Meet Jessica With Kindred Spirits Planning & Design
Hi all, I am Jessica from Kindred Spirits!
I am a mother of four (yes four) amazing boys and have been married to my amazing husband for 11 years now. My family is really how this company started and I am so thankful every day to have their support around me.
I was in management for six years before becoming a stay at home mom, shortly before our third son was born. After creating a community driven parent event, I fell in love with planning and design. After talking to my mother quite extensively about the possibilities, we decided that I would not only go to school to receive a degree in Hospitality management and Special Event Management, but that together we would start this company! We have never looked back and are so happy to say that 2018 proves to be our best year yet!
What made you become a coordinator?
Really the short and sweet answer to this question is that the love that I have from my family, my children and my community helped me realize my passion for planning.
It all started with a nonprofit parent event I created in my community shortly after becoming a stay at home mom and having our third son. I had never done anything like it before and fell completely in love. I decided to start going to school and we created the company. After four years I can say it is really the best decision I have ever made! I love my job and I love the couples that I get to help every day.
What is your favorite part of the wedding?
This is such a hard question, because there is really no bad part to such a beautiful day. However, if I had to just choose one, I think it would be the mother/son dance and their father/daughter dance. I absolutely love to see the connection between the parents and their children on one of the biggest days of their lives. I have been known to tear up a time or two, or just smile and laugh as they do something amazing and fun!
What is your best tip for our couples?
This is your day.
Follow your gut, enjoy the process together and most importantly relax and enjoy this amazing time.
Weddings are no longer about traditions, which is an amazing thing! It is all about you as a couple and how you choose to enjoy your big day!
What are you most excited about for 2018!?
2018 is a really big year for our company! We are expanding, re-branding and really excited about all the couples we will be helping this year!!
