    Best coordinators to make your day happen!

    Carrie, Shauna and Meghan were wonderful to work with. I could not have pulled off the day of my wedding without them. They helped coordinate with all my vendors, did all the set up and take down, filled my drinks and made me a dinner plate so I was sure to eat. They cut the cake, pinned boutonnières, and gave me all kinds of advice and tips. The list goes on. They did anything I needed or asked. Very friendly and professional. I knew my day would be perfect and trusted they would pull it off, and they did. I highly recommend aRay of Events!

    Skilled, Affordable Day-Of-Wedding Coordinators

    We hired a day-of-coordinator from aRay of Events for our wedding and worked with Courtney (DOC) and Meghan (assistant). They were able to travel to Hermann, MO and Courtney even attended the rehearsal the day before. I cannot say enough good things about them. Everything went off without a hitch and I wasn't even aware of most of the set-up they were doing. I got so many compliments on how well planned my wedding was. We filled out a few google docs with details for what we expected on the day and had one quick zoom meeting a week prior to the wedding. They helped coordinate vendors, set-up decor, run the ceremony, remind us of vendor payments, and clean up after the reception. At my request, they even packed up my car at the end of the night with any take-home items, which was so awesome. They were 100% worth it and I definitely recommend hiring them.

My name is Shauna. I have always loved getting the family together to celebrate all of our milestones. Once my family and friends started getting engaged, I started managing and planning weddings as a hobby. I stepped away from my career in special education in 2019 to run a wedding venue. I love managing and planning weddings and all sorts of events. I decided to start my own business, aRay of Events, in 2021 to continue serving my clients though Event Planning and Wedding Management.
