“Five Grain was recommended to me by a friend and former colleague who had Joan Cinquegrani do her day-of wedding handling. Without knowing it, another former colleague of ours Shannon Gonzalez was now working for them and as Joan was unavailable for our wedding date, I quickly requested Shannon. We paid for our wedding ourselves so we were only able to take them up on the day-of stuff.
Having said that – Shannon and Joan went above and beyond the call with getting us ready in time and making everything perfect. I swear, I have no idea if anything didn’t go perfectly, because of how amazing they were. The day of, Shannon was everyone’s hero and while I know her personally and love her, everyone else who realized she was the planner were so impressed.. Even my maid-of-honor, who is a do-it-all-herself type of person, was like, “What would you have done without Shannon?” I don’t even know….
Five Grain anticipates every problem and questions and has tons of resources. If you can afford more of their help, I guarantee your pre-wedding life with get tons easier. But even with the “cheapest” package, we got soooooo much help from them! And everyone at the wedding loved Shannon and her assistant, who would have stayed out of the way, I’m sure, but I kept introducing them and thanking them profusely.
Seriously, one of the best parts about our wedding planning AND day of!!!”
