Gina-Jokilehto-Schigel-Shi-Shi-Events

Gina | Owner + Creative Director

Gina’s love for design runs deep. She grew up among the swatch books and color palettes of her father’s commercial interior design plans and learned from a young age “the devil is in the details”. As Owner + Creative Director, this love of design, understanding of color, and pursuit of the exquisite give rise to both the broad concepts and intricate facets that create her clients’ weddings. Before launching Shi Shi, Gina worked in the experiential marketing and music industries where the planning of VIP parties, product launch campaigns, and concerts were her specialty. Crafting extraordinary event experiences has always been her lifeblood. Her approach to planning is organic and tactile while remaining highly organized and perfection driven. She’s renowned for her exuberant personality, fondness for risk-taking, and divergent thinking and beloved for the trusting environment she creates for planning and straightforward decision making during your process. She knows you want the world for your wedding, she does too.
