JENNIFER LOWRANCE – AN “ EVENT- FUL” LIFE
Event planners are born, not made. And no one is better living proof of that than Jennifer Lowrance, founder of J Low Events.
For the past seventeen years, Jen has been actively and successfully involved in the event planning industry. But as Jen will tell you, it’s not just in the planning, it’s also in the execution. Many times, with even the most meticulous planning of every bit of minutia that goes into an event, be it a wedding, a holiday party, an anniversary, a bar mitzvah, a retirement, or just an organization wanting to celebrate a milestone, you almost always have to have a “Plan B”, and many times a “Plan C, D, and E”.
Starting out in sales and event coordination with both CC Creations and The Chef’s Table at Bella Terrazza, Jen learned all aspects of the trade before taking on the task of working to create an award-winning venue where she would spend the next eight years.
Jen partnered with Bill and Jorden Mahler to create Briscoe Manor, a full-service event facility just west of Houston. In addition to finishing the final remnants of the architectural and interior design of the facility, Jen also used her experience (and her Communications Degree from Texas A&M University) to develop and implement the business model, marketing campaign, and event planning systems for Briscoe Manor.
Hundreds of events and several years later, Jen took on the task of developing a full sales and event coordinating team to support the fast pace and busy booking schedule. Her role evolved into being a mentor to the staff and training the event team to continue the legacy of service and hospitality.
Along the way, Jen won accolades from hundreds of more-than-satisfied customers, as well as being named as a Fort Bend County Rising Star, and having Briscoe Manor named as “Best Wedding Venue” for four consecutive years by The Knot, Wedding Wire, and Houston’s “A”List.
Since her entry into the industry in 2001, Jen has planned and executed almost 1,300 events with great success. Jen has also spent her career building a reputation with industry vendors and clients that has allowed her to position herself with the opportunity to launch her own independent planning company.
In 2013, with the blessing of Briscoe Manor, Jen decided to use her experience in a new way by opening J Low Events, a total event planning firm literally planning everything from soup to nuts, as well as venues, décor, food, entertainment, and everything else that goes into planning and executing all types of events.
Her extensive and intensive amount of time within the event industry as catering manager, event coordinator, developer of award winning (full service) private venue and business owner has seasoned her to be one of the leaders in the Houston market.
Also, it’s given her the ability to connect with a wide variety of clients, cultures and style of events – whether it is producing an intimate dinner for 12 in someone’s home to a large wedding celebration, Jen has been either behind the scenes or on the reception floor coordinating the cadence for a flawless event.
When not running J Low Events, Jen enjoys spending time with her family traveling and entertaining (you can take the girl out of the events, but you can’t take the events out of the girl). Her genuine Texas personality lends her to be a gracious host, dynamic coordinator and trusted professional. Her treasured compliments after every event – “you were like having a good ole friend”, “you made me feel like the most important person on my special day” or “you thought of everything”!
So, if you’re looking to have an event with flair, something out of the ordinary, and one where absolutely nothing will fall through the cracks, call Jen at J Low Events. It will most definitely be an affair to remember.
