Stephanie was amazing all-around and our wedding would not have happened without her. She is very nice, thoughtful, extremely organized, and fun to be around - and she can help with anything (including finding a last-minute house painter)! She also seems to know and have a great relationship with every wedding vendor in the Berkshires area, which was incredibly helpful to coordinate across a bunch of different people. We would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone else getting married - and will make sure to work with her if we ever renew our vows!

Stephanie made our wedding day dreams come true! “Above and Beyond” should be her middle name, as that is the approach she takes in her event coordination. From her wonderful vendor recommendations, her fastidious planning ahead with vendors, to her flawless day-of coordination, we would not have had the wedding weekend we had without her. Her strong relationships with wedding vendors in northwest Connecticut was a particular boon. We were planning our CT wedding remotely from San Francisco, and Stephanie made this incredibly simple, by conducting site visits on her own and by communicating clearly and responding swiftly by email. She was also open to my priorities for the day and supported me in bringing to life the wedding-related projects I felt strongly about. I was able to relax and get ready for the events of our wedding weekend (Friday welcome party, Saturday wedding ceremony and reception, and Sunday brunch) knowing that everything was in stellar hands. Stephanie has such a fun, easygoing spirit, making her a joyful point of contact for my husband and I, as well as our many vendors. We could not recommend her heartily enough. Our vision of a festive, intimate, twinkly wedding filled with love and laughter was fully realized through our work with Steph. If we did everything over again, choosing to work with her would still have been our first major decision! We could not be more grateful to the tremendous care and commitment with which she approaches her events.

There are not enough amazing things to say about Stephanie! She consistently went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect. She was flexible, constantly available and calm during the inevitable stresses of wedding planning. We did not worry once on the day of our wedding, because we knew she was on top of everything. She listens to your wedding vision, but also provides incredibly useful advice and guidance. She anticipates the unexpected, pays attention to every single detail and is incredible at organizing multiple vendors. The weather was unpredictable on our wedding day and she kept us calm and optimistic while also helping us figure out the plan B. She made our day magical!

Working with Stephanie leading up to the wedding and that day of was wonderful. She was extremely responsive and detail oriented, helping us plan the day and weekend so it went seamlessly. We couldn’t be happier with how the weekend went.

We couldn’t have been happier with Stephanie as our wedding planner. I initially tried to take on planning entirely on my own, but I am so glad I reached out to SHG Event Planning. Stephanie made herself completely available to every question and concern, including keeping within our tight budget, helping us to capture memories that we will always cherish and taking the weight of wedding planning off my shoulders! Stephanie has a very creative and open mindset, she is passionate about what she does and we would recommend her to anyone needing a little help in preparation for the big day. She certainly made our wedding day a beautiful one to remember!

Stephanie, the wedding coordinator, is AWESOME!! She was easy to work with, responsive when I needed her and most importantly, made me feel like I had nothing to worry about the day of the wedding.

Stephanie, our wedding coordinator was absolute perfection in every way and had everything completely under control. Even if you are a relaxed bride, (which I thought I was going to be) weddings end up being a stressful but fun event and Stephanie put me completely at ease. She has a ton of experience with weddings so listen to her advice she knows what she is talking about! She has excellent recommendations for vendors as well which was very helpful! She was so easy to work with through out the entire process and is a true professional and just a really lovely person in general!

Stephanie, puts her heart and soul into every wedding, and she was super helpful from the moment we booked the venue, until the moment we checked out post wedding. She is detail oriented, and always willing to answer one of the 1000 questions that came up during the wedding planning process, and because she does this every weekend, she knows exactly what works, and what doesn’t over the course of the wedding weekend. She is a true asset to each couple

Event planner Stephanie Holst-Grubbe was so helpful with all of our wedding planning, from start to finish she guided us along the way. Rave reviews from all who attended our special day.

Stephanie Holst-Grubbe, is fantastic. She is easy to work with, has great attention to detail, is a problem solver and doesn’t seem to be shocked or rattled by anything. On the day of, I literally did not worry about a thing. She took care of things I hadn’t even thought to mention.
