Shannon Royal

Owner & Principal Planner

I am most passionate loving Jesus and loving people. At the heart of everything I do lies my relationships with my family and friends, as well as my clients and vendors. And I fully believe a genuine community creates an atmosphere of excellence, grace, and trust --- the core of Bespoken.

I've been planning weddings and events since 2002. My clients are yearning for guidance and struggle with juggling their time, so they are looking for someone to make the planning process as stress-free as possible while creating a beautiful, meaningful event. Valuing understated elegance mixed with what’s in style, remaining calm under pressure, and excelling at logistics, I am dedicated to executing not only a tailored, flawless, and refined event for you, but one that tells an unforgettable story to your guests. My priority is to create a stress-free planning experience for you so you can focus on what matters most to you.

My day begins with a cup of coffee and a few minutes away from the clock, working out and reading. From then on out, I'm a busy woman + event designer + boss lady combo. And it thrills me to death to do what I do. Between meeting with clients, mulling over idea boards, planning meals, and orchestrating details, I also enjoy working out, reading, and spending time with friends and family. Like our events, it's the simplest things in my life that make the biggest impressions to me. The first green sprout in the Spring, the sound of the ocean waves, and feeling the sun on my skin are some of my favorite simple joys.
