As a leading luxury wedding planner in Beverly Hills, Jonathan Reeves founded International Event Company in April of 2007. Jonathan’s professional experience involves being the Director of Catering at the Four Seasons Los Angeles, followed by the Director of Catering and Conference Services at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel. Over the past 13 years, International Event Company has grown to include a remarkable team of event producers – Jennifer Newmark, Amy Schuster, and Mari Tsuchiyama – who join Jonathan in planning and designing the most glamorous events throughout Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and beyond. Having been featured several times in Wedding Style, International Event Company is a definite favorite among high-end couples; and the personal stories they share about their wedding experiences make it clear why I.E.C. has earned its reputation as at leading luxury wedding planning group in Beverly Hills.
Last year, International Event Company planned a lavish wedding at the Beverly Wilshire for Fiona and Trent Revic (pictured above), which was featured in the Fall/Winter 2019 print issue of Wedding Style. The main décor aspect that stood out was the use of calla lilies, which were transformed into the most spectacular floral chandeliers, elegantly dripping down above the spotless white dance floor. Fiona mentioned how she was insistent on having a modern wedding with a less-traditional aesthetic, and the I.E.C. team succeeded in surpassing her expectations.
“I.E.C. was absolutely amazing,” said Fiona. “Even before we contracted with them, Jonathan spent over an hour on the phone with my mom, walking through all the details. We also designed the flower chandeliers together. I cannot stress how much effort and details the planners put into this – it was one of those things where you just had to be there. I had planned it, and my breath would still catch when I looked around that room.”
Even when working with a luxury wedding planner, the process can be stressful when dealing with different personalities and opinions about the overall vision. Couples, however, continue to rave about collaborating with International Event Company and how easy it was to communicate with the team.
“Planning our wedding was so exciting and easy – especially with the help of International Event Company,” says Erika, a former I.E.C. bride. “Jonathan Reeves and Margot Hummel made the process so enjoyable and smooth. Jonathan and I are both conservative and have a classic taste, so we both agreed to have soft pastel colors for our ballroom.”
It’s wonderful to have a dream team of talented wedding vendors and designers, but it’s even better when brides and grooms feel welcome to collaborate with those planners and truly personalize every aspect of their big day. Dream weddings in Beverly Hills begin with an I.E.C. consultation; and fortunately, this luxury wedding planning group is available for destination celebrations as well.
