Mexican inspired gold & floral wedding with Cory & Jackie

We were so excited to work with Doris + Mason for their Mexican inspired gold & floral wedding in the ballroom of the gorgeous Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown Union Station. Embracing the culture of the clients we work with and making sure every detail is perfect is so important to us. Doris + Mason had their ceremony at the stunning St. Joan of Arc Church. This historic church in Indy is incredible both on the inside and out.

Guests were welcomed into the grand ballroom of Union Station by a mariachi band and tequila shots with limes that doubled as escort cards! It was so original and unique – and their guests loved it! Doris’ vision for the space came to life with a neutral color scheme, beautiful gold details and stunning florals created by Kelly Lenard of Intertwine. And can we please talk about that cake?! Gallery Pastry Shop knocked it out of the park with their stunning naked wedding cake! From the hint of blue and cascading flowers, to the glimmering bistro lighting and gorgeous crystal chandelier hanging above – it was such a beautiful focal point of the evening!

Thank you to Cory & Jackie for capturing all the gorgeous details of Doris + Mason’s beautiful wedding! Enjoy a little peek into their day – it was definitely one for the books!

Celebrating another year!

I‘m not quite sure how 2017 is already coming to an end, but boy was it a good one! There’s been a lot happening in the JDWC office this year and I’m excited to share a little recap of some fun changes, accomplishments and growth we’ve had!

1. WE HAD A BABY!

Our lives were instantly changed in January when my husband and I welcomed our first little one, William! It’s so true when people say they can’t remember what life was like before these little human beings enter our world. Life is so much sweeter, so much fun, and a whirlwind all at the same time! We are counting our blessings this year and are beyond thankful to have been chosen to be Will’s parents!

2. BRITTANY HAD ANOTHER BABY!

Just about 4 weeks after William was born, Brittany and her husband Derek welcomed their second little boy, Callum, in February! Baby Cal joined his big brother, Brecken (now 2), has the sweetest smile, and is a good mix of both of his parents!

3. THE JDWC TEAM GREW

Our newest Lead Coordinator, Kendra (you can meet her HERE), joined the #JDWCteam this year! Kendra has quickly become a great asset to our team and I know her couples will absolutely adore working with her!

4. WE COORDINATED OUR 100TH WEDDING

In June, we had the honor of coordinating our 100th JDWC wedding! How in the world can it be that we have now been a part of 100+ weddings?! I am so very grateful, every day, for such a supportive group of family, friends, clients and our team that make this dream of mine possible!

5. WE RECEIVED 2 INDUSTRY AWARDS

It is extremely humbling to be recognized for all the hard work we put into our clients’ wedding days, and are honored to have received a couple industry awards again this year!

6. I JOINED A MASTERMIND GROUP

I’ve always wanted to be a part of a Mastermind group, and I am so very thankful to my sweet friend, Emily Yost (Owner of Emily in Love), for asking me to start one with her earlier this year! There are 5 of us total and we have monthly calls to strategize, set goals and keep each other accountable. It’s been so uplifting to be a part of a group of like-minded creative business owners that cheer each other on and constantly encourage one another on a weekly basis!

7. WE MADE A BIG BUSINESS INVESTMENT

Okay, so we can’t quite spill the beans just yet, but we made a big business move late this fall and are SO excited to share the news with you in the coming months!! Be sure to keep an eye out this spring for a few changes coming to JDWC soon!

Jess

Meet our Owner, Jessica

This week on the blog, I’m sharing a little Q+A with yours truly! As you’ll read, I am the Owner and Lead Coordinator of JDWC. I am a wife and new mom (although I can’t believe our sweet little William will be one in less than a month already), a small business owner, lover of coffee, candles and a good home improvement project!

Keep reading to find out what I encourage every bride to do on their wedding day, what a rare weekend off during wedding season looks like for our family, and even my favorite places to shop!

Wishing you all a happy holiday season!

Xo,
Jess

Tell us a little bit about you: I’m a wife to Michael, and a new momma to William! Becoming a mom this year has quite possibly been the most incredible gift I have ever received. I am in awe of him every day and love watching this little person grow and learn new things! His latest tricks are reaching for “lights”, making Tigger the tiger bounce, saying “de-duh” for ducky, and waving one hand while saying “hot-hot-hot” at #allthethings!!

I started JDWC almost 6 years ago (c-r-a-z-y how time is flying!!) with the idea in mind to give more couples (and let’s be real, Mother of the Bride’s too) a stress-free wedding day! From day one we have chosen to focus solely on day of wedding coordination and have never looked back! Fun fact: My husband and I both own our own businesses – Mike in Commercial Real Estate and Development, and me in weddings of course! As two small business owners and new parents, it’s been quite the adventure already but we wouldn’t trade our story for anything!

What’s your favorite way to spend a Saturday when you’re not working a wedding? Weekends are definitely sacred at our house during wedding season when I’m not working a wedding! We love slow mornings to sleep in as much as our little one will allow (although 7:30am is sleeping in for us these days), working on home improvement projects and simply spending time together! During warmer months we love venturing out to the lake and enjoying time on the water.

What do you love most about working with brides and executing their wedding day? There are SO many things I love about what I do, but my most favorite part truly is seeing a bride’s vision come to life on the day of. As Day of Wedding Coordinators, our couples plan their own weddings and then we come in during those last few months to help pull everything together, tie up loose ends and ultimately execute everything for them on their wedding day! No two weddings are the same, just as no two couples are the same. There is no greater joy than to see your bride and groom able to fully take in the day without worry about how it’s all going to come together!

If you had one piece of advice for a bride on her wedding day, what would it be? Soak in every second of the day. Remind yourself to step back and take in little moments here and there. Remember your best friends laughing and reminiscing on the past as you’re all getting your hair and makeup done. Remember that moment you step into your dress. Remember your dad smiling (and quite possibly crying) in adoration as he walks you down the aisle. Remember your groom whispering into your ear during portraits. Remember how all your closest family and friends surround you both on the dance floor chanting for “one more song” at the end of the night. Most importantly, remember how loved and supported you are.

Tell us what your favorite wedding trend is right now: Suspended florals and draped greenery!

Your top 3 places to shop:  Target, The Loft, J. Crew Mercantile … okay and Amazon, too!

What’s your go-to coffee order? Iced coffee with a splash of creamer!
