One for the Ages! Zena and her team went beyond our expectations to ensure our wedding was truly magical. There are a lot of people out there that can plan a party but there are very few people out there that can create an experience. That is exactly what Zena does she creates an experience that turns into amazing memories. We decided in December that we wanted to get married the following April. Our only goal was to make sure that it was a fun party that we and our guests would remember forever. Oh and it had to be in NSB and locally sourced. Then we met Zena and she figured out a way to turn our party into an upscale picnic theme offering an amazing evening filled with the right ambiance, beautiful decor, awesome music, delicious food , great cocktails and a ton of fun. Not sure how she turned “we just want to have a fun party” into a moment that kicked off our lives together as husband and wife. But she did and we will be forever grateful. I have been in the event planning field for many years and truthfully was very hesitant to hire someone to plan my party. But I absolutely made the right decision to hire Zena and her team. Somehow she figured out a way in just a few months to make sure our special day was about the love we shared for each other and the party was about celebrating that love. I know I would have missed that point if I planned this event myself. Zena - thank you for your commitment to getting to know us, your incredible attention to detail, your persistence in keeping us on track, all the laughs along the way and for executing on a wedding that was truly one for the ages!

We had such a great experience working with Zena.  She's so creative and had many great ideas that I never would have thought of if I had planned my wedding myself.  She's also so  sweet and generous.  A genuinely good  person that we had the pleasure to work with.  I can't thank her enough for making our Wedding the best day ever!

Mother Of The Bride

Without a doubt meeting Zena was a blessing for us. She organized all vendor's meetings, managed the contracts & organized every detail to the letter. More than anything, she added amazing personal touches that were inspired by our dreams & pins, not requests. This, in and of itself, was priceless and speaks volumes for her passion to make any event amazing for those who trust her with their visions.

Zena is so talented. She is creative, artistic, and makes a point to go above and beyond! You can give her ideas of what you want and she makes it a beautiful reality! She absolutely loves what she does and has a great passion for making special events spectacular! Our wedding so much more than I even could have imagined. It wouldn’t have been as beautiful with out the artistic talents of Zena.

I was lucky to find my true soul mate in life which lead me to my soul sister Zena. She was amazing in that special way of making our wedding process and our special day even beyond our wildest dreams. Can't wait to plan an anniversary with Zena.

I am forever grateful to my husband John for seeking out Zena to make our day exactly what we envisioned. One meeting with Zena and she had the perfect vision of what we wanted and immediately began working on executing the PLAN! Give her creative freedom and she will give you a magical day! I envy her imagination, her vision and her gift to make dreams reality! Oh…and as an added bonus, her and her ‘lovely assistant” became our very good friends! :)
