The Word on The Street

"Jimmie Espo is absolutely the best! We knew from our initial meeting he was exactly the DJ for us. His confidence and take charge mentality was definitely a sense of comfort for us. We weren’t too picky with music and didn’t give him many requests, he was pretty much on his own and it was up to him to feel the vibes of our guests and go from there. His music choices and flow was perfect! No one stopped dancing and the dance floor was packed through the whole night. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ!"

"I can't say enough great things about John LoConte! We didn't have to think twice about hiring John from 617 Events for our September 2015 wedding at The Hellenic Center in Ipswich, MA. The moment I knew I wanted to hire him was when my friend got married a year before, and her wedding pictures stood out to me among the many weddings we had been to. Upon picking our date, I emailed John for his pricing and availability and he got back to me within minutes. When we saw John on our wedding day, we felt even more at ease with him. He was creative, efficient, and knew exactly how we should pose and where. Most importantly, he made it fun! Our families and bridal party kept approaching us saying how great he was. We absolutely LOVED our engagement and wedding pictures and are SO HAPPY we had John photograph both occasions. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!!"

"Russell Smithe was SUCH an amazing videographer who helped to make our wedding day absolutely perfect! Once you start planning with Russell, you quickly pick up on both his passion for his craft and his knowledge of the wedding industry. You also realize very early on how much he prides himself on the unobtrusive quality of his work - and he truly lives up to his word! He captured every moment without me ever stopping to realize he was taping! Your wedding day has many private, personal, and sentimental moments and you want these captured without feeling as though a stranger is over your shoulder. Russell was able to document all these precious memories for me and Paul without ever being noticed!"

"Bharat Parmar, now of 617 Events, is an amazing photographer...he truly is a professional. He is by far one of the best photographers we've seen and we've received the same comments from anyone who has seen our pictures or wedding album. He took our engagement photos at Piers Park in East Boston. It was a cloudy/overcast day and he was able to capture beautiful photos of us and of the city. He is very easy going and made both of us very comfortable from the beginning. He also turns photos around very quickly which is an added bonus for any inpatient brides (like myself)! Our wedding photos and wedding album came out beautiful! We were sooo happy with Bharat's work and would recommend him to anyone. All of our friends and family have commented on how beautiful the photos came out. He doesn't just take the typical family/bridal party shots but he makes them fun and artistic. And is always looking to capture the perfect moment."

"We could not be happier with the shots provided to us by Roland Silva of 617 Events! He had a plan for the day and executed it perfectly. My now wife and I wanted to get a few night shots outside of the venue and through the course of the night we both completely forgot that we needed to make this happen. Roland respectfully sought us out to see if we still wanted the shots. Thanks to Roland we now have some beautiful pictures outside of the venue just as we had hoped. He also provided us with an amazing engagement shoot where we traveled around the city of Boston to a few areas for some amazing shots. We had a link to the pictures sent to us before we got back from our honeymoon and we love love love the results! I would recommend Roland to anyone planning a wedding or any other event where you would need a photographer!"

"My husband and I planned our wedding in a month. We were so caught up in thinking we could just use an iPod for the music. It sounded like a great idea until I realized that I was down to the wire and I didn't have the right dancing songs to get my guests on the floor. I knew having a DJ will make everyone's night and get people moving. I called 617 Events’ DJ Chris Paul with only 2 weeks left and he saved us. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. So professional and very responsive with answers to our questions. We felt extremely comfortable with Chris. He did such a wonderful job with keeping us informed during the wedding (because we had no idea what we were doing lol) with what was coming next and suggested on how to do things. My guest are still talking about how awesome he was and that they really enjoyed him. We can't thank him enough for being so Awesome!!"

"We got married at the Glen Magna Farms in Danvers, MA on Halloween Night and we had the best wedding ever!! Everyone had so much fun and the dance floor was packed all night long! Our DJ was JC Castaneda from 617 Events and he did an amazing job! He was very professional and flexible and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Thank you to 617 Events and especially JC for giving us a night we will never forget!"

"Where do I even begin!? We chose Franco Valverde as our videographer after talking to DJ Jimmie Espo. We told him what our vision was and he immediately said he had the perfect guy in mind and showed us one of Franco's videos. We loved his work so much we booked him without even meeting him. On the day of our wedding he showed up on time and was super organized. The day went without a hitch and we were even ahead of schedule for everything that we wanted to do, so I never felt rushed or overwhelmed. We just got our trailer video and must have watched it over 20 times already. His work is smooth, tight, and really told the story of our entire day. He made sure to show the smaller details that were important to us and fit the video perfectly with the song we chose. Franco is truly a master of his work and you will not regret choosing him!"

"Heather Littlefield from 617 Events recently did the photography for my wedding and also did my engagement photos, she was awesome and totally understood what kind of look we were going for, we had a small intimate wedding at our church and a dinner at Strega Prime. She captured all the important and special moments, my pictures are amazing and I can't wait to get some prints to give to family members. I couldn't be happier!"
