Shelby, owner of Shine Event Design, was such a pleasure to work with. She spent hours on the phone with us talking about every detail that we wanted to include in our wedding to put together a detailed quote for us that was very reasonable in price. Shelby went above and beyond our expectations to make sure the florals in our wedding were perfect.She provided all our centerpieces, bridal party flowers, chuppah/chuppah flowers, and other various design elements. I sent her my vision board and hoped for the best as I wouldn't see the final product until the wedding. When I got to the venue and saw our centerpieces and bridal party flowers I was so impressed and amazed because they were exactly what I wanted. Shelby was able to capture my floral vision beautifully with minimal direction from me. She absolutely went above and beyond for my chuppah and was able to source me a local birch chuppah that was absolutely stunning for such an affordable price. Her florals and decorations pulled all our other design elements together and really set the tone and mood for our whole reception and ceremony. Hiring Shine Event Design was a great investment and I am so happy with Shelby's work. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for floral services or event design services. Thank you again Shelby! More...

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 wasn't 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.

I can't say enough good things about my experience with Shelby. The entire process was just a dream, and the wedding itself was better than I could have ever imagined. As someone who is not from Seattle, and not familiar with the wedding world at all, I really appreciated Shelby's guidance as to her preferences and suggestions. She does a great job of providing guidance while still keeping your personality and vision in mind--I never once felt like I was being pressured into anything I didn't want. If I changed my mind on an idea, Shelby quickly and seamlessly changed course to fit the new idea without ever once making me feel like it was going to be a problem. Working with Shelby allowed me to truly enjoy the entire process of wedding planning. I loved meeting with her to talk about wedding prep; it was like meeting with a friend! The wedding itself looked like it was from a fairy tale. I still can't believe how beautiful it was, and I got a ton of compliments! Shelby kept everything running so smoothly that we were able to sit back and enjoy our day without worrying about any of the logistics. The best thing about Shelby, I have to say, is her personality. Her excitement is infectious!! You will love her and your family and friends will too! More...

Shelby made our wedding day feel like an absolute dream! She was so calm and thought of everything so we didn't have to stress. Any worry we had she was right there with a solution from beginning to end. She listened to our ideas for the day and really cared that our wedding was what we wanted it to be. Even our guests commented on how great she was. I cannot recommend Shelby enough! More...

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! More...

Shelby was the Day-Of Coordinator for my wedding, but she was there for us through nearly every step in the process. She helped us nail down vendors, she created a bulletproof timeline, she managed all of our vendors and friendors, and generally made the entire day go so, so much more smoothly. I did most of the planning myself, and so there was a lot of knowledge come the day-of that was still just in my head. Shelby was great at knowing when to guesstimate about my wishes/plans, and when to step in and ask for instructions or clarification, since I was busy with getting ready, photographs, etc. during much of the setup. She was also super flexible when the timeline needed to be adjusted due to late bridal party members or outfit mishaps. I recommend her for her skill, expertise, friendliness, and professionalism!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Shine Events and Shelby our wedding planner. Shelby was with us every step of the way. I don’t know how she did it but she knew what my ideas were before I could speak them and laid out the perfect design for us. She took the time to make sure every small detail was taken care of. I felt completely taken care of by her and even when we started to panic and feel overwhelmed she took control and assured us we were on schedule. I look forward to working with her and her team in the future. I would recommend her to any one looking for an amazing event planner! More...

I am incredibly happy and grateful that I found Shelby from Shine Event Design. From our very first phone call, I knew she was the planner I wanted for my wedding. She is absolutely on top of her game! When it came to hiring a wedding planner, I thought "why reinvent the wheel?" I knew I could find a professional who was an expert in all things Seattle wedding, and Shelby was top notch. I can't count the number of times my now-husband and I said "I'm so glad we found Shelby" or just "I love Shelby." She was there to field every single question I had, and she gave great recommendations and executed the tasks we gave her to perfection. On the day of our wedding, I expected to be a nervous wreck, but I was so calm! I kept telling people "I've been so relaxed all day...this is the best day ever." I was not worried about a thing, and it's in large part thanks to Shelby and how professional and reliable she is. Our wedding day was absolute perfection. Oh, and we're still getting compliments about how beautiful everything was! I don't have great instincts for decor and design, but Shelby does! If you're considering hiring her...do! She's worth her weight in gold! Thanks for everything, Shelby!!! -Lauren & Dave More...

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 easily able to understand what vision I was going for and helped me to find ways to create an unforgettable day. She oversaw both the Day of Coordination and the majority of our decor including our floral arrangements and seating assignments. 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! More...

We had the absolute PLEASURE of working with Shelby Reynolds as our partial planner for our wedding.
I had a baby midway through planning my wedding, so I needed someone on board who could take the reins as needed. Shelby was incredible!! She laid out a timeline early on for decoration and everything else, made sure to give me a break needed for baby time, then came back and reminded me when it was time to get started again.
Not only was she incredibly attentive to my personal needs, she somehow knew precisely what me and fiancé were looking for.
I would give her vague suggestions, and she would come back with the most beautiful design and floral ideas. She hit the nail on the head every single time.
I got so many compliments on the bouquets and decorations, it was stunning.
For the day of coordination, I didn’t have to worry about a single thing! She unobtrusive, and at the same time always right there when I needed her.
We had a situation where I realized literally seconds before I walked down the aisle that no one had the rings. Shelby told me to wave at her when I got to the alter if she needed to get them. I looked back and waved, and saw her run off immediately. All I said was that they were in my room. She got a key, found them, and got them to the best man in record time and not a single person in the crowd had any idea! I was truly impressed.

She was my lifeline throughout the planning process and day of. I cannot recommend her enough.
If you are looking for a planner, don’t look for anyone else. You need Shelby! I absolutely could not have done it without her.

From our first conversation with Shelby it was clear how well she gets to know her clients and their needs. We were planning a wedding from a distance and Shelby was always ready to discuss any aspect of our wedding and giving us inspiration on how to make the day incredibly special for us, to encapsulate who we are. She never pushed us on adding frivolous things and helped us stick to our budget. On top of her role as coordinator, Shelby was also in charge of our beautiful floral pieces and centerpieces. Her coordination with other vendors (that were not always wonderful to deal with) was superb. She is the perfect balance of friendly, upbeat, realistic, and hard working. Our wedding could not have been pulled off without her. Thank you, Shelby! More...

Shelby is the absolute best planner for your wedding. We have worked with her several times (as wedding photographers) and there is no doubt you entire day will be a breeze. She works hard with her team and takes such good care of everyone involved. I wish all of the weddings we photographed were coordinated by Shine Event Design. - Matt and Mary of Luminous Photography More...

I loved every minute of working with Shelby. It was the best decision we made in wedding planning to hire her as our Day-of- Coordinator. Not being party planning professionals ourselves, it was so awesome to have someone experienced to bounce ideas off of as we planned. Shelby was there for me when I had a few nervous bride moments about the schedule, assuring me that we could move things around just a bit and make it work. She ran our rehearsal like a pro and made us feel a little more comfortable going into the big day. Not only did we utilize her coordination services, we also contracted with her for rental of an arch and beautiful florals to go on the arch. She just made it so easy. On the day of I was blown away by how beautiful everything was. I couldn't tell my setup crew more than put a vase of flowers on each table with candles, but Shelby made little adjustments here and there that took it to another level! I would highly recommend Shelby for your wedding! More...

I can't say enough good things about Shelby at Shine Event Design. Let's just say...I already miss our daily chats as we planned my wedding! Shelby is professional and thinks about every little detail. She knows how to listen to a clients ideas and make them a reality. When I walked into our venue on my wedding day I was in tears....it was everything I imagined. We planned everything long distance and there was NO way I could have pulled off such an elegant and elaborate wedding at Chambers Bay Golf course without her help.
