Exceptional attention to detail

From the groom: Jamie kept everyone on track and moving during all phases of the wedding and was entirely worth everything we spent on her during the process.

From the bride: We hired Jamie for day of coordination. But she helped all the way along. She put together a comprehensive wedding day timeline that ensured everything went smoothly. She ran our rehearsal the day before the wedding. We had a large bridal party and she was able to keep them moving. On the day of the wedding, she made it very clear any questions should be directed towards her so that I wouldn鈥檛 have to worry. Only later did I find out how much work she had done to arrange decor, keep people where they needed to be, and that she even sewed my mother鈥檚 button back onto her dress when it came off. Thank you Jamie!

Insightful and Organized

I hired Jaime for my daughter鈥檚 wedding in June, 2022 (Wedding Day Management Package). She was recommended by the planner I used in a prior wedding who was no longer in the business and had used Jaime for her own wedding. Jaime was very diligent and detail oriented, which allowed us to have productive calls with her. She brought up ideas and issues that we had not thought about and had great suggestions. She ran a terrific rehearsal the day before the wedding, and I think everyone felt more confident about the ceremony. The best part was the actual wedding day! She made sure items needed for the ceremony, greeters, and other areas were set up (and later collected them). She took over small things that I otherwise would have had to deal with. She averted a few small problems. She moved flowers that were used during the ceremony to the head table as we planned. room. She kept watch and made sure were on schedule. The wedding went as we had envisioned it! We enjoyed working with Jaime and I recommend her.

Best Decision We Made!

Hiring Jaime was the best decision we made for our wedding! I am an organized person and a good planner, but I quickly learned that planning a wedding is much more than that! Jaime helped us with emails, vendor relations, decor, day-of-timeline, not to mention fielding and answering every question on the day-of. We enjoyed our day worry-free! In addition to her exceptional skills, she is incredibly easy to work with and responded quickly to all of our questions. I truly credit Jaime with making the day turn out exactly how we imagined. I cannot recommend her services enough.

Team

Jaime Engebretson
Jaime Engebretson
Owner and Executive Event Planner

What started as an eagerness to plan baby and bridal showers for family and friends, and a talent for day-of wedding coordination, grew into a passion Jaime couldn鈥檛 ignore. It gave her the push to start her own event planning business after 15 years in the corporate world where she honed her project and time management skills. Her natural knack for planning, coupled with a Masters in Project Management and a certification from the New York Institute of Arts for Event Planning, make her equipped to plan any event you can dream of.

When Jaime is not coordinating events, she can be found at home with her husband and their three lovely boys. As a family, they enjoy reading, playing with Legos, or doing some sort of science experiment. Jaime also enjoys cooking, baking, and entertaining guests at her home in Maple Grove.

I've had the honor of working with J'aime Event on several occasions. They are professional, creative, organized, detailed, and very friendly. Everyone needs to have a wedding planner (either a full planner from start to finish, or a day-of to handle all the little things people don't realize happen on the wedding day) and J'aime Events is the perfect planner for that. BTW - they also do more than just weddings.
