Professional Wedding Consultant Spotlight: A Day Like No Other
We’d like you to meet one of our Members, Jutta Lammerts, Professional Wedding Consultant and Owner of A Day Like No Other.
What got you into the business, Jutta? When our son and his wonderful fiancee announced their wedding plans, we were “over the moon,” and even more so when the two promoted me to exclusive wedding planner. I immediately jumped into planning mode, and I loved every minute of the year-long endeavor! The wedding grew to a 3-day affair in 4 different places and with guests from 3 continents – and I just had to live up to the occasion. In the end, it was a big success, and I was hooked, because wedding planning has proved positively addictive! I had, in fact, found my new vocation, and that was the starting point for A Day Like No Other – Wedding Coordination and Design. Several years and many weddings later, I am still as thrilled and as enthusiastic about wedding planning as ever – just ask my brides and the colleagues with whom I am collaborating for my events.
Please tell us a bit about your skills and training. I am not only the author of Wedding Woof, I am also planning and designing elegant, personalized weddings at the most beautiful venues in the San Francisco Bay Area and all of Northern California. My business is “A Day Like No Other,” and that’s what I design for my couples – a dream Wedding Day! As a Professional Wedding Consultant, trained and certified by the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants, and as the Events Committee Chair, Northern California, of the Wedding Industry Professionals Association, I bring experience, expertise and enthusiasm to my wedding projects
Will you please tell us a little bit about your business? My business, A Day Like No Other – Wedding Coordination and Design, is a boutique full-service wedding planning company located on the San Francisco Peninsula, offering services throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area, but also down the Peninsula as far south as Monterey/Carmel and up north to the Napa/Sonoma Wine Country.
It’s a true labor of love: I absolutely love every moment of my work, I enjoy jumping into the excitement of planning with my brides (and grooms), of brainstorming ideas, developing a design scheme, and of making their Great Day into something totally personal, totally unheard-of, A Day Like No Other, in short!
I create totally unique weddings reflecting the personality and style of the couple, be it simple and elegant, or over-the-top glamorous, or nostalgic and whimsical, or cutting-edge urban chic – I’ll come up with design and décor ideas to express my couple’s individuality. My goal is to create wonderful memories for a lifetime both for the couple and for their families, friends and all guests.
In my work, I am not only creative – I am also exceptionally well-organized with great attention to detail. I have superior social skills, I work hard, I am a team player with all the other vendors at a wedding, and that way I achieve seamless events and flawless execution. Five-star reviews on yelp and on Wedding Wire are proof of my success in the field.
My company’s unique specialty are dog-friendly weddings from Rehearsal Dinner to ceremony, reception and wedding dinner (I can even offer a five-star hotel with Michelin-starred restaurant among the choices!) right to planning a dog-inclusive Honeymoon.
A Day Like No Other is growing fast, now requiring the help of assistants to handle the growing number of weddings, professional and corporate events currently “in the works.” In addition to my dedication to my company, I am also an active blog-writer (my blog, Wedding Woof, enjoys 300 to 500 site visits per day) and contributor to wedding-related publications. What’s next? I am hoping to expand my business to clients overseas (Europe, East Asia) and to offer elopement and destination SF packages including 24/7 travel guides and interpreters – but that’s still in the planning stages!
Thank you for sharing with us Jutta. We are very proud to have you as a Member of the ACPWC and would highly recommend you as a top notch Professional Wedding Consultant.
