"Have an awesome day and if you don't, try again Tomorrow!"
IYD Owner & Lead Planner
"Hi there sweetie! I am the owner and dream chaser behind It's Your Day Weddings & Events. I love meeting new people and traveling to places I've never been. I'm a problem solver at heart, a list-maker who triple checks everything, in addition to a project manager extraordinaire. I've been planning and coordinating weddings since 2009 and I never imagined how much my business would grow. If you are a bride who hates stress, loves to stare at perfect Instagram photos of flowers and cake, dares to sing car karaoke while no one is looking, considers themselves a Snapchat enthusiast, and thinks furry animals can also count as children....and....well, obviously has a sense of humor..... then this could be the start of something beautiful.
*At this time, I'm booking for 2018 weddings and events, however my awesome team lead Anna (learn about Anna below) is available for a few more dates in 2017. Contact us so we can hear more about your big day!"

IYD Team Lead, Day-Of Coordinator
"It started off with watching TLC's Cake Boss & Say Yes to the Dress. I worked at a local wedding venue in high school to make extra money babysitting before attending James Madison University which is when I started to see how much fun and excitement happen at weddings. I declared my major in Hospitality Management and the summer prior to my Junior year, I started to work as an intern on the IYD team and just completed my second wedding season. I'm graduating from JMU in May 2017 and I can't wait to share my passion for weddings and details with amazing brides like Y-O-U. If you're down to earth, love to have fun, and are excited about your wedding day, I have some availability for 2017 wedding dates and would love to chat more about your big day. Contact us today!"
“AND REMEMBER THAT, IN A WORLD OF ORDINARY MORTALS, YOU ARE A WONDER WOMAN.”
IYD Team Lead & Assistant
"I was a bridesmaid in a wedding Jessica coordinated in March 2015. After watching her work a very long and challenging day, I walked up and asked if she needed anything. Jessica (in true Jessica fashion) told me to go have fun and be a bridesmaid and that she couldn't believe I'd be so kind and thoughtful to ask since she was working and I was a wedding guest. The next week she called me and asked me to join her team and I am so glad that I said yes; each wedding adds a new adventure, skill, and flavor of cupcake! You'll find me behind the scenes handling the details and setup working alongside Jessica and helping manage our team of interns. I'll be starting my 3rd year on the IYD Team and I'm so excited to work with each of you to ensure a great wedding day."
