San francisco, California
My review for this fabulous team is long overdue. I have sang their praises to so many and am glad to finally share them on The Knot. Jessica and her team were essential to creating our perfect wedding day. My husband and I held our wedding on Memorial weekend in San Francisco. We had spent months leading up to the wedding managing details and planning tons of DIY elements, but knew that ultimately we hoped to hand over the reins and let a day-of coordinator run the show. That’s why we paired up with Something Blue—but what we got was so much more. It was important to us that we stay “in the moment” on our wedding day. We didn’t want to direct traffic or look at the clock. Most of our guests were from out of state, and we wanted them to treat their visit like an honest-to-goodness vacation. Having a team to set up, break down, and seamlessly direct the flow of the evening’s activities was our primary goal. Jessica really made that dream come true.Jessica was so quick to respond to any questions that popped up as we finalized our day-of plans. In the event that she didn’t know the answer, she would immediately let us know she received our inquiry and was would be in touch soon. This excellent communication went such a long way to give me peace of mind. As if answering our questions and creating our timeline wasn’t enough, Jessica took it a step further. She set up her own appointment with our caterer before the event and together they went step by step over our plans. They ultimately saved us hundreds of dollars by eliminating unnecessary rentals and services—without even being asked!We had some grand ideas for our wedding day, and Something Blue helped us implement all of these personal projects. The ladies knew every detail inside and out, and worked hard to transform our photo studio venue into the dreamy world we envisioned. Whether it was placing ceramic centerpieces, directing the florist, or arranging the dessert table, they took our ideas and ran with them no questions asked. During the event, Jessica and her team kept the night rolling right on track. We never once had to look at the clock. Our guests were happy, entertained, and well taken care of. They were so friendly to our guests, and made themselves available to whomever had a request. Many friends noted that we were so lucky to have these girls running the show. At the end of the night Jessica left us with one final piece of mind. After we had made our exit and the guests had all left, the team stayed behind to pack up and help the catering team load out. A simple email congratulating us on our marriage, and to let us know everything at the venue was taken care of, was a wonderful way to wrap up our experience with the team. Something Blue truly cared about making our wedding day memorable, and we cannot thank them enough.
I do not want to think about what our wedding would have been like without the outstanding organization and artistry Jennifer brought to the table. We chose the classic package and we were blown away by her attentiveness and the way in which she was able to transform our vague style ideas into a concrete and beautiful presentation. The flowers, table settings, vintage trappings could not have been more perfect! Jennifer made planning straightforward and undaunting, and the day of we were able to sit back and enjoy our wedding. We didn’t once have to deal with anything other than enjoying the moment with our family and friends. My wife and I were operating under a tight budget and Jennifer made it seem like we spared no expense. Everyone at the wedding raved about the style. Jennifer has an amazing eye for detail and was able to transform our vision into a dream wedding. We are still getting compliments from family and friends about their favorite wedding (which says a lot since we are at that age where there seems to be a wedding every month). You must use Something Blue for your wedding!
Kandis Harvey of Something Blue was an absolute lifesaver for me. I’d been handling all aspects of planning my October wedding on my own for about a year, and because so many of our “vendors” were friends that volunteered to help, it made it a little difficult to corral everyone and make sure everything was where it needed to be. We hired Kandis for the month before and day of our wedding, and I will forever be indebted to her for making our day absolutely perfect. From the moment we chatted, I felt immense relief — her confidence and professionalism were very reassuring, and her enthusiasm brought back some of the excitement that had been pushed aside by stress. As an admitted perfectionist, it’s super difficult for me to trust other people with something this important. Kandis was not only supportive and understanding, but when a hiccup did threaten to disrupt our plans the day before the wedding (and I started to freak out), she took care of it right away, all the while providing a sounding board for me to vent to. On the day of our wedding, she coordinated so well with the venue and vendors — friends included — that I literally had nothing to worry about (an unusual state for me to be in). I’ve already recommended this vendor to friends, and will keep doing so — thanks so much for everything, SB!
I went back and forth on whether I wanted to have a wedding designer for my wedding because we all know how much weddings can add up to be. Well after much thought I met with a few coordinators and as soon as I met with Jennifer I knew that she had to be a part of my big day. She has this way of making you feel so at ease and when I thought my vision in my head didn’t make much sense, she was there to help me and make my vision come to life! Not only was she so amazing to work with she is so talented at what she does. My wedding decor was beyond my expectations! I walked into my reception and it literally brought tears to my eyes. Thank you Jennifer and something blue for being so amazing! You made my day extra special and I can not thank you enough!
Something Blue was outstanding. This lady does it all!! She was extremely creative, inventive and had a beautiful vision. She’s truly an artist. Her Flower arrangements were breathtaking. The day of my wedding, I was to be able to just relax and enjoy my day! Jennifer took care of everything, she is a very patient and kind person she knows how to deal with any obstacle, including pushy family members. I can’t imagine my day without Something Blue coordinating every detail I could have wanted. I’m forever thankful for her involvement in the best day of my life! Thank you Jennifer! You’re one of kind.
To all brides considering having a wedding coordinator, I want to reassure you that it’s one if the most essential vendors at a wedding. My husband and I had a destination wedding, and, as with all weddings, the event had a lot of moving parts. Many guests were arriving days before the wedding. The rehearsal dinner was at one location; the wedding ceremony was at my hometown church; the reception was at a separate golf club; and the Thank You lunch was at my parents’ home. The girls got ready with me at one hotel, while the boys prepped with my husband at a separate hotel. And, all our other key people, such as moms, dads, sponsors, readers, etc. got ready at their respective homes/hotels. We hired vendors from both Hawaii and California for our big day. Needless to say, I felt overwhelmed just thinking about how it would all come together.Thankfully, Kandis was our day-of coordinator. But she became more than that. Kandis became a great point of contact for our various vendors, a delivery person of sorts for favors, flowers, and last-minute drop offs, a timing guru to keep us on track, a hair stylist for our flower girl, a resource for the kitchen staff during the reception. I’m sure she did a hundred other things I was unaware of... And that’s why, on our wedding day, I was the most calm bride ever =)I can honestly say that I remember every moment of our big day, from the moment I woke up, to our vows, to the our conversations at our sweetheart table. I had no concerns or worries or unfinished details to deal with. Kandis made it so easy to just sit back and enjoy each other and our time with family. After all the months of planning, she made sure that everything we wanted happened like clockwork. Thanks, Kandis, you were such a joy!
We hired Jennifer to help us to plan our wedding just 3 months before our wedding day. Even if it was a simple wedding (we were only 4), she had a lot to do in a short time. Actually, since we are French we had no idea on how to plan our wedding in SF (plus we had a low budget). She found the venue, suits for our 2 witnesses, the make-up artist, the photograph, the restaurant, the officiant, and she made my bouquet, my crown and the boutonnieres. And everything was perfect. The only thing we had to do was to enjoy the day!! So thank you Jennifer :)
Something Blue saved us! I was working a lot and my fiance was in grad school when we were planning. There just weren’t enough hours in the day to get done all the crafting and creative ideas we wanted. We also wanted someone with professional expertise to help guide our vision. Because of Jennifer our wedding was perfectly executed and not a single detail went unplanned or forgotten.Vendor Highlight: We were pretty particular about floral arrangements. We wanted everything to be in-season and local to the SF Bay Area. Jennifer actually hand-selected and arranged all of our florals for the entire day! We got so many compliments on how amazing everything looked. The photographs speak for themselves! If we had it all to do over again we’d hire Something Blue every single time. I recommend her services to my recently engaged friends and recommend Something Blue to The Knot community as well.
Jennifer and her team helped me with my wedding last year. I picked Jennifer because I liked her handmade, vintage chic style and it fit perfectly with the aesthetic I wanted for my wedding. She helped me with the invitations, the floral design, the overall schedule, coordination with vendors, putting together decorations, and day of coordination with assistants. I had really great vendors and a wonderful site picked for the wedding, and everything came together beautifully in the end. Several of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
Jennifer and her team did our wedding day coordination, but they also did so much more! Jennifer met with us a couple times before the wedding, and was always available for consultation and vendor recommendations. She was invaluable in helping us come up with a game plan for the ceremony and did an absolutely amazing job coordinating the rehearsal; our wedding went very smoothly and was on schedule the whole time! The DJ she recommended from Sound In Motion, Nick, was great, too; they work very well together. It’s impossible to list everything they do in this review, but we really appreciated it all. I didn’t have to worry about anything and got to enjoy my entire wedding day stress-free. The icing on the cake is that her pricing is very reasonable — worth every penny!
Throughout the planning portion of our wedding, Jennifer was always available, offered help, and ideas. We decided to book her for day of coordination, florals, and a la carte service for chalkboard signs and table numbers. Our guests were blown away by how great the floral arrangements were and how cute the chalkboard signs were designed. Thank you Jennifer for making our wedding beautiful!
I am so happy to write this review because I was/am/always will be sooo grateful for Something Blue for helping create my dream backyard wedding. From our very first meeting, my fiance at the time and I, knew we wanted to work with them. They were so polished, organized, professional and friendly. They seemed beyond their years and we appreciated their approach. On top of that, we knew we wanted a rustic/vintage feel for our backyard wedding and after seeing examples of their work on their website, it sealed the deal for us. We chose the coordination and planning package and rented their entire gorgeous collection. We worked with Kandis and she was such a doll and such a pleasure to work with. She had amazing ideas and also took in my own ideas and helped create what I felt was beyond my hopes for our big day. Her team focused on every last tiny detail with perfection. When we walked into our backyard my jaw dropped. It was a complete transformation and I couldn’t stop staring at all the amazing details. They are so creative!! Flowers and candles were placed strategically & perfectly everywhere, hanging mason jars, awesome popcorn bar, super cool photo booth, guest signing area, gift/card table, rustic signage, beautiful sweetheart table, decorated family tree, etc. It was a fairy tale. The flowers Kandis picked out were absolutely spot on. They coordinated & managed the entire event and when it was all said and done, they cleaned out quietly. We would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. Our wedding would never have been the same without them, not even close, and by hiring them, relieved me of so much time, planning and stress. I love this team dearly and wish them a lifetime of success and happy wedding planning. From the bottom of our hearts, my husband and I THANK YOU KANDIS, JENNIFER AND TEAM. XO
Jennifer Edmon was an absolute dream to work with. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her. I utilized Jennifer’s services for day of coordination, but I must say, she was a key component of the planning process. She helped keep my mom and I organized as our plans developed, she always made herself available for any planning related questions, and she offered her honesty and expertise throughout the entire 8 months that we knew her. Some wedding planners will often refuse to perform day of coordination without a planning package. Others will charge you an outrageous amount and subject you to additional fees if you have planning questions along the way. To be honest, I found most wedding coordinators to be snobby and rude. Jennifer was a breath of fresh air and quite frankly, a total bargain when I consider how much support she provided. Jennifer and her team executed my wedding plans beautifully and without issue. Something Blue, Weddings by Hand is truly a wonderful, personable service. On my wedding day, I felt that Jennifer was a part of my family. The day would not have been the same without her. Thank Jennifer and team for all that you did to make my wedding day such a joy! xoxo
As a wedding planner myself, I could tell from the minute I met Jennifer that she was exactly what every bride needs in a wedding planner: smart, competent, resourceful and organized. I never once changed my mind in the year leading up to our wedding! As with every wedding, there are always things that don’t go according to plan. However, our wedding was definitely on the extreme side of the scale :) Not only was there an unexpected heat wave (our wedding day was a record setting 113 degrees), but due to the massive amount of A/C being used in the area, there was a blackout at the end of the evening about 30 minutes into the band! Jennifer and her team respond beautifully to all the trials of the day and she actually took what could have been a crisis and made the day even more memorable than I could have planned instead. She was incredibly professional and I am still so grateful for how well everything went despite all of the natural disasters of the day!
Hiring Jennifer was the “BEST” decision we made out of all our wedding planning. My daughter and I workrd closely together planning her wedding although we felt we had things in control we could not have pulled it off without Jennifer. My daughter hired Something Blue for Day of Coordinator. We met her by chance at a Bridal show. From the moment we met her we knew we were good hands and made the right decision going with Something Blue. We had spoken with other coordinators, some made us feel our moderately budgeted wedding was beneath them and others did not offer nearly as much service for the price of Something Blue. For what Something Blue offers for Day Of Service is a steal. Jennifer provided us with helpful advise. She was always available to answers questions. Most of all she gave us a sense of calm and confidence throughtout our entire planning process. My daughter’s wedding was beautiful and was flawless. If there was any problems we were aware of them. That is the beauty of Jennifer and her team! I “HIGHLY” recommend Something Blue.
This is probably one of the best things we did when planning my daughter’s wedding Jennifer helped us for about a year with all of the planning, provided many suggestions such as a wonderful photographer, flowers in which Jennifer did all for a party of close to 300, advise when it came to pricing, what should and should not do’s. Here expertise took the stress from me which being my only daughter I wanted an absolute perfect day and Jennifer and her team made this all happen. They handled the day any issues were all taken care by her and her team. If you are a mom and want that perfect day for your daughter contact Jennifer she will make sure if happens. One sad thing after the wedding was not having are wonderful meetings with her but we will still keep in touch since she made us feel like we were family...
Jennifer and her team made my wedding the amazing event that it was. I hired Something Blue, Weddings by Hand, as a day-of service after my fiance and I met with Jennifer briefly. She worked around my schedule to meet and gave us such great advice upon our first meeting. It was also extremely affordable!I was so impressed with how professional, timely and efficient the team was. They made every detail come true, from coordinating the vendors, recognizing my style and vision, and timing everything to perfection, while I was able to relax and enjoy the day, knowing that all the little things would get done.Thank you Jennifer and team for making my wedding dreams come true!
Jennifer was an absolute delight to work with throughout the wedding process. I had a lot of ideas and she was able to help me sort through them and figure out what would work best with the venue and theme that we had. She was always calm, reassuring, and cheerful—often offering to help me with projects if I became too daunted!Her team also did an amazing job decorating our reception venue! They placed flowers and candles throughout the venue—numerous guests commented on how beautiful the setup was.One other thing to know—Jennifer has an elite team of interns and assistants, so they can handle even large weddings and big tasks with ease. I don’t know how other wedding planners do without helpers. They were able to quickly and efficiently tackle any task, from putting up decor to helping with clean up.Throughout the process, Jennifer was professional, kind, and helpful. She definitely helped my wedding be the beautiful day that I was envisioning!
I can NOT express in words how AMAZING Jennifer and Something Blue is. They literally made my dream weddding happen. Every single detail that they put into my day just made me smile ear to ear all day long. Jennifer and Kandis made my boquet and all my bridesmaids boquets the night before the wedding, they looked SO beautiful, it looked like something that would have costed hundreds and hundreds of dollars! When I eventually saw the end product when I walked down the aisle, I was literally in shock! Everything I told Jennifer she did that plus SO much more! She listened to every detail that I wanted to go into my wedding. My wedding really would not have been what is was without Jennifer and her team. My wedding was in my pasture and the reception was in our barn, Something Blue transformed my backyard into a dream land! Every person that came up to me at my wedding told me they were speechless with how beautiful everything was, that is all becasue of Jennifer and her team. Some incidents happened at my wedding that Something Blue handled perfectly. I had a locket on my boquet of my Nana who passed away and after I was done taking pictures in our pasture I noticed the locket had fallen off my boquet. One of Jennifers interns was walking by and heard what had happened, I was a little upset, she told me, STOP worrying I will go search for it. Not even 5 minutes later, she came back and handed me my locket. That to me was amazing. She didn’t tell me, “you’re crazy, that pasture is an acre big, we will never find it.” She took it upon herself to go look with no one asking her. That meant so much to me and she knew how important that locket was to me. Kandis also did a very selfless thing by walking with my flower girl down the aisle, becuase my flower girl had gotten scared. She didn’t hesistate to go down or try to pressure my flowergirl to go down. This is what I loved most about Something Blue, they never made things dramatic and on this day many things can be dramatic. They just go with them. Another amazing thing two of her other girls did was, when I walked out of my backyard into my pasture and headed to the aisle, I had two doors hiding me the whole time so no one could see me. Well those doors were very heavy and there was suppose to be three girls holding them, but due to Kandis having to walk the flower girl down there were only two! They are very little girls also, but once again they made a very slefless decision for me and did it! I kept apologizing and they kept tellling me to stop it! My dad helped all he could, but I was so thankful they did it! They could have told me, we cant do this becuase it’s too heavy. I will be reccomending Jennifer and Something Blue to ALL my friends and family. They blew me away with their professionalism, hard work, and creativness. I will never be able to express my thankfullness to Jennifer and her team. Something Blue is the way to go! You will regret not having them around! I give Something Blue a million and one...
Something Blue was a lifesaver for me!! I got engaged on June 22nd and had my wedding August 4th... A six week engagement! Me and my fiancé wanted a beautiful wedding with a low budget and fast, and it would have been impossible without Jennifer and Kandis! The founder, Jennifer was very professional and got the ball rolling right away. Never once did she think it was impossible even with six weeks and about a $3000 budget. It helps that she is very creative and does a lot of DIYs! Not only did she hand make my cake topper an veil, but she had a lot of beautiful decor I was able to rent from her. We had a gorgeous beach wedding and her assistant, Kandis was in charge of the set up the day of. I was amazed at how beautiful everything looked! It was better than I imagined! Something Blue knows just how to implement your unique style, and make everything come to life! You will not regret working with them!!
Jennifer is the best wedding planner you will get! She is very helpful in all aspects of you big day. Also, because she is so creative, if there is just that one something you have to have she can help create it or bring you to the right person to make everything possible. Her team was so kind and gracious and made sure everything ran smoothly, looked amazing and that I was having a stress free day! (which I was even though my day was a bazillion degrees outside!) Everything Jennifer does is creative, personal and exactly what you want. She turned my wedding into something I only dreamed in my head and used what I had to make it work and look beautiful. If you are looking for someone to help you on your special day, to make everything turn out and beautiful, and to have the best day of you life my friend Jennifer here is the woman to go to! Thank you again for everything you did on my wedding day!
When I got engaged, I was in nursing school trying to finish and we had set the date for right after finals week. I needed someone to come and take over everything for me! I was too stressed to even think about a wedding, and then I found Jennifer from Something Blue. She listened to every idea I had and found a way to make it happen on my tiny budget. She was there for me from beginning to end, walking me through what was realistic and what was unattainable for what I had, and gave me the confidence I needed to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The planning process was fun, even though I was MIA for 90% of it up to my ears in schoolwork. She took care of every detail. When the day came, I got to enjoy the day with my family and just see the event unfolding from my window. She did my flowers and everything, I can’t say enough wonderful things about Jennifer and her team. Such creative people with an absurd amount of patience and kindness! Love them!
