Social media (esp those pinterest charts) have you believing planning a wedding just a longer checklist of plausibly simple tasks. However, given both our busy work schedules, we decided to spring for a planner to streamline the process. This w...

With Jenny's help we were nearly done with planning our September 2020 wedding before the pandemic hit. Jenny made each step fun and efficient. I didn't have to research 40 photographers, email them to find out who was available, and then figure out if they were within our budget. Jenny did all that. Then, emailed us 3 excellent photographers within our budget and available on our date. She did the same for every component of our wedding. She also created a vision design board, to make sure all vendors were on the same page to execute our vision. She made sure we had the best value for every detail large or small -- whether it was the napkins, dress alterations, florist, transportation, makeup, or venue. All our vendors were excellent, fun, prompt, and very professional.
Without Jenny's wisdom, foresight, and organizational skills on our side -- we would not have been able to keep many of our vendors and get married in May 2021, despite our venue dropping us 2 months before the actual event as well as a host of other small disasters -- par for the course for many large events.
Having an excellent wedding planner was the single best decision we made for our wedding. I am a Costco-shopper, and I love a good sale. But, what you don't know is a good wedding planner knows ALL the sales and inside tricks. They have every detail covered, and are 2 steps ahead. They are worth every penny.
Anyone that knows me knows I have extremely high standards (Harvard education and all). Jenny exceeded all of them. Our wedding was perfect, and very much stress free. I even took a stressful board exam 2 weeks before the date!
Our wedding simply would not have been possible without Jenny. 5 is not enough. She deserves all the stars.
