While Jessica would never claim to be a wedding coordinator or decorator, she’s held a bride’s train down the aisle, gracefully carried a tray full of champagne, assembled an arch moments before a ceremony, and DJ’d a pretty epic late-night playlist. When the last guest leaves, she slips into tennis shoes and becomes the clean-up crew. There’s a good chance that Jessica will spend more time on your wedding than she did on her own! Jessica appreciates that The Depot offers a laid-back experience, cultivates quality time among guests, and nicely compliments a client's personal touches.
