Master of the complex farm wedding!
I’m not even sure where to begin thanking Jeffery and his team (Sylvia) for the amazing work that they did for my husband and I for our wedding at my parents country home this summer. There were so many moving parts and details which they absolutely nailed. It was just amazing, he’s and absolute maestro!Sent on 09/12/2019
My husband and I have had the privilege for working for one of NYC’s premier catering companies for years, and that is where we met Jeff. Since his departure with the company he has been shining creating some of the most remarkable and memorable events for others, when I was ready to plan my own I couldn’t think of anyone else who would help make my special day as perfect as he did. I’m so thankful that I called him because there was no way I could have pulled it off without him.
His vision, attention to detail, ability to have all the vendors work together is like nothing I’ve ever seen. For example, we originally were planning to have a buffet outside, when all the guest were seated it started pouring. Jeff and his team with the help of the caterers seamlessly pulled together a family style service while speeches were commencing. Most of the guest didn’t even know that 1. It rained or 2. It was supposed to be a buffet and not family style. Once dinner was over it was clear skies and the party continued! I like to think Jeff planned that as well!
Jeff is assertive and makes sure that your vision is brought out to its fullest capacity. He makes sure all of the details are taken care of and just when you think that its stressful and there’s too much weight on your shoulders he quickly assures you and helps calm you and works hard at taking away tasks which may burden you. I’m beyond thankful for having him perfect my wedding and blessed to call him a friend!

Every bride needs Jeff on their team!
I am the mother of the bride. We hired Jeff about 3 months prior to the wedding when we started to become overwhelmed by all the details. Our venue and all of our vendors had already been selected by us. We thought we just needed help for the day of and for creating a time line. Well, Jeff not only did that for us, he went well over and beyond our expectations on so many other things. He went with us to meet with the florist to discuss the centerpieces, he was there when we had the big meeting with the venue to discuss the menu, linens, floor plan, etc., he went with my daughter TWICE to her dress fitting and offered advice when she was concerned about the bustle, he recommended an excellent vendor to finish the addressing of the invitations. He made the most excellent suggestion of doing a vinyl dance floor to really add the extra touch and pizazz to the room and then found us the most cost effective vendor and made all the arrangements to have it done. At first we were reluctant to spend the extra money for the vinyl dance floor but in the end we were so happy we listened to Jeff’s suggestion. Jeff knows his wedding stuff having been in the wedding business for most of the career. His immense knowledge, expertise and attention to detail were priceless. We felt that the cost of his services was definitely great value and money well spent. I honestly don’t think the wedding would’ve been as spectacular as it was without his assistance! In addition to all this, Jeff is such a kind, generous, thoughtful, funny and genuinely warm person. I adored him after our first phone conversation and now that the wedding is over, he has become a friend. His assistant Sylvia is a doll and was an immense help on the wedding day. She scouted out the perfect first look location in the hotel for us and was constantly buzzing around making sure no details were overlooked. I would HIGHLY recommend Jeff Stillwell to any bride whether you think you need him or not....believe me, you need him!Sent on 09/20/2019

Do we need an event planner? YES and Jeff Stillwell is one of the best!
We had been planning the venue and catering and other elements of the wedding on our own but then within a month of the ceremony we started to notice things getting tougher to keep organized. Then we finally decided to contact Jeff and his team. From the get-go he delivered a polished service with all of the attention and experience one would expect. But what really pushed the experience above and beyond was his swift and calming influence during emotionally fraught times. With weeks to go the DJ equipment fell through - Jeff jumped into action and had a solution in place within less than 12 hours. The fact that Jeff has produced so many events meant he knew well ahead of time what problems could lie in wait - and he effortlessly dealt with them as they arose. Leading up to the event he was a trusted advisor and a calming sooth sayer. Then on the day of the event he was an absolute star - taking on the duties of organizing the vendors, interfacing with the venue, orchestrating large family photos and making sure everyone had a fantastic time. We would highly recommend Stillwell Events for anyone who wants their wedding day to go off with aplomb and without a hitch!Sent on 12/27/2018
