As the go-to wedding planner for chic New Orleans couples, we have refined our signature 5-phase process to give you the minimal-stress planning experience you need, so you get the elegant, luxurious wedding you deserve.

A Phenomenal Experience From Beginning to End

More Than a Wedding

you need the best of the best.

For a wedding like this,

You want a wedding that is elegant, sophisticated, luxe — one where your families and friends can have an experience unlike any other. For that to happen, you’re starting to realize you need a different kind of planner. You need a planner who isn't afraid to talk numbers and make it happen - no matter what it is. Someone who isn't afraid to pull out all the stops, because their ultimate goal is putting together a wedding that will be more than a dream wedding. Because you want a wedding that will be an experience. 

When it comes to planning your perfect wedding, one thing is for sure: no detail can go unnoticed. 


As the leading wedding planner for elegant New Orleans couples, we’re passionate about helping you create the once-in-a-lifetime wedding you've been dreaming about since the moment you fell in love.

I’ve always been creative and a natural-born planner, but it wasn’t until I planned my own wedding that I realized my unique talent for planning weddings and coordinating them down to the minutest detail.

After planning and coordinating elegant weddings for some of the most stylish couples of New Orleans, I have refined my signature 5-phase system to an art, allowing you to be involved as much (or as little) as you would like to be.

I’m Jerenisha, Lead Creative Director and Founder of J. Ivy Affairs.

Mais, cher! Hey, y’all!

As a full-service wedding planner, my role is to execute the wedding day the very best I can. I want to take roles AWAY from you (and your mom!), so y'all can focus on the memories and moments.

I promise to always give it to you straight, match your determined energy, and find creative solutions to any unexpected challenges that may arise.
