  • Joann was amazing, she planned, organized and choreographed my daughters wedding beyond my wildest dreams! Her connections with caters, rentals, and vendors was fantastic! Joann made a very stressful time wonderful. The wedding was not only exceptional for my daughter and me, but for all our guests. So many of our guests complemented Joann personally, and made a point of telling me how impressed they were with her skills! She is not only a brilliant organizer, and planner, but warm, lovable and has become a dear friend! You will not be disappointment!

  • JoAnn and WDAMO are the BEST!! We live in NC and our wedding was in NY. We knew what venue we wanted but had no idea how to book vendors since we couldn't meet with any in person. JoAnn hooked us up and got us amazing deals with all of the best vendors. She made herself available 24/7 and allowed us to reach her any way WE wanted - call, text, email, whatever. You can definitely tell how long she's been in the industry - she is extremely knowledgeable on all things wedding related. Any question we had, she answered. She took out a lot of the stress we would have felt from having a destination wedding. On the day of our wedding, we forgot to give JoAnn our final payment for the ceremony musicians, but didn't realize it until after the ceremony when we were doing our receiving line. JoAnn took care of our balance herself and we squared up with her the next day. Lastly - and this is the most important - my Grandmother did not feel well enough to come to the wedding, but only lives 5... Read more

  • It is so hard to put everything I want to say about JoAnn and "WDaMO" in one review but I will do my best. JoAnn was there for me in a very exciting, but also challenging and stressful part of my life. The wedding was not the only thing on my mind - I had 2 family members pass away during our engagement and experienced a lot of anxiety with work. As a dual-military couple, my fiance` and I struggled against several deployment initiatives that got very close to postponing our wedding. Through all of this, JoAnn was not only a source of constant comfort and assurance on all wedding matters - she also became a very dear friend who consoled me in the loss of my family members and reassured me that everything would work out fine. Knowing the situation Charlie and I were in because of our military service, JoAnn paid special attention to choose flexible vendors who would honor our situation if a deployment caused our date to change. JoAnn was so easy to contact and so great about getting bac... Read more

  • Joanne was so very over the top calm, clearheaded, and very knowledgeable about all the areas of a wedding that we did not think of. She answered my messages, phone calls and crisis at all hours and always stayed very calm and assured me everything would be perfect! She was absolutely right! Everything was perfect including the flowers that she picked out!!! We could not have asked for a better planner! Dave and Maegan Butler!

  • I hired JoAnn and her team in March of 2015 with the plan to have a wedding in 7 months. I was super nervous that it wouldnt be enough time to accomplish everything in time. All of my fears were quickly swept aside the minute JoAnn took over. She had me a DJ, photographer, videographer, venue and florist, within a few weeks! And not only was she able to book these vendors quickly and efficiently, but she booked me the best of the best within my budget. She really got to know me and the groom on a personal level and was able to know exactly what we wanted our day to look and feel like. She made sure that everything was getting done on time and when it came to the day of, my day was carefree and stressless! She handled everything with ease and confidence! Having JoAnn be our wedding planner was the best decision I have ever made!

  • Found Joanne through Wedding wire and the Knot. She was highly recommended on these sites which prompted us to call. After interviewing 7 planners, we picked Joanne. She took our calls late at nite and always returned calls. She is very accommodating. We are out of state clients which is why we chose a planner and we made the right choice. You can't go wrong with this company as she truly made our travel themed wedding come to life.

  • JoAnn and her team were phenomenal! We had a tricky family situation (both my and my now husband's parents are divorced) and JoAnn did an amazing job helping us navigate all of the intricacies of the wedding planning process. She thought of every detail and did an outstanding job checking in to see if I had any questions and making herself available when I did have questions throughout the whole process. I interviewed other wedding planners and she began calling vendors before we hired her. I was so impressed with her quality of work. I am so grateful for her time and all that she did to help make our wedding the most wonderful day! Thank you, JoAnn!!!!

  • Planning a wedding is overwhelming. I quickly realized that there was no way I'd be able to handle my day of coordination myself. I needed professional help to pull of an event that involved 3 different locations (hotel, church & reception venues) and transportation! I was looking for someone to give me peace of mind that all the little details would be taken care of. That's where JoAnn and her team came in. From our initial conversations, I felt at ease that JoAnn and her team. She was very flexible - even willing to have planning conversations at 10pm since my schedule was so hectic. She visited my florist and did a walk through of our reception site a few weeks before our wedding and helped me plan a day of schedule to keep everyone on time. On the day of our wedding, while I was getting hair and makeup done, she made sure to keep me updated via text and pictures so I knew that everything at my reception venue would be perfect when guests arrived. When guests were still enteri... Read more

  • JoAnn was an absolute pleasure to work with! We hired her about 3 months into our wedding planning, once we had already secured a location and date and were in the madness of finding the rest of our vendors. We went for the full planning package, which was wonderful because she really did help from start to finish and even beyond the day of the wedding. As a Type A personality bride, JoAnn served as a project manager for the wedding and was willing to work on any and everything - allowing me to focus on the fun elements of the planning. We were an out of state couple planning a multicultural wedding, having JoAnn's expertise and professional network at our disposal was a big help and made it easy to finalize decisions. Her team is equally dedicated, experienced, and more than willing to go above and beyond to make their client happy. Through the 9 months of working with JoAnn and her team, I never felt like my wedding wasn't a priority or that she had a personal interest in what's best... Read more

  • JoAnn was an incredible & invaluable person to have on our team of vendors for our May 31, 2014 wedding. Up front, please know that I did not directly hire her wedding planning services through "What Dreams Are Made Of...". I had booked a wedding chapel (that is sadly no longer open for business) that was using JoAnn as their chapel coordinator. The Chapel package & contract included JoAnn's services for coordination with vendors and some wedding planning. While the contract indicated that she would provide a certain amount of services, she went above & beyond what was set out in the contract. Dan & I were ahead of the game, as we had already decided on the venue. JoAnn gave us suggestions for caterers, rentals, rehearsal dinner, DJ, and flowers. We had plenty of discussions & she was available to answer my questions by telephone, E-mail & in person. I loved our meetings over coffee/tea. She gave suggestions, listened to me gripe about various issues/friends/relatives (then she h... Read more

  • I found JoAnn to be lovely and professional on the phone. She followed up after our first call to go over my needs for the day. To make this a short post, she did not perform on any of the asks for the day of coordination. She stood there and was as useless as possible. She tried to get me to add on additional staff when it was very clear they were not needed. In the end when I sent and email after the fact - she blamed the coordinator at my venue. She was full of excuses and was not worth even half of what we paid her. I was extremely disappointed in her "work". I am shocked at her reviews now looking back at them. I would not recommend using her services.

    Hi Jamie. Thank you for reviewing our services. I wish you had used the longer version, the one that I was able to address each of your complaints. Unlike the venue staff, we don't draw attention to our completed tasks, we just do them and move on. Maybe next time, we should jump up and down, waving our hands, yelling "yay me... Look what we just did!!". I'm sorry I ACCIDENTALLY stepped on a tiny little corner of your dress, and although no damage was done, you claimed it ruined your day. BTW... The purse you lost was tracked and returned because we chased after it, not the venue manager. We reached out to the limo company, had them check the car you left it in, and had them bring it back. When it was delivered, the manager snatched it out of our hands and took the credit for its return. Again, I'm sorry I ruined your wedding day and gave you nightmares because I accidentally stepped on your dress while helping you onto the bus!! And is it possible that all my other brides were so wrong about me??

  • JoAnn helped us plan a beautiful outdoor wedding - the first of its kind at our selected venue. Since we live in Europe we required a lot of support during the whole planning process of almost two years. On the two occasions we were in the US before the wedding, she made time to meet us several times (also on short notice) and travelled long distances to accommodate each and every one of our wishes. JoAnn was always there for us from the selection of the venue, to finding hair & make-up artists/DJs/photographers/rentals/bakers/..., up to the big day where she and her team made sure everything was set up on time and ran smoothly. We can wholeheartedly recommend What Dreams Are Make Of to every bride- and groom-to-be even (or especially) if you're not after a cookie-cutter wedding but envision something more unique and thus planning-intensive. JoAnn will have your back from beginning to end.

  • Leading up to our wedding, JoAnn appeared capable, introduced herself to vendors and made promises of things running smoothly. The day of our wedding, we had a quick run through of the ceremony. My fiancé & I were running around wrangling relatives and friends (in heels!) while JoAnn stood around & complained about my finance's family being slow. She was of no assistance getting the families together for pre-ceremony photos. I had to do this & almost lost my voice yelling for our families to take their places. Then, JoAnn proceeded to complain to us about our officiant--that she was too slow. Then, she complained that guests weren't sitting in the correct places for the reception. Then, she complained to my mother about the DJ's sound guy suspiciously standing close to the gifts (he was a very nice person with no ill will). Yet, she did nothing to solve ANY of these problems. She just made us aware of all the problems. Then, throughout the evening as I went to change from heels to fla... Read more

    Response to Elise Dee I would just like to say that I felt attacked by this review, and feel the need to defend myself. I find this review to have many untruths and to be borderline slanderous. First, the ceremony. You were supposed to email me your ceremony, but didn't. If you had, your rehearsal still would've been ridiculously long, because the officiant took way too much time to do what should've been a simple run-through, not a total "dress rehearsal". Your family was very hot, tired, and wanted to stay out of the heat. I tried to move them along, without being rude.  Then the cake. You simply didn't order enough. Chef was worried about this. As far as me being MIA during cake cutting, I stood next to you, and handed you the cake server. Then, after you cut it, I followed the cake and the chef into the kitchen, so we could figure out how to get 120 slices out of a cake that would've only fed 80!! I was not aware that I was supposed to monitor your 2 slices. In 11 years, I've never been asked to babysit cake. As far as "standing around, doing nothing...", with the list of chores we were assigned, there was no time for that. We had to cover the bulletin boards with fabric, cover the tent poles with fabric, place tags on over 100 bottles of soda, AND place them in alphabetic, FLAVOR COORDINATED order on your escort table, set up your gift table, guest book with Anne Frank stickers, chalk board signs... The list goes on. We were never informed that you needed help with wrangling your family for photos, nor did we hear you yelling! I spoke to you many times during the day, and each time, your voice was perfect. We completed every task, & ensured your timeline was followed. We were polite to your guests and vendors, and took pride in completing our service in the utmost professional manner. Prior to the wedding day, I saved you a great deal of money by negotiating with the venue, although we were only hired for Week Of coordination.
