We happened upon Jenny and “At Your Door Events” as the result of a recommendation by our venue. I did not anticipate that we would need a wedding coordinator as, at the time, we were confident that we would be able to plan and run the event ourselves. Our venue, however, required that we had at least a day of coordinator to assist, so we hired Jenny at their recommendation. The real interaction started about a month before our ceremony since we only purchased the day-of coordination package. Jenny was immediately on top of all the rehearsal and day-of activities and was key in helping us making some of our final decisions on timing and set up. While I appreciated the upfront help, the best part of the service was during the day of the wedding. Being a project manager for work, I tend to like to control how events flow. On the day of my wedding, that was actually the last thing I wanted to be doing. Jenny took our plans, and along with her experience, made it seem like the whole day moved like it was on a smooth set of rails. When I thought we needed something, it was already done. When I had questions, she had answers. She did the whole thing with a smile while always being a quick look or wave away. With all her help, my wife felt stress free (which means I was stress free - BIG PLUS!) and I felt like the best thing to do was to get out of the way and enjoy the experience. Added bonuses, she was an expert dress bustle troubleshooter, super professional and I never had to once talk to vendors about anything other than how great they were! Thank you so much Jenny!
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Sarah. We hired her as our day of wedding coordinator and she was so helpful and a joy to work with. When we did our venue walkthrough she had great input and ideas. From the week of to the day of the wedding she not only made our dream wedding come true, but she also made me feel relaxed and that she had everything handled. When she noticed I was getting a little stressed she was quick to calm my nerves and did so in such a sweet and genuine way. I am so grateful. Best wedding investment!!!
We worked primarily with Sara through the course of our planning. She was great and helped us think of a few things that we might not have otherwise come up with, as we were amateurs at this. Unfortunately she was sick during the day of our ceremony. Thankfully, her partner and staff members stepped in and were pretty darn excellent on short notice. There were a couple of questions about what exactly we wanted (how could there not be after all the previous emails, meetings, and calls back and forth?) but it was very obvious that Gracie had worked extremely hard to get up to speed and help the day run smoothly. They did a great job under adverse conditions and at a higher level than many organizers would do at their best.
Jenny was a LIFE SAVER. My husband and I hired her for day off wedding coordination but she was so much more. She helped us find a few of our vendors and even loaned us a beautiful tablecloth for our sweetheart table free of charge. Jenny was a total pro and so on her stuff that several members of the bridal party commented to me how impressed they were. At one point during the reception, my mother, who has been the de facto wedding coordinator at several family weddings pulled me aside and said "Thank you so much for hiring Jenny." She really made everything so easy and stress free and there were so many small details that were really thoughtful. As soon as my husband and I walked out of the ceremony, there was someone waiting for us with glasses of water and a few appetizers. During the reception, Jenny was constantly checking in on us to see if we needed anything. I can't recommend Jenny and At Your Door Events enough. They made our special day even more perfect than we thought it could be!
Jenny was unbelievably helpful and professional. She truly was able to anticipate every thing that could happen on our wedding day, and was able to make it as carefree as possible. She was hands on and wanted to make sure she was on top of everything, going above and beyond to make sure she is informed about every decision and plan going into our wedding. To call her a day-of coordinator greatly underscores how much she does leading up to the wedding, even a year out from the date. For the price, she cannot be beaten.
I cannot say enough good things about At Your Door Events. We were lucky enough to have Sara as our "day of coordinator" and she was amazing! She not only made our wedding day run absolutely perfect (seriously, it was perfect) but she was there with a smile anytime I needed her. She kept the day running smoothly and had every detail taken care of. I didn't have to worry about anything on the day of my wedding because I knew Sara was on it. My family and even vendors commented on how outstanding and professional Sara and her team were. I heartily recommend At Your Door Events to everyone. We cannot thank them enough!
Where to even begin?! We reached out to a few coordinators and services when we first started planning our wedding and as soon as we spoke to Jenny, we knew she was our girl. We described a pretty messy plan in an even messier email - we wanted to do brunch, we wanted people to play games, we wanted people to dance in the daylight, we wanted it to be super casual... but still formal enough that our families would appreciate it. We wanted people to sit on the ground... or not... or stand during the ceremony... or not? And most of all - we had a very tight budget that was not going to budge!! We made a deal with Jenny that she would be our day of coordinator, but also assist heavily in the month before, AND also give advice in the year leading up to the wedding. We would need help with some vendors, but would do some leg work ourselves. For all this, she gave us a rate that seemed almost illegal, and she worked 100x harder than we ever expected. We found our venue, but she walked through with us and asked the questions we didn't know to ask. We knew our menu, and she found a caterer and negotiated the price for us. We would handle the invitations and decorations, but she gave us tips and advice along the way. For a full year, it felt like Jenny was our full time assistant. She recommended DJs, officiants, hair and make up, photo booth and rental vendors and looked over all the contracts we drafted and told us when we were off track. The week before we all but threw our hands up when it came to vendor relations and left all the schedule setting and distribution to Jenny. We stressed over writing our vows, dealing with family in town and ordering flowers.Jenny did everything else. The day of was incredible. We made our own elaborate centerpieces and cut our own table runners. We had about 50 picture frames we wanted displayed around the venue, a chuppah to build, a slew of lawn games to set up and an unconventional ceremony layout. We thought Jenny and team would freak out, so we labeled boxes and bags to the best of our ability, put them in a rental van and crossed our fingers. My husband and I are TV producers and our biggest fear was showing up day of and having to do work or make decisions, the way we do on a TV set. When we arrived at the venue the morning of the wedding, Jenny and her team of magical elves were in full worker bee mode and within 2 hours, everything looked exactly how we had imagined it - if not better. At the end of the night we just... walked away. We totally trusted Jenny and her team to clean up and get everything back to us and they totally did. It was like a dream. We could not recommend Jenny and At Your Door Events more!!
Where do I begin? Sara and her team were absolutely amazing!! Every step of the way Sara was there for me and had an answer for everything. Although our wedding was a bit unusual in format, she went with it and made our day absolutely PERFECT in every way! This is the day a little girl dreams of her whole life and she nailed it! Everything part of our day was perfectly timed and seamless! We had not a care in the world other than dancing our hearts out and enjoying every second of our wedding! Which we did!! I am a bit of a control freak and I had not one issues with handing her the reigns completely. And she did not disappoint! Even to this day she is a kind and thoughtful person who thinks of us in the smallest of ways! I couldn’t imagine anyone else helping me plan such an amazing and important day. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sara and her excellent team at At Your Door Events! You would be lucky to book her!!
Me and my husband had the pleasure to work with Jenny Goodman. She was our wedding planner for our unforgettable wedding. I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. I trusted Jenny was going to deliver and do a great job. I had complete faith in her and the outcome of our wedding was spectacular. She recommended vendors that she had experience working with and they were all amazing. I am very detailed oriented and Jenny delivered by listening to all the details that I wanted for my wedding. As a result, our wedding was absolutely amazing and beautiful. I highly recommend Jenny if you want an amazing wedding!
Sara was my day of coordinator for my wedding on August 7, 2016 at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach. But more than that she was a friend. She listened and helped me with everything that comes with planning a wedding. My mom was super emotional the day before at the rehearsal and Sara was able to speak to her in Spanish. That was so important to us!! The day of my wedding I was able to focus on getting ready and enjoying the biggest day of my life because I knew Sara had everything handled (including all of the vendors!!). She is very thorough and the definition of a professional. I absolutely recommend Sara!!!
We hired Jenny for a day of service coordinator. She and her team were AMAZING!!! We weren't sure if this was going to be worth our money going in, but she was worth EVERY dollar and more!!! We trusted her with so many details of the wedding and her expertise showed. She was very professional and breezed through any hiccups that came her way. She made sure that I did not stress out on my beautiful day. Hire her and you will not be disappointed! Thanks a lot!!!! Marjeli Cruz Lopez
We cannot thank Sara from At Your Door Events enough for all that she did to make our wedding day so special and seamless. Not only is she highly experienced wedding professional, but also incredibly fun to work with both before and during the wedding. We would highly recommend working with her and her team!
Awesome team of coordinators made our wedding a dream!Reviewed on 10/30/2015 Michelle M
Sara rocks socks! Hiring her and her team from At Your Door Events for our month of and day of coordination was seriously one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I found Sara through a friend of mine who recommended her services (she hired Sara for her wedding in August and raved about her enthusiasm and excitement so much that we had to meet with her!). After meeting with Sara, I knew I had to hire her! She has such a positive spirit and loves what she does so much that it makes it that much easier when turning over the details to her and letting her construct your wedding vision. While I spent the year planning EVERY detail of our wedding and designing the look to match our theme, Sara and her team made all the details come to live how I envisioned so well! Seeing pictures of just my cake and cupcake table and how she designed it all... I knew that she was going to make sure everything was perfect! But that's just one aspect of it all. The turnover process was so easy when I met with her 2 months out. She was INCREDIBLY thorough which was great for me because I was incredibly thorough with my planning. The turnover meeting went so well and it truly felt like Sara was taking over my baby to care for just as I would have. That helped put me at ease which was so great because as many of you know, planning a wedding can be intense, overwhelming, A LOT of work, and many times frustrating. Knowing that she was going to care about it all the way I had and would have was just what I needed. Furthermore, she was excellent in getting our bridal party inline during the rehearsal and wedding... which can be hard to do with so many unique personalities. All in all, Sara and her team are excellent and are a dream to work with! Sara just has that personality where you instantly want to be her friend and trust her judgments and know that she is going to make sure your wedding is the dream wedding you were always hoping for. I will definitely recommend At Your Door Events' services to anyone I know getting married in the future! Thank you! :)
I don't even know where to start. I hired jenny for my 10/02/2015 wedding. My venue was more of a DIY venue which totally WASNT my thing. My husband was totally against a "wedding planner" due to our budget but after our first meeting with jenny he said "I'm so glad you hired her" since I had all of my vendors already I really needed someone to just take over the day of and make sure everything was decorated and ran smoothly.. Saying Jenny and her team blew me away is an understatement. If it wasn't for jenny my wedding wouldn't have been half of the wedding it was. Not once did she bother me about a thing (I totally forgot desert trays for ALL my desert) you would think she would have asked me for them but hope. She magically made some trays appear. I again forgot to bring my three year olds change of clothes and her team ran to target for me to grab her clothes and myself slippers during the wedding! (Huge thank you!!) Everything ran smoothly to my knowledge and I got so many compliments on how the timing went of my wedding not to mention how she turned my venue upside down and made it look like a million dollar wedding! Jenny is by far the sweetest person you'll ever meet and my husband and I are both sad the weddings over since that means we won't be dealing with her anymore. If your looking for someone to genuinely take care of you and your wedding this is the company to go with. They will make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch! I can't rave enough abut this company and jenny! If you go with at your door events you won't be disappointed!! Thank you jenny and your team from the bottom of my heart! I could not have do it without you!!!
I only needed day of coordination for my wedding, and I got more than I expected! I worked with Sara, and she is the best! We had one formal meeting before my wedding and some email exchanges. She came the day of fully prepared and knowing everything! She made my day go so smoothly. I wish I would have worked with her for the whole planning process, but at least having her the day of was well worth it! Two thumbs up!
For the “day of” our wedding coordinator connected us with Sara from At Your Door Events which was one of the best things that could have happened. Sara was extremely professional, open to our ideas, and simply helpful. She assisted us in getting our gifts to a friend’s car, organize the sparklers exit, worked with the location staff to ensure all ran smooth, and checked in with the DJ to make sure he was on top of things. Many of our guests made positive comments about Sara’s ability to keep things flowing and running smoothly. We were impressed, happy, and over all content with the way Sara assisted in coordinating our reception. Highly recommend her.
Always there when you need them! They are the most organized, prepared, and multi-talented team you can find for you wedding. Everyone at my wedding had wonderful things to say about them, they were on top of everything, very courteous to our guests, friendly, and most of all they were always there when I needed them. I am so grateful to have hired them for my wedding!
Sara was absolutely amazing. I hired her for month of wedding coordination but my husband and I both agree if we could do it again, we would hire her to be our full time planner. I seriously cannot imagine my wedding without her because she makes it so stress free and seemingly stream-less. I know there were hiccups but she handled them so well you would never know they happened. I also added on design guidance. When I hired Sara, I felt I had no wedding vision. I had a pinterest board full of contradicting ideas and I truly did not know where to go from there. As soon as she took 1 look at my board she fully understood where my mind was at. I had 2 different looks and vibes and she recommended merging them in a way I could never had thought of on my own. Her excitement and enthusiasm is contagious. You can't help but be stress-free around her and she pays attention to what you want and helps you keep your budget in check. DEFINITELY recommend AYDE, and specifically Sara, for your wedding. And I truly truly recommend hiring her as a full time planner because she will make wedding planning so fun for you!!!!
wedding planner shining starReviewed on 8/09/2015 David D
jenny was an outstanding wedding planner and coordinator. She had great ideas, worked with us and our budget, pushed back on ideas that she made even better and had a constant smile and hearty laughter all the way through the process. She was a true professional and dealt with all of the details that we would have missed. Loved her!
WonderfulReviewed on 6/08/2015 Alexandra B

THE BestReviewed on 3/23/2015
Sara and her team were amazing. Sara made our wedding day easy and made sure we enjoyed our day. The best decision we made was to hire At Your Door Events.
Jenny is greatReviewed on 11/23/2014 Natalie C
Jenny was awesome as a day of coordinator. We worked together a few weeks before the wedding and she was very calm and helpful in organizing our plans. Come the day of the wedding, I was relaxed and carefree knowing that Jenny had it all under control. I would absolutely recommend Jenny for your wedding planner needs.
AMAZING!Reviewed on 11/03/2014 Kristen B
If you are looking for the BEST of the BEST you have found them. At Your Door Events has been absolutely amazing and my only regret is that I did not hire them sooner! I fired my wedding coordinator two weeks before my wedding and my venue coordinator gave me AYDE contact information. When I called Jenny answered the phone and said she was available and we hit the ground running from that moment. Jenny is so professional and is a no nonsense kind of person when it comes to the vendors however she is so nice and friendly when talking with her bride and groom almost like she is family. I just cannot sing her praises enough!! If you need a coordinator please, please do yourself a favor and hire these girls! Jenny and Sara really do know what they are doing. Oh and on the day she comes equipped with a black suitcase emergency kit and a basket of water and snacks :) ----the little things!
Most important help in the wedding!Reviewed on 11/03/2014 Sreejith P
Hiring Jenny was the most important step we took in the wedding. There is no way we can manage everything from start to end by ourself. Also, we may not know what to manage. She is the pro. She was equipped, skilled and teamed to make this happen like it never had any pain. Just amazing!
