    Creative and amazing event planner

    Jenelle is seriously amazing. I postponed my 2020 wedding to 2021. I had most planning done, but was still overwhelmed since my wedding was 5 hours away from where I lived. I hired Jenelle about 6 months before my wedding to help with all the little details and to keep me on track. We talked every month and she was really helpful with keeping me on track and giving me some ideas that fit with my theme. She was truly amazing the week of and day of my wedding. All my decorations and vision came to life and were perfect. I especially loved her creativeness with my champagne wall/escort cards! She is the best, hire her!!!

    Best Vendor Decision Ever!

    Jenelle seriously knocked it out of the park. Without her help I have no clue how our wedding would’ve all worked out. The week leading up to my wedding I was so much more stress free than I expected because Jenelle was already coordinating with all of my other vendors and taking care of things for me. She was a total life saver and made our day go exactly as we wanted. It was better than we could have imagined. She went totally above and beyond and was nothing but helpful and responsive the whole time. Thank you Jenelle!!

    Thank you Brianna! It was so great working with you, Ryan, and your family on such a special day. I know this one was a long time coming with bumps in the road for you. But it all turned out so beautiful and touching. I for sure had tears throughout the day. Thanks for trusting me and my team, it was lovely!

    Incredibly helpful and encouraging!

    Jenelle was amazing! Planning a wedding during Covid was becoming so overwhelming, so we reached out to Merry Up for day-of coordinating services. I feel like “day-of” does not accurately express how much help Jenelle gave us leading up to the event! It was so great to be able to text her anytime and she checked in often to see how she could help/how everything was going. This was especially helpful because COVID restrictions and cases kept growing as my wedding date got closer, and many adjustments had to be made. It was helpful to have Jenelle to talk things out with and she never seemed overwhelmed with the changes (like I was, haha!). In addition to that she was so encouraging and reassuring along the way. Not every vendor has that skill, which can feel discouraging from a bride perspective, so it was really wonderful to have that from Jenelle! On the day of the wedding I did not have to worry about a thing, and it was such a special day because I knew everything was taken care of! Additionally we took advantage of Merry Up’s decor inventory which added special touches all around the ceremony and reception spaces. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our day so special! We wouldn’t have changed a thing.

    Thank you so much Grace! You and Sam had a gorgeous and meaningful fall wedding. I was so glad to be a part of it! Your family and friends loved and celebrated you both well. I loved the surprise video and song too💗 It was an honor. Thank you for the kind words. You were shinning that whole day! - Jenelle
