Cheryl Bailey has worked in the events industry for a number of years and before opening Yellow Umbrella Events, owned a successful catering company where she received a number of awards. It was hard to keep her away from the event planning side of the business so she decided to take the leap and follow her love of event planning on a full time basis. She first launched Yellow Umbrella Events and later added Yellow Umbrella Travel, and hasn’t looked back since!
When she’s not planning a wedding or corporate event, Cheryl travels the world (with Shea) as speakers to the wedding and event industry. They share their knowledge of owning and operating successful wedding businesses and teach others how they can do it too.

He grew up in Tennessee (Go Vols!), joined the Army National Guard his senior year of High School, and graduated from Maryville College with a degree in Biology. After college, Shea spent the next year living in Venezuela while working with a local professor at the Universidad De El Tigre.
After returning home, he entered the “Corporate World” where he gained experience in sales and operations while traveling extensively around the country. Several years later, Shea decided it was time to take that experience and follow his dream of becoming an entrepreneur.
