Jill offers nothing less than the best. She will make sure that no detail is left untouched and that everything is as perfect as can be. Her attention to detail is flawless and her ability to coordinate all aspects of a wedding is masterful. She planned 4-days of events for 200 guests for my destination wedding including a welcome cocktail party, golf tournament, rehearsal BBQ, wedding ceremony & reception, and farewell brunch and it all went off perfectly. She truly is awesome at what she does!

Jill was amazing. We live in Brooklyn so we were overwhelmed by the idea of planning a wedding in Steamboat. Jill eased our fears and understood what picky New Yorkers wanted. She kept us sane and made sure that we were always on top of what we needed to do. Our wedding was more beautiful than we could have imagined. Jill wasn’t just our planner she became a friend and support system. I cannot express in words how great Jill and her team are. She really understands how to take ideas and make them come to life. If you are getting married in the Steamboat area Jill is a must.

Jill was simply wonderful to work with in the logistics and creative planning of this wedding. She is very thorough in her details and time managemant, knowledgeable with local vendors and current product options, and is incredibly professional in her work. And her personality couldn’t be more engaging! We were so pleased with her services and we look forward to a future relationship with her. Many thanks for helping us to establish such beautiful memories and sentiments with this successful event!

We can’t thank Jill at The Main Event enough for making our wedding day beyond perfect! Jill is professional, friendly (I can’t help but feel like I walked away with a lifetime friend), organized, thoughtful, knowledgeable, detail oriented and so much more! When I first started planning I thought I’d be able to do most everything on my own. About half way through planning I realized I needed help and fortunately was introduced to Jill. Jill knows everyone in Steamboat and was able to recommend the best vendors, meet with owner of the venue and coordinator conference calls on my behalf since we live out of town. She just made everything effortless. She definitely has an eye for design and on the wedding day when I stepped out of the car and looked at the venue, I was blown away! Everything was spectacular, something out of a dream! Everyone at the wedding said it was the best wedding that they had ever been to and I have to agree! Our wedding certainly wouldn’t have been the same without her. Jill is quite incredible and we would highly recommend her! Thank you Jill from the from the bottom of our hearts! Sarah & Chris

We had an amazing wedding weekend thanks to Jill and The Main Event! Her knowledge and expertise is second to none and she made our destination wedding dreams come true! She was so easy to work with and is friendly, helpful, and organized (which I loved!) We did a lot of DIY’ing for our wedding and had a budget we worked hard to stay under. Jill did everything we asked to perfection! She had so many recommendations for ways to help us save some money, but also pointed out areas where it would be worth it to spend the little bit extra, and in the end it was everything we wanted! She called and emailed us regularly to keep us updated on the progress and things left to do which took a lot of stress out of the wedding planning process especially considering we were planning it from over 1500 miles away! When our wedding weekend finally arrived, she made sure that the only thing we had left to do was get our marriage license and relax. She truly made the weekend a peaceful and enjoyable experience, and not just for us, but for our guests. She helped us plan other events for them such as a welcome dinner for guests arriving on Thursday and a Sunday brunch. She did not miss one little detail! If you are planning a wedding or event and are thinking about working with Jill, do it! It will be the best decision you make in the entire planning process. Even though our wedding is over, we still keep in touch with Jill and consider her more like a friend than our wedding planner (which after reading a few of these other reviews is not uncommon!) Thank you Jill for everything!!

Jill Waldman with the Main Event did nothing short of making my dream wedding come true. My now husband and I hired Jill to help with day of planning and event design. Jill is very detail oriented and made sure that all of the lose ends were taken care of. She was able to take my ideas and create a masterpiece. If I could post a picture of my face when I first saw our reception decorations you would see the tears of joy in my eyes. I just didn’t think that someone could take all our our decorations and create such a cohesive beautiful space. I would recommend Jill time and time again.

Our wedding day was truly the best day of my life.  I am so thankful we had Jill and her staff to make sure that everything ran as smoothly as it did.  It was so wonderful to wake up on my wedding day and know that everything was under control and all I had to do was have fun and enjoy the day.  Thank you Jill and The Main Event staff for your help in making our wedding even more spectacular than we had anticipated!

We actually got comments from our guests as to how smoothly everything went and just how well organized we were, all thanks to Jill! She not only kept everyone on track and let all of our vendors know well in advance the timeline of the day, but she organized our (and all of our guests’) transportation as well. She is the ultimate cat-herder and we couldn’t have asked for anything more from The Main Event! Overall, Jill was easy to work with, thorough and professional and I would recommend her to any bride 🙂

When we started planning our Steamboat wedding all the way from California, we knew we’d need to find someone local who could help. The Main Event wasn’t the least expensive option, but after meeting with Jill we knew that we could really trust her to get the job done — and it was worth the extra $ to have that peace of mind. The things we most appreciated about working with Jill: she always over-delivered on the commitments she’d made to us in our contract, she was able to adjust her style/approach to our unique needs (and wedding style), and she made us feel like she was really excited to be working with us. She also knows the local vendor landscape well, which was really important for us since we could only be in town a couple of weekends for planning purposes and didn’t really have the ability to shop around. Oh, and maybe we should also mention: our wedding went off without a hitch (well, we think it did … if there was a hitch, she hid it/fixed it and we certainly didn’t notice … which was exactly what we wanted). We recommend the Main Event highly, especially for folks like us who are coming from out of town and have “big city” expectations for the kind of service they’ll get from a planner.

Jill was absolutely fantastic to work with. I received the recommendation for her from a venue in town when they mentioned offhand that “she threw the best wedding we’ve ever had here.” Having already spoken to another wedding planner in town, I decided to have a phone conversation with Jill to get a feel for her. I decided almost immediately to work with her versus my other option because she was far more creative and personal. She of course kept everything organized, but I appreciated the fact that she saw the wedding as a reflection of the couple and not just as a standard event she needed to plan. If you want someone to not only help keep the day organized and running, but also add creative and personal touches, Jill is the one!
