Janelle was my wedding fairy godmother! She was beyond organized and made my wedding day run so smooth! She was so helpful every step of the way. She set everything up to beyond my standards and did everything she could to make the day stress free and perfect. My day would not have been the same without her. I would recommend her to any bride!Aug 1, 2018
I hired Janelle to be my day of coordinator and have to say it was the best money I ever spent! You don't really realize all of the things that need to be set up the day of...AND you have to get ready as well. Janelle was fantastic and SUPER organized. Although I hired her for the Day, she made sure to contact all of my vendors a couple weeks before the wedding, created a color-coded timeline outlining the events of our wedding, made sure the entire day ran smoothly, and she even ran our rehearsal. If you are thinking about hiring Janelle, DO IT! She makes sure everyone is where they need to be when they need to be there and allows you to enjoy the day you have worked so hard to plan. OH! She also has an emergency kit that she brings with her with just about anything you might need that day...which my bridesmaids and I definitely took advantage of :-)Jul 1, 2015Verified

Hi Kathy! Thank you for the five-star review. I am taking the text from another website you reviewed me on and putting it here as well. I enjoyed every minute of working with you on the wedding!! "Janelle was perfect. We were hesitant in hiring a planner, thinking we could do it on our own. Boy are we glad that we chose to hire Janelle. She gave us the time to enjoy the wedding and not worry about anything. We hired her for the day of only package, but we got so much more. Her assistant Lauren was also helpful and pleasant. They both kept everything on time and everyone calm and where they needed to be. We would hire her again for any event we had. Thanks, Janelle."
We had a wonderful experience with Janelle and Ally Event Planning! Our wedding venue was pretty DIY, so we had to bring in lots of different vendors and supplies and only had access to the space on the day of. Overwhelmed with how we would get everything set up and coordinated, we found Janelle on Thumbtack. Hiring her was probably the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. Janelle was organized, had great communication throughout the process, and put us completely at ease. She took a lot of care to ensure that our vision of the wedding was carried out and it absolutely was. Our venue looked gorgeous and the day flowed perfectly. Janelle was a reassuring presence throughout the wedding and I can't imagine how we would have managed without her. I cannot recommend her enough.Oct 30, 2016Verified
Hiring Janelle was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. She was not only thorough and organized, she was on top of everything without being bossy or overbearing. She was completely in control of everything starting two weeks out and allowed me to truly relax and enjoy the wedding rather than running around the whole month prior. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was working with Janelle and everyone at Ally Event Planning. Our experience was wonderful and our day was executed PERFECTLY. All the details I never even thought to think about were addressed and the day went off without a hitch!Jul 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The pricing system isn't complicated, but it is tailored to each client. Please contact me and we can discuss what you want, what you need, and how Ally Event Planning can help.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I received my certification through The Bridal Society. Through this organization, not only do I have access to a nationwide network of planners, I have the ability to enhance my education through online courses.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After planning my own wedding, I didn't stop researching trends, looking for deals or helping friends with their weddings. I love weddings. And as an educator, I have an innate love of organization (very helpful in this business).
