Events The Way You Want Them.
If you ask any of my 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 a breathtaking 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 all. Let's plan a show stopping event that leaves your guests talking for years to come.
La Valse Events is the stuff of dreams and I am beyond proud to say that I built it myself. I consistently feel honored that this is how I spent my days.
For the majority of my life thus far, 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....
"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 because she understands the industry lingo and walked us through every step of the planning process.
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!
