Favorite part of wedding day
The moment after the bride and groom walk down the aisle as a married couple. They’re so elated and relieved it’s over. I always sneak my couples off to a private area to have a moment just the two of them to get to enjoy the feeling of being married.

Wedding day tip
I always tell my brides to pick the top 5 things they want everyone to remember from their wedding day. Maybe it’s an amazing photographer or a super fun band or DJ. Perhaps it’s delicious food or the most beautiful dress. Whatever it is, spend your money there and everything else is small details. 

Wedding experience
Weddings were always something I loved, from the look on the couple’s face to the celebration on the dance floor. In 2010 I moved to Kansas City and started working for a wedding planner as her assistant on the day of coordination. In 2013, I started my own wedding coordination business to help those brides who didn’t think they could afford to hire a wedding coordinator. Then I joined Veil Events when it started in 2018.

Hire Veil Events because…
The bride spends many months planning the perfect wedding and then doesn’t know who is going to execute it on the wedding day. Many brides think their family can help make their plans come true but they’re often busy with pictures or visiting with family, or worse, they miss all the important moments of their loved one’s big day. A wedding coordinator makes sure the bride and their family have the perfect, stress-free day!

Jaclyn's Reviews

Veil Events will always have a referral from us!

“Shout out and a big thank you to Veil Events for EVERYTHING that they did to make our day just perfect. There was so much that they did to make the day run smoothly and make sure that all of the personal touches we wanted were there. We even noticed the personal touches that they put on the day – like bringing a metal bucket for the poppers for our exit – something we didn’t think of. So many times someone made the comment we need to do x, y, or z, and someone would remind us that Kaylie was on it. And on it she and Jaclyn were. From finding diaper bags and diamonds and cleaning wax off of the groom’s suit, they fixed all the “problems.” I appreciate all the work they did to work with each of our vendors; even when it wasn’t easy, like fighting the good fight to get us some cookie sandwiches. It was a smooth transition from Lindsay to Kaylie when our date changed, and they didn’t miss a beat. We wanted our day to be fun, stress-free, and for everyone to leave feeling loved and cared for. I got a message from a guest that her son had said that his cup was filled from the day and hers was too. They were an integral part of making that happen, and filling our cups that day (literally – thank you Jaclyn – and figuratively). They listened to what was important to us, gave advice, but never pushed their agenda. Thank you, we appreciate it more than you know. While almost all our friends are married (as evidenced by all the children at our wedding), know that Veil Events – Lindsay, Kaylie, and Jaclyn – will always have a referral from us. We are big fans of you all and we are so grateful.”

By far the best use of our money for the wedding!

“Jaclyn & the Veil Events Team were AMAZING. To save some money, I had opted to do the florals myself and have the Veil Team set everything up, as well as handle all day-of coordination. They were extremely professional & took care of every little problem (there are probably more than I even know of!). Jaclyn was so sweet & supportive on the day of – I recommend Veil Events to anyone who has a wedding coming up! By far the best use of our money for the wedding.”

Jaclyn and her team knew what I needed before I knew I needed them!

“We hired Veil to provide day of coordination for our wedding (as well as wedding tear down), but I feel like Veil provided value way beyond just this one day! Lindsay and our coordinator Jaclyn touched base with us from first hire, and kept track of our planning process throughout our entire engagement (almost 1.5 years). I loved that Jaclyn and Lindsay were always available to answer questions, refer vendors, give advice. The month before the wedding we worked closely with Jaclyn to prepare for the wedding day, as she was a part of our walk through and we separately talked throughout this time. I can’t tell you how much Jaclyn made me feel comfortable about execution of my plans! I didn’t want to worry about anything or be responsible for anything on wedding day, and I had complete trust in Jaclyn and her team. She seamlessly executed our plans at the venue for the ceremony and reception without needing any instruction. Jaclyn and her team knew what I needed before I knew I needed them. Jaclyn easily wrangled a large wedding party and our families for photos and the ceremony. Our wedding party and families were so complimentary of Jaclyn. My husband was hesitant to hire a coordinator, wondering whether we could just do it ourselves. But I can confidently say that by the end of the wedding, he knew it was totally worth it I hired Veil Events because of its great reviews, and I am happy to provide another positive review, and assure brides that booking Veil is a great idea!”

We feel so incredibly lucky that we found Veil Events!

“I cannot say enough positive things about Veil Events to really drive home the point of how helpful, thorough and incredible this team is. Our coordinator was Jaclyn and I am now her number one fan! She was extremely organized and10 steps ahead of everything that would pop into my head. My family and I are still talking about her months later and how we truly don’t think the day would have been half as perfect without her. We feel so incredibly lucky that we found Veil Events, thank you again for everything!”

Jaclyn from Veil Events was amazing!

“Jaclyn from Veil Events was amazing! She made it possible for myself, the groom, bridal party, and family to fully enjoy our wedding day while she handled the coordination of vendors, timelines, and all the details and moving pieces associated with our wedding. Highly recommend!”

I could not have asked for a better experience!

“Jaclyn was so helpful and wonderful to work with. I was able to enjoy my wedding day, and the days leading up, without stress because of the organization and hard work of Veil Events! I could not have asked for a better experience.”

Jaclyn made the whole day stress-free!

“Lindsay was so nice and helpful from the very beginning, she give you a wedding planning book that was very helpful! I loved working with Jaclyn! Jaclyn was amazing from the very first meeting she was kind and sweet! Even though she was my day of coordinator I was able to text her with questions from the very beginning. She was even more amazing on my wedding day. She arrived on time and went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I had everything we needed. She made the whole day stress-free. It happened to be freezing on my wedding day and Jaclyn gave me her coat to wear not only when I was waiting to walk down the aisle but also when we were waiting to do our grand entrance. I honestly loved working with Jaclyn.”

I’m so happy I chose Veil Events for my wedding!

“I’m so happy I chose Veil Events for my wedding! Jaclyn was my coordinator and I could not have asked for a better coordinator! She went above and beyond on my wedding day to make sure everything went smoothly! She took on so many roles from helping with set up/decor, clean up, decorating my cake with flowers, time management/creating schedule, keeping the wedding party’s drinks full, having everything the bridal party needed while getting ready, etc. I could go on and on, but I’ll just say she was phenomenal! The unexpected details were not unnoticed by family, the wedding party, guests and myself – I got so many compliments about her! Lindsay was also a dream to work with! She helped me book everything and stayed involved in the whole process! The planning process was made so easy as I had multiple meetings with checkpoints along the way to make sure I was not forgetting anything! I would highly recommend Veil Events for any bride- you will not be disappointed!”
