I have had the opportunity to work with Ann and her company for 4 years now. She has been very good to work with, provides great value for pricing and the deliverables exceeded our expectations.

I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking to hire the interactive services that she and Big Lyle’s Events offers.

A debut is an old and Traditional Philippine celebration of a girls 18th Birthday, Rachel choose to keep it fun and glamorous with a Great Gatsby theme.This was a wonderful event to shoot, everyone came dressed in elegant period atria. Along with the lovely personal traditions of  the entourage preforming the  Grand Cotillion Dance, the 18 roses presented by her male family members, and the 18 candles where the women close to her give special messages or greetings and a wish for the future there was dancing and of course Pictures.
Looking to  add a new twist and some extra  fun to the party Rachel choose our Green screen open air photo booth. It was  a hit with the young adults, older guests and little ones too.

Ann – many, many, many thanks for yesterday! Everyone LOVES their pictures and loved the idea – what a great way to make sure everyone is involved in the day and such a unique idea! I’m getting a ton of emails today from our carriers letting me know that they’re showing off their pics to others in their offices. You have a GREAT personality and you took a LOT of pics and we at Ottawa Kent wanted to make sure you knew how appreciative we are.

Thanks again for making it such a great day for us!

Seriously, If you want to add a component of complete RIOT to your next event, you HAVE to call in Ann and Big Lyle! What a great addition of silly. Even the stuffiest of people cannot help but get involved in their “Magic Green Screen” I could not imagine a JuiceBall or any event that I produce without them. They are always right on time and ready to put life into everything they do! Thank you Big Lyle’s and Ann for you sincerity! love you, Love You, LOVE YOU!!!!

I couldn’t recommend Ann and Big Lyle’s Party and Event Entertainment more strongly. They were absolutely wonderful and were the hit of my daughter’s bat mitzvah. The kids never tired of lining up to take more pictures and the Big Lyle team was organized and incredibly patient with a challenging crew of 75 13-year-olds. You wont regret this investment in your party. I”m just sorry that I don’t have another excuse to hire them again soon

Bridget Clark Whitney Executive Director at Kids’ Food Basket

Ann has provided photo booth services at our Kids’ Food Basket events. She does an amazing job and our guests have had so much fun creating unique, keepsake photos with costumes and props. I highly recommend Ann and her company, Big Lyle’s Party and Event Entertainment.

Ann and Lyle from Big Lyle’s Big Events are rock stars!

Volunteer Kalamazoo has worked with them for a number of years for two different events that we run each year. They bring the fun to the party! All of our guests rave about the experience. You can tell they put a lot of effort into our event, both in advance of the event — coming up with relevant backgrounds, incorporating our organizations and sponsors and during the event — with great energy, professionalism and smiles. Thanks Big Lyle’s
