Jessie has spent most of her life in Texas and she wouldn't have it any other way! She took an unconventional route through college, but wouldn't change a thing, because if she hadn't, she wouldn't have met her husband... and that's where her passion for weddings began!
Jessie and her hubby met in 2007 and got married in 2015. She planned her own wedding and throughly understood the need for a Wedding Coordinator as she thought about her wedding day, and making sure that she could be the guest of honor, and not working and worrying.
After that, she coordinated several friends weddings and from there, decided it was going to be a career path for her.
Jessie is new to our RKWE team, but not new to weddings! We absolutely love having as a part of our team as she brings a wealth of knowledge and years of experience to help our clients plan the wedding of their dreams.
When Jessie is not planning weddings, she is loving on her dogs, drinking wine and watching Netflix with my husband, or traveling!

Favorite wedding moment?
We hired Jessie for Wedding Coordination and she was absolutely wonderful to work with. She kept track of details that I hadn't even thought to consider and made sure that any gaps in our wedding prep were filled in. On the day of the wedding, our professional MC missed some things, and Jessie came to the rescue to fill in, going above and beyond to make sure our reception went seamlessly. If there were any other mishaps during the day- she made sure neither my husband or I had to worry about it. She is very professional and thoughtful. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for someone to help with their day.

Having Jessie help us plan our wedding was the best decision we made as we began to plan our big day. I look back now and think, I definitely could not have done this without her!
Jessie has so many amazing vendor recommendations for every need, from location to bakery, hair, flowers, you name it. She gets pricing, sets up the appointments, gets all the details and leaves the fun stuff (such as cake tasting) for the bride and groom. She also makes sure to keep you on track during the planning process so that you don’t fall behind or forget important details.
Not only did Jessie make our wedding planning feel like a breeze, having her there on our wedding day was literally the icing on the cake. We worried about nothing on our wedding day because Jessie was 3 steps ahead making sure every detail was perfect.
Thank you Jessie for being so amazing!
My (now) husband sought Jessie's info to coordinate our wedding after working with her at a separate friend's wedding, and I am beyond thrilled that he did!! Jessie did a phenomenal job to say the least. From our first consult to the big day, she was a pleasure to work with. She's very responsive, attentive, detail-oriented, patient, and the utmost professional (even towards one of our unruly, drunken guests). We received many compliments on how smoothly everything went, and she was always nearby to assist. If there was a problem, she took care of it without me knowing, and we were able to enjoy our wedding without distractions. We hired her as our Wedding Day Management Coordinator, and WOW, the depth of her planning to make our day perfect is remarkable. Would highly recommend!
