WHO IS THE WEDDING WHISPERER
An Atlanta native and owner/ founder of J. Ladson Weddings (a full-service wedding experience company) Jade Ladson has been in the wedding/event planning game for 15 plus years. Her love of this fascinating trade started began with planning spectacular themed events for close family and friends and has continued to grow over the years.

The success of J. Ladson Weddings has continued to grow throughout the years, and a large part of that success is due to Jade’s career choice now becoming second nature. As the event planning industry continues to grow in leaps and bounds, Jade finds that all aspects of this challenging field still speak to her, even after years spent within it. Let’s find out a little more about one of Atlanta’s top event/ wedding planners.
What separates J. Ladson Weddings within a field that constantly grows every day, if not every minute?
Each client gets the same level of customer service no matter how big or small. Even if I’m not the lead planner on the event. I still make sure that I have a face to face with each client and monthly meetings with
the lead planner on the event to stay abreast of all the details.
What about the field of wedding/ event planning speaks to you after all of your years spent in the field?
I fell head over heels in love with the moments of pure joy expressed at weddings. But, more than anything, I
loved that magical moment when I help the bride adjust her train right before she makes her grand entrance. Whether I was touching up lip gloss, pinning boutonnières or bustling a big, fancy gown, I found I
was at my best ensuring my bride’s big day was everything she dreamed it would be.
