The Women Behind the Curtain
Josephine Jones, Owner & Head Designer of Eventi, explains why she became a dream maker.
As far back as she can remember, Josephine Jones has always held a desire to help others. Like many other experts in the event planning industry, Josephine uncovered her passion for event planning and decorating while planning a major event in her own life. Since coordinating her own wedding, Josephine has carried a torch for planning and decorating. Over the years Josephine has developed a breadth of knowledge and expertise in planning weddings and other special events.
After coordinating several events for friends and family members, Josephine made the decision to dedicate her life to event planning when she returned to school and completed certifications in floral design, wedding & event planning.
Josephine established Eventi, formerly Exquisite Primal Planners, approximately 10 years ago. When Josephine initially started her company, she specialized in floral arrangements and deliveries. Over the years Josephine has worked with some of the most well known and talented event vendors in the Capital Region. Ten years later, Eventi has grown from deliveries and floral arrangements to a full service event planning company. Combined with her extensive years of public service and event planning; Josephine has acquired a wealth of experience in program development, networking, budgeting, and event research. Josephine's formal education coupled with her invaluable real-life experience has made Eventi one of the top wedding and event planning companies in the Capital Region of New York.
Josephine has an extensive history of being a world traveler. She has traveled everywhere from Nigeria to Switzerland. These life experiences have helped Josephine to discover culture outside of the norm and has provided her with a strong sense of cultural diversity which she uses to better understand her clients. Eventi welcomes diversity and ensures that all of the certified staff of event planners shares this vision.
"I believe that your special day should be more than just an event, It should be magical. Not only should your event celebrate a fabulous moment, but it should also create a precious memory that will last a lifetime".
- Josephine Jones, Owner & Designer
Sheelah Aulet, From Bride to Wedding Planner
Prior to becoming a wedding planner I was a corporate event for a non-profit organization for approximately 7 years. Nearly 4 years ago I decided to add wedding planning to my resume after having experienced being a bride myself. All of the planning, preparation and stress that goes into planning a wedding can make any bride become a bridezilla! Despite all the obstacles that I faced during the planning process, I successfully planned my own wedding. Looking back, I realize the value of hiring an experienced event planner. Having someone to oversee the day-to-day planning process would have saved me money, time, and energy. I believe everyone should have the chance to enjoy that special day in their life and not have to worry about the little details. The experience I have in wedding, corporate event, and party planning, have equipped me with the skills to make any event a special occasion to remember.
Regardless of how big or small the event, I hope to ensure that your special event is stress free and memorable. From the moment we start working together, I will look out for your best interests, from negotiating fair prices with vendors to making sure every detail comes together with ease according to your vision.
"I want to make sure your day is everything you imagined and more. My goal is to help create an event that is uniquely yours"
