    Shannon helped make our day absolutely amazing! She was incredible from the entire year and a half of planning, to the rehearsal, to our wedding day!

    The moment I met Shannon she put me at ease. She is professional, very organized, fun and most importantly kind. :) It was the best money we spent on our magical day. The ideas and concepts I had for our wedding day were executed so wonderfully and we got so many compliments on how our tent and green house was transformed into this wonderland. I slept so soundly the night before knowing she had our back and it was the wedding of our dreams.

    My husband and I were so happy that we chose Shannon as our wedding planner. From the time that we first met with her up until the big day, Shannon was extremely professional and organized, but also made the whole planning experience so much fun. She helped us stay on track with manageable, bite-sized "to-do" lists every time we met, so that by the wedding day (or even the month before), we got to relax and fully take in this special time in our life without any stress. I would HIGHLY recommend Shannon to anyone without hesitation!

    Shannon does absolutely amazing work! If you want your wedding day to run smoothly and to be stress free, I highly recommend hiring Shannon.

    My wedding day would not have been what it was without her help.

    Shannon is kind, friendly, professional, and extremely organized. She knows what she is doing and she does an amazing job!

    I'm really glad that my husband and I hired her, and I would recommend her services to all brides!

    My husband and I recently got married in Banff, Alberta. Our ceremony was at the St. Mary’s Catholic Church and the reception followed at the Buffalo Mountain Lodge.

    I wanted to take a moment to thank my wonderful wedding planner, Shannon Valente, as well as recommend her to those brides who are currently seeking a wedding planner.

    I was very nervous about hiring the perfect planner, and I interviewed more than six different planners/planner agencies around the Calgary region including Shannon. After our initial meeting, I felt that Shannon was the right fit. She promptly responded to all my emails/calls, and was very reasonably priced for the services she was offering compared to other planners.

    Shannon did not disappoint – she was very organized, knew what I wanted, worked with my high expectations, and executed the day perfectly. My husband was skeptical of why we needed a planner in the first place – but he later stated that he was so glad Shannon and he partner were there to help with our day!

    Thank you Shannon for all of your help, I will personally recommend you to all of my friends. My MOH currently has your number saved in her phone – she has the perfect planner, now she just needs a potential future husband and wedding date!

    Shannon was amazing! I felt that having her there allowed me to relax and enjoy the day and all of the planning that I put in place. I felt that everything that I had given her to do she executed with perfection. I used her for day of coordination, which I highly recommend to every bride, however I would recommend her for full coordination if needed!

    Thanks so much Ann, you guys were fantastic to work with! We enjoyed every minute!

    Shannon Valente was amazing. My husband and I made the decision that we wanted to be able to enjoy our day, rather than worry about all of the details, and choosing Shannon to help us was the best decision we could have made! She took care of everything for us on our big day. We had absolutely no worries and were able to fully participate in and enjoy the whole day. Her attention to detail was impeccable. Our one regret is that we only hired her for the day of. We should have hired her to plan the whole thing!! Shannon Valente Weddings is the company to hire for your wedding needs!

    I truly can not put into words or ratings the value that Shannon Valente provided to our wedding. She is so friendly and inviting. It doesn't matter how many questions or changes you ask/make. She addresses every step of the planning with a smile on her face.
    She provided unbelievable help with choosing vendors, coordinating details, overall planning, budget tracking, helpful ideas, opinions, etc etc.
    Her execution on the day before/day of the wedding was second to none. I literally did not worry about one detail being forgotten. It all went perfectly, and I was able to enjoy every minute of my big day.
    I could not recommend Shannon Valente Weddings more. Anyone would be very very lucky to have Shannon be a part of their wedding in any capacity!!!!!

    Shannon is an amazing human and an even more amazing wedding planner! We hired her for day of only but it was like she was there every step of the way. She made our day so smooth and made it so that we only had to think about having fun and enjoying what was the best day of our lives (so far ;)) she is worth every penny and is like having an extra mom on hand taking care of everyone so your mom can relax and enjoy! everyone at our wedding commented on how organized and smooth our wedding was! Awesome!
