World Class Company
Jordan and David were absolutely fantastic to deal with. My husband and I's wedding was directly affected by COVID and the Big Time Creative came through. They were responsive, professional, and had excellent attention to detail; which made our special day stress free and absolutely perfect. On top of all of that the design element of the wedding was world class. If you're looking for an event planner, they should be your first call.Sent on 03/24/2021

Thank you for such kinds words. Cheers!

Search for event managers or coordinators? search no more!
Jess and Jordan were day-of coordinators of our wedding, and they were absolutely amazing! we completely underestimated what a tremendous effect can event managers have when being highly professional as Jess and Jordan were. They handled all the obvious things: making sure everything is on schedule, running the event - and I'm sure you can read more about their great work in other reviews. In this review I want to focus on the less obvious things (at least to me) that were absolutely day-savers for us!Sent on 05/14/2020
Communication - we had a pretty complicated event, every item or service was provided by a different vendor and people, some weren't very communicative. One of our biggest fears was that some services won't show up (on time or at all!), that they won't do what we agreed on - Jess really helped to sort that all out as we got closer to the event.
Problem mitigation - we had a few things that didn't go according to plan (due to other vendors) and Jess and Jordan did a fantastic job in resolving situations as seamlessly as possible and moving on with the event.
Trust and advisory - Jess and Jordan gave us recommendations and shared with us valuable knowledge. We had A LOT of questions as we never planned an event before, and they answered everything thoughtfully and at length whenever needed. We felt like we're getting a personal treatment, which proved to be so important. We trusted them to pay / buy things as needed throughout the event so that we won't need to handle it, and they did a phenomenal work that really showed common sense.
To wrap up - after talking with multiple event managers and being highly skeptical of the value that they will add to our wedding, we are so happy that we chose Big Time Creatives as they were really down-to-earth and professional.
Big Time Creatives's reply:Gloria, thank you so much for your kind words and really highlighting those key elements that a wedding planner brings to the table. It was such a pleasure working with you and we wish you and Martin all the best!

The Best There Is....
This past weekend was the wedding for my only daughter. Having never put together a wedding before several friends had highly recommended hiring a wedding coordinator. Not hiring one was the one thing they all deeply regretted. We hired Jordan, the owner of Big Time Creatives to coordinate the "month-of" and "day-of" details and she assigned Jess to our event. Even though they clearly told us what they would do for us, for whatever reason, I didn't fully know what to expect. But the results were truly "off-the-charts" above my expectations, and I was blown away at all Jess did for us. It was worth every penny, in fact it was the highest "value-add" of anything we spent money on for the event. During the month prior to the event, she coordinated with every vendor to ensure they were clear about the schedule and expectations, prepared a minute-by-minute timeline for the day of the event, and coordinated all the little details we requested. The day of the event went off like clockwork, and without a hitch. Logistics were perfectly coordinated - analogous to a conductor of a large orchestra - timing was literally perfect. Other than walking my daughter down the aisle (which of course I was proud to do!!), Jess did it all. They have my highest unconditional recommendation.Sent on 10/23/2019
Big Time Creatives's reply:John, thank you so much for your kind words. It was our honor and pleasure to be a part of Katie and Eric's beautiful day! I'm so glad you had such a seamless experience and we wish the best for you all.

David is an avid "pinner" on Pinterest, believes that all things happen for a reason and is deathly afraid of sharks!
David's favorite things: art, video games, french bulldogs, vintage tin toys, bow ties, comic books and vodka drinks...not necessarily in that order.
Jess grew up in Santa Barbara, California and after graduating from ULCA with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Design and Media Arts, she moved to Austin on New Year’s Day, 2011. She discovered her love for event planning at a young age, working with her mom to plan, design and execute live and silent auctions for many non-profits in Southern California. The magical balance of left and right brain drew Jess in; event coordinating gave her an opportunity to be both creative and logistical and she was hooked.
There is nothing more satisfying for Jess than seeing a client’s vision come together day-of. She knows that amazing creativity is lost without seamless coordination and strives to execute both for each and every client. With the right planning approach, she believes that no idea is too “crazy”.
Jess is open and eager to try any new outdoor activity, always has a corny joke up her sleeve and is terrified of touching the bottom of the lake barefoot!
Jess’ favorite things: sketchbook doodles, dark comedies, her pups, Big Fred and Sparrow, living room dance parties with her fiancé, Stephen, and, always, a frozen margarita on a patio.
