Kind words from our couples

"Janel is an amazing event planner!"

We hired her for our wedding which took place on September 18! I heard about Janel's services through a friend of mine and she did not disappoint. Planning a wedding through the pandemic was a lot of work and I am so glad Janel was there to make sure our day was what we hoped for! She made sure all the vendors were on the same page, our details were together, and was extremely professional throughout.

Janel helped us have our fairytale wedding!

I found Janel from a colleague who worked with Janel for her pop-up wedding. I knew Janel was our wedding planner because she was very personable, organized, detail oriented, and an industry expert! 

We started our wedding planning a few weeks before COVID shut the world down. Our original wedding date was 10/3/20. Janel was an absolute blessing! She made sure we were all set with every vendor for the reschedule.

It was the happiest day of our lives! Everything was perfect!  And that allowed us time to have an amazing PARTY! It was so much fun!
I HIGHLY recommend Janel! I worked with her for full planning. I am a busy professional who travels a lot for work and she made wedding planning a fun stress free experience AND she DELIVERED! Our wedding was EVERYTHING!!! Do yourself a favor and choose Creating Joy!

Words cannot express how amazing Janel and her team are!

She is the consummate professional and went above and beyond to ensure that my wedding was all that my husband and I envisioned.

Things just “clicked” with us from the very beginning, and she checked off all the boxes that I was looking for in a person to plan the biggest and best event in my life!

From the beginning, Janel was attentive to all my needs, and she made herself available to me even during days/hours that most planners would have restricted. I heavily relied on her expertise to secure industry-leading vendors, create design elements that would be unique to our wedding, and execute our day-of-wedding coordination.

On the day of the wedding, I was so calm because I knew that Janel and her team had everything under control, and I knew that our ceremony and reception were going to be beautiful…and it was absolutely perfect! If you are looking for a planner in Atlanta, I recommend Janel 1000%, you will not have any regrets!

The Creating Joy Events Co. Signature Experience

Our all-inclusive, worry-free process



After we say yes to each other, we’ll walk you through your private project management system, so you’re never left in the dark about where we are in the planning process. We’ll also develop a realistic budget and we’ll keep a close eye on where every penny goes. Our tried-and-true system is the best way to alleviate overwhelm and ensure we have the information we need to get the job done right!



Our planning and designing sessions will be scheduled in advance so you will know exactly what to expect. Got any burning questions during the process? You’ll have all your answers in no time. (And we’re always there to lend a friendly ear!)

Planning and designing


Our couples receive a comprehensive design guide, which outlines everything, including color scheme, invitations, linens, rentals, floorplan, day-of decor, and much more. We’ll collaborate on this plan until you’re nothing less than thrilled.

Comprehensive wedding roadmap


You can fully enjoy your engagement while we manage all the vendors during the production process. Just some of the tasks we’ll take care of behind-the-scenes are confirming quantities, sizes, dimensions, and deliveries of the decor. 

Vendor management


This is where your wedding starts feeling so real! During the rehearsal, we’ll manage our schedule and ensure everything is prepped for your big day.

Wedding rehearsal


We’re there bright and early until the lights go out. We’ll manage the vendor team and ensure the wedding timeline goes as planned. You can trust us to make sure your day goes smoothly for you, your partner, and your guests.

Wedding Day Management

Starts at $2,950

Wedding Day Management, also known as "Month of Coordination," is perfect for nearly-weds who have completed the majority of their to-do list, but need a professional to step in about 60 days before to execute your hard work.

We will… 

• Serve as your vendor team’s main point of contact and over communicate with them to relieve overwhelm
• Spearhead your venue walk-through to discuss logistics and the final details
• Develop a detailed timeline that will outline every hour of the day, and distribute it to your vendor team and wedding party so everyone’s in the loop
• Manage your ceremony rehearsal so there’s no confusion on the wedding day
• Orchestrate the ceremony and reception milestones

All you have to do is focus on your partner, and enjoy this moment with family and friends!
