Before embarking on the birth of Jane Layne Events, Erica began her career producing events for a prestigious planning firm in NYC. While there, she worked closely planning parties for high-profile clients allowing her to gain priceless knowledge in both social and corporate events. Erica Layne set up shop in Orlando, Florida where she spent a few years building the brand before taking her talents back to the place where she was born and raised – New York City.
An entrepreneuress by nature – her split business & creative brain coupled with her calm demeanor, and talent for simultaneously managing millions of tasks make her successful at anything she does. In addition to event conceptualization and production, she is sought after for her capabilities in brand strategy & development and creative direction for both companies and individuals.
As the founder of Jane Layne Events, she pairs her love for planning & production seamlessly with her obsession for fashion and music, creating a signature style for her clients. She is the mother to the four-legged member of the Jane Layne team; a handsome Boston Terrier named Oscar, a Penn State grad, and is known for being the first and last one any dance floor. Erica has a serious sweet tooth, makes time everyday for a sweat sesh, and indulges by jetsetting around the globe gathering inspiration.
"On behalf of Babylon Lounge and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation we would like to thank Jane Layne Events for planning a spectacular Grand Opening / Charity event. We extend our sincere appreciation to you for unending guidance, patience, professionalism and your flexibility with our crazy schedules during the planning stages. Your impeccable organization skills and great attention to detail made this event one of the most talked about parties in Pittsburgh. The response exceeded all of our hopes. Your combined vision and elegance majestically transformed our raw and industrial outdoor setting into one of sophistication and class. The evening couldn’t have turned out better, we felt very comfortable knowing that you were in charge during the event and we were able to relax and enjoy the time with our guests, so thank you for ensuring that every detail of the night went smoothly and making it a complete success. It was a pleasure doing business with Jane Layne Events and we will be sure to recommend you and your company to many people."− Tara & Billy, Babylon Lounge, Pittsburgh

"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
