Who Are These Kansas City, Missouri Planners?

A Special Occasion is the brainchild of talented and educated women living in Kansas City, Missouri. Each of us had been planning events separately developing almost 30 years of experience collectively. We each had a dream of being a planner with such style and professionalism that we would be able to make anyone’s vision become a reality right before their eyes. Neither of us knew it at the time but when the dream was born we each would be just what the other needed. 
We are enthusiastic and creative businesswomen whose goal is to provide a unique and professional style of event planning and coordination. We are a three-time award winning planning firm by enhancing the positive image of small business through service to our customers and our community. We feel life moments should be celebrated and our priority is to allow clients to feel comfortable and confident that everything seen in their vision is executed with finesse, and expertise. The exciting thing about being Kansas City, Missouri planners is we have been able to connect with wonderful business owners who will aid in making your event memorable.

Danielle Henderson


Event Consultant

My experience goes back over 15 years in planning events. It started in helping to plan the Christmas party for one of my employers. After planning that event, I planned a bone marrow drive in New Orleans, LA for a non-profit organization I was a part of. I then ventured into weddings by planning and coordinating the weddings of a co-worker and for a long time friend. After those events, I realized what my true passion was to own my own Event Planning company. Watching an event come together is the motivation for everything I do. I love creating the best lifetime memories.




Juanita Michelle


Event Consultant

I have been planning/coordinating events since high school. What started as a passion, opened up the doors for a business venture in Event Planning/Coordination. I enjoy working with and for people, which has been over 15 years of my experience. Within those years I have planned such events as Women Retreats, Leadership Workshops, Women’s Breakfasts and Family Reunions. I want to help make your vision all that you want it to be. Together, we can create lifetime memories.






No matter which one of us you decide to reach out to, you will have these two women by your side in order to make your event the best it could possibly be. We are a team that is here to serve you and help meet all of your needs. We want to turn all of your dreams into reality.
