As you already know my name is Jael ( I put a second L because I want to let people know I am a woman ...LOLLL) I’ve been a Wedding Planner for the past six years now and I’ve always wanted to do that and I love my job.
I’ve got a degree in hospitality management. I worked in this field for about 20 years, in Guadeloupe, where I was born. I’ve got really fond memories of these great years when I honed a lot of qualities that now allow me to be a good manager in my own wedding planning company that I have here in Haiti.
I wanted to be a Wedding Planner since I was little because my mom was specialized in making wedding dresses; that’s how I got into this business. Family friends often asked her to help in organizing their weddings and I often gave her a helping hand especially in decorating, and I loved that. As time went by, I really liked working in this field.
When I met my husband during my many professional missions in Haiti I decided to stay there. But I didn’t think about founding my own company until a friend of mine (Cassandre), asked me to take care of her wedding and that’s how everything started out.
I love my work as a Wedding Planner and Wedding Designer in Haiti... But what I love the best is proposing Haiti as a “destination wedding.” Haiti has a different type of landscape and is an extraordinary place to get married. Whether it’s on the beach, in the countryside with its lush landscapes, in the mountains or in the beautiful hotels, frankly we’re every bit as good as the other Caribbean countries. We have idyllic and breathtaking landscapes to make every wedding a unique one.
One other thing I like about Haiti is the people I work with, the vendors who work with me are very professional and together we made a great team. Nothing is impossible in terms of creativity - they’re very receptive.

Always stay true to yourself, always be open to learn, work hard, and never give up. Never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don't invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.
