JoAnn at Elegant Occasions is amazing! It was so great working with her, from our very first meeting we had an instant connection and I knew she understood my vision right away. I was a pretty creative/hands on bride with a million ideas but didn't know how to carry them out on my own, there were so many things I didn't know that JoAnn opened my eyes to. From her knowledge of our venue to her amazing vendor suggestions, to linens, to candybar to horse and carriage and so many other details, she was very helpful along the way! Her vendor suggestions were out of this world, we were absolutely in love with our florist, photographers and videographer. She was always very responsive on emails (I think I e-mailed her 10 times a day at least, haha!)

Day of, her and her team did EVERYTHING! I could not have made it through that day without her. There are so many little things/ behind the scenes details and dealing with vendors when it comes to weddings that you don't think about and she deals with all of it! I truly had my dream fairytale wedding and it wouldn't have been possible and come together so perfectly without JoAnn. I do not stop hearing from everyone I know that it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

JoAnn of Elegant Occasions is an amazing wedding planner! She is an excellent listener and will quickly understand the type of wedding you'd like to have. She really knows how to take your visions and turn them into the wedding of your dreams! She knows the industry very well, and has endless contacts with each type of vendor. She is very kind and comforting to her clients, but she also knows how to effectively manager your vendors. On the day of your wedding, you will be a guest at your own wedding! JoAnn will coordinate all of the vendors and ensure that you're not worried or stressed. She will be in contact with your for several weeks after your wedding, to ensure you are happy and that everything is taken care of.

Other wedding planners were dismissive of me when I shared my budget with them, but JoAnn told me that we could make all of my wedding visions come true, and she was right! Her industry knowledge and vendor contacts are so robust, that she can work with any client and no request is too big or too small. I definiitely recommend JoAnn of Elegant Occasions as a wedding planner.

I really can't say enough about Elegant Occassions or JoAnn. She is simply the best. JoAnn handles so many weddings and is in demand, but you would never know if from the personal attention and focus she gives you. She's more of a trusted family member than wedding planner! We changed directions many times with what we wanted to do , and each time JoAnn had options and had an uncanny ability to translate what we wanted into reality. We ultimately ended up eloping in Napa, and we could not have done it without her. My dress, hair, makeup, resort, photographer,all incredible and all booked because of JoAnn's magic. Any bride would be lucky to plan her dream day with JoAnn at her side. Highly recommend!

THere are no words to describe how much I loved working with JoAnn Gregoli, owner of Elegant Occasions. I interviewed a number of event planners and instantly knew when I met Joann that she was the right person to help me plan my daughter's destination wedding. She has a great demeanor and is well liked by all vendors. She listens to what you want and then helps make it happen. Planning a destination wedding has a great deal of challenges and she helped make the entire process much less overwhelming. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone.

JoAnn is extremely personable and easy to work with. She has amazing contacts in the industry and is well-respected. JoAnn will direct you to the best of the best and make sure your wedding is flawless. We used her for everything (from site selection to day of coordination). Family and friends are still talking about how amazing our wedding was (from flowers, to food, to band). If you want your dream wedding, JoAnn and Elegant Occasions is the way to go!

JoAnn was absolutely wonderful. My wedding was perfect and it was all because of her. The vendors she suggested were great. She was able to get great prices and the quality of all the vendors was magnificient! She was always available. She had wonderful suggestions and was able to execute my vision. I had the wedding I always dreamed of and it was because of JoAnn and her staff. JoAnn was also great at handling all of the stress that comes with having a wedding. When you get JoAnn as a planner, you are not only getting a planner, you are getting a friend. I would absolutely recommend her as a planner.

JoAnn was recommended to me by a family friend who'd also used her and her team. I have to say, I felt a connection with her from our very first meeting. She made me feel like I had a friend helping me, instead of just a wedding planner. Her husband and partner, Frank was even the officiant for my ceremony (and he did a wonderful job of personalizing it for us). Whenever there were bumps in the road (and believe me, there will be bumps no matter who plans your wedding), she smoothed them over with ease and made all my dreams of the perfect wedding day come to fruition. Even my husband (the skeptic) was amazed at the elegance, charm and beauty that were the elements of our wedding. JoAnn and her vendors created a fantasy wedding for us and now, 6 mths later, people are still talking about it as if it was yesterday. Our wedding was meticulously planned with everything from a very complicated, choreographed dance to a belly dancer team to a viennese hour that would have made your head spin. Every moment was organized by JoAnn and staff and nothing fell through the cracks or fell off the schedule. JoAnn was there for me through each moment of the event - all i had to do was summon her and i had her by my side. Our entire day was one wonderful moment after the other! Oh- and did i mention she also organized all the rehearsal dinner festivities and all the hotel and transport details for our guests? She and her team even assembled the favors and hotel gift bags! She is so much more than a wedding planner - she's a superhero!
PS- many of my family member work in the bridal business and many of my guests were execs in that industry as well... the best part is, i got more compliments from the professionals than anyone!

I have heard horror stories about weddings, stressed out brides, and bad vendors. My wedding with JoAnn (elegant occasions) was flawless – I would not change a single thing from my wedding and there was absolutely no room to improve – it was already a dream wedding. Not a lot of brides can say that!

We were booked a year and a half in advance for our 10/10/10 wedding. Unknown to us, my venue in Newport, RI was in the process of being sold. JoAnn found out before the public did and was able to find several other locations as a backup. When the original venue was sold and my wedding was cancelled 8 months before hand, JoAnn had the backups ready and I had an even nicer venue than our first choice at the same price. She and her team are amazing! They are professional, they have all the right connections, and very creative. There are tons of stories of her coming to the rescue over the time period we were planning the wedding (too long to type).

It was also a relief on me, my husband, and my parents that we did not have to worry about coordinating a thing the day of the wedding. Everything was handled for us and we were able to let loose and have fun.

To me, there is no other choice than JoAnn.

JoAnn was such a pleasure to work with. The moment we met her, we knew that she would make everything perfect for our wedding. She has years of experience, relationships with vendors and has worked on high profile weddings, but is completely down to earth, professional and insightful. She gets to know her clients well, knows what they want and executes their vision. Everything was beautiful and seamless on our wedding day because of JoAnn. I even recommended her to one of my friends who got married recently. It was another beautiful wedding. I recommend her services without any hesitation.

I worked with JoAnn Grigoli of Elegant Occasions on both of my daughters' weddings. The first wedding was in Oct. 2008 and JoAnn was wonderful. She was a great help & wonderful resource in planning a tented wedding on the water in Rumson, NJ and had great vendor recommendations across the board. Her knowledge, experience & overall expertise in all things "wedding" were invaluable. Perhaps most important of all was JoAnn's ability to remain calm in the midst of chaos and her talent in working well with both the bride and mother of the bride. She is a terrific multi-tasker (no surprise there as she is the mother of 6!) and always got back to me promptly in countless emails & phone calls over the course of a year of planning. JoAnn was an organized , calming presence on the actual day of the wedding and it was a great relief to me to know that JoAnn was coordinating all the logistics from the bride & bridesmaids getting ready/the photographers & videographers being where they were supposed to be & on time/attending to last minute crises (no iron in the house, brand new stain on mob's dress)/transportation issues (church was 35 min from reception site)/ and on & on. It was a truly beautiful day/evening and JoAnn was the "ringmaster" while always remaining a pleasure to work with.

The second wedding I worked with JoAnn on was in Aug 2010 for my younger daughter . This was a destination wedding in Newport , RI (I live in NJ and the bride in NY). Again , JoAnn brought all her expertise to bear in helping plan the wedding my daughter envisioned & her special knowledge of Newport weddings & local vendors was just invaluable. Her recommendation of Sayles Livingston as our florist was just perfect ! Again , JoAnn was always available and a voice of calm on the day of the actual wedding. She was fun & easy to work with & always full of great suggestions . She gave us great tips on a rehearsal dinner site as well as on a local clambake vendor. JoAnn was crucial both on "big picture" issues as well as on the countless details (including the various timelines) . The wedding itself was another glorious day/evening - and she even took care of sewing a bridesmaid into her dress after a zipper broke!. Perhaps I should even credit JoAnn with the perfect weather (our past family events usually included boots & umbrellas !)

Overall,I'd rate JoAnn & Elegant Occasions with at least 5 stars ! I have recommended her without reservation to friends & acquaintances. If you're looking for an experienced , professional wedding planner who is also easy & fun to work with yet adept at handling all aspects of "crisis management"- JoAnn is the perfect choice !
