About Me

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.

Jodie with Aisle Ready Events was so wonderful to work with! I worked with her for the “Month of Service” and it was so great! We met a couple of times and had phone calls. She made sure the day went so smoothly, the timeline she put together was perfect and helped so much! She confirmed all of the vendors and made sure everyone knew what to do and where to be. I would highly recommend working with Jodie!

Jodie is one of a kind. The best of the best EVER!!! I can not imagined our wedding without Jodie, she has gone above and beyond for our wedding at Scottish Rite Cathedral Indianapolis . I wasn’t sure at first if we needed a wedding planner. We both have been working a lot but also wanted a perfect planned wedding. So we started looking for a wedding planner and found Jodie. After speaking to her, she made us feel so confident that she would made our wedding so perfect in every ways. We seriously thank you from the bottom of our hearts and for making our dream wedding came true. XOXO!

Jodie was not only incredibly professional, creative and budget conscious, she was also simply a delight to work with and is truly a lovely person inside and out. She was able to take the bride’s top line vision and help translate it into the details that made it into truly the wedding of my daughter’s dreams. I can’t imagine having pulled this off without her!

I cannot begin to describe all the wonderful things Jodie did to make our wedding such a success! In every step of the process she was the epitome of hard work and professionalism. My husband and I are both in the Navy and live in California. I am not from Indiana and the thought of planning a wedding from half the country away while my fiancé was deployed and my schedule didn’t allow me to travel was daunting. Finding Jodie was a life saver! The wedding would not have been possible without her. She kept us on track throughout the planning process and found amazing vendors that were not only perfect for our vision but within our budget! Jodie bent over backwards to work around our busy schedules. The wedding far exceeded any of my dreams and that was because of Jodie. When the day finally arrived, I was worry free because I knew Jodie had everything covered. I highly recommend hiring her. You could not go wrong!R

We will never be able to thank Jodie and the team at Aisle Ready Events enough for making each detail of our wedding day special and unique. Jodie helped my husband and I with every aspect of the wedding planning process and kept us on track with upcoming items and decisions that needed to be made. We were so impressed with her eye for detail, organization skills and how quickly she would respond to an email or phone call. I would highly recommend Aisle Ready Events to any couple that is getting ready to plan one of the most important days of their lives. Jodie and her team are worth every penny. You have the comfort of knowing that you are working with a professional that truly understands the ins and outs of the planning process, rehearsal and day-of details forwards and backwards. Because of Jodie and the team at Aisle Ready Events, my husband and I were able to sit back and really enjoy our wedding day stress-free because we knew that Aisle Ready Events had it covered. You are the best!
