Raquel Shutt is the principal of Wedding Savvy Wedding & Event Consulting, an award winning national wedding and event consulting company.  Wedding Savvy was founded in 2002 and has been featured in many national outlets such as BRIDES Magazine, Style me Pretty, The Knot Magazine and more.  Raquel has also been featured in LATINA magazine and the WeTv's wedding series, "Platinum Weddings". Raquel is also the author of "Social Savvy" appearing in the Capital Style Magazine.

Raquel is also founder and creator of the Wedding Savvy Summit.  She created the summit because she wanted to offer engaged couples a straightforward live event to learn the basics of wedding planning from pros that know.  She has found that most of the stress involved with planning comes from not knowing what information is relevant to each couple and who they should work with.  The Wedding Savvy Summit addresses both of those concerns and sets couples on the right course for a fabulous wedding day.

Raquel resides in Annapolis with her husband and their three sons and travels often to her Charlotte office in North Carolina.  She enjoys her job immensely and can't wait to share that enthusiasm with you.  Check her out on her youtube series!
