Best Decision We Made for Our Wedding!!

Top Hat was recommended to us by our venue and they did not disappoint! From the initial meeting we had with Mike before booking, the booking process, and their communication and professionalism leading up to the day, Top Hat was top notch. We had Rob as our wedding DJ and from our initial meeting with Rob we knew we were in good hands. Rob really took the time to get to know us as a couple and what was important to us for the wedding, which was keeping the dance floor going all night! We expressed to Rob the importance of the DJ for our wedding day and he absolutely delivered. Seriously could not recommend him enough. He kept the energy high all night and our guests are still raving about how the dance floor literally didn't stop all night. Rob went above and beyond, even taking photos for us for our private last dance as our photographer and videographer had already left. 10/10 would recommend!!

Hit of the Night

The mirror photobooth provided by Top Hat was the hit of our wedding. Our guests had so much fun and we enjoyed looking back at all of the photos taken. The mirror was easy to use and the attendant was extremely friendly and helpful. She helped assemble a photo book for us of the extra pictures that everyone printed. They provided fun props for us and guests to use throughout the evening. It really was the hit of the party! We loved receiving digital copies of the photos too. I recommend everyone get one for their wedding!

Great Photobooth

We hired Top Hat Entertainment to set-up a magic mirror styled photo booth. It was an excellent experience from start to finish. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed the ability to take their photos with a wide variety of props, and we really appreciated the attendant that encouraged guests to place their photos in our album so we could have a keepsake from the wedding. They even sent us digital copies of the photos so we can have access to them later. We would definitely use Top Hat Entertainment again.
