  • To future brides and grooms, please do yourself and budget for a wedding planner. I knew that I wanted a wedding planner better yet I needed one for our new year's eve wedding!! Zupenda provides top notch wedding services to help brides and grooms make their wedding day oh so special. Unfortunately we have to postpone our reception until 12/31/2021 and Zupenda graciously blocked that day and will continue to provide her services for us next year. She is very responsive to emails and text. We never felt that we were in the dark with Zupenda. Any question you have big or small, she will get an answer for it. Choosing Zupenda was one of the best decisions we made and we hope that you do too!

    Thanks so much, Takia! There were so many changes with the COVID restrictions I wanted to make sure that I not only stayed on top of everything but also kept you and Harold in the loop. Thank you for your patience and flexibility. I look forward to celebrating with you and helping to provide all the Shining Moments along the way!

  • Where shall I begin? The Owner, Zupenda, is truly a sweetheart. She is professional, knowledgeable and organized. These are the qualities that any bride and groom should seek when researching for event planners. Shining Moments Event Planning is truly an exceptional company. As a bride-to-be, she has been patient and understanding with this pandemic and the constant date changes She took charge of reaching out to my vendors and getting new contracts. I can go on and on about how wonderful Zupenda and her company have been. I highly recommend this company.

  • Zupenda worked tirelessly for months, timely answering emails from my team and other teams to prevent the bride and groom from getting overrun. Weddings are a day they have little experience with and she did a great job communicating and managing everything from flowers, photo, DJ, and more. She was on top of everything there on the day of the wedding. Great work!

    Thanks Dave! Yes, to make sure that couples' weddings run smoothly communication with vendors months before and the day of is key. Our goal is to turn stressful planning into shining moments! So great working with your team.

  • Working with Zupenda Davis-Shine and Shining Moments Event Planning was one of the best decisions I made in planning my wedding. Hiring a day-of-coordinator was on my wish list of items I wanted to have, but wasn't sure there was room in the budget for. I'm so glad that we were able to find room in our budget to add her services. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable; she knew to ask questions I hadn't even thought about. Many of my other vendors commented saying it was extremely easy to work with her. She was very responsive to correspondence, both with myself, and my other vendors. Zupenda also put me in touch with other vendors to complete our day. On the day of, I had no stress and all I had to worry about was marrying my husband. It was truly a pleasure working with Zupenda and Shining Moments Event Planning and I will definitely use their services in the future.

    Thanks so much for your review Yaeisha! It was a pleasure being your Day of Coordinator for you and Howard's Special Day! Making things stressfree for our couples and working well with vendors is our specialty! We had so much fun watching Howard serenade you and your Grandmom boogie on the dance floor during the reception! Thanks again for trusting us with your vision!

  • Where do I start? Zupenda Davis-Shine was a absolute gem. We hired her as our Day of Wedding Coordinator for our destination wedding and she rocked. As a same gender couple there are many small obstacles to overcome. Z was confident, affirming and supportive throughout. Most importantly to me her attention to detail and organization were top notch. She held me accountable and made sure nothing was forgotten. She always made sure I was ok and anything I was worried about she assisted with. Brides you need her on your Team, it will make a stressful experience so much better TRUST ME. I have even hired her for my personal event services after the amazing job she did to get us married.

    Thanks so much for your review Aneesah! It was our pleasure serving as the Day of Coordinator for you and Surera! We pride ourselves at making sure that we bring our couples' vision to reality for their Big Day! We believe that #loveislove and that everyone who wants to get married deserves nothing but respect, support and attention to every detail no matter what. We had a great time watching you say your vows on a rooftop with an amazing view of the ocean in St. Augustine, FL and also your guests dance the night away by the swimming pool during your reception! It's a day/night that we'll never forget!
