View More: http://idaliaphotography.pass.us/jeanne-and-richieHi! I’m Jeanne, a wedding and event planner serving south and central New Jersey, and specializing in Long Beach Island. I am located in beautiful and historic, Barnegat, NJ—you know, right across the bay from the lighthouse. When my husband Richie and I got married at the Rams Head Inn in Galloway, NJ., I had so much fun! I quickly realized that wedding and event planning was an awesome outlet for my high level of artistic creativity, do-it-yourself savvy and creative problem solving.

Wanna know what I had not thought about? The cost. I came to realize pretty quickly that even a small simple wedding can cost an arm and a leg! But you know what else I also realized? That with a little bit of inspiration, some know-how, and time, I was able to utilize my experience as a graphic designer and an artist to cut-corners (where no one would ever notice) and create exquisite details that made my guests think I had spent way more then I had. When I did spend money, I tried my best to spend it on things that would last beyond the wedding.*(*Don’t ask my husband about chair covers–it was a momentary lapse in my “economically conscious” wedding policy.)

After the wedding. After the honeymoon. A few months later.  I realized that I had so much fun planning my wedding that I wanted to help other people create the wedding of their dreams utilizing many of the tricks I learned along the way to save money and time. In fact, I can help you save time and money so well, that you actually can’t afford not to work with me as your wedding or event planner. So, let’s get started!

When I’m not planning a wedding or event (I do baby and wedding showers, vow renewals, and anniversaries) you can find me…
  • Chilling with my 12-year old
  • Reading; I love historical fiction
  • Watching the Walking Dead (we are zombie obsessed)
  • Batiking and up-cycling furniture (click for more information)

  • Hanging out on the beach in Ship Bottom, NJ (on LBI)
