Vendor Spotlight On: Jodi Raphael Events

Vendor Spotlight is on Jodi Raphael Events; a Boston-based event firm that takes care of every event detail from concept to execution.

1. How did your business come to be?

At the beginning of my career I was a producer at a local television station in Boston. When I left I was producing 22 hours of live tv. Events are similar to live television in that I only get one chance to get it right… there are no “do overs”. I then went to work for both an entertainment company and a corporate event company. I felt as if clients needed more personal, one on one attention and that is how and why I started my business. I walk our clients through the whole process from choosing a venue to entertainment, menu and design. They know that they have an advocate in me and my company- a friend and a partner.  I also help with family dynamics and the situations that can arise with many family members involved.

2. What are the services you offer?

We offer full event/wedding planning and coordination in addition to month of/day of coordination. Basically we will do what it takes to help a bride/host plan a memorable and fabulous event.

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your services?

We are in Newton, Ma and will travel to wherever the event is- all over New England and beyond. We often work with couples who are out of town and planning to have their wedding in Boston or the same scenario with parents who are out of town.

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?

As soon as they are ready to start the planning process, but a year out is typical.

5. What is one piece of advice you always give brides?

I tell brides that they need to hire a professional to take some of the stress off of them and to avoid making expensive mistakes and then to trust the pros to do their job- so they can enjoy their day!

Vendor Spotlight On: Unique Weddings by Alexis

Vendor Spotlight is on: Unique Weddings by Alexis; Boston-based event firm led by the amazingly talented Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara.

1. How did your business come to be?

I started out in graphic design and marketing before I got into corporate event planning. After several years of corporate event planning, I decided to take on weddings. I just loved the long term planning and relationship building with clients. To continue my focus on servicing and designing weddings, I started my own business.

2. What are the services you offer?

Full service wedding planning, wedding design, partial planning services, and month-of planning services.

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your service?

I operate out of Boston, MA, but I service weddings all over New England as well as destination weddings. I have worked on weddings from Anguilla and Bermuda to Pennsylvania and Washington DC.

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?  

One year is ideal, however, we are sometimes booked as far out as 24 months and sometimes in as little as 5 days prior to the wedding date. We have been hired 4 and 5 weeks in advance of weddings with little to nothing booked other than the date and venue. We can make any time frame work!

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

I tell all couples to enjoy their wedding no matter what unexpected things arise. If they look like they are having a great time, all of their wedding guests will feed off their emotions and they will enjoy themselves as well, even if something terrible, unplanned or unwanted has happened.

Vendor Spotlight On: AE Events

Vendor Spotlight is on AE Events; an event design and production company located in Boston, known for their expertise on large-scale events.

1. How did your business come to be?

AE Events was founded over cocktails at a backyard bbq!  Friends and now business partners, Christine Altieri and Jana Gimenez came from different parts of the event world and wanted to create an event planning business that offered a high level of service, helped clients to define their vision and built positive, constructive, and lasting relationships with clients. 

2. What are the services you offer?

AE Events is a full-service event planning firm. We can help clients with everything from the venue to the visuals – or in the case of brides – from Miss to Mrs!  We assist with all styles of events and celebrations.  We tailor our services to what each client needs to make their event unique to them. 

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your service?

Our offices are in South Boston, MA – but we are happy to travel both nationally and internationally. 

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?

Ideally we ask clients to book at least one year from their intended event date.  The tighter the time frame, the fewer choices you may have to secure vendors, venue and your preferred event date.  We can always work within a tight timeline, but why rush?!

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

When looking to hire an event planner, don’t look solely at price.  Talk to the planners, get a sense of their personalities… take time to meet in person.  Your event planner will be part of some very personal conversations – regarding budget or delicate family dynamics (among other things) and it’s nice to know you feel comfortable around them and their ability to hear your “voice” and vision. Wedding planning brings out all kinds of opinions from others.
