OUR ORIGINAL WEDDING PLANNER UNFORTUNATELY HAD TO BACK OUT JUST I WEEK BEFORE OUR BIG DAY. WE WERE DESPERATELY SEARCHING FOR SOMEONE TO HELP US ON A BUDGET AND SO LAST MINUTE AND WE ARE SO THANKFUL THAT CONNOR STEPPED UP! SHE WAS ABLE TO MEET WITH US BEFOREHAND AND ORGANIZE EVERYTHING FROM TIMELINE, VENDORS, DECORATIONS, AND DETAILS I HADN'T EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT! SHE ALSO CAME TO HELP US DURING OUR REHEARSAL DINNER TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING RAN SMOOTHLY. ON THE WEDDING DAY. CONNOR WAS EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL AND MADE SURE TO PRIORITIES MY WANTS FOR THE DAY OVER EVERYBODY ELSE! ONE OF MY PRIORITIES WAS THAT GUESTS DID NOT ENTER THE VENUE BEFORE A CERTAIN TIME, AND WHEN GUESTS STARTED SHOWING UP EARLY CONNOR RESPECTFULLY TOLD THEM TO WAIT OUTSIDE AS SHE KNEW THAT WAS IMPORTANT TO ME. SHE ALSO CONTINUALLY UPDATED ME THROUGHOUT THE GETTING READY PROCESS WITH HOW THE DECORATIONS WERE LOOKING, ASKED ME QUESTIONS ABOUT PREFERENCES, AND MADE SURE I ALSO HAD EVERYTHING I NEEDED! THE REST OF THE CEREMONY AND RECEPTION WENT INCREDIBLY SMOOTH AND SHE WAS QUICK TO HELP TEAR DOWN THE VENUE AND RETURN ALL THE DECORATIONS TO THEIR PROPER PLACE. SO THANKFUL FOR HER HELP AND WOULD ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE

Awarded Best of Zola
Having a day-of coordinator was a must of mine because I get overwhelmed easily. Jazmyn was amazing from the beginning. She has great communication, asks all the right questions ( questions we never even thought of) and offers great suggestions. I probably would’ve given up on the wedding if it wasn’t for her lol. We had our caterer drop out 2 weeks before the wedding and she had a new caterer booked with the same menu and same price range in less than an hour, and the food was great. On wedding day, she was organized and made sure everyone knew where to be at what time, and had everything set up perfectly after the room flip. I don’t think I can talk her up enough.

Divine Events by Rayna, LLC

5.0

Bennington, NE
  • Offers 7 services
  • Serves Ankeny, IA

I am a wife of 27 years and a mother of two beautiful daughters. I have been planning events and weddings for over 18 years. My passion for wedding and event planning started as a hobby before I decided to turn my “dream into a reality” and created Divine Events by Rayna, LLC! I love sharing milestone moments with the bride that has been dreaming about her fairy-tale wedding since she was a little girl or the company that values and rewards its employees, and the diligent student that is getting ready to walk across the much-anticipated stage. The one thing that I have learned in life, is that life is worth celebrating!

Deciding to work with Divine events by Rayna was the best decision I made for my wedding day. They offer multiple packages for full event coordination or same day. I felt prioritized, Questions never went unanswered, there was an open line of communication. I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the service I received and I plan on using them again for future events.

I love planning - like seriously, love it! I started seeing how friends and family were so stressed out about their weddings and wanted so badly to help. Who likes seeing the people they care about struggling and stressed out? After the first few times helping with their big days, I knew this was my passion. I truly enjoy giving people the ability to enjoy their day. I love spending time with my husband attending sporting events, playing softball, camping, and loving our fur children. I absolutely LOVE traveling, especially to DISNEY! Event planning makes me happy and I am passionate about bringing joy to your big day!

I have been coordinating events for 5+ years and fell in love with the methodical creation that comes from planning each different event. Each event is different and has it's own challenges which makes the entire process that much more exciting.

Audrei was so attentive to what we wanted our big day to look like. She was the coordinator the day of our wedding and I don’t know that I could have found anyone better to ensure my vision was kept and everything ran smoothly.

From beginning to end, our team approaches every moment with you in mind. We stand by the belief that no occasion is too big or too small to be handled the utmost level of care and professionalism. Memories and love last a lifetime.

Jacki and her team are simply fabulous! There is so much more to hair and makeup services than simply making you look and feel your best, though they will do that too! Just as important is Jacki's understanding of wedding days and special events, their timelines, working with other vendors as a team, and how best to be able to touch up your makeup throughout the day (esp those lips!) and making sure you look fresh! She takes care to listen to her clients' needs rather than choosing what style to use. Jacki is just one of the kindest, most lighthearted and fun wedding professionals out there. She would be a great addition to your wedding team and be an amazing way to start your day!

I had SSE & their Pine Wedding Management package but I wish I would’ve hired them for more. I am a professional photographer and worked with them as a vendor first and KNEW I had to have them on my side when I got married!! Their professionalism and organization is top tier. The SSE team was incredible with contact before and on my wedding, planning, organizing, setting up, and running the whole thing. They have helpful tips and recommendations on anything your wedding day may need and will help with it all. They made my brunch wedding day come true, kept everything on time while also being kind, professional, and FUN with all our guests and family! They were there from start to finish with smiles on their faces. I recommend this team to any bride & groom with full confidence every time!
