Stylish, personalized events with the proper mix of trend and timelessness is the way that Jody Wimer would describe her event design style.

Reveling in the logistics of events produced on a large or intimate scale, Wimer believes that event planning is essentially architecture with a twist of theater.

“My wedding planning philosophy has always been that as a planner we are to be a watchful partner to ensure that your wedding day details tell your love story and reflect the life that you are building as a couple. To me the adage has always been that before anything else the couple is the theme of the event.”
