Wonderful Day of Coordinator

Jess was an amazing day of wedding coordinator! She went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of on the wedding day so that my now husband and I could focus on simply enjoying the day! She even assisted us with ordering flowers for our centerpieces and setting them up! She is also very affordable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her to any up coming bride and groom!
Thanks again Jess!

Perfectly Executed

In the beginning, I only wanted Jess to be my day of coordinator but my mom talked me into the partial planning. Let me tell you... I was so relieved I was convinced to do so. You never realize how much actually goes into wedding planning. Jess alleviated all of my stress and she kept me on track over the 10 months of planning. We'd hop on planning calls and she would ask how I was and I would just have this deer in the headlights look on my face that screamed "NO!" lol By the end of the call, she'd follow up and ask the same question and I would feel so much better. This ain't her first rodeo... clearly... so I was so blessed to have her help. She was so on top of it. Even the day of, I wasn't asked a bunch of questions of where things go, etc.. It was just handled and executed beautifully! Thanks Jess!!!

Absolutely Amazing!

We loved working with Jess for our very small October wedding this past year. She is very responsive, super flexible and is on top of everything. Our whole planning experience and wedding day went beautifully because of Jess.
We loved our wedding day and were so happy with the service Jess was able to provide. She made sure we were on top of payments, detials and booking. She helped out exactly where we needed her and helped our vision of our day come to life. She is very laid back and never seems stressed even during very busy wedding season.
I am very happy with the quality of work we got and to be able to have someone take over for us. She really did make the wedding process and day a breeze!
