Amazing Experience During Weird Times
We hired Jen in December 2019 and started full steam ahead with wedding planning for our November 2020 wedding. Obviously in March, we had to take a step and figure out what to do next. Luckily, Jen was with us every step of the way from figuring out venue limits and coordinating with our vendor team throughout the process. From her experience with weddings from July on, we were able to have an incredibly safe and fun wedding. We had our wedding on the original date in November, and it is definitely thanks to Jen. Everything ran smoothly, and I got to enjoy my wedding fully. It was the most beautiful, perfect day, and we are so grateful to have had Jen as our wedding planner. She is worth every penny and more.Sent on 11/21/2020
Jen was very responsive in answering questions and providing materials. We always knew what we needed to get done with her awesome ToDo list using one of the many online tools she provided us. Jen listened to what we wanted and worked to make it happen. Hire Jen and Altar Ego, best wedding decision we made.
Altar Ego Weddings's reply:Thank you for all your kind words, Courtney! I am so passionate about doing exactly what you described I did. No stress, support you and make sure you get to enjoy your day.

The Altar Ego team was phenomenal. I worked with Shannon from February 2019 until September 2020 (postponed our original wedding date in April 2020) and she was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and supportive throughout the entire process. She coordinated all of our vendors seamlessly. I had multiple phone calls, endless emails threads, and a zoom call to ease my mind during the planning process. I couldn't have done it without Shannon. Jen Krause filled in for Shannon on my actual wedding day and she was an absolute dream to work with. She didn't miss a beat when it came to organizing our vendors, setting up, and breaking down/collecting our items at the end of the night. She coordinated all of our vendors on the day-of and allowed us to be completely hands off and enjoy the day. I didn't have to worry about A THING on my wedding night. I would highly, highly recommend the Altar Ego team. Thank you guys again!Sent on 09/14/2020

A Stress-free wedding? Possible if you work with Altar Ego Weddings!!
Altar Ego Weddings absolutely was the key to my stress-free wedding! Jen is amazing, so kind and fun and makes the whole process easy. I truly enjoyed every second of my wedding day, and so much of it was because I didn't have to worry about anything! Jen made sure vendors were coordinated, everything was set-up perfectly, guests had all their questions answered, just flawless. Thank you Altar Ego Weddings for taking such good care of me, my family, and my friends. Can't recommend y'all enough!!Sent on 12/15/2020
You go beyond planning with this expert! Talented, creative and personable Wedding Pro!
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.
