Helping us get the Wedding we Wanted!!!
When we began planning our wedding we knew it was going to be a big job; we knew we would need a wedding planner to advise us and keep us on track. A friend used Special Events Genie for her wedding, and we were impressed by the work they did and how smoothly everything went. When we contacted them, the proprietor, Ricki Lewis, was very pleasant on the phone; she was prompt for our initial meeting and proved to be very knowledgeable. She gave us wonderful and helpful information and we hired her soon after that.Sent on 06/09/2020
She has been an absolute treasure in helping us craft the wedding we want. This year has presented many challenges that nobody could have foreseen, with many businesses and vendors having to suspend operations because of a world wide pandemic. Ricki helped us navigate these obstacles, and has come up with extraordinary solutions to problems that don't usually occur in planning a wedding. Thank you Ricki!

Our Beautiful Wedding
My wife and I would like to thank Ricki for all of her incredible work coordinating our wedding. We hired her quite late in our planning process and she still completely orchestrated everything we desired. There were a lot of last-minute changes, especially with our guest list and she fluidly rolled with it and had everything done on time for us! Every step of the way, she was there offering ideas, suggestions and advice to help make our wedding an exceptional and unique event. Ricki truly went the extra mile seeing so that all the arrangements were completed in a timely fashion—even thinking ahead to the unexpected with a Plan B and C! Rain was predicted and yet, we were still able to have an outdoor ceremony! Well, we didn’t worry knowing that Ricki was on board, planning for every contingency. When I called her in a panic the afternoon before, she had already arranged for the canopy to cover the grounds, for our ceremony and guest seating areas. Ricki was a gem to work with, generous with her time, and had a keen understanding of our religious customs. Our beautiful wedding went off without a hitch thanks to the creativity and organizational skills of our fully prepared “Special Event Genie®,” Ricki Lewis. We couldn’t have done it without her. We would love to work with her again in the future (anniversary, baby shower and birthday parties, God willing!). – Thank you, Brian F.Sent on 06/11/2020

Our wedding was the best day of our lives
Our wedding was the best day of our lives. Everything was perfect and we have Ricki to thank. She gave us expert advice from the first moment we sat down with her. Guided us through the process of putting our wedding together and was with us every step of the way.
