Working with Candice at Jubilee Events was the best decision I made for our wedding. I was a little hesitant about getting a planner at first, as I thought it was an unnecessary luxury. I was wrong. I am an extremely good planner, but I wanted to be able to relax and enjoy my big day. Thanks to Candice, that is exactly what I got to do. I just knew anything I threw at her, I could consider taken care of. I took the route of working in tandem with Candice on everything to achieve my vision, and the day was amazing. She responds very quickly to emails, and always has such an excited and positive attitude about everything. Whether your email is about something as big as the dinner menu, or as small as where to source personalized pencils, she handles it with enthusiasm. She has a great list of vendors at her disposal as well. The entire team is so cheerful and enthusiastic. They are also very creative and brimming with fresh ideas. It may seem expensive to get a planner, but it is worth every penny for what you get out of it. My day went off without a hitch and was just as I wanted it to be. Hire Candice and her team!!
Elisabeth and her team were great. They did the flowers for my rehaearsal dinner and wedding, and they came out beautifully. They really listended to everything I wanted, with all my specific details, and brought it to life on the big day. The flowers were so gorgeous and I couldn't be more pleased with how it all came out.
Jennie Fresia Beauty Library is a fantastic service to use for your wedding day hair and makeup. Jennie did the makeup for my bridesmaids and me while Kelly Sharkey did the hair. They come to you, as opposed to having to go to a salon, which makes a huge difference on the day in my opinion. They were very professional, fun to spend time with, and did beautiful work. They really listen and give you what you want. When I decided I wanted to change my hair they offered me a 2nd trial at no charge! I felt beautiful on my big day!
I cannot say enough good things about Mary Coburn. This day in age where anyone can get ordained, it has become popular to have a friend or relative officiate your ceremony. Some people feel it's odd to have someone marry you that doesn't know you that well. Though I understand their thought process, the other side of that coin is that the person marrying you needs to be able to speak well and thoughtfully to a crowd. The great thing about Mary is that not only is she great at leading a crowd, but you meet her and you feel like you HAVE known her for years. I mean that in all sincerity. She has this special way about her, and you know that she truly finds joy in being your celebrant. She listended so intently and excitedly to our stories, and it just turned into a conversation among friends. She wrote us the most beautiful, and thoughtful ceremony. The most compliments I got from guests was about her and what an amazing ceremony it was. She is extremely helpful and supportive throughout the process, and always responds quickly. Hire Mary; you will be so happy you did.
This is a beautiful place to host your bridal party and/or close family for your wedding. The suite is a perfect place to get ready with the bridal party, and the views are spectacular. They serve a nice breakfast but if you are looking for more than continental then you'll need to venture elsewhere in the morning. They also do not serve alcohol so make sure to bring your own.
Jonathan Edwards Winery is a unique and magical place for a wedding. The venue has a country elegance feel to it, and there are so many different areas to explore and use for pictures and decor. You won't find better wine in Connecticut either. Erica, the event coordinator, is fantastic to work with as well.
