Jennifer and her staff coordinated our daughter’s wedding at the Union Hill Inn on March 23, 2019. I honestly didn’t think that we needed a wedding coordinator at first, but as the date got closer, I really began to see the value in having this service.
Jennifer was a great communicator who handled every detail of the wedding with efficiency. Her experience with the local vendors and also the Union Hill venue made her invaluable to us. She was a pleasure to work with and really kept the various wedding day events on schedule. She did so many little things to make the day special. We do not know what we would have done without her!
We highly recommend Jennifer for your wedding event!

Jennifer did a great job assisting us throughout the wedding planning process. She immediately responded to our email questions. If she had not heard from us in a while she would just drop us a quick line to make sure we were on-track. Jennifer was knowledgeable about all the workings, offerings, rules and restrictions at our wedding venue (Union Hill Inn - Sonora, CA). This intimate knowledge helped us utilize the venue to its full potential! Consider hiring for both coordination and floral scopes of work to eliminate an extra vendor.

Jennifer with An Occassion Events was honestly the main reason our wedding was so successful and why we managed to keep our heads screwed on throughout the whole planning process. She bent over backwards to not only answer every question and cater to every whim, but also put in extra time to help bring our creative and crazy ideas to fruition! Jennifer is the best decision we made regarding our wedding and by the time our wedding rolled around we were sad to not have a formal reason to work together with her anymore. We consider her a wonderful friend, and we are so grateful for everything she did to help organize our wedding and decorate it with beautiful flower arrangements!
Jennifer and her team were absolutely amazing! If it weren’t for her, things would have been chaos. We were right in schedule the entire time, and Jennifer was always there to get us where we needed to be. Jennifer worked so well with all of the vendors and kept in contact with them through the entire planning process so we didn’t have to. I live in Boise, ID, but got married in CA, and she managed to keep everything organized and meet with the vendors so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Jennifer and Suzette made the most beautiful flower arrangements I have ever seen, and we had no expectations for the decor, which was absolutely STUNNING! Everything looked so amazing together, and people were continuously complimenting her work. You can tell that Jennifer loves what she does, and I was reminded of this so much when she got teary eyed as we were ready to walk down the aisle. I’m sure she sees weddings every weekend, but they still manage to make her emotional, which was so special to me. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives, and we owe a HUGE thanks to Jennifer and her team.
Jennifer and her crew were simply AMAZING! We were married at The Higuera Ranch in San Luis Obispo near where we met and currently live in the bay area. From start to finish Jennifer was always one step ahead and kept us on track every step of the way. Although my husband and I as well as Jennifer all lived 3-4 hours away from the venue location, she still kept in communication with all of our vendors without a flaw. I thought I had a lot of creative ideas for our big day until Jennifer came in and really made my country wedding come to life with all of her professional touches. I highly recommend reaching out if you are looking for a perfect florist/planner combo! Heads up she books up fast!

Jennifer has an amazing talent and passion for what she does. She is most concerned with making your day a reflection of who you are and works hard to provide choices and ideas that match your wishes. We are so grateful that Jennifer as well as Susette shared their expertise and creativity with us on this special day. For all of us, the day couldn't have been better and thank you so much for tying it altogether and keeping us on track, on time, and relaxed!! I would highly recommend Jennifer and her team at An Occasion for your wedding!! I will add photos when we get them!!

Jennifer and her team were so amazing! Leading up to the wedding Jennifer was very helpful and always answered our questions so promptly. She made sure our day represented us and what we wanted, she combined both of our visions creating a beautiful rustic, elegant and glamorous wedding. Rehearsal went so smooth thanks to Jennifer, she was able to guide everyone and made sure our bridal party had all there questions answered. The Big day went off without a hitch, she kept me calm and handled everything so I could focus on getting ready and relaxing. Jennifer was beyond amazing and is so talented! She made everything possible and was the BEST wedding planner ever! She loves what she does and it made planning the wedding that much better, she really made us feel special and like we were the center of attention.
Jennifer and her staff were absolutely AMAZING! They made the whole process of wedding planning so easy and fun. I can’t tell you how many people said I was such a stress free bride and all of that was because of JENNIFER! She thought of all the little things and made sure nothing was missed! Even with the weather being difficult the day of the wedding she handled it like a professional! I cannot thank you enough for everything. You made our day truly the best day ever!
Love, The Victorino’s
I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you thank you thank you for everything. It has been a pleasure working with you the past year. You made everything a thousand times easier for me and I felt so calmed by the fact that you saw and got my vision from the start. You and your team really worked hard to make our wedding day come to life beyond our wildest dreams. It was absolutely perfect, rain and all! I so appreciated day of knowing everything was in your capable hands allowing me to just enjoy the experience with my new husband.
We still are hearing from our family and guests how incredible they feel it was and everyone comments on the magicalness of it all. Our families have expressed how awesome you were as well. It was the perfect way to start this new chapter of our lives. I know not everything went as planned as no wedding does, but it happened exactly as it was supposed to. I can't express my gratitude enough. I feel very blessed to have been able to have the wedding of my dreams.

I was a very hands on bride and I did a lot leading up to the wedding. By the time it was our wedding weekend I just wanted to enjoy, I was checked out of wedding planning! I trusted Jennifer to handle our day like she would her own and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I was able to sit back and relax and I know that not every bride gets that luxury. Thanks again!
We worked with Jennifer and her team for our wedding at Union Hill Inn. She was great at listening to our wants and desires and helping us to figure out how to make it happen. She helped with the wedding timeline and communicated with all vendors so that we could focus on other things (i.e. life lol). I didn't really feel like I needed a coordinator until the day of the wedding. With Jennifer's help, everything went smoothly and I didn't have to worry or think about a thing! She also helped with all setup and take down! I couldn't recommend her more! Christina
Jennifer and I immediately connected at our first meeting. She was on the same page as me the whole time we were planning, in fact, she was more like 10 steps ahead! The weekend of the wedding, she was so on top of everything and made me feel completely stress free! I would 100% recommend Jennifer to every one of my friends. She was the best!
Megan and Mike

Jennifer did a fantastic job as our event planner for our wedding. She was extremely organized, communicative, helpful, and so easy to work with. She executed our vision perfectly, and we were really happy with the design of our wedding. She is an amazing resource for other vendors, and had excellent recommendations to enhance our big day. Thank you, Jennifer, for ALL you did for us; you made our day one we will never forget! Book her - you will be glad you did! Thank you again!

When our 2 daughters planned wedding dates to be 6 months apart, we knew right away we would have to have help. We would need the best. Our only choice was An Occasion! Both weddings were very unique to each daughters taste. Susette and Jennifer went above and beyond to make both wedding days, ones they would never forget! As parents of both brides, We were truly able to enjoy their special days 100% knowing everything, down to the smallest detail, was taken care of by Jennifer and Susette. The weddings were flawless!!

An Occasion Florals and Planning was recommended to me by my mother-in-law who knew one of the ladies personally and I am so glad I listened to her! From the very beginning they were professional, timely and also extremely easy going, which anyone who has gotten married knows, that is exactly what the bride needs. I had no idea what to expect when it came to florals for a wedding and they put my mind at ease. Their pricing was competitive and they were conscious of our budget at all times. The flowers took my breath away when I first saw them. They were EXACTLY what I had pictured and lasted long after our wedding night was even over. I would highly recommend their services to anyone!
As the Hitching Post Catering Coordinators, we have had the opportunity to work with Jennifer and Suzette from An Occasion many time. We are always excited when we get to partner on an event with them. They are creative and fun, professional and hard-working. They have an ability to focus on the large picture and the small detail simultaneously. Their flowers and decor are gorgeous and high quality. Upon hearing that they are the florist at any event, we know we can relax and be certain that all deadlines will be met by these cheerful and wonderful women and their staff. We recommend them to our clients constantly. Our clients have raved about An Occasion and, as vendors, it is an absolute treat to work alongside these ladies.
-Dawn Herd and Amanda Markstone, Catering Coordinators at The Hitching Post
I just adore working with Jennifer and her team An Occasion events. They are true professionals from the heart. Their planning and execution of large, very detailed weddings is seamless. Collaboration with such an amazing team makes my job as a wedding photographer so much easier
Jennifer was our wedding coordinator and we couldn't have been happier with her. She was so easy to work with and knew exactly how I wanted everything. On your wedding day you don't want to have to worry about anything and we didn't because she was so on top of everything. She is super friendly, has impeccable taste and is very organized.
We would recommend her for any event.

There are not enough words of praise in the dictionary for Jennifer. Jennifer you made Kendra and Cameron's wedding weekend into the best of our family's life. The flowers were gorgeous. Everything went off without a hitch. The wedding was amazing. The vendors all worked together and had nothing but praise in working with you. You are a star. Any family that has the chance to work with you should take it. You weren't just a wedding planner. You became our friend. We love you!
Pam - Mother of the bride - Union Hill Inn
