The baby shower for my first and only grandchild was understandably a very special and emotional event for me and my family and obviously we wanted perfection. Seven years earlier, Jihan François’ expertise and creativity had been an integral part of the successful planning and execution of my first daughter’s beach wedding, possibly the largest international destination wedding with a guest list of over one hundred. People travelled from all over the U.S.A and the world and everyone in attendance, regardless of age, had an unforgettable experience. I therefore unhesitatingly asked Jihan to help us to create another memorable occasion for the baby shower. As with the wedding, all parties involved were in different states, so coordination was a gain of great importance. Jihan’s strong organizational skills helped to keep us all invested in the process. After my daughter selected her color scheme, ideas for all the finer details (invitations, favors, menu, games, etc.) were shared and communicated electronically so that we could all be in the loop and have input. She introduced me, a true tech novice, to Pinterest and Google Chat. The latter was Jihan’s creative way of involving family and friends from other states who were unable to be in Atlanta on the day of the event. Being dessert crazy, one of my best memories of the shower was the beautiful dessert table. Another unforgettable experience was that I was travelling from St. Louis the day before the event. Due to severe weather, I was the last person to get on the last diverted flight from St. Louis before all flights were cancelled. This is important because I was carrying items for the shower. I got to the venue with about 15 minutes to spare. Jihan was is constant contact with me through my overnight stay in the Chicago airport since the connecting flight was cancelled, to my arrival in the parking lot of the venue. Her blow by blow involvement allowed her to make in time adjustments that allowed us to start and end the shower on time, without going over our contracted time for rental of the venue. Because of her flexibility and ability to stay a step ahead of the game, she also made changes in the day’s program to allow us to incorporate the items I had brought while maintaining a seamless flow to our event. I was super happy with the outcome of this hallmark event in our lives and so without any reservation, I recommend Jihan and Amani Affairs to help you create your own unforgettable family moments.Mar 5, 2017
Amani Affairs provided impeccable service for our wedding. They supported us from start to finish including: Engagement party planning, broad consultant services throughout the planning process, wedding vendor coordination and day-of coordination. The company founder, Jihan, was a true God send! She provided great tools to navigate through tough portions during our planning process e.g. vendor selection, floral designs, finalizing the day of schedule etc. and she shared her wealth of experience to help us prioritize what was truly important to us. Additionally, when things got hectic, everyone on the Amani Affairs team struck a perfect balance between listening as a neutral party and reminding us to focus us on the true purpose for the festivities...our union! On the day of, the Amani Affairs team made sure that everything operated on time and went off without a hitch! I'm positive that our wedding would not have been as memorable, stress free and utterly amazing without the professionalism, guidance and support of their team. I wholeheartedly recommend Jihan and the entire Amani Affairs team if you want your wedding activities to be executed so perfectly that you and your guests will talk about it for months!Dec 28, 2016
Amani Affairs provided superb support on my wedding day and kept the day running smoothly. There was potential for flubs in seating and a possibility of interruptions to the ceremony due to the size of our wedding and that everything was timed to an almanac's prediction of the sunset but Jihan made sure that it worked. There were a lot of balls to juggle: demanding guests, outdoor ceremony seating before the sun set, plus 'guarding the dress' during outdoor photographer work (again, working fast before the sun set). She rendered photog support all while simultaneously making sure that the outdoor strings and pre-reception appetizers were served accordingly. There were little fires that she put out that I (as the bride) didn't even know about until I returned from the honeymoon. Amani Affairs is on speed dial for my next event.Dec 22, 2016
