About A Fresh Event

We exist to be a trusted wedding advisor, a confidant in the planning process, and to help create an event that is a true reflection of the couple we are partnering with. We are professional (but fun!), we customize each experience to you and your needs (it’s not about us), we have crisis management skills (like a boss), and we have a proven track record that has only grown over time (we got street cred).

    I was the "calmest bride ever"

    I was the kind of bride who had NO idea what she wanted her wedding to look or feel like and no real idea of what was involved. My fiancé and I work full time and I own two businesses. Planning my own wedding would have meant cutting way back on work so, after meeting with Jen, we knew the investment would be worth it. Well, here was our return on our investment:
    - Jen made our decision-making process painless. After filling out a questionnaire and getting to know us, Jen gave us 2-3 options for vendors (venue, caterers, decor, etc) so the process wouldn't be overwhelming or time-consuming.
    - She went out of her way to be with us when we really needed her and was not afraid of having crucial conversations with hotels, vendors, etc.
    - She took the burdensome chores that come with planning away from us which helped make the process leading up to the wedding FUN and stress-free.
    - Because of the above, I have very special memories of planning the fun stuff with my parents; no doubt there would have been MANY disagreements without Jen. Other than marrying my husband, this may be the biggest gift Jen could give me.
    - The days leading up to the big event, everyone around me remarked how calm I was; this was 100% because I knew Jen and her team had everything under control (and I'm a big control freak...)
    - The day of my family, fiancé and I got to have the time of our lives without having to worry about anything. And that alone is worth every single penny.

    It is clear Jen is a wedding planner because she wants to help people and that purpose makes her the best in her field. She doesn't force opinions and ideals on you, she is very direct and she will always have your back. I can't recommend her enough.

    Beyond Amazing!!

    Jen is beyond amazing, extremely professional and incredible to work with!! We are so grateful to have found her!! She is so helpful, kept us calm and provided endless guidance in the planning process and made sure our wedding day was everything we imagined and more. We even gained a new friend in the process, which we are extremely thankful for. If you want your day to be wonderful, we highly recommend her services and have already referred a few friend couples her way!! We love Jen!!

    Like planning a wedding with a long-time friend

    From the moment we started talking with Jen, we knew we were in the best of hands. After interviewing a few different wedding planners with disappointing interactions, she was a breath of fresh air. Jen was organized, professional, and extremely personable right from the start. We felt confident throughout the planning and coordinating process that she had our best interests in mind. She had great recommendations for vendors and has strong business relationships with them which are readily apparent. We truly appreciate all of her hard work in helping us achieve the wedding of our dreams. We could not have done it without her!

    Our wedding planning process was unique because we were planning a wedding remotely. Jen was always very flexible in accommodating our busy schedules and the time difference for phone calls and video conference calls. Our wedding was also a multi-cultural and multi-religion affair, and Jen’s creativity, innovation, and network proved to be indispensable.

    We can’t say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with Jen throughout the entire process. It was such a comfort knowing that Jen always had our backs and was the strongest of advocates for us at every step of the journey.

    Our confidence in Jen allowed us to simply enjoy our wedding weekend without any worries. Her emergency toolbox for anything from stains, to minor tailoring, and even headaches and stomach aches were such a relief for any small emergency that came up.

    The toughest part of the wedding weekend was parting ways with Jen who had truly become a friend and confidant throughout our journey. We highly recommend her for your wedding planning and day of coordinating needs!
