Vendor Reveal: MESSINA PRODUCTIONS, INC.

WELCOME to the first in our new series of “Vendor Reveals”.  Through our Disneymooner forums we’ve found our members have used a number and variety of Vendors for their Disney Wedding and we’ve been asking those Vendors to reveal just a little more about their business……. and themselves!

Our first Vendor Reveal falls to a DJ from the Walt Disney World Wedding circuit….

What is the name of your business/service and what is your offering?
MESSINA PRODUCTIONS, INC.
~ A full service entertainment and production company that specializes in weddings; special events.
NEWLY PUBLISHED BOOK: “WEDDING PERFECTION” – The Art of Creating the Perfect Wedding

What is your name? SCOTT MESSINA

DJ Scott Messina

What makes your business/service unique?
Being one of Walt Disney World’s premier entertainment vendors, we have had the unique privilege of working with top celebrities, thousands of Disney Wedding Couples and Fortune 100 Companies.

*Messina Productions prides itself with making people happy, on the happiest day of their lives, at the “Happiest Place on Earth,” and we hope we can do the same for you!

How did you get started and how long have you been doing this?
Messina Productions, Inc. was founded in Maryland and officially incorporated in 1992. It then became a Florida Corporation in 1999. When I first performed “Ride Like the Wind” by Christopher Cross live at my 7th Grade Talent Show {and heard the crowd scream} is when I knew that entertainment and production would be my destiny. Both of my parents were {and still are} heavily active in the Performing Arts, so I guess you can say it’s in my blood.

When not working a wedding at Walt Disney World (or another venue for that matter) what are you doing?
I am what you call an Entertainment Renaissance Man, who is on a mission! With several ventures in the works, my latest creation is a newly published book entitled, Wedding Perfection – The art of creating the perfect wedding.
This professionally written book is an on-the-go reference guide, wedding planner, and therapist rolled into one. If you are getting married, or know someone who is, Wedding Perfection is a must read and can be downloaded on Nook, Kindle and iBooks. Click here to learn more.

What is your favorite part about your job?

  1. Helping to make people happy on the most important day of their lives
  2. Appreciating the fact that I party for a living and get paid to do so.
  3. Feeling as if I am on World Tour (thanks to Disney’s multi-cultural marketing efforts), but rarely need to leave Orlando.

What types of wedding packages do you offer Disney brides?
Since MPI is under an entertainment agreement with Disney, all you have to do is personally request Messina Productions’s DJ services with your Disney Fairytale Wedding Coordinator, and all will be handled from there. (It’s that easy!)

*We are in the process of launching “Messina Couture Weddings” where brides can book our expert team to custom handle all of their elite wedding plans from finding specific locations, photography, video services and entertainment; to decor, transportation, ceremony, reception and after party production. Disney and Non-Disney locations Included.

What is your favorite wedding trend right now in relation to your business/service?
I really like how couples are starting to think outside the box by using technology to its fullest. I was DJing a Disney Fairytale Wedding a couple of months back and saw this guy on the dance floor with his laptop. I had no idea who he was or what he was doing, but later found out that he was streaming the wedding live to over 900 people who were tuning in and chatting about it. At first I was concerned because of privacy issues, but later learned that the bride was all about it and wanted to share her special day with other Disney Wedding Fans. It ended up being great free advertising for me as I rocked a wedding of 80 or so people, and 900+ were there to experience it as well. To learn more about using wedding technology, make sure to check out Chapter 10 (Achieving a Hi-Tech Wedding) | Wedding Perfection.

What’s your favorite thing about doing Disney weddings?
The level of perfection and attention to detail that Disney Fairytale Weddings offer is unmatched, in my opinion. The team work at Disney is amazing, and being able to do my part by helping people experience the “Happiest Place on Earth” at the highest level is truly rewarding.

What was your strangest request when working a Disney Wedding?
It wasn’t exactly a wedding request: I was doing a reception for the Prince of Saudi Arabia and Disney producers asked me to wear a Prince Charming like outfit. – it was pretty funny…

Prince Scott Messina

What’s your most memorable moment that you have taken away from a Disney wedding?
My most memorable moment is when Disney’s Fairytale Weddings and WEtv produced a one hour special with Host David Tutera, and out of the (5) weddings that they featured, ALL (5) were my weddings. Not sure if having me assigned to MC/DJ for every featured wedding was coincidence, but I am sure that I was honored and grateful for the opportunity to represent Disney’s Fairytale Weddings on a worldwide television platform.

JUST FOR FUN – we asked Scott to answer these questions

If you were getting married at WDW where would you have your ceremony and reception and why?
Ironically, in Chapter 2 of my book, “Wedding Perfection” there is an entire segment written on Destination Weddings that was approved by Disney legal. All Disney locations at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL are wonderful, but my top picks are as follows:

Ceremony:
(1) The Wedding Chapel overlooking Cinderella’s Castle
(2) Italy at EPCOT

Reception:
(1) The Grand Floridian Resort gives couples the truest feeling and sense of Disney traditions.
(2) Living Seas at EPCOT is an awesome and unique location
(3) Napa Room (California Grille) – Best overall view of the Magic Kingdom/Fireworks

Who is your favorite Disney character and why?
Mickey Mouse is my favorite character because he is my BOSS! – lol

Which is your favorite Disney attraction and why?
I have always loved the Carousel of Progress found in Tomorrow-land at the Magic Kingdom. It was Walt’s FIRST exhibit back in the day, and has existed ever since. It brings back great childhood memories of my family taking me to Walt Disney World, when we were tourists back in the day.

FINALLY

Why should a member of our Disneymooner Forums choose your service?

One thought on “Vendor Reveal: MESSINA PRODUCTIONS, INC.

  1. Scott was the Dj at our LSS reception in 2006 and did a great job. The party never stopped thats for sure. I think people were even dancing during dinner – they couldn’t stop. Thanks for a great reception!
