  • Jessica and Bill were fantastic in the days leading up to our wedding and especially the day of! They were quick to answer emails, follow up with vendors in advance to coordinate for the big day, and they were in constant communication with us! We could not have pulled this wedding off so flawlessly if it hadn't been for their amazing team! Thank you so much Jessica and BIll! Photos by Erika Mattingly Photography

  • Jessica and Bill are AWESOME! As a little but of a control freak, it got so scary and hard for me to let go and delegate tasks, but Jessica was always so freaking confident and on it!!! I can’t even explain how helpful it was to have them on the wedding day. I was worry free the entire day because I knew they were ON IT! They even captured a few pictures and videos after the professionals left (later in the night) and texted me it. How freaking thoughtful!!! I totally recommend these guys!

  • Bill and Jessica are amazing! They did an incredible job setting the decor up at the church and at our venue. They made sure the day went so smooth. Jessica did end up getting the stomach flu right at dinner. They discretely told my maid of honor and made arrangements for Jessica to go home. Bill stayed through the night and cleaned everything up. I didn't know what happened until after the wedding. They handled everything very professionally and everything I asked. They were amazing!

  • Jessica and Bill made it so easy for us to enjoy our day. They really helped transform the room for our reception in 2 hours since there was an event before our wedding. I couldn't have asked for better people to make sure our day went without a hitch! Thank you so much!

  • Jessica & Bill were excellent in helping us plan our wedding! I am going through med school and needed so much help in planning our wedding since my time was very limited. Jessica understood because her brother and sister in law are in the same position so she knew how busy I was. She took the reigns, by my request, and planned our wedding and it turned out magnificent! On the day of the wedding, Bill and Jessica made sure everything ran smoothly and it was beautiful. Everything we have dreamed of! Thank you so much for everything!

  • My new wife and I hired Bill & Jessica for day of coordination. Our wedding took place in Benton Harbor, MI and they were able to drive up and stay the weekend with us to get everything ready for our big day. Both of them were so accommodating throughout the entire planning process. We were able to contact them with any questions we had and bounce ideas off them and ask them for suggestions. On the day of they did an amazing job setting up all of our decor and making sure the day went smooth. Our wedding was very successful because of them. I would highly recommend them to help you make your day stress free!

  • We originally weren’t sure if we needed to hire a day of coordinator but I’m so glad we did because I can’t imagine pulling our wedding off without them. Jessica and Bill were helpful even before the wedding started, answering questions and asking what they could do. They went to the venue ahead of time and had everything set up for us before we even got there. We had planned for our wedding to be outside, but unfortunately that day it poured all morning. Jessica and Bill set up an alternate ceremony area inside instead. As the bridal party was starting to line up, the weather cleared. Bill checked the radar and assured me that it probably wouldn’t rain anymore. They quickly redid everything they had already spent hours doing and got the ceremony set up outside in no time, with no indication that it was a problem or an annoyance for them to have to redo all their work. Anything we needed they were there for us! Thank you Jessica and Bill!!!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Jessica and her team at Forever and Always Events. I hired them for day of coordination and although Jessica could not be there, her helpers Katie and Laurel did an amazing job. The day turned out perfectly without any flaws and I know this would not have been possible without them. Professional, communicative and affordable while making a smooth wedding day!

  • My husband and I had a long engagement (2 years) so I had a lot of time to do research, but when it came down to actually starting to do everything such as hiring vendors and purchasing items, I really needed helped as I was getting overwhelmed a year out! I decided to look for a wedding planner to help with that. I live in the city, so planners here were super expensive. I am very organized and anal and knew I would still be doing a lot of the planning myself and just wanted someone to give me direction, so the prices that many planners were asking in the city were outrageous! I decided to look for someone in the suburbs and am so glad I did because I found Jessica and Bill! Not only were they reasonably priced, they were extremely helpful in both the planning process and day of! As I said, I had a lot of stuff already researched but when it came to hiring vendors and determining how much should be paid for each, I was lost! Jessica was a HUGE help in this area! She recommended our DJ... Read more

  • There is no end to the gratitude I have for Jessica and Bill. I have never been in a wedding, let alone been involved in any sort of planning. They were an endless well of knowledge and help. From finding vendors, to booking appointments, brainstorming ideas, and having my back as the bride, they were with me every step of the way. It is worth every penny to include them in your planning. My wedding would not have been what it was without these two, best decision I ever made.

  • Bill & Jessica were awesome! They came from Chicago to help us put together our wedding in Michigan. I'm so happy we found them. They are a great husband and wife team. They really did an incredible job setting up all of our decor and making our wedding day go so smoothly, coordinating with all of our vendors. Highly recommend them!

  • Jessica and Bill were AMAZING! From the time we started working with them they were so responsive and helpful with all our questions by email and phone. They helped us work through potential issues we hadn't even thought of, but that ended up being crucial. Our wedding was untraditional but Jessica and Bill just rolled with the punches and were able to provide wonderfully helpful feedback to better incorporate the things we wanted and make them seamless. They helped us set everything up the day of and helped shuffle us around for pictures and such, so we didn't have to worry about timing or keeping track of anything. They were also great about coordinating all the vendors and even our wedding party so we could have an entirely stress-free day. They were absolutely incredible and our day would not have gone nearly as well without them! One of our best wedding investments!

  • I knew I wanted a day of wedding coordinator so that we didn't have to worry about set-up, clean-up, and all the little details on our wedding day. Forever & Always Events did just that! Jessica and I had a thorough prep call a few weeks before our wedding, and she was there for our rehearsal on Thursday to walk us through how everything would go. Unfortunately, Jessica and her husband, Bill, got sick the day before our wedding, but they filled in with replacements right away. It could have been stressful, but Katie and Laurel picked up right where Jessica and Bill left off. All the details went just as planned, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day!
