    Absolutely Amazing to Work With!

    Working with Jan Wise was the best decision I made when planning our wedding. When we first started out she set meetings with all of our possible vendors which ultimately led to us having the most fabulous team on our actual wedding day. As the wedding got closer she was on top of timelines, our payments due, proofreading everything, and consistently brought things to my attention that I would have never even thought of. About two weeks before our wedding I sent her a long rambling email and Jan responded calmly and reassured me everything I asked about she had under control and that’s exactly what she was there for.
    Our actual wedding day was a dream come true and I know it’s because of Jan. I was worried about the venue set up and she assured that it not only met our expectations but exceeded them. My husband and I were exactly on time and where we needed to be, thank you to Jan’s timeline. If there were any snags I was unaware because handled them perfectly.
    Even after the wedding she followed up with things that had been left behind, including a few precious family heirlooms that meant a lot to get back.
    If given the choice I would absolutely work with Jan and Going to the Chapel again, and I highly recommend you hire her. All of your wedding needs and worries will be taken care of.

    Going to the Chapel...'s reply:

    Thank you for the glowing words, Tori. It was a pleasure to assist you in having everything perfectly planned and executed for you wedding. I thank you and Nico for your service and hope our paths cross again.

    Warm regards,

    Life saver

    If you are hesitant about hiring a wedding planner, don’t be. The extra “cost” is well worth the stress that comes with planning a wedding. My husband and I both were out of state and Jan gave me piece of mind every time I called her. I had some unexpected family health issues come up right before my wedding and Jan completely rearranged appointments and worked with vendors to help make my wedding day very special. She is very organized and thorough. Not to mention she is so sweet but stern when she needs to be. YOU WILL NOT REGRET JAN WISE
