After meeting with Jodi once, I knew she was the coordinator for my now-husband and I. She put my mind at ease with all that goes into planning. She was always there to answer my questions. Leading up to the wedding, Jodi pulled everything together and allowed us to have a completely enjoyable wedding day! She was professional, kind, and diligent. Highly recommend!

We hired Simple Soirée to be our day of wedding coordinator and it was one of the best decisions I made! We wanted to have a rustic, outdoor DIY wedding and I became overwhelmed with all the final details especially in the last couple of months leading up to it thinking about how I was going to pull it all off. That's where Jodi came in. She met me on site about six weeks out from my wedding date and helped to see my vision, made phone calls to all the vendors to finalize arrangements, helped lead and facilitate our rehearsal and ultimately helped to orchestrate the entire wedding! I didn't worry about one detail on my wedding day, I knew everything would come together beautifully with Jodi and her assistant there. I would highly recommend Simple Soiree to any engaged couple , but especially to someone who is trying to pull off a DIY wedding! Thank you to Jodi for her professionalism, attention to detail, thoroughness and vision! Working with you was AWESOME. My day could not have been more perfect and I am so incredibly thankful for everything you did!

Simple Soiree planned our wedding while we were living in an entirely different state (we got married in PA). Jodi provided so much guidance and a vision for the wedding that lined up with mine perfectly. The ceremony and reception were purely magical to walk into. With it being so hard to communicate over the phone and email, I didn't know how well my ideas would be explained, but Jodi and her team made our wedding more beautiful than my husband and I could have imagined. She also was able to get us an amazing photographer that was booked up for the rest of year, and we are so grateful for that. Simple Soiree is incredible!!

I could not have imagined a more perfect wedding day and that is all thanks to Jodi & her team! They go above and beyond to make everything the day of the wedding run smoothly. She was technically my "day of planner" but spent lots of time discussing the big day months before hand, visiting the venue with me, and making sure all my vendors were on the same page. After seeing how detail oriented she was at our venue walk through I knew that I could give up control (which is not always easy for me) and trust that she would take care of everything on the day of the wedding. She truly made it a relaxing, happy, STRESS FREE day for me. Couldn't have asked for anything better! I would highly recommend using Jodi and her team!

I would highly recommend Simple Soiree to any bride. Simple Soiree did an excellent job helping to organize and plan my wedding. Jodi and her staff were exceptional under extreme circumstances (pouring rain all day) to keep everything under control to create a beautiful memorable day. Her team adapted the layout and timeline on the spot to create an event that moved forward as if that was the original plan. Her recommendations for vendors were perfect. We had so many compliments on the food, flowers and layout. Her coordinating services the week before and on that day helped immensely to relieve my stress and allow things to run smoothly. Jodi and her team went above and beyond to make our special day extraordinary!!

Jodi Bukowski and Simple Soiree did an absolutely fantastic job for our wedding. We required day-of coordination, but a bit more as well in terms of logistical advice and planning, but with a couple challenges: my wife and I got married at a venue that was two hours away from where I lived, and my wife working in California at the time. Jodi was supportive of all of these challenges, and was extremely flexible in helping us plan out the logistics through some evening Skype sessions to accommodate the time difference for my wife. In addition, we had some communication issues with our venue, and Jodi helped us work through them and strategize around them. We made several joint trips to the venue and she joined us for most of them. In moments of stress, the conversations we had with her reduced it and allowed us to come up with good contingency plans. She went above and beyond in those services.

When it came to day-of coordination, Jodi and her team kept everything running smoothly, made sure the ceremony was timed correctly, and coordinated the vendors so we didn't have to think about much. One hiccup occurred before right before cocktail hour: we had tasked a friend to deliver mixers but there was some confusion about it, and the cocktail hour started before they could be delivered. Jodi and her team were on it, and were just about to make a last minute run to a local store to purchase backup mixers when our friend arrived with them. The care and attention to detail, as well as the absolute focus on making sure our wedding went smoothly, was fantastic. We highly recommend Jodi and her team for your wedding.

Jodi was just amazing to work with! During our first meeting she helped us feel comfortable and excited. Her focus wanted to be on us NOT having to focus on the details--she made she that was her responsibility and followed through 100%. We came with some ideas but she was able to work them to make it above and beyond expectations.

I don't know how I would have pulled off my wedding day without Jodi and her team! My venue required a day-of coordinator and I did not realize until I started working with Jodi how much I needed her! She offered such great advice and was very flexible and accommodating with my schedule and needs. In the weeks and days leading up to the wedding she took care of contacting all of the vendors and coordinating arrivals, etc., it took so much off my plate. My day would not have been nearly as perfect as it was without Jodi making things happen that day!
