The C & D Events Team

The C & D Collective is a unique group of planning professionals, each with their own personalities and flare for the job. Their business’ core values are: Service, Hospitality, and Family. Each planner has multiple years of experience planning weddings and coordinating events all across NC! The Collective offers packages ranging from Event Management, Partial Planning, and Full Wedding Planning services.  With wonderful relationships in the local industry, they have great recommendations for couples.

The C & D Collective has been a member of Heart of NC Weddings for many years. In that time we have featured several of their weddings and styled shoots, and also experienced events they planned via our local events professional organization. We have personally gotten to know Courtney, Dana and the entire team. Not only are they extremely talented women, but the most down-to-earth, kind individuals you will meet. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Upscale Wedding Planning

C & D Events offers various wedding planning packages that will cover the needs of most couples. But now, C&D Events has a luxury wedding planning line. If you envision high end wedding or full-service experience, we recommend Anthem House!
