Wonderful team for a stress free wedding!
Monique and Hannah are an AMAZING team! I cannot say enough great things about this team. They are professional, smart and always on top of everything! If you are looking for a wedding team that will take so much stress out of the day and make everything they touch seem effortless and perfect, this is the team for you!Sent on 07/24/2020
We got married in the middle of COVID. And that would not have been possible without their attention to detail, brilliant ideas to make everyone safe and comfortable and proactivity. We relied on their creativity and phenomenal experience, and it paid of with a perfect wedding day!
You will not regret hiring their team. They do an amazing, beautiful job and will allow you to really enjoy your wedding day to the fullest! They were always there for us and made us feel very taken care of. I highly recommend both of them to any couple getting married in Charleston!
Yoj Events's reply:Thank you so much, Olivia! We appreciate the kind words. Our team really enjoyed getting to know you and your family. We wish you all the best!

Great Job YOJ!!
I always believed that the true character of an individual, and for that matter, a company, does not present itself in ordinary times. In times of hardship, when they are needed the most, that is when you find out what the character of a person really is. Monique, and the staff at YOJ stood by us through the replanning of our daughters wedding three times, with compassion, encouragement and thoughtfulness. Throughout the process, her advice on what to expect from, and how to deal with numerous vendors was Invaluable. Countless phone calls, texts, that where answered almost immediately, and numerous emails later, there was Monique guiding us through the day at Cannon Green.
I could write several pages on how well they did and how hard they worked, but I just want to relay how we hired YOJ. My daughter had interviewed several planners and then had an appointment with Monique. At this point she was just not connecting with anyone. Then she called me and said, “Dad this is it! Monique is who we need, trust me on this.” I wrote a check that day and never looked back. I know Monique and YOJ will have continued success In the future and can not recommend them enough for anyone looking for an event planner. Thanks Monique!

If only our hearts and souls could talk! Wow Wow and Wow! We have been together 24 years and engaged for 20 of them. Late summer 2019, we had that 'ah ha moment' and decided to get married. We are from Ohio, and had visited Charleston on vacation a few years back. We immediately fell in love with the city's charm, food, and most of all, the people. While having all of our family and friends with us for our special day would have been ideal, we decided to 'elope' ... yep, just the two of us! This would be a second marriage for each of us. We struggled with having that typical wedding. In the end, let me just say, we would do it all over again, the exact same way. So, we began the infamous Google Search regarding Charleston Weddings, filled out the 'online forms' and who responded immediately? Jessica Lasko from Yoj Events. The tone of her email was very inviting so we decided to connect via phone conference. There are seriously not enough adjectives in the dictionary to describe Jessica's magical touches. From the moment we spoke with her, it was quite obvious that she is beyond passionate and fully committed to making sure our special day was just that, SPECIAL! Over that next year, we exchanged emails, and spoke periodically. The 'big' items had been decided on and deposits made. With Jessica's guidance, we selected Magnolia Plantation for the wedding (with access to the bridal suite and an absolutely BREATHTAKING setting), Erin Turner as our Photographer (FABULOUS FABULOUS FABULOUS photos by the way!), Kim Findlay as our Florist (OMG! Absolutely stunning bouquet and boutonniere) and Kasey King as our officiant (HIGHLY recommend Kasey ... we spoke with him about one month prior to our wedding and completed a couples questionnaire .... he was SPOT ON with his message during the ceremony...brought us to tears). Since we never actually met these most important people that are helping to create such a special memory for us, we had to completely put our life in their hands. And can we say, it was the BEST decision ever!!! We are beyond blessed and truly grateful for Jessica's expert and professional guidance as we eloped to Charleston, SC for our special day on July 11, 2020✨😘🎉💍🍾! We have relived that day, every single day since then, and would do it all over again tomorrow! Our most sincere gratitude to Jessica and everyone who made our day so special....WAYYYY beyond any expectation we could have had. Every single individual was AMAZING. If there is one regret, it's that we wish we had more time to spend together with Jessica and the rest of these very special and beautiful individuals✨ We can’t express our appreciation enough💕 Thank You💕 Thank you 💕 Thank you 💕Sent on 09/14/2020
Working with a consummate professional like Candice is such a pleasure and joy. Not only does she make the life of the vendors working with her flow so easily, I'm so impressed by how incredible everything looks! Such attention to the details makes the events I've done with her look picture perfect!
Yoj events say that they are "fabulously flawless". We agree! They are! Candice and her team truly have everything covered. There is nothing that have not had their hand in at a wedding and it shows. They make sure there is not a single thing for the bride to think about on the wedding day, except being the bride! Their work is beautiful perfection. Truly wonderful to work with from the first email to the hug at the end of the night. I simply can't say enough about how wonderful they are to work with! http://charlestonwedding.com/index.html#/clemons/
As a wedding minister, I'm often in a privileged position to observe the finished work of an event planner on a wedding day. I can usually tell when Yoj Events is providing event planning services, especially when my first thought upon seeing the tasteful elegance on display at the ceremony and reception areas is "WOW!" Their coordinators are always delightful and attentive to the bridal party and guests. I HIGHLY recommend Yoj Events if you're considering event planning services. You can count on them to pull everything together in a eye-pleasing way that will have you and your guests also thinking "WOW!"
