Event Magic Testimonials

Over the years, we’ve provided services to many of the Northern California region’s top hotels, and entertainment venues, as well as cities, schools, restaurants, churches, non-profits and hundreds of private parties. We enjoy maintaining a close, continual working relationship with our clients, and depend upon their feedback in order to better our products and services. We are fortunate to share some with you here, (and of course, more can be found online via Yelp ):

Hi Henry, Though you were not at the event, we know that you worked hard to make it all happen. We want to say a huge thank you for helping us think it through and for making the space look fabulous. Both kids and adults had a lot of fun with the games, and all of the floor and velvet coverings, the tent, and the lights looked beautiful. I tried to imagine how the space would look and I could not picture anything as beautiful. It will be memorable for us and our guests for a long time!

Thanks again,

– Juliette and Josh

Thank you Eddie and Event Magic for taking care of my event needs and last-minute rental requests. I really appreciate your services and will continue to refer you to my associates.

– Eric Reynolds, Wedding DJ Pros, Oakland, Ca

You guys did everything perfectly and I have no complaints whatsoever. I’d honestly recommend your company over anyone else. Reasonable prices and professional attitudes. You gave us one less thing to worry about which is an absolute bonus on a wedding day.

– JoJo G (newlywed)

A Big Thank You To Your Crew For Making Our Grad Dance Party “Hollywood Style” a huge success! We so enjoyed working with you and appreciated your ease and flexibility

– Tom, Berkeley Middle School PTA

I had a great experience with Eddie Cantrell and Event Magic. I highly recommend, especially if your event is located in Oakland – very convenient. They also do staging, A/V and more.

– Cynthia M., Oakland

Thank You for accommodating our small event on your busiest weekend and for kindly offering us a non-profit discount.

– Sarah, Exec Director 18 Reasons

I just wanted to say Thank You so much for all the work you did for our wedding at Fay Park and the San Francisco Art Institute! Everyone is still going on & on about how incredible both venues looked that day and how smoothly the set up and break down was. Josh and I had such a memorable and stress free wedding and a large part of that is attributed to Event Magic!

Leah & Josh S, San Francisco newlyweds


– David Flail (newlywed)

You have been great to work with. Thanks again for the being so flexible with the changes.

– Rhoda C., Alameda School District

Thanks again for your great service and for always helping make Sunday Streets a success!. We have not had any trouble with the equipment you have set up.

– Susan K. ( Large Outdoor Public Event Organizer in SF)

Would I recommend Event Magic? Absolutely! They were nice, professional, willing to sacrifice and even reduced their prices to help our non-profit stay within our budget…WOW, unheard of! Henry and his staff went into over drive to make sure I had what I needed. You would have thought this was their event the way they started tossing out ideas of what I could do and use. I look forward to a long relationship with Event Magic!

C.A – Non-Profit Program Director in Oakland

They were creative and enthusiastic for our wedding plans and really made a great contribution to the event. Professional and efficient, flexible and personal, well-equipped, and very competitive in terms of the price for what we got. We shopped around and came back to Event Magic because they had what we needed at a better price than the competition. They were easy to deal with and brought a lot of experience to the project. I recommend them.

B. Dicky – San Francisco Newlywed

Thank you for making Adaptive Path’s holiday and anniversary party a colossal success! As always your staff is professional, courteous, flexible and fun.

– Robert K – Adaptive Path SF, CA

Your company has really helped make our events special!

– Michelle O. ( Alameda based charter school employee)

Thanks again for everything last weekend; the event was great!

– Liz C. (Oakland Marketing Team Leader for a national grocery chain)

Just wanted to thank you so much for having everything so perfect it just made that amazing day so much better! If we ever have any other event that requires rentals, you guys would be the first we’d contact!

– Julia and Gary, San Jose, CA newlyweds

Please thank Eddie specifically for me…he and his team worked their asses off and seemed to go beyond the call of duty. I do believe that everyone was happily electrified and lit. Word on the street is that we threw a good party! Thank you all so much…

– Erin (Economic Development Organization Director)

Event Magic is an amazing company, they have everything you need! They do everything from party rentals, staffing events, to scene creation, and exotic location weddings! I call Eddie for everything I can and highly recommend him for everyone!

– Deidre H. ( Black Rock City Ranger)

Thanks for being a part of making our event amazing. We will most definitely promote you to our readers and vendors by means of our magazine, as well as word of mouth.

– Pamela N. ( Magazine Editor)

Event Magic was on time, easy to work with, and priced right!

– Alisa S. ( outdoor wedding in San Francisco, CA)

We LOVED the pipe and drape. It looked so cool and it was everything we hoped for. It was an amazing day and exceeded all our expectations. You did a great job and we appreciated your energy and mellowness in dealing with an interesting situation.

– Jason and Juliana

Thanks for the podium you delivered for the Senator (it looked great, the perfect choice)”

– Jim M. , US Gov’t Special Events Coordinator

We were looking for hours for a place to rent flags for an event…Event Magic has everything! Thanks!

– Strategies LLC, Alameda CA

My husband and I were looking for a party, equipment rental company that could turn our backyard into a Parisian cafe for our wedding reception. We had a vision of what our party should look like but Event Magic made it a reality. Event Magic was able to maximize our space to accommodate 100 guests, and light up the darkest areas of our yard with their “bridge of white lights”. They suggested nice touches, and threw in a painted backdrop for free. Event Magic is dedicated, customer service oriented, and like family. They will not disappoint you!

– Lynna, Homeowner, Pinole CA

Event Magic staff was prompt, communicative, reliable, and professional. Their service was friendly and definitely not “pushy” to get you to rent a million things like other places. Definitely look into this place for your next important event.

– Stacy L, San Leandro CA
