Our perfect fall wedding with Jane Hammond Events - An Eventective User from San Francisco

There truly are no words that can express my gratitude, appreciation and love for the entire Jane Hammond Events Team for creating the most incredible night of our lives. My husband and I, and our family, and our friends, and our wedding party, and our guests (and probably guests dogs cousins) have been raving about flawlessness of our wedding; all thanks to Naomi and the JHE team. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - THIS IS THE DREAM TEAM FOR ANY EVENT PLANNING, especially weddings, I have nothing but AMAZING things to say about how they created an event that exceeded all of our wildest dreams for our special day. My husband and I were moving across the country for the year leading up to our wedding, and because of this big move we decided to book a planner 12+ months from our date. With living on the other side of the country during our wedding planning process, we knew we needed a team to help us. Jane Hammond and her Sr. Event Manager; Naomi agreed to meet with us to discuss our vision, our timeline and their availability. Despite their busy calendars with more pressing events, they were welcoming to us and our wedding that was more than a year out! My husband and I were already so impressed by their responsiveness and client-first attitude before the meeting that the in-person consultation felt more like a formality and we were thrilled to be working with them! Naomi was completely on top of everything for the rest of the planning process. She understood our vision from the start, even though some of our ideas were unique to us; a surprise Chambong toast. We wanted a modern, classic, tropical inspired wedding in the heart of San Francisco, and Naomi shared recommendations for additional vendors (DJ, Lighting, Florals, etc) and we booked all of them! Naomi took care of all the details of planning, including handling almost all communication with our venue and the vendors we had booked. That left only the fun part of planning to us! We worked with her to decide on food and decor, and she completely insulated us from the difficult chore of logistics. She also worked around our schedules to make everything as convenient for us as possible, even meeting with us during busy holiday times when we were in town visiting with family. We ended up having a great time planning our wedding, and with Naomi keeping us on track, we managed to get through the whole process without feeling stressed or panicky! If any issues came up the week leading to our Wedding or on the day, we didn't hear about it. Whenever I saw her she seemed to be busy but calm, in complete control and with a smile for everyone she passed. Our parents adored her, and kept talking about what a great energy she brought to our wedding! I can't recommend Naomi and The Jane Hammond Events Team highly enough. Hopefully this long review conveys just a small part of how much my husband and I appreciated the entire team.

Jane's really nice with weddings. We went through this entire ordeal about choosing a caterer. There were 2 other caterers and they had some attributes but not the great review Jane's catering service gets. I was never disappointed by their catering. She planned out an entire array of food for our wedding successfully and without doubt. And it's incredible how well much they paid attention to detail. One of the guests was a vegetarian and they had a full table for vegetarians. What great lengths they go to. Their meetings to set everything up were also pleasant. I remember being having to go to one of these "caterer meetings" and it was awfully boring. Not here, Jane was very helpful and she definitely knew what I wanted for this wedding. They also had some great ideas which I honestly would have never thought about. They worked hard and created a personalized menu designed for them. Their meals were beautifully prepared and superb. Not a single imperfection in their myriad of salads. And what great lasagna. I absolutely loved the lasagna they served. Not to mention this was all done on a meager budget. The entire budget has gone other things in my wedding but on such a small sum we got the greatest event catering possible. Jane's team tried to make this the least stressful thing ever. They have great people to work with and are a breeze to do business with. If you have a lot of choice in catering, Jane Hammond won't disappoint you.
