From Steve and Linda

Joelle’s passion for event planning is only surpassed by her professionalism. She is reliable, detail-oriented and quick on her feet. We had Joelle coordinate our wedding at the Four Seasons and she managed it masterfully. She communicated precisely with vendors, kept track of schedule, resolved any issues on the spot and made sure that our guests were well taken care of. Thanks to her, our wedding flowed particularly well. She is also an amazing calligrapher; she made our escort cards and they were a big hit. If the goal is to have a fabulous event and be in good hands, you want Joelle.

From Mark and Paula

We hired Joelle to be our month of and day of coordinator.   Joelle was wonderful from our very first meeting we knew we were in good hands.  She was organized ,responsive to all our questions and thought of all the things we hadn’t. On the day of the wedding Joelle and her assistant did a terrific job.  I gave her a rough idea of what I wanted the tables and decorations to look like and when I arrived at our venue I could not have been happier. Everything was beautiful.   I know that our wedding day would not have been as stress free and wonderful without her and all her hard work!!

From Mimi and Alan

Yes, the best investment ever, our wedding planner. Especially if you’re having a destination wedding- your wedding planning experience will be so much more beautiful and your day will be the most amazing day ever because all you have to worry about are the things that matter to you. For me it was design, guests’ experience, and showing up!

Joelle was priceless, to be honest. I trusted her entirely with days leading up and our actual DAY. So much I didn’t even flinch when my sister’s concealer dropped on my dress or when a vendor’s delivery was partial complete or when I asked the day before to have hay brought in to cover 3/4 of the dance floor area because I knew, “Joelle will handle it.”

Our wedding was flooded with vendors (imagine an empty wooden structure and that’s it. Not even electricity, a single piece of furniture, or even a kitchen) and everything went so smoothly. As the bride and groom, we remember every detail of our entire wedding. We had such a wonderful time and we got to share so much of it with our guests- not at all ever thinking or worrying about the production part. I would do it all over again and again. She understood my style, taste, and overall vision to help execute or find the right vendors to execute the first day of the best days of our lives.

This is my recommendation for Joelle and for future brides to find a wedding planner if you have the opportunity. And this is coming from someone who is an experienced event planner herself.
