  • High praise and only awesome things to be said about Shay!! My comments mirror previous reviews: Shay is fantastic, organized, efficient and proficient, involved, and caring. Her sense of decor and decorum is excellent. While it is natural to be nervous and stressed before your wedding, it ALL works out with Shay in charge. I highly and enthusiastically recommend Shay for your wedding!

  • If you want the perfectly organized and run wedding, look no further than Shay and her team. She was extremely knowledgeable about the industry and very familiar with my venue as well. She is also able to wrangle family members and wedding party into place with ease, easily explaining the process and how it’s going to work. I highly highly recommend Shay!

  • I cannot emphasize how absolutely AMAZING Shay is. When I say we could not have pulled off our wedding without her, I mean it 100%. Shay is incredibly responsive – always just an email, text, or call away, knowledgeable, and attentive. She’s fun to work with and very detailed in what she does. You MUST hire Shay for your wedding!

  • I have had the privilege of helping plan several weddings over the years, but this latest wedding was the first time using a planner as it was out of town. Shay was incredible and hands down the best coordinator I have ever met. She was organized and professional yet so easy to talk with and had tons of experience and insight. Whenever something would arise, she calmly took care of it and put us all at ease. Thank you, Shay, for helping us make this wedding happen!!! You are amazing!

  • Shay’s professionalism, positive attitude and attention to detail is off the charts. From our initial contact to saying goodbye the day after the wedding, she was consistently available, excited and on top of every detail and deadline. Shay was equally attentive and considerate to all involved in the planning and implementation of our son’s wedding. Her expertise, experience and professional contacts made our long-distance planning effortless. The actual wedding exceeded all our expectations and was the most beautiful and organized evening imaginable!

  • Excellent job!!! We loved working with Shay for our wedding and she truly pulled off the wedding of our dreams. Every little detail was perfect, and I (the bride) didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day of. We had some strange requests, but she pulled them off without any hesitation. She was very professional but also just fun to be around. I would highly recommend Shay and her team.

  • These ladies are true professionals! Shay and her team made it their mission to see that my sister’s wedding was phenomenal… and it was! They handled literally every single detail and every issue (big and small) with such poise and a calmness that eased all worries. They were never without smiles, extra pairs of scissors, water, tape, safety pins, and even hugs! Shay felt like the long-lost cousin who came in and took over for us. She and the other amazing staff at The Castle made this an enchanted wedding fit for royalty. I would recommend this magical place and this incredible team of planners to everyone I know!!!! Book them now!!!

  • It was an absolute pleasure working with Shay. She was attentive and made sure everyone’s needs were addressed and taken care of ahead of time. She was immaculate in all the details and place settings, floral, placement of every detail so that it was just right. I loved working with her and would be thrilled to work with her again in the future.

  • I could not have made this day so perfect without the help of Shay. Everything was beyond perfect and ran so smoothly because of all the hard work she put into making our wedding magical. We cannot thank her enough!

  • Shay did an amazing job for our micro wedding! We wished to have a fusion style ceremony to blend both of our cultures and she brought it all together perfectly. We cannot thank her and her team enough for how smoothly everything went. Seriously consider Shay and her team for your celebration!

Amy & Jordan Ladd

  • A top priority was to work with someone who would keep us in “wedding planning reality.” We had a budget, a vision AND still wanted to have a magical night. We highly recommend engaging with Shay early in the wedding planning process because she saw the big day long before we had all the pieces put together and knew exactly how to get us to the finish line flawlessly. We knew we had chosen the right person long before our guests confirmed what a beautiful night it was, but it was so nice to share such special sentiments with people near and dear to our hearts. Thank you, always! xoxo!

  • In November 2015, as well as providing floral services and table decor for my son’s wedding at Olde Dobbin Station in Montgomery County, Gloria served as my Day Of Coordinator.  I was at a loss of what to do as I was planning a wedding 4.5 hours away, but Gloria came to my rescue! I had all my vendors lined up and had paid my deposits.  I gave Gloria the balance due checks which she delivered as vendors arrived – caterer, videographer, photographer, DJ, cakes, place settings and linens.  She had everything set up according to my directions and her florals were gorgeous as well!! There were no complications or issues.
    In that I first used Gloria for florals and table decor for my daughter’s wedding at Ashton Gardens in May 2014, I knew we worked well together and it was a true blessing she would serve as our Day Of Coordinator for my son’s wedding in Houston! I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her!!
    I’ve sent many friends her way and continue to recommend her to anyone who I think could use her services!  She’s very professional, meticulous, dependable and very easy to work with!
