Jody CoxFounderAn Affair To Remember | Styled + Staged STL

With a background in marketing, PR and events, Jody began her entrepreneurial debut in 2009 by offering marketing-focused event services and small business marketing consulting. Her sister business, An Affair To Remember, offered wedding planning and design services. After the first full wedding season in 2010, it was clear the direction the business was taking. Brides were eager for someone to help them bring the vision they had in their minds to life. In the days before Pinterest, it was even more of a challenge – think pages of magazine clippings, dress and paint swatches, and any other inspiration they could find to help define their wedding style. It was (and is still often) overwhelming for brides to make sense of it all. With a keen eye for color, flower selection, texture and, most importantly, “the big picture”, Jody takes those inspirational elements and creates a comprehensive design that truly brings to life the dream wedding each bride or groom envisions. Her favorite part of the job is two-fold, “Our consultation process is pretty interactive. My favorite part is toward the end where we get to ‘play’. We layer linens, bring in various containers, light candles, mock up florals and more. The look of excitement on my clients’ faces when they start to see their vision take shape is hands down the best part. This is only magnified when they leave our studio saying how stress-free they feel and how we just ‘get their vision’. When we exceed their expectations on one of the most important days of their life, it makes all the hard work worth it. What we do is truly a labor of love in the best kind of way.”
