    Working with AFE was the best decision we made!

    Hiring Jen at A Fresh Event was the first and BEST decision we made when planning our wedding! I am a person who is extremely Type A, and knew if I set about putting our wedding together without an experienced planner, I would absolutely exhaust myself by researching every vendor in Chicago and second-guessing myself constantly. Thanks to Jen, we put together a team of incredible vendors for our day and were extremely secure in every decision we made.

    Jen provided immense value to us from the moment we hired her, as she first put together a budget tailored to our specific circumstances and narrowed down our venue search to options that fit our style, needs, and budget. Venue is one of the first and most impactful decisions to make about your wedding (budget and otherwise) and after we had gone through that process with Jen helping us make our choice, it was clear that bringing her onboard was the best money we were going to spend on this wedding. Through the next year and a half, she saved us so much time and stress by creating monthly tasks lists to focus our planning, narrowing our vendor selection, always being available for any questions we or our parents had throughout, and being consistently clear and timely with communication.

    Jen and Jondra ran our rehearsal and our wedding day seamlessly, including coordinating personal items (family heirlooms in the ceremony, personal décor at cocktail hour, etc.) throughout the day and getting them back to us afterwards. I was a more-nervous-than-anticipated bride, and Jen and Jondra's steady and calm presence all day helped me stay anchored and reassured me that even if I need to take a moment to step away, everything else was proceeding as planned, so I could focus on myself and my husband-to-be.

    Jen also made planning our wedding an extremely personalized experience. She got to know us and our families and gave great advice on any unanticipated roadblocks we hit along the way, going above and beyond to take action where she could to take a load off of our shoulders. She earned our trust to make day-of decisions in our best interest without consulting us, since we knew she was looking out for us at all times.

    Above all else, planning with Jen was FUN! She has such a great sense of humor and is a delight to be around. She wants her couples to be unapologetically themselves on their wedding day, and you can tell how much heart she puts into her events. Wedding planning is such a special time for you and your partner, and having Jen there to help us was one of the most magical things about it!

    Incredible

    Our team with A Fresh Event was INCREDIBLE to say the least. From the moment we first spoke with our coordinator Jen, we knew that we were in good hands. Their team is very experienced and is dedicated to making your wedding day the best it can be with lots of helpful suggestions and ideas along the way! Jen guided us through the whole process and helped plan every detail. She was so accommodating in the planning process and for me as someone who knew nothing about planning weddings, I needed a lot of guidance. Like I said, she had helpful ideas and lots of vendor recommendations and truly made the planning experience so much easier. When we had questions, Jen was always prompt to respond and help us find an answer, and so patient because we had a lot of questions! By the time wedding week arrived, Jen had helped put together a perfect schedule of events and we were all ready to go!
    When it came to wedding weekend, our team of Jen and Jondra were all over it!! They made me feel so much more relaxed and ready to soak in every moment of the wedding. If anything went not as planned, I had no idea!! They were ready for anything and made us feel so ready to just enjoy the day. On top of that, Jen and Jondra were so fun to hang out with and made our day so much more amazing! We are truly so lucky to have had them on our team. HIGHLY recommend Jen and Jondra!
