Meet Shannon Whitney Anson, founder and industry veteran of 15 years living in the mountains of Upstate New York.

Growing up on the shores of Lake George and a lifelong resident, Shannon has always appreciated the beauty of Upstate New York. She knows every nook and cranny of the region from the hills of the Hudson Valley to the Adirondack mountains. As a wedding planner for over a decade, she has cultivated relationships with all the vendors in the area to build a team specific to every couple and their wedding. Her experience and network stands above the rest.

ABOUT

"I open the door so you can be as expressive as you want to be."

Over the years as a wedding planner and therapist wrapped into one, Shannon has seen more and more couples looking to break the cookie cutter mold and plan a completely unique celebration for their family and friends. She loves getting to know her couples to help them build a uniquely special event that is expertly crafted and authentically them. That's why she doesn't put her couples into a typical go-to wedding formula. Every couple and their story is one-of-a-kind, and that's why Shannon specializes in bringing your vision and vibe to life for the ultimate celebration of your story.
