Today we are speaking to Jove Meyer of Jove Meyer Events! JME is a boutique wedding planning and design firm for couples who dare to be different, powered by partnerships with fellow small businesses. They prioritize working with the best in the industry, and collaborating with businesses owned and operated by women, people of color, and queer people. They specialize in creative, personalized weddings that are a reflection of each couple's unique style, personality, and relationship. Jove believes in a relaxed approach when guiding the planning and design process, creating a fun and stress-free experience with as much champagne or tequila as possible.

Jove Meyer Events was born after Jove planned and designed his best friend's wedding in the summer of 2008 and loved every minute of it. In the years since he has been named one of the Top Wedding Planners in the world by Harper’s Bazaar. The Knot has called him a Wedding Wizard and listed him as one of the top 100 wedding pros! Us Weekly has named him a wedding guru and Brides has listed him as a top planner in America. He has also won the Couples Choice Award from WeddingWire and BizBash has listed him as top 500 event pros in the country. Jove and his work has been featured in magazines and blogs worldwide: The New York Times, Vogue, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, Refinery29, Marie Claire, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake, Ruffled and many more.

Jove Meyer is the host of the popular podcast Weddings-ish with Jove! He is the creator of the “Totes Getting Married” tote bag and the founder of the NYC Planners Dining Club - a group of wedding planners who gather to connect, dine and experience new vendors. Jove is also a regular event expert on The Rachael Ray Show! In addition to planning and designing, Jove speaks around the world to educate and inspire fellow event professionals.

Jove is a passionate advocate for marriage equality and inclusivity. He co-taught the first LGBT+ wedding webinar in partnership with The Knot and speaks about attracting and working with queer couples and running an inclusive company worldwide on stages including The Knot Workshops, the Engage Summit, Destination Wedding Planners Congress, and many others.
