Jen was so professional, organized and full of resources and advice while planning my wedding. She made the planning process so much easier by her years of experience and expertise. The wedding day was seemless and not one detail forgotten about!Sent on 12/05/2018
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you so much, Lisa! We were so honored to be part of your special day- it was gorgeous and so were you!!

We love Jen. I personally did not think I needed a wedding day of planner, because I am super organized. But I was wrong. I clearly needed Jen. She is amazing, we had a 8 page timeline, which worked out great. Jen helped us through the planning if we had questions, then a couple weeks before the wedding we did the timeline. She was great in getting us all in line for the rehersal and actual wedding. We had my daughters reception at the Strathallan, and there is a lot of misc things to be brought in. Jen took care of them ALL. I did not have to do any of that, which allowed me to have a great time at my daughters wedding. I would NOT do a wedding without Jen again. Simply amazing Job Jen... I may come work for you in the future....Sent on 09/08/2018
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words! We loved being part of your families' big day! Hope to do it all again soon:)

Working with Jen was the absolute best decision we could have made for our wedding and I truly have no idea how we would have pulled it off without her help. She was thoughtful in her suggestions, very responsive, able to keep us organized, a great listener (through many bridal breakdowns!), able to put out numerous fires and truly got our vision which was very clear when we arrived for the ceremony and got to see the space. We can't say enough good things about her. If you have any questions if a wedding planner is worth it...Jen absolutely is.Sent on 09/13/2018
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you for the kind words, Rachael, and for choosing Events by Jen to be part of your special day! We loved working with you and Jeff and are so please it all worked out so well!! YAY!!!!
Michelle · Married on 07/21/2018
Jen's effectiveness can best be summarized by our DJ (who has been doing weddings for over 20 years) who said she was the best Coordinator he's ever worked with! She worked closely with him during the wedding to make sure everything flowed smoothly. Leading up to the wedding, Jen was very responsive and worked with us (long-distance) to get to know us, our style, and she ultimately helped pull together the perfect day.Sent on 01/03/2019
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you so much Michelle! I rally appreciate the kind words. You and Brian were a pleasure to work with and your big day was beautiful and lots of fun! I loved helping you make it such a personal, pretty and delicious event! xoxo

Shayna · Married on 09/09/2017
We hired Jen to be our wedding planner for the entire planning process and we are so glad we did! Jen was an absolute pleasure to work with and her advice as well as expertise was invaluable. She understood our vision and made sure every little detail corresponded with the overall look and feel we were going for- all while being mindful of our budget. She was easy to communicate with and responsive to our questions and concerns along the way. She knew when it was best to take the initiative in situations, which was greatly appreciated. She was a great resource for everything, from recommending the best vendors to bouncing our ideas off of. She was also very organized and on top of our deadlines which meant things didn't slip through the cracks. Lastly, what we really loved about Jen was her down to earth personality and warm heart. She has a positive "can do" attitude and it's clear she is passionate about what she does. I truly believe if it wasn't for Jen, our dream wedding would not have been possible- or have ran as smoothly as it did. We are so happy we chose Jen and we highly recommend her for your wedding!Sent on 12/10/2017
Events by Jen's reply:Oh Shayna! Thank you for this wonderful review! You were a pleasure to work with and I was so honored to be part of your big day! xoxo

It was a pleasure working Jen. She went above and beyond to make my daughters wedding as perfect as it was. She kept us on schedule every step of the way.

Anjali · Married on 08/27/2016
Throughout the planning process, everyone prepared me to just roll with the punches because something is bound to go wrong at every wedding. So I prepared myself; but it turned out I didn’t have to because my wedding was absolutely perfect and that was thanks to Jen! Although I was born and raised in Rochester, I currently live in Chicago and relied heavily on Jen’s vendor suggestions. In fact, Jen was able to get me a same day appointment with my florist, who booked up on my wedding date immediately after I met with her! Jen’s vendor management was phenomenal. Aside from introductory conversations with my florist, baker, photo booth, cigar roller and linen rental vendors, Jen communicated every change we had and created a detailed timeline that tracked everyone’s arrival and service. Jen provided décor and design suggestions as well, but never in an overbearing way. Jen has the absolute perfect personality to calm an anxious Bride. I really tried my control any “Bridezilla” tendencies but when they crept up, Jen always assured me that we were on track and helped me talk through any decisions I had to make. On the day of my wedding, Jen and Christina were amazing. They were available to help me personally with the small details like giving our marriage license to the Church and inserting my floral headpiece all while ensuring the room was picture-perfect, the timeline was adhered to and all of our guests were happy! Jen is a true professional, dependable and extremely talented. I cannot thank her enough for all of her time and effort!Sent on 09/10/2016
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you Anjali! We really appreciate you taking the time to review our services! So happy you loved everything about your big day:) We totally enjoyed working with you and Mike!! xoxo
Kaitlyn · Married on 07/30/2016
Hiring Jen was hands down the best decision we made when planning our wedding! We are a long distance couple from NYC who had a fusion Indian/Christian wedding with the ceremony at a vineyard and the reception at an industrial warehouse. Because of the fusion nature of the wedding, we had to hire two caterers and had what felt like a million different vendors. Jen handled everything professionally and the day went as smoothly as I could have possibly imagined. I am not exaggerating when I say that our wedding day could not have happened without Jen! Would highly recommend her to anyone.Sent on 08/24/2016
Events by Jen's reply:Oh Kaitlyn...thank you so much!!! We were thrilled that you chose us to be part of your big day:) Much love to you and Rajiv! xoxo

Events by Jen was the best investment for our wedding! Jen and her team took care of so many of the details so we were able to really have a worry free day! They are very professional, organized, flexible and very pleasant to work with! I highly recommend Events by Jen if you want to have total peace of mind for your event!Sent on 07/29/2016

jaime · Married on 09/12/2015
Where to begin! Jen did an amazing job with our wedding. As a couple that did not live in the area, Jen was always accommodating to us when we needed her. From the very beginning struggle of finding a venue.. to the record rain fall the day of our wedding, Jen was there taking care of everything. Her caring and professional personality made it so easy to work with her. She was constantly there with us- meeting with our vendors, taking care due dates, making us itineraries, and most importantly- keeping everyone calm! Jen is truly a professional and her passion shows in her work.Sent on 10/09/2015
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you so much Jaime! I loved working with you, Justin and your families. It was a gorgeous day (despite the rain:) and a pleasure to help plan and coordinate.
Margaret · Married on 08/28/2015
Where do I begin? I'm not sure that I can thank Jen enough. From the moment we met her, we were at ease. Her confident, gracious and energetic demeanor and great style matched our needs perfectly. We hired Jen to be the Day of Coordinator for my daughter's wedding, and I honestly do not know what we would have done without her! After several meetings with Jen reviewing our needs and concerns, Jen put together an extensive itinerary, reviewed our vision, met with our florist, fine tuned our limo schedule, and ensured that every single detail was taken care of. With her care and diligence, I was able to spend the entire day with my daughter (relaxing while getting ready) without so much of a question that everything would be implemented perfectly. And perfect it was! What a wonderful feeling to come to the church where she had all under control, and then be totally overwhelmed and happily surprised by how beautiful our venue was decorated, with such incredible care. I highly recommend Jen, and her assistant Christina! They were such a delight to work with!Sent on 09/02/2015
Teri · Married on 07/29/2015
I worked with Jen Stanton of Events by Jen for a large corporate function in the Rochester, NY area. We were hosting 200 sales professionals from the US, Canada and Latin America for a formal reception and dinner. I had a vision for what I wanted but didn't have the time or know-how to put the pieces together myself. I am so delighted that I picked Events by Jen to help orchestrate the planning and execution of the event...it was fantastic! Jen is a great listener and spent the time to understand what I wanted... she provided linen samples, flower suggestions and lighting. On the day of the event she worked tirelessly with a variety of vendors to bring everything together for an unforgettable evening. She was able to turn a rather plain ballroom into an elegant but dramatic space for our event. Thank you Jen!!!Sent on 08/11/2015
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words Teri! We love what we do, are so pleased that you are happy with our work. You and all involved were a real pleasure to work with!
Kathleen · Married on 06/27/2015
There are not enough characters in this little white box to adequately convey what a god send Jen was for our day. We used her day-of coordination services. She began working with me about a month before the wedding to contact vendors and set up a working schedule for the day. She even worked with us to schedule our buses to bring guests from area hotels to the wedding venue, which turned out to be much more challenging than we thought! Two weeks before the wedding, issues with our home were causing additional stress, but Jen was incredible and helped us with the last minute planning details. The week before our wedding the weather forecast turned to 100% chance of rain, and Jen and her assistant used their own time after our rehearsal dinner to research a location for our first look and bridal party pictures. I left all of my decorations for the ceremony and reception with her and she did a magnificent job making the room look beautiful - probably a better job than I would have done! Our bridal party commented on her kind and to-the-point demeanor, giving directions for us throughout the day without being too overbearing. I have repeated many times that the little extra money we spent for Jen was worth every single penny and more. I know that I was able to enjoy the day and the weeks leading up to our wedding so much more because I knew she would take care of everything. If you need a coordinator for the day of, or to plan your whole event, you cannot go wrong with Jen.Sent on 07/01/2015
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you so much Kathleen! We loved being a part of your and Alan's day. We appreciate the kind words and are so happy we met your every expectation and beyond. You, Alan and your families and friend were a true pleasure to work with!!!
Sarah · Married on 08/16/2014
Jen was so wonderful to work with! She helped us stay on track each step of the way and helped us anticipate decisions so that we had plenty of time to think about our options. Jen was always ready to offer suggestions or to let us bounce ideas off of her. Most importantly in that final week when all the decor was handed over to her she made us feel at ease that the wedding would come together as we imagined - and most importantly she created the reception of our dreams completely in line with our vision! Jen's day of coordination was essential to us - she kept everyone moving to where they needed to be and made sure every guest (and the two of us) got to relax and enjoy our wedding!!!Sent on 11/21/2014
Nicole · Married on 08/02/2014
I had Events by Jen (Jen was my planner) do month of planning for my wedding, since I was planning from out of town. Jen was very helpful in getting the last minute details together during what was a very busy month for me. During the month leading up to the wedding, she reached out to vendors to confirm timing and details on my behalf. She also put together a detailed itinerary for the day and distributed it to vendors, bridal party, and family to ensure that everyone was working off of the same time line. Day of she made sure everything went according to the timeline we had put together and handled any issues that arose during the day. She was also the main point of contact for the vendors. Having her there gave me peace of mind that I could relax and enjoy a day that I worked very hard to plan. She has very insightful knowledge of the wedding industry that was really helpful when negotiating contracts with vendors as well as planning the timeline for the day. Thanks Jen for all of your hard work!Sent on 08/20/2014
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you so much Nicole! You were a pleasure to work with :). We truly appreciate you choosing Events by Jen to be part of your special day.

Jennifer and her team were the very best!! My husband and I talk about our wedding and we always talk about how we couldn't have done it without her.

I could not have been able to have had the wedding I had if it wasn't for Jen! She is absolutely amazing. She had everything organized to a "T." Everything was phenomenal, and it is THANKS TO HER! It took any stress off of my shoulders so I was able to relax and enjoy this once in forever time of my life! She was able to make everything flawless. The whole year of planning was fantastic. We'd meet once a month and go over everything, and she was always available if I needed anything! She always had great advice and suggestions for us. I have already recommended her to many of my friends who are getting married!! Jen and Christina are fantastic! Thank you girls so much for make my wedding day amazing!!!Sent on 11/05/2013

Kellie · Married on 10/19/2013
I can't say enough positives about both Jen and Christina! Jen truly kept the year before my wedding organized and she made my wedding day run so incredibly smoothly. It was stress free, since I didn't have to worry about anything because I knew she had everything taken care of. She was always available for advice and was willing to meet whenever I needed. She's FANTASTIC at her job and you can tell she truly loves it. It was so great meeting with her while planning and having her there at my wedding. I'm happy to have her as a friend and I miss seeing her now!Sent on 11/30/2014
Katya · Married on 06/08/2013
Jennifer Stanton did an absolutely amazing job as our wedding coordinator. She coordinated the schedules of vendors who didn't always like to return calls, dealt with our often-confused caterer, and wrangled two very opposite families to make our day perfect. We can't imagine going through our day without Jen because for all of the duties that we know she performed, there must be at least a hundred other details she fixed that we'll never even realize. Events by Jen was fabulous.Sent on 12/06/2013
Events by Jen's reply:Thank you so much Katya! I really enjoyed wrangling in your families...you were all so much fun! It was a beautiful day :)
Sadie · Married on 06/01/2013

Elizabeth · Married on 07/07/2012
I would 100% recommend Jen for any event! She was so organized and kept everything running smoothly so that I was able to sit back and enjoy our wedding day knowing she was in charge.Sent on 08/06/2012
She was so helpful with any questions I had throughout the planning process and Jen thought of details along the way that never would have crossed my mind!
The night before the wedding the transportation vendor called informing us that one of the shuttle buses we were scheduled to use to transport guests to the ceremony had broken down. While I was enjoying my rehearsal dinner Jen was behind the scenes calling transportation vendors all around Rochester. By the time I even found out about the issue Jen had already found and booked a new shuttle for us. She truly saved the day! Knowing she was in charge and would take care of any issue that came up really let me sit back and just enjoy the wedding weekend!
I can't say enough great things about Jen. On top of being great at her job, Jen is fun and a pleasure to work with! I had hired Jen for the "month of coordination" for my wedding and
would definitely recommend that package. I think its an amazing value for the services you receive!
You will not regret hiring Jen for any event!
