The best Wedding Planners Ever!!!
We can’t begin to express how appreciative we are of our wedding planner and her team. From the moment my now husband and I first met with Shawon, we knew she was the one for us! Her professionalism, bright personality, sternness and nurturing spirit immediately attracted us. For couples that are planning a wedding, A WEDDING PLANNER IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! & you do not need to look any further. SDS Events, LLC is the team for you!! I can’t stress that enough.Sent on 09/26/2019
Midway during the planning process, we took s job abroad and spent 9 months planning away from home. Shawon was there, checking in with us and making sure everything was in order. On the morning of the wedding, Shawon had beautiful flowers delivered to me. & she checked in with us continually. Tiara, Tiffany and Kayla never left my side on Our wedding day. The day couldn’t have gone any smoother than it did. My bridal party and guests fell in love with them and commended them on the excellent job they did with our wedding. I felt NO stress on wedding day. I was so calm knowing that I had an awesome team beside me. We deeply feel in our hearts that if we had not chosen SDS Events, LLC as our wedding planners, it wouldn’t have ran as smoothly as it did. These ladies are heaven sent. We will be returning for our future celebrations because we aren’t ready to let them go ❤️

Shawon ensured our wedding ran smoothly from start to finish - even our vendors gave her praises. From our first point of contact Shawon was timely and professional. We appreciated that she was upfront about pricing, deliverables, and expectations. As it got closer to our wedding date she was always responsive and exceeded our expectations. My husband and I were very pleased with her service and will surely be recommending her to others! Thank you SDS Events!Sent on 07/28/2019

If anyone knows me, you know I’m anal and a perfectionist in the nicest way possible lol. When I decided to get a wedding planner, I already knew I was going to do most of the work and just consult the planner for advice! The sole purpose was for them to execute my plans bc my life was hectic!!! When I tell you, that was NOT the case with SDS events!! After my first conversation with Shawon I knew I had to have her!! When we met in person, it felt like I’d known her forever!! She made my “extra-ness” feel normal lol! After that meeting my mind was at ease, I was relieved, and I didn’t feel like I needed to give her the blueprint to plan my wedding!!! Throughout the entire process I literally didn’t worry about a thing! I trusted her 100% and she never let me down! Her follow through was on point!!!!! If you’ve never met a stress-free bride, now you have!! After talking to other brides I would call Shawon and ask if I was suppose to do something or worry about something bc being stress-free is apparently abnormal and foreign!! She assured me I was good....and I really was!! Fast forward to my wedding day....everything that could’ve happened, happened! However, the entire team FLAWLESSLY executed my day!!! I gotta admit, I got a little nervous for about 2mins but it didn’t last long at all lol! To say the least, make sure you get you a planner that doesn’t crack under pressure, especially if it’s out of their control!!! If it wasn’t for Shawon, I’m not sure how I would’ve made it to the wedding day (probably stressed, in debt, and half crazy); and if it wasn’t for her entire team, ESPECIALLY Tia, I’m not sure how we would’ve made it through our wedding day! Tia not only made sure I was good at all times, but she took care the needs of my girls and my mother as well! When our guests mention how beautiful, well-organized, and amazing our day was they ALWAYS mention how on-point my planner and her team was (an entire month later and yes, guests are still talking about our wedding)!!! My husband and I are truly blessed to have had SDS plan our wedding! When my husband raves about an experience, it speaks volumes!!!! Please make sure you have a full-service planner and if you don’t choose SDS events, you’ll be doing yourself a disservice!Sent on 06/13/2019
