Our Wedding Planner - Angela Poulin
06/28/2014
We had a simple wedding in mind and never foresaw the amount of details that go into it. Call it simply complexity? We learned it\'s unavoidable, since in the end your own wedding is a special once in a lifetime event where details matter. These days, sometimes being simple actually translates to non-standard, and thus requires a lot of customization and intervention to get right. This is especially true when you try and organize a wedding 3000 miles away. Never fear, though, because Angela is here!

When planning your wedding, there will be situations that arise where it seems you\'re at an impasse, and you need someone steadfast, caring, and super-organized to move things along. This is Angela in a nutshell.

But Angela\'s greatest strength is actually her ability to listen. This is especially true if there are several people involved in planning, all offering different opinions at times. She has a unique ability to let the dust settle, then respond with reasonable alternatives that always make everyone happy. Consider her skillset that of a chief negotiator. I now firmly believe that with anyone less we wouldn\'t have gotten it done.

When choosing a wedding planner, your first priority should be finding the right person as opposed to solely what they know. But Angela also has some great connections with the local vendors, which was a nice bonus. One of our big things was that we wanted to have kegs of beers with no restrictions associated with them for our guests. She got us hooked up with a local guy who rented us a beer trailer for the weekend, which completely solved the problem. This connection was priceless, since he even took care of the paperwork for us. We never would have found this connection without Angela, and in retrospect was such an integral detail, since it completely shaped the dynamics of the night.

We also learned the hard way that some planners will push their own vendors to due to some financial incentive. But that definitely was not the case with Angela. Her primary concern was always adapting to what we wanted, which is the only way it should be.

Let me also say that planning a wedding requires a lot of reading and responding to email, which can become counter- productive if the volumes are too high, or if issues are neglected. This is especially true if you\'re corresponding remotely. Angela saved us countless hours by consolidating information, and keeping questions simplified and completely relevant to our goals.

So after 9 months of solid planning, the wedding weekend was finally here. We had a scare the day before when our officiant was stuck in traffic before our rehearsal. Rather than allow for imminent mental breakdown, Angela stepped up and directed the program herself by playing the role. It worked perfectly and we actually got some sleep the night before our big day.

The day of the wedding itself things went like clockwork. Everyone told us that the day of your own wedding will be a blur, and let me say that they\'re right. But even so, you will never forget who was there and how they made you feel. Since we felt that Angela had complete control over the details that day, we were able to completely relax. We can honestly say that the day was perfect and was the best single day of our life so far.

   After a bad experience with a wedding planner, I was nervous about taking the plunge again and leaving my once in a lifetime event in the hands of a stranger. Angela of White Jasmine Weddings NH quickly eased my worry, from our first conversation to our heartfelt goodbye after my wedding was over. What can I say, other than I love Angels and by the end of the weekend I was introducing her as my best friend?

   I hired Angela for a three-day wedding extravaganza- I did the planning and she did the execution. After interviewing several other area planners, I found that her rates were most reasonable, especially considering all of the complimentary add-ins that she provided such as: referrals to vendors(many planners charge an arm and a leg for this), decor for our ceremony, extra decorations for our suddenly indoor, rained out bbq, a several hour meeting at our venue weeks before the wedding, ceremony decor planning(includes how-tos so we could save more money). In addition to these -pre-wedding services, Angela executed our wedding vision perfectly- it was like she was in my head. In fact, she did it better than I would have myself! Saturday night coffee service? I forgot, but Angela expertly pulled it off, making it look like I forgot NOTHING. Oh, and all those extra subs from Saturday lunch? Angela remembered those and thought my guests might be hungry after hours of dancing, so she put them out and made an announcement at the end of the ceremony.  She treated my guests and me as if we were her family members and her job was to make us as comfortable and happy as possible. My goodness, it worked. As our guests were telling us goodbye they first congratulated us on our marriage and wedding, and then congratulated us on finding a good wedding planner. Additionally, every vendor we hired commented on how easy she was to work with.

    You cannot go wrong with Angela and White Jasmine Weddings. If you are planning a wedding in your own back yard or from 1,000 miles away, you will rarely if ever feel stressed or worried as long as she is on your team. She is professional, intelligent, quick on her feet, enjoyable, and easy to be around. I enjoyed my wedding thoroughly because she was there to make it happen.
