At ARJ Productions we treat each event as if it were our own. At the cornerstone of our company is a pride in customer service and responsiveness to the client. We want to create a custom event for our clients that exceeds their expectations but not their budgets. We value honest and open communication, integrity, tireless hard work, persistence, enthusiasm and a positive attitude which is evident in our company’s leadership and in all of our support staff. We believe in clear communication and expectations of planner, client and the event. We value kindness, thoughtfulness, honesty and integrity. Our goal is for the client to feel involved and heard without being stressed or worried that their event is in the best of hands. We always pursue excellence in the look and feel of our events down to the smallest detail.



After battling cancer in 2005, Ari discovered her love for event planning after organizing numerous successful fundraising events for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. After winning the National Woman of The Year from LLS, she began her event planning and management career in Fairfax, VA and has since successfully planned social events from Bar and Bat Mitzvahs to engagement parties, baby showers, graduations, milestone birthdays and weddings.

Her favorite aspect of event planning is getting to know her clients as each one offers a new perspective and fresh ideas. She loves seeing an empty venue transform into a fabulous event and watching her clients reaction when they see their event all put together for the very first time! In addition to creating custom events for her unique clients she also manages two active teenagers, four pets and a husband!!
