Meet: Jackie Travers

By way of background, I studied business and economics at Fordham University and then studied law at New York Law School. After graduating, I practiced law for three years in Manhattan helping clients plan their wills, trusts and estates — so, basically I was helping people plan for the end of their life rather then the best day of their life!

After I got engaged and started focusing on my own wedding –I realized I had an obsession for a different type of planning – wedding planning. When I returned home from my honeymoon, I made the very scary decision to leave a stable career in law to start my own company — and I’ve been planning weddings ever since.

What is your favorite moment at a wedding?

One of my favorite moments of a wedding is the morning preparations. The bride is surrounded by the love of her closest friends and family. She is anxious but excited. It is going to be the most magical day of her life (and I can’t wait for her to experience it!)

What is the best part about your job?

I love knowing that I’ve played a part in creating the best day of my client’s lives and just seeing the clients completely wrapped up in the joy of their celebration after months of planning and hard work – makes it all worth it for me. I really enjoy creating the most value I can for my couples.

Where do you draw inspiration from when preparing for each wedding?

I am inspired by my couples. I draw inspiration from their excitement for the day ahead.

Share something that is unique to you and/or your business.

As an attorney, I utilize my legal skills every day with my business (drafting my own contracts, reviewing venues and vendor contracts, negotiating prices to benefit my clients and so much more!).
