    Donovan MC’d mine and my fiancé’s engagement and did a very tremendous job. He made sure everyone was incorporated into our event in some sort of capacity and made it a lively event. We have booked Donovan for our wedding this upcoming spring and highly recommend him if anyone is looking for an amazing host ! Thank you Donovan!

  • Best decision we made at our wedding was to have a professional MC as part of our day and Donovan was amazing! He knew exactly how to get the crowd hyped up and to keep the energy going. It was such a relief having him there, one less thing to worry about!

    Donovan was the MC at my COVID style wedding when we were just coming out of COVID. Reason I hired him was because I saw him at my buddies wedding. Simply said, he was the BEST MC I probably have ever seen if not, one of the best out there. With him there it's all natural, gets the juices flowing, does not take the wedding / event out of its natural course yet somehow manages to keep the whole crowd involved, laughing and gathered. Timely responses, extremely polite, ask the right questions, understands and reads the situation very well then executes in a grandeur manner. With his experience (ask him how many weddings he has done you will loose your mind!), I guarantee you that even if he meets you on the wedding day for the first time he will carry out the event as if he known you and your family for ten year! If you want your event to preserve its sentimental value and yet have a great memorable time sign Donovan up for your event and you will thank me later!

  • The. Best. Around. Donovan was one of the most critical components of our event. From making sure the event ran smoothly, to keeping the vibe of the guests lively, and to making sure my husband and I were enjoying the whole time, Donovan blew us away with his charisma. He was able to efficiently direct the audience and make everyone listen when needed. We had loads of people compliment his work. Donovan not only functioned as our MC, he went above and beyond to help us with any of our wedding prep questions. The best MC I’ve seen, 100% recommend.

    WARNING! DO NOT HIRE HIM UNLESS U WANT YOUR GUESTS TO HAVE AN AMAZING TIME Donovan is absolutely fantastic. We had a match with him from our very first meeting. He met our expectations- and way beyond. Donovan helped us think through the timeline and small details before the wedding and helped us with his creative ideas. Not only did we love him, but so did our guests. We had such a positive feedback from everyone there. Our guests were entertained and on their feet all night We highly recommend him

  • 10 years ago Donovan was our best man and MC'd our wedding in Jamaica! He was so great and just new to mc'ing at the time! The party we had was talked about for days after by many people in the resort. He had 2 roles that night to be our Best man and our MC and we were very happy with the energy he brought to the reception and for all the memories he helped to create! I would highly recommend Donovan for any wedding celebration. He is a wonderful person and always a lot of fun to be around!

    "We had the privilege of working with Donovan as our wedding MC, and he exceeded all our expectations. From our Sangeet to the Reception, Donovan's energy and enthusiasm kept everyone on their feet, excited and engaged throughout the two-day celebration. His brilliant idea of a 'dance off' between our families became one of the highlights of the night, and even months later, our guests are still raving about it. Not only is Donovan an exceptional MC, but he's also an incredible person. We wholeheartedly recommend him for any event, as he will undoubtedly make it unforgettable."

He has great energy and is an authentic person. He had this amazing game where our guests had to dress up and find their significant other. We literally died with laughter… it was such a hilarious game. He made our night so memorable. We would highly recommend him

    Donovan, our chosen MC for the reception event, unquestionably stole the show with his exceptional skills! With a mixed crowd and a languaage barrier affecting 20% of our guests, Donovan effortlessly put together a program that resonated with everyone. From maintaining complete silence during speeches in a room bustling with over 470 people to adeptly handling technical difficulties, Donovan's professionalism and adaptability shone through. The way Donovan commanded the room, maintaining pin-drop silence during speeches, was truly remarkable. With a large gathering, he demonstrated exceptional control, allowing every word to be heard and cherished. Additionally, despite facing a lengthy program and encountering multiple technical difficulties, Donovan effortlessly adapted and ensured a seamless event flow. His quick thinking and ability to rearrange the program on the spot allowed for a smooth transition between segments. Moreover, despite running behind schedule by 45 minutes, Donovan's effective communication with the venue manager ensured that all necessary arrangements were taken care of, alleviating any concerns and allowing us to fully enjoy the celebration. Donovan's attentiveness and personalized approach made us feel valued and assured that we were in capable hands. He proved to be an outstanding MC who surpassed our initial hesitations and delivered an exceptional experience. We highly recommend Donovan as a top-notch MC for anyone seeking an unforgettable and stress-free celebration!

  • Donovan is one of the best MCs we have seen at work, and we had the pleasure of him hosting our wedding. He brought our events to life with his wit and charisma. Our guests were all smiles throughout our events - dancing, playing games laughing, spinning their napkins in the air. He made our celebration of love even more memorable than we had imagined! He is extremely organized and quickly adapts to the needs of the event. We highly recommend him and are extremely grateful that we chose him, thank you Donovan!

    It’s been a few months since our wedding and our guests still mention Donovan as one of our highlights from the reception. We all loved Donovan’s energy, entertainment and the games, especially the East Indian vs West Indian dance. He made sure everything ran smoothly and made sure that our itinerary was covered in an efficient and timely manner. He made great recommendations on the itinerary to ensure the event flowed smoothly from beginning to end. Thank you Donovan for being part of our special day. We recommend Donovan for your next event!

  • I met Donovan at a friend's wedding couple of years ago and decided to hire him at any cost for my wedding since then. My husband was extremely stunned with Donovan's MC skills. He kept the event going without skipping a heart beat. He was very professional to work with prior to the event. Everyone that came to the wedding could not stop complementing about how the event was well organized and managed, and I couldn't have done it without the help of Donovan. He was very kind, enthusiastic and professional. Having him host our special day was one of the best decision we did and we are so happy with how it all turned out to be. I highly recommend anyone that is looking to host their main event to hire Donovan. Since it is very stressful to plan a wedding, having someone like Donovan host your wedding will ease out your tension and stress. He ensured that the itenary I created went accordingly as planned. We are going to miss Donovan but we wish Donovan all the very best for his future. Can't wait to work with him again. - Anne & Abhishek (October 19, 2019)

    I had the pleasure of experiencing an unforgettable wedding reception for my brother, and I must say, Donovan was simply outstanding! I first saw Donovan perform his MC magic at a family friends reception, and I declared to my brother, that Donovan will be his MC. Donovan’s charismatic and engaging presence set the perfect tone for the entire event. His motto was go with the flow, and it worked. From the heartfelt introductions to the seamless transitions between segments, Donovan kept everyone entertained and enthralled throughout the celebration. Donovan’s witty humor and warm personality created a joyous atmosphere, making everyone feel like they were part of a big, happy family. He also skillfully managed the flow of events, ensuring everything ran smoothly, allowing the couple and their guests to enjoy every moment. It was evident that Donovan put a lot of effort into personalizing the experience, which made the wedding reception feel truly special. Thanks to Donovan’s professionalism and attention to detail, the day became even more magical, leaving a lasting impression on all attendees. Without a doubt, I highly recommend Donovan for any future weddings, as he has the remarkable ability to turn moments into cherished memories.
