Jill and her staff will find a solution to any event need. We work closely with every client to ensure your vision comes true. This means going the extra mile to show different concepts and ideas for each event.
As a Certified Minister, Jill has been performing ceremonies in the Florida Keys for almost a decade. She can recommend numerous locations on both land and sea. She customizes all wedding vows so that you can incorporate your ideas to make them perfect.
Jill was born and raised at the shore in South Jersey. She started her career in wedding and event planning in a party retail store at 16 years old. She then went on to attend college at the University of South Florida, to study Physical Wellness and Gerantology. Shortly after, she moved to The Florida Keys and has now been in The Keys for 16 years. Jill entered into the wedding world as soon as she arrived. She had no idea that her passion was in the wedding industry until she started working on events and realized that her handy mechanical skills actually come to play when designing a wedding. She loves to work with the square footage of a space to customize the set up that will work best for an event.
Jill is also an Officiate/Reverend and works closely with each of her couples to customize each of the ceremonies that she performs. She loves details and exudes an energy that just does not quit! If something breaks, her passion is not to say “no,” but to fix it on the spot. Jill loves the energy of a wedding. The ability to service all aspects of a wedding with her own product allows her to see every detail from the beginning of the planning to the end.
Jill is very blessed to have been published in DYI Magazine, Style Me Pretty, Borrowed and Blue, and The Floridian magazine. Weddings just make her smile!

Why Use A Wedding Planner?
Over the years in the party rental and event rental business, I’ve picked up on a few things. One of which is the difference between a bride who hires a wedding planner and one who doesn’t. The difference is huge. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the most wonderful brides, grooms, and families having their weddings here in the fabulous Florida Keys. It is inevitable that plans go awry without a professional wedding planner. In meetings with clients I find myself going on and on about the merits of hiring a planner and then come to my senses and realize that I should probably get back to talking with them about their equipment rental needs.
I decided one way to get the point across, without letting my sales pitch for hiring a planner take over the meeting, is to include a “top 10 list” of reasons to hire a planner here on my website. Please know that this list is put together from years of experience in the event equipment rental business.

“I am so happy the Mile Marker team was able to work with us for our wedding in February! The week of our wedding was the first time we had even traveled to the Keys, so planning everything from a distance was a bit of a challenge. Luckily Mile Marker had set up weddings at the house we were renting several times before, and Erika went out of her way to send me several recommendations and suggestions on how to set up the beach – including some photos of previous weddings at that house. Every small question and change I requested (and there were many) were quickly responded to with plenty of detail and adjusted in our contract. From the little details like table sashes to the gorgeous bistro lighting – we were so thrilled with how everything came together! Our reception was a big hit – the bartender was super fun, and the boat bar was so awesome!!! Thank you to everyone at Mile Marker who worked together for us!”
“Hi Jill, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for being our officiant and for performing a beautiful ceremony for us. You were so helpful and we so appreciate it. You made the whole process very easy for us and made us feel comfortable the whole time. We got several comments from our guests about how nice, professional and funny you were. We agree and were so happy to have you as our officiant! I will be sure to write a great review on wedding wire. A friend of mine even asked for your information for her own wedding. Thank you for everything!”

“We had our wedding in Islamorada on November 8, 2014 and rented tables, chairs, glassware and a P.A. system from MMPR. I probably changed our list of equipment needed 9 or 10 times as our guest list was finalized and our preferences evolved. Jill and Erika were ALWAYS responsive and ALWAYS willing to help. In fact, the equipment was dropped off on Thursday (11/6) when we arrived at the venue to start setting up and was picked up on Monday (11/10) so we had plenty of time to break everything down at a leisurely pace. Prices were in line or lower than competitors and the variety of items available to rent was much greater than other vendors in the area. Plus, Jill and Erika aren't pushy at all! MMPR is run like any business should be run: highest quality customer service, flexibility for customers, great pricing and selection and they put the customer first. Jill, Erika & crew run a Class A operation!”
