Mi Gente: The Quinlans

mi gente

This is the first of a new series in my Deep Thoughts that will be dedicated to some of my favorite humans in the world, my clients.... Mi Gente: My People.

In the hopes of helping everyone learn a lil more about the process of this new experience called DNP. I wanted to give you the inside view of what its like to work with my clients, how it starts as a creative idea from my heart and brain, then put in from of my clients, and they execute in their own special way. Everyone wins!



Chelsea  & Lee Quinlan are a very special couple from Richmond, VA and like the millions of Americans who visit this huge city every year the Quinlans wanted a very special night out, but something different than what a guide book or magazine could suggest but something they shouldn't skip. As Chelsea Quinlan is a good friend I suggested she block out a night while visiting the city that I would take the planning reigns, she was instantly excited!

I know as an avid traveler myself there is nothing more exciting than having someone you know, love and trust to be in charge of the planning. Someone who wouldn't force you too far out of your comfort zone but still keep you on your toes. New York City is full of tourist traps, horrible restaurants, lines and overall money-sucking attractions that any tourist could get sucked in to. My job was to give Chelsea & Lee one night they would always remember. I know  did my job right the next time i saw lee he ran across the room and threw his arms around me "it was perfect! I felt so special!!!" Now that's what im here for! 

Here is what she had to say:

“I can’t even describe how amazing our night was. Jema thought of every detail, and I mean every little thing. From the window seat at the restaurant looking directly at the Rockefeller Center tree, to the surprise champagne toast, to the idea of going to Top of the Rock knowing how much we love the city! She thought of everything. We don’t live in NYC but try to visit as often as we can. We also try to see and do as much as we can but there are still things we just don’t think of or don’t even know about. DNP brought this all together for us on one beautiful night that we will never forget. Ever. We’ll definitely be using DateNight Planners again the next time we make our way back to New York City.”
