    Jody was amazing, if you're planning a wedding in West Michigan you definately must use her. We never thought planning our wedding could be so easy. Jody walked us through each step and took care of every detail from setting our budget, recommending great vendors, attending dress fittings, to being with us for the entire 16+ hours of the wedding day plus much much more. She even took care of booking our honeymoon for us at no additional charge! She was never more than a phone call away. A perfect example was when our rehearsal dinner venue double booked us. She was there as soon as we called to help sort out the problem. There's no way I would ever want to plan a wedding without her.

    Listen to Jody, she knows what she's doing!! Our wedding was more perfect and beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I came to Jody 5 months pregnant and living in the Detroit area. I did not have the time or know-how to plan a wedding and Jody was an angel sent to us! We wanted a very small, quaint wedding in South Haven, MI and that is exactly what we got. While our event was small, it was classy and extremely well put together. Jody worked with our tight budget and truly gave us the most for our money. The flowers, decorations, musician, and photography were stunning. The day of the wedding we didn't have to do a thing and everything was coordinated flawlessly. Jody is worth every cent and then some! We have her to thank for a lifetime of memories of our special day!

    Where can we begin? Jody took everything we wanted to do for our wedding and made it happen. For example we wanted a Caribbean style steel drum band for our beach ceremony in Michigan. Where can you find that here? Jody had it booked a few days after we asked if it was a possibility. Any request we had she had the right vendor lined up for us. No endless searching and price comparisons, no leg work, it was just done.

    It's not just finding vendors. She has vetted all of the vendors she works with and knows exactly what you are going to get. No bad surprises. Everyone she works with are true professionals and have a strong working relationship with her. Everyone is also formally contracted in writing so there are no surprises later.

    Jody is always reachable, personable and meticulous in everything she does. Every little detail is thought of. In a wedding, you want someone detail oriented working with you.

    Even with having Jody planning a wedding is still stressful as there are a lot of decisions to make. However, I couldn't imagine not having her on our side and working with us. She has so much experience to draw upon that she shares to make sure you know what you are getting yourself into before you make a decision and mentions alternatives you may not have considered so you can make the best decision. She will keep you on track, on budget and make sure that you are getting the things done when they need to be done so there is never any scramble.

    In the end, you won't be surprised by anything other than how your wedding has surpassed your expectations. She will take your vision and turn it into reality. It is clear she loves what she does and it will come through on your wedding day.

    We could not have done it without her!

It is such a pleasure to work with Jody from The Organized Partner. She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients receive the best service. I know when Jody is in charge of a wedding every detail will be covered and I never have to worry about any last minute surprises. She is very detailed and covers all aspects of a wedding. I would highly recommend her to any bride & groom getting married.
