Johanna was amazing throughout the entire wedding process! We worked with her for a year and a half leading up to the wedding, and she helped us with everything from finding vendors to customizing all of our choices to help our vision come to life. My husband and I are currently living out of town, and really needed someone we could rely on back in Virginia to help keep us on task with our wedding timeline and to be the go to contact person for our vendors. Johanna was all of that and more, and we never worried that everything would get done and be what we envisioned for our day. She helped keep me calm and sane, which I really needed! She had creative ideas that helped us to express the perfect vision for our wedding. Johanna worked well with everyone in our families and our vendors and we kept hearing only great things about her from vendors. Absolutely go with Johanna for your wedding planner, she is the best!

Johanna was simply amazing and managed to help us pull off a spectacular change of venue 3 weeks prior to the day. All of the guests I spoke with told me that if it hadn't been for the "change of venue" cards that we sent out, they never would have guessed that everything wasn't just as we had always planned it.
In addition, I get crazy at work and sometimes lose track of time for weeks, and she was great at nudging me to make sure I was doing everything I needed to do on schedule.
Johanna was fabulous; I loved everyone that she recommended; my wedding was perfect!! Better than I ever could have imagined.

Johanna was amazing. From the moment I hired her she was my right hand. She set up meetings the whole way and helped me find the best vendors for my budget. Everyone commented on how calm I was and that was because she was so organized. I gave her an idea of how I wanted the decorations and when I saw them I couldn't speak because they were perfect. My husband was hesitant at first to spend the money but he made a comment to me that it was the best investment we made because I could sit back and enjoy everything with no stress. She was instrumental at creating the best day of my life!!!!!!!

When my daughter got engaged, they had 14 months to plan their special day - plenty of time it seemed. After securing a venue and a dress within the first 60 days of her engagement, I made an introduction between my daughter and another event planner. All seemed to be in order and on track. 6 months later, my daughter informs me that nothing else has been done - not one other vendor meeting or contract signed. She is beyond distraught. I stepped in to get the wedding back on track while I started looking for another event planner. Within a week I began hearing about Johanna from other business owners who knew my situation and who knew Johanna. When she and I finally met, I too had become distraught at the momentous amount of work that needed to be done - now in only 8 months. Johanna was a God send! She picked right up where everything had been dropped and got all the plans back on track, which wasn't easy given my daughter's work schedule. When the wedding day arrived, she was on top of the many challenges that occurred - as they always do for weddings - and kept the bridal party in great spirits and on time! (believe me - it was like herding cats with the size of the bridal party and the different personalities interacting.) I am forever grateful that Johanna was our event planner. She ensured that my daughter's wedding day was exactly what she had envisioned. I would highly recommend her to anyone at any stage of event planning, but especially the full package because then you can focus on enjoying your event.

Johanna is THE BEST!!! She stepped in to my life and made planning our wedding a dream come true!! Not only is she super organized and creative but she also knows how to handle every type of person or situation you may encounter.
I LOVE this woman because she is talented and fun. I knew we found the right wedding planner when our "meetings" felt more like leisurely lunches with a girlfriend... but she always managed to keep me on track and man oh man did we get stuff done!!
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and the best day of our lives. I know it would never have been that way without Johanna.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND HIRE HER!!! It will be the BEST money you can spend on your wedding.
Johanna: Thank you sooooooo soooooo much!!! Love you girl!!!!

Johanna was a pleasure to work with! I work with various vendors and event planners and she was one of the most organized I have seen. We worked well as a team and everything came together beautifully to make Melaney's wedding everything she wanted it to be. I cannot say enough nice things about Johanna. She is a great communicator, organized, represents her clients wishes to the "t" and relayed to me all of the client's wants and desires to make this event run smoothly. The day of the event she was on top of things, had a clear and concise timeline and made sure I was in the loop. As a caterer, we love it when a wedding planner has their ducks in a row, because she makes our job so much easier! Thank you Johanna. I would work with her again and again!

Working with Johanna for my wedding was absolutely the best decision I could have made! She is such a wonderful person, who knows her stuff! She was able to meet with me at times that were convenient for myself (after work/on weekends), she was so great at helping me make important decisions about the details I knew I wanted! She was very organized and new all the questions to ask (things I never would have thought of!). My wedding was perfect, and I could not have done it without Johanna and Simplicity Events!
