Introduction: Nice to meet you! I'm Shelby, the Creative Director of Shine Event Design. I founded this company to help people like you celebrate every great moment in life. We provide a full spectrum of event planning services that consistently win rave reviews from our clients and their guests. From wedding days to intimate dinner parties and every celebration in between, we love making each event completely unique for the people being celebrated. In addition to planning and coordination, our studio provides boutique floral design services that are uniquely designed for your celebration. We offer these services separate from our planning services or in combination- as it best fits your needs. Our clients tell us that their guests are still raving about their event (even months after it has happened)! I've been party planning for my entire life. As a child, I threw the best parties in the land and, as a professional, I continue to exceed my client's expectations for their big days and life milestones. When selecting venues together, developing floral design, brainstorming thoughtful gifts for guests, selecting the perfect dessert, or building a vendor dream team for your event, I have a great time getting to better know my clients and suggesting small ways to leave a lasting impression on the guests at their wedding, celebration or party. Give my studio a ring or drop us a note. I'd love to chat with you about what you have planned for your big day already, what help you're looking for. (And, don't forget to introduce yourself on instagram, say hello on twitter and view some of the inspiration boards on pinterest we're working on with current clients!)

Kathryn f.

Wedding Florist

I am so glad I decided to get my wedding flowers through Shelby! She did my bouquet, cake flowers, table arrangements, and flowers down the aisles too. At first, I was going to do flowers myself to save money, but quickly realized what a task it is transporting and designing flower arrangements. Shelby talked to me on the phone for a long while to figure out my vision. She was amazing at helping me figure out what my style is and kind of helped me set my whole theme for my wedding. Everything was so romantic looking and beautiful. She’s definitely a pro. We couldn’t be happier!

Thank you so much Kathryn! Your day was absolutely beautiful and I loved being a part of it. And, I love that you thought about doing your own flowers and also loved our conversations where we spoke about the time and effort that goes into creating wedding day pieces. Flowers don't have to be an overwhelming budget item and professional provided flowers add so much to the overall look of the day! You were wonderful to work with. xo, Shelby

Wedding Florist

Shelby provided both florals and coordination for my wedding. Truly she did a wonderful job managing my catering team (they were a huge disaster), my family, bridal party, and alllll of my vendors. I didn’t worry in the least re setup day of, she had everything well in hand. It looked picture perfect upon my arrival! If you’re thinking about hiring Shelby I would encourage you to definitely do it!

Hi Haley-- Thank you so much for this wonderful review! You wedding day was SO.MUCH.FUN and I loved coordinating your day, putting all of the pieces in place, and the opportunity to make the space look even prettier than it already was. Your wedding had it all, but I'm going to remember the final all-crowd sing of Bohemian Rhapsody forever. Epic moment. xo, Shelby

Shelby at Shine Event Design was wonderful throughout our entire wedding planning process! We hired her for day-of-coordination and floral/decor. Everything turned out beautifully and exactly how we pictured it. She was on top of everything through all of our planning, quick to answer questions and provide samples, and priceless on the day of. If anything went wrong on our wedding day, we had no idea - because Shelby took care of it all. I would highly recommend her, not just for wedding planning but also for floral and decor. Thank you, Shelby!

Wedding Coordination

Shelby was simply amazing from the first day we met her all the way through our wedding day. She didn’t miss a beat and helped make sure our wedding day went off without a hitch. During the planning process, she did a great job keeping us sane when issues would arise, and calmly helped develop mitigation plans to keep things on track. We would recommend her 100 times out of 100 to plan any event and are so thankful that we found her. Thanks so much Shelby for everything you did! R & K

Wedding Coordination

In the weeks before my wedding, people kept asking me how I was so calm and relaxed... and the answer was Shelby. I trusted that everything would be amazing and it was. Shelby was absolutely incredible from when I first contacted her up through my wedding day (a planning period that spanned almost two years)! She was thorough, thoughtful, and truly meticulous in every detail that she brought to life for our special day. I couldn't have asked for anything more and am so grateful for her!

    For all of our clients (planning, floral design or decor), our typical process begins with a complimentary consultation via telephone or skype. During this time, we'll discuss your goals for the event including any theme ideas, look and feel, location, venues, budget and timelines.

    I draw upon twenty years of experience in planning, designing and throwing events of all sizes. Having lived abroad in Paris, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe, I'm artistically influenced by my travels and participation in cultural celebrations from around the globe. My creative vision is enhanced by my professional strengths of running tight, well organized events, with endless positivity and enthusiasm. I strongly believes that every moment is worth celebrating and love helping our clients bring their celebratory dreams to life!
