With over thirteen 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. Our portfolio of weddings expands from Idaho, Illinois, Florida to Virginia.
On your wedding day, we don't mind holding an umbrella for you while you get from point a to point b or feeding raisins to a crying toddler (only if their mom says it okay), or helping your flower girl get down the aisle. We will do everything we can to ensure that you and your families are truly guests at your own wedding.

"The little things that jess does behind the scenes"
"Speaking to Jess even for the first time, it was obvious she was incredibly professional, organized, and passionate about her clients and her company and just a really kind and down to earth person. We hired Jess for 2 months out coordination however she was honestly there for us throughout our 12+ months planning journey. If I had any questions I just shot Jess a quick email and she was always sure to respond right away – you honestly always feel like her only client - I don’t know how this lady does it all! Even though her company is based out of Williamsburg she provided wedding coordination for us readily in Richmond, VA. The little things (actually not so little!) that Jess does behind the scenes like check in which each of your vendors multiple times before your wedding, creating a detailed timeline (this thing was my sanity!), creating a wedding diagram, picking up decorations from your house, making sure you and your family get plates of food, having an emergency basket with raisins to keep your flower girl happy...those are just a few! Its all those little things that you don’t even think about that made us have the most PERFECT wedding day! " - Lauren, Wedding Co. Bride
"we were way over budget, but this was the best money we spent on our wedding!"
Jess is amazing!! I'd highly recommend hiring her asap. My husband and I were way over budget, but this was the best money we spent on our wedding!! We have no regrets, except that we should have hired Jess from the very beginning.
When I first met Jess I was seriously impressed with how organized she is. I had high expectations and she exceeded all of them! Not only is she super organized and knows the wedding industry inside and out she's just an awesome, fun, and enjoyable person to be around! Every time I told a vendor "I'm working with Jess Aiken..." their response was always "I love her or she is amazing." She has great relationships with vendors in the area and even struck us a few deals to save us $$. We are so grateful to have hired Jess! -Meghan
"finding jess and her company was a godsend"
"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." - Patty

Hey girl! I came to Williamsburg from the windy city of Chicago. There, I served as an assistant wedding planner to one of Chicago's premiere event companies.
Before I got settled into my Virginian life, I planned a few weddings for family and friends and soon after arriving here I landed a position as a lead wedding and event coordinator for Kingsmill Resort. Craving the deeper connection with brides I contacted Wedding Co. and Jess says "I was the perfect fit." <- her words not mine!
After two years of planning & executing weddings for the Wedding Co. Team, my husband got out of the Navy and we relocated back to Chicago. Jess couldn't let me go, so I have since stayed on as Wedding Co.'s Virtual Assistant. Now I'm handling all the day to day, back-end things for Jess and step in when Jess can't for all our Wedding Co. brides.
When i'm not planning or working a wedding you will find me spending time with my family (my fur baby, Maple and my human baby who is adorable, named Wyatt), cooking, or online shopping! I am Wedding Co.'s reality TV guru and I live for celebrity gossip!
Hey! I previously served as Director of Events for a large wedding venue in rustic Prince George County, Virginia. I have a diverse background in event planning and an intimate knowledge of the attention to detail needed to deliver on complex events of any size. I excel at working closely with my clients to create very personal and unique events.
Though i'm a Florida girl at heart, I have fallen in LOVE with Virginia after moving here four years ago with my husband, Clay and our two beautiful daughters, Logan and Caroline. I have traded the sandy shores of Florida for the trails of the Blue Ridge where me and my family can often be found hiking and camping (unless its football season, Go Noles)!
I assist on wedding day management packages and partial packages. I personally take on 10-12 weddings a year.
I can't wait to meet you!
Hey There! Weddings and Events have always been a passion of mine. I joined Wedding Co. in 2018 as an Assistant Wedding Planner. I assisted on as many weddings as I could. I also landed a dream job at an event venue locally where I got to serve as the venue coordinator. After a year-and-a-half on the team, I found out Jess was hiring another Lead Planner. The rest was history!
When I'm not working weddings, you will find me and my husband, Andy with our fur baby, Ethel out enjoying good food and local craft beers.
I assist on wedding day management packages and I personally take on 10-12 weddings a year.
I can't wait to meet you!
