Meet Jennifer


The owner and lead visionary at
The Finer Things Event Planning.
Chasing dreams in high heels of course!

Since 2009 I have planned and executed over 200 events and I am so incredibly blessed to have had my work featured on both the local and national levels. I am obsessed with details, lover of all things pink and sparkly, and champagne is my spirit animal. When I am not planning events, I spend every minute with my better half, my amazing husband and our beautiful kids.

I spent 8 years working in the corporate world of finance and banking before opening my business and hold a Business Degree from Indiana University. I also serve on the board for a Central Ohio Charity, Christine’s Christmas benefiting the Make a Wish Foundation. A few years back, I had the opportunity to serve as an official Wish Granter with the national non-profit organization, Wish Upon a Wedding. I am proud to be an active member with the national Association of Bridal Consultants and where I have earned Professional Wedding Planner ™ credentials with distinguished honors in the Professional Development Program.

Meet Sophie


Event Planner and Day of Coordinator

I grew up near Cleveland, Ohio and moved to Columbus to attend Capital University. After graduating from Capital University with a Major in Public Relations and two Business Minors, I dove right into the world of special events. While working as an Event Coordinator at two top Columbus event venues, I had the privilege of coordinating weddings and special events of all sizes. I love all things logistics! Knowing what is going to happen minute by minute and how all of the aspects of the design are going to come together is my true passion! Each couples’ vision is so different and seeing it all come together on the big day is the best feeling!
