MORE ABOUT JENNIFER REYES (aka Jenn, and sometimes J-REY):
Besides being the owner of AWE Productions, LLC, I will also be your wedding planner & coordinator! I focus on getting to know each couple to understand all the quirky details that make them fun and unique. Let's work together to make your wedding personal, enjoyable and memorable for you AND all your guests.
Maybe you need someone to help with all the events leading up to your wedding? Engagement parties, bachelor and bachelorette (also known as stag and hen parties across the pond), wedding showers, welcome events, rehearsal dinners, and day after brunches are all part of the wedding planning process. My background in project management & marketing make for a calm, creative and detailed-oriented experience while planning any of your wedding events ... resulting in fun time for you & your guests at your special occasion!
I have over 20 years of experience as an event planner & project manager for private, non-profit, & corporate events. I have planned weddings in both California and Oregon at a variety of venues and varying wedding budgets. I love meeting and working new people andI am an active member of the Wedding Network USA, Portland chapter. To keep on-trend with the what is happening with to-be-weds across the country, I annually attend wedding professional conferences.
In my free time, I enjoy trying the latest food & drink spots in Portland, networking with other small business owners, making terrariums, discovering new music, regular meditation and hanging out with my 2- and 4-legged family members. When not planning events, I volunteer with the Q Center, Portland’s LBTQIA+ community center (including the new elopement event, #iDoAtTheQ with local celebrants, started in 2016) and help transport surrendered dogs for basset hound rescues in Oregon & Washington.
