{Wedding} Melanie: PEARbride

“We hired PEAR to decorate prior to our wedding and tear down when it was done. Lindsay was great – she met with me ahead of time to transfer the decorations and discuss exactly where everything should go. On the day of, she made my venue beautiful and allowed me to focus on coordinating the rest of the vendors and getting myself ready. She was always very responsive, professional, and a calming force the morning of the wedding. I absolutely could not have done it without her. I would recommend PEAR a hundred times over.”

{Wedding} Kari & Mike

“Shannon and her team were such a dream to work with for our day-of coordination. When I had questions throughout the process, Shannon was willing to help and offer opinions on certain things. We gave them the pieces and they captured our vision so well in setting up our space at Pearl Street. We were given great advice off the bat and didn’t have to worry about a thing the day of our wedding! The PEAR team helped with everything from general encouragement and positivity to getting us food & drinks to coordinating with our DJ to stay an extra hour. My husband was skeptical from the start, but I know that he was sold by end the of the night!

One of the things that I will never forget about my wedding day was the way the PEAR team went above and beyond and created a perfectly romantic setting for us in our hotel room with candles and pieces from the reception. I would have never asked them to do that for us (as I never would have thought of it), but I was truly blown away when I opened that door after an exhausting and amazing day. I will never forget that feeling and for that, I have only PEAR to thank!”

{Wedding} Kasia: PEARbride

“Shannon was the best thing that happen to us on our big day. I will definitively recommend her to my family and friends. She made my day stress free and was always steep ahead of me, which was amazing since once I realized that she was doing a great job I was able to let go of everything and really enjoy my day. There are always things that go wrong on your big day but Shannon took care of everything and for as far as I knew everything was going great and according to the plan. She handled everything and everyone with respect and in a great manner. When I think of how it would all go if Shannon wasn’t there to help us on our big day I realize how thankful I am and that I would never be able to handle it myself. Shannon, thank you for being a great friend, amazing artist, great wedding planner and for making mine and Wally’s dream wedding come true! I have no idea how we would do it all if it wasn’t for you. Also, which I believe is one of your gifts, I thank you for connecting with me and seeing everything, especially all the ideas I had, through my eyes and transferring all of them into reality that made the day even more magical. It is great to work with a person that can see who you are, what you like and how you like it done. Thanks again for everything!”

{Wedding} Rich: PEARgroom

“We hired Shannon as the “manager of the day” for our wedding and I cannot express how great she was! Shannon was able to relieve a lot of the stress that comes with the wedding day, and I could not have imagined our day without her help. With her being there, taking care of the set up and take down of our outdoor wedding ceremony, picking up and dropping off numerous items, and controlling the flow of the day to keep pace with our timeline – allowed my wife and I to enjoy our wedding day, without having to worry about anything. She even came to the rescue with two umbrellas when it started to rain after our ceremony was over! PEAR was a large part of the reason why our wedding went very smoothly and allowed us and our guests to have a memorable day. I would not hesitate to hire them at another event in the future!”

{Wedding} Amy: PEARbride

“Shannon at Pear Planning truly went above and beyond for our day-of planning for our wedding. She offered fantastic ideas as well as incorporated ideas I had. Our outdoor ceremony turned out more beautiful that imagined and I didn’t have to worry as I knew Shannon would take care of everything. She even had umbrellas in case which worked out perfectly when there was a quick shower after the ceremony! I highly recommend Pear!”
