About Us – Jerry Arduino opened Beardsley Events in 2006 initially as a Company that distributes supplies and décor for the Event/Party Industry. In early 2007 he expanded to add Event Planning for Weddings, Corporate Functions, Social Functions, and Special Events to its services. Jerry holds a certification as an International Event and Wedding Planning Professional (IEWP). A successful entrepreneur since 1995, Jerry’s upbeat attitude, attention to detail, and his passion to organize all aspects of a function has resulted in many satisfied clients over the years exceeding their expectations. We at Beardsley Events are industry professionals that pay attention to every detail. We stay in constant touch with our clients and assure them that their special event will be handled with extreme care. Customer satisfaction is our primary goal and we work hard to deliver the level of quality you are paying for. In addition, Jerry’s affiliation with ILEA (International Live Events Association) gives him access to hundreds of vendors that you can trust with a history of working on numerous events. These vendors have consistently provided amazing service, and will work with our team to stay within your budget!
With our attention to detail and calm approach it couldn’t get any easier. From start to finish we’ll handle EVERYTHING, working with you to develop your vision and theme, create and manage a budget, select a venue and book vendors (catering, entertainment, photographers, videographers, transportation, etc.).
If you’ve already started planning your upcoming event and aren’t sure how much help you need, this is likely the package for you. We’ll work with you to assess your needs, and then fill in wherever needed. This may involve key vendor selection or working with your venue or existing vendors to define responsibilities and coordinate logistics.
If you already have a plan in place, and just need us to execute it, then the Day of Coordination package is for you. We will begin working with you 4 to 6 weeks out, once all vendors are contracted. This typically involves coordination between your venue and vendors to make sure everything runs smoothly on your big day. Answering any and all questions so that you don’t have to lift a finger!
There are so many special touches that create a fabulous celebration. The place cards,centerpieces, entertainment, decor, lighting and favors, greeting your vendors, overseeing the set up and the list goes on!
As event planners we are always asked what are the benefits of hiring a coordinator and the one thing we would always recommend to every couple out there is to hire a Day of Coordinator to help run all the events on the day of the wedding, especially if they are planning their own wedding. Now you may be thinking, “Why would I do that when I can set it up myself?” or “I just don’t have the budget for that!”
Yes, most of the time your venue will set the tables with tablecloths and put the correct number of chairs at each table, but many brides don’t realize how many details go into coordinating everything for set-up!
Working with Jerry was a true pleasure. He listens and wants you to have your event your way and he makes that happen. He has terrific ideas and we appreciated all of his suggestions and recommendations. He is so precise and works with such professionalism and, yet, he is so accessible. If you want your party to go as perfectly as possible, call Jerry.
I cannot say enough about Jerry and Beardsley Events. I hired him and his partner, Tessa, to be my day of wedding coordinators, but they were SO much more than that! They were there months in advance for me and my husband. They answered any and all questions I had for them along the way. Jerry was attentive, responsive and kind. As an event planner myself, I know what it takes to be successful at an event, and Jerry embodied it. As I've said to several friends and family members, Jerry and Tessa were "worth their weight in gold!" Thank you for helping our wedding day go just as planned!
I had a great time, and I also found it hard to sleep last night from all the excitement from the night. The night was just great to see where we came from, our roots, and the people that gave us great memories. Again, thank you and the committee for this wonderful night.
Beardsley Events is the most classiest & creative event planning services on the east coast. Jerry Arduino is one of the most talented people I know.
My wife Lori and myself could not be more happier with our wedding on 5/6/16 at The Chart House, Weehawken, NJ. Jerry & Tessa, where do I even begin, from the rehearsal to the wedding, you guys rose to the top of our expectations, everyone bragged how much fun it was, and even though you all had a job to do, we hardly even noticed you were there. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We love you guys! We highly recommended everyone to you! Last thing being said, no way we could of pulled off such an awesome wedding without you both!!! Roger and Lori Gurley
Beardsley Events helped me plan two milestone Birthday parties. Jerry was reliable, professional, organized and brought great ideas to the table. It was great to be a guest at my party and know all the details were in good hands. I highly recommend Beardsley Events to plan your next event!
"What a great job you did! I love the candy bag. Too funny!!! When I watched the video I was balling my eyes out. Thanks again for the memories!"
I just wanted to thank you and the reunion committee for your extraordinary efforts in bringing together all the old friends who made up the Carteret community. Your group created a very special night - full of wonderful Carteret memories, friends and family. It was an emotional evening and, in a very real way, embodied what truly makes a community special – its people and value set. For my own part, I wish we could do this every year, and I am pretty sure I am not alone in this thinking. Thank you again
Events can be stressful to plan so having someone to support you through the process can be a huge relief. Family and friends may not be the best support when it comes to planning an event so many clients turn to Event planners to receive the ultimate guidance they need and honest opinions.
Event planners have exceptional attention-to-detail ways of thinking that will make your event go from “WOW” to SPECTACULAR. Event planners can take the wedding or event of your dreams and make it better than you had imagined and cover all the little details
Although, there is a price to have an event planner by your side through the planning process, this, will help you save money in the long-run. Most credible event planners have connections to all types of vendors, which can lead to special discounts that may not have been offered otherwise. Event planners work within your budget and can execute your event to be all you had imagined and more!
Left to your own devices, you might have a fairly sparse event, sans decoration – think in terms of technical and practical needs. But ILEA Members know that part of what makes for a great event is that it looks and feels great. There are tons of details like this that you may never think of on our own. Things like, did you know that if you angle your audience chairs a certain way, it makes them feel more involved and engaged? This was just one of a hundred details non-ILEA Members don’t know and wouldn’t have thought of.
Most folks have never had occasion to use a videographer in Indianapolis, so you might have no idea who to hire. Whenever you are doing something for your home, you may check websites like Angie’s List, which is a great service…but you may never feel completely sure that you can rely on the reports in Angie’s List, so you might still feel like you have to do a lot of research after finding a few companies with positive reviews.
Most event planners have been in the business and have planned many events during their career. Event planners know what venues to use, vendors to avoid, current trends/styles, and how to rise above obstacles. There is very little that a good event planner/producer can’t do, so let the planner use their knowledge to allow you to enjoy your event, your Gala.
Planning events can take an incredible amount of time. Many people do not know exactly how much time is put into planning and executing an event. In order to have a successful event everything must be coordinated in a timely manner and this is an area of expertise for event planners. Planners can take care of all the details for your event that you may not have the time for.
Where you should host your event- what city and where in the city- depends on the kind of event you’re hosting and what your goals are in the event. Your ILEA event professional will help you choose a venue that can actually help you meet your goals for your event. This is something that can affect attendance, sales, and a whole bunch of other stuff.
Your ILEA event professional will know not just one great videographer, but several – all ILEA members of course! And s/he will also know several A/V companies, so s/he could get several quotes for you to review. Because of the number of events s/he’s done with each of these companies, s/he knows the pros and cons of each and can help you make the best choices and stay on-budget.
