Data Analyst/


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!


Kaitlin Ray

Event Supervisor/


Hello, I’m Kaitlin Ray!

I am a cousin of Shauna Ray Jackson. You could say a passion for event coordinating and planning runs in the family. I am a single dog mom of a sweet mini Australian shepherd, G Ray. Her and I love traveling and being outdoors. When I’m not working for aRay of Events, I am working on my MBA degree specializing in Human Resources.



Marketing Specialist/ 


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! 



Executive Assistant/ Coordinator

Hey, I'm Carrie!

I am a single mom of two boys.

Along with aRay of Events, I work as a product analyst. 

I like hanging out with my boys, being outdoors, animals, working out. I enjoy traveling and look forward to working destination weddings.

I met Shauna in 2020. We have been serving others together ever since.  

I love coming along side Shauna and her team to make couples' day special and fun!



Executive Assistant/ 


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.


Catering Manager/


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.
