The love of husband and wife is the force that welds society together.
- St. John Chrysostom
You may notice that we don't have package titles like "Day of Wedding Coordination" or "Weekend Wedding Management". Those terms can be slightly misleading, since it's not possible for us to be part of your celebration for just a day. You've likely been planning for months, maybe even years, and our services reflect that. We take as much time as needed ahead of your wedding day to prepare, whether you need a little assistance or a lot!

~ Unlimited communication! We love to be available to our couples, whether it's a midnight text or a coffee date to catch up on your plans.
~ A two person coordination team. We prefer to work as a team to ensure that your day is covered to the very best of our ability.
~ Our signature liturgical consultation and recommendations, along with spiritual encouragement and personalized prayers to accompany your practical plans.

For those who have planned the majority of their wedding but would like assistance with the wedding weekend and various small details. Similar to what is often called a “Day of Wedding” coordination package, our work actually begins months before your wedding day. This option will have us covering all the elements of your wedding, from the early stages of liturgical planning assistance and pre-wedding prep until the last guest has left the reception!
Perfect for those who just need assistance making their church celebration come together in the most cohesive & reverent way possible. Also ideal for couples who have selected another wedding planner/coordinator, but want our expertise on the Nuptial Mass or Liturgy of the Word ceremony.
For those who would like us to design, plan, and coordinate a complete vision for their wedding celebration.

We are happy to help with celebrations of any size and will work with you to customize our package (and price) to fit your needs.
Yes, we only serve Catholic weddings that take place under the authority of the local bishop. Catholic weddings are our specialty, and we wanted to create a business that caters to the sometimes complex set of guidelines and traditions that are part of a Catholic wedding ceremony. If you are a non-Catholic bride or groom who is looking for a planner or coordinator, feel free to contact us for recommendations!
A Liturgy of the Word ceremony instead of a full Nuptial Mass is the most common celebration when both are not Catholic and it provides an amazing opportunity to extend hospitality to the family of the non-Catholic bride or groom. Choice of parish, priest, readings, and music can add to the harmony of celebrating our common belief in Jesus Christ and the sacredness of marriage. We can help you plan a ceremony that fosters unity and inclusion!
Most Catholic Churches have a coordinator or hostess to give you access to the church, run the rehearsal, and help get everyone down the aisle. While parish and reception venue coordinators are typically very efficient at what they do, they work for their respective sites. We work for you- the couple! You're our priority, and we are there to serve as liaison and to advocate for your needs on your special day. We will work alongside your on-site coordinators and all your vendors to make sure no detail is left behind.
"Joy and Mary filled in all the gaps for the event. They took such a load off my mind and were there to make sure that all the details, especially those that I couldn't manage myself or had overlooked, were covered. Thank you Joy and Mary, for giving me the opportunity to truly enjoy my daughter's wedding."
