Hiring Ari was by far the BEST decision we made in an entire year of wedding planning! My husband and I are a weird mix of both incredibly Type A people and big partiers and we wanted a large, elaborate, beautiful, and fun wedding on a family property. Planning a wedding with a standard venue is hard enough, but to create our own venue we definitely needed the best wedding planner out there: Enter Ari! I could go on and on about Ari but I’ll list the things I looked for in reviews while wedding planning:Sent on 05/09/2018
1. Responsiveness! Ari responds so quickly (Sometimes within seconds!) to every call, text, e-mail, etc. at pretty much every hour of the day! She makes you feel like you are her top priority at all times, even though she is incredibly busy.
2. Budget! Ari saved me more money from the discounts her preferred vendors gave me than she actually even charged. Literally, my wedding was cheaper because I hired her than if I’d had no wedding planner! She’s also so savvy at knowing where to put money for maximum effect and where you can cut costs with no impact.
3. Fun! This should really be at the top of the list. Wedding planning is a whirlwind and who wants to feel like it’s yet another task after a long day at work?! Ari makes everything into a productive party. Post wedding, I’m really missing talking to her every day because she’s a mix of a BFF and a fairy godmother who makes all your party dreams come true :)
4. Organization! Absolutely nothing slipped through the cracks on my wedding day/week because of Ari. It was very easy for me to take off the planner hat and put on the Bride hat and just soak in the moment because I trusted Ari 100% to handle everything (And again, I’m a Type A spreadsheet queen- trusting does not come naturally!)
Ari is truly amazing and she will be my planner for any event I throw from here on out! If you want the best planner available (And who doesn’t want the best?!) ARJ Productions is it!

Ari is excellent!
We hired Ari as a month-of coordinator and she was great! She helped organize things for us before the wedding and kept everything on schedule on the day of. She was extremely responsive whenever we contacted her! She was overall great to work with and really allowed me (mother of the bride) to enjoy the day!Sent on 07/07/2019

Like taking a xanax
My family and I would not have survived wedding planning without ARJ productions, there’s no other way to say it. As a “nervous bride,” Ari and her team completely managed my stress and anxiety about the event and found ways to make it FUN, which is what it’s about! We had around 250 guests so there was a lot to manage. We used a ton of Ari's vendors, but the ones we did find on our own Ari worked with flawlessly, which is not always the case with wedding planners. She was on every call with vendors, and my *strong* suggestion would be to do the whole package so you can use her unlimited time, it's just not worth feeling like you can't have full access since the team has a ton of clients at any given time. Ari should think about charging more for her services, because more than planning, wedding organizing for a large and formal wedding is stressful in ways you can't predict before doing it, and Ari and her team are providing not just actual planning but de-stressing reminders so you don't have to freak out! Lastly, Kristen is great. Feel free to reach out if you have more questions.Sent on 07/10/2019
Ari is so wonderful!! When she is in charge, I know my artists don't have a thing to worry about!! She's become a wonderful friend who we absolutely love working with. So thankful for her!!
Very Professional and Highly Recommended.
We've had the pleasure of working with Ari and ARJ Productions on numerous events. She is professional, friendly, and truly pays attention to detail. Our favorite quality that Ari displays is her positive outlook in the face of any challenge that comes her way. She is assertive and knows how to relate to the client. I highly recommend working with her and ARJ Productions.
