Jessica is the best party planner I have ever hired. She really pays attention to the idea and feelings that you want your event to project. She thinks outside of the box and comes up with unique caterers and completely fabulous venues. For example , at our Halloween party , we had a wall of donuts for dessert!!! (before it became popular). Jessica cares about your guests' guests' experience as much as the host does. I think she was every bit as excited as I was for the party. My friends are still talking about the party, almost four months later and I can honestly say that it was not just the best party I have ever thrown, I also felt like I got to be a guest at my own event.

My husband and I had decided on a 'day of' wedding planner. We researched and asked around, and we ended up with a multitude of options. We requested for quotes and had phone interviews with the planners that were available for our day, but they were just not what we were looking for. When Jessica, who was originally the events Manager e for the venue we booked let us know she was moving on to a different job we had a light bulb idea. She had been so great to work with as we were booking the venue. She was organized, responsive, and personable. So we approached her with the idea of being our 'day of' planner. I am BEYOND happy with our decision. She helped guide us through any pre-wedding dates and information to ensure our wedding day would go smoothly. When the day came, she took full control, and we were able to truly enjoy our day without any stress! As a planning professional, I can truly vouch how great Jessica is as a planner and would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Conscious Capitalism Los Angeles hosted its first annual Purpose X Profit Conference at Wanderlust Hollywood with several hundred people in attendance, featuring speakers, panelists and a marketplace. Everyone from the team of professionals in its leadership team to our event producer to the day-of staff at Wanderlust helped to make it a huge success! We found the Wanderlust team and staff extremely friendly and accommodating. It is a uniquely stunning venue with plenty of flexible space yet an intimate, warm feel. There is a lovely outdoor patio area where lunch was served and our attendees could get some fresh air during breaks. One of the themes of our event was how business can create optimal experiences for their customers and Wanderlust served as an impeccable example of how that can be done!
