Meet Shanelle

FOUNDERShanelle Williams

True Splendor Events  is led by SHANELLE WILLIAMS, an accomplished event planner with over six years of experience in managing all event types from weddings to media and technology conferences. Shanelle brings with her a background in both private and corporate events. Having worked on both the venue side and the and the agency side of the industry Shanelle has a keen eye for detail. She prides herself on her effective relationship management.

Upcoming Events

As a busy couple who both deploy regularly, having Shanelle plan our wedding was a life saver. She is awesome!! She was great at interpreting my vision and explaining it to the various vendors and when we had to unexpectedly cancel the wedding due to an unforeseen deployment, she was great at working with everyone to make sure there were issues with cancellations. Overall Shanelle made everything just easy, especially since the majority of our planning was done while I was in Afghanistan. Photo credit: Bleu House Photography

I hired Shanelle to work on my product launch during NEW YORK FASHION WEEK in 2015. From the very beginning Shanelle showed an amazing commitment to the event and worked tirelessly to ensure that the event was a success. At the time I was still in California though the event was set to be held in New York City and we only had about a month to bring it all together, Shanelle worked with both my team members in California and New York to bring all the necessary detail together. I keep her on my shortlist of event planners to use in the future. I cannot wait for the next project we collaborate on together.

Shanelle brings to the table her wealth of industry knowledge, expertise and professionalism. When I met Shanelle, she promised me one thing; peace of mind, and on the day, she duly delivered. She thoroughly understands the intricacies of wedding planning, is patient and handles crisis with ease, all true skills of a great wedding planner. My husband and I were able to have the time of our lives without worry. We look back at our wedding day with joy because Shanelle was there. Photo credit: Bleu House Photography
