Wonderful Wedding Planner
My Wedding Planner Kerline was a gift from my sisters' for my wedding. Kerline was the planner for my sister's wedding, and it was fabulous. At first, I did not feel as though I needed a wedding planner. I was sure if I purchased one of those self-planning binders, I could handle it all myself. Mind you; I don't like hassles. I ordered the wedding binder, and it was not my cup of tea. Long story short, I decided to book Kerline from Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC, as my Wedding Planner. I made the right decision. Planning a wedding can be complicated, and if you don't ask your vendors the right questions, you could end up being very disappointed. Kerline dealt with my vendors, reviewed my contracts, and made the entire planning process simple. The wedding day was great, Kerline, and her team did an excellent job setting up and handled my guest exceptionally well. My advice to anyone on the fence about hiring Kerline from Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC is "do it" you will not regret it, and it will save you lots of heartache in the end.Sent on 10/30/2019

My husband and I would like to thank you again for all your help. From the day we enquired about helping us coordinating our wedding, until the moment everything ended on our bid day. Nothing was ever too much for ask for, and questions were always answered superfast. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, or a better planner. Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your hard work in making our wedding the best day of our lives. It would not have been possible without you.Sent on 10/30/2019
I wished I did hire you to plan the whole wedding. Even though you started coordinating months after I started planning you fitted right in and fixed everything that could have gone wrong. You are very professional and respectful to your clients. You always took time to help us understand every details.

Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Nancy & Eddy! We loved working with you as well! We loved working with you in April and you truly were such a sweet couple! We loved how you infused your love of God and your heritage into creating such a unique wedding day! The weather played with us all day, but it did not dampen the sentiment of the day! Continued blessings! - Kerline

Joie De Vie is a blessing!!
Hiring Kerline was the BEST decision I could’ve made on my wedding day ( besides getting married of course hahaha). Her vast knowledge on EVERYTHING, her punctuality, her personality, and her ability to deal with my wild family was impeccable! If it wasn’t for Kerline, her team, and her amazing vendor recommendations our wedding day wouldn’t have been named by my family “ The Wedding of the Century”Sent on 10/29/2019
Anything and everything we needed she reassured us it would be taken care of and she delivered PLUS more! The day of our wedding she even stopped the rain! I’m telling you, SHE’S THAT GOOD!
In all honesty Kerline is a blessing! Working with her definitely was an absolute pleasure and she comes highly highly recommended by my venue, my Dj, literally anyone I spoke with had nothing but fantastic things to say about her work!
Joie De Vie thank you so much for everything!
Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Tianna & Rejean, thank you! Your wedding day was amazing and truly a memorable night! We loved every detail of your wedding day. Wishing you all the best! Prayerfully, no rain! We are happy that we were able to call in some favors on the weather! (Jokes, but seriouly alot of prayers).

We had the pleasure of choosing Joie De vie for our wedding this past August and Kerline did not disappoint at all. Being that this was our first encounter with a wedding planner, we were nervous (clueless really) while Kerline was level-headed the entire time. She had a lot of connections with vendors In the Central Florida area which came in very handy. She offered her professional opinion while not at all imposing. Joie de vie helped us search for the venue, helped us track rsvp and helped us deal with the vendors from start to finish. She did literally everything that we agreed on in the contract. Kerline and her staff were active the day of the wedding to make sure we got everything that was due to us from every vendor we contracted. She is very direct ( that might be an issue for some) but I had no issues at all with it because I am the same way and feel that it is needed for such a stressful time as planning a wedding. I would recommend her to any and everyone. My family is still raving about her. Because of her, the wedding starting on time, all of the guests were accounted for, and there were no surprises. We actually now still stay in touch even after the wedding.Sent on 10/30/2019
Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Phidjie & Mac, thank you! It was an honor for my team and I to be a part of your wedding weekend. Your wedding was amazing and uniquely a reflection of the two of you! From the first meeting, iI loved that the two of you envisioned something unique and totally against the grain! Phidjie's love of architecture and your love of understanding the history and the intention you both placed on everything truly helped to create a very memorable day. Nothing like a Hurricane to get your adrenaline pumping and I am so happy that the rain didn't ruin our plans! Wishing the two of you a lifetime of HAPPINESS!

Worth it is an understatment!
If you are in the season of wedding planning or about to be - I highly suggest JDV! I cant say enough positive things about Kerline and the whole Joie de Vie team. From the moment we met Kerline, we knew we made the right choice in entrusting her with our special day. She is thorough, efficient and structured yet still knows how to make wedding planning fun and completely interavtice. She truly got to know us and made sure that our vision came true on our day!

July 2019 Wedding
We recently got married in July 2019, and lets just say we could not have done it without Kerline and the Joie De Vie team. From the first day of planning with Kerline we knew we made the right decision as our coordinator. Kerline always went above and beyond helping with vendor connections, organization and planning, as well as a smooth wedding day. It is important to work with people who love what they do and Kerline; as well as her team, will exude passion and love for your wedding! Kerline and the Joie De Vie team always made sure our best interest was at heart and we are forever grateful. Signed a Happy Couple…….The Johnson’sSent on 10/30/2019
Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Kendra & Jeremie! We so appreciate the Johnsons! Unique, beautiful, amazing and a true 'turn up' are just a few words we used to describe your wedding day! Thank you for trusting us with your details and letting us be a part of the party of the summer! We hope and pray that laughter never stops in your home and that your marriage remains continuously blessed! Thank you, thank you, thank you! - Kerline & The Team At Joie de Vie

You will not be disappointed
Kerline was great for my wedding. My wife and I hired her as a month of coordinator for our two day wedding Nigerian wedding in May of 2019. I can say without reservation that this was one of the best decision that we made. I was very skeptical at first as I did not think a wedding coordinator was necessary and I am glad to know that I was wrong.Sent on 10/12/2019
Kerline went above and beyond to ensure that we had as little stress as possible while my wife and I were planning the wedding and during the wedding. She is very detail oriented and has excellent relationships with a number of vendors. My wife found the wedding planning tools to be helpful. I can say that my only regret was that we did not use Kerline until a month before the wedding. I can say without a doubt that our wedding planning would have gone smoother. It is for this reason that i would recommend Kerline without hesitation.
Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Dunell, thank you for your kind words! We loved working with you and Doyin in creating an amazing 2-day celebration! Your Nigerian & Haitian heritage shined through your wedding day. I loved the simplicity and elegance of the elements you both selected. Classic, timeless and a complete "Turn Up"! Wishing you a lifetime of blessings and happiness! - Kerline & The Joie de Vie Team

Words cannot express my gratitude for Joie De Vie Weddings and event. My wedding was something out of a magazine! It was almost the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of them. I came to them with a simple idea and they worked their magic and brought it to life. If you think you don't need a wedding planner, think again and if you think you can go with just any one THINK AGAIN!Sent on 10/30/2019
Kerline is a top-notch planner and I am incredibly lucky to have had her help. She always made us feel as though she had everything 100% under control. Trust me, you want her as a planner! Kerline is like a design genius! It's like she was reading my mind! I loved everything she came up with! She respected my input and added her special designer eye to my ideas. The day of the wedding ran fairly smoothly. Everything, every person, every moment...
Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Ayesha & Amir, it was truly a pleasure working with you! We are humbled by your kind words and we are happy we were able to help execute such a memorable day for you and your family. We love you all dearly and know we will see you all soon. We pray that your marriage remains continuously blessed with love, laughter, and growth! Continued blessings! -Kerline
Stephanie · Married on 03/02/2019
I LITERALLY could write a novel of nothing but positive words about Kerline whom I worked with mainly but also for her wonderful team who assisted us the day of. My now husband was hesitant on hiring a wedding planner because with a wedding party of 22, and 250+ guests he simply didn't want to spend the money. but as the saying goes "happy wife, happy life" and we hired Kerline which was one of the best decisions we could have made. I have an extremely busy schedule and am particular on what I like but I never once saw Kerline break a sweat. She was literally anytime I needed to speak to her. She claims she sleeps but I can't believe it. Kerline made sure that our vision was met while also being honest with her suggestions. The day of the wedding she and her team moved effortlessly. When people ask how my wedding was, I always say perfect because if something had gone wrong, I have no idea because of the phenomenal job Kerline did. I highly recommend Kerline and wish her business nothing but continued success.Sent on 03/27/2019

Joie de Vie is the BEST
Lemy and I had the best planner. She was attentive and ensured that our dream day became a reality. We were so grateful to have Kerline in our lives for the last ten months. Time management played a significant role. We were able to accomplish everything on our list and take all the pictures we desired. We love Joie De Vie, and we will recommend their services to every future bride and groom we know. Thank you :)Sent on 02/02/2019
Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Thank you Val & Lemy! We enjoyed working with you and Mrs. S. over the last year as you planned your wedding. It was truly a beautiful reflection of your day. As we told you from day 1: we will start ON TIME! With having a large bridal party, it can be challenging; but we loved that we were able to keep it light, kept it moving while you created memories. We wish you all the best in your marriage! Congratulations!

The best investment you can make for your wedding.
Where do I begin? Kerline is very professional, punctual, organized, and a respectful planner. You can see her love and passion reflected through her work. She went above and beyond to make sure my wedding day was perfect. It was perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We started working with her 13 months before the wedding. Through the entire process, we never experienced any stress; aside from finalizing our guest list, (which had nothing to do with her). Before committing to venues etc. she had us complete our preliminary list so we could realistically select our venue. She then gave my husband and me eight months to update all of the addresses. She knew it can take some time and could be an emotional process for any couple. In talking to others getting married, we realized there were many things she assisted with that other planners don’t typically assist with. Our planning package gave us the ability to have her assist us with every part of the planning. When my husband and I sat with her to talk about the vision of our wedding day, she was such a good listener, she was able to narrow down the options quickly. Also, every vendor she referred us to exceeded our expectations, and they all said: “Kerline is an elite planner, your wedding is going to be exceptionally well done.” I’m not being biased, she was everything they described her to be. After the wedding, our family and friends called us saying “they’ve never been to a wedding like ours.”
As she said: we were investing too much money to not enjoy the process and the day. We truly enjoyed the process and our Wedding Day! Hire Joie de Vie!Sent on 01/02/2019
Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Joane & Raymond, thank you for your kind words. We absolutely loved working with you on creating your best day ever! We loved how you took the time to curate the best of the best so that your guests could feel your love for one another and for them. We wish you a lifetime of happiness.

The Best You'll EVER have!
Being the control freak that I am, the moment we began planning our wedding, I was certain there’d be no need for a Wedding Planner. We’d always known exactly where we wanted to say our “I Do’s”, so it was easy to check that off our list. To my surprise, however, one of the venue’s mandatory requirements were that must have a Wedding Planner/Month of Coordinator. Although I was reluctant to do so, I embarked on my search to find the perfect Planner. Unfortunately, the search wasn’t going well but thankfully, upon securing our Florist/Event Designer (R&J Glamour) Juan Carlos immediately referred Kerline. I explored Joie de Vie on Instagram, subsequently ended up on their website and fell in love – just as Juan Carlos had expected! Her style and obvious attention to detail were not only captivating, but it also matched my personality perfectly!Sent on 01/14/2019
Our initial in-person meet-up with Kerline, solidified and cast away lingering doubts. She was professional and bubbly, but most of all, precise... Very precise! This was indeed my favorite quality about her because I too am quite meticulous! She'd often tease me and call me a "True Joie de Vie Bride". HAHAHA!
Many times throughout the process Kerline came to the rescue with her extensive list of contacts and referrals. Although I am a DC resident, my dress fitting was in Ft. Lauderdale. Kerline took the 4-hour drive and made sure she arrived (on time) for my 10am appointment to ensure she knew how to bustle my dress – talk about COMMITTED!! In the days leading up to the main event, she met with our team, conducted the rehearsal and then provided members of the party and other vendors with an extensive printed timeline. Meanwhile, I just sat back with my arms folded and for once didn’t have to utter a word! 😊
Our wedding day was just as beautiful as we’d expected and went off with only a minor hitch (WHICH KERLINE HAD ABSOLUTELY NO CONTROL OVER)!
Ladies and Gents, if you’ve been searching for the perfect planner, I urge you to end your search now. My husband and I were beyond pleased with the services offered by Kerline and are amazed at what we were able to pull off in just 4 months. There isn’t a thing we would change about our day!
Thank you Kerline! We truly could not have done it without you! XOXO

There aren’t enough words to express how amazing the Joie de Vie team is! Kerline was amazing from day one and her staff handled our big day impeccably! We enlisted her team for the full wedding planning services and she spent 11 months making sure everything and everyone was in place on our wedding day! She took us to the best vendors and offered details that I would’ve never thought of. I had a bridal party of 21 and a guest count of over 250 and the Joie de Vie team managed to get us in place and start our wedding on time! I honestly had no worries on the day of our wedding thanks to Joie de Vie and I therefore got to enjoy every minute of the day! I got so many compliments from guests regarding how professional and precise Kerline and her team were! They really are the best!! You will not regret working with them!!Sent on 09/18/2018

I will start by saying; Hiring Kerline and her team was the best decision we made for our big day. Who thought planning a wedding could be this easy and stress-free from beginning to end.

Kerline and her team are AMAZING- from helping my fiancé and I get our vision together to itineraries to being emotionally supportive- all in 8 months. She provided wedding planning, design, and coordination. My wedding was a vision that came to life. Kerline’s skills with vendors are phenomenal. In fact, all of my vendors applauded her attention to detail and respected her craft. As a bride, my engagement period was so smooth all thanks to Kerline and her team, specifically Shayla, who was there along the journey to help get us in place and make things happen. Kerline kept us informed every step of the way and I couldn't be happier. My wedding was everything I could've asked for AND some. My guests had so many amazing things to say and our families loved how Kerline handled everything. I will forever send people to Joie de Vie Weddings & Events for any event planning needs. Just, phenomenal.
Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC's reply:Thank you! We loved working with you and appreciate that you thought so much of us to bring us in from Florida to pull your day together. Your wedding was a beautiful reflection of your love for one another, your spiritual commitment and a great dose of an unforgettable party!

The Joie de Vie Team did phenomenal assisting with my wedding. On several occasions I felt overwhelmed through the process. However, Kerline always seemed to keep me on track. Unexpectedly my grandmother passed away during our final two weeks of the process. Kerline and her team were there to support through that difficult time and and made the remainder of the planning a breeze. Kerline is a wealth of knowledge and is always 10 steps ahead. She is prepared for any situation and handled fires with calm demeanor.Sent on 05/22/2018

Where do I begin? If you want someone who is professional, knowledgeable, detailed oriented, has great time management, goes above and beyond this is who I would recommend. Joie De Vie was the first event company I met with and I knew immediately I wanted them on my team. They are so sweet, kind, intelligent and professional, I don't know what I would have done without them. I hear stories about brides not being able to enjoy their day because it's so much going on. I was able to enjoy my day from start to finish, which is important to the bride and groom. Any mishaps they handled it like a pro. I really can't thank them enough for making sure we had a wonderful wedding.Sent on 06/26/2018

If I could give more stars to the Joie de Vie Team I absolutely would! Joie de Vie Weddings & Events is simply the best at taking the stress out of your special day, and bringing your dreams to fruition! When I got engaged, the first piece of advice I got was to hire a wedding planner. Kerline and her staff came highly recommended and my husband and I are so glad we hired them! They helped with every single detail of our day, stood by my side during my "Type A personality freak outs", and held my hand when the nerves started to kick in. They took care of things that I didn't even know I needed to do, and offered great suggestions and advice along the way.

She was always there no matter what was needed. We hired her to be our day of coordinator but she is much more than that. Due to hurricane Irma we had to postpone our wedding another 6 weeks.
