Photography: Molly Connor Photography | Jessica Dum Wedding Coordination

Jessica was recommended to me by my photographer, who said that she would absolutely hire Jessica to coordinate her own wedding. Despite the strong recommendation, however, we were a little hesitant. What is a wedding coordinator anyway? We ended up going for it and it is one of the best wedding planning decisions we made.

Jessica is a total professional–responsive, punctual, and super sweet–and has invaluable insight. For the bride and her family, the wedding day is a unique occasion – ideally, a once-in-lifetime experience. Jessica, on the other hand, has been through countless wedding days and knows exactly what to expect. She is able to raise important questions beforehand that would never occur to most brides – and then she handles it.

You spend so much time and money planning your wedding – it is so, so important and wonderful to be able to really enjoy the day. Jessica lets that happen. I had no concerns whatsoever the day of my wedding and was able to really live in the moment without worrying about the place settings. the food, the band, or the flowers and so on. A lot of the vendors you speak with will act as if they will be handling certain aspects of the day, which may lead you to believe that a wedding coordinator is unnecessary. But it is invaluable to have someone (other than the bride) who knows exactly how everything is supposed to fit together and can make it happen. And Jessica is the perfect person to do that.
