Our wedding was more perfect than we could have ever imagined! We started working with Touch of Essence about 11 months before our big day. From the start the team was easy to work with and they took great care and concern as it related to making sure our wishes were met. We had many challenges leading up to our day - a limited budget, a busy holiday weekend to plan around, planning from out of town, and the biggest of which was when the bride’s mother became very ill. Despite the ups and downs, Touch of Essence always made sure that things were under control and that they could make our dreams become a reality!The team was always well prepared, meticulous, and organized with every detail of the wedding planning. We could not have asked for a better team or a better day. The actual day was seamless and so many of friends have commented that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever attended! We would work with Touch of Essence again in a heartbeat…in fact we are already looking forward to the 10 year anniversary/Renewal of Vows event! We will be sure to call Touch of Essence to do all the planning.- John & Melissa Howard

A Touch of Essence Event Planning was the best decision I've made other than asking my wife to marry me. Basically, a year of planning all came down to a week of pulling every loose end together and my wife and I couldn't have done it with out Jessica and her team. Nothing was to large or to small for Jessica to keep under control. Every part of my wedding was handled with care. The stress of my wedding day would have truly been overwhelming if it hadn't have been for A Touch of Essence. From our first meeting up until our last meeting all my questions and concerns were addressed. I always felt comfortable with Jessica's expertise with my entire wedding. My wedding was the best day of my life and it wouldn't have been the perfect day that it was without Jessica! If you need a little help with planning or if you need your entire event planned, you can count on A Touch of Essence Wedding & Event Planning to make your day one to remember and cherish.- Brandon Claybrooks

Choosing Jessica Glover with A Touch of Essence Wedding & Event Planning was the BEST decision I could have made! I get stressed out fairly easily and planning a wedding for 300 people is the most stressful thing that I have ever dealt with, that is until we hired Jessica! She was absolutely amazing! Everything I was too stressed to do, she did it. Everything that I just didn't have time for, she did it! Everything I forgot, she remembered. She saved me! She thought of things that I never would have thought of! I am very critical of little details that most people would never be concerned about. I can honestly say that I couldn't have asked for more out of Jessica. She and her team were amazing! I did not have to worry about anything! My wedding day was absolutely perfect! I would recommend Jessica and her team to anyone! She is AWESOME!!!- Gina Claybrooks

Jessica and her team, A Touch of Essence, did such an amazing job with our wedding that it is impossible for me to write all I want to say. Thanks to A Touch of Essence, our wedding and reception was more wonderful than I had ever imagined. Having Jessica and her team on board took so much of the stress off of me and allowed me to truly enjoy our wedding, reception, and everything leading up to the special day. Since my husband is Japanese and we both live in Japan, I was very overwhelmed with the prospect of planning a wedding in my hometown (in middle Tennessee) from overseas. After my husband and I got engaged, I started research on wedding venues, caterers, and such, but I soon discovered that the task was far too much for me alone to handle, not to mention the distance and time difference I was trying to overcome. I worked with Jessica when we were both in college so I knew how organized and professional she was. Needless to say, when I discovered that she'd started wedding and event planning, I was ecstatic. From the moment I contacted her (seven months before our wedding) up until she wished me a happy honeymoon, she was on top of everything. She stayed in constant communication with me from the get go, covered every little detail, and made sure we had everything we needed to make our wedding perfect. She asked vendors all the right questions, things I’d never even thought of before! She was organized, professional, and efficient from the very beginning. She took my ideas and vision for our wedding and made it more beautiful in reality than I had ever dreamed. Because of Jessica and her team at A Touch of Essence, my husband and I, as well as family and friends, were truly able to put the stresses of the wedding aside and thoroughly enjoy the day. My wedding day was the happiest day of my life, and I will forever be grateful to Jessica and A Touch of Essence for all they did to make it such a beautiful, wonderful day! I highly recommend A Touch of Essence to anyone who wants to hold a fantastic event with memories to cherish forever.- Teresa Sasaki

I personally feel that you did an amazing job with our wedding. That was an exceptional "first wedding." Wedding "PLANNING" is truly your gifting. I expected everything to turn out well but I was definitely blown away by the scale and quality of every aspect of the wedding. One would assume that you've been doing it for years now, if they didn't know better. Continue to walk in it...God Bless! - Eric Meriwether

When I asked Jessica to help me plan my wedding, I knew she would do a good job. Jessica has always been organized, professional, and committed to whatever she does. However, I was not ready for what Jessica would do for the next 7 months of planning my wedding. Everything from making calls to making me comfortable, Jessica was wonderful from beginning to end. I have already referred some of my other friends who are getting married so that they too will experience a beautiful, carefree wedding regardless of their budget. Jessica you are great girl. Keep doing what you do best.- Tempest Meriwether

My husband and I were so excited to be renewing our vows, but with 4 kids and a FULL life, I just didn't know how to make it come together. I am very much of a planner and organizer so I knew how I wanted every DETAIL to be for my big day...from the colors to the how the ceremony would flow...down to the reception. Then God brought me the ultimate fix...He brought me Jessica. I loved working with Jessica because she thought the way I did and went above and beyond. She held meetings with me every week to make sure my big day would be special. She went through every little detail from big to small. She took on big projects that I was suppose to do to make sure I wouldn't have any added stress and that was something I truly appreciated. She kept in touch with me through the whole process to make sure that I was okay and she returned ALL of my calls promptly. I felt very RELAXED with Jessica because I knew that she had everything under control. The best part of working with Jessica was when the BIG DAY arrived. She kept me calm and on time...everything that I had visualized came to life and flowed so precisely. My husband and I enjoyed our day without a GLITCH!!..I know I keep rambling but our day really was PERFECT...Jessica was very professional and personable as though she has been in the industry for decades. The biggest reward since the renewal is staring at my amazing photos and hearing all my friends talk about how amazing and entertaining everything was. I am still wearing my SMILE...thanks, Jessica!!!!- Reggie & Tanora Polk
