If you’re not into long emotional posts, just read this part: If you want your wedding to be beautiful and go off without a solitary hitch, book Jillian and OneTouch Events. Now, let’s talk specifics. From our first meeting, I knew she was the one. She showed up with worksheets (worksheets!) to help us work through what my vision for the wedding was. She asked all of the pertinent questions, including the ones I wouldn’t have even thought of. Before we booked her, I wanted my mom to meet her. Mommy lives out of state, so I wanted her to have a good feeling about who was at the helm of our day. Jillian graciously accommodated a second meeting, and wooed my mom just as she did me!
Her vendor selections (we used her selections for everything but paper–we’d already booked Terri at Naomi’s Paperie before booking Jillian) were all everything we asked for. She was so responsive and nice, even playing referee when my mom and I didn’t see eye-to-eye on design. She operates your event from an online portal, which is awesome! You can see the progress of the whole event from one location, which is key when mother of the bride is out of state. Fast forward to wedding weekend. From the rehearsal all the way through the final send off, everything was on time and above our expectations. Jillian managed everything from the getting ready and staying on timeline to the making sure the wedding starts on time (and late guests weren’t permitted, per my instructions), to managing the room flip during cocktail hour. She did not stop working for us until after all of the sparklers were collected after the send off! If you’re on the fence, take my advice BOOK HER TODAY before someone else takes your date!
