Planning my wedding with Gracious Events Management felt like planning my wedding with close friends. From my first call with Jen Hansen, I knew we were a great match. They were there every step of the way to help me navigate the process, negotiate with vendors and to bring the... Read More vision of our wedding to life. On our wedding day they made sure that everything was going smoothly, so I was able to enjoy the moment and not worry about a thing. I highly recommend GEM!

I wasn't going to get a wedding planner; however my florist had recommended it since I had so many details and moving parts. I am so happy I hired Tania and Jen. They were excellent and even helped when I had my "bride moment." They were well worth the money.

And she’s the consummate professional. Before founding Gracious Events, Jennifer held top event planning positions at the Boston Harbor Hotel and private equity firm Thomas H. Lee Partners. Though based near Boston, her events have taken her as far afield as Japan.
