Meet Our Team

Shayla Luck – Co-Owner

I’m Shayla Luck, previously Shayla Duncan. From the age of 16, I worked at my parents party rental business, Big Top Rentals. At Big Top, the focus is mostly on larger events such as marathons and car dealerships. I would always get SO excited when a wedding came in and I got to help plan it. There is something about weddings, love, and romance that is so magical to me. This lead me to the life goal of owning a wedding venue that made the couples wedding day as easy and relaxing as possible. After my personal wedding and college graduation got postponed due to Covid, my family decided it was time to turn my dreams into a reality. We all work together and I couldn’t have done this without them.

Hello! My name is Jordan. I was working on my Masters degree in psychology when we decided to open The Oaks. At the time, I wanted to become a high school counselor and never planned on working at The Oaks. After months of helping my father-in-law build everything from the ground up and working the first few weddings with my family, I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be running a wedding venue, but I have never been happier.

Morgan Sellers – Office Manager

Hey there! I’m Morgan! I find nothing more rewarding than seeing a couples dream wedding come to life and am beyond grateful to be a part of the process from start to finish! I genuinely love meeting all who come to share their story and their plans with us. Being of service to our couples and families whenever they need something is incredibly fulfilling! Working at a wedding venue means that I am always surrounded by love and creativity and it brings so much joy into my life. I can’t imagine being anywhere else.

Linda Engstrom – Head Coordinator

The best gift I could ever give my clients is peace of mind. The peace of mind that comes from allowing my couples to be fully present on their wedding day. My joy comes from getting to know my couples and providing them with the amazing service that they deserve at this special time.
My journey into wedding planning started years ago, as I helped my friends and family design, plan, and coordinate their weddings. This has grown into a full-time business for me, and I hold certification in Meeting and Event Planning from Cal State San Marcos. I have been the owner-operator of a wedding planning and coordination business for over 9 years. I would love to get to know you and your family, and be able to help guide you through the details on your special day.

Shayla asked if I would like to be a part of Duncan Lane as I was coordinating her wedding. I’ve been involved since before the first wedding. It’s my privledge and joy to work along side the Duncan/Luck family at the beautiful venue that they’ve created and who are as passionate about their couples as I am.

Victoria Knight – Coordinator

I have worked in this industry for several years now and I love it! I started coordinating micro events and I have developed myself to so much more. I truly have a passion to make all of my couples have one of the best days of their lives. From the planning, to the effort it takes to make an event successful and memorable, I love it all! I’m here to make my couples feel stress free and help them to enjoy their planning process. My goal is to help you plan the ultimate party with spectacular service, delicious food, and beautiful decor. I want nothing more than to take your wedding from great, to unbelievable! I look forward to meeting all of my couples and making their dreams come true!

Dream Makers

At The Oaks at Duncan Lane, we are more than just a dream team, we are family! Our mission is to get to know our couples, understand their vision, and deliver a wedding that our couples and their guests will be talking about for decades while the bridal party gets ready, relaxes, and enjoys their day without having to lift a finger. Our goal is for every client to be “wowed” by our customer service and stunning venue.  We look forward to working with you to make your event unforgettable!
