meet  Jenna

I am the proud owner and wedding planner of Lakeside Bride.

 

I began working in the hospitality industry over 17 years ago. I have a wide range of knowledge in venues, country clubs, hotels, banquets, meetings, restaurants, bars, and especially planning and coordinating weddings and events. During my time working on weddings, I have had the privilege of working with over 200 bridal couples on their big day through planning and coordination. Being a past bride myself, I definitely know all aspects and emotions that go into planning a wedding. That is why I'm so excited to be a part of this team and help other bridal couples feel more at ease with planning such a memorable day in their lives.

 

Keywords that would best describe me would be detailed, organized, professional, patient, energetic, and fun. I want to help you by making sure your wedding day is fully prepared to go smooth and so you can also relax knowing that someone is running the show behind the scenes. For example, my favorite phrase to reassure my clients is "I'm here to cross your t's and dot your i's". Having that reassurance that someone knows every inch of your wedding and executing everything for you on your wedding day, is so worth it. You should be enjoying every moment of your day, not coordinating it.

 

Little or big task, let me know how I can assist you on one of the best days of your life!

meet  Kieyana

Hi there, I’m Kieyana, wedding planner, designer, a dog lover (especially my mini shih tzu-poodle, Kala), and organizer extraordinaire. From planning extravagant themed parties and plays as a kid to organizing special events and trips for family and friends as I grew up, it’s clear that I’m a planner - it’s in my genes - so I’m fortunate to work with happy couples to execute their perfect, special day.

 

As a certified wedding planner and self-proclaimed wedding enthusiast, I have always loved thinking of how every small detail together makes something spectacular happen. I take pride in getting to know couples so that I can not only make their vision come alive, but so I can anticipate their needs and deliver something even better than they imagined.

 

I see life in Pinterest-perfect mood boards and have an eye for all things aesthetically pleasing. Therefore, I love combining my planning skills and eye for aesthetics to truly create a cohesive concept and day that truly portrays my couples’ unique relationship and story. 

 

I can’t wait to meet you, learn more about you, and be able to help make your wedding day one of the greatest days of your lives. Your job is to sit back, relax, and enjoy your engagement - I’ll handle the rest.

meet  Kylie

Hey there - my name is Kylie! I’m a current bride-to-be (doing everything possible to not make it my whole personality) who gets to do what she loves in the area she loves. 

 

I discovered my love for event planning in college when I worked for my school’s admissions team as an event coordinator. It wasn’t until after assisting several friends with their wedding planning and coordinating, however, that I realized that my real love is wedding planning. I went back to school for my Certification in Wedding and Event Planning, and have been helping couples plan their dream wedding since! I also hold a bachelor’s degree in English/Communications. 

 

When I’m not planning weddings or outings with friends, you can usually find me curled up with a coffee, planning my wedding, shopping, working out, or spending time with family.  (Target, anyone?) Some of my favorite things include (in no particular order): the color blue, Jesus, Cabernet, long walks by the lake, boat days, traveling, and Snoopy. (It’s a long story!) 

 

One of my favorite things about wedding planning is how unique each and every wedding is; your wedding is a reflection of you! I can’t wait to get to know you, hear your story, and take part in one of the most memorable days of your lives. (I’ll probably cry during your ceremony, FYI). My goal is to make sure your wedding is the best, most stress-free day ever! Can’t wait to get started!
