Book Greater Joy!

Madeline was absolutely FANTASTIC. She is extremely organized and easy to work with. We had multiple meetings prior to her doing my day of coordination. She was in close contact with my vendors and kept everyone informed of timelines. If you’re considering having a coordinator, please do it. Having her working behind the scenes on our day eliminated so much stress. It made our day so easy and enjoyable. I couldn’t recommend her more.

The Perfect Wedding Planner

Madeline is the definition of the perfect wedding planner. My husband and I had no clue what we were getting into when planning a wedding. Madeline was able to take away all the confusion and stress that goes into the planning process. She came to every meeting with us, spoke up when she thought something was unfair, and ensured we were never overwhelmed. Madeline never made my husband or I feel dumb with any of the questions that we had for her. Madeline would come over to our home for meetings and give us three goals to achieve before our next meeting. This made everything incredibly manageable and obtainable. My husband, myself, and my mother fell in love with her. Thanks to Madeline we had the wedding of our dreams. I will forever recommend Greater Joy Events. In the words of Gail Hobin, "She is worth every penny!"

Greater Joy Events | Wedding Planning

Simply put: I cannot imagine the wedding planning process or our wedding day without having hired Greater Joy Events. Madeline is detail-oriented, organized and attentive. Because of Madeline, I was able to fully enjoy our wedding day and be present as a bride. We had several family members and friends compliment Madeline’s expertise as well. We truly did not have to worry about a thing throughout the wedding planning process, as well as the day of our wedding, and it because of Madeline that we can say that. Without hesitation, I strongly recommend hiring Greater Joy Events to ensure your wedding planning and wedding is a joyful event for all!
