Editorial review from Citysearch 4/9/2013

Excellent wedding planner, organized, pleasure to work with, and culturally aware and sensitive. \r \r When I think about our wedding and reception, I cannot help but smile :) Jo Ann and the Schwartz and Woodward team made our wedding a truly memorable event. I really feel as if my husband and I had a fairytale wedding! People still continue to talk about how beautiful everything was and how much fun they had. \r \r The Schwartz & Woodward team did an outstanding job coordinating, planning and working with us. I am very appreciative of how culturally sensitive and aware they are! As a South-Asian American woman, I knew there were certain traditions and customs that had to be incorporated into our ceremony, and their team worked so diligently to make that happen. I would not hesitate to recommend Jo Ann and her team to future South-Asian American brides! I believe that our wedding was the perfect fusion of both traditional and modern styles. Jo Ann had such great ideas that not only helped personalize our wedding but also helped make it uniquely ours.\r \r Do not hesitate to seek Jo Ann and her team's services! You will not be disappointed as they are truly the best! \r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/5/2013

August 2012 wedding. JoAnn is by far the best wedding planner around. Her attention to detail, unique understanding of family, and her desire to do anything needed to give you the wedding of your dreams is unparalleled. If you are looking for a wedding planner, look no further. JoAnn and her team are the best. more

Don't hesitate! 9/29/2011

The world of weddings can get pretty confusing and overwhelming, and I am so grateful we had Joann and John to help us plan our beautiful wedding. I was out of town a lot, and my mind was put at ease--any questions or concerns, and Joann was right there with answers and solutions. She worked with our vision and budget and in the end, our wedding was perfect! more

The Best Day...Care of JoAnn and her Team 12/3/2010

Joann and her team of professionals truly made my daughters wedding a huge success. The attention to detail and quality was incredible. You know that it is often the simple things that can make a huge impression and difference. As the mother of the bride, there was not one moment where I was uncertain, stressed or worried that anything would not happen the way my daughter had dreamed. Simple acts of kindness, like grabbing my comfy shoes when I kicked off my heels or seamlessly handling the misstep when Grandmother missed her ride to the church from the hotel, made us feel like royalty. more

Highly recommended 8/14/2010

Schwartz & Woodward are the best wedding planners in Houston, hands down. Their attention to detail and taste is amazing. My biggest concern when planning my wedding was my budget. If I had done the planning myself, I wouldn't have known if I was getting the most for my money. Because of JoAnn's experience, reputation and contacts, not only was I reassured that I was getting the best possible within my budget, but I was treated like royalty. I had to ask more than once if we were going over budget because I was so surprised at the quality. JoAnn always said - We will make it fit in the budget. Planning a wedding with JoAnn was easy and relatively stress free. more

warning for those without limitless income 1/7/2010

I considering many wedding coordinators, including Schwartz and Woodward. They were by far the most expensive, at least double the cost of even the trendiest planners I spoke to. I couldn't believe it! I'm sure they do a great job, but there are many other coordinators who come with glowing reviews who don't charge anywhere near as much. Just be wary and shop around! Pros: friendly and caring Cons: ouch, price! more

The Best Decision about our Wedding was to Hire JoAnn! 7/28/2009

My husband and I made the decision to have a destination wedding. We wanted to make it a wonderful memory for us, family and our great friends who live all over the world. To make things more challenging, both my husband and I are incredibly detailed and pretty much a ""perfectionist couple."" A challenge for anyone who would agree to help us. A friend of ours talked to us about JoAnn. We went to meet her on a morning, about a month and a half before our wedding date. By that afternoon we had hired JoAnn. She was incredible. Detailed, organized, VERY caring and hard working. She worked non-stop from that day forward and even helped me out with post-wedding follow up's for several weeks after the wedding. We got married at the Ritz Carlton in the Cayman Islands. An absolute dream of a wedding. We had over 100 adults and over 30 children for our four-day wedding; the vast majority of our guests traveled from out of the US. JoAnn knew how difficult it would be to manage our guests schedules. We wanted to provide courtesy transport for many of them as well as to make their stay in the Caymans truly wonderful. That took an incredible amount of planning and organizing on JoAnn's part. She did it all. I was so overwhelmed to see how many of our guests actually made it to the wedding. Our wedding was in December (Dec 9th), which is often a travel/vacation month for many of the countries where our closest friends live. The wedding consisted of a family dinner (we opted to have that instead of the typical rehearsal dinner); a welcome dinner (again something we wanted to do to welcome our guests from all over the world); a catamaran ride and swimming with sting ray afternoon; and the wedding and reception. Being the Caymans, the vast majority of the things needed for the wedding were flown in. She managed that entire process and everything arrived on time; not even a custom glitch! Another element of difficulty was that our wedding and reception were on a sunday. Caymans is a very devoted catholic island and loud music isn't normally allowed on sunday's. Well ... JoAnn worked with the Ritz to get a special permit from the authorities in the Caymans to have that restriction waived. Being that I am Latin and many of our guests traveled from Latin America (we LOVE to dance), we were very pleased to see this. Pros: Incredibly organized; creative; great vendors; hard worker more

The wedding of our dreams 7/26/2009

JoAnn and John managed to organize our entire wedding stress free. I knew the basics of what I wanted and JoAnn transformed them into beautiful details making our wedding gorgeous and flawless. It was the best night of our lives and we would not have changed anything about it. Because of JoAnn and John, everything ran smoothly and the reception was a blast. Thank you JoAnn and John for the efforts you took to make our wedding perfect. Pros: Accessibility, prompt, best vendors more

Organized, efficient, excellent coordinators 7/24/2009

JoAnn and John did an excellent job coordinating our daughter's wedding a few weeks ago. The vendors they recommended were fantastic, from the cake that was the best I have ever tasted, to the photographer who took in excess of 1000 beautiful photos, to the florist whose creations were spectacular, to the seamstress who made my wedding gown become my daughter's dream. It all came together wonderfully. Planning a wedding long distance would have been a nightmare without their help. They kept in constant communication the entire planning process via email or phone. Any concerns were addressed within hours. John was thoughtful and caring and JoAnn was efficient and understanding. They both had our cars loaded and valuables stowed at the end of the reception so we had nothing to worry about but to kiss the couple goodbye and relax. I definitely recommend them to anyone planning a wedding. Pros: Organized, Kept in constant communication, Great vendors more

They were the best decision I made for our wedding 7/23/2009

Choosing JoAnn and John to be a part of my 6/6/09 wedding was the best decision we made during the entire planning process. more

A great choice!!! 7/22/2009

I was married in april of 09 and was one of those brides who was COMPLETELY LOST and had no idea what I was doing, I had thought about hiring a planner in feb 08 when I got engaged but I passed and Feb. 09 came around and I was about to call the whole thing off because I couldnt sleep or function and like I said I was completely lost! I called around looking for a good wedding planner and was blown off several times by other ppl but not JoAnn! I called her and we talked for over an hour explaining everything back and forth. She already had a wedding booked for my day and so her FABULOUS team took care of special day but JoAnn was there every step of the way and introduced me to phenominal vendors( ones with great work that you can count on and of corse everyone knew her, and loved working with her!) She also went to meetings with vendors with me and helped me with the confusing family side of things! She is very personal and JoAnn's husband John is fantastic as well, he helped my husband get his side of things handled! Whether JoAnn is there for you or her great team your wedding will be a dream come true! I would recommend her for any function not only weddings! THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE AT SCHWARTZ AND WOODWARD!!! Pros: SUPER PRODUCTIVE, CARING AND A DOWN RIGHT LIFE SAVER!!! Cons: That I didnt hire them sooner! more

Organized, Thoughtful & Creative Wedding Planning 7/22/2009

The most wonderful wedding consultants!!!! 7/21/2009

This is a review that should have been written a year Pros: Knowledgable, helpful, Personally relates to clients Cons: Can't think of a thing I would change. more

Forever In Our Hearts! 7/21/2009

Jo Ann and her husband will FOREVER hold a special place in my heart. Our daughter's wedding was wonderful and my heartfelt dream was that our daughter (and her Dad and me) truly would enjoy her day without the stress of wedding details...and WE did, thanks to Schwartz and Woodward! I so appreciated Jo Ann's vendor reccommendations..They exceeded our expectations!Wonderful & professional! Pros: Very organized and allowed me to totally enjoy the day! Cons: Not a single one! more

She was the biggest source of stress 7/2/2009

She was the single source of stress for my wedding. She was reluctant to use vendors that were not on her list and was very rude and bossy to them. My florist did not like working with her (for good reason). On the day of the rehearsal she rushed us through as though she had somewhere else she had to be. She argued with the officiant over how the bridal party would walk down the aisle without even consulting me for my opinion. We would have been much better off without her. more

We were so lucky to have worked with them! 12/15/2008

Jo Ann, John and their team of experts are just what you need to throw an organized and elegant wedding. With only 4 months to plan a thousand person wedding with three days worth of celebrations, the wedding went without a hitch and this was do to the teamwork between us and the Schwartz & Woodward team. They were instrumental every step of the way and helped plan our dream wedding. They referred us to the best vendors Houston has to offer without hurting our budget. Jo Ann and John made sure to cater to our needs, our parents needs, and most importantly our guests needs. We had interviewed other wedding planners, and Jo Ann and John were the most organized. Our guests cannot stop raving on how organized, beautiful and personal our wedding was -- which is a tall order when we had a thousand guests at our wedding celebration and reception. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted! We are so glad that we chose to work with Schwartz & Woodward. Our wedding will be featured in Platinum Weddings in March of 2009 and in the Weddings in Houston magazine in January. Thank you Jo Ann and John! Pros: Organized, Works with great vendors, Extremely nice more

I loved my wedding!! 12/15/2008

Words cannot express how greatful I am to JoAnn and John Woodward. I had the wedding of my dreams and best of all I was able to remember it. You cannot ask for a more professional and warm couple to help you wilh all the wedding details and spare you from all the things that could have gone wrong. All I did was show up and marry the love of my life. Thanks JoAnn and John! Pros: I had a stress free wedding more
