“Starting out with a wedding planner who I thought was my friend and had my best interest at hand, Turned into a nightmare. Searching for someone that I can trust was like searching for a needle in a hay stack.  Doing research from another state is no fun at all! I came across Jessie Goodyear and had many of questions. The question I had she answered with confidence. If she didn't know the answer, she found out for me, being worry bug or stress monkey about everything. But Jessie stayed in contact with me though out the months to re-insure me that what I was doing was good. Down to my table setting to "Why am I getting married again?" :-) As my wedding grew into a perfect day my friendship from afar grew as well. Coming from California, having family and friend come to Mississippi was hard as it is. The communication was great! I guess spending months talking to me she knew that as soon as I got to Mississippi that my stress levels was going to be on high. She knew anything that would happen I would break.  Where I couldn't pick up my friends could have and they did. Both Jessie and my friends knowing how I like things done, a perfectionist that I am. They were able to solve the problem/ problems without me not knowing, was great! My day was what I picture it to be and even more. Love of family, love of friends and a Great and Wonderful Wedding planner to put what I dreamed of to make it a reality was all I asked for in the end. I give special thanks to Jessie Goodyear for everything and for making love from afar a reality!”

From our heart to yours, with great gratitude

Jessie was a true life saver. I did not understand the importance of working with a wedding planner until I attempted to do it on my own. Alone I was clueless but once I met Jessie that all changed. She made sure that every detail of my wedding was executed as planned. My day would not have been a dream come true without her.
