A Wedding Better Than We Dreamed!!!
It’s hard to write this without getting emotional. Finding Jessica and the Parties A La Carte team made the most special day of our life even more magical than my now husband and I could have ever imagined. Jessica is a true professional and perfectionist. It boggles my mind to think about all the energy, heart and countless hours she & her team put into making sure our wedding was nothing short of perfect. I would often wonder throughout the planning process how she even had time for other clients! No matter how much I reached out to her, or how many times I changed my mind, she was always so patient with me and willing to give me as much time as I needed. When I would struggle with properly expressing things I wanted for decor or flowers, she would discuss my ideas with me and bring to life things I wanted, and each time they were even better than what I had in my head! Living in NYC but having a destination wedding in Florida meant I had no familiarity with any local vendors. This did not matter at all because PALC had so many wonderful suggestions and they were always very mindful of our budget. Jessica pulled together a team of amazing vendors and coordinated everyone and everything effortlessly. She was a calming presence from start to finish and always had things completely under control. I had no idea when I started this process just how much work there would be and in looking back now, I don’t know how I could have done it without Jessica & PALC! Everything they did leading up to it and then the 15 hours of work they put in on our wedding day totally blows my mind. If you want your wedding to be planned perfectly and go off without a hitch, please hire Jessica and Parties A La Carte! I promise you it will be the best decision you make in your wedding planning. The only thing I will warn you about is you will end up liking Jessica so much that after the wedding is over, you are going to be sad that you don’t get to talk to her all the time anymore!!!Sent on 05/06/2019

Jessica and the Parties A'La Carte team are life savers! I had the worlds longest engagement (2 years and 8 months, oh my!) and I tried to plan my own wedding which ended up in flames. I was recommended by my cousin who had Jessica and her team help her on her wedding day so I was familiar with her work and was very impressed with just how smoothly things went for them. So naturally we contacted Jessica and immediately hired her to help with ours....something I should've done immediately. My husband and I both agree that our wedding wouldn't have been as special or memorable if we didn't have her. Jessica was able to make what we envisioned our big day to look like come alive! If you are thinking of hiring anyone to take care of you and your wedding, Jessica and her team are the people to do it! Her passion for her job shows and she makes one of the most stressful moments become fun and easy! Many people said that I was so calm for getting married soon and I attribute that all to Jessica and Parties A'La Carte. Thank you Jessica for fulfilling mine and Chris' dream wedding...we owe it all to you!Sent on 06/12/2019

Exceptional Wedding Planner!
First and foremost, Jessica designed a wedding that exceeded all expectations my husband and I had. It was by far the most beautiful, fun, and memorable day we have ever experienced. Words cannot describe how talented and caring Jessica and the Parties A’ La Carte team are, but I am going to attempt to explain. My husband and I were planning a very large destination wedding at the Don Cesar hotel (we live in Chicago, so it was tough to do the back and forth). We hired Jessica halfway through the planning process and it was by far the best decision we made! Jessica consistently made herself available through calls, texts, and emails to help us design the perfect wedding ceremony and reception. All of the vendors she suggested were top notch, from our florist (Bruce Wayne Florals) to our cake vendor (Hands on Sweets). I am extremely indecisive, so one of my favorite parts of the planning process was that Jessica set up a mock floral/table setting, so I could see what the options looked like prior to selecting anything. The floral/table settings Jessica designed proved that she truly listens to and understands her clients, as they were absolutely perfect and no changes were made.Sent on 05/09/2019
I knew since day one of meeting Jessica that she was passionate about her job and exceptionally talented, but the day of coordination services showed that Jessica and her team TRULY care about their client’s happiness and ensuring that the wedding day is flawless. Anything my husband and I needed on our wedding day, the Parties A’ La Carte team handled in 5 minutes or less (seriously – they are unreal). The Parties A’ La Carte team went above and beyond for us to make sure we had the perfect day and we have no idea what we would have done without them! The team created such a beautiful ceremony/reception design that our guests were posting their table settings/florals on Instagram. My husband and I have been to countless weddings and I have never seen guests Instagram or even remember the table settings/ floral arrangements ---- that’s how good the team is at designing!
Even more impressive than the wedding design, is Jessica’s ability to think on her feet and fix last minute mishaps. Initially, my husband and I had planned a sparkler exit for our wedding, but I didn’t realize you have to specially order sparklers for this type of event (oops). When I discovered it wasn’t possible to have the sparkler exit, Jessica quickly came up with an alternative “grand exit”, where the guests would turn the flash lights on their phones and flower pedals would be thrown in the air. The result was absolutely stunning in the videos/pictures. This situation really spoke to Jessica’s ability to manage a disappointing/stressful moment and turn a last minute uh-oh into something beautiful.
There is so much more that can be said about Parties A’ La Carte and most likely hundreds of stressful situations that the team managed without Steve and I ever knowing. My only wedding regret is that I didn’t hire Jessica earlier in the planning process!
Thank you for everything Jessica, you made our wedding day absolutely perfect!
Very organized and professional. They really think of everything and handle every detail. Very easy to work with and stellar communication. Absolutely a joy to work with.
We've worked at two events with Parties A' La Carte and we are impressed with their professionalism and creativity. We look forward to working with them again and enthusiastically recommend them for your next event!
We worked with Parties A La Carte on a wedding back in October and we had a great time working with them! Jessica was so relaxed and in control and helped the day go so much smoother! We weren't stressed, and the bride wasn't stressed! Everything just went off with out a hitch! We would highly recommend them to anyone and would LOVE to work with them again in the future!
