Our wedding day was perfect! I didn't worry about anything (and from what I heard later there were definitely a few things that I could have spent time worrying about!) Shannon made us feel like guests at our own wedding. We spent no time running around taking care of last minute details because it was already taken care of. We knew exactly what to do and when to do it, because Shannon made sure it happened. She delivered a completely personalized wedding and catered to our every desire! Memory Lane Engagements made our wedding day relaxing, fun and completely stress free!!Sent on 06/09/2010

Shannon and her team made the day perfect. We didn't have to worry about anything. She was well organized and pleasant to deal with.Sent on 07/06/2009
We had done all the planning but the one thing we couldn't figure out was how to deal with the day of the wedding. Our reception vendor had Memory Lane Engagements as one of their recommended vendors and from the first phone call, we knew we were hiring the right person. She dealt with all our vendors, providing them and us with timelines and made sure that everything went as scheduled.
Shannon and her team made the day very un-stressful, everything flowed like clockwork and I highly recommend her for anyone planning a wedding. We couldn't have done it without her.

Shannon was wonderful to work with and so helpful. She was upfront about all fees and what would add additional fees and what wouldnt. She was very helpful through the whole process and I didn't have to worry about a single thing. Both my husband and I and our parents were able to relax and enjoy everything our day had to offer. She was the best money we spent and totally affordable. I highly recommend using Memory Lane Engagements. She helped make our wedding day absolutely perfect.Sent on 09/08/2009
Shannon Calabrese, owner of Memory Lane Engagments, is a true pleasure to work with. As a caterer, we have seen many wedding planners in action and we can say Shannon diplomatically and, with plenty of grace, operates on the client's behalf from the word "Go." She reviews contracts quickly, deciphers a client's needs vs. wants based on a thorough budget review and provides very personalized service to her customers, suggesting a range of professional services based on the budget review. In our experiences in working with Shannon, we have personally seen even the most reluctant client who likes to have "control" eventually relinquish the details to Shannon because they understood she operates from a point of integrity, honesty and strength on behalf of her customers. As a caterer who appreciates wonderful and organized wedding and event planners, I would suggest Shannon to anyone needing personal attention to details for their wedding or to someone who just needs to be able to turn over the reception day process to a wedding planner so they can enjoy the day.
