If you want “ a wedding” you go to a resort where they give you a standard package with limited customization and only communicate with you when it’s close to your wedding day. If you want YOUR WEDDING, you work with Joyce. I cannot recommend working with her enough.
It’s us unfair to call Joyce a wedding planner. During our planning process she wore many hats, but ALWAYS kept our interests first and was adamant about what we wanted on our special day. She was our advocate, she gave us ideas and inspiration, she offered work around solutions, our negotiator and was a true motivator when my fiancé and I were annoyed with planning.
Without a doubt if it was not for Joyce our wedding day would not have happened. She was our eyes and ears visiting locations, and meeting with vendors we were interested in. Joyce was my saving grace when the resort planner was unresponsive.
The flower vendor and baker she recommended were wonderful. Joyce and her vendors were proactive and respectful of our budge. When we requested something they gave us a price and made suggestions on alternatives at different price points which greatly helped us in the decision making process. Whenever I was getting stressed out and worried she constantly reassured me that our wedding would be beautiful. Her attention to detail is impeccable and she thought of things that didn’t even cross our minds.
Needless to say when my wedding day came, I had not a care in the world because I knew everything would be taken care of. Joyce made it her priority to make sure the only thing I needed to do was enjoy myself on my wedding day. Joyce and her assistant were wonderful at managing family and friends on our big day. Our guests had such a great time that one couple decided to do a destination wedding the following year and book Joyce as their planner. Cannot recommend her enough, worth the peace of mind. Joyce went above and beyond the duties of a wedding planner to make our wedding day a dream come true.
