We hired A Paradigm Shift event for partial wedding planning services, decor/design services, and day of coordination. We booked Jocelyn about a year before our wedding and I am soooo glad we did!!! We were planning our wedding from out of state, but Jocelyn made the planning process so easy. Throughout the entire year leading up to the wedding, everyone kept saying how calm I was as the bride, and my response was always, “it’s all because of Jocelyn!!” One of the things I was most impressed with aside from her professionalism and attention to detail was how quickly she learned me as the bride. Her vendor recommendations and decor selections were always on point!!! She made it so easy for me (an extreme Type A bride) to trust her vision. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful our wedding day was and we owe so much of that to the A Paradigm Shift Event team. I highly recommend them!

Jocelyn was great! We had the pleasure of working together on 6/30/18 for a wedding ceremony and reception. The entire afternoon progressed smoothly and the entire day went off without a hitch. I highly recommend A Paradigm Shift Event planning for your next event. Cheers!

For 2 busy people, this was the Best.Decision.Everrr!
Jocelyn is THE BEST wedding coordinator everrrrr! Jocelyn is professional and knows her stuff when it comes to etiquette, traditions, and alternative options and ideas for all aspects of weddings. We experienced the Full Service Wedding Planning & Design package, and it was a lifesaver as we are both busy professionals and hardly had time to add anything more to our to-do lists!
Jocelyn was excellent at communicating with us throughout the process. We had a few in-person meetings, monthly Skype sessions, and she was available by and responsive to our many calls, texts, and emails. Jocelyn did thorough research for the venue and all vendors for our wedding, and always presented us with multiple options including the pros and cons of each choice. When asked, she would give her professional opinion, and always respected our choices.
In the beginning, we had vague ideas of what we wanted for our wedding. Jocelyn shaped our ideas into reality, making them authentic to our personalities, interests, and desires. In the end, the rehearsal, the wedding, and the reception all ran smoothly, without a hitch! (Even *if* there was a mishap, we had NO clue because Jocelyn & her team made sure everything was handled by them on the wedding day.) My husband and I (and our guests) had a BLAST! Our special day was so well-planned out that it was hassle-free and worry-free for both of us—which is how a wedding SHOULD be for the bride and groom!
It has been 6 months since the wedding and we are STILL getting compliments about how cute our customized save-the-dates, invitations, and wedding programs were; how well the wedding, cocktail hour, and reception events “flowed seamlessly”; how the theme of our wedding suited us perfectly; and how much fun everyone had! A lot of our family commented about how Jocelyn was such a “sweet young woman” who was on top of things and always cordial. The venue’s staff even made remarks about how impressed they were with the professionalism and organization of Jocelyn and her team throughout the process and especially on the wedding day. (Jocelyn’s creativity, ingenuity, experience, and keen sense of logistics provided the venue staff with ideas for future weddings and receptions at their venue.) Even our photographers and videographer commented on how easy it was to working with Jocelyn.
Oh, and we live in Maryland and the wedding was here, too. So, Jocelyn was able to give us ALL of this top-notch service from North Carolina! (She did travel to meet with us a few times in person, especially for venue visits.)
Side note: My fiancé and I had seen Jocelyn/APSE's work as a “day of” coordinator at a wedding where we were guests. Both of us agreed it was the best wedding we had ever attended—started on time; reception ran smoothly/no “boring” moments, etc. We KNEW that we wanted her to coordinate our wedding!

Jocelyn is an amazing wedding planner to say the least. She is very organized, very experienced, and has an creative eye for details. She is highly professional and is amazing to work with. We love her team and they do what they do very well. It is absolutely a pleasure and a joy to work with this awesome wedding planner. We get so excited anytime she refers us, because we know the wedding day well go smoothly for us, the couple and the other vendors. We look forward to future weddings with this company.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jocelyn Warren of A Paradigm Shift Events on 2 styled shoots at our venue. She is a master of moving parts and has an amazing capacity to bring inspiration to reality! She is creative, talented, organized and communicative. I would not hesitate for an instant to put her in charge of my wedding day!
So professional and so easy to work with!
