About The Party Connection
Hi, my name is David E. Stevens. We’ve been in the wedding and party business for over 28 years and have learned how to meet and exceed customer expectations. I started “Special Request” D.J. Services (a division of the Party Connection) in 1977. In 1982 “Special Request” became a full-time company specializing in weddings, banquets, school dances, proms, birthday parties and corporate events. Striving for the personal touch, then and now, we play the music you want to hear. Offering more than most companies, we have state of the art sound systems, 100% digital music with light shows, bubble machines, mirror balls and many more special effects.
As more and more people choose to book our services, we began to understand what would set us apart from other companies. Take flowers and balloons for instance, the items that create mood, atmosphere and fun at a celebration. My mother Rachelle noticed that many florists offered limited selections and ver few had decoration ideas that covered a broad range of tastes. She opened Flower City Flowers (another division of the Party Connection) in 1979. Over the years, her interest in providing decoration and floral services has expanded to include a large selection of wedding and party accessories as well.

Who has the time to shop all around town for all the services they need when one or any number of party services can be found all in one stop?
Convenience means stress relief to brides and the party organizers of all kinds. Over the years we heard so many commencts about the time & expense involved in putting together a celebration that we decided to organize and open the Party Connection in 1991, putting all our party services under one roof. We vowed, and it is still our mission today to remain a family owned & operated business that offeres every customer the personal touch every time!

PARTY CONNECTION IS THE BEST! They had creative ideas and truly listened to what we want. I am still getting compliments from the music at my wedding. Highly recommend this company.
Working with David E in the beginning was fantastic; he listened to all of our requests, answered all of our questions- we had no concerns with the direction of our night. We were in a meeting finalizing our music, the Wednesday before, when Dave told us that he hadn’t received payment. Which was due about five weeks before the wedding, we mailed it to the address he has on his invoice. We were not once told to mail to a different location, the 50 Stutson st. address does not receive mail. Dave looked in to having processed payment. He then called us after the post office close Thursday, so Friday we found out that the money orders were not sent back or held at the post office. After claiming he would bend over backwards for us, he was not willing to work with us. We finally worked it out with family very last minute, causing a lot of stress on what had been a stress free planning experience. Hoping that was the last of our problems, as we were lining up to make our entrance he came out and told us he did not have an entrance song pick by one of the bridal party couples, it was “ Here comes the boom” by Nelly, something we had already finalized with him. We moved past that too, thinking it was the last thing. During our meetings with Dave he made a few suggestions to us for cocktail/dinner music, Buble was about 90% of what we heard until the dancing began. On a positive note, the Photobooth was GREAT! The attendant made the entire booth very user friendly. Only a couple guests were not able to receive their copy of the pictures. Actually waiting in line for the photobooth myself I heard the beginning of mine and my husbands first dance song -frustrating. There were a lot of repeats through the night, requests were not played or played as we were leaving. We asked for no garter/bouquet traditions – because we don’t like them, and he did them anyway. We had a great night overall, this review was to be honest so others can be cautious when picking their vendors.
