We Plan & Design Weddings
That Capture the Imagination

Hello, all! My name is Megan “MJ” Sheckles, a native of Bardstown, KY and the proud owner of MJ Weddings & Events.  I have both family and friend roots across the state of Kentucky where I will service my clientele.  Although, I reside in central Kentucky, I am more than willing to travel where business needs take me.

My passion and love for planning and coordinating events started at a young age being raised in a family that thoroughly enjoys hosting great events regardless of the occasion.  In my teens, I assisted with coordinating a variety of events while working for my mother and father’s local restaurant and nightclub.

What Our Clients Say


My daughter’s wedding was “last minute” by most standards – we didn’t begin much of the planning until about 5 months prior to the ceremony. After speaking with numerous wedding coordinators, we selected MJ Weddings and Events and were so pleased with the results! Megan Sheckles did an excellent job helping my daughter achieve her “perfect day”, and still managed to keep our budget in mind (my husband and I paid for the wedding). MJ Weddings and Events engaged quality vendors who provided excellent service for a large outdoor wedding and reception on a hot August afternoon. The floral arrangements, décor, catering, etc. came together for a beautiful evening at My Old Kentucky Home State Park. My daughter and son-in-law were so happy with how everything turned out, and our family and friends enjoyed a wonderful celebration thanks to the MJ Weddings and Events team!


Megan made our day run so smoothly, I'm not sure how we could have done without her! I had hesitated to spend money on a wedding coordinator, but I would do it again in a second! She was incredibly professional, well-organized, and kind. More than that, she was fun to just talk to in the midst of wedding planning craziness!



It is hard to put into words how we feel about Megan. By the time the wedding was over she felt like one of our family. From the first day, she handled everything for us. Both the bride and her mother (me) never had to worry about a thing. She made sure all the vendors did their jobs and even negotiated their fees. She worked until well after the wedding and even helped take gifts and left overs back to our house in her SUV. The wedding went perfect with her in charge. She was born to do this work! WE LOVE YOU MEGAN!! ??
Brides to be....Megan needs to be the first person you contact in planning your wedding. SHE IS INCREDIBLE!!
Tina Lichtefeld (mother of the bride - Alyssa)


I had the pleasure of working with MJ Weddings and Events for my special day! She was very easy to work with and made my day stress-free. She was with me every step of the way. She even helped me pick out my bridesmaid dresses. She was very attentive to my needs and made sure I had everything that I asked for... you can't go wrong with MJ Weddings and Events! I have a baby shower coming up and will definitely be contacting her because I know she'll make it beautiful. I'm so excited!!
