SHELBY PEADEN, Owner, Lead Planner & Designer

“I find joy in getting to know my clients and nurturing that relationship during the planning process. I am grateful to be the one they trust to design and execute such a momentous occasion in their lives”

Born and raised along the Emerald Coast of Florida, this serene location drives Shelby's aesthetic and her desire to create emotive and dynamic spaces. Since founding Shelby Peaden Events nearly 10 years ago, Shelby has planned hundreds of events using her keen since of style and extraordinary eye for the fine details. With a background in interior design, Shelby’s goal is to collaborate with her clients, translating their vision into a space that is both a cohesive blend of their personalities and a unique experience for their guests. When she is not designing events, you will find her playing with her two little boys, hanging out with her husband, or enjoying a good glass of wine with friends. 

Shelby and team nailed every detail of our wedding – our rehearsal dinner and wedding turned out more amazing than we could have ever dreamed! I literally felt like I was walking through the pages of a magazine during the events. With the combination of our work demands and planning a wedding from afar, we knew a full service wedding planner was a must. Shelby handled every detail, diffused any issues (usually without me even knowing!) and executed perfectly on our vision. She was a calming influence throughout the entire process. On the wedding day, her calm and reassuring demeanor helped all of us feel at ease. How many brides can say they were never stressed out during the wedding planning process and on the wedding day? Thanks to Shelby’s planning, Matt and I were both 100% present in every moment of the day and spent quality time with all our guests. Thank you Shelby for two perfect events!!! We would hire you a 1000 times over again.
