    Absolute perfection from start to finish

    Pop the Cork Co made my wedding absolutely perfect- the planning process was so smooth, always helping with suggestions in areas I was struggling to find vendors and then communicating with those vendors- this was especially challenging as I had a NYE wedding. She completely brought my vision to life- honestly even better than I could have ever done it myself.

    I am a type A planner- try to think of possible issues before they even happen. However, even I was completely thrown off guard with the biggest WRENCH thrown at our special day---- which was the Southwest airline meltdown of epic fashion the week between Christmas and NYE. Janet and company helped us deal with this, which is something we could have never expected. This meant last minute cancelled guests (our wedding was destination so everyone was flying). Janet and her team took it in stride and went and had certain rentals ready to be refunded and even contacted our venue and even they were willing to also not charge for missing guests meals. After a few days, the airline opened rebooking and those cancelled guests were then no longer cancelled- meaning we needed to not have the rentals or meals canceled- again, Janet handled everything and completely alleviated any of this stress on our end.

    In the end- we had our perfect day and truly having Pop the Cork working HARD behind the scenes during all of the mass chaos the week of and the months leading up to it- made it so much more special.

    This team made everything so seamless, magical and executed everything beyond what I could have ever expected. I can not recommend their services enough. Truly feel it was the most important thing we invested in for our wedding.

    Janet was instrumental in the success of our event!

    Janet was incredible when it came to making sure the flow of our event was perfect from start to finish. From the initial meeting , to communicating with vendors, to the final event timeline, Janet was extremely detail-oriented and truly understood our vision. She was extremely accommodating to our needs on the day of the wedding, without adding any additional stress due to her easygoing personality. She handled communications with vendors head-on and with no bs. Thank you Janet for making our day extra special! -Amy&Julian

In case you haven't guessed it already, I love Champagne and I love celebrating! Just about any excuse will do for me! Hence, came the name of my wedding and event planning business.

The most valuable thing in my life is family and celebrations are all about bringing family together! In my book, 'family' isn't just the loved ones who raised you. It includes everyone that you choose to do the journey of life with, your village. And it certainly takes a village to plan a once in a lifetime celebration! I want to be a part of your village!

I am in the business of making people happy and I love what I get to do for a living. Let's connect, create and celebrate these moments together! I can't wait to help you pop the cork with style, grace and peace of mind!

Janet is meticulous about every detail, and knows what's current and beautiful, all while keeping with a bride'svision and within her budget. Janet is affable and a great communicator.

Just this past year, she was a bride herself, so she can easily understand the concerns brides have, and knows what is truly important in order to make someone's wedding day special, perfect and memorable. I highly recommend Pop the Cork!

I had the opportunity to partner with Janet Finden for a clients milestone birthday party. The first thing that comes to my mind is impressive and very hard working. Janet came to this event with the highest of standards and the greatest of expectations for her client. And she delivered with such amazing results in the end. She transformed the clients home to a birthday extravaganza with catering stations and band and much more. The client was thrilled and working along side someone who is a great visionary that is also so organized, calm as well as fun to be around. For me as the floral vendor it was a pleasure. I look forward to many other opportunities to work along side such a professional planner.
