Amazing Wedding Planner- blew our expectations out of the water!
Gems and Joy did an absolutely amazing job coordinating our wedding at IMU. For a day of coordinator, I feel that Denise went above and beyond! I am definitely a last minute planner but she helped keep me more on task with the months and weeks leading up to the big day. As organized as I thought I was, there were definitely several things I hadn't considered or planned for. I was a lot more at ease on the day of our wedding knowing that Denise was running the show. I had no idea how the months of planning would come together but when I walked into the ballroom- WOW! She really did an amazing job coordinating all our vendors and I had very few questions coming at me the day of. I would VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND Gems and Joy for anybody's wedding. And in hindsight, I wish I would have had her do more than just the day of coordinating.Sent on 10/05/2019

We had a great experience with Gems & Joy
Denise was a true GEM to work with :) She took so much of the stress out of our big day. What a relief to have someone help coordinate all the events that day. She was responsive to all my questions and knew just what to ask and do!Sent on 06/20/2019
