LET ME PLAN YOUR DREAM WEDDING WHILE YOU RELAX & ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE!

My career in hospitality started in 2005 when my desire to make my mark within the industry led to an International diploma in Hotel & catering Management.

2006-2009 I worked on Marco Island, Florida, United States at Marco Beach Ocean Resort, as the in-house wedding co-ordinator. Where I solely planned each wedding from start to finish. I co-ordinated on average 2-4 weddings per week, which led me to complete an International diploma in Wedding planning.

Weddings can be a stressful time, let me plan your dream wedding, large or small, that is customised to meet your needs, your budget and your wishes. I am truly passionate about the wedding industry! My wide range of experience, along with extensive knowledge will provide you with the security of knowing your event will be a success. We handle the stress of planning your event by co-ordinating and making sure everything exceeds your expectations.
I would be pleased to coordinate all or part of your special event!


Kindest Regards,


Jade Calvert

Testimonials

Thank you again for everything. You made planning a wedding from far away so easy. Everything was just perfect, and that is mainly because of the wonderful job that you did. We hope to be back next year so we can actually enjoy all that Marco Island has to offer. We were so busy with the wedding and our guests that we didn't get to see much. Thanks again for all that you've done! Kristen
