Just wanted to say day of wedding coordination provided by Wedding Story was the best. My husband and I hired Jackie and her crew to oversee and coordinate our Korean (Paebak) ceremony and reception. They were absolutely delightful to work with and were extremely professional. Their staff is very knowledgeable about Korean customs, being Korean themselves, and how to manage a large reception party. I did not have to worry about the reception at all because they did all the work, including coordinating with vendors when they arrive, setting up everything, and gathering all of our wedding decorations so my family and I can bring it home. Anytime I asked something from the team, they would immediately act on it. Jackie made sure we stayed within our timeline by letting us know when and where we had to be. She even gathered the wedding party and family members and made sure they lined up in the correct order a head of time so we can start the reception on time.

Wedding Story truly made our day relaxing and enjoyable and I highly recommend them if you are planning a wedding!

This was a big wedding with 350+ guests expected. We were looking for experienced vendor that knows in and out of big weddings and is able to handle my stress. More than my high expectations, the Wedding Story was able to pull it off with superb perfection.

First of all, the Wedding Story was FLEXIBLE. I thought I was an easy-going girl but closer to the wedding date I could hardly keep my words about almost everything I said. I called to reschedule appointments, complained here and there about my personal life, even asked last minute to change my rehearsal dinner dress. Yet no complaints or extra charges for those hours of me on the phone. Thanks to Jackie and her staffs, I survived and happily married.

Second, the Wedding Story knows it all. As you can see above, I had my flowers & decoration by other vendors who had personal relationships with either me or my mom. Well, things happen at the last minute and I had to look for another vendor to do my flowers at affordable price. Of course, I was stressed and called Jackie for help. She was able to give me a list of affordable florists who are in the area and I had beautiful flowers for my wedding! I've asked millions of questions and they answered it ALL.

Third, the Wedding Story has beautiful dress and jewelry selections for different body types. I have a long torso so I was concerned about picking out the dress. Well, I have to say it took us about 2 hours trying on different dresses but found the one that I got complimented by every guest on my wedding day. It was one of a kind and all loved it!

I can go on and brag my experiences with the Wedding Story here but you should definitely make an appointment for a consultation. I would do another events with the Wedding Story in the future. Highly recommend this vendor for not just the wedding but other events including Baby's 1st year birthday, anniversary, and parent's birthdays, and more.

We have planned and done our wedding in just a month. And Wedding Story staff helped us a lot with picking the right style of perfect looking gown, with an perfect pricing. We have rented a gown, and were expecting a gown only, and guess what the gown came with all the accessories, even with the ear rings. On top of that, staff was very helpful and so friendly. We have actually learned at the place that they do everything from photography to make up to venue arrangement. It is an awesome one stop shop for a wedding. All in all, we strongly recommend Wedding Story to any couple preparing for a wedding.

Jackie and her team were amazing for our wedding. It's hard to put into words what Wedding Story did for us. Jackie really made our dream wedding come to life in the budget we proposed to her. Jackie was amazing. She really took my ideas for my wedding and transformed them into something I never would have imagined. She took away 90% of the wedding stress. We booked most of the vendors through her so that made it easy, but there's no pressure to do so. You easily can bring in your own vendors. We met with her frequently and she was always available via email or text. She had amazing recommendations and was very organized. She is so talented. I was able to enjoy my wedding day as Jackie took care of everything. The day of the wedding I realized my bustle of my dress was too long, Jackie had her team quickly adjust it and off to the reception I went! She made the wedding perfect! I was so pleased with everything...from the help with the ceremony to the breath-taking reception. Jackie and her team saved us so much money and time by finding us invitations that were almost identical to the ones we found elsewhere, among other things. Her and her team put together all of the invitations for us by hand so we didn't have to. She set up the dessert table and all the reception decor even better than I could imagine. I just told her what I wanted and she went to town! She is incredible and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a planner. We would not have been able to have our big day without Jackie and her team!!

Our experience with Jackie and her staffs was beyond perfect. Wedding Story is a very convenient one-stop wedding shop and we got most of our stuff done through Wedding Story (full planning, dress, tux, make-up/hair, DJ/MC, Photo, Video, flowers, Pae-Baek (Korean traditional ceremony) and cake).

Jackie was amazing and very helpful from start to finish. She was always available when I had questions (via email/text...etc.) and very prompt at responding. Also, I really appreciated that she helped with budget formulation and offered a lot of tips and new ideas based on her experience. Her service was exceptional on the day of the wedding as well. Everything went seamlessly and as planned. Later I found out that there were unexpected issues that I was not aware of (guests showing up without rsvp...etc.) but Jackie and her team took care of it without me knowing. Throughout the entire day, I did not have to worry about a thing and I could just enjoy every moment of our special day. Also, we planned for an outdoor ceremony but it rained in the morning. Jackie constantly checked the weather and waited until the last minute. I really appreciated this because she could just simply set it up inside rather than waiting and rushing to set things up at the last minute. But she knew how much I wanted to have an outdoor ceremony and waited for me. Around 3 pm, rain finally stopped and Jackie set up the ceremony outside quickly. Everything was perfect.

Also, Wedding Story has a large selection of high quality wedding dress and tux at affordable price. The staff even altered the tuxedo pants several times until the fit is exactly right.

Overall, our wedding turned out to be perfect and we received so many compliments on our wedding. This was all possible because of Jackie and her professional coordinator team. I highly recommend Wedding Story to any brides in DC metro area. Their service was worth every $$$.

I cannot stress enough how crucial Jackie was to our wedding. I had planned on not having a wedding planner, since I had oversimplified the whole process and doubted how hard it really could be. I am so glad I didn't go down this route and went with Wedding Story instead. I wanted the least stress possible in wedding planning, and Jackie picked everything up for me. She was the point of contact for all my vendors, of which she has a large network, and organized everything from beginning to end. She was very responsive, understood what I wanted, made great suggestions, and executed everything very efficiently and very well. She knows how a wedding works and smooths out all the kinks before and also during the event. She goes out of her way to do extra. On the day of the wedding, Jackie did hair, organized the makeup, vendors, setup, and seemed to be everywhere with everyone (and I'm sure she did a lot more behind the scenes that I don't even know about). When I discovered that I hadn't gotten the ribbon for my reception dress back from my dry cleaner's, Jackie took off the ribbon from my bouquet, ironed it out, and made an impromptu (but lovely) ribbon for my gown. She works quickly, has a lot of energy, and has good taste. Her staff is also super helpful and friendly. Additionally, if you choose to do a Korean traditional ceremony (paebak), Jackie and her staff will do very well. Really and truly a lifesaver.

A few points - I LOVED the florist Jackie recommended (Christine Chung): she does beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres, and everything else (including floral archway for my outdoor ceremony). Artistic and not at all tacky. Second, I didn't find a wedding dress with Jackie, but all the men got classy tuxes from her that fit them great. Third - the harpist Jackie recommended (Kate Rogers?) is also amazing.

Whether you're hands-off with set tastes like me or hands-on and involved, Jackie will save your life. Go with her - you won't regret it!

I had a wonderful experience having Jackie as a wedding planner. She helped me with so many details and made sure that it was a gorgeous looking wedding reception. She was also flexible and checked in with me regularly about any changes that needed to happen. She helped negotiate an affordable and beautiful venue, and also provided all the arrangements for hair, makeup, dress, cake, dj, etc! These services were all top notch and we received many compliments on them. She could not have been more on top of things, and made sure that on our wedding day we were able to relax, have all our questions and problems addressed immediately, and actually remember the day. She provided true value for money as her advice likely saved us money as she rightly recommended what to focus our budget on, and what was not important.

One of the best in the DC/Alexandria Area. Bilingual in English and Korean. Provided us with almost all of the things we needed for our wonderful wedding, and was willing to listen to our opinions and integrate them into the wedding for a personal touch. Things were a bit fast, but it was a good memory, which is all we could really ask for from a wedding :)

It was great value, a great day, and we'll be letting other people know about this planner if they are Korean Americans and looking to have a wedding that keeps a little of tradition from both sides (and we even had a hint of Polish in it too!)
