J. Jasper Events
We hired Shannon for month of coordination and we could not have been any happier with our decision! As two working professionals with hectic schedules, we were starting to feel overwhelmed with all the planning the wedding entailed. When things became complicated or stressful, Shannon was always calm, thoughtful and reliable. She responded to our emails promptly (and toward the end there were a lot!). I looked forward to our planning conversations. On the day, she did a wonderful job behind the scenes managing the iPod playlists, keeping things on time, and communicating with the other staff. In general, she was just a pleasant person to work with! We would highly recommend her to anyone planning an event. Her help allowed us, our family and our friends to enjoy our special day to the fullest. Many of our guests gave high praise for the event, and that wouldn't have happened without Shannon. Thank you Shannon!!

Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
I’m not the wedding planner you’ve seen on television – I’m down-to-earth but also a visionary; a planner but can also let things happen organically; I’m funny but know when to be serious. I’m a mellow Type A.
Why do you want to work with APW couples?
Out of all the clients I work with, APW couples are my favorite. They do things their own way, are open-minded, and out of the ordinary. They seem to be more in tune with the larger picture (i.e. marriage) versus making their wedding the “best day of their lives” (talk about expectations!) Many of my APW clients end up becoming my friends, which is pretty rad.
What is your artistic approach to weddings?
I’m game for anything. If you want a theme, I can help you with a theme. If you want to pick flowers in a field an hour before the wedding – let’s do it! Or if you have it all taken care of, and you need me to execute – I’m great at that too. I want you to have a day you’ll remember fondly. However/whatever that looks like for you works for me!
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I have a chronic case of wanderlust, so you can find me toting my 2 kids and husband to: the local farmer’s market, any beach, most campgrounds, rippling rivers, higher elevations, and/or the nearest airport. There’s usually wine, friends, laughter, and music involved (in that order).
