Corey and Jamie were married at Jiminy Peak on May 25, 2014. They came to me four months before their wedding date with wedding plans that were literally falling apart around them. I happily jumped in to lend a hand and found them a new venue and rerouted all of their wedding details to make it happen for them. They are two amazing people and were kind enough to post this amazing review of my work.
Thank you so much Corey and Jamie for bringing me into your lives! I will love you forever!

“I would recommend Shannon Whitney and Wedding Planning Plus 200%!!! When our wedding venue fell through four months before our wedding, Shannon came to our rescue. She took a chaotic, devastating, and extremely stressful situation and helped us pull off a wedding when we didn’t think it was possible. I only wished we had hired her from the beginning! Shannon wore many hats in her role as our wedding planner and excelled in each of these diverse roles. Let me tell you about them: For instance, she became my go to person to calm my nerves, ease my stress, and be my confidant. In this role, Shannon was soothing, supportive, and always got a laugh out of me. She celebrated each small victory along the way with us and helped us see the light at the end of the tunnel. In addition, her ability to serve as a team leader was remarkable. She collaborated with and managed our families and all of our vendors (most of whom she had never worked with before) so that we all functioned as a unified team. I saw that Shannon was able to play hardball when necessary, remain quiet when needed, get decisions made when the time came, and held people accountable so they followed through on what was promised. We had some of our vendors go out of their way to tell us how much they loved working with Shannon – that says A LOT. Also, we needed to hire a couple vendors at the last minute and Shannon’s network (which all WPP planners benefit from) was so expansive that we were able to find people easily because they all loved working with her and were therefore happy to do so again – we were happy to benefit from Shannon’s connections. Also, in her role as a project manager, Shannon is one of the most organized and responsible people I have EVER met (and I’m pretty Type A myself!). There is not one thing that fell through the cracks. Shannon responds to emails in record speed and if she is ever going to be offline for a while she communicates this in advance (e.g., when she is attending your wedding, all of her attention is on you so she lets her other clients know this). I trusted Shannon completely to guide us through this process and it allowed us to relax completely during our wedding and be in the moment. By the end of four short months, it felt like Shannon was part of our family. I can only imagine how amazing it would have been if we had hired Shannon from the beginning. Therefore, I encourage you to hire her as soon as you can! I feel confident that any planner at WPP is as remarkable as Shannon since she trains them and manages them. If any couples have further questions about Shannon or WPP, I’d be happy to answer them. I owe my wedding to Shannon and can’t recommend her enough. PS. For those hesitant about hiring a wedding planner at all: we were people who never thought we’d spend money on this but investing in a wedding planner can allow you to save money elsewhere (e.g., we got upgrades from a vendor because they loved working with Shannon so much!) and it allows you to experience your wedding to it’s fullest which is what’s most important.“
