Before her training as a Professional Wedding Consultant, Jean spent 11 years, as a floral design associate, setting up weddings, at exclusive venues, throughout the Bay Area; prior to that, she had been the Administrator, and Development Director, for a Bay Area non-profit. Her expertise in organization and management, paired with her practiced eye for wedding design and layout, uniquely qualify her for the profession she has embraced.
Her creativity, warmth, and calm professionalism have earned her Certification by Here Comes the Guide, membership in By Recommendation Only, and the designation as Professional Wedding Consultant, by the Association of Professional and Certified Wedding Consultants, with whom she trained.
Several well-known venues, including Fogarty Winery, Nestldown, Ritz Carlton, Half Moon Bay, Ralston Hall, and the San Francisco Omni Hotel, have placed Jean on their preferred vendor list.
"I absolutely loved working with Jean Marks as my wedding coordinator! She is extremely organized, and has impeccable taste, sense of style, and understanding of wedding etiquette; Jean knows when to listen, and when to advise; she took our dreams, and worked with a great set of vendors, to make them real; Jean also anticipated any potential problems, and was proactive to be sure we avoided them. Any couple planning a wedding could not do better than to hire Jean as their coordinator…she will be their friend, their advocate, and their experienced guide, through the sometimes daunting wedding planning process."
