About the Founding Fête
Bonjour, I'm Jennifer! Planning was always a way for me to look forward to something. From planning outfits to planning nights out with friends, I usually found myself making to-do lists and satisfyingly checking things off. When it came time to plan my own wedding, I knew I didn't trust anyone with my meticulously planned details (yes, I'm very much a type A, Enneagram 3). In the middle of planning, I got laid off from my magazine job in NYC, so I dove right in and took on the roll of both bride and coordinator. And guess what? I thrived. I fell in love with the process and the high pressure moments that comes with the craziness of wedding day, and apparently found my next job!
I hired Fête du Jour for my wedding and was thrilled with my choice. I was a tough bride because I have really high expectations and standards (and I definitely want things done a certain way), but I’m also extremely busy and didn’t want to spend my precious free time stressing over fonts and napkin rings. I met with Jenn, she totally got my aesthetic, and by our next meeting she had an amazing binder full of vendors that blew me away. I signed off on the big stuff, left the details to her, and had a totally stress free day that I actually enjoyed. Please do yourself a favor and hire her!!!
The Small Details
Having lived in London, Paris, and NYC, I snag inspiration from all over the globe to create breathtaking details that make up your special day. When I’m not scrolling through Instagram or Pinterest, I’m keeping busy as a real estate agent working with first time homebuyers in the Northern Virginia region. I can't wait for the day when I can help a former client couple buy their first home!
