Apropos Creations, LLC
Jo Ann was a great wedding planner. She truly took time to get to know our story, build a relationship, and learn what we valued as a couple. Her enthusiasm for weddings and creating special moments is clear! We planned our Arizona wedding from out of state in a short span of time and Jo Ann was extremely flexible and responsive to the crazy hours and demands of our schedules. Thank you Apropos Creations for helping to create a wedding people are still talking about!
JoAnn was a godsend for us! She helped us out with the entire planning process from beginning to the very end. We were so pleased with her availability in many forms of communication and follow ups. For being the emotional bride I was, with many life delemas, JoAnn provided comfort, care, concern, and patience, yet managed to get me on task to take care of my responsibilities to get the wedding to run smoothly. I honestly would not have the wedding with out her. Between working full time, working on my masters, and my internship, I had very little time. Thank you again JoAnn!
Jo Anne at Apropos Creations was amazing – we could not recommend her more highly. She is very organized, very efficient, very professional, and also incredibly cheery.
In more detail:
• Jo Anne handled two ceremonies for us (a backyard wedding and a Hindu ceremony) as well as an evening reception over two days. Everything ran very smoothly without any noticeable hiccups.
• Jo Anne was incredibly organized in the months leading up to the wedding, and was always helping keep us on track to get everything done. One thing we valued is that she was always available by phone, email, or text. She also used our time efficiently – we never felt like meetings or calls or emails were unnecessary, which was really nice.
• We gave her a set budget to handle wedding decorations, and the result was phenomenal – beautiful decorations that were much more elaborate than we thought we would get on our budget.
* Jo Anne worked with our vendors well, and handled a few minor day-of wrinkles with the venue with aplomb and efficiency – and made sure that we (the bride and groom) didn't have to worry about anything.
Working with Jo Ann of Apropos Creations was so pleasant, I will genuinely miss working together. I met with and interviewed a few other local planners and found many of them to be a little arrogant and almost made me feel as if it didn't matter to them if they worked with me since they had plenty of other brides lined up. This was never the case with Jo Ann; she is down to earth, friendly and never made me feel like I wasn't a priority. She kept me on task during the last few months of wedding planning and put together some wonderful welcome bags for our out of town guests (one of her "a la carte" services).
A wedding is something so personal, so special that choosing a wedding planner can be one of the most difficult parts. This is someone you will be working closely with! I am so glad that I trusted Jo Ann with this; don't be fooled by others in the Valley with fancy photos, it's all about the person and how they handle you and your wedding and Jo Ann came through when she was needed and made me feel like I could trust and bring anything to her and she would take care of it. At the end of the day when looking for a planner or day of coordinator, someone you trust that can handle things for you is what you need the most.

Jo Ann was an absolutely joy to work with! It's great to have a planning professional on your side because they remind you about tasks you never thought you needed to do and really take a huge amount of stress off your shoulders. She kept me on top of all wedding related tasks throughout the planning process and on the day of, she made sure we didn't have to lift a finger or do a thing but smile and enjoy the day. She was even there for me to call whenever I felt a little stress or just needed to talk ANYTHING through. I highly recommend her services to any bride - choose Apropos Creations and you'll definitely be in good hands!
Jo Ann immediately took charge and took care of everything upon her arrival to the wedding site. My husband and I were very please with her service.
There isn't enough gratitude I can express for what JoAnn did for David and I. I am so thankful for what she did. I knew I needed assistance for organizing our day, since I'm a less than great planner to say the least. There were so many things that I didn't think of that she knew to ask, especially since our wedding was a DIY/home wedding. Our day ended up being an amazing, and I know that if I didn't have JoAnn's help it wouldn't have been as spectacular. Thank you JoAnn for making our day unforgettable!
If you want to actually ENJOY your wedding day, hire Apropos Creations. Jo Ann is worth every penny! My only regret - I hired her for just the day-of. I wish we had hired her to help with some of the planning. During the weeks leading up to the wedding (and especially during the week of), I couldn't wait for my wedding day, because I knew Jo Ann would take over and everything would be okay. We had a very complex wedding with a huge guest list and two full receptions in the same day. Everything was perfect - thanks to Jo Ann and Apropos Creations. This was - without a doubt - the best decision I made... after saying yes to my husband!
We really enjoyed working with JoAnn. It's hard enough to plan a wedding, but factor in not being from Phoenix, starting a new job, moving from the Southeast to the Pacific Northwest, everyone having a suggestion how the wedding should be...tough!
I interacted with several planners before and just didn't get the right feel.
We met JoAnn at the wedding of my husband's friend and were very impressed with her. I'm glad we had her during the last two months of our wedding planning. She was detail oriented and very prompt with her responses. Most importantly, she listened and understood what we wanted for our wedding day, including cultural and religious details. (Thank you for getting me my orchid centerpieces and coordinating with Andrea Torzala for the wedding music!)
We want her to know - we thoroughly enjoyed our wedding, every detail - and that our guests did, too.
Jo Ann pays special attention to every detail. She was always one step ahead of us, so that we didn't have to worry about anything on the big day!!
Jo Ann had a lot of great creative ideas to help with my problems! I knew what I wanted but couldn't picture it! Jo Ann was able to take small pieces of information from our conversations and use it to create magic!!

Why should you hire a wedding planner?
With having access to the internet at all times, we have relied on information through this. I am sure that you already have gone through that. But the bottom line is, it is because you want to relax on your wedding day. Because, you want to enjoy your guests and not worry about the time to cut the cake or if a guest have brought a child to a specifically said "adult reception" only. I can go on and on and on but you already researched this. I could have just cut and paste an article inbto this section and didn't. I will guarantee to you that there will be order during your wedding and if not, it will dealt with calmly with the responsible party.
I hope that I was able to give you insight why you should hire me or another planner. This is what we enjoy doing, let us help you create this moment to remember throughout time.
