Working with Rico for our wedding reception was one of our best decisions. From planning the timeline to music selection, to final walk through, he made the experience painless and not overwhelming. Then at the reception his emcee magic at providing the perfect energy throughout the night is amazing! We received many compliments from our guests for Rico and his DJ. His warm and sincere friendly, energetic personality, and his amazing talents as an emcee, DJ, and dancer made for an unforgettable experience for everyone attending. We give the highest recommendation possible for Special Occasion Events Inc.!

Wedding Coordination

Rick was awesome! I had a small wedding but he turned my reception into a total dance party like no other. 5 stars for you, Rick and your team. My family members and friends were so impressed and all said amazing words about him. If you are looking for an MC, look no farther. Maggie and the DJ were outstanding too. Rick's coordinating and hosting skills are not just professional but he was also very compassionate making sure that I and my fiancé were comfortable and guests were well attended. At the start of the wedding planning all the way to the end of the wedding day, Rick was very detailed and organized. Maggie was also sweet, like a sister helping us out and making sure things are flowing smoothly. I had very good feedback from guests saying that they had so much fun! All thanks to Rick and his team. FYI Special Occasions Events is also affordable, you will be getting more than your money's worth! Thank you, Rick -- from Ross and I.

Wedding DJ

I just finished celebrating my daughters wedding. We had interviewed 11 Mc/Dj before deciding on Rick Mangram, Special Occasion Events. If you are considering someone to MC a wedding or event, look no further. I have been involved with large city events and personal corporate events, and I have never experienced anyone of the caliber of Rick. His personality, energy, professionalism and attention to detail is exceptional. I had numerous guests come to me and tell me that Rick was awesome. Even my wife, who is very demanding thought Rick did and outstanding job! Believe me, if you want someone to MC a special occasion , look no further, Rick and his staff are the ones you want to hire!!! Best wishes with your event, Dr. Don Newberg
