Genevieve James Events did an amazing job with our wedding at the Stoneleigh Hotel!

We cannot say enough good things about Geni. She is a pro and her and her team helped us immensely. She is calm, extremely responsive, diplomatic and available at nearly all times. She had access to good, affordable and excellent vendors, such as floral, makeup, hair & rental items. She made our day so much more enjoyable by managing venue, vendors & deliveries and communicating re last minute change from outdoor ceremony to indoor due to heat. It was smooth and seemless. She is exceptional and we do not hesitate to recommend her. Our event had only 50 attendees and we thot we could go it on our own w/o a planner, but we are so glad we hired her. We hired her about 2 months from the date and wish we had done so sooner. She relieved a lot of my stress from all the decisions. She also assisted with paperless invites and managing RSVPs. She was worth every penny and then some. Way to go, Geni!

Exceptional Planning and Organization by Geni!

Geni provided exceptional planning and coordination for my daughter’s wedding. I can’t say enough about the professional and personal service that Geni provided for planning and facilitating my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding event. Geni helped us coordinate and secure top-notch vendors, including a caterer, cake provider, florist, DJ and more, and reviewed all the contracts and followed-up with each to ensure a seamless event.

She also created an event timeline leading up to the wedding as well as a detailed schedule for the day of. This planning and attention to detail ensured that the wedding was seamless and everyone could enjoy the day. Her assistant on the day of the event Whitney, was also phenomenal. Both Geni and Whitney were calm, warm and absolutely exceptional. I am so grateful as the mother-of-the-bride I could enjoy myself and focus on my daughter and guests. Thank you Geni for helping to create a gorgeous and stunning event. Our friends and family raved about the wedding and said it was the best wedding they have been to!

One of the Best

I hired Geni using her partial planning services. Working with her was an absolute dream. She was my advisor and confidant every step of the way. She made herself available to me day or night for any questions or concerns. She recommended some of the BEST vendors that she already had good relationships with, and developed great working relationships with the vendors I chose who'd she'd never worked with before. She reviewed every single vendor contract before I signed it and raised questions and concerns that I wouldn't have thought about without her. She made the weeks and days leading up to the wedding feel like a breeze. You can tell Geni has been in the business a long time and knows what she's doing. You won't go wrong hiring her!

Owner/Lead Planner

I have lived in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area since childhood and started to work in the event industry as an assistant event planner at a high-end country club while attending college.

After graduating with a Business degree, I decided my passion was working with people to create an amazing experience through event planning. Over the span of 25 years, I have worked with thousands of weddings, social and corporate events. During that time, I have worked at venues, in off- premise catering and also my wedding planning company. When I decided to start Genevieve James Event Planning, I knew I would utilize that experience and strong vendor relationships that are so invaluable in this line of work.

I would love to connect!
