Shannon - the DoItAll events guru is incredible. My wife Kelley and I hired her to help with our wedding planning. We found Shannon while reading a Halifax article about event planners, interviewed her (and a few others) and felt 100% at ease and confident she would do an amazing job.
When my husband and I first got engaged we were committed to planning it from Calgary (we were married in Halifax) without a Wedding Planner or Coordinator. As the months went by, and the tasks began to build up, we decided to hire a Wedding Coordinator- and it was the best decision we made for the entire event! Shannon was on top of everything when it came to not only getting in contact with all of our vendors but also creating a detailed schedule the day of the event. She was at the church when we got there, made sure that the musicians knew what they were doing, and stayed until the bitter end of the evening. We heard several compliments from our family and friends about her organizational skills as well as her ability to keep the day going smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a thing on the biggest day of my life and I owe it all to my Wedding Coordinator and Decorator.
We were grateful to have Shannon's expertise to plan our daughters Halifax NS wedding while we were living in Ontario. She was instrumental in arranging the venue, the music, florist, photographer and most of the decorations and managed all the contracts for these vendors. She worked within our strict budget limits and provided valuable advice and support in the whole process. The wedding was beautiful and everything flowed wonderfully without us having to be concerned about the details. I would recommend this wedding planner to anyone planning a wedding from within the city limits or from out of the area. We couldn't have had such a good experience without Shannon's help.

Do It All Events gave us "outstanding service" for our Friday Wedding Rehearsal/Welcome Guests Dinner. As parents of the groom and living far away, and with so many of our family and friends travelling from afar, Shannon Bezanson heard exactly our dreams to create a most welcoming atmosphere where we could gather in a relaxed, fun setting, enjoy good food and to get to know each other before the wedding day itself. Shannon guided us through the planning process and the Friday evening itself, providing an amazingly delicious meal that while introducing us to the wonderful tastes of Nova Scotia, also had marvelous treats for the Canadian Western tastes. The venue was "The Tall Ship Silva", Halifax, NS, which was a fabulous experience. It could not have been better! A very sincere thank you to Shannon and Tall Ship Silva staff. It was a Wonderful success and better than we could have imagined.
Do It All Events planned our wedding in July, 2011. Shannon Bezanson was awesome. Shannon is well connected in the industry, very well organized and committed to her task. Our Wedding had challenges that she addressed with confidence and sensitivity to our needs/wants. Shannon's connections and experience proved to save us money and give us the Wedding of our dreams. She listened to our ideas and worked with us to express our personalities and creativity. Because of my work, our wedding had media interest and high profile guests. Shannon's vast experience in high profile event planning gave her insight into the protocols and considerations for this kind of occasion. Our wedding guests were also family, friends and community members that were equally important to us, and Shannon's approach to making everyone feel like special guests was greatly appreciated. Our local church was the perfect Venue, with a Dinner reception for wedding party and close relatives, then an evening dance/reception with all of the guests. It was a perfect blend for our special day. Our Wedding Party was very large with 8 adults and 10 youth/children. Shannon worked tirelessly with us to make sure everyone played a roll in the planning. There is nothing that I would do differently. Our Wedding Day was a dream come true. Overall I give Do It All Events, and Shannon Bezanson an A++.
