10 Questions with Sheavonne Harris

1. Introduction: What's your story?

I've always been the wedding and events go-to person for my family and friends. In 2004 I decided to marry my love and skill for flawless event execution. That is how Events by Sheavonne was born.

My clients appreciate my impeccable style, attention to detail, and tireless work ethic. I have the best team any planner could dream of. Together, we go above and beyond to make sure our couples have the wedding planning experience of their dreams, no matter what! My journey as a wedding planner has allowed me to cross paths with the most amazing couples. I enjoy hearing their love stories and learning their vision for the wedding day celebration.

I've curated a network of the best vendors and worked at some of the most unique venues. The ultimate goal of Events by Sheavonne is to make our couples enjoy an event filled with love, laughter, and support.

I've been planning weddings for 17 years. I've helped over 100 couples journey to the aisle

We offer Day of Coordination and a la carte services

Our rates are flat fees based on the details of the couples event. That includes location, type of venue, number of guests etc.

I have a wonderful team of five.

6. What happens if you're sick or otherwise unable to be there on the day of the wedding?

Yes, we create a full timeline that includes every detail of the wedding day.

10. Can you create a timeline that tells everyone involved in the planning process (other pros, members of the wedding party, to-be-weds and families) what to do and when to do it? How will you make sure everyone sticks to the schedule?

Yes!
