    She really does design dreams!!

    If you want a perfect day, call Jana Ingraham! I knew from the first time I spoke with her on the phone that I wanted her on board for our special day. She is so experienced and truly understands the ins and outs of a wedding. Not only that, she is warm, energetic yet calming, organized, professional, and so sweet!! I hired her as my month of coordinator and she fixed every single one of my mess ups without a blink of an eye and a smile on her face. Everyone in our wedding party said multiple times that they wished they had hired her for their weddings. She really is that good! Hire her, trust her, and let her do her thing- she will plan your dream wedding and think of things that you would never even begin to consider. You will not regret it and it will be the best money you spend for your entire celebration- I can promise you that. I only wish now that I would have just let her plan the whole thing!

    Must Hire this Awesome Team!

    I’m trying to sit and think about how I can write a review that reflects the absolute gratitude we have for Design a Dream events.
    Our wedding was this Saturday and it was by far the most incredible day of my life. Jana has been planning this wedding with me for over an entire year. She has been there for us at all of our meetings, she led me to all the best vendors, she’s answered well over 100 emails from me. Our planner has been honest, open, full of advice and guidance leading up to this incredibly important day in our lives.
    The entire process was dealt with such professionalism and promptness. The day of our wedding, Jana and her team made sure that everything was perfect. She kept our 20 person wedding party in place and dealt with everyone with grace, kindness and a perfect amount of assertiveness. The four of them on our wedding day set everything up perfectly as I envisioned, stuck to the awesome timeline created for us, made sure all guests were comfortable and guided in the right direction and made sure that I was okay at all times. Not only did they set up everything, they also helped load an entire u-haul of supplies at the end of the night. Everything was taken care for us from the moment we walked into the venue to the moment we stepped out. Our guests are still talking about how well every single detail was organized and how the day went so smoothly, thanks to Design a Dream Events.
