Jojo is such an amazing person to work with. Wanted to have a wedding of about 150 people in the Chicago Metropolitan area with a firm budget (just wanna say that keeping to the budget was my main goal). This can be typically difficult given the cost of venues and things in the Chicago area. Jojo helped find a glamorous ball-style venue (my preference) that also had an outside lake as a great view for the ceremony. The venue also catered to most of the other needs at a reasonable price. Furthermore, we met regularly with Jojo to go over what our expectations of each vendor would be, and with a great understanding of what we wanted, she was resourceful in getting the appropriate vendors and negotiating a good price with them. She made sure that within the short period of planning (we contacted her about 4 months before the wedding), every step of the plan towards the wedding day was carried out in a timely manner with nothing left unattended to... I mean nothing (including what was needed for the traditional wedding given we are Nigerians). On the day of the wedding, she drew up a great timeline and went above and beyond to ensure all went according to plan timely and we were not stressed out. It was such a good and memorable event that we received numerous compliments on it. With her being very affordable for the service she gives and she being intentionally involved in everything, we definitely kept to budget and had better than the wedding we had hoped for. She was on top of her game from A to Z. She isn't only an event planner to us but is also a friend. I thank God for you Jojo and for all you did. These few words cannot fully explain how excellent you are in what you do.

Jojo worked with our family and executed our wedding to perfection!
Jo coordinated my sister's wedding, and it was beyond awesome! She is very detailed, professionally and did all she could to ensure my sister was hyped up throughout the event. She handled the vendors very professionally, and she handled every situation very calmly. She was always a phone call away since I was also on the bridal train. Overall, it was great having Jo as the event coordinator!

Jojo was a pleasure to work with in planning my wedding. She was very friendly and professional, and she responded to urgent questions in a timely manner. She was great at coordinating with other family members involved in the wedding planning. We worked together in achieving the perfect timeline that work with me and the vendors. She also made sure we kept to schedule and we were on time for our first wedding ceremony.

We had a multicultural wedding...Jocelyn was always positive and upbeat
One of the most important decisions that we made when planning our wedding was hiring Jocelyn. She was thoughtful, detailed, and flexible throughout the entire process. From working with us when we had to postpone due to COVID to helping us figure out new plans when some of our original logistics fell through. Through it all, Jocelyn was always positive and upbeat and ready with a solution. We had a multicultural wedding, and her expertise in how to handful multiple cultures so that everyone feels respected and represented cannot be understated. We had a beautiful day because of JoKay Events!

Working with an organized and well informed event planner is definitely a plus to having a successful event. Jokay events made the job of having to reach out to vendors easy. She also provided a very comprehensive spreadsheet containing a checklist of all the items needed to make the wedding a success. The prompt response to updates from vendors was very laudable. Working within the budget of clients and staying true to it was a major strength of Jokay events. My wife and I enjoyed a stress free planning, little wonder we had a great event because Jokay took care of business to the detail and there was nothing to worry about. We are sure recommending her to other potential clients!
