I'm not sure there are enough words to describe how amazing Sophrona, and her team are! A month after our wedding, and my husband and I still talk about how absolutely amazing they are. We had to re-plan our entire wedding day in less than 60 days due to COVID-19, and I truly couldn’t have dreamed of doing it without Sophrona. She truly went above and beyond during the planning process with finding the best vendors for our wedding, and keeping us on track with everything that needed to be done. We gave her our vision and it turned out so much better than we ever could have imagined. We were so amazed at how every little detail came together with her. As a bride, I truly felt like I didn't need to think about a single thing on my wedding day - they handled everything from set up, take down, timeline… etc. I got to just show up and enjoy the day. Everything went according to plan, and ahead of schedule. Sophrona remembered and took care of even the smallest details we relayed to her. I cannot recommend them enough… worth every penny and more. Thanks for everything Joyful Wedding Day Team!

If we could give Sophrona and her team ten stars, we would. She was absolutely vital to our wedding preparation and wedding day. She stuck with us through multiple Covid postponements. She is diligent, detailed oriented, smart, kind, reliable, prompt, hard working, and fun. She made our planning and wedding such a more enjoyable process. We are ever so grateful and couldn’t recommend her services enough!

We got married on Dec. 28th, 2019 and Sophrona was a life saver. She met with us multiple times to understand our vision for the day and make sure every detail was planned. She also worked with all of our vendors and answered any and all questions they had. The day of was a breeze for us because Sophrona helped coordinate and kept us on schedule. We would recommend her to anyone in need of a wedding planner!

Sophrona helped me plan not just one wedding, but three reschedules and two separate weddings — and both days turned out perfect. When I got engaged in January of 2020, I had no idea that my original wedding date of October 10, 2020, and then the reschedule date of June 5, 2021, wouldn’t occur until June 4, 2022 and that we’d lose important family members and welcome new ones in between. Sophrona took away the stress during these challenging life moments and completely handled the two reschedules. When my husband and I decided to do a small ceremony in March 2021 before our big June 4, Sophrona was on board for that too! Our small ceremony in Arizona was such a special day in the desert thanks to her thoughtful planning. Then, our huge party and vow renewal in Minnesota was incredible. The day went off without a hitch despite us essentially building a venue from scratch (tent! Trailer bathroom! Temporary kitchen for catering!) — vendors showed up on time and where they needed to be, the wedding party was able to relax and enjoy the party, and my husband and I had the best day ever. I’ll be forever grateful for Sophrona’s attention to detail, her relaxed and calming attitude, and for her Joyful Day team. Thank you!!!

Working with Sophrona at Joyful Day Weddings made everything about our wedding easier. She had excellent vendor recommendations, ceremony ideas, and she and her team did all the work from start to finish on our special day. She stayed calm throughout the entire process, even with a few last minute changes we made on our wedding day! I'm so glad we had her help to create our perfect day!

Wedding planning right now is an absolute nightmare since the rules and regulations regarding gatherings are changing what feels like daily. Sophrona was an absolute blessing when it came to pulling my day together, and we couldn't have done it without her. Not only did she run the day of and make sure that everything ran smoothly, but she also helped with so many aspects of planning. She was so sweet. She and her assistant even partied with us on the dance floor! My wife is a very organized person and Sophrona made sure that our wedding day was as organized as it could be. She was a wedding planner who actually participated as well as making our day PERFECT. Thanks so much, Sophrona!

Gabi was honestly so amazing to work with and I'm so grateful that she was a part of our wedding day. She was with me for the entire wedding day itself and made everything stress free and fun. I would highly recommend her to guarantee a seamless and perfect day!

Literally won't have enough room here to praise Gabi and her amazing team! We met for the first time to network and see how our businesses (I'm a wedding photographer) could work together. Our business meeting soon turned into a wedding consultation and since day one, I couldn't imagine hiring anyone else for our wedding day. Honestly, when we met, I wasn't planning on hiring a planner. We were going to "save the money and do it ourselves". Turns out our wedding would have been SO STRESSFUL if we didn't hire Joyful Day Weddings. Gabi and her team coordinated timelines, payments, deliveries, did pick ups and drop offs, tear down, room flips, and more. We literally have no idea what we would've done without hiring a planner!! Take it from me, future brides, BOOK THEM. You will seriously thank yourselves the day after your wedding when you realize your friends and family could enjoy the reception and not tear down and pack away all your fragile decor. Being a bride and a wedding photographer, I can hands-down say that Joyful Day Weddings is the BEST in the business and I would recommend Gabi and her team 11 times out of 10. Superior service, outstanding communication, knowledgeable insights, and the best of the very best out there. Thanks so much, Gabi + team! You made our day SEAMLESS and so perfect!
