  • All we can say is WOW !! We were so impressed with Jennifer Matteo and her team. From the first moment we chatted I knew she would be a great fit . When our wedding venue had to be changed due to unforeseen circumstances she literally just said not to worry And that she would find us somewhere equally as perfect and she did all within 48 hours of our wedding day !! She is not only professional and super sweet , She is the true definition of what all wedding planners should be. She is talented beyond words with with an eye for all things beautiful . She asked me to trust her in the beginning and our wedding would be everything we dreamed and more. I am so glad I did because she was right !! From helping us with choosing the best vendors to giving us ideas about favors and invitations and always being available when I needed to ask a quick question via email or text . She cares deeply for her job and her clients and it shows through her work . Thanks Jennifer, Sheena and Ryann For maki... Read more

  • Jennifer and her team were a true pleasure and so easy to work with! I have a very busy work schedule and she was very accommodating to set up meetings around my work. The team made my vision in my head of my dream wedding become reality and the day went off without a flaw! I highly recommend Jennifer if you’re looking to get married with no stress.

  • So happy we went with JMEP! I knew what I wanted as far as design, but I have never planned a wedding before so I was overwhelmed when it came to the planning and logistics of the big day! I am a perfectionist to say the least, and probably would have been a BIG mess on the day of the wedding if it wasn't for Jennifer and her team. We went with "Day-Of Planning" but it was much more than that. I consulted Jennifer for random questions all throughout the process to make sure I was on the right track. The girls had multiple meetings with me leading up to the big day. Looking back I am sure everything would have gone just as smoothly, but for my sanity they were willing to walk through each and every detail with me and make all the edits I needed for the timeline until I felt 100% comfortable. On the day of the wedding everything went perfect and I was SO relaxed and in the moment (who would've guessed). So thankful to this team that did so much behind the scenes to make our wedding the m... Read more

  • Jennifer and her team were wonderful from the start and through the finish! After inquiring about her business, she immediately called me for a personal conversation to explain how her different packages work. This quick contact meant a lot to me and showed me how much she cares about her clients. She was very professional, helpful and easy to talk to. I quickly contracted with her and signed up for her Day-Of package. Most Day-Of's only work with you 30 days out from your wedding. Jennifer personally went above and beyond to help me with any questions I had regarding vendors, places to get little odds and ends and even attended my menu tasting selection at Michael's on East to help my husband and I select popular choices. As the wedding got closer, Jennifer helped with attending meetings and even running errands for me! This was so helpful because I do not live in town so she saved me a lot of time. Her Day-Of on site team member, Donna, was very helpful and effective. She helped our ... Read more

  • You can stop your search because you have found the fairy godmother of weddings! Jennifer Matteo and her team were able to turn our dreams into realities for the perfect wedding day! She made the entire process so enjoyable by being efficient, timely, and most importantly: trustworthy. Any issue that came up, I knew I could trust Jen to take care of it and make it be exactly what we wanted. She captured our style and personalities all the way down to the smallest details! We were able to truly enjoy our wedding day because we knew all of the coordinating, scheduling, and details were being taken care of- all we had to do was smile and have fun! All of our guests said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and we had a blast! We had a perfect wedding day and we can’t thank JMEP enough!!

    You were a dream bride!!! I already miss you and your mom (and Zach of course, when he made an appearance!) I can't wait to see all the images, and reflect on how special your wedding day was!

  • Jennifer and her team were so very helpful throughout the wedding planning process. We are creative on our own, so I had originally hired her as a day of only, but decided to upgrade to partial planning. Jennifer helped put all of our ideas into real life. She has great relationships with local vendors, making it easy to get things done and get them done right! Thanks so much for all of your help! Brittany & Cameron Collins

  • I was a very sick bride the day of our wedding! Donnamarie was amazing! She went above and beyond to make sure I was cooled down and comfortable. Jennifer Matteo is awesome! She helped with ideas when I couldn’t think of something. She can walk into a room, scope it out and within minutes can tell you what she pictures and I promise it will turn out amazing! Jennifer’s team is awesome and you couldn’t ask for a more professional but fun group! It was hot when we were taking pictures so of course we had to capture a fun moment with our coordinator Donnamarie!! You will not be disappointed by their work!!!

  • When I think about had we not hired Jennifer and her team I shudder. The thing we heard most from previous brides was if they could do anything different they would hire a wedding planner. I now understand why and it was the best investment we made for the wedding. She scheduled all of our vendor appointments for us and showed up to each one to assist with any decisions, without being overbearing. I emailed her a thousand times over the planning process and she always got back to me within a couple hours. I cannot imagine the day of the wedding without her and her assistant, Ryann. My husband and I worried about NOTHING that day. From the moment we started getting ready in our suites until the end of the reception we were so relaxed. If you splurge on anything for your wedding, please hire Jennifer. You will not regret it.

    Thank you so much Jenna!! You and Chris were amazing to work with, I am so glad you "splurged" on me! Enjoy your new married status!!

  • Jennifer and her team were amazing, as in I could have never ever pulled this off or dreamt it up in my dreams! From day one she was there, helping me pick out amazing vendors, and really letting them know my vision and listening to exactly what I wanted. She in incredibly organized, creative, and professional. I was so happy she was there the day of too, she kept everyone else on a timeline without being pushy at all, the day of the wedding ran smoothly, and I and all of the guests could tell. Her set up of my backyard (I was married at my parents house) was beautiful, she had the best ideas for the furniture, my flower arrangements and my sweetheart table. Basically, what I am saying is even if you don't think you need a wedding planner, you do, and you need Jennifer Matteo and her team. I wouldn't change a thing about my wedding thanks to her. She is the best wedding planner in Florida, and from what I've heard, the southeast. It was an amazing experience, thank you again ladies!

    Hello Love Bug! Aww - thank you so so much, it was an absolute dream to work with you and Ben and I would do it again in a heartbeat!! Your wedding was a once in a lifetime vision - and I adore you for being my perfect bride!

  • If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, Look no more. You have found her! I instantly felt overwhelmed with the planning process and when i first found Jennifer Matteo and her team the load really lifted off. I really swamped her with questions and recommendations when we first starting talking and boy was she FAST & RELIABLE with every response. With so many good reviews and happy couples i couldn't not choose her to help me with my big day and i'm so glad i did. I had the pleasure of Donna Marie with me the day of my wedding and we did not have to worry about one thing. My husband and I were so pleased with the outcome of EVERYTHING from morning to evening. My wedding day was Spectacular and i wouldn't change a thing. THANK YOU JMEP!

  • Jennifer was my wedding's guardian angel!! I live in Washington, DC so planning our Sarasota wedding from afar was initially a stressful endeavor. Until we got Jen on board! She was responsive and in contact with us from day 1. She met with me every time I was in town just to run through our plans and calm my nerves. She went to vendors and sent me pictures when I wasn't able to see things for myself. She worked with our florist, rentals and bakery to help make our romantic wedding vision come to life! And everything was more beautiful than we could have dreamed of. On the day of, she and her team ran our timeline like clockwork. From getting me down the aisle to herding our 200 guests into our reception, she did not miss a beat. Seeing her and her team throughout the day was instantly calming, like seeing an old friend. They had everything taken care of, so we could just have the best day of our lives! She even gave me the great idea to surprise my husband from Philly with cheeseste... Read more

  • Jennifer and her team are attentive, professional and have incredible taste! From the moment we signed, Jennifer and her team spoiled us with their time, ideas, and guidance to make this OCD bride calm down and enjoy the experience. She had every vendor set and knocking at the door, in and out, knowing exactly who we needed after she accessed our dream day and was there for all the drama with grace and solutions. Couldn't be more grateful to JMEP for making my dream wedding an actual reality and so so much more.

  • When going into this whole wedding planning process I didn’t know what to expect. All I knew is that I needed help and I needed a wedding planner. The moment I met Jennifer I knew she and I would mesh very well together. She is creative and very passionate about what she does. All I can say is she truly made our wedding dreams come true. It was like she was able to read my mind and turn my ideas into real life. Our wedding was Pinterest goals! We were so grateful to have Jennifer and her entire crew! The day of the wedding when she says “you don’t have to worry about anything” just know that she telling the truth. We were able to fully enjoy our wedding and be in the moment. It was so nice to be able to feel comfortable with people and create lasting relationships. Thank you thank you thank you! Next up... baby shower? ;)
