I give Shannon and the Lone Star Golf Club 5 stars for planning and executing my perfect wedding in May of this year. The challenges for Shannon were the fact I am 65 years old, have multiple sclerosis and live in Fort Worth, Texas. My now husband and I wanted to have our wedding ceremony in El Paso, where we grew up as Army brats and went to the same high school. It is also the city where most of our friends and family still live. So our wedding ceremony had to be planned long-distance. I chose Lone Star Golf Club over other wedding venues for two reasons 1) Shannon is a fantastic wedding planner. 2) The golf course has so many mature trees, water features and bridges. I even designed my wedding invitations and thank you notes using a large mature tree…similar to those on the golf course. Shannon made our wedding everything I prayed it would be. She handled everything from our flowers, cake, decorations, and wedding site under the trees to our ceremony and reception. She even helped us find a photographer and a DJ! When a dear friend could not walk me down the isle as planned, she stepped in to help me from my walker to two lovely decorated chairs, under a flower-decorated arch, for me and my husband to sit in for the wedding ceremony. Shannon was also a great support for me as I could not visit wedding vendors in El Paso. She met with the vendors on my behalf and sent me photos of cakes, decorations and anything else I needed. This helped me feel like I had a friend who was really taking care of things I could not. Her taste is exquisite. Also, she arranged for a discount at a nearby hotel for out of town guests. When I think back on the day of my wedding, I remember the smiles of friends and family. Our reception became part wedding celebration, part family reunion and part high school reunion. Even though it was one of the hottest days of the month, Shannon made sure everyone was comfortable getting to the wedding site by driving our guests in golf carts. It’s hard for me to find the right words to express how grateful I am to Shannon and the staff of the Lone Star Golf Club. I would highly recommend them if you want an outdoor wedding by the lake, under the trees. It was so perfect and so romantic having an sunset wedding. Our reception in the newly refurbished restaurant was perfect. In hindsight, I wouldn’t change anything. Thank you Shannon and Lone Star Golf Club for making my dream come true!
With highest regards,
