Joyful, professional, amazing woman!

Jocelyn was the most phenomenal planner, advisor, and caretaker for our daughter's January 2023 wedding. Her recommended vendors were fabulous, and the care she took with every step of the wedding was exceptional. She brought humor and joy to the process and truly listened to what the bride and groom wanted. On the day of the wedding, she was a calm presence, and knowing that she was there to manage all of the moving pieces was a huge relief -- we could just enjoy the beautiful day she helped to create!

Professional

If I could give Jocelyn 1000 stars, I would. Her professionalism and knowledge of the industry was great. She was able to keep me calm during the planning process (oh, to be a “COVID” bride). She kept us on schedule and checked in often during planning. She is well known in the industry and only suggested the best vendors! I am appreciative of all of her hard work and knack for detail. She made sure that all of my wedding dreams came true. If you are looking for a someone professional, but personable…Jocelyn at A Paradigm Shift Event is your woman! ❤️
