Jove Meyer, founder and principal of Jove Meyer Events, hails from a small beach town in southern California. He made his way to New York City to attend Columbia University, but rather than pursuing a law degree he instead followed his passion design, details and planning.

Jove and his team specialize in creating personalized weddings that are a reflection of each couple's unique style, personality and relationship. He believes in a relaxed approach when guiding the planning and design process, creating a fun and stress-free experience. Jove Meyer Events is known for collaborating with some of the best vendors around to create fresh and beautiful events.

Jove Meyer Events was born after Jove planned and designed his best friend's wedding in the summer of 2008 and loved every minute of it. In the years since, The Knot has called him a Wedding Wizard and listed him as one of the top 100 wedding pros! He has also won the Couples Choice Award from WeddingWire year after year. Jove’s work has been featured in magazines and blogs worldwide: Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, Refinery29, Marie Claire, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake, Ruffled and many more.

Jove Meyer is the host of the popular podcast Weddings-ish with Jove! He is the creator of the “Totes Getting Married” tote bag and the founder of the NYC Planners Dining Club. In addition to planning and designing, Jove has spoken at events throughout the country, most recently at AmericasMart Design week in Atlanta.

Jove is a passionate advocate for marriage equality. He co-taught the first LGBT wedding webinar in partnership with The Knot and spoke about the truths of gay marriage at The Knot Workshop in Atlantic City. Jove donates a portion of his tote bag proceeds to support this cause. Read less

I will start by saying, my husband and I could not have executed our wedding without Jove (and his team). He was extremely valuable in all aspects of the process, from sourcing vendors to having him and his team ensure that the actual wedding day proceeded smoothly. Jove's professionalism and attention to detail is unmatched, and honestly, he just gets stuff done. On top of that, he is a very nice guy, easy to work with, and responsive. I would definitely recommend him to anybody who is either looking for a wedding planner or is on the fence about using a wedding planner.

Jove was a joy to work with, always responding with good humor and equanimity to whatever issues arose as we planned our wedding. In truth, these "issues" were always minor, due in no small part to the professionalism of the excellent vendors suggested by Jove. On the actual day, we had to do nothing more than show up. Jove coordinated every element of the wedding, one that was characterized by more than one of our guests as "magical." (They seemed to really mean it!) We couldn't have done it without Jove--or we could have, but really, really badly--and we'll be forever grateful for his services.

Jove was the best wedding planner we could have imagined. He was focused and professional every step of the way. He was as present when we were selecting vendors months ahead as he was while coordinating speech timing during the wedding reception. It was through him that we discovered our band, caterer, and florist, each of which were unforgettable parts of the best day of our lives. He is obviously also kind and incredibly knowledgable, and clearly passionate about what he does. The venue was a big, DIY-style room, and Jove had a well of insight at virtually every turn to help us pick the right vendors for our wedding, from tablecloths to dessert.

Moreover, he cares about the people he works with, shown by his relationships to many of the vendors he collaborates with. He went the extra mile to cater to our wants and needs on multiple occasions. We had a lot of family and friends coming from out of town, staying in the middle of New York City for the first time. Luckily, we had Jove to help ensure smooth sailing, allowing us to enjoy celebrating with our guests over the weekend.

We can't recommend working with Jove enough, and will always be grateful for all the hard work he put into our wedding day.

We worked with Jove for roughly two years (long planning period to minimize anxiety). That is quite a bit time to spend with an ostensible stranger. Let alone someone you're trusting to plan one of the most personal milestones of your life; you need them to give you accurate advice, use your time effectively, exhibit compassion for the emotional bits, trust that they understand your tastes even when you can't fully articulate it and most importantly have your best interests at heart. I couldn't really ask all those things of my own mother. Further, neither of us had ever planned or been involved with the planning of a wedding, so we were pretty green. Our experience with Jove was less like having someone in our employ, but more like having a very knowledgeable friend at our side for the big decisions.
There are a LOT of moments I could write about that caused me and my husband to turn and say "THANK THE LORD WE HIRED JOVE," but to spare you a novel I will say the two biggest examples are:
-EVERY time we met a new vendor that Jove recommended we always instantly liked them. And their work always spoke for itself. There was none of this "they're a jerk, but a GENIUS" nonsense that we often experience in NY. They all produced top tier quality and were so wonderful to be around. Jove is great, but the team he surrounds himself with makes him worth his weight in gold.
-Day of the wedding. I'll say it again. Day. Of. The. Wedding. I've have never seen someone so on his game before. We literally didn't have think about anything other than just enjoying the day. And enjoy the day we did. During the event itself he was like the wind. He helped me plan some special moments, made sure my husband, my in-laws, my parents and I always had drinks. Accommodated an un-RSVPd guest with a full dinner seconds before people were sat. And also was just a general good presence to have around.
Hire him and trust that you made the best decision of the whole process.

Jove is the best. Period. From the day we began planning until the moment we left the wedding, Jove was on top of everything, and I never for a moment felt like anything went unaddressed. He made what could have been the most stressful day of my life run flawlessly, and even watched my 5 year old so my wife and I could dance!

You're amazing Jove. Thanks for everything.

We hired Jove for our "day-of" planner and couldn't have been happier. I knew after our three hour prep meeting (when we made the most glorious and detailed schedule I have ever seen) that we made the right choice in Jove. Jove and his assistant made sure everything ran smoothly on the Big Day — wrangled our roaming friends and family, tended to specific decorative elements, etc. — with class and charm to boot. Our wedding was magic and we couldn't have done it without Jove + his team. Hire him!

Jove is very on top of things - he's super organized, knows his stuff and has a timeline that he will not lose track of. He is very friendly but can be tough as well, with everyone, to get the show on the road. We were very happy with how our wedding went, and I'm sure he did a ton of behind the scenes work to make sure it went as smoothly as it did. I would definitely recommend him. He was our "day of" wedding planner and did a fantastic job.

If you want a wedding planner who's going to make the process easy and fun, you can't do better than Jove. We had such a blast planning our wedding with him, from the initial meeting over cocktails to our final session over wine. We came to him with a really half-baked vision and he brought it to life, recommending vendors that were exactly in line with our style. It was just so much less stressful choosing vendors when I knew that Jove had worked with them all before and could guarantee that we would love them. I completely trusted his opinion the entire time and it paid off in the most perfect wedding imaginable. We had a somewhat difficult situation (a venue with a coordinator who wasn't happy we hired another planner) but Jove handled the situation with grace, diffusing tension and making sure there were no hard feelings on the wedding day. During the reception, he was amazing at making sure we had water, food etc. and keeping guests away from us when we wanted a little time for ourselves. I can't thank him enough for all his help and would whole heartedly recommend him to others!!

We worked with Jove and signed on for his Partial Planning package for our wedding this June, and we couldn't have been happier with the decision. Getting married in a raw space in Brooklyn, my husband and I were really concerned about all of the moving pieces for the day, and how the wedding would come together in the end. At every step, having Jove's help and counsel assuaged our anxieties. He helped us choose and manage four of our most important vendors and Jove's impeccable taste and wedding expertise was clear throughout the process! He was patient with many an annoying e-mail and answered all of my questions no matter how minor. Jove's team was also stellar on the day of - everything went off without a hitch and the space looked beautiful. We are still getting compliments from our family and friends about everything! Would highly recommend Jove and his team!

Jove Meyer is the most amazing event planner I have ever encountered. From our first intro meeting 15 months ago, Jove set the tone for warmth, fun, beauty and incredible organization...without any of us feeling the stress or pressure. I honestly have never worked with someone who is both extremely professional and also inclusive and calm.

Jove never misses a beat. He masters the major framework and every little, insignificant detail from initial planning until the last guest leaves the wedding.

The best part about Jove and his intern, Sloan, is that they made my daughter, her fiance and me feel comfortable, supported and truly pampered at all times. I don't know how they did it, but the entire wedding process was joyful for all of us.

Jove also has impeccable taste and takes his lead from the bride. He knows how to step in and step back (he never steps back, but no one realizes he's executing every move flawlessly).

Work with Jove. It's as far from "work" as you'll ever experience.
