  • Bryan and his staff were very professional and great to work with. Our banquet hall looked amazing with the lights and our dance in the clouds for our first dance was amazing.

  • 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 (Matt from A Posh Productions who was AMAZING and extremely professional), 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 cannon. It was the first time anyone has seen a CO2 cannon 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 fi... Read more

    Stefanie, you and Chris were great to work with. The pictures came out great and the facial reactions from your guests, and especially Chris, were one of a kind when we brought out the CO2 cannon. By Far one of our favorite weddings. Hope all is well.

  • 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 ... Read more

  • Loved working with Bryan and Concept Effects! We used their interactive lighting and photobooth. Bryan helped us determine the best colors to use for each part of the night and as soon as the dancing started our dance floor looked awesome!

  • 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!!

    Christi, it was such a great time working with you and Alex. We always have a blast at the Italian American Sports Hall of Fame. Chad and I are very happy that we had the opportunity to create a one of a kind, memorable experience for the two of you. I hope all is well and thank you again for letting us be a part of your big day.

  • 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.

  • Bryan was INCREDIBLE. He is such a kind guy and guided us through our wedding plans from start to finish, never once over selling us or pushing us towards something we didn't need. Our DJ Chad was by far the best DJ I have ever heard at a wedding. From the moment the dance floor opened up until the night ended, Chad and the lighting had the dance floor packed. The lighting was AMAZING. When Bryan explained to us what the interactive and intelligent package were, at first I was a bit confused, but the way he explained it had me excited to see the end result. Needless to say, when I first walked in to my venue, I cried. It was amazing. The color changes, the themes, everything was breathtaking. You can't go wrong with Concept Effects on your wedding day. Their work is amazing and I am extremely happy with the end result. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. NO NEED TO SHOP ANYWHERE ELSE. A++++++++++++++++++++

  • I dislike having to give poor reviews, but I would be absolutely lying if I said I was at all satisfied with the service that Concept Effects provided to us on our wedding day. I give honest reviews (most of which are 5 stars but not this one). My wedding day was perfect in my book because I married my best friend, and I won’t let my experience with Concept Effects ruin it for me. If you are at all considering this company, please go back to the website, spreadsheet, or contact list. This is not a company you want to book with. Everything up to the day of my wedding was adequate. Communication, getting a look at the bus (from the outside because they didn’t have a key…), and emailing back and forth was professional. DON’T LET THIS FOOL YOU. Week before, my sister wanted to make a party bus playlist and asked if it had an aux cord. I then emailed Bryan and Ryan who both confirmed that there was an aux cord in the bus we would be driving. We also gave them a list of the locatio... Read more

    Jaclyn It is unfortunate that you had a bad experience with the limo bus you booked. However, the driver was provided with all of the documentation you gave us prior to your wedding. He had all of your stops and address prior to the wedding. Unfortunately, yes, he was 15 minutes late to your first stop because of traffic. However, as we explained in our email to you after your wedding, Top Fleets drivers pick up the vehicle they are driving the day of, and 45minutes to an hour prior to your pick up time and are usually 15minutes early. Considering your first pick up location was 20 minutes from the vehicle pick up location, the timing is perfect. Unfortunately, traffic wasn't kind in this matter and we explained to you that we can't plan for poor chicago traffic on a Saturday morning. We also made several attempts after your wedding to make this problem right and you were provided Contact information to get some form of reimbursement for your bad experience. However, you stopped interacting with us and did not want to further our conversation. As a business in the industry for over 6 years, we pride ourselves on great customer service and high end work with our lighting and DJ services. When you booked your limo with us, we confirmed all of your itinerary several times prior to your wedding. The driver, Edward, is a very safe driver and takes safety very seriously. It's a shame you feel the way you do and we are sorry you feel your experience wasn't the best. We only wish that you would've continued to work this out with us as we were more than willing to make it right with you. We hope you had an overall great night and a wonderful honey money. Congratulations on your wedding and thank you for considering Concept Effects for your big day
