Who We Are

The collective was founded by Rachel Conroy ( Kinship & Company ) and Allison Usavage (photographer) in 2017 to create an inclusive and joyous wedding community in the Finger Lakes region. After 4+ years of cultivating this community and bringing together countless celebrations, Rachel and Allison have turned over the reins to Shawn Hull of Happiest Days Designs. 

Shawn is committed to honoring the mission of Sweet Bough Wedding Collective in supporting couples planning weddings of all makes, shapes, and sizes in the Finger Lakes region, above and beyond her own clientele.

Shawn Hull – Wedding Planner and Artist

Shawn Hull is the lead planner/designer at Happiest Days Designs. Shawn’s work as planner was born through her experiences in theater directing and art. She thrives in bringing together all the elements of a wedding  celebration to tell your story! Each couple is unique and so is their story, your wedding is a celebration of your particular love. Shawn’s work has been featured with the NY Times, Grey Likes Weddings, and Emmaline Bride. 


Our terms of Engagement

(We couldn’t resist the pun!) We abide by these principles, and all of our vendors have agreed that these statements reflect their practices and values as well.

We are on your side. You should never feel like we’re on the opposing team. We strive to compassionately listen to every couple that we work with.

We happily work on weddings for LGBTQIA couples, straight couples, couples of all races, ethnicities and religious or non-religious backgrounds. We love love!

We support couples with any budget. We will remain supportive, non-judgemental and will abstain from budget-shaming while we work with you to build your own best day.

A wedding is a celebration of you and your beloved. First and foremost, that’s what we are all here for!
