here do I even begin? Brooke is an absolute saint. She made my wedding day run seamlessly. She was on top of every little detail (especially things I would have never even thought about) and made the day EASY not only for me but for my vendors. My vendors adored working with Brooke and had so much to say about her. She gave them the most detailed timelines and ensured they had everything they needed to be successful. My biggest fear going into the wedding was not sticking to a timeline [staying on time] and potentially having a list of things to say went bad after but when reflecting with my husband, we cannot come up with a single thing that went wrong and we credit that to Brooke and her team. The best part is that Brooke treated me as if I was an old friend and made working with her feel comfortable. I wish I could have Brooke as my every day life coach and will truly miss our daily chats. I will forever be indebted to her for making my wedding day the best day of my husband's and my life!

hen my now husband and I first got engaged, we truly didn't think we needed a wedding planner. I have a very Type A personality, so I thought I could handle everything myself. It wasn't until my sweet mother-in-law surprised me with hiring Brooke that I knew this was the best decision we could have ever made. To put it simply, Brooke is the BEST in the business. She was there for me every step of the way and always supported every decision I made regarding the wedding. She always offered her advice and gave suggestions but never pushed for us to do things a certain way. Our happiness remained the forefront of her concerns, and even when things didn't go as planned, she remained professional and respectful. Brooke went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day went as smoothly and as perfectly as possible. She even took on jobs that she did not have to do, but she did them because she has a heart of pure gold and helping others is always her priority. Brooke often says she is a small part in your big day, but quite frankly, she was one of the biggest parts in ours. From late night emails, to meetings, and everything in between, Brooke provided us with nothing but the best service we could have ever dreamed of having. She not only was our wedding planner, but she soon became our friend, and for that we are truly thankful.

rooke is amazing! We were very impressed with her from our initial interaction which was via e-mail. After reaching out to other wedding coordinators, Brooke stood out as our first choice because how quickly she was able to share our wedding vision. She was extremely relatable, which was ideal for us as a more laid-back couple. She made us feel like we were the only couple in the world getting married; she made us feel like a priority. After meeting with Brooke in person, we knew we made one of the smartest choices in our wedding planning career by hiring her.... Brooke was able to recommend multiple vendors – and never pressured us to go with anyone specific. We did use some recommended vendors by Brooke and they were amazing! She was also able to work perfectly with our other outside vendors. She provided detailed vendor specific timelines to everyone and managed contact with them. Our DJ was a relative, who told us specifically how impressed he was with her timeline. Brooke’s vast wedding experience is a true gift because she was able to predict where potential problems could occur on our wedding day, and allowed us to be prepared and avoid all the typical wedding day stresses. I can honestly say our wedding was perfect. She was incredibly patient and detail oriented when we discussed the vision of our ceremony and reception décor. When the Wedding Day came, Brooke made our vision come to life! Our wedding was unique due to Hurricane Florence forcing us to delay out original wedding by 2 months, and Brooke stayed with us through it all. Brooke reached out to all our vendors and kept everyone in the loop with the date change. In a way, she planned 2 weddings for us! The week before our new wedding date, Brooke was on her own personal vacation but still found time to e-mail with us regularly. She truly cares about her couples. Bottom line: Hire Brooke! She’s a talented and professional wedding coordinator – but even more, she’s a genuine wonderful person who wants to give every couple their happily ever after.

have dreaded writing a review of the BSE team because 1. that means planning with Brooke is officially over and 2. there are truly no words to describe how incredible Brooke Shehan is. My fiancé and I knew we needed Brooke after seeing her in action at a close friend’s wedding and joined the BSE a few days later! Brooke walked with us every step of the way, ensuring each detail was carefully tended to (and trust me, there are a lot of details!). She encouraged me and gave me the room to be creative and take lead on anything I wanted to. She had efficient solutions to every question we posed and worked quickly with our vendors to help our vision come to life. Brooke was not only a joy to work with personally, but every. single. one. of my vendors made a point to share that they had never worked with a coordinator as organized, prompt and KIND, as Brooke was. Even on the morning of our big day, Brooke made a point to drop by for a hug and remind me that she was there to help with whatever I needed! The best part about this experience was finding a true friend in Brooke. We hit it off right away like we had been friends for years. She made it easy to solicit honest feedback and was our #1 cheerleader up until long after the reception had ended. As an event planner myself, some asked why we needed Brooke and her team. To that I say, you don’t know what you’re missing until you work with her! Thank you, Brooke & BSE, for making our long-anticipated dream wedding, a reality.

his review has only been hard to write simply because I have had a difficult time coming up with the correct words to describe Brooke and her business. At first thought those words are - AMAZING, ORGANIZED, & ATTENTIVE, but Brooke and BSE are so much more than those string of words. Not only did I find the most amazing wedding coordinator in Brooke, but also a friend. I truly felt that Brooke had our best interest in mind every step of the way and she ALWAYS took the time to listen to my concerns and ease my mind. I'm not kidding when I say that all of my worries/stress dissipated as soon as Brooke came into the picture. Brooke truly makes you feel like you are the only client she is working with when in fact the opposite could not be more true. Her amazing assistant, Kathy was just so wonderful and warm and we were so happy she was there to assist with us on the big day. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Brooke and BSE team and am so happy they were a part of our big day :) I am positive there is no one better in the business than Brooke & BSE, I would recommend them to friends/family in a HEARTBEAT!

ook Brook Shehan Events!! Brooke is the sweetest person ever and she is so professional and responsive. She helped us months before our wedding and made the whole process stress free. I instantly connected with her and felt like I knew her forever. Brooke knows what she is doing and has the best advice. My dad dropped off the wedding decor at our venue the day of the wedding and Brooke and her assistant, Hilary, took charge and decorated and made the venue look amazing! There were a few issues with our rentals that morning but Brooke took care of it and didn't tell me so I wouldn't worry. Everything was perfect through my (and my husband's) eyes and we owe it all to this wonderful woman. I feel like I can't say enough nice words about Brooke Shehan Events. I would recommend this service to all of my friends. You can not go wrong with this lady and her team :) They for sure have your back.

rooke was a life saver for us! Our wedding absolutely would not have gone as smoothly as it did if it were not for her. On top of that, we would have been about 10 times as stressed! Brooke is so on top of everything it is unbelievable. From keeping up with all the vendors, to creating a timeline, to reminding us the things we need to stay on top of, she does it all! If you want to save yourself some time and some stress you need to hire Brooke! If you want a fantastic person to run point for your big day, Brooke is your person. On top of all that, she is so friendly and sweet, there could not be a nicer person to work with. We'd give her 10 stars out of 5 if we could! Brooke is amazing!

rooke with Brooke Shehan Events is everything you need and more when it comes to planning a wedding and ensuring all the details are carried out for wedding day! I admit to being the bride who thought, "i probably don't need a coordinator or planner. I have plenty of time, and I can certainly do this on my own." Looking back, I literally can't imagine what my wedding would've been like without Brooke. She was there every single step of the way, and she provided the perfect amount of support with the perfect amount of nudging to make sure we were staying on track with things that needed to be done along the way. And when I say "perfect amount," I really mean it. After my first meeting with Brooke, she had figured out exactly the amount of hand holding I was going for, and she nailed it. She works with you to find out exactly what you want in your wedding and exactly what you want from her as your planner. She listens and absorbs every detail thrown her way! I still don't know how she managed to keep up with all of my crazy requests! On the day of my wedding, she was willing to jump in and do anything and everything we asked. She was even doing stuff behind the scenes before we even thought to ask for it. She was always a few steps ahead of us, and she still managed to check in with me throughout the day to see if there was anything she could do for me. Not only was Brooke a key piece to our wedding puzzle, but she was also a joy to work with! Her smile, her readiness, her helpfulness, her thoughtfulness -- I could truly go on and on. Brooke is hands down the best, and I guarantee you that she will make all of your wedding hopes and dreams come true in whatever capacity you'd like her to!

rooke Shehan Events is nothing short of fabulous. Planning a wedding can be very stressful, but not with Brooke Shehan. Throughout the whole wedding planning process Brooke was organized, attentive, and resourceful. She is very easy to work with and really works hard to make your dream wedding comes true. She thought of every little detail and was so helpful with everything throughout the planning process. I will be forever grateful for Brooke's hard work, commitment, passion and enthusiasm that she demonstrated for our wedding. I HIGHLY recommend Brooke Shehan to any bride and groom who are looking for someone to help make their special day perfect.
