Jennifer Ghartey was born amongst the white sandy beaches of Jamaica and permanently relocated to New York City when she was a child, which helped her to cultivate a style that mirrors the luxe metropolitan and the lush Carribean. Her creative, meticulous eye for detail and organizing adaptability encouraged her to plan her own wedding, realizing that her gift in event coordinating had the potential to change lives!
With an extensive background in sales marketing with Fortune 500 companies like Coca-Cola and Michelin, Jennifer married her corporate and logistical prowess with diverse aesthetics to launch her company, Jennifer Rose Weddings & Events. Jennifer brings nearly 8 years of event planning experience to her clients and sharpens her craft by investing in her education, as she participated in the WeddingWire and The Knot's annual workshops and more. Jennifer tapped into her event coordinating genius after attending the Wedding Merchants Business Academy (MBA) at the Las Vegas Convention Center, where she networked with planners, vendors, and defined her space in the industry. She has distinguished herself by obtaining floral arrangement certificates from local College, which taught her how to customize bouquets and other decors. Jennifer's secret weapon is remaining calm under mountains of stress while assuring that the bride's wedding is a magical affair.
Jennifer's dedication to entrepreneurship and women empowerment earned her the 2020 Women In Business International Award. She currently lives in Maryland with her husband and 2 children, where she also owns and operates Studio 9854, a studio event space. When Jennifer isn't planning star-studded events, you may catch her globe-trotting around Jamaica, Mexico, the Cayman Islands or the UK enjoying her favorite cuisine, jerk chicken, rice and peas, and plantains!
