Jodi with Simple Soiree!

Jodi with Simple Soiree could not have been more perfect for our November wedding. I found Jodi online and sent her an email asking some questions. Jodi not only had very prompt responses throughout our entire working relationship, but went above and beyond her "contractual... Read More obligations." Jodi helped me figure out wedding etiquette, how to make both families happy and feel involved, as well as recommended vendors for what we had still outstanding closer to the wedding day. Jodi also helped me to keep myself organized and encouraged very clear, well planned communication. As a result, Jodi and her team at Simple Soiree executed our plan effortlessly and expertly. We truly had the smoothest wedding day with SO many moving pieces that Jodi and her team were able to keep in perfect harmony on our special day. Jodi kept calm, cool and collected, kept the ENTIRE bridal party (families included)as well as all vendors on time and added the perfect touches to our day. Jodi is not only one of the best event coordinators that I have ever worked with, but she is someone I would consider a friend after having worked with her. She is remarkable and I would recommend her for any event you are planning, especially a wedding.

Stress-relief, great advice, and smooth coordination

Reviewed on 10/10/2015

Jodi Bukowski and Simple Soiree did an absolutely fantastic job for our wedding. My wife and I got married at a venue that was a couple hours away from where I lived. We required day-of coordination, but a bit more as well in terms of logistical advice and planning. We had some... Read More communication issues with our venue, and Jodi helped us work through them and strategize around them. In moments of stress, the conversations we had with her reduced it and allowed us to come up with good contingency plans. She went above and beyond in those services, and made many trips to the venue to meet with us. When it came to day-of coordination, Jodi and her team kept everything running smoothly, made sure the ceremony was timed correctly, and coordinated the vendors so we didn't have to think about much. One hiccup occurred before right before cocktail hour: we had tasked a friend to deliver mixers but there was some confusion about it, and the cocktail hour started before they could be delivered. Jodi and her team were on it, and were just about to make a last minute run to a local store to purchase backup mixers when our friend arrived with them. The care and attention to detail, as well as the absolute focus on making sure our wedding went smoothly, was fantastic. We highly recommend Jodi and her team for your wedding.

I LOVE planning weddings. It really is that simple. I consider it a privilege to be a part of your wedding and I take the responsibility very seriously. Experiencing your joy first hand on your wedding day is the reason I do what I do.
