  • Bryan with Concept Effects was great! I looked into several different uplighting companies and I’m really glad we chose Concept Effects! Bryan was super friendly and prompt to respond to e-mails. I was really on the fence about whether it was worth to pay that much for uplighting and I’m so glad we did it! Yes, it can seem expensive, but it totally changes the feel of the room! Bryan even met us at our venue (Germania Place) in the city and brought a test light so we can see what the venue would look like with it and pick out a color we thought would be good. No other company was willing to do that, they just told us, “Yay, we’ve worked there before, we know what to do”. Concept Effects was one of best priced companies we found and after talking to Bryan several times, you knew that he wasn’t trying to scam you into a package. He worked with our venue layout and made everything so beautiful. Great decision to do uplighting, and a great company to work with!

  • Great company to work with. Fast response, reasonable prices. The provided lighting at my daughter's wedding along with the limo and busses. Would use them again. Bryan is very easy to work with and got back to me within minutes with answers to questions.

  • Concept Effects did an amazing job setting up for our wedding....and it was all the way down in Florida! We were so impressed with the way they handled everything from the beginning. The lighting we wanted was a specific kind of plum purple that they got spot on! We loved the way our reception looked! Our guests were as impressed with the way the colors and lighting looked as we were! The DJ was amazing. We've been to a number of wedding in which the DJ just didn't seem to be on right page as the wedding guests, but this one was! He played the right music at the right time. The transitions from song to song were smooth! Everyone at the wedding danced the entire night! We really appreciated their level of communication and understanding. We're pretty picky when it comes to certain things, and they understood what we wanted! They were as concerned about our concerns as we were - and that is why they're great at what they do! Thank you Concept Effects! You did a spectacular job ... Read more

  • Bryan and Concept Effects were everything that he promised. I couldn't imagine having to take care of all the things he took care of for us at our wedding. We hired Bryan to do some lighting, a "dance in the clouds" and a confetti canon for midnight. Bryan brought the party to another level. He took over on the day of the wedding coordinating with everyone, the venue, the dj, the lights.. He took it all under his arm and ran the show for us. Couldn't have been more perfect.

  • Concept Effects provided lighting for our wedding. We had string lighting (lanterns) and up-lighting throughout our reception room. It was absolutely gorgeous and really made the event feel special. Bryan was a breeze to work with, and was VERY responsive.

    Whitney, we had a pleasure working at the Jofferey Ballet Studio with you. The room ended up looking better than I could have ever imagined. I am very happy you felt the same way.

  • Bryan and his team were wonderful to work with! They brought great ideas, listened to the look and feel I was going for and was able to create a lighting concept that took my wedding from nice to absolutely beautiful! They were also flexible when tight timetables presented themselves working with about 2/3 the time originally planned and not compromising on any of the look.

    Jillian, it was a pleasure working with you. I am glad you were happy with the end result

  • Bryan at Concept Effects was really great to work with. I didn't want accent lighting that was very dramatic or tacky. He met us at our venue three different times so we could look at the colors of the accent lighting and figure out where the pin spot lighting would be placed to show off our floral centerpieces. Bryan's pricing cannot be beat, nor can his accommodating or professional nature. He wanted everything to be absolutely perfect for us and we cannot thank him enough. He even had the accent lighting coral color in the ceiling of the lights in our venue. He made my vision become a reality and for that I am forever grateful. Bryan is very talented and has an awesome vision. We would recommend him to everyone!

  • Bryan did good. He was responsive in a timely manner. The lighting package was awesome! Not to mention he worked with us on pricing, a major plus for a vendor. The only complaint we have is that he subcontracts the transportation and they were no good leaving concept effects looking bad until it was further explained. Bryan went above and beyond to right any wrongs. Ty!!

    Jeff/Melissa. It was a pleasure working with you to make your wedding extra special. The limo was a bit disappointing but I'm glad I could fix the problems you guys had. I hope all is well with both of you and look forward to hearing from you again

  • I really enjoyed working with Bryan. He was open to my vision, allowed me to buy my own twinkle lights around Christmas time to save money, and the outcome was beautiful and professional. It was exactly what I wanted. Lighting along a unique ceiling line. He worked with my wedding coordinator and the catering manager at the hotel to fit needed time frames. I would highly recommend Bryan for lighting for your event. The only downside, he was a bit more expensive than I wanted to pay but he did work with me at price and we came to a mutually agreed upon number. We had our wedding at hotel in the suburbs of Chicago.

  • Bryan and the team did a great job of making our reception location look wonderful, especially on the extremely short notice we gave them. The uplights and dance floor wash were a hit, and got several compliments from people. Appreciated Bryan's experienced input during the walkthrough as well as his approach to the situation, in terms of not trying to just sell me products/services. He talked to me in terms of what we needed, rather than what he wanted to sell...no pushiness, a rare trait to find in the wedding industry.

  • The Concept Effects limo was perfect for the end of our wedding night! The limo was huge and looked awesome inside. The price was great compared to other limo services in the area. My husband and I loved it! The chauffeur arrived early and was willing to drive in a kind of circuitous route so we had more time to relax and enjoy some champagne. The only minor issue was that, a few weeks before the wedding, we changed to a different hotel. We let Concept Effects know that we had a different destination, and sent them updated directions. However, on the night of, the chauffeur still had the original hotel as our destination. Luckily, it didn't end up being a big deal--we just directed him to the new place and everything was fine. We would definitely recommend Concept Effects for limo services to anyone!

  • I was in a jam as my THEN fiance left me with the duty of finding wedding decor and limo service for our wedding. A simple google search and a few clicks later, I found Bryan's company to be the only stop I needed to go. He contacted me in a timely manner and always kept in contact with me whether it was by email or by phone. He offered suggestions and laid out what his company offers. He made it as seemless as one can get given the nature of our situation. Bryan personally kept in contact with me even during the week of the wedding to finalize everything for the big day. Throughout this entire process, I'm the type of person who is reluctant on spending quite a bit of cash without seeing the return right off the bat. BUT that statement was out the window on the day of our wedding. His words and vision he layed out for us during our consultation do no justice on how amazing it actually turned out. We were stunned at the way he brought the rest of the reception hall to life with his... Read more
