I'm Mariah Joy

I'm a daughter, a Christian and

Owner of Joy Coordinating


HI  friend

So glad you are here!

Let me introduce myself! I'm Mariah but some people call me Joy because the of the business name, and I will go by either!  I have a deep passion for all things wedding planning, from organizing and designing, to executing and directing, I love it all!! In my time away from planning you will find me spending time with my family and friends, getting sucked into a good book, spending time outside, baking fresh goods, having fun with crafts and volunteering at my church! 

I started planning and coordinating weddings in 2021 just for fun, and then turned it into a business in 2022. Since I was a little girl I have loved weddings, to the point where I would coordinate my barbie dolls' weddings. 'The Wedding Planner' hit the screens and quickly became my favorite movie. I was introduced to the wedding industry when I started working as a florist. I noticed a need in Western North Carolina for someone who had a passion for helping brides have an amazing wedding day.


My favorite thing about being a wedding planner is the moment the bride is walking down the aisle. In that  moment I get to be there standing in the back watching the joy on her face, after all the planning, organizing and preparation she is finally getting married to the love of her life. Walking through this process with them and being right by their side brings a smile to my face and joy in my heart.


I look forward to having this experience with you on your special day. I am located in Brevard North Carolina and I am serving brides locally and brides in the surrounding area!

WHY A wedding planner

Hiring a wedding planner is essential for couples seeking a seamless and stress-free journey to their special day. Wedding planners bring a wealth of expertise and experience, offering valuable guidance on budget management, vendor selection, and creative design. Their established relationships with reputable vendors often lead to cost savings and ensure reliable services. Beyond logistical support, wedding planners serve as problem-solvers, handling any unexpected issues on the day itself. With a keen eye for detail and a commitment to personalization, they transform visions into reality, allowing couples to enjoy the romance of their engagement while entrusting the intricate planning process to capable hands. A wedding planner not only streamlines the planning process but also ensures that the wedding day unfolds effortlessly, leaving couples with cherished memories of a perfectly orchestrated celebration.

Want some Merch?

Since Joy Coordinating was born I knew that I wanted to launch merch, it was just a matter of when!  I wanted past clients, present clients and  even those who have supported us along the way to get something tangible in their hands! With the help of The  Engraveyard Company, and Christian Dawn Photography, our merch was created. I couldn't be more happy with the design of these and I cannot wait for you to get them in your hands!
