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!

Hiring 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!!

After 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!

Working 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!

We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Jessica!

We highly recommend Jessica Jordan as a wedding planner extraordinaire. She is simply a superstar. Thanks to her organizational skills, savvy attention to detail, and ability to handle anything and everything, our wedding day exceeded our expectations!
Our friends still comment that our wedding was ‘the single greatest wedding they have ever attended.’ And, we attribute much of that credit to Jessica.
Jessica planned our 2013 Boston wedding and she single-handily made it an event that all of our friends and family still talk about! We chose her based on the level and quality of service she provides. Working with Jessica to plan our wedding and after-party was an absolutely seamless process. Both my husband and I work full time and are extremely detail oriented with very high expectations. As clients, I’m sure that we were sometimes difficult to manage. Jessica is extremely responsive, thorough, efficient, and never made us feel like a burden. Her ability to juggle many balls in the air and stick to the project timeline was quite impressive, especially given her extensive client base.
What’s most impressive was her ability to make us feel as though our event most important. We never doubted her ability to respond in a timely manner and always trusted that she would provide candid feedback on details, which were well outside of our area of expertise. She raised issues and/or points that we would have never considered. In addition to her professionalism and expert knowledge of the industry, we relied heavily on Jessica’s creative direction to transform the venue space into the wedding of our dreams. What she designed was beyond anything we could have ever imaged. Friends and family still remember the amazing raw bar, signature cocktail, perfectly prepared food, band, custom dance floor, and late-night party. But most of all, they talk about how every detail was taken care of and that they didn’t have to worry about transportation, accommodations, directions, etc. That’s all thanks to Jessica’s “event magic”. She’s amazing and we wouldn’t think twice about using her in the future.
Having hosted not one wedding, but two, I can confidently say that there is no one I would recommend more for the planning of event than Jessica Jordan. After getting engaged, my future husband, a captain in the army, received word that he would be deploying to Afghanistan. As such, we decided to plan a small wedding with immediate family and then renew our vows and host a larger reception once he returned. Jessica proved to be an invaluable resource for both events.
Jessica was a support from our first meeting. She gave me confidence to follow-through with my less-than-traditional idea of “two weddings” and helped me design and implement the intentions of both. For our wedding on November 5th, 2011, attended only by our parents and siblings, Jessica planned a beautiful sit down dinner that ensured that this event was everything it needed to be: intimate, elegant, and traditional. During the year Ben was away, Jessica continued to offer her support and expertise for the planning of our renewal ceremony, scheduled for the following year on New Year’s Eve. She made herself available to answer questions- ranging my detail oriented inquiries to my mother’s larger scale concerns. She offered creative suggestions for décor and lighting that offered the glamour and fun fit a New Year’s Eve party. She offered a large network of trusted vendors including our selected DJ, florist, and photographer, who we loved so much. Jessica remained organized and put my mind at ease, creating timelines and ensuring that everything went exactly as planned on the day of the event. Most importantly, she adjusted to any situation as needed, such as trimming the tulle on my gown when it was too long and switching the program last minute to better accommodate our dance.
Jessica truly proved to be more than a wedding planner to me. She went above and beyond and often served as a “sit-in” for my partner, who was thousands of miles away. Endlessly understanding of this fact, she joined me on my chef’s tasting, emailed me to check-in, offered trusted opinions, and made every effort to infuse my wedding planning with the things I worried I would not be able to experience: happiness, excitement, and joy.
Jessica executed my husband’s and my dream wedding. The consummate professional, Jessica worked round the clock to make sure everything went smoothly. In addition to being a thoughtful and fun person to collaborate with, Jessica brings a great deal of experience and knowledge to the event planning process. No detail is too small and no question goes unanswered when you are planning an event under her guidance. She works well with vendors and makes helpful, informed recommendations. She knows how to maneuver some of the more difficult aspects of event planning like issues with vendors or guests. My husband and I trusted her completely to make the appropriate judgment calls to execute our vision for our wedding. One thing that really stuck with me about Jessica was that ahead of time, she told my parents, my husband and me that we would be guests at the wedding and should not have to worry about a thing on the day. She truly had everything under control and allowed us to enjoy the day. She coordinated all the staff and vendors seamlessly to orchestrate the perfect event. I gladly would plan another event with her.
From the first day we met Jessica, during the 2011 hurricane, she showed that she would go above and beyond for her clients. She weathered the storm on foot to meet with me and my family.
For the entire following year, Jessica worked with us to plan every aspect of our wedding weekend. She was always incredibly responsive to our questions and requests and always responded to e-mails and phone calls immediately. Jessica always made us feel as if ours was the only wedding that she was handling all year!
Her attention to every detail and her follow through resulted in everything running like clockwork. We received numerous compliments about how well thought out the schedule was for the reception, which allowed us to maximize the band’s playing time, resulting in lots of dancing all night! On behalf of my entire family, I want to thank Jessica for making the entire wedding weekend better than we could have imagined!
