  • 196 events was amazing to work with. They are professional and respond quickly to any and all questions. They have a great website that keeps everything organized and easy to plan your perfect night. Their pricing was amazing. I had to cancel my wedding due to COVID-19 but they were so kind and understanding about the situation. I will definitely come back to use them in the future if possible.

    We are just heartbroken for you and all of our couples being impacted by COVID-19. With so much uncertainty right now I'm glad we were able to set your minds at ease. Thank you for the kind words and for choosing us to be a part of your wedding celebration. We wish you and Cameron the very best! Stay safe and healthy! -Nikki

  • Where do I start?! 196 is absolutely amazing!! Devail and Nikki are the most down to earth people we have ever met!! We hit it off on our first meeting and we texted them before we left the parking lot to let them know that we wanted to work with them. They were very responsive to my emails and text messages and only wanted what was in our best interests! On our wedding day they surpassed our expectations!! Our guests did not want to leave the dance floor and didn’t want the night to be over!! Though there were just a few snags along the way, Devail and Nikki kept it very professional and fun!! I sweated out my hairstyle, that’s how much fun I had and it was all thanks to 196 events!! If you’re looking for a DJ that’s going to keep the party going, then give 196 events a call: you will NOT be disappointed!! P.S. they have the coolest photo booth as well!!

  • BEST PHOTO BOOTH EVER!!!!!!! Literally the only thing I can say is that my biggest wedding regret is not getting in the booth myself enough! The pictures are amazing, this couple is amazing, everything is TOP NOTCH!!!! Gorgeous pictures, modern set up, friendliest staffing ever - not only should you hire them, but you should also tell your DJ and wedding planner to encourage people to get their butts over to the booth as much as possible - because people are going to go crazy for these pictures! Also, the team is SO easy to work with and will find you the PERFECT backdrop and PERFECT photo booth strip design. SO patient. SO kind. So, I'll say it again - BEST PHOTO BOOTH EVER!!!!

  • Devail was the best! We had what some might call a smaller wedding, so I was a little worried about keeping people on the dance floor...but Devail was great about playing the music we liked, getting people motivated, and even getting on the dance floor with our guests!! 10/10 would recommend for any other bride in Hampton Roads!

    What an awesome review! We really appreciate you and Derek for letting us take part in your wedding. Small group our not, we had a great time celebrating with you! It was a pleasure to meet you both.

  • 196 events really made a huge difference at our Christmas party! The music selections were really great and the photo booth....AWESOME!! It's was so much fun creating memories and fun photos with the props they provided. The best part was the instant gratification of having the photos texted directly to your phone w/ the option of selecting individual photos that they would either email or upload to your social media pages soon afterwards. 196 events is run by an awesome couple who bring a lot of event experience to the table and who are pros at providing excellent customer service and who are dedicated to making every event they service A GREAT ONE!! I would recommend over and over and I definitely plan on using their services again!! #happy customer #hirethem #youcanthankmelater

  • I give Devail and Nikki a 5 out of 5 because they did an amazing job. They were so responsive and so positive 24/7. When the wedding came around they were 100% prepared and did a great job getting the crowd to dance. He even mixed Spanish music into the bunch because of our bilingual crowd! I highly recommend 196 events!

  • Devail and Nikki were amazing to work with from beginning to end. They worked hard to ask the probing questions during our two meetings that were needed in order to personalize our wedding reception. Devail acted as DJ and emcee, keeping the atmosphere fun and festive. Several of our guests commented on how 196 Events wowed their expectations and they enjoyed the musical mix. Thank you so much for helping to make our reception an amazing time and memory. Love you both!

  • Devail and his wife Nikki were a joy to work with. They were extremely helpful, extremely courteous, and just plain fun. Our guests had a blast with their photo booth and Devail had the dance floor filled the entire night. We would highly recommend them to any other wedding.

  • 196 events were perfect for my husband and I event. We had a vow renewal March 17th, and Mr. and Mrs Echols from the start were very professional. If I ever have another event I will definitely use them again, and highly recommend them to all.

    Thanks Jennifer! I had a great time at your vow renewal! Blessing to you and Inalbert.

  • Kaitlin and I wanted to thank you and your wife for everything! We expected a dj to play the dance songs and play some tunes for the dance floor, but you guys went way above that and really helped keep things organized and moving along. And getting out on the dance floor and getting involved and getting others involved was more than we thought, it really turned the night into a great time for everyone. Thank you for your help in making our wedding such a fun time. We have nothing but great things to say and we will be recommending you to anyone!

  • 196 Events is amazing! They bring so much fun and professionalism. I especially loved the photo booth. The fact that you can easily text your photos straight to your phone and have them within seconds is awesome! The photos were also high quality, much more than what you would expect from a photo booth. I highly recommend them for a wedding, party or any event for that matter.

  • Mr Echols was the DJ at my daughters wedding this past Sunday. We had a smaller group of about 110 guests from the very young to the very old. This man has the talent, charisma and timing to get all of them and I mean all of them on the dance floor. We had at one time 4-5 different groups dancing "off the floor" because the dance floor was full. If you are considering a DJ, I can assure you this man will have the party going until you are forced to close it down as we had to. He was and is worth every penny he ask for. I would hire him again in a instant and pay up for the privileged. Mr Echols, THANK YOU for giving my daughter the reception of her dreams... My hat is off to you sir!

  • 196 Events is by far the best wedding entertainment company in Virginia. They are extremely friendly and professional. Very easy to work/communicate with. Email and phone response time was prompt and informative. Played great music throughout the cocktail hour and reception. Our guests were on the dance floor all night, as were we - the bride and groom. We are so grateful to the 196 Event team for all their hard work, dedication, and attention to detail. My wife and I were lucky enough to work with Devail and the entire team. Thank you again!!!

    Thanks Rich! We thoroughly enjoyed your wedding. Blessings to you and your family.
