Jenna is a gift from the Wedding Planning Gods!!! Revel and Roots was referred, along with a list of other coordinators, by my wedding venue. Jenna immediately set herself apart by being insanely responsive. I work in a business where responsiveness is key, so it means a lot to me. She immediately set up a time to meet in person and it was love at first sight! Jenna understood my thoughts for the day of and went far above just month of duties. THIS GIRL IS CONNECTED! She referred me to ALL of my additional vendors. To say I'm not the most organized bride is an understatement. But luckily, I had Jenna. She kept me organized and helped out tremendously. My wedding day was such a breeze and I owe it all to her. If I could change one thing, I would go back and hire Jenna to plan my full wedding! Thank you for everything!

Jenna was pivotal in planning and executing our perfect wedding day. We began working with Jenna very early on in the planning process and she made the process of visiting different venues and choosing our favorite quick and efficient. Along the way, it was abundantly clear that she has built strong working relationships with many talented vendors in the industry. I took her recommendations on photographer, musicians, stylists, calligraphers, and so much more. Her relationships and expertise saved me a ton of time and personal research in the planning process. Most importantly, Jenna was everything we could've asked for on the day of our wedding. Her vibe was fun yet focused and I didn't lift a finger or worry about a single detail. All my time and focus on the big day was spent with friends and family (exactly how I imagined it). I recommend that any bride in Colorado, Chicago, or beyond work with Jenna!

Jenna and I worked together for 8 months to plan my dream wedding in Aspen, CO! She has a proprietary system where we have checklists, budgets, mood boards, design layouts and more to keep us on track, and has strong relationships with vendors to find the best fit for what my vision was. She truly capitalized weekend of, kept all guests informed with detailed outlines and how to prep for an altitude wedding. Her presence, organization and attitude weekend of was remarkable and the wedding went off without a hitch!

There is no doubt in my mind that my day wouldn't have been what it was without Jenna. I'm typically very organized so I wasn't planning on hiring anyone, but she helped me take all of the individual elements and tie them up into the most perfect day. There is absolutely no way I would've been able to do what she did! She is so kind, loving, responsive, and her creative ability is so incredible. She's not afraid to DIY something if it means saving money for the bride either, which is so comforting! If you are on the fence about hiring a day of person or even a wedding planner in general, HIRE JENNA. You can thank me later! I didn't stress about one single thing, she took over and intercepted vendors and anyone who had questions. This is huge on your day!

My daughter got engaged June 2017. She wanted her wedding to take place in downtown Chicago, August 2018. I had a friend that told me about a wedding planner that she knew and recommended. The company name was Revel & Roots. I told my daughter to contact the company. She did, and spoke with Jenna the co-founder. Jenna met with my daughter and her then fiance. They just hit it off. They both felt so comfortable with Jenna. They felt she understood how they envisioned there wedding day to feel. Jenna spoke with them about a vision board and put together all there wedding day wishes. Even though Jenna's company was located in Denver, CO. She was in Chicago often. She set up all the appointments for us to meet with her and all the vendors. Such as florists, linen companies and design teams. She wanted you to be able to see first hand what the flowers looked like, how they smelled. Also to pick out your vases and candle holders or any other accessories you might need. She also wanted you to be able to see, touch, and feel the textures of the linens and the colors. Jenna knows everyone and everyone knows Jenna. She will try to find ways to get the exact look you want for the best price. She helped and guided us through every question we had. Starting with venues, save the date cards, invitations, bridal dresses, bridesmaid dresses, bands, photographers, ceremony and menu cards, table numbers, favors, whatever it is she is there to help you. If she doesn't know she will find someone that does. It did not matter. On the day of the wedding we found out my daughter's bracelet was a little too big. My daughter was panicking Jenna said don't worry just give it to me and I will get it sized. I didn't think it was possible but sure enough she got it sized and had it back to my daughter right before photographs. My daughter also wanted a videographer. Jenna told us about a guy in California that she knew. Well let me tell you Jenna was right again, his name was Johnny B. The most talented,amazing man with the BEST personality. Also her choice for the Design team Ashley from Exquisite Designs was hands down the BEST designer in town. The wedding was held August 25, 2018 in downtown Chicago. The wedding was Picture Perfect and Jenna was with us the ENTIRE day. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her and all of her expertise. The day was the best day of my daughter and new son-in-laws life. I cannot say enough about Jenna and her company Revel & Roots. I would highly recommend them. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. THE BEST!!!

Jenna was great from the start in helping us mold our vision for our wedding while making sure it stayed true to who we were and what we wanted. She has lots of fun ideas, good relationships with a lot of fantastic vendors, and is a very genuine person. You can tell she has a passion for event planning and definitely knows what she is doing. We had such a memorable wedding and still have guests talking about it more than 2 months later.
