Leading up to the event, Steve provided a web portal tool that made it extremely easy to pay, lay out the must play and banned songs, and also the timeline of the reception and other important details. Michael McBride was assigned to us through Steve and I have to give a 10/10 rating for him. He was perfect. He sat us aside a week prior to the wedding to get to know us, lay out all the details, and gave us the ultimate assurance that the reception was going to be about us and that he was going to showcase us the best way he can. He was flexible, prompt, and incredibly nice! My only recommendation would be to not book the photobooth option through Cipriano Productions. It was a separate communication that wasn't handled as professionally and the quality wasn't the best. However, that doesn't affect the DJ rating in general therefore they deserve their 5 star rating on all categories! More...

Cipriano Productions gave us the best possible reception experience and for a very affordable price. They worked with us to meet our needs and to make our vision come to life. Our DJ, Michael was very entertaining, knowledgeable, and well-prepared. Of all the little things that we could have stressed about on our wedding day, having a great DJ was not one of them. We trusted Cipriano Productions with an important responsibility on our day and we were not let down. More...

HAD AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE WITH CIPRIANO PRODUCTIONS! Dean and Steve were amazing at our wedding during cocktail hour and reception. We wanted to say thank you so much to Cipriano Productions for providing them with us for our DJ services for the wedding! They were sensational! From the preparation all the way to the live singing and song selection, it was a joy to work with them. It was by the far the best thing we invested in for our wedding. We had a brunch the next day with family and friends and everyone kept saying YOU'RE DJ WAS AMAZING! Everyone was so impressed with his professionalism and his voice during dinner singing all of the songs that got people in the mood to dance and have a good time. Steve was also so accommodating, he had a conversation with Joe's dad during the wedding about Joes grandfather who passed away loved Frank Sinatra and Steve then took it upon himself to start playing some Sinatra songs, very touching on his end. We recommend Cipriano productions to anyone who is looking for an amazing DJ service for their wedding or special event. We cannot thank them enough for everything! More...

I have nothing but good things to say about this company - and for the attractive price. Steve provided a beautiful performance at our ceremony at SNPJ. Although i did not get to hear the processional songs, I did hear our song as well as the exit song and they were perfect. This was a no hassle part of our event thanks to him. And DJ Mike McBride for our reception was awesome. He met with us a couple days before, laid out a plan, and did everything as discussed. Everyone was dancing all night & Mike made sure everyone was happy. The planning form is so much help!! Thank you guys! More...

Our DJ was awesome! He setup on his own while we were busy getting ready for the ceremony. Before we entered the reception, he made sure my wife and I knew the order of events and confirmed everything. He kept checking up on us and followed our timeline! Played all requests and really made the wedding fun! And the live guitar during the ceremony was a nice touch! More...

I had my wedding December 15, 2917 and hired Cipriano Productions to DJ for us. Dave, who actually DJ for us was absolutely amazing! He's been doing this for at least twenty years, and it shows! He dealt with my annoying questions and changes like a champ. All the guests loved him and his music selection. He was the life of the party, and you will not regret it if you hire him! More...

We had Mike McBride DJ our wedding, and he was GREAT! We had a Sunday wedding, so it wasn't a huge party, but he was professional, kind, and played the perfect music during our cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. He even helped make my plate for me, and I could really tell he truly enjoys what he does and considers it an honor to be a part of your day! I cannot say enough great things about Mike. However, we also hired Steve to play our ceremony music, and while the music was beautiful, I cannot say the same for his attitude. Our ceremony ran late due to rain, and he was being pretty rude over something that was completely out of my control. I understand there were some extenuating circumstances, but when in the wedding business you need to be flexible and accommodating. I'm thankful he stayed and set up again after the rain had stopped, but he was even rude to my husband who offered to help get his equipment inside when it started raining. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Mike as a DJ as he was great and professional, but I unfortunately cannot say the same for Steve. More...

We booked Cipriano Productions and I was a little nervous by how inexpensive they were but it turned out to be great! We requested Mike McBride and he was fabulous. He took time to meet with me about a month before the wedding to calm my nerves and go over all of our details. He did everything we asked and provided all of our uplighting. He was able to get lots of people out on the dance floor and everyone had a great time. I'd highly recommend Mike. More...

The one thing my fiance had requested for our wedding was live music, but with the price of bands it didn't look like we could make it happen. Until I found Cipriano Productions! I did the silver package which included the DJ and live guitar for the ceremony, and I also added on a solo piano for the cocktail and dinner hours. Steve was perfect during the ceremony it sounded beautiful! The pianist was just what we wanted and played the right style of music for dinner, I did not catch his name in the whirlwind of they day though! And now the DJ, Manny. He was AMAZING! We had a bit of a late start and the pianist had to leave before dinner was over, Manny was on it and already had music ready to go. He knew exactly what to play to keep the evening going and the people on the dance floor. He even came out and danced with us! I highly recommend Manny he was such a blast! If your looking for a balance between live music and a DJ, Cipriano Productions is the vendor for you they really do have the best of both worlds! More...

We had the Jazz ensemble, acoustic guitar at the ceremony and Mike McBride as the DJ for the evening. I don't think you can find a Better package for the price! My hubby and I missed most of cocktail hour so I can't really speak much to how that went over and I had expected to hear guests talking about it but I actually don't remember any feedback at all from them on it. Mike drove an hour to come meet with me and the groom the week of the wedding (for a 30 minute or so meeting) and he was so personable and you could tell he really loves his job! There were some small things through the evening that made me think Mike may have been a bit distracted (like when he seemed to forget my name when announcing us for our first dance- which I noticed and it's clear on the video but no one else had picked up on that) however Mike kept the dance floor lively and really helped us to have an awesome celebration! Multiple people commented on what a great DJ we had. Steve met with me when I first expressed an interest in his company's services and he was personable and reasonable. Steve did seem a little short after that. There weren't many interactions but I know that when making final payment even my groom commented that he thought Steve was a bit snippy (or impatient)I was also surprised that it wasn't until the morning of the wedding that Steve realized he didn't have my selections for processional/recessional music. I was pretty certain I had provided them but even if for some reason I made a mistake, I would have thought that I would have been contacted earlier in the week vs. sounding alarms the morning of my wedding. I believe it worked out fine (the acoustic guitar was a bit hard to hear from my perspective but I also caught up in the moment and it was outside so I'm not blaming Steve for that) but the last thing you want to do is cause a bride stress the morning of! Overall though I would still have booked with Cipirano productions and I would reccomend them for sure. More...

We literally could not have had a better DJ than Manny for our wedding on June 12. He was professional, well dressed, energetic, a pleasure to work with and so much more! He would even jump out on the dance floor during some of the dances so people who didn't know how to do it could learn! I had submitted a timeline of the events for the reception prior to the wedding, well it was my best guess of timeline, and when for example, the cake cutting wasnt going to happen at the time i said it would (NO fault of his, it was us just moving slower than anticipated), he was amazing at coming to keep me updated and let me know of the time and when we could move things along or ask if i wanted to change something. He even stayed an hour late for us (of course at a cost, that i was happy to pay! which he let me know about politely before agreeing the stay so I wouldn't be surprised afterwards) because we and our guests were having too much fun! I honestly would give him 10 stars if i could. He was great. Highly recommend! We will use him again for our events in the future for sure! And everyone could hear all the music (which I've been to weddings that only the tables close to the floor can actually understand the lyrics) My brothers put together a little surprise performance for my reception and Manny was happy to work with them on it the day of before my husband and I arrived and allow them to surprise me! AMAZING! Thank you so much for being such an amazing part of our day and having such a positive impact on our entire reception. If we could go back and do it all over again, we would not even hesitate for a second to have you as our DJ, thank you so much Manny! More...

I was very happy with my services! I had ordered a photo booth for my reception and as it turned out, Steve's needed maintenance and the manufacturer was not going to be able to have it ready by my wedding day. Steve actually reserved a booth from another local company to ensure I had it for my day! Michael McBride was my dj and he was amazing! He really sat down with me beforehand and listened to what my requests were and really just wanted it to be a fun day. I was very happy and would recommend them to anyone! More...

Wow. We purchased the package which includes one live ceremony musician, a live jazz trio, and a reception DJ. After meeting Mike McBride well before the wedding, I knew he was the DJ to request - so I did. Meeting with Mike the week before the wedding made my husband and I both so much more comfortable. Mike assured us that he would do everything to make the day run smoothly, and boy did he ever. From running out glasses of water to us taking pictures in the sweltering outdoors, to being accommodating to our timeline which changed the day-of, to keeping the crowd dancing, Mike was the best. He made sure to talk to our photographer before every event so she didn't miss a moment.

Although I didn't get to meet him, I must give props to the ceremony guitarist as well. I only had one song request - Canon in D - for my own walk down the aisle. I didn't even know what to pick for the rest. Steve Cipriano assured me that the musician would have some songs up his sleeve, and that was true. The day of our wedding, a huge rain storm was descending upon the area. Luckily after just a few drops, the storm clouds passed us by and the sun came out just in time for the bridal party to enter the outdoor ceremony. It was so touching to hear the guitarist playing Here Comes the Sun as the bridesmaids entered the ceremony area - what a perfect, on-the-fly choice!

Again, I didn't get to hear much of the jazz trio since I was outside taking pictures during the cocktail hour when they were playing, but all of the groomsmen came outside at one point and told my husband and I that the musicians were awesome! My mother was also incredibly impressed by the group, and she can be quite difficult to please.

In closing, I can't forget to mention Steve Cipriano himself. From the very beginning he was always available to consult. He was quite understanding when I messed up the online planning tools a couple of times and always helped me. All around, I don't think the value can be beat.

We used Cipriano Productions for the up-lighting at our reception (at Happy Days Lodge in Peninsula, OH). They were very responsive to emails, and were also great the day of the wedding. They made the venue look SO PRETTY with about 20 purple lights on the beams in the venue and on the back drop on the stage - I gave them vague instruction and just said make it look good. They made it look amazing!! They did a great job setting up, and we got so many compliments on how great it looked. I highly recommend up-lighting, its so worth the money!

A friend of mine referred us to Cipriano Productions, as she used them in her wedding and had Manny as their DJ and were completely happy with everything! So, we called them up and we are so happy that we did! Our favorite vendor by far! Our original request was for a DJ, and we had Mike McBride - who is just fantastic; he makes you the center of the night and does a great job being the emcee - got the correct pronunciation of names, coordinated some timing with the venue, and just overall had us laughing and having a fun time while planning music. Also, very responsive to last minute requests and even when my family wanted to go up on stage to kareoke. Definitely a fantastic DJ! The company also ended up helping us out with some drapery for the entrance, and uplighting - we had so many uplights that it looked perfect. I would recommend trying to be there when they're setting the colors just so you know what to expect; I couldn't be there and felt the color was just slightly off, but still beautiful - and only I as the bride would notice. They also provided us a dance floor; which saved us money compared to our venue. Overall we highly recommend! They are fantastic! More...

We had Mark Anderson as our DJ and he was AWESOME (would highly recommend)!! He did a great job of keeping everything on schedule and making sure everyone had a great time. We received a ton of compliments on the DJ - everyone was out on the dance floor! It was so great, we even paid Mark for an extra hour of music because our friends didn't want to leave the floor! We also rented ~20 up-lights, and Steve's prices beat everyone else we looked at. Overall, we would recommend Cipriano Productions to anyone looking for a super fun and organized DJ!

We felt very comfortable having Cipriano Productions take care of the music for our wedding. Steve Cipriano was very accommodating and he helped us choose a package that would meet our needs. Looking back on our experience, I can honestly say that Cipriano Productions and DJ Mike McBride not only met our needs, but far surpassed our expectations. We chose to have Steve play classical guitar before and after the wedding ceremony, something that we would definitely recommend to anyone. We also opted for the Jazz Trio during our cocktail hour. Steve’s guitar playing before and after the ceremony was amazing. He was more than willing to play the songs we requested, which were not the usual procession or recessional fare. The Jazz Trio was outstanding during cocktail hour as they kept our guests entertained while maintaining an air of class throughout the venue.

We originally met with Mike McBride about one week before our wedding date and it was easy to see why Mike comes highly recommended by Steve Cipriano. His enthusiasm was genuine and not forced. You could tell 5 minutes after meeting him that he was the type of person who enjoys what he does and that joy was very apparent throughout the reception. Mike was very accommodating and very willing to make our night one we would always remember. He was extremely professional, but also laid back in a way that put everyone at ease. He is definitely not your typical, cheesy, wedding DJ. His personality seemed to put everyone in the mood to have a great time. He even fixed my plate at dinner so that I didn’t get anything on her dress! He played the songs we asked him to play and if either of us requested a song, he played it right away.

We have nothing but great things to say about Mike McBride, Steve Cipriano, and the rest of the musicians employed by Cipriano Productions. They exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend them to anyone for your special day!
