-The English Barn Creative Planners

The English Barn offers the unique Creative Planning experience of innovator and designer, Jane Howe, and professional event coordinator, Carrie Steffenella. We believe your wedding should embody the adventure that you and your fiance are about to share. As experts in the wedding industry, we work closely with you leading up to your event sharing ideas tailored to creating your vision, while you look forward to the beginning of your life together. On your wedding day it is easy to become distracted by the needs of vendors and guests, taking away from your sole responsibility on your day; to celebrate and enjoy the experience. With our services, dozens of people will be working behind-the-scenes to bring your event to life, and you will be oblivious to the production unfolding around you since you have trusted the details to us.

We take our commitment to our couples very seriously, and never forget how much you and your family are counting on us. We pride ourselves on being accessible and involved throughout the entire planning process, culminating in seamless execution. We are available for meetings, phone appointments, emails, and welcome texting as a communication method.  Our aim is to make the planning process of your wedding as pleasurable and stress-free as possible.  Our team is extremely hard working, energetic, artistic, and dedicated. We are diverse, experienced, and extremely talented. We each have very important, defined roles, and we love new challenges.  We believe your wedding experience is only as good as it's execution, therefore our team works diligently behind the scenes to ensure that your wedding will be your best day ever!

At The English Barn we put an enormous emphasis on quality versus quantity and work very closely with our couples throughout their planning process. One of our most favorite parts within the planning experience is the relationship that develops while working with you. When we become a bride’s friend, we subsequently befriend her friends and family. No matter how you become part of The English Barn family, we want you to know we are in it for the long haul! We become your biggest cheerleaders, and will be your friends for life.

So CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement! We would love to schedule a complimentary consultation, hear your vision, and discuss our package options with you.  Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Love, ​

Jane Howe & Carrie Steffenella
