About Stellaluna Events

Stellaluna Events was born out of a passion for creating fulfilling experiences. We don't believe weddings are about choosing certain decor just because its trendy or overspending just to impress your guests. Your wedding or event should be about gathering a group of your favorite people together to celebrate.  It's about creating a meaningful memory.

The Stellaluna couple chooses soft seating for their wedding not because it will make great photos, but because it will make their guests comfortable and encourage meaningful conversation. They can't wait for the band to play the perfect ‘get up and dance song’ and doesn't worry over whether the candlesticks are gold versus bronze.

We love couples who throw out tradition.  Let us encourage you to do it differently.

Meet Hannah

I have a love for planning and organizing that has carried on throughout my life. In college I dipped my toe into the wedding industry and knew it was the path for me. I have a passion for bringing all the details of a wedding together and creating the perfect day. I get joy out of being able to provide support to my couples so they can enjoy their day as well as help elevate the guest experience.

When I'm not building timelines and executing weddings, you will find me chasing my toddler around, biking, running, or basically doing anything outdoors and active. I reside in Grand Rapids, MI with my husband and toddler, Lewis, whom I love spending time with.

Meet Shelby

Shelby has always had a love for finding unique ways to be creative and that translated perfectly into the world of weddings. After designing her first wedding she was hooked! She found it very fun learning about each couple and finding creative ways to incorporate who they are into their special day. Fun fact: Shelby's wedding was zero waste! Shelby and her husband try to be as sustainable and environmentally conscious as possible in their day to day. That was a big way they were able to incorporate who they were into their wedding.

In Shelby's free time, she stays busy with toddler twins June and Millie. She loves getting outside, hiking, biking, going up north and traveling around with her husband Jonathan and her girls. When she can find the time, she loves watercolor painting.

"Working with Stellaluna Events was an absolute DREAM. Their whole staff from booking a consultation to the execution of the day was everything I could have hoped for and more. The Stellaluna team was so proactive and communicative that the day went out without a hitch. I felt informed of what was needed from me, by when, what decisions I needed to make, and what the suggestions were. They took my vision and brought it to life. I am forever grateful and HIGHLY recommend them. Happiest day of my life and so grateful Stellaluna helped create that for us."
