    The absolute best in the game!

    I had received a few referrals for Shannon Gail and I am beyond happy with the choice to use Shannon and her team. Seriously, look no further if you are looking for a planner or coordinator. The initial call with Shannon was wonderful - she explained all of the services they offer, their very specific timelines and processes, and how she would make sure that our planner was the right fit for us. This was right at the beginning of Covid when no one knew what would happen and Shannon made us feel very secure that they would 100% work with us in the event that we would need to change plans. We did the day of coordinator package and were paired with Kelly. From our first conversation, I knew Kelly was going to be amazing and there is no way I could have survived the last 8 weeks before the wedding without her! There are so many little details you don’t think of and Kelly was there each week with a detailed list of to-do items to keep us on track and ensure that the wedding day would be as easy for us as possible. Not only that, but Kelly was basically my therapist during that time, lol, and was always available if I just needed to vent, needed advice, or had a question. I always looked forward to our weekly calls – Kelly is such a fun, positive person and I enjoyed our chats so much! I felt so prepared going into our wedding day and having Kelly there allowed us to fully enjoy the day without thinking of where we needed to be or what had to happen next. Kelly and her assistant Melissa were so on point through the day getting vendors in and set up, keeping us and our bridal party on schedule, and being present and available whenever I needed anything. Despite getting married in the middle of Covid, everything was so spectacular and seamless thanks to Kelly and Melissa. Not only are they extremely detailed, professional planners, but they are also wonderful people, which made the whole experience that much better. I cannot thank Shannon Gail, Kelly, and Melissa enough!

    Best Wedding Coordinator

    As a type-A, proactive, and organized person myself, I knew I needed someone who would understand my personality and be able to perfectly compliment my wedding coordination needs. Samantha fit the bill PERFECTLY. She is so knowledgeable about weddings and the chicago wedding ecosystem. As someone who has not yet attended many weddings, she was so patient and responsive with all the questions I asked. Wedding planning can be stressful but she made the whole process much smoother, especially when it came to making key wedding decisions. Having Samantha as my wedding coordinator helped me truly relax and enjoy my wedding day. I cannot thank Samantha enough. THANK YOU!

    Great experience!

    Kelly was an absolute rockstar for my wedding! Every step along the way she was right by my side assuring me that everything is running smoothly. Specifically, I got an email the night before my wedding that the makeup artist I hired was sick and she was sending a backup at the wedding. Kelly called me immediately letting me know that we would have a code word on the wedding day if I didn't like it, she would let the artist know and we would restart until I liked it (I'm terrible with confrontation, and Kelly was willing to be the bad guy). I really didn't want my mom dealing with last minute questions on the day, and Kelly made it so my mom was able to relax and enjoy, and Kelly took care of all the last minute details. Couldn't recommend Shannon Gail more!!
