Meet Jennifer Ball, the Visionary Behind Knot Your Average Events

With over 24 years of event planning experience, Jennifer Ball, the founder and lead event planner at Knot Your Average Events, has carved a niche in the industry by specializing in weddings for the past 21 years. As of December 1, 2023, she has had the honor of orchestrating an impressive 385 solo weddings, with the count steadily approaching 480 when including collaborative efforts with other event companies.

Jennifer’s journey into wedding coordination began with a personal story — her first wedding. Motivated by the desire to spare others from missing special moments like her first dance and cake cutting, she vowed to ensure every couple’s day is as magical and stress-free as possible.

Her extensive background includes a decade as a site manager, sales consultant, and wedding planner for a venue, where she witnessed couples being exhausted on their big day, missing key appointments, and cleaning up in their wedding attire. This experience fueled her commitment to making sure no one else’s special moments are missed.

At Knot Your Average Events, Jennifer saw an opportunity over a decade ago to create a guest experience like no other. The mission is clear — allowing the wedding party to relax, ensuring parents are present, wowing guests with a unique and magical experience, and, most importantly, sparing families the post-event cleanup.

Jennifer is not only a seasoned event planner but also a dedicated educator. Her certifications and education include:

  • Graduated from UNCG with a Recreation Parks and Tourism Degree, with a double minor in Business and Psychology.
  • Graduated from UNCG with a Masters in Recreation Management in Spring 2020.
  • Certified Wedding Planner through the Beverly Clark Hospitality.
  • Certified Mixology and TIPS Certified through the Professional Bartending Institute in Greensboro.
  • Certified through the Alcohol Safe Serve Program.
  • Certified Professional Accredited Wedding Planner with the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC).
  • 1 of 52 Master Wedding Planners in the World through ABC.
  • Local Networking Co-Director of ABC Triad Chapter 2012-2016.
  • Current NC State Manager (since 2017) and Director of Members At Large for the Association of Bridal Consultants.
  • Chairman Royal for Sandals.
  • CPR & First Aid Certified.
  • Active Shooter Safety Trained.
  • Executive Board Member for the Triad Bridal Association and currently their writer for the “ask the expert column.”
  • Platinum Level Certified Sandals & Beaches Travel and Honeymoon Specialist.
  • Gold level Weddingmoon Specialist with Sandals & Beaches Resorts.
  • Recently certified through FAU for their Tourism and Hospitality Management Online Course.
  • Certified Wedding Planner through The Bridal Society.

Jennifer’s commitment to education extends to teaching juniors and seniors at UNCG Event Planning and Management, creating curriculums for future classes, and teaching event and wedding planning classes, a bridal boot camp, and continuing educational courses for vendors at Alamance Community College.

Beyond her certifications, Jennifer has actively contributed to the industry as a local, national, and international guest speaker at several conferences worldwide. She’s also a co-author of the Planners Unplugged Book Project.

At Knot Your Average Events, each event is treated as a unique canvas. From intimate gatherings to large-scale celebrations, Jennifer’s meticulous attention to detail and personal touches ensure that every event, from “I DO to I DID,” stands out. If you want your event to be talked about for years to come, entrust Knot Your Average Events to tie up all of your loose ends.

We’re “KNOT” Your Average Events

Transforming Your Vision into Reality

My journey into wedding planning and coordination was fueled by a simple yet profound mission: to ensure you and your family are guests at your own event. The inspiration behind this commitment stems from witnessing too many missed moments and unnecessary stress during weddings.

I’ve seen mothers and friends canceling hair and makeup appointments because setup took longer than anticipated. I’ve observed well-intentioned greeters arriving late, unsure of their roles, getting caught up in conversations, and neglecting their duties. Additionally, some venues lack onsite site managers throughout the entire event.

At Knot Your Average Events, we’ve taken note of these pitfalls, and we’re here to offer comprehensive solutions. From efficient setups to coordinating hair and makeup schedules, managing greeters, and even overseeing the cleanup, we’ve got it all covered.
