Raised in a very close family where creativity was encouraged, Jessica has always had a gift for entertaining. She began planning her own wedding in junior high school; gleaning inspiration from movies and magazines, she planned weddings for every season and scenario. Years later, she was able to express her creativity in baby showers for her sister and bridal showers for friends. In 2006, after planning her own destination wedding in Seaside, Florida, Jessica was encouraged by her husband, Logan, to begin an event coordination business. Working closely with her sister, Anna, and mom, Kimberly, she began planning weddings for friends and family members. And Finishing Touch Event Design was born.

Finishing Touch has continued to grow. Today Jessica - with a little loving assistance from the entire Finishing Touch Team - designs events throughout the state of Arkansas and beautiful destination weddings. Jessica is a “Professional Bridal Consultant” as designated by the Association of Bridal Consultants and has completed courses ranging from Planning and Consulting to Etiquette. She works to understand her clients’ wants and needs, and then blends their unique style and personality with her creative design. The result – a signature event for each client that exceeds their dreams.

Jessica lives in Bentonville, Arkansas with her husband and their German Shepherd, Xandy. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Art History/Criticism from the University of Arkansas.

Finishing Touch is truly a family business. Anna, Jessica’s sister, is the assistant coordinator for most of our weddings. In addition to helping everything run smoothly on your wedding day, Anna brings a perfectionist’s eye to each detail to ensure everything is done exactly as it should be. She is especially talented with floral arranging, and will spend endless hours creating impeccable bouquets and arrangements for your big day. Anna will make certain that every aspect of your wedding is absolutely perfect before you make your grand entrance! Anna lives in Fort Smith, Arkansas with her husband, Michael, and her two beautiful daughters, Annaston & Lydia Belle.

Kimberly, the resident Finishing Touch artist, is also Jessica and Anna’s mother. In addition to working behind the scenes to make sure that each wedding runs flawlessly, Kimberly’s talent enables us to give each bride a picture of their wedding as the details come together. Sketching everything from bouquets to tablescapes, and much more, our brides are able to fully visualize their custom designs before their wedding day arrives. This enables you to feel completely confident in the concept for your wedding and helps you to relax as your big day draws near.
Kimberly lives in Fort Smith, Arkansas with her husband, Dr. James Cheshier. She works part time for her father at Parkbilt Homes and spends as much time as possible with her three grandchildren.
