South Carolina’s Top Rated Local® Event Planners Award Winner: Yoj Events

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Yoj Events is a 2019 award winner for event planners in South Carolina!

Whether you’re planning a wedding, a corporate event or any other type of event, make it memorable by relying on the experts at Yoj Events.

Yoj Events has received hundreds of reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.91 stars, earning them an impeccable Rating Score™ of 97.10 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 event planners in all of South Carolina!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Yoj helped plan and coordinate my wedding, and they were the best! They had great opinions about everything; they were quick to reply and never pushed me one way or the other on any given detail. On the day of the wedding, they were prompt in dealing with a mini emergency (that was not their fault) and handled it with grace! During the reception, they were so helpful in making sure Heath and I were on target, in the right place at the right time and had a drink and some food to eat! They are the very best!” – Kate T.

Not Your Average Event Planning Company

Monique Semper, the owner of Yoj Events, generously gave us a few minutes of her time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Yoj Events apart from the many other event planners in South Carolina. Here’s Monique’s response:

“We really pride ourselves on being accommodating, professional, flexible and approachable. We learn about our clients’ vision and become a gatekeeper for their vision. When people walk in for the event, they truly see the couple’s personality, and that’s what we strive for — to reflect their past and their future.”

Monique went on to add:

“We have a storefront with an arsenal of items to use for our clients, from pillows and lanterns to cake stands, which serves as a home base and is an added value that we offer our clients.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Yoj Events and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Monique had to say:

“We consider ourselves to be ambassadors of Charleston — all of the press it has gotten has put Charleston on the map as a premier destination. Our aim is to live up to that and create a well-rounded experience for the couple and their guests. It’s all about their experience as a whole.”

Building Success by Providing a Great Client Experience

When we asked Monique about Yoj Events’ secret to such a strong online reputation, she said:

“A lot of times clients have such a great experience that they organically leave a review. Our clients become our friends — it is wonderful!”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Yoj Events has spread the word about who they are and what they do by keeping their website updated with relevant content, by participating in the local wedding guide and by being active on social media, but their biggest source of new business is word of mouth from their happy clients.

Clearly, Monique knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other event planners out there:

“Lately, it seems like people are very quick to be a wedding planner. Some don’t understand that it’s a very slow process to get your name out there. Things really need to sync together; in order to do that, you have to be very diplomatic, approachable and use your vast experience to help the client — building that takes time and hard work. Considering that there are so many moving parts to the wedding planning process, having experience is your best advantage.”


Congratulations to the team at Yoj Events for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Monique, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Yoj Events in Charleston. Visit their website today!

“When you’re starting a business, focus is key. Network with other venues… Use social media platforms because they are free. …Focus on the little pieces that make everything big…”
