I just love to connect with people and I know you do too. So let’s talk about Janice….
Janice Carnevale is a sweetheart that I have been tweeting with for almost a year now. She and I have so much in common and I feel like I know her in real life, but sadly we haven’t had a chance to hook up yet. I am sure one of these days we will!
Janice is the owner of Bellwether Events, an event planning firm based in Washington DC. She lives with her husband Larry and her two rescue dogs, Nikki and Tammy, in Falls Church, Virginia.
Describe your business. We are dedicated to helping modern couples create clever and inspired weddings.
What is your favorite color? I like shades of blue and shades of gray.
Let’s talk coffee….what is your favorite Starbucks beverage? I don’t drink coffee. At all. So when at Starbucks I usually buy Blackberry Hink Water.
What are you watching on TV? Admittedly, I watch a lot of TV. Most people are surprised that I am able to keep up with as many shows as I do. During the summer, I watch all of the original series on USA and TNT, such as In Plain Sight, White Collar, Royal Pains, Suits, and Covert Affairs. Regular season favorites include Glee, House, and any cop or detective drama, a la Criminal Minds.
Tell me one thing you love about your work…. How do I pick just one? The way the groom fiddles with his new ring all night. Seeing the couple as they come down the aisle at the end of the ceremony. The father/daughter dance.
What is one thing you would change about it? It is inevitable that engaged couples are under-educated about what wedding planning entails, and what weddings cost. They likely have never planned such an extravagant party before, and thus suffer from a huge learning curve. I would like to somehow magically educate all couples on the investment often needed to ensure a seamless and beautiful event.
A favorite quote…. “Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying ‘I will try again tomorrow.'” – Mary Anne Radmacher
Beach or Lake…. Both! I like being near the water while I am on R&R.
Disney or Camping…. Neither! Can I go to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios, instead? I would definitely pick roller coasters over sleeping in the dirt.
Europe or Caribbean…. Yes, please! I have been to both, I love both and I will never pass up the chance to visit either.
Heels or flats….. I wear heels (wedges, not stilettos) in limited amounts, as they hurt my back and feet. So I am relegated to flats or sneakers for the most part.
Books or movies….I start a lot of business books – never seem to get around to finishing them. We canceled our Netflix subscription years ago because we watch too much TV to watch any movies. I try to go see a movie in the theatres at least once a month.
Sleep in or stay up late....I do both!
I know you want to see some pictures!
Janice you rock!
Plan on Darling,
