Our wedding was on 9/30/16 and I was so thankful to have Sharon as our day-of coordinator! We had a very unique situation with a ton of problems with our venue. On top of them being extremely unorganized and difficult to work with, we went through 4 different venue... Read More coordinators during our planning process. After the first one left and we were having so many issues with the second, that is when we decided to hire our own day-of coordinator, Sharon. Funny thing is when I was looking on theknot.com for a coordinator based on reviews, she showed up as 5-star and I realized that I knew her! I swam with her daughter in high school and I've known Sharon since I was 14 years old. I knew she would be perfect for the job! Sharon was extremely helpful not just during the day but also during the entire planning process. One of the first things she did was look through our vendor contracts. She pointed out important details that I've overlooked like that we didn't have the photographer for long enough to cover our day which led to us extending. She listened to our issues and attended our final meetings with the venue. She was there for us when our 3rd venue coordinator decided to leave 2 months prior to our wedding re-assuring that things would be ok. She immediately was on the phone with the owner and had a meeting setup right away to discuss a path forward. After meeting with the owner who was extremely grumpy and difficult, Sharon had secured a second assistant to help her to make sure our day went smooth. We were faced with the horrible forecast of rain. Sharon had independently facilitated the rehearsal in our Plan B inside ceremony room. She walked everyone through the ceremony including where they would need to sit. She even advised what to do if there were complications, like the flower girl not walking down the aisle. The day of the wedding, it was a complete downpour in the morning. Sharon was ready bright and early at the ceremony site (anticipated to be inside due to the rain) and was there to witness the owner denying our use of the inside room due to fire code the morning of the wedding a half hour before we needed to decide. She immediately came to my room to give me the awful news so I could cry it out before I had my makeup on and we could figure out what to do (our venue coordinator wasn't even there yet). Once it sunk in that we were going to have the wedding outside in the rain, Sharon immediately started contacting all of the vendors and letting them know. She had her assistant get umbrellas at the dollar store for our guests, made sure all of the chairs were wiped down, figured out where the DJ could put the speaker out of the rain so we could still have music and even worked it out with one of our guests that the bridal party could hide in their room to keep us in secret until the ceremony start time! We got very lucky that we only had a mist rain happening but without Sharon, we would have been in trouble! I also wanted to note that her assistants Yamelissa and Amy were fantastic. Amy drove me around the wedding site in her car so I wouldn't have to walk in the rain. Yamelissa got me drinks and food during cocktail hour. Even though I had showed tons of people how to bustle my dress, no one was around to do it for me and sure enough Amy and Yamelissa bustled my dress with no issues! Sharon and Amy together setup my DIY photobooth with turned out amazing! Very highly recommend Sharon and her team!

Sharon and her staff are amazing! We planned our wedding long distance and hired her for Day Of services. I don't know what we would have done without her. She answered countless emails over 10+ months, gave us great advice, helped us pull off the perfect look and feel for our... Read More intercultural wedding, and made sure everything ran smoothly on our big day! One thing I particularly noticed during the planning process was how much our other vendors liked and respected her. As soon as they heard we were working with Sharon, they said, "Oh, then you are in great hands!" And we were. She is extremely organized, competent, kind, and has a great sense of humor -- all qualities that matter when you are working with someone who is helping you plan the most important day of your life! The only regret I have is not booking her full wedding package - she is that awesome! If you're planning a Poconos wedding, lock down your date with Sharon as soon as possible! It will be one of the best wedding decisions you make!

My wife and I had an extremely positive experience with Sharon. After realizing we had a ton of details to iron out a few weeks before our wedding, we connected with Sharon for "Month Of" services, and we were extremely happy with the results. We had multiple phone... Read More conversations in which Sharon compiled all of our vendor information and then put together a comprehensive timeline, identifying a ton of small details that we hadn't even thought of. She was also a great liaison between our band and our caterer, both of whom had strong ideas about the timing and progression of the reception. From making sure the ceremony proceeded perfectly, to details as small as ensuring the location of props for our first dance, Sharon ensured that everything went off without a hitch. We were also impressed by her commitment to ensuring a total lack of stress from our perspective-- she insisted that we did not have our phones so that we could fully immerse ourselves in the moment. I'd highly recommend Sharon: the peace of mind she provides on one of the most important days of your life cannot be overstated!

Growing up I always enjoyed planning parties!! I just had a knack with finding what I needed and pulling it together and it all going well and looking beautiful! As I got older, I was a member in the Knights of Columbus Ladies Group and helped to plan dinners, fundraisers, balls, etc. I was really good at it and loved it. It was after I planned my 10 year wedding anniversary celebration, I realized this is what I want to do for a profession. It began, back in 1997 for 7 years and then I took a sabbatical and 6 years ago, I re-opened my business and have found my niche!
