Amazing! Great coordinator
Barbara was so great to work with! Planning a wedding during Covid was so stressful and she seriously helped me keep my sanity! She did all the things you expect from a coordinator very professionally and efficiently, but what I loved about working with her is that through it all she always reminded us that the most important thing is that we are marrying the love of our life and will be spending the rest of our lives with our person. Made navigating all the hiccups so much better.Sent on 08/08/2020

Caring and Dedicated Wedding Coordination
I’ve hired Joined by Love for my wedding coordination and they have seriously gone so above and beyond! Barbara has spent time reviewing every single contract I have with vendors and contacting them all individually to ensure everything I need for my wedding day is fully and completely covered. She has also helped me find vendors and get pricing for the services that I still need to book - everything from food, hair, makeup, photography, flowers, and hotels! She is helping me organize and collect the decorations, centerpieces, music, and details to execute my dream wedding day vision! She keeps me organized and on track with all of the wedding planning we need to do so that I don't need to worry about that myself, and she is always willing to take on extra planning activities. When I am too busy at my job during business hours she takes on calling my vendors and prospective vendors to ask them the questions that I need answers to. Barbara is dependable, reliable, and an expert advice giver in the field! She is so easy to communicate with and coordinate with too which makes everything so smooth. Joined by Love has made my wedding SO EASY and I am SO HAPPY that I have them helping me!!! I seriously would not be able to do it without their awesome assistance! Additionally, after planning all of this with the help of Joined by Love, I had to reschedule my wedding due to the COVID pandemic. Barbara handled everything for me, which took a huge weight off of my plate. She contacted and rescheduled all of my vendors. She handled the difficult conversations and rearranged my payment plans for me. The biggest impact to me though was that she gave me encouragement and wisdom when I was feeling overwhelmed and upset by everything. Barbara truly cares for her brides and will be there for them. I am so thankful to have Joined by Love on my side during this time.Sent on 05/27/2020

Words can not express how efficient, professional and flexible Barbara was as our Day of Wedding Coordinator. She kept me stress-free, managed the chaos gracefully and was cool calm and collected my entire event. I would recommend her services to any and everyone who needs a planner/coordinator. She is well worth the money and you definitely get what you paid for with her.Sent on 10/07/2020

The BEST Wedding Planner!
Barbara was a life saver from start to finish! We were trying to plan our wedding within two months of becoming engaged and she made it the easiest time. We were able to enjoy our engagement time and not be overwhelmed with wedding plans. She talked me through my down moments and celebrated with our victories. I am almost sad it is over just because Barbara made it so much fun to plan. She is the BEST planner to go with and I have already recommended her to friends. Love you so much Barbara!!!Sent on 08/27/2020

Barbara was amazing; organized and on top of every detail, both with the bride and the vendors. Handled the bride and Mom with patience and true caring and compassion. Barbara was part planner, part counselor, part friend. Thank you for making my daughter's day everthing she dreamed of. Couldn't have done it without you.Sent on 08/12/2020

Went above and beyond for our wedding coordination!
We are SO grateful for Barbara! She was our wedding coordinator and was extremely thorough, professional, and knowledgeable! She read through every vendor contract and ensured all parts of the contract were fulfilled by the vendors as well as ourselves. She contacted all vendors to schedule arrival times for the day-of and created a detailed timeline of our day. She made several suggestions for things to include in our day and planned everything to the minute. We had a few difficult vendors but she was still able to coordinate with them through persistence, which took a huge stressor off our plates. Barbara handled everything on the day of our wedding including helping with decorating in the morning, directing vendors, checking on the bride and groom periodically, managing the timeline, cutting our cake, cleaning up at the end of the night, and doing the final walk-through with our venue. Barbara also followed up with our vendors after the wedding including ones that did not fulfill all parts of their contracts. We cannot recommend Barbara highly enough.Sent on 06/27/2020
Joined by Love Wedding Planning's reply:Amanda and Cory, thank you so much! You two were great to work with! You had a great vendor team line up and your day was filled with so much love and support from all your family and friends! I felt honored to share this day with you! Happiness forever, Barbara

I can not recommend Barbara with Adoughable Creations enough. We met Barbara for a tasting and she went us home with extra cake, (now that’s winning my heart!). Barbara was so easy to work with throughout the whole planning process. The day of the wedding the cakes looked beautiful, and she even brings in floral/greenery herself so she knows it has been washed and prepped. I was so excited about the way our cakes turned out. I highly recommend Barbara!Sent on 09/19/2019

Best Cake Ever
Barbara, with Adoughable Creations, was the baker for our daughters wedding cake and the grooms cake. The cakes were excellent!! Her cakes have a great flavor, as well as the frosting. We received no complaints, only questions regarding who made the cakes. I will definitely be using Adoughable Creations for any other events where a cake is needed.Sent on 11/10/2019

Wonderful Vendor, Delicious Cake
We worked with Adoughable as part of the package that came with our venue. At first I was nervous about working with a baker before trying their cake, but my fears were quickly put to rest once we sat down with Barbara to discuss our cakes during our tasting.Sent on 04/13/2019
She was extremely helpful and willing to work with us to ensure we had the perfect cake for our special day.
Her cakes are soo good and I would highly recommend Them to anyone looking for their perfect cake.

Do yourself a favor - Hire her ASAP!!
Barbara was the easiest vendor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was accommodating, professional and just the sweetest person ever. Not only is her customer service amazing, her cakes are absolutely delicious! All throughout the wedding I overheard guests talking about how amazing the cake was. I'm so glad I have leftovers! Her hardwork definitely didn't go unnoticed. Barbara, thank you for making this part of wedding planning a breeze. I hope I have the opportuity to work with you in the future!Sent on 03/12/2019

Barbara is great !
Barbara is so incredible . She truly wants to make sure all of your dreams come true on your wedding day - and not just cake related. She is a call or text away at any time to provide advice or recommend vendors . Now for the cakes .... they were incredible ! My guests went on and on about how good they were . It’s seriously the best cake we’ve ever had and my husband and I are picky when it comes to cakes . The designs are phenomenal too ! My cake was beautiful and my husbands Yeti cooler grooms cake was incredible . It was so realistic I had some people not even realize it was a cake ! If you want someone who is personable but professional and really cares about you as a bride and not just as a client you should go with Barbara - she’s the best ! Super affordable too .Sent on 03/03/2019

Arpita · Married on 10/18/2018
Highly recommended. I'm very picky when it comes to cakes. I told Barbara in our initial conversation that the best cake I had till date was a certain flavor I ate in India back in 2011 and no one has been able to match it. Barbara took this as challenge and made the same flavour cake with amazing melt in mouth frosting. I tried few other places after her and not one could match up. My wedding is next year so I'll leave another review then. Barbara's motive is to make you cake dream come true. She treated me as someone with dreams on her big day and not just a client walking with money. Being a home baker I didn't have to go to her, she drove to my house. I'm very pleased to know my wedding cake will be the best, thanks to Barbara.Sent on 04/25/2017

Go with Barbara!
I loved everything Baraba did for my wedding. She did my wedding cake, grooms cake, and dessert table. She was so kind, patient, and creative. I trusted her judgment on the little details! Her cakes and desserts were delicious and my wedding guest raved about it even months later. I highly recommend her for your event!Sent on 01/24/2019

We wish we could give Barbara 6/5 stars! The service was absolutely top notch! From planning stages to sampling flavors to the big day, everything flowed perfectly and the cake was a huge success! We had so many guests rave about the delicious cake! Not only was it beautiful and aromatic but the flavor and moistness were seriously out of this world! The only thing sweeter than the cake was Barbara herself, super-understanding and so ready to help, it is always refreshing to know you are working with someone who has a true passion for what they do! Barbara, thank you again for helping make our big day that much more special!

My husband and I knew right away Barbara was they lady who we wanted to hire to make our wedding cake. Barbara’s enthusiasm and creative ideas made it so easy to choose. We tried several flavors of her cakes...it was hard to choose they all were so rich and flavorful. In the end the wedding and grooms cake was much more beautiful than we ever imagined!

We chose Adoughable creations for our wedding cake after Barbara made my graduation cake. Both tasted amazing and looked FLAWLESS! She made the cake tasting and designing effortless and really listened to what we wanted. She never took advantage and was very reasonable in price. She was also very professional and easy to work with. She even helped me find some other vendors needed for the wedding! We had left over cake from the wedding and it was still moist enough for us to eat it a week later. From now on we will use Adoughable creations for all of our cake needs!Sent on 06/08/2018
Nina · Married on 04/27/2018
Barbara was Amazing! she was affordable, Flexible with our budget and the cake was amazing. She made shooters for the wedding which were gone before we even saw them. She was very accommodating to our schedule with tasting since we had to travel from afar. She made it very easy to pay and split it up so we didn't have to pay all at once. Her cakes were amazing and we were able to customize it to how we wanted and needed since we had some nut allergies in our family. Her cake was elegant and fit our beauty and the beast themed wedding very well. I would definitely use her again for a different event. We loved her!Sent on 05/01/2018
Kellie · Married on 04/27/2018
Barbara was a life saver for me! Cake was my last vendor and most stressful to find. I had the hardest time getting someone to follow through with a cake tasting and she immediately set something up and was so accommodating. She had multiple flavors at the tasting and let us take home left overs to try again later. Each flavor was to die for! You can not go wrong with her! She is on top of it and makes sure you have what you need.Sent on 06/05/2018
