Who am I?
Hello there; Thank you for stopping by! My government name is Jessica DeWitt, I go by Jess, but if you say "yes" I'll most likely think that you are saying my name & it's this whole thing, happens all the time to me in the grocery stores, super awkward... ANYWAY, I am the owner & lead creative here at DeWitt Planning! Okay, now that we got the formal stuff out of the way, (thank goodness!) let's get down to the fun stuff. I am a fun, old soul with a soft spot for love and adventure.
What do you dew?
I don't like to call myself a wedding planner, but rather an experience planner. My couples dig doing rad things for the sake of love, and I am so hype to be able to be able to join them in the process. Whether it is an elopement, micro-wedding, or a styled photoshoot, I am here to help you make it epic! Want to take the leap into marriage by literally jumping out of a plane? I'll be right here holding the door open in my goggles & parachute.
WHere DO YOU DEWITT?
Is everywhere but the moon (for now) a good answer? We rest our heads in Salt Lake City, Utah, but we are quite often on the road all around the country!
Some of our recent destinations:
Ogden, Utah - Groton, CT - Long Beach Island, NJ - Easton, CT - Portland, Maine - Stowe, Vermont - White Mountains, New Hampshire - Block Island, Rhode Island - Cape Cod, Massachusetts - Portland, Maine
WHY DO YOU DEWITT?
Did you ever meet someone that was making business cards for their "planning" business at seven years old? If not, well it's nice to meet you! I grew up making printed menus for my family dinners, rather affordable I might add too, I mean 10 cent coffee, who wouldn't love that? Fast forward many many moons to today, and my passion for planning still burns strong to this day. I love getting to be apart of such a special day with my clients, and creating a friendship with them throughout the planning process. I do this because I love what I do, and I want you to be able to love the experience just as much as I do.
WHEN I'M NOT PLANNING...
I find myself surrounded by family, both fur & human. I enjoy spending time in nature, exploring antique shops, and creating art in my spare time. I love painting landscapes, woodworking, or anything that ends with my hands covered in paint.
WHat's my experience?
I have worked at many of the leaders in hospitality in the United States including; Ocean House in Rhode Island, Saybrook Point Inn, Water's Edge Resort & Spa, and Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. Through working at these properties, along with my bachelors degree in event management from Johnson & Wales University, one thing was missing for me... CREATIVITY! I was lacking an outlet for me to express all of these crazy ideas I had, but could not express. In opening DeWitt Planning, I wanted to continually challenge myself, overcome obstacles, and do things that I never even imagined could be possible. Every event, small or large, $1,000 or $100,000, is important to me because I genuinely love what I do. It still amazes me that something I enjoy so much is "work."
