About Dynasty Weddings

REAL Wedding Photography, Videography, Bilingual DJ/MC, Photo Booth Rental, New York City
Dynasty Weddings began as a small, intimate family business that has developed into a well-known and well-respected company within the wedding entertainment industry for over 13 years. Dynasty Weddings has catered to venues ranging from small restaurants to some of the most prestigious establishments and hotels throughout the tri-state area. Known for their versatility and vast experience with catering to varying venues and crowds, Dynasty Weddings is especially known for specializing in understanding the traditions and special needs for Asian and Asian-American weddings and banquets (as well as offering bilingual MCs and DJs where needed).

Dynasty Weddings all began humbly with Chris Chen’s detailed eye for throwing a great party paired with a passion for music. In 1993 Chris Chen got his official start in the wedding entertainment industry. Chris’s first DJ/MC gig began when Brother Kevin Chen needed a DJ/MC for a friend’s wedding, immediately Kevin thought of Chris for the job. Having worked in social events planning prior to Dynasty Weddings, Chris took on the task. After a successful and fulfilling experience Dynasty Weddings was soon established by the two brothers.

Based on positive client feedback and word of mouth, Dynasty Weddings has since grown from a two – person operation to presently being a full fledged wedding organization. Since hosting their first wedding event with over 300 guests, Dynasty Weddings has offered their unique style of wedding and banquet entertainment to over 800 more couples. Building upon a strong foundation with over 13 years of experience, Dynasty Weddings has since expanded past wedding entertainment to include more wedding services such as Photography, Video, Event Planning, Floral, Make-Up & Hair Styling, with new services that are continually developing.

Chris saved my ass a billion times on my wedding day. As a multi-cultured couple, we needed services that were bilingual in Chinese but catered to my 2nd generation needs, so initially, we signed up for the DJ and lighting (to take care of the often garish, yellow lighting in most Chinese banquet halls), with MC services and tea ceremony coverage. Then we did ceremony and cocktail hour DJ coverage. Afterwards, as the weight of double the traditions increased, we then added Day-Of coordination and it really ensured things went as smoothly as they did!

Chris himself ends up being the coordinator, and the MC (with a co-host), he was so attentive to our needs and the needs of our parents and our vendors (even our photographer, Adrienne Longo, felt taken care of by Chris!), being able to respond quickly to the absence of a particular beer that a family member enjoys, to adapting to the indecisiveness of my family, he was a picture of calm and efficiency the entire day, keeping the day going, keeping things moderately on schedule, and running cups of water to us. He received vendors, and helped me tip them and keep our belongings safe. He was the MVP, being able to communicate so well in both English and Chinese!

The DJ and cohost were also just as lovely, helping us with requests and being attentive to our needs. Sisi, the cohost, was really accommodating during the tea-ceremony, guiding my in-laws through, keeping my family going, and keeping everyone entertained. The DJ was really responsive to any requests we had, and open to suggestions to killing the music from one band.

If you're a multicultural couple, especially one with a slipping grasp on her 1st language (guilty!) or are American-born Chinese couples, Dynasty Weddings is a must. Chris is almost prescient in how he knows what you need and what everyone who is part of your wedding needs! Keep an eye on him, he's going to corner the market.

My husband and I had the best wedding ever with the help of Chris and Sisi from Dynasty Weddings. Chris assisted us with organizing our wedding on the phone and us 3 adjusted the evening's schedule on google drive doc. We really appreciated his time in organizing the schedule with us and being on the phone to give us suggestions because my husband and I never planned a wedding before so we were really clueless. Sisi was the MC at our wedding. She was phenomenal. Her and her crew. They provided the music for our ceremony as well and my favorite part that stunned me was when our ceremony ended and we kissed each other, and turned around, the crew played the best part of the song at that moment. We chose "Fireworks" by Katy Perry and the crew played the best part of that song as soon as we kissed and turned around. It was totally professional, unplanned and just perfect. Sisi was so professional and she was definitely lively. She brought the crowd to the floors and made our wedding fun and exciting. She spoke in Cantonese and English making both friends and family who only understood Cantonese or only English included in every way. She had fun games and crazy ideas. My guests continued to compliment Sisi and the music crew after our wedding as they were impressed with their awesome service. They even thought that I paid a fortune for the MC and music crew because they were exceptionally professional and experienced. To be honest, it was such a reasonable price because Dynasty Weddings is based in New York and my wedding took place in Berlin, NJ. The fact that they drove all the way to me and did such a phenomenal job at performing for my wedding was awesome. My guests also LOVED the photo booth. Dynasty Weddings made our wedding stand out and our guests thought we had a fancy wedding!

Chris and his team did an awesome job keeping my guests entertained on the dance floor as well as helping us capture the memories with their photobooth.

We had a multicultural wedding so Chris was able to speak Cantonese and English (obviously) to our guests.

He was able to also accommodate me with short notice to project a slideshow of our previous wedding ceremony with a great AV setup.

Lastely Chris gave great value for the services and he was very helpful in getting us through our timeline and helping to distract the guests when we were running behind schedule.

Highly recommended!
