We hired Special Occasion Events for our wedding on Sunday. We were exceptionally impressed with Rick- His flexibility, energy, and presence were exceptional and exceeded our expectations! He and his DJ, kept our guests having a blast! Compared to so many quotes we received- we felt the value of the service we purchased was amazing! I would hire his company over and over agin! He even let me Karaoke at the end of the wedding! Nothing like a bride rapping Gangsta's Paradise to close out a celebration! Rick- THANK YOU! for helping to make our day amazing! We couldn't have asked for more!May 31, 2017Verified
