Friday Introductions - Jamee

Athens Wedding Planners | Wedding Venues in Athens | Day-of Coordinators | Athens Georgia | Ashley Rae Events

June of 2015, Historic Smithonia Farm, Jamee graced me with her fantastic self!

I was hired by the Mother of the Bride and she informed me that they had a family friend who was breaking into the event industry who was planning on helping with the wedding, but she wanted to be sure that everything was covered since she was new to the industry.

My associate planner at the time, Lindsey, was with me and we were hoping to have a smooth ride with this "Jamee-girl"... Well, we fell in love! She was marvelous, super easy to work with and so so very sweet.

At the time I was still working on growing, Lindsey was my first associate planner that I ever hired and she was all I really needed at the time, but I just didn't want to let Jamee go. So I asked Jamee if she would be interested in possibly being our "back-up" girl just in case we need her and she accepted!

Jamee slowly worked her way into more and more weddings. Eventually, Lindsey moved back to Orlando so it was just Jamee and I for a short period of time. We started to expand again back in 2016 and as of the Spring of 2017, Jamee has become our new manager.

She handles everything with such poise and elegance and I am so thankful that she is not only a part of our team, but a major leader of this team. 

I'm very excited to see where she helps to take this business!

When Jamee isn't planning weddings, she is either working her full-time job at UGA, as their Public Relations Specialist within their Health Center. She resides in Winder with her husband, Phil. Together they have 3 dogs, 1 cat and chickens.
