Gavin and I had been engaged for over a year before we decided to hire Jessica as our day of wedding coordinator. Our wedding was about six months away at that time, we had the majority of the planning done. Our ceremony and reception were held at a house we rented in the Sandia Heights Neighborhood in Albuquerque NM. We purposefully had a long engagement so that we had time to plan the wedding ourselves and to prevent ourselves from stressing. After attending several weddings prior to ours, we often saw the bride or the groom being bombarded by questions about caterers when to serve the cake, where should the DJ setup, etc. We quickly realized that we didn't want to be responsible for those decisions the day off and decided to hire someone who would serve as the day of coordinator. ? We wanted to thoroughly enjoy our wedding day we had spent so much time planning, we found the perfect person who could execute the day of coordination, and that was Jessica. Jessica and I were high school friends, per Facebook I was aware she had just begun a wedding planning business. I quickly contacted her and we meet to discuss the details that go along with a day of coordination. Jessica was just as bright and exuberant as I remember and she also possesses a poised professionalism that made me confident in my decision to hire her. Prior to the wedding Jessica and I met several times to develop a plan and schedule. This was all a huge relief to both Gavin and me, knowing someone would be there the day of to resolve anything that might come up. We had also recruited Jessica to facilitate the rehearsal, we had a live piano player performing special songs as we walked down the aisle. Jessica quickly and effortlessly took charge of the rehearsal. The first run of the rehearsal went so smoothly that we didn't feel the need to practice any further. Needless to say, our wedding ran even more efficiently. Guests were shuttled to the property as there was limited parking on the narrow and tight roads in the Sandia's. Jessica worked closely with the chauffeur to ensure that guests were being transported safely and in a timely manner. While guests were being shuttled, Jessica was constantly checking in on the wedding party to make sure we had everything we need as well as giving us a countdown to show time. The ceremony was short and sweet. As the wedding party was taking pictures and the guests were listening to the piano player and having cocktails Jessica was working with the wait staff to prepare for the dinner service. We should also mention that Jessica picked up the food and deserts so that we or anyone in the wedding wouldn't have to worry about leaving the property. Prior to dinner being served Jessica announced that Gavin and I would be having our first dance, after that the wedding party would get their food and then guests were welcome to the buffet style set up. The wait staff and Jessica executed dinner perfectly. While guests were dining, Jessica was directing the live band where to set up. All the while Jessica continued to check in on Gavin and me. Following dinner were the special dances, which we had to push back a touch to allow our photographer a little extra time with Gavin and I so we could take advantage of the beautiful sunset, this also meant Gavin and I needed a little extra time to quickly eat before we proceeded to the next set of special dances. Jessica quickly adjusted the schedule and no one was the wiser of the change. The special dances went perfectly and we moved on to open dancing, speeches, the garter and bouquet tosses. Jessica adapted to every little situation thrown her way and needed little to no guidance at all. As Gavin and I mingled with friends and family everyone complimented what a great job Jessica was doing. We honestly and firmly believe hiring Jessica was the best investment we made. She was the last key piece in making our wedding just as perfect as we had envisioned. We cannot thank Jessica enough for the service she provided and we wish her luck with all her future wedding planning endeavors.

Let me begin by saying Phil and I were engaged for well over two years and planning for just as long before we hired Jessica. I’m a fairly organized woman in my work life, but as a mom to a toddler with a fiancé deployed things can gets disorganized to say the least. And what are we more likely to do in this current mainstream-media-era… Facebook. We Facebook our wedding planning issues for our friends and family to see because we want them to know that 1.) We’re planning a highly elaborate, Pinterest-inspired, Etsy-themed wedding and 2.) We are successfully doing it all by ourselves while playing Super Mom and Skype Wife, and finally 3.) We want everyone to be in awe of our accomplishments. Well, I ranted in the former medium and a long ago friend from high school and current Facebook friend, Jessica, came to my rescue! She explained to me about how she was starting a new venture in wedding planning and that she would be happy to help me at an extremely affordable rate compared to other New Mexico wedding planners and companies. Trust me, I did the research and most companies here in Albuquerque charge a ridiculous amount to plan your wedding. Not to mention, they’re less hands-on, and you’re probably conducting your business and fighting for your time with ten or twenty other brides all at once. Jessica came into our wedding planning right in the middle, or at least I thought it was the middle. Turned out, it was probably the beginning with as much as I had her helping me with and taking on. Jessica became my voice in so many meetings and situations where at times I felt as though I lost mine with vendors. She became a close friend, a food allergy buddy, and overall a wonderful wedding planner. Most men aren’t interested in the nitty-gritty details like venue look and feel, table placements, lights, flowers, cake designs, etc., but Jessica became this awesome interactive soundboard, if you will. She did endless research for me to find the best deals on flowers, a string quartet, and even bakeries and cake shops that would suit our intense dietary needs for dairy-free and gluten-free. We had an elaborate ceiling display of string lights that involved a third party company, lots of contracts, some one-off meetings, and plenty of phone calls and emails. That detail alone would have absolutely not happened without Jessica leading the project and helping engineer the process and design with the contractor, and the communication between contractor and vendor. We also had a string quartet (as a surprise to my husband) to only play as I walked down the aisle. It was an elaborate job to take on because the goal was to not have my fiancé see the quartet until him and our Pastor walked towards the alter. Jessica made sure that all the elements of surprise were implemented to the fullest and also made sure to keep our wedding on time as close as possible as to not get overcharged by the music vendor. She even went as far as to negotiate on our behalf when an issue arose about running 15 minutes behind and the vendor tried to make us pay an insane amount for those 15 minutes. Lastly, we had a surprise Groom’s cake for my husband to be displayed at our rehearsal dinner. Jessica was kind enough to go pick up the cake across town and make sure everything was set up in time before we got there. It was AMAZING and, by far, my husband’s favorite memory of that night! Jessica made sure that everything was orchestrated perfectly the day-of and she stayed the whole night with us to make sure we wouldn’t have any problems that we’d have to take care of ourselves (she even made sure we ate!). As you’ve read, Jessica was our savior in more instances than one. She coordinated so many intricate details and set-up a variety of meetings without any assistance. She’s also extremely organized, so it was really helpful when she pulled out her little notebook with all of our plans every time I forgot a step. We are so incredibly grateful for Jessica’s services, friendship and just overall demeanor, that I would recommend her to absolutely anyone planning a wedding—at any stage! ? -Morgan Overton and Phillip Levison
