We Create. You Celebrate,


Are you adventurous, creative, and ready to have a blast planning a once-in-a-lifetime event? Can you put aside the boring wedding rules and expectations?

If so, then I'm here and ready to help you unleash your inner wedding planning rebel to plan something that's just a little (or a lot) unconventional. ✨

about AFE

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. It’s a day that you’ll remember forever. That’s why I take the time to sit with you and truly listen to the ideas that you have to host the most epic celebration ever. From there, I take those ideas and elevate them to create an alternative reality.

The one thing we need more of in our lives, especially now, is magic. Let’s make your wedding pure magic! A Fresh Event is all about people and believes that love is love, and we invite all couples to join our family (unless you're an a**hole, then kindly move along).

MeET Jen


Full-service planning and event management (and a hell of a good time!) are all that is offered here - at the ready to help you craft a celebration that will blow everyone away. All you have to do is show up and have the time of your life. Making all your wedding dreams come true.
