"Planning" to Make Your Dreams Come True!
Shekinah Wedding and Event Planning Services, LLC is a mobile business that will travel to a public place of your choice for an appointment. We are based in Oceanside, California. Our commitment to render services to plan special days or events is beyond merit!
The vision to coordinate and plan all occasion events was first presented to Me (Cyntoria) in 1993. After years of educational preparation by obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management, Master of Science degree in Organizational Leadership, Project Management Certificate, Mediator Certificate, Wedding and Event Planning Certificates, and a Human Resource Management Certificate; the vision was ready to be fulfilled! Shekinah Wedding and Event Planning Services officially launched in October 2011 giving ALL Glory, Honor, and Praise to God and Profound Thanks and Appreciation to My Very Loving and Supportive Family… my husband and our four adult children, their spouses, and my grandchildren!
My favorite inspirational saying “Grow where you are planted” is certainly not spoken without validation in my life. Because of the many opportunities granted to me in planning special events for my church community such as: breakfast fellowships, luncheons, banquets, annual celebration services, conferences, and fundraiser events, as well as planning baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties, weddings, and company holiday luncheons over the past 20 years, I am certainly rooted in my passion for event planning!
In memory of my loving and caring grandparents who raised me… “Thank You for instilling in me that the word CAN’T is not an option when there is work to be done”. Rest in Peace
