Love Notes

Vermont Garden Wedding

Rated 5 out of 5
September 11, 2023

NJoy Weddings & Events produced our fabulous romantic garden themed wedding.

We valued Nancy’s (principal designer and planner) expertise and advice throughout the planning process. Nancy’s classic touches, like sheer flowing draperies, table linen advice, dance floor size and table shape/style recommendations all contributed to the feel we were looking for. Many of Nancy’s suggestions helped eliminate the guess work that comes along with many choices in the wedding industry.

We were most impressed with the last few weeks of planning, as N Joy Weddings & Events pulled the years work of pre-planning all together in an perfectly executed timeline so that the wedding would flow smoothly based on our customizations.

We appreciate the VERY hard work of wedding weekend where N Joy Weddings and Events tackled last minute issues, and made sure all the elements involved were displayed and produced in what what many guests commented, “one of the best weddings they have ever been to.”

We are forever thankful to the staff at NJoy Weddings & Events for producing such a beautiful wedding.

Elegant and Beautiful Stowe Wedding

Nancy created a beautiful and memorable wedding for my daughter. She offered suggestions for appropriate vendors and helped us work through a myriad of details for each. Flowers, cake, tents, table and chairs, resort location, music, goody bags, rehearsal dinner and welcomer party, day-of schedule, Scottish Bag Piper… everything and every detail was considered, worked out and executed to our satisfaction (except the weather, she is not in charge of rain!). We could not have been happier nor more satisfied… and Stowe is actually beautiful in the rain!

Nancy was a complete pleasure to work planning our wedding! When working with Nancy, she was able to discuss all of the nitty gritty details of our wedding weekend vision that she, and her team, helped us bring to life! We didn’t have to worry about a thing the entire weekend because we knew that Nancy was on it. Nancy was extremely helpful in setting up the wedding and coordinating with all of our vendors and venue. With so much experience under her belt, she was able to provide us with expertise guidance for planning, in addition to get us to think through things we would’ve never imagined for planning a wedding. Nancy was able to lay out options and new ideas to help enhance the wedding weekend activities that we had planned. Nancy was a great planner for our wedding!


The best day of our lives & a true FAIRYTALE all thanks Nancy and her team! They are SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

All I can say is I wish we could give Nancy & NJOY events more than 5 stars for this review…!!!! Hiring Nancy for our Vermont wedding was hands down the best decision we made in the entire process. From her incredibly kind and caring spirit, to her SUPREME organization of every single detail, to knowing each and every vendor personally up and down the East Coast and everything in between – Nancy and her entire team are simply the best in the business. With our outdoor wedding all planned, we had to last minute move everything inside due to inclement weather and given all the changes, our wedding **would not have gone off as smoothly as it did without her right there with beside us every step of the way. We hired Nancy for the final 3-5 months of wedding planning, and my gosh do I wish we had hired her the second we got engaged!! From day one of meeting her she grasped our “Fall in the Mountains” Vermont vision in seconds and from then on out took care of every outstanding item. to make sure we felt stress free and were able to sit back and soak in all the magic of our wedding day. I truly looked forward to every conversation with Nancy and now look back in “awe” of how much she took care of and executed on leading up and day of. We cannot thank Nancy enough for everything she did to help us in the entire wedding planning process and making our wedding the greatest day of our lives!!!

We knew Nancy would be a great fit from the day we met. She came to our first Zoom meeting with a binder that already had a photo of us on it, and we were immediately impressed! Nancy has several decades of experience & expertise. As I like to call her my fairy-god-planner, Nancy truly cares about her clients and her life’s passion is creating unforgettable, magical experiences. She is prompt, communicative, organized, and always eager to help with a can-do attitude. She is well-known & respected in both her industry & community, which made acquiring and working with vendors a seamless process.

She supported our vision with helpful suggestions. We had the best day ever and definitely have Nancy to thank for that!

On a more personal note, we developed a strong connection with Nancy, and even though our special day has come & gone, I know we’ll keep in touch! Can’t recommend Nancy enough!


Dreams Came True

Nancy Jeffries-Dwyer and her team listened to my daughter and her fiancé in order to produce an event that matched and exceeded their hopes and dreams. They transformed a ski lodge into a magical, woodland wonderland and provided an extended weekend of detailed merriment. Since this was a destination wedding planned remotely it was critical to have people involved who knew the area. Nancy opened doors that we would never had known existed.

Forever thankful we had Nancy with us this past year. She amazed.

The Perfect Party

My wife and I wanted our wedding to be the best party we’d ever thrown, a true celebration of our love, and Nancy executed this vision flawlessly. We truly could not have been happier.

We were doing all of our wedding planning cross country, during the busiest wedding season in the history of wedding seasons, and we would have failed without Nancy’s boots on the ground. She made sure to find us amazing vendors and worked through every detail with us, ensuring that we had every bit of confidence in the things we couldn’t see first hand. Her choices and suggestions were spot on!!

On the day of the wedding, she did an outstanding job of having everything in place for us to focus on each other and not have to worry about a thing. I cannot say enough how comforting it was to know that I had Nancy on our side.


A sumptuous Vermont wedding day

Having had the opportunity to work with Nancy over the past 25 years as the producer of theatrical musicals that I directed, I expected nothing but excellence in her role of event planner for my daughter’s wedding in Stowe, VT. A producer needs to manage every aspect of a show, from its inception to its opening night. Planning a wedding requires the same tenacious attention to detail that will create an experience that will live forever in the minds, hearts and memories of all who participate on that magnificent day. The key difference between producing for theater and the wedding is the following: You have only ONE shot to get it perfect for the wedding. Nancy understands that and is committed to every client to make that one shot perfect. There is no detail too small to escape her consideration and action. Her ability to manage people, places, vendors and the unexpected, puts her in a category of Super Planner! Why, because she really cares about what’s important to the bride, groom and all family members who are involved in the process. She listens attentively to the “actors” to understand the wants, desires, and concerns they have for the big day; then as a great director she guides them to a place that allows them to relax and enjoy the experience. There are so many things that can go wrong, BUT Nancy with all her experience in theater and Event planning, has the ability to anticipate and solve issues before they become problems. I congratulate her on a FIVE STAR performance and recommend her services to all. Joseph Mara, father of the bride.

Nancy is one of the best, if not the best, at she does!

In the initial conceptualization of what our wedding would look like, she took our half-formed ideas, improved upon them with excellent suggestions, and crafted a beautiful vision of the wedding far beyond what we initially had hoped for. From there, Nancy took great care to arrange all the different vendors and running quarterback – a no small logistical feat, with the utmost attention to detail and executing flawlessly all the way through. On the day of our wedding, Nancy took great care of us, letting us enjoy the day for ourselves, while executing on a military precision. One of the greatest and most heartfelt moment for us is when Nancy lent her own precious wedding necklace for the bride (fulfilling the “something borrowed”), which was so touching for us.

It is apparent to everyone that Nancy truly loves what she does and she elevates the game for everyone around her.

We are so honored and grateful that Nancy took us on as her clients despite her packed schedule, so we can be the happy recipients of her craft.
