Your Charlotte Wedding and Event Planner

Client Love

I recently attended the wedding of my sister in law and Purposely Designed was the event planner. I, along with many guests were thoroughly impressed with how well executed and designed it was. I was also very delighted with the planning team, one of the assistants even noticed I was feeling warm and offered me a fan to use (Thank you, Brittney). Highly recommend and would give 10 stars if I could. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.”

Helen Kidane, Purposely Designed Guest

“The wedding went off without a hitch! The ceremony was beautifully designed and well coordinated, the cocktail hour and transition back into the main space was flawless. 

Where do I even start? For two years, Purposely Designed Event Planning has worked hard to make sure we planned the wedding of our dreams. From start to finish Purposely Designed Events made our wedding their priority and still checking in afterwards. So please if you are planning your wedding, or even a special event that means something to you, please book Patrice and her team. You will not regret it. Now go ahead and book your planner bestie and plan the event of your dreams!”

“My wedding day was a fairytale and beyond anything that I could have imagined.

You got engaged, cried tears of joy, replied to all the “congratulations” messages, and now that the dust has settled…

You’re spiraling down a Pinterest and Instagram rabbit hole, lost in the inspo details before you even have a big picture. You’re not even sure how much to make your “inspo” a reality.

If “I don’t know where to start was a person,” it would be you. Whether you’re the type to be completely hand-off or on, the last thing you want is anxiety surrounding one of the happiest days of your life.

The list of to-do’s grows by the hours, and you struggle to find a wedding planner that can interpret your vision.

You and your partner have plans to buy a house, start a family and build a life together. You don’t want a wedding to get in the way of your future. You’re on the verge of throwing your hands up and eloping.

When we’re done, you’ll want to relive your “I do.”

To get a “no detail left-out,” kind of wedding, these are the kind of planners you need:

Planners that prioritize you first, and give you the freedom to truly express yourself. You can take a deep breath in the midst of the bliss to digest that your wedding is truly you and your partner to the core.

Your dream wedding can only get accomplished when you are with an experienced, professional and well-rounded team.

A meticulous team that takes the reins and provides your family, friends and loved ones with an amazing moment to celebrate your love. Your family won’t stop raving about the food, your reception and even the detailed table settings.

Ones that understand the pressure you feel, and do everything in their power to relieve it. They remain level-headed, and handle issues before you even know they’re happening.

The process


Once you complete your inquiry form, we’ll schedule a meeting, so I can hear where you are in the process. This will be our opportunity to get to know each other, and decide if we’re mutually a perfect couple.

 First Comes Love


You’ll decide if you’re ready for a commitment. We’ll send a service proposal that will house all of our project details, invoice and contract.

Pop the Question


Once you’re an official client, we’ll have our onboarding meeting, and you’ll receive a few questionnaires that detail you as a couple, your budget and design vision.

Relationship Status: Updated


Based on your questionnaires, we’ll send our recommended vendors and begin our monthly check-ins. We’ll create a timeline that works for all parties, but most importantly: you!

Choose Your Wedding Dream Team


We’ll finalize your timeline, and align with your vendors to ensure everyone is on the same page. We’ll finally have your rehearsal, to prepare for The Big Day.

Engagement Bliss 


Your Wedding Day will arrive! We’ll execute your timeline to a tee, while you drink and be merry.

Meet Us at the Altar

“If you are looking for a Wedding Planner, look no further. Patrice is next level. 

She is patient, she is kind, she has great ideas and is organized. I met Patrice 10 months before my wedding and from the first conversation, I knew she was the right planner for me. I received so many compliments the day of my wedding about Patrice as well as the professionalism of her team. I would highly recommend Patrice to any bride.”
