Yorba Linda, CA
Nicole + Kyle
My wedding was just over two months ago. I think the reason it has taken me so long to sing Jackie's praises is that I am confident that there is nothing I can write that will live up to everything that Jackie was and will forever mean to me and my husband.
I am an event manager by trade. In fact - I am the Assistant Director of Event Planning at a luxury brand hotel. I handle events and conferences with thousands of attendees on a daily basis. And - I've been doing this for almost 10 years. There wasn't even a second that I thought I'd want to plan my wedding on my own. I knew I'd want and need the help. And thank goodness I had that foresight.
I was engaged on October 12, 2017. I hired Jackie on October 17, 2017. And thank goodness for that!! We ended up with a year of planning with Jackie - we got married on October 27, 2018.
The biggest compliment that I can give Jackie is one that was given to me over and over again. I had close friends, family, coworkers, distant relatives - you name it - all tell me independently that I looked so calm and relaxed the week of our wedding and on our wedding day. Each time I was told (which I honestly think had to be at least 30 times), my response was the same - "that's because we have Jackie". Jackie made the entire process stress-free. Was I never stressed or overwhelmed? No, certainly not. But any time I felt a glimmer of anxiety, I texted/called/emailed Jackie and she instantly addressed whatever was on my mind. She kept us on track - reminded us what was needed now, and what could wait. She told me to do things that I would have never remembered to do or even thought to do.
Even when things didn't go as planned (which happens ladies, no matter how much you try to prevent it) - Jackie fixed them without me even knowing a problem had happened. In one example - on our rehearsal day, our shuttle buses were delayed to the point where we'd be very late to our rehearsal at the venue. Instead of stressing me or my family out, Jackie calmly pulled me aside, explained the situation, and then told me she already had 7 uber vehicles on the way. Jackie didn't miss a beat, and we didn't miss our rehearsal.
Jackie and her sweet family will always be a part of our family. I'd get married to my husband again and again, but not without Jackie.
