We would recommend Jen and First Pick Planning wholeheartedly. We stumbled upon her after an online search as we wanted someone who had previously worked our unique venue. The next day our contact from the venue itself recommended her. Then we met her for an interview and she opened a timeline google doc and we knew it was meant to be.Sent on 09/17/2019
Throughout the whole planning process (almost a year), I kept joking that if it wasn't for Jen, we would be eloping. It wasn't really a joke, it is actually true. It was both our first wedding and the whole process is very overwhelming, neither of us had planned something of this scale. As we are both fully employed with jobs which don't allow for weeding planning during the day, we chose the Full Planning Service. It was absolutely worth it. Jen guided us along the way and connected us with professional vendors. She brought our vision to reality.
The day of our wedding also went off without any major hitches and all of our guests had a great time. Most importantly, we loved the finished product. Jen went above and beyond for us. At one point, we even gave her the key to our apartment, so clearly, she is highly trustworthy. Jen truly was enthusiastic and at many times felt we were her only client, especially the week of. Jen was very reasonably priced when compared to the market for LA weddings. We would definitely recommend her for any wedding, anywhere!
Jen is professional, organized and she is very nice.
One of the best decisions we made.

I am so beyond happy that Jen was our wedding planner. From the start she was so organized and professional. I knew within minutes of talking to her that she would make the whole wedding process easy and fun! She is so easy to talk to that it is like talking to a sister! Our wedding went off without a hitch and we have Jen to thank for that!!Sent on 11/09/2019

When it comes to working with a wedding planner, it can go either smooth or very rough. I have had experiences with both and working with Jen at last nights wedding was amazing. She was in constant communication with me to ensure that before i made any announcements as the M.C. that everyone was where they needed to be. She helped facilitate the timing of the formalities to ensure that the photographer got all their shots before having to go overtime which would have cost the client extra. From the first email to the final clean up Jen and her team were professional and very fun to work with. If you are looking for a wedding planner that truly cares about the success of your event you cannot go wrong with First Pick Planning. I cant wait for us to work together again.
Jen and her team at First Pick will handle every detail of your event with precision and taste! She is calm, organized and so easy to work with! I love working with Jen!
One word describes First Pick Planning....Professional! As a fellow vendor we appreciate being in the loop of things and well they sure are in check of Itinerary. This helps rents run smooth. We look forward in working together once again in the near future.
