    So Happy I Hired Special Event Genie

    Ricki was so wonderful! She was very prompt with answering calls, texts, and emails. Anytime I needed help with any questions she was quick to assist me. She accompanied me to some of my appointments and helped me with my dress fitting problems. She also developed a timeline for our wedding and incorporated each vendor’s role within the timeline. We loved the diagrams she provided us with, which ultimately painted a picture of how everything would go. There were items I forgot to bring, but this was not a problem because Ricki happened to have everything we needed in her wedding planning tool belt!! The rental company vendor did not set-up our sweetheart backdrop like they were supposed to, so she sprung into action and arranged to have them come all the way back and set it up. I will say that I was VERY particular with the wedding decorations and this was the part I was most concerned with....Well Ricki exceeded our expectations and made everything look even BETTER than we had imagined it. Our wedding day went smoothly thanks to Ricki and her team, and this what made everything so much more enjoyable and special for us.

    Ricki is a true genie!

    Ricki and her team were an absolute dream to have! We told her what we envisioned and she went above and beyond to make that happen for the wedding of our dreams. Ricki not only put in the extra hours to help us stick with our wedding theme she was great with connections and has great taste. On top of all this, she worked so well within our budget which was highly important to us as a young couple. Highly Recommended!
