La Belle Memories
Let me start by saying that Joyann and her team in St.Lucia was truly heaven sent! My husband and I feared that we were not going to be able to afford the wedding of our dreams and let alone have a wedding designer or planner for a destination wedding. With Joyann’s help, our wedding looked priceless to say the least; she worked magic to get it done on a budget (no exaggerations there). Joyann also took the time to get to know us personally and not just on a business level and that really stuck out to us. During the process, we were able to have our must haves and I trusted Joyann to add whatever she thought we needed in order to make our dream wedding happen! Her creativity is mind blowing as her visions come to life! Joyann and the La belle Mariage team showed up and DELIVERED!! Our wedding day went so seamlessly smooth without any hiccups. From the unique astonishing decor details, to her suggested deliciously tasty island food menu. She comes highly recommended. To you Joyann , I cannot thank you enough for the blessing you have given us newlyweds! I will continue to recommend you to all of those I know that are getting married. You did that girl!!!
I never thought of having a destination wedding until my sister mentioned it . My sister did a pageant with Joyann and she hosted a reunion in st.lucia for all the ladies. Upon my sisters return, she strongly advised that we have our wedding and honeymoon in st.lucia. I thought it was an insane recommendation, but after seeing her photos of her time there, I totally understood why! We decided to contact La belle Mariage and shared our vision of our wedding day - Joyann’s energy and excitement was so contagious that even our guests took note. My wedding day was better than I had imagined! I have travelled the world ! But there is no place like St.Lucia!
The communication with Joy was easy and constant. After our first conversation , I immediately felt that our wedding was entrusted in good hands. We had a group of 80 people and Joy was able to get accommodation for everyone at a great rate. I had guests who also wanted to do island Tours and she was able to advise them all . Joy is truly a one stop shop! Her presence in st.lucia made us feel like we had more than a planner. She really felt like family.
Joyann was always available to talk on the phone . She is very warm and has a great way of making you comfortable. She was able to coordinate everything including activities that had nothing to do with the wedding. The day of our wedding was absolutely amazing! We would have never had that kind of experience if we got married at a hotel ! If you are going all the way to the Caribbean, do yourself a huge favor and avoid getting married at a hotel. We did our ceremony and reception at the ruins ! Absolutely gorgeous! This place is something to see.
La belle Mariage was highly recommended by a friend and I must admit Joyann is a true Joy to work with . The fact that she is actually from St.Lucia made everything magical . Very knowledgeable about anything about St. Lucia! She has an entire dedicated team on the island that made the whole experience pleasant ! She was able to execute a true island experience for our wedding! Our guests are still mesmerized by their trip to this breathtaking island! Ohhhhh how I love my St. Lucian Pandora charm ! “No pressure No problem “Hahahaha thank you Joy!
Where do we start , FANTASTIC !!! we did the Escape package ,Our reception was on the catamaran, we got to watch the sun set too. We had the steel pan music after our ceremony. It did rain, but the island folks referred to it as liquid sunshine and that’s the absolute truth ! Warm rain !Joyann was there every step of the way ! From the first day till the end. She found accommodation that was within our guests budget on the Island. All our guests stayed to the north of the island because it made more sense to assist with coordinating transportation on day of wedding . She was able to give us or dream wedding without going over budget! She gave us great ideas ! It was like a movie. We would never be able to have such an experience if you were not part of it Joy ! Thank you so much for taking care of our guests and giving us the best day of our lives! You were the best investment besides my wedding dress. Thank you thank you.
I’m so glad we didn’t go with our initial plan to book with a resort. Because working with La belle marriage was the best decision we could have made to make our dream wedding a reality! I will always remember my magical wedding day and Joyann and her team were a huge part of creating that perfect memory! Joyann was the glue that held our wedding day together. Such great attention to detail and a great personality. We hired Joyann as our wedding planner and ended up with a great friend and some new island dance moves ! happy dance!
