Two Little Birds Planning was simply outstanding. Jacklyn and her team were on every detail from start to finish. I HIGHLY recommend their services.
I can't say enough about Jaclyn from Two Little Birds. I was initially unsure about hiring a wedding planner considering my detail-oriented, "control-enthusiast" nature as my husband so nicely puts it, but my dad convinced me it would be helpful to have some expert advice and direction. I agreed and it may have saved my relationship :) Yes, that is a bit dramatic, but seriously, when times got tough, Jaclyn was there to assure me it would be okay and even took on a few projects that would have otherwise been nixed for sanity's sake. I would highly recommend working with Two Little Birds if you're someone who needs an extra pair of hands and some peace of mind while juggling a wedding, a full-time job and other personal responsibilities. Both Jaclyn and Megan (her assistant) were there on the day of to set up, clean up, and make sure things went smoothly. And smoothly they went. The day was perfect and we would not have been able to have as much fun if they weren't there every step of the way.
I had the pleasure of working with Jaclyn Fisher of Two Little Birds Planning for my wedding on July 5th, 2014. I researched multiple planners online and set up a handful of appointments in a one week period back in June 2013. I met with Jaclyn first and immediately following our meeting, I called and canceled my other appointments – I knew she was the one. Not only did I find Jaclyn to be incredibly attentive, thorough, and professional upon our introduction (and throughout the entire planning process), but I also found her to be approachable and relatable. With each and every interaction - by phone, text, email, or in person – Jaclyn still made me feel as if I were her only client (even while knowing that she had multiple weddings before and after my own!) She would always get back to me in a timely manner and would respond in ways that made me feel respected and appreciated.
Admittedly, there were times when my type-A would take over and send Jaclyn PAGES of pictures, thoughts, and plans (something that probably would have driven others crazy) and yet, Jaclyn would always reply with exactly the level of attention and intensity that I was hoping for. Often, I would open my email to find her responses with highlighting, bolding, notes, and suggestions. She addressed every single point and made sure to question or ask for clarification so that she could completely understand and commit to our vision.
Jaclyn helped me to feel completely comfortable throughout my planning and most importantly, put my mind at total ease as my big day neared. Thanks to her EPIC timeline that included every little detail imaginable, my wedding weekend was stress free and absolutely flawless. Choosing Two Little Birds was easily the best decision we made – a big thank you to Jaclyn – we couldn’t have done it without you!
After talking with a handful of planners in the Philly area, I immediately knew Jaclyn was "the one" after we finished our initial consultation call. From the beginning, Jaclyn was incredibly thorough, detail-oriented, organized, and thoughtful. As a bride, I was very hands-on in terms of wedding planning, but Jaclyn was the perfect partner for me. She went through all of my emails carefully to make sure she took care of all of the details I wanted for the wedding. I particularly valued her time and efforts in the last month as the wedding - she took care of a very detailed wedding weekend schedule and contacting all of my vendors - which was greatly appreciated during the most stressful few weeks of the process. Similarly, Jaclyn handled everything with care and ease the day of the wedding and I honestly could not have survived the day without her!
Words can hardly describe how priceless Jaclyn and TLB planning were to us during this whole process. We found TLB by searching for wedding planners in our area and found that it was one of the top-rated planners. But more than that, my husband and I instantly liked Jaclyn when we met her and found her to be direct, honest, caring, thoughtful and one of the most coordinated people either of us has ever met. Hiring TLB was probably the best thing we did for this entire wedding, and the closer it got the more we realized how invaluable Jaclyn was! From coordinating vendors and monthly timelines to keep us on track to saving us from last minute Etsy disasters and coordinating beta centerpieces, Jaclyn was amazing! Among everything she also found ways to make sure that my husband and I were able to snag some time to ourselves to relax. Instead of feeling stress about our rain delay and the timeline of everything, I just had a glass of champagne and was so relieved that Jaclyn could swiftly deal with any snafu. I highly recommend TLB to everyone!
Even from a groooms perspective, Jaclyn and Two Little birds planning were truly an asset to the wedding planning process. We found it invaluable to always have a list of trusted vendors to choose from without having to read endless reviews online. Also, Jaclyn kept us on track with everything, and even ran to the store the day of our wedding to pick up some last minute things! I cannot recommend them enough.
From the start Jaclyn was both professional, knowledgable, and personable. Speaking as a groom, Jaclyn was very sensitive to the fact that I had a hard time concentrating through all of the details. She never judged and would always explain things to me on the the points I needed to weigh in on. Furthermore, my wife was pregnant and juggling work, and Jaclyn's "can-do" attitude, responsiveness, and willingness to go to toe-to-toe with vendors gave us some much needed stress relief. Ultimately, we ended up with the most amazing wedding we could imagine even though it rained and we had to go to plan B. Jaclyn had helped us design the magical and unique wedding we wanted in just 9 months. We could not have done it without her, and it was such a success that the wedding was featured in a prestigious wedding blog (Green Wedding Shoes). I rarely have fun at weddings, so thanks to Jaclyn for making it possible to have a ball at my own!
Of all the hundreds of wedding decisions we made, the absolute best one was hiring Jaclyn. In the nine whirlwind months we worked together to plan our dream wedding, not only did Jaclyn earn our complete trust as a wedding planner, but we also feel that we made a true friend. From beginning to end, Jaclyn was professional and efficient while remaining flexible and fun to work with. She was always attentive to our ideas and honest about what could and could not be done. Whenever an idea proved to be impractical, she was great at coming up with creative alternatives.
After five months of planning, we decided to move our wedding date from September 2014 to May 2014. With 300 invited guests, the much shorter timeline could have resulted in a planning disaster, but Jaclyn handled the change so seamlessly that we barely felt the difference.
On the day of the wedding, my husband and I joked that Jaclyn must have magical powers because she somehow managed to appear at our sides whenever we wished for her. She calmly and gracefully herded us in the right direction when we lost track of the itinerary, answered our questions when we got confused about what we were supposed to do or say, and brought us drinks and ice cream when we were too busy greeting guests to enjoy any of the abundant food. When we arrived at our honeymoon suite after the wedding, we almost expected Jaclyn to be there to let us know what to do next.
The wedding, reception and rehearsal dinner were all just perfect and everything we had hoped for. We were told by many of our guests that it was the best and most memorable wedding they'd ever attended, and Jaclyn even got us featured on Green Wedding Shoes. Words really cannot express how grateful we are to Jaclyn for making our dream wedding a reality. Thanks, Jaclyn!!!
I'm a do-it-yourself, keep it simple kind of person, and I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever hire a wedding planner. BUT... I also found myself completely overwhelmed at work with a wedding date quickly approaching and too many loose ends. Two Little Birds came to my rescue. They were willing to customize a package for our small boutique event. They suggested excellent vendors I never would have found on my own to alter my dress, host the ceremony, photograph the event, and ensure that we actually got married on the day that we had planned. While we didn't use the "day of event" services, Jacklyn called to ask if we needed anything and sent texts and emails to make sure that we were happy. Without Two Little Birds, I'm not sure we would have managed to pull it off. Two Little Birds was certainly the best planning decision that we made. Thank you!!
I used Two Little Birds for their "day of" wedding coordination services, and I could not be happier. I was comfortable doing most of the planning for my wedding myself, but I wanted to be able to hand the reins off to someone for the big day. That "someone" was Jaclyn of TLB.
From the moment I met her, I knew that my wedding day plans were in capable hands. In the weeks leading up to the big day, Jaclyn was in constant communication with me, helping me put together a timeline, and making sure that she had every detail, vendor, location, time, and item in check. She attended our rehearsal, where she helped coordinate our bridal party and readers, providing them with instruction and direction. And on our wedding day, she was there bright and early with a calm and reassuring demeanor.
Jaclyn and her associates at TLB were instrumental in allowing me and my husband to be able to simply relax and enjoy one another, our friends and families, and our special day. After a year of painstakingly planning each and every moment of this day, you should be allowed to enjoy it fully and completely. You simply do not want to be worried about when the florist will arrive, or how many votives are being placed on the tables!
Jaclyn and TLB helped my wedding day run smoothly, and effortlessly. Their service is excellent, and an amazing value. A relatively small investment in TLB will reap limitless benefits on your wedding day, I assure you. I would highly recommend their services to any brides looking for a reliable, professional, fun, and friendly planning team.
My husband and I liked Jaclyn from the moment we met her and hiring TLB was one of the best decisions we made. Jaclyn worked incredibly hard-- definitely more than just "day-of" planning-- and helped coordinate with our vendors to make sure everything ran seamlessly. Her timelines and thoughtful phone calls and meetings ensured that I was more calm and confident in our plans, and had every detail I needed. Moreover I was completely confident in Jaclyn and her team. On the day of the wedding everything was seemingly effortless as the wedding we had envisioned came to fruition. From photos around town to transportation to setting up the venue with our DIY projects, TLB made sure things went to plan. Everything was just perfect and I know we could not have done it without TLB. Most importantly they were all so lovely and we had so much fun and felt so comfortable with them. I would highly recommend hiring TLB for your wedding!
I could not say enough great things about Jaclyn and the Two Little Birds Planning team. I could not have planned my wedding without them! They are extremely detail oriented, focused and an absolute pleasure to work with. I had minor dress crisis on the way to the church and Lanie stepped in and fixed the problem in no time and without a sweat. They were just amazing! My sister is getting married this summer and is also using them as well. I would highly recommend their team to anyone and everyone looking for a wedding planner!
Jaclyn / Two Little Birds provided planning as well as day or coordination for my daughter’s wedding.
I live on the other side of the country, and so it was rather difficult to be in regular contact with vendors and attend to details like contracts.
Jaclyn made all my concerns go away. She was especially useful in that the caterer for our venue was not the best in terms of communication, and getting back to you. (Though the caterer really did a great job when the big day came. I think he’s a very good caterer, but not a very great business professional.) Because Jaclyn handled the communication, it saved me from having any “difficult” communications with him, which might have then become awkward on the day of the wedding.
I had the unusual situation of having BOTH my daughters get married this year, within 6 weeks of each other. I wrote A LOT of checks this year. I can say without a doubt that the one to Two Little Birds was the best investment I made. Her level of service was exemplary throughout.
On the actual day of the wedding, Jaclyn was the first one there, and the last to leave. She handled every detail, and made it a stress free day that we could just enjoy. It was a truly lovely, unique, and special wedding. And Jaclyn was vital in making that the case. I do not often give any vendor or service person an unqualified 5 star rating, but in this case it is easily deserved.
Philly brides, listen up! Two Little Birds were a huge part of the reason why my wedding day was absolutely perfect. Not once did I have the bridal meltdown everyone says they had on their wedding day/week leading up to the wedding, and that's because I knew that everything - the timeline, communication with the vendors, set-up, tear-down, last minute problem solving - was being handled by two of the most professional and just-plain-nice people I worked with for my wedding.
Right after my (now)husband and I got engaged, I remember the first moment when I realized what a HUGE job planning a wedding truly is. My mom had sent me the "gift" of two wedding planning books that were each about an inch and a half thick... and while they were very helpful, none of them really helped me to understand how to COORDINATE the DAY of the wedding. Everything out there is about how to choose a dress, a vendor, or a bridal party. Then how to look pretty. My mom and I sat down and talked about how we felt there were really only three goals to the day: 1) get married, 2) be as stress free and open to happiness as possible, and 3) help everyone to have a blast! And so, anticipating the obvious stress of hosting 200 guests, a possible last minute car breakdown/wardrobe malfunction/vendor no-show, we started looking for a day-of planner.
Two Little Birds was recommended to us by our venue coordinator, so we set up an interview with Jackie. We also set up interviews with two other companies, but after meeting Jackie, we even cancelled those interviews... she's seriously THAT great! Our timeline was so detailed and well developed that it was 22 pages long! Jackie really guided the process of creating the timeline and helped to anticipate a lot of areas where we might have questions or logistical issues. She's truly the best!
I can't tell you just how fabulous Jackie and Carolyn are at what they do - but I do highly recommend that you find out...
I am so glad I hired Two Little Birds to help with my day-of wedding coordination. A couple of years ago our friends got married and on the day of the wedding they found out the party bus they hired to take the bridal party around for pictures and whatnot was broken. The bride, groom and both of their parents ended up having to make frantic calls to every limo company in town to find someone available for immediate service on a saturday during wedding season. It was that day that I knew I would absolutely hire a wedding planner when I got married, because if something like that goes wrong, I did not want me or anyone in my family to have to be the ones freaking out trying to fix it.
When it came time for me to plan my wedding, my biggest issue was planning the timeline for that day and figuring out the logistics of everything prior to us getting to the venue for the ceremony and reception. Jaclyn and Caroline stepped in and took all of that off my shoulders. I told them a rough idea of what I wanted to do that day and they took it from there. They were able to make an in depth timeline of who would arrive where at what time, who was bringing what, who was taking what home, etc. There were so many little details I never would have thought of myself that they took care of. The day before the wedding I was so busy getting myself ready, the last thing I wanted to be doing was more wedding planning. It was such a relief knowing TLB was calling all of my vendors confirming what time they would be arriving and making sure everyone was on the same page and all of our timelines matched.
The day of the wedding I didn't have to lift a finger. I was determined to be a stress-free bride (or at least minimal-stress bride) and I think I accomplished it but only because I had them there to help. Hiring TLB was money well spent, especially when I consider the piece of mind it gave me knowing that if something did go wrong, they would be there to fix it.
I used Two Little Birds for day-of wedding coordinating services. They offered a lot of help for their very reasonable price. Having them took a lot of worry off of me, the bride, and my family. They took care of everything the day of, and did a ton in advance to help us prepare. We didn't have to worry and could just enjoy our party. I can't recommend them enough. Jaclyn and Caroline were lovely to work with and really generous with their time.
We can't thank Carolyn and Jaclyn enough for their help in making our day perfect! We decided to find planners to help coordinate our Philly wedding, since we live 700 miles away. We also wanted help for the week of the wedding, and especially for the day of to take work off our hands and ensure everything ran smoothly. These girls were awesome. We interviewed several area planners, and we picked them for their value (without any hard selling tactics), professionalism, and we just loved their personalities right away. They helped us plan the rehearsal dinner, reviewed contracts, recommended vendors, helped with our questions on etiquette, and really took the reins in the last few weeks to make sure all that we and of our vendors were on the same page. A HUGE thanks to these girls. We highly recommend them!
Two Little Birds could not have helped us to make the wedding any better. They were perect in every way. It was a pleasure to work with them on all aspects of this wedding....which was beautiful!
Jaclyn and Caroline were absolutely fabulous! I used them as my day of planners. They helped the weekend run completely smoothly, and take care of tough tasks that arose. They created an amazing weekend timeline and confirmed everything for me. They took care of every little problem so I could enjoy the day with my new husband and family and friends. Jaclyn and Caroline were professional, friendly, on the ball, easy to work with, and genuinely excited for us! Highly recommend them!
Jaclyn and Caroline are the best!!! They are extremely professional and their attention to detail is unbelievable. They truly listen to the voice of the customer and make the wedding day memorable, special, fun, and most important- not chaotic.
