Unique Weddings and EventsYour Day, Your Way!

Nearly every young girl has a fabulous vision of her wedding day – a someday dream that she always treasures. Unfortunately, as the big day approaches, many brides feel they have to settle for what well-meaning family, friends or even a wedding planner advises. I believe that every bride should have the wedding she always wanted.

Hello, my name is Janay Bishop, owner of Unique Weddings and Events by Janay.  When my kids were small, I wanted to work at home; especially since I had a special needs child. So I started planning parties and weddings on a part-time basis, primarily through contacts at my church. The growing number of word-of-mouth references kept me quite busy. Then about four years ago and after the kids were grown, I made event planning a successful and most enjoyable full-time business.

Janay BishopI’ve always had a great eye and imagination – the ability to look at any room or other setting, no matter how bland, and see its potential. To me, the trick is in knowing how to accessorize, especially by using draperies on the walls and ceilings. Another way I magically transform a room is with uplights – spotlights that create shadows and mood.  My signature look is achieved when six to 12 lighted columns of varying heights (which I made myself) provide a soft glow and memorable touch of elegance.

I’ve been told many times when a client walks into my final production that she can’t believe it’s the same room. What a wonderful compliment! I don’t believe in cookie cutter weddings or other events. I spend a great deal of time with event planners trying to uncover the real vision they’re reluctant to share thinking it’s “too much,” or impossible to achieve on a set budget. Fortunately, I love a challenge and I’m game for nearly anything. One bride had always dreamed of a Cinderella wedding, so I actually painted a backdrop of a castle.  For another, I created an outdoor winter wonderland. A wedding on horseback is among my favorite creations.

In addition to concepts, themes, room design and decorations, I also design fresh and silk floral arrangements myself. I often coordinate all aspects of the events using my excellent and trustworthy vendors, photographers, caterers, entertainers, among others.

If you’re planning an event and want a look and feel that’s all your own, please give me a call at Unique Weddings & Events by Janay or visit my website for more information. My services are available for nearly all occasions, including birthday and holiday parties, anniversaries, bridal and baby showers and any other reason to have a unique and memorable special event, large or small in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and surrounding areas.
