We used their DJ and Interactive Photobooth services and LOVED them. The music was great and we have great photos for our personal album.
Thank you to Chris, Tentai, and Jim for helping make our day so much fun! :)
Amazing DJ package and performance
Photography and DJ services for our wedding
Grindstone for the Win
So much Fun!
Will make it the best experience wedding EVER!
We chose a 'boothless' photo booth service, that still included a photo booth AND allowed the photo booth reps to roam and take photos of guests on the dance floor! And everyone who input their contact into their camera received their photos on their phones immediately - they were so happy to have them so quick 😊
Curtis kept people on the dance floor ALL night with the music. There was no time our dance floor was empty! If Curtis played a song that no one was dancing to, he faded it out quickly and chose another song that resonated with the crowd. And he was so patient and accommodating when people asked him to turn the music up or down. Very professional!
Everyone told us they had such a great time and that it was one of the BEST, most FUN weddings they have ever been to!
We can't thank Grindstone Productions enough for the wonderful experience that night and the amazing support/communication throughout the past year. I promise you, Chris will be there every step of the way and will help you plan the best time for you, your reception and your guests. I probably asked Chris a million questions; asking for his expertise and opinion on the ideas I had and he was so generous to provide his thoughts and answers as he has so much experience behind him. He even made a custom shortened song of 'Butterfly Kisses' for me for my father daughter dance song because I didn't want to dance for the full 5 minutes of the original song - it was perfect!
I am so grateful we connected! Looking forward to working with them again for future events 😊
Great choice for DJ and Photobooth
They Did Great
Amazing/professional & fun
It was a lot of fun thank you very much ☺️
Overall we had a great night with them on board!
The dance floor was full all night, and the pictures on the navy sequence backdrop are great!
Chris was very responsive by email and always got back to me quickly when I had questions. The photographer is a new service for them, so I did make a suggestion on what I would do to improve the service. Again, Chris was very responsive, this is the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 on the quality of service.
