Joy was absolutely AMAZING. When I say I don't know how we would have done it without her, it is not an exaggeration! She was so helpful in the preparation and organization of everything, and was a huge help in the set up of our decorations, coordinating the vendors and drop offs, etc. She made suggestions where we were unsure of what to decide on for certain things. At the end of the night she helped in the clean up and collected the cards, took care of giving the vendors their payments / tips, etc. All of this was what we had expected. She went above our expectations in how attentive to us she was throughout the day and night. She checked in on us and brought us waters to ensure we were staying hydrated during the day (it was a hot summer day). We had a cigar table and the cigars were going fast, so she brought my fiance a cigar and told him she'd keep it aside for him for when he wanted one. There were so many more instances like this where Joy went above and beyond what we were expecting and truly catered to us to make sure we were always good and happy. Joy - can't thank you enough for everything!! My entire family and wedding party raved about you as well!
Wow, where do I start.... First, if you are on the fence regarding a wedding coordinator do NOT hesitate - book Joy!! You may think you do not need one as your already really organized (like I thought), family and friends will help, or its too expensive...whatever the reason is I strongly urge you to reconsider. You will never be organized enough for a wedding - they are alottttt of work and things DO and WILL go wrong even if very minor, family and friends say they will help but when alcohol gets involved people get chatty and distracted and when you look at the cost of a wedding a coordinator is a drop in the bucket.... Having a coordinator, especially Joy , for my wedding day was suchhhhh a great decision. Joy made everything run so smoothly and was on the ball with all the little hiccups...one of my friends straps broke, she was there; we had no box/bag for the dollar dance money, Joy was on it; we were short party favors, Joy came up with her suggested solution. I highly recommend Joy at Fancy Peacocks, I promise you will not regret it! :)
My venue required a day of coordinator, so I went looking on the Knot for someone special and found Joy and I am SO glad I did. She is INCREDIBLE! Seriously! She was so much more than just a day of coordinator. She connected with me early on and then made sure to keep in touch over the planning process. As we got closer to the wedding, she dived in and made everything so easy and was super helpful. Planning a wedding in PA when I am located in Florida was overwhelming but I had so much faith in Joy that it made me feel so at ease. She knows what she is doing, is well prepared and is great at what she does. Even with a change of ceremony locations due to rain, Joy was on top of everything from set up to minor details...literally everything was perfectly handled and nothing went wrong or was missed. Not only is she great at her job but she is also such a kind soul with an awesome personality. Thank you so much Joy, you made our day perfect and I will be forever grateful!
Where do I begin. As I sit here and review Fancy Peacock Events, I realized I was the one going though reviews on The Knot only 11 months ago. I stumbled upon Fancy Peacock Events and the rest is history. Joy is an amazing person inside & out. She was always an email or phone call away. She took my vision and ran with it. You can count on her to go above & beyond. On the morning of our wedding Joy made special arrangements to pick up all the pickles for our pickle bar on top of her 12+ hour day of coordinating our wedding! I feel as if I made a friend over the past months & would choose Fancy Peacock Events over & over again!
Do not make the mistake of not having Joy as your event coordinator!!! I truly don’t know where to start with how happy I am with Joy! Who she is as a person carries into who she is as a wedding planner. Joy is kind, gentle, patient, creative, and understanding all while making sure your event is coming to life in a timely manner and how you want it. I remember the day that I found Joy, I was having a mild “meltdown” about all that goes into planning a wedding, especially because my venue was not all inclusive and all the pieces had to be put together. She got back to me instantly and with a calming presence. From then on, she broke down all tasks into a step by step process and would help me anything I may need. She contacted vendors & scheduled meetings, found decor ideas, and created a timeline for the day! She was there with me through texts, phone calls, and coffee meetings. With her help, the nine months of planning flew by with a breeze. Then it was the day of my wedding, a day I would do a million times over (thanks to Joy). After being prepared from rehearsal the day before with what to expect and what to have for the day, I was stress free. So many people said to me “wow, you’re not like most brides” and it’s because I had Joy in my corner. I chose to get ready at an Air BNB with my wedding party while the guys got ready at the venue. Joy checked in back and forth on both parties while also setting up for the day. She made the day go smoothly without hiccups: I remember when taking pictures someone told me my dress ripped, and before I could react or even see it, Joy was there with a safety pin! No one, including myself, noticed the tear from then on. From all the talking, my mouth got dry and she emerged with water and chapstick. We had my husband’s favorite cookies as dessert and he got so caught up in socializing she made sure he got some before they disappeared. She made sure that me, my husband, and our families had a perfect day we would never forget. We had a beautiful ceremony and a flawless reception. Not only will I be a forever client (already booked one of her events she’s hosting but plan to use her for baby showers, birthdays, etc.), but I’ve also made a friend for life!
Joy from Fancy Peacock Events was beyond AMAZING!! She really took the time to get to know us and our idea of our perfect wedding and made it a reality!! She was with us from our very first tasting through some unexpected and last minute difficulties with a vendor. Every step of the way she had a plan and a backup plan and a backup to the backup plan. She made our day feel “like us” and did so much behind the scenes to take the pressure off us and make it wonderful. She worked with the vendors the weeks before to finalize the details and she designed and created beautiful designs and layouts on the tables and around the venue to make it feel homey. She even somehow managed to wrangle our giant families and make the day run on time with no stress on us! Fancy Peacock Events and Joy were phenomenal! We can’t recommend them enough!! It was the best decision we made for our wedding!!! I hope you all choose to work with Fancy Peacock Events because Joy has truly gone above and beyond for us and our wedding and I know she will do the same for you!! Her kindness, organization, attention to detail and amazing perspective was an incredible help with planning our day!!!

Joy was our wedding planner for our wedding in June of 2014. Her services included meeting with us ahead of time to help nail down details about the day, helping us make decisions about how we wanted the day to go, and being there as a support for us and organizer for the day. I cannot express how much peace and support I felt having Joy there to help if things went wrong or if we simply wanted something to happen and didn't know how. Her personality is PERFECT for this position: she is so friendly and responsible, but she is so good about getting things done the way her clients want it done. Her respect for details can be seen through her willingness to help in any way and how she works with all of the other hired help of the day. I would not have wanted to trust my wedding day in any other hands because Joy is so good at what she does. We wanted a stress free day, and she truly did everything possible to make that happen- even down to bringing the bridal party snacks during photos. I loved working alongside Joy and I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a stress free event! Thanks again Joy! -Emma, Parkesburg, PA
"I am still blown away by how organized, detailed, and professional you were while being sensitive to the needs of the bride and groom." -Robert P Buzzard, Jr. of Robert Buzzard Photography
"Joy Persinger was my wedding coordinator in November 2014. My fiance (now husband) and I are both very organized and were looking for someone who would keep our wedding running smoothly. Joy was professional and friendly, learning the names of all of the wedding party and families. After planning the wedding, the last thing that I wanted to worry about was making sure everything happened smoothly on the day of the event. Joy took care of every little detail. It was all in her hands and she pulled it off flawlessly. I thank her for a stress-free day.
In addition to keeping everything organized, Joy worked very well with my other vendors, including my photographer, videographer, and pastor. I have no doubt that her ability to work as part of a team helped to make this day go smoothly. She kept everyone on the schedule we planned and was very efficient and orderly. Joy helped my wedding to be a success. I highly recommend her!" -Alison Ross
