Collaborative Planning and Event Design

We Love Logistics

Every event has a story, and JPB Designs helps you tell yours.  We partner with you to create the event of your dreams, one that is completely unique to you, your love, your business or your passion. Since each event is inspired by what makes the client special, no two events are alike - and they're all our favorites. 

Each event is researched, planned, collaborated upon and executed to transform your vision into reality. Whether you are planning a wedding, corporate event or a nonprofit function, we would be delighted to help you tell your story!

WEDDING PLANNING

We start by getting to know the two of you as a couple. We are truly inspired by your life, your family and the little things that make your relationship special. To us, telling your story is as essential to the success of your wedding day as the venue or color palette. By marrying your personalities and the details that you love, your unique wedding day plan begins to form. Whether your plans are traditional, modern or a style that doesn't have a label (yet!), we'll help you incorporate personalized and meaningful elements into your day.

WEDDING SERVICES

JPB Designs prides ourselves on providing a comprehensive suite of wedding planning services to fit every couple's needs and budget. Each a la carte tier of our involvement is outlined below. We strongly recommend that you meet with us before mentally committing to a specific package so that we can discuss your vision one on one. 

"Thank you for helping us have the best day ever for Maggie and Larry's wedding. Perfect! I do not know what I would have done without you!"

4. Do you travel?

You bet! Let us know where you are considering having your event and we’ll walk you through what is involved with having one of our event planners on site.

5. What if I feel like I might have trouble relinquishing control on one of the biggest days of my life?

Honestly, we have a lot of “Type A” clients. After meeting with us, those people realize they are in good hands! We're "Type A" ourselves, and by your wedding day, we'll have all of the details fully executed so you can relax and enjoy the day with your spouse, family and friends.

6.  My venue already has a coordinator, so why should I look into hiring you?

Although we cannot speak to the quality or service that your venue coordinator is offering, we can tell you that we offer a whole-day experience. From the moment your hair and makeup are wrapping up, we are on site making sure everyone is ready to leave on time with everything they need. Working with transportation, the church and your guests, we help direct traffic, grab grandmas who might otherwise be left behind and collect your remaining items from the church. We are leading the pack while at the same time following behind to ensure no detail is overlooked.

1.  When is the ideal time to hire a wedding planner?  

We strongly believe it is important to hire your wedding planner soon after you get engaged. We can explain the pros and cons of each venue and help you anticipate unexpected costs. It’s always great to have us help you plan your engagement party, too! With years of experience in this industry, we know all about the latest venue openings and the most reliable vendors for your big day.

2.  What sets JPB Designs apart from other event planners?

Integrity is paramount to our success. We do not accept money from wedding industry vendors in exchange for recommending them, so you can trust that all of our suggestions are motivated entirely by our desire to craft the best possible event for you. Whether you're planning an event for 50 or 500 guests, our skilled team is comfortable taking the reins and managing teams, vendors and logistics throughout the planning process. Whether you are looking for us to step in and manage logistics or plan the entire event,  JPB Designs is proud to provide a la carte planning options and flexibility to meet each client's specific needs. We are committed to our open door policy, so you can count on always being able to reach us at any point during the planning process. And because location can drive pricing, our package prices vary from region to region to remain competitive with other planning companies across the country. 

3.  Why choose us?
Take it from our clients: they've shared with us that they greatly value our experience, honesty, trusted relationships and approachability. These are all goals we've sought to cultivate and we're honored that our customers feel we are succeeding.
