“Judy Cordell Events was a game changer in our wedding planning process. Judy listened to our wedding vision, elevated our ideas, and most importantly brought it all to life. An important factor to us was to be able to relax and enjoy our big day with our family and friends, Judy and her team made that possible through her level of detail, project management, and experience in the wedding/events industry. We could not imagine our day without Judy! Judy and the team were the glue to making our day so special and memorable. Judy Cordell Events – THANK YOU!!!!!” – Taylor
“Judy offered so many valuable options to meet our needs! She walked us through the process and took care of every detail to make sure that everything was perfect. I don’t know if there is a harder working wedding planner. She makes sure that you’re delighted and goes above and beyond. Judy worries about everything for you so that you can just enjoy the whole celebration.” – Maddie
“With my daughter living out of state planning her wedding and factoring in her fiancé serving in the Marine Corps, I knew we needed a very special wedding planner to help us plan with the uncertainty of military life and the post COVID world of event planning that was surging from pent up demand. So when Morgan and Ryan were engaged right after Christmas in 2021, I was thrilled when they chose Judy Cordell Events to help plan the most important day of their lives together. Morgan’s sister, my daughter Jenn, was the Maid of Honor and together we served as Morgan’s boots on the ground as Morgan and Ryan were planning from afar. Without Judy Cordell Events, I have no idea how we would have pulled this off.
Judy and her team were there from day 1- helping us make the most important decisions in an orderly and well-orchestrated manner. Judy helped us review all the options and guided us as we made decisions and weaved everything together like an intricate puzzle. Every step of the way, all attention was on making sure every decision reflected Morgan and Ryan’s own dreams, priorities and budget to ensure the wedding day was specifically designed with their wishes in mind.
The team of vendors were as attentive and responsive as Judy Cordell Events. We loved each and every vendor from the awesome photographers to the talented hair and makeup team. And the florals and venue were simply gorgeous and exactly what Morgan was imaging. And as any of the typical and unexpected hiccups arose as we approached the day, Judy made sure to get everything smoothed out as expected with the notebook of signed contracts in hand.
As we approached the special day and experienced each second of Morgan and Ryan’s best day ever, there are so many touching moments that Judy and her team made sure were not missed. From the bridesmaid’s time in the bridal suite with the beautiful bride to the intimate ceremony to the joyous reception that was tailor made for the newlyweds, each moment brought so much joy and happiness to the day. And as we celebrated the bride and groom with glistening sparklers as they drove off, our family knew the newlyweds had a day they will never forget with the family and friends they love the most.
All of this was made possible with the expertise, patience, guidance, hard work and team of vendors provide by Judy Cordell Events. I highly recommend using Judy Cordell events and know any engaged couple who is fortunate to have Judy and her team by your side will have all their expectations met and their wedding day dreams will come true!” – Kathy
“Judy and her team are wonderful. I can say, without a doubt, that Judy made our wedding the wedding of our dreams. From the beginning stages of planning to the day of the wedding, Judy went above and beyond to make our day so special. She managed all of our vendors, family members, and all of the moving parts of our wedding. Judy is a great communicator and the perfect advocate to have on your team. She patiently listened to every single request and concern, and she addressed all of them. Judy’s expertise is so helpful, and she has great ideas. Judy truly went above and beyond for us, and she feels like part of our family now. Hire Judy and her team to make all of your wedding dreams come true!!” – Maggie
“My name is Shane and I am the FOB. It is my pleasure and honor to write a review for Judy Cordell. I am probably not your typical FOB as I was involved from Day 1 in every aspect of our daughter’s wedding. It is just my nature and personality. Both my wife and daughter knew this going in to the planning of this wedding. In full disclosure, I have my own professional services company and have over 30 years of experience in professional services.
As a result, I know what my clients expect of me and I also expect the same level of service in dealing with other professionals. In a word, Judy was professional. Judy not only met my expectations, which many will tell you is not always an easy job, but far exceeded our expectations. I could expand on everything Judy did for my daughter and our family to make our daughter’s dream wedding a reality, but I will not for sake of brevity. Judy has so many tools available to her in her arsenal from years of experience. She absolutely hit some home runs with some of her vendor referrals. Whether it was Betty Jameson and her company, Scribbles and Swirls, for all of our printing and stationery needs, or Center Stage Floors or Mr. Ken Brown for our uniquely engraved river rock wedding favors, these vendors were referrals from Judy and they were the absolute best in the industry. Every one of our wedding guests commented on their services. These referrals alone were worth every penny spent on Judy’s services. The best part, however, was Judy herself and her team of assistants on our daughter’s actual wedding day. Every wedding has surprises and ours was no exception. Judy took care of everything, and I literally mean everything. Our daughter was left alone to enjoy the greatness of her special day without having to worry about anything or anyone. Judy took care of every little detail. Throughout our journey together, Judy became more than just our wedding planner. She became a close friend and more importantly, a true blessing from God. In closing, I strongly recommend Judy and Judy Cordell Events to anyone needing a wedding planner. Her level of communication is unmatched and she will devote all of her efforts, time and resources to making your special day a reality. Thank you Judy! You were appreciated more than you will ever know.” – Shane
“I knew Judy from working at The Clubs of Prestonwood. My coordinator and I asked her to help plan an open house at the Club, two years in a row. After seeing her work the first year, I knew right then that she would be my Wedding Planner when that time came. Well, that time came this year and I immediately called Judy! We had a short window of three months but I had no doubt in Judy that she would get it done. She’s not only the sweetest human being my husband and I have ever met but she is one of the best in the industry. She listens to all of your wants and needs, she guides you in the right direction if you’re unsure about something, she’s organized and extremely detailed, and she truly brings your vision to life! Let me tell you, I had a fall themed wedding and wanted something different as my exit item. Judy’s brilliant idea was for my guests to throw leaves in the air while my Husband and I ran through. To ensure it actually worked, Judy spent hours throwing leaves in the air then racking/collecting them all, over and over again! True dedication! We could not have asked for a more magical wedding, and Judy made that happen! We are SO thankful for her. She will forever be a part of our lives.” – Brittany
“Judy is the wedding planner of every bride and groom’s dreams! My husband, family and I had the honor of working with Judy throughout our wedding planning process. Not only is Judy extremely knowledgeable of the wedding industry, professional and responsive, but she’s truly a kind and wonderful soul that I enjoyed being around so very much. She was at every one of our vendor meetings, referred us to excellent vendors and ensured every tiny detail was accounted for. Our wedding day COULD NOT have been as perfect as it was without the help of Judy and her amazing team. Do yourself a favor and hire Judy Cordell Events… it will be the best decision for the best day of your life!” – Miranda
“Judy and her team at Judy Cordell Events are fabulous! We had the pleasure to work with Judy throughout the entirety of our planning process and it was definitely the best decision we made. Judy was beyond knowledgeable, helpful, and organized which made the planning as calm as possible. She went to all vendor meetings with us. Judy did an excellent job facilitating the meetings, asking the right questions, offering suggestions, and helping with contracts.
Judy was attentive, easily available, and her many years of experience resulted in so many highlights of my daughter’s beautiful wedding. You will not be disappointed in hiring Judy Cordell Events.” – Lori
“Hiring Judy was one of the best decisions my husband and I made in our wedding planning process. Judy is so knowledgeable about the wedding and event business and her expertise helped us in so many ways along the way. From guiding us and keeping tabs on things on the to-do list, to getting us in touch with reputable and trusted vendors, Judy was there every step of the way to make sure we were creating the wedding we desired. Her communication was top-notch and she was always ready to answer questions. Courteous and friendly, every meeting and goal met was pleasant. She streamlined our event for us and managed everything so that we could have fun on our big day! My mom later sang Judy’s praises to me. She commented on how I didn’t look at all stressed during my wedding. I can tell you with absolute certainty that is because I trusted in Judy and her team for the day of. And everything went so perfectly! You won’t regret having Judy as your wedding planner and day-of-coordinator. Her expertise and management ensured our perfect and most fun wedding day!” – Marissa
“Judy and her team are amazing!! They were exactly what we were looking for when we started to plan our wedding. She is super organized and patient. She went with us to all of our Vendor meetings and helped answer questions during the planning process and during the days just prior to our wedding. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better team of professionals to make our day the most amazing day ever. Judy and her team are wonderful and are so sweet, down to earth and personable!” – Kristin
“Judy! There are not enough words to describe this wonderful woman. She took all my inspirations and made my day more than I could have asked for. I can honestly say that without her my wedding would not have turned out so great. She was super helpful in every aspect. She did not hesitate to help us with any request big or small. She is such a great person, that I truly believe our relationship with Judy will remain even after the wedding. My big day was EVERYTHING and more. I remember walking in and being on the verge of tears from how beautiful everything was. Please if you are looking for someone to plan your special day and want it to be PERFECT, look no further because Judy is the absolute best! We love you Judy!” – Meagan
“Judy was a joy to work with! As a couple who planned and last-minute re-planned their wedding, we cannot say enough great things about Judy’s flexibility and willingness to accomplish our vision. Despite the many road blocks that COVID presented, my family was at ease because Judy took every detail into careful consideration. I can tell she loves what she does because I would get little texts from her throughout the week wherein she would mention how excited she was about a certain detail or make suggestions on how to accomplish our vision – it was in these moments I wondered if she thought more about my wedding than I did. By the end of the event, it felt like Judy was part of the family! I’m sure there were hiccups throughout the wedding day, but I’ll never know because Judy and her team did a wonderful job of coordinating with the vendors. My family is so thankful to have worked with such an amazing coordinator!” – Natalie
“Planning a wedding during COVID is not easy, but Judy made it happen. She brought our vision and dreams to light! With the constant changes during this time she was always there to handle issues if they arose. Judy spent so much time and put in so much effort to make sure we got what we wanted. She is truly an expert planner with a lot of experience and I felt this in the months leading up to our wedding. She thought of all possible scenarios, plans A/B/C and so many things I did not even think of. Even during the times I couldn’t be present due to personal reasons, she was “on top” of everything and made the planning less stressful for me. She was responsive to each early morning emails and held open communication and was flexible with plans and changes. My wedding day was magical and she did an incredible job setting up the wedding/reception with all of my decor. It was exactly how I had envisioned!!!” – Sarah
“From the moment I had Judy on the phone for an initial interview, I knew I just had to hire her to help plan and execute our big day. Judy helped us plan every single detail, both big and small, of our wedding from day one and did such a phenomenal job! Judy listened to each idea and desire that I had and carried them all out to perfection. We were able to trust Judy with everything wedding related and knew that she was taking care of it and in the best way possible. With her vast experience in the wedding business, Judy knows a vendor for absolutely everything and at different price points which was helpful when planning things like floral, music, invitations, lighting, rentals, etc. – you name it – she knows someone by first name and has probably worked with them before which is great. One of the things that I valued most about working with Judy was her excellent communication -she will keep you up to date with EVERYTHING and in a very timely manner. Judy never kept us waiting for a reply on anything and was on top of everything (in fact, three steps ahead of us) during the entire planning process which was comforting and helped reduce any stress. We communicated frequently by email, phone calls and even texts. This was super important to me because I knew that I needed someone that I could reach at any time whereas a lot of planners in the Dallas area charge you each time you contact them or even worse, allot you a certain number of “communications” and limit you to a specified time frame. With Judy, this is definitely not the case (we hired her as a full time planner and it was the best decision). Not only did she communicate with me in a timely and professional manner but she also communicated with each of the other vendors we used (photographer, videographer, venue, floral, hair/makeup, etc.) to make sure each team knew the details and delivered the services I was looking for. Bottom line, when looking for a wedding planner, you want your planner to be devoted to your wedding to ensure that that the planning and the big day run seamlessly and Judy did just that and more! Do yourself a favor and reach out to Judy for all of your wedding planning needs.” – Natalie S
“Judy was great to work with! She was very pleasant, detail oriented, gave plenty of suggestions and resources when we needed it. She went above and beyond by being at key events like the dress fitting or engagement photos. This was great because we didn’t have friends or family to help with this. My family and friends loved her on the day of the event. Everything ran smoothly because she was very organized and detail oriented. We could not have picked a better planner!” – Joselin
“We had first-hand knowledge of the fantastic work of Judy Cordell Events, so it was an easy choice to bring Judy on board to help with my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding. Although I can’t say enough about her guidance through the planning stage, it was the day of the wedding that she and her team proved themselves indispensable. They made magic in four months and made it a joyful experience.” – Chris
“Having been to several events that Judy has coordinated, when we decided to have an anniversary celebration and vow renewal, we knew we wanted Judy to come alongside of us to assure us our event was everything we dreamed it could be. Judy stepped in and suggested options for vendors and each of the parts of our upcoming event. She was always available for answering all types of questions from etiquette to event-specific choices. She knew about so many details that I wanted but didn’t want to make decisions on like the table linens. She just knew what we would like. She was there to help advise our floral decorations; choice of DJ’s -and even suggested special songs to be played; suggested a graphic designer for invitations who nailed it the first draft (we only needed a couple of minor changes); attended the tasting at our country club to make final decisions on food; she worked with the event manager at the club to assure our expectations were met; her team was there to set up and she even brought some picture frames that better suited our décor than what our pictures are usually displayed in at home. Judy took care of everything so we really got to enjoy our vow renewal and anniversary celebration. She made suggestions that saved us significant dollars. She was always available for discussions in person or by phone. We had so many guests tell us what a great party we had. I highly recommend Judy Cordell to help plan, coordinate and execute your event—of any kind. She is fabulous! No one like her in attention to the smallest detail.” – Gayle
“Judy and her team are truly the best! We were so blessed to have her plan and implement the most amazing wedding for our daughter. She made the planning process stress-free and her attention to detail is incredible. We received MANY compliments during and after the wedding on how beautiful the wedding and reception were and how the evening could not have been more perfect! Judy and her team took care of everything while we were able to sit back and enjoy the most amazing evening. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner! Thank you cannot describe our appreciation for making such a memorable day so perfect for our family and guests. We would highly recommend Judy to anyone looking for a special event or wedding planner. She’s truly the best!!” – Janet
“Father of the bride speaking here: You might think you don’t need a wedding planner (I know I did) but you’re wrong. You do. And you need Judy. Judy and her team did an outstanding job on our daughter’s wedding this month. I have no doubt that there are areas of the wedding that may have gone horribly wrong if Judy hadn’t been there thru the entire process to make sure it was a beautiful, stress-free wedding.” – Brett
“Judy was with us every single step of the way, took our random ideas for the wedding and created a beautiful masterpiece that was exactly what we had wanted. She handles literally EVERYTHING and keeps things moving and takes away the stress. I actually was able to enjoy the wedding planning stuff because of Judy and her incredible team. She is now a part of our family forever and EVERYONE should have a Judy in their life. Seriously… she is THAT GOOD! We love Judy!!!” – Brittany
“Judy is absolutely FANTASTIC. She truly loves and cares for her clients, and you can see that by how she handles everything with such precision and care from the moment you contact her to when you exit your reception – as well as a few check-ins after the event as well. Judy is personable and professional at what she does, making it comfortable and easy to work with her. As a bride with no knack for planning, decorating or organizing, Judy was a tremendous help every step of the way. My mother and I say that she is worth E V E R Y penny. She helped us find the perfect venue for our reception as well as help book hotels necessary for out of town guests. She even thought out the logistics of traveling time and distance from the ceremony to reception, and from the reception to the hotel. She not only has you, the bride, in mind, but she has the guests in mind when planning and organizing. The vendors she recommended were phenomenal and the guests were extremely complimentary of the food, cake, flowers, layout and décor of the reception. She thought of everything down to the tiniest details to make sure our reception was picture perfect. (Side story: I threw the discus in college and Judy had the florist create a ‘discus bouquet’ for me to throw for the bouquet toss. Everybody, including myself, loved it!). She made our reception comfortable and allowed us to have our own personal touches, which was extremely important to us. Her staff for the day of coordinating were extremely professional and attentive to our guests and made sure everything ran smoothly. There was never a moment of fear with Judy and her staff! There was little to no stress throughout the whole wedding planning process, and the day of went flawlessly. I cannot recommend her enough! She goes above and beyond to make her clients happy. She is the absolute best!” – Kate
“Judy is the best wedding planner around! She is very knowledgeable and efficient. She has so many wonderful ideas and wants what’s best for you. Not to mention she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I would recommend her to anyone!! You won’t regret it.” – Audrey
“You may even want to hire her before you are engaged…She is that good. She knows EVERYTHING you will know to make your wedding perfect and best of all stress free for all involved the day of! Besides being mega-knowledgeable about all things wedding, she is a really nice person. You will not regret the $$ sent on her fee (you will get more than she describes) and her fee is very reasonable considering what she delivers. Short version…she is awesome!” – Ann
“Thank you for a wonderful wedding! We could not have done it without you. Thank you for being patient with us. We were both so busy and not the best at making decisions. Thank you for keeping us on track. It was so nice to know that everything was taken care of several weeks before the wedding. I was able to be pretty relaxed leading up the big day. Thank you for handling the unexpected guests so well. Most people were unaware of the problem because you and your staff were able to take care of it so quickly. We got numerous compliments on the wedding and reception. People loved the venue, food and flowers. One of my friends said that if she didn’t know Kate and Meka before the wedding, she would have after the reception. She loved how everything about the wedding and reception was personalized to Kate and Meka. You certainly live up to your tagline! Your fee was the best money we’ve ever spent! Thanks again for everything!” – Bill, Jana, Meka & Kate
“Judy is TRULY a gifted, detail-oriented, hard-working, get-it-done, no stone left unturned, extremely organized, and excellent wedding planner. She goes above and beyond her duties to make sure weddings are absolutely perfect and smooth. I appreciated the way she was always willing to make herself available, never rushed our appointments, and asked questions that I never would have thought of! She has such great experience and her expertise was SO helpful. She knows the industry; she knows what works and what doesn’t. She’s honest about how to make things the most smooth without impeding on a bride’s vision – SO IMPORTANT. Without Judy, there is just no way our wedding would have felt so perfect. She ensured me along the entire wedding planning process, and I always felt like things were taken care of. Thank you, Judy! Our special day is so cherished and so are you!” – Katherine
“Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You made my wedding day stress free and so special. You are a very talented wedding coordinator. So thankful Kim referred you. We appreciate you so much.” – Ernie & Nicole
“Bryan and I can’t thank you enough for all you and your team did for Bryan and I on our wedding day. It was the most smooth/perfect day. It honestly went better than I even expected and our reception décor was amazing! We were beyond pleased with how everything turned out. It would have not been perfect without you, Judy, so thank you from the bottom or our hearts.” – Amanda & Bryan
“We cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make our day so wonderful. You are absolutely amazing and we are so thankful we were referred to you. We are dropping your name to all of our newly engaged friends!” – Jenna
“We do not have enough space for the many thank yous that you deserve! Every detail from the cocktail party to the cupcakes to the walk down the aisle – it was all perfect! Thank you for your time and effort! The Lifers!” – Claudia & Roy
“Words can’t truly express my thanks to you for the perfection of Anne’s wedding! We’re still basking in the happiness of it all – ‘the best wedding our guests felt they had ever attended’! More than the night itself, I also want to thank you for a wonderful wedding year – for ice cream and cookies, for delightful meetings and phone calls, for all your kindness, help and experience in guiding us through everything! You’ve given us such happy memories. Thank you! Thank you!” – Cathe
“We could not have done any of the weddings without your dedication and the LOVE you put into everything. We are blessed by your talent and honored to call you friend.” – Jackie
“Thanks for handling the contracts, keeping your patience, creating a beautiful reception, helping our daughter have the dream wedding she wanted, negotiating with the florist, staying flexible with schedules, handling the ‘unexpected’ at the reception, getting a great videographer last minute, not objecting when we found services on our own, letting us enjoy the wedding day! You are fabulous! Our #1 recommendation!” – Leslie
“Thank you for all your party planning and efforts before and during my surprise birthday party. Because of you, everyone had a great time and the party went off without a hitch. You are to be commended for a fantastic job. Because of your efforts, I was able to experience one of the most incredible nights of my life.” – Mark
“Words cannot explain the gratefulness in my heart for what you did to make the wedding such a spectacular event! The countless hours I’m sure I don’t even know about, the phone calls, the planning, the meetings, the counting, organizing, thinking of so many things I hadn’t thought of…the list goes on and on. I am so thankful God gave people gifts like that!” – Helen
“Thanks so very much for making my party one that surpassed my expectations! What an amazingly talented woman you are. I love your spirit for life! You are awesome and your staff was amazing! People are still talking about my party.” – Maria
“Let’s put it this way: I didn’t have time to plan a wedding, on a tight budget and only wanted to plan for four months. Judy took care of EVERYTHING down to the last detail letting me be as much or as little involved as I wanted. She has amazing attention to detail and can massage a budget like no other.
She has connections with every fabulous vendor in the area with good prices. She also does amazingly well with crazy family dynamics, yet somehow doesn’t show that she’s had to deal with any issue to anyone. There is no way any other wedding planner does the job like she does. ANY event that you need done flawlessly, she is your woman.” – Michelle
“Thank you for taking our vision and bringing it to life at The Fort Worth Convention Center! From the jazz orchestra, the picture booth, the flowers, the staging décor, the food, the golden original shoes for Rev. and Mrs. Chew, the photography, the videography, etc., all 500 guests left The Golden Event telling everyone that this event was beyond their imagination and better than any other banquet or event they’d ever attended – we heard from city officials to the common person. The entire event was simply beautiful!! – WOW Judy!!!” – Delice
“From a large lawn party at my home to receptions and parties in different cities and venues, you and your professional team have provided exemplary services every time, leaving no detail unattended. You place a personal stamp of success on every event, and Erin’s wedding was no exception. It was so special to our family, and she said it was everything she had dreamed of since a little girl. It left us with wonderful memories and our guests saying that it was the most fun wedding they had ever attended.” – Kathy
