I cannot say enough wonderful things about Shayne! I booked her as the day-of coordinator for my wedding, and my only regret is that I did not use her as my full-on wedding planner. She is absolutely amazing at what she does -- I knew from the moment I spoke to her on the phone that she would be awesome to work with and she did not disappoint!
Leading up to my wedding, Shayne checked in with me monthly and sent me check lists to make sure that I was on track with my planning. We also had multiple phone calls and an in-person meeting before the wedding, of all of which was so helpful. Truthfully, I think Shayne went above and beyond what she needed to considering that I had hired her for day-of and not the full wedding planning package. For example, I emailed her countless times to ask her random questions or get vendor recommendations and she was always more than happy to help. Every suggestion or recommendation that I followed from her ended up being spot on. I booked most of my vendors based on recommendations from Shayne and they were all wonderful.
The day of the wedding, Shayne handled absolutely everything. I felt so at ease knowing she was there -- I am sure there are things that went wrong behind the scenes, but as far as I know, everything was perfect, and if anything did go wrong, Shayne handled it without me knowing any different. Throughout the night, she would quietly let me know when it was time to cut the cake or toss the bouquet -- it was so helpful to have someone there to make sure everything stayed on track.
Book her now while you can! I have no doubt that soon she will be booked for years in advance and charging triple what she does now, because she is just that great. I would recommend Shayne to anyone looking for a wedding planner - she is simply the best!
Shayne was absolutely AMAZING! She is not only very organized and reliable, but also a really nice person and a blast to work with. She follows through with what she says she'll do. She has a great artistic eye and really tries to envision what you want. She did all the planning for a year leading up to the wedding and then was there Friday for the rehearsal dinner and all day Saturday until midnight. I couldn't have asked for a more reliable, sweet, talented and passionate wedding planner. She took the time to get to know my husband and me and I am SO HAPPY to have chosen her for the big day. The quality for the value was unbelievable. She could have charged twice what she did. I would give her 10 stars if I could!
Shayne was everything my husband and I could have asked for. I cannot tell you how many times we told each other “Thank god we have Shayne”. She is warm, creative, enthusiastic, responsive, and above all incredibly organized. Working with her made everything so straightforward and stress free. Shayne was on top of everything with detailed plans and goals for each month before the wedding. I never had to stress about missing deadlines or forgetting details because I knew she was keeping us on top of everything!
Additionally, because Shayne has worked with so many different vendors in the area, she was able to connect us with people we would really enjoy working with. In every meeting and email, she really took the time to learn about what was important to us and help us crystallize our ideas into something cohesive. For areas where we didn’t have a clue, she was an invaluable source of ideas and inspiration. I really appreciated her creativity and sense of fun. The results were fantastic and we could not be happier.
Having a beautiful, stress free wedding would have been wonderful enough, but more than that, working with Shayne made all the planning leading up to the wedding a joy. She is such a wonderful person, and I cannot recommend her enough! Work with her!
Shayne and her team are phenomenal! Her services were priceless. She ensured that everything was more than we could have asked for and we didn't have to worry about a single thing on our big day!
I could write a book on why I love Shayne Souleret, but I'll try to keep it simple. My relationship with Shayne began when I had done a large portion of planning and decided I needed a coordinator to carry my plans through so I could fully enjoy my rehearsal and wedding. I spoke with Shayne on the phone and without hesitation, asked her to forward her contract to me. I knew it was a good fit because she sounded kindhearted, genuinely interested in me and experienced. Here is my list of reasons I'm thankful I hired Shayne:
-Shayne had a great relationship with my venue
-I received monthly and then weekly checklists
-Shayne created floor plans and timelines that were thorough and easy to understand
-Shayne set up in-person meetings with my husband and me
- Shayne is sweet, polite, well-spoken, but can also take charge of a room and a situation
- Shayne has assistance and takes on interns
-Shayne internalizes your dreams for your wedding and makes those are number one priority, even when negotiating with vendors, bridal party members and parents who also feel they think they know what's best for you
- Shayne has an eye for style and not only plan a wedding on paper, but design a beautiful venue
-the week of my wedding Shayne worked her behind off for me-she contacted all my vendors to ensure all details of their service, while keeping me in the loop
-Shayne and her staff completely set up and tore down my venue allowing for my family,bridal party and especially my husband and I to relax
-Shayne is attentive to the bride and groom during the ceremony and wedding
-Shayne knows how to bustle a dress!
-Shayne has her own wedding supplies and when things come up that you didn't think of, from a reserved sign to a case for your flowers, she is prepared
-I didn't know of any issues (need for ice, timeline changes,etc) during my wedding because Shayne handled them without hesitation
Finally, a quote from my mom, "Shayne is worth her weight in gold."
Stop. Seriously. Stop looking for a wedding coordinator and hire Shayne immediately. You better hurry before she gets booked up or leaves the wedding business to organize global parties for Presidents, Prime Ministers and Princes. She's that good. I can't even begin to go into detail of how on top of everything she was. Even before we asked about something, it was already taken care of. You're taking too long to read this review...time is wasting. Hurry up and contact her now!
Shayne is AWESOME to work with! From the smallest detail to making last-minute decisions, Shayne's professionalism shines through. We have been working with Shayne for over a year now and she was instrumental in finding terrific vendors, providing consultation, and executing a perfect wedding day for our daughter and son-in-law. Our ceremony and reception sites were about 50 minutes apart and even though this seemed unworkable, she made it a breeze to help our guests navigate through the entire day without a hitch. I would recommend Shayne and her "team" to anyone wanting help planning her wedding!
Shayne was the best thing that happened to me for my wedding day! I honestly dont know how anything would have gotten accomplished without Shayne and her team. They were so nice and accomodating - she even helped me through my final nervous breakdown before my rehearsal :) Every single detail of my wedding was executed flawlessly, I could not have asked for more.
Shayne is so organized, friendly and professional -if you are looking for a wedding planner, no need to look any further!
Shayne was by far the BEST and most professional wedding planner we could have ever hired. I've never written an online review, but have never been happier with a vendor selection and had to express this to future brides. We planned our wedding from out of town and Shayne helped us coordinate all aspects of our special day. I am very detail oriented and often find it difficult to work with certain vendors who are unresponsive. Shayne is the exact opposite. She thinks of every detail and coordinates all of the logistics even before we anticipated an issue or problem. One item we needed to coordinate was determining how to clear our venue out before the end of the evening, while still allowing our parents to enjoy the party. Shayne and her team packed up our wedding venue into our Van and drove it back to the valet at the hotel on our behalf and left the keys with the front desk. We also used an inexperienced officiant and Shayne made her feel comfortable as well we helped run the entire ceremony and rehearsal. Every last detail was thought out and considered. We were very lucky to have wonderful vendors, but even with great vendors there are tiny hiccups and differences of opinion. Shayne was always on our side and willing to have tough discussions to ensure our wants and needs as the bride and groom were met.
Shayne makes herself 100% available for the bride and groom before, during and after the wedding. When our venue called about a few items left behind by the bartenders and catering staff, she went out of her way to pick up from the venue and hold onto until we can get back into town to pick up. This is above and beyond her responsibility and genuinely shows her honesty and passion for what she does and doing the right thing.
There are hundreds of examples that I can provide about Shayne's character and excellent wedding planning skills. Please reach out to Shayne for my contact information if you would like to personally discuss further!
Shayne is the consummate professional. She is organized, detail-oriented, thoughtful, creative and flexible - all very important qualities for a wedding planner.
When we first met Shayne, we sketched out the entire day as we had planned it (we planned the event before hiring Shayne - big mistake). Shayne immediately but calmly identified a major logistical glitch to our plan. Our guests would arrive when things were still being set up! I panicked. Shayne didn’t. She calmly and confidently told me she could fix it and she did. She revised timing with our vendors so things ran flawlessly.
Take-away 1: Shayne has a strong sense of logistics and when she observes a problem, she fixes it and without causing you or your fiancé any additional panic or stress.
Shayne is approachable yet sophisticated. I had several guests complement me on the quality of service Shayne provided to them on the day of the wedding! I was thrilled to know that our guests felt as they should feel- like the most important people in our lives.
Take-away 2: Shayne is a graceful and gracious master of ceremony.
Shayne is inspired and makes it happen. I gave Shayne a long list of unattended to details to handle. She confidently assured me “I can do that. Just let me know what your budget is.” With a list, a modest budget, and a few pictures of our inspiration, Shayne completed every detail and everything matched the theme perfectly.
Take-away 3: Shayne can understand a vision and make that vision a reality.
Finally, Shayne is an advocate. T-2 weeks to the wedding, my photographer told me that we couldn't take pictures in my location of choice given the schedule, and suggested an alternative I hated. I almost had a meltdown, but instead I called Shayne. Within 24 hours, Shayne called me back to let me know the photos would be taken at my location of choice. Boom. Done.
Take-away 4: Get Shayne. She rocks.
Simply put: Shayne made our wedding possible. Not only did she work hard to accommodate a number of odd requests, keep us on track, organize all the vendors, and cover every single little detail, but she did so while being ever friendly, accessible, and able to help in every situation. There were a lot of complicated moving parts for our wedding that had us nervous, but thanks to Shayne, everything went perfectly, and our guests continue to compliment us on how great everything was, which we often have to credit to Shayne for. She more than covered her reasonable fee by saving us money by knowing which vendors to go to, and negotiating discounts with the ones we had to use. I do not say this to be cliche, but only because it is true: She made our dream come true. I cannot recommend her more highly, and if there is any doubt, I will put my email here(Jerry.D.May@gmail.com).Feel free to email me if you have any questions; I would be even willing to speak on the phone about how important Shayne was to the success of our day.
