This week we will be introducing ourselves to the world...kidding! We thought it would be fun to give you the low down on our two senior planners, Jayme and Katie.
First up is our principal and planner…
Principal | Planner
When Jayme began the business, formerly known as Beyond Elegant Events in 2004, she was anxious to combine her knowledge of project and budget management with her experience in the wedding industry. From working at several floral studios as well as operating as a bridal consultant, Jayme’s passion is for all things planning, organizing, and making things pretty. While her career began in the technology world working for leading corporations such as Berbee/CDW and Alliant Energy, it was her love for creativity in conjunction with her impeccable organizational skills, which eventually led her to the event industry.
Jayme handles each wedding as if it were her own. She understands how important it is for each and every client to sit back and cherish every moment on their wedding day.

As a mother of two children and one very spoiled “fur baby,” Jayme is very adept at multitasking and handling any issue that might arise on the special day. In July 2017, Jayme and her husband, Dean, DWC’s CIO and heavy lifter, will celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary (the year of lace)!
Jayme thrives on providing personal attention to each and every client. This boutique approach is what makes DWC unique. As principal, Jayme strives to make you a part of the Darling Family!
Fun Facts about Jayme:
Hobbies: Knitting, crafting, and experimenting with make-up
TV vs. Reading: Reading all the way - she always has a book with her!
Dog vs. Cat: Both, but since her husband and daughter are both allergic to cats, she has small fluffy dogs who will cuddle with her.
Guilty Pleasures: Watching vlogs and beauty gurus on YouTube, cute office products (Target!), and anything chocolate!
Family: Jayme and Katie are actually cousins. They are part of a large family headed by Dean and Donna who recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.
