I recently was the DJ for an event with Countdown Events. When I first met Shannan and the staff, I knew they were something special and vice versa, so I just fit right in with their system of servicing their clients. 

The professionalism of Shannan and her business partner is amazing! They are beyond extraordinary people to work with. I could go on and on about how many last minute changes come their way and they never

skip a beat.

Shannan and her team took the stress out of planning my son's graduation party. They were creative and easy to work with.

The day of the event they were well prepared and helped solve the

few issues that did arise.

I would highly recommend them!

“Shannan put together an 11th birthday 80s karaoke bash for my daughter and her best friend that will never be forgotten! All of the decor details and planning were amazing and lots of girls had a lot of fun!”

“The first time I met Shannan was when she was the Emcee for a nonprofit fundraising event I was attending. She did such a great job, I reached out to her to help with some events I had coming up both for my business and my daughter's school frundraiser.

Over the years, she has helped with many projects from small scale (balloons) to hosting large fundraiser events for me.

Every time she has

knocked it out of the park. Additionally, I’ve recommended Shannan and her team to friends multiple times and everyone has wonderful experiences. Her employees are wonderful too and go above and beyond. They are always on time and make sure everything is just as I like. They’ve even helped with some last-minute adjustments to make my events perfect. I look forward to working with Countdown Events again

in the future! “

"Countdown Events was the perfect fit for us. Matt & I wanted a rustic but elegant themed wedding.

Also being a member of the Baptist community, we went the non-church route so we could have a dance floor to celebrate with all of our friends and family!!

Countdown Events did 90% of the work which relieved stress from my family and fiancé'

Shannan and her team are super awesome to work with. They make the vendors and guests feel welcome and always accommodate the needs of each individual event. Always a great experience!

Highly recommend!


Ah Snapp!

Shannan was amazing to work with. Planning a wedding is so stressful, especially when you and your husband are both full time at your jobs and many vendors don't have weekend availability to meet. Shannan made it so easy and got us connected with many of our vendors. Within a month of the wedding, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. She was able to get with her baker and get us gluten free desserts and ceremony cake.

I also decided on videography pretty close to the wedding.

She got us in contact with her amazing videographer and even helped facilitate our meeting.

We have footage of our entire

3-hour wedding of all parts.

The day of the wedding, I couldn't have done it without her and the Countdown Events team. I didn't have to lift a finger all day and got to enjoy my family, friends and most importantly my new husband.

If stomething went wrong,

I still don't know because it

was all so smooth.

I wish I could get married or have another party just so Shannan could coordinate again.
