Thinks outside the box,
Jen is a fun, vibrant, romantic woman. She was raised by an empowering mom and a loving dad. Combining those personalities gives us this self-created charismatic woman.
Jen was born in the land of tequila (Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico). She has had a connection with the American world since she was a little girl. Being only 11 years old, her parents sent her on a study abroad experience to Minnesota. Later on, they realized that the adventure changed her life and was probably the reason why she turned out the way she is now.
Jen started her planning career working for one of the largest DMCs (Destination Management Company) in Mexico. She initially ventured into the corporate side of the business, but was truly passionate about weddings, setting the stage for her transformation.
She decided to follow her heart 10 years ago - and since then, she has been creating the dreamiest weddings.
Jen understands destination weddings more than most. She jumped in the pool herself in January 2014 and married the love of her life; and now lives happily with her husband Mike, son Aaron, and dog C.J. in Chicago, IL, USA.
Her love for Mexico and passion for weddings created My Event by Jen Kasten: A wedding planning company that while based in the US, caters exclusively to destination weddings in Mexico. She is a perfect fit for this line of business: A Mexican destination wedding planner that grew up in Mexico, currently lives in the US, and planned her own destination wedding.
Jen’s planning style is personalized, friendly, laid back and efficient. She shares her knowledge with her clients and is always happy to spice things up with her life experiences and fun perspective of the world. She is not afraid to think outside the box and always invests her soul in her clients’ dreams.
