About Jenelle

I am Jenelle McDonald, the owner and lead designer of Pumpernickel Planning. I love being able to share in the love of two people and I am blessed to work with wonderful couples every week!

I am based out of The Colony, TX and have been in love with all things wedding since 2007! For years, I worked routinely as an assistant for other planners and as a venue coordinator. I guess you could say it was my “weekend job” while I worked full time in corporate events. In corporate, I was responsible for managing any size of event from small company parties to large national conferences hosting 5000+ attendees to destination retreats.

However, nothing competes with the beauty and joy of weddings. After planning my own wedding without even a day of coordinator, it made me realize how vital the extra support was! I decided no bride needs to manage the most important day of her life alone. Your wedding should be a day of relaxing, pampering and loving. With that in mind, I went back to pursuing my passion in 2016 and founded Pumpernickel Planning a year later.

Wedding planning is so much more than picking out colors and deciding on flowers. It’s about two people in love who want to share it with those they love. My best advice is to find someone to take care of those little details like flowers and timelines so that you can focus each other and enjoy your engagement. I love meeting with couples and developing a connection with them; but if we’re not a good fit, I’m happy to refer you to another planner who matches your vision more closely. As long as at the end of the day, you’re matched with someone, that’s what matters.
