What can I say about Jan McBee?... On a scale of 1-10, she is an 11!!! We hired Jan very late in the game-- only about a month before our wedding. We thought we could get away without a day-of coordinator, but as the day got closer and closer, we realized just how necessary she was! So with one short month to plan, she jumped right in and helped us in planning and thinking about all the details that we probably would have never thought about. She helped us out by meeting at times and places that were convenient for us. She was prompt in all of her responses be it by email, text, phone, etc.. She jumped on conference calls with me and my venue to work out some last minute kinks. So-- all of this, not to mention, the day of--- It is because of Jan that our day ran as smoothly as it did. She knows what she is doing, she runs things with grace, is polite, calming to the bridal party, and gets things done! Above all, she is just a great person! I could tell she sincerely cares about the couples she works with and loves what she does. Her kind words to my husband and I the night before our wedding meant the world to us! Jan, we loved working with you and I would recommend you to anyone!!!!! Thank you!!!

Jan was wonderful! Since the first time I spoke to her on the phone I knew she was the perfect wedding planner for me, she was able to turn into reality everything that I had envisioned for my wedding... on our first meeting she had pictures and ideas from our previous conversation. I was extremely impressed of her professionalism and responsiveness... and the day off she mad sure everything would go as planned. All I can say is I highly recommend Jan, honestly for the price and services I doubt it gets better than her... My wedding was perfection and I thank her for that!

Jan was an absolutely joy to work with. Initially, I didn't know what direction I wanted to take, but she helped envision exactly what I wanted and helped make it come true. She's extremely creative and such a visionary. I set specific timelines for planning my wedding within 6 months, and she helped me achieve everyone with minimal to no stress. Jan is very flexible and dependable. If you need to make any changes, she goes above and beyond to accommodate. She answered every question I had, thoroughly. Her passion for this business simply shines through her smile and personality in a way I've never seen before. She really cares about her clients and their needs. If you need to talk about anything, whether it be about your wedding or not, she's there to listen, and that's a rare gift for those brides who are stressed during the planning process. Several people told me that I was one of the calmest brides they've seen. Although I'm fairly mild mannered, I owe a lot of my calmness to Jan. Because of her professionalism, knowledge of the wedding industry AND taking time to get to really know me, I had absolutely NO worries on my wedding day. I knew I was in good hands. I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day. Everything and everyone was beautiful, and we had so much fun! I owe it all to Jan. She's the best!!

Jan Hill McBee of La Fete Wedding and Events was the best wedding planner I could ever ask for. Most brides have stories of the things that went wrong on their special day but my day was flawless thanks to my wedding planner. From the beginning she had a vision based off our initial conversation and was able to make it a reality. She is very well connected so anything that I wanted for that day was taken care of by one phone call and a good price. She worked with my budget as well as my indecisiveness and non-creativity and created a day that I could not dream of. Because of Jan I was able to have a care and stress free wedding day and was able to truly enjoy every minute of it knowing I had her in my corner.

She Had Us At Hello. Jarod and I met Jan McBee through a mutual friend of ours and we are so grateful for that introduction. From the first meeting, we knew that she would be the one to guide us through one of the most precious moments in our lives. Jan's beautiful personality and enthusiasm for her work let us know that we were going to see the wedding of our dreams become a reality. Jan set us up with some of the most outstanding vendors! From the awesome photographer, to the budget friendly linen, to the most delicious cake we have ever tasted, she made it happen! She walked with us through this one year journey and went above and beyond the call of duty. She was always available when we needed her and provided guidance to a young bride and groom when times were not so pleasant. Jan not only handled business but she was able to build a personal relationship with us, something not everyone is capable of doing. Needless to say, our wedding was beyond what our imaginations could have ever fathomed and we are still getting calls about what a great time everyone had, I mean our guest didn't want the day to end! We fell in love with Jan and look forward to working with her in the future, she has become part of our family!

Jan is a great planner to work with. She eased me through my numerous panic attacks that occured during the planning process. She was very receptive and open minded to my vision for the wedding and even helped to fill in the gaps. I must have changed my mind a thousand times and Jan was patient with me everytime :-). She kept in touch with us on a weekly to daily basis and advised us on the tasks that needed to be done by certain dates. The wedding day was orchestrated very well and went off without a hitch. What we are pleased the most about Jan is that once we told her what our budget was for the entire wedding, she worked with the vendors to make sure we stayed within those guidelines and even recommended great alternatives when we were peeking over our limit. It was a pleasure working with her!

Jan was wonderful to work with and really helped to pull together the final details of my destination wedding. It was very challenging to work with with the vendors in a different location, she was very resourceful and found the best vendors to use. She also gave some great ideas and really helped to make sure our day was our perfect vision!

Jan was absolutely wonderful to work with! Early on, she talked with my husband and I about our vision for the wedding, and helped us achieve all those dreams while sticking close to our budget. I'm honestly amazed at how things came together so perfectly and I know we couldn't have done it without Jan. Through the process, Jan became a trusted advisor and friend, and I'd recommend her services to any bride & groom.

Wedding planning was a nightmare before we found Jan, and she turned it into the best day of our life! She was full of creative ideas that made our wedding "our own". Every vendor she found us was top notch. For what we paid for her services, we feel like she saved us 3x that. She was always available when we needed her, and always made us feel confident with every decision. The day of the wedding went problem-free and stress-free. All of our guests had so much fun, and we've already had several ask for her number for their wedding planning. My husband and I (along with family and wedding party) agree that hiring Jan was the best decision we made.
