The first thing I have to say is wow! Johanna made our wedding day absolutely perfect. The month leading up the wedding we talked regularly and she was always willing to let me bounce ideas off her and give suggestions and solutions to any problems that arose. She is a true fountain of knowledge when it comes to everything wedding. Her vendor recommendations are all top notch and we used many of them for our day. Johanna is extremely organized and creative and made sure every last detail (even ones I never would have thought of until it was to late) were taken care of and planned out by the minute. The day of our wedding both my husband and I were truly able to just enjoy it. We had nothing to stress over, nothing to deal with except sipping champagne and awaiting our cue to start the day off! Another great service she offers is a variety of items for rent which is extremely helpful because who wants to own 50 glass hurricanes?? My entire family loved working with Johanna, she truly takes the time to get to know you and your wedding party so that everything flows smoothly. I can't say enough great things about Simplicity Events! You can't go wrong with Johanna, she is worth every penny!

Johanna was my day-of wedding coordinator and I couldn't have been happier with the results of all her hard work. I only rated her 4.5 on Value because she comes at a slightly higher price than many of her peers, but those extra dollars are worth every penny.

Each and every vendor we worked with had high praise for her efforts, her clear delivery of vision, and her communication skills. I couldn't agree more! Johanna's ability to "sense and respond" in the moment were excellent, with her years in catering, hotel services, and event management clearly on display.

She helped me and my partner around every turn - pointing out areas where further thought and development of ideas was needed. In the end, each piece of the puzzle fit perfectly with all the other pieces and that is because of Johanna.

All of my guests expressed how our wedding was "THE BEST" they'd ever been to and I credit Johanna for that success.

Where do I begin with Johanna? Since our first meeting back in September up until the last sparkler went out on our wedding night, Johanna was supportive, prompt, organized, reassuring, and guided me through the process of planning. She is wonderfully patient and enthusiastically responds to any questions (for which I had about a thousand), all while steering me through timelines and details that I wouldn't have ever thought of. On the wedding day, weather threatened to possible move our venue inside, and Johanna quickly took control and redirected the placement of flowers, chairs, etc. She was present and engaged from the rehearsal through the ceremony and reception, gently and discreetly guiding us to each new event of the evening, keeping everything on time and smooth, which allowed us to have fun and mingle with guests. On a final note, Johanna is simply gracious, respectful, funny, and it was an absolute joy working with her- I honestly can't imagine how my wedding would've been without her!

Johanna was flexible enough to put together a wedding planning package to help guide and advise us early, and then take over vendor coordination 2 months before the actual wedding date. Johanna worked tirelessly to insure our wedding was everything we ever dreamed, and more. She gave us her honest, professional opinion when we needed/asked for it and then followed exactly what we decided. On our wedding day, Johanna ran the show, single-handedly, with such apparent ease that no one except the vendors realized she was there. From the beginning, we trusted Johanna implicitly and she was our rock that allowed everyone to enjoy themselves, without worry, to the fullest!

I feel like on the scale of 1-5, Johanna deserves a 10 in my book! She was the best decision we made when it came to selecting our vendors. Not only was she super responsive and on point with EVERYTHING, she was there for me emotionally. I am a super organized (wannabe) perfectionist and she eased my nerves with how organized she was! She literally has done this a billion times, so she really does know what she is talking about. She gave us great recommendations and suggestions when it came to what works best and what doesn't, grounded me back down to reality when I started spiraling out of control and she made sure EVERYTHING went off without a hitch on our big day. The best part about working with Johanna is I didn't feel like she was someone I hired, I felt like she was my friend helping me out with my best interests truly at heart. She was a great listener and told me the truth when I needed to hear it and she made sure our big day was PERFECT - which it was :) Big thanks to Johanna! I would highly recommend her to ANYONE having a wedding - no matter how big or small - she will make your life SO MUCH EASIER!!!!!

Johanna was simply amazing! From the first time we met her, she eased all of our concerns about how our wedding would go. She was extremely organized and thorough. At the same time, she was quite flexible when it came to our wishes. On the day of our wedding, she helped keep us calm and made sure everything ran smoothly. We can't imagine how we would have gotten through our wedding without her!

My husband and I got married on 2/27/2016. Since then, I've been trying to figure out the right words to describe how much we appreciated Johanna's help for our wedding. We hired her as our day-of coordinator, and since we planned to marry in the off-season, Johanna was incredibly flexible with our needs and her pricing.

Johanna made sure that she was completely informed, with copies of all vendor information, and she provided us with spreadsheets to stay organized ourselves!

A few weeks before the day we did a walk-through at the site (the same for both the ceremony and reception). Johanna was ON THE BALL, making sure that everyone - myself and my husband, the inn owner, and the caterer - was on the same page. She has such a confident, yet comforting, presence that despite my growing stress levels, she made me feel calmer.

Johanna was our true godsend for the day of the wedding. I can promise any couple that selects Johanna as their coordinator: She will guarantee that your day is amazing. She made sure that the guests went where they needed to go, the processional went perfectly, and the dinner and toasts went smoothly.

Finally, I will never be able to express my thanks to her enough for her efforts with our reception. We decided to be a little unorthodox - instead of dancing, we wanted to set up drinks and snacks and board games for everyone after dinner. These would take place in the hall where the ceremony was held, so while all of the guests were having dinner, Johanna coordinated people to help move chairs and tables and then set up the games and snacks in the most perfect way. An example: she set up the Scrabble boards with letters arranged spelling out "love." Such a small detail that I would have never thought of, but that's Johanna.

I can't recommend her services enough. Johanna put 100% of her efforts into helping us have an unforgettable wedding. It was perfect, and I attribute so much of that perfection to her.

As a wedding professional photographer myself, I knew that when we decided to have a 20 year vow renewal ceremony we only wanted the best with all of our vendors. I knew that turning to Johanna to handle the planning and logistics was the only way to go. She kept me on track, helped talk me off the ledge on numerous occasions but most of all she made the day run so smoothly that the last thing I had to worry about was the 'behind the scenes' --- every time I turned around she was there with a smile and simply focused on us being happy! Johanna - I couldn't of asked for a better planner and calming voice during our event. Having Johanna as part of any special event is the way to go... she is on your side while you get to enjoy it all!

Johanna was a terrific wedding planner for us!! She was a wonderful combination of efficient and warm, friendly and business-like. She was a quick study of our personalities our wishes, sensitive to the balance of help and independence we wanted, was insightful about offering alternatives, was never pushy, and went out of her way numerous times to find the right resource or solution, while making course corrections in the planning when necessary (as it always is). She offered resources, researched others, and gave us useful feedback on our own choices. In addition to the extensive work before the big day, she exquisitely managed the day itself (which have several non-traditional features)--unobtrusively making it happen, yet being at our elbows when needed. Ours was a lesbian wedding and she didn't miss a beat in working with an atypical situation. We were delighted with her work and truly enjoy her as a person. We recommend her highly!
