  • My fiance and I worked with Janet on elopement plans after our original wedding plans were scrapped due to the pandemic and we had to consider other cities. We decided to be 'nimble' for our little outdoors micro-elopement, which meant making late decisions about time, date, and location based on the weather. It took months for things to line up correctly to make it all happen, and Janet stuck with us throughout and was supremely calm, patient, and understanding of our situation. (Not only that, but she did some location scounting for us as well, since we were not local to the area!) Janet's kind, calming, and supportive style was the perfect fit for us. She helped us shape the ceremony to make it personally meaningful and to incorporate our families in it (distant as they had to be). Highest possible recommendation. Janet is all of the things I cited in my review title-- thoughtful, professional, personable, flexible, and so kind!
