what people say
There is no one I could recommend more than Shaun and her staff.
"Every question we had was answered, and more! There was never a doubt in our mind that we had chosen a stellar company to help our wedding go off without a single hitch. There isn\'t one thing we regret about our special day, and that\'s all thanks to the hard work and special attention to detail that Shaun provided for us. Thank you so much, for making our day matter."

Meet the Team
Shaun M. Teague
founder, curator of happiness
Wedding Planner , Coordinator and Floral Designer to fabulous Cue The Champagne Couples, Mentor to wedding and event planners around the world Co- Author of The Planners Unplugged, Secrets of the Worlds Greatest Event Planners, and Seven Time Wedding Planner Award Winner, are a few of the hats that I wear, but the two most important of all is that of Mom and Wife. I share my chaotic Northshore home with my right hand, best friend, and wife Kenya. She is laid back, funny and down for all my instagram shenanigans. She is the ying to my yang. Our sons John Henry and Koop are my pride and joy. Until becoming a mom I never knew a joy like this. As an entrepreneur I revel in the freedom to show my boys a world without limits and glass ceilings. As you can see we love family, so creating intentional moments and dreaming up ways to make your day even more magical for you and your loved ones is a top priority.
Past clients describe me as no fuss, organized, professional, calm under pressure, responsive, thoughtful and FUN , because who wants to work with someone stuffy and uptight? Planning should be full of laughs and excitement, so don't be surprised if I burst out in a two step or song to get you to crack a laugh!
I am a self proclaimed hugger! If I meet you once you are a friend. I dream in color. I believe that the world is a richer place where diversity is widely accepted and each day brings a new opportunity to get a little closer with a neighbor and get a little bit uncomfortable getting to know someone new, and explore the beautiful differences we each bring to this melting pot.
I wouldn't say that I am the life of the party but a party with me present always begins with a bottle of sweet Moscato paired with a sweet decadent treat that's sure to put a dent in everyone\'s diet. I love laughing so hard that I cry and crying so hard that I can't complete my sentences. Life is always worth living, I love moments with my family and friends and I want nothing more than our clients to experience that same joy and LIVE life on their special day !

What People Say
"Where do I even begin with Shaun and her fabulous team! From the moment I met her she put my mind at ease and I knew she would make this exciting/nerve-wracking process so much easier and fun! Day of, it's like she could anticipate my needs and knew exactly the right thing to say or do. When a bridesmaid's dress ripped down the back, she was there sewing it up. If you are in the market for a wedding coordinator, your search ends here; there simply isn't better than Cue the Champagne!"

The BEST Wedding Planner
"Hiring Cue the Champagne was hands-down the BEST decision I made. I planned my Chattanooga wedding from my home in Atlanta, and I truly could not have done it without the help of Shaun and her team! I was lucky enough to find Cue the Champagne through my venue, The Church on Main. From the first phone call with Shaun, I knew I wanted her help planning my wedding.
Shaun and her team work closely with the absolute best wedding vendors in the Chattanooga area. Everyone we booked (catering, florals, videography, etc.) all came from Shaun's recommendation, and they were all truly amazing. If I was ever stressed about anything, no matter how small, Shaun was always willing to hop on a call with me and talk through everything I was worried about. Every single time she managed to immediately calm my nerves. She's amazing at talking to you like an old friend, but one who has tons of experience in the wedding industry and is a true professional. Another one of my favorite things with CTC was the access to the online planning portal through the Aisle Planner. The portal was key to keeping everything organized, from signed contracts, records of payments, and design ideas. When it came to the actual wedding day, everything was planned down to the minute. I was able to just sit back and enjoy the day knowing that everything had been coordinated with every vendor, and I literally had nothing to worry about. There is not a single thing that I would change about my planning process and wedding day. It was all absolutely perfect, and that is 100% due to Shaun and her team!"
