Rel(EVENT) Event Planning specializes in designing creative, personalized events that are organized, relaxed and prepared for anything! Every wedding is unique and the creative details make your guests feel welcome and appreciated, which we think you will agree, is the best way to thank them for being with you to celebrate your love and your relationship, right?. Those details take time & coordination and we have the experience and the passion to know weddings so well, that we think of everything! And then add just one more special detail, like a small bouquet of flowers in the bathroom, or giving your groom a mint right before you walk down the aisle, to make sure you love your weddfing day! Having someone to execute those details behind the scenes, allows our couples and their families to relax and have fun all day long! We have so much fun not just decorating, setting up and preparing your day, but also getting to know you and your family so we can address them by name, have some fun, and make ourselves available to everyone all day long. At rel(EVENT) we love "all thinkgs wedding" and know exactly what it takes to make a special day go smoothly and handle hiccups when things don’t go quite as planned! In fact we thrive on handling the unexpected, so we can show off our "fast on our feet" problem solving skills. Not that you will ever know, because we do our best to make sure you have a fun, meanningful and memorable day.

The best decision for your wedding day!
If you’re looking for a wedding planner who truly cares about the couples she works with (below is our story!), listens to their desires for how they envision their wedding day, and executes the day flawlessly, Shellie with Rel(EVENT) is the perfect planner for you! Working with her was the best decision we made for our original wedding plans, as well as our revised COVID wedding plans! Without hesitation, we would recommend her to anyone searching for a wedding planner who will make the experience as stress-free, organized, beautiful, and enjoyable as possible!
As we all know, 2020 hasn’t been going according to plan for many of us 2020 couples. My fiancé and I planned to get married surrounded by 170 family members and close friends before moving from Pennsylvania to Minnesota, where we both would be beginning new jobs. Like most COVID couples, our original plans for our early June wedding slowly over the course of the spring began to become less and less feasible, causing lots of stress, disappointments, and true sadness. What made it even more difficult was how to not feel selfish or alone in the situation, because COVID was clearly impacting so many other people around the world in various ways, many worse than having to postpone or cancel a wedding. Shellie checked up on us and me periodically to ensure that we were doing okay and provided as much virtual support as she possibly could have. She reached out to me right away when our local government announced that we would not be opening before our wedding date and began brainstorming with us. If it wasn’t for her calmness, positivity, and true gift for planning events, I don’t know what we would have done! She walked us through rescheduling our 6/6/2020 wedding to 6/5/2021 and in one month, she put together and organized our petite wedding that was still held on our original date. To say the day was better than we could have ever imagined is an understatement! It was perfect, special, and unique in every way and that is all thanks to Shellie! My fiancé and I originally planned that we were just going to do something quick in our parent’s backyard, but Shellie had a greater vision for us and it was really important to her that 6/6/2020 still remain the beautiful once in a lifetime day that we had been looking forward to for so long! She found us a new location (Lock Ridge Park in Alburtis, PA), organized the romantic, social- distanced décor, found us an amazing soloist, ordered our cake, and coordinated the timeline with everyone involved. We performed our self-uniting ceremony under the June sunset, surrounded by our parents, siblings, and grandparents (who were socially distanced in rings of rose petals). It was truly magical, filled with smiles, tears, and so much love! At the end of the day that’s what it is all about right?! We really cannot thank Shellie enough for taking our COVID lemons and helping us turn them into delicious lemonade! She took what was going to be such a sad day for us and turned it into the best day of our lives, one that we will be talking about forever! As much as we are looking forward to our rescheduled, larger event that Shellie has also been planning with us since 2018, we will always look at 6/6/2020 as our unforgettable wedding day!Sent on 07/09/2020

Wonderful Wonderful WONDERFUL!!
Where do I even begin?Sent on 08/12/2020
When I first started my search for a wedding planner, my main goal was that I wanted to hire someone who cared about MY vision. I wanted someone I could connect with and trust for the most important day of my life. I was getting rather frustrated after speaking with planner after planner and the main focus being about money and not building a genuine relationship with me that made me as confident as possible on my wedding day. Then the stars aligned and I called Shellie. After one minute of chatting with her I knew I was going to hire her. Shellie has such a natural talent for what she does. She was able to take my ideas and expand on them every. single. time. She was able to make suggestions that I didn’t even think of, but fell in love with because she had taken the time to understand my style and what I wanted. She was able to make things happen and do it with a friendly smile on her face and positive attitude. Any problems that arise, she was more than capable and trustworthy to spin any negative into a positive twist and keep the day moving. I can’t say enough positive and wonderful things about Shellie! But don’t take it from me anymore, I STRONGLY urge you to pick up your phone and give her a call. She WILL NOT disappoint you.
Rel(EVENT) Event Planning's reply:Gosh Cassie! Can I hire you as my publicist?!?! Thank you so much! Your words mean the world to me and I feel really lucky that we met, we planned and will remain friends for a very long time! Be happy my firmed! You so deserve it!

Intimate Social Distancing Wedding
I am not a bride, but as the Mother of the Bride, I have to share what a huge lifesaver Shellie has been for our family. After 10 years together, my daughter and her fiance were planning their wedding for 2 years. Shellie was helping to guide them through the process, not forgetting any details. We had so many questions and Shellie was always there for support and guidance. When faced with the pandemic of Covid-19, our visions of this beautiful day in June was quickly disappearing. Shellie supported us through the whole process and was there the moment the decision was made to postpone. Since my daughter and her fiance were moving to start a life together in Minnesota from PA, the thought of waiting to get married was not in the plan. What were we going to do? The courthouses in the area where not even open. Shellie saved the day and in a few short weeks, she pulled together the most romantic and memorable day for us. In the midst of all the disappointments COVID was causing in the world around us we were able to celebrate them in the most beautiful way. Thank you rel(EVENT) Event Planning, we could not have done it without youSent on 07/09/2020
