Wine and Whiskey

This event was a creation of A Special Occasion to provide something different that included a variety of whiskey and wine brands and cigars for all. This was something that hadn't been done before and we were happy to bring it. The below highlight video provides just a sample of the events that we can produce

Dr. Ivan Hernandez in Kansas City

We were chosen to help plan a Kansas City book tour stop with celebrity physical therapist and author Dr. Ivan Hernandez. Based out of Yonkers, New York Dr. Ivan authored his first book "Courage to Continue" to share the story of how a physically fit man can have a heart attack with 6% body fat at 38 years of age. This book talks about the causes and the ways we overcame fighting for his life. Release in April, the book is now one of the top 10 best selling books on and is also being sold at Barnes and Noble. He has also appeared on a variety of television shows including our local programs Better Kansas City and Kansas City Live. He also has had multi segments on Roland Martin's show NewsOne Now.


In addition to releasing a book, Dr. Ivan also set out on a multi-city boot camp and book tour. We were selected by his manager, Dr. Syleecia Thompson, to plan his stop here in Kansas City. On July 8, we had a wonderful turnout and a great time with Dr. Ivan. We did a boot camp and he also gave a quick workshop on how to life a healthier lifestyle. We were so honored to be chosen for this event and to represent A Special Occasion to the fullest.

Dionne + James

This wedding was particularly special for A Special Occasion. Owner Danielle Henderson has known the Bride, Dionne, since they were very young children. It was an honor to be asked to be the planning company for her wedding to her beloved husband, James. This wedding was fun to plan. This couple was a joy to work with and the results were amazing. It was a nice simple ceremoney and reception and you could tell the couple was loved by so many. The color palette was a rich shade of purple and silver. The mother of the bride was instrumental in the decor and we provided all of the coordination. This was one of our favorites.

The Hartley Family

We were asked by Kevin and Terri to help them plan an engagement celebration for their son, Eric, and his lovely bride to be Natalia. They wanted it to be in their backyard and have family and friends come. We had a wonderful color palette to work with and the backyard was a great canvas. We were able to bring in some colorful design elements and we believe they had a wonderful time. This family was an absolute joy to work with and we look forward to possibly working with them in the future.

Allegro Ballroom

We were contacted by a venue here in the city. They were going to be doing a styled photo shoot. Of course we love all things that deal with planning so we were excited to jump in. They wanted the shoot to focus on their space as just not a dance studio, but also as a great wedding venue. We are so happy with how it all turned out and we are so thankful and humbled that the owner of Allegro Ballroom was happy with what we did.

LaVetta + Randy

We had the opportunity to plan a lovely vow renewal for this couple to celebrate 5 years of marriage. They were a joy to work with and we are so happy they chose us for their day.
