Our dedication to serving our clients is truly unmatched. We work all over the US and North Carolina, and will travel far and wide to make sure our Brides are happy! Our team is built on love and faith at it's core - seeing the the twinkle in a bride’s eye when she tells us her vision, and the sound of “I feel so much better...” after a bridal meeting is music to our ears.

When it comes to serving with heart and showing up to get the job done, Starnes & Co. Event Planning has you covered. Our team is a beautifully curated collection of expert planners that have combined years of industry experience and continued education to give you a perfect client experience every time. Our planners have executed various events ranging from small elopements, to large weddings, and conference and retreats!
