Just Planned Events was exactly what my husband and I were looking for the month before our wedding. As the little details and demand for phone calls and follow-ups grew, so did our stress and sense of being overwhelming.

Joel, came in and handled it all.

He helped organize the last minute details that were crucial to our successful wedding. Joel was hired as a Day of Coordinator, but put in an extraordinary amount of time leading up to that day. On the day of the wedding, all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. I didn’t worry about finding the flowers because Joel delivered them to me. I didn’t worry about setting up the ballroom, because Joel set up the room for me. I didn’t worry about the location of the gifts, because Joel had them secured. Joel ensured that people were where they needed to be, when they needed to be there. We were not the ones ‘herding cats,’ he was. I highly recommend Joel, and his company Just Planned Events. He will work diligently to make sure that you do not have to work on the day of your wedding.

We can’t say enough great things about Joel and Just Planned Events! First off, you need a coordinator! Second, you need Joel! Originally, we thought we didn’t need a coordinator but as the day got closer, we needed help! We met Joel and instantly felt at ease. He paid attention to every detail, so that we could relax and fully enjoy our day. He took care of everything, things that we didn’t even think of! He is organized, prompt, and so friendly. It was worth every penny! Our day was magical and went off without a hitch largely due to Joel!

Our wedding day was spectacular, it was everything we wanted, and we can say, without exaggeration, that it never could have happened without Joel.

From our initial meeting, it was obvious that Joel was exactly who we needed to make our wedding day vision a reality. His professionalism, attention to detail, problem solving and creativity were invaluable in the planning process. On our wedding day, he was the definition of grace under pressure, acting as a welcoming host to our guests and the point person for our many, many vendors, all while making sure the bride and groom were well taken care of at every turn. At every opportunity, Joel exceeded our expectations, going above and beyond what a typical wedding planner might do. He was generous with his time, and always made us feel like nothing was more important to him than our wedding.

Without question, hiring Joel was the best decision we made. He is worth every penny.

Joel was instrumental in ensuring that our special day went off without a hitch. He provided us with our day of coordination. His ability to get to know us and our elaborate vision one month prior to the big day was spot on. Joel and his staff made our wedding day stress-free and for that he is worth every penny- HE WAS THE BEST MONEY WE SPENT BY FAR!. The only thing my husband and I did the day of our wedding was enjoy the day- Joel did ALL the rest. He and is staff are master coordinators and they think about all the details. He takes pride in his work and works hard to guarantee a worry free event for you and your future spouse. We got married on New Years Eve and the night was nothing less than magical. Joel, we can thank you and your company enough. We love you, thank you so much for being there for us!!

As an event planner for the last 10 years I knew when I got married I would want to hire a professional but I was afraid I wouldn’t find someone who had the same meticulous attention to detail as I. When I met Joel Parra, completely by chance, it was meant to be. From the first second of our meeting I knew he not only understood the industry and the demands of planning a wedding but he was passionate about it. He came with many of his own ideas and suggestions but was also able to hear mine and see my vision as well. When dealing with a type A bride it can be challenging, and he not only met but exceeded my expectations. Do not be fooled by his youthful appearance. Joel and his team are the ultimate professionals. From our first chat until I returned from my honeymoon Joel was on top of all the details. From placing and confirming orders with the vendors we selected together, welcoming our guests and to ensuring the venue was spotless upon our departure. Joel handled it all with skill and grace. There is not a single thing that he had not anticipated and planned including handling of surprise issues and obstacles. His endless energy and enthusiasm were impressive and comforting. I truly got to relax and enjoy our day. All of our guests commented how impressed they were by Just Planned Events and several asked for his contact information to plan their own events. I would not hesitate to use him again for other family events and parties or refer him to friends and loved ones. Thanks Joel! You made our day exceptional and we will never forget you!
