Searching for a wedding planner to put all the pieces together?

You're in the right place.

Competing at the highest level is not about winning. Its about preparation, courage, understanding and nurturing your people and heart. Winning is the result.

- Joe Torre

Logistics and details are my jam.

Hi, I'm Jessica.

I'm a wife, mom, former Olympian and lover of all things weddings. ! love color, delicate details, being outside or under a tent (though we always prepare multiple weather backups because Mother Nature makes her own plans), destinations near and far, flowers and candles (they make everything more romantic), and clients who trust us to do everything to make their wedding day remarkable.

Wedding Planning

Working With Shine

What it's like

Our approach to planning is high touch, attentive, down to earth, and collaborative. We work closely with couples to ensure their weddings reflect their individual and shared values, tastes, and senses of style. On the day, we want everyone to feel it could not be anyone else’s celebration other than the bride and groom’s. Luxury means different things to different people: We promise first-class service and a world-class event; outstanding design; and a unique, magical experience.

Your job is to give me your dreams and trust me. My job is to create a wedding day that exceeds everything you ever dreamed of.


"I never lifted a finger or worried over one thing while in Scottsdale."

"A full-time planner of this quality is money well spent. With every additional vendor needed, Shine Events was able to find superb vendors and save us considerable money compared to prices we could get ourselves. Jessica was always 10 steps ahead of us and nudged us along when we ourselves stalled.  There is nothing negative I can say and not enough words to express our extreme satisfaction with Shine Events. "

"She will talk to you when she’s busy doing family things if that’s the time you need her help."

"I’m sad that my wedding is over not only because of how amazing it was but also because it means I don’t get to talk to Jessica everyday. When looking for a wedding planner It is important to look at pictures etc of what they’ve done but it’s even more important to get to know them. I can’t imagine planning an out of state wedding with a wedding planner with a personality other than Jessica’s. She is responsive, organized, and knowledgeable of the industry but she’s also real. "

"Saying she made our dream wedding come to life would be an understatement. "

"We really wanted our wedding to be a once in a lifetime experience for not only ourselves but our guests as well and she blew it out of the water!! Our wedding had a million moving parts (to say the least) - we got married out at the base of Superstition Mountains, where there is no running water, electricity or cell service. She never once seemed stressed and always carried herself with grace and a smile on her face.  I don’t think there’s another planner out there who could have pulled this off."
