About

Owner Sarah Shelby.

Hi! I am Sarah Shelby, a wedding planner with over 10 years of experience. Originally hailing from Chicago, I decided to take my passion for wedding planning to Lake Tahoe in 2021 and opened my own business, Lake Tahoe Wedding Planning. My extensive experience has equipped me with the skills and knowledge necessary to handle all aspects of wedding planning, from vendor management to budgeting, and everything in between. My dad always told me, be the best at whatever you do, and I take that very seriously!

I pride myself on my ability to understand my clients’ vision and bring it to life through personalized and creative solutions. In addition to my wedding planning expertise, I am also well-versed in digital marketing, copywriting, and content creation. This allows me to provide my clients with a unique advantage when it comes to promoting their special day and creating a memorable experience for all involved. Overall, I am a dedicated and passionate wedding planner who takes pride in delivering exceptional results for my clients. I look forward to continuing to bring joy and happiness to couples through my work in Lake Tahoe Wedding Planning.

My Passion

Wedding planning is not just a hobby for me, it is my passion! There’s nothing more exciting than the challenge of organizing a special day that a couple will remember for the rest of their lives. The thrill of turning their dreams and ideas into reality is something that I absolutely love doing. From selecting the perfect venue to choosing the right flowers and decor, every aspect of wedding planning is an adventure that I enjoy taking on. 

Planning a wedding takes a lot of hard work, patience, and attention to detail. But for me, it’s not just about ticking off items on a checklist. It’s about creating an experience that reflects the unique personalities and preferences of the couple. I take pride in being able to understand their vision and help them bring it to life in the most beautiful way possible. One of the things I love most about wedding planning is the opportunity to be creative. From designing custom invitations to selecting the perfect music playlist, there are so many ways to infuse personality and style into every element of a wedding. It’s like being an artist with a blank canvas, except instead of paint, I’m using flowers, fabrics, lighting, and all kinds of other beautiful materials. 

Of course, there are challenges that come with wedding planning as well. Sometimes things don’t go exactly as planned, and there can be unexpected hiccups along the way. But for me, these challenges only make the process more exciting. It’s like solving a puzzle or overcoming an obstacle, and it’s incredibly satisfying when everything comes together in the end. 

My passion for wedding planning runs deep. It allows me to combine my love of creativity, organization, and helping others into one amazing experience. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing a couple’s dream day come to life before their eyes, and I feel privileged to be able to play a role in making that happen.
