I really do love the industry I work in. I get to feed my need for all things creative and I get to work with some of the most talented, creative people out there. Not only do I get to learn from these amazing individuals, I get to enjoy their visual creations.
Let me introduce you to my friend Jove. He is the owner and creative director of Jove Meyer Events. He will plan and design your event from start to finish. Jove is creative, friendly and really pays attention to every little detail. His designs are whimsical, thoughtful and fun. I know a lot of planners/designers in this industry so I wanted to know what makes him different from all of the rest…
1. What is your approach to planning an event? My first step is to get to know the client as intimately as possible, ideally over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. I want to know their intent, their vision and goals for the event. I strive to create authentic experiences by incorporating as much of the clients personal favorites as possible with a touch of my own flair. I approach the planning of an event by making sure I plan details for all five senses (touch, taste, smell, sight and sound) of the event. By touching all five senses the event becomes an experience not to be forgotten!
2. What is your favorite part of the planning process? I love the design aspect of planning an event. Taking in all of the elements and creating a look and feel for the space, transforming things to create memorable moments! I love planning unexpected moments and details! I love the joy on the clients face when they see our vision come to life!
3. Any fun trends that you are embracing this season? This season I am all about color blocking flowers, using single flower types and using unique vessels for vases. I love using vases of various shapes, sizes and textures and filling them with only one type of flower, a single stem when possible! Then I place the various single flower arrangements together to create a visually beautiful look! Its simple, chic and elegant!
Jove in his own words…
I have been planning events since I was a kid. Starting with family holiday parties and birthdays I would decorate the house with whatever I could find or make! My first job in high school was in an event company where I learned all about balloons and flowers. We designed and planned events of all shapes and sizes for Disney, Walmart, Dave and Busters and many others.
I officially started my own company after planning my best friends wedding in 2007. She called me one day and said she could not think of anyone better to do it, I was honored and fond myself loving every moment of the process and knew this was what I wanted to do with my life!
My company was born out of a passion for event and wedding planning! We are a boutique event planning company based out of New York City and we provide full service planning, partial planning as well as month of / day of wedding coordination.
