Jackie is a native Orlando girl! She has seen Orlando go from what felt like a smaller town to the busy city it is now! She’s loved living in the Atlanta area and in Puerto Rico, too, over the years. As a young person, Jackie jumped right in to the hospitality business. One of her first experiences was working at a 5-star resort in Puerto Rico on a top-notch banquet team. We’re glad that she found her niche in events! Jackie joined our team in 2012 and it hasn’t been the same since! She met her now-husband, Doug, here and they just held their own wedding at The Royal Crest Room! It was absolutely a gorgeous, special celebration. One of our favorite moments was when she smoothly transitioned from her Father-Daughter dance to special dances with each of her children! Her son, Max, sang “Bless the Broken Road” at their Ceremony, too!
When executing weddings, quinces or Sweet 16s, Jackie enjoys taking quick videos or photos of special moments going on. She has a special spot in her heart for the Father Daughter Dances … and that is so easy to understand! Who doesn’t? She definitely talks about the hugs she gets at the end of each event. Feeling appreciated really means a lot to her:) It’s the relationships that come out of these weddings that make it so worthwhile to Jackie.
If Jackie were to show you her favorite photos on her phone right now, chances are high that they would be featuring all her kids and 2 little granddaughters! On her days off, she is known to sneak away to the beach and she says she enjoys reading but we hear more about all the fun things she’s doing with her new hubby, and watching Yellowstone is one of those new obsessions!
