"Jubilee cares deeply for her clients. There is nothing she won't do to make the
day smooth for bride and groom. The bottom line is she is simply one of the best
I have ever seen, " was the recommendation from an event professional friend.
I met her in her attractive, organized office. Glass shelves on the walls
exhibit the neatest favors, which she brings back from her frequent trips to
Japan. The laptop on her desk holds all information of her clients. She is the
first one I know whose clients have access to all their wedding related files
including contracts, budget sheets, timelines, etc., online at all times. "Their files are always updated,"
she explained to me proudly. Another gadget she finds handy is the watch-like
walky-talky, so she can communicate with the assistant who works with her at
Over tea Jubilee told me about her communication degree from Berkeley and her
job as Logistics Manager for Mervyn's
California. When the management asked her to organize fashion shows and
subsequently research the wedding industry, Jubilee left the company and
followed her calling. Before she started out on her own, she took courses
in wedding planning and coordination and helped coordinate weddings for
colleagues and friends.
Reminisce has been in business since 2000. During the initial
consultation, which takes about three hours, Jubilee creates a preliminary
budget, points of etiquette, and recommends vendors according to the couple's
budget. She also composes a week by week calendar in which the can keep track of
all meetings, payment dates, and deadlines. She takes full advantage of her bilingual background and loves nothing
more than to weave different cultures into one beautiful celebration. For
one groom she translated the wedding vows into Chinese so he could recite them
to his bride at the ceremony.
Fellow vendors are considered to be part of the team; by working closely
together they can create a flawless wedding.
