Hello all I would like to introduce you to Janel Keen, one of the best wedding planners this side of heaven!!!!! I must admit I am a weddingholic ( I'm probably obsessed). I love everything about weddings and from my pre-teen years I have always been planning my wedding day. When my fiance and I decided to have our wedding in Virginia Beach to accommodate his elderly family members I knew that I was making a big move by having a destination wedding. I immediately became very anxious because I know everything about weddings in NY, but nothing about weddings in VA. I searched wedding wire to no avail and had a phone conference with almost every wedding planner in the Hampton Roads area. Then finally I scrolled upon Vivid Expressions. As soon as I called Janel, and expressed my dreams she immediately made them into reality!!!!! From start to finish she was professional, friendly, and very loving. As my wedding party grew from 250 to 380 people Janel was definitely challenged, but it was certainly not beyond anything she couldn't handle! She was well organized and helped me to know that once I place my trust in her everything will be alright. And indeed it was. Janel, her family, and the staff at Vivid Expression are exceptional!!!!!!!! I hope that if you are looking for the best in wedding planning that you look no further, because this team will make your dreams come true!

Janel was indeed a pleasure to work with. From our initial meeting, she quickly understood my style and what I was looking for. Throughout the process, she created designs that captured the look and feel to a tee. Day of execution was even more outstanding. Janel provided that extra special touch to my day, and I could not ask for anything more.

We received a recommendation from our wedding planner about Janel's services. After hearing how Janel comes up with ideas and how she came up with designs/mocks, we thought her services were a perfect fit to what my husband and I wanted. We had a asian/japanese/cherry blossom theme and everything came out beautifully.

After speaking with her about various topics such as colors, the types of flowers, the overall design and budget, Janel came up with a few concepts. She showed us hand-drawn images of my bouqet, the groom's boutonniere, the look of the church alter, and the look of the reception area. She envisioned exactly what we had in mind. She even included the cherry blossom tree lighting design that Blue Steel provided for us. It was glorious.

Working with Janel was great. She is a fantastic designer and artist. I highly recommend her services.

Janel is very creative and does beautiful work. I feel that I did not use as much of her creative artistry and talent as I should have. But that's what makes her great. She adjusts to the needs of the bride. I basically wanted someone to set up the day of and make sure everything runs smoothly. Most of our guests were from out of town and it was perfect that i did not have anything to worry about before and during the wedding.

Janel was a true asset to our wedding. She was more than just a planner for us since we got married out of state. Thanks to her we were able to have the wedding of our dreams with a dream team of vendors to help. Her unique ability to draw out ideas and concepts and then bring them to life is amazing. Our guest were just amazed as we were. While some along the way criticized our need to have a planner, I can say without a doubt we don't have a single regret about utilizing Vivid Expressions for our wedding planning, floral, and decor needs.

4.5/5.0
Janel is a one of a kind person! She's a very knowledgeable and detailed oriented business woman. She made sure I was taken care of and she made me feel so special on my big day. After all the trials and tribulations she had my back, when my back was against the wall and in tears she prayed with me and for me. She did things that she shouldn't have.. But this show the type of professional she is. Thanks Janel for making my "big day" about me and the love of my life. Thank u from the bottom of my heart! I love and appreciated all the time and effort you put into making our day so special and unique. Thanks girl!
