    I hired Jordan after I realized planning a wedding alone while pregnant was a terrible idea! She was amazing and left no stone unturned, my wedding day was literally perfect and went off without a hitch!! If you’re looking for a wedding planner for your wedding whether it be a regular one or a glacier elopement Jordan is your gal!!

    AKhappenings has the innate experience and good taste to make any dream elopement or wedding go off not just to plan, but dream plan. Jordan and her team are experienced and do a beautiful job.

    Jordan goes above and beyond at everything she does. After watching her first hand at multiple weddings, I would put my trust in her 1000%. Any problems that arose she made disappear in minutes. I can’t wait for her to plan my wedding someday!!!

  • Can't recommend working with AKhappenings enough!

    I was about 90 days out from my wedding day and everything was very unorganized and was blending together like I pictured. I called Jordan and she made the planning process so easy! She called my vendors, organized a timeline, confirmed orders, and overall just covered so many things I never would have thought of. I am so freakin glad we decided to get a wedding planner and so happy it was Jordan!
