Pocketful of Sunshine Event Design | Columbia, SC Wedding Planner | Meet Jessica
Meet Jessica

Hi, I’m Jessica McDaniel, the Owner & Creative Director of Pocketful of Sunshine Event Design. As a full-service wedding planner in Columbia, SC, I help couples just like you bring every facet of their wedding vision to life. Call me your 'wedding whisperer.' 

What are your must-have wedding elements? What are the parts that stress you out the most? I want to hear everything so we can craft a day that exceeds your wildest imagination. 

Since I'm positive we'll end up being great friends over the course of planning your wedding, let's get to know one another! 

I fell in love with wedding planning when my sister was planning her wedding over a decade ago. The colors, the flowers, the style of the wedding, all of it makes my heart sing! I started helping friends with their weddings, and soon the idea for Pocketful of Sunshine was born. 

Let All You Do Be Done In Love

My secret wish is to one day run a B&B in Tuscany.  I can often be found traveling back roads and soaking up the local history with my fiancé Jason. (We get lost on purpose sometimes, but that's our little secret, ok?) I ADORE Pinterest, Etsy, and SEC Football! 

1 Corinthians 16:18 says "let all that you do be done in love." This is a motto I strive to live for every day - not only in my wedding planning business, but in my personal life as well. I'm a firm believer that if you approach each day with a spirit of love, you will always succeed! 

Meeting new couples and helping them design the celebration of their dreams is a true source of inspiration for me.

Whether it’s a completely out of the box soiree you’re after, or a more understated affair, I'm excited to work hand-in-hand with you to plan and execute the day of your wildest dreams. 

We're ready to get started planning our dream wedding!
