The best in the business
If you're reading this review looking for a world-class planner, you should just stop now and hire Janice and the Bellwether team. Seriously. After being put in touch by a friend, my now-husband (!!) and I worked with Janice to plan our wedding in DC while we were living abroad in London. From our first call with her in Dec '18 to our wedding day in Nov '19, Janice was indispensable. She helped us both with advance planning/vendor selection as well as week/day-of coordination. Because we were only able to be in DC once or twice before the wedding itself, we trusted Janice to guide us on everything from picking a venue (which we did sight unseen) to suggesting all the local vendors. We have zero regrets on any of it. The vendors that she suggested were incredible (and many were local women-owned small businesses) and such a pleasure to get to know. Janice also helped us understand overall planning timelines, how to make our budget stretch for the things we cared the most about, coordinated with vendors the week-of and day-of, and was a superstar running our rehearsal and day-of. Our wedding day was stress-free, due in large part to Janice's organization, quick response times, attention to detail, ability to connect with and navigate complex families, and complete professionalism. Her day-of assistant was also amazing. Our only regret is that now it's over and we don't get to hang out with Janice all the time anymore!Sent on 01/13/2020

Janice and her team took care of us from beginning to end and were an indispensable part of our successful wedding weekend for 275 guests. She was always accessible; had a huge, collaborative vendor network to tap into; and generally made everything easy for us. Highly recommend!Sent on 04/18/2020

We felt in the best of hands on our special day with Janice as our Wedding Coordinator. She was on top of every last detail, making sure all of the moving parts ran smoothly. Her responsiveness and professionalism are unmatched. Our guests could not stop raving about the organization and continuity of the whole day. All of this is thanks to Janice! She truly is the best in the business and we cannot recommend her enough!Sent on 01/10/2020
