“Jenna’s services were invaluable! What we found most valuable was she knew what she was doing. We did not have to worry about a thing... she already had it covered. Also, Jenna thought of things that we never would have thought about. That was very helpful. We had one of our wedding guests get just a little “over-intoxicated.” Jenna handled the situation with respect, promptness, and a sense of humor. We appreciate that more than she knows. Jenna is on it! Our families and wedding party were very impressed with her timeline. She took my personal timeline for the day and made it work for EVERYone. That helped so much. Also, she carries a bag with about everything you could ever possibly need the day of a wedding. That was a tremendous help! She made sure that everything important from the day got back to me without me even knowing until afterwards. I appreciated Jenna checking in when necessary, but not overwhelming me. It was the perfect balance. She is extremely professional but also personable...that is so very important. I already have recommended her services!”
Jenna was worth her weight in gold! We can’t recommend her enough (there should be more than 5 stars). Though we only needed a day-of coordinator, I am confident that she’d do an amazing job planning a wedding from start-to-finish if that’s your style! We hired Jenna as a day-of coordinator for our outdoor May wedding that we planned from out of state. Of course, the “day-of” title is a little deceiving, as we actually started corresponding over e-mail a couple weeks before the wedding. We first met her in person at our rehearsal the day before, and were able to give her all of our décor and last minute instructions then, so I literally had NOTHING to worry about on our wedding day! Jenna rolled with our less-traditional schedule (pre-ceremony cocktail hour!) and eliminated my need to worry about the time or what we should be doing at any point. She also made all my wedding visions a reality by setting up all the décor for our ceremony and reception - not only did this save me from stressing about this, but it somehow looked exactly how I imagined, except even better than it would have if I’d done it myself! She also had tips and tricks (and thumbtacks!) to compete with the wind, which I completely forgot to take into consideration. I also felt like we had a personal assistant all night — Jenna was always right there to get us anything or handle anything we needed and made sure that none of our important mementos were misplaced. Jenna was so professional, friendly, and organized — and while my husband and I are also pretty Type A, we didn’t butt heads at all - even when my husband decided to run the rehearsal himself ;) We got a ton of compliments from our venue staff, vendors, and even guests on how fantastic she was and how lucky we were to have found her — and we completely agree.
Jenna is very professional, polite, and courteous! We enjoyed Jenna taking control of setting up and tearing down the reception venue. We were also thankful that she could act as a middle man between us and the reception venue, caterer, and photographer. It took the stress away from us having to worry about little things so we could focus on each other. Jenna went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met! She even followed us when we were taking pictures and kept us refreshed. She made sure we had water and even dabbed sweaty foreheads. Jenna was a hawk looking for unruly guests or some that had a little too much to drink, and even took the initiative to notify the bartender. We honestly could not imagine handling the wedding without Jenna. So much more work goes into the ceremony and reception than people think. Since she could float between us and the event staff and caterers, we were really able to enjoy ourselves and our day.
“Erik and I, although we’re Chicagoans for several years now, always wanted our wedding to be inspired by the lakeside town I grew up in just outside of Michigan. We had been hunting for a day-of coordinator for months - but the Chicago prices were astronomical and none of them seemed familiar with the SW Michigan area. Jenna’s profile magically appeared before my eyes - I emailed her immediately and she phoned me within minutes. At her pricing I was also able to afford her as a 6-week coordinator too. I had done about 90% of the planning on my own - but also decided to complete my NP degree, get a puppy, and renovate our home the same summer as the wedding. Jenna knew this and continued to check in with me throughout the wedding planning. She was detailed, kind, and had a sense of humor. One of my favorite memories of Jenna was that the humidity had taken it’s toll on my bridal gown - I was losing my bridal grace from sweating & dancing and she helped me quickly get out of my gown (I think using a butter knife for all the buttons!) and we giggled the whole time. I can’t express my gratitude enough, too, for all of the “little details” they swear you’ll forget (she made sure I ate, she carried extra pins, she made sure my darling little nephews were happy). We are thrilled to have hired Jenna for our wedding day - we’d certainly hire her if she was interested in planning puppy parties or baby parties :)”
”Jenna is fabulous- hire her! Jenna is very friendly, upbeat, organized and talented. She was our day-of-coordinator. After she patiently took the time to listen to all of my expectations, I felt absolutely at ease knowing she had it covered. The day was everything we dreamed of and more! It was wonderful having Jenna there to make sure everything got done on the day of so we could relax and enjoy our busy morning.”
Our names are Tom and Mallory and we are writing to attest to the work ethic and professionalism of Jenna Blue. Recently, we celebrated one of the happiest days of our lives when we joined hands in marriage. Eventually, the time came to make one of the most important decisions in the wedding planning process: choosing a wedding planner. Jenna was referred to us by a close friend and came highly recommended. Throughout the entire planning process, Jenna was reliable, responsive, and an overall joy to work with. Jenna’s input and experience were an invaluable resource during wedding day preparations and execution. She happily met with us multiple times to discuss important details of our wedding day experience, and was considerate and flexible with respect to meeting times. In addition to her professional expertise, she provided us with helpful planning resources to give us a better understanding of the timeline and overall flow of our day. With all that said, Jenna’s services are very reasonably priced and present an incredible value for anyone looking to create their perfect wedding day celebration. On the day of the wedding, both my wife and I were provided personalized itineraries that clearly set forth the plan for the day. While we were encouraged to provide active feedback regarding our comfort level and expectations for the day, Jenna’s professional instincts took over and provided us with the most enjoyable experience possible. She was the primary coordinator with respect to all phases of our celebration including group pictures, introductions, first dance, amongst many other things. Probably most importantly, she ensured that our wedding day experience was stress-free by personally attending to any unexpected obstacles that arose throughout the day. Because of Jenna, our day went off without a hitch. Overall, Jenna was considerate, flexible, and professional throughout the entire wedding planning process. We could not be happier with her services and have already recommended her to others beginning the wedding planning journey.
