Rave Reviews

Planning a wedding can be stressful especially when it’s a destination wedding. Not the case here! Jennifer was in constant communication with me and had everything planned perfectly. We literally only needed to show up and she took care of the rest. She was able to customize our package to accommodate our needs. We could tell she’s well known in the industry too as everyone in Fredericksburg seemed to know her! I’d highly recommend Joyful Elopements and Jennifer. Let her take the stress away of planning your big day! -Cassi and Mike

Thank you so much for all of your help and making our wedding the fun, simple day we were hoping for!  Everything went exactly as we wanted it to, and we know that wouldn't have been possible without all of your hard work. Thanks again for doing such an amazing job!

I really can not thank you enough for the amazing day you created for Joe and I. It was truly a special day. Being a duel Military couple with demanding jobs I knew when we got engaged that planning a wedding would be challenging and wasn't something either of us was looking forward too. You took all the hard work and headache out of wedding planning, plus you didn't just give us a day you gave us a getaway. The B&Bs were fantastic, the venue was beautiful and the wine tour was a blast. Everything from the flowers to the cake was just perfect! Joe and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into making our time in Fredericksburg memorable. You and your assistant were so sweet, and you were so patient and quick with answering all my emails. Also Megan's photos came out amazing! She was a great suggestion and returned the photos to us quicker than I expected. I could go on and on about how grateful and happy I am that I found you to help us with our wedding. You are fantastic at what you do and you made our dream wedding more magical than I ever could have imagined! Again thank you so much we are forever grateful!-Andrea and Joe
