"Sharpe Pursuits delivered exceptional service and support in planning our wedding. We greatly appreciated the stress free atmosphere that Shayla continuously exuded throughout the entire wedding process. She made herself accessible to all of our needs no matter what she was doing. Shayla took on the task of making our day unforgettable and the fairy tale that we had always imagined it to be.
We were thankful for her honest advice and budget conscious mentality that kept us from going into debt in planning our wedding. Desmond did a great job for the audio during our wedding ceremony, as well as keeping a fun filled atmosphere during our reception with his disc jockey services. We had the most fun on the dance floor, as we grooved to his great selection of music choices.
We would definitely recommend the talented services of this husband and wife duo to anyone that is looking for excellent customer service and planning skills for their wedding day."

"Sharpe Pursuits Inc. is an outstanding event planning company. My husband and I were thoroughly impressed with the professionalism of Shayla and Desmond. Shayla was there to assist me, the bride, every step of the way. The week prior to the big day, Shayla took care of all the last minute chaos that inevitably occurs leading up to the day of a wedding. On the day of the wedding, the on-site management service provided was spectacular. I could of not asked for a more experienced and caring event planner. Her attention to detail is remarkable and the thoughtfulness that she showed was heartfelt. Desmond, a music genius, prepared a music play list that far exceeded our expectations. The music appealed to guests of all ages and everyone danced the night away. We will always cherish our wedding day, remembering Sharpe Pursuits who made our dream wedding worry free and a magical event."

Shayla & Desmond worked magic at our wedding. I used them for tent decor & they turned our tent into the greatest thing I had ever seen. I wanted a wedding that people would remember & talk about in years to come, and they did just that! I had a "firefighter" themed wedding & I was amazed at the design they came up with! They made something "dirty" become so vintage & elegant.

I had pre-wedding day event planning as well as the DJ-Audio package from Sharpe Pursuits. I cannot say how much they have helped me in my journey to have a perfect day. First of all I met Desmond at a Bridal show then after I met Shayla, we clicked instantly. She not only helped me find my dress but my cake person and my photographer. Without Shayla I would have been in a dress that I did not love. She turned my dress fitting day from the worst day ever to the best day ever. Not only did I get all of my bridesmaids dresses as well as my dress and both my grandmother and mothers dresses from the same lady that Shayla led me to. So if you are in need of a planner I would really stress you not only start early but book Sharpe Pursuits.She attended all important times with me and even booked them. Such as my dress fitting my engagements session, my bridal session, my cake tastings, etc. The reception was a blast thanks to Desmond. Not only do they give you a list of songs you want to hear but they also let you pick the genre as well as special songs for your day. I was busy with moving so I did not have time to put together every song that I wanted to hear so I stuck with a general statement and he followed it perfectly. I keep hearing from my guests how he kept the party going and how organized it was by him introducing everyone before we came in ( and getting everyone's name right). Not only did he introduce everything he made sure I was comfortable with the song if he took a request. Lastly I could not have had my wedding day go without any problems without the help of Sharpe Pursuits!

"Words can not express how grateful we are for your constant guidance, support and words of encouragement throughout the wedding planning process. Initially I did not think I needed a wedding planner, I figured I could save money and do it all on my own. With the encouragement of my husband, I met with Shayla and after the first 10 minutes I knew I needed her by my side to ensure that the process went smoothly and did not cause me a great deal of stress. Every vendor you recommended from the florist, hair stylist, to the photographer and DJ exceeded my expectations. I took comfort in knowing that Shayla was working behind the scenes meeting with vendors, selecting music, and tending to all the details. Shayla and Desmond are an amazing team and their professionalism, creativity, and passion is demonstrated thru their work. September 6, 2008 was a day filled with many special memories and we are glad that both of you played a special part it in. My husband will agree, hiring a wedding planner like Shayla was a great investment and the best gift you can give to a future bride."

Sharpe Pursuits, Inc. is a wonderful company to work with! I used them for Day-of Coordinator and all of my decor. While my bridesmaids and I were getting our hair and make-up done, Shayla was directing all of my vendors, and transforming an empty room into my dream wedding. Shayla assured me I had nothing to worry about, and she was right! She took care of everything on the day of my wedding, and the entire day was flawless. I am so glad that I chose Sharpe Pursuits, Inc. for my wedding day needs. I have absolutely no regrets, and you won't either if you use Sharpe Pursuits, Inc.

"Our decision to go with SP3 for our wedding day music and on-site coordination services was one of the best decisions we made! Desmond, Shayla, and the rest of the crew exceeded ALL of our expectations. They are the kindest, most caring and trustworthy people (and we met A LOT of vendors in the wedding planning process!) who are not out for themselves - Their goal is to make your event the best! Our wedding went so wonderfully thanks to all of their help. Knowing that all the little details and problems were in the hands of Shayla and Desmond was a huge weight off of our shoulders, and we were actually able to relax weeks before the wedding all the way up to the big day. Desmond played every special song we requested, and knew exactly what songs and genres would make us happy. The music definitely made the party!
SP3 is a package deal – they’re a great group of people and they love what they do. You will not find many other companies who will treat you the way SP3 treats their clients. Thank you for everything Shayla, Desmond, and all of the rest – our wedding would not have been the same without you guys there!"

"Jason and I along with our family would like to thank SP3 for a job well done!! My wedding day was FLAWLESS. From the time that we actually started planning the wedding to even days after my wedding day, SP3 was right there every step of the way. I literally had a stress free wedding day and it was all thanks to Shayla, Desmond and the rest of the SP3 crew!! I remember my mother stating that she was just waiting on something to happen, and to her surprise, everything went smooth just like Shayla promised it would be. It’s now a month after my wedding day, and I am still getting compliments on how well organized and well planned everything was. My co-worker stated that she had never been to a wedding where everything was just perfect, until she had come to mine. I did not have to lift a finger the day of my wedding, even down to the gifts that were neatly stacked in my car at the end of the reception. As far as the music goes, Desmond rocked it out!! We had a great time and the music was wonderful!! My husband rarely dances, but that night, he couldn’t sit down. Shayla and her staff were very professional and very caring at the same time, and our decision to hire them proved to be one that we never, ever regretted. Thank you so much for being there and for making every moment of our wedding day stress free. We were really proud to have such friendly people assist us in our big day. Your company did a wonderful job and we appreciated everything and are very grateful as well. You guys are the best!!!"

"We cannot express in words our satisfaction with the services provided by Shayla and her staff. Because of the detailed planning and intimate involvement of Shayla and her staff with every detail leading up to our wedding, our special day was beautiful, enjoyable, and about as stress free as you would want it to be. Before hiring Shayla, our hesitation with using a wedding planner was our belief that our vision of our wedding day would be lost and that our involvement in decision making would be limited. Well Shayla not only made our vision of our wedding day come true, but she enhanced it and was able to offer insight and ideas through her experience that we would not have thought of ourselves. In addition, because we were planning a wedding in a city outside of the one where we both resided, she helped eliminate some of the travel back and forth leading up to our wedding day because she was able to take care of a lot of our loose ends. Throughout the entire planning process, Shayla and her staff provided us with a truly professional experience that catered to our desires and budget. We recommend Shayla and her staff to any couple looking to make their wedding planning less stressful and wedding day magical."
