Jodell was wonderful to work with over the past year of planning our wedding! I was reluctant at first to hire a wedding coordinator because I was sure that I could do everything but my mom insisted we meet Jodell. I am SO happy that we did because we couldn't of done the planning or the day of without her! She checked every contract that we signed, met with every vendor, helped with our timeline and made sure that day went off without a hitch! If there was a problem I didn't know it because she fixed it or found the person to fix it. She was very reliable and was so helpful on the day of the wedding! I would definitely recommend Starry Night Events to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator!

Not sure what I would have done without Jodell! We wanted to hire a day-of wedding coordinator because we weren’t able to set up for our reception venue until after the wedding party would be in photos, so we needed someone we could trust to set up the reception without us. Not only did she do this and make it look amazing, but she had several meetings with me ahead of time to get an idea of exactly how I pictured the day. She also scheduled everything from deliveries to the cake cutting and kept all my vendors in the loop on timing. She handled all of the tips that I had set aside for vendors, made sure the bridesmaids had everything they needed, kept track of my marriage license and glass ceremony pieces, and even picked up our lunch for the whole wedding party. On top of all of that, she did my dress alterations at a price that could not be beat by any of the seamstresses I have used in the past. I think the thing that set her apart is that you could tell how much she cared. It was so important to her that my day be perfect, and because of her, it was!

Jodell was a true PLEASURE and HELP beyond words! It was great to delegate and have a professional point person on our wedding day. We got to enjoy getting ready for our wedding, our ceremony, our bridal party, reception and enjoy our guest without answering questions... all day long. Jodell made sure all participating vendors knew what to do and where to be. Jodell handled questions and she took care of big and small details. I felt confident that Jodell had everything under control and we truly got to enjoy celebrating our wedding! End of event, our stuff was packed, our cars were loaded and we got to enjoy the entire day, no work! Jodell is truly amazing and the peace of mind she provided was priceless! Our wedding day was one of the most important days of our life. It wouldn't have been the same without Jodell!
