Jen Rios Design

Weddings are a significant event, and planning one on your own can be a lot of work, stress, and time.  If you find yourself working long hours and have little time to no time for sourcing and managing wedding venues and wedding suppliers, why not call in someone to help you? This is where the wedding planner comes in; a professional who assists with planning, design, and organization of weddings. Today we spoke with wedding planner Jennifer Rios, founder of Jen Rios DesignJen specializes in creating carefully curated tablescapes, personalized wedding, and event styling, as well as developing customized wedding details! Check out the interview below as well as some photos from her gorgeous portfolio! Enjoy.

What initially interested you into wedding planning?
I have an interior design degree and worked professionally in that field from 2007 - 2011. After my wedding in October 2011 I wasn't ready to stop planning so I quit my job at a design firm that I held for almost 4 years and followed my passion for weddings!  

How long have you been professionally designing/planning?
I've been designing professionally since 2007 only in the interiors realm. I've been exculsively in the wedding industry since December 2011. I pride myself in NOT favoring a style. I want to cater to my client's style. I don't want to be known for one type of style, I want to be unique!   

What was your favorite wedding to work on?
Rayven + Alex - November 2012! It was black, white & glam! So modern, fabulous & fun!  

Do favor a particular design style?
I pride myself in NOT favoring a style. I want to cater to my client's style. I love being creative and pushing boundaries so as long as I get to express myself I am happy. I think my design background really allows me to stand out with years of experience and knowledge in a variety of styles. I don't want to be known for one type of style, I want to be unique! 

What is your weapon of choice/anything you can't leave the house without?
Sketchbook! You never know when inspiration will hit. You must be prepared to jot down ideas and sketch out concepts at a moments notice.

Do you have a favorite wedding location?
Anything out of the box. I love outdoor, non conventional locations that provide you tons of inspiration as soon as you walk in the door (or out the door if the case maybe!) 

If you could work alongside any one wedding planner/designer who would it be?
Holy Moly! I am so inspired DAILY by so many planners/designers out there! Right now I am loving Jesi Haack, Bash, Please, and Jacin Fitzgerald of Lovely Little Details! 

Do you have any advice for brides looking for a wedding planner?
Choose someone you click with and that you TRUST. It's a long, important process and if there isn't a strong relationship between you and your planner you will be miserable. Also, do your research and know what you are looking for. Is design and the overall look of your wedding important to you or are you more worried about timelines, checklists, and logistics. Every planner has a strength and a specialty so make sure you know what you are looking for!

Amazing blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally
confused .. Any tips? Bless you!

Rüyada zararsız yılan görmek; biraz tehlikeli bir konudur.
Rüya sahibinin dikkatsiz davrandığına; daha doğrusu problemleri hafife alarak olması gerektiği kadar dikkatli davranmaması halinde başına ufak bir kaza
gelebileceği şeklinde tabir edilir. Bu aralar birine kefil olmayı düşünüyorsa, bu fikri yeniden düşünmesini nacizane tavsiye ederim.

the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but
I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show
the same outcome.
