Kristen Jensen from Sugar Rush Events is by far the BEST. EVER. I feel so fortunate to have been able to work with someone who designed a beautiful and original wedding. Kristen listened to our ideas, and came up with a wedding that blew everyone away. She wasn't afraid to push me to think outside the box, but still remain in my comfort zone. I greatly appreciated her ability to take my ideas, but make them feel like I wasn't just copying a wedding I had seen, but was creating a design that would be unique to us. Walking out and seeing the tables, the decor, the flowers, and the way that everything came together just as she promised was one of my favorite moments of the day.

Kristen always is available to listen, and make you feel at ease. I was never stressed when planning the wedding because I had Kristen. She is the best support team you could ask for.

Suggestion: Add on the Design (if not more). Most sites will require a Day-of-Coordinator, but I suggest you add on the design component...take full advantage of all the skills and ideas that Kristen has to offer.

The only mistake you could make when planning your wedding is not hiring Kristen.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Kristen Jensen! Her vision and creativity are inspiring and her positive outlook and enthusiasm are contagious. She is a creative genius who listens to your ideas and brings them to life in ways that are better than you can imagine. The first time I spoke to her, I knew she was the perfect planner and I couldn't wait to work with her. I left every meeting, phone call or even email exchange feeling excited and energized about my wedding and smiling from ear to ear. I don’t know how she does it, but she makes even the most mundane details fun and exciting. She took my limited vision and created the perfect day. I can honestly say that NOTHING fazes this woman and she can solve any problem or challenge that comes her way. She is incredibly patient (sitting with me for hours picking linens with nothing but enthusiasm), amazingly creative (she transformed my venue into a modern fairy tale – better than I could have ever imagined), professional (she was on top of every detail, answered every question and I never worried about anything) but above all she is SO MUCH FUN! The day of she kept me calm, completely stress free and made me feel like the most important person in the world. She covered every detail and was there for my entire family – ensuring everyone was happy and having fun. She went above and beyond on every detail and I loved every second that I got to spend with her during the planning process. She made this incredible time in my life even better and anyone who gets to work with her is lucky to do so. I am trying to find another event to host, just so I can work with her again!

Kristen was amazing! My wedding venue was in Pleasanton but I was planning my wedding from Chicago. I don't know how I could have done it without Kristen. Even though I hired her to be my 'month-of' planner, she was so incredibly helpful throughout the whole planning process. Her experience and industry knowledge made planning so easy! My guests and I had a blast at our wedding and it wouldn't have been possible without Kristen's help. She even had to deal with our crazy bridal party and she did it with a smile on her face. We're coming up on our first wedding anniversary and we still can't stop reminiscing about how much fun we all had! If you're looking for a planner, you're making the right choice by choosing Sugar Rush Events!

Kristen Jensen is the best wedding coordinator. Ever. I cannot believe how seamless and enjoyable the planning of our wedding was. Kristen’s experience in the industry was evident from the first time we met with her. She listened to our ideas and the vision we had for the wedding, and truly made it come to life. We got married at a venue that did not have a lot of traditional wedding amenities, so it really took a lot coordination to get all of the vendors on the same page. She did this, while making our wedding look and feel exactly the way we wanted! Because she has so many contacts in the industry, she knew just who to recommend and where to get the best prices for rentals, etc. This knowledge was so valuable! Kristen has a great personality and works well with all types of people: the staff at the venue, the multiple vendors, friends and family members, and most importantly, the bride and groom. She is honest and straightforward, and will give you appropriate advice based on your budget. I was most impressed with the way she handled everything the day of our wedding. She handled everything that day. Looking back, I cannot imagine how stressed I would have been if she was not there. I was at the venue the entire day of the wedding, in the bridal suite getting ready with my bridesmaids. Kristen came early, and was onsite almost the entire day, too. I know there were a hundred different things going on, and I felt so relaxed having her there to deal with it all. It was so nice! When my groom and I saw how she had transformed our venue into the wedding of our dreams, we were both at a loss for words. It was incredible! She took all of our ideas, and made them better than we could have ever imagined. We got so many compliments on our wedding. I will never forget it! Thank you, Kristen!

Despite being on a very limited budget, Kristen Jensen helped to make our wedding absolutely amazing! We used her services primarily to give us advice on vendors & such and to do the set-up for our reception at Servino Ristorante. The site looked gorgeous and the site staff mentioned how easy Kristen was to work with. It was so nice to be able to enjoy our day and know the behind-the-scenes work was being expertly taken care of!

P.S. She did this while 9 months pregnant too!

Kristen is amazing. You simply must hire her. No really.

She has this fun, lively personality but the business sense you want with a coordinator. I hired Kristen for my DOC but she was so much more!

My wedding was perfect and went off without hitch because of Kristen! The on site coordinator was atrocious and Kristen handled her and every detail (being 8 months pregnant to boot) with the utmost style and grace. I would pay her 5 times the amount now knowing what she's worth.

Kristen and I spoke via email and phone weekly at minimum for nearly the year before my wedding, she handled my rentals, gave me recommendations for vendors and dealt with me through all my bridal ups and downs.

She is fantastic and well worth it.

I could not have done it without Sugar Rush Events! Kristen Jensen was so responsible, creative, sweet, outgoing...and became a really great friend to me. She helped me keep my mom together (sorry mom!) as well as the entire wedding. Everything was amazing and exactly as I planned it to. She exceeded my expectations. She worked with my budget and gave me more than I event anticipated. Honestly, everyone should use Sugar Rush. She set my mind at ease and I knew everything would be taken care of. I actually was calm and relaxed on my wedding day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
