Talk about pro – Janeen was the utmost of professionals as our wedding coordinator. As first timers at our wedding, she patiently walked us through all the steps. Because we took a DIY wedding approach, we had several vendors, some of which were new to the venue. Janeen made sure they knew the drill. Even though we had a rain plan, she filled a few decorative gaps we’d left with the change in plans. Amazingly, she was never rushed. I think her calm and composed approach was contagious. Most importantly we felt Janeen genuinely listened to us and helped us organize the wedding we wanted. Because of Janeen’s experience, guidance, patience and confidence, we were able to enjoy the memorable day and focus on what brought together so many cherished friends and family. She went above and beyond. We can’t recommend Janeen enough.
Janeen and her staff were the number one reason why everyone at my wedding said it was the best a they have ever attended! My wedding was not an easy space as it was a Raw venue space with 188 people attending It was Janeen’s organization, attention to detail, direction, creativity and above All patience made it perfect! I could not thank parties N all enough for making the wedding of my dreams! I will refer her to everyone I know and god willing use her for a Baby Shower! Let me add her availability to me from day one was amazing via text, email, phone anything at anytime!
Janeen and her team went above and beyond. We had only expected the staff to show up and follow instructions, but Janeen and her team stepped up and took charge of making the day flow correctly. If it hadn't been for Janeen, my husband and I would have been spending the day trying to fix things that weren't correct (such as fixing small mistakes from the caterer). The day went so smoothly, and I know that there are probably a million things that happened that Janeen just took care of so that we were never even aware. This meant we were able to just focus on our guests and on having the most amazing day ever. This could not have been the case without Parties N All!!! Janeen also brought a few decorations/odds and ends that we hadn't thought of (such as boxes to stage the food.) Without Janeen, everything would have looked fine but kind of blah, but with Janeen's eye and little tricks she made everything pop, and look so much more professional and fancy!! It really is the little details that can make or break presentation, and Janeen knew how to make everything just that much more perfect. On top of everything, everyone on her team was so friendly and warm. Her husband ran the bar and gave us so much of his time in advance instructing us how to buy the right ingredients and amounts. Even how he set up the bar looked great, which was a detail we had never even considered. All in all, we could not recommend Janeen and her team enough! You will be very happy if you have her helping you make your day perfect :)
So much love, energy, time, and stress does into planning a wedding and we could not have done it all without Janeen Barnes! Janeen was our event coordinator for our wedding in 12/2017 and we hired event staff through Events by Parties N All and we could not have been happier! Janeen was attentive, caring, and always available throughout the planning process and when it came to the day of, it all went smoothly with her help. No matter how much you plan, there are always challenges and I truly believe that the adventure does not begin until things go wrong, but with Janeen and her team at our side, the adventure was as magical and fun as we could have imagined. Highest recommendation that we could give!
Janeen and her team did a fantastic job taking care of every single detail leading up to, and the day of our wedding. Janeen thought of absolutely everything and is a total pro. Planning a wedding is incredibly stressful and the week leading up to the big day is stressful x 100--Janeen took a huge weight off my shoulders by taking care of following up with each of our vendors, making sure our All Seated chart was complete, and getting everything set up and broken down the day of. She even made me a plate of food and kept the water coming so I wasn't a total mess the next day! 10 out of 10, would absolutely recommend Parties N' All for all of your events.
Do not work with this company! Hiring Janeen was a huge, huge regret. We would've been happier paying her to just stay away from our wedding. 2 big complaints: (1) 5 days before our wedding, she jacked up her initial quote by by more than 50% and then threatened to abandon us without staff if we refused to pay her. (We'd already paid a deposit, so we couldn't really fire her at that point.) And literally nothing had changed about our wedding plans between her initial quote and the sudden and last-minute price hike. (2) She did a terrible job at the wedding. Our friends and family ended up filling in for all the things Janeen and her staff were supposed to do. The appetizers came out 90 minutes late (right as dinner was served), she forgot to play the music, she forgot to light the candles, etc. It would have been so much easier to just not have her there. With the price hike hostage situation, she betrayed our trust in a big way. Now, after the wedding, we just think she's really bad at her job.
Janeen and her crew were a huge help during our wedding such that on the day of we were totally relaxed and were actually able to enjoy the day and spend time with our guests. She was incredibly helpful in the runup to our wedding and helping coordinate what turned out to be a very non traditional type of event with a lot of moving parts. We did an outside wedding in a raw space. This turned out to be just her specialty - she helped design the table arrangements, lights, helped us figure out how much rentals we needed. She also recommended vendors that turned out to be way less $$ than we were originally going to go with. Very happy we we went with her and feel it was money well spent.
Janeen was absolutely amazing. She was my day of coordinator for my wedding 9/23/17, but was so much more involved than just day of. She came to both my ceremony location and reception venue to walk through everything 2 weeks before. The day of the wedding there was a birthday party set up in my ceremony venue, and Janeen handled it immediately so my guests never knew. The day of Janeen was somehow EVERYWHERE! She set up a lemonade stand for the ceremony and also set up the reception. She made my day so seamless and beautiful and I can't recommend her enough!
Janeen is so awesome to work with! My wedding was unbelievably gorgeous. I am tearing up just writing this review. If your looking for someone who pays great attention to detail, then Janeen is your girl! You will not be disappointed!
Janeen was SO great throughout the whole process of our wedding. Although I only paid for a week before the event communication she helped me throughout the entire process answering any questions I had and talking me through the planning process. For the actual day of, she executed everything beautifully! She made sure the timeline ran smoothly and all my decor was set up exactly how I envisioned it. It was amazing! I would highly recommend to anyone!!
Janeen and her team did a phenomenal job! Beginning with our early conversations, Janeen provided invaluable insight which helped me and my fiance, as we didn't have a wedding planner. Day of the wedding, I didn't worry about anything from start to finish, it was all taken care of by Janeen's professional and amazing team. Having the wedding in a raw space, The Green Building, with many moving parts and outside vendors seemed difficult when we started our planning, but after meeting Janeen our worries disappeared and the whole process was seamless. I can't recommend Parties N' All enough! Lastly, our guests loved the drinks made by Rich -- he makes the best dirty martini in Manhattan. Thanks for everything!!
I am here to verify every review I read about Janeen, and her staff from Parties N’ All. She truly lives up to her name. If you made it to this page, do not hesitate, just book her and her team. It’ll be the first of many good decision you made in the planning process. My fiance and I were hooked from the moment we spoke to her on the phone. Out of all the people who assisted me, I trusted her opinion the most. She really executed my vision for my DIY wedding. My wedding came out better than expected. She even jazzed up my decor layout. I honestly rested easy because I trusted her and her team. You will too, if you have her as your wedding planner or wedding coordinator. If you are having a wedding at any of the BK venues, I highly recommend you have her on your side. She is experienced in the space, and you will have a seamless wedding that you can enjoy.
Our venue was a raw space that required us bringing in all vendors and supplies. On top of that, we had a food truck wedding with drop off catering for our cocktail hour. Parties N' All saved the day and made our DIY wedding feel seamless and as if we had a full catering service. They were able to put my VERY particular vision together for the table settings, saved our ceremony chairs from the random 5 minute rain shower, and even provided extra bussing trays and whatnot (all the stuff I forgot!) at no extra charge. I strongly recommend these guys! Great communication, professional, quick and flawless! Thank you so much Parties N' All!
Janeen was our day-of Wedding Coordinator for our wedding on 7/1/17 in a Brooklyn restaurant. She was instrumental in keeping a tight timeline, making sure that all things ran smoothly and making sure that everyone was always happy, even our pup Marcy. We only had a couple of hours to get into the restaurant before ceremony start time and Janeen made sure that all decoration was set up in time, even with storms rolling in and out, threatening our outdoor ceremony. I truly did not have to worry about anything that day. Janeen took care of everything - even mother nature! Highly recommend Parties N' All.
I wish there were more stars to give to Janeen and her staff at Parties N'All. I highly recommend them for your next party or event. Right from the start, Janeen put me at ease with her professionalism, expertise and great communication style. Her staff is lovely and their charming personalities added to our wedding event, making all our guests feel at ease. Janeen has a wonderful design sense, which gave the venue a special touch. My husband and I had a great time because we were in such good hands. It was the best party we ever hosted. Thank you Parties N'All.
There are so many things I can say about Janeen & Events by Parties N' All! I was literally 2 months away from my wedding and had sooooo many things to still put in place for our big day! I had a consulting call with Janeen and by the end of the call, my mind was made up that she was hired!!! Literally, she completed task for me soooo quickly! She made me feel so comfortable letting go of my vision and trusting that she was going to deliver it the way I envisioned! SHE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT I EXPECTED!!!! I didn't have a chance to see the venue all set up before walking down the aisle, as soon as I walked in, my breath was taken away by how how effortlessly beautiful the room was and how efficient the timeline went. Janeen, you are a amazing and I hope to hire you for other events in the future. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
I couldn’t recommend Events by Parties N’ All more highly! It is no exaggeration to say that Janeen made our wedding possible. We had lots of big ideas and dreams (a ceremony in the round, catering from a restaurant, a killer band, lots of candles - all in a totally raw space in five months) and no idea how to execute them. Janeen and her staff made all of this and more possible. We called her a lot and she was always available to us. She told us exactly what it would take to make our dreams come true - even when it wasn’t always what we wanted to hear – and then made it happen. She was incredibly patient with all of our big demands and was just as detail obsessed as we are. She helped us think of everything and was on top of every detail, dollar, and timeline. Whenever we hit a dead end, Janeen was there with the solution. And whenever we were stressed out, she swooped in to sooth us. All of this for way less money than any of the other coordinators we spoke with - although I can’t imagine getting as much personalized attention from anyone else. Our guests keep telling us how incredible and attentive the staff were and how seamlessly everything was executed. And best of all, I had no stress on the day of the wedding and that’s totally thanks to the Events by Parties N’ All team. Janeen, Rich, and their staff went totally above and beyond to make sure that the entire planning process and the wedding were smooth, easy, happy, and beautiful. Hire them!
We decided to do our wedding by ourselves and we found out we needed more help than we expected, so Janeen and her staff helped us to make our dreams come true! She worked with us, got to know our style and how we wanted our wedding to be. On the day I was amazed by how it came out much better than I could imagine. Very professional and personal at the same time.
I was at a complete loss on how to have a large NYC wedding until I met Janeen. She was amazing and organized and gave me so much fantastic advice. Her team was fantastic, her rates affordable and she treated me and my guests like her own family. Call her now if you are trying to figure out what to do - she will help!
Janeen was a complete asset from start to finish; even though we signed her on only for day-of coordination (as opposed to full-blown planning services), she offered pointers and advice throughout the process! As is perhaps a typical path with wedding planning, I was originally a bit demoralized by the cost of everything adding up, especially in our raw venue. Thinking that I might be able to do it all myself, I contacted Parties N' All to inquire just about their staffing services. Janeen quickly got back to me with her staffing capabilities (which we also took advantage of, and were fantastic) but also noted that she provides day-of coordination services. Her prices were fantastic, less than other DOCs I'd spoken with, and included much more (unlimited texting/calls before the wedding, not just in the month leading up, etc.). And I took advantage of it; we had a number of different vendors delivering and picking up on the day of the wedding, so we really gave Janeen a full plate! In addition, Janeen, having done this a ton, has accumulated equipment and display items that she graciously provided and which really stepped up the presentation of our cocktail hour snacks, desserts, and bar (the bar rental package was separate but SO worth it)! I can't say enough great things about Janeen, and this review already feels inadequate, but by way of example, two friends are getting married soon in a raw space in New York, and they've already signed on Janeen and Parties N' All after our recommendation! Thank you so much, Janeen, Rich (her husband, our main bartender), and the whole team!!
Events by Parties N' All did not disappoint! Not only did our day run smooth but our friends and family were taken care of as well! I highly recommend Janeen to help coordinate any event! From our rehersal dinner to picking up and delivering all our details to ensuring my vision was executed. She truly is a professional and knows how to keep any bride at easy under pressure. Thank you!
Professional, Awesome & Attentive are just a few words I could use to describe my experience with Events by Parties N' All.
Let me just start by saying that if you have found Janeen from Parties N’ All then you are already on your way to the wedding of your dreams. Whether you are having a small backyard party or a large upscale wedding you are crazy to attempt to plan and run your event without Janeen’s expertise. When we first met Janeen we could instantly tell that she is extremely dedicated due to her passion for the work that she does. We gave her probably one of the biggest challenges, by having a large 180-person outdoor wedding at a venue that had MANY impossible restrictions to be worked around. To make things even more difficult, my father suddenly got very ill and had passed away just 10 days before the wedding. Janeen did not hesitate for one second to go above and beyond her agreed upon duties to make sure everything went smoothly. Leading up to the wedding Janeen had no issues answering our million and a half text messages and emails as well as countless phone calls and meetings. She also helped us to think of things we never would have thought of before. She has worked with just about everyone in the wedding industry and can give you tons of honest feedback and unbiased recommendations for all of your vendors. Janeen always provided enough information to us that we always felt comfortable making decisions; she will never push you to sign up for anything that isn’t necessary. She also offers lots of very nice personal touch services such as full bar services, infused water and lemonade service during your ceremony and coffee and tea bars at the end. I would highly recommend ALL of these very reasonably priced add on services, you will NOT be disappointed. Janeen’s real magic shined on the day of our wedding. She and her staff exerted themselves in the hours leading up to the wedding to get everything expertly setup. Without even asking, Janeen brought tons of her personally owned accent pieces. Janeen knows one speed and that is GO!! Whether it was just keeping us on schedule or taking care of small hiccups, she skillfully handled the event and all of her AMAZING staff. We cannot thank her enough for her incredible work ethic and helping us to achieve the wedding of our dreams. It really means a lot when everyone is coming up to you and telling you that this is “the best wedding they have ever been to”. Before Janeen and her staff left for the evening everything was packed up and the grounds were made spotless. Bottom line, her prices are incredibly reasonable compared to the competition, her dedication and passion for the job is above and beyond, and her husband Rich (bar service) and her catering staff are the BEST in the industry. Hire Janeen and be prepared for magic!! See our wedding trailer video at the below link. Thank you Janeen!! https://vimeo.com/179132687
We had an opportunity to work with Janeen and her team. Very organized, easy to work with and extremely professional. Great with communication and very accommodating. We recommend their service to any couple who is looking for a experienced event management team. You will not be disappointed with Events by Parties N All.
Obviously, planning a wedding is a stressful time... there is so much to think about and keep track of, and keeping within a budget just further complicates things. For our DIY food-truck wedding in Brooklyn, we honestly feel that hiring Janeen and her staff was probably one of the most important things that we did for our big day. Janeen talked us through the day beforehand, was patient with my detail-oriented self, and was able to touch upon things that I definitely would not have thought of otherwise. She is incredibly professional, organized, and clearly has a wealth of experience in the wedding industry. She created a timeline of our wedding day, and was contacting each of our vendors beforehand to make sure everyone was on the same page. On the actual day of our wedding, she kept everything running smoothly from behind the scenes, making our day appear seamless to us and our guests (even when the inevitable bump in the road may present itself). We had a food truck wedding with multiple vendors, and when one of them was not able to heat up their food in the pre-arranged time, she petitioned on our behalf, resulting in the vendor bringing in a separate pizza oven to make pizza as well for our guests (which we hadn't even paid for in the first place). She took the decorations I left and made our venue absolutely beautiful, she helped with organizing cleanup after the wedding, and her entire staff (from her bartenders to her waitstaff) were absolutely stellar. Even now, months after the wedding, we are blown away by the quality of work put forth by Parties N All; we would recommend them highly to anyone, as having Janeen and her staff there allowed us to enjoy our wedding day by taking care of all the details. We honestly do not know how we could have done it without them!
