While our wedding was relatively small (65) there were a lot of moving pieces given that we were getting married on Quadra island and not arriving until 24 hours before
We had some vendors who were at times challenging to get a hold of, and Jenna was able to reign them all in with no issues. We presented Jenna with a fairly long list of tasks with specific instructions and she executed them all without a problem (as far as we know!).
In the days leading up to the wedding, we peppered Jenna with changes and new tasks to the schedule she had already built. Jenna handled this wonderfully, reconfirming with our vendors and updating our timelines as requested. Not only that, Jenna would prompt us and ask the right questions (ones we didn't even think of) to help us ensure we were making all the right decisions.
Our wedding was no small task, with 250 guests and a ballroom flip under an hour and a half. Jenna worked with the hotel to handle all of this seamlessly. Jenna accompanied us to our final meeting with the venue, and it was priceless having her there - it was a relief (and impressive) to watch her manage all the final details. I basically had to sit there and not, while Jenna literally took all the stress off our shoulders so that we could actually enjoy those last few days!
Perhaps one of Jenna's strongest skills, the other being highly organized, was her personable and kind demeanor. She won over all of us, including my parents who continue to rave about Jenna to this day. Thank you Jenna!
It was so nice to be able to just relax and entertain our friends and out of town guests in the days leading up to the wedding, knowing that Jenna was on it, confirming with Vendors and creating a detailed itinerary. The day of the wedding, I could rest easy knowing she was setting up the ceremony and reception spaces perfectly and throughout the day she ensured everything ran smoothly.
Apparently our whole floral arch for the ceremony toppled over in the wind during set up and Jenna dealt with this without issue. I was none the wiser until the next day! Which is exactly what you want as the bride! I had enough nerves to deal with as is, I don't know what I would have done without Jenna! She was knowledgeable, professional and delivered - for a very reasonable rate!
I cannot say enough good things about Jenna. My husband and I hired her for full wedding coordination, and she delivered! I didn't know wedding planning could be a relaxing, fun experience, but it really was. Jenna was very respectful of our budget and worked hard to suggest quality vendors that were within our price range. She kept us on schedule. I never had to worry because I knew if I should be working on something, Jenna would tell me. My preferred method of communication was by email, and Jenna was very responsive to anything big or small. She even worked during her honeymoon!
I joke that Jenna is a mind-reader, and I'm still a little suspicious! She matched us with vendors that meshed with our personalities and could see our vision clearly. We ended up with our wedding dream team. Even my husband, who is very picky, went with the very first DJ Jenna suggested. She hit the nail on the head every time!
As for cost, she is worth every penny if for nothing but the peace of mind she provides. However, Jenna did save us a lot of money by scouting out vendors within our budget. She also had great suggestions when we were planning the menu and open bar to ensure we wouldn't go over budget. Her expertise in what is necessary and what isn't was so incredibly helpful.
On the wedding day, I was able to focus 100% on having fun and getting married. Our wedding was an absolute blast, and our guests are still talking about it. I think this is proof of Jenna's talent.
I will recommend Jenna to everyone I know! She's the best of the best!
The groom agrees & says "Revel Events was worth every penny."
Working with Jenna leading up to the wedding was Fab. She's super responsive and kept me on track with all planning details. On the wedding day, everything was great. No hick-ups, at least that I know of. Which is exactly how it should be! Jenna took care of everything - and even chased (discreetly) the flower girls/ring bearer when they set off in the wrong direction (ie, not down the aisle). As the wedding continued into party mode Jenna was still doing her thing, and even hung around until we ourselves were ready to go, which we were not expecting. Jenna had all our gifts collected and packed into our vehicle ready and waiting for us to leave. She then tucked us into the car, and sent us off for the night! This was amazing. She really was all over everything.
I would highly recommend Jenna. I know there are other big name planners in town, but the value Jenna provides is far superior. High quality, and high value.
