Thank you PTCP for Our Perfect Day!!

If for some reason you are on the fence about your wedding planner, hire Janet. Besides marrying my husband, this was the number one best decision I have truly ever made. I had a very long engagement, and Janet was with me every step of the way. In the beginning, she recommended vendors, took the time to get to know my husband and me so she could help make our day unique to us and what we like, and helped steer me in a cohesive design direction while staying within my budget.

As the wedding got closer, somehow, she just got better and more helpful. Janet spent hours with me explaining/brainstorming how to execute all the little things I wanted to do and I knew with her there on the wedding day everything would be taken care of. She truly gives you peace of mind to enjoy your wedding day and not spend one second worrying about executing everything that goes into it. Janet was extremely organized, responsive, and all-around just a real gift to get to know and spend this time with.

A really fun surprise I got on my wedding morning from PTCP was a bridal stylist! I cannot tell you how helpful it was to have the stylist, Risa, there for everything we could possibly need. My family and friends ADORED Risa and she did everything from steaming dresses, to sewing my mom's dress, fixing my hair for me, and giving me a last-minute undergarment to keep from literally flashing my guests. On top of being just an incredible resource for all those little things you don't think you'll need but actually do, Risa was just a ball of happiness and positivity to have around.

On that note, the entire PTCP team was a JOY to share my wedding day with! Janet buzzes around and keeps everything flowing smoothly and everyone on track, but is also there for any support you could possibly need as a bride. I am truly so thankful this team was a part of my wedding day, and I know the day was infinitely better because they were there. Thank you Janet, Nicole, and Risa for everything you did for us, there are no words to tell you how grateful we are for your hard work and kindness as our wedding planner, coordinators, and stylist.

Put Janet/Pop the Cork at the Top of Your List!

Without a doubt, the most important piece of our wedding planning was hiring Janet! She was a delight to work with, the ultimate professional, creative, completely thorough, and brought added value to every transaction. She was always available and a tremendous help before the wedding and the "day of" - we couldn't have done it without her. Make your first task in planning your wedding - to hire the best there is - and it is Janet!

Greatest Planner Ever!

Janet and her team at pop the cork production were worth every penny!! From day one Janet was on top of every detail for our big day. She was so organized and had so many connections to help us pick the best possible vendors for our big day. Every person she recommended we were extremely happy with. She was happy to meet with us as much as we wanted during the year leading up to the wedding and was always able to quickly put our minds at ease when concerns popped up. Janet was worth every penny before wedding day even came but wedding day itself was the icing on the cake. Her and her multi person team got literally every detail of our wedding day right. We spent so much time planning and it meant so much to have our vision executed perfectly by Janet and her team. I would recommend Janet to anyone!

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!

If you're looking for a wedding planner in the Phoenix area, look no further than Pop the Cork. 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. She returns calls and messages promptly. 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.
