“Stop your search – hire Sholeh! From the moment I met Sholeh, I knew I didn’t have to interview anyone else. She is so personable, professional and made wedding planning a breeze. I hired her as my day of coordinator, but she went above and beyond that. She was always available to answer my questions, big or small via email, phone or text and this was months before the wedding! She was extremely organized, provided excellent advice, input and recommendations that made me (and my mom) feel at total ease. She led the rehearsal at the church and made my very large bridal party (8 bridesmaids) and family feel completely comfortable and ready for the next day. The day of the wedding was flawless! From coordinating with my all of my vendors, to setting up the church and reception (even better than I imagined), to timing my first look, to dealing with guests who arrived 2 hours early to the reception she was on top of everything. She was always smiling and willing to help everyone throughout the night. She stayed until the very end and helped my family load all of our gifts/decor into the car – completely above and beyond. I would highly recommend Sholeh – she feels like more of a friend through the entire process and treats your wedding as if it’s her own.”
– Carly, Salvatore’s Chicago

“Amazing Coordinator! Wow, Sholeh completely exceeded our expectations! I felt pretty good about planning the wedding and just wanted some help on the day of so I didn’t have to deal with the small things, but now I can’t imagine getting through the wedding without her. From our first correspondence, Sholeh was so helpful, responsive, professional, and just generally a kind human being. Always 5-10 minutes early to everything! She made sure the wedding went off without a hitch and even accommodated a last minute change to move a table to make the dance floor bigger no problem. If there were any issues behind the scenes, I never knew because she just handled it. What a pro. I can’t recommend her enough and so happy I stumbled across her on wedding wire. Worth every penny!”
– Julia, Newberry Library, Chicago

“We were so lucky to have been referred to Sholeh when we were looking for our Day of Coordinator. She was much more! She started helping us at least three weeks before our downtown wedding of 250 people. She was thorough with creating our timeline, having a great vendor reference list, overseeing having things made for us, and putting us at ease with the final prep. On the day before and day of, she covered all the bases and more! She is gracious, creative, and experienced!”
– S. Jacobson, JW Marriott Chicago

“Sholeh Munion is an exceptional coordinator. She is professional and punctual. She is extraordinarily kind and understanding. She assisted with my wedding to ensure that it ran efficiently and despite the unconventional plans for our day. My singular request was that our wedding timeline run on schedule, and Sholeh ensured that she negotiate with the event space staff and other wedding vendors to keep everything moving in a timely fashion. Sholeh, additionally, met with me several times to ensure that she had a clear understanding of my vision at times and in locations that were most convenient for my schedule during the planning process. She responded to to any concerns I had promptly; I don’t believe I ever waited beyond a day for a reply message. She exceeded her contracted duties several times throughout the evening by assisting in an unusual role when one of my vendors abandoned the wedding without communicating with me, my husband, or Sholeh. Sholeh was very good about handling unexpected circumstances, and endeavored to shield me from a majority of the inconveniences of the day so I was able to enjoy my day with my family and friends. With nearly 250 guests in attendance, her assistance was invaluable. I cannot imagine having such a successful wedding without her support. I give her the highest praise, and would encourage anyone seeking an event coordinator to consider the incredible skill of Sholeh Munion.”
– T, Chateau del Mar in Hickory Hills

“Sholeh is a wonderful wedding coordinator. She helped me greatly whenever I needed vender recommends, help navigating family issues, organizing the flow of my wedding weekend and so much more. I also found her to be an incredibly calm and steady presence which helped greatly on my hectic wedding day. I am an out of town bride who planned my Chicago wedding from out of state. Sholeh was invaluable to me as she was able to provide me with tons of on-site information and recommendations. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about her planning abilities and her interpersonal skills when it came to the day of my wedding.”
– Ericka, Washington D.C., Wedding at Bond Chapel Chicago

“Sholeh did a wonderful job coordinating our wedding. I consider myself a pretty organized person, but Sholeh really thought of everything on our wedding day. We primarily utilized her services for day-of coordination (which I highly recommend) as well as a few planning meetings before the day to ensure everything would run smoothly. She helped us stay on time and dealt with so many different issues on the day of our wedding. It was so valuable to have her there! To name a few things, she worked with us to create a great timeline (that we were actually able to stick to!), managed our whole bridal party’s lunch orders, coordinated deliveries and arrivals for 15 different vendors/people, ran out to a local liquor store in the middle of our reception when we ran out of a couple of things, and managed the collection of all of our items at the reception at the end of the night. She went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful day, and was so worth the money! I don’t know what we would have done without her.”
– Molly, Stan Mansion, Chicago

“We were engaged in early January and decided to have an engagement of 3 months. Sholeh was instrumental in facilitating our planning process. She provided us with a sheer corpus of savvy, relevant, and varied on-line resources that helped us realize our ideal plans. She generously offered her time during the planning process for consults by phone and Skype, and on the day of the wedding she worked cooperatively alongside our caterers to make the wedding a beautiful, harmonious event.”
– Ana and Jonathan, Washington, D.C.

“Sholeh’s calm presence and wonderful organizational abilities were a much-needed help on my wedding day. She did everything from ensuring the flowers in my hair were properly placed to staying late to help my parents move gifts to the car. Sholeh was gracious, thoughtful and professional-she is someone who is able to anticipate needs often before they are even expressed, and i would not hesitate to use her services again for an event.”
– Erin J., San Francisco

“It doesn’t surprise me that everyone who knows you wants you to plan some part of their wedding! It’s not just your organized thinking, ability to anticipate needs and calming presence that every bride hopes for. It’s also your natural gifts of listening, coaching and encouraging. I think the fact that you ENJOY planning weddings is contagious. When you added my wedding keepsakes to your scrapbook, I felt like I was being placed in the hall of fame of nuptials!”
– Gigi A., Washington, D.C., Wedding in Haifa, Israel

Corporate Events

“I left Hearken Summit wanting to hug the event planner – finally found her! Thank you Sholeh Munion, CMP – feels amazing to leave a meeting with everything feeling so easy, having eaten healthfully, knowing local businesses are supported (incl local babysitting service), feeling fairly compensated and that admission pricing was fair (and full house!), and that the burdens of costs on the earth and parent-child relationships were minimized. Wow.”
– Alexa M, speaker at event

“Sholeh is one of the most passionate, detail oriented, and dedicated people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She goes above and beyond for her clients and coworkers. Sholeh lights up the room with her experience, personality, and smile. Her energy is contagious and she is able to foresee the future and plan accordingly – with option a, b, c… and I am sure she has a z option back there too. I am in awe of her and she will move mountains to make the impossible possible. Sholeh is the epitome of an Event Professional.”
Nicole K, former co-worker, Chicago

“There aren’t enough great things that I can say about Sholeh. We met when my camera operating services were contracted for her event in Orlando, and we hit it off right away. She’s cool, collected, friendly, cheerful, and fun to work around. And, undoubtedly, her event went off without a hitch because of her experience and attention to her client’s needs. Our relationship has grown since as well, and she always finds the time to stay in touch.”
– Jamie J, Florida

“Sholeh is extremely self-motivated. New to her position, she was eager to learn and learned to do her job quickly and well. We worked closely together, and I found Sholeh to be reliable and helpful, often seeking out extra tasks or assisting others without prompting. In her first month as the Executive Assistant, Sholeh was asked to plan three small conferences in three separate cities. With little assistance (as she really had it fully organized) she was able to successfully manage all the logistics for the venues and participants at these three conferences. Sholeh is good at what she does, and she really seems to do all her work with pleasure.”
– Lindsay M., former co-worker, Chicago

“Working with Sholeh, I found she combined a sharp client-focus and goal-oriented personality with an intuitive grasp of IT, which made consulting with her on technical matters a pleasure. Her high energy and enthusiasm ensured that the job got done no matter what it was, and I highly recommend her managerial and event coordination abilities to employers who are seeking someone with these types of competencies.”
– Nadim Y., former co-worker, Israel
