About The Whole Shebang

The Whole Shebang continually strives to help you create a one-of-a-kind, beautiful, and creative wedding in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

We absolutely love what we do and there is a real joy in the process of creating a relaxed and fun environment that allows a bride to create her own unique vision of a perfect wedding day. Our job is to pull together every aspect of your vision and handle all of the details so that your wedding day is beautiful, memorable, stress-free, and uniquely YOURS! Whatever your dream, we will help you find innovative ways to make it happen, and guide you every step of the way.

We love the common thread among brides who choose to get married in the mountains. Whether you live in the area, vacationed here growing up, or attended college, there is a deep-rooted connection with nature, the outdoors, and the beauty of the High Country. Whether it's the dream of a casual, rustic backyard BBQ, or a glamorous black tie affair, the one thing all of our clients seem to have in common is that they are creative, soulful, and eager to incorporate the majestic landscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains into the overall vision of their wedding day and share it with their closest friends and family.

We invite you to take a look around, check out the blog, read reviews, browse our facebook and instagram and get a feel for the wedding planning services offered by the The Whole Shebang. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you!

    We only wish we could put into words how happy we are about our choice to ask Meris Gantt and The Whole Shebang team to help us make our daughter's mountain wedding dream come true. Everything about the experience - email conversations, planning phone calls with the bride in Phoenix, questions about vendors, decorating, and keeping track of a million details - turned out to be doable and pleasant because of Meris and her kind, thorough expertise. We purchased the full package so we could navigate all the details with help, and we would do it again in a heartbeat. On the day of the wedding at Overlook Barn, Meris and her team did everything seamlessly. Her calm manner and attention to detail allowed us to enjoy every moment. When we realized we might need to make a last minute rain plan, Meris explained the options and helped us think through how we might handle the unexpected. When the sun broke through the hour before the wedding, The Whole Shebang team celebrated with us and then lead us through each step of the ceremony process. Our daughter, son-in-law, family, and guests could not stop saying how perfect and fun everything was. We owe so much of that to Meris and her team. We will always be thankful for this amazing experience.

    Truly the BEST wedding coordinator!

    One of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process was choosing to work with Meris and The Whole Shebang. We went with the month of planning package and are so glad we did! From my first initial phone call with Meris, I felt confident we would be well taken care of. Leading up to our wedding, she was always available to us whenever we had any questions and communicated/organized everything so well with our vendors that we truly didn't have to think twice about anything! Her and her team are so fun to work with and made sure we were well taken care of on the day of our wedding. They truly went above and beyond for us, which we were so grateful for. I can honestly say not one thing went wrong on our wedding day and we can thank Meris and her team for that!

    I can't even express how happy I am that I chose Meris and her team at The Whole Shebang for the coordination of my wedding weekend. My mother-in-law hired Meris for the rehearsal dinner planning and I chose TWS Month-Of planning contract and we were both so happy with everything. Both days went incredibly smoothly (if there was a "fire" she had to put out I don't even know about it, which is amazing!). Meris is truly a joy to work with and I felt like she became part of my family over the past few months! She has a fantastic relationship with all the vendors in the Boone/Blowing Rock area (I knew I'd made the right choice when I told vendors who my coordinator was and they immediately said "I LOVE Meris!") and she worked so well with everyone, which in my case was a bit more difficult because one of our biggest vendors were family members of mine. She is somehow laid back but also super on top of things and put everyone at ease with her competence all weekend. Meris, I can't even say how much I appreciate everything you did. THANK YOU!! (Can we do it all again??)
