Considering this stunner in September kicked things off, it has been one of our busiest and prettiest fall seasons to date! 🍁✨🍂 From Aspen to the Crystal Coast here in NC, a handful of spectacular weddings at our beloved Umstead, celebrating a former intern’s big day and one of the dreamiest engagement parties for another legacy client, this has truly been such a special season for our team and we CAN NOT WAIT to share the abundance of beauty we’ve been producing over these last four weeks. (And cheers to the three lovely couples we have yet to send down the aisle this fall! 🥂) Our feet may be a little (okay, *very*) tired 😅 but our hearts are overflowing with gratitude and excitement from the fun we’ve been having with some of the most amazing families! 🤍

Loved this tablescape for Brittany and Ben’s August wedding! We modernized the farm tables with matte black flatware and clear glass chargers, then rounded out the place setting with soft and subtle floral patterned plates. 🤍 Incredibly lush floral runners stole the show and featured the most perfect hydrangea variety that our late summer dreams are made of. 🌿

We’re savoring these last weekends of summer before busy season gears up but also can’t hold back our excitement of the fun fall schedule right around the corner. 🤍 Especially ready to head back to Atlantic Beach in October…there’s just something about weddings on the Crystal Coast that we can’t get enough of! 🐚

One of our absolute favorite design aesthetics? Grandmillennial style. 🤍

Using traditional touches such as blue and white ceramics, Chinoiserie details, Chintz linens and other dainty patterns to anchor the scene while adding contemporary accents creates a colorful and interesting, yet classic, design. And we just can’t get enough of it! 😍

Hey y’all! I’m Elizabeth, the new owner and CEO of . (Feels surreal typing that!) I am honored to step into this role to continue the success of the company, and have been so well-prepared as I’ve learned from two of the best to ever do it. (Thanks Megan and Gina!)

Gina is still on board as our beloved COO and an exceptional planner, while splitting her time with Megan at . The rest of our team (Lacey, Alyssa, and Victoria) are enthusiastically diving in to this new chapter with us as well! 👏🏻

As our reputation precedes us, we will always aim to serve our clients with great care to produce well-organized, logistically seamless wedding days. We also take great pride in elevating these weddings with exquisite designs and extraordinary, personalized details.

We feel strongly that a “Southern wedding” has no limitations! We are inclusive of all couples and every style, as we believe that love is diverse and has no boundaries. 💙

A few facts to get to know me!

*I was married in December to my husband Kendall and we have a senior maltichon (Bella)!

*I am obsessed with celebrating the seasons and holidays. We put up 7+ Christmas trees every year! 💘🐰🇺🇸🎃🎄

*I am a graduate of UNC and will never let you forget my love for the Heels! 🐏

*I am one of Martha Stewart’s biggest fans and consider myself a “millennial Martha”! 🙌🏼

*I grew up on a farm and am a big plant lady…I spend lots of time outside gardening in warmer months. 👩🏻‍🌾

*Two of of my favorite destinations are New Orleans and Charleston…I love old Southern architecture (yes to big front porches!) and the foodie culture of both. 🍽

*I adore the Golden Girls and had a Golden Girls bachelorette last Halloween! 🌴 (also, I LIVE for a good theme party 😂)

*My favorite part of my job is the design process. I aim to make every wedding that I plan distinctive and unexpected. My bread and butter is the high level design client, with lots of custom, sentimental details. ✨

Thank you for all of your support in our transition! Our team is looking forward to producing many more magical weddings and are proud to carry on Megan’s legacy! 🥂

A note from Megan:

As we approach 12 years of amazing and joy-filled events this summer, I want to take a moment and say thank you from the bottom of my heart. 
Thank you to every family that has trusted us to be part of their celebration over the years.  Thank you to all the incredibly talented and caring vendors that show up and help us bring the magic to life for our clients.

There are so many more celebrations to come and the team here at is made up of some of the most caring, creative, professional and kind-hearted women I know.  It is because of this dynamic team that I find myself incredibly thrilled and proud to announce that one of those amazing team members, Elizabeth Flake, will be stepping into an official leadership role as the new owner and CEO of A Southern Soiree.  Elizabeth has an eye for design that is unmatched and a wonderfully creative side that has paired so well with her warmth and professionalism as a lead planner over the last few years.  I can't wait to see what she does to continue to grow A Southern Soiree in new ways.

It was one of the greatest honors of my life to build A Southern Soiree into what it is today, serve so many wonderful couples, and build and lead such a fantastic team.  Now, I get to step into the role of A Southern Soiree's #1 cheerleader and watch the magic of what will come next with this dynamic team.

If we had the opportunity to work together over the last 12 years and you'd like to stay connected, I'd love for you to say hey over on or where I will be continuing to serve the wedding industry as an educator and speaker.

Sending so much love out to Elizabeth and the incredible ladies of A Southern Soiree (Gina, Alyssa, Lacey and Victoria!) as well as all the friendors and clients who helped us get to this place. Xoxo, Megan 🤍

When planning your wedding, you think about how everything will look in the photos: the altar, the place setting, the seating chart… but what about the food? 🦪⁣⁣⠀
⁣⁣⠀
While the appearance of the food may not be as important as the quality and taste, you may want to be mindful of how the presentation matches the other details and themes that make up your wedding day! ⁣⁣⠀
⁣⁣⠀
If you have any fun ideas for some of your menu selections, let your planner know...they can work with your catering staff to come up with unique and personalized ways to serve your guests! ⁣⁣⠀

If you haven’t yet, meet one of our planners, Lacey! 🤍

Hey there, I’m Lacey! ⁣⁣⠀
I have worked in several facets of the events industry over the last 10+ years (that sure makes me feel old!). If forced to choose, it would be the behind-the-scenes logistics on wedding day and the magic of watching it all come together that is my absolute favorite. In planning and life, I love forming connections with others.⁣⁣⠀

💜Fellow ECU pirate & dog mom here to Max ( y/o Labradoodle). He keeps me on my toes! My niece & nephews make my world go round! 🌎

The aisle is often overlooked when thinking about ceremony design but we believe the aisle is just as important as the altar. With a backdrop as lovely at the Biltmore, we aimed to play off the view without taking away from it. ⁣⁣⠀

This regal black aisle anchored the entire ceremony space and contrasted so well with Taylor and Clark's lush white florals! ⁣⁣⠀

Why do you think people cry at weddings? Possibly, because opening your heart to someone else is the most sacred thing you can do. Linda and Tunde's ceremony was a profound demonstration of this and we wish them both a lifetime of unending love! ⛲️🕊
