Amazing Service and Communication
The 1859 Entertainment Company is one of the best companies I have ever worked with. I am so happy that we had the pleasure of meeting and working with this company for our wedding.Sent on 10/11/2020
First off, we ended up booking DJ, Photo Booth, and Videography services with this company in June 2019 for our May 2020 wedding. From the beginning, Zack responded to all my emails in a timely fashion with lots of detailed information. We were living out of state while planning our wedding in Oregon, so he made sure to provide us with all the details since we couldn't come home to visit. He even talked to me for an hour on his drive over to a wedding to answer questions I had for him. Needless to say, it was a pretty easy decision that we wanted to book with these guys.
Fast forward to 2020 and we now have Covid affecting the whole wedding industry. We decided to postpone our wedding from May until September and to downsize what was going to be a 250 person wedding down to 50 so were could comply with Covid guidelines. I seriously can not RAVE enough about how this company handled the changes that needed to be made due to Covid. Zack sent me their new covid policy guidelines and made sure that they were still able to offer all their services we had booked for our new date. He responded to countless emails that I had sent and when we choose to get rid of our Photo Booth due to covid, he gave us a full refund for the Photo Booth since we were still using 2 of their other services. He made the whole process of changing our contract over so easy. Not to mention that I made a last minute change the week before the wedding with adding more time to our videography package.
To our pleasant surprise, on our wedding day, Zack actually showed up as our videographer and had one of his best DJs Niko there with him. Zack introduced himself to us right away and was such a joy to work with though the day. He worked so well with our photographer, made us laugh and feel at ease, and asked us if he had any questions with the timeline or our plans on the day of. Niko was such a fun DJ as wevhad requested very specific cover songs for our ceremony and some for our reception. He kept the party going and played all the songs we had requested. Nico also checked in with us several times to make sure everything was going well and asked when we were ready for certain events such as the bouquet toss so we had freedom during the night to do what WE wanted to do. Not to mention, that even though we canceled our Photo Booth, Zack still brought a "Covid Friendly" small Photo Booth replacement that used an iPad and was set up at a bench at our venue free of charge. Those photos were then all emailed to me, in which I then sent to all of our guests. It was a HUGE hit.
Overall, I would recommend this company hands down for your wedding or any large event you are hosting. Communication was great and was ALWAYS there, which is key when planning a large event. As a company, I feel like they have adapted very well to the changes with COVID and made everyone feel comfortable at the wedding by wearing a mask the whole time. They are fairly priced and do amazing work. Please keep running your company like you guys are! Thanks SO much!

The perfect DJ and Photographer for our day!
Words can't even begin to express how happy I am that we chose 1859 Entertainment Co. Our DJ was fantastic and professional. The best part was the owner, Zack, assigned a bilingual DJ to our wedding even though I never officially requested it, because he knew how concerned I was about this aspect of my wedding. He was so responsive the whole way through planning as well! Overall just perfect! The fact that you get a discount when you book more than one service as well is just wonderful.
But, what really sets 1859 Entertainment Co. apart from the rest is Mackenzie. Her photography is simply STUNNING. Not only that, but she is such a kind soul, and you feel so comfortable and happy that she is there for you throughout your day. There isn't a single detail she missed. I got tears in my eyes when we got our photos back! I was so happy with the results, as well as with her amazing turn around time. I will never forget about Mackenzie, and she will be my go-to-girl when the time comes for my maternity, newborn and family shots. My wedding would have never been the same without her. My family and everyone really was so impressed by her when we received the pictures! THANK YOU Mackenzie!Sent on 09/20/2019

We had a great experience communicating with Zack before the wedding, and working with Niko the day of. Both were very flexible and great communicators. Zack was really organized and responded to questions very fast. Niko was our DJ day of and he played requests and was very approachable. Our guests had an amazing time dancing the night away!Sent on 08/21/2019

DJ & Photobooth services were great!
This company provided DJ and photobooth services at our wedding. Zack was our DJ and he was great! He played all the songs we wanted and helped make our wedding so much fun! Their photobooth was great as well. A couple of days after the wedding, we received digital copies of all of the photos that were taken in the booth at our wedding. I would definitely recommend this company to a friend!Sent on 10/24/2018

I (heart) Zack!
I can't even put into words how grateful I am that we booked Zack with 1859. He is so fun, and still incredibly professional. He did an AMAZING job keeping the wedding on time and flowing. He not only kept everyone on the dance floor the ENTIRE night- he also MC'd the whole event. I honestly can't tell you how many people complimented us on on our DJ stating "he's playing nothing but jams!" or "he is so organized and just the right level of funny!" While he was absolutely stellar at the wedding- he was even better leading up in the planning process. He's incredibly responsive and SO helpful in getting the timing of things laid out. I can't thank him enough for all his help and would ABSOLUTELY recommend him to any, and everyone!Sent on 10/24/2018

Hire 1859 Entertainment for your event! Zach and Mackenzie are absolutely wonderful to work with. They were so accommodating and professional, but also very personable and fun to work with! Our photos turned out to be absolutely stunning and our photo booth was a huge hit! I had a few custom requests for our day, and Zach and Mackenzie were always quick to respond and eager to help make our vision a reality. 1859 Entertainment was able to work with my budget and had very affordable costs for the packages I chose, they were even willing to travel across the state for our big day! Seriously, look no further for a team of professionals who will take your event to the next level.Sent on 08/07/2018

We used 1859 Entertainment Company for our videography, photo booth, and DJ. We highly recommend using 1859 for all of these services! It was obvious that they put a lot of time into editing our wedding video. Our guests also loved the photo booth and everyone had a blast dancing! Zack was very professional and communicated with us very well throughout the entire planning process! Thank you 1859 Entertainment Company!Sent on 09/12/2018

Amazing! Could not be happier!
I used Mackenzie for my photographer and I could not be happier. She was willing to go to the snow for my engagement pictures and that meant so much to us. She takes amazing pictures and edits them just enough that they look beautiful but not overly done.Sent on 10/24/2018
Zack did my DJ services. He was so nice and accommodating. He checked in with us and made sure everything flowed smoothly and that we were all on the same page. He played amazing music.
Both Mackenzie and Zack were so easy to get ahold of and so willing to work with us. I am so glad I found that. My wedding would not have been as perfect as it was without them.

My husband and I could not have been happier with 1859 Entertainment Company. We booked them because they gave us a grouped discount for Photo Booth and DJ! WIN WIN!! But after looking back I am SO HAPPY we found him!!
We felt Zach understood us and our kind of music and the kind of atmosphere we were hoping for. Prior to our wedding we had a face time meeting via internet to plan out everything, My husband and I had a few special requests and things we wanted announced and Zach took note of it all, he didn’t laugh or put down any of my crazy ideas! We went over our play list and Zach was able to get a good sense of what we wanted I had a very strict music playlist and he didn’t mind at all. Zach was easy to get in touch with in the weeks and days leading up to our wedding and he always got back to us promptly. I even emailed him the day before and he got right back to me! ( I literally added something to the ceremony maybe 48hrs in advance and he was willing to make changes!) I knew our wedding was in good hands and I was right! Zach remembered everything we requested throughout the evening and it was so great knowing that I didn't have to worry about a thing! The dance floor was always full and people had a great time dancing. So many people came up to us during the wedding and afterwards saying they had so much fun at the photobooth! My husband and I know our tastes in music but we also knew the crowd of our wedding and Zach "got" that. Because he did, he was able to read the crowd and provide an atmosphere our guests absolutely loved! There were people of all generations at the wedding and the music worked for everyone! I cannot write it enough, but thank you Zach for helping to make our wedding day so amazing! ~Mr & Mrs Jones 06/23/18

Zack, the owner of the company was super friendly and easy to work with - very thorough and responds quickly. Niko was our DJ and he was great! It happened to be raining on our wedding day and he was willing to setup everything outside for the ceremony and then move everything inside for the reception. I can't thank Niko enough for his flexibility and kindness on our wedding day! So grateful to have found such a great company to work with!Sent on 06/20/2018

Zack DJ’d my wedding when he was fairly new to the industry. It was a challenging location as the wedding was on the beach in Oregon. He set up mics in a manner that they didn’t have any wind noise during the ceremony which was downright incredible. His energy level was so high and so fun throughout the event. I’ve heard several times from our guest that it was “the best wedding I’ve ever been to!”. 1859 Ent has since been hired by several of my wedding guests to do their own weddings and events. They have done: a cousin’s wedding, my best friend’s wedding, my brother’s wedding, and will soon be doing another good friends wedding. In addition they have done a number of weddings for folks throughout the community that I am acquainted with as well. Every single time, the wedding is done perfectly. Zack has a unique ability to read the crowd and know the perfect moment to play a certain song or direct them to keep the wedding structured just as the bride would want. Mackenzie’s photos are so classy and well done. You would think they cost double what they actually charge. The photo booth is so much fun and the props are great! Seriously I can’t say how awesome these guys are enough times. One of the coolest things about 1859 Ent is their willingness to give back. I’ve been to multiple charity events where they provide their service at an extreme discount or free of charge to help fundraise. Zack even DJ’d the “Father/Daughter Ball” that my daughter and many other daughters look forward to every year. It was a long day and required suffering through nearly 6 hours of princess music and the guy had the same energy he had when he DJ’d my wedding 7 years prior. They are simply the best in the business and you’d be crazy to hire anyone else.Sent on 10/24/2018
