  • We hired Jen in December 2019 and started full steam ahead with wedding planning for our November 2020 wedding. Obviously in March, we had to take a step and figure out what to do next. Luckily, Jen was with us every step of the way from figuring out venue limits and coordinating with our vendor team throughout the process. From her experience with weddings from July on, we were able to have an incredibly safe and fun wedding. We had our wedding on the original date in November, and it is definitely thanks to Jen. Everything ran smoothly, and I got to enjoy my wedding fully. It was the most beautiful, perfect day, and we are so grateful to have had Jen as our wedding planner. She is worth every penny and more. Jen was very responsive in answering questions and providing materials. We always knew what we needed to get done with her awesome ToDo list using one of the many online tools she provided us. Jen listened to what we wanted and worked to make it happen. Hire Jen and Altar Eg... Read more

  • Planning an engagement with Jen was seamless. Jen remained an effective and proactive communicator all while remaining patient and encouraging. She took a small idea and formulated it into a creative masterpiece. She pays careful mind to the budget and is eager to please. Coming from out of town, Jen provided excellent recommendations and assistance with outside vendors. I cannot imagine planning such an important day with anyone else. Thank you Jen—truly a pleasure.

  • Jen is wonderful and far exceeded our expectations! Given there was so much uncertainty surrounding COVID, in addition to our venue not cooperating all the time, there was nothing Jen hadn't already thought of or asked about to clarify how it would be handled. Even when she was back to back with weddings, she always made us feel like everything was under control and ensured us things would come together -- which they did perfectly! As the bride, I was able to feel free of any stress on the day of the wedding to focus on what was most important knowing Jen had it handled. Spend the $$ on a planner.

  • Shannon at Alter Ego ushered us through the whole Covid bride process with kindness, compassion, and expertise. She was absolutely invaluable to our wedding’s success. She answered every email promptly, no matter how anxious or repetitive, and helped us understand the vision. She wrote a detailed itinerary of the day with NO detail forgotten, but helped us through the entire planning process. She really made the experience flow. We had so much fun at the wedding and reception because Shannon took care of every detail. The event was unforgettable, thanks to Shannon of Altar Ego. As a new mother of the bride, my biggest piece of advice is: hire a wedding planner like Shannon! I was able to enjoy the entire wedding weekend and actually spend time with the people I love most.

  • Shannon from Altar Ego is AMAZING! I can't even count how many times Shannon calmed me, saved me, and took care of things during our postponed COVID wedding. She literally took care of everything. I was stressed a lot of the time and she helped me so much. I would have been lost planning my wedding without her! Shannon is absolutely amazing, calm under pressure, organized, responsive, kind, and just fabulous. We love her! She even calmed me down on a Friday via text when I was worried about COVID precautions! If you need a wedding planner, I highly recommend Shannon. She is the best!!!! Thank you, Shannon!

  • The Altar Ego team was phenomenal. I worked with Shannon from February 2019 until September 2020 (postponed our original wedding date in April 2020) and she was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and supportive throughout the entire process. She coordinated all of our vendors seamlessly. I had multiple phone calls, endless emails threads, and a zoom call to ease my mind during the planning process. I couldn't have done it without Shannon. Jen Krause filled in for Shannon on my actual wedding day and she was an absolute dream to work with. She didn't miss a beat when it came to organizing our vendors, setting up, and breaking down/collecting our items at the end of the night. She coordinated all of our vendors on the day-of and allowed us to be completely hands off and enjoy the day. I didn't have to worry about A THING on my wedding night. I would highly, highly recommend the Altar Ego team. Thank you guys again!

  • Altar Ego Weddings absolutely was the key to my stress-free wedding! Jen is amazing, so kind and fun and makes the whole process easy. I truly enjoyed every second of my wedding day, and so much of it was because I didn't have to worry about anything! Jen made sure vendors were coordinated, everything was set-up perfectly, guests had all their questions answered, just flawless. Thank you Altar Ego Weddings for taking such good care of me, my family, and my friends. Can't recommend y'all enough!!

  • Jennifer is AMAZING!!! We hired Jennifer before we even had a wedding venue! I think most people hire a wedding coordinator after they have a date and venue but we loved her so much that we hired her first. She went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect. She really focused on myself and my husband to make sure we were happy. She took all my wedding worry away and allowed us to be in the moment on our wedding day which is extremely important. Not only did she make our wedding day run smoothly but she also answered all my pre-wedding questions and I had a lot of questions. We will forever be grateful that Jennifer made our day so special.

  • We booked Jen in the fall for our summer wedding. We got the unlimited email plan with month of and day of service. She was worth every penny. She gave great advice, was timely in her responses, took a phone call or 2 from my Dad (who needed to talk things out), and took so many fears and concerns off my plate. The vendors and she worked together so seamlessly, it was like I had booked them all from one fairy godmother. She's a leader in her field and well respected, which was super obvious in her leadership and professionalism. My rehearsal was quick and painless, her plans were executed and thoughtful. I loved that she told everyone to go to her with question, not me. Whew! She listened to all of my needs and made them happen. She made changes along the way and was flexible with details that changed and then changed again. I felt supported and cared for. My wedding day was perfect, thanks to Jen's attention to all of the details. I would hire her again tomorrow, she is helpful, kind,... Read more

  • I could not have asked for a better wedding planning experience than I had with Jen and Altar Ego Weddings. Jen was always accessible for my questions and responded quickly, and she had thoughtful suggestions for each step of planning! She is also well connected and respected in the wedding community--I used her referrals for the cake and the flowers and, in addition to receiving excellent service with everyone, they all told me that I had found a great wedding planner with Jen. Then on my wedding day, Jen was an invaluable resource. I felt like we had a million balls in the air, but I didn't have to do anything! Jen was several steps ahead, communicating with all of the vendors and support staff to make sure the day went off without any issues!! Jen managed set up, tear down, and everything so I could sit back and enjoy the day! It was such a huge relief to know that all of the details were being handled by someone much more capable than myself. And on top of all of that, she's so... Read more

  • Couldn’t have done it without Jen! She was professional and super helpful. I appreciated her thoughtfulness throughout the planning process and she worked with our budget from the beginning. The day of the wedding went super smoothly because she was working behind the scenes and doing everything I could not have managed without her!! Thanks Jen!

  • Jennifer Ashford and her company, Altar Ego Weddings, played a HUGE part in why our wedding day was so special. Throughout the entire planning process Jen was available via email to answer any questions and give us guidance. We were planning the wedding long distance over about a year and a half. Along the way we met Jen on a couple trips home and she was always an email or call away, which was so reassuring. My husband and I are both big planners for life in general, so we very much appreciated Jen's attention to detail, promptness, reassurance, and overall organization. It was all of this that allowed us to completely trust her leading up to and on the wedding day. We knew we were in good hands all day and that things would go according to plan with her at the helm. It was so comforting for us and our families to just enjoy the wedding day and not have to worry about logistics. Our parents were in awe of how smoothly everything ran, and we had the most special time with our friends ... Read more

  • Jennifer was ok. She did her job I suppose. She was helpful before the wedding and was patient when we were running late to the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. She help set up the tables and made sure everything was going as it should be. A few family members said she got snippy with them but I took that with a grain of salt. She didn't seem to do much during the reception, it was really all the DJ. The caterer took care of our drinks and food etc and I think even the DJ refilled our drinks once. She doesn't seem much of a people person? The whole wedding was running late so our exit was late. She knew we had to have the venue cleared out by midnight. She said that everything was on time but when I got the photos back, it says when the last picture was taken which was 11:24 so that was a lie. She didn't tell our guests that they needed to be out, she just left after everything was packed up and our family members were putting things in their car and some were just dilly dallying....
