Shawn Mohammed’s story began 15 years ago, when he took on the role of wedding planner and coordinator for his brother’s wedding. On top of the challenge itself, he had to work remotely in New York City (where he was living at the time), while his brother was living in Trinidad.
Despite the thousands of miles separating him from his brother and soon-to-be sister-in-law, he was able to successfully coordinate and plan every last detail of their big day. Shawn left a lasting impression on not only the bride and groom, but also on the hundreds of guests who attended the wedding.
Word spread quickly about the phenomenal event, leading to rave reviews from not only friends and family, but also the local Trinidadian talk show “Community Dateline.” Shawn’s career as a wedding planner and event coordinator was officially born.
Shawn has a unique background that has shaped him into the wedding planner he is today. Born and raised on the island nation of Trinidad, he came to the United States to continue his education. While living in New York City, he worked for major luxury retailers.During his time at Bergdorf Goodman, Shawn’s exceptional customer service led to an impressive celebrity clientele.
Now residing in South Carolina, he has taken his prior luxury fashion retail experience and tailored it toward his career as a wedding planner. Shawn currently operates his own wedding planning business,Platinum Label Weddings, in Columbia, South Carolina. He attributes much of his success to his attention to detail, allowing him to plan one-of-a-kind weddings. Shawn ensures that the client always comes first, so listening is key for planning their special day. He believes every client deserves the height of customer service and professionalism. Shawn continually creates a planning experience that caters to every aspect of the wedding process, giving the bride a day she and her guests will always remember.

Shawn is a lifesaver!
Shawn was very helpful during our elopement! Due to the pandemic, we were unsure what we wanted our ceremony to look like and were still putting things together the day of. Shawn jumped in right away and helped with those last minute details. We will definitely contact him next year when we have our ceremony with friends and family!Sent on 07/30/2020

Shawn is AMAZING, really knows his craft and a kind and supportive spirit. He continually went above and beyond his duties. Even when we were hugely disappointed in a vendor of our choosing, he took it upon himself to make matters right for us, even after the wedding was long over!! We absolutely recommend him a thousand times over!! He makes you want to plan events just to experience his greatness!!!Sent on 07/31/2020
