Beautiful words of thanks from our clients ...


Working with ShalanaWatermanDesigns was a dream come true, a touch of class, a glimpse of heaven. She was always willing to fulfill our every request no matter how big or small, even when changes were made on the wedding day. She delivered the product she promised she would and even more. And the best part is, she always did it with a smile. Her team mates were just as enthusiatic and willing as she was. Choosing ShalanaWatermanDesigns for your wedding is one of the best decisions you will ever make. TRUST ME, you will not regret it!!!

- Dwight and Cherish (Dec 2017)

As a person with a strong will to do everything by myself, in preparation for our wedding, the initial plan was to do it all on our own up to the day and hire a day of coordinator. But life had a different direction that led our paths to cross as we were at out wits end and NEEDED help. After just one meeting, not even solidifying whether we were going with them for our wedding, Shalana and Lenese pulled their resources and basically started working immediately. They found us a possible venue alternative and even scheduled a walk through. They did so within our first meeting with them *clap*. Shalana and Lenese are the dynamic duo that made it all possible. Our major challenge throughout the process was clearly identifying each of their roles as well as communicating the level of involvement we required from them. Being entrepreneurs,  our schedule was hectic and we required everything from them both. However after clarifying, it was pretty much smooth sailing.

Being the planner, Lenese was out front and visible in her  continuous action and skills at getting the job done. However, throughout the process, with Shalana's role as designer, her presence was as expected more subtle, with her initially being in the shadows but the WOW factor revealed on August 26th 2017, our dream wedding day. The team at ShalanaWatermanDesigns definitely exceeded our expectations, going above and beyond, that included customized monogrammed linen napkins and throws for our lounge area. She even outfitted our wait staff with customized monogram #LewisLoveStory aprons.

It was THE event of 2017.

Thank you Shalana and Lenese and by extension your team. Excellent job! Our guests are still raving about it. We would be happy to recommend your services to anyone looking for the best plan and design for their special day.

To say that the team at Shalana Waterman Designs went above and beyond on our wedding day is to put it simply. Without a doubt, using their services was the best decision we made for our wedding day. We wanted a wedding planning company that genuinely cared about our wedding as if it was theirs, especially since 75% of our guests were going to be travelling to Barbados. Aaron and I could not be happier with their professionalism and attention to detail and all aspects of the wedding industry. Shalana and Lenese are true gems, their expertise bar none, their creativity will wow you and their genuine friendliness will put you at ease. We were most grateful for the feedback they offered us on any ideas we had to ensure it fit perfectly with our overall theme, They were never afraid to suggest alternatives or tweaks to take things up an extra notch while keeping us within budget. Our decor and seamless wedding coordination is all thanks to them. Cheers
