Perfect and we love her
We booked Jen in the fall for our summer wedding. We got the unlimited email plan with month of and day of service. She was worth every penny. She gave great advice, was timely in her responses, took a phone call or 2 from my Dad (who needed to talk things out), and took so many fears and concerns off my plate. The vendors and she worked together so seamlessly, it was like I had booked them all from one fairy godmother. She's a leader in her field and well respected, which was super obvious in her leadership and professionalism. My rehearsal was quick and painless, her plans were executed and thoughtful. I loved that she told everyone to go to her with question, not me. Whew! She listened to all of my needs and made them happen. She made changes along the way and was flexible with details that changed and then changed again. I felt supported and cared for. My wedding day was perfect, thanks to Jen's attention to all of the details. I would hire her again tomorrow, she is helpful, kind, efficient, calm (yessss, I needed and used her calm energy), and professional. Her assistant, Shannon, was poised and helpful as well. I didn't have to do anything hard that night, it was magical. I posted a picture of her making me laugh right before the ceremony plus my sweet husband and our drink donkeys!Sent on 06/11/2019

Jennifer with Altar Ego Weddings can make any dream come true! Always professional, above-par communication, and always a touch of fun, Altar Ego Weddings is the answer to your wedding day needs.
I had the distinct pleasure of being the DJ at an Altar Ego Wedding. Bar none, this is the most organized, talented and friendly team of planners I have worked with. Every step of the planning process was stress free. The bride who self-identified as "picky", was all smiles at the end of the night. I look forward to working with them again. Brides...you can't go wrong putting your wedding in the hands of Altar Ego.
