I wish I had an option to score Jayme a 10 out of 5! Besides the responsibilities for the wedding day, Jayme was able to suggest vendors and rain options, table set-up for the reception, and somehow was everywhere we needed her, when we needed her, and before we knew we needed her there! She made everything flow smoothly. This insured our guests were well cared for, the vendors knew who to call on, and my daughter & I became even closer despite what is typically a stressful day. I'd never plan a wedding or event without Jayme!
For a "day-of coordinator," Jayme did a tremendous amount of work leading up to the wedding (and on the day of) to make our wedding such an enjoyable experience- both for us and our guests. She was extremely involved and patient throughout the planning process, and we appreciated her understanding of all of our detailed plans. She was always patient and understanding and never protested when we expressed another detailed request for the big day. The day was magical, and we are so grateful Jayme were there to ensure it went smoothly from start until finish. The food was delicious, the décor was beautiful, and the timeline ran as planned. Jayme was very easy to work with and such a down-to-earth person to be around. She was quick to respond and kept track of all of the necessary details for the day. My parents have told me that they, too, really liked working with Jayme for this wedding. She was one of our favorite vendors for the day, and I highly recommend hiring her for wedding coordinating.
Jayme was invaluable in helping the wedding flow smoothly. Beforehand, she gave me space to figure out my theme, was helpful in suggesting budget friendly vendors and gave me ideas of how to work within my budget. If I had a question, she would email within 24 hours if not call or meet with me. What's makes Jayme even more special is that she was able to pull off an amazing wedding during the downpours and wind of Hurricane Matthew (Oct 2016). During the week leading up to the wedding she was in the details of alternate plans for the reception, helping with tent logistics and was extremely positive. The day of the wedding flowed as well as was humanly possible with such flooding and power outages around the Triangle. We could not have done it without Jayme.

Jayme was amazing! She answered all my emails super quick and didn't seem bothered that I asked 500 questions. She made my wedding day go as smooth as possible (even with unexpected winds) and made sure my husband and I were fed and happy!

We loved having Jayme as our wedding coordinator! Even though we only hired her for basic help day-of, she was happy to meet with us several times before the wedding and help with schedule, logistics, and coordinating with vendors. With her catering background, she was great at helping us anticipate needs we wouldn't have thought of, like how much ice we needed and how to set up the bar.
The week before the wedding, Jayme was available and helpful for last-minute questions, and at the reception she made sure everything went smoothly, taking care of details, and helping with all the cleanup. She was always available and checked in occasionally but stayed unobtrusive. She saw exactly where we needed her and stepped up. Our wedding would not have been as easy and gone so well without Jayme's help!

We were so pleased with Jayme and all that she did to make our wedding day a success. Her deliberate planning for all the intricacies of the day made us and our families feel at ease and able to enjoy the important parts of the day. Her knowledge of the industry was invaluable every step of the way. She had a great sense of humor and was personable while also remaining professional at all times. It was very apparent that she is used to the working in the crazy fun chaos of a wedding environment because she remained on top of things through the entire day as well as in the weeks leading up to our day. Working a full time job and a planning your wedding leads to inevitably looking over details and Jayme was always there to remember those overlooked items. Her communication was perfect as she kept me informed without overwhelming me. She even rescued our exit as the planned horse and carriage didn't arrive. We exited right into Jayme's car! I reflect on the day with nothing but happiness and I can thank Jayme for a huge part of that. Highly recommend!

"Hiring Jayme was the single best decision I made for our wedding. As I went through the planning process, I really enjoyed making special decorations and thinking of ways to make our wedding unique to us - but about halfway through I realized that I did not want to spend the day of our wedding setting all that up, or make my family break it all down at the end of the night. I was really worried about how it would all come together, but Jayme instantly took that stress away, and kept me organized and on track.
I was so impressed with what a great job she did - from her super quick responses to all of my emails, to the fact that she was actually keeping track of what I was brainstorming and making sure that I had everything together, to the day of the wedding where she worked tirelessly before to get everything set up the way I had envisioned (and it looked amazing!). During the event, she was somehow everywhere, keeping things running smoothly, and handling last minute crises (like several uninvited guests showing up) without missing a beat. She did everything we asked for and more. "
Our wedding was so awesome - my husband and I were able to fully enjoy a beautiful day without a moment of stress or worry, and it was in large part thanks to Jayme working so hard behind the scenes to make everything perfect! She is amazing!

"We are so thankful to have had you on our special day! I cannot imagine what it would have been like if you weren't there with us. You did so much behind the scenes to ensure our day ran seamlessly! (Especially with the hurricane hiccup) It was the funnest day of our lives and it is all thanks to you! I virtually had no stress on my wedding day and was able to soak up every moment. I hope we can use you for ever event we have!"

"Jayme was the wedding coordinator at my daughter’s wedding and she is amazing! Her presence really helped everything to run smoothly and the wedding day was truly magical :) She is super organized and really helped us get going on the planning. (FYI if you are planning a wedding/event there are MANY things you can take care of early in the game :) In addition to that she works with you to cover ALL the details. When the day of the wedding arrived everything came together like a well oiled machine. If there were any incidents my daughter and I were completely unaware of them. Jayme handled it all. She is always pleasant and calm and was a complete pleasure to work with! I highly recommend her.”

"Planning a wedding doesn’t have to be stressful – it can actually be very pleasant if you have the right team. I feel so lucky that Jayme was on our team when my husband and I got married in August of 2015.
I was a little naïve to think my husband and I could plan our wedding 100% on our own. I’m not saying that planning a wedding on your own is impossible, most organized couples will do a decent job with minor hiccups. But the reality of planning a wedding is that you can’t possibly anticipate all of the logistics and crucial details that are involved. It is mind-boggling! That is why having Jayme was so instrumental. She brought up key questions and provided helpful solutions at every turn.
During the planning process we looked forward to our meetings with Jayme for a lot of reasons. She is fun to shoot the breeze with and yet she is also very professional, organized, concise, and practical. Jayme has a casual confidence that put us at ease. Her energy is positive and there is something very comforting about her presence. Working with Jayme made me feel like I was working with a dear friend.
Although we hired Jayme to organize the catering for our reception we ended up turning to her for countless wedding questions, planning, advice, and troubleshooting. It got to the point as we approached the wedding that I only trusted Jayme with our wedding details. I felt at ease knowing she had everything under control. During panicky moments Jayme was there to talk me through them. She was always quick to respond to my texts, phone calls, and emails. I knew she was juggling many weddings and events (not to mention a farm and a wonderful family) at one time and yet she always made me a priority.
My husband and I had such an incredible wedding day and it is thanks to the hard work, attention to detail, and impeccable execution that Jayme provided. We are forever grateful!"
"Jayme is very professional, yet makes you feel very comfortable and anticipates all your needs. She is extremely organized and detailed in her planning and was extremely quick to return any information I required.
My family and I were totally able to enjoy the wedding day, knowing that Jayme had every thing covered! She really gives personal attention! She made sure everything looked right for the bride and groom, and even suggested a few money saving ideas, which I truly appreciated. Cannot say enough good things about Jayme and her excellent service!"
