Key ingredient for the magical day!
We initially were not too sure about hiring a wedding organizer and were doubtful how helpful the role could be, but Jocelyn was one of our best decisions we made in preparation for the wedding! She was such a key person who made the wedding day itself so joyful and stressfree for the bride and groom. Jocelyn managed and decorated the wedding as if she did it for her own family member. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time on the day and was such an easy person to work with. There were so many instances that she made us feel that our wedding wouldn't be as lovely without her help. A few of my favorites areSent on 11/10/2019
- Jocelyn saw my dress is way too long and would be difficult for me to walk around / dance. She somehow managed to find a sewing kit and sewed my dress in a perfect way! Still pretty and much more comfortable to be walking around with
- Jocelyn paid great attention to detail. She prepared color books for the kid's table. Not only this made the kids very happy, the parents had more time to enjoy the dinner
- Jocelyn was extremely patient with our changes and demand. There were many changes that happened a few days just before the wedding. Not only Jocelyn was calm throughout those times (which was super helpful!), she would also help us find solutions for all.
I couldn't recommend Jocelyn enough! She really has the talent to turn your wedding into such a magical day! Thank you Jocelyn!!

Jocelyn did an absolutely amazing job!
Thank you so much for all that you did to make my daughter’s wedding day so special. Every planning step lead to an amazing event which reflected the beauty of marriage and we couldn’t have done it without you! I would recommend anyone getting married to have Jocelyn and her company work for you!Sent on 07/03/2019

Amazing wedding day with Jocelyn by my side!
I would absolutely recommend Jocelyn to anyone! With the day of event coordinator, she was there for the full day and made it run so smoothly. She met a couple times before hand along with the rehearsal, and without her we would have been lost. She helped meet other vendors throughout the day, be where I couldn't be (check on the men), and see that our desserts and reception were set and ready when everyone arrived! She was easy to communicate with, understood my vision, and worked great with the whole wedding party, especially my younger family members. I first questioned having help, but every penny was completely worth it. So glad we had her :)Sent on 10/20/2019
