  • Jodi and Nicolette were wonderful! The last year and a half has been challenging for everyone and we appreciated them being able to roll with the (Covid) punches.

  • Our family needed a wedding planner. The bride was in the wedding location city, while mom and dad were in a different state. We found Jodi Raphael Events on-line, and once we met Jodi and her assistant, Nicolette, we knew we were working with experienced event planners, who would make our wedding beautiful, and as stress free as possible. Jodi started working with us a year before the wedding, taking us to see venues, and suggesting bands, caterers, florists, photographers and videographers that we should look into. The decision was made to proceed with the wedding even as it became clear that because of Covid, it was not going to happen the way it was originally planned. Jodi and Nicolette worked to make sure it was perfect, reworking contracts, connecting with the new venue, and arranging for guests to attend by video to name just a few of the endless details that they took care of. Most importantly they kept all of us on a schedule in the months leading up to the wedding and esp... Read more

  • This is why you pay for a (great) wedding planner! My daughter got a beautiful wedding despite everything having to be redone and planned for due to COVID. Plus all the "normal" in the moment things that got taken care of because they have done this a thousand times before. My daugther, wife and I got to enjoy the wedding, rather than run it. They are the best!

  • Along with the wedding, Jodi Raphael Events was a dream come true! My husband and I could not have asked for a better event planner. Not only did Jodi listen to everything I had to say regarding my special day, she surprised us in more ways than one. Jodi went above and beyond when it came to helping plan my wedding; coordinating all the vendors, making sure every last detail was perfect, and handling all the little hiccups with ease. Everything turned out perfectly, and I would not have wanted anyone else helping me along the way.

  • In these trying times of 2020, Jodi Raphael Events found a way to meet the covid requirements for my sons wedding and provide him and his new bride with the most beautiful and intimate wedding. As the mother of the groom, I was amazed at the extra details that made this day so special. I could not have asked for anything more. I will hire them again and again for future events.

  • We had such a wonderful experience working with Jodi and her team!! My husband and I had a very clear vision for our big day and Jodi was a huge part of making that vision come to life in a more beautiful and special way than we ever could have imagined. We had booked some of our big vendors already by the time we hired Jodi, but she still worked beautifully with them (even if they had never worked together before) and the entire group was truly a flawless dream team together. Jodi’s expertise, advice, and knack for design made our wedding everything we dreamed it would be and more. Both the ceremony room and the reception room looked truly exceptional - colorful, unique, beautiful, tasteful, romantic - and everything in between. It felt like walking into a fairytale. Throughout the entire process, Jodi and her team were constantly responsive, wonderful listeners, and very organized. On the day of the wedding, I did not worry about ONE THING. The JRE team did everything and I had not... Read more

    Thank you so much for your beautiful words Hannah! It was truly a pleasure working with you and your family and our amazing team to help create such a magical wedding for you. We adore the Four Seasons! Michael Ciano's (of Winston's) florals were a dreamy design collaboration! I wish you and your hubby a lifetime filled with love and all the joy that you felt on your most special day!

  • I can't say enough about Jodi Raphael! My daughter and my son-in-law had a vision for their wedding, and when it was all said and done, Jodi made their dream wedding come true. We worked as a team and Jodi was a great listener. She totally got my daughter's sensibilities and her love of color, and everything was spectacular. We had already chosen a few of our vendors before we connected with Jodi, and she worked well with them, as well as her favorite vendors, to coordinate everything. The flowers, cloths, and everything in between were beautiful, tasteful and not over the top, as per our wishes- Jodi totally struck the right balance for us. And on the wedding day, Jodi and her team made sure that we didn't have to worry about a thing. As hosts, you just want to enjoy every second and set the tone for your guests to have the best time ever, which they did. People are still talking about how great everything was, and the whole night was a total reflection of the bride and groom an... Read more

  • Jodi and her staff delivered the wedding of my daughter and her husband's dreams! Jodi listened attentively to their ideas and translated their vision into a beautiful reality. Her creativity and ability to see the big picture was perfectly balanced by her attention to every detail. Every one of her vendors were absolutely top quality and given the relationships she has cultivated over the years were all willing to go the extra mile for us. As a bonus, Jodi was a lot of fun to work with and helped to calm the nerves that can be a part of the wedding planning journey!

  • Jodi and her superstar team brought all our wildest wedding dreams to life. Like I said the second we walked into the ballroom on our wedding day for the first time, my Pinterest board became a reality and that is solely because of her extreme talent, love, passion, creativity, genius ideas and relationships! She truly made our wedding weekend (and the entire planning process) the absolute BEST for us and our families/bridal party and guests. Our hearts are forever filled with much love and gratitude for Jodi and her team! There is no doubt they are the absolute BEST in the business. Every vendor she referred- the band, the photo booth, the cake, etc. was better than the next! Truly thank you doesn’t do our feelings justice but really, we can’t thank Jodi enough! We keep scrolling through pictures, reliving the moments that we will cherish FOREVER! Thank you again, Jodi! We are truly the luckiest!

  • Aya and Jodie were excellent wedding planners. They made sure we got just what we wanted, and it was a unique wedding that fit *us* perfectly. We were under an accelerated timeline (Start to event in 10 weeks!) for a 70 person wedding and they accomplished everything we were looking for.

    We loved working with you and were so happy that we could make your wedding vision a reality. You are a great couple and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
