As Kyle and I pack for our much needed honeymoon today, I wanted to steal a second to send you an email to thank you again for everything. You have made our dream wedding a reality. The evening was described as:
"The best wedding I've ever been to"
"The most classy wedding I've ever been to"
The one compliment we received the most frequently was that the wedding was "perfect" and that every detail was "perfect" - so it looks like you've named your company well. If we could do it all again, the only thing we'd change would have been to have you as a wedding guest, so that you too could have enjoyed the spectacular party. From the band to the last minute menus to the room changes, setup and itineraries, each detail was perfectly attended to. Most importantly, thank you for putting up with me over the past few months.
As busy as you were last night, I hope you were able to steal a few seconds to look around and feel a tremendous sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. You are wonderful and Kyle and I appreciate everything you've done for us.
Best of luck in the future and we will be sure to stay in touch.
Lindsay and Kyle
Jodi of Simply Perfect was a pleasure to work with. An absolute professional, she was in complete control of the event and ran it as smoothly as it could have possibly been run. I can honestly say that Jodi is the most sincere, courteous and organized that I have ever worked with! I will refer her to any of my clients looking for a wedding planner!

I just wanted to thank you again for all your help and guidance before, on the day and after the wedding! I would not have made it without you...and I know the event was even better because of you! I appreciate that you went over and above the call of duty...you are the best example of "grace under pressure" I have ever seen! Much success to you in the years to come.
Best wishes, Terry and Mark

You are the best of the best Jodi - thank you sincerely for everything.

Jodi, your professionalism, patience, smile and excellent service truly made a difference in our day. From the first day you were involved in helping us plan our wedding to the day of the wedding; we trusted that your goal was the same as ours - making the wedding day a well organized, enjoyable and memorable day for everyone. Having you there meant that Gene and I could entertain our guests and truly celebrate our day.
We could not have asked for a better wedding planner. You made sure our day was "Simply Perfect".
Thank you Jodi,
Perry and Gene
Wow, what do we say?? What can we say? It is now almost 48 hours since the end of our special day and we are still glowing from enjoyment and happiness. You made our day one that we can sit back, relax and enjoy. Your guidance throughout our wedding planning process was unparalleled. We put complete trust in your judgment and expertise and you exceeded all our expectations. We truly did enjoy every moment on our day and knew that we didn't need to be concerned about every little detail because you had your eye on everything. You kept us sane, organized and HAPPY over the last few months and we can't thank you enough.
With sincere gratitude,
