Shelli Armstrong is not only a professional, she takes her events personally. Her passion for wedding planning allowed my son, Steven, and his bride, Theresa, to have the wedding of their dreams. The peace of mind that came with the planning and being able to enjoy the wedding day was priceless! I will forever be grateful for her guidance, follow through in everything she does, and her heartfelt friendship to make it a memorable day for our family. I am also grateful for her determination to provide the best service possible by having a highly qualified and professional staff along with having an excellent relationship with the best vendors in the area.

Shelli and crew provided us with a phenomenal wedding experience. She took ALL the pain out of planning the event and made it fun for us! She invested the time to get to know us and understand our vision for a non traditional wedding day. She showed me options that I never would have thought of myself and used common sense and practical items to create an amazing evening. We had compliments from guests all night long.
Shelli is a sweetheart and will go above and beyond to make your day fantastic!
Thanks a million

Absolutely fabulous. Shelli and her team truly do handle every detail; from the invitations to the DJ to the wine. Shelli will save you countless hours searching for vendors on the internet and at bridal shows. She knows who will get the job done right and she coordinates and oversees them all. We were able to enjoy our wedding rather than stress over it.

Shelli has a wonderful support team who help with every detail. Her assistant, Sunny, was my personal assistant on my wedding day. She did all the details my friends couldn't do; fix me lunch, bring me water, gave reassuring pep talks, adjust my dress....after a vineyard photo session, she even washed my feet!

I couldn't recommend Shelli enough. She is professional and knows how to get the job done right. You will get the wedding of your dreams and won't have to stress over it!

I brought on Shelli and her team (Anette worked on my event with Shelli) three weeks prior to the event date to take the role of 'Day of Coordinator'. We had our first face to face meeting five days prior to my wedding event at Copper River Country Club of 72 guests. I had FedEx-ed my smaller wedding props from NYC, everything arrived on time with Shelli and Anette wasting no time taking inventory of 'what goes where with what'.

Being a now naturalized New Yorker I am impressed to the level of professionalism and flexibility Shelli and her team has. The likes of her I scarcely see in the state of California. This devoted working mom did not let any of the many parts of my special day fall to the floor. Where there was my step-daughter passing out at the outdoor wedding ceremony, there was Shelli and Anette quickly helping with cold water and getting her promptly into the AC. There were so many small things that I thought were nailed down tight that did not turn out as planned the day of. Not to worry, Shelli and her team made something better out of a not-so-perfect situation.

I really appreciate the promptness in the AM Shelli had through the time working with her. My emails were answered quickly, phone calls when necessary and flexibility to fit me in between clients. Some people are rigid with their personal time, I felt that I was held efficiently and always with a 'yes' mentality. You can bet I am going to go out of my way to put on another event in the Central Valley just to have the pleasure of making my family smile and seeing an event extremely well pulled together yet again. Thank you Anette and Shelli, I couldn't have done it without you!

My wedding was the most magical event I have been to and when people hand me positive feedback, I tell them I could not have done it without the help of these two fabulous women and their staff! I had a large wedding and have no experience helping friends or family planning events so they were absolutely amazing! They not only helped me to have the wedding I couldn't have even dreamed of. It was above and beyond, they kept me sane throughtout the whole thing which was such a blessing not only to me, but to my now husband! If you have a dream wedding, let them help you make it a reality!

Mary and Shelli are amazing! When they came on I had already planned my entire wedding except for the nitty gritty details and that's where they took charge! They did an excellent, over-the-top job at handling all the details and making sure the vendors were on schedule, on track and I was getting what I paid for. I was so appreciative to have them on my wedding day and the weeks leading up to it and also they made a great beverage station that was perfectly styled and refreshing. They are professional, poised and make you feel confident that they will handle everything. I wished I could've worked with them longer. I highly recommend them!! Thanks Mary and Shelli and the Velvet Society Team!!

These remarkable women created a weekend my husband and I will never forget. It's been over a week since our wedding and our guests can't stop talking about how much fun they had and how beautiful our event was! Trust me when I say that hiring these wedding planners is the best investment you will make to ensure that your wedding experience is flawless and unforgettable.

Mary and Shelli were there for us every step of the way, and went the extra mile on several occasions (negotiating our catering package, scheduling our food tasting, organizing our rehearsal, ordering tables/chairs/linens for our brunch the day after the wedding, etc.). They both have years of experience in this industry and have great relationships with the best vendors in town. And they truly listen to your requests and ideas. In our very first meeting, I mentioned how much I loved candles. Well as my Dad walked me down the aisle, I was almost burst into tears at how beautiful the ceremony was because they had candles EVERYWHERE!

If I had the chance to do it over again, I wouldn't change a thing. The peace of mind that you'll have on the day of your wedding knowing that everything is taken care of is priceless. I can truly say that I enjoyed every single moment of that day without ANY stress.

THANK YOU Velvet Society. Joseph and I are forever grateful for everything you did to make our wedding so wonderful!

Why are there only 5 stars?!?!? I would give them a million if I could.

These ladies motto must be to go above and beyond... cause that is what they did. They rocked my wedding.... took my ideas, made them a reality with my budget. I had my first look with my husband and teared up.... but when i walked into the venue that day.... I balled like a baby. They really understand vision.

These two ladies (Shelli and Mary) have many many years of experience in this industry... but have just in the past couple of years come together to join forces to be "the Velvet Society". They are REAL professionals and understand the ins and outs of event planning. I used them as my full service wedding planners (means they do practically everything.... all i do is show up the day of!) and they are worth every penny. They made the "planning" year so enjoyable it was laughable when other brides would say how stressful planning a wedding is. I had the A team on my side and I just coasted to my wedding day. My hair lady even called me "Bride-Chilla" cause i was so relaxed (which is NOT my personality! Im usually high anxiety!)

From the day i met them they told me they would let me know what i needed to do, and when. And they did. They never let me down.

And when I say they are full service... they really are. My mom was freaking out because she couldn't find a dress. Well, Shelli to the rescue!! Shelli took my mom shopping, helped her pick out the cutest dress and everyone was happy. NOW that is above and beyond!!!!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE..... do yourself a big favor and hire these ladies. They are worth every penny and will save you money and a huge headache in the long run.

Top reasons I love The Velvet Society:

1. They understand your Vision (!!!!!!!)

2. Their taste is impeccable (i can't even count how many people asked me who helped with my wedding... they all said it was hands down the most magical event they have ever been to..... AND I AGREE!!)

3. They are nice as can be, very personable (i love them!)

4. They are prompt in responses.... even if they are very busy, they will respond that they will get back to you in X amount of days. I really appreciated that!!

5. They can do small budget weddings (and make them look like $100,000 weddings)

6. They have the hook ups with the best vendors for each client (everyone is different). They really know whose personality (say in a photographer) will mesh well with the bride and vision.

7. They run a tight ship. There were a few people who drank to much at my wedding and were making a scene (seriously one almost passed out face down!).... well I never knew about it! They calmly took them aside, got them water and a cab and diffused what could have been a CRAZY scene. Think of them as like your secret service at your wedding.... they are always scanning the crowd for potential problems and taking care of them before they even happen!

8. I felt like I was their only bride for the year (even though I knew I wasn't) They really made me feel special!!!

OK: If you are still reading this review and you are not convinced, just meet with them! I think they give a free consult. the best move i made was hiring them. I am thanking God each day that they crossed my path!

I know there are a lot of "full service" wedding planners out there.... and I have talked to my friends who have used them in the past.... and to be honest some of the "Big Named" ones I have gotten some really BAD feedback on. They may do a nice event, but ignore what the bride wants.

about 4 years ago, one of my best friends had a "big named" full service wedding planner and we spent 3 days prior to her wedding doing gift bags, painting table numbers, and assembling favors. I asked her why didn't you hire a wedding planner.....she said "funny, I have one.... she is supposed to be full service and I have rarely talk to her." That would NEVER happen with the Velvet Society. If i didn't have a text or an email from mary or shelli at least 7 times a week I'd be shocked!! And that is probably a low estimation!!!


I am trying to think of anything negative to say, but to be honest, there is not one bad thing about these ladies. They did a GREAT job and I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!!!!


Ok: what are you waiting for..... call them. You can thank me later!

OK: If you are still reading this review and you are not convinced, just meet with them! I think they give a free consult. the best move i made was hiring them. I am thanking God each day that they crossed my path!

I know there are a lot of "full service" wedding planners out there.... and I have talked to my friends who have used them in the past.... and to be honest some of the "Big Named" ones I have gotten some really BAD feedback on. They may do a nice event, but ignore what the bride wants.

about 4 years ago, one of my best friends had a "big named" full service wedding planner and we spent 3 days prior to her wedding doing gift bags, painting table numbers, and assembling favors. I asked her why didn't you hire a wedding planner.....she said "funny, I have one.... she is supposed to be full service and I have rarely talk to her." That would NEVER happen with the Velvet Society. If i didn't have a text or an email from mary or shelli at least 7 times a week I'd be shocked!! And that is probably a low estimation!!!


I am trying to think of anything negative to say, but to be honest, there is not one bad thing about these ladies. They did a GREAT job and I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!!!!


Ok: what are you waiting for..... call them. You can thank me later! Read less

Working with Shelli was an awesome experience. She truly allowed me and my family to have peace of mind on the big day. Shelli was able to take the few ideas I had and turn a boring banquet room into an entirely different space - it was unbelievable and perfect. I had seen Shelli's work several times before I got married and had complete confidence in her. She coordinated my friend's wedding and later her baby shower - each event had something special or unique that made it stand out. Definitely top-notch work.

Wow, what can I say about these girls? They are fantastic.....everything came out perfectly, just like they said it would. I have gotten nothing but great feedback from all of my guests!

We live out of town, so getting a wedding planner was the only sane thing to do. Turns out it was the best thing I could have done! The suggestions these girls give--listen to them, they know what they are talking about! They come up with these ideas that are out of this world I never would have thought of. Use the Velvet Society and your wedding will not be cookie cutter. It will be fantastic!
