Jennifer at Five Grain Events was our “day-of” wedding coordinator, but Jennifer started helping me and my family more than 2 months prior to the wedding date! Having a day of coordinator was something I really wanted, not only for myself but really for my parents to enjoy the entire day. When I expressed this to Jennifer in our initial Skype session, I could tell she not only completely understood this desire of mine but also went through all of the littlest details that she would take off of our plate to ensure this would happen. From that moment, I knew I had to work with Jennifer and she definitely lived up to everything she said during our initial chat!! As the bride and first to get married in my family, I can’t express enough gratitude my family has thanks to Jennifer’s amazing work and attention to every detail. Not only did she keep me on track with all of the planning beginning about 2 months prior to the wedding date, but she also made me feel extremely confident that I was not forgetting anything major or minor for the special day. She asked me questions at our initial meeting that I had not even thought about yet, and when I mentioned other details it was like she already was in my head and knew how I wanted things set up. Jennifer also made me feel like I was the only client she was attending to, and thanks to Jennifer and her assistant, my new husband, me and my parents who were hosting our wedding were able to enjoy the entire day and night without a single worry. We were all impressed with how professional and organized she was after our initial meeting. Especially having a Catholic ceremony, Jennifer knew what to expect from the church and asked me questions I didn’t even know about regarding the church which was very helpful to look into before the wedding and rehearsal got closer. She always responded to questions and emails extremely quickly, and even accommodated my request for our initial meeting to be the Saturday before Easter because my schedule was so packed. The owner, Joan, is also wonderful with alerting you of upcoming payments so you are never left trying to remember different dates and she also worked directly with my parents to help ease the process and make it more efficient. My wedding day was absolutely perfect from start to finish and if there were any issues along the way, I still don’t know about them thanks to Jennifer. I definitely would have felt much more overwhelmed and my parents would have been much more stressed had she not been involved in the rehearsal and wedding day, and I would recommend Five Grain and Jennifer specifically to any bride! Anyone who is given the opportunity to work with Jennifer is very lucky and will not be disappointed in how their special day turns out!
