Joan was absolutely a treat to work with as we planned a 60th birthday party for 150 guests in our backyard. From the first meeting, when we talked concepts, to the day after the party, when she returned to our property to make sure it was returned to pristine condition, Joan was extremely professional and focused on making sure that this would be a first class event. She helped us with th logistics of what ended up being three live bands, staging, tents, catering, alcohol, parking, bathrooms, invites, cake, and all the small things that make an event special.Sent on 08/10/2017
Leading up to the event Joan came over every few weeks to provide us with progress reports and ask questions to make sure the event was being planned to our specifications. We never had to worry that she did not understand what we wanted and she delivered everything she promised.
On the days just before the event, Joan went through all of the details and logistics. All of this detailed prep was apparent during the event itself. We stayed on schedule; our guests had a blast and we were able to enjoy the party ourselves without having to worry about anything.
First class all the way! Worth every penny and more! We would not hesitate to recommend Joan to anyone planning a party for any occasion. Thank you Joan and the entire crew at First Impressions!

We were married this past Saturday(June 17th) in our backyard. Throwing a huge event at your home can be daunting. Joan is detail oriented, professional & knows the best vendors. We did not want a formal sit down dinner or a buffet. My husband is a foodie and wanted the best of the best. We gave her a vision and she implemented it beyond our expectations. Friends and family kept stating you must be so busy with planning and I can honestly say, no, Joan is handling it all. The only thing we had to do was say yes or no to suggestions. I had issues with my dress and Joan was right there with me talking to the store, providing moral support and suggestions.Sent on 06/19/2017
I am extremely particular about service. All the vendors she suggested were amazingly caring, professional and wanted us to have the most beautiful day. Everything was done for the wedding months before. Wedding day was stress free, honestly and truly. I was not nervous or concerned about anything except the weather and Joan had a contingency plan for that. This was not an easy wedding to plan, the way we wanted the food, the music and we could not fit inside the house, so it all had to be done outside.
She turned our backyard into a fairytale wedding. Even the tent company was impressed. The night was not a typical boring wedding. We danced and ate throughout the evening. Different stations of food opened throughout the evening which created a fun atmosphere and nobody wanted to go home. To say that the night was perfect is an understatement. It was magical, perfect, professional, touching and beautiful. All Joan! Our guests all said this was the best wedding they have ever been to in their lives (and we are not a young crowd). If you have Joan as your event planner you will have a stress free event, professionally and beautifully handled (just let her take the lead). I cannot recommend her enough. From the bottom of we cannot thank Joan enough for this beautiful evening.

Joan and her team at First Impressions were extremely helpful for us planning our wedding. We had a 150 person backyard wedding where we had to do a lot of work on our own. There is no way we could have pulled it off without Joan. She has a vast amount of experience and is completely professional in her work. She was able to adapt to the specific needs of our wedding and offer ideas and insights as well as make us aware of things we had not thought of that were vital to an outdoor backyard DIY wedding. We really felt that Joan and her team went above and beyond what was expected. They also expected the unexpected and put out fires before they became problems. We highly recommend Joan and first impressions.Sent on 10/31/2016
