Perfect memories

Mary Shannon is lovely! She helped with our wedding and we could not have done it without her. She was my right hand. She made the event beautiful and helped make all the ideas I had in my head come true. She is patient- always smiling, great with the vendors- making sure everything is just right, creative and attentive. Most of all she became just like family. At a time that is stressful she is the person to have on your side!

Simply beautiful

Thank you for making our day more than we could have hope for. Everything was smooth and stress-free, and I owe it all to you!  You handled everything with grace and took time to check on all parties involved. I feel so lucky to have found you and look forward to sharing your name with friends that are getting married soon!

Amazing experience

Mary Shannon was such a joy to work with! She took my abstract ideas and turned them into the most picturesque evening that I could have ever imagined. To have her on our side was an asset that I recommend to any bride. She’s organized, kind, and extremely good at her job. Everything ran very smoothly and that is the biggest blessing you can ask for on your wedding day. I wish I could give her ten stars!

Completely unexpected

Mary Shannon was wonderful to work with! She helped us plan and organize our destination wedding in Montana. She is organized and great at communicating throughout the process. She quickly learned my taste and made wonderful suggestions. My mind was at ease with her on the job! She traveled to Montana to be on site and while there she handled countless tasks. She went above and beyond to make us feel at ease and comfortable, and I don’t know what I would have done without her diligence and thoughtfulness!

Wonderful Day

Mary Shannon was a delight to work with! I never worried about anything at all. I planned my wedding in 3.5 months (so it was quite the time crunch!) and Mary Shannon was the key to the success. She is professional, timely and a lot of fun to work with. I loved everything about my wedding, and hiring Mary Shannon was the best decision I made. I give her my highest recommendation.

Extremely Professional

Mary Shannon is awesome! I don’t usually fill out surveys because I feel people tend to use them as a venting tool when unhappy. But I’m making an exception for Mary Shannon. She is very professional, helpful, attentive and organized. Her involvement made the wedding so enjoyable for everyone. Would highly recommend her services! Thanks Mary Shannon!

My Dream Wedding

Mary Shannon was absolutely PHENOMENAL! She gave me my absolute dream wedding, was attentive to all the details I wanted, listened, and without a doubt delivered. She planned our destination wedding in rural Colorado, and despite the challenges of piecing together everything we needed, she made every aspect of our wedding work. On top of that, she was so much fun to work with, and I couldn’t recommend her enough!

Every Last Detail

Mary Shannon is a rock star! My wedding day was completely stress free and I know she was hustling in the background all day long. She kept everyone on track and executed everything that was important to my family and me. She did simple things like grab me bobby pins when my hair was falling and went above and beyond to make sure the men could watch football in the hotel on wedding day! She is super nice and comfortable and after our time together I consider her a friend. You can’t go wrong with MSR!
