Jazmin is a godsend
I don't think it's really possible to put into words how incredible Jazmin is. She was there for us 100% of the time, helping us plan our original wedding and then adapting that vision to work with the current situation. Anytime we started to feel any sort of stress, anxiety, or uncertainty, Jazmin immediately made us feel completely at ease. She is so hardworking, organized, creative, resourceful, and overall just the kind of person you want to be around. She always replied to our concerns promptly and had a million solutions to every issue. I'm honestly sad this wedding is over because I'm going to miss talking to her all the time! Jazmin and her team are so wonderful and will make sure you have the wedding you've always imagined -- I can't recommend them enough!!!Sent on 09/13/2020

Jazmin is AMAZING!!!
There are not enough words to say how incredible Jazmin and her team are. We worked with Jazmin over a year-long engagement, and she was an absolute godsend. She's patient, organized, thoughtful, and fun, and every conversation I had with her made me feel so at ease with the wedding planning process. She is full of great ideas and knew absolutely everything that needed to be done, and when it needed to be done.Sent on 02/01/2020
There was one point where a makeup artist cancelled a makeup trial on me (day-of), so I called Jazmin and asked for help (I had traveled to another city just for that trial). It turned out that she was moving into a new house that day, but she insisted on dropping everything to find some options to help me out. It was so kind and she of course solved the issue immediately.
When we got to the rehearsal, Jazmin coordinated both the wedding party and our respective families effortlessly. Afterwards, every single member of my bridal party (six people!) came up to me independently just to rave about how great she is. This continued through the wedding itself. Whenever something small came up, Jazmin solved the problem before we even really realized what was going on. We felt so, so blessed to have her in our corner.
We really couldn't have pulled off the wedding without Jazmin, and we are so thankful to have worked with her. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! She is AMAZING!

Easy and Wonderful!
Anyvent Planning was amazing to work with! Planning a wedding during a pandemic is no fun but Jazmin and her team just made life more joyful. I hired them for month-of coordination so once you think you cannot plan anymore…they step in and take over! It is such a stress reliever! After planning a wedding for a year, I was a bit unsure if they would understand my vision but once I met Dionna, I was reassured that my wedding was under control. The week before my wedding, Virginia lowered their occupancy gatherings to no more than 25 people. Jazmin was already prepared for damage control. We decided to move forward with a micro wedding and it was just beautiful. These women are just easy to talk to and so positive. I highly recommend!Sent on 12/03/2020

Above and Beyond!
Jazmin is absolutely unflappable, and I couldn't recommend her highly enough! As a COVID-couple, we had to postpone our wedding twice before finally having a microwedding in August 2020. In each case, Jazmin and Anyvent were flexible and ready to jump in to make our wedding perfect. I felt like she was "in the trenches" with us, so to speak, as we planned and replanned our special day. She approached everything with a positive attitude and a smile She is very responsive, has great design ideas, and is incredibly friendly and fun to work with. Her experience in the Charlottesville and DC areas is extensive, and she has strong relationships with other excellent vendors -- whenever we needed a recommendation she came through with an absolute star. We can't wait to work with Anyvent again when we finally have our postponed reception in 2022.Sent on 12/29/2020

Jazmin/Dionna did AMAZING
The Anyvent team was so amazing! I knew I wanted to get a wedding planner for at least 6 months before my wedding because I had no clue what I was doing. I needed someone who can help me book vendors and take care of all the logistics. Jazmin and Dionna did just that. Jazmin helped me so much at the being booking vendors and keeping me updated on any questions that came up. She took care of all the behind the scenes and made it so easy for me. Dionna took over the day of the wedding and just wow, I did not have to lift a finger. She took care of EVERYTHING! If I had a question, should knew the answer or she would find the answer for me very quick. I know they say brides can get so stress right before the wedding and the day of but with Jazmin and Dionna I had ZERO stress. They truly are 2 amazing women. Also, forgot to mention 2 weeks before the wedding a new COVID-19 guideline came out. This change the gathering guidelines from 250 to 25. Of course this was a huge shock but Jazmin did not hesitate to reach out and helped replan out the day. We decided to still get married with just 25 guests and Jazmin/Dionna made it a seamless transition. I would recommend this team to anyone and everyone!Sent on 12/01/2020

Best of the Best Event Planner
Don’t even debate for a second who to hire for your event planning - Jazmin and her team are the BEST! My husband, family, and I all cannot day enough good things about AnyVent Event Planning. First, Jazmin, has the sweetest, kindest personality, and puts you at total ease, and you feel genuine joy just talking to her for even a moment. Second, Jazmin is incredibly organized and needs little to no direction - she’s just on top of everything down to the tiniest detials of your day. For example, Jazmin even delivered my dog a water bowl with fresh water and bones during the ceremony. Or, during our sunset pictures, she had a golf cart arranged to drive us to picture spots to ensure we got back to the reception quickly to enjoy our guests. We hadn’t even asked for that! That’s just two of MANY examples of her attentiveness and organization. Third, Jazmin and her teammates work SO well with your vendors. They all loved her. Fourth, her knowledge and professionalism is top notch. You can tell she knows exactly what she’s doing and has mastered her craft. Jazmin facilitated our event in a way that we were able to truly relax and enjoy our day and didn’t have to worry about a thing. I could go on, but I’d write a book. Jazmin is a must for your event!Sent on 07/25/2019
Anyvent's reply:Thank you so much for all of the love Ashley! You and your wonderful family made our job extremely easy and you were all so amazing to work with! I am so happy that we had the opportunity to make your day as stress free as possible so that you could truly enjoy everything. Wishing you, Lee (and Bentley) the best happily ever after! We'll definitely keep in touch!

We experienced the best wedding anyone could imagine. Jazmine and her staff made the event seamless. They were on top of every aspect of the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. All was done without you realizing they were present. It was like magic! I would highly recommend using Anyvent for all of your upcoming events.Sent on 07/08/2019

Don't think twice. Best decision ever!
I cannot say enough good things about Jazmin. She is the ABSOLUTE BEST! She was available for me whenever I needed her. The coordination of the entire event was so seamless thanks to her. Every single detail was thought of. Her decoration skills are AMAZING! I didn't have to worry about anything because I knew she had everything under control. The day of the wedding the bus who was driving half the guests broke down on the way to pick them up, which caused a delay with the start time. Jazmin and her assistant kept in contact with the bus driver to ensure they had the proper ETA and we could adjust appropriately. This would have completely ruined my wedding had this super woman not been by my side. Once we got past that hurdle, she surprised me with the most beautifully decorated venue I could have hoped for. She helped make my wedding a fairytale. This would not have been the amazing night it was, had it not been for all her help. Do not think twice about working with her; best decision ever.Sent on 04/20/2019
Anyvent's reply:Thank you so much Maria! You and your family were such a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. We were so happy to be able to put your mind at ease during the hiccup and were so excited that the venue was everything that you imagined it would be. The best news that we can hear when all is said and done is that we executed the dream! We wish you and Mike all the best... We are beyond grateful that we got to be a part of your day!

Amazing!! Couldn’t have done it without Anyvent!!!
Our wedding last June went off without a hitch 100% in thanks for Jazmin and her Anyvent team. She was such a great source of advice and an amazing coordinator with all our different vendors leading up to the day, and on the day of, she was on top of all the details so that we could relax and really enjoy the day — she put together perfect schedules with all the timings, names, and roles for everyone, she worked alongside the photographer to wrangle our big families and make sure we got the best shots, and even made sure the end-of-night details we totally forgot to plan for, like packing up gifts and flower clean-up were taken care of....she was so seamless and upbeat through it all, it was like having a BFF be the DD of our special day :) !! Jaz 100% made the day for us and we have been saying ever since we don’t think we would have made the day happen without her (or would definitely not have been able to just love and enjoy the day as much as we did!). She took care of so many things, even stuff that we didn’t even know about until after because we hadn’t anticipate them, just to make our day and memories perfect — like that she ran out to buy extra flowers for the photographer when we forgot to order extras for some details shots...she went above and beyond, and then beyond! You will be so grateful to have her on your team, we are so thankful she was on ours!!!Sent on 10/12/2020

Most Stress-free Wedding Ever!
There aren’t even words for how thankful I am that we booked with Jazmin and the Anyvent team. They were absolute angels! We decided to book day of services but Jazmin actually started helping us a few weeks before the event. She handled the creating of a timeline, coordination with all vendors, set up of the reception space and décor, keeping track of our card box, alcohol, tip cards, led a sparkler exit, brought us drinks and snacks during photos, seriously, you name it, they did it! We realized right before the ceremony started that we had about 10 minutes to clear out the entire getting ready space and get our bags in the car…Jazmin’s team swooped them all up and made sure every last item made it into a car. They even stayed behind at the end of the reception to help package up alcohol and décor and load into cars. Not one single item was missing the next day (I don’t know how they did this!). Her team was there to handle every little speed bump and made it so we quite literally just had to show up and enjoy our day. I have never seen a wedding run so smoothly and it is 100% due to her team. Do yourself a favor and book with AnyventSent on 06/06/2019

One of the best decisions we made
Jazmin and the Anyvent team were easily one of the best decisions we made. We worked with Jazmin month-of, and Bianca took the helm on the day-of with 2 assistants. Jazmin was responsive and patient every step of the way, which is a tall order for a bride (me) that is a professional project manager (but also has never planned a wedding).Sent on 05/18/2019
Everyone that interacted with them on the day-of had nothing but complementary things to say. Our florist said they were the best team she's ever worked with.
Perhaps the most important thing - things didn't go perfectly (they never do). Our DJ was in a minor car accident on the way to the wedding and arrived at the end of cocktail hour. Bianca immediately jumped in and found some portable speakers, downloaded our songs, and ran the ceremony. All while checking in with the DJ in case we needed further contingency plans.
If you hire Anyvent, you won't regret it!
Anyvent's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to review our services Danielle! It was such a pleasure getting to know you and Josh during the planning process and I'm thrilled that you were happy with Team Anyvent's execution of your event! I'm so happy that our team was able to fix the day's hiccups so that you could enjoy your time with family and friends. Cheers to your happily ever after and thank you for trusting us on your big day!

Jazmin and Anyvent were perfect!
Everyone keeps asking me about my wedding and all I can say is that it was perfect! I worked with Jazmin and Anyvent with the "Day of Coordination" service, and it was exactly what I needed. My expectations were far exceeded! I am someone with a strong vision and I manage and plan large initiatives in my day-job, so I figured I could plan my own wedding. Along the way, I learned that there are so many nuances and details to wedding planning that I could not have imagined. Plus, my venue was non-traditional and required additional coordination and creativity to make it work. Jazmin not only took the time to ask me thoughtful questions when I reached out to make sure we were a good fit to work together, but promptly answered any questions I had along the way, and came in weeks before the actual wedding to review my plans with me detail by detail to make sure everything would be covered. She offered to help where I needed help, and also let me manage where I wanted to manage. She showed up the day before the wedding and was hands on, right along side of me and my best friend setting everything up and making sure the day would be perfect. On the day of, she showed up with an ease and a smile that immediately made me feel like I had nothing to worry about...and I didn't! The day truly was perfect and I couldn't have done it without Jazmin.Sent on 05/15/2019

As a wedding photographer of 10 years, I have worked with so many planners in the industry. However, this experience was a little different for me since I was traveling out of state to get to this wedding. Jazmin was incredible at keeping me in the loop, communicating our couple's wishes and needs, going above and beyond at thoroughly explaining the flow of the day, the lay out of the venue, including me in offering my opinion from a photographers standpoint to ensure we were all on the same page. On the day of the wedding, she and her team delivered 110% going above and beyond to keep the day flowing smoothly for our couple. They were friendly, helpful and carried themselves with professionalism and fun. I HIGHLY recommend this team and can't thank them enough for a seamless event!Sent on 07/30/2019

Best day of coordinator ever!
If you are looking for a day of coordinator, look no further-Jazmin at Anyvent is your girl!Sent on 03/31/2019
In short, I am a very Type A person and have a hard time letting go of control. But on the day of my wedding, I had an AMAZING time because I really felt comfortable handing the reigns over to Jazmin. I wasn't worrying about logistics, about vendors, about sticking to our timeline, or anything else, which meant I could focus on having a good time and enjoy the day (and my family and friends could do that too!). Of all of our vendors, I think Jazmin was the one that was absolutely indispensable ! If you don't hire her, you are going to miss out!!
From the moment we met Jazmin, we knew we were in good hands. She really listened to our vision for our wedding and was very thorough and made sure she understood everything that was needed and wanted. She really took the time to get to know us, so we felt comfortable working with her on the day of the wedding. By the end we honestly felt like we had known her for years, even though we had only met about a month before the wedding.
As far as logistics go, Jazmin and her team went above and beyond. She was wonderful at our venue walk through and worked with all of our vendors to make sure everyone had a game-day plan. She also created our wedding day timeline which worked beautifully and made it easy for everyone to know how things were going to go and where we needed to be. She even picked up our flowers for us from our florist when we had some logistical issues come up!
Finally, Jazmin was amazing on the day of our event. She made sure we stayed on schedule (I had multiple guests comment after the wedding how impressed they were that everything actually started on time!) and she helped shepherd us to where we needed to be. Everyone was able to just let go and enjoy the day because we all felt comfortable with her and knew that she would take care of everything!
Anyvent's reply:Thank you so much for the amazing review Chiara! It was such a pleasure getting to know you, Chris, and your family during the time leading up to your wedding day. I'm so happy that you felt comfortable enough to trust us with this huge responsibility and truly enjoy your celebration. We look forward to keeping in touch with you and Chris (and Pasha)! Wishing you the best!!!

My day was perfect thanks to Anyvent!
I wouldn't have guessed this before having my own wedding, but having a planner is the best thing I did! My venue required a planner (I like event planning and being in control so I would've done it myself otherwise), and after a thorough review of EVERYONE on their preferred vendors list I felt the most connected to Jazmin and her Anyvent team. Best decision ever! Jazmin was beyond personable and willing (excited, rather) to help with anything I needed. She answered my million questions promptly and with patience and confidence. I felt from the beginning that I was in the most capable hands. She and her team traveled a significant distance to join me at my walk-through and rehearsal dinner to ensure they completely understood my vision for the day. And the month before my wedding she handled every logistical detail with all of the vendors which was so needed as I scrambled to work out last minute DIY details on my end. Jazmin and her team asked questions I didn't even think of to make sure everything went over smoothly. And they were so adaptable the day-of that everything felt so perfect! I had literally zero worries on my day, which is the best gift you can get for your wedding. Looking back at it, I recognize all they did to make sure I had no responsibilities day of- keeping us on schedule, perfectly dimming the dance floor lights, re-charging my polaroid camera, adding candles where a table looked sparse, tipping the late night pizza guy, making sure I always had a drink in-hand and so many more small details. It all happened behind the scenes while I was living it up on the dance floor! Jazmin and her team were so delightful, showing genuine enthusiasm for one of the most exciting times in my life. They truly added joy to my wedding experience and I feel like I gained friends out of the Anyvent team! Thank you for all you did to make sure I'll look back on this day with heart eyes and a strong urge to do it all over again for the rest of my life!Sent on 11/21/2019

Hiring Anyvent is the BEST DECISION I made
Working with Jazmin is the absolute best decision I made, period, for my wedding. I cannot say enough how amazing, brilliant, dedicated, and kind Jazmin is. Every penny spent on hiring Jazmin as our wedding planner was 100% worth it.Sent on 12/06/2018
We did the partial package because I had some major details planned out but had no idea who to use for vendors or ANY idea on what to do for decor. I just made some random stuff with friends and asked her to help me set it up how she’d like. Well she absolutely killed it. My wedding venue looked beyond what I could have ever expected.
Not only is she brilliant at artistic design though, probably the most amazing thing about working with Jazmin is that she works harder than anyone I’ve ever seen and hits the nail on the head every time. If I needed anything, she would just tell me super calmly, I got it and not to worry one bit. If I had not worked with Jazmin before and on my wedding day, it would not have been half as amazing as it was.
If you’re considering hiring her, seriously do it!! Call me and I will tell you all of the ways it is worth it. Jazmin is so sweet and will execute your perfect vision on your special day :)
Anyvent's reply:Thank you so much Hannah! I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to get to celebrate your wedding with you and your family. You and Michael are such a kind, gracious, and fun couple and it was my honor to be part of this special moment in your lives. Thank you so much for trusting us with your wedding! :)

Look no further!
My husband and I are so grateful for Jazmin and her team! We were planning our wedding from out of state, and knew we were going to need a little extra help. Throughout our whole planning process she went above her duties to ensure we stayed on track and relatively stress-free. During the month of our wedding she was truly amazing! She took care of all of the little details and a tiny snafu or two and made our day run smoothly- I didn't have to think about anything except getting married and being with my friends and family. She is also just so organized, sweet, and personable- We highly recommend Jazmin and her team at Anyvent!Sent on 12/31/2018

Anyvent made our wedding day amazing!
My wife Jackie and I could not be happier with the way our wedding day went, and a huge part of that is thanks to Jazmin and her assistant, Saida. They took care of every little detail, both details that we had thought of and asked them to be in charge of, and details that we never would have thought to worry about. But let's start from the beginning!Sent on 12/31/2018
We hired Anvyvent to do our day-of coordination, but Jazmin invested WAY more time into our planning than just our wedding day. The month leading up to our wedding, she was in frequent contact with us, helping us nail down our wedding day-of schedule, making sure she had contact information for all of our vendors, and just answering any and all of our questions. We also had several stressful last minute changes in personnel with our caterer, and Jazmin was 1: very tolerant (and receptive!) of my panicky e-mails and phone calls, 2: helpful in coordinating conversations between us and the catering manager, and 3: ensuring that the dinner would run smoothly on the day of our wedding.
As for the wedding day itself, Jazmin was the perfect balance of helpful and invisible! That may sound odd, but it was really nice to know that things were taken care of without having to worry about keeping up with the schedule ourselves. The few times that she did check in with us were with issues that we would not have thought to deal with (or been able to deal with!). For example, she very discreetly informed us when we were running out of one type of wine after the cocktail hour, and she had Saida run out and grab more for us in plenty of time. At the end of the wedding, my wife and I left the reception and left all of the clean-up for our family and the venue managers to take care of. Jazmin and Saida stayed until the very last thing was cleaned up, helping our bridesmaids and family members pack up our centerpieces, salvage our gifts, and pack our vehicles (not to mention, in the rain!).
I know there are countless other details that Anyvent took care of for us that I'm forgetting, but these were the few things that stood out to us. The most important thing about Anyvent, I think, is that my wife and I did not worry at all on the day of our wedding about things running smoothly. Wedding planning is so stressful, and my wife and I did the majority of the planning and work ourselves (a lot of DIY projects!). So by the time the day came, we were a little stressed about letting go of the reins and just letting the day happen. Once that time actually came, though, Jazmin had calmed our nerves and ensured us that everything would run smoothly without us having to worry about it. And she was right! We would definitely recommend Jazmin and her Anyvent team to any of our friends planning to get married!
Anyvent's reply:Thank you so much for taking time out to review us Caitlin! It means the world to us to hear that we made the day fun and stress free for you and Jackie. It was such a pleasure getting to know you both and we couldn't be happier for you as you start your lives together. Your vows still have me tearing up when I think back to your big day. Thank you for choosing us to be part of such a special moment!!!

Anyvent was fantastic! I planned my wedding in Charlottesville, VA from Portland, OR.Sent on 10/28/2018
Once I hired Anyvent, I felt much more connected to my wedding planning and to my vendors.
Anyvent owner, Jazmin Portnow is extraordinary. She heard my vision, LISTENED, and made every detail beautiful. My wedding was seamless. Jazmin handled everything- from small disasters (an arbor lost in a storm and the replacement even more gorgeous), to helping my best friend figure out how to button my wedding dress, to darlingly displaying the cozy throws I threw at her at the last minute that I decided to provide for my guests as favors. "I'll make these cute", she said. She did!!
Anyvent saw my vision and helped me have the most gorgeous wedding ever.

Did we just become best friends?!
Jazmin is the MVP! I live in Los Angeles and was planning my wedding in Northern Virginia from across the country. I was nervous about not being around for the planning process but Jazmin eliminated all of my stress and concerns. I met Jazmin as a recommendation through the owners of my venue, Sylvanside Farm. She was super easy to talk to, she made herself available my 3 hour time difference and crazy work/travel schedule. Jazmin had great ideas for over coming challenges and was patient with my (sometimes crazy) demands. I always felt that Jazmin was on my team when working towards my goals and visions. She communicated professionally and openly with me and all of my vendors. Even with a few hiccups, I never felt as though it wasn't something that Jazmin couldn't talk through with me or help to come up with a solution. My wedding day went off without a hitch. I was able to enjoy my day completely. Everything was on time and beautiful. If there were any crises, I was completely unaware. I am super happy with how everything turned out and all of my guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to and I know that I owe a good part of that to Jazmin and her crew!Sent on 10/29/2018

You must pick Jazmin and her team to guide you through the craziness that is planning a wedding. Jazmin was there for any questions I had leading up to the wedding and helped my husband and I stay on a timeline. Even when a hurricane decided to stop by on our wedding day and we weren’t sure if we were going to be able to have the wedding..... yeah. Jazmin was there to help us brainstorm other options, jump into gear when we were able to continue and allowed Michael and I to enjoy the day. I can’t thank her enough.Sent on 10/30/2018
