I had fun making jokes back-and-forth with Shay the day of our client’s wedding. Happy I got to work with Shay and hope I get to again!" - 2023 Client's, Wedding Florist

'I cannot say enough good things about Shay!!! She made our day run so so smoothly. She is organized, always available, and on top of everything! I didn’t have to worry about anything the entire wedding day. She came on about 8 weeks before the wedding and took over with all vendor communication to ensure everyone arrived on time. She set all the tables and did all the decorations for us and made the ceremony and reception look so beautiful. She had so many ideas on how to make our wedding special!! She even passed me my drink in between all the family pictures! I wish I could get married again just so that I could hire her again!!! From making sure us and our parents ate, keeping the whole day on schedule, getting the wedding party dressed and where they needed to be on time, she did everything!! She is so incredible; I 100000% recommend her!!" - Katie M., 2023 Bride

I just love her. I am still floating on cloud 9 following my beautiful ceremony."

Her expertise, experience and professional contacts made our long distance planning effortless.

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!" - Autumn N.

"These ladies are true professionals! Shay and her team at The Castle in Rockwall 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!!! :)"
- Reagan W., Sister of the Bride
"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!"
- Amy & Jordan Ladd, Wedding Clients
