Dear Jackie,

We just received and viewed for the first time, the video of Sara and Kyle's wedding. WOW! What a great wedding! We knew that we enjoyed every single minute but we now have the video to constantly remind us of that truly wonderful day. I really think that we could submit it for a television show and it would rank with the best. That is because, we had you, to guide and plan the event with us!

Every detail, every decision, every nuance was addressed in a professional and caring manner. All issues, whether they were the most important or the least significant, were handled with tender, loving care. As a family, we all feel that you got it right and that you will, forever, be a part of our family going forward.

The day of the wedding becomes a blur, but the video truly shows just how beautiful the day was as it unfolded. The venue, the decor, the flowers and the MUSIC!!!!! OMG! What a GREAT band! We are still getting comments and inquiries regarding the band. I know we struggled to "hear it" your way, but you were OH SO RIGHT! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I also want you to know, that from the day of our first interview to the day after the wedding, we so very much appreciate your responsiveness to our requests, you taking the crazy phone calls at all hours of the day (and sometimes night), the confidences we shared and your ability to connect with our daughter, son-in-law and all of our family (especially the mother and father of the bride) were what made the difference!

Thank you for all your hard work and personal sacrifice. On behalf of the Lechner Family....Thank you for all the wonderful memories.....

Much love,

Jill Lechner
Mother of the Bride

Simply put..Jackie Bressler Events is the reason my wedding was perfect! I planned my Delray Beach wedding from Washington D.C. only visiting the location once, so Jackie and her staff were essential in the entire wedding process. Jackie took charge of all issues and always came up with the best solution for us. The vendors she recommended were amazing and fell right within in my budget. She managed these vendors seamlessly and executed my vision throughout, always keeping in mind the small details that I would mention to her in passing. I think of myself as an organized and thorough person BUT Jackie puts me to shame. She is so detail oriented yet creative and resourceful. She came up with all these wonderful solutions whenour venue wouldnt let us do certain things. No request was too big or too small for her; she took charge of every situation. She thinks of everything and handles all situations with such professionalism and accuracy. I met with a handful of wedding planners before hiring Jackie but Jackie stood out as not only a fantastic wedding planner but a great and calming force, which was essential throughout this process. The day of the wedding, our ceremony was outside and a storm decided to hit right as I was about to walk down the aisle. Jackie took charge, got everyone inside and dry and when the sun came out, dried everything and organized everything for the ceremony to continue outdoors without losing any time (or her cool). I wouldn't even be surprised if she organized to have the rainbow come out as I was walking down the aisle;) She is amazing but more than that she is fantastic person to deal with and her warmth and compassion is priceless. You want Jackie to have your back not only on your wedding but for every life event. Hiring Jackie was by far the most essential thing I did for the wedding well other than finding the groom. You will not go wrong with Jackie...she is perfection.

Jackie,

I cant tell you how grateful I am for all the hard work you did for my 75th birthday celebration. Beyond the magnificent dcor, spectacular food, and enchanting music, I was moved to tears watching the DVD you created commemorating my life. It is a priceless treasure and there is nothing I could possibly value more. I can only imagine the countless hours, effort and attention that went into producing it. People like you make other peoples souls blossom. I cant thank you enough for making this milestone in my life an evening that will remain in my heart forever.

"It's the best venue in Palm Beach County, hands down," says Lake Worth singer-songwriter John Ralston, who played there last fall with Dashboard Confessional. "It's a very, very cool room," says bandleader Allman, whose Honeytribe wants to be regulars there. And it's got Bressler, a New Jersey native and lifelong music fan, seeking out and booking everything from Pink to reggae legends The Original Wailers. It helps that she's a true believer who has been part of the South Florida Music scene for years. Shes who you want in charge if you want to do this right says Gallagher, owner of City Limits. We knew we needed her to help get this club up and running. And that she did.

Jackie,
Thank you so much for the amazing presentation you gave last week at our Seminar. The program was both educational and entertaining. Your musical selections were awesome and it was clear that the audience was thrilled! I hope that you heard and enjoyed the positive feedback. I was encouraged by everyone to invite you back! Thank you again for contributing to the success of a wonderful day!

From the moment we began working with Jackie all of our concerns ENDED! I called 2 planners that my venue had recommended and waited and waited for a returned call. I was speaking to a friend whose daughter just used Jackie Bressler Events for her wedding and she told me that I must contact her! I am so glad that I did! Within the first hour that I reached out to Jackie, she got in touch with me and her service and care remained this constant throughout! Not only is she extremely detailed oriented, organized, amazingly talented with design, she is caring, compassionate and FUN! My entire bridal party loved her as did our parents and so many of our guests! I NEVER worried about anything. Our wedding was beyond our expectations thanks to Jackie and her staff. My only sadness at the end of the night was that I knew I wouldn't get to talk to her daily!! But, just as my sadness crept in, my new husband and I walked into the bridal suite at the end of the night and it was beautifully decorated by Jackie with candlelight everywhere, champagne, chocolate strawberries, and rose petals throughout. She really does think of EVERYTHING! I will forever sing her praises!

Jackie,

Thank you and your crew for all of your hard work in making this years Rhythm and Blues Festival run so smoothly. You made it look so easy even though we know all of the painstaking effort it takes! We didn't think we were going to be able to have it this year since we lost our event space with the city. Thank you for coming to our rescue by providing us with a wonderful alternative so we were able to enjoy our 15th annual Fest! We are truly grateful for everything you and your staff have done to make this event happen. I look forward to working with you again. -

In my opinion, Jackie is the only choice for wedding planner, especially if you're planning it from out of state. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about the area, but she will definitely bring organization and creativity to your big day.

I had already hired most of my vendors when I brought Jackie on. I had no idea what to do with the reception area and needed help because it was on a rooftop and I wanted red lanterns hanging. Everyone kept telling me they couldn't hang lanterns out there, but Jackie promised she'd figure out a way to make it happen. Not only did she come through, but she actually chose the colors & place setting for my tables, which were perfect and exactly to my taste. She also added little touches to the ceremony, which I hadn't even thought of, like putting parasols at the end of the rows and having brushes for guests to wipe sand off their feet since it was on the beach.

Her 'day of' services were also impeccable. Since my wedding was outside, she came up with a rain plan. She prepared me & my family the day before in case we had to move everything inside, since it had rained for 2 days before. Luckily, we were able to have it outside - no rain! - but she was totally prepared for anything. I didn't have to do anything or worry about anything that day, which made the day that much better. Jackie is always professional and has a take charge style. Actually, during our photos prior to the ceremony, my husband kept yelling out "TCB - taking care of business!" because Jackie was doing her thing while we just chilled and smiled for the camera.

I would absolutely recommend working with Jackie. She really listened to what we wanted and worked hard to make it happen. When I look back at my photos, everything looks so beautiful and I wouldn't have changed a thing!

Finding Jackie Bressler to help me with my wedding was a miracle. As a girlie girl, I had a dream of my perfect wedding. Luckily, I knew what I wanted, I just needed the perfect party planner to help me find the "right location" for the "right band". The band I wanted was the New Orleans Radiators as my fiance & I were huge fans. The problem was that The Radiators did not "do weddings". After talking to several friends in my area I was told to call Jackie Bressler, as I heard she could make my dream a reality. As soon as I told her my wish, she told me not to worry & she knew she could make it happen as she worked in the music business for years & knew who to call & she knew the perfect location. I was beyond stunned. She was telling me not to worry. Wow! Jackie Bressler made my dream wedding come true. She did so much more than just getting the band & location. She put me at ease & allowed me to enjoy planning my wedding. Any idea I threw out during our brainstorming sessions, she added to & made more special. We spent many hours on the phone going over details. She puts all of herself into her work & is so wonderful. Any bride would be lucky to have Jackie Bressler create her a dream wedding, as I know, dreams really do come true. Jackie, I know I've told you this countless times, but a few more can't hurt. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I had the most amazing wedding thanks to Jackie and Jackie Bressler Events! I wanted a "party" vibe that was not particularly "traditional". What I got was the best 'end of summer blowout' that my friends and family had ever seen! We are about to celebrate our 8th anniversary and friends STILL talk about our fantastic "party"! Jackie incorporated tie dyed yarmulkes (nearly impossible to find so she had the material dyed in the Midwest, flown to Brooklyn to assemble and stamp, and then back to us). She took a bunch of tie dyed sarongs and had them turned in to the most amazing Chuppah. So many friends loved it that I have lent it out to multiple friends for their wedding Chuppah...a tradition was born from Jackie's amazing vision. Instead of wedding programs, guests were adorned with laminated all access passes on tie dyed lanyards with the day's details outlined, which of course, helped seal the non-traditional vibe we were seeking and incorporated our love of live music, as my husband and I met at a concert. The band she suggested was so amazing that professional musician friends of ours that were guests, ended up jamming with the wedding band and at the end of the affair, the owner of the Coonamessett Inn (our wedding venue in Cape Cod) told me that never before in the history of the Inn, had he seen his entire wait staff on the dance floor at one of their events. As if all of that was not spectacular enough, when we arrived at the cabin on the Inn's property where we were to spend our wedding night, Jackie had lined the walkway with candles with custom made labels and filled the cabin with flowers, Champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and more candles!!! She even made up goody bags for our guests that not only had various foods and beverages, but she incorporated all of my favorite things (candles, custom made bath products in a wedding cake scent, etc...). Since our wedding, we have used Jackie Bressler Events for my father's 80th surprise birthday party in DelRay Beach, Florida (spectacular is an understatement) and Jackie made an amazing DVD for my nephew's Bar Mitzvah in Boston....a keepsake he is sure to treasure as he grows up. With all sincerity, I write that there is nothing Ms Bressler can not do, and with her talent, creativity, work ethic and flair, she produces events that are so far beyond comparison, she's absolutely the BEST!

As a planner myself, I thought for sure that I had this wedding thing nailed down! But you have the uncanny ability to cast a scrupulous eye over something and within a few moments, come up with several suggestions that made my thoughts and ideas that much better. You see things that others do not and have a way of understanding people that goes far beyond the capabilities of others. It is a gift that cannot be learned but one that is innate. If I lived in the state of FL, I would beg you to be my partner in this business. You are a standout for sure. The words Thank You simply do not convey enough. You are wonderful and my only regret is that I don't get to speak to you on a daily basis anymore! Ill still need my Jackie fix though so Ill be calling!

Jackie,

I wont even try to begin giving you the props that you deserve. Amazing is perhaps the only word to describe you. I have witnessed you pull things together like nobodys business on many an occasion. I watch you work and juggle so many things at once with a grace and elegance that no one can match. You are da bomb!

Thank you, Jackie for making our wedding so amazingly beautiful. It never would have been the remarkable evening that it was without your professional guidance. From our first meeting with you we knew we had the right person for the job and we could not be any happier with you and your team. I can only smile when I think about our wedding and we want to thank you for the life long memories.

Love, MayRose

Dear Jackie,

What can I say about you? Let me sing your praises. You are the most efficient, knowledgeable, hard working and pleasant person, with whom I have ever had the pleasure of working. Your work ethic, your hands on approach and your willingness to work tirelessly for any and all endeavors, make you valuable beyond measure. You are a great asset and I would highly recommend you to anyone planning any type of special event.

Most sincerely,

As the rain was blowing sideways just after sunset on New Years Eve, the production crew at Fort Lauderdale's Revolution nightclub were staunchly optimistic. In a few hours, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic would take the stage in the venues huge open-air courtyard. Overseeing the balletic frenzy, Revolution Manager Jackie Bressler tied together a zillion loose ends, most of them severely dampened from the downpour. Still, she exuded an almost beatific air. "I'm just glad they're letting me do what I'm really good at," she said. And, as always, Bressler didn't disappoint.

Jackie Bressler was an essential part to the wedding process. The moment I hired Jackie, a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders. She and her staff are very friendly and 100% reliable and gave me great direction throughout the process. Her thoroughness and attention to detail sets her apart from the average event planner. The best part is that she was available to me any time day or night, so I never felt ignored, and I could always get a hold of her. Jackie is the reason my wedding day went off without a hitch, and I plan to use her service for any event in the future! I highly recommend Jackie Bressler Events! Thanks Jackie!! Jenni G.

Jackie,

We would like to thank you for having such a wonderful party!!! This was our third year attending the Mardi Gras MonkeyBall. Each year it gets better due to the hard work of all the folks that put in the time and effort to make it happen. It's a real pleasure to come down and see old friends and make new ones. We're looking forward to seeing a lot of you at Tips in a few weeks and/or at Mardi Gras. Again, thank you for all of your hard work and for making a couple of NOLA fisheads feel at home and showing us such a good time!

When I was getting married for the second time, I had concerns about how to make an appropriate ceremony and reception. Jackie Bressler Events took care of all my concerns and put my fears to rest. Jackie led me through the entire process, start to finish. She had wonderful ideas about how to personalize my wedding so that our personalities shone through and our wedding was unique. The ceremony was more than just saying vows and our reception was warm, cozy, intimate and reflective of who we are. Jackie's ideas and ability to conceptualize are beyond compare and her talents exceeding my expectations. Once you get to know Jackie, you'll hear her say all the time..."YOU ROCK"..... But, shes the one that REALLY ROCKS!

Jackie,

Wow, you are amazing. I can't believe how much you have to be on top of. I know that everyone that enjoys your shows goes above and beyond for you because
of who you are as a person, a dynamic, caring person with such charm. Reading about all of that and all that goes into it, I'd like to somehow be a part of it next year if possible, to offer a helping hand and be a bigger part of that energy. Let me know...

All the best,
Paul

Dear Aunt Jackie,

Thank you so much for being you. You are the best aunt ever. I love you to the stars. I loved being your assistant at Jackie Bressler Events this weekend and going to the flower shop and inside the cooler with all the pretty flowers. I never saw so many flowers at one time! I liked going to Home Depot, taking the plastic and rubber bands off of the flowers and filling up buckets with water to put the flowers in. I cant wait to be a great event planner just like you. You are in my heart.

Love,

Jackie,

I started out smiling and laughing and I ended in happy, sad tears. The slideshow you made brought out so many emotions... The Radiators have brought us all together as a family, a krewe, a community for so many years here in South Florida and throughout the country....

The photo selection for this mini slideshow were wonderful. You remembered so many people (a difficult task!) and really chose ones that make you feel something and remember some great moments!

Thank you Jackie!

Jackie, Jackie, Jackie...

When my friend told me that I should get a planner for my wedding, I told her that it was unnecessary. As the wedding crept closer, and my wedding bible got fuller and fuller, I started to panic and think..yes, Ive made sure that all the is are dotted and all the ts are crossed, but who is going to connect all the dots? I thought for sure that I would be fine with the person who rented and booked our wedding, but I quickly realized that she also had so many other events to deal with and wasn't giving me the attention I needed! YOU ARE AMAZING!! Please give any potential client of yours my phone number so I can jump on the couch like Tom Cruise and sing your praises! Mark and I were beyond thrilled for all that you did for us and our familes. You really thought of everything and made our wedding day truly magical. Thank you again for being you.

Dear Jackie,

The moment I sat down with you, I knew instantly that you were the planner for me! You made me feel so comfortable so quickly and I just knew that I was going to be in good hands! My first sigh of relief came after that first meeting and never once throughout the entire process did I ever worry! Your attention to detail was incredible and the ideas you came up with to save us money far exceeded the amount we paid you!! Anytime I needed you, day or night, you were there for me. In your words..YOU ROCK! Thank you for everything you did to make our day so special.

Dear Jackie,

I don't even know where to start. I was as calm as could be knowing that you had the reins on my wedding day. I never stressed for one minute and if you did, you never showed it! My family and my bridesmaids loved that you made us all feel very taken care of! Thank you for the beautiful smelling candles in my bridal room and all of the special touches that you didn't have to do. Its what makes you stand out not just as a planner, but also as a friend. I'm going to miss talking to you 10 times a day! I'm still going to call though, ok!?

Love always,
