I never dreamed my English education degree (from the University of Northern Iowa – go panthers!) would lead to planning events in the #1 wedding destination in the country, but honestly, I couldn’t dream up a better fit. Have you ever thought about comparing a rowdy bridal party to a high school classroom on the last day of school? The similarities are uncanny! I will make sure each person is in place and knows exactly what their role is to make your wedding day a success. In addition, I will make sure you understand completely how your day is going to flow and function.

For me, planning weddings is more than just making things look pretty. It’s about creating memories that are unique to you and creating an experience that people will look back on for years to come and think, “Wow, that was really something special." I am an over analyzer of logistics and ensuring your entire vendor team is prepared for success and that you're spending the day chillin are my main priorities.

Wedding advice from Erica: Always remember the reason for celebrating, and that at the end of the day you are married to your best friend, then the day went perfectly!

I spend my time outside of wedding planning with my husband, Brad, and our adorable son, Tate. To know me beyond my boys is to understand my love for Taylor Swift, Miller Lite, bright lipstick, and cuddles with my cat, Sullivan.

I grew up in Monterey, California.  In 2011, my family made a huge move across the country to Charleston. Over a decade later, this California girl is more and more of a southern belle each day.  Unwilling to leave this beautiful city I call home, I attended the College of Charleston where I earned my degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management.

I want clients to remember me as the planner that was willing to go to the ends of the earth to make their wedding perfect and everything they imagined.  I truly love getting to know my clients and their families.  Nothing beats that hug at the end of the night from my clients and hearing, “Today was everything and more. Thank you!”.  Due to my obsession with J.Lo in The Wedding Planner and Franck in the Father of the Bride, my psychotic organization and overly detailed lists, it is destiny that my career path has lead me here.

Wedding advice from Jacqueline: Keep your priorities in mind throughout planning to create an event that is a true reflection of you and your spouse-to-be.  For example, if you love film photography, splurge on your photographer and save in other areas!

To truly know me is to understand my love for Gilmore Girls, tacos and my pups, Hero, Romeo and Chapo.

I was born and raised in Venezuela. I moved to the United States when I was 16 to study English, and I ended up going to Valencia College/UCF where I earned my AA in Architecture. I turned to wedding planning to explore a different creative and design field, where I can be a part of making the best memories of our clients lives. I love the creative aspect of planning weddings, and of course the logistics and coordination (I'm a bit of a control freak!).

My favorite part of wedding day is looking at the smiles of our clients and the joy and happiness they get to experience throughout the day. I want them to remember me by saying that I went above and beyond to fulfill their expectations of their dream wedding.

Wedding advice from Alejandra: Take a moment to take everything in and look around to see all the people you love being there for you on the most special day of your life. Just enjoy every second of it!

To truly know me is to understand my love for my family, delicious food, and watching Gilmore Girls and Friends!

My love for creative expression began in dance at the age of three. I received my degree in Dance and Entrepreneurial Management at the University of Iowa. I moved to Los Angeles soon after to pursue a career as a professional dancer, and while I was fulfilling my dance dreams, I was introduced to wedding planning and my newfound passion. I spent five years in the LA area learning the wedding industry, successfully preparing and executing events with leading wedding professionals. I fell in love with coordinating beautiful, seamless weddings and guiding couples by making the planning process more enjoyable. 

Sending a bride down the aisle to meet her other half is one of the most special parts of the wedding day. I love that moment when I get to remind the bride to take a deep breath and enjoy. I have the best job in the world to help create one of the happiest and most memorable days for the couple. I want my clients to remember that I was always there for them every step of the way, that I truly cared about each little detail that goes into the day, and that I handled each situation with grace. I want clients to remember me as their calming force that they could trust throughout their wedding planning process and eventually their big day. My biggest piece of advice would be to enjoy every moment of this day. You have put so much effort into planning, now is the time to relax and be present. The wedding day goes by so fast. Try to remember how much love and support surround you and the love of your life.

If I’m not wedding planning, I love spending time with Ryan and Cooper, my fiancé and goldendoodle. To truly know me is to understand my love for a glass of wine, fitness classes, and ice cream coffee creamer.

I was born and raised in Acarigua, Venezuela and later attended the Universidad Arturo Michelena UAM where I pursued my passion and became a lawyer in 2017. After I graduated, I decided to move to the United States. I joined Peper Events in March of 2021 and they quickly became my family in the U.S. 
I'm usually the girl trailing behind the bride, carrying her train, telling her to take deep breaths moments before walking down the aisle to marry the love of her life. I'm there to anticipate your every move, when you're ready for a refreshed cocktail, when a candle needs relit after blowing out in the wind and making sure guests know where they're sitting for dinner. My favorite part of working weddings is usually eating the cake but I do secretly love listening in on the heartfelt speeches and shedding a tear or two hidden along the sidelines. 
My advice on wedding day is to be as relaxed as you can and trust your amazing vendor team to knock it out of the park. 
To truly know me is to understand my love for: The JoBro's, reading, and traveling.
