Love Letter....  from a Busness Client

I reached out to Janel in regards to rebranding and defining our company. When she arrived she was very prepared. I am a visual learner and she did not disappoint. I actually got more than what I was expecting. It's easy for a business owner to get caught up in the day to day tasks of running a company. Her creativity really made me look at the way we were doing things and gave amazing insight into better and newer ways to approach certain ideals. I found that having someone get as excited as me about the direction that we're headed really gave me a boost of energy that I didn't even realize I needed! 

Melissa, Rental Business Owner


It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen"


"I had a vision about how I wanted my invitations to look, but just couldn't find what I was looking for, I went to Janel with a unique request to sketch my invitation. I described to her what I was looking for and said for her to take creative freedom to make it come to life. She exceeded my vision and my invites were one of a kind, and I still am getting compliments on how gorgeous they were! I am so thrilled with how they came out. I also wanted a different feel at my venue to reflect the uplighting and elegance that I was looking for. Janel provided the most beautiful chandelier with draping for the ceiling and walls. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. And once again exceeding my vision of how I wanted my reception room to look. The uplighting was exquisite bouncing off of her gorgeously draped swags all over the room. I can't think you enough Janel for making my wedding invites and reception room breath taking! I will cherish my pictures with these in it forever!"

Transformed into our dream"


"We could not have picked a better service than Vivid Expressions LLC. We told a story of how we met and what we wanted for our wedding; Janel took it from there. We had dreamed of a beach house wedding and we chose a house was site unseen (since we were from out of town);We were unable to see the insides of the beach house until the week before. Plans were drawn up by Janel for the ceremony to be held inside but last minute changes to the guest list did not allow for this to happen (venue was not large enough). I made a call out to Janel 3 days before the wedding and said we need to change the venue site to the outside (luckily the weather cooperated). Janel said no problem and on the day of the wedding, the site was transformed into our dream. Excellent work!!!! Great site planning - the wedding went better than anyone could expect!

every penny was worth it


Amazing!! I don't even know if that word does Janel justice! She blew my expectations out of the water. I absolutely loved how everything turned out! I felt as though our requests and visions were a little all over the place... we wanted tropical, but not too beachy and rustic, but not country, yet she managed to do a wonderful job at bringing our ideas to life. Janel was an absolute pleasure to work with always friendly and great at returning emails timely and answering any questions. I wanted to try to be hands on in the design, but with time constraints and a lack of artistic ability she really helped me get involved with a few small projects, but ensured she brought everything together to fit the vision. All of our guests raved about our centerpieces and all the décor details and I still am in love with my bouquet. While the cost of her services was one of the larger expenses for my wedding budget, I felt as though every penny was worth it. This was one of the best decisions we made in planning. I'd recommend Janel and her staff again and again!!

magical, elegant one of a kind "


"I love Janel! Not only is Janel an amazing wedding coordinator, she is simply an amazing person. She turned my vision into a beautiful wedding that our guest are still talking about! As a wedding coordinator, she was timely in response, professional, paid attention to every detail, and assured all my wedding fears. For our wedding flowers and decor, she hand sketched what the venue would look like, what the centerpieces would look like as well as the bouquets to allow us to visualize what to expect. Given the fact that we were having an out of town wedding, my husband and I were not able to physically see all the wedding details that local bride and grooms get to oversee. But, with Janel being so great at what she does, we completed trusted her and her vision. She also recommended us amazing vendors that we used for our lighting, cake, grand exit and photography. Overall, if you are looking to have a magical, elegant and one of a kind wedding, then Janel and Vivid Expressions LLC is your way to go.

She handled everything that came up"


"Janel was wonderful during the wedding planning phase. I was an out-of-state bride, and she made sure to keep in touch via email, text, and phone calls throughout the months leading up to our wedding. The sketches she sent were spot on, and the flowers she put together were perfect! Day of, she handled everything that came up - to include when our transportation failed to show up to take us from the ceremony to the reception. Janel and her staff were very professional. A little pricey, but worth not having stress the day of the wedding!

— Amanda, (Bride)

Executed to perfection"


"We can't thank you enough!  I initially thought I could plan & execute the wedding w/family help but that clearly was not the case!  Everything was very special, as we requested, and executed to perfection.  Rest assured, we will promote Vivid Expressions to all VA couples in the future!

She created excitement"

It was glorious!"


"We received a recommendation 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 bouquet, 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. It was glorious. 

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

— Melissa (Bride)



"I just wanted to thank you for incorporating my beautiful vision of my wedding. Especially my bouquet!!!

 You nailed girl!  Love it.  Hands down, you're amazing!!"

a picture perfect Cinderella fairy tale"


"Janel and her team were the most patient and caring when it came to every aspect and detail of my big day!! I couldn't have asked for more of a special touch than the personal level that I received. Janel turned my reception space into a picture perfect Cinderella fairy tale dream!

creativity is nothing short of genius"

"Janel is awesome! I met with her for our wedding and explained I'm not a frilly bride...she slid a smile on her face and answered no problem. I was worried my next statement would be the real flowers....the smile never left. She assured me there were so many options and she was right. Her creativity is nothing short of genius. She worked with me to understand who I really am and what I really wanted. She provided a sketch of the reception and church design to my amazement. And wowed me again with the design of the sweetheart table. A true professional and a jewel to work with.

Watch the vision come alive!"


"Janel and her team at Vivid Expressions created my daughter's dream wedding! Vivid Expressions started with a detail consultation to identify our daughter and her fiance's vision and needs. We had some terrific vendors, but wanted a professional to help with designing decor for the ceremony and reception. Janel not only created beautiful table-scapes, backdrops, and amazing details throughout, but she worked closely with all our vendors and kept in touch with us every step of the way! We had last minute changes due to weather, but it was stress free knowing Vivid Expressions was in charge.

When my next daughter gets married, I will be starting with Vivid Expressions. We received so much more than we ever expected! Thank you, Janel!

Magical moment

"I had a wonderful time and can not even begin to thank you for sticking it out with a smile on your face and confidence in your voice. The day would not have been the magical moment that Megan and Sid experienced. I would have been a basket case if you and your professional team had not put out so many "fires.  I am not sorry to have met and hired you. Janel you saved the day!  Thank you so much

— Robbie, (Mother of the Groom)

we were able to have the wedding of our dreams"


"She {Janel} 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.

— Audrey, (Bride)

She created designs that captured the look and feel to a tee"


"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.

— Jay Ell, (Bride)

She is absolutely the best because she cares about your day"


"Janel is fantastic!!!! If you need a person that is more like family and extra professional, please call on Vivid Expressions! Her and her team pulled off a dynamic wedding for me and for that I am so very thankful! She is absolutely the best because she cares about your day, as if it were her own! Thank you vivid expressions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


— Tarah, (Bride)

I did not have anything to worry about"


"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.

— Bonnie & Matt, (Bride & Groom)

You and your staff did a wonderful job"


"I finally got to look at the wedding pictures and I am extremely happy with the decoration work at the beach and in the hotel.  You and your staff did a wonderful job and everyone was very impressed on how quickly you set everything up.  Thank you very much!

— Jeff P. (Father of the Bride)

Artistic, imaginative, and wonderfully accommodating!"


"Janel from Vivid Expressions did a wonderful job with our wedding. She made it seamless and beautiful, personalizing the decorations for our outdoor wedding with our song. I would recommend Janel for any event because she is artistic, imaginative, and wonderfully accommodating. She really made our day!!!

So Beautiful"
