Wow, Jillian was an incredible wedding planner! We can not say enough nice things about her. She made the whole wedding planning process feel so much less stressful, always approaching everything with a calm, knowledgable, & level head. The day of our wedding went so smooth, and I never felt stressed out once, because she was just handling everything that came up quietly behind the scenes. My mom & friends noticed Jillian's professionalism too, noting she was always on top of everything! She had a lot to juggle, since we had about 175 people at a venue with a ton of rules, but she seamlessly handled it all. Aside from that, she is also just so sweet and easy to talk to. I knew from our first phone call she would be perfect for us. 10/10! We can't wait to use her for future events, since she also does all kinds of other events too!
Jillian is an absolute gem! We booked the partial wedding planning package that started 3-months prior to our wedding and upon booking, we added a kick-off call w/ Jillian to get us on the right track from the get-go. After that first call, I knew she was the perfect fit! I loved her energy and knew that with her personality, she would help me get my sh*t together! Jillian shared her knowledge, was straightforward about certain things that ended up saving us time and money and was hands-on and organized throughout the entire process. On our wedding day, it honestly felt like I had another bestie in my bridal party. :) It was awesome to see her in her element - she took charge, communicated with all the vendors, kept us on schedule, found family members when they'd go missing before their speeches/dances and still managed to continuously check on my husband and me. She made sure we were having fun and always had food/drinks in our hands throughout the night. A wedding truly is a production, like putting on a show or a play, and you need a good director to keep everything in line and that's Jillian! It's an investment you won't regret! Thank you for helping our vision come to life Jillian, we adore you!
We met Jillian at one of the LA Bridal Shows back in 2020. There were so many planners at the event to choose from but what really impressed us and was a key factor for us going with her was the fact that her post-Bridal show email to us was so personalized (she remembered an off-to-the-side comment I made about wanting to use Airport codes as table numbers). We originally started off with her as a month-of package, but swapped to a 6-month package when we rebooked our wedding due to the pandemic. Although we had locked down about 90% of our vendors (outstanding was floral/bakery), we were so glad to have Jillian's help to coordinate in the months leading up to the event. There were so many little things that Jillian provided suggestions/feedback/coordination for that we would have otherwise forgotten (though we did forget to do a Thank You speech for the guests...but we were able to wing it). She was always responsive and quick to react to our suggested changes (and we made a lot of them!). Although we made most of the design/decoration choices, Jillian provided great examples and vision board suggestions. On the day of the event, she was great at getting everything set up beautifully and making sure we were (to the best ability) kept on timeline. Highly recommend Jillian and thank you again!
Jillian & her team were an absolute godsend throughout our entire wedding planning process. My husband and I work really long hours, so as soon as we got engaged, we knew right away that we would need a professional planner to help us. She is without a doubt, the most important and valuable vendor that we hired during the planning process. We feel so lucky that we were able to have her endless guidance, organization, support, and advice from the very early stages of planning, all the way through the execution of the day itself! From the very beginning, Jillian made sure to understand exactly what our vision was and guided us in making all the decisions that allowed us to achieve that vision. She was with us every step of the way - interviewing and hiring vendors, building out a design plan (she has amazing taste!), ensuring that we stayed on budget, communicating and coordinating with our venue, coordinating with all our vendors, creating an extremely thorough timeline for the day-of, always making time to answer every single question and advise on every single concern we ever had...the list is truly endless. We always felt like we were in such good hands with her. She was always so professional, organized, and personable - it felt like she was one of our good friends by the time the day finally came :) As far as the day itself went - truly all of our guests commented on how it was one of the most well-organized and smoothly run weddings they had ever been to. They also commented on how my husband and I seemed to be so present, happy, and stress-free throughout the entire day (which we really were! I didn't stress one bit). We really have Jillian to thank for why we were able to relax and trust that the whole day would still go smoothly. As with most weddings, there were also certain unexpected surprises that happened throughout the day. One of the most annoying situations that came up was at one point, a prospective bride who was touring the venue rudely tried to ENTER our bridal suite as I was getting ready, like literally about to put on my wedding dress. None of the venue coordinators were even in sight (let alone trying to stop her), but without any hesitation, Jillian intervened and made sure that the situation was handled. I'm telling you - she really takes care of you and has your back!! During the ceremony, there was also a moment when the bridal procession got briefly held up because our two young flower girls decided to stop walking in the middle of the aisle. There's literally a picture of Jillian swooping in to save the day and help the girls get to their seats :) She also helped us pull off some of the personal touches we wanted to make sure to include in our day. One of my biggest concerns was wanting to make sure that we had plenty of open dancing time available at the end of the night, and because of Jillian's excellent planning, we wound up having over 3 hours of open dancing at our wedding - it was truly a dream come true! In order to ensure that we kept our family and friends dancing throughout the night, we knew that they'd need to be fueled up in order to do so. Jillian helped us surprise everyone with late night In N Out burgers and fries when we were midway through the dance floor. Everyone was soo pleasantly surprised and excited - some of our guests are literally still talking about it, especially the ones who had flown in from the east coast (our wedding was in SoCal). Anyway, we can't say enough about how THANKFUL we are to Jillian & her team for executing the best wedding day ever! If you're in the process of looking for a dedicated, diligent, talented, professional, organized, and personable event planner - look no further, Jillian is the one!
Working with Jillian of Jillian Nicole Events for our wedding was an absolute pleasure. Jillian is highly organized in every aspect, from the prepared day of timeline to its implementation on the actual day. She and her team showed great attention to detail, making sure the little things we asked for were taken care of, flawless and perfect! The day of coordination was excellent, she seamlessly made adjustments as we needed and did it in rapid time. Jillian and her team are professional and kind, helpful and efficient! They went the extra mile and were consistently attentive and helpful on our big day, making sure we had what we needed at every moment, even when I needed something from her emergency kit!! We can’t thank Jillian and everyone at Jillian Nicole Events for making our special day as special as we had hoped!!
