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!!

Day of Coordination was AMAZING and everything we needed!
My husband and I hired Jocelyn to coordinate our wedding (day of coordination) and it was the BEST decision we made. Jocelyn took the what ifs and stresses of the day off of our shoulders. We didn't have a worry in the world!!! She helped with every single detail of the day (picking up donuts, coordinating the day, taking down all the decorations, holding onto all my tip envelopes and passing them out at the end) AND she got our little flower girls to go down the aisle even when we didn't know if it would happen. Jocelyn also created a day of timeline and communicated with all of our vendors which was a huge help and another thing we didn't have to worry about. All in all Jocelyn is amazing! She is very professional and you also know that she truly cares about how your big day goes! Thank you so much Jocelyn! I will be recommending you to all of my friends!Sent on 11/26/2019

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
