- Albriana Shante
Hey, I'm Albriana Shante Youyoute, but my friends call me "Bree." I am the owner and lead designer of Albriana Shante Events based out of Tampa, fl. My motto is, "the event is in the details." As a Florida native and my love for travel, I have been exposed to various international cultures. Visiting many counties allows me to incorporate the experience of their cultural, food, and architectural details into each of our designs. At Albriana Shante Events, our goal is to create an original design that will leave your guest in awe. We incorporate your venue's architectural design to create the ideal ambiance in your event.
My passion for event planning began in high school when creating centerpieces for my late great-grandmothers 89th birthday party. It continued in college, where I planned events at the University of South Florida. As a member of the University Lecture Experience, I had the honor to meet the late great Maya Angelou. When I told her my name, she replied, "you have a beautiful name." Of course, I told everyone. Listening to her speak that evening created such a significant impact on my life and is why today her famous quote, "people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" to heart.
Alongside my Masters's degree in Business Management, I offer white-glove treatment, honesty, and integrity. When I am not planning events, I love spending time with my highly supportive Husband, Beautiful Daughter, traveling, and interior design. I value service and love. A portion of our annual sales is donated to bring relief to the women and children in Haiti.
"From the moment we hired Albriana as we knew she would go above and beyond to ensure our day was as smooth as possible. From vendor recommendations to easing my nerves about our timeline, she made me feel like I had a fairy godmother the whole way through! She has a gift for making you feel at ease and like everything will be okay and that's truly all you could ask for in a wedding planner."
