Amazing event coordinator
Jessica Ireland worked with me and was absolutely amazing. The amount of effort and attention to detail that she provides is outstanding. Her motto is to “keep the client(s) in a happy bubble” throughout the process, and she works with everyone needed to ensure this happens. She is the epitome of professional, efficient, communicative, timely, resourceful, and stylish; perfect for every event.Sent on 02/19/2020

Best choice you will ever make!!!
When I was searching for a wedding planner I knew what i was looking for in them and what they could do for me and my wedding. After a number of disastrous meetings I finally met with Jessica and it was like fate. It was like it clicked in ever way possible and she knew EXACTLY what I was looking for and what I wanted to do.
I hired her for the "month of" to relieve a lot of the stress and pressure from myself of finalizing all the details; and let me tell you, she jumped right in head first and took over. Not only did she do everything she said she would, she honestly went ABOVE AND BEYOND what I expected of her. From finalizing all the details with my vendors, to coordination of my rehearsal & wedding, to decorating my venue; and to top it off, making sure the whole time she made sure me & my husband were set while getting ready for our big day.
If I never hired Jessica I honestly know I would have been stressed out to THE MAX in the weeks and days up to the wedding and the day of. Because I hired Jessica, I was able to live in the moment and not be the crazy bride on the day of. I was able to enjoy my time with the bridal party, and the boys were able to of course be the boys. If you are on the fence about hiring a planner, take the leap and just hire Jessica. She is 100% worth EVERY PENNY!!!Sent on 08/28/2020

Wedding on the Beach, Reception at the Cavalier on the Hill
Jessica was an amazing wedding coordinator. She made everything seemless for my big day. All I had to do was show up, and she handled everything else. Hiring Jessica was by far the best investment I made for my wedding day. Her services were extremely reasonably priced, and the value added for my wedding was honestly priceless. I would highly recommend her services for anyone looking to invest in a wedding coordinator!Sent on 02/17/2020
