Bonnie Evans had the wedding day she had been waiting for all her life.

“It was the best day ever. It turned out to be amazing,” said Bonnie.

She says it was amazing even though the couple had a DJ planned for the big day.

They paid MB Event and DJ Services and its owner Michael Berrios hundreds of dollars for their October 2016 wedding.

Evans says Berrios was recommended to her by her wedding venue.

“He just seems to be very valued in his work,” she said.

Berrios’ company was featured on NBC 6 in 2009. He was also hired to work at the wedding of NBC 6 employees, including Roxanne Vargas. Berrios posted a video of their wedding describing how much fun they were having.

On Facebook, Berrios describes himself as “the best wedding DJ of all time”.

“If you want to be the best DJ in South Florida, you have an obligation to the South Florida Community to live up to that name,” said Evans.

Evans initially gave Berrios a deposit of more than $ 600 to book him for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

In July 2016, Evans said, Berrios called and offered a $ 100 discount if they paid in full. They accepted the offer and gave him her debit card number for an alleged fee of $ 500.

“We immediately stated on our statement that we had been charged twice,” she said. “I thought it was a mistake, honestly.”

She says Berrios acknowledged the mistake and said he would immediately return the $ 500 he overcharged. But months went by and Bonnie says no credit was issued.

“By the time September rolled around, it actually stopped contacting or returning our emails,” Evans said.

So they sent him a letter terminating their contract because Berrios “was unwilling to communicate” or to reimburse them for “the overpayment”.

They booked another DJ for their wedding and ended up calling it NBC 6 Responds.

“I haven’t given up on that,” said Evans. “It’s not so much about the money, but about the principle. Nothing he told us in the last year has come true. “

When contacted by NBC 6 Responds, Berrios said he had been going through a difficult time and plans to pay the full $ 1,600 he owed by August 1. Almost two weeks later, he sent NBC 6 Responds a video mailing a $ 200 cash order to the couple.

“First payment to do all of that,” he says in the video. “I really apologize and I’m sorry.”

Berrios also sent NBC 6 replies a statement that he intends to pay the remaining $ 1,400 within the next 30 days. Regarding the overpayment, he wrote that the “double processing error already made in July 2016 has been reimbursed according to our processor”. The statement goes on to say, “The refund was made according to our CC processor. It wasn’t until later that we found out that it wasn’t.

Evans is unsatisfied with the schedule and filed a lawsuit against Berrios this week in hopes that it will get her money back.
