Meet Jayde Smith, a highly experienced Nashville wedding planner. Even during the rocky times of 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic, Jayde has managed to grow her company, Jayde J. Smith Events and help couples plan their ideal weddings, for both middle Tennessee and destination couples. Below is a bit of information about Jayde, her transition into building her own wedding and events planning company, and key benefits of hiring a qualified planner
Now, to quote Jayde directly (I’ll spare you the italics, you’re welcome.) –
I’ve always had a passion for helping others. I received my bachelors degree in public relations, so I quite genuinely majored in people! An internship on Music Row landed me in Nashville, and I’ve been in the wonderful world of events in Nashville for over 5 years. Five years of non-profit galas, corporate events, wedding coordinating and wedding planning. Now I am proud to be an independent Nashville wedding planner growing my business through referrals, professional connections, and reputation.
I got my start in the coordinating / planning business while working at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, Carnton Plantation in Franklin, TN,, then Geny’s Wholesale Florist And Bridal. A bit of trivia; I met Joan Presley of Geny’s as a bride myself when I purchased flowers from Geny’s for my own wedding!
I think it’s important for brides to hire a wedding planner because for me personally, I truly genuinely want the couple to enjoy their season of engagement. I don’t want them to look back on their season of engagement and planning and think of only stress, tensions blazing and consistent concern if they are over budget. Let me handle all of the organization, vendor communication and budget maintenance while the two of you have fun at cake tastings and engagement photos!
Plus, a planner is the best gift you could give a Mother of the Bride on her daughter’s wedding day. Keep mom from having to run around all day so she can be your side and the two of you can make special memories to last a lifetime as daughter and mother, and as Bride and Mother of the Bride. If you need a Nashville wedding planner, please reach out for a consultation.
