BY FAR the best choice I made for my wedding. Bhavin was a killer MC and the dj BLEW MY MIND. We had no less than 70 people come up to us during and after the wedding and tell us it was the absolute best music they have ever experienced at a wedding. So many people asked for the playlist - I wish I could take credit for it!! Nobody was in their seat once the dancing started (and people started dancing before dinner was served - it was that good!). It was exactly what I wanted for my wedding. Highly, highly recommended.

My parents and I worked with Parag (who was the DJ for our event) and Ajay (our initial contact). Both were incredibly professional, thoughtful and accommodating. They created tracks for my family's dance performances before the event and truly listened to our song requests and vision for the event. The lighting was spectacular and all in all, a very classy event. We had an overall older crowd, but we wanted to keep an energetic, relaxed atmosphere. They helped us create just that without yelling at the crowd! We strongly recommend them!

Chirag and Bhavin were awesome! The lighting was amazing and they really kept the momentum and flow the entire night! So many of my guests have commented on how great these two were! They were extremely professional but fun, funny but not cheesy, and extremely nice! They even took the time to set all the equipment just right. Some of my engaged friends either asked them or have asked me for the information as they plan their own weddings. These guys are awesome and know exactly how to keep a party going!

I would DEFINITELY recommend Special Occasions. Worked with Parag...he just gets it. He knows how to get people on the dance floor. I've been to a lot of events where Parag is the DJ and I have been to a lot of events with random DJs. There are times when these random DJs will play songs that the crowd doesn't prefer which would then empty out the dancefloor. Not the case with Parag. I have also seen a couple of events where these random DJ may mess up (i.e., sound turns off during someones performance, mic turned off for a brief second)…not saying it happens often..but those things just don't happen with Parag.

Special Occasions was literally on the top of my priority list when we first started our Wedding Planning and was the first vendor I contacted. They took care of everything I could think of, and things I didnt think of. So happy I went with them!

Ajay and his team are the best thing that you can do for any party/wedding! We had 7 days of events, and he did our lighting and DJ'ed all of these events.EVERYTHING WAS OFF THE HOOK! Ajay went above and beyond. I remember he said to me, "its my job to make sure that you are happy with everything, so I'm happy to help with whatever." And he did exactly this! Everyone at our parties danced up a storm to his mixes. Several people have told me that our parties were awesome and that they had so much fun. My response? "It's all Ajay!" Ajay met with us whenever we needed to. He even suggested that we do a voiceover for our reception grand entrance, and helped to facilitate it. And even after the wedding, he helped me pick out the songs for our video. From the very beginning to now, Ajay has been the bomb! I am definitely going to have him do the lighting and DJ for any future parties that I have! I cant thank him enough for his hard work, dedication, MC'ing, baraat dance step teaching, etc.

Parag is a fantastic DJ and event planner! He provided music entertainment, MCing, photobooth set up, lighting, plasma TV flatscreens, AND assisted in planning my reception program. His music selection was impeccable, he knew how to engage the crowd through the mic and song selection, and his professionalism is unparalleled. Our guests enthusiastically commented multiple times during and after the event on the DJ's choice of music, and the elegant decor/lighting that Parag arranged. Parag and his team are hassle free and very reasonable in pricing relative to their competitors.

He is hands down the best DJ/event planner I have ever worked with!

Parag did an absolutely incredible job at our wedding. We have lost count of the number of people who have raved about the music that night, and we have never seen that many people consistently stay on the dance floor past 1 am! Every time people tried to leave the dance floor to talk to others at the wedding, Parag would throw on a jam that would make the whole crowd race back to the dance floor.

Aside from the young people who were in awe, all of the aunties and uncles absolutely enjoyed the music as well. Parag was especially great during the baraat when he got the whole crowd into it in the beginning before stepping back at just the right time. It doesn't matter where your wedding is or what kind of crowd you have, all you have to do is tell Parag what you're looking for and he will make it a special night!

Parag Shah was my DJ and lighting guy for my wedding and I really couldn't have asked for more. He was very professional during our planning meetings and was so helpful, especially for a last minute wedding planning bride who didn't know exactly what I wanted. For lighting ideas, he came up with really great ideas and showed me lots of previous events he's done. At the end, he captured the exact mood I was going for. For music, he had great tools we were able to utilize to pick out exactly the songs I wanted to play throughout the whole reception. He was also able to accomodate random requests I kept making just hours before our event. The mood of our reception was awesome and I keep getting compliments on how great out DJ was! Thanks Parag!
