Incredible!

Aray of events was amazing to work with! Shauna and her team helped make my wedding just what I wanted it to be, without her it we wouldn’t have been able to make our dream a reality! I had high expectations for what I wanted our wedding to be, and gave Shauna a huge job to do, and she truly nailed it! She worked really hard to make sure everything was set up properly, and helped make the day run super smoothly. I couldn’t recommend her more! Thanks for everything everything you guys did, it truly couldn’t have turned out any better!

Exceeded Expectations

I cannot express enough how happy we were with the exceptional services provided by aRay of Events. From our initial consultation to the very end of the wedding day, every aspect of the wedding was handled with precision, care, and professionalism. Most importantly, their ability to alleviate any stress or concerns we had throughout the planning process. They were always available to answer our questions and provide valuable advice. On the day of the wedding, they orchestrated everything flawlessly. From coordinating vendors to managing the timeline, they ensured that everything ran smoothly, allowing us to focus on celebrating with our family and friends. I cannot recommend aRay of Events highly enough to any couple looking for a wedding planner or day of coordinator. Thank you!

Hire shauna & her team!

Shauna and her team (shout out Taylor and Chris) were absolutely invaluable for our day. Shauna brought our vision to life when we changed venues (we switched from an outdoor venue to indoor - she was even able to source us trees at a reasonable price!)

Shauna took the time to meet with us many times to make sure we had everything right. And when some things inevitably went sideways - out of her teams control (i.e. our bakery never made our sheet cakes/delivered them) - her team stepped up and figured out solutions. In fact, I didn't even know until a few days after our wedding!

Shauna truly went out of her way to make sure no ask of ours was too big and on the day-of her team was there for anything us, or our families, needed. I could not recommend Shauna and her team more highly!

Owner/Wedding Planner

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.

Hi, I'm Courtney!

I started off planning events for family and friends, and became a professional wedding coordinator in September 2020. Planning and organizing is truly my happy place! I have known Shauna for over 20 years, and was so excited to be able to work for her when she started her own business. I got married on Halloween in 2016, have two amazing children and two dogs! Most of my days are filled with family, I have a passion for tacos and love to read! I cant wait to help you with your next event!

Hi, I’m Meghan!

Wifey, Momma of three, and event planning/decorating enthusiast! My love for both started my junior year of high school when I was part of our prom planning committee. Fun Fact: I also attended Shauna's wedding that year! I’m a “planner” by nature and enjoy seeing those plans come together. I’ve always thought of wedding planning as a dream job! Like other brides, I was planning my wedding even before my husband and I started dating. My heart is to serve others by helping both brides and grooms have their special day turn out better than they could have ever imagined!
