08 Jan Showing Our Style in Southern Bride and Groom

 

With every seasonal change, Shawn Schindler Events loves to showcase one of our favorite events from the prior wedding season, advertising our services and talents as a full feature spread in Southern Bride and Groom.

 

In Volume 29 for Winter/Spring 2016, Shawn Schindler Events displayed a glamorous and lavish wedding from July 2015. Among the hundreds of pages displaying other Triangle wedding vendors, Shawn Schindler Events showcased our usual advertisement, in conjunction to displaying our full feature 2-page spread at The Stockroom at 230‘s for Angie Cole and David Padilla’s wedding.

 

In the article, Angie states “Shawn Schindler and her team were amazing… From our initial consultation, through the planning process, and the day of our wedding, Shawn was always one step ahead.” In addition, she added that “There wasn’t a detail that went unnoticed. I owe the beautiful evening to her expertise and love for her career.”

 

Angie and David emulated true love through every step and detail in the wedding process, which made it easy for the Shawn Schindler Events team to showcase our love for what we do!

 

Pick up your copy of Southern Bride and Groom and cozy up, away from the January chill and check out Shawn Schindler Events at The Stockroom (pg. 188 to 189) and our great new advertisement right after (pg. 190.) Until you can slip on your wool socks and grab your copy, feel free to take a look through the gallery we included with Angie and David’s pictures from Michael Moss Photography sent to us from Donna at Southern Bride and Groom from the spread!

07 Jan Making Moves in Midtown Magazine

Midtown Magazine

 

Summertime in the South means sunshine and romance. On the evening of July 17th, Angie Cole and David Padilla shared that romance at The Stockroom at 230 in Downtown Raleigh on Fayetteville Street.

 

Shawn Schindler Events had the pleasure of sharing in Angie and Davids wedding memories, bringing together the couples glamorous dreams into a blissful celebration. The fairy tale unfolded from start to finish as we at Shawn Schindler Events, sought to fulfill every delicate detail. Angie dawned a fitted, deep V front and back, white lace gown and a smile spread across her face, reflecting in her eyes. Her elegant and captivating demeanor blended impeccably with the gold and blush surroundings of the urban venue.

 

Angie was an endearing, headstrong bride with a big heart. In Raleigh, Angie owns and operates her own real estate company, A Cole Realty exemplifying the same passion in her career and business, as she had her wedding. Her husband, David works as a regional sales manager for Boston Scientific with a welcoming personality that perfectly balances with his wife. The couple’s romance began blossoming from their first date and as witnessed at their wedding, has continued to grow into a beautiful garden of love.

 

This power-couple was recently featured in Midtown Magazine for their weddings’ spectacle of glamour and intimacy. Our pleasure of working with Angie and David was reflected in their article with kind words regarding our shared joy in bringing to life their weddings’ vision. Angie “acknowledges that hiring a wedding planner was a necessity. “Shawn Schindler Events was absolutely amazing,” she says. “I remember the week prior to our wedding feeling as if I should be stressing, but instead feeling only peaceful and calm.”

 

Every wedding brings something unique to us at Shawn Schindler Events. It could be the decor, the entertainment or even the riddance of traditional wedding “standards.” With Angie and David, their love for one another, their family, friends and the vendors who made the evening possible, is what made this wedding an overwhelming joy to be a part of.

 

Take a look at the moves Shawn Schindler Events is making around Raleigh and in Midtown Magazine to read all the intricate details and see what one of our clients has had to say about our team!

02 Nov Shawn Schindler…..Celebrating 15 Years!!

057Shawn Shindler Team _J

Shawn Schindler, Owner and Lead Consultant of Shawn Schindler Events is celebrating 15 years in the event industry and we feel the best way to celebrate such a momentous milestone, is to give back!

 

Shawn shares, “I have been so blessed by my career!  I deeply value the relationships with the event professionals I have the privilege of working with each week and our amazing staff, past and present, that have contributed greatly to our success.   Most importantly, my life has been so enriched by the hundreds of couples and families I have worked with during my 15 years.  Giving back seems small compared to how full my life is as a professional event planner.”

 

During our anniversary month of November, for every client that books our Spectacular event package, Shawn Schindler Events will donate $150 to one of our team selected charities. In addition to this, for any client who books our Timeless package, we will donate $50.

 
Our team thought long and hard about how we should celebrate the accomplishments and success of Shawn Schindler Events. After realizing how passionate we are about our community and all of those within it that help make every event we do so special, we realized giving back that very same community is the best way to celebrate.

 
We have been so blessed to be able to have been a part of so many individuals’ lives and to be a part of so many more as the years continue. It truly is a huge accomplishment for the Shawn Schindler Events team to have made it 15 years in the hands with growing success, of Shawn Schindler.

 
Each one of us came together to think of our own local nonprofits to which we would charitably contribute and our choices are as follows. Every single one of these amazing organizations have provided our community with resources, help and so much more. Follow the links to learn more about each of our selections and all that they have provided for our Triangle Area and beyond.
