J'aime Events - Full Service Wedding and Event Planning in Minneapolis, MN

Introduction

Jaime Engebretson
Owner and Executive Event Planner


We love events and can’t wait to plan yours!

We are led by Owner and Executive Event Planner Jaime Engebretson. Those who know Jaime best know she’ll take any opportunity to plan a party! She’s a typical oldest child who enjoys organizing and getting things done. Her personal life reflects the passion she has for event planning. She’s constantly flipping through magazines and scrolling through Pinterest to find new ideas for how to take events to the next level. And she’s fortunate to have a loving husband who encourages her enthusiasm for creating and organizing.

What started as an eagerness to plan baby and bridal showers for family and friends and a talent for day-of wedding coordination, grew into a passion Jaime couldn’t ignore. It gave her the push to start her own event planning business after 15 years in the corporate world where she honed her project and time management skills. Her natural knack for planning coupled with a Masters in Project Management and a certification from the New York Institute of Arts for Event Planning, make her equipped to plan any event you can dream of.

Whether it’s a corporate event, holiday party, or your wedding, hiring J’aime Events will be “one of the best decisions” you make! (Yep—those are a words straight from an awesome client. You can check out that full testimonial and others here.) And the event industry has taken notice of our exceptional work. We’ve had events featured in several publications including MN Bride and have received several awards. We’re extremely proud of those accomplishments and believe they are a true testament to our talent and dedication to making sure everything is perfect for our clients.


J’aime Events will handle everything for your event—from initial consultation to finishing touches, nothing is too big or too small for us to take care of. We’ll treat your event like our own to make sure everything comes together flawlessly—and with no stress to you! When the big day comes it’s the mission of J’aime Events to make sure you’re able to sit back and enjoy every moment.

  4. A handwritten note to express your feelings on your wedding day is a special keepsake.  But when it is from your mom who has dreamed of this day since you were a little kid, now that is a pure treasure!

  5. I love when couples get to enjoy moments for just the two of them during their wedding day.  Stealing kisses when nobody is watching.

  6. With Prom season right now it made me think back to when my prom date presented me with a #wristcorsage.  Wrist corsages are not just for prom!  They are such a great option for Mothers and Grandmothers.  You don't need to worry about the material of the dress they are wearing and if the flowers will be too heavy and pull down on the dress.  It's also a lot easier to put on then the pin corsages.

  11. Most people don’t think about having photos taken at a smaller event but memories are still being made.  With a smaller guest list that means they are significant people at this point in your life.  So make sure you take photos at you bridal shower, your baby shower, those newborn photos.  The cost is more than covered by the joy you will experience every time you look at those photos!

  19. Sheila's dress was gorgeous!  I saw it hanging in the getting ready room and thought wow that is pretty but then I saw it on Sheila and it fit her perfectly.  It was like that dress was made for her. ⠀

  20. Because sometimes you just need Doritos!⠀
⠀
I don't think I have ever had to worry about how to get Doritos out of a dress before or if the bride would have orange fingers in her wedding photos.  It all worked out and the bridesmaids promised to dive in front of a crumb if it dared to fall on the dress.

  22. These paper cranes flew all the way from Hawaii to be the beautiful backdrop for the head table for Carla & Lexi's wedding day.  Even more special they were hand folded by Carla's mom and brought with her in her suitcase.  So impressive that she could fit 1,000 cranes in her suitcase!⠀
⠀
The 1,000 cranes are a traditional Japanese wedding gift and represent a wish for the couple to have a thousand years of happiness and prosperity as a couple.  #1000papercranes

  28. Make sure to take moments for just the two of you throughout your wedding day.  It's a celebration of your love and the commitment the two of you are making. ⠀
⠀
After the first look, just talk for a few minutes about how the morning was for each of you.  After the ceremony, grab a conference room or take a spin in your limo around the block to just let it all sink in.  Another great time is sneaking off for sunset photos and then taking a short walk together before heading back in for dancing.  The day moves so fast so steal those moments if even for a second.⠀

  30. I absolutely love this photo of Tina dancing with her dad.  It's such a special moment for a father and daughter to be able to connect on the wedding day.  There are definitely some tried and true #fatherdaughterdance songs but what is a song that you danced with your dad to or plan to dance with him on your wedding day?  I want to hear some new ones!⠀
