Amazing! Joyfully joined was fabulous!

We found Mary, with Joyfully Joined events, from the recommended vendor list from our venue. From the first call we had, she was friendly, warm and joyful! We were a 2020 wedding that had to delay until 2021, and Mary helped keep us sane during this crazy time, providing us with insight during uncertain times, and listening as I cried not sure what to do, before making the decision to postpone.

Once we knew things were a go for 2021, Mary was on it! She provided us with great check-lists of things to do on our end and what she was handling. Many of our vendors were already booked before we engaged with Mary and I LOVED their response when we said we'd booked Joyfully Joined "Oh Mary! She's awesome, your event is going to run like clockwork." On the flip side, I loved Mary's reaction when she heard who we booked for our catering and DJ and how excited she was to work with them. It was reassuring to see how connected the Central Coast wedding vendors were - familiar with each other, having worked previous events together, and that they all seemed to really like each other.

Mary was great getting our group together to focus during the rehearsal and laughing at some of our silly requests. Day of, if there was a crisis, issue or question, Mary was on it. She allowed us to be present and enjoy the moment, without worrying about the little things. We appreciated that Mary made sure we took a few minutes just the two of us after our ceremony to take it all in before going out to celebrate with friends and family.

She made sure that we had time to eat and enjoy the delicious meal, and had some leftovers boxed up for later that night.
Friendly, warm and on top of things, Mary made our day so much easier and truly didn't miss a beat.

Having Mary, and Joyfully Joined, be part of our special day, is something we'll look back on fondly for years. She is a gem and all couples would be lucky to have someone like her coordinate their wedding. Thank you Mary!!

How does anyone get married without Mary?! She was absolutely crucial. We hired her for coordination and it was the best decision. She handled everything with grace, professionalism, and a meticulous eye. Her knowledge of weddings and the SLO area are a huge asset and made us consider things we would have overlooked. If you are looking for a planner, look no further!!

We hired Mary to coordinate the day of our wedding. Mary was amazing!! She had so much energy and she was excited to assist me in any way she could. Mary and her assistant were both running around early in the morning setting up decor and meeting with vendors. She checked in on me throughout the day making sure we had everything we needed. She kept everything on time and organized without hovering or stressing out guests. She even checked in on my parents and made sure they were able to see all of the special moments of the day. I would highly recommend Mary for all of your wedding needs!!

I worked with Mary at the Health wedding in Avila Beach and she was amazing. As a photographer I'm always trying my best to stay on time and know what's coming up next. She and I worked hand in hand and she did an amazing job communicating the timeline to me. She was well organized and always had a warm smile on her face. I would recommend her to any of my brides! -Stefanie Stefanie Elizabeth Photography
