  • Rumi and Jalpa are simply the best. We were probably one of the most difficult couples to to work with since we got engaged during Covid and wanted to get married Summer of 2021. We were really worried about finding venues and booking vendors since our friends already told us how competitive the market was for 2021. It’s been about 3 months since we signed the contract with J2R and we already have our venues and all our vendors locked up and the contracts have been signed. My fiancé and I both had some stressful couple of months at work but we were still able to enjoy the wedding planning thanks to J2R. Jalpa and/or Rumi came to every single one of our venue visits and were always ready to jump on a call when we were stuck. Apart from all the stressful planning and decision making we were still able to enjoy the process and enjoy the beautiful experience and that would not be possible without J2R. Working with them has been an absolute pleasure and I cannot wait for our big day!!

  • Journey to Remember (J2R) is the brainchild of Jalpa and Rumi. The two are absolutely fantastic at what they do. Both are professional yet very warm and easy going. They are well versed in the event planning industry, know the ins and outs, and have built close relationships with vendors. Wedding planning is extremely stressful, especially when you add the South Asian touch to it, however, Rumi and Jalpa are skilled at south asian weddings and fusion weddings as well. Due to covid-19, our stress levels tripled, but their calm demeanor, jolly attitude, and expertise really helped us get rid of the jitters! They will take you from the very beginning of budgeting, recommending vendors, talking to vendors, setting up meetings, going to venues, contracts, and everything in between to all the way upto the wedding. You know name it and they will come up with ways to assist with your demands and wants. They really take the time to understand your story/vision to curate the best personalized pl... Read more

  • I am an Event Designer specializing in fusion weddings and rent decor to my clients. When my client asked to hire us for day of coordination there was no hesitation in deciding who was right for the job! I met Jalpa and Rumi at the Waterford expo last August and so glad I did. I have had multiple consultations for their clients since then and had become well acquainted with them and each time was a great experience. As I came to them with my client, they took me on as their own. To be completely honest, I was a little scared to hand over my client and their needs, as it was our first time actually working an event together. Because of COVID and our couple living out of state, we held all of meetings via zoom meetings. I wanted to make sure we checked off every task that was asked of us. It just so happened to work out better than I could have even imagined because they actually knew my brides parents too! (Small world!) This helped us plan for the perfect fusion ceremony because they... Read more

  • Jalpa and Rumi are the wedding planners you didn’t know you needed until you start working with them! They are very thorough and full of creativity. They always knew to ask the right questions as we were planning big and small details of our decor, photographers, DJs, etc. While working with them I could totally tell that they really loved what they did and truly planned our events as their own, which I really loved about them! While they took their time to understand my needs and respected my wishes, they kept me on schedule when it came down to picking vendors. That was exactly what I needed given my busy schedule. Due to covid we couldn’t have the wedding that we planned, but they helped me find all my vendors that I used for my micro wedding. In years to come I can see myself always going back to them for all my event planning needs!

  • Rumi and Jalpa are the BEST in the business. I had another wedding planner for 13 months, and they did more in the last month before my wedding than my other planner did in over a year. They are thorough, considerate, and overall, just delightful people. They helped make sure all the details were covered, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have them helping plan my wedding. I love them both as people and as incredibly talented professionals. If you need a planner for any event, do yourself a favor and go with Rumi and Jalpa. You won’t regret it.

  • When we decided to partner with Rumi and Jalpa for our wedding, we knew they were reliable and would help us execute on the weekend of our events. However, due to the crisis around COVID 19, our relationship with J2R expanded to rethinking our events together, further planning and collaboration with vendors, and problem solving / brainstorming solutions in imperfect situations. With their guidance, we have been able to fluidly manage our wedding planning process, even with limited resources and options, and feel we are in the safest hands with them by our side. Rumi and Jalpa truly care about their clients. While they are business people and keep a supreme level of professionalism, they also have become our friends and trusted advisors throughout this planning process. There is nobody else we would rather be working with than J2R and we are so happy we chose them to plan our dream wedding. Our parents were initially hesitant about hiring planners / day of coordinators as they did ... Read more
