“I knew before getting engaged that I wanted Hillary to plan my wedding. Hillary adapted to every twist that planning and re-planning a wedding in 2020 threw at us and managed to pull of the most perfect day I could ever have imagined. Her positivity and creativity never cease to amaze me. Not only is she a fantastic wedding and event planner but the most kind and thoughtful person as well!”

“We aren't quite sure how to put in to words how much of an impact Hillary had on our wedding planning experience….She genuinely cares about every one of her couples and executes each intricate detail that makes your wedding planning experience as it should be - exciting. If you are looking for a planner who gets to know you as a couple, invests in you having the wedding of your dreams, and knows when to say “I'll handle this, I'm sending you guys on a date night”…Hillary is your person. We can't thank her enough and hope all couples can have an experience like ours."

“Get yourself Hillary as your wedding planner. She is a designer, planner, connecter, family relations specialist and a sanity checker that will allow your fiancé to have her dream come true. You need someone with experience who will navigate vendors, contracts contingencies and most importantly, the emotional minefield that is a wedding. This should be the first thing you spend money on. It will be the first investment that will allow the most important thing to happen —your bride to take in every glorious moment because you have the right planner.”

I would like to thank you for putting together a beautiful wedding for Gina and Jake. I'm so happy that you were able to implement Gina's vision of her big day and execute with such creative and thoughtful ideas. I feel everything went smoothly - thanks to you and Emily. I appreciate your calmness, ideas (love the cart!), and having you be there to bounce off ideas/concerns from Gina. I appreciate you always responding quickly to me. Having a short list of vendors/suppliers
made it so much easier for Gina too. I wish you continued success - you deserve it!  


“Hillary is THE BEST!!! When we had to pivot to our "Plan B" wedding and have a micro wedding in Colorado I called Hillary in tears explaining how I couldn't imagine replanning a whole wedding three months out and doing this without her. She was quick to accept our invitation to Colorado and immediately started planning the entire thing, including finding every vendor (which was difficult in the resort town of Telluride) I didn’t lift a finger! Every single detail of our Plan B wedding was absolutely perfect and all the things I never knew I wanted! And that’s Hillary makes sure to get to know the client for exactly who and what they are, so she can make your wedding day reflect exactly what you want and need. It was an honor and a privilege to have Hillary as an essential part of our wedding day, and I wouldn't have had it any other way!”

“Have you ever heard about people that feel like sunshine?? That PERFECTLY describes Hillary. I am a fellow wedding vendor and all of my couples who have used her as their planner/coordinator have nothing but good things to say. She has an amazing eye for detail and has incredible taste. I wish she could plan all of my clients weddings”

"Hillary is Mighty Mouse in disguise. She was on top of her game throughout the entire process, full of ideas and recommendations, and stepped into several roles to ensure that everything went perfectly. Her goal was to create the most relaxed and beautiful day for the bride & groom, our families and guests - and she delivered that experience 100%! Thanks to Hillary and her staff, I enjoyed every minute of my daughter's wedding! Hillary has weddings and planning process down to a science. I would hire her to plan and manage any event of any size!”

- Katherine

"A review really cannot convey how wonderful Hillary was to work with. We hired her for full service wedding planning and she was amazing. She was so creative and works with the BEST vendors in St. Louis. Our daughter's wedding had to be moved from a country club to a tent at our home due to Covid. Suffice it to say, this was no easy undertaking and plans changed on a weekly if not daily basis. It was stressful, but the end result was truly spectacular and having it at our home was so special and meaningful! We could never have done it without Hillary and her crew. They all went above and beyond anything we could have imagined and we are so grateful!"

We hired Hillary J Events after absolutely glowing reviews and photos from the weddings Hillary and her team had done. We were impressed that HJE were able to curate, tailor, and create weddings that felt so personal to each couple, and we were absolutely thrilled with the process and outcome of our wedding with HJE. Every detail, accounted for. Every possible hiccup, prepared for. Every step of the process was smooth and HJE tailored their involvement based on our involvement along the way. We truly felt like the most important couple in the world to her and her team. We would 100% do it all over again with Hillary J Events.
