owner and Principal Event Planner
I'm Jessica-- Chicago born, Idaho raised. I have 2 young kids, 2 big dogs and a husband that is always weirdly chill and quiet, the perfect match to my...not so quiet.
My calm, collected way of handling things, need for intense organization and 'anything-it-takes' attitude serve me well both in my personal life and while planning events. I LIVE for the brief moment before a client and their loved one walk down the aisle and they pause to take it all in for one anticipatory, nervous second. To me, it sums up everything.
In my downtime, I love to read, ski, travel, re-organize my house and stare at TikTok mindlessly. I also am an adjunct communication professor at area universities and can usually be found buying new plants for my giant collection.
Reagan Van Gelder
Owner and principal event coordinator
I’m Reagan, financial analyst in the investment industry half the time, event planner half the time. Loud mouth full time (in a good way). My husband and I own 3 enormous dogs that are actually teddy bears. My nickname is The Warden and I earn it. In my spare time, I love to read, hunt and be outdoors, boat, do DIY projects around my home and lay on my couch not talking to anyone.
I live for details, and seeing all the pieces of a plan come together. I take immense pride in the work I do, and want every event to reflect that. I have a degree in public relations and eloped in Vegas at midnight. That should tell you pretty much everything you need to know-- I’m not a huge fan of about me’s, but love to get to know people!

Jessica was absolutely AMAZING! From our very first interaction with Jessica, we felt at ease and supported in our wedding planning process. We were planning our Coeur d' Alene, ID wedding from Northern California which for many might be a bit stressful, but she truly made this process as easy as wedding planning can possibly be. Jessica was incredibly responsive, professional, thorough and helpful from day one. The day of the wedding the family joke is that she had 8 arms because she did EVERYTHING. From coordinating all vendors before and during the wedding, to holding our niece so she wouldn't cry during the ceremony, to walking our dog, to arranging our beautiful centerpieces and perfectly placing our décor, to helping me bustle my confusing dress, all while sticking to our timeline perfectly. Jessica's calm and professional demeanor made us all happy and at ease during our most special day.
People always say that planning a wedding is stressful, even without a global pandemic. Thanks to Robyn and her expertise, we were able to enjoy the planning process even with the ups and downs related to COVID-19. Robyn is very knowledgeable, down to earth, hard-working, organized, thoughtful, and creative. Robyn captured by wedding vision by using essentially one picture and made it all come to life. During the wedding day, my husband and I (and our families) got to enjoy the day from start to finish because we knew that Robyn was there to support. Robyn was worth every single penny and then some! If you are hesitant on whether or not to use a planner, just do it. You will never regret having Robyn plan your wedding! Thank you so much, Robyn!
