5 Things to Know About J. Leigh Event’s Founder & Creative Director

J. Leigh Events, a full-service, event planning company based in Charlotte, NC, is owned and managed by the one and only Jennifer Bishop. (Just call her Jen.)

Here are five things to know about Jen:

1. Jen founded J. Leigh Events five years ago. Funny enough - she never saw a career in events coming. She was working as an Administrative Assistant at the time; event planning requests started to come to her. She was open and eager to try it.

“I never thought about event planning before then - and then it just kind of fell in my lap; I ended up falling in love with it while at my job,” she said in a recent interview.

2. Today, she offers to clients a variety of comprehensive packages and services that guarantee event planning, management, and execution - but she’s more concerned about offering clients a well-run, memorable, and stress-free experience.

3. She’s been in this business for approximately 15 years; she planned events that range from large-scale corporate or community events to intimate bridal showers and birthday parties.

4. She’s a punctual and prudent Type-A personality who loves timelines, details and controlling the chaos. ‘Nuf said.

4. What’s she over-the-moon excited about these days? Two words - Party Perfected.

5. J. Leigh’s Party Perfected just might be party simplicity and branding at its finest - all your party needs in one box as well as a guide written by Bishop herself to help the party planner recreate trendy party looks we gush over via Pinterest or IG. Best news ever? Party boxes and add-ons are available right now.

(Okay, we lied - one more.)

6. Why does Jen do what she does? “There’s just nothing like seeing an event’s end result, but more importantly - being able to see just how much fun people are having at an event together,” she notes . < Insert praise hands here. >

With every end, comes a new beginning. In this particular context, I’m talking about the end of summer, and the new beginning of the school year. (Kids probably aren’t ready - and parents are so ready.)

A new school often means earlier bedtimes, more traffic, nagging homework, and endless after-school activities. And then you wake up, and it’s next summer, and you realize that you’ve lost all track of time.

Sometimes birthdays and special occasions that happen right after school starts or right after Labor Day get the bum rush because we’re coming up the curve with a new school year.
