Seriously THE BEST!!!
I wish I could tell all the future brides out there to hire Shannon! Ahh I know these review things all say the same thing, but Shannon from Simply Weddings CAN NOT BE BEAT! When you enter into this wedding planning process there are bound to be bumps in the road. It is just life! Vendors can be difficult for a variety of reasons and having someone who is in the business have your back is a lifesaver. Shannon was there when my invitations all got messed up, when my engagement ring exploded (yes it shattered into pieces, totally not making this up!), when my dad got sick the week before our wedding--- through all of these things Shannon helped me navigate, fix problems and make sure the day could still happen. She allowed me to focus on the things that really mattered (like being with my dad in the hospital, I seriously didn't need to lift a finger the last 2 weeks before our wedding) because she was there to tackle all those little things that come up. The day of the wedding she made sure everything was perfect so that I could just have fun. Also very important to know-- you will be talking to your planner A LOT through the process, so make sure you hire someone you like to talk to. Shannon is like a really good friend, she has grown into a friend as the months went on. Having trust in your planner allows you to relax and not miss a moment. Because the day will flash by (kind of like skydiving, you jump out of the plane and before you know it you are on the ground!) but you will remember how people made you feel. I'll always remember Shannon making us feel cared for-- it is obvious she cares deeply about each of her couples. Hire her, you won't regret it, I promise! :DSent on 11/02/2019

Excellent experience--would highly recommend!
We highly recommend Simply Weddings, LLC! Jonathan officiated our New Year's Eve wedding and we had a wonderful experience. He was flexible and responsive to our needs and did an excellent job of coordinating all of our family and friends during the rehearsal, as well as the day of the wedding. He was proactive in helping shape and develop our ceremony and we felt respected and listened to as we made adjustments to the ceremony together. We thank Jonathan for making our wedding day so special!Sent on 11/03/2019
Simply Weddings, LLC's reply:Thank you so much Kate! We are honored that you chose Jonathan to officiate your ceremony. He loved doing it!

I cannot recommend Shannon and her team at Simply Weddings enough, Shannon is incredible to work with! Shannon went above and beyond to help us plan our dream wedding; she is professional, friendly, responsive, and very organized. She was consistently available at all times via phone, text, in person, and email to coordinate all aspects of our wedding as well as answer my many many questions, no matter how minor of details my questions were about. We chose the full planning package and it was worth every penny spent due to Shannon’s meticulous preparation, planning, and execution of our wedding day.Sent on 10/01/2018
My husband and I really wanted us as well as our families to be able to enjoy our wedding day without having to worry about anything. Shannon and her team made this possible, they took care of every detail so we could all enjoy the day. Shannon was the contact person for all of our vendors and anyone involved in preparing our rehearsal, church, transportation, and reception the day of our wedding. She had an organized and user-friendly floor plan app that helped us organize a detailed seating chart for our large guest list of 400 people, and she also took care of securing our gifts and cards in a safe place for us after the reception. Shannon also donated our floral arrangements to a local assisted living facility that we chose, that was a very lovely touch and we were so happy that others could enjoy our flowers as much as we did! These things are just scratching the surface of how essential Shannon and her team were in helping us turn our dream wedding into a real-life fairytale! Shannon was an absolute pleasure to work with and she is a wonderful person! If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding planner I would say 110% that hiring Shannon will be the best decision you make to help your dream wedding become a reality!
Simply Weddings, LLC's reply:I can't believe our year of planning went by so quickly! I'm sincerely going to miss all of our planning sessions and vendor appointments :) I'm so glad that my team and I were able to bring your dream wedding to life!

Shannon and her team were worth far more than we paid them. My wife and I debated if we needed to hire a day-of-coordinator, and I can't imagine not having done so. Shannon did so much more than we expected -- in addition to creating a detailed day-of timeline and making sure everything ran smoothly on our wedding day, she was super helpful in the weeks leading up to the wedding. She alerted us to issues she saw within our contracts, she proactively introduced herself to our vendors and got key details from them, and she offered invaluable advice when we were struggling with decisions (because, you know, we’d never planned a wedding before). She told us at our rehearsal that it was time for us to stop planning and stressing and to just enjoy the events -- that she would take it from there -- and she made good on that many times over.Sent on 08/19/2018

Working with Shannon planning our wedding was absolutely fantastic. We hired her for the day-of-coordinating, but she really went above and beyond our expectations throughout the planning process. Shannon gave great ideas both creatively and logistically, and helped us bring our vision to life. I swear she always knew when I needed to ask a question and answered it before I could even ask it! The other vendors I used were impressed with her punctuality and ability to multitask as well. On the day of she was very helpful but really blended in to the crowd, very helpful in photos. The best part: Shannon helped line up a donation site for the leftover flowers at the location of my choosing. It's so sad to see your flowers go to waste but with her help we knew they were going to a good cause! Highly recommend Shannon and her team to assist with planning and organizing your wedding.Sent on 12/20/2017

I wish this scale went up to 10 starts because Simply Weddings was that fantastic. Hiring Shannon and the Simply Weddings team was THE BEST decision we made for our wedding. Shannon was with us every step of the way, completely saw our vision and made it a reality day of. My husband and I were able to enjoy the weekend and had complete trust and faith in Shannon to handle all of the (many!) moving pieces we had going on.
If you're debating what to do right now, stop reading this post and hire Simply Weddings immediately!Sent on 11/02/2017

Jonathan and Shannon Triggs of Simply Weddings LLC went above and beyond to help create our dream wedding! Jonathan and Shannon took the time to get to know my husband and I, and really listened to what our wishes were for our wedding. Jonathan wrote our wedding ceremony and tailored it to fit our personalities. He provided us with a beautiful and memorable ceremony that we will cherish for years to come. Jonathan also provided us with four premarital sessions, which were fun and very helpful. Shannon was very detailed oriented and helped us make our wedding dream a reality. She created the timeline for the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and entire wedding day. She provided not only vendors with the timeline, but also my wedding party. Shannon contacted and met with our vendors to discuss and verify wedding details (which I much appreciated since we live out of state). Shannon helped me pick out linens and decor for the wedding ceremony and reception. The day before the wedding and wedding day, Shannon met with my vendors to ensure that everything went smoothly. On our wedding day, Shannon not only coordinated the flow of the wedding, but her and her assistants did an AMAZING job adding the finishing touches to the ballroom and ceremony spaces. They even assisted with tear down of the wedding. Throughout the entire wedding process, Jonathan and Shannon were very easy to get a hold of, flexible, professional, and easy to get along with. We cannot thank them enough for the wonderful job that they did with our wedding! We HIGHLY recommend Jonathan and Shannon Triggs of Simply Weddings, LLC.Sent on 06/23/2017

Shannon was phenomenal from start to finish! We could not have asked for a better coordinator. Shannon has a great energy for what she does. She is spectacularly organized, prompt and a great communicator-especially since we were planning our wedding from a distance. She went out of her way to make personal trips and calls to our vendors to ensure our vision was executed. We felt very much at ease that everything was handled and had no stress on our big day. Shannon also helped seamlessly navigate the only hiccup of the day when our trolley broke down. We highly recommend Shannon and Jonathan. They are extremely professional and will make your day amazing!Sent on 06/05/2017

5 out of 5 meaning the best! You two were fantastic. Our wedding day was everything we could have dreamed of and more. Thank you so much for being a very important and special part of our day! I will be getting the photos from Tina soon and I will send some with you in them if she has not.Sent on 05/06/2017
Simply Weddings, LLC's reply:Thank you so much Amanda! We absolutely loved working with you and Casey being a part of your day. Both of your families were so kind and generous and we had a fabulous time talking to everyone. I'm sure all of the photos are absolutely beautiful as well. We wish you many blessings for the future... Please keep in touch.

My wife and I are INCREDIBLY grateful to have found and worked with Jonathan and Shannon Triggs of Simply Weddings, LLC. We originally signed on Jonathan to be our officiant and later signed on Shannon to be our wedding coordinator. Jonathan and Shannon are a great team and really went above and beyond what was expected. Jonathan listened intently to our requests and created a wedding ceremony that was personal and intimate to us as a couple. Jonathan also led several counseling sessions that were realistic and useful. Shannon’s dedicated work with our vendors ensured we had everything necessary to maintain the perfect wedding. Shannon also organized and executed all wedding day events without a hitch. Both Jonathan and Shannon added personal touches along the way that we will remember forever! My wife and I strongly recommend Jonathan and Shannon Triggs of Simply Weddings, LLC for your wedding.Sent on 10/16/2016

Words can't adequately express just how fantastic both Shannon and Jonathan were to work with when planning our August 2016 wedding. This dynamic duo really is a one-stop shop when it comes to ensuring your big day goes off without a hitch - and it's all done with an incredible kindness, personal attention, and an affordability that is hard to come by in the industry. No detail is too small and no task is too complicated for them to tackle. From their rapid responses to their helpful suggestions and creativity - Shannon and Jonathan were the epitome of "going above and beyond" in order to get the job done. Whether you're just looking for someone to be there on the day of the wedding or someone who can assist you from point A to Z, these two provide absolute peace of mind for any couple planning their nuptials. We were incredibly lucky to have found Simply Weddings and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone!Sent on 11/30/2016

"Our experience with Shannon and Jonathan was outstanding for the celebration of our wedding. The smallest of details were achieved from the decorations, to the wonderful flowers that were picked out. The table was set beautifully for our reception and the meal was outstanding. The photographs were wonderful and the entire day was completely unforgettable. Shannon and Jonathan made us feel like the day was entirely about us and we loved every moment of it. Thank you for a well planned and great wedding day!"

Jonathan and Shannon Triggs did an amazing job with our wedding ceremony! Jonathan, our minister, put a lot of time and energy towards creating the perfect ceremony that was personalized just for us. His execution and presentation, the day of, was flawless! Shannon did a fantastic job organizing the rehearsal and the ceremony, always paying close attention to the details. She was even there for me to make sure I looked absolutely perfect right before walking down the aisle! I couldn’t be more grateful for their hard work, flexibility, organization, and support. I would highly recommend Jonathan and Shannon for all your wedding needs!Sent on 03/13/2016

Simply Weddings was such a delight to work with. They exhibited the highest level of professionalism anyone could ask for, they listened to our desires and made them come to life even more than expected, but most of all I appreciated their patience and flexibility. The officiant had a great traditional/modern mix to his deliverance that made everyone in attendance feel comfortable, which was also most appreciated. When the time comes for my husband and I to renew our vows, we will most assuredly be utilizing the services of Simply Weddings.Sent on 03/08/2016

I had a wonderful experience with Shannon from SimplyWeddings! I planned most of the wedding myself, but Shannon was my day-of coordinator to keep everything running smoothly and calmly on the day of the wedding. She was always willing to jump in with ideas and advice if I needed it, and was there the whole day to help things be as seamless as possible. She was a calming presence and her staff of helpers were top notch as well. They made sure everything flowed, and they were in touch about what needed to be discussed, but overall just handled things without me needing to be aware of what was going on. Best moment of the day was when she had the song I hadn't thought to download onto my phone all set and ready for the musicians to play during our recessional, that was such a clutch moment! I also love the fact that the flowers from our reception and bouquets (except mine) were donated by Shannon and her team. They took point on that and had them delivered to a nursing home that night, which is just so great, and helps extravagant costs feel like less of a waste.Sent on 03/15/2018
Thanks so much Shannon!
