My name is Jennifer Pearl and I am the owner of The Rare Affair. In all of my years as an Event Director, I have come to gain a certain talent for keeping a bride calm. A couple of years ago, one venue manager asked me, very seriously, "how many bad brides have you had?" I thought for a moment and said with all honesty - "none". To my surprise, she said that I hadn't been in the business long enough. I don't think so. I have been in the business for over ten years in both the corporate and private event industries. I have learned to prepare for an event thoroughly. Plan for what could happen and always be prepared for it if it does. My brides trust their event in my hands. They are relaxed, laughing and doing what they expected to do on their wedding day - enjoying a really, really great event. Because of this, I was dubbed - The Bride Whisperer. When the first vendor called me this, I thought it was silly. But then I had another and then another and well, it stuck. It became my underground nickname. To be honest, the reason for our high client satisfaction, is my staff prides itself on service. We make sure that your entire bridal party has staff tending to their every need. We explain what will happen throughout the night making sure people know where they need to be and when. We diligently keep your event on time making vendors happy but most importantly - your guests have a great time celebrating with you! I am now proud of this nickname because it shows that we know how to put those fires out - and in many cases, you'll never know whats gone on behind the curtain. But we're there. For you, your family and your guests.

Here is just a short list of the crazy, behind the scenes fun! I have been known to climb under sticky trolley benches looking for cell phones, cleaned an aisle full of ornately swirled rose petals before Mass (which started fifteen minutes after the ceremony), dug through cluttered warehouses full of props, watching a tent set up for hours - in the rain. I've walked through pastures in rubber boots measuring for dancefloors, done the dishes when the caterer "forgot" and left, watched the live tornado warning while the Bride is steps from the aisle, bandaged a knee for a guest who missed a step, ran for extra toilet paper, cleaned makeup off gowns, applied deodorant, booked hair at the last minute (literally) due to a stylist no show, quieted a child during the vows (with Goldfish, of course) and have been known to keep some doggy treats in my pockets - just in case. I am that kind of wedding director. The hotel won't do that, neither will the golf club. Sadly, your best friends won't either - they are all dolled up too! Maybe your Dad will, but he's already stressed! Let us be your runner! We LOVE it! Besides, I'm not late, snooty, over priced, side eyed or snarky - just absolutely experienced in what may come.

Your once in a lifetime, honestly fun friend who just made sure

I cannot say enough good things about Jennifer. Hiring her as our wedding planner was the best decision we made. She is so knowledgeable, she can tell you the best band, where to get your dress and everything in between but more importantly she knows how to keep the wedding party happy, how to remove stains from your dress, and how to get everyone down the aisle smiling, no matter how nervous they are. She even bandaged up one of my guests who got a cut on their leg!
She saved us way more money than it cost to hire her and she made our lives easier throughout the entire planning process. I can safely say that hiring Jennifer guarantees an overall great wedding experience.

Jennifer was able to take our vision and make it a reality! She referred us to some great vendors, manage our massive bridal party and the many personalized details of the planning process. If I were to describe Jennifer, she would be the perfect bridesmaid, loyal, honest, and a dedicated friend who understands the significance of the little things. The wedding was beautiful and all of our guests were amazed with the creative details and how seamlessly the evening transpired. They kept asking who Jennifer was, following with the comments like "She is amazing!" and "What a firecracker, she doesn't stop!" It was truly an affair to remember.

)We contacted her for assistance as a day-of-coordinator, but she provided much more than that. Through her professional contacts and business, we were able to obtain wedding invitations, chairs, and gifts for ushers/best man/matron of honor/reader at a substantial discount. But her services as a coordinator were the best value of all. Every meeting that we had with her was so useful and helped us feel comfortable that we were moving forward and meeting deadlines.

The services received by Jennifer Pearl was amazing. On this very special day for a bride, I will say that the services went beyond just a service. The Rare Affair goes out of their way to make everything a success. Though our services were not a full all out wedding, everything was done as we expected which was great. We had no worries even up to the last minute details. Thank you so much.

I have nothing but the best things to say about Jennifer and her assitant. They were wonderful, one step ahead of me the whole time. Her timeline was perfect, the whole day ran smooth. I could just sit back and enjoy my day knowing that everthing was being taken care of. She was very professional and sweet and had the best advice. I would hire her again in a heartbeat for other functions.

Thank You Jennifer =)
