    I couldn't have done it without Gems and Joy.

    Denise and Julie were just the most amazing people in the world to work with and my dream wedding would not have happened without them. Denise went above and beyond to make my day stress-free and perfect. She is absolutely on top of everything from the timeline to the tiny details. Not only is she the most amazing wedding planner, but she is just so sweet and kind and she will make you feel so special. During the planning process, she helped me to navigate the chaos of having to postpone my wedding due to COVID-19 when I was ready to give up on the whole thing entirely. Throughout the entire day, she was always right there next to me with a calming smile that made me know that everything was taken care of. I am so beyond thankful for her and I would recommend her to every single bride.

    A dream planner for “corona brides”

    Denise has been so great to work with thus far!! We hired her for our November 2020 wedding in January and then coronavirus hit. After dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety, my fiancé and I made the decision to postpone our big wedding and do a small wedding on our original 2020 date. Denise was so supportive and helpful right away and willing to answer any questions and give recommendations during an unprecedented situation. It’s really great knowing she is there FOR YOU and wants to do what she can. We’re so excited she’ll be there at our big wedding that we’ll have waited so long for!
