Wedding Day At Ease

Hiring Wedding Planning Plus for our wedding day was by far one of the best decisions we could have made! We were really on the fence of even hiring a day of coordinator and boy are we glad we did. The day would not have gone so smoothly without Eliza and the rest of the team we had for our special day. Eliza was tentative to everything we could have needed throughout our day and for the most part a head of it all. Everything from the wedding day nerves to fixing my dress, having shoes available to me immediately (We hiked a mountain for our ceremony) Eliza was there. All of our wishes throughout the day that we made clear we wanted to happen.. happened. There was no stress for any part of the process and everything we worried about prior Eliza ensured it would be taken care of.

Incredible Experience!!

Shannon, and the rest of the Wedding Planning Plus team, were absolutely instrumental in our perfect wedding day!! We used their Wedding Day Coordinator package and could not be happier that we did! Shannon met with us twice before in the month leading up to our wedding day and made decisions and planning that seemed so complicated and stressful an absolute breeze. Honestly, in our first preliminary meeting with her when she explained all her services, she listed things we hadn't even thought of doing and we knew right then that we needed to book them and book them fast! On the day of the wedding, our whole WPP team made our space an absolute vision! It was everything we ever imagined and more! Shannon was with me every step of the way including printing out itineraries for all of our families and members of our wedding party, keeping me calm and assuring me at all moments that we were on schedule, and even putting my veil in right before the ceremony. She really heard everything we said about timing and made sure we maximized dancing (which was very important to us). She is an absolute delight to work with and honestly, she felt more like an old friend than a wedding coordinator. I can鈥檛 even imagine all of the things they did behind the scenes to make our wedding day the best day of our lives. If you鈥檙e looking for a planner or coordinator, look no further!

Shannon and Wedding Planning Plus allowed us to have a stress-free wedding day!

We are so grateful to Shannon and the rest of the Wedding Planning Plus team for helping us bring our dream wedding to reality! We hired Shannon in January 2021 for our October 2022 wedding as a partial planner. Shannon helped us find some of our most important vendors, like our caterer, entertainment, and rentals, and she was also a big help when it came time for us to figure out how to articulate our vision for the day. While her help leading up to the day was great, it was really the wedding coordinating services that allowed us to sit back and enjoy our wedding day. Shannon and her team took care of absolutely everything, and we can honestly say, our wedding day was probably one of the most stress-free days of our lives! We are so grateful to Shannon and her team and could not recommend them more.

Hi, I'm Shannon! Upstate New York has been my home for my entire adult life. I鈥檓 so grateful to live and work in such a beautiful part of the country. I grew up right near Lake George and currently live outside Albany with my husband and our three rescue pups. I have run 15 marathons (and counting), love East Coast IPA's, and my iPod is stocked full of music from my favorite band (Phish!).

I started planning weddings in 2007 and during the last 13+ years I have seen more and more couples looking to break the cookie cutter mold and plan a completely unique celebration for their family and friends. That鈥檚 why I love getting to know my couples and building them a special event that is expertly crafted and authentically them.

It鈥檚 one of the most important days of your life, shouldn鈥檛 it feel authentically yours?
