After losing our primary wedding planner we were fortunate to engage the services of Jennifer and her wonderful team. They are the nicest and most supportive group of people you could want during the wedding process. They saved the day and we ...
will be eternally grateful to them. They are knowledgeable, insightful, and wholeheartedly supportive when executing their services. And they did it all in excessive heat, they are amazing. 10 out of 10 we would engage their services in the future.

They practically saved my parents wedding, and made our day so much better. I was so happy to see my mom's happy face after so much stress. They were professional, but boosted our confidence the whole time. Wonderful experience.

ther vendors, day of timeline plus much much more. She listened to our desires and kept our vision all along the way. Even though we booked her months in advance she would check in with me regularly to keep her up to date with details and to see if I needed any help with anything. The week of our wedding she offered to steam my dress, pick up my flowers and coordinate with all hired vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly, plus much more. She saved me time and the stress of handling last minute tasks. She was professional, knowledgeable, punctual, really organized, kind and a lot of FUN! Her assistant Kelly was her perfect side kick, they both really worked well together and were a great team! At our reception the resort was having some technical difficulties with the AV equipment. Jennifer worked behind the scenes incognito and helped get the AV equipment back up and running. No one even noticed and the reception went on to be a hit! Jennifer made my planning process easy from start to finish. I would HIGHLY recommend Jennifer and her team as a wedding planner or day of coordinator! I couldn’t have got through the wedding planning process without her :) She is like family now!

We showed up and she kept the dining room clear of early guests so I could have some time alone with my husband to take in the moment together. It was truly the best night of our lives. And when it was over, we left - it was stress-free. Jennifer and her team broke everything down and returned the decor and other items left behind (including a forgotten piece of jewelry!). I look forward to working again with The Assistants - highly recommended!!

tl;dr: yes you absolutely need a wedding planner (it's a necessity, not a luxury), and yes you should absolutely hire Jennifer. She is OUTSTANDING. // During our wedding weekend, I was going to set up part of the reception the day before the ...
wedding. That didn't happen (an unexpected issue on our venue's end). The morning of the wedding, I woke up early to try to do some of the work, but another logistics issue on our venue's end made it so I couldn't. Here's the important point -- I WASN'T EVEN STRESSED. This was worst case scenario, but I just called Jennifer, said "hey this happened, I'm sorry this is a lot more work than I originally told you", and she said " don't worry! Go enjoy your wedding day, I've got you". Not only did she get it done, she did it so much better than I ever could have imagined. Every single detail was thought of. Fast forward to the reception, and the strap of my dress broke. Jennifer swooped in like batman responding to the bat signal, and literally said "keep enjoying your food, I'll fix this no problem". AND SHE DID. // It's not just the luxury of peace of mind, it's the necessity of dealing with all the little, moving details during the day and the problems that inevitably will arise. Jennifer is attentive to details, thoughtful in her approach, compassionate during stressful times, and proactive in dealing with problems before they even come up. She's accessible, easy to get ahold of, a strong communicator, incredibly organized, and truly the one vendor in my wedding that I would pick over and over and over again without hesitation.

She also picked up our flowers, worked with guests to get their favors, etc. Where Jennifer really stood out for us was her management through a freak storm. While totally unexpected, we were met with dust, wind and rain within an hour of our outdoor ceremony and reception. Jennifer was a much appreciated advocate for us, and while our original locations couldn't be used, she helped ensure as much of our original vision as possible was held onto, and she really directed and drove traffic. There was little we had to do - she took care of so much during what was a very fast and crazy transition time thanks to a late season monsoon. Thank you Jennifer!
