Harvest Inn: 05.15.21
My husband, Justin and I, hired Janice Twomey as our wedding coordinator the fall of 2019 for a July 2020 wedding. Little did we know that the world would turn dark 6 months later due to the pandemic. As a result, July moved to October 2020; October 2020 moved to May 2021.
Weddings are difficult to plan; a pandemic makes it 100x more difficult given the extra logistics. For us, it was most important we walked away with a wedding where the guests felt safe. We worked very hard with Janice to ensure this happened. Janice went beyond achieving that—she made our dreams come true.
At the very core, Janice has the heart of gold. She is devoted to her clients’ big day. Given the situation of our world today, you need a planner like Janice—a superwoman. Together, we dealt with the pandemic. (I believe fall weddings are in danger of fire season given the lack of rainfall this year; Janice has been in the industry for years and understands what couples need to know when having a fall wedding).
Here are snippets of her dedication:
• Vendor Search: Janice has her selected top vendors. I believe all 3 of our vendors—Sabine Scherer Photography, Soulflower Floral Designs and Rion Designs were all on her list. When I had issues finding a floral designer, I remember fondly Janice texting me after her yoga class (PRE-COVID) brimming with ideas to help me find one I was truly happy with.
• Contract Review: Janice helped review our contracts prior to signing. She helped us with our contract to hold the wedding at the Harvest Inn. Throughout the movement of the dates, Janice stayed on top of the venue and all my vendors for not one but two wedding date changes.
• Creativity: Janice thinks on her feet and is brimming with ideas on photography, cocktails, food, and fashion, given her experience working in the luxury hotel and restaurant business. I had a Bridgerton theme for my wedding and she put in all those elements where she could into my day to the point where guests could guess the source of my inspiration.
• Passion: Janice has the greatest love and passion for what she does. Even though she was just our wedding coordinator, she somehow was able to help pick up smore ingredients and decorative flowers for my cocktail arrangements; she drove me around nail salons to help me fix a chipped nail on the same day as my rehearsal dinner; she always asked how I was feeling/doing when I had issues getting into a dress after being in sweats all year long… the list goes on. It’s these little moments that truly show just how much she cares and that she is there for you, through and through.
I would recommend anyone looking for a wedding coordinator/planner to hire Janice Twomey.Sent on 05/20/2021
Rue 29 Napa Valley's reply:You’re the best!! As you and Justin know I adored helping you navigate the twists and turns on the road to your incredible and perfect wedding day. Your positivity and optimism made it all the more enjoyable. I think our yoga practices prepared us well for this last year; breathe deeply, exhale fully and go with the flow. I wish you and Justin and sweet Goji smooth sailing ahead and a lifetime of happiness and cherished memories together. Thank you both! Namaste. 🤍🕊🙏🏼

Great Wedding Planner!
We had the good fortune of working with Janice for our Napa wedding celebration. She supported us, pushed us when needed to make sure we stayed on schedule, and went above and beyond to make sure we stayed on budget. She was responsive, experienced, thoughtful, and made our dream wedding come true despite COVID challenges. She was a pleasure to work with, and we were lucky to be working with her. Would highly recommend without hesitation!Sent on 05/23/2021
Rue 29 Napa Valley's reply:Thank you very much, Justin. I loved working with you and your beautiful wife! You both stayed so positive and optimistic throughout all the delays and postponements. We all learned this past year there are some things we cannot control. That's a tough lesson for a wedding planner, but having clients as kind and thoughtful as the two of you made the process much easier. Your wedding day was absolutely perfect! Good things do come to those who wait. I wish you a lifetime of happiness and cherished memories together. Congrats!

Janice is an ANGEL!
My husband and I got married at Auberge Du Soleil in May of 2021! Auberge listed Janice (Rue 29) on their approved vendor list which is how I first contacted her. I actually sent out a mass email to all of the wedding coordinators/planners on that approved list with a strict budget I wanted to stick to!
Janice happily responded saying that she would be glad to help me! We talked over the phone and I honestly fell in love with her. She's so kind, detail-oriented (she even knew how the moon would be set on the night of our wedding), and of course, she was very professional!
Working with her, especially through COVID was such a dream. She helped us with our day-of coordination (I did 95% of the planning). She took all the plans that I had, made some recommendations about things I would have NEVER thought of on my own, hosted communication with all my vendors, and on the day of, she was honestly a point of calmness and safety for me. Janice is so passionate about what she does, and it honestly makes her so happy to be a part of all of these couples' days... but I didn't realize how important it was for her to be there until the day of. I'll honestly never forget her and how special she made the whole day. Of course there's drama and things that go wrong at every wedding (it's inevitable) but she kept me away from all of it, not to mention handled all of it, and I was entertained to hear a bunch of stories of all the things she managed to fix at the wedding, way after I got back from my honeymoon!
She's the best, honestly, and I couldn't have imagined better. THANK YOU JANICE!Sent on 06/19/2021
