Shi was wonderful!

Shi assisted in setting up my wedding this year at Mt. Hood Skibowl and she was incredible. At a non-traditional wedding site, she had to be flexible and make things work. I had given a vague idea of what I wanted all my DIY decorations to look like, but when I walked in, I was so pleased to see that Shi had come up with an even more attractive and gorgeous set-up! This meant a lot to me, as everything looked so perfect. Shi had set up the ceremony site: decorated the arch and guest sign-in/welcome booth at the cocktail area. While the ceremony was taking place, she was at the reception area, coordinating with the vendors so that they (DJ, cake/dessert, photo booth, caterer etc.) knew where to set up their tables and were aware of the timeline. She also called to check in when vendors did not arrive as scheduled. Additionally, Shi adjusted the floor plan so that it was according to what was previously aligned. She was amazing! On top of that, her personality and energy were exactly what I needed that day as the bride. I had a stressful morning with hair and makeup being off-schedule and making me extremely late to my First Look, but when Shi arrived and I saw her for the first time that day, she was very calm and immediately helped me and the day itself get back into the flow of things. Thank you!

Shi made our dreams come true & is the best wedding planner in the industry!

Run, don't walk, to hire Shi as your event planner! Shi is an absolutely incredible human and phenomenal at what she does. She made our wedding day better than anything we could have possibly dreamed. In every stage of planning she is very organized, communicative, professional, and kind. She has such wonderful ideas and her execution of the plans is top-tier. It was such a relief to have her as our guide, cheerleader, and friend throughout the entire process. We can't imagine having gone through the planning and wedding without her. Truly, she is so reliable and talented. She works so hard and is very detail-oriented. She is collaborative and adaptable. When we needed her direction and guidance, she was there. She anticipated our needs and suggested date nights and relaxation breaks. I can't emphasize or speak highly enough about Shi as both a person and as our wedding planner. A few of our guests may or may not have proposed to her as well (that's how wonderful she is)(: We had guests from all over the U.S. and from Norway, and the ones who aren't married yet said they want to fly her out to plan their weddings, because that's how great she is. We love Shi so much as are so eternally grateful for all she did for us. Hire her for your event planning, it will be the best decision (besides marrying your partner) you will ever make!!!

THANK YOU SHI!!! WE LOVE AND APPRECIATE YOU SO MUCH!

Everything detail was perfect!

We're a photography/videography team that recently worked with Shi as the planner at a wedding. She had us looped into the planning process with the bride and groom from shortly after we booked with them until the morning of the wedding. At the event, she had herself and an assistant that were always running around making sure every aspect of the wedding was ready to go, going according to plan, or being cleaned up. They had answers to all of our questions and were always checking in to see if we needed anything. We could not have asked for a more seamless, detail-oriented, excited-to-be-there planner to work with. We'd highly recommend her to any of our couples.

I have always enjoyed planning events. I have informally planned birthdays, baby shower, graduation parties for my friends, & Mother's and Father's Days for my local communities etc. I was a PhD student when I took on a more formal leadership role in event planning. I was the license-holder and organizer for TEDx events. From ideation to execution, my team and I had organized some of the most funded and most attended TEDx events since the organization was founded. This year, I have assisted 6 weddings so far & I am loving every aspect of it. It would be my dream come true to plan your wedding!
