I absolutely had a wonderful experience working with Joyous Events. Their services were great, they were extremely professional, responsive and we felt valued as a client. Our wedding was beautiful and will always be memorable thanks to the creative decor and floral designs from Joyous Events.

Joyous Event provided the design and decorations for my daughter's wedding at Herrington on the Bay. Everything was BEAUTIFUL! The CEO and assistants are well versed and experienced in the wedding and decorating Industry.

I cannot rave enough about working with Marilyn! I was very hesitant to plan a wedding, and decided to find a wedding coordinator. She held us (me) by the hand the whole way through seeing how I had very little vision beyond having a simple but elegant affair. I had dreams come true that I did not even realize I had!
Here is a non-exhaustive list of help and guidance she provided:
Kept us within budget
Recommended and then contacted vendors for save-the-dates/invitations, decorations, music/DJ, hair, makeup, photography, cake, etc. (They were also amazing vendors to work with!)
She always kept to her schedule and ours
Made sure we were up-to-date with everything and checking on our progress
Being available by phone, email, text, and in-person. Never worried about not hearing from her!

Basically, she understood what we were looking for and made excellent suggestions. She had everything under control from beginning to the wedding. She also made time to meet us even though I was in Richmond and my husband in Alexandria.

Just know that Marilyn has your best interests at heart and works hard to make sure your big day is gorgeous and painless. Thank you Marilyn for everything!
