Pop the Cork Productions loves helping couples plan, design & manage their wedding with grace, style & FUNction!
Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding Planners in Phoenix Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Janet, from Pop the Cork Productions.
Where have you been featured?
I was thrilled to be featured in Arizona Weddings Magazine with a styled shoot at the Desert Botanical Garden!
Why do couples love working with you?
Well, I think they would say that I go above and beyond to take care of them. I really listen to what they want and make sure it’s their day their way! I am a calm person which helps keep my clients calm. When something doesn’t go as planned (which always happens), I am an expert trouble-shooter and fix it without my clients knowing.
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
I just love helping people celebrate! I have always had a creative spirit but am a planner at heart. I feel like wedding planning requires the perfect combination of my skills, talents, and experience and I love it!
How did you get started?
Hospitality is in my blood. I started working in restaurants at 16, received my degree in Hotel Administration at UNLV and worked my way up the private club industry ladder where I found my love for weddings and events of all kinds. I knew I wanted to start my own wedding and event planning business over twenty years ago and finally took the plunge in 2011. I love the challenge of owning my own business and the freedom it gives me to have balance in my life.
What 3 words best describe your company?
Personable. Resourceful. Organized.
What is your favorite part of the wedding planning process?
Bringing my clients’ day to life! I love seeing all of our hard work come together, seeing my clients let loose knowing their vision has come to fruition and making them smile from ear to ear.
What budget range do you cater to?
I am happy to work with couples with most any budget and if hired soon enough in the wedding planning process, can usually save them at least as much as they pay for my services.
Amazing!!! Best wedding investment by far! Janet & her team went so far above and beyond as our day-of (more like year-of!) wedding coordinators! She was so organized and provided us insight and recommendations on so many aspects of our wedding! She provided way more assistance and help than I could have ever done on my own! I 100% recommend Pop the Cork/Prep2Wed for anyone getting married. Thank you Janet!!!
Professional, caring, knowledgeable, and experienced. Janet is one of those unique professionals that delivers more than expected. Her communication skills excel. That skill along with her attitude and demeanor builds relationships that are based on trust and confidence. I knew that when she said she was going to do something it would be either exactly as the bride wanted it or better. She handled so much more than we originally arranged for. Her priority is most definitely her client. She is a rare professional and I’m confident in recommending her and her company to all.

Thanks again for the most beautiful wedding imaginable. Every friend of ours said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.
