"Symone had my best interests at heart and always helped me make my ideas come to fruition in the best way. My wedding day went smoothly because of Symone. She put out fires without me even knowing they were happening so that I would enjoy my day."

"Occasions with Symone Shaw was the best choice I made when choosing a wedding planner! I am so thankful that I was able to work with Symone for a whole year of wedding planning. Symone was on it from day one. She lays everything out from the start and makes sure you have a detailed checklist of how and when to get things done. Symone has such a great eye for detail and executes her ideas beautifully. She takes your dream and makes it reality! Her thoughtfulness and organization truly take all of your wedding planning stress away. Symone not only plans your day, but also communicates with every vendor along the way. She is always constant communication with everyone, making sure each detail falls into place. One of my vendors even said, 'We have never seen a wedding planner like this before.' She is that amazing! Symone is also honest and helps guide you when making important/tough decisions. I highly recommend using Occasions with Symone Shaw for all of your event planning needs. Her professionalism, talent, and passion for this industry is like no other. You won't be disappointed!"

"I could not say enough wonderful things about Symone! We had a certain vision in mind for our wedding, but weren't sure how to make it come to life. After we started working with Symone, she took our vision to the next level. She is so creative and has such an eye for detail! What she created for us was beyond my expectations and utterly flawless.
We worked with her for a year, but she had the majority of the wedding planned within months of our first meeting. She recommends specific vendors to fit your vision and budget and then works with them to get everything planned for you. She also provided checklists of tasks that need to be completed each month which kept everything organized and on track. She is very easy to communicate with and so flexible when you throw ideas out there that weren't originally part of the plan. There were many times in the months before the wedding where I would email her with ideas saying "Can we get this?" and she would have the new proposal/contract etc. to me within days. She was amazing!
The day of the wedding went perfectly because she planned everything to a "T". With the detailed timeline she provided, all the vendors, family, and bridal party knew where to be and what time. We were even ahead of schedule most of the day. I was able to enjoy every aspect of our wedding day because I did not have to worry about a thing because I knew Symone was on it and would handle any problem that might come up. I am so thankful we chose Symone as our wedding planner and grateful for all the hard work she put in. So many people came up to me before and after the wedding saying how great of a job she did and I could not agree more! If you get a chance to work with Symone, it will be the best decision you could make for your wedding!"

"Symone executed our wedding weekend flawlessly. She handled a multi-day set-up process with multiple vendors. She brought peace of mind on such an important weekend, and, not to mention, it was all beautiful!"
