Jessica was not only an AMAZING event planner, but a wonderful support, friend and encouragement during our entire wedding process, and we are so grateful for her in every way. She is extremely talented, inventive in design and artistic expression, and really makes a couples vision come to life and takes all the stress away from planning and makes it fun and allows a couple to take in every moment of their big day before, during, and after. We can't thank her enough for all her time, effort, dedication, and patience through this planning process, and she has a so many gifts but is extremely proficient and professional and ALWAYS follows through, and that is so important to the success of any event. Our wedding weekend was PERFECT and totally us in every way, and Jessica played a vital role in making it the magical experience we wanted for our guests and ourselves, and we are so thankful. Any event or bride is extremely lucky to have an outstanding individual like Jessica to take their ideas and bring them to life, and do it in the most compassionate and kind manner with such artistry and attention to detail.
Jessica thank you for everything, we love you dearly!!
-Susan Veasey-McGrath - Bride, October 2013


"Words can't express how thankful I am that I had you as my wedding planner and that you helped turn my dream into a reality.. My wedding was in a word STUNNING. Everything took my breath away and I know that it was all because of you. You captured exactly what I had imagined but couldn't create myself! It was the best day of my life so far and I couldn't have been happier. Everything went so smoothly (to my knowledge anyway haha) and I just can never thank you enough for EVERYTHING you did for us. Any bride will be lucky to have you and your team! My tables were gorgeous, ceremony beautiful, I have gotten SO MANY compliments on the band you suggested, desserts were delicious, and I mean what can I say....everything was PERFECT!!!! The planning itself for the last year was so much less stressful because I had you....You were just wonderful and like I said I just can't put into words exactly how thankful I am."
-Abby Taylor - Bride, November 2013


Jessica is amazing! She made our day stress-free and wonderful. We used her for our flowers as well and she made everything beautiful. It was so much more than we could've done ourselves. She and her team are the best!!!
-DeMee Williams - Bride, September 2013

{Jessica} is very organized, professional, and provides high quality work. She helped guide us throughout the whole wedding planning process from beginning to end. She does her job well and no one can compete with her excellent service.
-Susan Davidson - Mother of the Bride, June 2013


Jessica was on top of everything form the very beginning. She helped me complete my vision for our wedding and helped make so many of the decisions, both important and miniscule, along the way. Jessica and her Finishing Touches team worked well with the vendors and other volunteers who helped at the event. Her creativity and organization were essential to keeping everything on track during the planning, preparation, and execution of our wedding. Most importantly, I knew that when Jessica was on the scene, I felt confident she would take care of everything so that my family and I could relax and enjoy ourselves.
-Emmarie Foerester - Bride, April 2013


Thank you so much, Jessica! Hiring you to be our wedding coordinator is the best decision that we made in the entire wedding planning process. I was so impressed by your organization, knowledge, contacts in the industry, impeccable taste, and kind personality. It made the eight-month process so fun and stress-free. I have received so many gracious comments from friends and family saying that it was "the most beautiful wedding" they've ever attended. While our goal was more about the message of God's provision and redemption, it still made my heart so glad to know that our work paid off and that it was a unique and special thank-you gift to them for a lifetime of loving us...through the good and the bad. It was truly a magical evening for us, our guests, and, especially, my children. Thank you so much, Jessica.
- Ashley Shaver Noland - Bride, July 2012

Jessica Kersey and Finishing Touch Event Design was the reason behind my husband and I having an absolutely perfect wedding day down to every detail. Not only was the day heavenly, but the whole process leading up to the day was a breeze and actually fun! Jessica's main priority will always be maintaining your happiness. Through her design, she has the ability to help bring out your personality while adding her flawless taste.
The day of the ceremony and reception, she had such an effortless grace that was noticeable to all the guests. Everyone who came in contact with her mentioned to me and my husband how wonderful she was. Aside from the choice of groom :), hiring Jessica was the best decision I made about our wedding.
-Paige Duda - Bride, March 2012


Jessica is one of the sweetest people I have ever met! I'm in school, so I had very little time to do planning. Jessica took care of EVERYTHING! I explained to her what I envisioned, and her interpretation surpassed all that I could have imagined. It was truly a blessing to have her as our planner. The day after the wedding I told my husband "I'm so glad we got a planner", and he said "no, I'm so glad we got Jessica"! Working with Jessica was like working with one of my closest friend. I just can't say enough. Finishing Touch is wonderful!
-Akira Sims - Bride, March 2012

Jessica was amazing. As the mother of the bride, it was such a pleasure and relief to know that everything, and I mean everything, was taken care of. I cannot begin to imagine my daughter’s wedding without her. She thought of everything. Jessica was always calm and extremely organized, leaving no detail untouched. Her advice was invaluable. All of her suggestions, for different vendors for photographer, cake, band, venue, etc., were perfect and we always knew that she was advocating to get the best price and value. Jessica always responded quickly to emails, texts and phone calls. She paid attention to every single detail. She definitely went above and beyond. I would not hesitate to recommend Jessica.
-Peggy Diaz - Mother of the Bride, March 2012

I could have not imagined my wedding day without the help of Jessica Kersey and her staff! Words alone can not be enough for her help! She made my wedding day a day that I will remember and cherish forever. Hiring Jessica to plan the wedding was the best purchase we ever did! My wedding vision was perfectly brought to life... She is the perfect wedding planner because not only is she brilliantly organized but she is fun, talented, creative, professional, responsible, flexible, a good listener, caring, and most of all she made me feel so confident and calm on my wedding day. My family also loved her for these reasons but also she was great with helping us with the budget we gave her and got us the best bang for our buck and everything turned out perfect! I would recommend Finishing Touch Event Design and Jessica to anyone looking for a wedding planner! Even if you are not thinking of hiring a wedding planner, you should rethink that decision and hire Jessica and get the wedding of your dreams at a price you can afford! Thanks again Jessica for making my wedding day truly winter white and truly special.
-Rachel Curtner - Bride, December 2011

Jessica and the Finishing Touch team, were a blessing to work with. She captured every detail our dream wedding perfectly! I was recommended to her services by one of my photographers, and cannot tell you how great it was to actually enjoy my day, rather than be bogged down with details. Jessica took care of everything! From ensuring that contracts were being delivered to set up and take down the day of, all I had to do was sit back and enjoy being the bride. She was so easy and pleasant to work with and extremely prompt in replying to each of the questions (or panic moments) that I had. You will not regret having her be part of your day, as well! I promise, it was one of the best decisions I made!! Thank you a million times!! We loved every little detail.
-Sherri Hammett - Bride, October 2011

Jessica and the Finishing Touch Event Design team gave my husband and I our dream wedding, and I know it would not have been possible if they would not have been there. We planned our wedding over the past year, and she was with us every step of the way and helped make our dream wedding come to life. On the day of the wedding, she took care of everything, and I had no worries at all! I was able to hang out and get ready with my bridal party all day and never had to worry about the decorations, cake, etc. I think the best compliment of all for Finishing Touch Event Design was from some of the groomsmen because who knew groomsmen even notice the wedding planner! They said that "she was awesome and so laid back but still got the job done without being bossy." Choosing to use Finishing Touch Event Design was one of the best decisions I made while planning our wedding, and I would highly recommend them to anyone!
-Kaylen Lewis, Bride - July, 2011

Made the day of so relaxing, everything went on cue without any problems, totally worth every penny!!
-Kimberly Rhodes, Bride - July, 2011

Jessica was able to take our dream of a 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' themed wedding and turn it into a reality. Her personality and calm demeanor made it easy to work with her. The wedding started on time and the layout of the reception was perfect. For anyone getting married and your told you don't need a coordinator you can do it yourself my suggestion is to run to the nearest phone and dial Jessica Kearsey. I had no stress for the first five months of the wedding planning. If I had it to do all over again I would use her services again.
-Tarika Ingram, Bride - June, 2011

Jessica at Finishing Touch Event Design was the best decision we ever made. I know for a fact that I couldn't have planned our wedding without her. She allowed us to enjoy the engagement and wedding process without stress! Not only was she very professional, but she became a friend. When I have an event that I need help planning.. you better believe Jessica is my first phone call. I will and have recommended her to everyone that asks about our wedding. We have had nothing but excellent reviews on the whole wedding as well as our planner(s). If you only have room in your budget for one thing... make sure it's a wedding planner and Jessica is my pick!
-Marissa Wells, Bride - May, 2011

I wanted to take some time to thank you so much for helping me get ready for this wedding! Have you been missing my crazy question emails? Everything was BEAUTIFUL! It was everything I wanted and more! Amazing. Thank you and your team so much for helping to make this day so special and one that will be fondly remembered for the rest of my life. It was exquisite.
- Ashley Buyse, Bride - February 2011


Planning a wedding is a sometimes overwhelming process and Jessica was right there beside me every step of the way with her invaluable knowledge, advice and creative ideas. She attended countless meetings with me and was always just an email or phone call away if I needed her. Having her there the day of the wedding alone was worth every penny. I was able to place everything in her capable hands and just enjoy the day. My wedding day was perfect thanks to Finishing Touch!
- Kathryn Hedden, Bride - April 2011

My daughter, Casey, had heard about Jessica from a friend of her's that was getting married and recommended her. We were excited after our first meeting because she was so creative and a delight to work with. Jessica has a gracious confidence that puts you at ease, but also is a strong advocate for you in negotiating with vendors. First and foremost - her flowers are amazing! Jessica, Kimberly and Anna did so much behind the scenes to make sure that everything was perfect for Casey and Andrew. I appreciated that they would come find us and quietly let us know what was coming up next on the timeline, so that we did not miss anything. We enjoyed the night and left the rest up to the professionals.
- Janet Sowers, Mother of the Bride, August 2010

Jessica and her team at Finishing Touch are PRICELESS. They go above and beyond on every detail of the wedding process and are absolutely worth every penny. Their attention to the finer things, organization, creativity and passion for perfection gave me a sense of comfort and security that allowed me to enjoy the planning process and, of course, my wedding day with very limited stress. I am so grateful for Jessica's patience, fortitude and dedication - her guidance and expertise allowed us to have an amazing wedding that not only we, but our friends and family, will never forget. If you haven't done so already: HIRE HER.
-Allison Scott, Bride - October 2010

I was so pleased with the way everything turned out. Thank you so much for outlining the entire weekend and ensuring everything went smoothly…..which we owe to YOU! We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your sister! You were wonderful and I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know getting married! You're the Best!
- Lydia Holloway, Bride - July 2010

Dear Jessica, I bless the day Sarah stopped by your booth at the bridal fair. You were absolutely the best and made my night wonderfully worry free. If I can ever write you a recommendation, please let me know as it will be my pleasure.
- Regan Kennedy, Mother of the Bride - September 2010

Thank you so much for everything you have done to make Sarah's wedding day the most beautiful occasion we could have ever imagined. You are truly a gift from God. We are so lucky to have found you.

It was a blessing to have someone who helped us with every aspect of planning our wedding and especially someone has nice and professional as Jessica. Jessica provided us with ideas, thoughts and suggestions that brought our simple ideas into fabulous features that made our wedding unique and unforgettable! We cannot express our gratitude to Jessica and her team at Finishing Touch Event Design enough and we know that because of them, we had a fun, stress-free and perfect wedding! Thank you Jessica and Finishing Touch Event Design!
-Tyler Williams, Bride - May 2010

Jessica was the perfect coordinator to work with. I chose to do most of the planning....and only needed a coordinator for the day of. She and she literally took care of everything starting about 2 weeks before the wedding. She took care of all the little details that I probably wouldn't have thought of, and I didn't have to worry about a thing. My husband and his groomsmen LOVED her! Jessica was so laid back, had everything under control, and made the day go so smoothly. Loved working with her!
