Consider the value, savings, and reassurance as your full-service wedding planner. When you choose Apropos Creations, you are assured of getting the very best for less than you would expect. Being your wedding planner, we will be your resource. You need a “go-to” person for etiquette, wedding-related questions and to keep the planning timeline moving forward. You will also need a liaison to help keep emotions and relationships from straining during planning. Without us by your side, you will need to research, answer, and solve problems yourself. Lastly, we offer you support every step of the way to help you avoid costly planning mistakes, save you time and money, and to understand every detail of the wedding plans.

We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding such a special and memorable event. You truly helped to make our dreams of a desert/ Mexican/ Indian (Southeast Asian) extravaganza come true! Thank you very much for being there each step of the way- your support meant so much to us- beyond the wedding planning duties. 🙂 Wishing you many years of love, happiness and joy as you continue to make couples’ dreams a reality! With <3

I interacted with several planners before and just didn’t get the right feel. We met JoAnn at the wedding of my husband’s friend and were very impressed with her. I’m glad we had her during the last two months of our wedding planning. She was detail-oriented and very prompt with her responses. Most importantly, she listened and understood what we wanted for our wedding day, including cultural and religious details. (Thank you for getting me my orchid centerpieces and coordinating with Andrea Torzala for the wedding music!)
 
We want her to know – we thoroughly enjoyed our wedding, every detail – and that our guests did, too.

A wedding is something so personal, so special that choosing a wedding planner can be one of the most difficult parts. This is someone you will be working closely with! I am so glad that I trusted Jo Ann with this; don’t be fooled by others in the Valley with fancy photos, it’s all about the person and how they handle you and your wedding and Jo Ann came through when she was needed and made me feel like I could trust and bring anything to her and she would take care of it. At the end of the day when looking for a planner or day of coordinator, someone you trust that can handle things for you is what you need the most.
