30 May Why We Love What We Do!

For almost 17 years I have had the privilege of sharing one of the most special days in a couple’s relationship.  We have successfully executed hundreds of weddings and have memories to last a lifetime.  However, we recently experienced a first.  We received a review from a guest at one of our weddings.  Our commitment to each event has always gone beyond our client.  We strive for each guest and vendor to have an enjoyable experience.  How awesome is it that this guest noticed and took the time to share her thoughts on WeddingWire!

I was a guest for my best friend’s daughters wedding on May 21st, 2017 and was able to watch how Shawn and her team created such a stress free wedding day for Erica. They took care of all the little and big details, made sure everything was just perfect and set a tone for the entire day that allowed the bride and her family to enjoy the day without feeling rushed or stressed whatsoever. I would highly recommend Shawn Schindler Events to anyone who wants to enjoy their day and be assured that it will be everything they imagined and more!

Durham, North Carolina

Kristen and Mike were married at the historic battleground, Bennett Place in Durham, North Carolina on a beautiful Saturday evening. This venue created a very peaceful and intimate setting for family and friends to witness the celebration of the couple’s love for one another. The reception at Bay 7, carried on the rustic tone of the wedding with high-end signature food and drinks, scotch tasting, and a night full of dancing under string lights. Shawn Schindler Events with the help of prodigious vendors were able to facilitate every last detail to ensure this event ran smoothly and joyously. This wedding brought together a loving couple that both share a carefree and wanderlust personality. With each table number at the reception, came a different country in which the couple has traveled to together. May their everlasting love bring them many more adventures together!

The Manor at Carriage Farm

Raleigh, North Carolina

Nikki and Josh’s classic southern wedding took place at the rustic, yet elegant Manor at Carriage Farm on what turned out to be a beautiful Saturday afternoon after many calls of rain. Nikki majestically made her grand entrance into the ceremony side saddling her horse, Seven, with a diamond-studded saddle and mane adorned with flowers while her beloved Josh, family, and friends gazed upon her beauty. This bride’s bouquet was sentimentally crafted to contain a memorial rose made of her father’s cowboy boot. Shawn Schindler Events worked closely with local renowned vendors to exude an intimate southern comfort-themed wedding. Nikki and Josh’s wedding was a dream come true.

Lead consultant, Shawn Schindler, states, “It thrills me that after 15 years of helping bride’s celebrate their special day, that we can still experience new and special moments.”

08 Jan A True Southern Bride and Groom

As many of you may know, Shawn Schindler Events has recently introduced our new full feature spread in Southern Bride and Groom which featured Angie Cole and David Padilla’s glamorous urban wedding at The Stockroom at 230.


While you’re flipping through the pages highlighting the Shawn Schindler Events team, make sure to pay attention to our advertisement following the feature on page 190 in Volume 29, Winter/Spring 2016. Colorful floral’s from Expressions of Love and smiling faces dressed in delicate pastels, fill the page for Macky and Daniel Trotter’s wedding at the The Pavilions at the Angus Barn.


The love-filled ceremony took place at Saint Mary’s Chapel at Saint Mary’s School in Raleigh, in a chapel dawned with the couples’ initials on red doors. As guests filled the pews, excitement filled the couple which stayed evident through every picture captured by Ginny Corbett Photography.


We featured Macky and Daniel Trotter as our main advertisement page wedding for the simple elegance, timeless design and spectacular experience we at Shawn Schindler Events shared with the newlyweds and their families alike. Every moment in the planning process was filled with laughter, kindness and overwhelming joy, making each task within our services to them something to remember.


The couple held strong to their country roots with their extravagant reception intertwining a classic Southern rustic atmosphere with a vibrant palette of pinks and greens. It was obvious to us that we had to feature Macky and Daniel within our advertisement to display not only our skills within our career, but to provide readers with our love for the unique twist on classic Southern wedding design. Bringing to life the Trotter’s vision for their ethereal Carolina wedding was not only a gratifying experience but one we at Shawn Schindler Events knew we had to share for all to see.


Macky and Daniel were our very own, True Southern Bride and Groom.

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!
