What is your name and role with Save the Date?
Jessica Johnson - Wedding Planner and Event Assistant
Tell us more about you!
I grew up in Petaluma and have spent all my life in the Bay Area, mainly Sonoma County. I have three siblings, two are much younger (tweens), so it keeps things interesting. I have a three and a half year old daughter, who thinks she's a princess and teaches me lessons in patience daily.
Describe yourself in a few words:
loyal. responsible. sarcastic.
Who is someone you admire, and why?
Working moms 100%. Balancing life with a child is crazy and I respect and admire all that do it. It's h a r d work.
Now tell us about your professional background...
I have been in the events industry for about 15 years. Right out of college I started as an intern at a winery in Napa and then moved to intern with a wedding planner in San Francisco. I have worked in rentals (hey, Encore!), winery (Trentadue), golf course(s) and with a number of different planners. I love weddings and have always found my way back to them...and am SO excited to be apart of the Save the Date team.
Where did you go to school?
I graduated for CSU Sacramento with a degree in Recreation, Leisure and Tourism where I focused on event management. I loved school- who wouldn't love going to hotels for a field trip!?
What is your favorite part about what you do with Save the Date?
I love seeing everything come together. Obviously as professionals, we see weddings more often than the average person, so seeing the details come together to create the clients vision, is the best.
What is your favorite part of any wedding day?
When the groom sees the bride for the first time. Gets me every time.
Jessica is an amazing addition to our team and we can't wait to see all the beautiful weddings she creates. Contact us at hello@savethedatesonoma to schedule a consultation with Jessica about your upcoming wedding!
