Shari and her Team were incredible!!
Shari and her team were absolutely fantastic, professional, pro-active, kind and extremely responsive! My husband and I planned and replanned our wedding 3 times due to multiple unforeseen circumstances, one being the COVID pandemic. Shari never flinched - she remained calm, composed, and poised through it all and brought every solution to the table. She made herself constantly available to us, even if it was just a text update or quick call to put my mind at ease or update me on the most recent guidelines. Shari's relationships with other Pittsburgh vendors was very impressive. We had to re-book hair and make-up three times and Shari found me reputable and fantastic vendors time and time again. When C19 struck, we had to change our venue. Her ability to grasp our vision for the wedding at two venues was remarkable. Shari saw through my eyes and brought us the wedding of our dreams. On the wedding day, Shari's team (and Linda Chang) were fantastic. Most importantly, Shari is a kind, wonderful person who truly cares about her brides/couples and creating a beyond special experience for them. She does this with professionalism and poise, and always with a smile on her face. She is also very funny and a please to be around! I will 100% look for a reason to work with Shari and her team again.Sent on 08/24/2020
Perfectly Planned by Shari's reply:Sarah, although we had to plan and re-plan your wedding multiple times due to life situations and COVID, I couldn't image a more enjoyable experience on my end. You and John are such a wonderful couple that are truly meant to be together and you have created the perfect family. I have missed you now that the wedding is over, but I look forward to planning more celebrations with you in the future.

Best decision of the wedding planning
Shari was an amazing wedding planner. She has excellent ideas & suggestions. My daughter had a vision for her smaller COVID wedding & Shari & her team helped plan & execute it perfectly. As MOB, I had zero stress on the wedding day. What I really appreciated was the way Shari communicated with the vendors for us. That saved a lot of time and stress for the bride and me.Sent on 10/19/2020
Shari is very personable and easy to get along with. On the wedding day, they got everything done but were invisible. They were everywhere getting all the details accomplished but you didn’t really notice them; they are that good. Best wishes to all future brides and grooms during this crazy time. My advice is to hire an excellent wedding planner like Shari Zatman to make your life easier and end up with a perfectly planned and executed gorgeous wedding & reception
Perfectly Planned by Shari's reply:Thank you for your kind words! My goal is to allow you to relax and enjoy being the Mother of the Bride on the wedding day and be a part of all of the moments without worry or stress. I am so glad that our planning and management allowed you to have that on Annie and Corey's wedding day! You and your family were a joy to be with!

Shari made our COVID wedding a success!
Shari helped us first with our original 250+ person New Years bash plan, and then create an entirely new vision for a 30 person COVID wedding instead. She was flexible and understanding, pivoting to adapt to the last minute changes and requests that are inherent with a COVID wedding. I was so grateful to have her guidance and support through the worst time for a bride to plan a wedding.Sent on 10/26/2020
Shari was organized and made sure all of the boxes were checked. She managed multiple inputs from different people in order to ensure the best outcome for the wedding, and for what the bride and groom wanted. I was the type of person that wanted to participate in and be in the loop on all activities and communications during the planning, and Shari completely accommodated that. But she also took over decision-making, ensuring everything went well the week of the wedding when I started feeling decision-making/wedding exhaustion! She is wonderful at accommodating the needs of the couple. I trusted her completely with it, and the day turned out beautifully. Personally, she was a pleasure to spend time with during the planning activities. Her teammates joined us for the wedding weekend and were wonderful to have with us as well.
Perfectly Planned by Shari's reply:Annie, spending time with you and Corey and your families during the wedding planning was absolutely my pleasure. I always looked forward to travelling to Cincinnati for our planning meetings together. Your family made me feel warm and welcome in your hometown and I felt like an extended part of your family by the time the wedding day came. As a bride, you handled the options and planning pivots we needed to make with such elegance and kindness which is to be highly commended. Being with your group for the entire wedding weekend, certainly brought to light why everyone you have touched in your life loves and cares for you so much.
Shari is wonderful to work with. She is very professional and experienced with great attention to every detail of the event. We had the opportunity to work with Shari on a very large Indian wedding and would highly recommend her if you are looking for the the best of event planners.
