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!

A+ Would Recommend - Grooms' Perspective

Guys – make sure your bride to be has a wedding planner. And for those of you lucky enough to work with Jennifer at Jennifer Matteo Event Planning, you will be all set!

Jennifer was incredibly detailed, thorough and exceptional to work with. As many guys believe, once we pop the question, we’re practically done right? Being engaged was really the end of anything I needed to think about. When people would ask me, “how’s the wedding planning going?”, I would respond, “my wedding will be my surprise party.”

But okay – let me tell you, it was not only the best party of my life but the best weekend of my life and JMEP is to thank. We live in New York City and Jennifer and her team from the very beginning understood my bride’s vision and helped execute it without us feeling like we needed to even be in Florida. I was most impressed with the attention to detail and creativity in every aspect of the celebration. With every wedding there could be hiccups but Jennifer was there the entire time and addressed anything that came up in real time without us even knowing it was going on. For us, the day flowed seamlessly, and we were able to enjoy every moment without a worry in the world, thanks to the meticulous planning, execution and being there for us.

We have received countless compliments from our guests about the beauty of the venue, the smoothness of the event, and the overall magical atmosphere. All credit goes to Jennifer and her amazing team.

From the bottom of our hearts, Jennifer was able to turn our idea of a dream wedding into a reality that we’re still living. The passion for what you do shines through, and we feel incredibly fortunate to have had you by our side on this special journey.

Thank you!

Simply the best!!

We hired Jennifer over a year prior to our daughter’s wedding day and it was by far the best decision we made! Jennifer and her team are phenomenal! Her knowledge, suggestions, guidance was so professional. She had every detail covered. We shared with her our vision and expectations and when the wedding day arrived, seeing it all come together was amazing and exactly what we had planned for. She became more than just our wedding planner but a friend. Our daughter’s wedding day ran so smoothly with Jennifer and team! Thank you for helping us create such an extraordinary wedding!
