Jennifer Bergman - President
Renowned for her cutting edge approach to event design and astute insight into the needs of her clientele, Jennifer prides herself on bringing the joy and emotion of each occasion to the forefront of your day. She believes that professionalism and an open line of communication with each couple is integral to achieving an event you’ll be truly ecstatic about for years to come.
Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Jennifer is a Certified Wedding Coordinator through The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada (WPIC) and has a Bachelor of Commerce specializing in Marketing from the Alberta School of Business. Prior to launching JBW in 2008, she gained crucial event planning experience organizing large, multi-day conventions, and honed her creative and design skills working on national advertising campaigns.
Jennifer has served on the Board of Directors for the Alberta School of Business Alumni Association and the International Live Events Association (Edmonton Chapter), and donates her time and event planning skills to the Stollery Women’s Network. In 2010, Jennifer was named one of Edmontonians Magazine’s Sizzling Twenty Under 30.
Suzanne Dargis - Lead Coordinator
Suzanne started with JBW as an intern in 2013 and has since become an integral part of the team, working up to her current role as Lead Coordinator.
Raised on a farm with a large family, Suzanne attended many weddings growing up, developing her love for weddings at a young age. She has a true passion for event planning and enjoys every aspect of this crazy job – the heavy lifting, multitasking, working with fellow wedding professionals, and above all – helping make a couple’s day run seamlessly so they can fully enjoy the experience with their loved ones.
Suzanne is a trained makeup artist and has her diploma in Fashion Apparel and Technology, which is where she gets her keen eye for design and detail. Her warm disposition and resourcefulness make her a calming presence on a wedding day, and she’s always prepared for anything that comes her way.
Sydnie Schneider - Lead Coordinator
Sydnie joined JBW at the start of the 2014 season as an Assistant Coordinator, gaining a broad range of experience on weddings of all types and sizes. Most recently, she has taken the reigns as Lead Coordinator working with some of our Wedding Day Management clients. With a background in office management and administration, Sydnie’s organizational skills and attention to detail make her a natural at event planning.
For Sydnie, the most gratifying part of a wedding day is seeing the newlyweds’ faces when they walk into their dream wedding that we’ve produced for them.
When she’s not working or making wedding dreams come true, you’ll find Sydnie delving into a new book, perusing fashion blogs for inspiration, or exploring new cities with her husband, Terry.
