Joie de Vivre Events is awesome! Priscah Musinde is awesome! Priscah is an amazing Event Manager – she very rapidly came up to speed regarding our event, asked the right questions to understand the unique needs and risks. She and her team managed all our vendors very... Read More efficiently. My husband and I could not have relaxed and enjoyed the precious time at our daughter’s wedding but for Priscah and her staff. She was very much at ease with our American, Indian and international guests. She managed the fusion wedding Friday to Sunday with multiple events at multiple locations with great professionalism and won over all the guests. We sincerely thank Priscah and her staff. I wish we had more kids to be married so I could work with Priscah again! I would strongly recommend Priscah and her team any day.


She's got your back!

Our cousin hired Priscah (Joie de Vivre Events) for his wedding and was so happy with her that we decided to bring her on to help with our wedding as well. Our wedding was October 17, 2015 and I'm so happy we had her helping us for the past year to plan this huge event. It was... Read More an Indian wedding with nearly 400 guests at the Hilton Columbus Downtown. Right from the beginning, she was professional and helpful. She kept us on track with our tasks and gave us a ton of helpful insight and advice and watched out for us. She caught things early that could have been a problem (for example, the city couldn't find our parade permit and she realized this and lots of other things we didn't even think of). Our transportation service bailed on us at the last minute and she came up with a solution on the spot. She contacts your vendors and makes sure expectations are clear and things go smoothly. She has really good ideas and can picture how things should go and how to make it happen. Our wedding weekend was perfect and we could not have done this without her. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding, big or small. Thanks Priscah!!

Priscah was our wedding coordinator and she was fantastic. She was at every meeting, and she knew the questions to ask when we didn't. She made the wedding itself very seamless and we had so much fun!

Priscah and her team helped with coordination services for the last two months and for day-of services. She stepped in just as I was getting stressed out with all of the planning and took the reigns easily and smoothly. There were several times when she offered her suggestions...

When dealing with vendors, we felt like Priscah had our backs as she always asked the questions we didn't think to ask and created open communication with all vendors involved. Our wedding was beautiful-- and we have Priscah to thank for allowing us to sit back and relax and enjoy our day!

From the moment I met Priscah for a consultation meeting I knew she was exactly what I was looking for in a wedding coordinator. She is able to help you prioritize and narrow down your selections, keep you on track throughout the planning process, and bring your vision to life!...

If something went wrong on the wedding day I couldn't even tell you because Priscah orchestrated the entire day and even helped the groomsmen with an emergency lunch order :) Priscah is sharp, professional, warm, and caring. The perfect addition to your wedding plans!

It was a pleasure working with Priscah from Joie de Vivre Events. We used Priscah for our pre-planning wedding services and day of coordination. Priscah is very organized and keeps up to date on weekly and monthly tasks through a online basecamp website. This is very user... Read More friendly and multiple people can be added such as groom and bride/groom parents if they want. Priscah will give you recommendations for vendors to use and suggested vendors she had previously worked with. There is still quite a bit of planning from the bride and grooms side that needs to be done. Once the recommendations are given, you will need to contact them individually requesting pricing information and dates available for trials,etc. Overall, I enjoyed working with Priscah and she was very helpful and organized during my meetings with the sales manager. Things went smoothly on the day of wedding and I did not feel stressed out. Everything went perfect and I couldn't have done it without her help :)

We were extremely pleased with the service she provided and believe that having her as our coordinator the day of our event contributed to the successful execution of our wedding... Read More ceremony and reception. My fiance and I initially did not intend to hire a day of coordinator but as the wedding date approached we realized there were too many details for us to manage without compromising the ability to relax and enjoy our special day. Once we hired Priscah, she quickly jumped into the details (including preparing timelines, reading contracts, and highlighting gaps) and asked helpful and thoughtful questions to understand our vision for the day and provided us with very useful feedback based on her experience. Priscah is organized, enthusiastic, and professional -- all of these things made her easy to work with and we also found it helpful that she already had a relationship with many of our vendors. Priscah is passionate about her job and working with her was a very positive experience!! Thank you for all of your hard work Priscah


SO Perfect!

I used Sabrina because my sister and several colleagues had used her and highly recommended her. I can't even describe how stress-free she made the entire process. Instead of relying on google and friends to pick vendors, she gives you only the best options. She works with... Read More vendors that she trusts and have been proven reliable. I have been to several friend's weddings who did not have that luxury. From controlling photographers to ill-equipt DJs, unfortunately some of my friends were examples of what I didn't want.

I cannot thank them enough for making my wedding day a success!

If you are on the fence about hiring/spending money on a wedding planner, I can totally relate! This is one of the hardest yet most worthwhile decisions you can make for your wedding day (aside from the decision to marry the love of your life – hell yeah!)…whether you are... Read More having a conservative affair or a total blow-out, Joie de Vivre will make your vision fit your budget and will provide more peace of mind than any other decision you could make leading up to your wedding day (except maybe a week-of massage, which I highly, highly, highly recommend – you deserve it!l!). Sabrina knows every single in and out of wedding planning, whether it is the best rate/discount you can possibly get, how to immediately resolve unexpected obstacles (anything from a vendor who doesn’t show up to an in-law who, unfortunately, does), and will force you to smile and laugh while she handles it. It amazed me every step of the way how resourceful and available Sabrina was, how much effort she put into every aspect that I cared about, and how easily she made it all come together. If you never want to have a “What the H do we do now???” moment, hire Joie de Vivre and enjoy every single moment of your celebration!!!
