Heather from Powerstation was the first photographer we met. It's a shame that we spent so much time after our introduction looking at other vendors as well, because my (now) wife and I knew we loved Heather right from the start. She was extremely personable, and emotionally dove into our wedding planning immediately into our first conversation. I remember us leaving the Powerstation building feeling excited and energized. Heather had that effect on us every time we saw her. It was almost comical that after each vendor we visited during our marathon of research, Alyssa (my wife) would look at me and whisper "She/he was nice, but she/he wasn't Heather". And I completely agreed.Sent on 09/03/2012
Heather's personality easily carried over into her work on the wedding day. She (and her assistant Krista) were meticulous in their determination to grab the perfect shot that captured all the emotion of that moment. Her creativity was excellent, and she leveraged the most out of each shot environment. Her ideas on the first look and a "grand exit" at the chapel were phenomenal. I was particularly impressed with her ability to command a group of boisterous groomsmen almost effortlessly with some hilarity and wit (which I can assure you was not a generally easy task).
Heather and Krista managed to capture every moment and every emotion, with almost no recognition of their presence by the guests. I'm still not sure how they did it. We were so happy we were able to have Heather available for our wedding day - it was one of the best decisions we made through the entire process. If you're like us, you'll probably be very zealous in your search for the perfect photographer. Our only advice is that you take the time to meet with Heather and see some of her work. We are pretty confident you'll fall in love with her as quickly as we did.

Amazing party experience
We hired a Powerstation DJ and photobooth for our August 10 wedding. Our DJ, Chris V, was fantastic from start to finish. He did our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We had some obscure song requests and he played them all while balancing them out with the more popular wedding stuff. People were out on the dance floor all night!Sent on 08/19/2019
He also worked closely with our photographer and wedding coordinator to keep us on schedule. He checked in with us a few times throughout the night, but not too many that we felt pestered. He was personable but professional and really put us at ease during an overwhelming day.
We also did a Powerstation photobooth. We chose the open-air setup so we could see people getting goofy. We got a scrapbook with the photo strips at the end of the night and a digital gallery of all the photos.
I got quotes from several area DJs/photobooths and Powerstation was comparable. They also offered a discount for booking multiple services. I would absolutely use them again.

So worth it!
Powerstation was a great company to work with for our wedding. We used them for our DJ, photographer, and photo booth. DJ Dave Salonia was an expert at keeping the night moving and getting people on the dance floor. We got a TON of compliments about how the music was the best people had ever heard at a wedding and we totally agree. Kelsey was our photographer and was such a pleasure to work with. She made us feel really comfortable and was just so nice! We also got our photos back really quickly from our engagement shoot (within 2 weeks) and were told to expect the same for our wedding shots (2-3 weeks) which was impressive. The photo booth was a great add-on as well. We were able to bring our own props and the package included a photo album created throughout the night with photos that our guests took and signed. It was a great way to reminisce about the night after the fact and get some laughs! Overall, Powerstation was a great company - very professional, talented, communicative, and organized. Highly recommended!Sent on 08/14/2019

A Perfect Wedding Experience - Thanks to Powerstation
I knew of Powerstation through my role as an educator; they had sent DJs to several Junior and Senior Proms for the school at which I work, and I had acted as a class advisor or chaperone to several of those proms. They had done amazing, engaging, and extremely professional work, always listening to requests to set the right tone for the evening and getting the students involved. In short, they were great!Sent on 08/11/2019
After getting engaged, the first and only name that jumped to mind when looking for a DJ and Photobooth was Powerstation. We had a brief meeting with Kevin Williams, who quickly helped connect us with the right DJ and meet our photobooth needs.
On the big day (and the lead-up to it), our DJ, Dave Salonia, was precise and professional. He met with us to review our paperwork precisely, and followed up several times via email to make sure that everything was just right. And, of course, as our wedding DJ, he was just what we wanted - engaging to our guests, great attention to detail, and flexible with requests for music from our guests.
Our photobooth operator, Stephanie, was also extremely helpful in getting us copies of every photo and helping our guests leave touching memories throughout the night in our take-home photobook.
Kevin, Stephanie, Dave, and the whole team behind the scenes made our big day just perfect. I couldn't recommend Powerstation more highly.

We loved working with Powerstation! We used them for our DJ, technical support (for pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception), and for our photobooth. Chris was our DJ and he was amazing! He did an wonderful job coordinating multiple songs for our ceremony entrance as well as our reception entrance—it was so perfect! Chris was easy to work with and very professional, and helped create the perfect environment for everyone to enjoy themselves and dance the night away! We also picked the open-air photobooth for our wedding which was a HUGE hit! The attendant was excellent and even created a keepsake book of all the photos from the night for us! I highly recommend Chris and Powerstation Events!Sent on 08/05/2019

Easy to work with, great value
We used Powerstation events for our afterparty event at the hotel. Powerstation was great- played the songs we wanted, and were reasonably priced.Sent on 07/17/2019

Kevin was spectacular!
We hired Kevin from Power Station Events as the DJ for our wedding (both ceremony and reception) and could not be happier with our choice! Following talking with Kevin on the phone and making our decision Power Station Events sent us a packet of popular songs to help with our planning process. We had so much fun listening to the recommendations and used it to inspire us to add some additional songs to our wedding play list. Kevin assisted us with the development of our overall reception timeline and ensured us that it could be run however, we wanted it however, also offered great expertise that only comes with experience. Kevin was timely for our ceremony and the music and audio were flawless. In regards to our reception he was able to assist with tailoring our bridal party entrance music and even kept their entrance songs a secret (per our request) despite my bridesmaids best efforts to break him! Talking with Kevin we felt comfortable letting him run the show in regards to our music. We gave him some general ideas to help him get started but he was able to read the room and keep our dance floor and events moving the whole night! We could not be happier with Kevin and power station events and would highly recommend them!Sent on 07/31/2019

Wonderful dj, photobooth and lighting
Our DJ Dave Salonia was a perfect fit to our wedding! He was energetic and got everyone on the dance floor. He played music to keep people moving all night! He joined in to group dances to show everyone the moves! He did an awesome job introducing the events throughout the night and keeping the schedule going. We also added the photobooth to our package and we weren't disappointed. Everyone loved the photobooth and we have a memorial scrapbook with all the photos and guests were able to write us notes along side their shots! We had lighting the colors of our wedding and a monogram in the middle of the dance floor!Sent on 07/28/2019

Energetic and awesome DJ
Dave Salonia of Powerstation Events was the DJ for our wedding 6/8/19. We could not be happier we chose Dave as our DJ!! He had our guests on the dance floor the entire night! His energy is contagious and he made sure all our guests were enjoying themselves the entire time! He also diligently took his time to speak with us prior to our wedding to ensure both our ceremony and reception went as we had envisioned. He certainly made our wedding day special and we cannot thank him enough for making it one of the best days of our lives!Sent on 06/25/2019

Kevin was a great DJ
Our DJ was Kevin Williams, and he was awesome. We picked Kevin from the list of Powerstation DJs based on who we felt would fit the feeling of our wedding the best, and Kevin nailed it perfectly. Powerstation gave us an easy questionnaire so that we could give our DJ all the information he needed, then on the day of, Kevin worked well with what was going on and our guests, and made everything, even announcements, feel natural. He and Powerstation had all of the equipment and were able to get set up smoothly and without issue. Our wedding had 80 guests, mostly aged 25-30, but some older people as well.Sent on 06/23/2019
(We hired Powerstation as our DJ only. Even missing out on some value that we might've gotten by getting multiple services in one place, it was definitely worth it)

Kevin was the DJ for our wedding. He was awesome! From our initial meeting, we knew he would be a great personality for our fun, but not 'club-like' wedding. He was excited about our song choices and it showed during the night. He helped everything run smoothly and kept everyone on the dance floor--from 13 years old to 70! They also provided our uplighting, which was great! Powerstation was very easy to work with- I would definitely go with them again for another event.Sent on 05/02/2019

So much fun!!
We are very happy we chose Powerstation for our ceremony and reception DJ! The company itself is very professional easy to work with; we first reviewed our vision for the night with them and were matched with several DJ's. We chose Kevin Williams, who did an amazing job keeping the party alive all night! Music is very important to us and we were very excited to create our wedding playlists. Although we picked out many of the songs, Kevin was a great help with suggestions and opinions on what would and wouldn't work. The day of our wedding we did not have to worry about a thing when it came to the music; Kevin had everything under control for us. We also had Matt Richter on the drums playing along with the songs which added an awesome vibe to the night. We had so much fun with all of our guests and would choose these guys again and again!Sent on 08/04/2019

Exactly what we wanted!
We had Frank from Powerstation for our wedding DJ on 12/28/18 and he was awesome! So friendly and very easy to work with. We provided an extensive list of songs we definitely wanted to hear during dinner and dance (100+ songs) and he put together a list that flowed and matched the vibe of the night. Frank respected our "do not play" list and also took requests from guests if they flowed with what he was playing and reflected the type of songs we had on our list. He checked in with us regarding volume which we appreciated. You can tell Frank didn't just put together a prearranged list, press play, and sit back the rest of the night - he really was working the entire night; being very attentive to how the night was progressing and in what direction he should go next for a song choice. Everyone was on the dance floor for a solid 4 hours straight which is exactly what we wanted! I absolutely recommend Frank as your wedding DJ!Sent on 01/17/2019

We love Kelsey!
I booked Powerstation for 3 services for my wedding at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills (photography, hair/makeup, and florals) and they all exceeded my expectations in every way! We had Kelsey as our photographer and she was particularly INCREDIBLE! We got to know Kelsey over the phone when we had our consultation and knew immediately she would be a great fit for my husband and me. We had a 1 hour engagement session with her in March where we really began to build our relationship and needless to say we loved our photos. When it came to our wedding day, Kelsey was MUCH MORE than a photographer. She was a therapist and a friend and helped keep us calm all day. She made sure we took EVERY SINGLE PHOTO that we talked about and was adaptable throughout the day when our timeline got a little tight. During our first look, my dress ended up getting a bit dirty from being outside and Kelsey got down on hand and knee and helped my bridesmaids get every speck of dirt out. I am speechless about the service she provided. Knowing that Kelsey had shot tons of weddings at the Barns helped the day flow seamlessly. I could go on and on about how fantastic she was :)...BOOK HER!Sent on 11/27/2018

A Night to Remember !!!!
When my now wife and I sat at the dining room table to review our invite list I started to worry about what music to play that all our guest would enjoy. This is also when my wife reminded me that most of my friends hated the music that I loved. Great now what??Sent on 07/13/2019
At our first meeting with Power Station Events, Kevin was amazing and put most of our fears away. He’s so easy to talk to and a great listener. You can tell that he has been doing this for a long time and loves what he does. After meeting with him, we picked Charlie S to be our DJ and decided to get a jazz trio for our cocktail hour as we wanted to have a combination of live music as well as a DJ for the reception. My wife is Polish, so we wanted to play some Polish music as well as EDM which we both love. A weird combination, right? Not for Charlie! He was able to find the Polish songs and play our requests without any trouble.
On the big day, the set-up crew arrived early, put up our up lights and adjusted the color to the perfect shade of orange to match our décor, the room looked great, my wife cried when she first walked into the room! The jazz trio was AMAZING!! We received so many compliments from our guests on the trio and it was a nice change of entertainment between the cocktail hour and the reception. We even had the option of choosing which 3 instruments we wanted for the trio. We went with sax, piano, and bass which we absolutely loved.
Charlie was amazing as well. He checked in with us before our big introductions, verified the pronunciation of everyone’s names in the wedding party, and let us know the Polish bread ceremony we just added the day before to our schedule was good to go. He nailed the pronunciation of everyone’s names and trust me that some of them were rather long complicated Polish names. After nailing our first dance, Charlie guided us through the bread ceremony, narrating the event for all our guest. Throughout the evening he kept dropping songs that filled the dance floor and kept all our friends dancing. It was amazing to see groups run into the ballroom from the bar and our firepit outside when they heard a song that they HAD to dance to. My now father-in-law is disabled so my wife was worried about her dance with her dad as we were not sure if he would last for the entire song. We expressed our fear and worries with Charlie a few days before the wedding, and Charlie said he will take care of us and cut the song short if needed if he sees that dad needs a rest and that is exactly what he did. Charlie cares, PowerStation cares, and they want to make sure that you have the time of your life on your big day and everything goes perfect! We are so thankful that we entrusted Power Station Events with the honor of providing the entertainment at our Wedding.

Our experience with powerstation events was nothing short of exceptional! From the moment we walked in to meet with the vendors to the wedding day! Any question we had were quickly answered! They are pricey but if you want quality and great service in every way possible that is what you are paying for!Sent on 10/14/2018
Also if you have 2 or more services with them you get a coordinator that works with you if you have questions! Amanda “G” was so helpful!
Keith also was so helpful! He hooked us up with a great guitarist for our ceremony music, Dave G and he played everything we wanted! It was beautiful!
Our DJ Paul! What can we say about Paul! If you want a party, you need to go with Paul! He was so funny and great to work with! He’s so good at what he does! I had so many people remark that night and after that he was wonderful! Music wasn’t loud during the meal time but once that was over It was party time! We were sad we weren’t on the dance floor as much as our guests! Paul would always be our first pick!
Kelsey our photographer was an absolute dream! She was so easy going and efficient! She was more than a photographer that day, she helped with so many things from putting on the boutonnières on all 9 men to sipping up bridesmaids dresses and taking my veil off my head and putting it back in the bridal suite! She was more than willing to help in any way and she was completely focused on getting all the right shots of the wedding and wedding party! We are so excited to get back all the photos!
We also used their lighting and decor! They made everything we wanted into a reality! It looked Luke a dreamy escape with twinkling lights!
The whole powerstation team is seamless! Can not recommend them enough!

My wedding day was truly magical. It was hands down my most favorite day. I have so many humans to thank who contributed to this day, Holly Martin is one of them! She is truly amazing at what she does, all of our photos from the serious ones to the goofy came out wonderful and so natural. Holly was so easy to work with and I did not have to reach out once, she was always on top of everything! I highly recommend Holly as she is a 10/10!Sent on 04/15/2019

I can't say enough good things about Powerstation. We had specific types of table settings we wanted for a South Asian themed wedding - something inspired by what we saw on Pinterest that had an impossible time finding anywhere else. Caitlin went on Pinterest and found the exact source that was used in the picture we saw and tracked it down for our rehearsal dinner.. She helped us execute on an idea we had in our heads, cobbled together by what we saw on random pinterest boards, and made it a reality two nights in a row. She drove out of her way to do a site walkthrough ahead of time to make sure all the details were in place, and everything came together seamlessly and without a either of us breaking a sweat. Hire them and make your life easy.Sent on 09/16/2018

If I could give more than a 5 Star review I would. Power Stations was amazing for our wedding!!! Especially our DJ Dave Salonia who was the best we could have asked for! He had everyone dancing from the moment he was able too! All of our guests raved about how great he was. He was funny, knew our personalities and just made it the time of our lives!

Powerstation was just a great company to work with - they listen to what you have to say and work to create that vision. And besides music they work with florists, and transporatation companies so really you could do one stop shopping.Sent on 09/01/2018
Rich was our DJ - he was so friendly, took into account our wishes and made them all come true. He kept everyone up on the dance floor - dancing the nite away.

My fiance (now husband!) and I had a wonderful experience with Powerstation! From our initial meeting about DJ services with Kevin to contracting with Rich, the team answered all of our questions, provided extensive information about their services, and made us feel like we were already part of the Powerstation family!

Charlie is the absolute best!
I cannot say enough about what a great job Charlie did as the DJ at our wedding. The music that was played throughout the night was exactly our taste and after dinner had everyone on the dance floor. Charlie was also really helpful in deciding our schedule and timing of the night. He made the recommendation to move things around due to the timing of dinner to play a specially requested song and it worked out perfectly, I’m so glad that he was able to facilitate so that we could add that in smoothly to the events of the night. I have also received endless compliments from our guests about how awesome he was and everyone was blown away that he had walked around to personally introduce himself to different tables and made sure everyone was enjoying the music selection. Charlie was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with at our wedding.Sent on 10/28/2018
