Honestly I don't know how to describe how grateful I am for Joyce and her team, but I will try my best.
My now husband and I attended a friend's wedding in May 2018 which Joyce planned. The wedding was beautiful, organized and the couple seemed relaxed the entire evening. I did not know of Joyce's name until the couple posted their wedding photos on Facebook with a special thanks to their planner - Joyce. This led me to Joyce's business page. I was so impressed with all of her clients' glowing reviews which were all 5 stars. I then decided to reach out to Joyce to learn more about her services when at the time I was not even engaged. I then spoke to the couple whom married in May directly to hear from them, and both of them LOVED Joyce and her work. Knowing this assurance from someone I know, we decided to reach out to Joyce for an initial planning after we got engaged.
At the initial meeting, Joyce asked about our vision of the wedding, our wants, and needs. With a big family and church guest list, we intended to have 300 guests; however, our budget was quite low for this huge number. I was nervous about Joyce's reaction when she heard of the budget with this number of guests and whether we were being unrealistic. Joyce kept a calm composure although I knew the budget surprised her, never once she made us feel small. This was when I realized I wanted to hire her.
Upon the initial meeting, we decided to hire Joyce to be our planner. Before we even signed the contract, Joyce had already started to look for venues which would have the elements we wanted and could hold our guests number. Within the first week, Joyce already contacted multiple venues, compared their costs and services, so we could start to narrow down the list to start visiting. She was fast with the process. After 2 weeks, we were already visiting different venues, and of course at each one, my husband and I were already so trusting in Joyce that we let her ask all of the questions. She gave us a timeline to finish the tasks and reminded us along the way when the due date was getting close for each task. She broke down big tasks to smaller chunks, so we wouldn't feel overwhelmed with the process. She was always ahead, contacting and keeping in touch with photographers, makeup artist, florist, DJ, venue, etc. We felt at ease because we knew Joyce had covered all bases.
She was with us every step of the planning process, every vendor visit, and every email to vendors. As highly efficient as Joyce was, we never felt pressured by her with time or making decisions. She gave suggestions but always respected our decisions. Our decisions were based on her suggestions anyway because we trusted if she suggested something, it would be the best way to do it. She was always available through phone calls, texts, Facebook messages, etc. even at the latest hour of the night.
For 11 months of planning, I saw her as a friend. She was caring, kind, and always ready to do whatever it took to help take off the stress off my shoulder. The evening before our rehearsal, Joyce called me to ask if everything was okay and if there was anything that worried me. She reassured that she would take care of anything that rise up. I was so touched by her care, and I will always remember this special touch.
On the wedding day, everything ran smoothly with no hiccups. Guests couldn't stop raving about how beautiful and seamless the wedding was. My mom got phone calls at 6am the morning after the wedding because guests couldn't wait to tell her how much they loved the wedding!
All of the vendors love Joyce, and this speaks so much volume. The photographer whom has worked with Joyce in the past even mentioned to me, "I love it when Joyce is planning the wedding that I'm shooting for. She makes my life so much easier". The makeup artist told me Joyce is the best planner she has ever worked with even with the countless of weddings she has worked for. I couldn't help but smile knowing the best decision I made with this wedding (beside marrying my best friend) was to hire Joyce and her team to plan and run the show.
To any bride/groom who is considering a wedding planner: please allow yourself to get help from the best of the best.
Joyce, Phong and I will forever be grateful for you and your work for the past 11 months. We love you!Sent on 11/15/2019

Extraordinary service and thank you!
Joyce have gone above and beyond for the job in planning for our wedding. We are very impressed by her professionalism and vast experiences in wedding planning.Sent on 02/07/2020
Joyce is very creative. In our planning session, she would suggest many options for us to consider and elaborate on our ideas. After the discussion, she would consolidate all our ideas and tailor it to our style, making our dreams come true. With her past experiences with many other successful weddings, we could trust her suggestions. Her ideas are valuable, as she knows what will work best for our circumstances.
Joyce is also good at organizing and meeting deadlines. Throughout our planning, she reminded us about deadlines to sign contracts, make payments, shop for things, and contact specific people. With her, we never missed any important deadlines. She prepared a detailed to-do list for our wedding planning, so we knew what to focus on for each month/week towards our big day. Earlier in the planning, she already discussed with us a detailed timeline for our wedding day, and so we could plan ahead for any special arrangements for the day. We appreciate it very much that she responded to our questions and requests in a timely manner.
Having more than 10 years of experience, Joyce has developed many great connections in the wedding planning community. She has excellent knowledge about active vendors in the Atlanta area, and her recommendations of vendors for our wedding were all phenomenal.
We really appreciate very much for all the amazing work that Joyce has put in planning for our wedding, thank you!

It is a God's Blessing
If a good start of a successful marriage is a great wedding, then picking a great wedding planner is the key!Sent on 02/07/2020
When we picked our wedding date, even though there is only four months left, and we had no idea what to do, plus there were already so many things on our plate that we cannot take any more mess, we were not panic, since we have long heard enough from every friends about Joyce's reputation as a well organized, efficient, accurate and inspiring wedding planner.
Indeed, she had a detailed timeline, tailored and optimized to our situation, so that we could have the best position to make every decision. On one hand, she certainly has a passion about the wedding in every aspect, on the other hand she is also a calm and thoughtful advisor on achieving the goal under our budget, every time we turned to her, she can easily open our eyes and take us out from the mess.
Joyce totally knows the wedding from head to toe. Devil is in the details, and she knows how to catch every of them! She walked us through every details, from as big as selecting venue, find the dress and the wedding day logistics, to as small as adding a piece of music that we have not got time to think through, and we cannot find something better. Oh FYI, she is a musician. Why does God give so many great gifts to one person=) Maybe the answer is: to make our wedding so perfect? Basically in everything she manages, we can totally have peace, knowing she is in charge.
Oh by the way, Joyce came up of our favorite venue in her dream, yes I'm not daydreaming, although I don't know how her passion about getting the right venue overflow into her dreams, yet she just cannot let it go without showing us this place, and she made it happen the next morning to show us around, as she has been working with this venue many times, they trusted her to personally show us without prior appointment. And there it is, our wedding venue!
I think a great add-on value that you can only dream of for a wedding planner is to have such great relationship with great vendors. Joyce apparently have both: the right relationship and the taste. Initially I would rather just skip wedding cakes because I cannot stand non-fresh-cream and sweet-to-death cake, which is almost impossible for a three-tier cake, and Joyce would never want to risk our wedding cake hoping the fresh cream is not going to crash after hours standing on the wedding day! So she recommended a baker, who learned to do it in a Swedish way, it was mysteriously tasty! I have to say the only thing that we were disappointed about the wedding is that no more cake was left afterwards. Now I know, wedding cakes can be tasty too!
Anyways, we cannot appreciate more to have Joyce as our wedding planner, she not only help us have a great wedding, but also made the wedding preparation such a wonderful memory.
Joyce, may God continue to bless the newly weds through you and your fun handsome husband in your wedding planning!
