My daughter (the bride) and I trusted Johnell at Clearly Classy Events to coordinate and plan the whole wedding. I was totally a deer in the headlights, a little high-strung and live in Houston. The wedding was to be outdoors in Austin in early February. How's that for a tall order?! We met with Johnell gave her our idea of what we wanted and how much we wanted to spend. She worked with my daughter and me and created a vision board and detailed budget--which was very accurate. Even though we never saw a flower before we got to the venue for the ceremony and reception, when we walked into the reception room, we saw our vision down to the smallest detail. Johnell's recommendations for vendors were all spot on. Even afterwards I can't get over what a fantastic time we had.Sent on 02/14/2017

All brides to be, buckle up, and read this review. Hiring Johnell and the Cleary Classy Events team was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding. To start, I have never been one to day dream about wedding details. Growing up I didn't think about what my flowers would look like, or my color scheme - I just knew I wanted it to be a great time celebrating the love of my life with family and friends. The first time I met Johnell I walked into her office with my wedding Pinterest board in tow, filled with random pins that could have described 10 different weddings. She took a look at what I had, listened to my "vision" (I put in quotes because it was so scatter brained), and she looked and me and said "I can plan this wedding". After giving her my thoughts and letting her know I wanted an ethereal, elegant wedding with a laid back backyard vibe she took me right to the Hummingbird House, and I can not even put into words how perfect and absolutely incredible the venue was. We immediately knew it was the venue for us after a long and arduous search, and we would have never found it had it not been for Johnell's expertise. Every single step of the way she was diligent and responsive. I changed my color scheme at least 3 times before landing on blush, and each time I sent those random late night emails with my frantic requests she would get right back to me. I felt totally at ease, and had the most incredible experience planning my wedding with literally no stress. Every single recommendation Johnell made from the photographer (Luxe Photography), the flowers (Bloom Bar) the videographer (Erik Carlson) and beyond, were absolutely fabulous. Not only was every single person we worked with tremendously talented, but they were also amazing people and a total joy to have as a part of our special day. The day of the wedding I did not have to worry about one single thing. From making sure everything was set and gorgeous, to getting rid of wasps that had flown into ourSent on 02/17/2017

Clearly Classy Events is THE event planning company to choose! Johnell and her team worked with us from the beginning to the end on our wedding. They handled every piece of our wedding puzzle. I had some unique ideas and they were helpful and always knew and understood the final vision. Every step of the way Johnell and her team were GREAT! I would easily recommend Clearly Classy Events to everyone needing an event or wedding planner...no matter how small or large your event are going to get exactly what you want! I was married in Austin but lived in Houston and I always knew our preparation was in great hands with the Clearly Classy Team! The communication was always open and responded to all questions and concerns I had during the process. I can't thank them enough for making one of the greatest days of my life so EXTREMELY INCREDIBLE!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Johnell, Cassie, and the team are great! Do yourself a favor and choose them! :) You won't regret it!Sent on 08/18/2016

From start to finish: WOW! We knew we wanted a party planner for our wedding, but had no idea where to start or even what questions to ask a party planner. Thank gosh we met Johnell!!! Her and her staff provide you with an exceptional level of service. They provide you with things that you don’t even realize you need when you are trying to decide on a planner. During the process, I thought to myself “Wow, its a good thing we hired Johnell because I had no idea I would even need a timeline or a dropbox folder, but it really came in handy.” She creates a vision board, keeps your budget on track, lets you know how much deposit and final monies are due when and to whom, she coordinates with the transportation and caterer, and flower people and OH MY! All the people to coordinate with is mind boggling, so it really helped for us to have one point of contact, Johnell, who would then contact the correct vendor to make any changes. We changed our minds so many times about little details and they seemed happy to make the changes and roll with our punches. Never, at any point, did they seem frustrated with our requests, which made me, as a bride, feel okay about wanting to add/subtract things from the evening. There are so many details that go into planning an event and I didn’t want to handle any of them. You can be as hands on or as hands off with Johnell and her staff. We let her take complete control of the decor because neither of us cared about it, but she ended up nailing exactly what we had in mind as she took our venue style and favorite colors and blended them seamlessly all well within our budget. Johnell is by your side the entire time you are planning. She came with us to everything…. my dress fittings, our venue walk throughs, flower appointments, etc. Day of the event, Cleary Classy Events was paramount to the success of our event. She catered to me and my husband throughout the whole night to make sure we were comfortable. YOU MUST HIRE THEM!Sent on 04/22/2016

Johnell and her team were absolutely amazing. I could have imagined our wedding going more perfectly. All of our guests were stunned by the decor, food, and setup of our wedding. Johnell worked tirelessly to fulfill each and every one of our needs and request, and the most amazing part was she did it with a smile on her face the whole time. It was such a joy working together with her to put this thing all together. I felt so enthusiastic after each of our meetings leading up to the event, and she her vast experience in everything wedding related calmed all of our nerves, and let us really enjoy and celebrate.Sent on 04/10/2016

Johnell with Clearly Classy Events is the best of the BEST! She is organized, patient, caring, kind and above all... one heck of a wedding coordinator. I really believe hiring Johnell was the reason my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy our wedding!Sent on 04/02/2016
She is impeccably organized and kept us on schedule. We never had to worry that something was overlooked because Johnell was on it. Throughout the process, Johnell reached out to every vendor to make sure everyone was on the same page to avoid any hiccups.
When the wedding weekend finally arrived, she was there every step of the way. She orchestrated a fun wedding rehearsal and on the day of the wedding was off to take care of every imaginable detail! Our wedding was truly PERFECT! Our family and friends still can't stop talking about how amazing our special day was! Johnell was one of the main reasons why everything went so smoothly and I cannot recommend Clearly Classy Events enough!!

Johnell was my wedding planner and it was the best decision we made through out the wedding planning process. I live in Los Angeles, CA and was planning a wedding in Austin, TX. I was worried to plan the whole wedding lost distance, but Johnell made sure everything was lined up and taken care of. From day one, Johnell and I clicked and she immediately picked up on the vision I had been picturing. She took the vision and made it come to life even better than I had imagined. I was very thankful that Johnell was very involved with recommending and communicating with all of our vendors and the design and vision of the whole wedding. On the wedding day itself, she executed the plans to perfection. The groom and I didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day because she was on top of it all. It made the day that much more enjoyable! We really couldn't have asked for anything more.Sent on 03/25/2016

I was MOB for the wedding. My daughter lives in CA, I live in west Texas and the wedding was in Austin at The Driskill Hotel. I could not have made it through the 14 months of planning without Clearly Classy Events-Johnell Huebner. Hiring her was well worth the money. She kept us focused and on schedule with everything-from day one. Johnell Huebner knows the event planning industry. She knows the best dependable and professional vendors in the area to work with. Clearly Classy Events is up on the latest styles and trends to help brides/wedding parties accomplish their wishes and visions. My daughter had her vision of specific items and Clearly Classy Events pulled it all together and made it come to life. Johnell Huebner is creative and very detailed oriented. On the day of the wedding, we got to enjoy the event while Johnell and her Clearly Classy Events team supervised and directed. We're so thankful we hired Clearly Classy Events! So many thanks to all the people involved! This event was way above and beyond our expectations. Don't have wedding day regrets-hire Clearly Classy Events to make it that incredible dreamy day that you'll never forget!Sent on 03/27/2016

My daughter Brianna wanted to get married at Camp Lucy from the moment she saw Ian's Chapel and the grounds. She had 6 months only to plan her wedding the wanted to be married by the end of 2015. She lives in Dallas and I, brides mother, live in California. I was referred to Johnell by one of Camp Lucy's vendors. We did not have a chance to meet until the Wednesday before the wedding but she was kind enough to answer all my emails. The day before the wedding Dripping Springs got 16 inches of rain within 1 hour and keep raining through the night and morning, roads where closed due to flooding and no passable roads were open. I saw my daughters heart breaking as we had to make a decision. Johnell asked what we wanted to do. My daughter wanted to be married at Camp Lucy , she said she would make that happen and do all possible and SHE DID. We got there 1 hour before the ceremony and she had to work the event on her own because her staff couldn't make it through but SHE DID and Camp Lucy Staff, WHIM catering and crew they all made it happen for her. It was a beautiful event and Johnell from Clearly Classy Events YOU ROCK. You made my daughters day so beautifully romantic I can't thank you enough. I highly recommend Johnell she understands what it takes to make the day magical for bride and groom. She works well with all the vendors and keeps everything going.

Imagine everything almost falling apart on your wedding day due to flooding! We had record floods and almost didn't have a venue! Johnell at Clearly Classy took the reigns and got EVERYTHING executed for us despite weather and obstacles. Two of her assistants were unable to drive out due to road conditions, Johnell stepped up and handled the ENTIRE event herself. She also handled everyone's HIGH and INTENSE emotions of the possibility of vendors, guests etc not showing up. JOHNELL IS AMAZING! I would recommend her to ANYONE. Even prior to the event, she is on task and organized. Thank you Johnell for making sure our day was special NO MATTER WHAT.Sent on 11/10/2015

Clearly Classy could not have been of more help not only before, but on the day of our wedding! The coordinators were included in our contract with out venue (Hideout on the Horseshoe), and I understand why the Hideout works with this company completely! Johnell helped recommend wonderful vendors to work with, and on the day of the wedding, Kacie kept me from having to worry about a thing! From organizing the vendors, to controlling groomsmen and bridesmaids that had enjoyed a few beers (or more) that morning, Kacie put out fires left and right. She was a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend Clearly Classy to anyone who wants a stress-free wedding day! I cannot thank these ladies enough for how much help they were :)!Sent on 09/28/2015

Johnell and Natasha are fabulous wedding planners! I didn't ever think about getting a wedding planner because I thought it was unnecessary and I was completely wrong. These people literally changed my life. The venue required a planner so I called a few that the venue recommended. I chose Clearly Classy events because they were the first to respond and very well priced (and didn't tack on a bunch of extra fees). They were extremely detail oriented, professional, and helpful. I never had to ask if something was being done, it was always taken care of before I asked. Our venue had strict rules about when we could bring things in and they made sure it got done. Natasha was such a rockstar at the wedding making sure everything was running smoothly. I would highly recommend them to anyone! Thanks so much ladies!Sent on 04/24/2016

Where do I start with all that Johnell and her team did for our day??? From the very beginning when we skyped for our first meeting, since it was a semi-destination wedding, she was a rockstar! She is down to earth, but knows her stuff. I, like many brides, had everything I wanted in my head, but didn't know how to make it a reality. With Johnell and Clearly Classy, my vision came to life. It was like she had jumped into my head and explained it all like I never could.Sent on 01/15/2016
She found vendors for me, arranged schedules, fixed problems, kept track of the budget, shuffled people, orchestrated the rehearsal, kept me focused day of, & even went under my dress trying to figure out the bustle. While nothing is ever perfect, you would have never known it with the graceful ease and flow the day held. A hiccup arises? It's taken care of. A vendor is late? She's got this. Drama? She can take it.
I have no doubt that the day would have fallen apart all around me without Johnell by my side. I probably wouldn't have any hair left by the time the wedding day arrived either, if had not been for her taking care of all the things I knew I couldn't up in Dallas. She held my hand like a friend, hugged me when I started to melt down, and made my day what I always dreamed of since I was a little girl.
Johnell, you blew it out of the park, or Ranch ;)
Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough for making my dreams come true and making Chris and I's wedding day the most beautiful day of our lives.

Clearly Classy Events is 100% top notch.Sent on 09/21/2015
From the beginning, my husband and I interviewed planners and Johnell (planner and owner) was at the top of the list by far. Since the venue wasn't a traditional venue, from day one she had to hound people to figure out how to book the place and get vendors there, as they prefer all of their own vendors, and we preferred otherwise. She has a "take no shit" attitude, which is exactly what I needed and what we needed for the wedding party and guests on the day of; she is a true cat wrangler. She was extremely flexible and easy to work with, which made things so much better for us, especially with the constant communication!
Johnell's assistant, Jessica, is also amazing, and is always quick to respond and help in Johnell's absence.
I had the Princess Package and I wouldn't change that for anything, as it made my experience pretty easy and seamless. I wanted as much help as possible and wanted everything done for me, in true Princess style.
10 thumbs up, I would hire Clearly Classy for any event, not just a wedding.

Clearly Classy Events was a lifesaver and had such wonderful people to work with. Everything was taken care of by Johnell and her staff so if anything went wrong or there were mishaps I was unaware of any of it. I doubt that there were because she is so organized and keeps things moving effortlessly. She was so fun and hardworking that I felt no worries giving her complete control and authority. I would suggest brides do the same and don't worry about anything accept having a great time on you day because they will get the job done even better than you would have imagined. Johnell took care of everything from the making sure the parents, groomsmen, bridesmaids, bride, groom, officiant, and all of the vendors had everything they could possibly need.

Out of all the things I decided to do for my wedding, I believe getting a wedding coordinator (for the day of) was one of my best decisions. Johnell from Clearly Classy Events worked flawlessly with the venue coordinator (and all the other vendors) to make the day perfect - I had to worry about nothing at all. I was pleasantly surprised to see that when the wedding was over her team actually took care of cleaning up (and packing away) all the things I had in the "bridal cabin" (this is where I got ready for the wedding) - they packed everything in my car, and also helped move my things over to a cabin I had reserved at the venue to spend the wedding night with my new husband. They even packed away left over food and cake as well as drinks for us to eat later should we get hungry :-)Sent on 05/07/2015
The only thing that got me on alert was the fact that after eating people started to get ready to leave - but the problem was resolved right away; Johnell announced the toast, and after having a few people speak we served cake and people ended up staying for another hour and a half.
Our wedding day was lovely, and I am glad Johnell was there to see it through!

Clearly Classy Events went above and beyond for my wedding. I am typically an anxious person but working with Johnell put my mind at ease. She helped me choose all of my vendors and every one of them were amazing. The day of my wedding I didn't have to think once about planning. They had everything covered. Talk about a major sense of relief! They did many things that I didn't even think about like brought my husband and I's food to our table immediately so we wouldn't get stuck talking to people and not get to eat! Through out the night Johnell would check in with me to make sure all was well. Clearly Classy Events is more than just an event planning service. Through the entire day they were extremely supportive and gave me a lot of little tips that went a long way. I am so happy they were our planner!Sent on 04/27/2015
