Kind Words

Wedding planning is truly Jodie’s calling – she is superb! I was totally overwhelmed with everything that goes into planning a wedding and totally out of my element. I was so lucky to have Jodie by my side the whole time, she thought of every single detail for me, was incredibly organized and followed up with me and all of the vendors to make sure we didn’t miss a beat. She was so on point and in turn so was our wedding!! I couldn’t be any more grateful for her assistance in the process – I couldn’t have done it without her. Very highly recommend!! – Laura & Brian 

We were so impressed and so relieved by the exceptional service Jodie provided as we planned my daughter’s wedding in late October. As the details started to escalate and frankly the logistics became overwhelming, Jodie stepped right in and took over the final plans and took the stress off us. She is calm, polite, and well spoken and that really helps her achieve the brides vision both with the family, and with vendors and caterers. Last minute changes don’t fluster her, she handles them with grace and good humor. The job gets done. We couldn’t be happier with her advice, direction, and the coordination and setup she did for us….she was 8 months pregnant and was bustling dresses and coordinating the floor. Her eyes were everywhere! We wish her all the best with her new little one and much well-deserved success with her business! Mother of the Bride 

When we first got in touch with Jodie to inquire about her day-of coordination services, we had no idea just how much she could help us or that she would be responsible for our wedding day running as smoothly as it did. Jodie’s professionalism, responsiveness, creativity, and attention to detail made her a joy to work with and completely put us at ease as the wedding approached. Jodie understood our vision for our wedding from our first meeting and made sure that every part of our day lived up to what we wanted. She brought to our attention ideas and alternatives that we would not have thought of ourselves and that improved our day-of timeline immensely. Jodie proactively liaised with all of our vendors, ensuring that everyone was on the same page the day of the wedding. We have said again and again how happy we are that Jodie was our day-of coordinator and we would recommend her to anyone getting married in the area. Working with Jodie is an absolute pleasure!! – Elizabeth + Tom 

Having Jodie as my day-of wedding coordinator was one of the best decisions I made throughout the wedding planning process! Jodie was an absolute pleasure to have by my side as my “go-to woman” the months leading up to my wedding day. She helped plan, prepare, and organize every small detail of the day including a specific timeline, ceremony and reception decor, and vendor confirmations. She was proactive, professional, organized, and quick to respond to any questions I had. Jodie continued to stay patient with me even when I was still making last minute changes the night before my wedding! On the day of my wedding, Jodie was right by my side helping me slide my heels on and off, held my long train while I walked, and even helped bustle my dress! She also guided my husband and his groomsmen before the ceremony and let them know exactly what they needed to do and where they needed to be. Throughout the reception, she made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. Jodie, THANK YOU for all of your help in making our wedding day picture perfect. You truly took care of every small detail that I never would have thought of! Thanks to you, we were able to fully enjoy our wedding day without a worry in the world! – Emily & Dominic

When my husband and I began planning our wedding we never imagined working with a wedding planner. We are both professional project managers and thought, how hard could this be? Little did we know, the decision to work with Jodie was by far the BEST decision we made throughout the planning process. Jodie used her years of professional event planning and personal experience with her own wedding to ease the process for us and bring a new perspective to the decisions we had to make. Jodie was incredibly helpful working and negotiating with all of our vendors. She thought of things that we never would have thought to ask ourselves and always had our best interest at heart. The week of our wedding there was a major snow storm that brought on about a foot of snow. Our ceremony was to be in a tent with clear walls outside on a farm field. Jodie manned the entire tent rental installation as if it was her own tent, her own farm, and her own wedding. Extremely PROACTIVE! She worked with Parkins Tent Rentals and our venue, Lauxmont Farms, to have all snow removed so the ground could be ready for the tent installation and to make sure our guests would not be trekking through mud. There was no need to worry about the weather with Jodie on our team. Jodie’s attention to detail, organizational skills, and thoroughness greatly exceeded our expectations. Our wedding was a destination with many DIY elements and moving parts. Everything was a la carte. We had over thirteen vendors that required coordination the day of our wedding. Prior to our wedding day, Jodie completely wrapped herself around the timeline, vendor roles, and our expectations to make our vision a reality. There was not one moment that prevented us from enjoying every minute of our special day with Jodie on board. Our dreams came true and we just cannot imagine our special day being as smooth and painless as it was without Jodie on our team. – Tara & Dave 

From Our Friends

Jodie was a wonderful planner to work with. As a wedding-vendor, I look to planners to align schedules for a smooth-sailing day. Jodie was incredibly responsive, organized, and worked with all of us for a fabulous wedding-day. Our bride had ample time to relax and enjoy herself on such an important day. I highly recommend Jodie and her talent.
