    Wedding Review

    Jamie was fantastic at leading us through the wedding planning process and then taking charge with last minute changes required to accommodate the weather. She was very familiar with the wedding venue and the vendors we used and became our contact with them to make sure everything went smoothly on the day of the wedding from our transportation, flowers, caterer, cake baker, photographer and venue representative. My daughter's wedding day was perfect! I highly recommend Jamie as she made the day's events much more enjoyable for our daughter and our family.

    Sophisticated Designer and Thoughtful Planner

    We are so thankful to have found Jessica at Uptown Events to execute our wedding. Not only did Jessica and her assistant Jamie execute a flawless wedding day, Jessica also helped design our event from the start.

    Design: Jessica met with us to understand the look and feel of our wedding and then put together a beautiful design board for us. Not only did it perfectly capture our vision, but it came with detail like the color of the tablecloth from an actual Austin rental company. This was fantastic because we were able to order linens sight unseen while planning our wedding from Houston. We were also able to forward this board directly on to our florist who helped bring the vision to life. A really great service option if you're wanting to take ownership in some of the planning but with a little guidance!

    Planning: Jessica is incredibly organized and no detail slipped by her. We hired her for month-of-coordination but she was there as a resource the whole time! Her tailored vendor recommendation list provided us with comfort that we were hiring reputable vendors. Also, she has discount codes, which is something I didn't think about when setting aside budget for a wedding planner. She was proactive in reaching out to us with tips and updates regarding COVID and local vendor trends. Unfortunately due to pandemic impact, our initial caterer went out of business 2 weeks before the wedding. However, Jessica helped us schedule a virtual walk through with the new caterer and no one would have known that this was a last minute change.

    Jessica and her team are professional, joyful, patient and kind. We highly recommend hiring Uptown Events!
