I am Austin. 

I am Shauna's husband. I started working in the wedding industry when I was a teenager. I pretty much taught her everything she knows. (Kidding, she is way better than I ever way.) I am currently a pastor and work full time running aRay of Remodeling. I do enjoy every chance I get working events with my wife and her team.

Courtney

Data Analyst/

Wedding Planner

Hi, I'm Courtney!

I started off planning events for family and friends, and became a professional wedding coordinator in September 2020. Planning and organizing is truly my happy place! I have known Shauna for over 20 years, and was so excited to be able to work for her when she started her own business. I got married on Halloween in 2016, have two amazing children and two dogs! Most of my days are filled with family, I have a passion for tacos and love to read! I cant wait to help you with your next event!

Meghan

Marketing Specialist/ 

Wedding Planner

Hi, I’m Meghan!  

Wifey, Momma of two, and event planning/decorating enthusiast! My love for both started my junior year of high school when I was part of our prom planning committee. Fun Fact: I also attended Shauna's wedding that year! I’m a “planner” by nature and enjoy seeing those plans come together. I’ve always thought of wedding planning as a dream job!  Like other brides, I was planning my wedding even before my husband and I started dating. My heart is to serve others by helping both brides and grooms have their special day turn out better than they could have ever imagined!

Janise

Wedding Coordinator

Hi, I’m Janise!
Along with assisting Shauna on the weekends, I currently work as a school psychological examiner and a mental health counselor.

I met Shauna in 2017 while she worked in her career in special education.
Due to my large family, I have been attending weddings from a young age, and still fall in love with
weddings to this day. I get so excited to be a part of making couples' day stress free on one of the most memorial days of their lives.

Christopher

Catering Manager/

 Event Coordinator

I am Chris.

I have been assisting Shauna with events since the summer of 2020. I love to serve and help out in anyway. You may see me preparing/serving food, setting up chairs, decorating a table, or holding a bride's tissue. I do whatever needs to be done and love every minute. 

I am also the Director of Operations for aRay of Services. My favorite weddings are when we get to bring both businesses together.
