Remarkable service!!!
I was referred to Fresh from a mutual friend. Looking on her website and social media accounts I knew I had to hire her as my decorator for my wedding on 3.3.18. She stepped in and gave me all I wanted and more. At first I was nervous because she had to travel over 3 hours to execute my wedding details but I couldn’t have chose a better company to do so. Her knowledge and attention to detail provided an exceptional service.

Where do I begin?! Elle R Jae Events (Fresh) is simply the best. I honestly can’t imagine my wedding without her. From the very beginning of our relationship — the first email — I knew she would be integral to my most special day.

I could write a novel about why Fresh is best and why no other planner could ever compete, but I’ll try to be concise.

First, she put me at ease. I was planning my wedding in NOLA from a distance in NYC in only 3 months! Pretty much everybody told me I was crazy, but Fresh kept a cool head the whole way through. She kept me balanced and also kept the whole process moving (and so much FUN) and never let me stress a bit.

Second, she really stuck within my budget and never made money an awkward thing. We wanted everything to be perfect, but we also didn’t want to go into debt! She would always run numbers by me, gave me multiple great options and would also coach me through where to spend the money and where to save. The great thing about Fresh is that she has been doing this for so long that she has a ton of contacts and business relationships so that you don’t have to stalk yelp reviews to make sure you’re getting a good vendor.

Third, she can put on one hell of a party! I had a wild wedding with a wrestlemania theme and she somehow managed to make this theme not only fun but so beautiful and chic! She worked the party so that everything went smoothly. She never forced the party in any way, it all just flowed and felt natural. She ushered everyone from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner to dancing to second line all with ease and class and no cheesy DJ announcements. I think in the end, you want to have a great time at your own wedding and you want your guests to have an unforgettable time, and that’s what I got with Fresh. :)

Fourth, she is punctual and will respond so quickly to your most mundane questions and comments. We had a back and forth email chain that went hundreds of emails deep but she never made me feel like I was inconveniencing her or being ridiculous about details. She would answer by email text phone whatever, but with my work schedule email was always my preferred communication and she was always such a pleasure in correspondance. She really cares about details and clearly takes such pride in her work. She wants to make your wedding as great as you want it to be!

Fifth, she added elements to my wedding that I would have never included, but I’m so glad we did. For example, I was adamant about not having a videographer because we had such an intimate wedding I thought it might be awkward to have a photographer AND a videographer. Fresh respected my opinion but was also like “girl, you are gonna regret it!!” In the end, we had a videographer that she recommended who was great, and I am so so glad we heeded her advice! Also, she added such sweet touches and special pops of decor and excitement that totally fit our vibe (sparkler send off hello!!?).

Finally and most importantly — she really made my wedding day so seamless that I enjoyed every moment of it. My husband and I truly had the best time of our lives and were able to spend the entire time enjoying the moment. She was so organized and on top of every scheduling detail that I never felt like I was in charge of anything. I felt like a guest at my own awesome wedding. I enjoyed, I ate, I drank, I partied! I didn’t have to worry about any details because she took care of it all! Even if it were just for the benefits of day-of-coordination, I would go ALL IN on Elle R Jae Events. She made my wedding so special because she’s such a special person. If you want someone with unparalleled work ethic, impossiblely cool taste and actual *partytime* superpowers, go with your girl!!! You will not regret it!!

Fresh and her team are always very organized and easy to work with when getting an event set up. The timeline that she creates is always a very full and detailed view of the day; we always know what to expect. Our uplights are always a great fit for her designs and she brings up many clients.

Elle R. Jae Events was spot on in exectuting our exclusive holiday soirée. They helped us provide the elegant and fun-filled evening we were aiming to give our guests during this holiday fundraiser and party. From coordinating with various vendors to provide entertainment, catering, decor, photography, videography, photo booth, cotton candy stand and more, they pulled it off flawlessly.

Well first let me start by saying if I were able to give more than 5 stars I definitely would. Deciding to work with Elle R Jae events for my wedding was the best decision I could have made. My wedding was in New Orleans, but I lived in Dallas. She recommended amazing vendors. Lynetria helped coordinate everything from meetings with the bakery, florist, venue, makeup artist and photographer. I gave Lynetria my vision of what I wanted and she blew my expectations out of the water. Everything was beautiful. I could go on and on about how wonderful and easy my life was during the wedding process. It was all possible because of Lynetria. She is the bomb.com. I highly recommend her and will use her for future events!
