Stephanie S., Rehearsal Dinner 05-12-2017

” I couldn’t believe the amount of detail that went into my brother’s rehearsal dinner. From the flowers and candles to the cookies and pictures, Special Occasions of Great Falls created a night for my family to remember!”

Scott Jacobs, Retirement Party 06-03-2017

“Heidi and Malou are absolutely outstanding!  I hired them to plan my Air Force Retirement party for ~100+ guests.  They were very attentive to my ideas & budget and offered excellent suggestions for decorations, food, and other logistics (including contingency plans in case of rain).  They communicated with me very well leading up to the day of the party and were accommodating of my desires along the way.  On the day of the party, I was completely blown away by the amazing decorations and food layout!  The food was fantastic and of much higher quality than standard catered fare.  They worked throughout the 4+ hours keeping the food fresh and ensuring everyone was having a good time.  The best part was they took care of all the details from initial planning to final cleanup.  Their costs were very reasonable for the amount of personal care they put into the event and I look forward to using their services again in the near future.  I can’t thank them enough for a truly memorable event!”

“What a blessing it was to work with Special Occasions of Great Falls for our wedding. Heidi and Malou worked with us every step of the way as we developed our ideas and created a vision. Our bouquets were absolutely perfect- natural and delicate, with attention to detail. Each centerpiece was unique and thoughtful, creating a vision of romance and talent, executed perfectly. We received many compliments regarding how personal our tables and reception felt. Heidi and Malou truly work with a labor of love, are extremely communicative and professional, and overall brought our wedding vision to absolute perfection.”

“Thank you so much for all of your work with Casey’s shower!! It was a fabulous event! The flowers, the food, everything was wonderful!”

Kate Juliane, 25th Wedding Anniversary 10-14-2017

“Heidi and Malou did a terrific job planning and running our 25th anniversary event. At the initial meeting they took the time to get to know our style and what we had in mind. Then they found a couple of venues for us to choose from, delivered deposit checks and took us to view the space. They gathered catering quotes and worked with us until we had a menu we were excited about at a cost in our budget. And the food was amazing! Other than the band and the food, we gave very little thought to what we wanted but these ladies covered all the bases to make it a terrific party!”

Hillary Tattersall, Pat Stevenson’s Celebration of Life 01-27-2018

“These ladies planned a Celebration of Life that was BEYOND!! They took my mom’s every passion and hobby and highlighted it during the event: they made Hot air balloons with different countries flags as centerpieces, giraffe cookies, a fabulous “green bottle” beer bar, the perfect music mix, lanterns released upon nightfall. The menu was top notch and no detail was missed. Also, I was directed the entire time and so I could enjoy my guests thoroughly. They are TOP event planners, organizers, caterers. *****”

Nancy Carter, Megan and Ian’s 1st Anniversary 10-06-2018

“Malou and Heidi took my unorthodox idea of an October party at a brewery with limited and rustic space and ran with it. They turned concrete floors and picnic tables into something very special. They added decor and accessories that complimented the space and theme…beautiful floral centerpieces with mums and pumpkins…and especially some stacked pumpkin and floral pieces, softened the look of the absolutely huge black board that covered one wall, used bamboo utensils and plates to add to the “eco” feel of the party…that pulled it all together in ways that I never would have thought of. I was busy with rehearsal dinner and wedding the 2 days prior to this event and honestly was ever so glad that I had their skills and capabilities; I never worried about it for a moment. Because they were taking care of everything, all I had to do was show up and enjoy our party. I highly recommend Malou and Heidi and would certainly hire them again.”

“Special Occasions of Great Falls knows how to throw a PARTY in every sense of the word; one that is beautiful, seamless, elegant, classy, smooth, and so, so much fun. Words cannot describe how amazing Heidi and Malou are! They designed and coordinated our entire wedding and put on no less than TWO receptions at pretty much the same time- no easy feat! The whole ceremony and receptions were flawless and Heidi and Malou were there for every second before, during, and after to help make sure everything went smoothly. The food was to die for, the flowers were gorgeous, and the decor was stunning. They totally transformed a plain church parish hall into a beautiful garden with an INCREDIBLE flower wall. All of our guests kept on talking about how beautiful the space was and how incredible the whole transformation was! Heidi and Malou also made sure to incorporate little pieces of things we the couple loved (I love monster movies, so they made a handmade wire Godzilla centerpiece that was gorgeous and is now a family prized possession!) to make it a truly special and personalized event. We had a 6 month engagement and we NEVER could have done it without Heidi and Malou’s expertise, patience, help, and guidance; they were with us every step of the way, and helped us remember all of the little things we would have forgotten otherwise! Knowing our wedding was in their very capable hands helped me breathe so much easier and just feel so much more relaxed throughout the whole process. Heidi and Malou are such kind, generous, creative visionaries, and they are a joy to work with! I will be eternally grateful, and I know my husband and I will be talking about how truly magical our wedding was for the rest of our lives- it surpassed all of our wildest expectations, and I cannot thank Special Occasions of Great Falls enough for the immensity of what they did for us. I highly recommend them for any occasion, and I hope to be able to work them again soon! 10/10!!”

“Heidi and Malou are the dream team of event planners! From our first meeting, I knew that we were in good hands as they came extremely prepared with questions, input, and suggestions that helped shape our wedding into a stellar event. They helped us stay within our budget and still managed to transform a neutral space into a very special and beautiful environment for our reception. What they were able to do with flowers was unbelievable! I felt very proud to host my guests at this event, and knew that we were giving them a party to remember. In addition to their organizational skills and attention to personal details, Heidi and Malou are kind and loving souls who are a joy to work with. I hope that we will be able to rely on their expertise again soon!”
