Shelby was an essential part of our wedding day from the moment we booked her! She worked so very hard during our special day organizing bridal party members, setting up and tearing down ALL our decorations, helping us follow our timeline of events, organizing all our wedding vendors, and many more things. She met me at our venue the Thursday before the wedding to do a walk through and go over all decorations and set up to ensure a smooth day the day of the event. She orchestrated and organized our rehearsal on Friday and was present for over 12 hours on Saturday transforming our venue into the most beautiful scene for a wedding! Our wedding would not have been possible without Shelby-not to mention she is so kind, sweet, and friendly and got along well with all of the bridal party, family, and friends present at our event. If you're like me, you were on the fence about hiring a day of coordinator and thought "I can probably do most of this between myself, my family, and friends" but trust me when I say there was absolutely NO WAY I could have done all that she did and still had a carefree, enjoyable, perfect wedding day as every bride should. Find the room in your budget because she was worth every penny! Absolutely loved my experience with Shelby and definitely recommend Whitecat Weddings & Events if you are looking for a professional, experienced wedding/event coordinator!

When I reached out to Shelby, it was inquiring about her boxwood wall and the rental prices behind that. At this point in my planning, I thought I would be a DIY-Bride. I looked over the website she gave me and was immediately impressed with their look/vibe/prices. I hadn't considered a wedding planner, but their description of services sold me on the usefulness of coordinator and we set a meeting. She also let me in on their newest adventure in floral design, so we planned to discuss all options. From our first meeting, I knew that Shelby was going to be an intricate part of my day. She allowed me to text her randomly about small details and got back to me as soon as she was able. As a bride who was anxious about all things, she totally eased all my questions/concerns. Her process of business was smooth and easily managed, not to mention totally personable. On the day of, she and her assistant were superheroes. Seriously, I had no idea the intricacy of their position and could not have imagined my day without them. I walked into a DREAM wedding and I am so grateful for their work. I didn't worry about a single thing.. In fact, I noticed that my guestbook was signed with a silver marker and looks great (bourbon barrel top). I say noticed because I did not provide anything to sign it with and never realized until I unpacked it. They ran the show seamlessly and with such ease. I never felt rushed, pressured, or uneasy the entire day and Shelby was never far away to help. Shelby, thank you so much for your help and guidance throughout this process. My day would have been a totally different day without you! I'm so glad I chose to work with you and I'm grateful for you/your business. From the floral arrangements, to the decor, and the organization overall.. I can't speak highly enough of my experience! You go, girl!

If you’re having a wedding in the Kentucky area, no need to look any further for a wedding planner or florist - book White Cat Weddings. For both! It is one of the best decisions you can make. Shelby can transform your wedding vision into a real dream that’s somehow within your budget. She melded her wedding planning skills with her floral skills and thought of a creative way to repurpose our table garland as our ceremony arch!! She’s brilliant and it turned out absolutely lovely! This is a service not offered by other florists but is unique to Shelby if she is your wedding planner as she’s there the day of and can make this happen. She’s got a true talent and creates such beautiful bouquets that are reflective of the bride’s vision. She’s also got a wide network and knew every vendor we booked which made the entire process a lot easier. Because of her established relationships with these vendors she’s able to reach them more quickly or already knows how they work and what to expect. I initially only booked Shelby for day of coordination but eventually booked her for everything because she just makes it that much easier. This ease carries through to the day of coordination as well. The wedding went so much smoother than I could have imagined - many of my friends warned me things will undoubtedly go wrong. Even with the small things, Shelby immediately addressed it and we were able to completely enjoy every second of our wedding. To sum it up, she is the perfect combination of a kind southern gal and boss lady. An absolute pleasure to work with.

I instantly connected with Shelby based on her Friends reference of often being referred to as the real life Monica Geller and she didn't disappoint (90's babies Shelby is your girl). Shelby was helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process and was always an email, phone call, text away. Shelby was able to recommend and connect me to fantastic vendors. The vendors she recommended were timely, professional, and easy to work with. When I had a last minute emergency with a vendor I personally selected Shelby jumped right in to fix the issue and prevented me from having to stress about the situation. She was able to completely fulfill my wedding vision. My wedding ceremony and reception are still being raved about weeks later! I chose to use White Cat Weddings & Events as my florist and was completely blown away by all the florals for my wedding. The bouquets, boutonnieres, ceremony florals, and reception centerpieces were truly stunning. My bridal bouquet really felt one of a kind. Shelby really pays attention to the details with florals. To all the brides considering White Cat Weddings & Events my advice is to personally consult with them on which of their services best fit your needs or for you to evaluate a head of time how DYI you really think you will be for your wedding. Besides using White Cat Weddings and Events for my florist I thought the wedding coordination package would fit my needs because I knew I wanted to be a really hands on bride. Also, my wedding budget was a factor. From experience, let me just say, wedding planning is incredibly stressful and time consuming even for the most DYI or relaxed bride. Consider splurging and using the wedding design or wedding planning package. I don't think you'll regret it.

Shelby is wonderful to work with, she was always available for my questions and prompt with answers. Throughout the entire planning process, Shelby was attentive, organized and creative. On our wedding day, I had absolutely nothing to stress about and could just enjoy the day because Shelby had taken care of every little detail. Even with an unexpected power outage at the reception, Shelby was quick to communicate with us and resolve the issue. Shelby also did my florals which turned out beautifully. I would highly recommend her for wedding planning and florals!

I am so thankful that my daughter chose Shelby of White Cat Weddings as her wedding planner! She also chose her to do all of the florals and decor as well. Shelby guided us all along the way and made the planning much more fun and less stressful. She was especially helpful to me as the mother of the bride! I had the idea to surprise my daughter and her husband with a horse drawn carriage ride to the reception. I had tried unsuccessfully to secure one and finally asked Shelby to help. She worked tirelessly to find one as all were reserved by the time I informed her of my idea. The horse drawn carriage was absolutely beautiful and a wonderful surprise for my daughter and new husband as well as for all the guests! The bridal and bridal party bouquets Shelby designed were gorgeous! Wedding guests are still commenting on them! I was able to truly enjoy every minute of the wedding day because of Shelby taking care of all the details. Her planning and assistance were invaluable!

Absolutely loved working with White Cat Wedding Team. As the bride, I was very lost and overwhelmed with wedding details, but Shelby talked me through each part, connected with my vendors, and made sure everything ran smoothly. Caitlyn was on site for the big day and made sure absolutely every little stress was melted away. both were so wonderful and I cannot express my appreciation for them more!

Shelby is the absolute BEST. She is a dream to work with - I felt that I could trust her with anything wedding-related and not ever have to worry about it. Once she knew my vision, I pretty much knew that her creative vision would make mine infinitely better and SHE DID! Our flowers were exactly what we wanted and she made our day so perfect and stress free. I can not recommend using White Cat Weddings more. Shelby is the wedding planning and floral wonder woman!
