Joanne (Jo) Gartin is gorgeous. She’s successful. She’s the working mother of two. And she may have lost her husband to none other than Jennifer Aniston. Here’s a look at the Australian-born event planner to the stars, divorced less than a month from husband of nine years Chris Gartin who is reportedly seeing her long-time friend Jennifer Aniston. By all accounts, she has an amazing flair for throwing elegant events. Following are some stats, and a video of her offering tips for making nuptials a dream come true:
–She is a working mom with two children, Sydney and Flynn.
–Her roster of clients for her business, Love, Luck and Angels, is impressive. She’s planned special occasions / weddings for Tori Spelling, Brooke Shields, Kate Walsh and The Bachelor’s Jason Mesnick.
–She decided to begin her own business when she realized she had a knack for wedding planning after planning her own wedding to Chris Gartin in 2001.
–She and her ex-husband belonged to the exclusive inner circle of Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Aniston for more than 10 years.
–She is an author, with a book called Jo Gartin Weddings: An Inspiring Guide for the Stylish Bride. It has a rating of 4-1/2 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
–Twitter doesn’t seem to be her thing. Her Twitter page only has one Tweet, back from late 2009.
–Watch her interview on Marriage TV discussing how to work wedding planning magic.
So if you live in the Los Angeles area and are planning an event, I think you’ve found your gal. Although my guess is with her expertise and celebrity cache, she doesn’t come cheap.
