Meet the Team
I’ve always had a deep passion for organizing, planning, and decorating which is why I chose to start my own event planning business. I am from Asheville, North Carolina, but currently call Raleigh my home. I was skeptical that this growing metropolitan area would steal my heart away from my beloved Blue Ridge Mountains, but it has nonetheless. I love to spend my free time adventuring with my precious fur-baby, Abbie, but also scrolling through Pinterest or planning my next social gathering. I also have a deep love for Wolfpack sports, no matter how much they may break my heart.
Completing 30+ weddings in my first 2 years of wedding planning, I have experience with a variety of budgets, styles, and venues in the area! My new favorite wedding trend is wildflower weddings!!
Owner and Lead Planner
Wedding Planner and Coordinator
I've have had a passion for event planning since I was a little girl. I grew up as an Air Force brat moving all over the world and have always enjoyed learning and experiencing new cultures. Since I was little, I watched my mother plan holiday parties, birthdays, and events at our house and gradually gained the same passion for entertaining. I always had creative talents and loved the F&B, music, art, sports, and entertainment industries; always enrolling in classes to creatively express myself. I knew I wanted to be a Special Event/Wedding Planner after falling in love with my favorite movie The Wedding Planner and realizing we had similar personalities with many perfectionist traits.Throughout my time as an intern with Designs by Devereux, I was able to learn and work many grand weddings and events such as one that was featured on The Real Housewives of Atlanta for Cynthia Bailey! I’ve always loved to serve people within the hospitality industry and strive to make clients’ visions come to life. I can’t wait to plan your next event!
The idea of helping people bring their dreams to life is something that I have always been interested in. Whether it was mother’s day outings or surprise birthday parties, I loved seeing what other's envisioned, and then trying my best to execute it in a beautiful and meaningful way. As I reached my early twenties, I realized that this passion didn’t have to stay in the personal outskirts of my social life, but could instead be a major aspect of my professional life, through the pursuit of being a wedding planner. I am originally from the valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and just recently moved to the Capital of North Carolina, Raleigh NC. Though I miss my sunsets and spontaneous mountainous adventures, I have found Raleigh to be a wonderful place to experience my twenties in. When I am not helping out with weddings, you could find me reading a cliche romance novel, practicing my photography skills, or pushing my creativity through songwriting and music. Whatever your dream wedding or event looks like, I cannot wait to help you bring it to life!
Wedding Planner and Coordinator
I’m Krista Coley and I’m from Apex, North Carolina. I am currently a junior at North Carolina State University majoring in business administration. I have always loved romance movies and the idea of love in general. I never thought about incorporating my passion for love into work before starting to work for Brianna. Through this experience I have continued my passion for love while also adding a new found passion for event planning. Being able to be involved in making someone’s wedding day run smoothly is equally amazing at every wedding I have helped with and I can’t wait to help with more!
