There is so much scope to the job description of a wedding planner that it is nearly impossible to pinpoint it to just a few tasks. Not only is a great wedding planner a visionary with a Type A personality, but they are also a counselor, friend, confidant, and go-getter.

The wedding planners on our list are some of the best in the country and ensure your special day is successful.

Shauna Karver and her team at J29 Events are true romantics, but they also don’t take life (or themselves) too seriously. Saying that they do take wedding planning very seriously and love to bring your wedding’s different design elements into a cohesive idea. J29 Events aim to earn your trust but paying attention to the details and getting to know what makes you tick. Authentic, transparent, intimate, and beautiful are words that stand behind whether you choose to use them for day-of wedding coordination, partial or all-inclusive wedding planning.
