You were an absolute pleasure to work with and I really appreciate your taking control of the younger guests. I was so pleasantly surprised that those young people were SO well-behaved and respectful. Even more so than so many “adults” who attend events here at the Museum. Also, I was wondering if you could send me some of your business cards and/or brochures so I can pass them on to my clients who are looking for a planner. I hope to see you here again very soon and look forward to working with you in the future.” Karen H., Director at Larz Anderson Automobile Museum, Casino Royale New Year’s Eve 2013 Extravaganza, December 31, 2012

“Julie and Jazzed Events not only helped me plan my wedding – but they put on the show! While I (the bride) was busy being in love, Julie and Jazzed carried the weight and burden of making my love turn into a marriage through a beautiful church wedding and backyard reception. Julie and Jazzed was able to connect me nearly all of the vendors for my wedding and helped me achieve my wedding budget goal. We succeeded and was able to come in just under budget. There are many, obviously, important aspects of a wedding… you havee the flowers, church reservations, wedding party coordination, food, drinks, timing, fittings, etc. – but the bride should never be burdened with the details. The bride should be focused on the love and marriage she is about to enter. Julie and Jazzed truly helped me be able to keep my eye on the prize… my now husband. I encourage brides to seriously consider and entrust your special day to Jazzed Events. They will not only take care of it all, but they will ensure a smooth – and beautiful wedding.” Corinne A., Bride Ventura-Ables Wedding, July 13, 2012

“Jazzed Events planned and coordinated my daughter’s wedding in July. They did an awesome job. Every guest told us it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended.” Karen V., Mother-of-the-Bride Ventura-Ables Wedding, July 13, 2012

“I felt that your service … met our expectation of helping to bridge the communication between my daughter (the bride) and us (the parents and sisters), and this is what we needed the most! Thank you. The service provided by your sound and hair people was excellent and everyone really was pleased with this part of the wedding planning/service. You did a great job helping to bring stuff up and w/set-up and standing in for the pastor. You and your crew were very professional. We really were glad we hired you and you helped us out in our time of need … we really did appreciate all you did for us and really your fee (with all you did) was low in our opinion. I want to again thank you so much and please extend our thanks to all of your crew for what they did to make [the bride’s] wedding so beautiful. It was a complicated and hard wedding to manage, but in the end, absolutely beautiful — !!! It was a group effort by many people – including you and your crew. A long-distance communication at a destination site was not easy. If you can do this type of wedding, the local ones should be a piece of cake for you in the future. Please take care and know we appreciate all you did – which was a lot! Good luck with your business – I hope it continues to grow for you.” Laurie B., Mother-of-the-Bride, May 19, 2012 Arruda-Bacheldor Lakeside Wedding, Portuguese Resort Reception

“Thank you sooooo much for everything!! It was wonderful and really I can’t believe everything went so well…..sorta thought that was impossible…..I can’t wait to get the pics! It was an amazing day and I am super grateful for everything you set up and did for us (probably even many things I may not have even noticed, but made the day easy!!) Hope you and your crew have recovered and continue to help crazed brides like myself 🙂 Thank you also for the blessings!” Erin B., Bride, May 19, 2012 Arruda-Bacheldor Lakeside Wedding, Portuguese Resort Reception

So pretty in pink, with the elaborate table decor, the fun filled centerpieces, the clothesline of goodies and the fully stocked bookshelves! And the food was delicious! The entire ‘event’ went off without a hitch. Very impressive! I wouldn’t have changed a thing! My expectations were exceeded!” Anonymous Guest Francese Baby Shower March 18, 2012

“I recently attended a wedding and reception that was hosted by JsLD Events (now Jazzed Events). Well you guys sure know how to throw a wedding! I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun with ”We Are the World” to top it off. (Did you see Randy jamming out to the Bruce Springsteen part?) To say the event came off without a hitch would be an understatement. Everything was absolutely beautiful and the whole night became a wonderful time for all who attended. The attention to quality was apparent as were the personal details of the bride and groom. I now recommend JsLD Events (now Jazzed Events) for anyone planning an event of any size. They certainly demonstrated to me they’re ability to bring people together and create memorable moments. My 2012 has started off on a positive note. I’m sorry I missed the breakfast the next morning but was anxious to get home. Thank you again.” Patti S., Wedding Guest Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“It was the most beautiful wedding. :)” Jacqueline L., Wedding Guest Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“The best NYE ever!!” Ruth H., Wedding Guest Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“As a guest at Julie’s events I can say many things but the one word that comes to mind is flawless. As an owner of an investment company I am always looking to give my clients a “red carpet treatment”. Julie knows what it takes to deliver a top shelf product. It is difficult to find this kind of service in our area. She is a diamond in the ruff.” Joe V., Wedding Guest Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“Julie was the event planner for a wedding in Dec. 2011. She was extremely organized, she had all parties coordinated well. All details were planned and executed precisely. She is a high energy person with many professional contacts that are important in this industry.” Patti Molik, Pastor Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“I have known Julie for over 25 years and in that time she has continued to impress those around her with her work ethic and attention to detail. Perfectionist IS her middle name. I would recommend her assistance with planning any event, party or special occasion.” Jeanne P., Bridesmaid Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“Julie Baker is the consummate professional. She brings organization and leadership to any event so you can relax and enjoy it with the assurance that everything is under control as Julie takes the helm and handles whatever need be done. She is dedicated to taking the pressure off of you to coordinate an event that reflects your individual needs and wishes with creativity and, most importantly, with a sense of humor! I feel Julie’s goal is to ensure any event that you have envisioned is met down to the last detail and I would highly recommend her for your next event … big or small!” Cheri T., Maid of Honor Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“While not having personally hired Julie, I have attended two wedding events (one summer, one winter) that she planned and coordinated. The food, music, decorations and beverages were all fantastic. Everything just worked. She is obviously consumed with nailing down the details. Hire her to outsource your worries and feel comfortable that your guests will be impressed.” John N., Wedding Guest Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“Happy New Year everyone! I think this was the best New Year I have ever had! It was a great time!” Mack L., Wedding Guest Mann-Baker Wedding, December 31, 2012

“Over Labor Day week-end 2011, just one week after hurricane Irene struck us (yikes); we had a several hour outdoor rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, including a 40 year wedding vow renewal, catered with heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer for 60. The following day we had an outdoor garden wedding with live musicians under a special personally constructed pergola with a specially designed and crafted metal medallion sculpture, followed by a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer; while the wedding party was taken to Lake George for photos. Then, a tented catered BBQ reception for 175 with live dance music, specialized lighting, a special family dance performance, open bar with signature cocktails, a special collection of personalized cupcakes and grooms cake, personalized hand crafted centerpieces, shimmering table decorations and a truly unique seating chart. We also had valet parking on the property and an elegant restroom trailer with all the amenities. In addition to both events being held at my home, all of the bridesmaids, the mother-of-the-bride and the bride prepared themselves there as well, including hair and makeup. We all began over a year ahead of time, with a fun adventure to Boston for “the Running of the Brides” event to find a wedding dress for the bride. Julie, Danielle and I worked so well together, with the most important mission being to have minimal stress on my family, making a truly memorable event come to life, with only fond memories to look back on. My greatest joy was to have that happen. Julie was a pleasure to work with throughout, with her attention to detail and creativity. The arrival of her business partner, Judy was perfect, as they made sure all of our best laid plans were achieved without a hitch throughout the 2 days of the events at my home. We were all able to enjoy the day’s events. My best comments “Smooth as Glass” – “Perfect in Every Way” ” Pam Y., Mother-of-the-Groom Fraim-York Wedding, September 3, 2011

“That was the best wedding I have ever been to … no, seriously … and I have been to a lot of weddings!” Karen V., Wedding Guest Fraim-York Wedding, September 3, 2011
