Shawon did a fantastic job in planning our wedding! Throughout the planning process, Shawon was very personable, caring, patient, and most of all PROFESSIONAL. She is always on top of things when it comes to her business, which I thoroughly respect and appreciate. I always knew I could go to Shawon with any questions or concerns and she would have an immediate suggestion/solution.

By nature, I am a person who stresses about things, but I was absolutely stress free on my wedding day due to the fact that I knew Shawon was there and would take care of any situation. Our wedding day turned out to be all that l wanted and more!! Our ceremony started on time, which is very important to me, and everything flowed smoothly from beginning to end. We have received numerous compliments from our guests regarding how great the wedding was. We couldn’t have done it without SDS Events. Thank you Shawon!

I hired Shawon for partial planning. Awesome work, she and her team delivered the complete look on my wedding day. My wedding started on time which still amazes me because I felt we were somehow running off schedule but she managed to pull it off. It was Shawon who calmed me when a rush of emotion came over me. My nerves got the best of me she was very professional and has a calming spirit. I am grateful to have hired the SDS team for an amazing stress free wedding day! You won’t go wrong money well spent.

To start, I was skeptical about hiring a Wedding Consultant due to the cost, however when I met with Shawon during the initial consultation I knew that I would be making the best decision in hiring her and her team. Shawon guided me every step of the way. She is honest,polished and her rates are very reasonable. I would recommend SDS Events to any Bride looking for affordable service and superior costumer service.

When I was searching for a wedding planner the words I always had in my mind were “PEACE OF MIND”. I know I sent Shawon 1000 emails saying “What do you think about this or that”. One thing I will say is if you want someone to sugar coat, Shawon is not the one. She will give it to you straight and give her honest opinion. Shawon helped to ease alot of the doubt I had about my wedding day and if it would go off as planned.

My wedding day was FLAWLESS. It started on time(which is a feat in and of itself) and things flowed just as they should have. I was so pleased and I think guests were too. She was definitely an asset on my wedding day.

After the wedding we were able to meet for a debrief to talk about what worked, what didn’t and just exchange ideas. I believe she appreciated the candid feedback and will use it to make SDS even more awesome. I look forward to continuing a relationship with Shawon and SDS events.

SDS Events did an excellent job on my wedding! She was always available when I needed her & followed through with all of my needs regardless of what they were. My destination wedding was on time & the best experience of my life…& it was primarily done via email to the Bahamas! Worth way more than I paid!

Working with Signature Designs by Shawon made planning my dream wedding in six months completely stress free. Shawon made sure every details of my wedding was address exactly the way I envisioned. Signature Designs by Shawon was a pleasure to work with.

– D. Johnson

Shawon is very dependable, trustworthy, and understanding. I had a few mishaps happen to me weeks before my big day and she had a great solution for all of them. She’s also has a very down to earth personality, so I felt like I could talk to her about anything that was on my mind even if it wasn’t associated with the wedding.

– A. Williams

Shawon was very professional, economical and hands on with my wedding. I hired Shawon to be my wedding planner, little did I know she would become a respectable friend or big sister. Shawon was by my side during the whole planning process. Anytime I needed Shawon she was only a phone call away. There was not one time that I called or emailed that she did not respond right away. Not only did she help me with the planning of my wedding but most of all she made my husband and I very comfortable. I felt as if I had know her for several years.
Shawon is about business! Everything that we discussed prior to my big day she made it all happen. Shawon went over and beyond her duties as my planner. Without Shawon my wedding would not have gone so smooth.
She is worth far more than what she charges!

SDS Events made my day more than I could ask for. My guests were saying how my wedding was the first wedding they had ever been to that everything was on time and perfect. I was so happy to have her there to whip everything and everyone into shape for the big day!From day one of planning, she was with me all the way. Always had great suggestions and ideas for when I could not decide or make up my mind. Definitely would recommend to future brides and would use for future events. :)

Shawon was a wonderful wedding planner. She came in to my chaotic wedding planning frenzy and made everything so simple, even when we changed our plans countless times. Shawon was patient and flexible with her time and her suggestions were very helpful. She was committed to helping us make our wedding day special and beautiful. Thanks to you Shawon our wedding was beautiful and we had a great time. Thank you so much. We love you!

– S. Brown

Signature Designs by Shawon truly helped to make our wedding day special and memorable. Shawon was committed to making our wedding dreams come true from the time she was hired until the actual wedding day came. She advocated for my husband and me with our hired vendors. She also made sure that all vendors clearly understood and focused on what we wanted to happen on that day. She assisted us with everything from hiring our DJ to choosing a wedding favor. Since neither my husband nor I are from the Charlotte area, it was great to have someone with a vast knowledge of the area to give us advice about vendors and rehearsal dinner options

– K. Thompson

Thank you so much for being amazing. All of your help, guidance, and advice during the wedding planning. You have helped to make it a great experience. You have been invaluable.

I spent months looking for someone to do my makeup for my wedding day & I had a hard time finding someone who specialized in doing makeup for weddings and who had experience doing makeup for people of different cultures. I was about to give up my search and go to the mall to find a makeup artist when I heard about Shawon. I found her to be very upbeat, personable, and knowledge about makeup products when I met her. Shawon went shopping with me and my mom for makeup products to ensure we had everything that we needed to create my desired look on my wedding day. I felt like a special bride to have a makeup artist help me find makeup that was especially suited for me & and my skin type. Shawon offered consultations before my wedding for my entire wedding part to ensure everyone would have the right look.

Thank you for helping make Sonya’s dream wedding come true. Everyone that attended tells me it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever attended- just perfect. Having you assist us was one of the smartest things we did. Your attention to all details went beyond our hopes. “Stunning” “elegant” ”the most wonderful wedding I have ever attended” These are just a few of the things that family and friends said about the wedding. We all would have to say that it was truly a fairytale wedding and we have you to thank for helping us make this a spectacular event.

– S. Bell

Shawon you accepted the challenge and truly created a wonderful Retirement party for me and my family. It was beyond my expectations. The decorations and food provided a wonderful atmosphere for me to say my goodbyes. Shawon, you contributed to a lasting memory that I will cherish forever. I appreciate your work ethic and highly recommend your work!

– L. Nicholson

SDS assisted me in planning the 1 year old birthday party for my daughter, McKayla, in Rock Hill, SC. SDS provided onsite coordination the day of the party, provided catering, entertainment and guest list management. The customer service provided by the staff of SDS at the party was exceptional. The guest absolutely LOVED the games and everyone (adults and kids) had a GREAT time!! I was able to relax and enjoy my daughter’s party because SDS took care of every aspect of the day. Thanks Signature Designs by Shawon!

– M. Martin-Sumter

Shawon McClure-Fields owner of Signature Designs by Shawon planned and caterer my daughters baby shower January 2010. She was very helpful in planning the event and doing all the shopping. Shawon and her team decorated the room beautifully and everyone was very pleased, especially my daughter Jessica. Shawon thank you for everything, you and your team were amazing.

– M. Lee

Shawon you are one of a kind. Your organizational skills, high energy and innovative ideas are unmatched. You were efficient in planning my “Surprise” Retirement party-from the secret invitations for a few special guests to the thoughtful goodbye gifts. Everything was tastefully and carefully done. I highly recommend your services to anyone.

– P. Hawes

I cannot say enough about Shawon and the SDS team! She has been named the “Superstar Wedding Planner” by my venue. I first met Shawon after being a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding. Shawon was the wedding consultant. I was very impressed by her work ethic, the timeliness of the wedding and how she encouraged and made the bride feel special. I knew when I got married that I would want to use her. Two years later when I became engaged, Shawon was the 1st person I contacted. Swaying my budget-conscious fiancé was going to be hard, but after the initial consultation his only words were “book her!” We chose the partial planning package. We were married in Greensboro but live in Charlotte. Shawon made planning the wedding from a distance so easy. She was always accessible when needed either in person, by phone or email. I loved how she took my vision for the wedding to another level. She still gave me exactly what I asked for but her suggestions and ideas made everything even better! Shawon found creative ways to keep me on budget and we were even under budget in some areas. Shawonmade me feel like I was her only bride. She regularly called to check in with me and was there to comfort and reassure me whenever I felt overwhelmed. Anytime there were problems that came up, I didn’t worry because Shawon took care of them before they could become an issue. Our venue said that she was the best wedding consultant they have ever worked with and have begged her to come back. All of the other vendors that Shawon introduced me to provided superior service as well. Our wedding began at 6pm sharp and flowed smoothly from beginning to end. I can honestly say, it was a perfect day and I would not have been possible without Shawon and SDS! I was able to wake up on my wedding day stress free and confident that the day was going to be everything I had dreamed of and more…and it was. Hiring SDS events was the best wedding decision we made. As my fiancé stated, SDS was worth every penny!
