Jessyca Perez Canal
Hi, I’m Jessyca, I am a 10-year marketing and economics specialist turned wedding planner, podcaster, wife and new mom of twins. I have helped many couples realize their wedding dreams and have helped them create countless memories that will last a lifetime. After years of experience in planning events for the Corporate World, I have taken my skills in timeline management, design work and my eye for detail to bring together a team of individuals who are committed to delivering excellence no matter how grand or intimate the occasion.
It is no secret how much I love weddings and I am not ashamed to say I cry almost every time! My blood type is champagne and my pulse runs off music. As a Miami native, parties are my jam. Growing up, I was known for always bringing the FUN energy into every room and I am blessed to say that I have been able to turn that light hearted energy into a successful business . Life was simple when it was just me and my dog, Cosita, traveling, planning and partying but every night I would pray to expand our little family and one night I prayed for patience instead and the next day, I met my husband David. God and my angels have a funny sense of humor. Which only continues when we prayed to expand our family and got two little miracles instead of one. Case is, I am not asking anyone for anything anymore or at least anytime soon 🙂
