"From the vendors she matched us with, to the final design details - we were obsessed with everything. She was always available to listen and provide honest advice during the planning process. The wedding went to unbelievably smoothly - if anything went wrong we still have no idea. Shelby and her team were superstars. My husband and I didn’t have to lift a finger, we just got to enjoy and celebrate with our guests."

"At our first meeting, Shelby took the time to get to know us as a couple, and it was evident that she was genuinely invested in making our wedding day reflect our personalities and vision. Throughout the planning process, Shelby was always accessible, approachable, and quick to address any questions or concerns we had. She provided all of the tools to make the planning process as easy as possible. Her expertise and experience in the wedding industry was evident, and her advice invaluable. On the day of our wedding, we were able to relax and enjoy every moment, knowing that Shelby and her team had everything under control. The ceremony and reception were flawlessly executed, and the decor setup was even more breathtaking than we had envisioned. We received endless compliments on how smooth the wedding went and how beautiful everything was and we truly owe it all to Shelby for bringing our vision to life. Shelby’s ability to handle unexpected challenges with grace and professionalism reassured us and allowed us to fully savor the occasion. Her calm demeanor and positive attitude were a source of comfort, and we are so grateful to have had her by our side on such an important day in our lives. In addition to being an incredibly talented wedding coordinator, Shelby is a genuinely kind and caring person. It always felt like we were working with a friend rather than just a vendor. We will forever cherish the memories of that day, and we are so thankful that Shelby played such a significant role in making it all possible."

"Hiring Shelby was the greatest decision we could have made for our wedding! Her dedication and meticulous attention to detail truly made our wedding day an unforgettable experience." 

- morgan + jared

"Shelby was absolutely fantastic to work with throughout our process of throwing a big “wedding” celebration. My husband and I had a COVID wedding and really wanted to mimic a reception without a ceremony and had a very specific vibe in mind. Shelby not only fully executed that, she came up with unique ideas and vendors that perfectly brought our vision to life. We would highly recommend working with her and hope to partner with her again in the future for all of our event needs!"

"She was incredibly thoughtful about budget, innovative around making unique ideas come to life and all around a pleasure to work with."

-alexandra + erik

She flawlessly managed every aspect of our day, from coordinating with vendors ahead of time, to creating a detailed timeline that ensured everything ran smoothly. Her meticulous attention to detail was evident in every aspect of her work. Throughout the planning process, she showed incredible thoughtfulness and consideration. She took the time to truly understand our vision for the day and worked tirelessly to make it a reality. Her thoughtful suggestions and ideas enhanced our wedding experience and made it uniquely ours. Communication was easy with Shelby. She was always just a call or email away, and her responsiveness gave us peace of mind throughout the planning process. Any questions or concerns we had were promptly addressed, making us feel like a top priority. It was clear that Shelby had a wealth of experience in the event industry. Her expertise shone through as she guided us through the intricacies of planning a wedding including interactive Google docs and a suite of wedding templates to guide our planning. What truly sets Shelby apart is her commitment to going above and beyond. She didn't just meet our expectations; she exceeded them. From ensuring every centerpiece was perfectly aligned to seamlessly managing the flow of the day, she left no stone unturned. Everyone, including our parents were so grateful for Shelby because she allowed everyone to relax. She even packed up everything at the end of the night and brought it to our hotel room before we even got back from our after party. In the end, our wedding day was a flawless and unforgettable experience, thanks to Shelby and team. We were able to savor every moment, knowing that she had everything under control."

"Our wedding day was an absolute dream come true, and we owe a significant part of that to Shelby and team. From the very beginning of our planning journey, we knew we were in capable hands."

- alessandra + mark

"We hired Shelby as our day of coordinator and from the start she went above and beyond. She joined calls with vendors and asked to be included on every email correspondence to ensure nothing slipped through the cracks. For us, working with Shelby meant two things: 1. We could go into our wedding weekend knowing nothing was missed and 2. We could focus on enjoying the most important parts of our wedding day, time together and with our loved ones. From vendor coordination to steaming bridesmaid dresses, and guest assistance to reception breakdown, Shelby and her team didn't miss a beat. Simply put, working with Shelby was the best money we spent on our wedding. It would have been the best money spent even if it were 3x the cost."

"Shelby and her team didn't miss a beat. We could go on for hours about how much we recommend hiring them."

-abigail + patrick

Working with Shelby for our wedding day was an absolute pleasure. Out of all of the vendors we hired for our big day, Elevated Events was by far the best money we spent! She and her team proved to be extremely competent and experienced event professionals, and knew exactly what needed to be done to ease a stressed out brides worries. Due to their excellent planning and coordination skills, everything on our wedding day went off without a hitch, and my now husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that the logistics were in more than capable hands!

"Throughout the entire planning and execution process, Shelby was thorough, punctual, communicative and extremely helpful."

-giuliana and dominick

"Shelby & the Elevated Events team made our wedding day seamless. We did not have to think about one single detail on our wedding day thanks to Shelby & her team! They were so professional, friendly attentive and extremely prompt. Any idea or task that came to mind, no matter how small, when it was mentioned to Shelby or her team, they made sure it was done immediately and this continued until the end of the night. It was such a pleasure working with her over the past year, we have already recommended her to another couple who booked her for their upcoming wedding! Many family members and guests told us how great Shelby & her team were, and they were some of the best money spent on our wedding!"

"Throughout the planning process, Shelby was amazing with her responses and knowledge. She never hesitated to book an extra phone call or send ideas to us."

-Kathryn + john

"We hired Shelby for month-of wedding coordination services to help ensure our wedding day was seamless and carefree – and she did just that! She helped with day of timelines, coordination with vendors, and ensuring everything was running smoothly from us getting ready through the end of our reception. We are so happy we chose to work with Shelby and highly recommend!"

"She made us feel at ease the months leading up to the wedding, and especially the day of."

-cASey + chris

"We don't even know where to begin. I am a professional event planner so handing over our wedding to someone else was terrifying. We were not local, and I am a self-proclaimed control freak.  She helped us with vendor recommendations, building our timeline, organizing the different elements, and walking us through every detail of the day. She was with us the night before to rehearse and was there the entire wedding day, long after the last guest left. There is nothing that she and her team can't do. The best decision we made during our wedding planning process was hiring her as our planner. There are many wedding planners out there, but she is truly special. She was as invested in our day as we were and went above and beyond to make it magical. It felt like she was part of our family. We really can't find the words to do her justice. Honestly, we will miss talking to her now that our wedding is over and can't wait for the opportunity to work with her again. If you are thinking about hiring Elevated Events - do it."

"When we met Shelby we immediately felt at ease. She was calm and professional, but also so easy to talk to and upfront and honest."

-shannon + troy

"She was a guardian angel, ensuring that every detail was taken care of, leaving us with nothing but pure bliss throughout the entire celebration. She effortlessly guided us through the planning process, carefully listening to our dreams and desires, and turning them into a reality beyond our wildest imaginations. She handled everything with grace and precision, from coordinating with vendors to orchestrating the timeline flawlessly. Her creativity and flair were evident in every aspect of the event, the charming décor perfectly reflected our personalities. Shelby's expertise truly shone through as she expertly navigated any unexpected challenges that arose with a smile on her face, leaving us with nothing but joyous memories. She effortlessly managed everything, allowing us to bask in the love and warmth of our guests without a worry in the world. To say that we are grateful for Shelby's incredible work would be an understatement. She made our dreams come true, and our hearts overflow with love and appreciation for the unforgettable experience she crafted for us."

"Our wedding day was nothing short of a fairytale, and that is all thanks to Shelby's meticulous planning and unwavering dedication."

-ellen + ben

"Shelby and team were fully worth every single dollar. She was super attentive leading up to our wedding and because she was so plugged in it allowed us to show up to our wedding and actually enjoy the day because she was coordinating across all of our various vendors in the background and problem solving stuff as it came up (and we didn't even know or have to deal with it). Cannot say enough about how awesome Shelby was to work with throughout the whole process, we especially loved how we could ask Shelby for her opinion and input and we knew we would get a candid, unbiased view. Shelby was fully committed to helping us have the best weekend ever and throw an amazing party. We'd recommend Shelby to anyone we know!"

"Shelby and team were absolutely amazing to work with. They were highly responsive, thoughtful, and flexible with the scale of our wedding and family dynamics."

-lynrenee + patrick

"If it weren’t for her, things would not have gone as well as they did. She bustled my dress, made sure I had a drink, had her assistant run out and get a new cake when ours fell, and so much more she did just to make sure our wedding was perfect. She was easily the best decision we made for our wedding and I could not recommend her enough!"

"Shelby and her team were absolutely incredible and helped make our wedding run smoothly and seamlessly."

"After the conclusion of our wedding, my husband and I both said the only thing we regretted was not hiring Shelby sooner! We hired Shelby in October for our March wedding per the recommendation of a close friend. It was truly the best decision we made! Shelby made sure I stayed on track throughout the planning process, especially in the hectic months leading up to our big day. She provided me with organizational tools and checklists to help me check all the necessary boxes as our wedding approached. Her design style is also top notch! I valued every piece of advice Shelby gave me regarding wedding tips/tricks, design/decor elements, and more.  It was such a relief to know that everything was under control because of Shelby and her team. From organizing and setting up decor, to steaming my dress, to making sure our *very* rowdy wedding party was in their places, Shelby did it ALL with ease! She even helped me through a mini bridal meltdown when my hair started to frizz thanks to the rainy weather and humidity. She is extremely talented, professional, organized, outgoing, friendly, kind, hardworking, and overall incredible at what she does. THANK YOU SHELBY for making my day beautiful, stress-free, and one to remember!"

"On wedding day, we would have been lost without Shelby and her team. They took care of all the minuscule details that are usually very easy to let fall through the cracks."

-kelsey + phil

We hired Shelby and her day-of team for partial planning services to help us plan our August 2022 wedding. We brought Shelby on in October of 2021 and from day one, she made sure things were running smoothly and that we were on track to have our perfect wedding. She went above and beyond to meet with vendors and provided helpful feedback, while ultimately supporting the decisions we made. Beyond being an amazing planning partner (and cheerleader!), Shelby made sure the day went perfectly. I truly cannot stress enough how much work she put into ensuring the ceremony was perfect, the space was flipped quickly, the tables were perfect… it still amazes me that she pulled it off so seamlessly. Everything was in place for our day and at the end of the night everything was packed up and made it back to our suite. Shelby and her team ensured that we did not have to worry about a thing on our wedding day and could simply be present for our friends and family. I knew we were in capable hands, but seeing her work her magic on the day of our wedding – all while smiling and keeping completely cool – just made it so abundantly clear that we made the right choice to partner with Shelby to create our wedding. 

"We wholeheartedly recommend working with Shelby to help create your perfect wedding!"
