Don??t use Frederick from Sensational Productions. He??s a rip off. He never answered the phone, he delays appointments and never tells you when a vendor of his decides not to work with him. The end product that he gives you is horrible. If you have a contract with him and haven??t given him that much money, get out of it. It will be worth it in the end. We would have done that if he didn??t have 75% of the wedding cost.

If you do a search on his home address: 7126 W. Cherry Hills Drive, Peoria 85345, you will be able to find all his aliases. His real name is Harlen Cone. He has had multiple business names. They are: Accurate Media, Absolute Best, Advent Of Wedding Art Photography, epiphany photography and now Sensational Wedding Photography. The earliest bad review on Harlen Cone I could find was 2006. Which means he has changed his business name every year, to avert detection of his negativity. He has multiple complaints on the complaint board website and is a fraud.

We met him in November and signed a contract with him. I had done research on his company but nothing came up on Sensational Productions. I asked him for his LLC and testimonials. He did supply me with them. Still, something didn??t feel right. We met with our officiant in January and agreed to have her do our wedding. In March she called us to inform us that she was no longer going to work with him, therefore, no longer going to work with us. We allowed him the opportunity to tell us but after a couple months we confronted him about the officiant. He said she was tripping and doesn??t know why she didn??t want to work with him. We gave him the opportunity to find someone else. It took him another 4 months to tell us he found someone else. After weeks and weeks waiting for this new person to call us, I told him that we no longer wanted to work with this person we haven??t even met and to find us someone new. From the previous hassles, we decided to find our own. Which, she was fabulous.

We met our cake lady and she was great. She was supposed to get a cake topper for us so we called her a couple weeks before the wedding to find out that she no longer wants to work with him. From her side, he owed her so much money for cakes that he didn??t pay her for. She agreed to work with us separately from him. It took us fighting with him for him to finally give us our money back for the cake so that we could pay her. But said he couldn??t give us our money for the efficient because it would mess up his books. Don??t see the difference but that was his excuse. He in turn said he would pay for the security guard that we were required by law to have for the alcohol. By the way, his security guard was also the DJ.

So the week before our wedding we find out that the cake lady hadn??t made our cake. We worked that out but then 3 days before the wedding he told us that the venue had double booked our reception location and he got us a remade instead. I wanted an interior reception. But because it was so close to the wedding, we had to go with that. The remade was in a park full of people enjoying the park and birthday parties. We had no seclusion like we had wanted. The remadas had picnic tables instead of real tables. It was a glorified picnic. We get there around 2pm to find out that the time on our wedding invitations he had told us incorrectly.

Before the wedding started the cake started to melt and Frederick wasn??t going to fix it. That??s not his job. My friends went over there and took care of the cake. He was getting ready to leave and told them ??hey, you are going to watch everything right?? My friend called me and I said no, that is not your job. That is his. Tell him that. I spent so much time on the phone trying to get him to do his job.

The wedding had to start 30 minutes late. When the wedding was about to start, he didn??t even have our boutiques to us yet and got them to us barely before the wedding started. He only had one for us but didn??t have anything for our wedding party like he said he was going to have. He had a cheapy video recorder and a few of the photos were over-exposed. My guests didn??t know where to go because he was a one-man show and no one was directing them to the reception.

The food finally comes and it looked cheapy put together. One of the dishes didn??t even have a spoon. I went to inform him that the spoon wasn??t there and asked him why we had cheap paper plates instead of the fancy plastic ones he was to have there. He said that he couldn??t find enough of the one kind and didn??t want to mix match them so he just got those. They were janky. It was a joke.

The music was way too loud and he didn??t even play what we had discussed. I had to go ask his DJ to play different kinds of music. If it wasn??t for our friends and family, it would have sucked worse.
