We had a great experience with Exclusively Entertainment! They provided our AV for the ceremony, DJ for the cocktail hour and during the reception when the brand was on a break, and the lighting. Since many of our guests were Persian, we wanted to make sure we had authentic Persian music playing. Payam and the EE team were great to work with from Day 1 - very flexible, and helped bring our vision to life. We had a lot of "requests" - for example, we had surprise belly dancers, a surprise "happy birthday" for the groom, etc - and they helped execute everything flawlessly.
Payam also checked with us once the ballroom (florals, decor, etc) were set up to make sure the lighting was the right color. The lighting ended up being spectacular and I'm so glad we decided to do uplighting - it really helped the subtle purple in the floral centerpieces pop, and created a wonderful ambience in the room.
Since they typically don't do events in central Virginia, we worked with the EE team to make sure they were at a hotel nearby. They had never been to this venue before, but it didn't even matter - they were professional, very service-oriented, and did a great job. I cannot recommend them enough!

Exclusively Entertainment is fantastic! They performed a variety of services for our wedding back in May of 2011 in DC (Jay Carpenter and Sara Miller Carpenter) and we couldn't have asked for better service. Customer service was top notch and the level of professionalism was impressive. Not only are they prompt in getting back to you with any questions or requests, they are always proactive in making sure you that their clients are 110% satisfied, which we really appreciated.
Iman Huschmand, the president/owner, served as our MC. What an amazing job he did. He has a natural ability to command a room but also keeps the proceedings light and on schedule. Very charming and easy to work with. Very versatile and able to handle everything smoothly. He can even be your DJ when he's not busy MC'ing and running the company!
Pedram Farsaii was our DJ. Another outstanding job by this guy. Even when I waited until the last minute to get him our list of song requests, he was able to incorporate pretty much every one, with few exceptions. Our reception was a DANCE party - it really did not stop for about five straight hours. He only played one slow song - "No One" by Alicia Keys - b/c he was doing such a great job of keeping it fun and energetic. The fact our wedding was talked about weeks and months after the fact among friends and family was a testament to the party Pedram helped create.
Dominic Della - simple words cannot begin to describe the job Dominic did on the lighting, setup, videography, and editing. Dominic's talent is "off the charts" amazing and his work ethic is right up there with it, to boot. To see the video he shot and edited by himself is literally, a work of art. He framed our day perfectly and it really did appear like a glamorous, Hollywood movie-star like event. Again, just like Iman and Pedram - we really appreciated his dedication to excellent customer service and he was so easy to work with.
Overall, I would rate Exclusively Entertainment as an fantastic addition to any wedding or event and would highly recommend them to anyone. Another impressive thing about them is their versatility and flexibility. While we were a young, energetic couple who wanted a fast-paced all-out dance party, they are also fully capable of adapting to countless other varieties of parties and clients (old, young, ethnic weddings with more focused song lists, etc.).
Great, great job these guys and we are proud to count the EE team not only as great vendors, but friends going forward.

DJ Saam kept the entire event on schedule and focused. He was very communicative with us the entire night. He kept our guests entertained and really knew how to keep people on their feet dancing, even the wait staff was dancing while working! We can’t fully express just how much of an integral part Saam played in our special day to make it the best day of our lives!
I have worked with the dashing, fun-loving, highly professional Iman Huschmand, owner of Exclusively Entertainment, on a number of weddings and events over the years. Iman and his EE Team consistently dedicate their time and efforts required to perfect clients' visions for any event. I recommend Exclusively Entertainment to anyone, especially brides!
Awesome DJ service.
Exclusively Entertainment and its professional, dedicated and truly knowledgable team is the partner we highly recommend for all your entertainment needs.
