Life is an event, isn’t it? It’s full of moments you want to remember forever and filled with the people you want to share each moment with. That’s why we’re here. To make sure the big moments are the affairs of a lifetime.
We understand what it means to plan a wedding. Not just in the details and timelines (though, yes, this is important and taken care of, too), but also in the way you hold it close to your heart. We take pride in our work because you take pride in yourself.
And that’s exactly why we are the power team for dynamic couples and individuals, like you.
Is to help you capture those once-in-a-lifetime moments and memories with luxury design and seamless timelines. We want you to wake up on the morning of your event and realize that everything you could possibly worry about, everything that could possibly stress you, doesn’t need to be thought about at all. We want you to walk into your venue and realize that the room layout is beautiful. No, not just beautiful. Perfect. As if, time is standing still and you know you’ve made the best choice possible by allowing us to create your event dream team.
We want you to look back on your event a year, five years, ten years, and fifty years from now and can still taste the hors d'oeuvres that were specifically chosen for you. We want you to still smell the specialty bouquets. And we want you to take a deep breath and breathe in the fact that on one of the most memorable days of your life, you had a celebration that made you and your family proud. We make sure that happens, stress-free and seamlessly. So you don’t have to think about anything except enjoying the moment as it’s happening.
Always the planner. Jenn recalls that her Mom was the first to identify her love for planning. “My Mom used to call me ‘Julie’ from the Love Boat, “because you’re always planning stuff” she would say.” At a young age Jenn was always planning events for friends and family, complete with pretty tablescapes and a delicious menu for guests to enjoy.
Today Jenn is the Design Lead at Infatuating Affairs, responsible for helping clients dream big while honing in on their personal style and aesthetic, and then bringing it all to life. Often drawing ideas out in her sketchbook, Jenn’s favorite thing about event planning is designing magical moments from scratch and creating an environment where love and joy overflows.
