Planning Perfection

My husband and I found Heart to Heart Occasions after our previous planner decided to dissolve her business. When we first met Jennifer, we were a little nervous because of our previous experience, but her friendly and positive personality immediately made us feel comfortable and helped us get our wedding planning back on track. Jennifer was very accommodating and willing to meet us close to where we live. She was also responsive to emails and checked in on us frequently, which made us feel like we were her only client. What I appreciated most was that she met with us in person several times before the wedding. I feel like that helped her to really understand our vision and expectations for the day-of. I can’t express how thankful we were to have Jennifer there handling everything the day of the wedding. She meets well and quickly established a rapport with our other vendors. Having here there to coordinate all of our vendors and take care of anything that popped up allowed us to have a stress-free wedding day. The day before our wedding, she was instrumental in making sure our reception venue was set up just as we pictured and that everything ran smoothly at our rehearsal. The schedule that she put together for us was also extremely beneficial to organizing the flow of the day. My husband and I both agree; we wish we would have been working with Heart to Heart Occasions from the start. Jennifer helped to make our wedding day perfect in every way. I would definitely recommend this planner – Jennifer is excellent!

 Must Hire HEART TO HEART!!!!

I had an incredible experience with Jennifer Hartman and Heart 2 Heart Occasions this past March. Jennifer was creative, insightful and brought wisdom and experience to the table. I was highly impressed by both her professionalism as well as the personal touches she brought to the day. Hands down! Jennifer Hartman is the girl you want planning your day!

Completely Pleased!

Jennifer Hartman, of Heart 2 Heart Occasions, did excellent work as wedding planner for my daughter’s wedding. She handled things professionally and competently, was easy to reach and was prompt in returning calls. She was consistently pleasant, personable and helpful. I appreciated her calm, easy-going manner and how very well-organized she was in all areas of her responsibilities. She managed all the details excellently and efficiently and made this important occasion for our family come off smoothly and beautifully. The comment I continue to hear from our guests is that it was a “really enjoyable evening.” I believe this was the case due in great part to Jennifer’s excellent work. I highly recommend her.

Our Wedding

Our wedding planner, Jennifer Hartman, was great for us. I was not nearly as involved in the process as my wife, but Jennifer did an outstanding job of keeping my wife calm when any bumps were encountered with vendors, and took things off my wife’s plate when it was overwhelming her. She was there throughout the big day making sure that everything was running smoothly, and I thought she was great and would certainly recommend her to any other future brides. My wife gave very similar high praise for Jennifer. Thanks for helping to make it a day we will never forget!

Didn’t miss a beat

Heart 2 Heart was absolutely great all the way from early planning through to the big day. When my we got engaged, we were living overseas and had to rely on Heart 2 Heart to do a lot of the groundwork and local coordination early on. They helped my Wife (and me as needed) every step of the way and didn’t miss a beat even though we were far away from Cleveland. There were many emails, phone calls, texts, meetings, that went above and beyond my expectations. Heart 2 Heart had so many great recommendations and suggestions for all the other vendors and services in the Cleveland area; we really would not have been able to do it on our own. On the day of the wedding, everything went exceptionally smooth for me and the Groomsmen. Jen H. and everyone involved with the Wedding was professional, energetic, accommodating and always went out of their way to make our lives as stress-free as possible!

Best Money I Ever Spent

I hired Jennifer as my Day of Planner. I wanted to enjoy my wedding and not worry about anything. She made that happen. She was my go to person whenever I had a question. She gave me lists of vendors when I asked for suggestions. But most importantly when I didn’t know something she advised me. She confirmed all my vendors a week before the wedding and made sure everything went smoothly. She made sure no one had to worry about everything. I planned so long and hard I wanted to be a guest at my wedding and not worry who was taking the presents to the hotel or if a name card was missing who would take care of it. I wanted my bridesmaids and mom to enjoy so Jennifer was the best decision I made. Out of everything I paid for at the wedding this was the best money I spent. It was a perfect day because of her.

I will recommend her!

Our wedding planner Jennifer Hartman did a great job during the entire process. She responded to all of questions and needs in a timely manner. Our wedding day went off without any problems or delays. I will recommend her to anyone who needs a wedding planner.

A guy’s view…

If your fiancé doesn’t want everything to be perfect on your wedding day, or if you have been through it all before, then you may not need Jennifer’s help. I love my wife, but did not love wedding planning. As our month-of planner Jennifer helped us sort out a detailed schedule for the wedding day, manage our vendors and answer all of our questions. If I could do it differently, I would have used Jennifer sooner so that she could help with even more of the planning. Everything went smoothly and she was there to help along the way. Thanks Jennifer!

Wedding Ceremony Search

I used Heart 2 Heart Occasions to help me find a venue for our wedding ceremony. I did not feel that I need a wedding planner but when I learned that they would be willing to customize a package just for my needs I was sold! The cost was very fair and Jennifer was extremely friendly and helpful! I was shocked at how quickly she worked and the list she provided for venues was more than I had hoped for! I would highly recommend Heart 2 Heart Occasions for any needs that you may have for an upcoming wedding! Jennifer is very passionate about what she does and wants to help make your dream become a reality!

Jennifer was truly amazing!!

She was such a big help while planning our wedding. There was no way we could have done if without her!! We hired Jennifer to help us plan the wedding from start to finish. We met with Jennifer when Josh and I first got engaged and started planning right away. We told her what our visions were for our wedding and Jennifer came back with ideas and vendors she thought would be able to pull it off. Jennifer was professional and very organized throughout the entire process. She contacted all our vendors and created a timeline for the day of the wedding which she distributed to each of the vendors. I was confident that our wedding day would go off without a hitch because we had Jennifer!! She was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend hiring Jennifer to help make your dream wedding become a reality!!! Thank you Jennifer!!

Best Decision We Made!

We made a great decision by hiring Jennifer for her month of service! She was extremely organized and efficient. She listened to our concerns and plan for how we envisioned the day “flowing.” The thought of making a timeline for the day was overwhelming to us. Jennifer took on this task and made a timeline for day and made sure this was distributed to all of our vendors. She called and confirmed with all of our vendors the week before the wedding and responded promptly to all of my questions, concerns and last minute changes. If we were to do it all over again, we would have hired Jennifer from the beginning to have her help in planning the entire wedding! She went above and beyond the day of the wedding and we consider this money well spent!!

Amazing coordinator!

Jennifer’s attention to detail and personality are the perfect combination for a wedding coordinator. She was able to take our ideas and bring them to life! Guests at our wedding commented on how beautifully executed all my DIY projects were presented at our venue. She turned our wedding venue into a beautiful and fun space that captured our personalities and theme. Jennifer was truly wonderful to work with and conquered the day-of logistics and overall schedule perfectly. The day flowed beautifully and wouldn’t have been possible without her. She executed everything seamlessly and left nothing for us to worry about. Throughout the planning process Jennifer was extremely helpful, especially during our times when I was back in Ohio meeting at the venue (and through email). She shared her perspective and experience and helped shape what our wedding day would become. Overall, I couldn’t have seen it coming together without Jennifer. She was a pleasure to work with and is beyond generous with her time and help. Jennifer comes highly recommended and you absolutely will not regret her as your choice.

Heart 2 Heart Occasions is an A+

I selected the month of package from Heart 2 Heart for my October 2013 wedding, and I couldn’t have been more pleased! Jennifer was so attentive and professional the entire day. I was able to enjoy my wedding without a worry in the world because I knew Jennifer was making sure it all went as planned. If you are looking for someone who is personable and detail-oriented to guide you through your big day, I would recommend Jennifer and Heart 2 Heart every time!

Absolutely wonderful

Jennifer was absolutely wonderful and a huge help in planning our wedding. From a groom’s perspective, I was hoping that the wedding planner we hired would A) be organized and professional, and B) get along with my bride and work together to make her vision become reality. I will say that Jennifer did a wonderful job on both accounts. Jennifer is very organized and professional and always kept us on track as we prepared for our wedding. Jennifer has a terrific network of vendors she recommends and all of them were fantastic. She and my wife “hit it off” the first time we met her and their relationship got stronger the more we worked with Jennifer. I believe Jennifer is well worth the investment and she gets a high recommendation from me!

A Groom’s Review

Jen from Heart 2 Heart Occasions was an awesome asset to our wedding planning process. She was very helpful answering any questions we had throughout the planning process and she was always just an email or phone call away. You know you’re working with someone special when you give her name to other vendors and they smile and say how wonderful she is. From months and months before all the way to the ride back to the hotel, she was there to help and handle anything that comes up. I would highly recommend her services to anyone planning a wedding.

Great for my Day-Of!

Jen was very kind and helpful. We were very happy to have her with us on the wedding day as she took a lot of the stress that would have otherwise fallen on me or my mom.

Caring and efficient planner

When my daughter and I met Jennifer at our first meeting, she was pregnant with her twins. We thought “mm…”. It turned out our worries were so unnecessary! Jennifer not only took great care of her baby girls, she totally handled my daughter’s wedding smoothly and beautifully! Always we were timely notified and reminded things we needed to do on our ends; any questions or worries were answered and resolved swiftly. To all you future brides, I highly recommend Jennifer of Heart 2 Heart Occasions to be your wedding planner!

Dealt with last-minute issues

Jennifer was very attentive throughout the entire planning process. She made my wife feel very supported. Jennifer was able to deliver within promised time line, which was very tight. She also effectively dealt with last-minute issues and worked to address them. I would highly recommend Jennifer for your wedding planning needs.
