wedding planner

Jenell Givelber
Houston, TX

I believe the most important characteristic in a wedding planner is listening to the client and understanding their wishes for a perfect day, therefore I make listening my first priority.

I'm a highly motivated, energetic professional with extensive experience in retail, event planning, finance, business, operations, logistics, vendor relations and personnel management. My entire career I've been a top performer with effective interpersonal, communications and public relations skills.

I look forward to taking the stress off of you so you can enjoy your big day!
