    An absolute gem

    What can we say about Shelby. She is amazing! We met her at a wedding show and so glad we did. She is very responsive and made sure we were on track with our planning and was very patient with me when I was indecisive and helped me so much with various tasks. Planning our September wedding certainly brought its challenges with COVID. We were very uncertain about whether or not we should postpone or go ahead with our original date. We had to significantly reduce our guest list but Shelby provided a lot of support to help us plan our big day, ensuring we all stay safe without compromising our vision. The day went off without a hitch and we were in such awe of how much Shelby hustled during the day. She was a real superstar - even going under tables to fix a few uneven legs!

    Shelby also has a wide range of decor we were able to rent, making it a much more affordable choice than running around and buying different decor. I gave her our vision of what we wanted the space to look like and had her pretty much decorate how she saw fit to my simple, rustic theme, and she did not disappoint.

    Shelby is a must-have for any bride looking for a planner, whether that be one who will be there to answer all your questions and keep the bridezilla in you at bay, and/or coordinating the day so that it's everything you've dreamed of and more. It's a no-brainer, take it from a bride who normally needs to control everything in her life. I trusted Shelby to take care of one of the biggest days of our lives and she did that and so much more. All the stars for Shelby!

    Amazing service!

    I have used Shelby for my wedding décor, including a LOVE sign rental. It was such a pleasure to work with Shelby. She was very accommodating and dropped the items the day before my wedding. The LOVE sign was absolutely stunning and was a great additional to my reception venue. I have received a lot of compliments from the guests. I would absolutely recommend Shelby to anyone.
