J442 planned every single detail of my wedding. People asked me the typical, "are you completely slammed with wedding planning?" and my answer was always, No!! How awesome is that? Vicki takes care of every detail you can think of (and many you can't!). Her decor taste is... Read More impeccable. I literally just told her the colors I liked and the overall feel I wanted, and she made it happen. I got to just show up and get married! She did my bridal shower as well and it was beautiful and flawless. She can handle anything you throw at her and you can trust that she will do everything with a smile.

The word we use to describe Vicki is "unflappable." She took our wedding and all of its challenges and turned it into a dream. The two words she always said to us when we asked if something could be done? "Of course." Then she would set off to make it happen. And she did. Every... Read More time. She was generous, patient, compassionate, and she sported a healthy sense of humor, all of the things that this bride needed in spades! A week has passed since our wedding, and I have to confess that I miss talking to her. I trusted her implicitly. She became a friend, and I highly recommend Vicki and all of the vendors that she works with.

Vicki was amazing! She took my Pinterest vision and brought a gorgeous wedding design to life. She recommended vendors, and even had her own decor for me to choose from. She kept me informed every step of the way but made sure I never felt pressured. She coordinated a gorgeous... Read More wedding day for us, and I couldn’t be more grateful. I definitely recommend her to make your wedding day everything you could ask for.

Vicki and her team are absolutely amazing! My wife and I met with a handful of wedding coordinators before we met with Vicki and we fell in love with her! She is very professional and took a ton of stress out of planning our wedding. She found us great vendors for everything... Read More that we needed and when she could, she would provide the services herself. She designed our Wedding Invitations and Thank You Cards and they turned out amazing. We had guests that complimented us on just how nice they were. She helped structure our timeline leading up to the wedding and on our big day, we had no stresses in whether everything would be ready for our venue. Vicki and her team made the venue look absolutely beautiful, a complete transformation from the day of the rehearsal to the day of the wedding. She was an blessing for my wife and I and we have told everyone that we know to contact her if they are getting married. We will definitely be using Joyous 442 for all of our big events in the future!

Vicki did an incredible job. I feel like she took the time to hear what I personally wanted and get to understand mine and my husband's style. She kept us thoroughly informed, even accommodated for evening communication so my mom and I could both speak with her at the same time.... Read More Vicki has a gentle calm about her and she is able to get things accomplished without being a bossy planner, which I'm sure was no easy task when it came to wrangling in the groomsmen.

I was SO thankful to have Joyous 442 on board with my wedding! We booked for the day of coordinator package and it was great. The day of the wedding I didn't worry about anything.

If I could give one piece of advice to new brides it would be to hire a wedding coordinator. Hiring Vicki was the single best decision we made in all this. Not only is she a great wedding coordinator but she is an even better person. She was an absolute joy to work with. She has... Read More impeccable taste, pays attention to every single detail and does it all with grace and class. Our somewhat crazy non-traditional wedding was perfect and went off without a hitch. (And if there was a hitch then Vicki made sure I didn't know about it.) We will definitely be using Joyous442 for all of our future events!

One of the best pieces of advice we received when we got engaged - hire a wedding coordinator!! One of the best decisions we made at the beginning of our planning - hiring the RIGHT coordinator. I can't say enough praise about Vicki! From the very beginning she went above and... Read More beyond for us. During the whole process she was quick to respond and get us various and extensive vendor quotes. There were many times she knew little tricks to help up cut down costs and stay within our budget. She knew what questions to ask, and willingly spoke up if she thought a vendor was unfair or unfit. The week leading up to my wedding had a heavy chance of storms all week, including our wedding day. Without even being asked, Vicki worked with my venue owner and our tent rental company to create two different rain plans (only to switch everything back to plan A after rain showers ended at noon the day of our wedding)! I didn't have to coordinate any delivery or pickups because Vicki worked with our venue. My favorite part about having the Joyous 442 crew - I had absolutely zero stress the day of my wedding. I got to focus on being a bride, enjoy the excitement of marrying my husband and being with my girls, Mom, and Mother-in-law all day because I knew that Vicki had it covered. Working with Vicki is a true joy. She has a servant heart for other people, but is bold enough to fight for her clients and make sure their day is perfect!

I am the mother of the bride and we wanted to plan this wedding ourselves, but planning a wedding that is 4.5 hours from home in a rather remote area became difficult. We were overwhelmed; I knew that we needed professional help, but we were still on a budget. From the very...

We hired her for partial planning services and she was definitely a Godsend. She will do her best to keep you on budget and help you to get exactly what you want. She took our design ideas and brought them to life beautifully. Vicki and the Joyous 442 team are wonderful and they took care of every detail on the day of the wedding. Not having to concern yourself with decorating details or any other wedding details on the day of the wedding is priceless. She helped to give my daughter the wedding of her dreams. I will actually miss talking to Vicki now that the wedding is over; she was more than our wedding planner, she became a friend.

Joyous 442 is the perfect name for this group of amazing women. They will add to the joy of your event from start to finish and handle things you won't even think of when you begin planning.

They acted as coordinators for the rehearsal, they kept everything on track all weekend, they served as hostesses for our appetizers, hot chocolate bar, wine area, and candy bar keeping it all replenished. During the dinner they made sure we all had what we needed and treated the bride, groom, and parents like kings and queens....and the best moments? At the end of the wedding evening when this mother of the bride was exhausted as I'm sure they were, too, they had such a calming effect asking what they could do to help us wrap up the event, get our car loaded, etc. Vicki and Chelsey, I can't begin to thank you enough.
