    The best decision besides the groom! : )

    I would give Stephanie Shaul Events 1,000 stars if I could. From our initial meeting to our wedding day, and all the days in-between and even after, Stephanie was simply excellent. I 100% recommend her and could not think more highly of her.
    What initially struck me about Stephanie was her joy and enthusiasm, backed by her command of her profession. She not only brings with her an excitement for details and a true passion for her work, but also an aura of confidence and control. As someone who did not have a vision in mind when entering the wedding planning process, Stephanie listened attentively to my thoughts and disjointed ideas, and was able to organize, refine, and develop what turned into the most beautiful wedding day I could have imagined. I completely trusted her and she absolutely delivered.
    Working with Stephanie almost felt too good to be true. I absolutely think she can accomplish in one day what would take the average person 10. She is extremely responsive and always made me feel like the most important person on her schedule, even though she was always juggling multiple weddings. In addition, her organizational skills are incredible. As a somewhat type-A person myself, I was constantly blown away by her preparation. She brought a deck to nearly every meeting, providing options and images to bring an idea to life. When I could not decide on bridesmaids dress colors, she found photos of various colors and styles and cropped them into pictures with my wedding dress so that I could see what I liked best. No detail was too large or small for Stephanie to handle, and if it caused me stress in any way, she was determined to solve it. Unlike stories I had heard from friends about their wedding planners, she never made me feel pressured, was endlessly patient with me (I think she ended up taking a poll on her Instagram to help me decide colors), and made me feel valued and respected throughout the process.
    Stephanie was not only attentive to me, but she also clearly valued her relationship with every vendor. Having her in a meeting felt like being with a celebrity. Her knowledge of everything from obscure flowers to linen textures was encyclopedic. I think every vendor complimented her on her preparation, knowledge, and attitude.
    I ended up working with Stephanie for nearly two years due to the pandemic and I am so grateful to her. I will miss seeing her name pop up in my inbox but am happy to know she will be making other couples wedding day’s a dream come true. I only hope I encounter her again on the wedding circuit.
    I am envious of all who start their journey with Stephanie, you will be in the very best hands!

    A Joyful Experience!

    We recently used Stephanie Shaul for our daughter’s wedding July 31, 2021 and could not have been more pleased. We hired her for the entire process. The wedding was originally planned for September 26, 2019 and had to be rescheduled. She was attuned to our disappointment and unease, never once complaining about what COVID was doing to her business.Stephanie was a true godsend, working with all of he vendors when we had to find a new date.

    From the start, Stephanie was an absolute pleasure to work with. Stephanie listened to my daughter’s “vision” and brought it to life through endless cutting and pasting, creating a framework from which to build. Her organization and attention to detail took my daughter’s dream wedding and turned it into a reality.

    I quickly learned how knowledgeable Stephanie was of the entire industry. Her experience working at a florist shop gave her encyclopedic knowledge of flowers and their cost. With no frame of reference of our own, she expertly assessed bids and would let us know what was a fair price for all of the vendors.

    Stephanie was a great collaborator as well. Not only was she delightful to work with, I sensed that all of the vendors, even ones she did not know, enjoyed working with her.
    My son got married two years ago. We briefly met their coordinator. She was rude and condescending toward their venue event coordinator. It was uncomfortable to witness and totally unnecessary. She made their wedding planning awkward and unpleasant.

    Wedding planning is filled with so many details and decisions, working with someone who is intelligent, articulate and joyful takes a daunting task and makes it achievable.

    We really enjoyed our daughter’s wedding knowing that Stephanie was there behind the scenes expertly coordinating the entire event.At the end of the wedding, Stephanie took a massive amount of the flowers back to our house and put them all in vases, glasses, anything she could find before we got home. Talk about above and beyond!


    I’m not sure how our wedding measured up to other weddings that she has planned but she assured us that it was going to be the most beautiful, elegant, best day ever, and it was!

    Stephanie is amazing!!

    Stephanie is simply the BEST. She planned 2 weddings for my daughter due to covid and they were stunning and perfect in every way. She is so sweet and kind-a pleasure to deal with. Organized would be an understatement and has an excellent rapport with so many vendors that you have your pick of the best of the best. Her vision is exquisite and she knows how to get it done and on budget. Working with her was an absolute joy-100% would recommend.

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!
