"Behind The Veil proved to be one of the best investments that I made during wedding planning. 

My planner really brought the fun back into the process for me. I loved that she embraced my ideas and feedback throughout the process, because like me, she's a creative spirit with a ton of great ideas. I know my wedding turned out better because of her. We really became like long-time friends that could laugh and joke about my crazy ideas, anxieties etc."

Shari King-Thomas

I've been in the wedding planning industry for over 14 years. As a former middle school and high school Language Arts teacher I was a natural project manager and wrangler of people. I was always a creative with a passion for all things interior and fashion design, so I naturally gravitated to wedding planning as it incorporated these elements and so much more. Overall, I love the institution of marriage, and as a wife and minister, I'm able to bring my couples clarity about their purpose of coming together that lasts well beyond the wedding day.
