Owner and Creative Entrepreneur

Hi! I'm Jill Smith, owner, creative, wife and mother. I have been in the Washington, D.C. metro area for 38 years as a financial professional (28 years), and after retiring early, began planning events, completed my certification in wedding planning, Floristry and Design. I love it!! Jill Smith Events and Designs has a team of professional individuals skilled in planning, florals, and designs. We produce events at a variety of venues in the DC/VA/MD area. We partner with couples in the area, and often areas beyond. Our goal is to ensure a seamless, memorable event that lasts a lifetime!

I bring a unique combination of business ethics and professionalism with wedding planning, floral and design experience, which allows me to approach events with creative and effective strategies. My dedication to listening to my clients sets me apart. I also strive to learn something new each day!

    Working with Jill was by far the best (and easiest) decision we made for our wedding. From our very first conversation, I knew Jill was my girl. Throughout the months of planning, Jill was nothing but professional, efficient, thorough, and easy to work with. She was always responsive and proactive, making the process stress-free. Our wedding was truly perfect and much of that is thanks to Jill. We cannot speak more highly of her and recommend her with no reservations, you will not regret it!

  • Jill is awesome!!

    I am a small, home based business creating calligraphy and scripting in the area and was introduced to Jill at a wedding show. She has been wonderful to work with! She responds to emails and phone calls quickly, is timely with her proposals/requests, and knows exactly the type of client to send my way. We have been able to collaborate on several projects. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a planner, florist and designer.
