Let me tell you, I could have not got through my wedding without Samantha! She helped me when I needed her most. She took the time to help me arrange my flowers for my centerpieces and make my Boutonnieres. Samantha made sure my reception looked beautiful when we got there. She made sure the vendors knew where to go and helped them set up. Samantha answered whatever questions I had and calmed me when I was at my worst. My day wouldn’t have ran as smoothly without her and her husband. I am forever grateful for her! ❤️

Simply Unforgettable Occasions is exactly what it advertises, unforgettable! Samantha is extremely supportive, versatile and above all efficient. She will get the job done in a happy and efficient manner and will always respond to your questions and concerns quickly. Anthony Chessar was our Officiant for my husband and I's wedding and he was phenomenal. He was very flexible and able to meet us before the ceremony a couple of times to make sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it and was able to give us great advice on making it just that much better. He was extremely professional while also being funny and upbeat to make us feel comfortable and to assure us that the ceremony would go just the way we imagined. I would definitely recommend Simply Unforgettable Occasions to my friends and family and I have recently asked them to help plan our vow renewal for next summer.

Working with SUO makes my fun! The entire staff works hard to make sure your day goes off without a single problem and their ideas make sure your dreams come true and then some! I wish every wedding we booked was with SUO because everything is taken to another level of perfection. The staff communicates well, plans well in advance, shows up early, works late, and every detail is thought through. Hanson Prodcutions fully suggests SUO to any bride looking for someone to handle all the details and make their day free of headaches!
