Director of Special Events and Lead Wedding Planner
Jen has always approached us with a straight-forward & sensible attitude. She understands the needs of our wedding and will challenge us when appropriate to find better solutions than we would get without her. For a wedding planner who knows the right people and how to execute a wedding, pick Jen.
"Although Emily and James will share their stories with you, I can give you some backstory as to how we came to hire Jennifer. Emily and James live in Philadelphia and Emily’s dad, John, and I live in Raleigh, NC. When they became engaged, I brought up the idea of hiring a wedding planner. James was in a new job, Emily in school, and I was 350 miles away in North Carolina. I wasn’t feeling good about how planning a wedding might go. Emily and James resisted because they didn’t understand what a planner could do that “we” couldn’t do ourselves. I proposed that I would find planners, interview them, and have Emily and James talk to the “finalists”. The grudgingly agreed.
I spoke with several planners and no one came close to Jennifer. She was honest, polite and professional. We talked about the real cost of a wedding and how things would proceed if we hired her. Jennifer agreed to meet with the couple.
Jennifer stood head and shoulders above the others I interviewed. One I never spoke to as he did everything via e-mail or text. Another complained about our venue and how they did things. Still, the decision was with Emily and James.
I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Things have gone extremely well and I am excited for the wedding. We really love Jennifer! Just last week my husband asked me if after the wedding we could “keep her around to just plan stuff.” Frankly, we will miss her."

"1. What made her stand out between other planners? From my first conversation with Jennifer I knew that I could trust her to help make my vision become a reality. I spoke with 2 other potential planners but Jennifer stood out above the rest. Her confidence and energy instilled confidence in me which was exactly what I needed to help plan my wedding. I value having her by my side in the planning process. She acts as an advocate for me which is such a calming thing to have during the stressful wedding planning process!
2. Why would you recommend her to friends/family? Considering I already have recommended her to friends who are recently engaged speaks volumes to the caliber of work that Jennifer has done. We are still 4 months from our wedding date and most of the help she will provide us with is yet to come but I knew from early on that this process is smooth because of Jennifer. I feel like any questions I have she is there to answer. She is always willing to give her opinion if you want it and I know I can trust all of the advice that she gives me along the way. "
"I cannot express enough how impressed and satisfied we were with Jenn Supper and Kaleidoscope Weddings!! Planning a wedding in the Philadelphia area and living two hours from the venue was no problem thanks to Jenn. She worked with us from the early stages in the planning process and closed all of the last details even after the reception. She listened to our concerns and assured that NOTHING was missed!! She was always available to answer any questions or concerns and made sure that our requests were honored.
Our process began with choice of venue, invitations, the rehearsal dinner, the morning preparations, and transportation to and from the wedding reception and so much more! Her choice of vendors was perfect and her business experience was apparent.
I appreciate her professionalism and enthusiasm to ensure that the day was perfect. Her attention to detail is impeccable. She made sure that the parents enjoyed the wedding also, we had no worries In summary.... hiring Jenn and her team was the best and most important decision in the entire wedding process!"

"I am not even sure how to write a review that does Jenn justice. Her approach is scrappy, efficient and amazingly organized. But on the day of the wedding is really when she shines. My husband and I couldn't have imagined not having here there, she handled every detail. I mean every detail. If I even looked over my shoulder she came to my side asking what I needed and often she took the initiative to do what I needed, before I even knew I needed it! The cost is so well worth the service and level of detail you receive with Jenn. My perfect wedding day was truly perfect because of her. You are nuts not to hire Jenn if you are getting married!"
"Thanks to Jenn at Kaleidoscope Weddings, my husband and I had the wedding of our dreams! When we had gotten engaged way back in June 2017, we had reached out to Kaleidoscope Weddings to consider hiring a wedding planner. After the first phone call, we instantly clicked. She understood my vision, and I knew we had to hire her. She is INCREDIBLE at what she does. She handles everything from setting up venue tours and vendor appointments, to making save-the-dates and invitations, and she knew all the important questions to ask. I texted/e-mailed her at least once a week (definitely more frequently in the weeks leading up to the wedding) and she ALWAYS responded with concise and honest answers/opinions, which I appreciated so much. She eased my anxiety and made wedding planning a fun experience! Most importantly, she kept us on budget!
I thought Jenn was amazing during the wedding planning process, but on the actual wedding day, she went ABOVE AND BEYOND, which I didn't even think was possible after everything she had already done! She created a schedule for the entire wedding party, which made the morning wedding prep run SO smoothly! She coordinated the family portraits in the church and at the reception with ease, and she and her assistant always made sure my husband and I, as well as our parents, had a drink in hand and were having the best time! Honestly, we were able to ENJOY our wedding day rather than worrying if everything was running smoothly, which my husband and I are SO grateful for. Even after the wedding, she brought all my belongings (family pictures, cake cutting utensils, toasting flutes, etc.) back to my hotel room. She even put the top layer of the cake in the fridge for us!
Jenn was absolutely amazing and I cannot recommend her enough. If you're considering hiring a wedding planner, my honest opinion is to hire the team at Kaleidoscope Weddings. It was truly the best decision we made. I am so happy and grateful I met Jenn through this process and that my husband and I can call her a great friend!"
"I wanted a Wedding Planner that could take ALL stress from the wedding planning process, so my daughter and I could have fun during the planning process and enjoy the wedding day with no worries. We found the perfect planner in Jennifer Supper from Kaleidoscope Weddings! Jennifer stepped us through the stages of planning, kept us on budget, and showed us the best vendors. She gave great advice throughout the process so there were no missteps along the way.
On the wedding day, Jennifer took care of everything so all we had to do was immerse ourselves in the experience. If I had a second daughter, Jennifer and Kaleidoscope would have repeat business!"
"Jennifer Supper was the best thing that I could have ever asked to happen for our wedding! I wish there could be a higher rating that five stars, because Jenn and her team deserves so many more. I was pretty organized with everything leading up to my wedding, but I hit a point where I just did not want to talk about every little detail and answer the last minute questions. Jenn stepped in and took over all communication two weeks before the wedding day and made sure they were all prepared for the expectations of the day, including a detailed timeline letting everyone know where they should be and when. Still to this day my friends tell me that Jenn helped to make the day run so smoothly, everyone knew where they were supposed to be and we were all able to just enjoy ourselves and fully take in the day. The groomsmen even said it was the first wedding they ever showed up on time for and they liked having a Kaleidoscope team member there to help them with pictures and transportation. My wedding was held at a restaurant that we bought out, so there were things that Jenn had to take care of that she would normally never of had to at a “normal” wedding venue – she went above and beyond in every way possible. As a bride, I truly wanted to enjoy my day and Jenn allowed that to happen, the only thing I had to worry about was smiling (which obviously was not hard since I was marrying the love of my life), making it down the aisle with my mom, and delivering my vows without too many tears! Long story short, I 100% recommend this team for your wedding day, do not hesitate for another minute, give Kaleidoscope a call, and hire them to help you with the most special day of your life!"
"Working with Jen and Kaleidoscope Weddings was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We cannot recommend them highly enough. We worked with Jen for day-of coordination, but it was so, so much more than that. Jen's expertise, connections, and calming presence were invaluable as we made the finishing touches for the big day. She took over all vendor communications a month beforehand and made the entire weekend run seamlessly, from managing the master timeline to getting folks organized for pictures to turning bouquets into decorations and so much more. We have no idea how she did it all. Everyone and everything was where they needed to be when they needed to be there. She didn't let a single worry interrupt the joy of the day and for that we are eternally grateful to Jen and her team."
"I could not have imagined using anyone else as my wedding planner for my wedding weekend. We only had Jennifer for the weekend of but she helped us for months prior to our weekend. She is so warm, funny, and easy to get along with. She was always real with us and I always trusted her opinion - there were so many vendors who wanted us to spend more money, etc. But, Jen never did that - she always tried to figure out how she can help us or what she could do to get a better deal. When the weekend came, she was invaluable! She made the cutest welcome bags for all of our guests and went out of her way to get me what I requested to put in there. She also brought with her so many other things that saved us money versus going through someone else , she did the bathroom baskets, brought the flip flops, invitation holder, etc. Throughout the entire weekend, I was so comfortable in that I did not have to worry about one thing. Jen was beyond AMAZING. She literally handled every little detail that I could have possibly imagined - I got to enjoy my weekend without 1 thing to worry about. We also had 1 issue with guests bringing more people than planned and Jen just said "I'll take care of it" and handled it easily. She also took care of me better than I could have asked for - she brought me drinks because she knew I would never be able to make it to the bar without people coming up to talk to me. She made sure that I ate at the reception, which I probably wouldn't have if she didn't make me (I am so grateful to her for that!). I truly don't believe my weekend would have been as amazing as it was without Jen as my wedding planner. I had numerous guests come up to me after saying how great she was. It is such an important thing to have a wedding planner that you trust and who knows the business... I think anyone would be crazy not to use Jen and Kaleidoscope!"
"When I first got engaged, I was pretty resistant to the idea of a full service wedding planner. A month after my wedding, I can safely say hiring Jen Supper as the full time planner was the BEST decision my mom and I made throughout the entire process. This review won't do it justice but let me just say HIRE HER! Jen is incredibly organized and never left ONE DETAIL to chance. She has relationships with a lot of vendors, which makes it even more seamless. The day of she made sure the day went as smoothly as possible - everyone at the wedding kept remarking how efficient she was. The best part is she is GREAT to work with! She is funny and great at simultaneously navigating the stress that is the wedding process. Cannot say enough nice things about her and Kaleidoscope!"
"We used Jen for her day-of service that was really 3 months before our wedding and we can say without reservation it was one of the best decisions we made throughout the whole wedding process. As we reflect now several months after our wedding (and comparing our experience to other weddings) we cannot thank our lucky stars enough that we made the decision to work with Jen and Kaleidoscope.
As soon as we talked to Jen on the phone we instantly felt a connection – she has an amazing personality where you know she’s organized and experienced while still being open, honest and approachable. We never felt uncomfortable about contacting her about any of our questions at any time.
Just as the stress of the event getting closer was arriving and the last minute details were approaching was when we had the most support. Jen helped us organize everything from bathroom baskets to welcome bags and drink signage. She was the go-between for all of our vendors and communicated a master timeline to everyone that was detailed and clear. On the day of Jen was with me (the bride) all day – from changing my shoes to giving me lipstick, I didn’t have to worry about a thing.
She went above and beyond for us and it did not go unnoticed – she amazingly fit all of our cases of wine in her car and somehow (we still don’t know how) moved all of our things after the wedding to where they needed to be in multiple hotels and cars for us so that we didn’t lose anything.
We were a couple that were really hands-on and detail oriented so we were skeptical about needing a planner at all. However, we could not have been more wrong – having Jen on our team for our wedding was exactly what we needed to feel stress-free the months leading up to our wedding and to enjoy the whirlwind weekend that it was. She was a dream to work with and we don’t know how we would have done it without her – we give Jen our highest recommendation!"

"We interviewed 4-5 different wedding planners and Jennifer Supper immediately stood out among everyone else. She was prompt, extremely responsive, very focused, and really took the time to understand exactly what kind of couple we were and how much we wanted to be involved in the planning.
I honestly cannot say enough about how amazing she is. Without her, our wedding definitely would not have happened and she also made it such an easy and stress-free process for my partner and I. All our friends were also overflowing with compliments for her during the planning process and the wedding itself. We were both extremely busy during the months leading up to the wedding and basically off-loaded every single logistical task onto her and she did them all flawlessly and with a peppy attitude. An example interaction would be us texting her 1 month before the wedding being like "oh, did you ever book that string quartet we briefly mentioned in a meeting 6 months ago," and her response would be "of course, it's completely taken care of."
Besides being an amazing wedding planner, Jen was also an incredible day of coordinator. We both honestly felt like guests during our own wedding. Every little detail was thought of and taken care of and we never once had to interact with vendors leading up to the wedding and during the day except to make big decisions like menu choices or final plating design. Jen had everyone on schedule and where we were supposed to be without feeling overbearing or intrusive.
In terms of price point, yes, hiring such an all-inclusive planning package is a little pricey, but the pricing at Kaleidoscope and Jennifer Supper was actually extremely reasonable for the level of service provided across all the vendors we looked at. I honestly thought it was a huge steal and was worth every single penny.
Again, cannot recommend Jennifer Supper enough. We love you Jen! If we could hire her to plan the rest of our lives, we would."
