Meet: Rebecca Shenkman

I am a New Jersey Native who loves planning, organizing and romance! As Roald Dahl once said, “If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love and above all become passionate about it.”

I bring that passion into every aspect of my business. I have such joyful memories of my own wedding day, it was really so much fun! I want that same joy for my clients, a feeling that sticks with them for the rest of their lives. The culmination of months of planning, a perfectly choreographed event and the start of a new chapter in a couples love story, it’s really an amazing thing to be a part of!

I am a new mom to twins and one fluffy Australian Shepherd. I could drink a Rye Manhattan any time of year and I eat an unhealthy amount of ice cream. I can drool over pretty paper and vintage and antique jewelry for hours!

What brought you to the wedding industry?

I’ve always been a planner but it was planning my own wedding that gave me the push to take a leap, leave the cubicle world behind and join this amazing industry! It might seem like quite a change going from investment banking to event planning, but there are actually lots of commonalities! I have loved every minute and have truly enjoyed working with my clients, meeting so many amazing people and having the chance to explore new spots amongst NYC and the surrounding areas as I work with clients and vendors in planning their events.

What is your favorite moment at a wedding?

The ceremony. Between the walk down the aisle and the vows – I always tear up!

What is the best part about your job?

Working with amazing and diverse clients – each event is always something different, new, beautiful and fun!

Where do you draw inspiration from when preparing for each wedding?

I always look to my clients first! How or where they met, their favorite trip, an inside joke they share, favorite foods, their favorite artist, or the place where they had their first kiss! It can all provide so much inspiration to craft an event that is personal and truly reflects their love story.

Share something that is unique to you and/or your business.

I love taking all the wonderful ideas a client brings me and helping them realize there is a way to tie them all together to create a cohesive event that is uniquely theirs!
