Meet Team Stella

Shaya Sherwood

Lead Floral Designer

I was a late “bloomer”, and didn’t get into floral design until I saw an ad in the local newspaper for a “floral designer, no experience needed; we will train”.  That ad changed my life and my career path forever. 

Not long after, I was dared to enter a bridal bouquet in the Michigan Floral Association’s contest. I took the dare and won first place. That boost of confidence was all I needed to keep moving forward and to know that flowers were going to be in my life for a very long time.

I’ve now been designing for more than 10 years, and have served hundreds of clients.

While I design for all kinds of special occasions and events, wedding flowers are my sweet spot.  I know what couples are looking for (sometimes before they do) by staying on top of interesting floral trends and ideas, and getting to know my clients really well.

I love people.  I’m a huge believer in great customer service, and giving that little bit extra always makes for a happy client.

I also love the water, the color red and my sarcastic husband of 20 years. We have 2 amazing teenage sons, who keep me in the know of all things baseball and soccer.

Stella Event Design would love to be a part of your amazing day.
