Joe Hearn and Adam Straughn were AMAZING. They planned our entire wedding and it was incredibly beautiful. Everything went perfectly, everyone had a blast, and every aspect of their work was top-notch. I am bummed that the wedding is over since that means I don’t get to work with them anymore. Perhaps they can take up life coaching and I can hire them on full time. How soon is too soon to plan a vow renewal? I can’t say enough good things about them.
From the first time I met with Joe, I felt like he knew exactly what we wanted our wedding to be (maybe even better than I did!) and he knew how to make it happen. His vision for the decorations and ambiance at the reception matched perfectly with what we wanted and he gave great suggestions while never being pushy or judgmental about choices we made, even if they were counter to his advice. He recommended amazing vendors who fit our choices and personalities perfectly, even finding us a replacement officiant when ours backed out last minute. Joe has such an amazing relationship with such great vendors and they all spoke very highly of him, even in private. I did zero prep work the day before my wedding (didn’t even supervise!) and I felt almost entirely stress-free because I trusted Joe and Adam to do an amazing job and they did. We just handed a bunch of raw materials over and didn’t give it another thought.
During the wedding, Joe and Adam worked tirelessly to make sure everything happened at the right time and we had everything we needed. I would’ve killed someone if I missed out on Chef Jeff’s crab dip but they had a plate waiting for us after the ceremony. Hopefully I haven’t just repeated the other reviews (which are all glowing and indicate that this was not a fluke for Joe Hearn Events but a result of hard work and experience) but I was so incredibly thrilled with my experience with Joe and Adam that I simply cannot say enough good things about them. Thank you so much, Joe and Adam, for absolutely everything

Joe and his crew are amazing! My husband and I had a few ideas and Joe made our dreams of our wedding into a reality. He took our ideas and ran with it. We gave him a few ideas of our vision for our wedding, and at the first consultation he had a whole room set up with different decor for us to choose from. He did everything from the planning to organizing everything for our big day. He is the most professional and caring man I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He took all of the stress and anxiety away that comes with your wedding day. Attention to detail is one of his strong points. I would highly recommend Joe for any wedding or any event. Joe is simply amazing and will make your dreams come true for your big day!

If you can imagine a bride, giving a wedding planner her wedding vision a poster board and then handing over the entire wedding to the planner, you have Joe Hearn Events. Because we had to keep our wedding small and we are both public figures in the community, it was best to have Joe handle it all. The only thing I did was pick out my dress (with Joe's approval) actually two dresses and get the suits for my son and husband. Joe created magic, true and simple perfection beyond our wildest dreams. He had some challenges with the venue and somehow managed to turn not only a blank, but ugly background, into a gorgeous backdrop to what was the best day of my life. Frankly, there are no words (and I'm a writer) to describe the wedding weekend Joe planned for our families. The attention to detail was impeccable and he managed to keep everything on budget, which kept my husband happy and able to really enjoy the whole experience. Not one for weddings, my husband still talks about the weekend and what a success it was. We owe that to Joe hearns Events. I have the most gorgeous photo album ever and I didn't lift a finger. The only problem is that when people ask me who did the cakes, the flowers, the photographer and what they charged I have to say, "call Joe" he chose them, paid them and everyone delivered above and beyond our expectations. I still couldn't tell you who our DJ was or even what he looked like! If you're looking for a totally stress free wedding that looks like it came right fromn the pages of a wedding magazine, Joe Hearns Events is who you need to call!!!!! Love the memories they created for me and love them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Encore Catering definitely exceeded my expectations! They were able to turn my visions of the wedding into reality and it was actually more than I ever dreamed of! I had a very small and intimate wedding of only 22 guests - locally and with a very tight budget.

From the start I had a good feeling about choosing Encore for my wedding, especially when I met Rachel and Joe. They were very attentive and listened to all the ideas I had, not to mention that they were extremely professional and responsive all the emails I sent prior to our first meeting. Rachel was a pleasure to work with, as she was my wedding planner and I had the most communication with her via email and phone. We were able to meet in person as well at different times to discuss more wedding details and I ended up having Encore take care of the food, decorations, flowers, cake, planning and lighting. My husband and I were able to have a food and cake tasting, which made the whole wedding planning even more exciting.

The food was delicious and everyone gave us complements on our menu choice. That being said, the cake was also delicious and it looked just the way I wanted it! As far as the flowers, I gave lots of ideas to Rachel and gave her links to my Pinterest boards. I told her to surprise me with the flower choices as I had a specific look in mind, and when I saw my bouquet I was completely blown away (the center pieces were also beautiful). I never saw the ceremony or reception site decorated until the day of –and it was completely amazing! I felt like I was living my own Pinterest dream!

The whole crew from Encore was absolutely phenomenal, especially Lister and Jay – as they took care of the food and drinks and made sure everything ran smoothly during the reception. The crew packed everything away after the reception was over and gave us boxes with leftovers. I recommend you book Encore Catering for you wedding! Encore offers exceptional quality of service and flexibility.

My event was not a wedding but an event for over 200 guests. The event had to be keep a secret until about 10 days prior. I thought this might be a problem but Joe kept the planning completely anonymous. My husband and I some ideas for decorations, entertainment and food but Joe and his team took it to a whole new level. The fabulous band, the fantastic food, a signature drink, a carriage ride, and the incredible fireworks were part of this amazing event. It was over the top if I do say so myself. Joe and his team are so creative, there just seems to be no end to the ideas and suggestions from this group. Thank you Joe for making my event the "Best of the Best".

My event wasn't a wedding but a Christmas Party for 200+ guests at my home. Encore catering for the second year in a row over delivered with everything. I wish I did know about them for my wedding because I would've used them and will use them for any event I have in the future. I have used multiple companies listed and can say by far Encore has your needs and your guests needs as the number 1 priority. I look forward to events now that I have Encore Catering to take care of everything. Joe and Rachel are top notch as are the pleasant and beautiful staff that accompanies them.

Joe, Rachel, Cole, and the Entire Encore Team:

I just want to thank everyone at Encore for making my wedding a dream come true! From day 1, Joe and his team strive for nothing less than a happy bride. Everything was above and beyond from wedding coordination, centerpieces, flowers, and just overall love and passion for what they do. It does not matter what problem or request you throw their way, THEY WILL get the job done! Rachel was so prompt and flexible with the millions of emails and text messages I sent her. They contacted EVERY vendor the week of to confirm the timeline for the wedding day. When it comes to the small details, Joe and his team think of things I would have never known to look for. Five stars is not a high enough rating for Encore! Do yourself a favor, and book them for all your wedding needs! Your big day goes by 2 fast, and Encore will do everything in their power to make sure you enjoy it.

Thank you all to much!

I got married about a month ago and used this company. We got engaged about three months before the wedding and I had no idea where to start. My in-laws suggested encore and it was the best decision we could have made. Jo and Rachel met with us and helped us pick a menu. Prior to the meeting I sent Rachel photos and ideas and they new exactly what I wanted, not to mention they thought of things I didn't. We were on a limited budget and they got the best prices possible for us. On the day of everything went perfectly. I do not have one complaint, and my guests all raved about the decor and food. This company went above and beyond for us and really gave me the most beautiful day ever. If you are looking to be stress free choose Encore Catering.
