While Shelley Armstrong has 30-plus years of experience in special events and fundraising, it wasn’t until last year that she bit the bullet and started her own event planning business – Shellz Bellz. “During the pandemic, I was reminded that life is too short,” she shares. “I decided it was time to realize my childhood dream of helping celebrate all of life’s special moments in memorable ways.”

In 2022, weddings encompass much more than the “I dos,” and Shellz Bellz can provide hands-on coordination and planning for events big and small, from the bridesmaid luncheon and bachelorette party to the rehearsal dinner and reception. Just a few of Armstrong’s services include a planning timeline; vendor recommendations and coordination; and guest services such as transportation, accommodations, and activity recommendations. Armstrong also coordinates destination weddings.
“I love a special event, but my real passion is the behind-the-scenes work – bringing the moving parts together to create the magic of the event,” says Armstrong. She and her team at Shellz Bellz work hard to create a stress-free experience for couples looking forward to their big day. “I want my clients to enjoy their event and leave the puppetry to my team,” she adds.
Above all else, Armstrong’s clients are her top priority. “Shellz Bellz is all about making your vision a reality,” she explains. “Everything I do is focused on delivering customer delight and excellent service to my clients. I earn my clients’ trust and want to be the person they turn to for each life experience we celebrate!”
