Simply amazing - professional, experienced, compassionate!
We were utterly impressed and pleased with your help, guidance, direction, and overall awesomeness. So many guests, family members, and attendees were impressed by the ease, stress free, enjoyable, and seamless experience during an event with some 150 people that involved many different logistical challenges.Sent on 06/03/2019
It struck us how pleasant you were to interact with - always in charge, comfortable in knowing what you were doing, and confident in your responses. This had an impact on the attendees as we all had the feeling that everything was handled, taken care of, addressed, or in good hands. A simple example was the wedding gifts which you and your team put into a family member's car - very professional, very low stress, very confident/calming that you knew what to do .... the only thing needed were the family member's keys and the rest was handled without any stress. This is but a small example of the multitude of inquires, questions, demands, and insecurities you and your team handled with grace, patience, and understanding.
Bottom line is this - we were super impressed and surprised by how stress-free and therefore enjoyable you made the experience for us and the guest. Everybody I have spoken with said that they had nothing but positive things to say, that they enjoyed the wedding, management of the transitions, and ease of the evening (from the guests' experience) - all while you and your team worked from early until late so that we could relax and enjoy a special moment.
We are very appreciative of your experience in these matters, your calm mastery, and confident demeanor. I'd say that anyone doing this without your help is cutting themselves way, way short! I don't want to speak for the bride and groom, but she essentially conveyed to me that she would have been sunk without you and that she is very impressed and amazed by your expertise, kind and patient demeanor.
We want to thank you and your team for providing all of us with opportunity to enjoy such a great day to the fullest extent. This would not have been possible without you. We thank you!!

Stephanie Shaul for the Wedding Win!
Let me begin by saying that Stephanie is the best investment you will make towards your wedding day and an enjoyable engagement season. From the beginning, Stephanie was extremely engaged with my wedding despite having several other upcoming weddings on her calendar simultaneously. She was responsive to every little question whether nine months out or one week away, and she always communicated her out-of-office dates and other wedding commitments well in advance, and these commitments never jeopardized my planning. She always made me feel like I was her one and only bride!Sent on 04/29/2019
As some of the other reviews have noted, Stephanie really cares for her couples and their families. She is able to tactfully and kindly manage differing interests and opinions from various parties (bride and groom, parents, bridal party, guests, etc.) and somehow please everyone in the end. She was extremely valuable in helping us manage our budget, even after I had overcommitted on some expenses. Although the guest count was out of her control, she helped us identify controllable expenses and steer us back on track, and we ended up right under budget thanks to several creative ideas on her end. Additionally, she is well-connected with numerous vendors and can help negotiate the best rates.
On my actual wedding day, my AC unit broke and my nails got ruined, and as a result I had to show up three hours later than planned to the church. Despite this, neither my bridal party nor I missed a beat because Stephanie was able to accommodate these unforeseen hiccups into our schedule seamlessly. Our day was still unrushed and exactly as planned. When we arrived at our reception, Stephanie had appetizers waiting for us in a private room so that we could catch a breath and grab a bite before being introduced. She also ensured that our dinner plates were already prepared at our sweetheart table, so unlike most couples, we were actually able to eat peacefully at our reception. I never once had to visit the bar or buffet as my glass and plate were never empty! I had several bags and miscellaneous items with me during the day, and she ensured they were all transported to the right places and packed in our getaway car at the end of the night.
The gist of my experience is that Stephanie was on top of every single detail, even those I was unaware of. She is the only reason I could sleep in the weeks leading up to our wedding and the reason I could go relax and attend a wine-tasting the night before our rehearsal instead of pulling my hair out over last minute wedding details. I admit that my parents and I are “high maintenance” due to extremely high standards, perfectionism and staunch attention to detail. We were all immensely thrilled with the results of Stephanie’s hard work, and my mom said the wedding day was better than she ever could have imagined for her only daughter. We will sing Stephanie’s praises forever for such a memorable day for our family.

I would highly recommend Stephanie Shaul Events!
Once we began to plan a wedding in Durham, we knew we needed someone to help pull it all together since we were in a different city and the soon-to-be bride and groom were both in different states. And Stephanie Shaul Events came highly recommended! From the very beginning, we knew we made the right choice. Stephanie had such a calming presence in the midst of my many questions. We had such successful and fun planning sessions. She was there for every question that we had and had such wonderful solutions! We are so happy that Stephanie was there from the beginning to the end. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Stephanie! We will forever be grateful to her!Sent on 08/13/2019
Stephanie is thoughtful, thorough, and always pleasant! As a collaborating vendor, she kept me informed about all the aspects of the wedding. When I picked up our rental items, they were rinsed and carefully packed. I strongly recommend her services!
Very Professional and Highly Recommended.
Stephanie works some planning magic! We have combined efforts to make wedding dreams come true. While EventfulNC has props, they are only as good as the designer has vision. Stephanie has proved herself again and again to be professional and capable of meeting bridal visions or helping them create one.
