About Fancy Peacock Events

Joy RH Persinger, Owner & Lead Coordinator 

Coordinating and planning have been a passion and joy of mine for close to 10 years. I began helping my Mom coordinate weddings at the church I grew up in. I remember the days when people almost always got married in a church and then had their reception in the fellowship hall, had an aisle runner and lit candles. I loved helping her set things up, helping get everyone in place for the wedding, and keeping things running on time. From there, I began coordinating weddings for friends and acquaintances. Now, with outdoor weddings,  unique venues and personal touches, I love helping with the process even more!  After spending two seasons coordinating at a local venue, I knew it was something I wanted to do more of  on my own and began thinking about starting my company. Fancy Peacock Events was born in 2013, and is now a reality. Thanks to the support and help of my husband Brandon, as well other good friends, I am able to do what I love. Helping you, make your event exactly what you want it to be! 

Sarah Nyguist, Associate Coordinator 

Sarah Nyguist joined the FPE team this year. Her first exposure to working with weddings was as a live musician, where she quickly became familiar with the ins and outs of wedding ceremonies. After Sarah and her sister got married three weeks apart, she realized just how much she loved all the details and organization that goes into making weddings come to life, but also how hard it can be. She wanted to use her experience and natural love for organization to create stress free, enjoyable weddings for other brides. Sarah started volunteering to coordinate friends weddings and loved every minute of it, so she was thrilled to join the Fancy Peacock team.

When she's not working on making your wedding stress free and beautiful, you can find Sarah teaching piano and performing locally, singing and dancing her way around the house, and spending time with her husband and two year old son.

Julie Hoffer, Assistant 

Julie enjoys the detail-oriented nature of set-up and assisting with Fancy Peacock events. Her end goal is making sure that the day goes as smoothly as possible for the bride and groom and ensuring that the event space looks picture perfect. She started out in the events industry helping a floral designer and still takes every chance she can get to work with flowers. She works full time as a data analst at a community health center and enjoys spending her off hours traveling with her husband, spending time with her nephews, growing flowers, and baking.
