Planning a wedding like yours is an artform

Wherever the wedding winds blow


“Carly has an ability to make you feel like you are her only client.”

Ashley + Patrick

I happily serve couples in Texas and the Tri-State area—but I have the vendor connections, expertise and insatiable wanderlust it takes to produce one-of-a-kind wedding weekends near, far and across all of your favorite corners of the earth.

Industry lingo, numbers pulled out of thin air and a to-do list that never stops growing—for far too long, planning a wedding has been all-consuming and overstimulating. I’m here to flip that tired script by listening closely, advocating fiercely, designing without boundaries and executing impeccably.

I’ll build the ideal dream-team for your vision, perform the due-diligence it takes to ensure you reap the full benefit of your budget, communicate honestly and in a way that suits your style and schedule and—yes—answer the phone when you call. Your only job? Taste cake, sip cocktails and savor every second of this epic slice in time.

Full-Service Wedding Planning

Raise a glass—but don’t lift a finger


“Our favorite part about planning with Carly was when you had a question, she gave straight answers—whether they were good or bad—which gave us a realistic approach to the day.”

Partial Wedding Planning

Support as you celebrate


“These services are totally worth it and made wedding planning easier than I could have ever imagined.”


I believe it’s time to replace the chore of planning a wedding with the excitement of curating an experience. To replace weddings rooted in Instagram trends with gatherings steeped in originality. To replace pressure, pigeon-holing and Pinterest loops with the freedom to make your own intentional choices.

If you agree, I have a feeling you’ll love the way we plan and party here.

Rare, remarkable and reimagined—here you come.
