The best and kindest planners in the business!!

We got married in June and had an amazing experience working with Jackie, Cookie, and Kaylin at About Joy — we really couldn’t have pulled it off without them and they truly live up to their joyful name!! They were each creative, attentive, and took every detail into account when we were planning. Their creativity and attention to detail were key for communicating about our complex, multi-event wedding in Oakland. As soon as we signed with them, they helped us hire all our other major vendors, making sure we got to work with their (and now our!) favorite people during the extra busy summer 2022 wedding season. And not a day went by in the final weeks of preparations that we didn’t say to each other “thank goodness we hired About Joy.” We cannot recommend About Joy strongly enough for your upcoming wedding!

Should've hired sooner!

My husband and I were struggling so much until we worked with Jackie. We regret not finding her sooner since she was such a big stress reliever for us! She had a wonderful and positive attitude in helping us figure out everything we needed and wanted for our wedding.

We were so excited to see it all come together. Unfortunately 2 weeks before the scheduled date, San Francisco had put restrictions in place due to COVID-19. Our wedding was cancelled. We weren't able to see the wedding we were eagerly looking forward to and that Jackie had worked so hard on to help us make that happen.

Once COVID-19 stuff dies down enough to begin planning smaller gatherings to celebrate, I am so grateful we can count on Jackie and Cookie to help. We would be so lost without them!

Genuinely wonderful wedding coordinators

Jackie has been nothing short of wonderful during our entire time working with her. About 2 months before our wedding, my partner and I reached out to Jackie to ask about day-of-coordination and quickly recognized that she was the coordinator we wanted. Jackie was super-fast at communicating, very well-organized, and able to help us plan out everything we needed! Even though we only hired her for day-of-coordination, she helped us with tons of logistics during the full two months leading up to the wedding including setting us up with a spectacular florist, finding a stylist and make-up artist, coordinating with vendors, and getting final logistics planned for the day. She was a huge lifesaver and our wedding wouldn't have been nearly as smooth and fun without her.

For the day-of-coordination, not only did Jackie and Cookie make everything seamless and easy for my partner and I, but they also made everything in our wedding look absolutely stunning. They managed everything from setting up the flowers and coordinating with the caterers on timing to figuring out the layout for ceremony and handling the rearrangement of the backyard for the reception (see attached photos).

Honestly, my partner and I have been so happy with how the day went and that's in no small part due to the amazing work from About Joy events. We 1000% recommend hiring them :)
