“”Day-of Coordinator” is probably the world’s greatest misnomer for Shannon Gonzalez’s work on our wedding. Unless, of course, “day-of” actually means two months prior! We hired Shannon mainly because my mother (and I) did not want to have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding; little did we know we would be getting someone who would help keep us on track throughout much of the planning process, asking questions we didn’t even realize we needed to be asking or thinking about. In this sense, we got a fantastic deal in Shannon.
As with others who have commented on here, our wedding day was smooth as could be. Was it the impeccable planning? Was it Shannon’s behind-the-scenes work on the day of the wedding?? Who knows! And perhaps that is the sign of someone who is truly talented. To you and to your guests, everything just seems to go beautifully. What better gift than a smooth, easy, stress-free day.
And to boot – Shannon is just as sweet as can be. Warm, effervescent, and full of Southern graciousness.
I knew we had made a good choice when – truly – every vendor exclaimed, “We love Five Grain!” when I told them of our wedding coordinator choice. The day – the whole planning process – was better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you, Shannon!”
