    Incredible Wedding DJ! Our daughter’s wedding was the best because Anthony is the BEST. Our Pennsylvania and Virginia guests are still talking about the wedding and the incredible DJ/ MC. Anthony engages the crowd so well because he takes the time to know who he is going to be entertaining. His service is personal, fun and sincere. We couldn’t imagine planning our daughter’s Gunnison, CO wedding from Pittsburgh, PA without the confidence (from a one time meeting) we had in Anthony to coordinate the ceremony music, the reception music, to engage the crowd during pictures/cocktails, and to delightfully announce all the reception activities throughout the evening. It was refreshing to work with Anthony and witness the camaraderie he has with the IBar Ranch staff. Words cannot express how much we appreciate Anthony and his role in the memories we will forever have of our daughter’s wedding at the IBar Ranch in Gunnison. ~ Renee and Ken Squire

    Anthony did an incredible job as emcee for our wedding reception. Prior to our wedding, Anthony was very professional to deal with and easy to communicate with. We met with him to go over the timeline of events for our reception, and he asked some good questions to ensure we and our guests had fun, were amused, and informed on any key details. The day of our wedding, Anthony’s positive energy kicked off our reception in the best possible way. Our guests felt his high energy and were cracking up at his jokes. Throughout the night he was hilarious, both with interludes between speeches and witty impromptu jokes. My new wife and I were laughing along with our guests all night. Later, one of our guests (my boss in fact) commented, “That guy (Anthony) was bordering on comedic genius!” I even noticed our wedding coordinate laughing at his jokes. Anthony ensured that everything planned went smoothly and he even worked with our DJ to queue up several key song requests. We had an amazing time at our wedding and so did our guests, largely in part to the awesome job Anthony did as our emcee. Highly recommended!

    I would like to take a moment to recognize our wonderful wedding MC. I have employed a few MC’s in my time but Anthony Poponi takes the cake.

    We hired Anthony to be a standard MC for our wedding and from that first day we knew we had made the right decision. He went right to work. Anthony emailed us to learn about the families, guests, cultures, dynamics and many other aspects of the attendees. He wanted to get “a feel for the crowd”. This was amazing since we had two completely different types. To me, this is pretty amazing for an MC.

    When the amazing day came I was surprised to see Anthony there at the event hours early to get a feel for the place and offer a helping hand. When the time came for me to get ready I knew I was going to be so busy that I couldn’t worry about what was needed. Thinking back, I can’t believe I was ever even worried about it. We were in such good hands.

    He was such a hit with the guests!
    Even though I was very busy during the wedding, there were a few parts that stood out. Two of which were amazing and convince me we had made the right decision to hire Anthony. The first was when a friend was so enamored with Anthony’s style of entertainment that he asked where I found him and if he could fly Anthony to the east coast for his own upcoming wedding. The second was during the dinner when Anthony kept the crowd laughing and entertained between ceremonial to-do’s. This was not an easy task. There were two very different age groups as well as two significantly different cultures. He has an amazing ability of reaching every demographic and get the crowd involved.

    Anthony is very professional and such a fun person to have in front of a crowd. He is truly the life of the party. He is a wonderful public speaker and very charismatic.

    I would like to summarize by recommending Anthony not only for a wedding MC but any position that would put him in front of a crowd.

    Mahalo again for your time Mr. Poponi.

    Anthony is both a great MC and wedding officiant for any bride and groom looking for a fun and upbeat day. As a wedding planner, Anthony allowed me to focus on the larger picture while he focused on the event flow and entertaining the crowd. I had the pleasure of working with Anthony during a circus themed wedding where he embraced the atmosphere and role. It would be my pleasure to work with Anthony again.

    BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!! (And best emcee for the job!) Anthony demonstrated professionalism, attention to detail, and hilarity throughout our entire event. We had a vintage circus themed wedding, which was pretty casual and light-hearted, and he was perfect for the job. His witty banter kept our guests entertained throughout the ceremony and reception. Thoughtfully, Anthony kept his humor kid friendly, as we had several friends and family members with youngsters. We couldn’t have imagined a better experience – I highly recommend Anthony as an officiant, an emcee, and a host.

    You just don’t get any better than Anthony. He is truly the master of ceremonies. We had him Emcee our wedding in Estes Park, CO. Not only did he entertain the crowd, he added such a personal touch and got to know a lot of the people involved. He found out cool pieces of everyone’s story and related them all together for a spectacular evening. First Class!
