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!Oct 7, 2019VerifiedShine Event Design's reply
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
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!Aug 31, 2019VerifiedShine Event Design's reply
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
Wedding and Event Decorating
Shine Event Design provided table decorations + centerpieces and bar decorations for our office holiday party. Shelby and I were in very close contact and no detail was missed! She did an excellent job working with me to create collective ideas and make them come to life. Everything was exceptional and she was always so quick to respond to email or phone calls. Shine Event Design is prompt, efficient, creative, and reliable. Thank you Shelby!Dec 13, 2016VerifiedShine Event Design's reply
Thank you Robin! I loved working with you to make your company's party shine. I had a great time brainstorming creative possibilities with you and was equally thrilled with the way the venue came to life with our ideas. Such a beautiful evening! I look forward to working together again!
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!Mar 24, 2019Review from Google
Shelby at Shine Event Design is the real deal! You will not find anyone more intelligent, organized, well networked, caring, skillful, observant, and deeply experienced to work on one of the most important events of your life. My partner and I needed help to plan and execute a party/reception at a local park to celebrate our marriage. We wanted something unique to our relationship and values. It was difficult to find a wedding planner who wasnt awash in heteronormative notions and practices to help us. (Though she could pull off any type of event.) Shelby kept apace of our meticulous needs and wants. Since we had been in Seattle a short time, she was a literal gold mine of resources. She knew who to call and how to negotiate with vendors. She was excellent with both the macro overlook of the Gathering and the micro details, including financial considerations. Everyone she connected us to were amazing people and skilled professionals. Our Gathering was magic! It ran smoothly: the food and entertainment was excellent, the tables were elegant in a rustic setting, the day of program was devised smartly to provide a predictable event structure that opened up the space for an abundance of FUN and real connectivity between our guests, (most of whom were from out-of-town and had not met before.). The JOY of the day lives on in our memories, the intensely positive feedback from our guests resonates in our hearts, and the continued enhanced connection we had with our loved ones will last a lifetime. Thank you Shelby for your grace, sparkle in the eye, incredible skill, and thorough commitment.Oct 16, 2019Review from Google
