Where do I start?! 196 is absolutely amazing!! Devail and Nikki are the most down to earth people we have ever met!! We hit it off on our first meeting and we texted them before we left the parking lot to let them know that we wanted to work with them. They were very responsive to my emails and text messages and only wanted what was in our best interests! On our wedding day they surpassed our expectations!! Our guests did not want to leave the dance floor and didn’t want the night to be over!! Though there were just a few snags along the way, Devail and Nikki kept it very professional and fun!! I sweated out my hairstyle, that’s how much fun I had and it was all thanks to 196 events!! If you’re looking for a DJ that’s going to keep the party going, then give 196 events a call: you will NOT be disappointed!! P.S. they have the coolest photo booth as well!!Sent on 06/26/2018

BEST PHOTO BOOTH EVER!!!!!!! Literally the only thing I can say is that my biggest wedding regret is not getting in the booth myself enough! The pictures are amazing, this couple is amazing, everything is TOP NOTCH!!!! Gorgeous pictures, modern set up, friendliest staffing ever - not only should you hire them, but you should also tell your DJ and wedding planner to encourage people to get their butts over to the booth as much as possible - because people are going to go crazy for these pictures! Also, the team is SO easy to work with and will find you the PERFECT backdrop and PERFECT photo booth strip design. SO patient. SO kind. So, I'll say it again - BEST PHOTO BOOTH EVER!!!!Sent on 06/12/2018

Devail was the best! We had what some might call a smaller wedding, so I was a little worried about keeping people on the dance floor...but Devail was great about playing the music we liked, getting people motivated, and even getting on the dance floor with our guests!! 10/10 would recommend for any other bride in Hampton Roads!Sent on 05/19/2018
196 Events's reply:What an awesome review! We really appreciate you and Derek for letting us take part in your wedding. Small group our not, we had a great time celebrating with you! It was a pleasure to meet you both.
Davail was an awesome DJ to work with! His music selection was great and I loved how he did a little mixing as well! He was really interactive with the wedding guests and really got everyone out on the dance floor. I highly recommend his DJ services!
He's so attentive to his couples. My family has hired Echols' entertainment a couple times, and a close friend also requested help with his wedding. Everyone has enjoyed the services they asked for, and have enjoyed the music selection. I look forward to working with Mr. Echols again!
