Growing up in such a magical setting made it quite easy to obsess over weddings. What can I say? I just LOVE love! However, it wasn’t until I moved to Nashville, TN in 2016 that I discovered my passion as a wedding planner.

Hi! My name is Jess Hopkins, owner and founder of Say Yes With Jess Weddings. Born just outside of beautiful Savannah, GA and raised in mountainesque Knoxville, TN, I have deep country roots and muddy water running through my veins. 

Momma to two, detail fanatic, & world's best third wheel! 

Hi! I’m jess!


I started working as a lead planner with an event planning company and completely fell in love with the process. The love stories, the decorations, the breathtaking moments….I couldn’t get enough! Soon after, I married my amazing husband Cody and absolutely adored planning my own wedding. Not only did I find the love of my life, I also found my passion! 

Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

Let's add wife and mom to the many hats I wear daily! My husband Cody and I have been married since 2017 and we have two very rowdy daughters, Alaina and Scarlet, who rarely let us sit down! Fair warning, if you choose me as your wedding planner I will talk about these three a lot! My family is my everything, and I wouldn’t be doing this without their love and support. I absolutely love my job, but my #1 will always be these hooligans.
