    Linda & Ricky

    We hired Special Event Genie only five weeks before our wedding because we needed to feel organized about how we were planning all the finishing touches and details.
    We were most impressed that she was so easy to work with, flexible with her time and came to our home twice to give ideas as well as assist with assembly of the centerpieces and favors.
    Ricki immediately understood our vision for the look and feel we wanted to create, showcasing our love of all things Gold!
    She even drew up full color, to scale floor plans for all scenes of our wedding using her own app!
    Ricki understood our budget and came up with creative ways to do things that only looked expensive.
    We were also impressed with the detailed and most organized timeline and other documents she created for us.
    And we felt very comfortable working with her because she totally understood our culture and traditions.
    Her team was totally hands on making sure the evening went smoothly.
    We were so glad to have Special Event Genie running the show, we could not have done it without her!
    Thank you Ricki! - Linda & Ricky

    A Lovely and memorable experience

    We hired Ricki Lewis of Special Event Genie for our wedding.
    We really did not want to wait the usual 9 to 12 months of planning.
    Once we were granted permission to have our wedding USC, we called Ricki.
    This was only six weeks before our wedding date!
    Ricki totally shared our vision of the look and feel of our wedding decor.
    She designed our invitations and RSVP management!
    She even went out of her way to walk the entire University to make sure all departments had the required permits approved and all money was paid.
    Ricki and her team stayed the entire day, to make sure everything went smoothly from start to finish.
    We cannot say enough about her attention to detail and to our individual needs.
    Her resources for the dress, the music and the lighting were wonderful.
    She has a can-do attitude and never gives up.
    We could not have done this without her guidance and assistance every step of the way.
    We are so appreciative! Thank you Ricki!
