Vendor Highlight ~ Wedding Planner ~ A Good Affair Wedding & Event Production

We have truly had the pleasure of working with a lot of different wedding planners and vendors over the years, so we thought we should take the opportunity on our blog to thank them for their support and hard work for all those brides and grooms out there.

A Good Affair Wedding & Event Production has truly been a pleasure to work with over the last few years, and we look forward to so many more events for years to come!

Thank You Thursday ~ Wedding Wire Review

Thank you Bryce for our 5 star review on Wedding Wire!

“Steve was great to work with! He was recommended through our wedding planner and we could not have asked for a better DJ! He worked with us on finding music, made the process very quick and painless, and kept our guests dancing all night long. We still get feedback almost a year later that he kept a great party going at the reception. If you want your guests to have fun and dance, definitely think of Steve at Honored Occasions!”

Thank You Thursday ~ Yelp Review

Thank you Kellie C for our 5 star Yelp review!

“We LOVED Steve @ Honored Occasions! He provided “full service production” & he did a fantastic job. He is a talented entertainer & he knows what music to play for soft background mood setting, and what to play to keep the party rolling!  It was important to us that our guests have FUN & they did – the dance floor was packed all night. We had 240 guests and he orchestrated the wedding & reception beautifully. He had great suggestions on music selections – both traditional and current. He was professional & personable on the mic and everyone had a great time! He also did the sound set up for the outdoor ceremony, and it was perfect. He did all of the lighting for the venue (indoor & outdoor) and we were amazed at how it transformed the setting. He was awesome from the first meeting to the last dance .. he came highly recommended to us & we were honestly thrilled with him. We absolutely recommend you hire him!”
