Jackie + Sam
Soon after I got engaged, I knew I wanted to hire a wedding planner so I could make sure the planning process was fun without being too stressful. I was actually in the wedding of a close friend who used Jackie Santos as her planner, and I remembered how gorgeous and amazing her wedding had been. After reaching out to my friend, she had nothing but positive things to say about Jackie so I hired her right away, and I’m so glad I did! I myself am a detail oriented person who had lots of my own opinions, and Jackie was so open to hearing my ideas and vision and helping me turn it all into a reality. She was incredibly organized. I was OBSESSED with the giant checklist and excel organizer she sent me early on in the process. She helped me focus on the fun of planning. While I was enjoying the creative parts of the process, shehandled a lot of the logistics like finding quality vendors, keeping in touch with them throughout the process and helping me stay on track with my budget and timing. The vendors she recommended were all amazing and everyone’s upbeat and positive attitudes on my wedding day truly helped me stay in my zen place. There are always things you might do differently when reflecting back on your wedding day, but one thing I definitely would NOT have changed was hiring Jackie Santos as my wedding planner. She truly helped create an amazing day that my husband and I will always remember!
