Jessica was more than a wedding planner
Upon meeting Jessica, it was apparent that she was resourceful–well connected to many vendors in the area, earnest and eager to dive in, and an overall reassuring presence. She helped us strategize logistics for the entire weekend, assisted us in building our own catering and bartending teams and coordinated with all of our vendors. She was always sincere, positive and ready to trouble shoot. Jessica was nothing short of helpful at every turn–bringing me a steamer for my dress when mine stopped working three days before our wedding. She managed an array of details on the day of our ceremony that I’m still not even aware of because she never burdened us with details. She was one part orchestra conductor, one part therapist, one part efficient project manager with a wealth of knowledge and creativity to make the day magical, all the while making it all seem effortless. We couldn’t have done it without you Jessica, thank you!!!!

One of the best investments we made towards our daughter’s wedding was hiring Jessica
Jessica was very professional and helped our daughter’s wedding run smoothly, from the rehearsal dinner the evening before to the Bride and Groom’s send off at the end of their special day. Her eye for detail and her flair for arranging a room shows the love she has for her job. She worked fantastically with all of our hired vendors, keeping them on the arranged time line, as well as handling the final payments and tips, which allowed my husband and I to enjoy each moment celebrating with family. A wedding event is comprised of many many details. Having a professional like Jessica who knows how to arrange all of the pieces into a beautiful picture, and is a joy to work with, is priceless.
