Aside from saying yes to my husband's proposal, hiring Jan was the best decision I made in the wedding planning process! From the moment my sister and I met Jan (who was kind enough to come meet me in Manhattan close to work), we instantly clicked and I felt as though I had known her forever. Throughout my process, Jan was there to answer a million random questions I had, to keep track of my vendor contracts and payments, to make sure I had taken care of little details I would have never thought of. We were married at a very DIY heavy venue and I had a million ideas about how I wanted to personalize it. Jan was willing to do all of the tasks that made our wedding and venue so personal, including climbing a ladder to hang bunting in our tent! She (along with her fabulous sister, Jackie) set up everything on the morning of the wedding while I was getting ready and enjoying downtime with my girls. I was completely blown away when I saw everything done, it was beyond our dreams. Jan packed everything up at the end of the night so we didn't to worry about cleaning up the next day.
Jan is smart, professional, organized, detail-oriented and, most importantly, a great friend. She will take the time to learn your wedding vision so well that she can make decisions for you on the day of, so you can just sit back and relax! Trust me, you need Jan!

Jan was amazing and I would highly recommend her for any wedding. Small or large.
I met with a few coordinators before I chose Something Social, and so happy I did!
Jan did everything from helping the photographer with lighting, fixing my heel tip when it broke within 5 min, running to store to get medicine for a guest with an allergy reaction and most importantly checking everything to make sure all flowers,escort cards, programs, etc were set up.
She was there at the hotel to make sure everything was running on time, and then headed over to the venue to make sure all was perfect!
Jan is great at what she does and will work with you to make your day special and as stress free as possible! Highly, highly recommend!

Jan was by far well beyond what I expected in a wedding planner. She sent me emails to keep me on track with my planning, was extremely quick to respond to emails and most importantly always put my opinion first. Prior to the wedding, she asked all the right questions and planned for things I wouldn't have even thought about. She was extremely calm and did a fantastic job keeping me calm and that was all before the actual wedding day.
On my wedding day, I fell behind schedule and Jan made sure things ran so smoothly that it went unnoticed. Whenever I needed something, she was right there to make sure whatever I needed got done. At the end of the night, my husband had hired a rolls royce for our sparkler exit and it arrived 25 minutes late. I had no idea about this issue and all that went in to making sure that this didn't ruin the night. Jan was on top of it and I found out 2 minutes before the car arrived at which point it was no longer an issue. She was on top of everything and the night went off without a hitch, as far as I knew. Any and all unexpected issues, Jan made sure to clear up and fix.
A huge thank you to Jan for making my wedding night perfect =)
Brides: I am a crazy overplanner and a control freak, yet the day of my wedding I was able to let the reins go and had no problem because Jan was making sure everything was being done the way I wanted. Do yourselves a favor and hire Something Social for your wedding.

Jan is a great wedding planner! She was the first one we met with, and we pretty much hired her on the spot without meeting anyone else. Her passion, friendliness, and professionalism impressed us right away. Jan kept us organized, was so attentive with every detail, helped negotiate vendor contracts, kept us on track with all wedding tasks, and is also creative. She went above and beyond with our wedding! She even made our cute table numbers! Everything ran smoothly the day of and the year of planning was easy because of her! She is someone who truly cares for her clients and really makes a connection with the bride and groom! Jan is not only a wedding planner but a friend too! She will be there for all the wedding drama and will listen to you complain, cry, scream because she cares! I highly recommend her for any type of event especially weddings! You will not be disappointed!

Something Social is something special! Jan Stephens and team were so great to work with and we would highly recommend them!
We did a lot of the planning ourselves, but were looking for someone to help out along the way, make recommendations, take care of all of the vendor coordination and then take charge day of. Jan and her team exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with our choice!
From the moment we met Jan, we connected. She is personable, enthusiastic and professional. She and her team had so many great recommendations, from the smallest details to choosing our wedding vendors (Florist and Officiant - both of whom exceeded our expectations as well) as well as executing everything on our wedding day. They even took care of making sure we didn't leave anything behind at the venue and getting everything to us the next morning. We didn't have to worry about a thing. The day was seamless and we couldn't have done it with them!
We would absolutely recommend them!

I would highly recommend Something Social to any bride and groom. Jan is amazing and great to work with. We hired her on Oct 28th and by Nov 11th she found the prefect wedding venue for us. She knew exactly what we were looking for. Jan can defiantly envision anything you want and will do everything to make that vision come true, even work through a hurricane!!!
Jan is also extremely professional and is very prompt at responding to emails and any questions we had. I highly recommend Jan!!
Thank you Jan for all of your hardwork!!

Hiring a wedding planner was the best move we made. Something Social kept us on plan and relaxed leading up to and the day of the wedding, now that's saying something special! We would highly recommend Something Social to anyone planning a wedding or special event. While we did all of our major planning, Jan and team came to our tastings, helped with final execution and brought all of the important details together so everything ran smoothly and efficiently. There was no task that went un-done, all with a can-do attitude.
Jan was incredibly professional and worked great with both myself and my now husband. Something Social, not a nice to have, a MUST HAVE!
Any questions, we're happy to be a reference for you to feel comfortable in making a decision to hire Something Social.
