Based in Northampton, Massachusetts, Aligned Events is a full-service wedding planning, management, and design company serving couples in The Berkshires as well as all of New England and New York. Aligned Events was formed to help couples celebrate joyfully and authentically.

Experience

Shannon Cruise is the owner and lead planner of Aligned Events. She is a native of New England and has lived all over the region planning bespoke events. Shannon has been planning events and working in the hospitality industry for over fifteen years. Shannon's lengthy experience has gifted her the opportunity to plan and manage events at a variety of unique locations - farms, islands, fields, private homes, beaches, and countless beautiful venues throughout the region. Her commitment to each wedding stems from a deep appreciation for the couples she works with and the joy of seeing couples experience a stress-free wedding that exceeds their dreams and visions.

Services Offered

Aligned Events offers wedding planning, wedding management, and design and styling services.

Planning services are fully customized and are collaborative in nature. Utilizing lengthy experience, pro vendor relationships and detailed planning systems, Shannon and her team keep planning on track, calm, and organized. Wedding Management is a great fit for the couple that wants to plan the majority of their wedding themselves but needs support tying together all their planning and managing the weeks leading up to the wedding. Planning and management services all include comprehensive day-of management to execute the carefully crafted plans and provide support to couples as they embark on a lifelong journey together.

In the era of COVID-19, Aligned Events is also working with couples who have had to adjust their wedding plans and helping them navigate the logistical challenges related to wedding planning during a crisis. By evaluating each couple's priorities and thinking creatively, Shannon and her team are able to provide guidance and paths forward towards hosting a celebration that allows for the joy of a wedding while keeping loved ones safe.

    Seriously, look no further.

    I'm not really sure how people get married WITHOUT Shannon, and I do mean that literally. We brought Shannon on thinking it would be nice to have someone dedicated to navigating venue delivery on the day of our wedding, we did not realize that Shannon would soon become a cherished member of our family. Countless emails were sent over the next few months, many of them just to ask, WWSD (What Would Shannon Do). She was infinitely patient and sweet with us, and when she finally left the venue the night of our wedding, I was more sad to see her leave than I was many of my beloved family and friends. That is not hyperbole! Shannon is extremely LGBTQIA/NBPOC friendly (and probably POC friendly in general, I'm sure, but my wife and I only belong to those two minority groups) and most importantly, patient, kind and nice. She was worth far more than we paid her, and far far more than we could ever afford. Someday she will realize she's undercharging her clients substantially for the level and quality of services she renders and you'll want to book her before that happens, so do not delay!

    Incredible to work with!

    We brought Shannon on to help with the last few steps of wedding planning and day-of coordination and we cannot stress how much she helped. Everyone who came in contact with her - from family and friends to other vendors - mentioned how great she was to work with. My only regret is not working with her sooner in our planning process!
