Shannon K. Wendt-Heath
Hello! My name is Shannon and I am the Director of Communications and Lead Designer for the decor division at A+ Event Entertainment.
If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would be working in the wedding business, I would have laughed! My background starts with a double degree in Biology and Wildlife Biology with an English minor, and my work history includes several years as an automotive quality engineer. So the question would have to be, how does a woman who has spent over ten years in the automotive field translate to helping you coordinate, plan and design the decor for your wedding? Three words: "Attention To Detail."
When I first met Thomas, the owner of A+, I would occasionally field an email or two. It then became making a few sales calls. When I finally realized there are few things more important than helping someone plan one of the biggest day of their lives, I was hooked! Instead of writing failure analysis reports and corrective action, I was talking to happy couples!
What do I listen to? I've loved music ever since I can remember listening to my mom sing the classics of everything from Patsy Cline to Motown. I can never remember a time when music wasn't playing in our home! I have carried that love of music into adulthood. I can be found listening to anything from Django Reinhardt (Thanks Tom!) to trap music to alternative rock to 90s music.
Favorite party starters? At my own wedding, we opened the dance floor with a mashup of oldie dance tunes (Hello, Swinging the Mood!), newer stuff from Bruno Mars and some slow classics from Elvis and Jackie Wilson.
