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.
Behind every LVE event is owner, Jess Duncan, an experienced event planner and designer.
Jess' eye for detail, methodical organization, and love of stylish aesthetics, ensures that every element of every event is nothing less than perfect.
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.
"HER ONLY CONCERN IS MAKING HER COUPLES' DREAMS COME TRUE"
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.
"YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON JESS TO BRING A STYLISH EDIT"
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!
"WE WERE SO HAPPY AND STRESS FREE ALL BECAUSE OF LVE."
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!
"she MADE EVERY PART OF THE PROCESS A BREEZE."
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.
"SHE OVER-DELIVERED ON EVERYTHING"
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!
"SHE BEAUTIFULLY CHOREOGRAPHED MY DREAM WEDDING"
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!
