Hi, I’m Shannon Valente, I am many things – wedding planner extraordinaire, animal lover, daughter, sister, wife and mother. I’m creative, inspired, friendly, crafty, dedicated, thrifty, happy, organized, and reality TV is my guilty pleasure.
When I was growing up I always wanted to be a marine biologist (like Grant Roberts from the show ‘Danger Bay’) until I realized I needed to take science, not my thing! So, when the day came to choose a major in University, I went with marketing. Along the way always becoming the ‘social event coordinator’ at every job I have ever had. With my background, love of a good party, and certification from the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada, I began my wedding planning business (originally called Frit Fru Weddings) in 2006 .
I look forward to working with you on your wedding. My goal at the end of the day is to help you create an amazingly fun, jaw dropping, memorable, stress free wedding that screams YOU! Let the journey begin….
