Hi, I’m Colleen!

I am super excited to be Erin’s new event assistant. I love weddings and all of the details that go into planning them. I mean, what could be more fun than helping someone plan their dream day? I can’t wait to meet you all in person, but for now I thought I would share a little bit about myself!

I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC. I am very blessed to have a wonderful family with incredibly supportive parents and a great younger sister.

When I was at the young age of 16, I started dating the guy I would end up spending the rest of my life with. His name is Matt and he is the biggest blessing in my life. We have been married for almost 3 years and have so much fun together! We love Carolina sports, eating good food, and spending time with our families.


Speaking of fun, we have the sweetest black lab named Kenan. He is my best bud!


After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill (go Heels!) a few years ago, Matt and I moved to Atlanta as a newlywed couple. Living in Atlanta was so much fun and we made lifelong friends while there, but we were excited to move back to North Carolina last summer. Now we live in Charlotte and love it! Upon moving here, I decided that it was time to focus on working in an environment that I’m passionate about. With unending support from my husband, I started to pursue wedding and event design. That’s when I met Erin! As all of you already know, she is great and I already love working with her!

My first bit of business is spearheading a new blog series called “Simply Southern Says” (think Simon Says, but with weddings & events. When Simon Says to do it – you do, when Simply Southern Says its cool – it clearly is!!)  So check with us every Tuesday for your weekly dose of “Simply Southern Says!”
