    Rick did an AMAZING job for our wedding in September. He was extremely helpful and very quick to respond with answers and feedback during the planning process as well. My family members and friends still talk about how much fun he was. His energy was incredible and I could not be happier with what he did for us. I would recommend him and this company to anyone looking for an amazing party for a great price!

    Loved loved loved Rick and his team! He literally did everything with the biggest smile on his face, made sure we were always having a great time, and literally made the party with his outgoing personality! I especially loved how he joined in on the dancing...he's got some moves :) He was amazing with all our guest to the point where 8 had several people ask where I found him so they can use him in the future Some guest even requested his business card personally! I would definitely recommend Special Occasion Events to anyone who is looking for a team who will go above and beyond! Our reception was perfect!
