My husband and I were unsure if we wanted to use a coordinator as we were trying to keep the cost of our wedding within our budget, and a coordinator seemed like something that we could skip. However, after speaking with Megan, and receiving a very reasonable quote from her, we decided that what she had to offer was worth the price. From the beginning, she was a huge help in our planning! She knew all of the right questions to ask, helped us create a timeline and a detailed to-do list along the way, and was so easy to work with. She worked with our busy schedules to coordinate phone calls and in-person venue visits. Because of her help, when the wedding came, we felt totally prepared! She made our wedding day so low-stress, worked with all of our vendors, and really helped the day run so smoothly! Our wedding was as perfect as I could ever imagine, and we owe so much of that to Megan!
Megan exceeded our expectations in every regard, truly going above and beyond for us. We weren't local to the area, so her help finding and booking vendors and scouting our locations was invaluable. Anything we hadn't thought of, she did. Her attention to detail and commitment to ensuring the day was a reflection of who we are made it incredibly memorable and special. On top of all of that, we had to relocate our beach wedding location a few days in advance and she was extraordinarily communicative with all parties involved and ensured a seamless transition. She made it happen and we are so grateful! We could not recommend her high enough - thank you so much for all your help, Megan!
My husband and I live in Northern CA but our wedding was in San Diego, we went back and forth for months about whether or not we should hire a wedding planner... to say the least, I am BEYOND GRATEFUL that we chose to hire Megan! She is a serious blessing and everything you want/need in a wedding planner. She’s attentive, she takes initiative, she listens, she supports and she’s just an overall positive energy. Before hiring Megan, we had already locked in a few major vendors but she was a huge asset to helping us find the rest of them. She knows the ins and outs of the industry and can help you find exactly what you’re looking for. The planning process was kept so organized with spreadsheets and timelines, things I just couldn’t find the time to do. She sent out emails left and right to our vendors along the way making sure everyone was on the same page and we were getting exactly what we asked for. As the day quickly approached, she kept me sane and reassured me everything was going to be perfect and it was! Everything turned out even more perfect than we had imagined! She paid attention to the details, listened to all our specifics and the day ran incredibly smoothly. I know many people assume wedding planners are out of their budget but Megan’s services are so affordable and seriously worth every penny. Megan is a literal angel sent from above! We are forever thankful for her!
If you're looking for a quality wedding coordinator, look no further Megan is your girl! Megan is not only professional, organized, and extremely good at what she does, but she also acts as a friend. Someone who you can run ideas by and who will be there for you literally every step of the way. She was always available to communicate whenever I needed anything and truly spent the time making sure to understand and fully encompass the vision of my day. Everything turned out absolutely perfect and I am truly beyond thankful for her and all that did for me. She is QUALITY and choosing her as your coordinator will be the best wedding decision you ever make!!!
I am so glad I decided to use a coordinator and found Megan! I planned a wedding in two months and Megan helped me streamline everything with organized online timelines we tracked together, vendor communication, check-in calls, to-do lists, professional experience/advice, and the perfect day-of execution. She kept me sane in the time leading up to the wedding, addressed unforeseen details and decisions that needed to be made beforehand, kept constant contact with all of my vendors, and made sure everyone was on the same page both leading up to the wedding and the day-of. A few unique things I really appreciated about Megan as a coordinator are: -Her Type-A personality (which you need to get things done!) and simultaneous ability to keep you calm and not make things that pop up into big deals during a stressful time. -Her approachability. Megan is professional, but also very approachable. I never hesitated before texting her random questions and she was always so kind and prompt to reply. -I also appreciated that she went with me to view my ceremony and reception sites to get a better understanding of what I envisioned, their layouts, brainstorm ideas, and speak with the managers beforehand. It really helped knowing we were on the same page when we discussed details thereafter. -Her youth, which may sound different, but she could relate to and understand my desire to avoid a wedding that felt too conventional and traditional. She never pressured me to do or feel like I had to do anything outside of my exact wedding desires. -Her affordability. I had the misconception that wedding coordinators were outrageously expensive (and I'm sure some are), but Megan was very affordable and worth every penny! If you want things done right the first time, it's really worth it to hire a professional who knows their game, especially for an event as detailed as a wedding. Most importantly, you want to feel calm and secure on your actual wedding day, and I felt more than confident showing up to mine knowing that Megan had everything handled.
Our venue came with coordinators but we decided to hire Megan Joy Events (per the recommendation of a friend). And thank goodness we did!!! Our venue’s coordination team did not compare to Megan. We mostly hired Megan to help us with our planning prior to the wedding since we were planning it from the Bay Area (and our wedding was in San Diego). We started working together about 10 months before the wedding and she attended all of our coordination meetings - bringing up things I never would’ve thought of on my own and helped to try to get us the best prices. She helped brainstorm things for our vision of the wedding, and offered tons of advice along the way. Once things started coming together she was a HUGE help in coordinating all my vendors, setting up a detailed timeline (this was seriously key) and following up on any and all unanswered questions. She managed all of our vendor contact - which was sooo helpful. Everyone knew to go to her before coming to me so I had a filter before any questions came to my inbox. When our timeline was nailed down, she did a great job of communicating it with everyone and making sure that everyone was well informed. We didn’t have to worry about anything! On the actual day of, we had Montana as our onsite coordinator. She was also amazing!! She made sure everything went to plan and there were no snags in our timeline. I had little gifts for the bridesmaids that I wanted set up before we arrived on site, and she made this happen. We actually ran out of alcohol (twice!) and she was a hero and ran to the store to the grab us what we needed. I cannot thank her enough for doing this! I didn’t have to worry about any of this during the day - she just confirmed once with us and the bar was restocked before we knew it. Not only was Megan amazing as a coordinator but she’s an awesome human as well. She made sure that I was happy with everything and was SO readily available whenever I needed to chat - whether it be about a vendor, or any other detail that came up. I’m so happy that I had Megan Joy Events for our wedding day and would absolutely choose them again in a heartbeat.
"If you are getting married, or planning a wedding for someone you love, please, please call Megan, at Megan Joy Events! Last weekend she made my daughter's dream wedding a reality. This was our first wedding and we really had no idea what we were doing. We fell in love with Megan from the first phone interview. It was obvious that this was more than a business to Megan, she truly takes a personal interest in making this day perfect for her bride and groom. Megan's attention to detail is unmatched, her eye for décor is exceptional, her relationship with other quality vendors is such an added bonus, and most of all, she cares. With Megan and her assistant, Montana, there was not a single thing during the whole wedding weekend, that was not absolutely perfect. She really is incredible. We had so many family and guests comment that this was truly the best wedding that they had ever been to. Being somewhat of a control freak myself, I have never felt so comfortable leaving everything in someone else's hands. With Megan in control, I was able to enjoy the weekend and never once had to worry about a thing. She communicated with all of our vendors, the church and our venue, and had everything perfectly scheduled and executed down to the minute. Ten stars would not do Megan justice, she really is that good. I would recommend Megan, without a single hesitation, to anyone who is planning a wedding. I know Britt and Ryan's wedding weekend would not have been the success that it was without Megan and Montana. We are looking forward to working with Megan again for our younger daughter. She created an absolutely flawless event and I cannot thank her enough!"
Working with Megan from Megan Joy Events was wonderful. I knew from our initial interview that she was the one I wanted to work with. We clicked right away. We had just about a month to plan what was to be a simple backyard wedding that, with Megan’s help, turned into what I always envisioned my dream wedding to be like. Did I mention we had about 175 guests? Megan was on point with her ideas, communication and locked down our vendors quickly and efficiently through to the end. She also managed the rehearsal and wedding very well. It all turned out to be what many of our guests call a wedding worthy of being televised. Thank you, Megan, and your ‘day of’ team for all of the hard work, for going above and beyond, and for your commitment to excellence. You definitely exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend Megan Joy Events
