Hello There!

Meet Jillian

    "Worth the investment and your trust."
    In each of these categories, Jillian and her team absolutely excelled. We brought Jillian on around July for a January wedding. After interviewing a couple of planners, Jillian stood out for being organized, polite, competent, experienced, and completely professional. She fit in well, as my mother and I (the bride) had already selected most of the major vendors and details. Jillian was able to add value immediately by sharing planning software and coordinating with bride, groom, bride's mother, and all venue personnel. She attended our final meetings with the caterer/reception supervisor and conducted either calls or Skype-meetings with our ceremony officials, band people, photographer and videographer, and florist. She even helped us select our linens and offered ceremony order-of-events suggests. I never felt that I was "on the clock" with Jillian and she was extremely responsive to emails and questions. Let's talk about the weeks leading up to the wedding and the day-of. Jillian really cranked

    "excels in all of the things you had no idea you even needed in a wedding planner."
    Do you need a wedding planner? Yes. Do you need Jillian and OneTouch Events as your wedding planner? Yes! She exceeds expectations of all the things you want in a wedding planner. She is timely, organized, friendly and professional. She has vision, listens, works hard and she gets you good deals. She also excels in all of the things you had no idea you even needed in a wedding planner. Jill is funny! Seriously, she is hilarious. She would have us cracking up on our conference calls. Jill makes you feel like you are not crazy. I especially appreciated this. There were so many things that we as a couple just did not want to do that more traditional weddings did and there were so many things that many people considered to be, well let’s say “unique.” Jill made it all work. Jill is not pushy with her couples. If you need direction she will lead

    "...you made our special day even more special with you great service."
    I would like to say that me and my wife hired OneTouch Events for our wedding as a way to someone coordinate our wedding on the day of. I didn't know what to expect from Jillian, as I was away out of the country and my wife was planning this with her. I am the planner in our relationship, so a little worried at first. I must say Jillian was hitting on all cylinders and went above and beyond my expectation which are very high I must add because I am a stickler for detail, and she is the same. My wife and I was joking about how much Jillian gave us and we just hired her for just one day service. We were thinking just imagine if we had hired her for the entire wedding planning. In short she is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks a lot Jillian, you made our

    "She's definitely the best in the business!"
    I can't say enough positive things about Jillian! She made everything run so smoothly and was on top of every detail that you don't think of when you're planning a wedding. She knew how I was feeling and was able to calm my nerves, wrangle my frustrations, and share in our excitement. It was like working with a friend. She's definitely the best in the business!

    "Thank you for being such a guiding light"
    Thank you for being such a guiding light for me in planning my first 3-day business conference, from managing the venue negotiations, vendor relationships and banquet orders down to the beautiful surprise details of our linens, florals, signage and more. Everything turned out so much better than I ever could have envisioned on my own. I remember telling you that I wanted my training event to be like a wedding, in that everyone who left that room on the last day would be completely in love with my brand. And I can happily say that we achieved that! It has been a honor working with you and I hope that we can continue our partnership for all of our future Happy Black Woman events.

    "It was such a relief to have her taking care of things!"
    I recommend Jillian and OneTouch Events without reservation. Jillian is amazing. From our first contact after my daughter collapsed in tears, completely overwhelmed to our final correspondence Jillian unobtrusively managed myriad details and kept us on track and on schedule. As a frantic mother of the bride, I contacted 4 Atlanta-area planners after 5pm on a Friday, 3 through web forms and a call to Jillian. She left voicemail at 7 that night and called the next morning. After only a few minutes I knew she'd be perfect. She actively listened and asked the right questions so she understood our needs. Frankly I was shocked when she qud her flat fee given what I felt was a very long list of tasks. She assured me that she understood what we needed and qud a fair price; afterwards I asked if she'd had to do more than her fee comfortably covered but she told me it was

    "My event was everything and more than I expected."
    Words can not express how pleased I was with the services of OneTouch Events. Jillian served as the event planner for my milestone birthday. She helped me orchestrate the event from start to finish. I even added another event on to our original agreement. If you want someone who is through, available, open, honest and gives excellent feedback Jillian is the one! I interviewed several planners and she stood above the others. I consider myself to be somewhat particular and sometimes a little too hands on. This can be difficult for some event planners, but Jillian was able to work with me. My event was everything and more than I expected. I received a text the next day inquiring about my event planner. I would highly recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

    "It was the best decision we made throughout the whole process..."
    We hired Jillian as our day-of-coordinator about two months before our wedding. It was the best decision we made throughout the whole process -- right from the start, she asked us good questions that helped us with our planning, connected us with our remaining vendors, and created invaluable timelines and helped keep us on track. During the big day, she kept us on time and made sure things were running smoothly. As far as we knew, everything went perfectly and it was such a great comfort to know that Jillian was there for us if we had any problems. I would highly, highly recommend hiring her, she is warm, friendly, and excellent at her job!!!

    "I don't think the night could have gone any better!"
    Good Morning Jillian,The last of the house guests left this morning. So now I can take a breath to tell you happy and thrilled I am with the way things turned out. I don't think the night could have gone any better! The flowers and linens where exactly what I wanted! The venue was just perfect!! I was so happy with our turnout of guests and I truly believe that each had a good time. I am still on cloud 9 about it all. Thanks for you help in this process of many moving parts!

    "My only regret is that we didn't hire her earlier in the process..."
    We hired Jillian from OneTouch Events two months before our wedding to be our "day of" coordinator.  It was a great decision.  Jillian was fantastic and helped greatly in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and on the big day!  Throughout, she was professional, attentive, and a pleasure to work with.  The weeks leading up to a wedding are busy, and having Jillian to handle a bunch of the details was really helpful and reassuring!   Jillian created two detailed timelines for the wedding weekend--one that she provided to the vendors, and one that she emailed to the bridal party.  This was great in terms of letting everyone know where to be and when--there were a lot of moving parts and she kept everything organized. In the weeks before the wedding, Jillian contacted all of the vendors and venues to confirm details.  She also put together the out of town guest bags (which included snacks, drinks,

    "We didn't have to worry about a single thing that day."
    My husband and I were married on October 25, 2013. I credit OneTouch Events with help making our wedding day vision a reality. Jillian, the company's founder, can best be described as a knowledgeable, prompt, professional with an outstanding personality. From the planning stage to the day of our wedding, Jillian was there to make sure everything ran smoothly. From day one of the planning process Jillian was by my side every step of the way. She was my life line. We met in person and constantly emailed back and forth to touch bases during the process. Jillian is resourceful and organized. She keeps you on schedule and eliminates unnecessary stress factors. We didn't have to worry about a single thing that day. All we had to do was show up and get married. This is exactly what we wanted. With very little instruction she made our vision come to life. I felt so at ease,

    "...the weekend turned out exactly how I envisioned."
    Jillian was instrumental in bringing my vision for my 40th birthday weekend to life. I knew after the first phone call that I wanted to work with her. Being a Type A personality and wanting to be very hands on, I was very comfortable letting her take the reins. I needed a caterer for two events for the weekend and had it not been for Jillian's suggestions and contacts, we would've been eating cold cuts. The food was a huge success at both events. I had been planning this weekend for nearly 8 months and I could not find one thing that went wrong. We discussed that sometimes things do not go as planned, but the weekend turned out exactly how I envisioned and my family and friends are still praising how organized and smoothly everything went. Jillian is so delightful, easy to work with and while she's keeps a smile at all times, cracks the

    "Our wedding was perfect, thanks to Jillian's wonderful coordination and planning!"
    Hiring Jillian was by far the BEST decision we made throughout the wedding planning. She was super-organized, professional, and very attentive. We first hired her only to setup, but then engaged her for the full same-day consultation a few months later, which is what we should have done from the beginning. She was easy to get in touch with through email and phone during the planning process, and she listened to what we wanted and made it happen! Before hiring One Touch Events we were worried about having everything go off without any complications, since the time for setup and breakdown was so tight. Jillian had everything set up with time to spare! She even went back to my house before the wedding to get my bridal bouquet once we realized my bridesmaids had left it. She came prepared with a toolbox full of every possible thing we could have needed, from Q-tips to gum and

    "...OneTouch Events made our wedding one we'll always cherish"
    Anyone who has survived a wedding knows how chaotic things get during battle, I mean the ceremony and reception. Well, OneTouch Events not only kept their composure to make sure things ran smoothly but Jillian, the owner, did something I will never forget. My poor wife tried as much as she could to get the reception ballroom decorated the night before the wedding but simply could not finish. At oh dark thirty she left in tears with only Jillian to finish. Jillian and staff not only finished but the reception decor was one of highlights of our wedding! They may not sleep much but OneTouch delivered. Exceptional service isn't a checklist of items. It's in actions. It's in how you go above and beyond. It's how OneTouch Events made our wedding one we'll always cherish.
