    My employer had Shannon Lemp coordinate a business group gathering hosted in her home in January 2016. Shannon’s attention to detail for this event included beautiful serving dishes, a specialty welcome cocktail for guests, and choosing a knockout chef to prepare the meal in house. She arrived early at the house to set up the house for the party and help with whatever needed to be done. Because the event was a success, Shannon was hired to plan my employer’s wedding in March 2016. Shannon was able to take an out-of-focus vision from the bride’s mind and conceptualize the ambience and setting to create the perfect wedding for her. Since the wedding also took place at my employer’s home, Shannon had to be very creative in turning the home into a venue to host 50 guests. She re-created the first floor brining in additional tables including a stunning long farm table to seat the wedding party. Each table was unique with its own set of beautiful colorful china, flatware, glassware, and seating. Although each table was different they tied into a darling antique-y theme and an overall color scheme of gold, metallic, and deep reds. Shannon’s staging and decoration talents are unparalleled. The dessert bar and cocktail bar were equally gorgeous in their presentation. Besides her abilities in event décor, Shannon was the consummate professional, meeting with us many times in person, corresponding via email, and always available by text. She coordinated with the florist and chef and as a result, no detail was forgot along the way. We cannot thank you enough for your tireless work and help creating a beautiful day for the bride and groom!

    Shannon did a great job helping to plan a St. Louis wedding with an out-of-town couple! Her relaxed demeanor and calming approach helped enormously when things were stressful. She was tireless in managing all of the details, offering gentle guidance and suggestions in bringing the 'vision' to fruition. She provided great customer service (including a snowy Sunday night visit to address a snafu well before the big weekend in the summer)! When the actual event arrived, Shannon and her team took care of all of the logistics. Everything was beautiful and seamless and we were able to focus on sharing the joy of the marriage with our family and friends. Thank you Shannon!

She introduced us to reliable and capable vendors and worked with all our vendors to provide services that met our needs and respected our budget. Her imaginative suggestions and provisions for the “Downton Abbey” themed bridal shower proved to be fun and entertaining for our daughter, bridesmaids and guests. And when unpredictable personal misfortune struck, Shannon buoyed our spirits, held the course and moved us forward to a happy and unforgettable day for our whole family. We are delighted to have worked with Shannon and would whole-heartedly recommend her services as a wedding and party planner.

    Shannon planned and coordinated my corporate event. She was hired to help make this event elegant and memorable as well as take care of all the details. She met with us and from day one took care of all the details. I felt she was in control of everything and knew what to do so I didn't have to worry about a thing. We hosted the event in our corporate offices, so we needed catering, tables etc. She transformed our offices into an elegant space for our guests. She staged the tables and the entry ways as well as made sure that everything from the invitations to decorations were consistent. She was fantastic to work with and we will definitely hire her again for our next Anniversary event. We highly recommend Shannon and St. Louis Hospitality! She is an 11 out of 10!
