Shay Brown Events Management
Creative Visionary ~ Owner
There’s only one way to say this. (The polite, Southern way. Obviously.) I can design my BE-hind off ya’ll! It’s true. Give me your boring dining halls, convention centers, your elegant (but sterile) ballrooms, music halls, warehouses and your lackluster backyards. I’ll transform every one of them into a magical space that feels exactly how you wanted but Better, even that what you imagined.
Great design is two-fold. You must be able to see the grand vision of an empty space, while simultaneously zooming way in, to the tiniest detail. Then there’s the flowers. My OTHER favorite thing to do! I’ve designed cozy, intimate ceremonies and elaborate, 800-guest blowouts. I’ve styled magazine shoots, hotel openings, and coordinated more weddings than I can count, ya’ll. I have been at this for 18 years...
When I design something, it becomes intensely personal to me. From the moment, we have our first meeting to the finished product. When I take on a project, I pour every bit of my love, talent, and commitment into it and the result shows in your finished product. Am I intense? Yes. Do I settle for anything less than perfection? Nope. Would YOU settle for anything less when it comes to your wedding? Didn’t think so. Therefore, I do what I love… you become family and it is a partnership for both our team and you as a client. This is why, I ask so many questions… ha
Who am I when I am not designing rooms and planning events? Well here is a little about my life, when I am not planning yours ~ you will find me here… with my #furbabies, Eastwood, Noble, Max, Onyx, and Addy. My lil’ niece Beatrice and the newest addition Oscar. My Family, they are the most important part of my life. Then there is Wine. Brunch. Travel – wish list Greece in 2019. Rivers & Oceans. Gourmet Chef Tours it is true I am one of those foodie types....
Here is a little about me and I look forward to hearing more about you!
Shay Brown Events Manager & Wedding Planner
Marketing Manager & Wedding Associate
Proud Story-Teller & Event Aficionado
Hi friends! My name is Lucy Murphy. I was born and raised in the mountains of WNC and feel lucky to call the beautifully intriguing city of Asheville my home. My passion for marketing was sparked at Appalachian State in 2006 and my enthusiasm for events wasn't far behind, creating what I like to think of as a "dynamic duo" of talents.
Ask anyone who has spoken with me for more than a few seconds and you'll quickly learn that I have a flair for story-telling and a love of creating connections. I believe that these traits along with meticulous attention to detail and a can-do attitude create a unique ability to provide the support, creative solutions and top-notch customer service that creates wonderful, one-of-a-kind events and content. I feel blessed to able to share my diverse skillset alongside such an amazing, dynamic team, all focused on making your special day everything it can - and should - be.
Asheville Masonic Temple Manager & Wedding Associate
Hi y’all! My name is Taylor Lankford and I am the Office Manager of the Asheville Masonic Temple and a Wedding Associate for Shay Brown Events. I am originally from Greensboro, NC but graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism in May of 2016 and decided I couldn’t leave these beautiful mountains.
I have always loved planning and organizing things even at a very young age. I would plan tea parties to school dances to even my own wedding (when I was 5). In figuring out what I wanted to pursue in college, I reached back to the childhood memories and things I excelled at and it led me into event management.
