Meeting with John was a great experience!! Looking forward to our wedding and his services
Nicole, we were (are) very happy to work with you. It's was a very memorable wedding and from what we've seen so far and the experience we had during the big day -- we are very satisfied. Not only did you succeed in making our interactions organic and stress-free but you captured the moments which we specified and valued most. We've gotten a lot of complements for the professional quality of the photo (previews) and I look forward to seeing what else you have prepared for us. Cheers and good luck to you!
Erika helped make our wedding beautiful, and special. She made us feel relaxed about the planning process. Our wedding was so beautiful and meaningful. Thank you!
Mark officiated our wedding in Naperville, IL in July 2016. He offers a great presentation with flexibility to cater to couple's specific needs- all at a very reasonable rate. His prepared introductions and readings were lovely and we were easily able to edit parts to add a more personal touch to the officiant speech. He did a great job helping us coordinate the procession at both the rehearsal and actual ceremony. We highly recommend Mark to officiate your wedding! - Matt and Courtney
Carl was amazing to work with start to finish! He was flexible and knowledgeable. When the wedding came he continued to be professional and fun! Together with our friends and family, we danced the night away! We left the open dancing music to him and he delivered. Many of my friends told me that this was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. I know Carl made it special and fun! Thank you for such a wonderful experience and a great wedding, Carl. I would definitely recommend Carl for any event.
Emil was amazing. I hadn't met him or even talked to him on the phone before my wedding so I was a bit nervous about it, but immediately I knew it was going to be a good day. Emil was so easy to talk to, had great ideas for photos and was SO great at keeping us all on schedule. The entire day ran exactly on time which is unheard of for weddings... but it was all thanks to Emil. Everyone felt comfortable around him, and he got all of the pictures I had asked for and then a lot more :) During the reception he seemed to be everywhere getting so many pictures of guests (which I really wanted) and of us. He paid so much attention to the detail in every picture making sure to remove little things I would never have noticed but would have been ugly in the picture. I haven't gotten my pictures back because I just got married a few days ago, so I can't speak to those, but I'm 100% confident they will be amazing. Thank you so much for everything Emil! Highly recommend !
The DJ did a fantastic job! I learned a lot on the fly. I helped coordinate my god daughter's wedding and reception. On our end we were very last minute. Didn't not talk to the DJ until two days before the wedding. Communicated all the way up to that day. Professional and courteous. He made it happen for the bride and groom. Pleasure working with him. He walked me through my first event.
Rick and his team were fantastic. My Wife Nicole and I had our wedding at the Crystal Ball Room in Evanston. When we saw Rick and his team you could tell how professional they were. They asked for a list of songs that we wanted to hear, and went out of there way to make sure our guests enjoyed themselves. The dance floor was never empty! My wife and I would recommend them for anyone getting married. A lot of vendors will stress you out through the wedding process, you can rest assured Rick & Special Occasion Events Inc will not. One of the things that makes your wedding most enjoyable is not having to think. Rick always knew when to grab me, and said "alright we gotta make sure we do the intros, thank your guests, etc". If you pick Special Occasion Events Inc, it will take your wedding to the next level. Matthew & Nicole Special Occasion Events client September 9th 2017.
Isaiah on short notice had to edit an existing video produced elsewhere and did an incredible job. The changes were invisible and flawless.
Matt was great to work with! We connected early and he was sincerely interested in understanding what would make the wedding fun for everyone, with priority going to where it should-the bride and groom. Matt's flexibility was of great help as we had a number of traditional indian ceremonies to perform with specific music for each, and when it came to getting the crowd dancing, he did that from beginning until the end! Everyone had a great time and many asked me for his name afterwards. Thanks again gor making the special day such a memorable one!
Patricia and her team did hair and makeup for all of my bridesmaids and flower girl and my hair. I typically wear a lot of makeup so I was too nervous to have someone else do my make-up, but I was really happy with how my hair turned out! She even put my clip-in extensions in for me. My mom and a few bridesmaids didn't like their hair and ended up re-doing it themselves, but I guess that's how it goes - some people are just more picky. Also, one of my bridesmaids had a little reaction to the false eyelash glue that was used but she just has sensitive eyes and skin so we took them off and used a different glue. I would just make sure to tell your makeup artist if you have any sensitivities. Overall, I thought it was a great experience. All of my bridesmaids felt so pampered having their hair and makeup done and I think it reduced everyone's stress levels the day of the wedding. We were able to just sit back and relax in the hotel room while Patricia and her team worked their magic on us. They were there all morning from 9am until around 1 working hard and I really appreciated it. Also, Patricia is just one of those people that's nice to be around. It felt like she and her assistants were part of the family hanging out with us! Thanks again, Patricia!

Milan and his assistant Nikola took our pre-wedding photos as well as our wedding photos in October 2014 in MI. Here are some exceptionally great things about Milan: -Truly gifted photographer with a great eye for details, composition and lighting! - Very easy to deal with and flexible in coming up with special arrangements. - Able to take our ideas and develop them further creatively (feel free to share your thoughts and expectations with Milan). - I really liked his prior work - it was very hard for me to find that otherwise in our price range. We got more for our money than what's available through common channels. - Was available for the whole wedding day, as opposed to the normally limited hours. To this day we still get compliments on our wedding photos and we have Milan and Nikola to thank for that! We highly recommend Milan to anyone looking for unique, spectacular and creative photos!
Lisa was my MUA for my wedding and made me feel absolutely beautiful. I had a large wedding party and she got us all done in a timely manner with out rushing. She was so fun, we all loved her! She is doing makeup for one of my bridesmaids upcoming wedding and I can't wait to get dolled up again! Thank you Lisa!!
Tony was awesome to work with!!! I can't wait to see our wedding photos!!!
Everything from the lighting to the music was phenomenal!! We had guests of our wedding asking where we found our DJ. The music was constant and he never missed a beat! We have a lot of shy friends and family but the music provided made it impossible not to go out on the dance floor and have a great time! They were the number one reason our guests had an amazing time!! Almost two weeks later and I'm still receiving compliments on our DJ!
Wydell was very personable and gave a lot of attention to all details she put a lot of thought behind what we wanted in our vision of a small but, meaningful ceremony, she gave us a very warm and genuine inpression, I cant wait for the Big Day, I know she will make it special for us! I will come back here-to post another review to let every one know how it all went, coming up in October of 2017
I love what she will do for my wedding, It's classic and simple. I had it in until I went to bed. Can't wait to wear it for my wedding gown day.
Bill was awesome! Very customer oriented experience and the night was a blast, I will highly recommend for anyone's wedding!
The flowers for my wedding were BEAUTIFUL! Kate made custom centerpiece stands that turned out amazing. She was very flexible and made everything look incredible. My bouquet was gorgeous! I received tons of compliments. THANK YOU!!
Ryan was the photographer for my wedding, and I could not be happier with the photos. Him and his partner were professional, responsive, organized and incredibly easy to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
