folie à deux – noun.
Folie à Deux Events is a Chapel Hill, NC based wedding planning and event design service. My mission is to help you create a beautiful, cohesive look for your event that is inspired by your values and personal style. I specialize in the alternative and unexpected, and I always love a challenge.
My process is all about collaboration and listening to the unique ideas presented by my clients. I am not going to push you toward vendors or styles that don’t fit your needs. I feel that wedding planners should inhabit the role of educator as much as an organizer or designer.
I started Folie à Deux Events in 2016 after a life long obsession with theme parties and theatrics. If you went back in time and asked High-School Erica, I would have never have expected I would wind up in the wedding industry. But fast forward to 2008 and I opened my first business as a wedding gown designer & blogger, gradually making a professional shift toward wedding & party planning.
I am originally from Upstate New York and then spent 8 years in NYC studying fashion at the Fashion Institute of Technology while working a variety of day jobs in couture fashion, interior design, finance, and the luxury car business. Now I live in Chapel Hill, NC with my cute husband, James, two cats, Midna and Kira, and our dog, Cody. My other obsessions include craft beer, sewing, hiking, writing, and sci-fi/fantasy stuff.
My style is modern and inspired by haute couture fashion & interior design trends as much as it is inspired by wedding trends. Geometry, bold colors, and natural elements are my favorite design mediums.
