Testimonial – Craig & Melanie 2010 InStyle Event Planning
InStyle Event Planning Letter of Recommendation
February 14, 2011
We were referred to Shellie by a colleague of my hairstylist at Tops Salon. We spoke with several other event planners for our wedding planning, but were most impressed with Shellie’s credentials, references and previous work, including the “Best of Knot” recognition she received for her wedding work.
We were so thrilled with all aspects from planning our wedding to the clean up on our special day. Shellie knew how to find just about any resource to accomplish her client’s needs. We wanted to have our wedding in our backyard and she was literally able to take every one of our ideas and transform our yard into a tropical paradise…exactly what we had envisioned.
She also put together a menu consistent with the theme, including foods that would appeal to adults and kids alike. We must admit that her recommendation for the mac & cheese bar was the hit of the wedding. We know this wasn’t part of the “theme,” but sometimes, kids and theme don’t always go together. Shellie and her team were able to make it work. In fact, we’re not sure who like the mac & cheese bar more, the kids or the adults!
Not only was she able to create a beautiful, memorable scene in our backyard, she did it within our budget, which can be a challenge with events. She was very easy to work with on all details and accessible for any updates needed. In short, we would highly recommend Shellie. She was a one-stop shop for everything we needed, including day of coordination services. She made sure everything, from the flowers, to the chairs, to the food, to the beverages, and the timing of the event came together exactly on schedule and as desired. She turned our beautiful day into a magical moment and we will be forever thankful.
We don’t know what we would have done without her and would strongly encourage anyone who has event needs to hire her and her team. You will be dazzled!
