WELL HELLO THERE!
Hi there!! I’m Jennifer - owner and principal planner of May June Events!
After graduating from JMU (GO DUKES!!) with a degree in international business and spending several years as a corporate event planner, I had the amazing opportunity to start my own shop back in 2012. I've been so fortunate to work with so many incredible people along the way, and still can't believe I get to wake up and do this every day!!
Behind the scenes I'm pretty simple and easy going. I'm a mom to two little girls, so when I'm not knee deep in timelines and design boards I'm elbow deep in rainbow colored laundry, glitter, and slime. Or at Target. Because Target is life.
I love coffee, quiet early mornings, the MCU, carbs, elastic waistbands, sarcasm, and things that make me laugh so hard my stomach hurts. Yes, my hair is naturally curly and yes, people tell me I look like Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing all. the. time. Now if only I could do the lift...
Thank you so much for stopping by to learn a little about me! I am SO happy you're here and can't wait to learn more about you!!
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
It's me, my hubs, our two girls, and our small but mighty Miniature Pinschers, Frankie and Dino. Our house is loud and usually covered in slime and glitter (or glitter slime), and we're definitely not short on sass. They fill my life with tons of laughter, plenty of laundry, and lots and lots of love.
First thing in the morning, six days a week you'll find me sweating my face off. Sure it's good for my health, but mainly it's just so I can have an hour of quiet time before the kiddies wake up ;-)
I don't work out all week for nothing. When Saturday rolls around and I'm not on-site for weddings, my hubs rolls out the homemade pizza, I break out a bottle of wine, and we have family movie night. I come for the quality time, but I stay for the pizza.
I'll take any opportunity I can get to have a good meal and great conversation with wonderful friends. It's equally as good for the stomach as it is for the soul.
Who doesn't love getting away from it all for a bit? Take me anywhere that has sunny skies, palm trees, and an obnoxiously huge pool and I'm set.
Oh Netflix, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways... Between the originals, movies, documentaries, comedy shows, and the 86 seasons of My Little Pony that are constantly on repeat, there's not much more I need in life.
