We hired Joan to be our day-of-coordinator for our September 2012 wedding, and it turned out to be one of the BEST decisions we made!! I honestly don’t know how we could have pulled it off without her. She was incredibly organized, and she helped me keep my sanity throughout the summer by consistently going above and beyond to coordinate with vendors, make timelines and distribute them to everyone, and even make a transportation info sheet to hand out to hotels to give to guests so they knew where to go the day of. The day of the wedding, everything went amazingly smoothly and according to plan, and when a few unexpected surprises came up she handled them without me even having a clue that anything was up. On top of all of that, she was always calm, cool and collected, and always had a smile on her face. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Joan and Five Grain Events to anyone looking for a planner!!
