I would love to speak with you. We can get to know each other and you can let me know what you'd like to happen on your wedding day, and your expectations for the days leading up to it. From that moment on, once you hire me, I'm available to you.
The basics I can assist you with:
- Ceremony/reception search
- Site inspection (If I've never worked at the property)
- Create a detailed timeline of the wedding day
- Vendor referrals (I work with the best!)
- Oversee rentals process including delivery/pick up/ and set up (if needed)
- Coordinate the rehearsal of the ceremony
- Confirm and coordinate final details with vendors prior to the wedding day
- Oversee all aspects of your event of your day
And as much as I'm making sure everything goes as planned, I will stop and watch you walk down the aisle. And I will cry. I do it every time.
I've been in the event business since 1994, when I started Flawless Functions in Steamboat Springs, CO. I decided to skip out on the snowy winters and moved back to CA in 2000. I was a catering coordinator for 8 years, with a local catering company, where we produced over 500 events per year. When the economy slumped, the business went under, but I still continued with Flawless Functions. I feel as I have a "double major" in the event business, as I am comfortable with both catering and coordinating events. (+ my 22 years doesn't hurt!)
I live in Cayucos, CA, the "last beach town", pop. 3000. It never gets old, except sometimes I miss the mountains...(in the summer time).
I like bacon. A lot.
I live with my dog, Roo (full name CayRoo Pouncer), a husky/shepherd mix that I got at the pound, where he was 30 pounds underweight, and had never been walked on a leash. With lots of training, and lots of trainers, he's turned out to be a really good, sweet dog, though he still looks for food on the ground. I don't think I'll ever be able to break him of that.
Jennifer was a hero! We were quite the wedding and quite the group to wrangle. Nothing about our wedding was typical and Jennifer ran with it. We had more then the average vendors with 2 live punk bands, a DJ and everything else that go with a wedding. She managed us as well as a terribly run venue like a champ. We knew exactly what we wanted and she facilitated it with a comforting sense of humor and efficiency. Jennifer took the extra effort to see that on our wedding day both the groom and I (the bride) were attended to and that our needs were met. But here is the kicker, she gave us a refund!! We ended up having a ton of unexpected help the day before to set up and Jennifer sent her assistant home and gave us the refund of her time. I was blown away. Jennifer's honesty, wedding industry connections and support is nearly unheard of. If you are looking for a trustworthy, hardworking and inspired wedding/event planner Jennifer Norton of Flawless Functions is your best and only option.
