    Uptown Went Above and Beyond

    We cannot imagine our wedding day without Jessica there to make sure it all ran smoothly. From our first meeting to the big day, Jessica was attentive, organized, and responsive to our many questions. We took advantage of the monthly email reminders she puts together and it helped keep us on track as we were planning the wedding. Even though she was our month-of coordinator she was willing to assist us with questions as we were going through the planning process months out from our date. She was very understanding when we needed to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic (less than three weeks from the wedding date!) and we were able to work with her to reschedule venue coordination walk-throughs and pre-wedding planning meetings.

    During the big day we hardly knew she and her assistant were there; everything just worked. She assisted the other vendors in executing our enhanced COVID precautions and her team went out of their way to help make our guests feel safe and comfortable. She even helped me bustle my lovely bride’s dress! Just as dinner was being prepared to be served, she let us know that a storm was rolling in and about to pour rain over the reception. In less than 5 minutes, Jessica, her assistant, and the venue and catering teams moved all of the tables inside, reset the place settings, brought in the cake table and bar, and had ushered the guests into the cocktail hour building. They then began, with the help of our venue staff, to take guests one-by-one to the reception hall; our guests remarked later on how seamless everything felt. No one panicked, everyone stayed dry, and most importantly everyone was having a good time in spite of the rain thanks to Jessica’s quick thinking.

    Uptown Events really came through for us and we would be happy to recommend them to future couples!

    No regrets booking Uptown Events for our wedding coordination

    Could not have had such a great time at my wedding without Jessica and the Uptown Events team. Throughout my planning process Jessica went above and beyond everything I ever expected of her. She continued to amaze me with her dedication to my event. Along with her incredible organizational skills, quick response time, and knowledge about all things wedding - she is SO sweet! The day of our wedding I had FULL confidence and trust in her to make our day everything we wanted - and she delivered. No hiccups along the way (or if there were - I had no idea! And that's what every bride wants, right?!) I received several compliments from family, friends and vendors about how smooth our day ran. I also had a wonderful experience working with Jessica for my bachelorette party travel planning. She helped arrange accommodations, transportation and itineraries for THIRTEEN girls during our international getaway! Will recommend her to everyone. For everything. Forever. CAN NOT THANK UPTOWN EVENTS ENOUGH!
