  She and her assistants handled absolutely everything you can think of (and a bunch of things you won't think of) on the wedding day. I didn't have to answer a single question from vendors, grab anyone to be in a picture, tell anyone from the wedding party where to be when, pick up cards/gifts/welcome sign the next day, etc. She did it all.

"I literally told Shannon on my wedding day that she was the best thing to ever happen to me."

Since we had our wedding at our family property, the entire ceremony and reception space basically had to be built from-scratch, but Shannon knew exactly what to do and made it absolute perfection. From the ceremony rehearsal to the end of Sunday brunch, everything went off without a hitch.

“She was instrumental working with us to plan our wedding from across the country.”

Meggie & Zach

The night of our rehearsal, Shannon showed up with an itinerary for everyone in our wedding party and our immediate family members to make sure everyone was on the same page. Come wedding day, things I wasn’t even aware of going on was all taken care of without me even noticing! 

"Shannon was the greatest peace of mind, everything I could’ve wanted and more"
