With more than 9 years of experience in special event planning, allow me to create a truly unique and beautiful event for you! I often hear from my clients that it was my eye for detail, my thoroughness, and my steady and practical approach that assured them early on they had nothing to worry about. I apply the same high standards and care to each and every one of my clients.



Every couple deserves the attention and care needed to transform their beautiful, one-of-a-kind love into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind wedding.

Every couple deserves the attention and care needed to transform their beautiful, one-of-a-kind love into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind wedding. I can’t help but see a wedding as a blank canvas. I love creating environments that are intimate yet refined, romantic yet understated, filled with soft lines and warm light, all to encourage people to connect and reconnect, to love and to feel loved. I have a passion for detail but more importantly, I understand how to make all of these details work together, to contribute to the whole of the experience, to the single and all-important Moment. Because when you look at a painting, it’s not only the brushstrokes that matter, it’s also the feeling you walk away with.

My career in special events began with event planning for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. While it has expanded since, I’ve not forgotten where I found my start. You’re looking for someone who is able to artfully craft and competently orchestrate your special event, and I’m certain you’ll find those qualities in me.

My Bachelors in Business from Duquesne University has served me well in planning both small and large non-profit fundraisers and private events, including anniversaries for Mine Safety Appliances and Xpyria Investment Advisors and galas for the Humane Animal Rescue and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre.

I’m energized by handling the many logistics needed to ensure that the event progresses on-schedule. I strive to take on whatever I can, so that those celebrating can focus on each other, their colleagues, their friends and their families (and not on administrative tasks) throughout their special day.

Truly, it’s everything else that goes into making the experience, all of the carefully chosen details, that transform a good event into an elegant, tasteful and unforgettable one.

from our couples:


I’m telling you .... EVERY BRIDE NEEDS A SHAYNE! Shayne made the whole process easy and fun! She helped with absolutely everything, from helping us to hone our theme and plan our budget to selecting the perfect downtown venue and negotiating all of our contracts! Our venue was a blank slate and Shayne helped us to plan and organize all the details to truly bring the space to life!


I knew that I could completely trust her throughout the process... From start to finish, Shayne was so professional, warm, caring, and attentive. Throughout so many points in the planning process, Shayne went above and beyond, and I felt SO lucky to have her guidance and knowledge along the way! With Shayne’s help, I was able to keep my sanity and stay calm so that I could truly ENJOY every step of the process!
