  • I had the opportunity to work with Jenny back in September for a wedding out at the Lussier Family Heritage Center, and I must say that she was the BEST wedding planner I've ever worked with. She was very easy to work with from start to finish. She was very communicative about what she needed and what was needed to ensure that the bride and groom had the night of their life. As a DJ, I handle a lot of the "wedding planner tasks" myself from putting together an itinerary to handling the flow events during dinner and more. Jenny was on top of all of that, which allowed me to focus on doing what I do best...DJing! She kept things on time throughout the entire evening without being too overbearing and even offered to get me drinks during times of the night where it was clear that I wasn't getting out from behind the DJ booth anytime soon. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering hiring a wedding planner for their big day! Josh B Kuhl Owner, B Kuhl Entertainment

  • Jenny has a magnetic and creative personality which made her wonderful to work with. She spent time getting to know my husband and I, our family dynamics and how we envisioned our wedding which lead to her helping us create an event that truly reflected us as a couple. Jenny has connections with several fantastic vendors in the area and lead us to our DJ, venue and Photographer. She was able to match our personalities with the vendors best suited for our personalities. This made the planning process less overwhelming because we could trust these vendors were professionals and really wanted to make our day special and fun for our guests. The day of the wedding, Jenny made the whole event run smoothly by keeping in sync with the us, the wedding party, vendors, and reading the crowd. Jenny managed all the moving parts effortlessly all the while being engaging and joking around. She had this amazing ability to appear the moment we had questions or needed help. We were was in...

  • Jennifer was AWESOME. We created a three day celebration event that she coordinated flawlessly. It was obvious to us at our interview that she has done this event in a multitude of ways and would be flexible in our planning. She is creative, has great connections and delivered our events well beyond our expectations. We trusted her from the get go and she only got better. Her business maturity allows her to adapt to many people types and quite simply easy to work with. She was worth every penny and then some. She is the EASY button to wedding planning. Celebrate the planning process and leave the details up to Lavender, and trust her. She delivers on her promise.

  • How do we begin to put into words how much we love Jenny. Hiring her for our wedding was the best decision we made (aside from marrying each other, of course). We were determined to have a Madison, WI wedding but moved to North Carolina about a year before the wedding. Upon moving, I quickly realized I was in over my head planning a long distance wedding. I had met Jenny at a bridal show and decided to see if she was still available. She was! The beauty of working with her was that she could take my small vision and the scattered ideas that I had and branch out and come up with AMAZING ideas. I don’t know how she does it but she has a solution to everything…immediately. She was clearly born to be a wedding planner! She directed us to good options as far as vendors, décor, color choices, etc but made us feel comfortable telling her if we didn’t like something or were thinking of going in another direction. She took all of the stress off of us in the weeks leading up to the weddin... Read more

  • I don't know how we would have done it without Jenny and her team! She helped us coordinate not only the day of (and month of..) details, but also helped to make sure everything went off without a hitch! She is creative and organized and because of her we were able to enjoy our wedding day without a care in the world.

  • Jenny was all kinds of fantastic. Planning a wedding, with or without a planner, is hectic. What Jenny offers is a keen sense of continuity and stability throughout the process, wrapped up in a package that is equal parts big sister, intuitive designer, slap-stick comedian, and bulldog. Planning a wedding feels like you're in the middle of a tornado, but on our wedding day, everything fell into place exactly as it should. The day was seamless, joyful, and despite the preceding chaos, deeply peaceful and beautiful. It was so in no small part due to Jenny's expert guidance, attention to detail, and most of all, to the personal attention she pays each her clients. I cannot recommend Jenny Sligh and Lavender Hill highly enough.

  • Working with Lavender Hill was a wonderful experience! Jenny took our loose collection of ideas and wove them together into a fabulous wedding. She delivered exactly what we asked for and more. Her recommendations of other vendors was spot on as well. Jenny took care of all the details so that we could spend the day enjoying ourselves, not stressing out. We grew very close to Jenny and she feels like a friend, not just our wedding planner. It felt a little bittersweet when everything was said and done. Good thing we have other parties to plan!

  • We hired Jenny last summer to plan our June 2013 wedding at the Milford Hills Hunt Club. Since we live out of state, we needed Jenny to do most of our coordinating, planning, and meeting with vendors. Jenny went above and beyond our expectations. The amount of time she must have spent immediately responding to my millions of emails and text messages was endless. She was a true pleasure to work with, she was always upbeat and positive, which is exactly what I needed since it was a little nerve wracking planning a wedding hundreds of miles away. If I had a question, Jenny answered it or had a way to get the answer. She listened to what we wanted for our wedding day from the venue to the color of the napkins. She also had great recommendations for florists, djs, bakeries, etc. The week of the wedding was as stress-free as it could've been. Even when my makeup and hair trial runs weren't exactly what I was looking for, Jenny pulled the ultimate wedding planner move. She told me not to pan... Read more

  • Things started off pretty well. Jenny gave a great first impression and made it seem like she was our perfect planner. We skyped a couple of times and wrote a few emails back and forth about important stuff. As we live in Australia and were having the wedding in Wisconsin, communication wasn't the easiest. And we felt that a planner was absolutely necessary considering neither of us had ever actually even lived in Wisconsin (I just have a lot of family there). But once we paid Jenny, 10 months in advance, she went MIA. She maybe answered one or two emails over the next 5 months, apologizing, making weird excuses, and saying she was ready to keep working on it. 5 months to the wedding came along and I was still trying to pester this woman, hoping she would turn things around. Of course she didn't. She cut all lines of communication. I ended up planning the whole thing by myself and although it was a lot of work, the day turned out better than I could have ever imagined and I am so gla... Read more

  • When we first met Jenny in April, we were nervous b/c we wanted a 9/12/15 wedding. She assured us this was doable. We sent our deposit in around May 15. After 2 weeks of not hearing back, I checked in via text on May 28. I did not hear back until June 4, when a mass e-mail was sent from Jenny to her clients apologizing for her absence and listing days in June that she would be unavailable. I continued to wait to hear from her, hoping she was doing work behind the scenes. On June 28, I again called and texted since I hadn't even sent out RSVPs b/c we still didn't have a venue. I did not hear back. On July 7, I sent an urgent e-mail requesting that she contact me. On July 11 (Sat), I received a response: "Hello. I apologize for my absence. I will be in touch Sunday evening." I did not hear from her until July 15 (Wed), after calling and leaving another msg. With less than 2 months to go, I received an e-mail from Jenny, who said that her work had been affected by personal and professio... Read more

  • I won't lie, I was one of those people that thought, "Who needs a wedding planner? That's just extravagant." My fiance and I had gone through and hired our vendors without much trouble, had a pretty clear vision for the feel and look for our wedding, and generally felt on top of our game. That's when I started to think about logistics. How does "x" get set up at the wedding? Who is going to be the go to person for vendor arrivals? How should we schedule wedding day? That's when I realized, we might need some help. Cue Jenny (Lavender Hill Events).We hired Jenny as our day-of-coordinator, but really she did much more than just show up on wedding day to help things flow so we could focus on the important task of getting married. Jenny helped with our timeline, executed rehearsal, did a fabulous job helping with flowers, and was the captain of our wedding ship. She ran the day so well, but it never felt like she was taking over our celebration. She was present when we needed her to be but... Read more

  • Jenny with Lavender Hill is spectacular. We live out of state and to plan a wedding as beautiful as the one we had from far way would have been next to impossible without Jenny. She was literally a God send. It was wonderful to have someone to attend meetings, plan things and put together details for us. She saved us hundreds of dollars in trips home. She is also a wedding budget expert. She out budgeted my financial planner mother and was able to help us to bring down costs in unexpected areas. She had my mother from that moment on. She did an amazing job of making sure that all of the different personalities involved in this type of event were addressed and everyone went into the day feeling happy and went out of the day feeling even better. Her interior design skills definitely lend to her wedding planning as our reception space and decorations were somewhat of a surprise to us. She took our ideas and preferences and turned them into something even better than we could have imagined... Read more

  • It has been one year since the best day/weekend of our lives. After lots of reflection on what made our wedding weekend so special, I have come to two conclusions. 1. Don't go into this without some sort of idea and plan that makes this event about YOU the couple. Not your mother, or your mother in law, but about YOU the couple. 2. Don't do this with out Jenny Sligh and Lavender Hill Events. By the time we decided that we didn't want to continue down the path of planning on our own, we had a long meeting with Jenny. Jenny made us realize the details that we were missing with out planning and that someone like her could take our ideas, spin them with her creative yarn and produce exactly what we were planning. And if it was exactly the way we wanted it, it was usually better. Where there issues along the way to wedding day? Sure, but when you bring in over 100 guests and have multiple vendors, contracts and all the other moving pieces something is bound to happen. I... Read more

  • We worked with Jenny for our wedding. We had selected her largest planning package. Because she spent the time getting to know us as a couple, I only had to meet with a limited number of vendors. In fact in most cases the first florist, photographer, etc. fit our needs perfectly. I also didn't have to worry about the quality of the vendors because of her involvement. I believe Jenny has an amazing talent for putting together a concept. She works hard and she really cares. I could not have dreamt up the amazing, beautiful day she helped us create.
