our reception was held. It was HUGE and so awesome. Our guests really enjoyed everything about our reception and a big thanks to this goes out to Tony and the Empire Productions crew!
Jamie and Charlie,
I speak on behalf of all the staff here at Empire Productions that it was truly an honor to be apart of your wedding day! You have such a beautiful family and we know that you will have such a blessed future! Thank you for allowing us to be apart of your day!
Empire Productions was great! Tony our DJ was very creative, played a verity of songs that got everyone on the dance floor and the photo booth ran smoothly and was so much fun! I definitely recommend Empire Productions to anyone.
My day was so great and I didn't have to worry about a thing! I got to enjoy every minute of my day!! Tony and his team did such a great job with everything!Their uplighting and monogram was BEAUTIFUL and everything was perfect!! We loved it all!!
Adding Uplighting to our package was one of the best decisions we could have made! It was all worth every penny. We even added a custom backdrop last minute and I was speechless when we saw it set up with the lights! Even McKenzie the hall director said it was the best backdrop she had ever seen! It was so Beautiful.
They made the planning process so easy too I didn't have to stress over anything!! Everything was taken care of! Everyone was talking about how great everything looked!! I will be telling all my friends that this is the best way to go for a wedding! Not having to be stressed that day or during the time leading up to the wedding was great and every bride should be able to enjoy their day and all the people involved!! Thank you so much Tony and your team, you truly made our day EPIC!
Tony and his team at Empire Productions did a wonderful job with our wedding. The photography and DJ services were amazing. I have never seen my husband dance so much in time that I have known him. We were both very pleased with the services, staff and experience we had and would recommend them to everyone we meet. Thank you for such a memorable wedding!
Everything was well organized, thought out and executed in a very professional manner. Tony Axtell did an amazing job and would recommend Empire Productions to all Brides to be!
Tony was great at Empire Productions! He was very professional and accommodating to all DJ and lighting needs!! Deal with Tony directly because at the end of the day he is the one that cares the most because it is his company!
I highly recommend Empire Productions to any bride looking for a DJ to make your wedding night nothing less than epic!!! I felt so overwhelmed when it came time to choose a DJ for our special night, and Tony Axtell put my mind at ease! I literally thought... this guy is too good to be true! But I was wrong, Empire Productions followed through in every aspect of the process. From beginning to end, they truly set the bar for all of other vendors i was also having to work with.
Amanda Christensen "Empire Productions" office assistant was so professional, accommodating and knowledgable at all times, she always got back to me with any questions or concerns I had right away whether they were big or small!
Last but certainly not least, Grant was our "Master of Ceremonies" DJ from cocktail hour to midnight! He was so AWESOME! My guests had sooo much fun, they never left the dance floor! He was so tuned into us and our guests all night long that we actually had our guests thanking us for how much fun they had! His timing was perfect throughout the whole night, which completely took the pressure off of us!
Thank You Empire Productions for everything you do, and did to make our wedding night the best night of our lives!

I will recommend Empire Productions to anyone. They were great to work with and Tony was amazing at our reception. From the introductions to the final dance he was a true professional entertainer. Everyone had a blast and much of that is attributed to the work Tony and his team did. The monogram was AMAZING. I would also recommend their photo booth for any wedding or event, it was the biggest hit and so worth the $! One of my favorite things that we did at the reception-great keepsakes for guests too. We used Empire for their DJ, photo booth, uplighting, monogram, and backdrop services and would do it all again. Thanks Tony and crew for a great night :)
