While I’m on maternity leave with baby Elliot, some of my vendor friends that I’ve had the pleasure of working with will be taking over my blog! Without further ado, let me introduce you to Shay Tibbs of Make Memories Events! I met Shay through the Dayton Tuesdays group. I’ve worked with Shay on several stylized shoots and she has been helping me as my Virtual Assistant the past couple of months as I’ve prepared for Elliot’s arrival. I’m so thankful for her continued help as I adjust to being a momma.
You’re awesome Shay!
You’re awesome Shay!
Hello! I’m Shay, owner of Make Memories Events – event planner, Nikon shooter, designer, stylist and social media lover with a focus not only on weddings and events, but on collaborating with other creatives and small business owners!
From creating beautifully curated weddings to leading a bride through her big day I absolutely love getting to know my bridal clients and how I can help make who they and their spouse are to make even the everyday moments leading up to the wedding, amazing! Those same goals and wishes apply to working with other entrepreneurs – I LOVE working one on one, hosting getaway Shoot & Stays and being involved in as many networking opportunities and collaborations as possible!
Here’s some of the questions I had for Shay-
What do you do?
I am a Wedding & Event Planner, designer & stylist – from day of coordination to full planning, design & concept for brides, parties and corporate events. A little bit of everything I would say, as I absolutely love to work with others on their ideas and dreams, and make it a reality!
How long has this been your job/passion?
I have ALWAYS loved weddings and events! I think many little girls dream and plan their wedding over and over from the time they’re small, and for me this is definitely true, but I was all about the small details and the perfect color scheme – if it was up to me, I’d have a wedding in all the season to get all my ideas out LOL Instead, I get to take a bride or entrepreneurs vision and make it something extra! I have worked in events, catering, and social media for over ten years now, and the wedding industry has my heart! I’m very passionate about the people, trends and unlimited possibilities my position has to offer!
What is your business goal or biggest dream, where do you want to be in the future with your company?
What I love most about my company is getting to do ALL the things! From simple elopements to our out of town getaways, I am someone who loves to include others, uplift them and help them grow! For me, my dream is not only to be a planner, but to keep growing my online community into somewhere others can find likeminded creatives to work with, a space to share and DREAM BIG. I am based here in Ohio, but am SO lucky for the out of town experiences I have gotten to be a part of, and all the people I get to meet along the way! I want to help you create your everyday moments, so please reach out and let’s chat – tell me about your next event through our contact page!
