Words can't even begin to describe how quickly you must call Down the Aisle Events. I contacted them back in October 2013 a month after I got engaged via their website, along with about 15 other event planners in the Central Florida area. Out of ALL of the Event Planners I contacted, Jackie was the ONLY one to take the time to call me and find out additional details about our plans. While everyone flooded my email with their generic responses and pre-priced quotes, Jackie spent almost an hour asking me about my needs, vision and explaining her experience and process. I was immediately sold! Being a professional who tends to work 50+ hours each week, I knew that i needed her help from beginning to end. I thought getting my Fiance to agree would be difficult, but after our first meeting, he was on board on signing a planner too! Jackie was personable and knowledgeable combined with being creative and talented. SHE IS THE REAL DEAL! My Fiance really let me have my way when it came to planning but felt involved in the process to his own comfort. Jackie suggested our venue, DJ, Photographer, Hair Stylist,Lighting and baker for our Dessert station. All of her recommendations knocked it out of the park!! That was integral because I really didn't have time to research each individual vendor but wanted the best for my buck. She also made me feel at ease when I utilized vendors I had come across for my cake and flowers. The key was to have everything come together seamlessly and that is exactly what happened. We hired her for our whole package and she was there for vendor meetings, reviewing contracts, design/concept meetings, tastings and just to talk me off the ledge whenever I felt stressed. Jackie truly made us feel like family not customers and I could rest easy at night because any questions or concerns I thought of or encountered, she had answers for or had already thought of solutions. When it came to our theme or motif, i had ideas on what i liked but nothing nailed down. Jackie helped my Pinterest likes turn into a complete wedding inspiration!! She had a solution for all of my questions or suggestions for the things I hadn't thought of. What really made it the best was at the end, my fiance and I had to make the decision and she was truly content in just carrying out our wishes. She advised us on pitfalls and truly steered us clear more than a few times. Overall, our wedding would have not been possible nor successful without Down the Aisle Events. Jackie and her team (we love Stephanie too!) were helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, funny and the key to making our dream wedding a reality.
