"Shelley was amazing choice for our wedding day. Not only was she responsive, answering all of our questions leading up to our one month out appointment, she offered suggestions on decisions that would make our lives easier- things we hadn't even though about! She listened to what we wanted and her execution was everything we could have hoped for! She was patient and flexible and despite not having the rehearsal at the venue, she made sure everyone knew where they had to be and when. She set up and tore down for us and made sure we were organized with all of our vendors. We did not have to worry about a thing. It was a huge help and a decision that we would make again. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!" [Wedding]
Shelley was so great to work with! She was extremely helpful and professional when it came to working out some issues we had with the venue. We got so many compliments on the details of the party and all of them were her idea! She is well worth the small fee. If I could do it over, I only wish I'd have hired her sooner!" [Wedding]
"Shelley was hands down the very best decision we made for our wedding! In the beginning, I wasn't really sure if I needed one because I've always been a DIY kind of girl, but within weeks, Shelley provided me with help for things I hadn't even thought of. For the actual wedding day, I didn't have a worry in the world, because I had realized all the things I had forgotten that she had already thought of and taken care of! The only criticism for Shelley is that she is grossly underpaid for the work and services that she provides! I can honestly say that the only reason why my wedding was so perfect and flawless, is because she was our coordinator! Thank you so much Shelley, you are without a doubt the best!!" [Wedding]
"EVENTS with SHELLEY was absolutely wonderful! We are an out of state couple so hiring Shelley for full service planning was the best decision we made! She was indispensable and we view hiring her as a huge gift to ourselves. She has so much experience, she’s there to point out a few things you may have missed or just didn't think about and had awesome ideas to add to our day - that was so appreciated! Shelley and I worked together to get everything knocked out so early, that for months leading up to the wedding I had absolutely nothing to do- AMAZING! I was really able to enjoy our engagement and never once stressed out and that’s all because of Shelley! She knows so many wedding vendors around the area and she guided me to all ones who made our day a dream come true! Shelley was warm and kind, replied quickly and knowledgeably to all of our questions, and remained a calm, reassuring and loving presence through the entire planning process through to the day of. We arrived in Greenville from Kentucky early in the week of our wedding and got to spend time with all of our out of town guests without a worry in the world. The day of our wedding she was incredible! She executed everything with intelligence, intuition and a relaxing demeanor. I was able to soak up the day and truly enjoy myself and my husband. and I know that's because she was constantly working behind the scenes to make it that way. I cannot imagine not having her through the entire process but especially on the day of the wedding. Not only is she an amazing wedding planner, she is also an amazing person. She is a MUST HAVE for your wedding day." [Wedding]
"We hired Shelley to do our ceremony and day-of organization, and I am so thankful we did! She was very thorough leading up to the event, and went out of her way to take things off of my plate. She graciously drove to Charlotte a day early to be there for our rehearsal, which ended up being important as we were still working out some last-minute details. She was always patient and kind with our rowdy group, but also knew how to reign them in and keep us on schedule. I had complete faith in her abilities, and was able to sit back and enjoy my wedding day without having to think about any of the details - she took care of everything! We love her and loved having her and I would recommend Shelley to any future bride or groom!" [Wedding]
"Shelley was absolutely amazing! We opted for the full service, but she went above and beyond; she helped with vendors, sent reminders, met with us to discuss layouts and design boards, and always asked if there was something else that she could help me with. She creates a timeline throughout the process with is very helpful to the wedding party and to vendors. Hiring Shelley was the best decision we made!" [Wedding]
"Where do I even begin. We knew Shelley through friends and I reached out to get to know her better – even in our first meeting she provided such great insight and knowledge about weddings that we knew she was a keeper. After our one-month-out final meeting with our venue and Shelley, my husband (who was skeptical of the decision to hire a coordinator) looked at me and said, “She is worth it and then some.” Although we only hired her for day-of, Shelley really took care of almost the entire last month of planning and putting details together for us, making sure all our vendors had what they needed. She gave us the peace of mind to allow us to spend the entire week of our wedding hosting and spending time with family and out-of-town guests (over 100 of them!) while she handled the work. What a RELIEF it was to hand the details over and not have to worry about them. If I could go back and do it all over again, I probably would have hired her for even more help from the very beginning – I have an eclectic taste and I think she could have helped me bring my vision together more clearly from day 1. Shelley went above and beyond for our wedding day and I am thrilled to now call her a friend of my own (not just the mutual acquaintance we knew before). My biggest piece of advice for all of my friends and fellow Upstate brides has been HIRE SHELLEY! Best decision you could make." [Wedding]
"To say that Shelley was absolutely fantastic would be an understatement! We faced several last-minute challenges on the day of my wedding, as we got about 7 inches of snow the night before. Shelley actually came in a day early to make sure she was there the morning of the wedding, which was such an incredible relief to me. By the time I had a meeting with her, she had come up with Plan B options for ALL our vendors who were worried about not getting there. She worked closely with the venue staff to fill holes and she kept tabs on all vendor statuses (and kept me updated) as they made their individual calls about driving in the snow. All of this, of course, in addition to the normal Day of Coordinator duties of a non-snowstorm wedding! Shelley absolutely went above and beyond in challenging circumstances to make sure that our wedding went as smoothly as possible despite numerous hurdles. I'll be honest – when I first started wedding planning, a coordinator was at the bottom of my priority list. After the encouragement of friends and ending up with money in the budget, I decided to hire Shelley and I am SO GLAD that I did. Looking back, a Day of Coordinator should have been an absolute TOP priority, and Shelley did an excellent job. I shudder to think how stressful that snowy wedding morning would have been without her. If you are on the fence about a coordinator, as I was, let me encourage you to take the plunge. Shelley is worth the cost, and more." [Wedding]
"Shelley was a LIFESAVER. With only two months to plan my dream wedding, she pulled it off! And it was wonderful. I was an easy bride since such a small time frame, but everything she planned was very customized to exactly what I wanted. 100% recommend her to anyone!" [Wedding]
"Shelley is an amazing planner to work with! I am not the type of bride who dreamed of her wedding, and knew everything that she wanted (working with me probably wasn't the easiest). Shelley worked with me every step of the way and guided me in making decisions- Our wedding was flawless and I owe much of it to her preparation! She operates very promptly, gives great advice, has a calm demeanor, and overall is just a really great person who genuinely cares about what she is doing. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a planner!" [Wedding]
"Shelley was an absolute joy to work with. It was clear that she has a lot of experience with planning events as she was quick to point out things we had not thought about and always full of helpful suggestions on how to solve them. She is all about making your day special for you, in the way that you envision it. She made sure to contact all of our vendors before the actual day so that they were familiar with who she was and knew who to go to the day of the wedding for any questions or concerns. The day of the wedding she was the first person on site and immediately went into action: putting linens on tables, directing band members and caterers where to set up, helping the florist set out arrangements, and making sure that the wedding party was all in the places they were supposed to be. She directed our ceremony flawlessly. I would highly recommend her for any type of event: extremely nice, thorough, and thoughtful. We love Shelley!" [Wedding]
"I can't say enough good things about Shelley. When I was looking for a "day of" planner (which FYI she is so much more than that) i met with several people before deciding to work with her. It was refreshing meeting someone who truly loved what they were doing. She worked with me to make my wedding dream become a reality. Not only did she help me find vendors but she worked with the design aspect of my wedding. I had many "Pinterest dreams" and Shelley was able to show me exactly what could be done on my budget. I highly recommend Shelley if you are looking for a wedding planner or day of event planner!" [Wedding]
"Shelley was not our wedding planner specifically, but did help plan and coordinate a large community event for 5000+ people and did it flawlessly! We had never paid anyone to help coordinate this event in the past but she was more than worth the reasonable cost in the headaches saved and the vendors she connected us to. Shelley responds to concerns and questions immediately, is very organized, and great to work with. She took a high-stress environment and made it manageable for everyone to enjoy. Thanks again Shelley!" [Social Event]
"Shelley is a true PRO! Her talent and abilities with coordinating events are outstanding! From small to large events she is always on the ball and we love working with her. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for wedding coordination services! One of the best!" [Vendor Referral]
"Shelley is great to work with and really wonderful under pressure. She was able to pick up the event and made it run without a hitch. I would use her again, 100%." [Social Event]
"I don't think our day could have happened without all of the help from Shelley! Thank you!" [Wedding]
"I am writing to thank you for your extraordinary work at our wedding. Your attention to detail was remarkable. You were able to execute my vision with just a few phone calls, even when I didn’t have the words to describe what I wanted. I loved your intricate spreadsheets which asked questions I hadn’t even thought of! On the day of the event, I was certainly a bit frazzled. But you kept things moving along at a great pace. When I didn’t plan enough time for making my own floral arrangements, you stepped right in and produced an amazing tablescape. Your direction to the vendors was great as well! No one came to me with questions before the wedding because you were right there to handle it all! Your event timeline was spot on for the day of. Rusty and I didn’t have to worry about a thing during the whole event. That made for a wonderful evening that we were able to fully enjoy. Thank you for making our special day even more special." [Wedding]
"We highly & enthusiastically recommend Shelley for your next event, wedding, etc!! She did an outstanding job of bringing our ideas and goals to reality while also suggesting and incorporating her own complimentary and creative ideas. We basically knew the overall theme and had plenty of ideas for our wedding, but we needed help to make certain the night came together smoothly. Shelley not only saw our vision clearly but also created some unique and imaginative ideas of her own that, without a doubt, helped create a BEAUTIFUL and MAGICAL night. Shelley worked with our florist, photographer and the caterers before, during and after the ceremony. Her communication with everyone involved allowed for a FLAWLESS ceremony and celebration. If it weren't for Shelley, we wouldn't have the incredibly beautiful memories (or stunning pictures) that we now have and treasure. I was never a believer in hiring someone for doing tasks I thought I could do myself. But after our experience with Shelley, I am a firm and avid believer in hiring a professional especially when the day is too important to risk any other result." [Wedding]
