Hiring Shelley to design and plan our wedding was easily the best decision we made. During the planning process, she promptly handled communication with vendors and kept everything moving smoothly. While listening to our vision for the day, she designed a beautiful event that left all of our guests awed. I was so impressed by her attention to detail in design which resulted in adding so many elements to our wedding that I simply couldn’t have imagined. We were looking to plan our wedding in only 60 days after rescheduling due to COVID, and Shelley helped us to find the best vendors and get everything planned in that short time span. Even when a Tropical Storm threatened our plans, she came up with a rain plan that I still felt would be beautiful and special. Most miraculously of all, when our venue lost power the day of the wedding, Shelley kept her cool and got generators onsite and a new caterer all in a matter of hours. I could have been freaking out that we didn’t even have power, but knowing that Shelley was on it put me at ease while getting ready so that al I had to do was get pampered and enjoy the day. Overall, Shelley is great at what she does and I really can’t recommend working with her enough! As a bride who showed up to her wedding venue with no power during a Tropical Storm, trust me that you want to have the reassurance of knowing that your event is in Shelley’s capable hands.Sent on 11/11/2020
Events with Shelley's reply:So happy we connected Rebecca and I was available to be there for you and Daniel! This wedding will stay with me as a favorite from planning to design to day-of. You were so great to work with in the 60 days leading up- your organization and personal vision made it so easy and fun for me to plan and design out. Truly a day for the books but in so many memorable ways. Cant have great memories without a few laughs. You and your entire group of friends and family were seriously the best and most gracious of people. I would plan a wedding with no electricity with you any day! All the best to you both - keep posting those photos - you were a stunning bride!

Best in the business!!
As a full time manager at one of our two wedding venues in Asheville, NC , Shelley made the planning process insanely easy. Shelley planned well in advance, always came prepared and had answers to questions before I asked them ! She made the communication between the client and us very transparent and would recommend Shelley to any and all clients! As a manager of a wedding venue we work with numerous wedding planners from all over and Shelley has surpassed any and all expectations and standards previous wedding planners have set over the past years.Sent on 11/04/2020

Shelley is a Lifesaver
Shelley was a complete lifesaver for our wedding. She thinks of things that you normally wouldn't, was super attentive and responsive, and so helpful. Thank you for everything!Sent on 06/04/2019
Events with Shelley's reply:I do not know how I missed replying to this!!! ahhh! Molly, you and Jay were so chill and responsive to my ideas which I always appreciated. I love running into both of you at events. I think you are more on the social scene than I - and love it!!!
Shelley is a true PRO! Her talent and abilities with coordinating events are outstanding! From small to large events she is always on the ball and we love working with her. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for wedding coordination services! One of the best!
