    Amazing!!!

    DJ Paul was incredibly professional. He went with what we wanted but also gave great suggestions and kept the night on track. So grateful.

    Thank you Giselle & Jonathan! Paul had a great time with you both and your guests were super fun. You looked stunning in your gown! We wish you all the best of everything in your future together.

    Platinum DJ company is Winnipeg - mixed review

    When booking our wedding at St. Boniface Golf Club, they have vendors they work with that are built into the packages you book. We experienced mixed reviews with some of those vendors as well. For example, working with the DJ company, Platinum Productions was not a great experience. We booked them for our social (wanting to try out a DJ because we were going to have them as our wedding DJ) and that was a weird experience (Paul the DJ was great, however!!). Wedding followed the same experience despite their efforts to give good service. Company was pushy even though they mean well and the level professionalism was not there.

    Platinum Productions's reply:

    Hello Sabina
    We are very sorry that Platinum Productions came across as pushy as that is never our intention. We try to give couples as many options as possible based on budget and wants and be as clear as possible in our communication. This is a 24/7 commitment to our clients to ensure we are providing the best level of service and when we fall short, it both hurts our livelihood and reputation. We will take your review to heart and endeavor to make necessary changes to the next couple. All the best in your future together.

    Fantastic!

    We had our wedding at St.Boniface Golf Club and had Platinum Productions for our DJ. They made the night so much fun that we had people dancing until 1230! They played every song we requested and made it fun for different generations. I am a huge fan of BSB and they played tons which I was so thankful for! Definitely recommend them for any event!

    Platinum Productions's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words Danielle & Jared. Your event was a lot of fun for DJ Pat. All our best to you both

    Partied all night

    I had a great experience with this DJ at my wedding. We used direct billing through bridges golf course, so payment was very easy. He did a great job of announcing our bridal party, the cake cutting, and the first dances. He took song recommendations all night, which kept all of our guests very happy! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night and I couldn’t have been happier. Thanks platinum productions for the awesome experience!

    Platinum Productions's reply:

    DJ Paul is such an important part of Platinum Productions and he is thrilled that you both had such a great time!!

    Amazing experience

    We used Leo from Platinum Productions for our MC/DJ this July for our wedding at Fort Garry Hotel. We had come recommended by our planner when a family member bailed on us for MC duties. We were hesitant at first to use a non family member for MC services so we reached out to Platinum to see if we could meet with Leo before making any decisions. We met at a local restaurant lounge where we quickly realized that Leo was the real deal. He was extremely funny, outgoing and understood exactly what we were wanting. He offered ideas that we had not even thought about doing. After that meeting, we met with Leo 3 more times to go over details and he maintained constant contact with us by phone and email to ensure he was always in the loop of the planning. He worked hand and hand with our planner to organize, and set up the entire evenings timeline so that it flowed naturally and timely. The day of our wedding, we had a last minute situation with one of our bridesmaids that caused huge drama and necessary changes to the timeline. Leo handled it professionally and made a uncomfortable situation bearable with his quick witted humour. The entire reception ran smoothly and much better than we could have ever hoped for due to Leo’s attention to detail and classy demeanor. It was not the cheapest route to go for MC services but it was so worth the investment and we encourage anyone that is hesitating for a second to jump on DJ Leo’s services if he is available

    July 11th Wedding

    My husband and I had a terrific experience working with platinum production at our wedding (July 11, 2020). Despite the challenges of wedding planning through a pandemic, Kelly was very responsive and patient with our every changing plans. Could not say enough good things about our DJ Karl! He was so professional and personable! He made an effort to play music we requested, even if it wasn't the typical wedding music. He chatted with many of our guests to get an idea of music the crowd wanted, which was amazing as our dance floor was full all night! We opted for the full bistro light package and were very pleased with how they looked. We received many compliments from our guests on the lighting, it was beautiful! Overall I would recommend Kelly and the Platinum Production team to anyone looking for DJ services and lighting!

    Platinum Productions's reply:

    Thank you for your beautiful words and we are so happy that everything went above expectations. This has no been an ideal world in 2020, especially for any couple planning a wedding. You both are total troopers for proceeding with your special day despite all the obstacles. From the entire Platinum Team- we wish you & Kevin a pandemic free future together.

    Platinum productions - Social Review

    The DJ service was excellent and DJ Mike had the party going all night long. Throughout the night I could hear people complimenting the DJ and the music that was playing. We would definitely work with Platinum productions and again and would recommend Mike in a heartbeat.

    Platinum Productions's reply:

    Hello Jenna
    Thank you for your kind words- DJ Mike is a hugely valuable part of the Platinum team and he had a blast!

    Review of Platinum Productions

    Great DJ, followed through on requests. We had to change our program for the evening and bump up some stuff which was accommodated. The only downfall was the music wasn't played at the right time during entrances but that was on our MCs faults for calling up the wedding too quickly. Overall, the experience was great, everyone had a great time dancing and had a really good time.

    Jennifer L

    I just wanted to write a small review in regards to our wedding back in September. We booked DJ Paul from Platinum Productions based on reviews we read and we were extremely pleased with our experience. We had a sit down meeting with him a month prior to our wedding. He came up with great suggestions not only about timeline but also about music suggestion about father daughter / mother son dances to cake cutting, he was super helpful. We even took him up on his unique kissing games to entertain our guests during dinner and we must say , watching my dad trying to moonwalk, to the pre-dessert conga line, to this day , our guests are still talking about it. Thank you again DJ Paul from Platinum Productions !!!!!

    i would highly recommend

    We used Platinum Productions for our backyard wedding this past August and we can’t say enough good things about it. They gave us advice ahead of time on room layout which was so helpful to us. The dj arrived early to do his set up and then hung around with the groomsmen until the ceremony started. He did the ceremony flawless, even with an officiant that was being a bit of a diva and not wanting to use a microphone. He was vey gentle but firm that the microphone was important for guests to hear everything and they did! During dinner, he has some unique ideas on games to entertain the guests and it was hilarious as he got my reserved uncle up to the dancefloor and literally had him laughing so hard he fell to the ground. We had a very specific idea of what we wanted for music and he followed it to a T! No Drake was going to be played at my wedding, even it there was a number one song at that time. Our guests stayed much longer than we thought they would because the music was enjoyable and the dj was truly fun. You could tell he enjoyed what he was doing and I don’t regret anything about hiring them. I have recommended the same dj to so many co-workers and friends as I hope to see him at every event we go to. The dj’s name was Carl.

    Platinum Productions's reply:

    Thank you so much Madison! It was a pleasure dealing with you and Scott and your entire family. Best of everything in your future together.
