Get to know your planner
Jacilyn has always dreamt of being a wedding planner. No, seriously! Growing up in a split home, the idea of marriage seemed so far away. It wasn't long into her adulthood that she began working in events and hospitality, where she felt like she was living out her dreams.
Her hospitality career started while working at Topgolf, where she learned the inner workings and behind the scenes of various kinds of events. In her 6 year span with them, she began her Topgolf career at one of the North Dallas locations and then relocated to the Denver market to be a part of a new venue! Throughout that time, she had the opportunity to receive top of the line sales training and the opportunity to learn firsthand from some of the best across the industry. Within the course of the 6 years, she got to plan hundreds, if not, thousands of events ranging from 12 to 1,000 guests at a time. Some of those events were social gatherings, liquor launches, multi-venue business meetings and even a wedding, yes, a wedding at Topgolf! Being a part of such a trend-setting and fast paced environment, there were always so many moving parts when it came to planning events. Dealing with multiple departments, various team members and third party vendors to bring these events full circle was just a small part of executing the game day plan.
After becoming a mother in 2017, Jacilyn and her family moved back to Texas to focus on the family they'd created. Quickly did she realize that it consisted of figuring out a comfortable work life balance that led to her starting her own planning business. Combining years of customer service training, sales training, event and timeline management - she transitioned her talents into the wedding industry where her passion had been all along. Taking things slowly, she underwent more training and had the opportunity to work with some of the DFW's most talented planners! 5 years later, Nothing But Love is continuously striving to improve client relations, couples' experiences and industry knowledge to show them why NBL does what we do.
"NBL truly is a representation of myself and those I surround myself with. We strive to remain professional while still being genuine and approachable. Handling the details with love and intent are an integral part of how we operate."
