I found a wedding that Jen did online and said, WOW, I want her to plan my wedding. Then, I met Jen and we immediately clicked. She is calm, kind, and an incredible guide through the planning process. She listened and understood the vision we w...
ere hoping for and nailed the execution. Her grace allowed us to remain calm and truly enjoy the planning process. I cannot imagine planning our wedding without Jen and thank her endlessly for her recommendations, guidance, and support to bring our vision to life, making our wedding the one of our dreams. It was also so fun to get to know Jen over the year and a half that we worked with her, through new puppies and babies, she brought so much joy to our wedding process and I know we will stay in touch with her for life!

I have spent the past almost two months trying to come up with the perfect way to describe my experience with Jen, but honestly, there are not enough words. When I met with Jen almost two years before my wedding date, I spoke with her on the ph...
one from 800 miles away (I live in Chicago, IL). I'm originally from the Beaufort area, but had not lived there for several years. From the beginning, Jen was there every step of the way. Planning a wedding from 800 miles away and then during a pandemic was a bit mind-boggling, but Jen was an absolute angel and made the whole experience seamless. Her communication, design, resources, organizational, and problem solving skills are unmatched. We met via Zoom often, and she always answered all of my questions.
She also created the wedding of my dreams plus more. She took everything that was inside my head and put it on paper while staying within the realm of my budget. I seriously could not have planned my wedding without her.
Outside all of those things, Jen is one of the kindest, beautiful souls you will ever meet. All of my vendors, guests, and family members adored her. To this day, I still hear how wonderful Jen was at the wedding. If I could work with Jen again, I would--100%. Thank you, Jen, for being a part of my life and creating the most beautiful wedding for me.

I would like to start out by saying that finding a great wedding planner is so very important when planning a destination wedding! When my husband and I decided to get married in Hilton Head I reached out to Jen and it was one of the best decis...
ions I made in the wedding planning process. It is so comforting knowing that you have someone working for you that knows the area and the local vendors so well. I initially knew I loved Jens taste by her portfolio so throughout the process I felt very at ease with her recommendations. She helped me to book some of the most amazing vendors!!!! If you are starting to plan a wedding in the area be sure to contact Jen first, she can help you with so many little details right away that will later become so important! For instance, deciding on your venue is crucial and Jen has incredible knowledge about the area to help you find the venue that will reflect your style/vision. From there she does a wonderful job with guiding you through the steps you need to take and helping you to do things in the proper timeframe (timeframe is so very important - vendors get booked, etc). I also want to mention how amazing our day of experience was. I am extremely detail oriented and Jen executed and oversaw every little detail perfectly!!! I can't describe how happy I was seeing all the aspects we had worked so hard on during the planning process come to life. Having her and her team there on our wedding day allowed me to relax. I felt as though she would make sure everything came together the way I had envisioned - and I was right! I am so THANKFUL we reached out to Jen all those months ago and will forever CHERISH our wedding planning process/wedding day experience!!! Know that if you decide to use Embellished Events you will be in the very best of hands.

Where do I begin? My finace and I got engaged last summer and immediately knew we wanted to get married on HHI. However, we had recently moved to the PNW and knew that there was no way we would be able to plan a wedding there from across the co...
untry by ourselves. We contacted Jen based on her photos and reviews and could immediately tell she was an incredibly creative and experienced professional who could bring our wedding to life. Jen kept us up-to-date with our responsibilities for the entire year of our engagement, right up to the week of the wedding. We were involved in the planning and the wedding truly felt like ours; however, she took care of everything, from communicating with vendors to coordinating the day-of schedule. In the end, our wedding was even more wonderful than I could have ever pictured because of her vision and taste - even with a few hiccups (like swarms of yellow jackets on the intended ceremony site!). We had many guests tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to, noting that every little detail had been covered. I totally trusted her and did not have to worry about a single thing except enjoying the day. I highly recommend Jen and Embellished Events!

For people looking for a little more detail here goes. My now husband and I live in New York City but both have an affinity for the Lowcountry. Given that dynamic we knew that we needed someone on the ground who knew the vendors and could help our vision come to life with lots of emails and phone calls. As silly as it sounds I initially approached Jen because I loved her website! I knew I wanted someone professional with good taste and my first reaction after seeing how she markets herself is that this is someone that like me, takes pride in the details. During our first phone conversation I knew that Jen was exactly who I wanted to go through this process with. She instantly made me feel more at ease and the way she approached discussing different wedding ideas really showcased what an expert she is – I trusted her to run with a lot of things wedding related and am so glad that I did.
On the day of our wedding Jen and her team executed all aspects of the day perfectly. I didn’t have to worry about anything and for someone that is super type A it was a huge thing for me to totally let go. For example, we had an outdoor ceremony and right before I was supposed to walk down the aisle the sky opened up and it started pouring. Jen told everyone to quickly come inside and we would resume the ceremony following the rain delay. Sitting in the bathroom with my bridesmaids drinking champagne could have been a stressful, freak out moment but of course Jen quickly came to chat with me and let me know the storm would quickly pass by and we’d start where we stopped. Given the trust I put in Jen through this process and the quality with which she had executed everything this far I knew that she would handle this and I didn’t have to worry at all. 20 minutes and a couple champagnes later the skies cleared and we continued as planned! The entire night was perfect and the only thing I wished is that Jen could have been a guest as throughout this process she also became a friend.
The entire process was thoroughly enjoyable and I am so sad that I don’t get to email her daily! If anyone is looking for a wedding plan I strongly recommend that you hire Jen and her team!

Jen Leiti and the Embellished Events crew were top-notch! We have a biased opinion given she created the perfect wedding for us, but our friends and family's comments attest to her skills! Many have asked "how did you plan such a perfect weddin...
g?!," "This is the best wedding we have ever attended," (which means a lot when you are the last of your friends to marry and they are in their late 30's/early 40's) "Seriously stunning... AND so much fun!," "When our daughter gets engaged can we call you to help plan it?!"...the response to all of these comments was "Jen Leiti." We just got married on October 17, 2015 and I'm already getting requests for Jen's information from family and friends. From day one of working with Jen (14 months before our wedding) we were attracted by her personality (she is soooo easy to talk to, get along with, be friends with!, and work with) which was so important given our relationship for most of the year was going to be "long distance". We needed to know that we could easily communicate with her. Her flexibility and ability to work around our busy work schedules/lives during the entire planning process was amazing. Her style sense, professional advice, sincerity, and passion is unable to be matched! The best part... she is considerate of your wishes, what you and your significant other want, and what your budget needs are. She is truly working with you to design what YOU want for YOUR big day! Nobody could have done a better job that Jen Leiti and Embellished Events. The only request from the bride, groom and literally all of the guests... CAN WE DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!!!??? The best part of this request is that we would do it over again EXACTLY the way we did it the first time around :) To all of those future brides out there... take it from an honest bride and groom who have experienced it... Jen Leiti and Embellished Events made our day even better than we had ever dreamed.

ellished Events team helped to make our day even better than we could of ever dreamed about. Jen is a truly talented and gifted wedding planner who not only provides you with an immaculate list of potential vendors to choose from in the area but also provides insight for difficult decisions throughout the planning process.
As the planning process began, Jen coordinated with the vendors to set up meetings, and was always quick to respond whether by email or phone call. She prepared us to make decisions appropriate to our timeline to ensure we were able to get everything we wanted. As potentially stressful situations arose- the possibility of rain and having to change a couple of rental items a week before the wedding- Jen reassured me of the decisions I had made and made me feel at ease for the up and coming big day!
As for the wedding weekend, Friday night Jen was present for the rehearsal and made everything and everyone flow smoothly! We were able to run through everything for the next day twice which helped to put my mind at ease. The next day, Jen and the EE team turned a grassy lawn into an absolute fairytale! Our entire wedding and reception was outdoors which required a lot of setup!! Everything and I mean everything down to the smallest detail was exactly how I had envisioned it in my head!! It was absolutely beautiful!!! The wedding and reception went flawlessly. And I truly believe that is in large part to Jen Leiti and my amazing team of vendors! I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience I had planning my wedding with Jen and if you are considering or looking for a wedding planner, I would look no further! She is an amazing wedding planner and person! To all the other brides in the planning stages I hope this review helps and wish you all the best in the future!

We began working with Jen at Embellished Events about a year and half before our wedding date. As an out of town bride and groom, we knew we needed some help planning our South Carolina wedding.
Jennifer came through and exceeded our expect...
ations. She has a true eye for detail and made our wedding unique, as we wanted it.
Our wedding was fully outside under a tent, which required a lot of rental items and design of the space. Jen transformed a plot of land into a glamorous and chic space. She took our vision and turned it into the wedding of our dreams.
All details were handled, from the lighting in nearby trees, to our hand written seating chart on mirrors, to our lounge area outside of the tent. Jen coordinated with all vendors, had meetings with them on-site while we were out of town, and followed up with each vendor to confirm all details were in place. Jen scheduled meetings for us while we were in-town, and spent as much time as needed with us to finalize details.
Jen truly made our planning process smooth and this came through in the end result. I highly recommend Jen and her team!

Jen truly has a knack for details. She has an eye for fabric selection and creative ideas to make your wedding truly unique. Jen sewed our head table runner, wedding party napkins, pillows for the outdoor sofas and sash ties for the tent poles. Our guests were impressed with all of the small details.
The day of the wedding, Jen and her team made every moment flawless for my husband and I. We were able to throughly enjoy ourselves without having to worry about a thing! Her assistants were able to run last minute errands for me, always had a fresh drink ready for us, and were always anticipating our next move (holding doors, folding napkins, etc.).
Embellished Events is a boutique wedding planning service who truly caters to your every need and makes you feel as though yours is the only wedding they're planning! I will be recommending them to all my friends who decide to marry in the Low Country. Jen and I have remained close friends and I look forward to working with her again for other event planning needs in the near future!!

d signed our contract, she had suggested a venue to check out we hadn't considered and we ended up falling in love) from the vendors, the details, to the execution of the best night of our lives. Jen took our initial vision and made sure that every last detail went towards bringing that vision to life. Every one of her recommended vendors worked out perfectly - their customer service was superb and they all worked together with Jen to provide us a seemingly perfect ceremony and reception. There could have been problems, but not any one of the guests, myself included, ever heard about or saw one. Jen responded to every one of my emails (and there were quite a few) quickly and professionally and she's just about the sweetest and most understanding person I've ever met. I can also say that by the end of the wedding planning process, you too will have a newfound friend in Jen. Jen was also very understanding of not only respecting our vision, but also respecting our budget. She really gave us the freedom to develop our own vision of the wedding we wanted and would suggest ideas or touches that we may not have thought of, but they only added to the overall experience of our big day. Jen knows what will work and what will get you your dream wedding, but I felt the entire time that we were planning our big day with a close friend instead of a paid consultant. The best part about Embellished Events is that their fantastic team, with their very thorough planning, allowed my husband and I (and our families) to have the chance to really relax and enjoy the special moments. Our guests are still raving about the stunning and fun reception that we would not have been able to create or have without Embellished Events.
