Why hello there! My name is Brittany and I love what I do. Teamed up with my co-owner and husband, Brian and our day-of coordinator, Julie, we can do some seriously amazing things (and that doesn’t even include our awesome graphic designer and event installation and clean up crew!). Care to learn more?
Please take a moment to read this before hiring Brittany and the BB Jean Events’ team!
Interview with Brittany, Owner of BB Jean Events
How did you become a coordinator and how long have you been doing this?
I was a girl scout as a little girl and had
a few way too many badges in creative arts, music and working with other people (civic duty badge?! Check! First aid?! Double check!). As I got older, I retained a passion for art and creating. Finally, when I worked on my bachelor’s degree, I asked myself what I really wanted to do out there. If I could do anything, I would work with people in a field that allowed me to be creative, make things happen and really do something that I loved. At the time, there were no degree options in Event Planning and Design so I finished my degree, got a grown-up job for a few years (in banking…ew) and began laying the groundwork for BB Jean Events. My husband and I officially began taking on clients in 2008, a few months after we said our own I Do’s. It’s been an amazing ride ever since!
We love your services and your portfolio and everything sounds amazing so tell me what sets you a part from all the other wedding coordination and planning companies out there?
We offer many of our design services in house giving you the flexibility to literally have whatever you can dream up for your wedding day! Custom wedding invitations printed on wood or handcrafted lighting installations? Sure why not! Because you’re working with one company, no ideas get lost in translation.
This sounds perfect but also sounds expensive. Are we going to be able to afford this?
We’re able to take on clients with varying event budgets because we’re able to offer up ideas and assistance specific to your day and needs. While our packages are a set fee, the ideas, ways we organize your wedding and referrals we source for you are all custom tailored to your budget. Not only will we work hard to bring the details of your wedding together but we bring amazing vendors to the table that you may not have heard of (for rates that suit your style and budget no less!) give you ideas that provide the most bang for your buck and (most importantly) give you the support you need to walk confidently down the aisle without worrying if the reception set-up is coming together smoothly.
Who do you work best with?
We work best with clients that give us honest answers when we offer up ideas and suggestions- getting feedback from you allows us to fine tune our suggestions and how we organize things for you so your day looks like what you’re picturing.
Who is not going to benefit from your team coordinating their wedding?
Clients with a budget under $10k would better benefit from a one-on-one DIY planning meeting with us (we’d rather you save some moola but we’d still be happy to help you get the info you need to make your wedding happen!)
Will I lose control of my wedding if you are planning it for me?
Not at all. We’re collaborators with you working hard to make you happy. Think of us as personal shoppers for your wedding – we don’t define your style, we just bring the resources your way to make it happen. And just like shopping, you get to make all the final choices on what you want to do.
Will you work with the vendors I’ve already found or people I really want to work with?
Absolutely! And if you don’t know who you want to work with, we’ll provide referrals for amazing companies that are available on your date.
Do you take credit cards and can we make a payment plan?
Yes we accept credit cards. Need a payment plan? Sure, let’s create something that works for you!
Do you take more than 1 wedding per day?
All of our coordinators will only work for one client a day because you deserve the piece of mind to know we’re there for you when you need us.
This sounds like everything we’ve been looking for! What do we have to do next to start the process?
The next step is for you to call me at 360-820-0306 or you can email me at email@example.com set up your Get Acquainted Consultation. We want to hear about your needs to see if we’re a good match and which package fits your personality and budget best.
May we contact some of your former clients for a referral and to see what it’s like to work with you?
Of course! You can also look at our client testimonials right now.
We have a few more questions to ask before we get started. Can I call you to discuss further?
Yes! In fact we highly encourage and require all of our clients to schedule a Get Acquainted Consultation so we can get all of the details of your day and your questions answered and make sure we’re a great fit for one another. Again, please feel free to call me with any questions or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your needs.
