Jazmyn did an AMAZING job. I met with her twice before the wedding to go over any details and my timeline. Jazmyn was always a text or email away to answer any questions I had. She also contacted all my vendors to ensure they were ready to go! She ran the rehearsal, so everyone knew exactly what their part was. She went above & beyond to ensure our day went smoothly. She is incredible! I would highly recommend!

Divine Events by Rayna, LLC

5.0

Bennington, NE
  • Offers 7 services
  • Serves West Des Moines, 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.

Absolutely amazing team! Everyone we met with was super helpful and they really made our day go as smoothly as possible.

Awarded Best of Zola
If you’re debating hiring a coordinator, just do it and make sure its Sydney. Where to start! Sydney was (and is) absolutely incredible. I cannot imagine what our day would have been without her. Leading up to our wedding day, we met with Sydney to review the details of the day, what we were envisioning for the look and feel of our day, she helped develop our timeline (her timeline tool is AMAZING), and she brought up questions/thoughts on things that we hadn’t thought of or things that she suggests we do to help the day run better and the experience be more enjoyable for guests. The number of guest/family members, or even outside vendors at our wedding that took notice of all she did to make the day perfect, was mind boggling. Not only did she attend our rehearsal the day prior, she completely stepped up and helped our church with coordinating the rehearsal as well. This greatly improved the smoothness of the ceremony for not only the Bride and Groom, but for the church and the entire wedding party! Multiple vendors made it a point to compliment Sydney to me. With Sydney in charge there was no doubt in my mind that everything would go how it was supposed to, and that it did! We had the best wedding day we could have imagined. The reception space was setup perfectly, she took care of all the communication with the staff at our venue and outside vendors, and she did this all with a small on her face and in a calm manner. If she was stressed or worried about something, I never would’ve known. Everything was setup perfectly, she took special care for not only the bride and groom, but the entire wedding party and families. The day went just as we dreamed, all thanks to Sydney. Sydney is the absolute best. I would hire her over and over again. The BEST decision we made was to hire Sydney – I will forever be thankful for all that Sydney did for us leading up to our wedding and the day of.

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!
