My wife Debbie and I (I’m Ray by the way) first engaged Chris Chen in our engagement photoshoot. We are extremely satisfied with his work. All his shots are natural and remarkable. He captures the moment. At first we were choosing other vendors for photography, but in the end we chose Chris because we know he’ll just take care of everything. We also got them for DJ, MC, limo, and projector screen. He and his team are very professional and always on the go. Very quick and efficient! We just love how he took charge and tweaked our schedule. We are also thankful he covered our whole wedding from morning to night! He and his team are highly recommended if you don’t want any stress in your wedding. Thanks Chris!
I am the bride and I just had my wedding at HYATT REGENCY OF LONG ISLAND. We used DJ and MC Ming we were really happy that Dynasty had a trilingual service between cantonese /mandarin and English. Chris and Ming the MC made the party ROCK!!! I am the first out of my friends that are getting married and they went up to Chris Chen for their business cards. So i guess that shows that they know how to bring the music the right way to the crowd! Cheers to DYNASTY WEDDINGS- SPECIAL THANKS TO CHRIS CHEN AND MC MING!!!
Chris and his team were great to work with. Chris was very professional and help guide my husband and I through the whole process. He responded to all of our questions in a timely manner and really worked with our limited budget. The DJ and MC we had were great. They kept our guests dancing all night long. The photo booth was a huge hit at our wedding! Everything about it was so much fun and my husband and I really enjoyed looking through all the photos later that night. I highly recommend Dynasty Weddings!!
Chris Chen and Dynasty Weddings made our Chinese wedding banquet exactly all we hoped for! He listened carefully to our needs and executed perfectly. We had a destination wedding the month before, so our parents hosted a 240 guest banquet which was a mix of family, their friends, our co-workers, our friends from college, our friends from high school, and children. I am Chinese American and my husband is Caucasian, and Chris did a great job of moderating of our interpretation of a traditional Chinese banquet – a cocktail hour, 12 course meal, 1st dances, slideshow, dance performance, and a Chinese game all in the afternoon. Our MC did a nice job of announcing the program in English and Mandarin, and our DJ was impressively managed a flow of music to keep all ages and groups entertained and on the dance floor. Chris’ photography was unobtrusive yet ever present. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the banquet and highly recommend their services.
Our wedding was this past Saturday at Chateau Briand in LI. We booked Dynasty for DJ and MC, ceremony audio, and the reception Slide show. We had an american style wedding, but we wanted to incorporate chinese elements (ie. the tea ceremony), so we needed an MC that spoke Chinese and that understood Chinese traditions. Chris worked out most of the details with us and created the slide show for us. Our MC was Ming. Both were great to work with and are clearly experienced with weddings. Ming is super nice, very patient, and best of all we ran behind schedule and he adapted extremely well. The music selection was great. For our ceremony we decided to change it up and walk out of the ceremony to a remix of here comes the bride, and Chris was extremely helpful with that too. All in all a great experience working with these guys.
Dynasty Weddings made our wedding day spectacular; simply put.
Our wedding took place out at Woodbury Country Club in Long Island, NY on May 19th, 2012. From the ceremony to the cocktail hour through the main ballroom event, Chris Chen and his team did exactly what we wanted/expected and more. They adapted very well to changing schedules and timing, as well as decisions on the fly. Nothing was messed up. And to be honest, my wife and I only met with him once to discuss everything. Aside from sending him an agenda with songs/timing and the day’s schedule, as well as getting him photos for him to compile a slideshow, we didn’t need to do much or worry about anything. Had we had more time to prepare for our wedding (planned it in 3 months), we probably would have gone out of our way to perfect every last detail of the wedding, including the DJ/MC schedule, which would have been completely unneccessary. I can tell that Chris Chen is very well versed in this industry, and has a great deal of experience putting together excellent events, with little or no effort from us, the client. (-: Thanks for that….it saved us a lot of stress.
I would recommend Dynasty Weddings to anyone, whether interracial, white, black, asian…..it doesn’t matter. We were a Lebanese/Polish groom and a Chinese bride getting married, and they were able to cater to us and our party perfectly. 5 out of 5.
Chris did a great job at my wedding! He was our MC and Photographer. I am very picky about the way I do things and exactly what I want and Chris was able to adapt to my taste and needs to have someone speak both fluently in Chinese and English. He did a great job keeping us on time and was very good about finding my husband and I to let us know when things were coming up. He kept the energy up the whole time even though he was working more than 14 hours that day. I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone.
My wife and I were very happy with the job Chris did at our wedding! We used Dynasty for DJ and MC. We needed an MC that was able to speak English and Chinese fluently and he did a good job. The thing we loved the most from Chris was his ability to get people out onto the dance floor. It didn’t matter if they were young or old, everyone came out to the dance floor and partied hard. We’ve had compliments from friends stating that they had the most fun at our wedding and it was all thanks to Chris and crew.
I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone.
Kudos to Chris Chen and Dynasty Weddings for making our wedding day the most memorable experience! After many hours meeting and reading reviews of multiple vendors, we decided to go with Dynasty Weddings. Not only are they at the top of the industry, Dynasty Weddings fine tunes their high standards to cater to your needs. We went with the MC/DJ, photo booth, and photography package. The MC did an amazing job keeping everyone entertained while making sure we were on schedule with our wedding timeline. The DJ was on point and mixed in all of our “must play” tracks. Our guests never left the dance floor. The photo booth was the highlight of the night. Our guests, old and young entertained themselves throughout the night getting creative with the props. We couldn’t stop smiling or laughing when Chris delivered the photo booth pictures. The photo booth is a must for all weddings. Last but not least, the photography service; words cannot express my reviews of our experience with Chris. Unlike many photographers, Chris made the effort to get to know us. He did not take the cookie cutter wedding photos but captured our personality. We will cherish our photos for a life-time.
Dynasty Weddings and crew not only delivered what they promised but went the extra mile to build a friendship. I will look forward to seeing them again at my friends’ wedding.
Dynasty Team is the best! We had a traditional Chinese Banquet in NYC. During our first meeting with Chris and Ming, we had no ideas what we should and should not do on the wedding night. Not only did Chris and Mind took the initiative to inform us of certain things we need to keep in mind, they offered their expertise in all areas that we need to pay attention to. For example, the run down of the night, how to budget time for each event. How we decided to have Dynasty Team was from an actual wedding that my husband and I attended in 2008. At the end of the event, we witnessed how professional Dynasty Team was (I was the MOH of the bride, so I knew how much work they actually did). My then boyfriend, now husband already decided that they will be our MC at our wedding day.
My husband hurt his back 2 weeks before our wedding, and I was very worried that during the night, the groomsmen would go crazy when forcing him to do certain games. Ming did a perfect job to keep all of the unnecessary things that the groomsmen asked my husband to do. Our wedding banquet was a big one, actually it was 400people (40 tables), Ming did a great job for time management for each and every event of the night, he made sure things run smoothly, despite such a big party we had.
We highly recommend Dynasty team to all the newly engaged couples who are planning for their big day. Planning for the biggest day of your life is extremely stressful, but we are sure Dynasty Team will help you through out the process and make every stressful moment into a memorable moment. In fact, we are thinking to have Dynasty Team for our “Trash the dress” session!
We can’t say enough about Dynasty Weddings and Chris Chen Studio Photography. Our guests could not say enough about how awesome the MC and music was at the wedding. So many guests said it was the most fun wedding they have been too and everyone was out on the floor. Ming The MC kept the party moving at a great pace, directed us, and kept the crowd involved. We are still complimented on our wedding months after it was over.
Chris did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. I was more than pleased. During the engagement session, he was very flexible and very creative with how he shot the photos. We took tons of photos, but it was very fun, and they came out amazing. He also was very professional with his response time in the days leading up to the wedding. Any email that I sent, received a timely response, and any change that I wanted to make was not a big deal at all. I can’t say enough about the job he did at the wedding. His prices beat out the other competition…. Chris & his team are the best!!
I had a traditional chinese banquet in NYC, which is usually hosted by a bilingual MC (who usually offer DJ services as a package). Other friends that have gone this route didn’t particularly care for the MC they used, they didn’t show up on time, followed their own format, weren’t professional, etc. I finally decided to meet with Dynasty Weddings – it was the only MC/DJ in the NYC area that I couldn’t find a negative review!
I met with Chris Chen who was very professional and I could tell he had alot of experience. He was enthusiastic and put me at ease right away and answered all my questions – I booked him right away as my MC/DJ. He is also a photographer, I decided to book him for my engagement photos after I looked through his portfolio. The session went great and the photos came out beautiful. Not the standard couple pose, very artistic without being cheesy.
For my wedding day, Chris also provided the ceremony music and kept us on schedule throughout the night. I also bought a gobo and LED lighting package – it transformed the venue dramatically. He also put together a great slideshow (with music) of pics we gave him. He was a fantastic and fun host, everyone asked if he was a friend of ours – my guests felt very connected to him. Added plus is that he wasn’t TOO chinese. The DJ services was great too, they played all my requested songs and people were going crazy on the dance floor. Yes, there was a difference price-wise compared to other companies, but I did not regret one single penny. I had a fantastic wedding and it took alot of stress off me knowing that Chris was around to keep everything in check. I absolutely recommend Chris Chen/Dynasty Weddings for photography and MC/DJ services, even if you are not having a chinese wedding!
Our decision to book our wedding with Dynasty Weddings was one of the best ones we’ve ever made. Although all of the vendors we hired for our night were fantastic, I thought Chris Chen and his staff were exceptional. We were looking for someone who could be a DJ and MC for the night in English as well as Chinese. As simple as we thought it would be, we ended up interviewing with several DJ companies and yet none of them offered what we were looking for. Very often, we came close, but it was not until we met with Chris that we knew right away his company was the one for our wedding.
After our initial consultation, we were able to work with Chris via email, text and phone calls. He is very prompt and never forgets about his clients. I felt he was always available when we needed his advice or assistance. I will never forget how he had put his two cents in when one of our family members tried to put down one of my decisions for the wedding. He made her realize the wedding was about two people, just me and my now husband. Chris understands this and stresses how weddings should really be about the bride and groom. Although families definitely have a part in the planning, it really should be the bride and groom making final decisions. I especially appreciated Chris stepping in to help our families understand this.
It was quite easy to plan out the music selection with Chris. We just sent him a list of songs to give him an idea of what we liked and he did the rest. He did such a great job at sending us all the information we needed to finalize our music plans for the evening.
My only regret regarding Dynasty Weddings was not booking them for his other services like photography, makeup and videography. The vendors we hired were good, but I began to see how professional and outstanding Chris Chen’s staff was. I was simply amazed. A few days after the wedding, Chris sent me a few pictures of the venue that we had taken before our event began. The quality of his photography blew me away. My husband and I were very impressed and will consider Dynasty Weddings in the future for other smaller events. After working with Chris, we know that he is flexible and very fun to make decisions with.
On a personal note, I’d like to thank him for giving my husband the opportunity to learn from his phenomenal photography skills. This proves that Dynasty Weddings is more than a wedding entertainment company – their staff really does care about you and are willing to be there even after your event has been completed. From our wedding, I can confidently say we not only have discovered a wonderful DJ/Wedding Service from Dynasty Weddings, but we also have made a good friend. Thanks, Chris!
In the beginning, we researched a number of companies to photograph our wedding. In the end, Dynasty Weddings was much more professional and personable than the others. Chris is a great guy and possibly the best photographer we have met. He helped us all throughout our wedding with everything. Chris was always available with the click of our Blackberries. He also has great recommendations for other services that he doesn’t provide. After other research, we went with the wedding cake baker and stylist that he recommended with excellent results. His whole team is great and worked really well with our schedule. Sometimes you would hear of other photographers who would get in the way of your celebration just to get to a shot but Chris and Bill got great pictures without interrupting the party. The MC was just exactly what we needed and understood what we wanted with the type of guests we had. He interacted really well with our guests and kept our celebration on track. The DJs were great as well. The music complemented our styles and really kept the dance floor packed. They introduced a good compilation of slow and fast songs. After the wedding reception, we received so many compliments on how much they had fun at our wedding. Some even have said that our Chinese wedding was the best they have ever gone to. We have Chris and his team to thank for it. After our reception, Chris worked immediately on our pictures and his teaser pictures were on his site within days and after seeing them, we cannot wait to see the rest. Thank you Chri
