We attended an amazing Marriage Enrichment Workshop hosted by Shon Barnwell Events, LLC.  The entire event was A+! The host and facilitators went above and beyond to create and lead us through an engaging and thought-provoking experience.   We had a wonderful time engaging with the other couples and enjoyed the on-site activities.  Thanks so much for all the awesome tools and gifts you sent us home with to keep the fire burning and us learning!  Truly enjoyed the teachable moments to stay as one.   We highly recommend this workshop for other couples!

Marriage Enrichment Seminar

Shon Barnwell Events, LLC is the premiere event planning company in the Middle Georgia area. My husband and I attended a marriage seminar hosted by Shon and were blown away by the level of detail, care and effort that went into every aspect of the event. Shon embodies excellence in all she does, from the welcome materials and execution of the event down to the feeling (and swag) she sends you home with. We were blown away by both the event and the professionals she brought together to make for an insightful, impact filled day with many new friends in the community. When you hire Shon for your event, whether personal or professional, you can rest assured that you have a planner who will put her absolute best into every detail!

I have been to multiple events planned by Shon and just recently booked a cruise with her. The events I attended were planned amazingly and so extremely elegant. I couldn’t imagine anything better. Then I had the absolute pleasure of learning what an incredible travel planner she is. Unfortunately, our cruise was cancelled due to COVID-19 but she made the past year waiting for this cruise so special. Fun games were mailed to us, amazing tips, positive and encouraging notes were sent to us, a box full of goodies that was VERY unexpected and so much more. I can’t imagine what our cruise experience would have been like. I can’t wait to go on the next adventure with Shon. She is an amazing business woman!!!

Wow, I am overwhelmed and about to cry over the love I feel from you. I received my package and I’m sitting here looking at everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. You are truly a class act. I already knew that though. I can not wait until we can set sail, safely. Much love and hugs going your way. Shon Barnwell Events, LLC is the best!

“I submitted endless resumes for positions with local Contractors at Robins Air Force Base with no success. Shon’s intake process captured my goals; properly detailed my capabilities; and matched my experiences with current vacancies. I posted my resume on a popular job site and in 10 days, I was offered a position with a local contractor! Shon, thank you for my “homework” sessions and for sharing your knowledge. Your attention to detail and dedication to talent development is exceptional! I am referring everyone in search of career services to Shon.”

Extremely impressed! Thank you so much to Shon for the over the top execution at our events. We used Shon at our last two work events as our planner and could not speak more highly of the professionalism and attention to detail that were provided to us. Shon was there early and stayed late to make sure every part of the plan was accomplished. Shon also interacted and engaged with agents and clients alike make all our guest felt well taken care of. Thank you again Shon!

I can’t even begin to express the gratitude my family and I feel for ALL the hard work you put into Mom’s event. Most could have gotten the large details right – renting the hall, food, etc – but it’s the small details that really make an event special. You, Ms. Shon, took this event over-the-top! You treated my Mom as if she were yours. Her people are still singing about that go-go. Love you.

Totally blessed to have the opportunity to sail with longtime friends, two of whom were sailing for the first time. Shon’s attention to detail put the first-timers at ease as well as the seasoned cruisers. Her meticulous planning for the group’s cruise booking, lodging, pre-board dining experiences, port parking, cruise reception with welcome boxes, group excursion, and the prize and gift opportunities each evening were all executed to true perfection; all signature elements of a Shon Barnwell Event. I anxiously await the next adventure with Shon Barnwell Events.

Shon, I woke up this morning with an overwhelming sense of gratitude to you for the amazing job you’ve done with my formal invitation! It represents me so well … the words of BETTYE – magnificent; the dress on the cover, the picture of me young and wise, the greeting, gratitude, and all the rest with such clarity for the reader. With tears of joy as I write, thank you again.

Please accept my grandest appreciation for the service you gave me, in particular regarding the Juneteenth Cultural Exploration 17 June, 2017. The day was simply extravagant. You gave me the best part of your imagination and I am forever grateful to you. I will not hesitate at my next opportunity to join you in a celebration of the magnitude of my experience. Thank you again. Please know that words cannot express the depth of what I feel right now. You are a truth-servant. Many blessings to you and your family. I also thank my friend, Linda Gray for nominating me in her stead.
