Owner, Principal Event Planner
Shayna has years of experience coordinating weddings, Mitzvahs, theme parties, fundraisers and more. She got her first job, Thanksgiving 1991, when her mother asked her to help decorate the table. She made turkey place cards using Paintshop, created centerpieces with leaves from the backyard and feathers from a school project (she basically invented up-cycling), and folded paper napkins into fans tied with cinnamon dental floss. It was a success, except for spelling almost everyone’s name wrong on the place cards. Shayna will never forget the feeling of creating a beautiful event for loved ones to share. Since that life-defining event her spelling has somewhat improved and her dream of helping people throw amazing parties has come true.
Shayna delivers top notch event planning to her super awesome clients with a sense of humor, an eye for style, and a love of creating memories in her home state of Colorado. Shayna graduated from CU Boulder and worked for 5 years in non-profit event management while building Cherry Bomb Events. Cherry Bomb's inaugural wedding was in 2010.
She loves black nail polish, a great floral print, paleo cook books, iMovie projects, HGTV, thrift stores, fresh avocados, and in her wallet you will find a punch card to over 20 restaurants and coffee shops; Shayna lives for that 10th free drink. Shayna lives in Louisville, CO with her husband, two kiddos and two cats.
