You can tell she is so passionate about what she does to provide individuals with the best memories on their special day even if it’s last minute you want to get married.

“The Christian & Christian Bullard Love Story: We met at Jan’s house, on Labor Day 2003, so it only seemed fitting that we get married at Waterfront Weddings when we decided to finally have our long awaited wedding. The venue blew our minds when we walked into her lovely home and started planning our magical day! Our beautiful waterfront ceremony & perfect 80 degree weather on 10/10/2020 was so inviting for us and our wonderful guests. The floral bouquet was perfectly matched to my dress , the decor was so gorgeous and the food/cake was more than amazing! Getting ready in my own personal “Brides room” was special to me because I was able to have many photos with my girls right before my walk down the aisle. My husband & I were able to sit like King & Queen at our very own table for dinner and for our cake ceremony. We had our own personal, playlist going throughout Jan’s speakers which was great to see all our guests loving the music. We also did a photo shoot with our “first look” moment captured by Brad Glidewell Photography and the pictures turned out amazing with a lake sunset behind us for our 5pm wedding. Highly recommended location for your wedding to take place at the Lake Of The Ozarks! Jan & her staff were nothing but professional and always willing to go the extra mile to make everyone feel welcomed & comfortable.”
“We had the most amazing experience with Waterfront Weddings. From the set up to the whole crew and photographer. It was the most beautiful and magical wedding! Everyone had the best time and it went so smoothly. We couldn’t of asked for a better day or a more perfect place to make our dream come true!! Thank you so much for all you did!! 😘”
“Jan Jan was so amazing to work with! She made our wedding day so magical. Everything turned out perfectly. Jan Jan is so passionate and puts her heart and soul into everything she does and it really shows. I felt fully confident that our special day was in good hands. Her team was on top of everything, so lovely and truly helpful throughout the night. The photographer Kate was a joy and incredible to work with as well. We highly recommend Waterfront Weddings. Beautiful venue and beautiful people!”
“I rarely ever leave reviews but working with Jan was too good not to leave her a review. She made our last minute elopement so easy and seamless. She was so easy to communicate with and all of the personal touches…you can really tell she loves what she does! I could not of asked for a more perfect elopement. And she tolerated us all so well…I know we were probably a handful 😂”
“Jan Jan is AMAZING at what she does! She makes her couples feel special and plans beautiful ceremonies, so what more could you ask for?! Plus, she has great photography skills for someone who is not a professional photographer. This is great if you’re looking to save money! Her entire venue is GORGEOUS and honestly, a sunset wedding is the way to go. I loved how she was available to answer my texts/emails pretty much any time of the day, and she has such a fun personality! I highly recommend Waterfront Weddings to those who want a beautiful wedding without the hassle of decorating and finding an officiant (though you can bring your own). Her staff that helps out during the wedding is great too!”
“Jan Jan was wonderful to work with. She accommodated our last minute changes and made our ceremony perfect. The venue is beautiful and the right size for an intimate wedding. I highly recommend for anyone looking to get married on the water without the hassle of a destination wedding or the high price tag.”
“We couldn’t have asked for a better place. Absolutely beautiful. Jan was sooo accommodating, and totally made us feel comfortable. We got married on July 7! It was a sunset wedding. Sunflowers are my favorite flower so, bouquet and the decorations were sunflowers! The wedding cake had sunflowers on it. We added live butterflies 🦋 into it all. Between Jan & Kate, the photographer, it was magical!”
“Waterfront Weddings is such a beautiful, well put together venue. Jan and her staff did an amazing job making my daughters wedding day a very special day. Thrilled with everything! Thank you Jan!! Also want to mention the photographer, Kate Wright, was awesome as well! We loved it all! Perfect! ♥️ “
“We are so happy we chose waterfront weddings for our special day! It was amazing!!!!! Jan and her staff go above and beyond to make everything perfect. I wish we could do it all over again. Thank you Jan!!♥️💍 “

“My wedding day is everything I could have dreamed of and more. Not only is Jan Jan enthusiastic, professional, and the sweetest woman ever, but this day could not have happened without her assistance. I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking to have a small and simple wedding day. My husband and I (and both our families) were overly satisfied with our day. 😍👰💍 Thank you so much Jan Jan for everything you do.”
“Thank you SO MUCH Jan Jan!!! You were an absolute blessing to me, accommodating every surprise we threw at you! The venue pictures will never do your place justice, it was breathtaking. I literally cried before she even set anything up! You tell her what you want and you receive exactly that! She even set up a memorial table for the family members of ours that couldn’t make it 😢 She made all my dreams come true to say the least! We will never forget how special you made us feel that day. We love you Jan Jan!!!”
“Jan is so awesome! I will not go anywhere else to get my vows renewed. The pictures here just don’t do it justice. This place is so beautiful!!! Jan makes it even better with her personality! She makes it so easy to plan a wedding, I didn’t stress one time. This place will always have a special place in my heart! <3 “

Her venue is beautiful and she pours her heart into every aspect of the wedding day process from the decor to the catering and ceremony.

She is truly a remarkable and gifted wedding planner and we definitely recommend her services to anyone who wants to have a fantastic wedding day! Definitely five stars!”
“Jan Jan did an amazing job putting our wedding together. Originally we were going to do it in Florida but due to COVID-19 we had to cancel. She put together a beautiful wedding with only 9 days notice. I have to say that our wedding with her was better than what I imagine a Florida beach wedding would’ve been. She made our day absolutely perfect, and I would recommend her services to anyone who’s getting married. Thank you so much Jan Jan 💕🥰”
“Jan Jan is super amazing!!! We love her so much! She made what most people would say a simple elopement into magic! We were married on May 4, 2020. Yes corona season 😷! Jan Jan made it possible for us to get married and it was so amazing. Your place is gorgeous also! You would’ve thought it was a big wedding the way she decorated and fought for us and the storm that day! LoL I wanted more than anything to have an outside wedding at sunset. Jan watch the weather and got everything ready and texted me and said there’s a break in the rain between 3:30 and 6:30. We will work it out between those times if you still want to do this outside. It may not have been my perfect sunset wedding, but Jan Jan made it the perfect wedding. I can not give enough gratitude to this amazing woman and all her hard work! She even set me up with someone to do my hair, who was also amazing by the way!!! Thank you so much for all you do Jan Jan! You really are the best! It was both beautiful and amazing! You made our day so special! It couldn’t have happened without you!!! 🥰”
“Thank you so much for turning our love story into a fairytale in the midst of the chaos of the coronavirus pandemonium. Awesome venue, brilliant views and breathtaking vows!”
“Jan Jan thanks so much for our wedding experience, it was truly amazing!!! You made the whole ceremony so fun and so special! You did an awesome job and we will always remember this wonderful wedding day! Your venue is absolutely outstanding!! Thanks again!”
“Jan was absolutely amazing, and her setup is beautiful here at the Lake of the Ozarks! She’s so outgoing and helpful in every way that she can be. My new wife and I were very pleased with the arrangements that she made for us and our family. We highly recommend her! Thanks again for everything Jan!”
“This was the most PERFECT and BEAUTIFUL venue! Absolutely gorgeous and Jan Jan pours her heart into what she does! She made sure everything was perfect for our wedding day. She even offered to move our wedding up to a sooner time so we’d beat the rain. We hired our our photographer but she captured tons of wonderful pictures of our day as well. In my opinion this venue is very budget friendly and Jan Jan takes care of everything, you just have to show up. I’m so thankful I came across Waterfront Weddings and so thankful for Jan Jan for making sure our day was perfect.”
“Jan Jan, you were so wonderful to work with… you are filled with such joy and happiness it is contagious. You made our day extra special with everything you did to make our vows & pics amazing! I will definitely recommend your waterfront venue to everyone… it is so worth it! The BEST in all categories!”

“Jan Jan was absolutely wonderful on our big day! I wish we had more time here to cherish the beauty. Jan Jan decorated everything to perfection and made our guests feel welcome and special. It was absolutely a perfect intimate wedding.”
“Jan was amazing. She answered all my questions via text, phone or email at any time no matter how random. We were busy remodeling a house and I was going to school full-time and working and we wanted to get married on the lake since we vacation there every year. It was a perfect day for us ❤️ it was beautiful, she pays such great attention to detail and everything was beautiful. A day we will never forget. And she’s so upbeat and happy it’s contagious, and I loved her coordinating all this and she such a great person, and great at what she does! Thank you again!!!”

“Omg!! I CANNOT say enough about Jan and Waterfront Weddings! ?This place was seriously breathtaking! My husband and I are so thankful we found Jan! We wanted something simple but yet still elegant… and lookie here! Waterfront Weddings made our dream come true! Look no further when trying to decide on your wedding venue. We live over two hours away and I had a small simple (family only) wedding at the end of July and it was PERFECT! We ? the water but didn’t want to spend the money to do a destination wedding because we wanted family there. Jan really does make you feel at home! Show up, say your I-Do’s, give a few smooches and enjoy The rest of your day/evening/night on the water like we did! I’m tellin you guys! This was amazing!! I plan to NEVER get married again but I would do it all over again if I had too. LOL! Thanks Jan Jan! You are seriously the best!! ? ?”
“Planning a wedding is something I know nothing about. I was looking for a short, sweet & no fuss… so I chose the Short & Sweet package. I contacted JanJan for our ceremony and she was beyond helpful. After sending a few pics of what I wanted for a cake & bouquet (extra) JanJan made it happen. Both were amazing! She even set up the photographer for us! All we had to do was show up! Her venue is beautiful & she has many wonderful spots for amazing & unique photos. We were beyond happy with our little wedding and can’t say Thank You enough for making everything perfect for us!! ?”
“Jan Jan was amazing from the beginning. I messaged her four days before our wedding at night and we spoke until midnight. She made this elopement go extremely smooth and put up with our crazy family! It was soo much fun and fairly laid back for a quick wedding. Such an amazing location. Too many good things to say about Jan Jan and her beautiful wedding arrangements. Getting married here for sure!!!”
“The girls did an awesome job at everything. They made my special day the greatest ever! Thank you for the best day of my life! So beautiful on the lake as well.”

“We are beyond happy that we chose Waterfront Weddings for our ceremony. Jan Jan was so sweet to work with and literally took care of everything.

Thanks again Jan Jan for everything. ?? Our wedding day was so special ?”
“Oh my goodness…I cannot say enough about Waterfront Weddings!!! i am new at the lake but heard from Lyndsey at Serenity Medical Spa about Jan Jan and her business. I reached out to Jan Jan and she immediately won my heart! She invited us to come over and look at the area before so we could decide if that is where we wanted to have our weddings. Her venue is absolutely gorgeous and was perfect for what we were looking for!! She was so attentive to details and made me feel so relaxed – it was like working with a friend! I did not have to fret about anything which was a blessing! I would recommend Jan Jan and Waterfront Weddings to anyone who is looking to get married or renew their vows. We said our “I do’s” on 9.1.18 – a day I will never forget…the weather was great, the blessing of the stones was awesome, the mixing of the sands was beautiful….I am one happy bride!! A huge shout out to Sirena, Jan Jan’s assistant, who was amazing with my guests and especially me. Love you guys!!! ❤❤”
“Thank you Jan for the most perfect wedding! Jan absolutely LOVES what she does and we are so happy that we chose to get married at Waterfront Weddings. My husband and I wanted to get married at the courthouse and when that wasn’t an option, I felt so overwhelmed with the thought of planning something. We didn’t want a traditional large, day long wedding and were both nervous about standing up in front of people, even just our family. Jan made us feel comfortable and the ceremony was the perfect amount of time and was so unique. In the end we are so grateful we found Jan and we wouldn’t change one thing about our wedding. Thanks again! ❤”
“There are not enough stars to rate here! Jan was so wonderful and easy going! I emailed her two days before our eloping date, we did it spur of the moment. She was AMAZING, she made it so easy and got everything set up perfect! We can’t thank her enough for planning as fast as she did! She is so caring and welcoming! She did great at making our day perfect!”
“Jan Jan is the best wedding planner ever!!! The venue was absolutely gorgeous and everything was so perfect!!! I forgot a couple of things in my pre-wedding bliss/mind fog, and Jan Jan was so helpful and accommodating! The communication was above and beyond; she helped me every step of the way and kept up communication but never bombarded me. So talented too!!! My big day was stunning and absolutely perfect!! And the price was fantastic! My family and friends thought we spent A LOT more than we actually spent, we got the “the works” package. It was One Thousand times worth it!!!!! Thank you for everything Jan we ❤ you!!!”
“Most amazing day of my life. Waterfront Weddings made it amazing. Jan you are truly the best! And the venue speaks for itself, it’s gorgeous! I knew it would be the place as soon as I talked to Jan. She truly made everything even more perfect and smooth than I imagined. It’s PERFECTION!”
“What a great experience!!! My husband and I got married here one June 10th. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived by boat at the dock. The pictures really don’t do it justice. It really is so much nicer in person. The inside area for eating and getting ready was very nice. We got The Works package. The cake, and bouquet were amazing. Jan took care of everything for us. All we had to do was show up. Everyone there was so nice and ready to help with whatever we needed. Even her helper that set up the tables, made a big production of walking my 71 year old mother back to the boat, which made her feel very special, and a little sad she didn’t ask for his number I highly recommend Waterfront Weddings! It was a very sweet and tender moment that I will never forget.”
“Our wedding was perfect because of Waterfront Weddings!! Jan did amazing with all of the details and love she put into our event! We boated over and as we pulled up my breath was taken away because of how beautiful it was! Jan and Amy went above and beyond to make sure the day was perfect! It was so relaxing to show up and everything was done for us! Jan did a family sand ceremony to include my step son which meant a lot to us to include him more. We had a party of 30 so she had her work cut out for her but everyone there could not say enough wonderful things about the venue and how well all of were taken care of! I honestly wish we could get married every weekend because of how AMAZING our day was and we owe it all to Waterfront Weddings!”
“I can’t say enough about Waterfront Weddings. The setting and view, stunning and the service, excellent. No hassles or worries- just an exceptional ceremony with beautiful pictures. Thank you Jan for a lifetime of memories.”
“Organized, beautiful and professional!! Jan, Cheri and Roger made our ceremony one to cherish!! I would highly recommend this unique and intimate venue!”
“Amazing venue, yet so affordable! If your desire is for an extraordinary, intimate setting with a beautiful resort vibe, this is it! Jan will ensure that your wedding day is exceptional, memorable and fun!!”
“We eloped at Waterfront Weddings in a beautiful sunset ceremony, and couldn’t have asked for a better venue or host! We wanted the ambiance of a beach wedding, but neither of us was interested in dealing with sand, so Waterfront Weddings was PERFECT for us! The dock where the ceremony took place was perfect, with that amazing waterfront backdrop we had been looking for. Jan was nothing short of amazing. She had everything set up and ready to go when we got there. We literally just had to show up and say, “I do!” She also took photos for us, and they turned out so wonderful. There are several really great places at the venue for shots, and we couldn’t narrow down what we liked, so she just led us around and took a few at each one! We would absolutely recommend Waterfront Weddings for anyone looking for a ceremony on the water!”
“I highly recommend having a wedding here!!! We loved our wedding, it was sooo beautiful. Jan was awesome and very accommodating!! Cheri did amazing pictures!!! And Roger the officiant did a great ceremony!! The property is very pretty and made for great pictures!!!! We will remember this day forever!!!”
“Juan and I loved having our wedding here. Jan is a wonderful hostess – making sure everything was just right and Roger’s ceremony and readings are beautiful. The setting is gorgeous and we could not have found a better place for our wedding. We cannot give more stars or a higher rating – but wish we could! All week we’ve told everyone we meet what a great experience we had with Waterfront Weddings!”
“5 stars doesn’t even touch the experience we had! My husband and I got married here on sat 9/9/17 and I was blown away with how it turned out, Jan and her team did and outstanding job. Keep in mind we had 35 guests at our wedding and Jan paid so much attention to detail and went above and beyond our expectations to provide quality, personal/friendly service! Everyone on her team was so welcoming and so on track, I could just drive down there right now and hug them all! This experience was nothing short of amazing. We had many choices of venues to book and we couldn’t be happier that we chose this one. If you are looking for a beautiful venue, with a personal, relaxing not overwhelming atmosphere, at a price you can not beat for the service you receive here, this is your place! If I could do it all over again, I would chosen her sooner! Not only did we leave with an amazing day to remember, we left here with a friend for life.”
“We had such an amazing wedding. Things could not have been better. Jan did such a wonderful job making sure everything was perfect. Beautiful venue!”
“Jan did a great job and made the ceremony very touching and unique. She made sure we got all the photos we wanted and gave many suggestions. She was just so welcoming and excited for us. The venue was perfect for us as we had wanted a beach experience but as we love the lake, it was worked out great for us and felt right.”
“What a beautiful place for a wedding. My husband and I got married 11/12/17, and Jan couldn’t have made it more special. Everything was setup beautifully, to make our special day one we will never forget. Big shout out to Lisa, for being there to witness. You gals are the best!”
“Jan was amazing, she was very courteous and professional and the venue was breathtaking! She made our occasion so special!!”
