Kerline and her event team get the job done! My first event working with them was a holiday party at Renaissance SeaWorld this past weekend. Everything from the venue, decorations, DJ, and RSVPs - what did Olivia Pope used to say? - “...it’s handled...”. So true in our case. Joie de Vie uses current technology for everything from scheduling meetings to confirming guests and their +1s. But what really impressed me, aside from their organizational skills - was their attitude. I kept returning to the team the night of the party because I love talking to people with 1) great attitudes and 2) great senses of humor. Joie de Vie - they’ve got you. Trust & believe. Thank you, Kerline! More...

Words cannot express my gratitude for Joie De Vie Weddings and event. My wedding was something out of a magazine! It was almost the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of them. I came to them with a simple idea and they worked their magic and brought it to life. If you think you don't need a wedding planner, think again and if you think you can go with just any one THINK AGAIN! Kerline is a top-notch planner and I am incredibly lucky to have had her help. She always made us feel as though she had everything 100% under control. Trust me, you want her as a planner! Kerline is like a design genius! It's like she was reading my mind! I loved everything she came up with! She respected my input and added her special designer eye to my ideas. The day of the wedding ran fairly smoothly. Everything, every person, every moment...

We had the pleasure of choosing Joie De vie for our wedding this past August and Kerline did not disappoint at all. Being that this was our first encounter with a wedding planner, we were nervous (clueless really) while Kerline was level-headed the entire time. She had a lot of connections with vendors In the Central Florida area which came in very handy. She offered her professional opinion while not at all imposing. Joie de vie helped us search for the venue, helped us track rsvp and helped us deal with the vendors from start to finish. She did literally everything that we agreed on in the contract. Kerline and her staff were active the day of the wedding to make sure we got everything that was due to us from every vendor we contracted. She is very direct ( that might be an issue for some) but I had no issues at all with it because I am the same way and feel that it is needed for such a stressful time as planning a wedding. I would recommend her to any and everyone. My family is still raving about her. Because of her, the wedding starting on time, all of the guests were accounted for, and there were no surprises. We actually now still stay in touch even after the wedding. More...

Hiring Kerline was the BEST decision I could’ve made on my wedding day ( besides getting married of course hahaha). Her vast knowledge on EVERYTHING, her punctuality, her personality, and her ability to deal with my wild family was impeccable! If it wasn’t for Kerline, her team, and her amazing vendor recommendations our wedding day wouldn’t have been named by my family “ The Wedding of the Century” Anything and everything we needed she reassured us it would be taken care of and she delivered PLUS more! The day of our wedding she even stopped the rain! I’m telling you, SHE’S THAT GOOD! In all honesty Kerline is a blessing! Working with her definitely was an absolute pleasure and she comes highly highly recommended by my venue, my Dj, literally anyone I spoke with had nothing but fantastic things to say about her work!Joie De Vie thank you so much for everything!

We recently got married in July 2019, and lets just say we could not have done it without Kerline and the Joie De Vie team. From the first day of planning with Kerline we knew we made the right decision as our coordinator. Kerline always went above and beyond helping with vendor connections, organization and planning, as well as a smooth wedding day. It is important to work with people who love what they do and Kerline; as well as her team, will exude passion and love for your wedding!

My husband and I would like to thank you again for all your help. From the day we enquired about helping us coordinating our wedding, until the moment everything ended on our bid day. Nothing was ever too much for ask for, and questions were always answered superfast. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, or a better planner. Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your hard work in making our wedding the best day of our lives. It would not have been possible without you.
I wished I did hire you to plan the whole wedding. Even though you started coordinating months after I started planning you fitted right in and fixed everything that could have gone wrong. You are very professional and respectful to your clients. You always took time to help us understand every details.

Kindly,

My Wedding Planner Kerline was a gift from my sisters' for my wedding. Kerline was the planner for my sister's wedding, and it was fabulous. At first, I did not feel as though I needed a wedding planner. I was sure if I purchased one of those self-planning binders, I could handle it all myself. Mind you; I don't like hassles. I ordered the wedding binder, and it was not my cup of tea. Long story short, I decided to book Kerline from Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC, as my Wedding Planner. I made the right decision. Planning a wedding can be complicated, and if you don't ask your vendors the right questions, you could end up being very disappointed. Kerline dealt with my vendors, reviewed my contracts, and made the entire planning process simple. The wedding day was great, Kerline, and her team did an excellent job setting up and handled my guest exceptionally well. My advice to anyone on the fence about hiring Kerline from Joie de Vie Weddings & Events, LLC is "do it" you will not regret it, and it will save you lots of heartache in the end. More...

Kerline was great for my wedding. My wife and I hired her as a month of coordinator for our two day wedding Nigerian wedding in May of 2019. I can say without reservation that this was one of the best decision that we made. I was very skeptical at first as I did not think a wedding coordinator was necessary and I am glad to know that I was wrong. Kerline went above and beyond to ensure that we had as little stress as possible while my wife and I were planning the wedding and during the wedding. She is very detail oriented and has excellent relationships with a number of vendors. My wife found the wedding planning tools to be helpful. I can say that my only regret was that we did not use Kerline until a month before the wedding. I can say without a doubt that our wedding planning would have gone smoother. It is for this reason that i would recommend Kerline without hesitation. More...

I LITERALLY could write a novel of nothing but positive words about Kerline whom I worked with mainly but also for her wonderful team who assisted us the day of. My now husband was hesitant on hiring a wedding planner because with a wedding party of 22, and 250+ guests he simply didn't want to spend the money. but as the saying goes "happy wife, happy life" and we hired Kerline which was one of the best decisions we could have made. I have an extremely busy schedule and am particular on what I like but I never once saw Kerline break a sweat. She was literally anytime I needed to speak to her. She claims she sleeps but I can't believe it. Kerline made sure that our vision was met while also being honest with her suggestions. The day of the wedding she and her team moved effortlessly. When people ask how my wedding was, I always say perfect because if something had gone wrong, I have no idea because of the phenomenal job Kerline did. I highly recommend Kerline and wish her business nothing but continued success. More...

Being the control freak that I am, the moment we began planning our wedding, I was certain there’d be no need for a Wedding Planner. We’d always known exactly where we wanted to say our “I Do’s”, so it was easy to check that off our list. To my surprise, however, one of the venue’s mandatory requirements were that must have a Wedding Planner/Month of Coordinator. Although I was reluctant to do so, I embarked on my search to find the perfect Planner. Unfortunately, the search wasn’t going well but thankfully, upon securing our Florist/Event Designer (R&J Glamour) Juan Carlos immediately referred Kerline. I explored Joie de Vie on Instagram, subsequently ended up on their website and fell in love – just as Juan Carlos had expected! Her style and obvious attention to detail were not only captivating, but it also matched my personality perfectly! Our initial in-person meet-up with Kerline, solidified and cast away lingering doubts. She was professional and bubbly, but most of all, precise... Very precise! This was indeed my favorite quality about her because I too am quite meticulous! She'd often tease me and call me a "True Joie de Vie Bride". HAHAHA! Many times throughout the process Kerline came to the rescue with her extensive list of contacts and referrals. Although I am a DC resident, my dress fitting was in Ft. Lauderdale. Kerline took the 4-hour drive and made sure she arrived (on time) for my 10am appointment to ensure she knew how to bustle my dress – talk about COMMITTED!! In the days leading up to the main event, she met with our team, conducted the rehearsal and then provided members of the party and other vendors with an extensive printed timeline. Meanwhile, I just sat back with my arms folded and for once didn’t have to utter a word! Our wedding day was just as beautiful as we’d expected and went off with only a minor hitch (which although she had absolutely nothing to do with, she was able to facilitate in finding a solution to this "hiccup" as well!)Ladies and Gents, if you’ve been searching for the perfect planner, I urge you to end your search now. My husband and I were beyond pleased with the services offered by Kerline and are amazed at what we were able to pull off in just 4 months. There isn’t a thing we would change about our day! Thank you Kerline! We truly could not have done it without you! XOXO Sharalyn & Chad More...

Where do I begin? Kerline is very professional, punctual, organized, and a respectful planner. You can see her love and passion reflected through her work. She went above and beyond to make sure my wedding day was perfect. It was perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We started working with her 13 months before the wedding. Through the entire process, we never experienced any stress; aside from finalizing our guest list, (which had nothing to do with her). Before committing to venues etc. she had us complete our preliminary list so we could realistically select our venue. She then gave my husband and me eight months to update all of the addresses. She knew it can take some time and could be an emotional process for any couple. In talking to others getting married, we realized there were many things she assisted with that other planners don’t typically assist with. Our planning package gave us the ability to have her assist us with every part of the planning. When my husband and I sat with her to talk about the vision of our wedding day, she was such a good listener, she was able to narrow down the options quickly. Also, every vendor she referred us to exceeded our expectations, and they all said: “Kerline is an elite planner, your wedding is going to be exceptionally well done.” I’m not being biased, she was everything they described her to be. After the wedding, our family and friends called us saying “they’ve never been to a wedding like ours.” As she said: we were investing too much money to not enjoy the process and the day. We truly enjoyed the process and our Wedding Day! Hire Joie de Vie! More...

They were extremely attentive, made sure our wedding party was well taken care of and kept them and guests on time and happy. We could go on & on about how fabulous the team at JVD is and we are so proud to have had them handling our special day. We couldn't have imagined our wedding any other way.

It was a no brainer to hire a wedding planner, but to find someone you can trust to be your eyes and ears while you are enjoying the big day and can make the executive decision in a crunch is a hard decision. I had very high expectations for a wedding planner and Kerline exceeded ALL my expectations in every way. Her attention to detail, organization skills, designer eye, thoroughness and serving as a liaison between all my vendors -she made my wedding day stress free and the best day of my life! Family and guests were raving about Kerline and her team the entire night. She was always one step ahead and putting out fires before they even began. (I didn’t find this out until after the wedding of course, she kept this hidden from me like every planner should.) My mother in-law dress ripped and Kerline literally had to sew her into the dress. We had two wedding crashers at our cocktail hour who tried to steal our glassware and Kerline was a true professional and escorted them out. My Maid of Honor never brought the toasting glasses or the cake cutting knife and without hesitation Kerline had both ready to go for me. She even had different options for toasting flutes. She helped me with my dress and my bouquet; it was like she was my step-in MOH- but my Planner of Honor!
Things are not going to go perfect on your wedding day, and that is okay. But hiring a true professional will make the day go as seamless as possible that you won’t even notice the hiccups along the way. Kerline’s calm demeanor always put me at ease and that is exactly what every bride needs on their big day. I called her upset the weekend before and she knew exactly the right words to say to calm me down and make me feel better. She even looked over contracts for me and fought for me with certain details. She was truly my champion in my absence. She went above and beyond for us at our wedding and we are forever grateful for her.

Kerline Docteur and her associates at Joie De Vie Weddings were an amazing find. My husband and I selected Orlando, FL for our destination Indian fusion wedding. We were a little overwhelmed with planning a wedding from far away without being able to travel to our destination more than once.
When I was researching a day of coordinator, I did phone interviews with at least 15 wedding coordinators. When I spoke to Kerline, I knew instantly she was the person to help me with my wedding. I clicked with her instantly! She was confident, organized, enthusiastic, extremely helpful and informative. She understood that I needed someone who I could rely on to oversee and executve all of my carefully laid out plans. Her attention to detail was amazing and she ensured that everything fell into place without my having to worry about how things were playing out. That says a lot when you're dealing with an Indian fusion wedding!
With Kerline and her team on hand, I was able to enjoy my wedding once the events started! I'd highly recommend her to any bride, or anyone in need of event planning services! Kerline, thank you again to you and your staff for making our wedding so memorable and fun!

This is a no brainer. Future brides, you should use Kerline to ensure your wedding day is as smooth as possible. I didn't know her well before my wedding day, but after seeing her skills at the rehearsal, I felt beyond comfortable leaving the details in her hands. The day of, she felt more like an older sister than my coordinator. She cared about details that mattered to me and made it happen. Thank you, Kerline, for an amazing job. More...
