    Jo was the best investment made for our wedding day. The service we received made all the difference for our wedding day , she was able to organize all details that she needed to and was happy to help in other areas as well. My husband and I both agree that the money we spent for Jo as our wedding planner was well worth it. Joan-Anne was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone in the Ottawa area seeking a wedding planner, you won't regret it!

    Joan-Anne (Viva la Wedding) was absolutely fantastic. Even though we'd only hired her as a day-of-planner she was on call for advice and questions months before the wedding. We tried to personalize our wedding as much as possible which meant there were lots of little details that had to be kept track of and taken care of on the wedding day and she handled it all with ease. As far as I know, nothing went wrong with our wedding because I never heard a single peep of any of it, Jo took care of it all!

    If you want to actually enjoy your wedding day with your family and friends, and if she is free, I would highly recommend hiring Joan-Anne.

    Joan-Anne was great, she helped us out so much. We really could not have had the day we had without her.

    Joan-Anne was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day because we had NOTHING to worry about. Jo took care of everything - dealing with vendors, ensuring the room was set up exactly how we had envisioned it, making sure we were sticking to timelines, etc. Many of our vendors could not believe how organized Jo was and loved the timelines and spreadsheets she sent to them prior to the wedding. I would recommend Jo to any future bride!

    Working with Viva la Wedding was fantastic. While planning, it was so helpful to have someone in our "corner" who could make recommendations about vendors in our area, who wasn't trying to sell us something, just trying to help us have a great day. Our rehearsal was fantastic; Joan-Anne really made sure that everyone involved (and we had a BIG wedding party) understood what needed to be done on the wedding day, and they (and we!) were thrilled with how it went. And then on the wedding day, Joan-Anne exceeded expectations yet again. I didn't need to worry about anything, because I knew it was under control. We put a lot of work into our wedding, and it was SO GOOD to have everything go the way we planned, without having to do any trouble shooting/double checking on the day of! Plus, when we were planning our ceremony & reception, Joan-Anne made some awesome suggestions that really helped make it a memorable day, and make everything run smoothly. We would hire Viva la Wedding again in a heartbeat.
