From our first phone call to the very last second of our wedding, Janice was amazing. As a working mom of 3 kids, I have to be extremely organized and prepared and Janice really impressed me with her attention to detail, organization, preparation, creative thinking and responsiveness. There are times when you meet someone and you know that when they say, "it's handled," that you can have total peace of mind that whatever the situation, it is in fact handled. Janice is one of those rare people. Being able to trust someone with the details and the overall success of an event as important as your wedding -- that is simply priceless.

Janice is amazing! I was planning my wedding from across the country and with no idea where to begin, and she was so wonderful. She was always available by phone or e-mail and answered every question right away, and her list of contacts in the Valley set us up with the most gorgeous wedding we could imagine. She was also very good about keeping us on track with our planning, and made us think about issues that would never have crossed our minds but that made the event run so much more smoothly for our guests. Everything was perfect, we are still glowing from our wedding!

One thing I learned from preparing for our beautiful Napa wedding is that YOU MUST HAVE A GREAT wedding planner! My husband and I are from NYC, and trust me, we are not shy to give our feedback in a "NY-second" if we are not satisfied. When we were planning our destination wedding at Auberge Du Soleil, honestly we were a bit anxious and worried since we were not there physically, but working with Janice had those thoughts melt away. We knew we were in great hands! Janice made sure that we were on time and on top of basically everything- she was super responsive and the quality of service was just fantastic. She went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding day went flawless- couldn't ask for a better wedding planner!

Janice was able to bring our vision to life and create a magical day for everyone in attendance. We built our wedding from the ground up, and her experience, knowledge and foresight was integral to the success of our day. She is honest, ethical, supportive, and always two steps ahead on any issue that could potentially arise. She was budget-conscious, full of ideas and inspiration, and accommodating through the very last detail. She made sure that we were punctual on our end of the planning and kept us accountable, which was extremely helpful. She far surpassed our expectations!

Janice was fantastic. She is a "no fuss, no muss", take charge kind of gal. She'll get you headed in the right direction and is very good about communication. Every vendor she recommended to us seemed hand-picked based on our personalities and knowing whether or not they'd be a good fit. From flowers, photography, DJs, Officiants and wedding rehearsal venues - she knows all about Napa and will make an excellent fit that really is built just for the two of you. She is also very good at letting you know what you really "need" in a wedding to help avoid extra costs. We highly recommend her. You won't go wrong! There's a reason she's called "Sarge" because come the day of your wedding, everything will be taken care of - top to bottom. Our wedding went flawlessly, her team made sure things went smoothly, we were able to make the most of the limited time we had to enjoy our friends and family who traveled from near and far to attend our destination wedding. Go with Rue 29 - you won't go wrong! She is worth every penny! We promise!

My wife and I had a great experience working with Janice and would highly recommend Rue 29. Responsiveness and quality are beyond what we hoped for. She's extremely professional in coordinating with the other vendors and provides excellent value through her Rue 29 discounts with preferred vendors. Janice was a tremendous help to our wedding and really feel she helped enhance the wedding planning experience. Not sure how we could have done it without her.

Janice knows her stuff! The wedding she helped us with was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. Not only does Janice know all the intricacies of planning a wedding but her knowledge of vendors is superb. We were thrilled with each and every vendor which is a direct reflection on Janice. Not only is Janice organized while showing great attention to detail, her communications are excellent. Janice is prompt via email and clear and concise when writing or speaking. Her sense of humor can lighten a stressful moment. It was an honor to have Janice on our team. We recommend her highly and without reservation.

Having Janice and Co. handle the details made the destination wedding not only possible but absolutely enchanting. EVERYTHING was taken care of par excellence. On wedding day, I the MOB, had my hair and make-up done, helped my daughter dress, watched while pics were shot, was handed champagne at every turn, was kept hydrated and had one of the best days of my life. While we had various vendors, Janice referred them all. If I were to make one suggestion, it would be...hire her now before she's booked!

Get her before she books up! She is terrific. She is very experienced, has great sources for vendors (photographers, florists, venues, chalkboard artists, music/entertainment, transportation -- you name it) -- and she is very thorough and responsive. She is very proactive, but also very attuned to the desires of the bridal party. She gets things done. Janice takes care of things so you can enjoy the wedding. We could not have been more pleased with her and her services.

Janice was absolutely essential to our wedding. She knows an incredible amount about Napa venues, vendors and general do’s and don’ts. She helped us select the absolute best vendors and also kept us on budget while making recommendations that made all the difference in our day. And her day-of on-site presence gave us peace of mind and kept everything organized and perfect. Most of the compliments we received that night were related to something Janice suggested or handled. We planned our wedding from the East Coast and did not at all feel at a disadvantage having Janice in Napa - she made the experience absolutely wonderful. We would absolutely use her and her team again to plan an event in Napa.
