“I want to help people make their big day as effortless as possible, so they are able to enjoy this special time with family and friends!” –Gabi, SJP Intern
This season we have four SJP interns. They’re the behind-the-scenes girls who make sure each place setting is perfect and flower is in place. They light the candles, corral your bridesmaids and make sure grandpa gets his boutonniere.
Gabi Gothard is from Burnsville, Minnesota. She’s an Event Management major at Iowa State University. Maggie Selner, of Apple Valley, Minnesota, is a student at the University of St. Thomas. Whitney Anderson is from Edina, Minnesota and a Communication Studies major pursuing a Certificate in Event Planning from the University of Iowa. Rachel Wallace is from Blaine, Minnesota.
How are they liking it so far? Maggie said, “I love the fast pace environment [of wedding planning], the endless avenues of creativity and design, and working hard to bring perfection to someone’s special day.”

Amanda is a Farmington, Minnesota native and University of Iowa graduate. She’s been on the See Jane Plan team since 2016 and there’s no one I trust more to make your wedding magical (she even handled the day-of logistics for my own wedding!). Here she talks about what she loves about her job and why you don’t want your new sister-in-law calling the caterer…
What do you like most about being a planner?
I love to get to know each couple and their story and then produce an event that highlights the unique things about their relationship. Bring me your Pinterest boards, magazine cutouts, and Instagram saves, and I’ll help you design a truly unforgettable wedding!
What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned working for SJP?
If you don’t hire a planner and simply ask your friends and family to do things for you, then they are no longer guests – they’re working! Having a planner allows for family to enjoy themselves on your wedding day.
What’s your number one wedding planning tip?
Don’t get so focused on the wedding that you forget about the marriage. When you work with See Jane Plan, we will take care of all the wedding planning stress. Give your focus and attention to creating a marriage that lasts a lifetime.
A little about me – I grew up in Minnesota, but spent summers on my grandparents’ farm in Missouri, where I learned about hard work and southern hospitality. After graduating from the University of Missouri with a degree in Hospitality Management, I worked for several years in the hospitality industry. In 2015, I launched See Jane Plan!
I started See Jane Plan because I wanted to help people be more in the moment on the most important days of their life. Being a planner means I focus on making sure everything runs smoothly, so you can focus on enjoying the day.
I’ve planned everything from black tie events to backyard barbecues. I’ve helped brides plan the day they’ve been dreaming about since they were a little girl, and I’ve worked with couples who aren’t sure where to start. What matters most to me, is that in the end, it’s a day that feels like you.
In 2016, I married my college sweetheart Keric. We live in Minneapolis with our rescue dog Chili.
I hope this site is a resource to take the stress out of planning, so you can focus on what’s most important!
