  • Kellie and Shawna were amazing to work with. Super professional, on top of everything, and just overall a joy to work with. They have so much experience and were able to guide us throughout the whole wedding planning process through the day of. Kellie was absolutely fantastic to have as a planner / day-of coordinator. On the day of, she took care of everything--even when our DJ had to leave the wedding due to a family emergency!! She was amazing to have on our team. And Shawna is incredibly talented. Her floral design was unbelievable! She was able to stretch our floral budget so much, our wedding looked like such a regal event. Highly would recommend them to any bride looking for great service for an amazing price.

  • These ladies bring calm, warmth, charm, professionalism, organization, attention to detail and sheer beauty to everything they touch! As the wedding officiant at a recent event, I observed how the ladies of 2 Sisters operated and executed the wedding to perfection. I especially loved how Kellie gave tender attention to the elderly grandparents in attendance. She made sure they were escorted to the ceremony and the reception, and not neglected. She took "grand-dad" on her own arm to assist him up the walk. That was kind and thoughtful, above and beyond service. I highly recommend them! ❤ Pastor Crystal

  • 5 stars is an understatement to rank Shawna and her team. My very 1st meeting with her I knew she would be outstanding. We had our venue picked out and I described how I wanted things to look and flow. Shawna gave me her input and took my vision and created it...and more. When I walked into our venue I was so taken back. It was beautiful!!!! It was classy, clean, warm and inviting. She is amazing. I loved working with her. Even when my OCD kicked in 4-5 days before the wedding and I emailed her numerous times, she was quick to get back to me and never made me feel like I was being a pest. I can’t say enough great things about 2 Sisters Events. Thank you Shawna and team for being amazing!!!!!!

  • Shawna Carpenter and her team at 2 Sisters Events are Incredibly Amazing!!! When I started my wedding research, I knew it would it would be hectic to plan my own wedding so I went looking for Wedding Planners online. I'm a researcher by nature so when I looked on Wedding Wire and found 2 Sisters Events, I was immediately impressed by all of the wonderful reviews online. I made a consultation appointment and met with Shawna. I knew then that I had found the right team! There aren't enough words to describe them. Shawna, Christine and Kelly were amazing, attentive, friendly...and true Geniuses! They took our vision and made it a reality. The wedding day was out of this world and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. Shawna definitely understood my Type A personality and always calmed my nerves at the exact moment when it was needed. They truly made us feel at ease and so blessed to have had them there! Any bride that chooses Shawna and her team at 2 Sisters Events will not regret... Read more

  • Shawna and her staff made my daughters wedding reception absolutely perfect. They exceeded our expectations. 2 Sisters Events put together the silk bridesmaids bouquets and my daughter's brides bouquet. The hallway leading into the reception dining room was adorned with beautiful canvas photographs of the bride and groom along with candles and flower arrangements. The cake table had layers of whimsical linens and a custom made 3 tiered cake/cupcake stand with ribbon and rhinestones. The sweetheart table also had the beautiful layered table linens with a "one of a kind" garden feel flower arrangement. We had 25 tables at the reception and Shawna's expert floral designers arranged the most spectacular fresh flowers arrangements I have ever seen. The guests said they felt as if they were living in a fairy tale. The entire experience was a dream come true for our entire family. Thank you Shawna!!

  • Shawna and her group of artists are spectacular! I had seen her work before and new it was amazing but I was even more impressed by how she was able to accommodate my daughters wedding wishes and create a a fairytale wedding setting at the Marriott Marco Island Florida. I can honestly say 2 Sisters is one of the best vendors in the business. She made this a stress and worry free event . I highly recommend 2 Sisters Events from Lakeland, Fl to anyone with a special event coming up!

  • The coordinator was the worst experience of the entire wedding. She wasn’t really listening to what the requests and needs were of pretty much the entire event. There were times that my maid of honor was taking phone calls because the other vendors could not reach her. She was absent for a lot of the times she should have been there. We had an issue with outlets, and almost didn’t music. This of course is a huge problem for a wedding reception. The coordinator didn’t seem like this was a problem and didn’t try to help. My wedding party stepped in and made her help, this was unexceptable! For the entire reception she was off in the corner with somebody that was either hanging out or she was training. They were on their phone and definitely enjoyed the food, drink, and cake of my wedding. I was extremely disappointed and wished I had used a different vendor.

    When problems arise during any wedding, our coordinators and directors are trained to navigate through any issue and make the best decision to troubleshoot. Bok Tower is a beautiful destination location and I'm sure this bride was unaware of the vast size of the property. At times it may have felt we were distant as we were confirming details at both ceremony and reception locations, which were quite a distant from each other and where the bride and her girls were getting ready. When a client decides not to hire a professional DJ, and decides to have a friend handle the reception music, issues may arise as did that evening. The problem was not an outlet issue with Bok Tower, the friend in charge of the music neglected to bring all necessary equipment to provide the music the bride wanted played during the reception. When the problem arose, our director sent her assistant to purchase the equipment which we paid for, to assure the reception continued and guests enjoyed dancing the rest of the evening. I'm sure, to the bride, it was very embarrassing that there was no background music playing during dinner, however unfortunate and out of our control. Our directors keep all vendor information and day of timelines on their phones so as not to worry about keeping up with a folder or clipboards. Everything is kept in one place and the information at their fingertips. All clients under our contract are responsible to provide their wedding vendors a boxed vendor meal or allow the vendors to go through a buffet line after all guests have eaten. They then go back stage to eat their meal and do not sit at a guest table. We strive to do our best for every bride, and unfortunately there were things that happened during this wedding that we were unable to control and did our best to rectify. We wish nothing but the best for Sandra. Shawna Carpenter Owner of 2 Sisters Events & Design

  • Shawna, Christine, and the rest of the 2 Sisters team made our wedding a breeze and we can't thank them enough. They really know how to pull an event together and allow you to enjoy the day worry free. Our wedding day went very smoothly and on schedule which I could not have done without them. All of the flowers, centerpieces, etc. were stunning as well. They were very helpful throughout the planning process, answering all of my little questions and concerns. They also had great suggestions since they've done so many weddings and we were so pleased with our day overall. Not to mention, we got to leave and they made sure everything was packed up and cleaned thoroughly so we had nothing to worry about. There were a few very tiny things that didn't quite match my expectations or vision, but certainly did not overshadow the day or my feelings towards how great this team was for us.

  • As the parent of the bride and the host of the wedding and reception, I wish I had booked the event planner for the entire day of the wedding, from 9:00 am - 10:00 pm. I also wish I had prepared a "clean up" plan and timeline detailing responsibilities for the caterer, florist, rental company, etc. 2 Sisters was very helpful with the ceremony logistics, keeping us calm and happy. Thank you!

    One of the very first things we communicate with our clients is "Don't be afraid to tell us what you think". We take pride in being able to give our brides and their families during one of the biggest days of their lives everything they need. Well we have heard you sweet client and we are introducing a new package for those who want us to go beyond a "day of directing" though want to plan their own event. We are introducing an Executive Package that focuses on Coordinating in detail, the days leading up to the wedding. Although we offer hourly options beyond our Regal Package as well as a Full Service Platinum Planning Package, we feel at 2 Sisters, the importance of being the eyes and ears of the family and the bride herself during the week of the wedding. When tents are being assembled, we will be there, when lighting companies are setting up, we will be there, when dishes are being set, we will roll up our sleeves and assist and we will be on site as the first tent stake is going in to the last of the chairs going back to the warehouse. We are excited for the challenge to continue growing as a successful company and take to heart how to perfect our part in the event business. To an exciting 2017 and Beyond! Shawna, Christine, and the 2 Sisters Team
