What the couples are saying…

 

Jessica from J. Barry Designs was so easy to work with.  She made my wedding beautiful yet edgy, and incorporated the theme of our wedding into all of her designs.  Immediately upon our first meeting her she knew our taste, style and creative vision for our wedding.  We also were lucky enough to have Sean Barry DJ our reception.  He got in all of our music requests and kept the party going until the last song!  Thank you Jessica and Sean for making our wedding rock!  It couldn’t have gone any better. 🙂

Looking back at my wedding day I realize that it could not have been as amazing as it was without a special something…and that something was Jessica as my wedding planner.Jessica is the type of person that you want around helping you create, plan, and execute a one-of-a-kind event. I cannot express how helpful, creative, personable, and talented she is! It was wonderful working with someone who could see my vision and help make it a reality.If you are looking for someone to make your event a day you and everyone else will remember for a lifetime, Jessica is your gal!

I have been meaning to write reviews for everyone because everything was amazing! I’ve written something below. My mom would second everything; one of her favorite past times as already become showing people pictures of the wedding on her phone =)
The entire experience of working with you was great. I really appreciate your help and patience when we first met for a consultation. I didn’t have any clear plans, just a vague picture of what I wanted and you helped that become something concrete that we could all work on putting together. I LOVED the flowers, everyone did, the wood boxes for the table were beautiful, but my favorite was the breathtaking mantle piece that we were able to re-use for the head table. The bouquets and boutonnieres were also great. I love the combination of textures, they were so interesting, and they tied in with the table flowers beautifully. I also really appreciate how open you were to last-minute questions and additions, and your patience and trust in our getting the lighting and some of our DIY decorations together. When I was unsure about the linen color, it was really helpful that you met me at the linen warehouse with a mock up of the flowers so we could see what the tables would actually look like. You were wonderful to work with.
Part of what made the whole day run so smoothly was that you were providing day-of coordination and everyone knew one another and had worked together before. Rather than having a bunch of different vendors responsible for their portion of the event, it felt like a team of people, which gave me so much piece of mind. I would highly recommend everyone who had a part in the wedding, the caterer, En Blum, the Photographer, Foskett Creative, and the DJ, Sean Barry. My parents are keeping everyone’s numbers handy for when my youngest sister gets married.
Best,
