I was born and raised in Maryland and now living in the Windy City of Chicago. My love for event planning all started with my first entertainment job when I was living in Los Angeles. I was infatuated with the creativity, the details, and the overall vision that comes to life with events. I just knew I found my passion in life.

After 6 years in Los Angeles I moved to Denver, CO and in that moment I knew I wanted to be a part of something more. I wanted to not only handle the details and create a vision for my clients; I wanted to create relationships with my couples and share their love stories. 

When I'm not helping you create the most memorable day of your life, you'll find me experiencing any good food scene, traveling with my husband, watching Netflix with a glass of vino, or snuggling with my pup Margaux.

My grandmother’s name was Rae and my middle name is Anna. My grandmother was a beautiful artist who always projected her bright, creative spirit within her style and outlook in life. I always admired that about her and I knew I had to honor her creative legacy throughout my journey in life. Thus, Anna Rae Events was born.

The Poppies: they are the flower to her Zodiac sign. She created many watercolor paintings and out of all of her paintings her most beloved art was called, ‘The Poppy’. So, I wanted to incorporate the Poppies as a small symbol to represent her bright and talented spirit.

The Story

We talked a few months before the wedding to start our planning document, which she continued to update for us throughout the process with to-dos, packing lists, anything you can think of needing for your wedding. About 1 month out from the big day, we started having weekly video chats. Jenn was so prepared and had all the right questions to ask to make sure our vision came to life, down to the tiniest detail. During rehearsal, she made sure everyone knew where they were supposed to be and when. On the day of the wedding - honestly, we couldn’t have executed it without her! She coordinated decorations, vendors, photos, music, everything! I was so grateful knowing I didn’t have to worry about anything except getting ready to marry the love of my life. Thank you for everything, Jenn!

"Oh my gosh, I can’t even begin to explain how smoothly Jenn helped our wedding flow from start to finish."

In looking for a wedding coordinator on Instagram, we came across Jenn’s profile and looked at her posts. It was instantly apparent that Jenn has an eye for beautiful weddings and bringing visions to life. We wanted our day to reflect what was important to us, which was bringing our families and friends together. Our wedding day was perfect because of Jenn’s ability to communicate so well with the other vendors and her attention to the details, design wise and overall execution. She was super helpful in helping find the right vendors, keeping everything organized, and helping calm our nerves. Jenn gets to know her couples and has what we consider a super-power of reflecting our love story in every single detail. We felt so comfortable knowing we had Jenn leading the day and we were able to focus on being present, enjoying getting ready with our wedding party, and having the ultimate hype woman so we could enjoy our day! We can’t recommend Jenn enough!

"We had the perfect day because of Jenn!"

We hired her for day of coordination (but she starts working with you 3 months prior) and I couldn't have found a better person to execute our wedding! She was so easy to talk to and work with throughout the whole process! She took all my design ideas and inspo and brought everything to life! Honestly, the whole setup was prettier than I could have imagined it to be or done myself! The day ran so smoothly, and if there were any issues, I would not have known. Also, it was so nice having her take over vendor communication 3 months prior and not having to worry about coordinating timelines and day of details. If you are debating hiring a day of coordinator, please do it! I was hesitant at first, thinking I didn't need a coordinator, but it was so nice being able to enjoy the day and not have to worry about every little detail! I had every faith in her that she would bring my vision to life, and she KILLED IT! Highly, highly recommend Jenn!

"Jenn was amazing to work with! "

 I do not even know how to put into words how incredible Jenn was throughout the entire wedding process! We hired her as a day of coordinator through a recommendation from our venue, and she was hands down the best money we spent on the entire day. We started working with Jenn about 3 months prior to our wedding day, and from the get go she was personable, experienced, organized, and an overall joy to talk to. She is flexible, responsive, and gave us so many suggestions that would never have crossed our minds that made our day extremely special. We had such a blast and it was a huge relief to have someone you trust to keep the day moving so perfectly. There was not a single thing I was stressed about the day of and that is all thanks to Jenn and her magical existence. If I could give her 100 stars I would. Highly recommend!

"The best advice I received prior to our wedding day was to "be a guest at your own wedding" and thanks to Jenn I am happy to say we were able to accomplish that!"

Seriously, you have no idea how important and necessary a wedding planner is! I truly could not have done it without her. It's a miracle (and a blessing to me) that her prices are not outrageously high because I feel like I received the most high quality service from Jenn. She is so organized, matter-of-fact, and tells it like it is. If you are an indecisive and easily overwhelmed bride like me then you can see how important these qualities are. She truly made my vision come to life. She made my wedding day run seamlessly and she even anticipated my needs before I could articulate them. Every little hiccup she was there with a solution, or even just some calming words and ideas. Plus, she's really enjoyable to be around! My husband and I are so thankful we chose Jenn for our wedding and we love her!
