Best Planner Ever!
Joan Day did such an amazing job planning our wedding. I know it’s a cliché thing to say, but we truly couldn’t of done it without her. My wedding date was placed right in the middle of Andrew being stationed over 1,000 miles away & my final semester of nursing school. Joan took all the weight off and made the planning process so fun and easy. She was very responsive at all times and adjusted things depending on my husband and I’s preference - even at the last minute! The day of the wedding, she was a lifesaver. She kept everything timely yet flexible. I remember one mom specifically when the DJ was calling for the bouquet toss and I started running to grab my throw bouquet but Joan was right there when I turned around with it. I highly recommend Joan for everybody! She truly helped our day be the best that it could.Sent on 03/27/2019

Joan acted as my "Day of" wedding coordinator.
Hiring Joan was the single best decision I made during the entire planning process. My parents and I wanted to make the wedding day as stress free as possible and Joan made it happen. Because of her, my family and I were not frantically setting out linens, placing decor, or panicking about contacting vendors. The last thing any bride and her family wants to be doing on the wedding day is worrying about "Who will light the candles?" "Where are the sparklers?" "Are the tablecloths creased?" "Where's the cake serving set?" etc etc. About 1-2 months prior to the wedding, Joan and I began working more closely together and met/spoke several times to nail down a timeline and coordinate all the moving pieces. Planning a wedding is a unique experience, something that I've never done before and will never do again...aka I had no idea what I was doing! Joan smoothed out all of the details and her years of experience made me feel confident. And even more importantly, made my mother feel relaxed and confident! Joan always had an answer for even my most insignificant and meticulous questions. My favorite analogy for her personality and demeanor can be summarized as such: speaking to Joan feels like having a nice glass of wine at the end of the day! What else could a bride ask for?Sent on 01/20/2019
Joan Day Weddings's reply:Thank you so much, Claire! What a lovely and enjoyable morning to receive your review of my services. Your family was awesome, kind and generous, which made my job not feel like work at all. I enjoyed our meetings, checking over vendor details, answering your questions, texting back and forth, and attending 701 Whaley's 10-year celebration together. Weddings don't need to be stressful. The experience is meant to be spiritual, God-loving, and a celebration of a beautiful marriage. You and your husband, Cole, reflected a meaningful commitment, and shared the experience with your families and friends. The event was such a beautiful experience for all present. Tim and I enjoyed being included in your Rehearsal Dinner too. Your selections made for one gorgeous ceremony and reception. Hummingbird cake is now my favorite too (tell Cole thank you for introducing us to it). And your Grandmother's delicious homemade wedding cake was the best I have ever had. So much fun to see three generations of strong, God-loving women decorating and cutting cake to share. Your families truly made us feel like we'd become part of it. Gracious, giving, loving, and God-like, ... I just can't find the words to describe what an incredible young lady you are and what a fine young man Cole is. I know that God will bless you with many years of happiness.
