I don't even know how to begin this review because JMEP was incredible start to finish. Due to COVID, this was my 3rd time planning and now in a different state. Long distance planning is tough to say the least and the JMEP team was there every step of the way reassuring us that the weekend will be incredible. Our wedding weekend was a Catholic Cuban and South Asian fusion weekend with so many different elements and the team did not miss once. The team was on every call with vendors guiding us on what would be best while keeping in mind our budget. Special shout out to Ana Mendez who is such a sweetheart with a calm and friendly presence and was the main contact throughout the process. Bella was present throughout the weekend and Jennifer was present on the final wedding day, and those ladies too were phenomenal. The team always made sure the immediate families were okay, the bride and groom were fed/hydrated and they had great communication with our many vendors. Best decision was hiring this team!! Best weekend of our lives!

The perfect wedding planner

Jen and her team were excellent to work with and without them, our perfect wedding day would not have happened. Jen worked with us during the planning process to make sure that every detail was covered and matched what we had envisioned for our wedding. You often hear about how difficult it is to plan a wedding, but Jen made this part of things a breeze for us. She was able to easily adjust our plans when issues came up or if we wanted to change something. She also used her experience planning weddings to help steer our decision in a certain direction when we were indecisive. On the day of the rehearsal, she provided directions to the wedding party so that it was quick and easy. For the wedding day, she and her team made sure that absolutely everything ran smoothly. We followed our schedule exactly as she had planned it out and even got ahead of schedule at certain points, which provided nice breaks in-between events. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was even more amazing. We can't say enough about how our reception turned out. It was everything that we had hoped for and more. We were absolutely thrilled with the outcome and we owe all this to her and her team. What really made Jen stand out though was that she made sure she did everything she could to provide the best day possible. We needed an emergency target run for some things during the middle of everything and she made sure this happened and we got what we needed (shout out to her husband too). We really can't say enough good things about Jen and her team though and are so thankful that we were able to work with them. If we had to do it all over again we would without a doubt pick Jen and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help planning their wedding.

The dream team - couldn't have done this without them!

The entire JMEP team helped us plan and execute an amazing wedding – it was a flawless day and we can’t thank this team or recommend them highly enough. Jennifer was awesome in planning all the details, helping us think through things that we wouldn’t even have thought of. She was organized and decisive, making sure all the details were covered. Megan helped us run the rehearsal and day of execution and she was all over it – she was so much fun to work with and helped us make sure the day went smoothly.

We wanted to give an extra special shoutout to Bailey – who was our lead planner for most of the process. She was exceptional. So much fun to work with, so thoughtful and helped us bring the vision to life, and so thorough and dependable throughout the craziness of the day. Bailey – you absolutely rock and thank you for guiding us through the best day of our lives.
