“Jen was an incredible asset for our wedding planning. She was responsive, organized, and always had our best interests at heart, which is hard to come by in the wedding business. She genuinely cared about us making good decisions, saving money, and having fun along the way. By the time the big day arrived we had complete faith that it would go off without a hitch because of her amazing coordination skills, and it did! To add to it all, we had a very non-traditional wedding for wine country – essentially a modern Jewish orthodox wedding with multiple ceremonies and other traditions (like t’naim, bedeken/tisch, birkat hamazon). Even though these traditions were new to Jen, she fully embraced them, learned about them, and helped us execute them flawlessly. Finally, Jen is incredibly crafty, making signs and other decor by hand, and she made great use of the space we were working with, even given our large wedding size (170). We would recommend her to anyone 100 times over who wants a wine country planner who knows what she is doing, is down to earth, and will execute beautifully. Thank you Jen!”

Jen was my wedding planning guardian angel!
From the moment I met her I knew that she was perfect for our event. She is incredibly calm and thoughtful. Actually, she thinks of pretty much everything.
Whenever I had some "unsolvable" problem, she would solve it in a second. Her knowledge seemed endless. She is super organized and always answered my emails or calls promptly.
On the day of Jen did her part flawlessly. I was floored because she even did more than asked. Every detail was thought of. I'm sure once I get my pictures I will see even more of the work she did. My favorite thing she did was not even her job. At 10 am on the wedding day I hurriedly asked her to write in the table arrangements on some windows I had bought. When I saw the windows later she had drawn these beautiful flowers alongside the names that added such a special touch. This is just one of many examples that shows how detail oriented she is.
Nothing went wrong on that beautiful day and she was calm, cool, and sweet the entire time. I loved interacting with her because she had everything so together.
Many of my guests came up to me saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I owe much of its success to Jen.

“My husband and I can’t say enough good things about Jen! From the get-go we loved her relaxed attitude, organization and responsiveness. She sat down with us a year before our wedding and went through our vision and gave us great recommendations on where to start and who to contact. Jen was always available to bounce ideas off and was a problem solver. It was helpful that she was a part of the catering industry at one point because when we chose Elaine Bell as our caterer she was able to contact our point person and advocate for our needs. She was conscious of how to save us money if possible and would keep our rental list up to date and take items off whenever possible. She allowed both of our families and us to have a relaxing, no-stress wedding day because she set up all of our decorations and items. She also kept a detailed event order on how the wedding day would flow and was flexible with any changes that we wanted. When we had concerns about the trees at the venue blocking our view at dinner, she quickly addressed this with the events manager at the facility and had them cut back. She was behind the scenes throughout the wedding day and assisted with smooth transitions. Jen also made herself available and was able to answer all of our questions; she kept us on track throughout the process. She even cut olive sprigs off her own olive tree, to place as an accent in our napkins. She really goes above and beyond. We can’t stress enough how WONDERFUL she is, the best money we spent hands-down!!! If you want your wedding day to be perfect, hire Jen!!”
