Founder & Co-Owner
Principal Wedding Designer & Director of PNW Division
Hi, I'm Jodie. I am the co-owner, founder and principal designer of Aisle Ready Events. I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida but now reside in Portland, Oregon. I just adore all things weddings and get excited to attend my client's weddings. It never gets old for me. I was honestly that little girl who would dream about her wedding one day. I never imagined that one day planning weddings would be my job!
I graduated with a degree in Hospitality Management and Tourism at the University of South Florida. I began my wedding planning journey by starting my own wedding blog and by working with another fabulous wedding and event planning company in Florida. When my husband's job took us to Indianapolis, I took the opportunity to make my biggest dream a reality and started Aisle Ready Events. I married my amazing husband on May 7, 2016 in beautiful Sarasota, Florida. It was everything I could have ever dreamed of and more.
I always aim to provide personalized attention throughout the planning process. I love the personal relationships I form with all of my couples. A wedding is such a joyful and emotional celebration. The privilege of helping couples plan their weddings is something I find very meaningful and rewarding.
What I Do When I'm Not Planning Weddings
When I'm not planning weddings you can find me with my husband traveling. We love an excuse to explore. I love dancing and good wine. One of our favorite things to do is go wine tasting. I also love shopping! My husband and I are big social butterflies so often you will see us out and about meeting new friends and hanging with our friends and family. I am often finding reasons to have a cocktail party. I probably have an unhealthy obsession with puppies. I am a proud fur momma to the sweetest Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Penny Lane. She is the sweetest thing in the world and LOVES people so if you want to meet her just let Jodie know and Penny may just join you in a meeting! :-)
Jodie and her husband Todd welcome their son, Nolen, into this world on June, 20, 2019.
