“If you are looking for an extremely capable wedding planner with a fantastic personality, your search will most definitely end with Joan of Five Grain Events.We hired Joan as our day-of coordinator for our wedding last July, and we could not be happier with our choice. Joan is well organized, knowledgeable, proactive, funny and sweet as can be. I stood up in many weddings before my own, and I’ve seen firsthand just how difficult some planners can be to work with. Joan was just the opposite. She certainly crossed all of her T’s and dotted her I’s, but she was also funny, warm and a pleasure to be around. For a bride, a wedding day can be quite stressful, but because of Joan’s hard work behind the scenes, the day was perfect!
Joan’s services are also quite reasonably priced. We only used her “day-of” services, but that included so much more than getting everything set the day of the wedding. She suggested vendors, met with us a couple times before the wedding, as well as answered many phone calls and emails. She also contacted the entire bridal party a couple weeks before the wedding, to let them know how everything would be playing out during the wedding weekend. She ran our rehearsal, and coordinated all of our vendors to make the actual wedding day seamless.
Joan is AMAZING, and you would be lucky to have her with you on (and before) your special day!”
