My husband and I hired Smitten Events to plan our destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and it proved to be the best decision we made throughout the entire wedding process! We hired them for their full package and it was worth every penny and then some. Jordan was our planner and she was calm, creative and incredibly professional throughout the entire year of planning. She made herself available via e-mail morning, noon and night, and was regularly available for in person meetings, but overall she took the reins (which is exactly what I wanted), and planned the wedding of our dreams. I had full confidence in her, but she went entirely above and beyond and handled every aspect of the planning, right down to organizing an incredible travel agent to assist all of our guests with their bookings to navigating complicated details with the hotel, across the continent with grace and professionalism. In Mexico, Jordan was there to coordinate every last detail, from greeting the photographer in the lobby, to setting up the (gorgeous!) dinner tables, to helping me pin my veil! I could not have asked for a more incredible experience and I would hire Jordan and Smitten Events again in a heartbeat for an event in or out of town.

I HIGHLY recommend having Smitten plan any event, and particularly a destination wedding which can be stressful and complicated. Jordan took every ounce of stress off my shoulders and I can't thank her enough.

We are incredibly grateful to name Smitten Events as our preferred Events Planner for the Pipe Shop venue. As soon as Devon and Jordan saw the incredible space, we knew they were a perfect fit to take it to the next level. Their abundance of creativity, high energy, plus attention to detail, ensured our first ever Pipe Shop Preview event was executed seamlessly and the result was a huge success. Our expectations were exceeded, these two are a North Shore powerhouse and we cannot wait to work with them on several more large events in the future. We couldn't have done it without them and recommend them to anyone planning an event, big or small. A+

Working with Smitten Events was enjoyable, seamless and excellent value! We hired Smitten for their Day-Of Coordination and it was one of the best decisions made during our planning process. As we solidified our vendors, we were impressed that almost everyone we dealt with had worked with Smitten previously and loved working with them. Devon knew how they conducted business and was excellent at preparing us to ask the right questions and make the best decisions possible during planning. Devon was proactive, friendly, and such a help leading up to the wedding day, ... which ended up being the stormiest day of the year, and one of the only rain days of the summer. Our wedding day was fantastic and we owe a lot of thanks to Devon as she worked quickly to move our venue and sort our all the changing details such as decor and vendor time changes. Devon and Francesca were outstanding all day, always one step ahead. We highly recommend Smitten Events if you want to live in the moment and not worry about a thing on the special day. A huge thank you to the Smitten team!

Having Smitten Events join our team was one of the best decisions me made. We hired Smitten Events for their Day of Management service and never looked back! Being very hands-on individuals, my husband and I weren't sure how relinquishing any sort of control would work for us. Was it really necessary given our personalities? We quickly learned that it was extremely necessary! We were still in control, making all decisions, but Devon with Smitten Events was supporting us right by our side the entire time. There were countless items that had not even crossed our minds. Devon was consistently proactive and was there to ensure we didn't miss a beat. The checklists were a great tool! And the endless suggestions for decorations, vendors, music etc was incredibly helpful. It is clear that the team at Smitten Events always has the individual customer in mind. A week away from the big day, Smitten Events took over communication with all vendors. My oh my was this just the best!! This put us at ease. We were able to relax and take it all in. The timeline that Smitten Events creates for the big day is so clear and easy for everyone involved to follow. Everyone, including vendors, were all on the same page and the day was able to run smoothly. The rehearsal dinner was a breeze and the entire wedding day went off without a hitch, well except for the horses indulging in the wedding cake but that adds to the memories right?!! As another reviewer noted, they seamlessly ran the show from behind the scenes. It was very obvious that it wasn't their first rodeo! Devon and Francesca were organized, resourceful, calm, keen, helpful and available .. the entire time. We could go on and on! Thank you, Smitten Events, for playing such a huge part in our special day.

We hired Smitten Events for pre- wedding consultation as well as Day -of coordination and it was the best investment we made for our wedding. I consider myself fairly organized, but I always felt like there were things I was missing. Sitting down with Jordan really put my mind at ease when it came to planning. As another reviewer pointed out, she will help you think of details you never would have on your own that really make a difference. I loved how straightforward she was, she saved me a ton of time by pointing out that certain projects I was thinking of doing would likely not have the impact I was hoping and that our money would best be spent elsewhere. She is full of great suggestions for various vendors and places you can get the best bang for your buck.
Our wedding was on a gulf island, so the logistics of importing equipment, rentals and vendors was a bit of a challenge but Jordan made sure everyone and everything was where they/it needed to be.
The day of, she was enthusiastic yet calm at the same time and it was contagious! My husband and I were really able to relax and enjoy every moment of our day because we knew Jordan and her kickass assistant Robyn were running the show seamlessly behind the scenes. Jordan and Robyn also set up all of our decor and our minds were blown at the magical setting that they created, it really was spectacular to behold.
Thank you Smitten for helping to make our wedding the best time of our lives!

We hired Devon at Smitten Events as our day-of coordinator and were extremely happy!! Hiring a day-of coordinator was some of the best money spent for our wedding because it totally took the stress off our family, our wedding party, and ourselves so that we could all just enjoy the day.

Devon was so fantastic throughout the planning process – she was so friendly and calming, she brought up details I hadn’t thought of, she provided suggestions where needed, and she helped make our vision a reality. We also added decor set up service - Devon brought all our decor to the mountain and her team set everything up beautifully for us.

Devon created a super detailed timeline for our wedding day, which she provided to all our vendors and key players. We were so grateful to have Devon take over all the details for our wedding day. The whole day ran so smoothly and we were able to soak in the magic of our wedding!!!

I would definitely recommend Devon and Smitten Events!!! Thank you so much for everything!!!

Hiring a wedding planner was hands down the best decision that we made when planning our wedding! Jordan was an amazing help throughout the entire process. Jordan kept us organized and on time, provided amazing vendor recommendations and was our huge source of support. The day of the wedding was seamless and numerous guests commented on how organized we were. Throughout the experience we emailed Jordan constantly and she always replied promptly with awesome advice. Our wedding turned out exactly the way we had hoped and we credit Jordan for a large part of that. We never would have made it through the wedding planning experience without Jordan and now that it is over we miss talking to her. We highly recommend Jordan and Smitten Events!

The wedding planning anxiety was high for me, but as soon as I met Jordan all my concerns went away. Jordan is fun, creative, and reliable and made me feel at ease. I chose Smitten Events because Jordan’s professionalism came through immediately as she made coordinating the wedding top priority instead of making me fill out a silly surveys like other vendors. She asked questions that I had never considered, and pointed out logistics that would have gone unnoticed had she not been there. I can’t prove it, but I am pretty sure Jordan even controlled the weather on the wedding day, because it was a torrential downpour the day before and beautiful on the day of. She must be a wizard! She effectively communicated with our vendors, even the ones who were a challenge to get in touch with. As someone who hates the spotlight, I was relieved when Jordan came up with strategies to focus the attention on the party and our guests. Her ideas were excellent and she really made an effort to align them with our vision.

On the day of, Jordan and Robyn were a huge asset! I honestly did not feel stressed about the timeline or anything, because Jordan had organized everything seamlessly. Their set up was on point with our specifications and we really didn’t have to worry about anything.

Originally, we were going to go without a coordinator because we felt like we could rely on family and friends to help out. Now, I am so glad we got to work with Smitten Events because they are truly professionals and helped create an event that allowed us, as well as our guests, to completely enjoy our wedding.

I am stunned and shocked at the negative review that Smitten Events received. Jordan and her team helped with the planning of the wedding and it was perfect. We, and all our guests, had a fabulous time. As soon as we met I knew that we were in good hands and felt totally at ease. Jordan has patience, grace, good judgement and incredible planning. She made sure the wedding would run smoothly and it did. There was absolutely nothing left for us to worry about.
Also, her recommend vendors were truly a pleasure to work with.

Hiring Smitten Events ended up being a devastating mistake. The decor girl, Julien, made countless errors and failed to provide several items. We requested the sign for the ceremony to say, "Pick a seat, not a side. Either way it's for a bride." Instead it read, "Happily ever after starts here..." We requested wishing rocks with the guests' names hand painted on them for place settings, and the "painting" was done in sharpie and was so horribly written that several guests didn't even know where to sit because they couldn't read their names. This list goes on and on, not to mention all the decor items that were missing entirely. Everything leading up to the event seemed perfect, but when it came down to it Devon was not even close to equipped to handle our wedding and almost every single promise she made to us was not delivered on. Not to mention how taken advantage of we felt after paying them an insane amount of money only to realize we could have done a far better job ourselves. They cheaped out wherever they could and during the event Devon was nowhere to be found at all the most important moments. Hiring SE is our biggest regret when we look back on our wedding day. If I listed every mistake they made this review would be ten pages long, so I'll just say if you want a company that can be relied on to keep their promises and deliver on your big day, I would definitely NOT recommend SE. Also, after I posted this initial review, Devon tried to get it taken down by claiming they hadn't even worked with us. I had to scan and send in our contract as evidence that we did in fact hire SE and pay them A LOT of money to screw up pretty much everything they were supposed to do. So when you see that this is one of the only negative reviews it's worth considering that Devon may have successfully gotten many others taken down if other couples didn't want to or know how to scan their contracts as evidence of working with SE.
