Our day-of-coordinator was by far the most valuable investment we made during wedding planning. Jessica was an absolute gem and left no rock unturned the weeks before the wedding. She took the lead on contact with the vendors and gave us incredibly helpful feedback on timelines. She guided us through the rehearsal day and pointed out details that would not have crossed our minds. On the day of the wedding she was a superstar. Everything went so smoothly, in large part because she extinguished any issues that might have developed into fires. She coordinated the timing of events for 180 guests and kept the vendors on task. At the end of the night she helped to clean up and made sure that all gifts/decorations ended up packaged in the appropriate vehicles. Her attention to detail and leadership skills resulted in a perfect evening, which in turn meant a completely stress-free, enjoyable wedding for us. She did an outstanding job. We give Jessica the highest recommendation for her expertise and execution!

Jessica was fantastic. We knew from the screening call that she would help us have the wedding of our dreams. She demonstrated interest in our priorities for the big day and went the extra mile to make sure they became a reality. She has excellent judgement and knowledge of traditions to help plan everything from invitation timing to making a huppah for us when we couldn't find the right one (yes, she poured the concrete buckets!). Jessica was also excellent at navigating family coordination to minimize friction, and has a great handle on vendors (she found our caterer, which was both complimented frequently and reasonably priced). It is two months since our wedding and we are still finding out from friends the little touches Jessica did to make our day run smoothly for us and our guests. She did an A+ job and we are so appreciative. We would happily use Jessica again for any major events.

Jessica played a big part in making our wedding a special day! She jumped right in to help us with the final details and day-of wedding planning. She quickly familiarized herself with all of our vendors and the vision we had for our wedding day. We felt completely relaxed knowing Jessica was taking care of all the details at the venue while we got ready with our wedding parties at an off-site location. She kept the evening on schedule, without being overbearing, and took care of closing out the venue at the end of the evening. She was simply an outstanding partner to have on our team, and we are so grateful for all of her hard work!

I want to send a huge thank you to Jessica for making the most important day of our lives PERFECT. Jessica went above and beyond in making sure everything went smoothly on our big day. She had amazing attention to detail and made sure everything went according to plan. Jessica was there with us every step of the way, and didn't hesitate to meet up with us in person and discuss plans. Thanks to Jessica, we were able to fully enjoy our wedding without having to worry about anything. She came early and stayed late taking care of all our vendors, DJ, guests, etc. It was always a relief to see Jessica on our wedding day because we knew everything was going to be well managed. She was invaluable on our big day; I can't recommend her enough!

When we got married, a huge part of what made our wedding day a success was Jessica. She was mainly a day-of-coordinator for us, but she made sure everything was organized ahead of time and she had what she needed to make things run smoothly. On our big day, she was on top of every detail (and we had a lot on our schedule!), and whenever we saw her, she had a smile on her face and a calming demeanor, which really helped us relax and enjoy ourselves. There were of course issues that came up (e.g. a vendor trying to change the plan) and she handled them with grace. Jessica was really invaluable to our wedding and we highly recommend her!

Jess was such a godsend for our big day! We planned most of wedding ourselves, but I knew I needed someone to handle the execution, so we could focus on the celebration. Jess totally understood my vision, and coordinated all of the set up, day-of vendors, and even the rehearsal. When she noticed that our florist had forgotten part of our order, Jess immediately flew into action, and fixed the issue before I even knew it existed. She was detail-oriented and efficient, but still flexible and calm in a way that reduced everyone's stress. On a joyful day, she ran everything smoothly with a smile. Highly recommended!

I've known Jessica for a long time and during our many hours together, I was able to see her knack for carrying out a vision. I had no qualms about hiring her when I was getting married, and she deftly executed the day-of details at my wedding. Time and time again, because of not only her personality but also her work ethic and attention to detail, Jessica has proven her creativity, collaborative spirit, and competence are irreplaceable. I recommend working with City Lights Event Co. without hesitation.

As a planner myself, Jessica is the one person I could fully trust to be in charge on my wedding day. She is a dear friend and an incredible wedding coordinator. Right from the beginning, she helped me though each step of planning, ensuring every detail and decision was ready for the big day. When the day finally came, we were free to enjoy every moment of the ceremony and reception--with the peace that Jessica had everything under control. I could not say enough positive things about Jessica and her role: organized, competent, encouraging, creative, helpful, and a joy to work with. Second to marrying my husband, choosing Jessica to be our coordinator was the best wedding decision I made!
