Dogwood Gatherings and Events

Family Owned Team Planning Weddings Across the Carolinas


Dogwood Gatherings and Events is a full-service NC wedding planning service owned by a husband and wife team, Addie and Michael Thompson. Since 2014, they have been serving the Raleigh/Durham wedding community. They’ve also gradually branched out to the entire state, and Charleston.

Dogwood Gatherings will help you plan a beautiful wedding, without breaking the bank. They keep their rates affordable. Also, they offer partial planning and officiant services along with a wide range of items their couples can use on the day of the wedding to keep costs down. From vendor recommendations to budget planning, this husband and wife team wants you to feel like a guest at your own wedding! They are experts in maximizing those hours to get the design done. Additionally, this team is always on the lookout for the best packages they can provide from your other vendors.

Experienced and Reputable Central NC Wedding Planner

Dogwood Gatherings plans weddings across the state, but started their business while living in the NC Triangle. From a Cary office, they got to know this region well. And this is where they earned such a stellar reputation.

That being said, Dogwood Gatherings has always planned events state-wide. One of the first events we attended designed by Addie was The Big Fake Wedding in Charlotte, NC in 2021. Our team was blown away by her creativity, as well as the smooth operation.

Since then, we have gotten to know Addie well. And, we’ve featured several of her styled shoots and real weddings. Today, we confidently attest to her phenomenal organization and steadfastness. It’s no wonder couples feel safe in the hands of the Dogwood Gatherings team.

If you are interested in a Charleston wedding event, Addie is also your gal! Get married in the top US destination city. As you can imagine, having a local planner to guide you through this would be extra useful! Addie did not claim to be a Charleston wedding planner without experience and research. She’s taken the time to get to know this community too. In fact, she planned the wedding of one of the Triangle Media Partner owners. TMP is the Heart of NC Weddings parent company, so we heard rave reviews from our own company president.
