I honestly don't know how we could have pulled off our 2-day wedding at Broken Earth Winery in Paso Robles without the help of Jamie and Chris!!! My husband is Indian and I'm Mexican/American so needless to say we had a huge wedding filled with LOTS of people, ~300 guests. Jamie was there every step of the way making sure we didn't miss any vital details. She gave us monthly checklists that kept us on track and was always easy to reach by email, text or gchat. There were so many different elements to our wedding weekend, from the specifics of the Hindu wedding ceremony, the rental orders, the contracts for the vendors, etc. and Jamie kept track of every detail of them the entire time!

She also perfectly matched wedding vendors to us, which made the entire event so fun and so "us"!!! She arranged in-person and phone meetings with our vendors whenever we felt we needed them. All of our guests raved about her and her team during and after the receptions! We didn't feel a drop of stress during the whole weekend cause we knew her team would be able to handle anything! We would definitely recommend their services to anyone, small or large wedding!!!!

Working with CJN Event Planners was easy and resulted in a fantastic wedding day. They worked with my budget to tailor their services and price to what would work personally for us, promptly answered emails, had great ideas and suggestions, and their on-site day of planner (Chris, for us) was wonderful. I did not have to worry about a thing that day, as he was on top of it all, flexible, and just knew what all had to be done. Thank you again!

From the minute I began my wedding planning, Jamie from CJN Event Planning was there to help me with any questions that I had. Throughout my entire wedding planning process, she answered emails in a timely manner, and kept me on track with my monthly wedding checklists. On the day of our wedding, Jamie was there to help out with anything that needed tending to. She kept us on schedule for our wedding day, so that we could get to the dance floor as fast as we could (my one request was I wanted a packed dance floor throughout the night!) I would recommend Jamie to anyone that is just starting out with their wedding planning, or to someone that's just thinking about a day of coordinator. I did not realize how crucial it is to have someone like Jamie there for your wedding day. Trust me, you do not want to do this all by yourself! Thanks, Jamie!

Jamie is the best. She made wedding planning much easier and was a great help with coordination. She was always available via phone or e-mail for any of my questions or concerns. I could not imagine planning a wedding without her. She made great recommendations for vendors and had a great relationship with them. I didn't have to worry about anything the day of the wedding because she had everything under control.

I had the pleasure of working with Jamie from CJN Event Planning for my wedding on 5/24/2014 at Still Waters Vineyards in Paso Robles. I live about 4 hours away so was not able to visit much before my wedding and she made it so easy for me to plan everything from far away. She was so efficient in returning emails with all the questions I had during the planning process. She was great at setting up meetings with vendors and making suggestions for vendors to use in the area. On the day of the wedding she set up everything perfectly, and everything truely turned out better than I could have imagined! I definitley reccomend Jamie and her team to help you plan your perfect day! Thanks Jamie!

I see now why people always say that having a good wedding coordinator (definitely CJN) is so important. They are the first suggestion I make to friends who are in the wedding planning process. CJN made set-up, the day of, and tear-down run so smoothly. I loved that throughout the planning process, Jamie would send me monthly emails with updates on how things were going a list of items to help me prioritize my planning time. The best part about CJN is that they are so trustworthy that neither my parents nor I had to worry or even think twice about anything during the wedding or reception, except for enjoying every moment of the day. On our wedding day, the toasts went a bit longer than expected, which threw off our planned schedule...Jamie snuck over to me at a good moment to ask permission to change things around, and it made everything run so much smoother. There were simple details that we didn't even discuss such as moving heaters to the dance floor or making sure the car was ready to go with our luggage in it, etc. that were taken care of without me even knowing. I know there were many more things behind the scenes that made the event so perfect. I could go on and on, but the last thing to note is that I can honestly say that the most consistent comment I get from my guests regarding the wedding is, "Your wedding was the smoothest wedding I have ever been to. It was beautiful and everything was just so perfect." Thanks Chris and Jamie!

CJN Event Planning was recommended to us through our venue, Santa Margarita Ranch. We ended up going with "the works" package because we live in San Francisco and felt that it was best to have someone we could communicate with throughout the planning process. Once we picked the venue we started building our vision of the details for the wedding. My husband and I did a majority of the details ourselves including place cards, collecting vintage plates, vases, menu cards etc... We ran our ideas and plans through Jamie each step of the way. We quickly realized that while it was nice having Jamie throughout the process it was also hard to communicate our vision via text and email and was often hard to connect over the phone. We feel like the planning process worked because we were very organized and knew what we wanted but discussed multiple times that we weren't sure we would have had the wedding we imagined if we left it completely up to CJN. We ended up putting a binder together with detailed placement directions and pictures. This was mainly so that we felt good handing the details over and not stressing the day of the wedding.

Jamie was the absolute best the week of/day of the wedding. We rented a van and brought all of our DIY projects down (some not totally complete) and Jamie took them off our hands and finished them perfectly. The day of the wedding was perfect and every detail was exactly where we asked them to place it. Jamie and Chris were super nice and helpful directing our wedding party and guests in the direction they were supposed to go and making sure that everything was on time. They also packed everything up at the end of the night and put it in our van so we didn't have to come collecting everything the morning after our wedding.

Overall, we had a great experience with CJN and would definitely recommend them for the week of/day of the wedding.

I really struggled with whether or not I should get a wedding planner or coordinator, since I had done so much of the preparation and decor with my husband, but as the day grew closer, I realized I had no idea what I was doing, when to walk down the aisle, the order of events, etc. I read reviews of CJN and they seemed promising. Jamie is a really nice person, but I was disappointed in her organization and work. As a bride, I expected the coordinator to take most duties of my plate the day before the wedding. I spent hours making hanging escort cards that were different shapes and colors. I asked Jamie to hang them and we decided on a spot before the wedding. I was so disappointed to see they were laid flat on a dark piano, destroying any effect of seeing the ornaments / escort cards hanging with light bouncing off of them. I also placed the cards in boxes alphabetically and was told by guests that they were completely out of order. I wasn't demanding in what I asked of her, and this was one small but specific request that she did not deliver on. I also was heartbroken when no one was emailed about the rehearsal. It was partially an oversight on my part, but I feel like it was something that a coordinator who is running the rehearsal would help with. Looking back on an almost perfect wedding, working with CJN Event Planning is my only regret.

CJN Event Planning responded with the following comments:

Regarding the place cards-Suzi and I did talk about them and decided on the best spot to hang them. However our plan was not possible after many failed attempts. So I put into place Plan B and also asked the DJ to provide me with some lights to try to get the effect Suzi was wanting. We always do our best to carry out the wishes of the bride but sometimes we have to go to Plan B as a last resort.
Regarding the rehearsal this is something we had discussed and it was decided that we weren't going to be having a rehearsal as a lot guest weren't going to be in able to make it as they were traveling. We did do a last minute rehearsal with the key people and filled in the others on the day of the wedding with details they needed to know.

We hired CJN for our November wedding at Justin Winery. We engaged with them in April and by that time were fairly well underway with the venue and a few vendors. Our primary contact was Jamie and from the minute we hired her, she was fantastic to work with.

Shortly after hiring CJN, they reviewed all of our agreements we already had with vendors and identified any gaps in information. For the vendors we didn't already have lined up, Jamie was able to point us in the right direction, often making introductions and/or appointments for us. Jamie's guidance was invaluable. She was able to save us more than 50% on our shuttle busses because of her knowledge of the area and connections.

Leading up to the wedding, Jamie was there every step of the way for walk-throughs and check-ins. She asked great and always took careful notes, never having to ask for information more than once.

On the day of the wedding, Jamie and Chris provided flawless execution. Jamie arrived shortly before the first vendor and I hardly saw her because she was working with the vendors throughout the day. I literally didn't have to do one logistical thing on my wedding day thanks to Jamie. And, most importantly, everything was done exactly as we had discussed.

During the wedding, Jamie and Chris were in constant communication with the shuttle drivers, DJs, and venue, and communicated anything we needed to know. They kept us on time throughout the night and always gave us 5 minute warnings whenever something was coming up.

Jamie and Chris even stayed for the entire after party, which was unexpected. Thank goodness they did too because we had a party crasher! When one of our friends identified the unruly man to Jamie, her and Chris quickly threw him out! This really went above and beyond!

I can't say enough positive things about CJN. If you want a planner that will save you money; remember and execute on every single detail; and completely go above and beyond, hire CJN.
