For today's engaged couples a wedding can be extremely overwhelming. It is no secret that the Wedding Planning Team you contract for your wedding is responsible for implementing every single arrangement of detail and design on the day of your wedding. Weddings are both very technical and administrative. Your skills must be strong in the areas of organization and communication, it takes a great amount of skill in all of these areas to produce and plan for you… the wedding of your dreams. 

This why it is very important that you contract a company with the years of experience in weddings and knowledge that are required to ensure your special day will run perfectly smooth and flawless. The goal of creating the perfect wedding can blind you to what is most important about the wedding day: Your Marriage.

About Jodie Noonan...


I have been planning weddings and events for over twenty five years. While training as a planner, you learn so much in the first ten years. However, it is not until that point that your events truly run absolutely seamless. Most importantly, a professional wedding company will eliminate any stress, save you from making costly mistakes and allow you much needed time to be with each other and your families during your engagement.

I want you to know that when you contract with Barefoot Beach Bride to plan your Ocean City MD beach wedding, we have taken years of experience from working with brides from the Bridal Shop to the Venue.  I have created Pre-Designed wedding packages to let you see what your ceremony and or reception will look like and take the guess work out of trying to invasion the final day. 
You make a few basic decisions and leave the rest up to us. Yes that means put a lot of trust into our team!!!


   My background:  I worked in the automotive field for General Motors dealerships, starting with the service file room advancing my career into the Service Director, General motors mission is the best customer service possible. My department received top awards on customer satisfaction throughout the years.  I then decided it was time to move so I started designing ; weddings and events to home interiors.  Graduating from the Professional Wedding Institute for Wedding and Event Planners Thomas Education Direct.   Became a member of the highly accredited Association of Bridal Consultants. I then decided to open a Bridal Salon in 1997 to 2009.  I did not just sell the dress, I would help the bride design their wedding from coordinating colors, design to style.  I relocated and opened as a Bridal Mall, we reopened the Ballroom and started planning the receptions once again.   My love for designing came out and I was designing and planning weddings as well as running the Bridal Salon.  I realized that couples weren’t willing or were working with smaller budgets and just could not plan the wedding they wanted without breaking the bank, and most importantly have a trained coordinator to make sure the decorating and all the details were handled. I sat down and came up with wedding packages that would allow nice Pre-Designed beautiful wedding for an affordable price.  That is when Barefoot Bride was started.  In September 2014.  I sold the Bridal Salon and put 100% of my time into what is now Barefoot Beach Bride.

We have received many couples choice and local reconditions which we are honored for.  These come from local vendors, brides and yes friends that nominate us.  But when we were contacted by the International Destination and Honeymoon Magazine

in the early fall of 2018,  receiving recognized by the International Wedding and Honeymoon abroad Magazine as one of the 50 top wedding planners in the world, we were truly humbled and honored. In late fall we were then given the Rose Award, best wedding planer in the North East.  We hope you put your trust in us to plan your wedding!
