Owner & Event Specialist
Owner and event specialist, Jessica Adler, has been in the hospitality and event industry since 1992. Before establishing JA Special Events in 2003, Jessica enjoyed time at the Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver, the Renaissance Suites in Broomfield, and UMC Catering on the University of Colorado campus in Boulder. Born in Arizona and raised in Telluride, Jessica has lived in the Boulder-Denver area since 1993. JA Special Events has an outstanding support staff, numerous references, and connections with many of the area’s most reliable and talented wedding and event service providers. We specialize in weddings and mitzvahs and have had the honor of working with couples and families and couples from around the United States as well as international clients.
My Philosophy: Being part of the planning and celebration of a wedding or mitzvah is a special privilege and honor. I love to assist my clients in designing and creating their special moment. Rather than dictate how weddings should be, I like to get to know every bride and groom, every client, as individuals and as a couple so I can best offer advice, suggestions, vendors, and services that will best accommodate their preferences and personalities while always keeping budget in mind. In order to select the style of wedding that best captures your vision of your day, we get to know your preferences and personality while accommodating your budget and specific needs.
My Free Time: With two children and a successful business, free time is tough to come by however I love to travel, enjoy the Colorado outdoors, cooking and creating new recipes, interior design, and to spend time with my kids and husband. And on any given day, I am creating and brainstorming and envisioning our next event!
A native of Colorado, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Colorado State University. Go RAMS! I gained experience in hospitality at a Marriott property, working event and guest check-in. I had the pleasure of working with Jessica Adler at that property and have enjoyed being part of JA Special Events since its second year in business, first as an assistant and now as a Day-of-Event Coordinator. I love working with Jessica; her meticulous attention to detail really helps me love what I do!
On the weekdays, I’m a Dental Hygenist. I have a wonderful and supportive husband and wouldn’t be able to do all of the things I love without him being there. We have a beautiful daughter who reminds us every day how to laugh and see the world in an innocent and beautiful way. In my “free” time I love to read, knit, and spend as much time as possible with my family and friends. I cannot wait to work with you and to help to make your big day special!
The mystery lady!
