"I hired jbk events to do my sister's wedding in the tri cities. She's the only wedding coordinator that I talked with that had any experience doing Indian weddings. She maintained everything while we could focus on our family and friends. I don't think my sister knows to this day all of the hoops Jelena and her assistant jumped through to make this a seamless event. You are awesome!" — PRIYA
It's no accident that Jelena's reviews are so amazing. She's really that good. My husband and I were beyond impressed with her. She is SUPER responsive, very well organized, professional, calm, experienced, and our wedding MVP for sure! We hired her as our day of coordinator and our florist and the flowers were BEYOND gorgeous! The actual wedding had some hiccups that I didn't even know about until after the wedding because she just handled everything like a pro. If I would have known that we FORGOT the table numbers (oops), water was dripping on guests from the ceiling of our venue (major oops) or that the timing was off, I would have completely freaked out. Thank GOD Jelena was there with her tool belt (for real, she has an awesome tool belt she walks around with) to handle every problem. She was worth every penny and more! Jelena even found us a caterer that would travel from Seattle to Bellingham for a reasonable price! Total lifesaver. She went so above and beyond for us in every way. I had a very specific vision of what I wanted for my wedding (I made all the decorations, including table runners) and she executed every detail perfectly. I don't know what I can hire her for in the future, but I feel like I need to have a party ASAP just to hire her again!

“Our wedding day went off without a hitch...”
We used JBK weddings for both our flowers and day-of-coordination. To say Jelena was amazing is an understatement! Our wedding day went off without a hitch, and Jelena has just the personality you want in a planner. She made sure everything ran on time and took away a lot of the stress of dealing with vendors and trouble-shooting mishaps throughout the day. She was available throughout the entire process, even though we just had her for day-of coordinating. She made the whole day stress free so that we could really enjoy our special day (and wow did it go by quickly!). My husband and I both say that choosing JBK weddings was the single best decision we made in the wedding planning process! She also referred multiple vendors to us, and everyone she recommended was amazing. We used both a photographer and DJ she recommended, and our guests were dancing until 1:15am. The flowers were also gorgeous; many of our guests commented on how beautiful everything was and the style matched exactly what we were looking for. Thank you so much JBK weddings!

“She took all the stress off of us and handled everything...”
We used JBK Weddings and Events for my son and daughter in laws wedding and it was the best move we made. We didn't budget for an entire wedding planner so we used her for the day of coordination and we had her do our flowers. She was priceless!!!! She took all the stress off of us and handled everything. She organized the vendor's and was in contact with all of them. She made sure the wedding was on time and everything went as planned. She even stayed until the last minute and helped with all the clean up. I can't imagine the wedding day without her beautiful face there reassuring us that it was ok! The flowers were perfect and soooo beautiful. She is very artistic and talented. The kids had a theme and she loved that and took it and ran with it. She found certain items that tied into the theme and made everything perfect. Thank you Jelena, we will be friends for life!!!
“She made the whole wedding process easier...”
Working with Jelena was amazing. She was so organized and made wedding planning so much easier! We hired her for day-of services and I'm so glad we did. I was planning my wedding from out of state which added some extra stress for me. Jelena helped me figure out the wedding day timeline, when to send the invites, when to do engagement pictures, gave me suggestions for DJs, photographers, and bakeries for cakes. Not only did she make the wedding planning process easier, she also made the day-of completely stress free for me and handled everything. She coordinated with other vendors and everything ran so smoothly.
Although we only hired her for "day-of" she was always available via email or phone and spent many hours helping me plan to make sure everything was just how I had envisioned.
Jelena also arranged all of our flowers and they were gorgeous. I could not have asked for a better wedding planner/florist for our wedding. I would recommend Jelena to everybody in a heartbeat!

Jelena is beyond amazing! I absolutely appreciated her help with making our dream wedding come true! Very patient and detailed oriented, I'd recommend her services to anyone I know that is getting married. I honestly had no clue what I was doing. Jelena made it very easy to decide on what the important things were we wanted out of our wedding. She even did her absolute best to find us the best deals. I figured she saved us about 2k in the end. She is great to work with and loves what she does. You'd be missing out if you didn't hire her! - Helica and Derek
“The best choice we made during our wedding planning”
Jelena was simply amazing and definitely the best choice we made during our wedding planning. Originally, we hired her to do the flowers for our wedding and then after a few months we added on day-of-coordinating. Jelena immediately understood our vision and was so flexible and helpful throughout the process. Not to mention all the beautiful decor items she has to rent, I seriously felt like a kid in a candy store! And the flowers...they were simply amazing! Better than I could have imagined. She saved us so much stress on the day of and our wedding was prefect, flowed beautifully, and we didn't have a worry in the world. I would highly recommend Jelena as a florist and wedding day coordinator.

“Phenomenal Work Jelena”
I actually did not get a chance to use Jelena as my wedding planner, however I found her online when I was searching for a the perfect card box. When I saw her work, I instantly fell in love with her style. Super unique & glamorous work! I contacted her right away to see if I could purchase one of her boxes even though I did not use her for my wedding planning so instantly told her that I could and she would be glad to sell it to me. She went out of her way, numerous times to the post office to get quotes on shipping information since she was sending the package from Seattle to New Jersey. When I received my wedding card box it was more beautiful in person than in the pictures online.
I totally wish I would of found her earlier, because she was such a huge help even though she was in Seattle. I can't wait for people to see her work at my wedding and I'm sure everyone will be asking me who I used! :D Phenomenal work Jelena, your the best! Thank you!
