Shannon + Joe


I have had the pleasure of knowing Shannon for over ten years.  I met her at Urban Waxx when she was a one-woman show in a tiny flex space. Since then she's grown her company to over eight locations (with more to come!) and I'm lucky enough to call her a friend.  She is an inspiring business woman, but what I love about her most is her sense of humor.  Seriously, she makes me laugh SO hard. When Shannon asked me to plan her wedding I was over the moon!!  I met Joe early on and the two of them together are like a comedy routine.  Such a sweet couple and just good, solid people.

When it came to their wedding, they wanted nothing to do with planning.  All I knew is that they like rose gold and they wanted good food.  So...rose gold they received along with marble accents (that bar though!), lush peonies (why not include my favorite when I have free reign?!?!), dramatic anemones and a color scheme of white, black, grey and rose gold. The design was sleek, sexy and modern and went perfectly with the lines of their beautiful home, where their event was held. Thankfully, they loved it all!

Guests arrived, valeted their car, walked under a dramatic balloon arch by Balloons on Broadway, and were treated to appetizers and delicious cocktails by White Pepper.  They headed down to the lawn for a standing ceremony by Kevin Yell that was so sweet and personal.  Shannon + Joe's love for each other and for their children is heartwarming. The kiddos, who are super close, watching their parents get married with tears in their eyes was everything.

Afterwards, DJ Evil One spun dinner right into a serious dance party and of course Shannon had to change into a reception dress.  It was such a great night and best of all, so personal! Congrats Shannon + Joe, I loved every second of planning your fab event!

Nora executed ever detail flawlessly. From moving all of the furniture out of our home to coordinating the day of, everything was PERFECTION! I cannot think of any other words except that. Perfect.
Seriously, if you are looking for an event planner, Bridal Bliss is the best ever. I will never plan an event without Nora.
