Monique and her team are extraordinarily! Not only did she plan my wedding but she also planned our daughter’s wedding and she was outstanding in every way. Every single detail from the planning to the actual day was perfect. She is organized, dependable and her whole team is attentive and kind. Our weddings were magical! Monique and her team are the very best in the biz!

Monique Semper @ YOJ Events-- Very Best Wedding Planner!

Looking for a wedding planner in the Charleston, SC, area? Then look no further than Monique Semper at YOJ Events. We live in Massachusetts – approximately 1000 miles from Charleston --and had less than 8 months’ notice to plan our daughter's wedding. This is not for the faint of heart and we worried that it would be an impossible task. The solution? Monique Semper at YOJ Events.

A good friend in Charleston referred us to Monique and it was the best referral we could ever have received. Our daughter and new son-in-law’s wedding was just about 2 weeks ago - early September 2023 - and it was absolutely lovely and everything went off without a hitch! Why? Because of Monique--she is incredibly knowledgeable, resourceful, flexible, responsive, great communicator, friendly, patient, thoughtful, empathetic, had phenomenal suggestions, and on and on. If we had a question, Monique had the answer! Moments of panic? Not to worry, Monique knows how to manage it. She has literally "seen it all."

She was also open to ideas and was willing to explore anything the future bride and groom wanted and was ready and willing to find a way to implement their dreams. She knows everyone in the area, knows the best wedding vendors, and was able to get the best prices for absolutely wonderful vendors. She was the contact/lead on every issue and detail that needed to be implemented! Best aspect, and possibly the most important – Monique is absolutely calm and reassuring throughout the process. She stays with you every step of the way, from opening discussions, bright and early on the wedding day and was there at the very final moments at the close of the reception. Monique is amazing.

Bottom line: there is NO way that we could have pulled off our daughter and son-in-law's spectacular wedding in 8 months without Monique and YOJ. She worked tirelessly to make it wonderful and memorable day. We recommend Monique whole-heartedly and if 20 stars were available on a scale of 1 to 10, then we would give her 20 stars! Do not hesitate to retain Monique—she is the best!

The best decision I made!

This is truly the most overdue post of my life but I wouldn’t ever forgive myself if I did not give YOJ Events the praise it deserves. I had a four day American/Indian fusion wedding in Charleston that wouldn’t have been possible without YOJ. To start, we ended up parting ways with our wedding planner four months before our wedding. We weren’t hitting deadlines and given the attention we deserved so was on the hunt for a new wedding planner. When I tell you my husband and I instantly fell in love with Monique, it was INSTANT. She is so wildly attentive, hits the ground running, and on top of her game. Our wedding was handled by Monique and Jordan who were the complete dream team. Jordan hit the literal nail on the head with my vision. I asked for quite a few alterations to stay within budget, hit non-negotiables, food and liquor dreams, etc and she made every revision so quickly and better. Monique and Jordan are truly advocates for what you want and with vendors. In four months they completely learnt what had been planned so far, finished planning, getting vendors, making deals, and executing our dream four day event. They handled every little request with a smile on their face – even with requests and vendor additions the night before. They also were the voice of reason between all the parties involved with the multi-day event when it came to my wants, my husbands wants, and our parents wants. They find a way to always find the happy and best solution. There aren’t enough words to describe how wonderful this team is and I am so sad my wedding is over because it means I don’t get to talk to Monique and Jordan everyday anymore. Hiring YOJ will be the best thing you do – PROMISE. From a once formerly stressed, sad, and upset bride-to-be due to bad wedding planning to a fulfilled, appreciative bride because of YOJ!!

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!

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!"
