Please meet Jessie, one of our fabulous Lead Wedding Planners here at RKWE. Jessie has had her own planning company for the last seven years and we scooped her up as a full time planner and couldn't be more excited to have her on our RKWE team!
Jessie has spent most of her life in Texas and met her hubby in college. They were married in 2015 and during the wedding planning process, she throughly understood the need for a Wedding Planner, as she wanted to make sure that she and her hubby could be the guests of honor and not working and worrying all day. After planning a spectacular wedding, Jessie's friends started asking her to plan their weddings (a testament to her skills!) and that's when she decided that Wedding Planning was her passion, and decided to turn it into her career.
We absolutely love having Jessie as a part of our team, as she brings over seven years of planning and coordinating weddings, and a wealth of knowledge to help our clients plan the wedding of their dreams. Jessie has planned all types of weddings from themed weddings to traditional, same-sex weddings (love is love!), and country club to barn weddings. Jessie has also planned multi-day affairs for her couples, and loves to help her couples by guiding them through every step of the wedding planning process.
When Jessie is not planning weddings, she is loving on her dogs, drinking wine and watching Netflix with her husband, and traveling!
Remember, an experienced planner is one of the key investments you can make when bringing your wedding day to life. Trust us on this one—you want (and deserve) a helping hand on your wedding day. After all, this is going to be the happiest day of your life!

Favorite wedding moment?
I will never forget how helpful it was to have Jessie there during our wedding day. From the first phone call, I really liked Jessie. She is very professional and easy to talk to. She took care of everything the day of the wedding and made sure we were following the schedule. She got our guests gathered for toasts and the shoe game and everything. People say things will go wrong on your wedding day, and for me, I was feeling a bit dizzy by the end of night. Can I tell you how helpful it was to have a coordinator then? It was like having a fairy godmother. Everything ended up taken care of somehow. If anything else went wrong that day, I wouldn't know because she took care of it. I absolutely would recommend Jessie! Thank you so much for everything you did!
We hired Jessie 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 venue 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. WOW, the depth of her planning to make our day perfect is remarkable. Would highly recommend!
