How it All Started

Hello friends! This all started back in 2003 with a desk & chair in a small closet. Before my wife Nicole & I founded ShipOur.Wedding®, we ran a local event company called Encore Event Group in Detroit. Motivated by a passion to transform events, we worked hard to earn the trust of every client. Before we knew it, couples were referring our entertainment & decorating services to family & friends across our state.

An Unexpected Moment

We outgrew that closet & relocated to a warehouse in Rockwood. We managed complex setups, scheduled logistics for 5,000+ events & trained hundreds of team members. Little did we know that January 8th, 2015 would change everything. We suffered a devastating electrical fire. The flames damaged furniture, electronics & equipment.

The fire tested our patience & dedication. It took a lot of work and we were able to relocate to a larger building in Southfield. In the end, we came out stronger, more confident & 110% determined to help people achieve their dream events.

What We Believe

Positive Event Impact is Our Purpose

There is truth in every idea.
As life evolves so will events.
People need authentic solutions.
We take action to embrace change.
With understanding, we focus on you.

Over time industry costs rose. We felt torn that high labor prices prevented couples from planning an event they could afford. Clients told us those do-it-yourself solutions we’re perceived to have fewer quality-driven options. We knew deep down something had to be done.

  • when clients control labor, they spend less money

  • when vendors control labor they are more profitable

As committed professionals with decades of experience, we took inspiration from these clients. At that moment ShipOur.Wedding® was born. Our company’s purpose is to empower clients & vendors. We give a voice to those who have had less-than-desirable solutions in the event planning process.
