BIANCA AND ADRIAN
Jess is everything you want in a wedding planner and more! She was kind and caring, especially with the stress of planning during Covid. She was patient with my indecisiveness and helped me understand and select the best options. She was creative and understood the look and feel I wanted to create while still working within my desired budget.
I am based in Durban and could not have imagined planning my wedding in Cape Town without her. We only met on the day of the wedding but communicated daily over WhatsApp or calls and built a wonderful relationship. Often people say a planner is not necessary and I couldn’t disagree more! I feel like a planner is the best money we could of spent on our special day and Jess was the perfect person. Her rate is extremely fair and reasonable for the effort put in, she also works with all the best suppliers in the industry so you can expect quality.
We had the most magical day and everything ran seamlessly, if there were any issues, I most certainly was not aware of it! Jess and her team were at the venue to set up as well as on the actual wedding day. She was there for both Adrian and myself for absolutely anything that we required, as far as getting our vows printed, emotionally supporting us on the big day and even making sure our glasses were never empty!
Jess was phenomenal and I would highly recommend Mon-Amour to any couple looking to get married!
Thanks again Jess you really were wonderful and made our experience amazing
Candice and Travis
It sounds cliché to say that our wedding day was the best day of our lives; but it really was! Laughter and love were the order of the day and it was in no short supply. We owe a lot of this to Jessica Thiart and the Mon Amour Events team. We are coming up close on our two-year wedding anniversary, and if anything didn’t go as planned on the day, it is still unbeknownst to us.
I came across Mon Amour Events purely by chance on Instagram. I had followed their page for some time before even becoming engaged. I was always amazed at the beautiful table settings, lighting and ambiance that I would see as their pictures appeared in my news feed. It made sense then that when I became engaged, I would choose the team that had already crept their way into my heart.
My husband and I met Jessica for the first time (in person) in Stellenbosch when viewing our wedding venue. Prior to that, we had been having skype conversations which allowed us to develop a relationship, given that we lived in different provinces. My first impression of Jessica far exceeded my expectations! Jessica is warm, loving, kind-hearted, attentive and very personable. But she clearly still gets the job done and effectively manages all service providers. I never had to worry about sending out copious emails to different providers, as all of that was managed by Jessica and her team.
It’s hard to believe that what was created on a mood board with a few pictures and my chosen colour scheme, came to life on my wedding day in a way that not even I had imagined. Throughout the entire day, Jessica was ever-present, attentive, assertive and always checking in on my husband and I to ensure that we were taken care of.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Jessica Thiart and the Mon Amour Events team to assist in making your dream-day a reality that far exceeds anything you could ever have imagined. Jessica shares in your excitement, empathizes with every emotion that you go through along the way, but most importantly, she becomes part of your entire experience, before and long after the wedding day. Words would never be enough to say thank you for creating a special memory that will live on within us forever!
MARGAUX AND STEPHAN
My husband and I were so grateful to have had our event in Jessica’s talented hands. I seriously couldn’t imagine anyone doing a better job.
She is one of those rare people who are extremely organized and detail-oriented, yet fun-loving and caring.
She thinks of everything that you would need on your special day!
She has impeccable taste and has such a classy, elegant and sophisticated way about her.
If you are looking for a wedding coordinator/events planner, look no further!
Mon Amour will guide you, advise you, listen to you, care for you and your event attendees, and make sure that everything is absolutely beautiful and that everyone is having a great time.
MIHKE AND DUANE
Planning a wedding during a pandemic is no joke.
We thank our lucky stars to have been able to embark on this journey with such an incredible wedding planner such as Jessica.
During uncertain times she kept us calm and ensured us we don’t have to worry about a thing she had it all under control.
We faced many curveballs along the way but she was always able to help us navigate around it with her incredible experience and knowledge of the industry.
Her attention to detail and execution is impeccable, and she truly made our vision come alive.
She is extremely hands on and made sure the day was one of the best days of our lives!
On the day Jessica and her team made sure everything ran smoothly and that no stones were left unturned, we did not have to worry about a thing and could just enjoy the day with friends and family.
We would highly recommend Mon Amour to anyone out there.
The day would definitely not have been as special and well-coordinated without Jess and and her team.
We are extremely grateful for Jessica and she is truly an expert in her field.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Candice and Michael
The best choice we made in the planning of our wedding… Jessica!
From day one of the journey, Jessica made the whole fear of planning a wedding insignificant. As soon as she came on board the immense task became a breeze for us. Her bubbly personality always helped to keep us happy and at ease, especially when a few hiccups came our way.
She was always willing to go the extra mile for any request, big or small. She is extremely organized and very well prepared. Her process and planning skills are something to behold. She was able to take some of our abstract ideas and turn it into beautiful work of art.
On the day of the wedding, it was easy for us to enjoy the day and not worry about anything, as Jessica was on hand whenever needed. She made all our dreams come true on the most beautiful day we could ask for.
We would gladly recommend Jessica to any couple who are planning to get married. She exceeded our expectations and we cannot thank her enough for the tremendous effort she put into our wedding.
Thank you Jessica, from the bottom of our hearts!
Marieke and Joubert
Jessica is your DREAM planner. We are grateful for our precious memories of our special day! From the arrangements to the actual event. We could NEVER do this without her !!
Jess thank you for your calm spirit, for cleaning my dress when I spilled food on it, for taking flat shoes when my feet were so sore, for helping my mother-in-law with a plaster, in making our room so beautiful after the wedding. … and just making our day perfect! It was more than we could dream of and we were very pleased and thankful for you. The compliments flowed right into our wedding!
We wish you all the best for your career and business!
You are professional and you always look so beautiful! Thanks again from myself and Joubert!
Siyanda and Sylvester
It was a shear pleasure working with Jess and her team. From the very first meeting right up to the end the Mon Armour team communicated effectively and well. We were made well aware of what we needed to do and when throughout. For example payments, rehearsals, tastings etc
Jess has excellent contacts that she’s built relationships with various suppliers which makes the sourcing of all your wedding requirements that much easier.
Always available when called – Jess facilitated cake tastings, a venue walk throughs and overall coordination right up to the day of the wedding. And on the day – she was first up and last to leave. Further Jess was very transparent with the numbers as this is what often gives couples anxiety, stating her fee and managing expectations vs budget.
If you are having a wedding in Cape Town, I would recommend Mon Amour Events. Thank you Jess and your team for being part of our journey. It was a remarkable day as attested to by friends and family. See you in 10 years for the vow renewals.
Jeané and Willie
Jess was an absolute angel to work with. From our first coffee date straight on to the wedding day and even afterwards. She always has the most friendly and welcoming smile on her face and communicates with such elegance and professionalism.
Her service in the lead up to our wedding was outstanding. With her calm and radiant personality, she made sure my husband and I were treated like royalty on our wedding day. From receiving me at my bridal car to making sure my veil looked perfect as I walked down the aisle. From serving us with a glass of champagne to celebrate after the ceremony, while always making sure we have something to eat/drink throughout the evening.
All of this she does, in addition to running the show!
Something I truly admire about Jess, as she makes everything look so effortlessly.
She thinks of EVERYTHING, which in return made me feel so at ease, knowing that Jess has everything under control because she really does! She makes everything come full-circle which in return delivers a smooth-running, perfectly coordinated wedding, ultimately everything I wanted for ours.
I was so happy with her service and really impressed by how she handles everything while having such a busy schedule and still being able to make you feel as if you are the only bride she is working with. She shares in your happiness from day one and is truly always available to assist with questions and advise, which she really has the best of, due to her extensive experience in the wedding coordinating industry.
I would definitely recommend her as she really is the best at what she does. There is a lot of event coordinators but only one Jess. And being her professional, radiant and elegant self is what ultimately makes Mon Amour Events such a successful business, which most definitely deserves all of the love coming their way!
Jess, it was such a pleasure and absolute honor working with you and having you be a part of our special day. Thank you for absolutely everything, we wish you everlasting happiness and success!
Sending blessing upon blessing to Mon Amour Events.
Jani and Pieter
Everybody warned me about the drama and pitfalls of organizing a wedding, but with Jess by our sides, everything went smoothly and we could enjoy our last few weeks together, before my daughter tied the knot.
Jess handled everything with a graceful smile and was always available to handle questions or communicate with the service providers. She knows the industry and you can trust the providers she hires to assist her. Thanks to Jess’s well groomed presence, we were able to enjoy the big day, without worrying about the logistics. All the quotes and expenses were well documented, thus there were no surprises.
Thank you for always doing more than was expected of you – we shall miss your bubbly “hellooo ladies” on the phone!
Jana and Gawie
Where do we begin! I first saw Jess whilst she was busy setting up for a wedding at our dream venue. I emailed Jess a few weeks later and she responded immediately and we arranged a Skype call. Later on, I realised that she was in Bali on honeymoon at the time! We had our Skype call the following week and I immediately knew that this journey was going to be amazing!
Jess, we cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us and more! Thank you for all the love, attention to detail and dedication that you have put into our wedding from the start. Your amazing ability to take our ideas and to create the most spectacular look and feel to our wedding day that we could only dream about! Thank you for turning our dreams into a reality. Throughout this journey, you have been kind, respectful and patient with us. On the days, I would feel overwhelmed with ideas; Jess would put everything in perspective and give her honest opinion.
When we did our floral, linen and lighting mock up, Jess always had extra props and options organised so that we can play around with colours and textures. Thank you for providing us with your advice and your incredible ideas, which were always better than we envisioned.
On the day, everything went so smoothly and perfectly. When people asked me the week before the wedding if I was stressed, I could say with ease, that I was stress-free. Jess had everything under control from organising deliveries, set-ups and returns. The décor was absolutely breath taking! During the reception, my husband and I could not stop looking at our beautifully decorated venue. Throughout the evening, Jess made sure that we were enjoying ourselves and ensured that the whole wedding flowed effortlessly. All of our guests could not stop talking at how gorgeous the venue looks and how well organised the whole day was. Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have met you and to have shared this wonderful journey with you. This whole journey with you was incredible d we cannot thank you enough!
Bianca and Xander
THANK YOU for everything you have done for us the past year and a bit. You have helped us immensely.
From communicating with suppliers to being extremely patient with us. We couldn’t have planned such an amazing wedding without you. What was the most amazing to us was the attention to detail before and during the wedding. We were so impressed. On the wedding day you kept us (especially me, the bride) so calm. You helped us. Anything we asked for you arranged. And for that we are so grateful.
We wouldn’t change a thing, from planning to end. Everything was perfect.I would definitely recommend you to any future brides.
All our love,
Xander & Bianca
Sarvesha and Jonathan
Prior to the wedding Jess impressed us with her deep industry experience and helpful suggestions. Jess always responded promptly and thoroughly whenever we had any questions. She was always there when needed her and her reliability never failed.
Jess was the perfect combination of supportive without taking up too much of our time on the wedding day itself. Furthermore on the wedding day she made us feel at ease and did a phenomenal job of taking care of the details on the day. She was always warm and bubbly when we interacted. All of our service providers noted how wonderful it was to work with her. Our wedding would not have run so smoothly without Her and her team!
Thank you so much Jess.
Lindy and kobus
Without even confirming her as our coordinator her willingness to assist and her simple Whatsapp stating “I don’t want you to stress about anything” pretty much sealed the deal for me, and thus started our beautiful wedding planning journey.
In my head, I expected chaos whilst thinking about getting all my ideas across and handing over communication with some of our service providers, this was absolutely NOT the case.
Her working process is so carefully thought through; she crosses every T and dots every I. She showcased her skills on our Big Day, and all our expectations were exceeded. I did not worry about a thing and when I needed her she was always close by with some bubbly for me :).Jessica, Kobus and I are so fortunate to have met you and have you share in the most beautiful beginning of “Our Forever”.
May you and Mon Amour Events be blessed in all your Jessica passionately lives her calling. Her attention to detail, creativity, and honesty is so refreshing. I would highly recommend this talented individual, who I also now have the privilege of calling my friend. endeavors.
Nadine And Clinton
Our wedding coordinator (aka our Fairy Godmother)
We were quite stressed about getting married in the Western Cape because we live in Joburg, but Jessica made the entire process so easy and enjoyable. She was born to make a bride’s dreams come true. I watched my fairy tale wedding come to life in her hands. She has incredible insight and is an absolute visionary. Jessica made the entire process stress free and especially our wedding day run smoothly. She is heaven sent and we count ourselves blessed to have had her and her team plan our wedding.We will be eternally grateful for her and her dream team’s arduous work. We got responses immediately and we were NEVER left in the dark. We never found it necessary to ask for replies. It was like you read my mind. Because we live far away, I was scared that you wouldn’t quite understand what ‘look’ or ‘feel’ we wanted for our wedding. I sent you a few images I wanted to work off of and we corresponded over Skype a few times, and by just that you made the day I was dreaming of as a little girl come to life. You even picked up on the little details I cherished in my heart.
From start to finish you have made this whole process so wonderful. I loved every moment of planning my wedding with you. You have amazing contacts and I was able to choose between service providers with you, which still allowed me to give a personal touch to everything. The day of the wedding was completely stress-free, all I had to do was take in the moments you made possible.
You have exceeded our expectations and made all our dreams come true. Saying that we are “happy” with your service would be a massive understatement. You were born to do what you do, and we are truly blessed to have had you coordinate our wedding day.
Marizanne and Pieter
Dear Mon Amour,
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you for guiding me, helping me and sharing in the joy of my wedding planning journey.
I am so incredibly thankful for your service, your kindness and your passion for what you do! Nothing was ever too much to ask and you certainly went the extra mile – we really appreciate it!
I would gladly recommend Jessica to anyone planning a wedding or event. From the get-go, she invested in our interests and really managed to transform my dream wedding into a reality, a very successful and beautiful wedding! A flawless day and evening that I will remember forever!
You are an incredible woman who believes in herself and through your hard work and passion for the business and the way you treat others, I look forward to following your very bright future!
Solané and David
Dear Mon Amour,
Thank you so so much for making our wedding day, the most special day of our lives, stress free!
We could enjoy every second, live in the moment and share it with family and friends without worring about a thing!
Jess definitely went the extra mile, even touching up my make-up and making sure that we are happy throughout the entire evening.
We will highly recommend Mon Amour to anyone. The day would not have been the same without their help and input throughout the process and on the day itself. Thank you, thank you, thank you Mon Amour, you did an amazing job!! Xxx
Melanie and Thys
Your personality is everything a bride wants. Bubbly chatty helpful and never complaining. You were quick on responses, and always always available doesn’t matter what time of the day or evening. You were in control, and that’s exactly what I was looking for.
Amazing, super friendly, never got irritated by the millions of pictures, or whats apps, emails, calls, meetings. You had everything under control. I could not have worried about a thing, before or during my wedding. Without you, we would not have experienced our wedding planning and wedding day the way we did.
We were so relaxed knowing you had it all under control, and IF there was a problem you would have sorted it out before we even knew there was a problem. 10/10 !!!
Frances and Jonathan
Thank you Jess for making sure that our most special day was absolutely perfect!!
Leading up to the wedding, your superb organizational skills, excellent communication and attention to detail meant that I never had to worry about timelines or things not happening when they should.
Thank you for always being calm and kind, and for going beyond what was expected and adding so many special touches (like making sure our glasses were never empty throughout the night, leaving water and dessert next to our beds, etc etc). I wish you and Mon Amour Events many many years of great success!!
Jonell and Wynand
We had such an amazing wedding. Everything came together perfectly.
We honestly did not have to worry about a thing. Your communication was excellent from start to finish. Everything was set up and ready hours before the wedding. We are so happy with the service we’ve received from you and would recommend you to anyone.
Elizma, a special thank you for everything you did leading up to and on our special day! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!
Katie and Andrew
There are not enough words to say thank you. The Mon Amour team were phenomenal – made my wedding day, the perfect day! Smooth, effortless and professional. Jess is an absolute delight to work with and truly made me feel like an absolute queen! She added her unique touches and paid extra attention to the fine detail! From the walk through to the perfect piece of wedding cake on our bedside tables – amazing! xxx
Amoret and Gerrit
We would highly recommend Jessica! She was fantastic and contributed to our perfect day. She was extremely professional, reliable and knew exactly what she was doing, which gave us peace of mind to enjoy our memorable wedding day.
We could see from the beginning that Jessica had everything under control and knew exactly what she was doing!Thank you for all the planning and organising, you are an amazing wedding planner and we will recommend you to everyone that we know.
CARIN AND BENJAMIN
Jessica was so calm and completely relate-able. We felt like she had everything completely under control and she just felt very capable. It reduced all of our anxiety and enabled us to be completely present during the big day.
A personal friend of ours, recommended that we ask Jessica to co-ordinate our wedding. They said Jessica was the best part of their son’s wedding, which she had planned meticulously, and he couldn’t speak highly enough of her.
And what a charming and capable lady she is. Our wedding day went so smoothly and without any stress, (in line with our hope, which was to keep things relaxed and stress-free) and we were able to thoroughly enjoy the day and stay present in each moment, without having to worry about the timing of everything.
She made sure that she had a list of our suppliers, whom she contacted prior to the event, and she ensured that everything was in place as we had envisioned it, and was in constant communication with us throughout the day. Her attention to detail was wonderful and she kept perfect timing with all the proceedings. Jessica and her assistant were elegant and professional – and calm! They went the extra mile to make sure that the bridesmaids had their flowers for their hair in time, even though they were staying at quite a distance from the venue.
Charming and delightful, we were so pleased to have them on board to co-ordinate the wedding day, and we would highly recommend Mon Amour Events.
