Sonal J. Shah

Founder and CEO of SJS Events

Personal Life: When she is not planning an event, Sonal enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and her mom in New York City. In her spare time (as little as it may be), she loves to shop at Saks, read wedding magazines for new ideas and inspirations and enjoys Afternoon High Tea at The Plaza Hotel. Her guilty pleasures are watching romantic comedies, watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians (can’t help it, they are so much fun), and searching high and low for fabulous shoes. Her favorite drink is champagne, the perfect celebratory drink to commemorate all that is good and bubbly in life.

Professional Life: Sonal J. Shah started her career in wedding planning 14 years ago in the city that never sleeps, none other than the Big Apple. She has planned over 1,200 weddings and received hundreds of glowing testimonials from her many, many happy clients. She is a perfectionist, dedicated workaholic, and most of all she loves her brides. With her caring personality and a keen eye for detail, she creates luxurious and flawless experiences for all of her couples and families. Sonal and her amazing team are innovators and trendsetters who make wedding planning a stress-free process. Her company strives for a memorable and one-of-a-kind wedding that is truly unforgettable. With a focus on strong vendor relationships, Sonal’s mark on the wedding industry is unlikely to fade. Seven years in the making, her first book, The Complete Guide to Planning the Perfect South Asian Wedding, was published at the end of 2013. Her love and dedication to her clients has made an impact on each of her former and current couples. Her favorite motto is: “It’s all in the details!”

I am very proud of all the weddings we have created since 2004 and look forward to the challenges of creating bigger and better, and even more exceptional weddings to come.
