hey there!

My name is Shauna.  This is my husband, Austin,

we got married in 2013. After high school, I went on to earn my Bachelors in Elementary and Special Education in 2015, and then a Masters in Administration in 2017.  I have always loved getting the family together to celebrate all of our milestones.  Once my family and friends started getting engaged, I started managing and planning weddings as a hobby.  I became a mom in 2017 when Austin and I took in three amazing children from foster care, and officially adopted them in 2018.  I stepped away from my career in special education in 2019 to run a wedding venue, which gave me the flexibility to go on mission trips and spend more time with my kiddos.  I love managing and planning weddings and all sorts of events.  I decided to start my own business, aRay of Events, in 2021 to continue serving my clients and create stress free memories!

Since then, I have became a Wedding MBA Elite Level Certified Wedding Planner and have grown a team of amazing wedding professionals that help me bring our couples visions to life!


I love to travel and plan destination weddings & elopements.


We manage 70+ events a year.

I have  worked in all positions related to a wedding. 

The name aRay of Events comes from my maiden name, Ray.

I specialize in planning a variety of events so it’s the perfect play on words.

The logo contains my initials. S. Y. R. J. Can you find all four?
