Who are we

Get to Know Us


Catherine Bell

Owner/Lead Planner

I am a small-town girl with really big dreams! 

As long as I can remember I have always loved weddings. I think I planned weddings every day for my Barbies for years, and as I grew that feeling only got stronger. 

I met my amazing husband a few years ago and planned the wedding of my dreams in Asheville NC, thus sparked my life's journey to be a wedding planner in Western North Carolina. Although, my traveling side is never content so the Southeast is where I love to roam. 

I am the youngest daughter of 3, and once you meet me... sadly it makes sense. I am a very family-oriented person and it shows during the holidays or any family event. 

I married the love of my life and best friend 4 years ago. We have the sweetest little fur baby family! It is safe to say you will be hearing about my dogs and cat more often than not. Heck, I might even show you some photos. 

I love all things weddings, coffee, and Harry Potter. I absolutely love to think outside of the box, and that is no different for your wedding day. 

My favorite thing as your wedding planning BFF is to bring out your truest self on your wedding day. So your guests walk away with a lasting impression of YOU, reminiscing back on their favorite highlights that characterized YOUR day for years to come. Is your favorite color black? Cool, let's make lots of that happen. Do you love your dog like it is your biological baby? I will help you make sure your guests know that. Did you and your significant other bond over your love of Friends, The Office, Harry Potter, or Mario Kart? Oh my gosh, please sign me up to make that wedding day magic! 

I love to have fun and become friends with you. Wedding planning can be so stressful, so let us make it a little less so by having me by your side. I cannot wait to help make your dreams come true! Let the planning begin!
