    The best $$ spent on my wedding

    Hiring Joann was one of the best decisions I made planning my wedding. I hired Joann for my day of coordinator on a recommendation from another vendor. I had planned about 90% of my wedding and thought wow that wasn’t so hard. But trust me the last 10% is the hardest part!!! Having Joann for the last steps of the way helped out so much!!
    Having Joann the day of my wedding was the best thing I did. Because guess what happens when something happens and you don’t have Joann they come to the bride. I was able to relax, enjoy and most importantly not stress. Joann took care of everything big or small.
    I know weddings cost a lot of money and some people think that a day of coordinator isn’t necessary but trust me if you want to enjoy all the money that spend invest in a day of coordinator and their is no one better than Joann.
    Thank you Joann for everything!!! You are amazing and I am forever grateful for you!!

    I don’t know what I would have done without JoAnn

    There aren’t words to describe my experience working with JoAnn. From the day we met it was an instant connection. JoAnn wasn’t just interested in helping plan our wedding, she was genuinely interested in us. I never felt like “just another couple”, I always felt as if my wedding was the most important thing she was doing. JoAnn planned both my bridal shower and my wedding and both were absolutely flawless. JoAnn walked me though everything, attended all vendor meetings with us, gave recommendations of people who we now consider family. She is so knowledgeable of the ins and outs of the business and all the right people to call. JoAnn answered every phone call, and on the rare times she couldn’t- she replied immediately with a text saying when she would be able to talk. Id call JoAnn for everything- and it didn’t always have to do with the wedding. She became my therapist for a year and a half without ever once making me feel like my phone calls weren’t welcome. They became a nightly occurrence I look forward to continuing.
    Our guests haven’t stopped talking about how perfect our wedding was, and I might be biased but I’ve never been to one more beautiful. JoAnn laid out a detailed itinerary and made sure the timeline was kept to the entire day, without ever making us feel rushed. I could probably write a book describing my wonderful experience with JoAnn, but I’ll end with she will never be just a wedding planner to our family but forever my second mom to me. ❤️

    JoAnn did a fantastic job coordinating our wedding. We got married at a private residence on a hillside, which required bringing in ALL vendors and services that you would normally get at a banquet hall. Her knowledge of the area's best and most reliable vendors, as well as her willingness to work with new ones, made it all possible. She handled all of the relationships for us - we just had to explain what we were looking for. JoAnn always fought for our interests whenever necessary; she also provided a good sounding board for decisions. She has very good taste as well. We would highly recommend JoAnn to anyone!
