We hired Loreen as our "month of planner" for our 10/10/15 Wedding at Promontory Point. From our first meeting I had an instant connection with Loreen! She is VERY organized, detail oriented and handles every situation with a can do attitude. She also has great taste which made her an excellent person to bounce decor ideas off of. If you want a stress free wedding day (month) hire Loreen for your special day!!!

Jaci at Clementine is so helpful and sweet! I felt like we clicked right away. She has helped me stay sane during the planning process :)
Plus, she is so well-organized! And, smart, kind, inviting... the list goes on.
I do think that they are a little pricey - but I know it's worth it for total peace of mind on the wedding day! :)

I'm really not sure what we would have done without Clementine! We worked directly with Loreen and she was the BEST wedding planner! From the very start until the end, the level of communication, follow through and attention to detail was phenomenal. With all of the nerves and emotions that are involved in the planning and are present on the big day, Loreen was by my side supporting me all the way through. I knew on my wedding day everything would be handled so that I could just enjoy my wedding and not have to worry about the details of the event. Loreen is also an amazing artist and she helped us create specialized items for our wedding that added a beautiful, personal touch. Don't look anywhere else! :)

Where do I begin!!? It will be hard for me to put into words how much I love Clementine Custom Events and Julissa Ijaola but here it goes. Julissa is one of the most incredible people I've ever met. She is also the most talented person I've ever met. She will take the time to listen to you and what you have in mind for your dream wedding and then she will literally bring it to life. From the moment of your first meeting you will feel how hard she wants to work to make this your perfect day(and your fiances). She will be able to work with all the different personalities in your family and be the sweetest most professional person with each person. The most important thing to me was that I wanted to get along with my wedding planner because you will be working closely with her through the whole process and to say I enjoyed working with is an understatement, now that the wedding is over I actually miss her. If you want to give yourself the greatest gift for your wedding journey, hire Julissa and Clementine Custom Events. Your dreams will come true, your stress levels will significantly drop(she actually took over my anxieties for me), and you will have fun! Look no further :) Good luck, and happy wedding planning!

The best money spent on our daughter's wedding was in the hiring of Clementine Custom Events. My blood pressure decreased immediately when I first walked into Kelly's tidy office to participate in a conference call with the bride who lived out of town. Kelly walked us through a list of decisions that needed to be made, offering sage advise and counsel throughout.

I didn't see Kelly again until 45 days later when she managed to run an efficient rehearsal including plans A and B (we went with Plan B due to weather). On the day of the wedding she kept us all on schedule. I will be eternally grateful to Kelly's assistant, Anna, who got some misplaced table numbers to where they needed to be.

These ladies were truly a class act. My husband called it insurance, I called it peace of mind. Either way, we were glad to have them on our team.

Kelly put my husband and I at ease as she joined us prior to our wedding to help us determine all of the big (and small details) that needed planning. She is friendly, warm, and knowledgeable. I am so happy we had her to know what questions to ask, because without her expertise there would have been so many unexpected bumps in the road we never would have considered. She was friendly, open, and ready to deal with any surprises that inevitably come up on the day. I especially appreciated that she coordinated our vendors, went with me to our final run through, and took care to distribute all flowers to our wedding party and family. Her hand in these tasks saved me a lot of time and worry on a day that is supposed to be about joy and fun! Our timing was seamless the entire day and my husband and I are were able to fully enjoy our wedding without a worry or a problem coming our way. The only negative I can say was the plan we made for cleaning up and packing decorations after the wedding wasn't followed which caused some precious party time for my parents to be spent cleaning up instead of dancing the night away. This most likely could be avoided with more direct conversation about the venue and event planning team's expectations about clean up.

Loreen Hospodar was such an asset to my wedding planning experience. From vendor recommendations, to elegant touches to the reception, and overall professionalism when small conflicts arose I can honestly say I couldn't have done it without her. Her artistic flare to simple things such as signage and frames gave my classic wedding reception the décor it needed to be uniquely mine.

My husband and I got married on 7/11/15 and had an INCREDIBLE experience working with Clementine Custom Events-- specifically Julissa. We had debated about getting a day-of coordinator for awhile, and as the day got closer, we decided to go for it. We met with one other coordinator outside of Clementine, but as soon as I met with Julissa it was clear she was a perfect fit for us! At the get go, Julissa was super easy to get along with and incredibly organized. Julissa attended the walk through at our event (and was able to ask all of the questions I didn't even know we should ask!), organized deliveries and vendor set-ups, and made sure everything ran smoothly. She even met me a few days before our event so that I could hand off all of our supplies! On the day of our wedding, Julissa was absolutely incredible. When our first look location (a rooftop at a local hotel) called me to tell me they could no longer accommodate our first look (30 minutes before we were scheduled to be there), Julissa worked her magic and somehow made it happen. All of our vendors (and the wedding party!) have repeatedly mentioned how great working with Julissa was, so we know we're not the only ones that loved her!

Truly, I can't put in to words just how happy I am with our decision to utilize Clementine for their day-of coordinating skills, and I'm so thrilled that Julissa was able to help make our big day such a successful and fun event. I'm a little bit sad our wedding is over, simply because we won't be able to work with her anymore! If you're on the fence about paying for a day of coordinator, I would 100% go for it, especially if you can work with Clementine Custom Events. It was, hands down, the best decision we made in the entire wedding planning process and we're so happy we had the opportunity to work with Julissa!

We used Kelly for full planning services for our wedding and I cannot say enough about her and her company. Kelly is thoughtful, creative, excited, and organized. She made the process both enjoyable and easy. From the moment we walked in her office, I could tell that Kelly easily brings together a vision, as Clementine is subtly reflected throughout her office space. Kelly listened to our out-of-the-box ideas and found ways to make them work for our wedding. I felt she went above and beyond, both during the planning process and the day of. She met with the florist when we could, carried two pairs of shoes around for me on the big day, and was there to support us throughout. Kelly has clearly worked with many people in the industry and can suggest vendors based on your budget and personality. We feel lucky to have worked with Kelly and highly recommend her and her company.
