JoAnn and her crew are incredible. On extremely short notice she was able to put together our dream wedding in Beaver Creek. JoAnn struck the perfect balance of making recommendations, asking us questions, and making independent decisions. In light of our extremely busy... Read More schedules and high stress professions, that balance was PERFECT for my wife and me. JoAnn leveraged her contacts to get us great deals that would have been otherwise unavailable. She understood our vision and executed impeccably. Everybody in attendance was blown away. On our wedding weekend when we has last minute ideas, JoAnn put in extra work to make them happen. We couldn't be happier. Thank you JoAnn!

It is an honor to tell others just how great JoAnn Moore and her assistants are for planning a wedding on relatively short notice and in a different state than everyone who would be attending. She was recommended to me by a friend and from the minute we met over the phone, she... Read More planned a spectacular event which pleased everyone. She suggested a venue, recommended a caterer and location for the meal, helped me find a baker, hired shuttle services from the airport and to the ceremony, provided sparklers and decorations for the dinner, helped with the flowers and gave us a whole bunch more time than I ever expected. I do not exaggerate that I could NOT have pulled this off without her and her great assistants. She knows everybody and where to get everything and you never ask for anything that she can't produce, sometimes from her storage facility. As the mother of the bride, I will be forever grateful to her for making this a day none of us will forget. She is the perfect wedding planner for people who dream of a Rocky Mountain event.

What an amazing experience working with JoAnn from Mountains and Meadows. We live in PA and were getting married in Vail, Co, and needed a professional wedding planner to help us have our dream wedding. JoAnn made the planning process stress-free and enjoyable for us.

From our welcome gifts, to our rehearsal dinner to our wedding, JoAnn has an eye for detail and creativity. She and Mindy were absolutely wonderful during our wedding weekend. We couldn't imagine planning it without them. If I could give them 10 stars I would, highly highly recommend!

We got married at the Vail Chapel and had our reception dinner at the Four Seasons. Joann and her team are terrific, and put together a great event for us. The rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception were beautiful, and Joann's attention to detail is impeccable. We are from...

Joann Moore and her team at Moutains and Meadows were absolutely fabulous! Both my husband and I are from Texas but decided to have a summer wedding in Colorado. We are both in medical residency and therefore did not have a lot of time to plan our "dream wedding". However, with... Read More the help of Joann and her team, we had a wedding that was even better than our dreams. We only had to meet with her once before our big day to relay our ideas and she took it from there! From the vendors to the venue, from the food and drinks to the string quartet, from the florist and all the way down to finding a "dog babysitter" for our precious puppies on our special day, Joann made our day top notch. She knows the best of the best when it comes to caterers, DJs, photographers, videographers, florists, hairdressers/makeup artists and almost anything else you can think of! There is no one else that I would have trusted with our special day. When my husband and I look back on our day, the one word that always comes to our mind is "perfect". Our wedding day (and week) was, indeed, perfect. And a lot of that is because of the hard work of Joann. As a bride, she made sure my every need was tended to. But she also made sure that my groom and everyone else involved was well taken care of. Down to every last detail, Joann was exceptional. Me, my groom and our families had a completely stress-free day because of her. It is evident that she loves her job and wants to make every bride and groom's day exactly what they've dreamed of and so much more! I would HIGHLY recommend her and her team to anybody! She was amazing!
