Couldn't Have Imagined a Better Experience

Shay Brown Events played a *huge* role in our wedding. They managed the venue that we got married at (Asheville Masonic Temple), and also were the wedding planner and coordinator for our event. Our planner, Alex, was fabulous. My husband and I opted for a less traditional wedding with a courthouse ceremony and reception later in the week. To be honest, my husband and I were overwhelmed by all of the details of planning the reception. I am so grateful that Alex took the time to help us understand the ins and outs of working with vendors, things to remember, and ideas to make our non-traditional reception an *absolute smash*. The days leading up to the reception and the throughout the reception, we had full confidence that every detail of the event was handled with grace and composure. Every member of the Shay Brown team was a pleasure to work with, and was so dedicated to creating a special event for their client that I couldn't recommend another vendor more.

Amazing wedding coordinator

I never could have made my wedding vision come alive without Amy from Shay Brown Events. Of all my wedding vendors she was the most important. Her professionalism was unmatched and she was always very responsive. She made me think of things I never would have on my own and always gave me alternative options when I was unsure about anything. She made sure everything ran smoothly on our wedding day. Thanks to her our big day was absolutely perfect.
