Angel On Earth!
To say that Joan was a Godsend is an understatement! She is solely responsible for my sanity! Imagine not only planning a wedding from out-of-state while recently starting a new demanding job, but also having a global pandemic dumped on top of it! That's the backdrop for our August 15th wedding. From my first conversation with Joan, I could tell that she was a kind and sweet soul. She assured me that planning a wedding from out-of-town would not be an issue for her. Her pricing was reasonable (and looking back, probably a steal given all the work she did) and she even offered a nice discount when booking through WeddingWire. Our first in-person meet up was fantastic as she was able to arrange for meetings with ALL the major vendors and schedule a tour of the venue. As stated, this was extremely helpful and efficient because I did live in another state so meeting time was limited. From the very beginning she made it clear that she was willing to work within whatever budget we were comfortable with and proved this when she went above and beyond to find more cost-sensitive vendors when initial ones were out of our budget. She is extremely attentive to details and thought of all kinds of things that only an expert in the field of weddings would even consider. I could always easily contact her via text or email and she was always willing to hear my ideas, review images and help to execute my vision. To say that she is organized is an understatement. She was an excellent record keeper, maintaining spreadsheets and providing diagrams and timeline handouts for vendors and the wedding party. Although an extremely stressful time in anyone's life, COVID definitely added some additional twists and turns that we never anticipated but with her help, we were able to navigate each hurdle. Anything that I needed handled was done so expeditiously. My day went perfectly, the theme came together just as I imagined and I would definitely recommend her services. As icing on the cake, the weather all week predicted a high probability of rain, specifically at the time of the ceremony, however there wasn't a drop of rain from the time we started the ceremony to the time we finished. I'd like to think Joan had a little talk with God for that one haha. I highly recommend her services for anyone looking for an experienced, effective, enthusiastic planner who will make your dreams come true!Sent on 08/25/2020
Joan Day Weddings's reply:Thank you, Nykole. It was my pleasure to be a part of your wedding planning activities and bringing it to fruition on your big day! The challenges of COVID-19 made for some unexpected changes, but we pulled through! You were incredible to work with being that you were ultra responsive and on top of everything. I enjoyed getting to know you and Jimmy, and meet all of your family and friends. Thanks, again, for putting your faith in my team, and for the kind review. Warmest thanks, Joan

I am so thankful I found Joan to work with to help finalize my wedding planning. Joan helped me tie up loose ends in the final month before my wedding and was present throughout my wedding weekend coordinating the festivities. My wedding was in early January so most of my final plans and confirmations with vendors were due during the height of the holiday season. Joan is extremely organized and made sure everything was taken care of with as little stress on me as possible. The same is true for my wedding day--Joan ensured that my vision came to life and all went smoothly. Joan is kind, organized, and wonderful to work with. My wedding (and my sanity!) would not have been the same without her!Sent on 06/03/2020

Really sweet and dedicated.
Joan made everything fall into place. She made sure that everyone was where they were supposed to be, that my vendors knew what to do, and that my reception venue looked elegant. She has a very sweet, willing-to-accommodate personality. Would recommend to future brides.Sent on 12/23/2019
