Erin Joyner coordinated my summer wedding. Each time we met, she listened to my concerns and respected my ideas and opinions. When planning the actual ceremony, Erin thought of all the details that would have left me panicked had she not been my wedding coordinator. She has practical tips and lots of ideas.
The week of the wedding, Erin’s calm, cheerful demeanor helped the wedding party and our families stay relaxed and enjoy the special time. Her organization and attention to detail ensured that every part of the wedding and reception was taken care of ahead of schedule and exactly as I wanted.
I highly recommend Erin as a wedding coordinator. My wedding was perfect thanks to Erin!

I highly recommend Erin Joyner as a Wedding Coordinator/Wedding Planner. She helped me to be organized and prepared. Most of all she helped lessen the stress of wedding planning. She would listen to what we wanted, and helped us to achieve it.

She helped me to be organized by helping me prioritize the activities that I had to take care of, which helped the process to be less overwhelming. For example, we would meet, and review our progress and she would say “ok, this week you really need to rent a tent and book a photographer.”

She helped me to delegate, by suggesting that I recruit different crews of people for various activities. We had a relatively simple wedding, and the food at the reception was not catered, so I had a friend in charge of the food. I also had a clean-up crew and a flower crew, which were made up of my friends, on a volunteer basis.

She also helped us by keeping us and our bridal party on task. She helped us to move from one part of the wedding day to another, so that we could leave in time to make our flight. She told our bridal party when they needed to be there for pictures, etc. She also announced to everyone at the reception, that if there was a problem on the wedding day, my groom and I were not to be bothered; they were to notify her instead.

I don’t think I would have enjoyed my wedding day as much if Erin hadn’t helped me. I could relax knowing she was taking care of all the details. Once again, I highly recommend Erin Joyner as your wedding planner. Besides all of the help that she provides, she’s just fun to be around.

“What a relief to have someone by my side through the amazingly wild ride of wedding planning. Erin helped consolidate my ideas and dreams and turn them into reality. Erin used her skills in organization and with much patience directed me to where I needed to go and who I needed to contact. Wedding planning can be overwhelming and hard to keep track of amidst other transitions. Erin helped set my dates and keep track of when things needed to get done. The end product was well worth all of our time spent together. The most wonderful thing about having someone to plan your wedding with is having someone that has listened to all your dreams, all your ideas, and your personal preferences and then trusting that person to make it happen on the actual day of the wedding. I did not have to concern myself with any personal last minute details in regard to the wedding day because Erin was there to guide and clue everyone (including family) in on what was about to happen. Erin was the director and leader of all the things we had orchestrated together in the previous months. Having someone facilitate on the actual wedding day is a must! The bride is much too occupied with the other million excitements that the wedding day contains to concern herself with where the cake should be placed, what goes where, and who does what….
It is a wonderful relief to have a coordinator help plan with beforehand, to rely on during the wedding rehearsal, and to completely depend on during your actual wedding. Erin Joyner was this to me and I am so grateful for her major contribution toward one of the most important and special days of my life. Thank you, Erin.

We are pleased to recommend Erin Joyner as a wedding coordinator and planner. Erin helped us plan our wedding and she was very professional and extremely helpful.
Her knowledge and experience were a valuable resource as we had only vague ideas of what we wanted and had not attended many weddings. She suggested things we hadn't thought of, and in several cases came up with ideas that merged what we requested and what our families wanted.
Her enthusiasm made even the tedious planning fun. She was never pushy and always made sure our desires came first, whether she agreed with them or not.
We feel Erin helped us to plan a wedding that was as unique as we are. Having her help with the details freed us up to really enjoy the day.


The purpose of this blog is to give you more information about me, the weddings that I have planned and the responses of the bride and groom to my services. In each post you will find a little note from the bride or groom and a picture from their wedding. The notes were written to me and posted by me. If you are interested in hiring me to help you plan your wedding, please send me an e-mail and I will contact you.
