With over 15 years of industry experience of planning Virginia weddings and submerging ourselves in every avenue of the wedding industry, we have mastered the art of planning a Williamsburg, Virginia wedding with over 450 in our portfolio.
Allow us to design the perfect wedding that celebrates the two of you in your own unique way.
Here's the thing...in your Google searches I'm sure you've found a LOT of Williamsburg wedding planners, but, can any of them boast over 15 years of experience with a team of over ten people? This experience coupled with the fact that we work at the same venues over and over enables us to tackle any sort of issue that comes up before and on wedding day. We truly are prepped for anything because we've seen everything.
Because of this, in the Williamsburg wedding world we are considered the premiere wedding planner.
The Wedding Company of Williamsburg made my daughter’s wedding the perfect day! Hiring a wedding coordinator was absolutely one of the best decisions that we made when planning my daughter’s wedding and finding Jess and her company was a Godsend. From beginning to end, she took meticulous care of each and every detail. Jess’s passion for weddings combined with her organization and attention to detail made my daughter’s wedding, one of the best days of my life. I was able to thoroughly enjoy the entire day and not worry about details. Having Jess at the helm enabled us to be carefree as we visited with all of our guests and danced the night away. I highly recommend Jess Aiken and The Wedding Company of Williamsburg to everyone planning a wedding."
Jess, owner of the Wedding Co of Williamsburg, is not only creative, collaborative, caring, and hardworking — but she’s the best. My cousin, who is from LA, and had the most fabulous wedding, noted she was the best planner she’s ever seen. That says something.
I went to Jess with a specific vision and we worked collaboratively to exceed it! I don’t know what I would have done without her. Jess tailors the experience to each bride and pours her heart into every detail and aspect of your wedding. When she says she will cry at your wedding and you will become friends. She means it."
My now husband and I were living far from Williamsburg, both working busy jobs, and decided early on that we'd want help. Jess knows so much about weddings in general and specifically Williamsburg-area vendors, and even though I am an organized person, there is no way I could have kept track of everything without her and kept my sanity.
She is incredibly responsive, beyond friendly, and finds a great balance between letting you run with your own vision and adding in her own suggestions based on her experience.
I have told every friend of mine that when they get married they should do everything they can to save the money for a planner because our experience with Jess was truly invaluable."
First, let's setup a wedding consultation to discuss your wedding and learn more about how we can serve you .
When you decide to book we will send a contract services questionnaire. You'll fill that out and we then create the wedding contract and invoice for you for 50% of your wedding planning package.
You'll get access to our customer relationship management software, Aisle Planner, from the day you sign the wedding contract .
Once all the bookkeeping is done, you'll be introduced to your planner via email and the next steps will be provided.
You will be given a design questionnaire immediately following the signing of your contract. Once you fill that out and submit your Pinterest inspiration, we will get the full design underway. It takes about 3 -4 weeks to complete the design and budget process.
Jess will handle all vendor recommendations, all bookings, contract review, and keeps track of payments and payment reminders for the vendors involved in the design process.
Jess will work with you and your design vendors to ensure that your in-person meetings are setup appropriately throughout the planning process
We will provide you with a full design plan in tandem with a full budget breakdown. We show you how to achieve the budget you've set forth for the vision you want to have.
Jess will setup a time to meet at your wedding venue to see your selections for linens, china/glassware/silverware, and your florals all in the room so you can get the full vision and confirm your choices
Jess will ensure that all communication is handled with your design team and ensure that production goes off without a hitch. These times will be communicated with your day of planner or team member from our team, if you hire us for day of planning as well.
Our Design Package is perfect for the couple who is overwhelmed by how to pull their full color palette and details together. We take your Pinterest dreams and show you how to make them a reality within your budget and your venues rules and regulations.

For all packages, we provide the couple with their planner and their contact information, immediately following the booking process with Wedding Co.
