You've dreamed of this day since you were a child, and now that day is becoming a reality. We can help you make all of your dreams come true. Planning your wedding can be the most exciting times in your lives, and can also be the most stressful. By allowing us to help with the planning, we can lift most of that stress off of you, allowing you both to enjoy what should be the most romantic times of your lives. We have packages to meet every need, from full coordination to "Day of only" services. We offer 3 basic packages, but since no 2 situations are the same, we can customize any package to fit your needs. We also offer floral design, officiating, invitations, favors, candy & dessert buffets and gift bags for overnight guests. We have a list of preferred vendors who we work closely with, that will help to complete your perfect day. We offer a free, no obligation consultation. Give us a call or drop us an e-mail, and we can set up an appointment. Read less

I hired JoAnn & Heidi 3 years ago to help plan my wedding. It was the best 3 years leading up to my wedding. Anything I wanted they executed. I gave them all my ideas and they made it happen. We definitely builded a great relationship. JoAnn was always there for me with good advice and as someone to talk to when I was stressed. They are both very personable, professional, have many great ideas, and suggestions. JoAnn and her employees made our wedding day everything and more. I wish we could do it all over again. I have and will continue to tell everyone about What Dreams Are Made Of and Cherry Brandy. I know I will hire them for another event in the near future. Again thank you sooo much JoAnn, Heidi, and the rest of the crew for being so amazing!

JoAnn and her team did a very nice job with my wedding. There were 10+ outside vendors to be managed and the wedding was a backyard wedding, so there was a lot of work involved in organizing and planning everything. Even though we only hired JoAnn for "month of" planning, she was very helpful outside of that month- even 6 months before our wedding- with vendor suggestions and planning tips and always got back to us very quickly. We did not live in the area where we got married so it was incredibly helpful to have JoAnn who seemed to know each of the vendors very well help us pick what would be best for what we wanted.
Because of the nature of our wedding there were a couple of hiccups in the days leading up with a couple of vendors but JoAnn handled it well and most importantly, everything ran smoothly on the day of our wedding and I know she must have played a big part in that. I was too busy enjoying myself to pay much attention to if everything was running smoothly or not- which probably means JoAnn was doing her job very well! I got many compliments with how nice our wedding was and how smoothly it all seemed to go.
Overall we were very happy with how our wedding turned out and we would recommend JoAnn to anyone who needs a wedding planner in the Sullivan County area!

What Dreams are Made of was the most pleasant experiences of my wedding planning. I first contacted JoAnn after finding out about her on this website, I am so happy I trusted this website to find What Dreams are Made of. JoAnn had come to me in one of the most difficult times times of my life. Although I was thrilled to be engaged and ready to start a new chapter in my life, my mother had just passed away. I was lost and saddened that she would not be here to help me prepare for my special day. JoAnn assisted me through my grieving process by putting the excitement back into my life with her wedding planning expertise. She went above and beyond my expectations by being along side with my when I tried on my first wedding dress to holding the back of my train before I took my walk down the isle. She was knowledgeable about wedding venues (which she came with me to view), vendors, flowers, budgeting, designs, and even memorial ideas in honor of my mother. The time and passion she puts into her work is incredible. I would recommend her for small weddings to large grand events. There is nothing that What Dreams are Made of did not make possible for my beautiful wedding day. It was what I had always imagined, and all for a very fair price. To anyone contemplating What Dreams are Made of my advice would be to trust the wonderful reviews and go for it! Not only did I receive phenomenal service I made a friend for life.

I found What Dreams are made of through a friend who had used them to plan her wedding. I mainly needed help because I was too busy with work, school, and honestly wanted no part in planning a wedding. JoAnn was wonderful from the beginning. She helped me select a site, found the caterer, flowers, did the decor, organized getting the booze, rentals...just everything! It could not have been any easier! She was there for me 24/7 via text and email and was a great consultant, friend, and planner! THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!

We hired JoAnn and company as day-of event coordinators after we had to part ways with our previous wedding planner. The difference in service between our previous planner and What Dreams was remarkable. In addition to handling everything we asked for, they were proactive in addressing problems before they happened, and adding service we had not thought of. One example: JoAnn called our bus company to make sure the buses we rented had air conditioning, even though we hadn't thought to include that. They also had existing relationships with most of the other vendors we were using, so that made things go very smoothly.

JoAnn provided week-of coordination for our wedding and I could not have been more pleased. Her responsiveness was perfect - responded to emails and phone calls within, at most, 1 hour and usually within minutes. I was unsure of how to handle certain situations, but JoAnn had the knowledge and assertiveness to get things done quickly and efficiently. Her rapport on the day of our wedding was just perfect. She was there when needed but did not interfere with the flow of the wedding. My hair stylist canceled the day before the wedding and she worked diligently to help us find a replacement. Most of all, she eliminated any stress the week before our wedding and allowed us to spend much needed time with our families who we don't get to see very often (we live in Maryland and our parents live in NY and AZ). I would absolutely recommend JoAnn and What Dreams Are Made Of without hesitation.

My wife and I we're married last weekend. Like most weddings, this took months of planning: we had the perfect setting for the ceremony, another gorgeous setting for the rehearsal, the flowers, the invites, even color coordinated drink stirrers...

As independent New Yorkers, we thought we could do everything ourselves. As I mentioned, we already planned every detail, even those color coordinated drink stirrers. No need for a wedding planner, right? But, then reality struck. Even after looking over every detail dozens of times, there were still things we missed—the details within the details.

JoAnn was recommended to us and we arranged to meet her for dinner. Before our plates arrived, we could already tell that she was going to be a huge help. Those details we were concerned about. JoAnn solved those before we ordered. The details we never thought about. JoAnn took care of those before appetizers. For desert, she recommended the blueberry pie. “Trust me” she said. And, we did.

While the pie was delightful, JoAnn was absolutely AMAZING. We’ve never, been able to call someone with the ability to answer every question we had. Not only that; but, every question was answered with a simple phone call or email. More importantly, JoAnn took care of many details before we even had time to worry about them.

She made our special day calm, easy and delightful. In short, she was one of the best choices we have made as a couple. If your looking for a wedding planner, start your search by making a dinner reservation with JoAnn.

JoAnn Is an excellent source for information, resources and overall help. I cannot rave about her communication with me and my husband enough. She took care of things that we had no idea to even think of and addressed hiccups likes champion! It may sound like hyperbole but I wish we could use Joann's help going forward too but I will have to settle for recommending her highly to anyone getting married in the Hudson Valley.

JoAnn and her staff stepped in the week before my wedding and saved our special day from an incredibly unprofessional planner who left us high and dry. She was sympathetic, yet focused and determined to give us our day the way we had envisioned. She and her team met with many obstacles, including procuring a tent and all the rentals, and dealing with vendors who were close friends of the former planner. She never passed these stresses onto myself or my husband, and at the end of the day, JoAnn and her team saved our wedding. We cannot express our gratitude enough, and I only wish we had hired her sooner.

We had gorgeous lighting, beautiful tall candelabras, beautiful tall center pieces, gorgeous linens, and the list goes on. She definitely helped us stay on budget and save money:)She made our candy bar gorgeous and our centerpieces were to die for:) Joann was great and we definitely recommend her services:) It really was a pleasure working with Joann:)

JoAnn did a fantastic job coordinating our wedding. We got married at a private residence on a hillside, which required bringing in ALL vendors and services that you would normally get at a banquet hall. Her knowledge of the area's best and most reliable vendors, as well as her willingness to work with new ones, made it all possible. She handled all of the relationships for us - we just had to explain what we were looking for. JoAnn always fought for our interests whenever necessary; she also provided a good sounding board for decisions. She has very good taste as well. We would highly recommend JoAnn to anyone!

When Tom and I decided to get married in the Hudson Valley, we were so unsure of who to turn to for help. A colleague of mine who had used her a few years ago had recommended JoAnn to us so I gave her a call. I felt so comfortable with her from the very first phone call. She was calming to speak to. She assured me that my wedding day would be spectacular without any added stress. She was right! She handled all of the planning and made our day a day to remember. My guests are still calling me to say how beautiful everything was. We had a dream and JoAnn and her staff made it happen! I would highly recommend her to any bride, especially if you are doing a tent wedding. There were so many details and we didn't have to deal with any of them. Her fee was well worth it, as she hooked us up with vendors that gave us such great deals that we ended up saving more than what her fee was. Her staff, Farrah, Heather, Tiffany and Amy were so professional and sweet. Our day was perfect thanks to all of them.

She was caring, helpful, and so much fun. She made planning our wedding delightful. I often felt like she was a family member! Our wedding was wonderful. We were concerned about staying on budget and with her help and vendor discounts, we actually stayed way under budget. we definately made the right choice.

I could not have been happier choosing JoAnn to help me deal and handle the stress of planning a wedding. Every single detail was perfect, and she made sure of it. She knows how to get the best prices and negotiate with other vendors; her professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail helped me have the wedding of my dreams without going over my budget. Anything I needed, she was right there to assist me. Even when I forgot my makeup bag at my house, she went and got it for me. I didn't have to worry about anything, it was wonderful! I highly recommend her to my friends and to all brides!

JoAnn was a Godsend throughout the planning process and on the wedding day itself. She was amazing! We were planning our Rockland County wedding while living in Virginia, and JoAnn was able to recommend great vendors, and helped us negotiate contracts and prices that worked with our budget. The week of the wedding, JoAnn worked miracles. A water main blew out our guests' hotel, my husband's grandfather was sick, our priest was in the hospital... all things that could have made our big day collapse before our eyes. She handled it ALL, even calling all of our out of town guests two days before the wedding having gotten them new hotel reservations and then rearranging our shuttle to the reception for the new hotel so they wouldn't have to drive. Absolutely amazing. I cannot imagine doing it without her, and of all the vendors and services on the wedding day, she gets my (and my husband's) highest recommendation!!

One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Jo Ann and her staff to plan our wedding. We had to cut back on our budget and just when I thought that we may need to either cancel or postpone the wedding, Jo Ann came up with some really great ideas to save money. She also hooked us up with some great vendors that were willing to offer us some really nice discounts. We really didn't have to sacrifice much. Her assistant, Farrah did our centerpieces and that saved us a ton of money. And they were just beautiful. They were exactly what we had wanted. We saved a lot on menu cards, ceremony programs and escort cards because she helped us out by printing them for us. The few extras that we were forced to give up weren't even noticed by our guests. Everyone had a great time. Thank you Jo Ann for helping us to have the wedding that we had always dreamed of!

Leading up to our big day, JoAnn and her team were absolutely amazing to work with. JoAnn answered every email, question, and request promptly and efficiently. She also did everything in her power to keep the costs within our budget while still achieving everything we envisioned - her strong relationships with other local vendors helped us score an affordable and excellent DJ. Additionally, she made herself totally available to us the week of our event, which really helped us feel at ease about the wedding day. Most importantly, she took all of our various ideas for the reception, guestbook and place cards and completely nailed the set up. The room was exactly how I imagined it to be - absolutely perfect. We didn't have to worry about a thing. JoAnn is wonderful!

One of the best decisions I made was hiring JoAnn and it is totally worth spending the money to have a Day of Coordinator. I know that she was a big part of things going well at the venue (and if there was anything wrong, I never heard about it because of her). Her staff helped set up our room perfectly. They made sure all of our many items were packed up and put in my parents' care. She was more than just a day of coordinator-she helped us so much in advance, especially with resolving some issues we had with our reception venue and communicating with them. She was just such a reassuring presence throughout the day and in advance and I felt very confident because I knew JoAnn would be taking care of everything. She also got along with my parents extremely well and just felt like extended family. The only negative I can say is that I wish JoAnn and her staff had exerted themselves a bit more during our receiving line and pushed guests to move through it. We hadn't talked about this in advance, so I hadn't told her to and I'm sure she didn't want to get too bossy with guests or our wedding party, but I would have liked it. The slowness of the line was really the only thing that "went wrong" at our wedding so that's not much of a negative anyway. JoAnn is also extremely reasonably priced. You won’t go wrong with her. I highly recommend her and her staff.

JoAnn and her staff made our wedding venue look beautiful. They also made a beautiful bridal bouquet, which received many compliments, and found a bus service to transport guests that was very affordable compared to estimates we had received from bus companies. Great job.
