The city of Charlottesville is home to Events with Panache, a Virginia wedding planner whose mission is to create stellar wedding experiences for nearly-weds both near and far. In 2008, Jennifer Hamlin founded the company just after her move to Charlottesville, following years of expertise in national and international event planning. Through Events with Panache, Jennifer combines her extensive knowledge of event coordination with her excitement for the sound of wedding bells to give you and your partner a seamless experience.

Services Offered

Jennifer puts the 'panache' in Events with Panache and peace of mind into your planning process through her four wedding coordination packages. With the "Full Service" package, the company takes the reins from beginning to end, promising you hands-on support in searching for the perfect venues, vendors, wedding themes, and decor to match, all within the budget that best suits you. The company's "Wedding Day Coordination" package helps you maintain a sense of control over the planning process but works behind the scenes as a coordinator between you, the venue, and vendors. But if you find you only need a hand with the final details of your big day, the company's "Day Of" package is the perfect option. The team steps in six weeks before the occasion as a helpful resource in perfecting the very last wedding touches. Finally, the "DIY Bride" offers you complete autonomy from start to finish. With just one phone call, Jennifer gives you the advice and tools you need to make your dream wedding a reality - of course, your way.

Jennifer was so kind and wonderful to work with. I used her 6 week out wedding coordinator package. We had one big conversation to do a rough draft of my timeline when I first booked with her. Then I was free to research and book all my vendors how I wanted. (She did provide some helpful recommendations). Since I live several hours away from where the wedding took place, she was able to be flexible with my schedule and do a venue walk through with us much sooner than 6 weeks out. And she was a godsend when I realized I had the sunset time wrong and we had to completely rework my timeline only 2 weeks away from the wedding. She made me feel so confident that my wedding would be a success and it absolutely was! She handled everything on the day of and I was free to have the time of my life!

My experience with Events with Panache was excellent!

I'm so glad I found Jennifer to help me plan and coordinate my wedding day. Jennifer is very experienced and professional, and any questions I could think to ask, she had the answer to! Jennifer also went above and beyond to make my DIY flower dreams come true. I would highly recommend Events with Pinache to any bride and groom looking for an experienced wedding planner or day-of coordinator.

Hire Events with Panache!

Jennifer and the Events with Panache team exceeded my expectations. On the morning of my big day before the team arrived, I actually said "I wish Jennifer was here, she just makes me feel better," and if that doesn't say it all I don't know what does! She was great at coordinating with my vendors, bringing items to my attention that I hadn't thought of, pivoting and reworking plans if any issues came up, and she did it all with a warm and compassionate demeanor.
