Introduction: Full service Event Planning & Hospitality company located in Southern California. Servicing Los Angeles, San Diego, Palm Springs, Orange County & in between! We handle: All things weddings Event planning Event coordination Event Catering Staffing Bartending Chef services Event decorating Entertainment Sound & DJ booking Photography & Videography booking Stage production & management Luxury & high profile parties & much more About our producer Jackie: I believe in the power of connection and coming together with those you love in celebration. I have over 15 years experience working in the event & hospitality industry, with a strength in culinary and libation. I grew up working under various chefs and learning about culture through food and travel. My experience goes beyond the food and beverage aspect as I have worked as a live event producer and wedding coordinator for the last 10 years building relationships with amazing clients all over. In 2019, I opened my first business: Elevated Grazing & Events. Elevated Grazing & Events started out as a small charcuterie business that catered to small social gatherings. and now nearly 3 years later is a full service event production business, with a focus in weddings and small scale catering. Following the increase in business and need for live event producers & planners, I decided to move my direction primarily toward event planning & because of the love and feedback from the clients I have worked with over the years - I then became: The Social Event Planner. My goal is to provide great service with detail and speed while providing you with the space and freedom to sit back and enjoy your day, whether from a venue or your home. I work all throughout Southern California and I'm always open for travel and destination events.

Let me start off by saying Jackie is the best wedding coordinator on Thumbtack!! My wedding coordinator canceled on me just 3 months before my wedding and luckily Jackie had room in her busy schedule to help me with month of wedding coordination. From day one Jackie was prepared and knew exactly how to help my wedding run smoothly. Jackie was very professional and cheerful in all of our meetings and I love her uplifting attitude. She helped run the wedding rehearsal in addition to the day of coordination and it all went very well! She did a great job coordinating with the vendors and getting everything done on time during the wedding. We highly recommend Jackie if you want less stress on your wedding day for a smooth and professional wedding experience!

Details: Wedding • 51 - 100 guests • Partial planning (help in select areas) • Cleanup • Day-of coordination • Setup • 1 - 2 months • My home, venue, etc.

Simply AMAZING! Jackie with Elevated Event Production helped to make our Christmas trip memorable. She cooked several meals for us which were divine. Great quality, fresh, tasty. Hard to stop eating what she prepared. Wanted to savor every bite. Beyond the food, she was great company. Very engaging, fun, helpful. We were visiting the San Diego area and she recommended key experiences that accented our trip! I highly recommend Elevated. If you want to ensure success and a good time, give them a buzz. You're in good hands with Elevated!
