What my clients say…

From the moment I met Johanna, I knew that my daughter’s wedding would be perfect. The way Johanna took care of handling the details of the wedding, as well as rehearsal and all aspects before hand, was a blessing for me. She is so professional and is such a friendly outgoing person. I told her that when my granddaughter (who is 5!) announces her big day, that I will be calling once again for another wonderful day! I just can’t say enough about Johanna. ~ Debbie B.

Thank you for the fantastic event planning you did for the May 2012 Open House for GH Eye.  I started out thinking I could manage this event on my own, and ended up wondering how I could have ever have done it without you!   You did a great job with the functions I asked you to for help with — co-ordinating the “tent”, food and raffles/gifts.  But what was even more impressive were the wonderful suggestions you gave me to market the event, as well as ways to reduce my costs.  It’s obvious that you have a keen understanding of what it takes to plan successful events.   It was a great pleasure to work with someone as accomplished and delightful as you. Whether I am planning a family event or a business event, I will definitely call on Simplicity Events again! ~ Dr. Ally Stoeger

We just wanted to express our sincere gratitude for the amazing job you did organizing our wedding reception.  It was absolutely beautiful, and it was a night we will never forget.   Everything was perfect.  The food, the staff, the tables, the lighting… it was exactly how we envisioned it – except even more amazing.  Thank you so much.  You definitely deserve the credit! ~ Erik and Shannon


We wanted to thank you and let you know how grateful we are to have had such a wonderful, fun person as yourself be a part of our wedding day!  I could not have had such the amazing day that I had without you.  I owe all the fabulousness to you!!  I don’t think one thing went wrong and we thank you for making things run so smoothly!  We really hope to see you again and wish you all the best in your future of wedding coordinating!   Lindsey and Greg


We wanted to personally thank you (for being) involved in our wedding celebration.  You did a terrific job from beginning to end in making out wedding a wonderful and memorable experience for all of our guests.  From the moment our guests arrived they were greeted with your friendly and professional staff and treated to an event they will always remember. As our wedding coordinator, you went above and beyond in making sure our wedding celebration was complete.  Thank you for all of your help and for your personal touches in setting up and decorating our reception room.  Your willingness to help and involvement in our event was invaluable.  ~ Deb and Shannon
