From weddings for 500 guests to those for immediate family only, JLK Weddings has a package available to suit your needs.
From the moment you become engaged until the last guest at the reception says goodnight, the full-service package has you covered. Starting at $3600, Jessica and the team will guide your entire planning process. They’ll take calls, handle meetings, and coordinate your activities with precision and fun.
If you have a good plan but could use some help in execution, check out JLK’s month of package. Jessica will assist you as you head down the final stretch and coordinate your ceremony and reception. Pricing begins at $1800, depending on event size and complexity.
A la carte
Need assistance with something specific for your big day, but have the rest under control? Maybe you could use someone to recommend hotels for your out-of-town guests or give you insight on the best way to arrange a tricky seating chart. Jessica is happy to offer these one-off services for any couple needing to bounce ideas around. A la carte offerings are billed at an hourly rate of $75 an hour.
Couples who favor elopements often seek to avoid the stress that they see a large-scale wedding as. For these couples, nothing could be more hassle-free than JLK’s all-inclusive elopement package. In this package, priced at $3900, Jessica and her team take care of everything. This includes location, hair and makeup, officiant, photography, bouquet, boutonniere, cake and champagne, decorations, music, and seating for up to ten. All you have to do is grab your clothes and your significant other and you are ready to say your vows! What could be simpler than that?
JLK Weddings does not stick to a preferred vendor list for clients.
“We are always open to working with new wedding vendors and making new friends,” says Jessica.
She does, however, provide a list of vendors she has worked with in the past and whose work she finds impeccable. Regardless of whether you choose from her list or bring in your favorite local business, Jessica is happy to partner with them to make your wedding day come to life.
Jessica has a firm commitment to honoring her couple’s finances. She and her staff maintain an awareness of the overall budget throughout the planning process. They won’t recommend vendors who don’t fit within your framework. Should they receive a discount from a vendor, they’ll pass that straight on to the couple.
