Shannon was fantastic. She managed our budget, our timeline, and everything. She even received packages for us, so we didn’t have to ship things from our home in Atlanta up to the Adirondacks. Thanks to Shannon we always knew where we were in the planning process and what was left to be completed. She thought of things we wouldn’t have, and kept us calm and cool on the wedding weekend. She made everything SO easy.
