“Hiring Ari was by far the BEST decision we made in an entire year of wedding planning. My husband and I are a weird mix of both incredibly Type A people and big partiers and we wanted a large, elaborate, beautiful, and fun wedding on a family property. Planning a wedding with a standard venue is hard enough, but to create our own venue we definitely needed the best wedding planner out there: Enter Ari! I could go on and on about Ari but I’ll list the things I looked for in reviews while wedding planning:

Responsiveness: Ari responds so quickly to every call, text, e-mail, etc. at pretty much every hour of the day! She makes you feel like you are her top priority at all times.

Budget: Ari saved me more money from the discounts her preferred vendors gave me than she actually even charged. Literally, my wedding was cheaper because I hired her than if I’d had no wedding planner! She’s also so savvy at knowing where to put money for maximum effect and where you can cut costs with no impact.

Fun: This should really be at the top of the list. Wedding planning is a whirlwind and who wants to feel like it’s yet another task after a long day at work? Ari makes everything into a productive party. Post wedding, I’m really missing talking to her every day because she’s a mix of a BFF and a fairy godmother who makes all your party dreams come true :)

Organization: Absolutely nothing slipped through the cracks on my wedding day/week because of Ari. It was very easy for me to take off the planner hat and put on the Bride hat and just soak in the moment because I trusted Ari 100% to handle everything (And again, I’m a Type A spreadsheet queen; trusting does not come naturally!)

Ari is truly amazing, and she will be my planner for any event I throw from here on out. If you want the best planner available (And who doesn’t want the best?!) ARJ Productions is it!”
