Owner & WPIC Certified Wedding Planner
Originally from the Chicago area, Jessica came to Canada in 2009 to pursue graduate studies at the University of Guelph. While completing her studies, she met her future husband and relocated to live with him in the Hamilton area, where she has resided since.
Jessica holds a Bachelor's degree in Crop Sciences: Plant Biotechnology from the University of Illinois and a Master's degree in Food Safety & Quality Assurance from the University of Guelph. Those may not seem like your typical wedding planner credentials, but the hard work and commitment required to reach those goals are what translate into the effort and dedication she puts into your big day.
After her own wedding in October 2014 and helping her best friend as Matron of Honour in April 2015, Jessica realized her passion did not lie on the career path she had been traveling for three years. She had found a great enjoyment and true passion in making weddings happen. In September 2015, Jessica earned her certification with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada and shortly thereafter started her own company, The Happy Couple Wedding Planning.
Jessica spent much of the 2016 wedding season assisting other WPIC wedding planners with wedding day coordination.
