Oh Joyce. What to say about Joyce. She really, truly, goes above and beyond for you. When we walked away from our wedding at the end of the day - we were just so thankful to have worked with Joyce. She executed the most beautiful wedding (I realize I'm biased, but seriously, it was absolutely gorgeous).
My husband and I work and live abroad in Hong Kong - so we were planning our wedding so very far away from Mexico. I had family and friends flying in from the US and Korea; my husband had family in Uruguay and friends from all over the globe. So the whole execution of this was really important to us - We wanted to make sure that all these people flying from so far away (and spending their money) were going to have an amazing experience celebrating with us. I had never been to MX before either, so that added to my anxieties.
There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that Joyce achieved THE wedding for us, and for our family and friends. From the start, Joyce was very kind about my annoying, pestering emails about everything. Obviously we ended up picking one of the very first venues she suggested - but not after I kept looking (and making Joyce look) for a million other places first. Joyce was absolutely right from the start. She suggested Blue Venado because it was an open beach area, with a rustic vibe that could be easily dressed up, and the food/drinks were fantastic.
I was super picky about getting a more glam style even though Blue Venado was pretty rustic. Joyce definitely executed this. I gave her suggestions on pinterest and she understood the vision and executed it perfectly. She was extremely open to our ideas and our wants. She coordinated all the vendors, arranged a pre-meeting during our wedding week (since we couldn't do any site visits beforehand), and made sure we had absolutely everything we needed. Joyce helped us with a family/friends BBQ that we arranged the day before- including helping us get vendors for music, furniture, etc. I really mean - what we needed, Joyce helped us get it. I mean, my family was probably pretty annoying too about the BBQ, wedding, day after stuff, etc. - and Joyce was a pro.
I can't emphasize enough just how special Joyce is and how so very skilled she is at wedding planning. I don't think I really understood this until I saw Joyce in action - in speaking with the vendors and giving everyone their day-of instructions. She really knows her stuff and knows how to get things done.
Our wedding was perfect. Thank you Joyce for all your hard work.
