Our Full Service Design package offers a hands-on comprehensive approach to creating your ideal wedding day. We want to meet you where you are in your wedding plans and assist you through every detail along the way.

At Erin McLean Events our goal is to provide you superior and exclusive service. We focus on a select number of full service brides per year to achieve the highest level of dedication to you.

We believe in real weddings and creating experiences that are a true representation of our clients, their relationship, and the things that make them the happiest. We believe that each wedding tells a story. The story of your friendship, families, history, and your love. Your wedding design should reflect those things and the celebration of your new life together!

Erin McLean Events works with you to create visual memories while creating new traditions of your own. We will meet with you to sketch out your wedding design and create a design plan that brings your vision to life through colors, florals, linens, textures, furniture, lighting, paper goods, and more.

We are with you throughout the planning process and will be onsite to seamlessly execute your vision and logistics the weekend of your wedding. Our goal is for you, your family, and your guests to have a truly lovely experience being a part your wedding day. Read less

I don't think I could say enough amazing reviews about Carrington with Erin McLean Events! She truly made my dreams come true! From the moment I met her, she made sure that we knew THE day was about my now husband and I, and she would take care of the rest. And she did just that! She took so much stress off, not only myself but my mom as well! She was there for us, kept in great touch with us, and answered my millions (!!!) of emails and even my 3am text the morning of my wedding! She is not only the sweetest person ever but also extremely personable (which I feel like is a must when planning the day that you have dreamed about since you were a little girl!). Carrington is also very attentive and made sure everything went as we talked about. It was like a breath of fresh air and we were honored to have Carrington to take such great care of us!!!! HIGHLY recommend!

Erin and I went to high school together and since we both ended up living in the Raleigh area, she was the first person I reached out to about wedding planning. We exchanged emails and phone calls before decide what aspect of their planning services would work best for us. We chose the "weekend of" coordination. Carrington was our assigned planner and she reached out to us. She was willing to meet on weekends and after hours due to our schedule with work and our 3 year old daughter. We had multiple phone calls and face to face meetings and while she did not design our wedding she was very helpful in where I should focus and where it wasn't as necessary. I dropped off car loads of centerpieces and ceremony decor to her office the week of the wedding. While I was glad to have it out of my house it is nerve wracking to spend all this time on something and hope you've done a good enough job conveying your thoughts so someone else would make it happen. AND SHE DID!! The ceremony was exactly how I envisioned it, the centerpieces came together beautifully, and Carrington was on top of making sure everyone was where they needed to be. I had compliments from family about her organization and personal way of dealing with the chaos of the rehearsal and wedding day. Guests complimented us on how smoothly things ran and how there weren't any gaps throughout our transition times. We came back from our honeymoon to a hand drawn and water color painting of my bouquet with a beautiful card from her. It's sweet touches like that that make working with Erin and Carrington such a pleasure. It was money well spent and we would do it again a thousand times over.

I worked with Nicole at Erin McLean events for my wedding. I actually came across Nicole when my original day-of coordinate didn't work out. It was less than a month to my wedding date, and Nicole was referred to me by my venue coordinator. Can I just say that was one of the best decisions of my wedding planning experience. Nicole swept in and took control of the final planning steps and relieved building stress and to-do's that had piled up. Nicole was professional, fun, and my parents adored her too. Everyone was so glad I found Nicole to fun a flawless wedding day. My only regret was not bringing her on sooner!!

I was planning my wedding from outside North Carolina so I knew from the beginning that I was interested in getting a wedding planner, if possible for me to a planner with whom I could work well. I was lucky enough to find Nicole Goodrich, currently a member of the Erin McLean team. She is incredible, and I couldn't have found a better support. She was detailed, knowledgeable and really was fantastic at helping make my vision reality. Also, when Hurricane Joaquin decided to crash the wedding, she was so great and calming while locations and details were constantly changing. I cannot recommend Nicole enough.

My experience with Erin Mclean Events was excellent from start to finish. I had the pleasure of working with Nicole Goodrich and her attention to detail, fantastic energy, and creative problem-solving skills are the makings of a true wedding planner. She will think of anything you haven't, and she's great to bounce ideas off of in the planning process. She is always quick to respond to emails and on the day of the wedding she was extremely quick and efficient and seemingly on top of every detail.

I also worked with Carrington in the beginning of planning stages and I would have been just as confident working with her. She was very warm, organized, and creative.

I only met with Erin briefly but she was lovely as well. She is running a truly top-notch events planning company.

We worked with Carrington to plan our Sunday brunch wedding in Chapel Hill and it was a fabulous experience! She was very supportive of all of our ideas and brought a lot to the table. She really put me at ease that everything would be taken care of, even though we were planning from DC, and it certainly was! I received nothing but glowing compliments from our guests and I could not recommend her and the entire Erin McLean Events team highly enough. It was a fantastic experience to work with them and our weekend was absolutely perfect!

I had the pleasure of working with Nicole Goodrich as my wedding planner for my large Persian wedding in DC. Nicole was so wonderful to work with from the very beginning. She was excellent at managing the various personalities of my vendors and family and effortlessly made sure everyone got along and that my wishes were met. It is not easy for me to let go of control and I completely trusted Nicole and she completely delivered! It was a large wedding with several vendors and many details that needed to be executed for the night to run smoothly. Nicole put in so much work behind the scenes to orchestrate with the vendors in advance and also on the wedding day. It was a traditional Persian ceremony and Nicole learned what that entails and even perfectly executed the "Sofreh Aghd" on the wedding day. She remained calm and organized on the wedding day and the day went by so smoothly. Nicole was my favorite vendor and one that I will recommend over and over again. She was worth every single penny and the day simply would not have been the spectacular day it was without her!!

I can't say enough about Carrington Clevenger-Buck from Erin McLean Events! She's fantastic!

I have to say that I had my doubts initially that this young, perfectly put-together woman would understand how to guide a woman who only wanted a simple ceremony, but was coaxed into having a full wedding. I was still resisting the idea of a full wedding and reception for a second wedding. I had not a clue of what design I wanted except it should be simple and family-focused.

Those doubts left 10 minutes into our first conversation. She helped me figure out my perfect design by asking simple questions. Palette, textures and design came easy and was painless. From there Carrington led the way, providing tools so we could stay on track in our planning, timeline and BUDGET. Fighting for us when needed. Don't let her petite size fool you, when it comes to her brides, she's a protective angel with expansive wings. I traveled for work almost every week before our wedding. Carrington worked with my schedule for meetings, and calls, and communicated regularly via email and text.

Come our wedding day, I was at ease. I knew I didn't have to worry about what was going during the flip at All Saints Chapel, because Carrington would address any issues that arose. She kept us all on schedule, including a few who are known for following their own clock. The team that worked on our small wedding (less than 100) were attentive to the details that added that special touch. Making blending our two families who all live out-of-state a true delight.

I’d highly recommend Erin McLean Events for wedding design and day-of wedding coordination.

Carrington is truly amazing! She made my dream wedding a reality (while staying on budget). She made the entire process stress free and kept everyone calm the day of. Throughout the planning process I felt like I was talking with a friend as she was always available and knew just what I needed. One of Carrington's best qualities as a wedding planner is her attention to detail and that truly showed as every aspect of our wedding was beautiful and perfect. Carrington gave us the ability to enjoy our wedding, leaving us with no concerns on the day of the wedding. As I said, she's amazing! Do yourself a favor and meet with Carrington to plan your dream wedding!
