Planning social events was a big part of JoAnn Gregoli’s life upon graduation from college. After receiving her degree in Public Relations, she joined a PR firm where she planned events for many major corporations, as well as private events for corporate clients. By far, one of her most memorable and touching projects was assisting brides who lost wedding venues after the attacks on NYC on 9/11. With the assistance of The Knot and Brides magazine, she was able to relocate over 200 brides to new venues around the city.

The Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) awarded JoAnn the title of Professional Wedding Planner and she was appointed the New Jersey State Coordinator of ABC. She completed the ABC’s Course and earned the distinction of Master Wedding Planner. She was also appointed the New York Metro Coordinator for the Association.

Over the years, destination weddings have grown immensely and are more than just a trend. JoAnn has been recognized as a guru in this area. Modern Bride magazine included her as one of their Trendsetters of the Year and she was also recently recognized as one of the Top 25 Most Influential Wedding Planners in the world!

JoAnn’s passion is to be an advocate for her couples and make sure every vendor is creative and passionate about their craft. She is a celebrity planner who has worked with Robin Roberts, George Clooney, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Michael Gelman and Katie Cassidy, to name a few

During the Covid pandemic, JoAnn created a non-profit www.sewingangels.org to help the front line workers and battered women’s shelters with making and distributing much-needed PPE! This endeavor was noticed by the Good Morning America, CBS Early Show, Channel 7, New York Times and plus countless other outlets.
