I am Shanelle, the proud owner of True Splendor Events. I am so happy you have dropped by our page and equally excited for this chance for you to get to know me a little better! I have always been a planner at heart. I am that friend who loves order, organization and all things chic! It’s never lost on me just how blessed I am to be able to do what I love for a living. My passion for events has even taken me across the globe and back!
My path in the world of events has been an amazing ride! After graduating from Clark Atlanta University I moved back to San Jose, California where I worked at the San Jose Convention Center and Cultural Facilities, gaining valuable venue management experience. I touched so many different events as they loaded in and out each week. Each week bringing something more exciting than the last. After my time at the Convention Center, I moved to the Big Apple! I can still hear Empire State of Mind blasting from speakers in Time Square “These streets will make you feel brand new. Big lights will inspire you. Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New York” Yes Alicia Keys, Yes! What a time! While there I had the honor of working several Fashion week shows, planned product launch parties, weddings and a myriad of other special events. It truly was an amazing time! After a few years of living in the big city (and tiny apartment) I moved back to the best coast…I mean west coast 🙂 and landed in sunny Los Angeles.
In Los Angeles, True Splendor Events was born. It was created out of a desire to continue planning amazing events and providing practical event solutions for event planning needs. Since being back in my home state, I have been busier than ever and enjoying leading my clients through seamless event planning and flawless logistical execution.
When I am not running around with a clipboard with my “event shoes” on, I am spending time with my college sweetheart – turned fiance, enjoying my favorite lineup up of reality shows or a good book (because, balance) or serving my community with my pretty sorority sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.
I say all that to say, I love events and enjoy creating beautiful memories for my clients and hope we can work together really soon!
