The Wedding Planner Experience

June 24th, 2013


Last Years Workshop was a HUGE Success! We had an amazing group of planners in our workshop and I still stay in contact with them. Many of them have started their business and have strived in their first year! Many have developed new ways to market their business and are seeing great results since last August. One planner in particular worked as an intern with my company after the workshop and got offered an amazing job opportunity as a lead event manager in an large, reputable event production company.  Another planner who attended the workshop boosted up her company and now has 3 times the amount of clients she did when she attended and has been published in over a dozen magazines and wedding blogs. I am so proud of all of the accomplishments of the planners in the last 2 years so you can imagine my excitement for this years workshop.

Happenings in the Land of Ohh…

June 14th, 2013

Hello Everyone! I know it has been FOREVER since I have updated the blog but our season has slobbered down and now gotten us to a somewhat normal work schedule which means that I will be able to blog the backlog of wedding and events we have done in the recent past. There has been so many amazing events we will try to blog them ALL.

It is important to me that everyone reading this knows that we are dedicated to our clients and therefore have not been able to put too much time to this blog. Its solely because in our firm, our clients come first. I do promise that we are all working hard at updating the blog and will be doing so in the next coming weeks.

In the mean time, Please follow JackieOhhEvents on instagram as we post set ups, events, and the latest things happening in the Land of Ohh…

Thanks again for visiting! Come visit us soon as there will be tons of event eye-candy to see.

Wishing you a beautiful summer!

Suset and Jesus

April 8th, 2012

[ngg_images gallery_ids=”75″ display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_slideshow”]

I know I know I know…. its been since forever that I have had a chance to blog. Its been a crazy in 211 and 2012. Not only did we do 28 events last year, but I gave birth to the most perfect little boy! He is the pride and joy of my life and it has been the most amazing experience I have ever had. Needless to say I’ve been a tad busy so I have not had the chance to blog in a long while but I’m back at it. There have been sooooo many amazing events in the last year I dont even know where to start but here is one of my favorites, Suset and Jesus’ wedding which we put together in less than 6 months! Martha and Jesus Ramirez from UDS Photo captured these great images! As always, thank you so very very very much UDS Photo.

[singlepic id=1256 w=750 float=center]

The wedding ceremony took place at Coral Gables Congregational Church and at the Beautiful Biltmore Hotel. Thanfully it was such a beautiful day. Being that October is so unpredictable, we were blessed with bright blue skies and great weather. It was a tad hot, Im not going to lie but I rather it be hot than rainy! We had guests and the Bridal party walking across the street to the church so great weather was a huge relief!

[singlepic id=1257 w=750 float=center]

What girl doesn’t love a little bling, well okay fine ALOT of bling? … lol

Las damas y los caballeros =)

[singlepic id=1258 w=750 float=center]

Suset getting herself ready to meet the man of her dreams down the aisle. I helped her with her dress, she had about what seemed to be a thousand buttons in the back lol. Anything for my “bruji” (a nickname we call each other- come to think of it Im not even sure how we came up with it…). I am so thankful to have such a unique relationship with my brides. Its something I look forward to and enjoy throughout and after the wedding.

[singlepic id=1259 w=750 float=center]

Suset and Her Hubby Jesus took a couple of minutes to take pictures at the church just them too. Its such a special moment and really just about the only couple of un-interupted, silent, and peaceful alone time that they have for the rest of the night. The couple left in their car (one of my “favs” I ust add) back to the hotel where the party was already on its way, and did this crowd know how to party!

[singlepic id=1260 w=750 float=center]

HUGE Kudos to the design team- this was not-so-simple undertaking! Rick Interian, Yani, and the Team at Avant Gardens did a spectacular job in the decor of this wedding. Suset wanted something “different and unique”… honestly most brides want that too. Suset was so great in letting us “run” with our ideas. W wanted to something that was a huge wow factor but still keeping in mind that she wanted it not to look “over done”. We knew exactly what she wanted and with her giving us creating freedom, this is what came of it. The base of the tall centerpiece in the middle of the clover table was covered in hydrangeas and curly willow and dendrobium orchid sprays flourished the top of the design. Any table with such “top heavy” decor needs a strong floral base to compliment it. A combination of roses, hydrangeas, orchids, and callas were placed in a lush design to balance the center of this massive 18 guests table. Each of the tables also had their own centerpiece- this is a very important part of  THIS table design. Of course candles were used throughout for lighting and to give the element of romance that this bride wanted in her reception. The Alhambra ballroom is so stunning that simple, saturated lighting can make a great impact.

[singlepic id=1261 w=750 float=center]

The round tables in the clover clusters were dressed in ivory ruffle linens and complimented with gold chivari chairs. The 8 foot royal tables were dressed in a gold and ivory modern damask pattern and ivory chameleon chairs. The royal table design was a long centerpiece as a runner on the table matching the lush floral design on the clover tables. The third table design was a smaller and a bit different version of the large center design in the clover tables. It all flowed perfectly and looked absolutely stunning!

[singlepic id=1326 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1324 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1325 w=750 float=center]

The couple shared their first dance and family formalities at the beginning of the night in order to make sure that right after dinner it was time to party! hey partied until the morning hours. We had a blast planning this wedding. Thank you Bruji for trusting in me and the team so much. Te quiero!

[singlepic id=1327 w=750 float=center]

As always, I HAVE to give credit to every one who was such an important part in making this wedding day dream come true. I am HUGE believer in You are as good as the individuals in your team”. So here it goes! To the Biltmore Hotel staff, Bruce Barbaree and Deborah Scherling – my dear friends and ultimate wedding gurus, Martha and Jesus Ramirez from UDS Photo, Rick Interian, Yani, and ALL of the Avant Gardens Team, Leo Espinosa and his team at DVP Studios, The very talented Rosie Cunil at Elegant Temptations, Nuage Designs for manufacturing the most amazing items for us to be able to rent for our events, Ubi Merrero aka “Jubes” for mixing his latin beats, and all of the other people who work so hard with us, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hugs <3

Double the Birthday – Double the Fun!

May 5th, 2011

[monoslideshow id=69 w=820 h=300]

Twins are so much fun!!!!!!! These twin girls are so loved by so many people, but not more than by Mom and Dad. The twin’s mom contacted and wanted to plan an amazing event that would be memorable for all of her guests and a blast for her twins. The theme of the metamorphosis of butterflies was established by Mom but it was up to me and the Glam Squad to make it come to life. They thankfully gave me a love of freedom in conceptualizing the design and coming up with the ideas. So….. Let the fun begin!

Martha Ramirez and Mayleen Gonzalez for UDS Photo joined in for the fun that night ad took the great pictures below. Thank you so much ladies for everything. =)

[singlepic id=1189 w=750 float=center]

Our Fabu-Venue was White Space, an empty warehouse off of 595 and Sheridan St. We used the largest of the two studios which has a pre-function area and a large event space. The pre-function we split into two- the left as a MEGA entrance and the other for the flip book photo booth which you will see more about below. Rick Interian and his Avant Gardens design team hung a wooden structure from the ceiling over the entrance table scape. Mechanical butterflies were added throughout the entrance piece and were so life-like; it truly made this more of a show stopper. On the wall, we hung two canvases (one of each girl) for guests to write them a Happy Birthday note.

[singlepic id=1199 w=750 float=center]

Uplyte did a great job on the draping and the lighting. They now have White Space permanently draped which is great! The lighting around the room was a soft purple with a mix of pink. It was the perfect combination for our bright decor and whispie ambiance.  Gobos were made to replicate the butterflies on the invitation and they placed on the draping behind the cakes.

[singlepic id=1200 w=750 float=center]

The cake table was so fun to design. Cake confectioner extraordinaire, Rosie Cunil of Elegant Temptations took our ideas and colors and ran with the wind. She custom made acrylic pieces to hold up the twin cakes as well as the mini parfaits that were placed behind them. Hanging crystals and butterflies were placed on the table and acrylic  to incorporate our butterfly theme.

[singlepic id=1201 w=750 float=center]

Alexia’s Cake, Olivia’s Cake, and some yummy desserts for guests. When we sang Happy Birthday and the twins blew out their candles, we had a massive confetti blast to start the night off right!!!!!! So cute!

[singlepic id=1202 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1203 w=750 float=center]

I love the set up of this event. We set it as a cocktail style reception as there was never a chance to do anything else BUT party. =) There were several sets of tables both high and low. We added 8ft long tables extended 48″ inches in height to add something a little different to the decor. All of the floral decor we kept very organic but with pop colors as our twins LOVED pink and orange.  Furniture from Room Service Rentals was placed throughout the room and in the VIP lounges.

[singlepic id=1193 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1204 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1191 w=750 float=center]

In the shoe valet, the twins had custom made converse to match their dresses. SOsoooo cute!

[singlepic id=1190 w=750 float=center]

We had two separate VIP lounges in the space, an Adult only lounge and a Teens lounge. Its important to assure that the adults have an area that is seprate from the teens to be able to order alcoholic beverages. When parents come to drop their kids off, this will make them feel assured that their teen will not try any funny business. Plus, any time you have a large event, I highly suggest you hire a reputable bartending/catering company who will not under any circumstances allow under age drinking. In creating a Teens bar, they felt just as important in their section. We served a fruit punch as the signature drink and it was embellished with three butterfly gummy candies with a skewer- it made it looks cool! Kids love cool lol.

[singlepic id=1192 w=750 float=center]

Chris from Delicious Catering did a great job in making all of the stations yummy and oh so delicious. We served kids comfort food but upped it up a notch and added some gourmet touches to it. This was a great way to make sure that every guest would like the options on the stations.

[singlepic id=1197 w=750 float=center]

We hired CircX to come and bring out the girls to their party. I love these customs, they actually light up! The butterfly ladies did an acro-improvisational performance and then they brought out the birthday girls. It was cute and so unexpected, the guests loved it!

[singlepic id=1198 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1194 w=750 float=center]

In the middle of the party which by the way was off the chain! thanks to Big Will, Power Parties, and the Fabulous and Famous Miami DJ, DJ ZOG, we opened up the photo booth room. This allowed the guests to go into the room and enjoy doing the photo flip books a favors and great memories of the night.

[singlepic id=1195 w=750 float=center]

Happy Birthday Olivia and Alexa! It was a great pleasure working with you and your family in this magical night. Congrats to the Mendez Family!

[singlepic id=1196 w=750 float=center]

Thank YOU SO MUCH to all of our vendors. It is so important to me that I take the time to thank them after each post as without them, we would not be able to what we do. To Dan Cohen and his team at UPLYTE and White Space for all of their hard work and allowing us to take over =). To Rick Interian and his Avant Gardens team- you did a stupendous job! Chris from Delicious Catering- ab-so-lute-ly delicious! Circx and Power Parties– Thank you so much for the great entertainment!

Chantalle and Danny

April 18th, 2011

chantalle + daniel from Belvedere Films

Chantalle and Danny’s wedding was such a FUN wedding. Not only was planning the wedding a blast but boy do they know how to party! We had such a great time thru the entire process and it’s clients like these who give us the reins that truly enjoy every second of their wedding. Thank you to Carlos Baez for taking the great pics below! I hope you enjoy the story and Chantal and Danny’s wedding Day.

[singlepic id=1205 w=750 float=center]

Whats a Bride Getting Ready Suite without some great champagne and Louboutin’s? Chantalle has such a presence about her, the camera loves her and she loves the camera. This beauty was born to model =).

[singlepic id=1206 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1207 w=750 float=center]

Chantalle saw her grandmother and got so emotional. I was actually tucked away behind Carlos and it was a moving moment; I teared up as well. Thankfully after the tears came many laughs and smiles.

[singlepic id=1208 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1209 w=750 float=center]

Its so important to talk to your team and make room for pictures with the bride by herself before the craziness of the getting in the car and getting to the ceremony happens. There is a feeling of peace and anxiousness right before the ceremony but its the only time where we will have the bride’s attention to the camera and getting amazing images of her just being her beautiful self.

[singlepic id=1210 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1211 w=750 float=center]

Chantalle’s father just about he is to give away his little princess…. so cute! I love moments like these.

[singlepic id=1212 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1213 w=750 float=center]

Finally Mr. and Mrs.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[singlepic id=1214 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1215 w=750 float=center]

Chantalle and Danny opted not to be part of the cocktail hour and take some time with Carlos Baez to take some great shots around the Epic Hotel in Downtown Miami.

[singlepic id=1216 w=750 float=center]

Her dress was a DREAM!!!!!!! One of the most gorgeous gowns I saw all year!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[singlepic id=1217 w=750 float=center]

Now many say this and that about our city but seriously, look at this view! OMG How could you not just fall in love with the city jut by the views that we have here? We got to sneak into a secret spot in a secret space and this is the view we got- not bad huh?

[singlepic id=1218 w=750 float=center]

This couple are such hams for the camera! It was so great that they took the time to get these pictures before the reception started…. which brings me to the next event of the night— party time!

[singlepic id=1219 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1220 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1221 w=750 float=center]

Gil Sosa designed some great floral centerpieces for Chantalle and Danny’s wedding. She wanted to make sure that each table was just a little different so buy using a variety of ceramic and glass vases, Gil did just as she asked and it looked so pretty! Classic Elegance- exactly what she wanted!

[singlepic id=1222 w=750 float=center]

Some times the simplest of details can make the biggest difference. I like to make sure we use the entrance piece or place card table again throughout the night. Not only is it typically a beautiful floralscape, but it is placed in a spot which will greet guests as they enter the wedding and guests will pass it as they leave. Favors are great to have as a cute memory of the wedding but putting it on the table is sometimes not the best idea. The place card table is a great way to make sure you get the most use of the money spent of the table floral.

[singlepic id=1223 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1224 w=750 float=center]

Some great moments that night. =)

[singlepic id=1225 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1226 w=750 float=center]

Chantalle changed into this ubber sexy number after dinner. She looked amazing and rocked it!!!!! You go girl!

[singlepic id=1227 w=750 float=center]

Congrats Newlyweds! It was so amazing being able to be part of such a special night in your lives. We wish you nothing but utter bliss! Hugs and Kisses!

[singlepic id=1228 w=750 float=center]

Thank you to ALL of the vendors that worked with us this Evening! Ivette and the Epic Hotel Staff- it’s so easy working with you all, thanks for making it easier on us to do what we do, Carlos Baez and his team and Belvedere Films– You guys Rock! Gil Sosa Designs, DJ Daniel Carreras, Cake Designs by Edda, and everyone else who worked so hard on making this perfect day a reality, thank you!

Jackie Ohh… Events in The Knot Ultimate Wedding Lookbook

February 7th, 2011

The NEW Knot Ultimate Wedding Lookbook is out and on book shelves and Jackie Ohh… Events together with UDS, Avant Gardens, and Elegant Temptations have two events published! Although ALL of my events are very special to me, these two are extra special as they were for my own wedding. This is the first time I blog anything of my wedding but I have to blog this. We are in a BOOK! Whoo Hoo…

The First spread is under Centers of Attention on page 55.I highlighted the picture in blue. It is a daylight picture of my ceremony at Vizcaya Museum on the oh-so famous casino mound. The ceremony at night was a dream! Shot out to Rick Interian for making my ceremony feel like heaven!

[singlepic id=1154 w=750 float=center]

The Second spread is under Petal Pink on page 142. The small mini cakes were what the guests at my bridal shower received as their dessert. So cute! Check it out, Ive highlighted the pic in petal pink =).

[singlepic id=1153 w=750 float=center]

A Huge thank you to the KNOT for publsihing us. It’s a true honor to be a part of your lookbook.

Kathy and Jesse

February 4th, 2011

[monoslideshow id=68 w=820 h=300]

The Newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse and Kathy Marinelli! Congrats!

A HUGE Thank you to Stephan and Candace Maloman for taking the awesome pictures you see below. It was such a great experience working with this husband and wife duo. Check them out by clicking on their names and view Kathy and Jesse’s wedding on Malomans’ Blog by clicking HERE.

[singlepic id=1151 w=750 float=center]

Kathy’s Vera Wang gown. She chose Diana as we gown of choice. It was one of the most gorgeous and unique gowns I had ever seen. She looked like such a princess =). Kathy and Jesse’s wedding was featured on the Vera Wang blog recently. Check it out HERE. This dress was Kathy’s second wedding dress as the first one she had that was a wedding gift just was not exactly what she was looking for. She found this Dress at Ever After Miami.

[singlepic id=1147 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1112 w=750 float=center]

Kathy’s bridesmaids assist her he in getting dressed. It was a great time for them to bond and have some true girl-time before the ceremony and reception started. Not only does it make for great shots, but the memories are priceless. When you plan your getting ready, try to plan for all of your bridesmaids to be ready and dressed to assist you. I promise those images will end up in your album. =)

[singlepic id=1113 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1114 w=750 float=center]

Jesse, the groom wearing Hugo Boss =) Here are some pics of him getting ready. What a calm groom! He was seriously cool as a cucumber, laughing and cracking jokes all day.

[singlepic id=1111 w=750 float=center]

The ceremony and reception took place at the Fontainebleau Hotel in South Beach. Our plan was to have the ceremony in the back lawn of the hotel however the weather was not cooperating with us that day and although we attempted to have the ceremony outside regardless of the cloudy skies, it started to rain 30 minutes before we were expecting guests and we had to move the ceremony inside the hotel. Thankfully, we had the small ballroom adjacent to the reception ballroom as a back up.

[singlepic id=1115 w=750 float=center]

A big thank you to Eduardo from Petunia Flowers and his team as they rushed to get these 13 foot trees through the back of the house and into this ballroom in a record 15 minutes. UPLYTE was a great help as well! We moved a portion of our pipe and drape from the reception room to drape the back of the stage to make for a beautiful back drop for the wedding. After it all, it was a great ceremony and the bride and groom loved it! Phew- that was a close call but we are always ready for whatever can come our way. In Miami, it typically is weather related … unfortunately we are used to this but we make the best of it and smile!

[singlepic id=1116 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1117 w=750 float=center]

And they are WED! Congratulations guys!

[singlepic id=1118 w=750 float=center]

[singlepic id=1109 w=750 float=center]

The ballroom was gorgeous! Thankfully, Kathy and Jesse’s colors were in perfect correlation with the colors already existing in the ballroom. Kathy loved the combination of black and white with pop color of bright blue and accents of peacock feathers. We used a peacock blue dupioni silk table cloth – it was the main color of the table.We paired the table cloth with black chiavari chairs with slate cushions, black square chargers, black vases, and white flowers accent the tables. Peacock feathers were added to the centerpieces and as a napkin accent. The lighting in the ballroom changed with the crazy beats of the Djs mixes. It made this crazy crowd rowdy- what a great party! Lounge areas from Room Service Rentals flanked the white dance floor.

Toasts are such great moments at weddings. These toasts were so great! There are a slue of emotions throughout the day of the wedding activities. It’s always good to show them. PS> waterproof mascara is a must ladies.

Rosie Cunil from Elegant Temptations designed this cake. It was so daring for a bride and groom to choose a black fondant cake but Kathy and Jesse were up for being different and unique. It’s so great when our clients give us creative freedom. The white fondant pieces that Rosie designed came out from the cake in 3D. It was insanely beautiful!

During the first dance we shot blue, black, and silver confetti from cannons onto the dance floor and over the bride and groom. Sorry Stephan for scaring you buddy, I told you it was coming. lol. The bride, groom, family, and friends partied the night away and what a party it was!!!!!!!!
