    Beyond amazing.

    I cannot recommend Jennifer and her team enough. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer over a long period of time (thank you COVID) and I never had any doubt that regardless of what was going on in the world, we did not need to worry about anything for our wedding. Through rescheduling, last minute drop-outs due to people being sick and so much more, Jennifer and her team were on top of making sure everything went smoothly. Her style and design truly transformed the already beautiful Powel Crosley Estate into the venue of our dreams. It was so amazing to see the vision we had spoken of come to life. Jennifer has so many contacts in the industry and I knew anyone she recommended would be the best of the best. This was especially key as we are not local to Sarasota and we wanted to make sure the vendors we chose were ones that we would be happy with. We never wanted the day to end. I highly recommend utilizing Jennifer for any special event you are planning.

    The absolute best

    The easiest and best decision we made for our wedding was hiring Jennifer Matteo and her team. Not only is Jen and her team incredibly talented, they’re amazing human beings and so much fun to work with. JMEP made the whole process of planning our wedding fun and stress free. From every vendor they recommended, to the show table(s), to every small detail, everything was so amazing!! I’m sure I wasn’t the easiest client they’ve had - I was the annoying bride that changed everything twice- but they never made me feel short of amazing. I can’t get over of how perfect our wedding day was, all thanks to Jen, Bridgette, and the rest of the team. We love JMEP and will find another reason to hire them again soon. Thank you - we are forever grateful!
