"Very detailed oriented, caring and helpful"
LaShanta is very detailed oriented, caring and helpful in going above and beyond. I recently did a vendor's event, walked away for a moment and she had executed the breaking down and clean up of my area flawlessly. If you're looking for an awesome, hardworking visionary, look no further. - Melodee C. Freeman Troy,  OCT 2019

"LaShanta goes above and beyond"

I booked with LaShanta back in 2019 and as you can imagine with COVID, everything including my date, the location, etc had changed. However, even under these pressures, she stepped up and went above and beyond to help me solve every issue, from new locations to new vendors. Prior to the wedding, her communication and professionalism was outstanding. I received responses via email/text no later than 24hrs. She contacted me throughout the entire process to take things off my plate and to assist in any way possible, which is definitely needed when you are planning a wedding.
After all this time, I finally had my wedding and am so impressed with her performance and services. As mentioned before, she went above and beyond to make sure that my day was stress free. She remained in constant contact with vendors, made sure the bridal party was in “tip-top” shape (i.e. provided refreshments for the bridal party; managed rehearsal until it was correct), provided a detailed and organized timeline for the wedding weekend, ensured the venue did EVERYTHING I asked (decorations, set up), as well as so much more. She provided the structure that is needed to keep things running smoothly, as the that day/weekend is usually expected to be hectic. However, my day was completely opposite of hectic! The little hiccups that are expected to happen (i.e. uninvited guests; bridal party not at rehearsal) did not ruin my day and that was due to her flexibility, communication, and professionalism, which is why planners/coordinators such as herself are highly recommended.

If you are looking for a professional and well-organized planner/coordinator…she’s my top choice! - Carlie Salahuddin, OCT 2021
