Meet Jenny Orsini of Jenny Orsini Events! She is our recent Instagram contest winner. Her gorgeous image got more likes than the rest of our awesome participants. We chatted with her for a glimpse into her world, read on to hear more about what inspires Jenny, and how BBJ brings her visions to life.
Jenny Orsini has been working in the special event industry for over 20 years, from wedding singer, corporate meeting planner, to business owner – she knows the industry from every angle.
Jenny’s work as been featured on BRAVO, Style Networks, ABC, TLC and almost every national wedding magazine out there! Jenny is seen regularly as an event design/style contributor on NBC’s The TODAY Show.
Jenny’s true passion is designing and planning special events, and the best part about every event are her clients.
About seven years ago Jenny started focusing heavily on design. Her first wedding using BBJ was a beautiful event, and the wedding was published.
The “Jenny Approach”
Jenny works with her customers sometimes more than a year before their big day, but the design discussions don’t ramp up until about six months from the event date. At three months out Jenny usually feels like she has a true grasp on her client’s vision – and at that point they have an all-encompassing design meeting. Picture mood boards, full tablescapes, and floral mock-ups. Even though Jenny has a knack for picking the cloths her clients love, she always throws in a couple extra options– 9 times out of 10 her client picks Jenny’s recommendation.
Things Jenny Loves
Jenny loves a challenge and doesn’t limit her clients to what they have in front of them. She seeks to show them new inspiration and possibilities. Jenny loves to offer her clients unique and stunning details. Chargers are the icing on top.
About this Wedding
The wedding featured was on August 12, 2016. The linen made all the difference for this event, making the bride’s vision come to life. The venue only offered plain linen – which to Jenny is like showing up to your wedding day and forgetting to get a pedicure. The bride wanted an understated elegant vibe, so Jenny suggested a neutral color palette of blush and taupe. The candles throughout the ballroom brought more romance and warmth. The lush texture on the sweetheart table added a touch of femininity.
Jenny believes that “creating an event is like building an outfit, the linen is the base, it sets the tone for the whole event.”
Thanks Jenny for the great partnership!
