Brigitte & Jimmy: Barn at Valhalla

I am so excited to share this wedding with you all! I met Brigitte last fall and we instantly clicked. I loved her vision and her laid back attitude. We knew her day would be interesting, fun, and of course gorgeous. It did not disappoint! Half the wedding was from out of town and they all came to have good time. Brigitte had painstakingly made all her bouquets out of paper and the result was stunning. We loved the mix of cultures and the food was seriously ah-mazing! Rocky Top knocked it out of the park. I could not eat enough of the Korean Short Ribs. It was so yummy! The day was flawless and went so smoothly. A lot in part to my awesome vendor team (listed below). I love when the team is comprised of not only professionals, but friends! We had a blast chatting with AJ and Kyle and watching JD do his thing DJ'ing the night away. Thank you Brigitte and Jimmy for letting us share in your special day! It was perfect!

Our Newest Team Members: Julie

Continuing with our team introductions, we are so excited to introduce Julie! She is such a blessing to our team and we are so excited to have her!

Hello! My name is Julie and I am so excited to be joining the C and D team!  This summer is bringing about a lot of change in my life as I have decided to be a stay-at-home mommy with my two beautiful children. This change has allowed me to really think through what I want my life to look like and how I want to spend my time. I know I will be crazy busy chasing around my kiddos, but I will now have a bit more freedom to pursue some creative endeavors. I am looking forward to using my design background to help brides bring their wedding dreams to life.

Our Newest Team Members: Whitney

Meet our newest team member Whitney Davis! Whitney will be an Event Manager for C and D Events and we are so excited to have her on our team!

I am really excited to be a team member with C and D events. I was reminiscing on where I first started to fall in love with weddings and planning and I realized that it was probably when I went to a family member's wedding around age 7. I remember being completely enthralled with the details. The perfect entrance of the bridal party, the way the napkins were perfectly folded, the constant movement of the coordinator - directing the pictures, moving the bride's dress, etc. While growing up, my grandmother, aunt, and mother were always helping facilitate the weddings in our family and at our church, by default I was right there beside them. Little by little, weddings became my passion! Then one day the light bulb went off, and I realized I should help other people with this passion. During college, I interned at a few wedding venues and caterers then my first job out of college was at a venue here in the Raleigh area. After planning my own wedding, I was eager to jump back into the event planning world. I'm so glad to have found C and D Events and am really looking forwarding to growing and learning from the team.

Katy + Jereme: Spring All Saints Chapel Wedding

Pretty often we fall in love with our clients.  This couple was one of those - you feel like you've known them forever and they become good friends to you.  Katy and Jereme are two of the most down-to-earth people you'll ever meet - so kind and so in love.  I loved getting to plan every detail of their wedding - and of course the best part was seeing them enjoy it!  Katy told me after the wedding that she wanted "to do it all over again!" because she loved it so.  I know without a doubt in my mind that these two will have a beautiful, long-lasting marriage!
