Erin + Sean’s flowery and modern late summer wedding took place at The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve in Raleigh, North Carolina. Erin + Sean paired soft pastels, bold teal, and dark stoneware accents to create a balance of warmth and modern structural inspirations to their celebration. The couple included a whiskey blending unity ritual in their ceremony.

Our team worked with Erin + Sean through COVID-19 reschedules and a whole lot of uncertainty around guest count and event date. The spreadsheet where we organized what dates all of their vendors were available to reschedule was honestly pretty epic in hindsight!

Erin works for the NC Symphony (as an event producer!) and it was so awesome that some of her friends from the symphony were able to play music for the ceremony and cocktail hour. It is also just an absolute delight when we get to work with clients who also work in the event biz, Erin used every last document and spreadsheet we offer, packed them with details, and made our role as event managers that much easier!

Erin shared a lovely review of our team and services on Google, which we wanted to share here as well:

I used Folie à Deux Events for both my wedding coordination and my florist for my September 2021 wedding. Erica was so incredibly helpful! My wedding was originally scheduled for May 2021, and when it came time to postpone she helped us figure out availabilities for all our other vendors and also helped us navigate the decision making process around Covid restrictions. Erica and her team were so incredibly on top of it at the rehearsal and on the wedding day. I work in event planning myself, and it felt incredible to let go and let someone else worry about the timeline on my big day! Many members of the wedding party noted that Erica’s team was discreet but also incredibly helpful and present throughout the evening. The flowers that Folie à Deux created for me were also absolutely incredible. I got so many compliments on them. Erica captured the exact look I was going for and I couldn’t be more happy with the how everything turned out. I highly recommend Folie à Deux Events for both florals and planning services!
