Thank you for taking the time to check out A Fresh Event – we business owners put a ton of time into this stuff, so it makes our hearts happy when you actually read it.
My name is Jen and I’m the owner of this small, but quickly growing company. A Fresh Event was created because we felt that we could bring something different to how weddings are planned. At A Fresh Event, it’s not about us. Our “fresh” approach is personal and it’s all about you – our focus is on the people walking down the aisle and the loved ones standing beside them. This is a once-in-a-lifetime day and we treat it as such.
We love a gorgeous centerpiece just as much as the next person, but our mission is to help you to feel comfortable and confident in the wedding professionals you bring to your team, to act as a guide when making big budget decisions, to be your confidant during a time in your life that is both exciting and unfamiliar and to provide comfort and reassurance on your wedding day so you don’t miss a single moment of a day that goes by all too quickly. Oh, and don’t worry, you’ll have pretty centerpieces, too!
What do I do when I’m not planning weddings? Well, I’m madly in love with my husband, Jay, so I’m most likely with him. Actually, I bet right at this very moment I’m begging him to let us get a golden retriever and he’s probably saying some really nice version of “No” — (Eye roll). I love trying new restaurants, reading business + personal development books, crying while I watch any movie or TV show and having a gym membership but never actually going (I’m working on it, OK?).
Christine (bride) – “Thank you so much. I really can’t think of another professional I’ve hired for anything who has provided so much value. I know my parents feel the same way. Thank you doesn’t feel sufficient, but I hope you know how strongly I mean it!”
Leanna (bride) – “Jen is seriously one of the best people I’ve ever met in my life. My husband and I were unsure whether we needed a coordinator for our wedding as we began the planning process and looking back now we are SO LUCKY that we did and that we found Jen. She has such a great personality, makes everyone so calm, is so organized, and honestly, I want to be her best friend forever after everything she did for us. She made the months leading up to our wedding so stress-free and helped to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. Jen helped us to think of even the smallest little things that would have fallen through the cracks on the big day but really made all the difference. Jen is so awesome, I swear she can even control the weather and made it stop raining just long enough for me to get inside and not ruin my hair, makeup, or dress on our wedding day.”
Dan (groom) – “Jen was a consummate professional that handled our wedding coordination with poise and grace. My wife and I were incredibly happy that Jen was around to ensure our wedding went as smoothly as possible! She was easy to work with and did an excellent job communicating with us leading up to our big day.”
Sandy (mom of the bride) – “Jen was amazing in helping my daughter, her fiancee and I plan their wedding! She is organized, responsive and delightful to work with. She made sure we had monthly task lists and communicated with all our vendors to be sure everything was set. On the actual wedding day, she was fantastic at communicating timelines with all the people involved. We couldn’t have done it without her. The bride and groom, both sets of parents, the wedding party and all our guests had the best time due to her skills. We cannot thank her enough and know she would be an asset to any other family/couple planning a wedding.”
