Amazing day of coordinator!

Sherryln was amazing through the whole process! I had a lot of the planning done, but she came on the scene the last month before the wedding and helped ease my mind and do the leg work of coordinating contracts and the rehearsal and wedding ceremony. Charlie and I are so grateful!!!

Highly Favored Events, LLC - Favored ME!!!

Highly Favored Events, LLC was an excellent match for planning our wedding day - as we reached out 6 weeks prior to our wedding after attempting to plan on our own. Sherryln Thompson offers several types of services based upon what YOU need! Whether you need help shaping your vision of your special day OR you know exactly what you want, she first works to understand how she can help YOU create and bring to fruition YOUR wedding day! She is organized, detailed, flexible, patient and so much more. Her calm demeanor eased my anxiety and she helped me prioritize to stay on task. Her expertise in event planning is evident in the multitude of resources and ideas she has access to, and when she doesn't know - she makes it her mission to find solutions that will work for YOU. The day of my wedding she handled all of the details and only involved me when necessary, which allowed me to relax and enjoy our day! My only regret is that I waited until 6 weeks out to work with her - I should have chosen Highly Favored Events, LLC from the start!

So Incredibly Grateful!

I can say with certainty that I could NOT have had such a beautiful wedding day without Sherryln and her staff. Planning a wedding is challenging enough, but planning one during a national pandemic was enough to make me pull my hair out. Sherryln is professional, prompt, and advocates for her client to have the day that they have been envisioning. In addition to helping get everything set up leading up to the event and the day of, she took care of me (the bride), make sure I ate and was hydrated, and did whatever she could to keep me calm through the whole process - and made sure that I sat down and enjoyed my day instead of thinking about things that she had more than covered. As if that wasn't enough, as I was getting dressed for the ceremony, the zipper on my dress BROKE. Before I even had time to panic, Sherryln made a needle and thread appear and literally sewed me into my dress. She literally saved the day, and I am so grateful. She was the budget and timeline guru through the planning process, the vendor coordinator extraordinaire, and her creativity helped me to have the experience that I wanted on in a cost efficient way. She made sure everything ran smoothly through the reception, ceremony, and reception, and there is no one else I would have wanted to bring me through such a special day. HIRE. HER. You will NOT regret it. Thank you for everything, Sherryln!
