the approach

Events The Way You Want Them.

If you ask any LVE clients my most said phrase, they'll tell you this:
"You don't have to do anything."
I live and stand by that. I have found that there is an elegance to marrying the integration of traditional etiquette with throwing the rulebook out the window. Whether you are looking for innovative design, over the top culinary selections, or out of the box entertainment, I don't live inside the confines of the norm when it comes to any event. My only rule is that your spirit is at the heart of it and that it's shown in every intentional detail.

Her creativity, style, and attention to detail has become the staple essence of La Valse Events. Having worked at some of South Florida's most sought after venues and with outstanding vendors, her experience equips her to guide each client with a lens only a pro can offer. 

a peek into LVE

La Valse Events is the stuff of dreams.
I consistently feel honored by every couple that puts their trust in me and that this is how I get spent my days.

For the majority of my life (what feels like a past life now), my dream was to be a professional ballet dancer. The elegance, grace, and athleticism behind the art that is ballet still inspires me in my current career. That's where the name La Valse Events comes from. La Valse is French for The Waltz.; the traditional first dance at a wedding. While my day-to-day looks different than that of a professional ballet dancer, I still spend my day with choreography. Only now, it is your incredible events that I have the honor of choreographing. 

In my free time, you can catch me doing a number of things. Most of the time, I can be found reading fashion and travel magazines for inspiration or reliving the comforts of my favorite classic romance movies with a glass of red wine & bowl of popcorn.

I am forever grateful that you're here & I can't wait to meet you.

Jess is unbelievably good at her job and the world needs to know how wonderful she is. First, Jess is incredibly kind, patient and honest. It was clear from our first meeting through to our wedding, that her only concern is making her couples' dreams come true. She took the time to really get to know us, and because of that she was able to truly hone in on exactly what we were looking for and provide open and honest feedback in the process.
She gained our trust very quickly.
Most incredibly, she was able to manifest our vision of hodge-podge ideas into truly the most amazingly beautiful ceremony and reception we've ever attended. This also extended to not only creating something gorgeous and selecting the best vendors, but being exceptionally thoughtful about our budget.
We feel eternally grateful to have worked with something as truly exceptional as Jess and couldn't thank her any more for our perfect day.

Having Jess plan and design our wedding was an exceptional experience! She thoughtfully combined my fiancé and I’s cultures into a beautiful celebration. Jess reassured us throughout the entire process and was able to troubleshoot any unexpected circumstances along the way. Jess worked with both of our families to bring everyone's ideas into fruition.
Through her research and connections, she pulled together a stellar group of vendors within our budget all dedicated to their respective craft. This made our wedding day extra special.

You can always count on Jess to bring a stylish edit to every decision made in the wedding planning process.
We are forever grateful, Thank you Jess!

"Her talent, professionalism, and genuine warmth made our wedding day truly unforgettable"

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Jess at La Valse Events to coordinate not just one, but two extraordinary events for our special day: an intimate and heartfelt ceremony followed by a spectacular disco lounge-themed wedding reception a day later. From start to finish, Jess demonstrated an unparalleled level of expertise, dedication, and passion, ensuring that every moment was nothing short of perfection.
First and foremost, Jess's impeccable attention to detail truly set our experience apart. She meticulously orchestrated every aspect of both events, seamlessly integrating our vision with her creative flair. Our ceremony was an intimate affair, filled with love and family, precisely as we had dreamed. And without missing a beat, Jess transformed our venue into a dazzling disco wonderland for the reception, complete with glittering lights, beautiful florals, and a band that kept everyone on their feet all night long.
What truly impressed us about Jess was their ability to balance professionalism with genuine care and enthusiasm. From our very first meeting, it was evident that Jess was not just a wedding planner but a trusted confidant, dedicated to making our dreams a reality. She listened attentively to our ideas, offered invaluable advice, and worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail was executed flawlessly. Her passion for the craft was infectious, and their unwavering commitment to our happiness was evident in every interaction. Jess not only managed to find the perfect caterers, photographer, and videographer for our events but also ensured that they seamlessly aligned with our vision. The caterers delighted our guests with an exquisite menu, the photographer captured every precious moment with artistry, and the videographer crafted a cinematic masterpiece that we will cherish for years to come. It was evident that Jess had carefully curated a team of professionals who shared their dedication to excellence.
Moreover, Jess's organizational skills were nothing short of exemplary. Coordinating two events in the same weekend could have been a nightmare, but Jess handled it with grace and precision. She liaised seamlessly with vendors, managed timelines with ease, and ensured that everything ran smoothly from start to finish. Jess's remarkable ability to accommodate our last-minute requests with ease and grace, despite the inevitable surprises that come with wedding planning, Jess remained unflappable, going above and beyond to ensure that every detail was executed flawlessly. As a result, my husband and I were able to relax and savor every moment of our day, knowing that we were in the best possible hands.
I cannot recommend Jess at La Valse Events highly enough. Her talent, professionalism, and genuine warmth made our wedding day truly unforgettable. If you're looking for a wedding planner who will exceed your expectations in every way, look no further than Jess. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for making our dreams come true.

Jessica was the BEST investment we made for our wedding! As an event planner, I thought I could do it all by myself. It was getting closer to our wedding day, and I was not even close to finalizing the details of our dream wedding. That's when we decided to hire Jessica. She is such a joy to work with. She pays extra attention to details, loves adding special touches to create your vision, and is beyond organized. From having her sharing her checklist to weekly phone calls, Jessica provided EXACTLY what we wanted our day to be, and stress free! I wish we had hired her from the beginning, as she made our planning process easy and fun. Beyond happy with her services!



Jess was the absolute best during our wedding planning! She made every part of the process a breeze, and our special day couldn’t have been any more perfect! She took all the details and ideas we wanted and brought them all to life,
and we couldn’t have been happier.
Jess is so organized and it was so amazing to go through the process stress-free, knowing that everything was taken care of!
Above all else, Jess was a pleasure to work with. She always had a smile on her face and was always willing to help with absolutely anything when needed.



Jessica was absolutely amazing. Hiring her was the best decision of the entire wedding. She is so talented at planning your wedding. You can tell she truly cares about her clients and she treats you like family. I looked forward to our planning meetings because they felt like I was just hanging out with her and planning my wedding with a close friend. She held me accountable on my budget and recommended vendors we felt most aligned with. She was there every step of the way, which I was so grateful for. 
On the day of the event she absolutely killed it. She kept everyone organized and on time so I wouldn’t have to and so I could enjoy our special day. Hiring her is a game changer. She over-delivered on everything. Thank you Jess for making a very overwhelming process a fun one and for executing the wedding of my dreams!

Jessica is absolutely AMAZING! Without her, my wedding would not have been at all manageable. From our very first conversation, she truly set me at ease. Jessica quite literally took all the responsibility off my plate and placed it onto hers. Her kindness, professionalism, and incredible knowledge were invaluable at every turn.
No detail was too small or overlooked—and she added her own unique style and flourish to my vision. She took in every word I said and beautifully choreographed my dream wedding.
All my vendors told me what a joy it was to work with her.
Working with Jessica at La Valse Events was quite honestly one of, it not the BEST decision I made during this process.
I cannot recommend her enough!
