Sheila Dodson-Wright

Creative Director | Lead Designer

With over 16 years in the event industry, nine of these as the owner and creative director of Tableau Events, Sheila Dodson-Wright has established herself and company as one of the leading event designers in Michigan and beyond. Having had the pleasure of working with over 200 clients with their event and creative needs, her range of experience has allowed her to design events in many locales. From the backdrop of the aqua blue Caribbean Sea to designing luxury weddings against the perfectly painted Northern Michigan sunset sky, Sheila’s versatility is the cornerstone of her signature style. Having collaborated with some of the most talented vendors and venues in the event industry to produce incredible experiences, Tableau Events designs have been featured on ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC The TODAY Show, TLC and numerous national and international blogs and publications including Bride’s Magazine, The Knot, People Magazine, Style Me Pretty and Elizabeth Anne Designs.

Sheila’s refined design aesthetic stems from her love of the natural beauty of the Lake Michigan shoreline to the cultivated vibes of some of her most favorite metropolitan cities.  She draws energy from her surroundings, including her in the daily adventures as a mother, wife and business owner. Truly humbled and grounded by the legacy of family, heritage, tradition and faith in the power of true love, we at Tableau Events are thrilled to bring this unique blend of style, perspective and knowledge to each our client’s events.
