Kudos and Praise from our Brides

Getting married in a pandemic is no joke and Shumaker helped us create our vision in a different setting! We worked with JoAnn, who was super responsive to e-mails and adapted as restrictions changed many times. They took care of everything from the setup to the teardown. We were very impressed by their selection and their photos can really help guide you if you don’t know what you want! We had the beautiful ladder with Edison bulbs and elegant drapery. They really added little touches that completed our beautiful day!


YAS!!!! We went back and forth on if we should add Shumaker’s gorgeous drapery to our special day. It looked phenomenal in the photos, but did we really need it? Well, I am so glad we did. Shumaker’s draping transformed our already gorgeous reception space into something from my wildest dreams. When I saw it being set up it truly took my breath away because it was even more spectacular in real life.
We got ready in the room attached to the reception area so I got to see the entire place transform, and my bridesmaids said over and over again how unbelievable the room looked with the drapery.
The crew that set everything up was so kind and JoAnn who I worked with on the back-end was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. If you want to elevate your day to a true fairytale, I highly recommend Shumaker for your special occasion.



“I seriously wish I could give them more than 5 stars across the board! This is an absolutely amazing company to work with, and the effects they created for me were out of this world. I was blown away by how beautiful they made the space look. They took an already stunning space and transformed it beyond even what I imagined. It was absolutely perfect! The whole team was also really friendly and easy to work with. Shumaker was amazing with helping me get everything all set up, and my day of manager, Alex was fantastic! He let us know when he was done with set up so that I could come in and see everything before the craziness of wedding day really got into full swing. It was amazing to have a moment to myself to take it all in. They really went above and beyond to make sure my whole experience was perfect. I can’t recommend this team enough. Absolutely amazing work! ”


Shumaker – PDT helped give us the finishing touch to our dream wedding! They were so helpful and answered every single question we had. Our chandeliers and drapery were ready before the rehearsal. The whole experience was professional and no hassle to us. Our guests LOVED the look of the rooms for the ceremony and dinner. We are so happy we decided to add these to our wedding.

Shumaker is such a great company to work with! We rented four chandeliers and dramatic doorway drapes (to hide our reception room while guests attended the ceremony), and we couldn’t be happier with our choice! Shumaker delivered the services exactly as described, were professional, courteous, and easy to work with! The added details that Shumaker was able to provide for our wedding made all the difference in our photos, and was well worth the money! My husband and I highly recommend working with Shumaker for all of your decor and lighting needs!!!

This was the easiest and one of the most professional meetings we had during the entire wedding planning process. We changed our minds so so many times regarding what we wanted and they still were able to come through! We had a brand new design proposed, last minute, and Shumaker came through within a few weeks and they had it ready for us! I would recommend them to anyone looking for quality and peace of mind when planning.


Shumaker helped to make our wedding day absolutely perfect! The moment I saw some of their decoration options, I knew that I had to have them. We chose to have the ladder hung in our venue with the beautiful large Edison bulbs hanging from it. All of our wedding guests commented on this piece and it truly helped to bring the entire wedding decor together. They were so easy to work with throughout the planning process, very prompt with communication and were so great on the wedding day! I highly recommend!


Shumaker was a joy to work with and super accommodating even when I added more items onto the list of decor a month before the wedding. They were organized, efficient, professional, and responded to any questions I had quickly. The day of the wedding the decorations really made the space (the cork factory hotel ballroom) look magical. We rented Edison bulbs to hang over our sweetheart table, uplighting, drapery, twinkle lights, and barrels. All decor was installed as planned and looked gorgeous.
