Shelby helped us plan our wedding to the last detail. We couldn't have asked for a more thoughtful person to be involved with our wedding. The wedding invitations were absolutely beautiful.Sent on 08/28/2010

I can hardly believe there are no other reviews for Exquisite Expressions & Events, Inc.Sent on 04/24/2009
Shelby and her assistant SAVED OUR WEDDING DAY from catastrophe. I'd had an absolutely horrendous 10-month ordeal with my original wedding planner (Jeannelle Muhammad of LifeTime Events, Inc.), which culminated in her termination with just 6 weeks until our wedding. Luckily for us, Shelby just so happened to have our wedding date unbooked.
We live out of state (California) and were super busy, as many couples are, during this particular time. We also had the additional stress of having experienced exceptionally poor service from the previous wedding planner. What Shelby and her assistant were able to accomplish with just 6 weeks, my original planner was unable to achieve in the 10 months we were under contract with her.
We secured the services of Exquisite Expressions & Events, Inc. on August 11, and we were married September 20. Not very much time--but she was able to pull off the most classy, elegant, and tasteful wedding for us! We still receive compliments about our wedding and by far, the most common adjective used to describe it is "classy." If there were any problems on that day, we were not aware. She thought of every detail, handled everything tactfully, and was even able to help me with my dress malfunction! Our entire wedding day ran flawlessly and seamlessly like clockwork, and everything began and ended precisely on time.
The flowers and decor were fantastic--from the table cloths, to the chivari chairs, to the napkins, to the uplighting-- everything was quality. She was able to understand my vision, helped shape it without compromising it (given the time constraints), and exuded and demonstrated an overall sense of competence. She was extremely timely in her responsiveness and truly efficient with our time.
Shelby has real connections and is very well-known throughout the D.C. metropolitan area. The prices that she got us for flowers, linens, and decor were absolutely amazing, a true testament to who she knows in the industry and how much they want to keep her business. She has been in the event planning business for many years and has formed genuine relationships with TOP vendors in the area. I don't know exactly how she was able to get some of the deals she got us, but she did, and all with an extremely short window of time to pull it off.
A weight was truly lifted off of my shoulders once Shelby came into the picture. Look nowhere else.
Our DJ Tamara worked with Shelby at a recent wedding and reported that she operated as a true professional. Shelby ensured that the ceremony and wedding reception ran like clockwork, and before the event was very responsive and helpful in coordinating all logistics.
If anyone could be considered an "institution" in the DC wedding market, it would be Shelby Tuck-Horton of Exquisite Expressions and Events. She's produced some of the area's best weddings over the years, and we are happy to recommend her! - Rev. Laura C. Cannon, Owner
