Shayla Hawkins

MBA | Principle Planner
Purpose-Driven, Strategic, + Witty AF

The girl who just decided to go for it—Shayla is a true visionary. Always a big dreamer but even more so a doer, Shayla followed her heart, took a leap of faith, left corporate, and established SHE in 2009. SHE stormed the Pittsburgh market with distinctive wedding + event designs coupled with flawless planning and coordination. Shayla’s love language was always details and her attention to details quickly stood out by elevating design trends and producing fresh concepts. Planning a wedding or event is a huge learning curve so educating, setting clear expectations, and maintaining a standard of integrity + excellence every single time, makes a lasting impact with her client + vendor relationships. 


Shayla finds great joy + purpose in making dreams come true and creating the best memories ever for her clients. Celebrating life’s beautiful occasions with meaningful details, aesthetics, + transformations is what she’s all about. Throughout the planning process, clients love the fun vibes with Shayla, her shoot-straight with a down-to-earth + heartfelt delivery, her ability to inspire clients to do it their way (i.e break the “rules”) and the peace of mind and assurance that their special celebration (and investment) is in expert hands. By taking on a limited amount of projects, Shayla gives careful attention + service with flawless execution.

Sequoyah Davis
