30 May Why We Love What We Do!

For almost 17 years I have had the privilege of sharing one of the most special days in a couple’s relationship.  We have successfully executed hundreds of weddings and have memories to last a lifetime.  However, we recently experienced a first.  We received a review from a guest at one of our weddings.  Our commitment to each event has always gone beyond our client.  We strive for each guest and vendor to have an enjoyable experience.  How awesome is it that this guest noticed and took the time to share her thoughts on WeddingWire!

I was a guest for my best friend’s daughters wedding on May 21st, 2017 and was able to watch how Shawn and her team created such a stress free wedding day for Erica. They took care of all the little and big details, made sure everything was just perfect and set a tone for the entire day that allowed the bride and her family to enjoy the day without feeling rushed or stressed whatsoever. I would highly recommend Shawn Schindler Events to anyone who wants to enjoy their day and be assured that it will be everything they imagined and more!

02 Nov Shawn Schindler…..Celebrating 15 Years!!

057Shawn Shindler Team _J

Shawn Schindler, Owner and Lead Consultant of Shawn Schindler Events is celebrating 15 years in the event industry and we feel the best way to celebrate such a momentous milestone, is to give back!

 

Shawn shares, “I have been so blessed by my career!  I deeply value the relationships with the event professionals I have the privilege of working with each week and our amazing staff, past and present, that have contributed greatly to our success.   Most importantly, my life has been so enriched by the hundreds of couples and families I have worked with during my 15 years.  Giving back seems small compared to how full my life is as a professional event planner.”

 

During our anniversary month of November, for every client that books our Spectacular event package, Shawn Schindler Events will donate $150 to one of our team selected charities. In addition to this, for any client who books our Timeless package, we will donate $50.

 
Our team thought long and hard about how we should celebrate the accomplishments and success of Shawn Schindler Events. After realizing how passionate we are about our community and all of those within it that help make every event we do so special, we realized giving back that very same community is the best way to celebrate.

 
We have been so blessed to be able to have been a part of so many individuals’ lives and to be a part of so many more as the years continue. It truly is a huge accomplishment for the Shawn Schindler Events team to have made it 15 years in the hands with growing success, of Shawn Schindler.

 
Each one of us came together to think of our own local nonprofits to which we would charitably contribute and our choices are as follows. Every single one of these amazing organizations have provided our community with resources, help and so much more. Follow the links to learn more about each of our selections and all that they have provided for our Triangle Area and beyond.
