MARGUERITE MCEVOY SHIPMAN
Bringing a diverse background in hospitality, including food and beverage, Event Manager at a premier venue, and Senior Event Supervisor at a luxury hotel, Marguerite understands that every client and event is unique.
Over the years, I have built strong relationships with local vendors and venues and have an
unparalleled ability to match clients with the vendors and venues that best complement their style. In addition to my many years of expertise in different event settings, I bring positivity, flexibility, and an elevated sense of style to each event I coordinate.
My attention to detail and ability to understand and take direction from clients sets me apart.
I’m the event planner who takes clients skiing and hiking because I want to spend time with them and they want to spend time with me. My fun, vibrant disposition has also led to long-lasting relationships with event colleagues and a well-rounded list of event professionals who are the best in their respective areas of expertise.
In addition to ensuring every event is beautifully executed, my favorite part of any occasion is
witnessing each client’s satisfaction when their vision comes to fruition. I became an event planner because I love making sure that the envisioned event comes to life.
I understand the importance of logistics and details, and prioritize responding and
following up in a timely manner.
While I know that the planning process can be challenging, as I’ve had experience with rain,
altitude, a pandemic, electrical issues, family politics, and venues with no cell service (just to
name a few), I am always ready for and can handle anything thrown my way. I anticipate the
possibility of last-minute issues and changes and am prepared for them.
Originally from Atlanta, I love Colorado and have been a Vail Valley resident since 2011.
I live in Edwards with my husband Sammy and our son Wyatt. When I’m not event planning,
I can be found enjoying nature and all that Colorado (and the world) has to offer. Additionally, I enjoy
cooking, traveling and spending time with my family which also includes
one dog and three cats.
