- shay + peter

You were a lifesaver during the planning process. I found it amazing how I could describe something to you and you could bring it to life. There is absolutely no way the wedding would have happened without you. It was a truly memorable weekend for all of us that will continue to be a highlight of our lives.

"if it wasn't for you, i'd still be planning my wedding."



- Adam Hightower-Moreno

I hired SwaLaRue Events to coordinate the prom for the high school where I teach. After the students narrowed down their theme, Anshwa ran with it and came back with some amazing ideas. The students were in awe and so were the faculty and administrators! I believe one of the most memorable highlights (there were many) of the evening for the students was seeing their names on the dance floor. The kids didn't want to leave! I heard compliments for weeks after prom. Thank you Anshwa and your team at SwaLaRue Events!




- margaree + cleveland 

The love she has for her craft is unmatched. Words can’t truly express how much she means to us! A gift from God is what Anshwa is!

“We would have been completely lost without her.”



- Briscoe Manor Venue Coordinator

I just wanted to tell you again how much I enjoyed working with you and your team. I appreciate the class and grace you exude, regardless of the situation.

“You are a professional to the nth degree
(as were your assistants).”



- valarie + adrian

I was especially having difficulty with my venue coordinator and you really rescued everything and put us both at ease. My entire bridal party and parents raved about you…we loved that we just mentioned an issue and you did whatever needed to be done to take care of it. I had no idea all the little details that needed to be coordinated and you just took care of it all.

“I am certain that YOU are the reason everything went as smoothly as it did.”



- sarah + drew

Our wedding day went off without a hitch (or at least if something did go wrong I never knew anything went wrong, and still don’t!). I highly suggest Anshwa. She will make your wedding day seamless and amazing.

“Anshwa listened to my wants and vision for our wedding day and completely made my dreams come true.”
