    Jess is the absolute BEST!

    Look no further than Dear Summer (Jess) for your wedding! My entire family agrees that she was the best money we spent on our entire event. We were so grateful for how attentive she was to everyone during the event, but also how professional she was in handling every detail. She truly made every little thing happen and we did not have to stress. We simply knew Jess had it under control and all could enjoy our day. Simply put, Jess is the best! She is affordable, accommodating, and just a kind human, which makes working with her fun and relaxed!

    Highly recommend!

    We cannot recommend strongly enough having Jess as part of your wedding planning/day of team. Leading up to the wedding, she was incredibly organized and responsive with her communication. On the day of, she familiarized herself with our venue and arranged it even more beautifully than we could have imagined. She was a source of calm and order, knowing where everyone needed to be and when. Jess is truly an amazing wedding planning professional and made our day more special and smooth than we could have ever hoped!

    A no-brainer!

    From my first conversation with Jess, it was a no-brainer that we had to hire her for day-of coordination. Her calming demeanor and knowledgeable approach is exactly what I was looking for and needed for our wedding day.

    Throughout the planning, Jess was always available for phone calls to help chat through any kinks, solidified a timeline and was there for moral support. She is such an encourager and provided great feedback for all of my many questions.

    Jess knows how to corral a restless crowd in an extremely polite way. She solidified a timeline into a flawless event. Jess brings a calming sense to the chaos and knows exactly how to lead when things need to get done. Our day wouldn’t have been as seamless without her coordination and sensibility to jump in wherever needed. We couldn’t have imagined our wedding day without Jess! She made it a stress-free experience where we could really be in the moment. We can’t recommend Jess and Dear Summer Events enough!

I have loved weddings since I was a child and I turned that love into a business. I have years and years of experience in the wedding and event field and bring that to what Dear Summer offers to make your day special and stress free! As a recent bride (Covid bride at that) I understand the stress, so it is our job to help take that away from you so you are able to just enjoy the moment.
