Sweet Words


“My daughter’s wedding at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago was an absolute dream come true, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the exceptional expertise and dedication of Jaclyn Duffield and her team at JDetailed Events. From the moment we began working with her, we knew we were in capable hands, but what she managed to pull off truly exceeded our expectations.

One of the most impressive aspects of our experience was the venue selection. The Adler Planetarium was a breathtaking choice, and was the perfect fit for the wedding my daughter had always envisioned. From the gorgeous table settings to the stunning views of the Chicago skyline, every detail was meticulously thought out and executed.

When it came to coordinating the various elements of the wedding, Jaclyn was an absolute rock star. She not only recommended the best vendors in the city but also seamlessly orchestrated their efforts to create a cohesive and unforgettable event. And, her attention to detail extended to every corner of the celebration.

What truly sets Jaclyn apart is her warm and attentive demeanor. She was always available to answer our questions, alleviate our concerns, and offer valuable insights. Her calm and reassuring presence made the entire planning process a joy, and her expertise turned our daughter’s vision into a reality.

We wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone seeking a wedding planner who can transform their vision into a flawless reality. Thank you, Jaclyn and JDetailed Events for giving us a day we will cherish forever!”

“Jaclyn and her team are absolutely amazing! Throughout the whole wedding planning process Jaclyn kept us on track and made sure all of the tiniest little details were accounted for. She is also such a lovely and positive presence throughout what can be a stressful time. During the actual wedding Jaclyn took such great care of us. Whenever any little issue arose, she was on it within seconds. We had the BEST wedding weekend ever and could not have done it without Jaclyn and her team.”

“Jaclyn and her team are hands down the best team ever. If you are a bride, looking for most of the weight of your wedding being taken off your shoulders, these are your girls! My wedding day was the least bit stressful and the most amazing day, thanks to them. Jaclyn is full of amazing ideas and so efficient with everything that needed to get done. There is so many little details i would have never thought about if it wasn’t for her. She will make your day more than you ever dreamed of. I will continue to tell people about J Detailed Events forever. This team is exactly what every bride needs to make their big day perfect!”

“Working with JDetailed Event/Jaclyn was an absolute delight. We asked her to help with full-service wedding planning and honestly it was the best decision we ever made. Her connection with vendors throughout the city was essential to our planning process and her relationships with them made for a seamless coordination. She truly helped us with our whole wedding weekend. She was able to help steer me in directions and knew instinctively when I was feeling overwhelmed. She has a way of making that feeling disappear because she has a solution for everything. She can look at the bigger picture and then help with the smaller details. She takes time to learn about your style and vision while also using her knowledge.

The day of the wedding Jaclyn and her team could not have been more organized and friendly. They all made me feel so special and calm the day of. I never had to ask if something had happened because Jaclyn or her team was already doing it, or it had happened. I barely looked at my phone because I knew they were keeping us on time, and they had everything covered. My whole family and even guests recognized how amazing her and her team are and sent amazing compliments. At the end of the weekend me, my husband and my mom all lamented how it was sad it was over because we would not have the opportunity to see Jaclyn, she has a way of feeling like a close family friend. We could not imagine doing it without her!”

“If you’re looking for a positive, seasoned, and reliable fairy Godmother to take your worries away for your big day, look no further. JDetailed Events/Jaclyn is your answer. We hired Jaclyn for full wedding planning services after realizing we were out of our league trying to plan a wedding on our own. Jaclyn stepped right in and put our minds at ease. She has such great contacts and recommendations for vendors across the Chicagoland area. Everyone she recommended was first class. She was also proactive during uncertain Covid times in suggesting that we simply inquire about alternative wedding dates if we had to push. In doing so, we were able to secure an alternate date only 4 months after our original date versus having to wait until 2022. On the day of our wedding, Jaclyn and her full team of assistants was incredibly calm, organized and attentive. She pays attention to what’s important to the Bride and Groom and puts that first. Our wedding day went off flawlessly, we were actually ahead of schedule all day (how often does that happen?), and we were able to truly enjoy our family and friend’s company due to Jaclyn’s detailed planning. Reach out to JDetailed Events and I’m certain you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Jaclyn and team!”

“How do I even begin to describe how amazing Jaclyn and her team are?! I could not have planned and replanned (#covidbride) my wedding without Jaclyn. She is EVERYTHING you need in a wedding planner. She is organized, kind, creative, collaborative and just an all around amazing human being. The day of the wedding, her gentle and sweet demeanor was EXACTLY what I needed to calm my nerves. Of course I found out later that, behind the scenes, she was literally superwoman working fast and furiously to make sure it was truly the wedding of my dreams (AND IT WAS BETTER THAN I EVER DREAMED IT COULD BE!) Her day of team was just as fantastic. Special shout out to Kate who helped fix my broken bustle/basically redid my hair in the bathroom! She was also really funny and spunky which helped ease the nerves too! All in all, if you are thinking of booking Jaclyn and her team… DO IT!”

“Working with Jaclyn and her team was a highlight of our wedding planning experience and execution. We had to move our wedding twice due to the pandemic and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without JDetailed Events. Jaclyn was organized and patient. She went above and beyond leading up to the date to make sure every detail fit our vision. On the day of Jaclyn and her team guided us in a manner that kept us on task and on time while allowing us to completely enjoy the day and be present without worrying about anything. I could go on and on. I wish we had another wedding so that I could work with Jaclyn again :)”

“Working with JDetailed Events was the best wedding vendor decision we ever could’ve made; Jaclyn and her team truly helped us pull off the wedding of our dreams! Our wedding day felt like it went off without a hitch. Jaclyn was on top of everything, while keeping a total sense of calm that put everyone at ease. We received numerous compliments from both our wedding party and other vendors about how great Jaclyn was to work with. Her attention to detail, scheduling, and coordination never felt overbearing, and made the day seamlessly enjoyable. She has the whole day-of scheduling down to a science and made even game-time decisions (we ended up moving our reception inside due to rain) feel like they had been the plan all along. Planning a wedding in the thick of Covid was stressful but Jaclyn went above and beyond in making us feel supported the entire time. We could have not imagined our wedding day without her.”

“Jaclyn and her team are excellent to work with, and I couldn’t recommend them more! Jaclyn is super detail-oriented, responsive, caring, attentive, and easy to work with! COVID didn’t make wedding planning easy, and from this, we had many different versions of our wedding plan throughout the year. Jaclyn was so helpful in guiding us through what to do next with any event regulation changes and communicating with our vendors along the way. Working with her through pandemic wedding planning kept us on track with our wedding day plan while being flexible with the ever-changing regulations. On our wedding day, the weather took a turn in the afternoon, and Jaclyn, Kate, and Emma immediately got into action and made our wedding day seamless for our guests and us. Jaclyn and her team were so great to be a part of our wedding day and worked extremely hard behind the scenes that day to make it as perfect as it was! At all times, there was always someone nearby to help or to check in to make sure we didn’t miss a detail. Jaclyn is a great person and an excellent wedding planner that will make any bump that may come up on your wedding day feel incredibly seamless to you and your guests!”

“Jackie was a godsend. She was able to pull off our backyard micro-wedding in 3.5 weeks, and no corners cut! She helped in making sure we were smart with our budget, was able to get the best vendors in the area, kept all the details and timing extremely organized, and did it all patiently and with such a positive energy / attitude! I have no idea how she did it, but it was a dream come true of a wedding. While only 38 people, the tables were set meticulously, she had the vendors were all operating fluidly and she did so much without once giving me the slightest worry or concern. Would beyond highly recommend her to any and every bride!”

She was extremely detail-oriented, patient, caring and kind throughout the whole process. Every vendor she recommended did an amazing job and she made everything come together to make the perfect day. She made our vision come to life flawlessly! We were able to just enjoy the entire weekend without worry because they took care of everything. I would recommend JDetailed Events to anyone!”

“Planning a wedding is an incredibly time consuming process and I could not be more thankful that Jaclyn was our planner. She is easy to work with, extremely organized and will go to bat for you when dealing with vendors. Jaclyn’s attention to detail is impeccable and she was instrumental in bring the type of the wedding I envisioned to life. I couldn’t have done it without her. She keeps you on a timeline and makes sure that you are crossing items off the wedding checklist. It was a relief to know we were on track and helped ease the process! I had the most beautiful wedding that truly was one of the best days of my life. I am so grateful- thank you, Jaclyn!”

“Jaclyn and JDetailed Events made the wedding planning process so incredible for us! We had a year and a half engagement and Jaclyn was right there with us the entire time. Whenever we were starting to get stressed about anything, Jaclyn assured us that everything was in line and was going to be perfect! She was at our side at every step of this process and we could not be more thankful and excited about choosing her and her company as our wedding planner. We wish we could thank them all a million times for the amazing job they did! This was the best experience of our lives and it lived up to everything that we ever could have asked for. We will continue to suggest Jaclyn and JDetailed Events to all of our peers when they get engaged!”

“We cannot thank Jaclyn and her team enough for everything they did to make our wedding a dream come true!! Jaclyn’s advice and guidance was invaluable at every step of the way, from suggesting vendors for us to meet with, setting up the meetings, working through contracts, coming to meetings with us throughout the process, wedding day coordination and the thousands of details in between. Throughout everything, she was always so responsive, easy to get a hold of, professional and able to help us with any question or request we had. She truly made the planning process fun and stress-free at every step of the way. On our wedding day, everything went perfectly and there was there was not one single thing we would have changed about our wedding day, due in large part to the incredible work that Jaclyn put in. JDetailed Events was truly exceptional and we cannot recommend them highly enough!!”

“We had the good fortune of being introduced to Jaclyn by the catering director of our wedding venue. And what luck it was! From the first meeting we sat down with Jaclyn, we were struck by her professionalism and genuine enthusiasm for the work that she does. Her incredible disposition throughout the 14 month planning process never changed: she was timely in all of her correspondence; provided endless advice and guidance on our vendors (we adore the band she had suggested as well as photographer and videographer); she was an endless wealth of knowledge for all the countless planning elements, timeline execution, and beyond. We both had a perfect wedding day and the following morning, we immediately contacted Jaclyn to thank her and her team for facilitating such a wonderful celebration. We speak earnestly in saying that if anyone we know is planning on getting married in Chicago, they need to look no further than JDetailed Events.”

“Jaclyn and the JDetailed Events team are absolutely wonderful. We could not have been happier with Jaclyn throughout the entire process. We remember first meeting Jaclyn and immediately knowing she was the right fit for us. She is so friendly and welcoming and made it really easy to plan and communicate with her. She maintains a professional yet laid back attitude despite how stressful and crazy the planning can be, which is a wonderful quality in this type of business. Our minds were at ease throughout the process as Jaclyn ensured that all details were in place and that any concerns were addressed immediately. Jaclyn’s responsiveness throughout the entire process was impeccable! We were never kept waiting for an answer and many times she was a step ahead of us when it came to questions and bookings. Jaclyn has a great network of vendors who were great to work with and who really met our needs. On our Wedding day, everything went so smoothly. Jaclyn and her team worked diligently behind the scenes to run a flawless day. If any issues did arise (as they always do) we weren’t aware of anything! And afterwards, JDetailed Events had a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our hotel room and all of our “day of” items organized and ready for us to take home. It’s those little details that set JDetailed Events apart and made this experience so enjoyable. Our wedding day was everything we hoped it’d be and we couldn’t have pulled it off without the efforts and dedication of JDetailed Events.”

“HUGE THANKS to Jaclyn, Moira, Ashley and the entire JDetailed Events team for making the best weekend of our lives exactly that! They were an absolute godsend–it would be impossible to sing their praises high enough! Their unfailing organization, detail-oriented expertise and eye for style was evident from the very start. They were involved in virtually every aspect of planning, no matter how big or small, ensuring that that no detail went overlooked. From helping us develop our vision for the big day, to selecting and negotiating with vendors (often earning substantial discounts and concessions), to bringing our plans life, they did it all with ease and grace. They kept us on track and under budget, no matter what planning-related wrinkles popped up. And everything turned out PERFECT, far exceeding even our wildest dreams. Not once during the wedding weekend did we have to worry about anything–the JDetailed Events team had already taken care of EVERYTHING. In the end, our wedding weekend (and the weeks leading up to it) was less stressful, less expensive and all-around better because of the JDetailed Events team. With them handling the countless details, we were able to soak up all the little moments from our big day and focus on what truly matters, something we are so incredibly gratefull for. If you’re thinking about booking with JDetailed Events, our only advice is ABSOLUTELY GO FOR IT–it was worth every penny and then some!”

Thank you so much for all your hard work, and attentive consideration throughout the whole day (and planning process in general!). This beautiful wedding day literally couldn’t happen without your expertise, effort, professional personality, and in-depth knowledge of everything wedding!!!

“Without Jaclyn the wedding would not have been the same. She went above and beyond to not only make the wedding weekend perfect, but the wedding itself was absolutely magical. I didn’t have to worry about anything because I knew Jaclyn and her team were on top of it. Being from out of town I needed a lot of help with vendors and Jaclyn pointed me in the right direction. She was absolutely amazing to work with and I could never thank her enough.”

“We knew from the start that we were in great hands with Jaclyn and her team. Not only was JDetailed highly referred by our venue, but during our first meeting, Jaclyn’s attention to detail and professionalism were immediately apparent. We got to work right away, and she composed several customized materials to help us stay on track throughout the process – something that I really appreciated, considering how busy life is when you throw wedding planning into the mix! We spent the next year working closely together, and although obviously there were decisions to make, planning our Big Day was never stressful. In fact, thanks to Jaclyn, it was exactly the opposite: she made the entire process very seamless, and each step was so exciting and fun. Even the week leading up to our wedding (which can be “crunch time” for a lot of brides), Jaclyn had us so well prepared that all I had to do was relax and enjoy those very special days with my fiancé and family. Countless times throughout the year, my parents and I would be enthusiastically high-fiving one another that Jaclyn was our planner because she was so fantastic. When I think back on our wedding day, only amazing memories come to mind thanks to the team. There are truly no words to express how above-and-beyond they went. They executed each piece of the day to perfection and stuck to the timeline, down to the minute (which was incredibly important since we had a lot of moving pieces and a very large bridal party). The JDetailed team managed the entire event with a smile on their face, maintained the calmest disposition and stayed attentive from start to finish. After a sparkler send-off from our guests, Jaclyn was waiting at our limo with a small deep dish pizza leftover from the late-night snacks for my husband and I to enjoy… in addition to the blissfully wonderful memories from our wedding. My family, husband and I are eternally grateful to them for all of the hard work and effort they put forth to make the day so perfect for us and our vision come to life.”

“I think most brides can understand the feeling of “what can I cut from the budget?” when planning a wedding. Suddenly everything has added up and there are just too many things to cover. Let me tell you something– a Jaclyn and her team are THE LAST thing you should cut!!! It may seem like an extra expense or an extravagance, and you may believe that you can coordinate all these little details yourself, but when it comes down to it, you want to be able to enjoy your wedding day without having to worry if people someone people are standing in the right place and if they received the right meal! Think of all the tiny details that need to fall into place for a perfect wedding day– Jaclyn will make sure they do! From the very beginning of working with Jaclyn, she was extremely kind and professional. She will do everything she can to make sure your wedding planning goes according to your plan. In fact, she even customized a package for me right from the start to make sure my needs were met. Jaclyn has tons of amazing ideas for the perfect wedding weekend, but she would never push anything on you, she just strives to make you happy. Throughout the entire process Jaclyn was extremely helpful. Any time I had questions about anything, she was quick to respond. She was great at catching money saving options in catering proposals and carefully reviewed every contract we signed. I always felt confident signing a contract because I knew Jaclyn had reviewed it and gave it the okay! You would not believe how many little tiny details come up when you are planning a wedding. Especially in the home stretch when you think you have completed everything! Jaclyn and her team made sure that no stone was unturned in those final days. There were plenty of things that I was sure I would get to before the wedding…and when I ended up being crammed for time, Jaclyn was there to assist me and completed the tasks. Like I said, the wedding weekend is full of so many moving parts that you do not want to be monitoring. Jaclyn creates an incredibly detailed timeline distributed to the entire wedding party that ensures everyone knows where to be and when. This is not something that you want to create yourself, trust me! My wedding weekend could not have gone more smoothly, and I attribute this entirely to Jaclyn and her team. Being able to relax, to enjoy being surrounded by all your friends and family, and just soak up everything around you is priceless on your wedding day. And thanks to Jaclyn I was able to do that! This was, by far, the best money spent for our wedding. Thanks Jaclyn!”

“Wedding planning can be one of the most fun and exciting times in your life but also one of the most stressful and overwhelming times — I’m sure any bride and groom would say exactly the same thing. 🙂 Jaclyn and JDetailed Events made the whole process seamless for us. From coordinating all the vendors and venues, scheduling meetings and communicating with us and our families, and ensuring that every little detail was taken care of, JDetailed took care of absolutely everything. Jaclyn helped us plan ahead so that our wedding weeked was stress-free. Ryan and I could focus on enjoying every moment because we knew JDetailed would take care of the rest. I would recommend Jaclyn and JDetailed again and again for anyone. Thank you for making our special weekend so perfect!!”

“Hiring JDetailed Events was the best decision we made during wedding planning. Wedding planning can be the most exciting and fun experience but the fun can also get lost in all the details. Jackie and her team made sure that we enjoyed every minute of planning our wedding and helped to take care of all the details. Jackie is professional and genuinely wants your wedding day to be perfect and perfectly representative of the couple. She made a point to come to vendor appointments and went out of her way to make sure we loved every detail. From the bride and groom’s perspectives, not a thing went wrong on the day of the wedding and we know that is because of Jackie and her team taking care of everything! We could not say more wonderful things about the JDetailed team and we are so grateful for everything they did to make our wedding day perfect.”

“If you haven’t already booked JDetailed Events, DO IT NOW! 🙂 Jackie and Ashley were so awesome throughout the entire wedding process. From our first week of engagement Jackie was there helping us create our wedding timeline. Jackie thought of every detail and provided us a list of everything that needed to be done. Wedding planning can be so fun but also so anxiety provoking and Jackie relieved so much of the anxiety. Jackie and Ashley are so incredibly friendly and warm and make you feel like everything you say is important. We got married the weekend Midway and O’Hare were shut down and 30 of our guests were not able to make it. While we were sad about our friends and family who were not present, we did not have to worry at all about re-doing the tables or contacting the vendors because Ashley and Jackie took care of it all. Throughout the wedding weekend Ashley took care of every detail, answered every annoying question and kept the whole family and wedding party on track. We could not have survived without her! Ashley thought of everything. I felt so taken care of, there is no way our wedding could have been so magical without them! Thank you Ashley, Jackie, Moira and the whole JDetailed team for making our wedding day perfection!”

“A huge THANK YOU to Jackie and JDetailed for your help in planning such a memorable and beautiful wedding! Jackie provided incredible guidance throughout the wedding process, understood my vision and helped bring that vision to life. Jackie was very organized, thorough, thoughtful, and professional from the very beginning of our process with helping to book hotel blocks, to the detailed and very helpful wedding timeline, and to the last minute vendor details up to the day of the wedding. The planning process and selecting/communicating with vendors was quite overwhelming for me (and I’m a horrible decision maker). Jackie helped so much in making appropriate vendor recommendations and selections. She took all of my concerns and questions seriously – even down to what type of table linen to use. Jackie definitely has a “customer first” attitude which helped make me feel special and valued throughout the process and her amazing responsiveness, communication and flexibility is so appreciated. I would HIGHLY recommend JDetailed for any event!”

“Thank you JDetailed events for planning a wonderful event! Working with Jaclyn and Ashley was such a pleasure. From the beginning of the process to the actual wedding day, they did everything to make my husband and I feel relaxed and assured the day would be absolutely perfect. I was very thankful for Jaclyn’s assistance at the beginning of the process with vendor selection and negotiation. We could not have been more pleased with the florist (Virginia Wolf), band (Green Line), stationery (Magnificent Milestones), and photographer (Gerber and Scarpelli). Jaclyn worked closely with them and us to make sure our dream wedding became a reality. She also worked closely with St. Michael’s in Old Town, Germania place, and the PUBLIC hotel to make sure the day of coordination was perfect. The groom’s parents also used Jaclyn to help plan a beautiful rehearsal dinner at Spiaggia. They immediately were impressed by Jaclyn’s skill and knowledge of venues in the area. I was highly impressed with the comprehensive timeline Jaclyn and Ashley put together for the entire weekend. Everyone partaking in the wedding from the bridal party to the vendors knew exactly where to be and when starting Friday morning before the rehearsal dinner. I also love the additional touches Jaclyn and Ashley did on the actual wedding day to make us feel special. Throughout the day and after, friends and family complimented how “relaxed” and happy we were. I attribute the calm attitude to having Jaclyn and Ashley by our side. I knew not a detail would be overlooked and any issue that arose would be addressed immediately. Thank you Jaclyn and Ashley for helping us plan truly the best night of our lives. Our guests could not stop complimenting us on the beautiful venue, food, band, and small details that made the night unforgettable!”

“I was asked by many people why I wasn’t stressed out the week of and day of the wedding. That’s all thanks to Jaclyn – I was able to enjoy my wedding day knowing that she had everything under control. When I met with Jaclyn for the first time, she seemed organized, professional and extremely detail-oriented. She thought of everything, even those details I didn’t realize existed! When it came down to the week of the wedding, she blew me away. She handled everything, including creating an extensive timeline and contacting all vendors at least once. I highly recommend Jaclyn to anyone planning their wedding and wanting that extra assurance that your wedding day is going to go off without a hitch!”

Doug and I never had a doubt that everything would be perfect, but it wasn’t until the week of the wedding we realized how amazing Jackie truly is. She handled every issue calmly and collected so that nothing worried us, and we could enjoy our family and friends. Most importantly, Jackie is very attentive to her clients. She would respond to any calls/texts/emails almost immediately, no matter what the issue was. Doug and I were in the best hands, and we are so grateful for Jackie! “
