Verified Reviews from Real Brides & Grooms

“She is fantastic and I highly recommend her! She really left no detail unanalyzed! I got to enjoy my wedding, and I owe that to Joyce. My husband says that hiring Joyce was the best decision I made—other than marrying him, of course!!!!!!!”

“Joyce had some of the greatest ideas. She carried the theme throughout the event by having the most spectacular and fun centerpieces—It was just an amazing, amazing night and all I did was basically choose the right event coordinator!”

“After working with Joyce in the planning stages, she so created that trust in her abilities, that I was able to give up control and enjoy every bit of my wedding day. Joyce was very creative and gave me many suggestions on how to enhance my ideas in ways I would never have thought of.”

“She did everything from the invitations on! She was a very good negotiator with the vendors, and amazingly organized. I simply don’t know what I would have done without her. My wedding was simply perfect and Joyce is simply fabulous!!!!!!!”

“She is really a top professional in her field. The events we have done with her are truly the most phenomenal ones. She has an exceptional eye for detail and her events are always class acts.”
