Our daughter Sonia got married on March 29th, 2014. While preparing for it, we hired Schwartz and Woodward for complete planning of this big event in our life. The owners of this company Jo Ann and John were very personable yet absolutely professional in their dealings and services from start to finish. Jo Ann was very receptive to our wishes and desires in how we would have liked our event to be. She replied to our emails and calls very promptly. They both together helped us stay on track the many months leading up to the pre-wedding festivities and then the wedding day. All the detailed organizing aspects of the wedding were finalized in a very timely manner. All the appointments were kept very timely as well. Jo Ann herself was present at every single appointment with each vendor, and facilitated in the communication with them.

The most spectacular part of the wedding planning was on the event days, march 28th and 29th, when JoAnn and John watched over and coordinated with each vendor so personally to make sure all was moving along in a timely manner. And the whole setup on both days was done so exquisitely that it was beyond all our expectation and imagination! We were speechless and were sure that it couldn't have been so meticulous if it hadn't been for their complete dedication to the commitment they had taken on 12 months prior to our daughters wedding.

Jo Ann had been very actively. Involved in the event planning all the way through, but how John came through on event days was amazing too. He was there supervising every detail with just as much passion, even helping the groom with his bow tie and his boutonnière before the reception time. Their staff of two other assistants were an added asset, as they were helping my daughter stay calm and stress-free while she was getting ready for each event. They all stayed at the event till it was completely over. Overall, it was a beautiful experience working with Schwartz & Woodward.

The best thing I did for my wedding was hire Joann from Schwartz & Woodward to help me plan my dream wedding. Joann was exactly what I needed to help me with all the details and make it all come together for one of the most memorable days of my life. Indian weddings include days of events and lots and lots planning. It was so important to me that I picked an experienced, detailed orientated and honest wedding planner. During our first meeting, I just knew Joann would make the wedding planning easy and less stressful for me. She was so good at listening and understanding me. Top it off, she is a great person.
For Joann it was all about the details!!!! And I am all about the details!!!! Joann made all the little and the big details come together so effortlessly. It was so important to me, that our wedding events had something unique, something our guests would enjoy to be a part of and always remember. As a team, together with all our other great vendors, we accomplished that. All our wedding events were absolutely beautiful. I look back and I can honestly say my wedding day was a “dream come true.” BUT I couldn’t have done it without Joann and her team.
I would definitely recommend Schwartz & Woodward to plan your dream wedding.

JoAnn was excellent from the day we met her! She spent countless hours with us from picking vendors, meeting with vendors, and preparing us for our big day. Her knowledge, insight, and experience were priceless during the months leading up to the wedding. Anytime we felt pressure from vendors we let JoAnn know, and she never hesitated to step in for us to mitigate the situation.

On the day of the wedding JoAnn and her team went above and beyond any of the expectations we had. Making sure vendors were on time, events ran on schedule, and minimized our anxiety as much as possible. What I found even more incredible about JoAnn is that weeks after our wedding she took the time follow up with us to make sure we were happy with our events and received everything we were promised by the vendors.

Having a Indian wedding with multiple celebrations can pose unique challenges. JoAnn was professional, patient, and worked to integrate the needs of both of our families to seamlessly pull off a wedding that our relatives and friends cannot stop talking about months later!

If you want a wedding that will exceed your expectations and wow your guests Schwartz & Woodward is the way to go!

JoAnn Woodward (Schwartz & Woodward) is the best event planner in town. Also the other venders she recommended were fantastic and exceeded expectations. Joann starts out as your planner but becomes a trusted friend as well. She patiently worked with my daughter who is picky and has difficulty with decisions. She guided us to the proper venders, those that fit our budget, size wedding etc. When we chose others we always went over budget which in our case was fine but if you have a hard budget she will keep you on it. JoAnn knows her business and if she's in charge you can just sit back and enjoy.

My daughter's wedding day was beyond perfect and exceeded our expectations. Thanks in large part to JoAnn and her team everything ran perfectly and it was the most relaxing day...totally PRICELESS. When I look back it is with so much joy and gratitude to JoAnn. You can't go wrong with JoAnn. She is professional, honest, knowledgable, enthusiastic and you just know you are in good hands. I recommend her completely with no reservations.

Jo Ann was the consummate wedding professional. She knows what she is doing and even if you are a control freak (not naming any names….:) She can be trusted to pull off the biggest, best day of your life. The day went soooo smoothly, and my family was thrilled at the service all the way through during the engagement. She has relationships with the BEST wedding vendors in the city and they go out of their way for her brides. She has expertise at what's really important and will save you money with her knowledge.
I think without her, I would have given up on half my ideas and just had a cookie cutter wedding because it would have been easier and I am busy all the time with work. But she took the reins and make sure I didn't have to settle. During the actual wedding we were very thankful that she was in all the right places at the right time, pulling us here and there and keeping us on schedule. We have more awesome pics to remember than if we had just stayed on the dance floor all night. Her husband is incredibly helpful- he even fixed my bustle when it fell down! I was very thankful for him and the rest of the little "team" (she brings a team the day of to her big weddings) I felt so so special, and like my needs would all be met, which was a relief.
To throw a huge black tie wedding with different external vendors AND some family drama thrown in, truly takes a village, and the perfection that was our wedding night couldn't have happened without her. Jo Ann was the conductor of our beeeeautiful wedding symphony. My family and I are forever indebted to her & her husband for making our wedding so magical. As one friend told us, "You have raised the bar for weddings." I smiled and said “Thank you” but I know where the REAL work lay and that was all Schwartz & Woodward!

Schwartz and Woodward Wedding Planners are the best of the best in Houston...hands down! My daughter, her fiance and my husband & I planned a 400 guests wedding with a seated dinner and dancing for the reception. Joann and John were with us from Day One and gave us a variety of vendors to choose from. Joann and John's professionalism, creativity, and organization were absolutely perfect. The wedding and service were so beautiful and meaningful and the reception venue was out of this world. Joann wanted my husband and I as well as my daughter and her new husband to see the reception before any of the guests....it was out of this world beautiful...the decorations, lighting and linens were simply gorgeous. Joann and John were well worth every penny. If I had another daughter, I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Schwartz & Woodward worked with us to plan my daughter's wedding. My daughter and I are very organized and could have done it ourselves; however, I wanted it to be a wonderful experience for the entire family, so we hired JoAnne. Everything went so smoothly, she answered all our questions and gave us lots of guidance; but I never felt that she pushed us towards any one vendor. She provided good information and let us make our own decisions. Everyone she recommended was first class to work with and goes way beyond what was expected to provide a wonderful product. JoAnne only recommends quality vendors. A year and one/half later, we are still getting complements on our awesome flowers and gorgeous table linens.
My husband will tell anyone whose daughter has just gotten engaged to use Schwartz & Woodward. He says" They allowed me to enjoy my only daughter's wedding!"
I regret I could only give them 5 stars. They are that great to work with!
