Jennifer is great!!! I dont know how much more I can say to describe her... She is quick to reply to an email and if she doesnt have an answer right away she will let you know... She has tons of ideas and she even thinks of the stuff you will probably forget... That was my biggest fear and she took care of it for me... She is awesome and fun and she will definitely keep everything in check on your wedding day...Sent on 03/12/2010

Jennifer, A Friend of the Bride, was one of the best decisions my daughter made in planning for her wedding. Jennifer was calm in the face of chaos, pleasant, organized, efficient, pleasant, easy to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married or planning any sort of event. We started out on strictly a professional, business level, but I would consider her a friend after the wedding!Sent on 06/23/2009
Over the years , we have had several occasions where we find ourselves partnering with Jennifer . Her service is invaluable and we are grateful that she is a part of the wedding day. She meets with the bride ahead of time and by the time the wedding day rolls around, she knows exactly what decisions need to be made and how to handle all the behind the scenes questions that come up the day of the wedding. A good coordinator keeps the day running smoothly, the stress away from the bride, and is in charge of every detail. Jennifer is all of those things and will make your wedding day yours to enjoy!
I've had the honor to work with Jennifer on many weddings and she truly is a joy to work with. Her personality is calming yet very organized and efficient. She keeps the day moving along so you don't have to worry about anything but having fun. Every wedding I have photographed with her has been absolutely beautiful.
Jennifer is such a pleasure to work with. Her brides absolutely adore her because she is such a great person and does a wonderful job for them. She's definitely a seasoned and passionate professional.
