There aren't enough superlatives in the English language to describe the all encompassing power house wedding planner that is Shana Sperling. Here are her five best attributes, which ought provide any bride with an accurate picture or what you're getting when you hire Shana:Sent on 10/20/2012
Flexibility- Shana knows how take lemons and make a high end lemon cocktail. Our cake was too expensive? No problem, here are 3 other vendors and this one is up and coming so grab them before they raise their prices.
Unsuspecting- Shana stands demure at 5'4, and she is relatively soft spoken. She is a kind listener and she is patient with you and your parents. But don't cross her if you're a vendor- she will tear you a new one and make you lick your wounds while she's getting an upgrade or a discount.
Timely- a whiz on her iPhone, responsive within minutes, you are never more than an email away from getting an answer- no matter how trivial the question. Shana doesn't take on more clients then she can handle, to be 100% committed to her clients.
Genuine- Im convinced Shana was a psych major in college. She has such a gift with people, she can handle surly in laws, stressed out brides, snarky vendors, and all personalities in between. At the end of my wedding night, my husband was acting up and being drunk, and I was devastated. She calmed me down, assured me how normal this was, and got me to recognize what a beautiful and successful night we just had.
Reasonable- Shana runs this business all her own, so her low overhead means you get her for the most affordable rate out there. I shopped 5 wedding planners before going with Shana, and her lower price never meant a compromise in quality of service. I hired Shana 3 months before my wedding date, hoping to hire her as a day-of planner. For a reasonable fee, Shana worked as my full-on coordinator for all the remaining details that had to be handled within those 90 days. I think I got the better end of that deal.
Hire Shana- you won't regret it!!

I recently got married and I owe it all to Shana! Being a former wedding planner, my expectations were extremely high for the person who I would want there on my wedding day. Although I knew Shana personally, there was a reason I asked her to be there for me, day of. I trusted her and I knew that she understood my style, personality, and attention to detail.Sent on 11/12/2012
I started speaking to Shana when it came time for me to order my save the dates. I had seen everything and just could not pick one design. I was all over the place. Shana custom designed a letterpress save the date which was simply chic. Over the next few months I would email her - obsessively, asking for her advice and opinion. A few months later, I contacted Shana in regards to ordering my invitations. Living on the west coast it was difficult to pick something out. She assured me that I would love my invitations - and she was right. My guests commented on the quality of them as well at the design. Shana just gets it! She is very well connected and is a very valuable resource. She will be conscious of your budget and is realistic.
I was hesitant at first to ask her to be there on my wedding day only because I knew that I would be a total bridezilla. No one - not even a friend - deserves to deal with a crazy bride. Yes, I will admit at times I was a total control freak (as we all sometimes might be). Knowing that Shana was there was extra comforting. I actually for the first time in my life didn't have a care in the world. I left the single most important day of my life in Shana's hands. She was absolutely the best. She is hard working, energetic, fun to be around, prompt, presentable, respectful - she is everything you want for your wedding day!
The days after my wedding - I cried. Only because everything was so perfect that if I had to do it all over again I would not change a thing.
Do yourself a favor - hire Shana so you can really REALLY enjoy your wedding. She will not let you down.

SHANA SPERLING - MY WEDDING TRAINER!Sent on 06/01/2012
When my fiance and I decided that we wanted a wedding that really felt like "us", we fell in love with The Green Building in Brooklyn, but that meant bringing in everything, from the caterer, to the tables and chairs, to the bar. And with less than a year to plan, I quickly became overwhelmed.
Shana came to the rescue with AMAZING recommendations for the big stuff like an officiant, music, photographers, stationery, and the smaller details like hair, makeup, and calligraphy. From the very beginning, Shana took charge of my large to-do list, and kept me on-time with the things that only my fiance and I could do (registering, guest lists). I called Shana "my wedding trainer" because she helped me stay on track with the things I needed to do so that I could enjoy the wedding weekend.
ON the big day, Shana and her staff were so organized. She made sure everything ran smoothly, only involved me in things she knew I would want to have a choice in, and she allowed me to enjoy the day and not worry about the details of setting up, or breaking down the space.
I would DEFINITELY recommend Shana Sperling Events to anyone that is overwhelmed by all of the choices, and could use expert advice on great vendors. I would also recommend Shana for day-of coordination of your wedding, as she smoothly managed so many moving parts at my wedding, freeing me to enjoy the day!
