(Matt & Lee B of Normandy Park) Excellent food, excellent service, excellent price. We were very happy to work with Sheena for our parents 70th wedding anniversary. Being their 70th anniversary, my mom wasn't as able to assist with all the details as she might've for her 50th or 60th anniversary. Sheena stepped in and took control of everything. She provided a very ingenious layout display for the food worked to late and very hard to both set up and clean up. I was also particularly impressed with how helpful she was for informing people about potential food allergies. We have many food allergies in our family so this was a very wonderful touch. Sheena kept her schedule perfectly and is a very hard worker. Mom said tonight that if she still working in 10 years she'll have her for her 80th anniversary. Ha ha!
(From parents of the bride, Wes & Cathie S. of Kent:) "Sheena, I honestly don’t think there is any way I can adequately describe what you did for Liz's wedding. To say you saved the day is insufficient, as is that we heard comment after comment after comment about how beautiful everything was, or even that the whole thing would not have even ever happened without your genius and inspiration and incredibly hard work.
You covered every angle conceivable, from the large (walls, halls, entryways, access) to the smallest details - table decorations, place settings, seating, even the cups. It was a mind-boggling process to watch, not only in its inception but in its execution. You are truly a one-woman wonder and we just cannot say enough about what you did and how you did it. There is no doubt you are in the right business. You have a passion for it that is endlessly and tirelessly reflected in the amazing work you do. THANK YOU for making the day and for saving the day!"
(From parents of the bride, Wes & Cathie S. of Kent):
This is the second wedding we had Sheena do for us, and again, just as before, we were so thankful for the huge sense of relief we enjoyed before, during and after the wedding and reception, due to her incredible oversight of literally every detail. Everything was perfect, nothing was missed, and yes, everything looked gorgeous. She is an absolute genius at coming up with the most beautiful decorations and designs, and can create them in ways that are economical and surprisingly simple (hence, the genius label). To say we were continually blown away by her ideas and her work would be an understatement.
Her skill and organization were lifesavers for us, as she made sure that no detail was overlooked or forgotten. Better still, her passion for what she does is unmistakable. She loves creating beauty and loves helping make sure that this special day is just that – the perfect wedding day. We really can’t say enough about what she does and about how well she does it. She really is the BEST.
(From the groom, Nathaniel G. of Renton):
“Sheena was an absolute genius at helping us plan and coordinate our wedding. She was able to work with us as we planned the wedding long distance, and pulled off a gorgeous evening. She thought of everything and her attention to detail was extremely evident in the decor and event. We cannot thank you enough for your involvement in a day we will truly remember forever."
From Mother of the Bride, Carrie U of Kent:
I would highly recommend Sheena McKinney to do anything and everything involved in planning and executing a wedding! We hired her to help coordinate our daughter's wedding just over a week ago and could not have been more pleased. She has extensive experience in this arena and that was apparent from the beginning of our planning. She was always available for questions, processing and taking the time to come to the venue itself. She met with both myself as mother of the bride as well as our daughter the bride on several occasions. She located and purchased items used in the ceremony as well as offering us everything she had in her collection of decorations. She purchased and arranged our flowers for both the decorations and for the wedding party. They were beautiful as were all the decorations she did on that magical day. I especially appreciated her expertise in what to expect and possible pitfalls. Her coordination of the rehearsal and wedding itself was flawless. We are so glad we hired Sheena as our wedding coordinator and would wholeheartedly recommend her to one and all.
From the bride, Alyssa S of Federal Way:
I can attest that Sheena McKinney is the BIGGEST help! My husband and I just got married in a rather complicated sort of wedding this last summer with many logistic and decorating needs. I was incredibly relieved to have an outside voice with planning skills and a ton of decorations ready to go. I sincerely appreciated Sheena's light-handed guidance during the planning process. She met with us multiple times in order to help us plan, see our special day a little more clearly, and help us determine the path to get there. Her planning skills and organization were vital for making the big day happen.
Sheena was very flexible in taking many phone calls as well as soothing a panicked bride! My husband and I spent many days bickering back and forth, trying to figure out what kind of wedding we wanted, and Sheena was able to guide us towards a happy medium. We ended up having an outdoor ceremony on one day and an indoor banquet on the next.
I knew that Sheena had a ton of crafts and decorations and I asked her to incorporate those in the banquet hall that we rented. I also relied on Sheena greatly to help out with the paperwork, regarding insurance, and permits, so that we were covered at each location. She also recommended a catering company which was fantastic and made sure that everyone was well taken care of during the reception.
I cannot stress how important it was to us to have a wedding planner. It was fabulous to have someone be the lead and to tell all the helpers where to go and how to make things look. I am so pleased with how our special weekend turned out.
