    Chad is absolutely amazing! He was the DJ for our wedding on 08.18.18 and we couldn’t have been happier with what he pulled together. Chad took the time to get to know us, he did an excellent job working in all of our song requests, he helped us greatly with song suggestions for our wedding party intros and he paid great attention to detail. He really went above and beyond and jumped in wherever needed.

    Chad and Bryan - Tim and I greatly appreciate all you two did to help make our wedding day great! Cheers to you two!

    Our wedding was perfect was amazing thanks to Bryan and his crew! With all the stress leading up to our big day, he helped us relax and took charge of making us feel comfortable with everything. The photos don't hold enough value if you weren't there in person to truly love how they utilize space and lighting. Without hesitation we recommend their service. Oh and get the Co2 cannons, they will make our day one never forgets!

    My wife and I booked Concept Effects for our wedding and all I can say is WOW

    Bryan was such a pleasure to work with. From our first meeting to the day of the wedding, he was hands on, attentive, and made sure we knew we were in good hands. The lighting was absolutely amazing. I can not begin to describe how elegant and beautiful the room turned out. We are still getting compliments from our guests.

    Not only did Bryan provide us with lighting but we also decided to go with the dancing on the clouds option for our first dance. Talk about star struck. The moment our first dance started, everyone in the room looked like they were lost and confused. It was the best moment of our night. We felt like movie stars dancing on top of clouds capping of such a romantic moment.

    Concept Effects recently began offering a new effect for events. The CO2 cannon. Let me tell you, this little toy was the highlight of my night. Once the party got started, I strapped on the backpack and made my way on to the dance floor to add a little spice to the night. BY FAR the best experience. YOU HAVE TO GET THIS FOR YOUR WEDDING!!!!

    Not only did Bryan provide us with all of that, he also had one of his staff members take photos throughout the night and then sent us those photos, EDITED, a week after our wedding.

    This is the company for you!  If you want a one of a kind night that everyone will be talking about, then Concept Effects is just for you!

    A++++++

    Thank you for making our night one to remember.

Bryan was not only easy to work with, he was also polite and professional. We would highly recommend his business to everyone. Thank you Bryan, for making our day so special!
    Happy customer,

    This is the company to use for your wedding day. Bryan was awesome to work with. He was on point with everything we needed for our wedding. The lighting was absolutely amazing and Chad, our DJ, was the best DJ we have ever heard at a wedding. I can't stress enough that if you're looking for that company that can take your wedding/event to the next level, than Concept Effects is the company you want to hire. Thank you so much for making our wedding a memorable one of a kind experience.

    Overall a great choice. Bryan takes pride in elevating your special day to a new level. I was not sure how important lighting was for the overall mood and was shocked to see how much the change in lighting influenced the overall flow of our wedding. We also really appreciated that concept effects was there to set up early, everything worked flawlessly and the pricing was extremely fair. A no-brainer for your next event.

    Concept effects went above and beyond for my wedding this past Saturday. We got a package that included dj, photo booth, different colored uplighting, and a cool feature called dancing on the clouds. It was a very reasonable price and contacting them and communicating was a breeze. I highly recommend them to anyone!!

    Bryan was very professional and flexible. Explained everything to us as we did not know anything about lighting or backdrop. The room looked stunning like from a movie scene. We received many compliments from our gusts. We highly recommend Concept Effects!!!

    Bryan and Chad were a dream to work with! Bryan was always responsive, sometimes within 10 minutes! Chad really captured our vision for the reception music. He listened to our ideas, as well as gave some great ideas himself! I am still getting compliments from our guests about the DJ, and how much fun they had dancing! I will (and already have) recommended them to all my family and friends! You will not be disappointed when you choose Concept Effects!

    We hired Concept Effects to do the lighting and DJ for our wedding and what can I say. Bryan and Chad were a delight to work with. The line of communication leading up to our wedding date was on point and the overall end result was amazing. Chad was the best DJ we have ever heard at a wedding and the lighting was incredible. Our guests could not stop talking about how great the room looked.

    If you're looking for a company to hire to create a one of a kind wedding, these are the guys. Amazing to work with. THANK YOU A++++++

    Concept Effects did a phenomenal job for our wedding. Bryan was super easy to work with and made my life so much easier in this hectic time. Super flexible and always responded to emails super fast. I absolutely loved all the work done by Bryan and his team. The mood lighting was absolutely perfect, it was changed for different parts of the night and that is exactly what I wanted. The Dj was absolutely amazing, he played everything we asked for and everyone was dancing the whole time. I couldn't ask for a better Dj ever, DJ Risky Bizness is absolutely amazing. The CO2 cannon was super fun, I am so glad Bryan suggested I get it. Thank you for making our wedding an unforgettable event. Will definitely be recommending Bryan and his team to others for their special events.

    I worked with Bryan from Concept Effects for my wedding on June 5th of 2015. He did our lighting, transportation (party bus for bridal party and limo for me, my maid of honor and father to the church for the ceremony), he referred me to the DJ we chose, he brought in a videographer, and even though we had a photographer, he brought in another photographer so we have double the photos! Bryan was extremely professional to work with and he listened to everything I wanted and made it a reality. He also brought in something new when the party started getting super fun, a CO2 gun. It was the first time anyone has seen a CO2 gun and it was awesome, I DEFINITELY recommend doing that. For our first dance, he set up dancing under the stars which was amazing. The whole night was unforgettable and I owe a lot of that to Bryan and Concept Effects. Hurry up and book your big day with Concept Effects before 2016 is all filled up!

    Bryan was amazing. From planning to follow up it was everything we were looking for in a vendor. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. chad was an amazing DJ who kept our guests happy and dancing all night long. The lighting was incredible and my guests are still talking about it. The limo bus was top notch brand new and Dan was an amazing driver. I am so happy we chose to go with Concept Effects. They truly are great at what they do. Thank you so much for making our day one of a kind!!

    We worked with Bryan at Concept Effects for our April 2015 wedding and he made planning all of the details for our big day so easy. Since we got married at the 99th Floor of the Sears Tower and he was not familiar with the space he met us out there with the DJ - Chad, who we also hired through Concept Effects to make sure everything would be perfect including all of the lighting and sound. Bryan also suggested that we use the cloud machine for our first dance and I was so happy he did, our guests loved it and we got some amazing photos! We also did a slide show during cocktail hour and Bryan supplied the TV and also took charge of setting it up and making sure everything ran smoothly. Bryan also supplied a fabric backdrop for our ceremony which looked absolutely gorgeous and had no problems relocating it behind the head table for the reception when we asked. I am so glad we chose to work with Bryan and Concept Effects. I highly recommend booking them for your event, everything will be perfect down to the last detail!

    Brian and Chad were a pleasure to work with. Brian was flexible and worked with our budget - which in a wedding is so important. And I cannot say enough about how amazing Chad, the DJ, was. All we wanted was to have the best party and with best music at our wedding - he exceeded our expectations. Could not have been happier!!

    We hired Concept Effects to do some fairy lights around our reception area. We wanted a laid-back feel, and asked for a simple swag design. Concept Effects knew exactly what to do - and we left all the details and creativity in their hands! What we got was stunning. I could not have been happier and it really set the party mood for the night. They also gave us a really great deal on uplighting and were so pleasant to work with. I would hire this company again.
