Jessica is an incredible event planner. She helped to seamlessly plan both my bridal shower and 450+ person wedding (both of which took place in NYC). The huge success of the events can all be attributed to her tremendous attention to detail and logistics, ingenuity, and professionalism. She is hardworking, and does everything to make her clients happy. Most importantly, she is very warm and friendly, and a pleasure to work with. She brings an elegant and creative touch to any event she helps to plan, and I highly highly recommend her.

Hiring Jessica Jordan Events for our 2018 Manhattan wedding was both the easiest and best decision we made. From our first meeting, we knew that Jessica was going to be the game changer for us in helping to achieve the non-conventional wedding of our dreams. She was kind, honest and knowledgeable beyond belief. Jessica was able to help us turn ideas we didn’t think would be possible, into realities our guests still rave about to this day.

Jessica was incredibly patient with us as we struggled to decide between two fantastic wedding bands. She arranged several opportunities for us to see each of the bands multiple times, including having us as her guests at an industry event so that we felt completely comfortable with our decision. Jessica’s dedication to making sure we were happy and confident with every wedding related detail, made planning this special event stress-free and fun.

When inevitable problems did arise, Jessica handled them efficiently and with poise. Her calm demeanor, thoughtfulness and positivity helped us to relax and enjoy our big day! People seem surprised when we tell them that we actually got to eat at our own wedding, but because of Jessica, we did! We were able to enjoy every moment of our special day without ever having to worry about logistics.

Jessica’s expertise, guidance and sincerity made her the absolute perfect person to help us plan and execute the most important day in our lives. We look forward to working with Jessica again in the future and are proud to call her a friend!

Jessica Jordan is a miracle worker. When we started planning our wedding, we didn’t expect to use a planner. In retrospect, we would have been completely lost without Jessica’s super-human help. Over the course of planning our 400-person wedding (during an eight-month period), Jessica became our confidante and friend. We could throw any problem her way (last-minute cancellations, strange requests from guests, vendor contract issues) and trust her to handle it with grace, timeliness, and proper etiquette.

Our wedding was not logistically easy (e.g., separate ceremony and reception venues, guests staying at a myriad of hotels throughout NYC, disparate rehearsal dinner and post-wedding brunch locations), but Jessica never once complained or described any request as out of the scope of her contract, though many requests were. Moreover, Jessica included every wedding event in her contract (including the wedding rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and brunch), whereas other planners whom we interviewed would not. Consequently, we felt that we received incredible value for our money. We simply would not have gotten the same level of energy and responsiveness from other planners. Jessica is highly motivated, and as a result, she operates with unparalleled enthusiasm, poise, and energy.

Every interaction with Jessica was positive, solutions-oriented, and proactive. We could throw any issue her way and know that it would be handled efficiently and efficaciously. We were thrilled with our wedding. It was a magical night that we will never forget, and we owe Jessica BIG TIME for making it so special and for making the planning process more than tolerable–it was actually fun. Jessica will remain a friend, and we will absolutely hire her for future happy occasions. We would be glad to speak with anyone considering Jessica Jordan Events!

Richards Previews 11Hiring Jessica Jordan Events was the BEST decision I made in my wedding planning process. I handed her a blank slate of a venue in the middle of nowhere Connecticut and she turned it into the most magical wedding venue. I trusted her expert opinion and she went above and beyond what a wedding planner should have to do. She had a brilliant idea to use a hutch as our escort card “table”-she did all the work to find the perfect one, drove to NJ to pick it up and even brought it to the venue on the day of…and it was beautiful. She arranged every tiny aspect of not just the wedding, but of the whole weekend. We could not have done it without her or her amazing team she brought with her on the day of the wedding. I cannot thank Jessica enough for making the wedding of my dreams a reality!!

J and M2After our first conversation with Jessica of Jessica Jordan Events, we knew that she and her team were perfect for the job.  While Jessica is an extremely accomplished planner with a wealth of experience in the field, she is very approachable and down to earth, making the month before our wedding easy and stress-free. She made herself fully available, any e-mail or communication we sent to her was always answered in a timely and professional fashion.  No matter what kind of question or potential problem we threw her way, she always had a creative answer and comprehensive reply.  She also had some great suggestions for the wedding, things that we would have never have thought of on our own as we NEVER planned a wedding before.  She made sure every detail was addressed and every possible scenario was thought of beforehand.  She created a detailed and thorough timeline and in just a few days she connected with all of our vendors seamlessly.

When came time for the wedding, Jessica was so calm and all smiles while staying on top of the timeline.  We felt completely comfortable with Jessica in the lead.  I was so relaxed that I did not even wear a watch to keep track of time!  She made it so easy to just enjoy the day.  I had told Jessica early on that one of my biggest concerns were my elderly parents and to make sure they were taken care of – at the end of the wedding my parents told me that they were so thankful to Jessica and her team for taking extra care of them – that meant so much to me and my husband. We HIGHLY recommend Jessica Jordan and her team for your wedding.  They will go above and beyond and provide the most professional and high quality service.  Jessica is extremely passionate about what she does and she really is just the best.  We can’t thank her enough for an amazing experience!

LJformals-109Working with Jessica Jordan for the planning of our wedding was an absolute delight, and she truly made it the best it could be! From the moment we met, we immediately connected, and she was amazing – beyond courteous, thoughtful and helpful. Jessica constantly went above and beyond what was expected to ensure that everything was just perfect. One example: our wedding was in a hotel, and Jessica even took over the responsibility for reservations for the guest room block, just to make sure there were no mistakes and to see that everyone was taken care of! Jessica was also always responsive virtually immediately – even on weekends and while traveling, never allowing us to feel like she was not focused on our event. Even though she works on multiple events, we always felt that we were her only clients.

When it came to the actual planning of the ceremony and reception, Jessica was full of terrific ideas and suggestions, and also extremely accommodating for anything and everything we asked about. Jessica also recommended the best florist and DJ for us, and we loved and used both of them!
We can’t say enough wonderful things about Jessica, her fantastic personality and her unbelievable attention to detail. We will definitely come to Jessica for every future event we have!
