Shannon was so amazing!!! She was super helpful during the planning process and was so professional and friendly during my wedding. She kept busy and went above and beyond. She was awesome and I highly recommend her! I will definitely call her again for future events. :)Sep 19, 2016Verified

I couldn't ask for anyone better. Not only do I want to have Shannon as my friend, she treated everyone like family. She handled herself with class and as a professional, with a balance of ease and fun. I have already recommended her to all my friends and all my guests loved her. What a great asset to my bridal team!Sep 13, 2016Verified

Shannon and her team were outstanding. Communication before my event was almost instantaneous. She arrived early, setup was professional and pretty. She and her team had smiles on their face the entire evening and didn't even blink an eye when I asked her to stay an extra hour as my event hadn't winded down. I would and will definitely hire her again. Thank you!Apr 30, 2016Verified

We're so excited to work with Shannon; she's been great so far in responding to our questions, helping us make decisions and offer her advice and experience without pressuring us into anything we don't want to do! Can't wait for our wedding!Jul 25, 2015Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new customer, the first thing I do is identify their needs and expectations. Once identified, we formulate a plan and service agreement that works with their budget, time, location, etc. Every event is unique and I like to work with people as closely as possible so that we really focus on creating the type of experience they are looking for, all things considered.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started in the service industry waiting tables at 15 years old and have worked in the Food and Beverage business ever since. I started in restaurants and bars and then moved on to catering, working for the Wild Thyme Company (fantastic San Diego based caterer!) as an operations manager. I moved to Oceanside in 2011 and started my own business, BarFly Beverage Solutions, providing event beverage and bar services across San Diego County. Education: Bachelor of Science in Business/Marketing, Associate of Arts in Hospitality Management & Certificate of Proficiency in Meeting & Event Planning,
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Be sure to hire a real professional! There are lots of bartenders out there, but consider the amount of interaction your bartender is going to have with your guests and the impact that has on the overall vibe of your event. This is not an area where you want to leave it to chance. Know who you are getting.
