Hey! I'm Shannon Valente, your game master and bona fide wedding planner with over 10 years’ experience in the wedding and events industry.

As a certified planner of awesome weddings (Wedding Planners Institute of Canada), I've helped many couples plan and pull off the weddings they’ve always wanted, many of which have been featured in publications such as 100 Layer Cake, Wedding Chicks, Wedding Sparrow, Wedding Bells, Rocky Mountain Bride, Aisle Society, Hey Wedding Lady, and more.

Trust me - I know first hand how stressful planning a wedding can be. There are endless piles of information available today for couples with hopes of pulling off the perfect day. Most provide you with informative content but lack guidance. It gets overwhelming and somewhere along the way, wedding planning stopped being fun! With The Wed Life Challenge, I’ve designed a game whose sole purpose is to make wedding planning enjoyable - as it should be!

After planning hundreds of weddings, I know exactly what it takes to successfully plan a beautiful, stress free wedding, and have helped countless couples around the world do exactly that. Wedding planning should be fun, and now, it can be again!

truth bomb: planning a wedding can be super stressful and a lot less fun than you thought it would be, am I right?! That’s why I created this freebie for you. I want you to go in with a wedding game plan, so I’m showing you where to start first and why.
