Meet the duo


Jean’s Story

I have always been passionate about entertaining and designing events that will resonate with people. After 25 years of planning events, I have learned that the key to a successful event is in the details that go unnoticed. The details that only the keen eye will pick out will take an average event to a whole different level.

When I’m not working on planning a wedding or cooking up some food, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. I’ve been happily married to Scott for six years, and am a proud mamma to three sons and have been blessed with two step-daughters. I also enjoy traveling in our 5th wheel as much as possible, playing with my three dogs, and spending quality time with my amazing family and friends!


Shannin’s Story

I have been involved in the event and hospitality industry for over 9 years. From humble beginnings as a part of the Willabys Catering wait staff; I have developed a thorough understanding of the logistics behind planning an event. Not many people grasp how daunting coordinating an event can be. I find that an event can often take several months, or even years, of planning to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch!

I absolutely love taking a client’s ideas from a vision to a reality. I am just as much a coordinator as I am a problem solver extraordinaire!

Outside of my work life, I enjoy volunteering, exercising, and spending time with my dog and husband of two years! I am always looking for the next adventure that I can enjoy with my little family and amazing friends.
