Shannon and her team are so easy to work with
I'm not even sure where to begin. Shannon and her team were amazing.
We decided to work with Shannon in October 2019 for our October 2020 wedding. Well.. the pandemic happened and there were a lot of unknowns but Shannon was encouraging, realistic and committed to our vision.
We decided we would postpone it to May 2021. With most of our other vendors we had to go through their calendars to match up availability. With Shannon, we pretty much let her know the date we had in mind and she said she would have staff available. After postponing, the event guidelines changed multiple times. We were so thankful we had Shannon by our side to navigate through the situation.
Our wedding day couldn't have run more flawlessly if we tried. We felt so relaxed and comfortable knowing that our wedding was essentially in the hands of Shannon, Alex and Jennifer. We loved that we didn't have to really "deal" with any issues the day of.
We would 100% recommend Shannon and her team with full confidence and we promise you would not regret it.Sent on 06/01/2021

So happy that we found Shannon for our wedding this year. After so many changes and unknowns, she was able to help us with every detail, and brought things to our attention that we would have never thought of. Throughout the whole process she was very responsive through email and phone. We never felt overwhelmed or pushed in any sort of direction, she was truly there as a support system to us whenever we needed. So thankful for her and her team!Sent on 10/30/2020

The Organized Best Friend You MUST have to Plan Your Day
I am (was?) a covid bride. Originally Shannon and her team had started about 14 months prior to our wedding date planning a spectacular, bespoke 100 person 3-day wedding at a personal home on Seneca Lake in June of 2020.Sent on 10/27/2020
The vendors carefully matched (worth her weight IN GOLD - Grateful Dead Cover band - check; Brunch from Elf and the Oak, check; perfectly curated florist matching our style perfectly - check), the logistics sorted out (we live in Boston), and therapy sessions at the ready, we were about to send out our invitations but then decided to be better safe than sorry.
Even though we had to change our wedding to an "anniversary" celebration in 2021, Shannon was at the ready, reading contracts, communicating and re-arranging vendors, and making sure that every i was dotted and t was crossed for 2021 for the "anniversary" party.
Did I mention she then CONTINUED to plan our micro-wedding in June 2020? While our wedding style changed, Shannon's regular check-ins, original vendors, and practical guides made our 12 person wedding perhaps even more SPECIAL!
Now it makes me a little sad to write this, as it was not the 2020 Wedding we imagined, but we are grateful for having hired Shannon and if we had to do it again, we would.

Hi, I'm Shannon! Upstate New York has been my home for my entire adult life. I’m 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’s why I love getting to know my couples and building them a special event that is expertly crafted and authentically them.
It’s one of the most important days of your life, shouldn’t it feel authentically yours?
Hi I'm Kate! I have the pleasure to work for Wedding Planning Plus since 2015, helping so may couples experience their most amazing wedding day!
Hi I'm Aissa! I have a background in special events catering, but since I started with Wedding Planning Plus in 2013 I have loved the personal experience I get working directly with my couples.
Shannon Whitney and team are true pros! We Cant wait to work together again!
The wedding planners are top-notch. Super organized and attentive to the wedding couples we have worked with at our venue.
Wedding Planning Plus has served as the planner at several weddings at the Historic Barns of Nipmoose, and we have been very impressed with their services. Most recently Aissa Murray worked as the planner for two highly successful weddings. Both weddings were unique and required a great deal of thoughtfulness and organization on the part of Wedding Planning Plus.
