A Complete Joy Working with Donna of Creative Joy Events!

My husband, Logan, and I got married in October 2021. One of the best decisions that we made was to hire Donna Radford of Creative Joy Events as our wedding coordinator. From the beginning, Donna was a positive guiding presence as we navigated planning a wedding during a pandemic. We soon began to look forward to our regular check-ins with Donna, knowing that she would patiently listen to all our concerns, answer our questions, and provide us with wonderful advice. Due to her warm and positive personality, working with Donna felt like planning an event with a close friend.

Donna also planned the florals and décor for our wedding. During planning sessions, she got to know our style and helped to establish a budget. A few weeks later she sent a design proposal of how each space would look and included a detailed spreadsheet outlining the cost of the various items. Not only were we pleasantly surprised that she came in under budget, but we were also very impressed that she perfectly captured our vision for our decorations. Truly, we didn’t change a thing. During dinner at the reception, I looked out at all our guests, turned to my husband, and said, “This is perfect. This is exactly what I had hoped everything would look like.”

Our wedding was unique in that we had three different venues – one each for the ceremony, dinner, and dancing. Planning décor for three spaces and wrangling guests from one space to the next required a great deal of planning and organization. With Donna’s expertise, the wedding seamlessly flowed from one venue to the next. The greatest gift that Donna gave us was the ability for my husband and I (two very Type-A people) to not have to worry about any of the logistics. We completely trusted Donna and her team to execute all the plans which allowed us to be fully present to enjoy our special day.

Creative Joy is the perfect name for this company. Not only was our wedding a joyful occasion but working with and getting to know Donna was an absolute joy. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming but knowing that we had a wedding coordinator on our team who was organized, thoughtful, kind, and professional made the process fun and less stressful.

If you’re planning a wedding or event in the near future, I can’t encourage you enough to work with Donna Radford of Creative Joy Events.

Creative Joy Solutions made our wedding experience perfect!

Donna and Creative Joy Solutions were amazing. They took care of all the details from beginning to end. They made our day so special , and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Donna even found an iron to iron my shirt just hours before the ceremony began!! She made sure everything was perfect the day of the ceremony! We couldn't have made this happen without them! Donna is such a pleasure to work with and made the experience of planning a wedding so enjoyable!

Fantastic! Exceptional!

Donna and her Husband were great to work with. We had to reschedule our wedding just two weeks prior to the event. Donna stuck with us for two years until we could reschedule. She was a saint. We had so many questions and she answered everyone. Fast response everytime. We could not be happier with everything she did for us.

I chose to be a part of the wedding/event industry because I love being able to see someone's vision for a day become a reality. Having the opportunity to make someone's dream event happen is an awesome experience and it's something that I have a passion for. At the end of the day, if the client is happy and has had their vision brought to life, I've done my job.
