Jean enjoys recommending the perfect match of vendors for each of the couples who have entrusted her with their wedding day.

  • Jean has been the local planner for couples living in New York City, Boston, Virginia, Texas, Las Vegas, and even Tokyo. Jean's destination wedding clients quickly learn to trust her professional advice, personalized research on their behalf, and detailed preparation of every part of their wedding day.
