Jenifour Jones, Catalyst for Love
When it comes to great acts of romance, tears of joy are the litmus test that separates successful from unforgettable. In this world, you’d be hard-pressed to find another woman who makes it rain sodium chloride more than event planner extraordinaire Jenifour Jones. Tears of joy, memories to last a lifetime and unbelievable moments are all part of what Jones and her firm Go Get It Events bring to every marriage proposal, birthday and other celebratory events.
The enterprising event planner from Louisville, Kentucky graduated from Boston’s Emerson College with a degree in acting and television/film production. At 22, she packed her things and travelled west to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in the entertainment industry. The beautiful and brilliant southern belle worked as an actress, a producer and moonlighted as an event planner. She gained recognition from producers after planning a few of their festive events. From that moment, she says “things just started to fall into place.”
Seven years in the business of making dreams reality, Go Get It Events proudly claims success on a global scale through satisfied word-of-mouth referrals from clients and concierge services in the U.S. and abroad. Go Get It Events delivers that extraordinary touch to everything it passionately produces. Whether your budget is under $1,000 or over a million, the level of passion Jones brings to your life, and the life of your loved ones, exceeds all expectations. Actors, pilots – you name it – if it’s legal and you want it, chances are Jones can make it happen.
One of her finest moments came last year. A client of hers chartered a cruise ship for his wife’s 50th birthday party, and wanted to continue the festivities onto a secluded beach in Montenegro. The problem? The island her client wanted was the one he couldn’t have – cruise ships were forbidden to dock on this specific isle.
The challenge for Jones was to convince a foreign official to grant her client’s chartered million-dollar cruise ship access to the island. A dedicated Jones flew from Los Angeles to Montenegro to speak with its minister of transportation. To the grand delight of her client, she didn’t take no for an answer and somehow convinced the bureaucrat to make an exception just that one time. “After convincing a foreign official, I realized that anything is possible,” says Jones.
Jones is a working example of passionately pursuing a pastime and turning it into a career. Since starting Go Get It Events, the entrepreneur has enjoyed turning fantasy into reality for her clients. “I help create some of the most special and amazing moments for people. To see happy couples, to hear how amazing it was, that is my payment … I am so satisfied in helping people have a good time. Nothing makes me happier.”
