About Felici Events

Zohe Sophie And Shelley Eyes Up Blk And White

“When you hire an event planner you hire a designer, money manager, economic advisor, facilitator, mediator, organizer, producer and artist.  We are the director of the fairytale and handle the setting, props and casting.  We hold hands, coax vendors, organize the decorators, offer advice, negotiate contracts and keep records – track data.”

Felici Events creates impressive celebrations and gatherings by practicing superior standards and deeply instilled ethic of personal service.

Our philosophy begins with listening and providing professional event direction based upon needs in order to satisfy the specifications and vision of our clients. We create industry leading visions and deliver services including professional event management, complete event solutions, attention to the smallest details, risk management and customer service.  We give our clients a piece of mind and the ability to enjoy their own event.

When you hire Felici Events, it’s as if gravity disappears – the weight of the world lifts from your shoulders.”
