Meet Carly Marie

I am the biggest romantic you will ever meet - I love, love. I love being around people who are in love. Knowing that I am able to be a part of, and help my clients create, the happiest day of their lives gives me all the feels. I like to say that hopeless romantic + type a personality = wedding planner.

A fews facts about me:

My personal style is very classic with a twist – think little black dress, but with an amazing pair of high heels

You can find me working on my laptop sitting at a coffee or cocktail bar, preferably with my black lab, Reese, at my feet

I love going to the movies, and am a sucker for a good sitcom

love to cook!

I am 15 minutes early to everything (a blessing and a curse)

My perfect meal is buffalo chicken pizza and red wine

Dahlias and Ranunculus are my favorite flowers
