wedding day management - up to 90 days out

If you have most of the planning stuff done on your own, but you need someone to assist you on the day of to make sure all your hard work goes off smoothly and effortlessly...

you're in the right place.

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.

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. 

You might be thinking "this all sounds great, but how do you actually make a wedding process stress-free?"

So glad you asked.

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.

" this was the best money we spent on our wedding!

I hired Jess for the two month coordination package. I had planned my whole wedding from the beginning and I didn't know I needed a wedding planner at first, but I was wrong. Jess did everything from, communicating with vendors, creating a very detailed and thorough timeline, helped with our seating chart, setting up and breaking down the venue site, and running the whole show the day of the wedding. There is also a TON of small things we did not think of and Jess was on top of it all. She worked very hard to ensure the whole day went smoothly. She even went out of her way to go pick up our dog so that we could take photos after the ceremony. She was constantly checking on us to make sure we were doing ok. She went above and beyond for us prior to and day of on our wedding!

"I was never worried or stressed leading up to the big day.

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! She has a very positive attitude about everything and makes you feel so special day of your wedding. I had complete trust in Jess to get the job done and I was never worried or stressed leading up to the big day. 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!

"they had all the inside scoop on every aspect of planning

Jess was AMAZING throughout the whole wedding planning process! I am a full time student that doesn't live in the area, so it was so wonderful to have Jess on our wedding team. She had all the inside scoop on every aspect of planning and was on top of everything. Having her expert help made wedding planning way less stressful. Jess and her team were also so wonderful on the day of the wedding, and made sure everything ran smoothly (it was such a beautiful and perfect day!). Wedding Co also helped plan other events for our wedding weekend (a family dinner, welcome party, and departure brunch). I literally don't know how Jess does it all but she is truly incredible, and we were so lucky to have her with us every step of the way!! :)
