Erin Mckee was our day of wedding coordinator from Wedding Planning Plus. My husband was initially skeptical about hiring a day of coordinator but after all was said and done he told me it was the best money we spent. We really felt like we got to enjoy our wedding day and that is because Erin handled everything. She truly was amazing from start to finish.
Going into wedding planning my biggest worry was running late. We had a tight timeline the day of and I didn't want to worry about being on time. Erin was crucial in making this happen. The day of timeline she created was so detailed and helped ease my worry. I am fully convinced that without her our wedding wouldn't have gone as smoothly. My husband and I had a stress free day and I attribute most of that to Erin and her hard work.
We worked with Melissa from WPP and she was amazing. She was prepared, supportive, well-organized, upbeat, and FUN! These are all the best qualities that one can hope for in a day-of wedding coordinator. Thank you WPP for helping make our wedding even better than we could have imagined. We 100% recommend WPP to anyone looking to ensure their wedding day is stress-free!
Shannon Whitney Anson form Wedding Planning Plus helped this nervous Nellie and Type A personality, Mother of the Bride have a WONDERFUL day! She took so much stress from me by calmly encouraging me to give up control, and allow her to do what she does BEST… coordinate!!! As our Day of Event coordinator, Shannon helped me fully enjoy my daughter’s wedding day, by taking the worry out of the equation. I knew the minute I met and shook hands; she was the person we needed! Planning a large wedding takes time; effort and attention to detail, and Shannon helped me tie up loose ends which made for a seamless, flawless, stress-free day. With EVERYTHING under control, and under Shannon’s watchful eye, my husband and I were able to enjoy ourselves and our guests. Thank you Shannon for taking the wheel out of my hands so that I might enjoy the RIDE! You are the BEST and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone, anytime!!
When planning our Wedding, my husband and I never thought about hiring a wedding planner, until a family member mentioned that it might be a nice idea to hire a Day-of-Event coordinator so that we could enjoy our special day without worries and stress, enter Shannon Whitney-Anson owner of Wedding Planning Plus! Shannon’s professionalism, attention to every detail, organization, sense of humor, calmness, and her Team Bride and Groom attitude, made our day flawless, stress-free, and memorable. From connecting with us one month out to ensure all our vendors knew what to expect, to the schedules you put in place that helped make sure everyone was on the same page, where they needed to be and on time, to the rehearsal, and then the reception making sure everything got placed where it needed to be and packed up and delivered back to our room at the end of the reception, Shannon you were in complete control, allowing us to concentrate on enjoying ourselves, our families, our friends. Shannon you made EVERYTHING go perfectly, and we had an amazingly fun, and incredible day!! Saying “I DO” was made so much nicer and simpler because of you. Thank you for making us feel like family, for never making us feel any questions we had were to small, or trivial, and for helping give us a dream wedding. We made a great decision when we decided to work with you personally and would highly recommend you to anyone planning a wedding! Thank You Shannon, and continued good luck in life and in your business!

Erin McKee was my day of wedding coordinator from Wedding Planning Plus. Let me just say this was so much more then just the day of wedding prep. This was a two month commitment from Erin and she was absolutely amazing! She was such a pleasure to work with and so eager to help with anything. I am so honored to have had Erin at our wedding. She went above and beyond.
Week’s prior to the wedding, Erin and I whittled away at a checklist to make sure she would not miss a detail. This list made me feel so good about how the wedding day was going to unfold. If anything was missing, Erin would make sure it got done.
A few weeks before the wedding, Erin met with me at the venue. She wrote down every detail of what I wanted for the wedding, contacted my vendors, and took all my stress away. I did not have to worry about a thing with Erin by my side. Erin took full control with the vendors and setting up all the details at the wedding.
Erin personally made sure I was taken care of at all times and managed to also make sure the wedding was running smoothly. She constantly checked in with me and made me feel secure the entire day.
Erin did everything from setting up the venue and communicating with vendors, to shaking out my wet wedding dress from the rain, collecting all personal items from the wedding, and helping bridal party with any and all needs.
Erin setup before the wedding and cleaned up at the end. She made sure all my belongings from the wedding returned safely to our hotel room. Not only was everything returned but also the room was set up with flowers, a heart shape on the bed, champagne, candles, our gifts and my veil hanging beautifully on the door. I was so impressed and still am.
I highly recommend Wedding Planning Plus. They made the most important day of my life that much more special and perfect!
We hired Shannon for our day of wedding coordinator. She was beyond exceptional! Shannon reached out to me a month before our wedding to get started on our wedding day itinerary and was so organized! She helped us leading up to our big day and then were so incredible the day of our wedding. She was always calm and positive. Her and her assistant Tommie went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect! If anything went wrong, I never found out! Hiring Shannon was the best decision we made!
We love Shannon! She saved me from becoming a bridezilla. Shannon is very knowledgeable and nice. I don't know much about American wedding traditions and she explained everything to me clearly and patiently. She also gave us a lot of great ideas that made our wedding a very classic one with lots of wonderful memories. Her suggestions were very valuable and helpful, so listen to her! Shannon also did a great job planning within our budget. On the day of wedding, she was with us the whole day from the morning to the end of the day, and she helped us gathered our stuff and put them in our hotel room. Without her, we couldn't enjoy our wedding so much. She's the best!
I used Wedding Planning Plus for my day-of coordination for my wedding. In the beginning, I was speaking with the owner Shannon and she was beyond helpful in answering all my questions and was not pushy at all. When I finally decided to hire WPP for my big day, I went with a senior planner, since Shannon was a little more expensive and I wanted more than a junior planner. Unfortunately, things with that planner didn't work out and when we voiced our concerns with Shannon, she stepped right up and offered to work our wedding herself with no extra charge. She genuinely cared about putting my mind at ease and making us happy. She went above and beyond to remedy the problem and make the whole process easy and wonderful. She was on top of everything and always there for me when I had questions or needed advice. Even though she was just hired for the day, she took so much worry off of my plate even before the wedding. When the wedding day came, her and her intern Tommie were amazing. It poured all day and they were right on top of getting everything moved inside and set up like I would have liked it. They were there for me whenever I needed anything and just overall so awesome to be around. In the beginning my husband didn't think a day-of coordinator was worth it and after the amazing job Shannon did, we both know it was worth every penny!
We hired Melissa, one of the Junior Planners for our "day of" coordination. It was hands down the best money we spent for our wedding. I have a very type-A personality, and I knew that if couldn't control everything the day of my wedding and be in all places at once to take care of all potential problems, I needed someone else to be, so the rest of my family and friends could relax. That is exactly what Melissa did for us. Wedding Planning Plus has unique "day of" coordination services, that start a month before the wedding. We actually started approximately 2 months before the wedding, setting up the timeline of the day, pick ups, drop offs, photo sessions, first dances, toasts, etc. Needless to say, this was being changed right up until the day before the wedding, but Melissa was endlessly patient with me. She made individualized timelines for each member of my wedding party and family members so everyone knew where they had to be all day. Our wedding day flowed seamlessly. We were actually ahead of schedule most of the day. The vendors all knew where they had to be, as she had contacted them all and confirmed the timeline with them as well. I've been to weddings where limos have been hours late picking up the wedding party, and other disasters have happened, as I was determined for that not to happen at my wedding, and thanks to Melissa, it didn't. Also, with the added complication of it pouring on my wedding day, there was always someone there to follow me around and hold my dress up out of the mud all day, which I was endlessly thankful for. I could not have gotten through my wedding day without her. I'm an attorney, and leading up to my wedding day, there just wasn't enough time in a day to accomplish all that needed to be done- thank god for Wedding Planning Plus and Melissa!!
Our wedding was very big with about 242 total guests (we invited around 287). I planned most of it on my own and was becoming extremely stressed out the last 6 weeks tying up lose ends, making last minute phone calls, and feeling confident that everyone would be going exactly how I envisioned it and planned. Because of me starting to lose my mind, I hired Aissa as a "day of coordinator" and it was the best decision I made! I regret not hiring her sooner as a wedding planner because I would have enjoyed the planning process much more. She literally took care of everything from steaming the bridesmaids dresses, to contacting and working with vendors to create a timeline, to reapplying a fake eyelash when it fell out (she had glue, tweezers, and mascara on her!), to making sure Kyle and I spent as much time partying and enjoying our day as possible. I can't even list everything she took care of because it was so much, Little things such as making sure the cooler for the trolley was filled with ice and beverages for after the ceremony...every little detail counts and she was ON POINT! I e-mailed every day with questions and was probably annoying because I tend to be a bit neurotic, but she always responded and was very patient and kind. She took care of everything I could possibly think of!!!!!! There isn't one single complaint....she even met me at the church for rehearsal on the day of her birthday celebration to hand deliver the itinerary and made sure the guys and girls knew who to match up with. She is absolutely wonderful!
From my perspective Shannon Whitney did a superb job from start to finish. On the wedding day, she was present in the background working seamlessly and tirelessly to make sure everything went off perfectly as planned ... and it did!

Working with the Wedding Planning Plus team was simply phenomenal. It was evident from our first conversation with Shannon Whitney that we were working with a seasoned pro. She quickly and efficiently counseled us through choosing a venue, DJ, florist, caterers, etc. But, what really made an impression on us was the authentic interest that Shannon had in making our wedding day perfect for us. She provided options and ideas, but when she felt that a certain element would help produce the experience we were looking for, she took the time to walk us through her vision. For example, she suggested that we do a “first look” in order to be able to spend more time with our guests after the ceremony. Who knew? It was a fantastic idea!
Melissa Jacobson was our day-of coordinator. But, she was so much than that. A month before the wedding, right as the pressure and stress started to build, Melissa stepped in and coordinated all of the last details with ease. Each week when we spoke on the phone, I came armed with an agenda. But, there was no need because Melissa was always two steps ahead of me. Our conversations were so efficient, that we would end up just laughing and chatting excitedly about the wedding day.
Our wedding was in Lake Placid, NY in late October, and it was a dream come true. Yes, it rained. Yes, someone locked me out of my room. Yes, there was a completely over-the-top wedding guest. But, I had not a worry in the world. Melissa was there at every turn, taking care of all of the details, large and small. She was cool and collected the entire time. The wedding party and our moms raved about Melissa’s famous agenda and what a phenomenal job she did. And, I don’t want to ruin the surprise for other couples, but Melissa and her intern put an extra special touch on the day that we were so happy to come back to after the reception.
Wedding Planning Plus met all of our expectations. Our wedding was perfect, and perfectly us.
We used Wedding Planning Plus to help with day-of coordination for our wedding. Both Samantha (the owner) and Ginny Beigel (our planner) were incredibly helpful and really easy to work with. Starting about a month before the wedding, Ginny skyped with us once a week to make sure everything was on track. She contacted all our vendors and made sure they were doing what they were supposed to do. Any time we came across something we weren't sure about, we asked Ginny to take care of it. And she did!
I really feel like Ginny and her assistant Alli went above and beyond our expectations. They carried chairs from the ceremony site to the reception tent, they lit candles, corralled guests, and did about a million other things. Literally nothing went wrong on the day of the wedding and I'm sure it's mostly because of the excellent, professional care that Ginny and Alli took.
I recommend them with great conviction. This company seems great and honestly it's super reasonably priced given how much they do for you. It was so wonderful to be able to relax on the wedding day and just celebrate with my family and friends, knowing Ginny was taking care of everything.
Shannon worked with us on planning our wedding and she was phenomenal! She was very flexible in meeting up with us during our busy schedule and making sure we stayed on budget. We explained the type of wedding we wanted and recommended vendors that were above and beyond what we could have hoped for.
As the groom, we had decided on a country club venue before deciding to get a wedding planner and were in the process of signing a contract with them. Shannon advised my fiance at the time that there was a new venue opening up that she should look at. Personally, I did not want to keep looking but was I sure happy that she did. The new venue at 90 State was PHENOMENAL. Without Shannon's guidance we could have not had the amazing wedding that we did.
If you are on the fence about getting a wedding planner or think it costs to much, I want to tell you that SHE WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY. The entire wedding planning process was not as stressful and Shannon was there with us every step of the way.
Thank you Shannon and everyone at WPP for their excellent service and attention to detail.
Aissa Murray was my day of wedding coordinator and my experience was simply AMAZING! I cannot express how thankful I am for all Aissa did to help make the days leading up to my wedding and my wedding day so perfect!
Aissa was my right hand lady and there wasn't a request that she wasn't all over! She was always 5 steps ahead of everything and I couldn't have survived my wedding day without having her by my side! From holding my flowers, my dress, putting band-aids on my blisters, and just being there in case i needed anything. Aissa really went above and beyond to make sure you were happy with all your vendors and throughout the planning process!!! As an example, I was very unhappy with my hair and makeup trial 2 weeks before my wedding and Aissa met me at the salon and immediately starting researching to find me someone that could provide me with the look I was going for. She was able to find me a hair and makeup artist and met me at the salon for a trial. I LOVED my make-up and hair and was so happy that she was able to find me someone who gave me the look I had dreamed of for my wedding!
Aissa also helped me find a bakery to bake me cookies as a favor the day before my wedding!! She even went to pick the cookies up for me and packaged them to have ready for my wedding day! Aissa is so thoughtful, caring, and really puts you first to ensure your day is just as you had planned. I can honestly say NOTHING went wrong on the day of my wedding and Aissa was the best investment I could have made for my special day!!! Go with Aissa and Wedding Planning plus, I promise that this service will make your wedding day seemless and stress free!!! Also, Aissa was definitely a friend in this entire process and it really felt like she was part of our family! Thank you again AIssa and Wedding Planning plus, you are amazing at what you do!!!
Whoa - I didn't even read all of the comments on this page (which, aren't shockingly, are amazing) and I still am beyond thrilled at my Wedding Planning Plus experience. My wedding day, the most important day of my life, would not have been as full and rewarding if it were not for Aissa Murray. She is truly the best thing that could have happened to me (besides my husband, I suppose).
There were so many things I found out about from my husband and MOH and mother that happened on our wedding day that I never even knew about. The entire day was designed around making my life as stress free as humanly possible. I was sheltered from all non-essentials.
I didn't even step foot in the venue, the NYS Museum (also amazing), before walking down the aisle. Aissa oversaw everything; favors, tables, flowers, decorations. She was right there with me every step of the way. She fixed my veil for pictures - held my flowers - made sure everyone was where they needed to be. She walked my friggin' flower girl down the aisle for crying out loud!!!
Every gift and decoration was waiting for us in my hotel suite when we got home that night, accompanied with a bottle of champagne and rose petals leading to the bed. Like, REALLY?!
I was having a breakdown the day before the wedding, Aissa sent me over a care package with a note: "Relax and enjoy - tomorrow you marry your dude!" I have that hanging on my refrigerator.
Aissa was such a huge part of such a huge day. How could a complete stranger care just as much as I do about the day going flawlessly? There are no words for how grateful I am.
