They’re not wedding planners, they’re wedding shamans.

Rich and Shelby Satnam are on a mission to break traditional wedding beliefs and practices and provide an unforgettable transitional experience for their clients — all while creating a deep, authentic expression of their love.

You don’t have to give in to societal norms. You get to decide what YOUR marriage looks like!

Tune in to this episode: Making Marriage Yours with Rich and Shelby Satnam

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ Invite people out of joy. Good job on having the courage to make this difficult decision. Imagine: Who’s there? What are you feeling at that moment?

✔️ Advocate for your needs. Set boundaries for rest. Don’t allow resentment to fester. Discuss important things in a pleasing location that you both like. Be willing to show up to figure things out.

✔️ A wedding doesn’t have to be stressful. It can be a nourishing transition. Every couple has their own version of what their ideal wedding should be. Allow space for genuine expression.

✔️ Writing vows isn’t just for people who are getting married. Doing this for yourself is a commitment to self-love. Relationships, marriage, and love can be re-known in an uplifting way.


Opposites attract. And they make magic. We are a creative force that uses joy, inspiration, and authenticity to curate an unforgettable wedding experience. We believe in being connected to each couple we choose to work with so that we can integrate your vision and personality in unique ways.

You are exactly where you need to be. 

Not only have they done the damn thing and eloped in the mountains, but Shelby and Rich have created over 200 wedding experiences (each with their own personal touch) in 7 states and counting. Their goal is to draw upon each couple’s authentic expression to curate a magical experience just for them. 

Rich and Shelby both bring a unique set of skills and past experiences to their passion for authentic weddings. Rich has this incredible ability to build connections through his previous work as a Chaplain and Relationship Coach. Shelby has been a yoga instructor for several years and is able to intuitively bring a joyful and grounding presence to those around her. Together, they are also Somatic Release Breathwork Facilitators and Sound Healing Practitioners who seek to remind people of the transformational power of their own breath.
