We wish Jessica could plan our entire lives

As one guest who saw Jessica in action on our wedding day said, "I would let her plan any aspect of my life." We couldn't agree more. Jessica was a complete partner and visionary for nearly a year as we planned our estate wedding with her, respecting our time as working adults while ensuring we were completely satisfied with every aspect of our special day. She elevated our wedding in ways we never could have imagined, incorporating both our ideas and mixing in her own, like making sure we had fresh almond croissants as a late night snack because she gleaned from the bride's Instagram how much we loved that specific treat. Jessica simply does it all: we were worried about wedding rain but thanks to her partnership with a local meteorologist we were able to perfectly navigate the storm clouds and ensure our ceremony and reception went off without a single guest getting rained on. She also ensured all 150 guests arrived on time to an extremely remote area in rural Virginia, coordinating with several bus drivers to pick up everyone from a variety of hotels and airbnbs around the region. Dozens of our guests told us that ours was the classiest, most elegant and most fun wedding they had ever attended, and we owe Jessica so much of the credit. Our only regret with our wedding weekend was not enlisting Jessica to help plan our other events, such as our rehearsal dinner. We simply loved every minute working with Jessica and hope we can convince her to plan more special events in our future.

Warm and brilliant!

I had the great fortune of connecting with Jessica for a one-on-one mentor session last fall. Throughout our conversation she was so warm and supportive that it felt like catching up with an old friend. Tapping into her years of experience and deep understanding of the luxury market, she shared a wealth of very specific and actionable advice that I’m eager to apply to my own wedding business. Her team members were also so incredibly responsive, kind and helpful. Jessica is an open book, a true professional, and a genuine supporter of everyone forging their own path in the event industry.

The BEST Wedding Planner & Team

My dream lux wedding came to life with the team at JAE! We honestly did not want it to end. If you're planning a wedding - JAE is the way to go and 100% worth the investment. The communication, attention to detail, presenting to us the vision and design we had in our heads to a look-book was beyond. Everyone was on top of it. I am very organized person and this team was my favorite for how well they kept every contract, vendor, POC's in order. Every guest was blown away as well as us! The whole JAE team feels like part of our family now!
