Carly Marie Events was founded in 2017 by Carly Marie herself, with all the experience and expertise she has gleaned from over a decade of working in the North Carolina wedding and event industry. In fact, Carly loves planning, creating and organizing events so much that she graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Event Planning! Carly Marie Events is based out of Greensboro NC, but plans wedding, corporate events and private parties all over the triad, with services ranging from weekend coordination, event design, and full-service event planning.

Stress Free Wedding Weekend

While ‘day of’ wedding coordination works for some, at CME they believe that the best thing to do is to dedicate the entire weekend to your wedding! That way, they can ensure that your best laid plans fall into place as they should, and that your big day goes off without a hitch. For ‘Weekend Coordination’ the process really starts 3 month before your wedding, with a detailed planning meeting to put together your wedding timeline and look for any details that might have been accidentally missed. At this point, CME takes the logistics and vendor coordination off your plate, so that you (and your friends and family) can simply relax and be present for one of the most memorable days of your lives! Knowing that there is a company in your corner that has your best interests at heart really takes the pressure off the day. Then, the focus can be all about the two of you and your love story! Just as it should be!

From Design Boards to Full-service Planning

If planning and logistics are your thing, but you’re struggling creatively with design or theme, or just need some help honing your ideas into a singular vision, CME can help with that too! After you

 collaborate on your wedding design, CME will assemble a team of vendors that they believe can execute your vision and will help figure out even the smallest details, such as the floral centerpieces or place cards. Most importantly they will come up with a wedding design as unique as you are, which will reflect your personalities and incorporate your family traditions, while still staying within the budget you have set!

But, maybe you need help with all of it, and there’s no shame in that either! CME can do anything from creating your wedding budget to helping you to maintain it, to any other detail you can possibly think of! Full-service planning means just that. It means you will have step by step guidance through every detail and step of the process!

Behind Every Successful Business is a Great Team

At CME, Carly Marie knows that in order to be successful it’s imperative to surround yourself with great people! And, that’s true whether you’re running an event business or trying to plan your wedding, which is why she expanded her team to include Penn Broughton, wedding planner extraordinaire, and the wonderful Savannah Edmunson, wedding planner & lead coordinator. As a final note –  and some would say the most important – CME believes that love is love, and as such is excited and honored to work with couples of all faiths, genders, races and sexual orientations!
