Founder // @theericalayne
An entrepreneuress by nature, Erica fused her split business & creative brains with her poised demeanor and talent for simultaneously managing millions of tasks, to build JLE. Since the company’s inception, she has not only been sought after for event conceptualization and execution, but for her strategizing skills, brand awareness, creative direction, and corporate collaborations.
Before embarking on the birth of JLE, Erica was an event producer for a prestigious firm in NYC and consulted on business development for digital communications start-ups on the East Coast.
She is the mother to the four-legged member of the Jane Layne team; a handsome Boston Terrier name Oscar, a Penn State grad, and is known for being the first and last one on any dance floor.
Managing Director: Brands & PR // @thestefirose
Stephani began her creative journey in Miami, Florida coordinating fashion shows and working closely planning events for local non-profits. Growing up in the arts, as a dancer and choreographer, her passion for planning, coordination, and design started at an early age.
Prior to joining Team JLE, she worked at a PR firm gaining experience in brand development, social media marketing, and as a publicist. Balancing her time, her clients, and her many to-do lists – her love for all things creative brought her to Orlando, where her infectious personality, attention to detail, and her grace under pressure will shine (bright, like a diamond).
In her “free” time you can find her obsessing over Papo, her adorable miniature English Bulldog and fitting in a dance class whenever possible.

"Erica was my dream wedding planner. I definitely had a certain type of person in mind when my husband and I decided to hire a wedding planner. As soon as I met Erica, I thought to myself, “I’ve got to have her.” Her demeanor was friendly, light, and breezy, but she subtly stood her ground when necessary. Throughout the year of working with Erica, her brilliant creativity, along with her strong work ethic and commitment to making our wedding the memory of a lifetime, was always present. I was confident in every way that Erica understood our aesthetic and overall feeling my husband and I wanted for our wedding. When our wedding day finally arrived, and we were able to see the true vision of what we had been planning, we were speechless. The look was absolutely beautiful, and the feeling was magical. Every detail was perfect. The flow of our wedding was easygoing; the transition from cocktail hour to dinner to the speeches was smooth and eloquent. I could not have asked for a more professional, unique, creative, detail-oriented, and savvy wedding planner. Erica went above and beyond for our wedding, and we will always cherish her for that."− Sasha & Mike, Orlando
"To the Tour de force that is Team Jane Layne:− Brittany & Michael, Manhattan
We honestly do not know how to articulate how grateful we are to Jane Layne Events for organizing one of the best weekends of our lives. Every detail was so superbly scrutinized and came together into this wonderfully orchestrated and joyful occasion. For 13 months they put up with our micromanaging, late night emails, voicemail tirades, and helped eased us through times of glee, frustration and fury. We cannot hope to thank you enough for the amazing and precious gift you have given us. You organized the wedding of our dreams, a weekend that people will not forget, and somehow managed to keep everyone calm, sane and smiling, including me, which is no small feat. Your expertise and professionalism really shined through! From the bottom of our hearts and the tips of our dancing shoes, THANK YOU so much for everything. "
"Jane Layne has been the most valuable part of rebranding my business. They have such a way of taking everything you want your brand to be, and creating a cohesive and beautiful visual explanation - from the logo to the website and every detail in between.
When we started planning the launch party I had no direction but many ideas. The night that I walked into the room – it was more than I could have ever thought possible. It was everything I wanted and more! Jane Layne Events was able to create a vision that essentially read my mind and brought my thoughts to reality in ways I never thought possible. I could not have asked for a better event planner, and with the Jane Layne team behind you there is nothing to worry about. No task is ever too difficult or too small. They are someone I will call on for a long time to come. "− Kathryn, KJean Designs, Tampa
"JLE, although it stands for Jane Layne Events, could very well stand for jubilant, lavish, exquisite. Those are the words I would use to describe the recent event that Erica and Rachel created for us. Having an event planned by JLE was stress free, fun, and a wonderful experience. Collaborating with the team and seeing them execute their creations was an enjoyable process. Their hard work, dedication, and attention to detail insured that our daughter’s Sweet 16 was an evening she will never forget, and was most definitely the party of the year!
They were able to make our vision a reality with all of the little personal touches, and the big “wow” factors too. Having JLE mange the party allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our evening, and our guests. Every vendor they selected was top-notch and professional. I know that every event in the future for our family will include the expert planning and the creative flair that ONLY Jane Layne Events has."− Jessica & Harold, Long Island
"I highly recommend Jane Layne Events. They handled our entire wedding weekend, and we could not have asked for a more perfect, personal, seamless, and all-around wonderful event. Their experience, attention to detail and calm demeanor took any stress out of the equation, allowing us to truly relax and enjoy every minute of our big day. They are honest, on-point, insanely stylish and genuinely talented at what they do — true professionals from head to stiletto."− Erica & Bobby, Virginia Beach
"My husband and I live in Atlanta. When we got engaged and I realized we would need to plan a wedding long distance, from Atlanta to New York, the nerves really hit me. Then ... in walks Jane Layne Events! There is no way we could have done it without them. From our first Skype meeting until the big weekend in New York City, they supported and lead us with care and creativity. They managed the small details so we wouldn't get wrapped up in them and lose focus on what really mattered- each other. Thank you Erica and Rachel for planning a wedding weekend that far exceeded our imagination! "− Carly & Adam, Atlanta
"Citywire Americas recently hired JLE to organize the party for the opening of our first ever office in the USA. I can't say enough good things about this company and the flawless execution of our event. From the minute we discussed the concept to the time of the party itself, JLE was totally dedicated to our project and made everything a real breeze for us. I would particularly like to mention their attention to details- every single element of our event was planned to the T. Their management on site at the event was so professional so much so that our guests commented on the friendliness of the event organizers. Thank you JLE!"− Marissa Lewis, Head of the Americas - Citywire Americas
"When it came time to put together a party to celebrate my daughter becoming a Bat Mitzvah, I turned to Jane Layne Events. Erica took care of every detail for me, but most importantly, kept me organized and on budget. Erica’s collaborative attitude and attention to every detail certainly made our event very special for our daughter. I recommend Jane Layne for your event if you want a real personal touch. One of the outstanding pieces of the party was a branded bake shop, from where dessert was served. Everyone loved it!"− Laura Mandel, Manhattan
"Jane Layne Events understood that we didn't want a cookie-cutter wedding, and delivered an event that was highly personal and reflected us as a couple. In the lead-up to the day, knowing that they were taking care of every detail and always just a phone call away allowed us to relax and spend time with our friends and family. The wedding itself was seamless—they were on top of everything at all times, all we had to do was turn up and enjoy ourselves. Thank you, Jane Layne Events, for a stress-free wedding that was perfectly us."− Sarah & Ariel, Brooklyn
