Jubilee Event Engineers
Nationally recognized full service event planning company specializing in artful and inspired weddings. Offering stellar planning, coordination, consulting and design services in Seattle and destinations throughout the Pacific Northwest since 2002.
Kristen provided full-service coordination for our wedding with a guest list of about 130 people in Seattle. From the start she did an unbelievable job making a collection of what we thought were wild thoughts into a cohesive reality. During the process Kristen was super-organized -- the schedules, budgets, and spreadsheets she shared (via google docs) helped us to always feel that we had a grasp on all of the many, many details.
Kristen has a strong network of vendors that she works with, and she always knew which ones would be best for us to look into, kind of like a matchmaker; once we showed her our vision and she got to know our personalities she presented us with the right set of options. She even had us interview the especially important potential vendors like photographer, florist and caterer. Once we made our choice all of the 'nitty gritty' just magically happened, allowing us to focus on the important stuff and still have a pretty normal life that wasn't totally dominated by 'wedding planning'!
During the day of the wedding we had full confidence that everything would go smoothly, and lo and behold it did! Many of our family & guests raved about how all the details were perfectly executed. Kristen was even aware enough at the end of the night to have her assistant drive our car back to the hotel, since we certainly were in no shape to do so. ;-)
Bottom line: Kristen coordinated and executed the wedding of our dreams all the while we remained (relatively) sane. We would suggest Kristen and Jubilee Event Engineers to our closest friends with confidence. - Alanna B.
Patient, perceptive, organized, creative, well-connected, tireless, reliable, kind, unflappable, efficient and effective. Just a few of countless positive adjectives we have for Kristen's outstanding work to plan and orchestrate the happiest day of our lives in Seattle. Lynn and I live in Ohio, and our 40 guests came in from all over the country to enjoy the most joyous celebration imaginable. The wedding, pre-reception, dinner, music, dancing, and all of the details were simply beautiful and flawless and perfectly suited to us, thanks to Kristen's masterful planning, outstanding vendors, and on-site execution -- almost like an invisible magician! We did not have to worry about a thing that day but were free to enjoy all the exceptional moments. Kristen has our strongest recommendation to anyone planning a wedding or special event in the Seattle area. - Sandra A.
We worked with Kristen for a full year planning our big gay wedding, about 100 guests. She listened closely to our needs, helped us think through all the options from venue to place settings, and nailed innumerable final details including a last-minute addition to our flower order. She also helped us keep costs down by carving out some of the planning we could do ourselves, like booking the band. She was great with using Google Docs as a way of collaborating and coordinating our planning. On the day-of, she worked her tail off to make sure everything was set up. The ceremony and reception both went off without a hitch! Everybody said that it was the most beautiful and unique wedding they had ever attended, and I believe them. It was perfect. - Jonathan B.
My wife and I hired Kristen to plan our wedding in the Methow Valley of Eastern WA. We could not have done it without her! I don't even know how much or how hard she worked the day of because I was able to just get ready and enjoy the build up while she was out making everything happen. She would just casually drop in to the cabin and run things by me then disappear to the event site to direct vendors and friends, deal with issues that I'm pretty sure came up (but I didn't have to stress about) and generally orchestrate the event. She was a inconspicuous bride buffer, checking in with me throughout the event on timing, how we were feeling, if we needed anything. She worked late into the night after the event was over, making sure our presents and keepsakes were safe and cared for.
We consistently heard compliments from family and friends that they can't believe how we pulled off such an amazing wedding, how no detail was missed and how perfect the weekend was. They didn't realize so much of it was Kristen! We were told an event planner should make you feel like a guest at your own wedding. We felt like we were absolutely able to enjoy the day, had minimal day of stress, felt respected and totally got to feel like more than guests at our wedding. Additionally, Kristen was invaluable in the pre-wedding planning sessions that the day of package includes. She helped manage our expectations, was realistic and practical while still encouraging our creativity and visions for our wedding. We technically had a DIY wedding, I suppose but it was really a DIYWYWP wedding (do it yourself with your wedding planner). Kristen was so worth it! Hire her! -- Debbie C.
Kristen helped us plan and provided day of service for our August 9th wedding. My partner was a bit skeptical b/c Kristen doesn't come cheap - but Holy Wow - you get what you pay for! She was instrumental in carrying out our vision and her work on day of stuff was absolutely flawless! My partner and I were able to fully enjoy our perfect day b/c Kristen took care of everything.
HIRE THIS WOMAN FOR YOUR WEDDING PLANNING! - Carol B.
