    "Thanks so much for all that you did to make Jennifer and Jimmy's wedding and reception a "dream come true!" The last few months have been a great experience as we worked to make this the special event that they could remember forever! Your guidance and expert advice helped so much! Not only did we have a great planner, but we made a new friend! "

    "No words can express my appreciation for the wonderful job you have done executing my daughter's wedding other than "thank you." You have a great eye for detail and personal finishing touches. You made the wedding day flawless, exceeding our expectations. All was well put together and we received nothing but praise from our guests... thanks to you."

    "I began planning my wedding on my own and it ended up being much more difficult than I had thought!! I decided that I needed someone to be there the day of to direct the wedding and also to create a timeline to send out to vendors and the bridal party. I interviewed a couple of planners and Joy was definitely the most responsive and knowledgeable! She quickly started working her magic and in no time I had a timeline and vendors ready to go.

    She did a fantastic job at the rehearsal and at the wedding keeping everyone's attention - I don't think we were off schedule on anything! Joy was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone who needs assistance planning or executing a wedding! :)
          Adria M., Raleigh, NC

    "We had weddings for two of our daughters within four months of each other. One was a destination weekend long event, and the other on a cruise boat on the Potomac. With Joy's help, both weddings went off without a hitch. I could not imagine trying to keep everything organized and on schedule without her! I would give her ten stars if I could. She was a blessing to our family. I would highly recommend her wedding planning services to anyone."
